FALSE ALARM AND SOCIAL MEDIA CRYING WOLF: KANSAS CITY AMBER ALERT ABUSE!!!

KMBC reports local tech fail and the new media panic it created: "An Amber Alert issued Tuesday for a missing Texas girl who was believed to have been traveling through the Kansas City area was the result of misinformation in the case . . . The missing teen "probably wasn't in the Kansas City area at all, investigators said on Wednesday.""

People getting pissed at these so call alerts that mean nothing and scare their kids with the racket the phones make.

Amazing how you can get that crime rate down when you book those felons on misdemeanor charges and send the cases to city court instead of State court.
