I agree there is a misplaced fear of the Boogie Man. I commented on air about my experience with an amber alert for my nephews. Now after my personal experience I'm very skeptical about that system and how it's being used.
We're so eager to find a "bad guy" to pin it on, when sometimes there is no "bad guy" But that doesn't make for an exciting story.
In my family's case the amber alert system was used to alert the public when there was no need and the info that was put out was completely wrong. I'm skeptical now about the info that is put out in these kind of cases.
