Last night, countless people were woken up by a loud (if your phone wasn’t on silent) Amber Alert regarding 11-year-old Riya Rajkumar, who had been abducted by her father, 41-year-old Roopesh Rajkumar.
While most of those in the region were concerned for the child’s well-being, there were, unfortunately, many (many) people who were more concerned that the alert had woken them up.
And let’s get one thing clear, Amber Alerts aren’t new. We’ve received them before. Hell, we’ve even received test alerts before. If you don’t want to be woken up by one, mute your phone, or put it on Do Not Disturb. You have options.
Yet, countless people still thought their best move was to take to social media or email and call the police to complain about the late hour of the alert, all while a little girl’s life was hanging in the balance.
