Someone needs to be screening these.  Out of 100 Nixle and Amber alerts probably 1-2 are valid.  By that I mean that the alert is for a "bratty" teenager who decided to stay with her friends whom her parents do not like.
Remember the Alsop's Fable of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.

Yep. The latest straw is that they are somehow broadcasting these alerts to my cell phone!

On the flip side are children being stolen, raped, tortured and killed without a chance of being found until the Amber Alert system began helping us find them quickly. But I guess our momentary annoyance and cell phone batteries are more important than children.
