Stop The Irving Texas Police From Being Reprimanded!

According to an article in July 1st edition of The Dallas News, The Irving Police Department could face an informal reprimand for issuing an Amber Alert for 2-year-old Elian Majano, who disappeared from a park more than a week ago and is still missing.

Evidence of abduction is a requirement for activating the regional alert system, but Police Chief Larry Boyd said there was no such evidence in this case. The task force that runs the local system reviews each alert to determine whether it was warranted.

The Texas AMBER Alerts criteria is too strict now as it is. But to reprimand them for putting the safety and wellbeing of a 2 year old boy first is idiotic. What should they have done said Heck he is 2 i'm sure he just went out for a smoke and left it at that?

Show Texas that the Irving Police did the right thing! I suggest emailing the author of the article Jeff Mosier and tell him how you feel.

    What I don't understand is according to the NCMEC there are 116 Amber Alert systems and each state establishes it's own criteria.

    In some of the articles I read concerning this lttle boy, the mother was also less than forthcoming with specific circumstances surrounding his disappearance.

    Aren't missing children a National issue? Shouldn't there be National criteria?
