This story was all over the news yesterday.
Every radio station was repeating the lookout for that black Ford Taurus.
I saw electronic bulletin boards on the interstate about it.

What's the danger here?
This kid wasn't kidnapped.
Her father took her, in violation of a judge's custody order.
She called her mom afterward and said she is fine.

Is it just me, or is this being blown way out of proportion?

Or maybe there's more to the story than the public is being told (did the father make any threats of violence? Is he a molester?)

I believe if i hadn't had my kids back to my X at the moment she said to be there....she would have called on me.

And i had to drive them from Indiana to Wisconsin.

A lot of men get so screwed when it comes to time with their children.

Now in this case...not having all the facts, i don't know.
But the way it sounds, mother is just being a ______.

They did show the Dad's picture, at least on the noon news. And let me get this straight...someone is actually complaining about an Amber Alert? I've seen it all now.

And yes, the media may not be told the whole story.

Amber Alerts were created for stranger kidnappings. Now they are mostly used for custody disputes where the non-custodial parent (almost universally the father) keeps the kid to long during a visit.

This.

It's just a tool now used primarily to harass dads.

That's a shame, when it could be of good use in finding children kidnapped by criminals. Cry wolf too many times and the public will yawn at the next cry.
