This is on our local news (DC Metro area)
In order for people to be on the lookout, would you please provide a working link and source for this Amber Alert.
Amber Alert my @$$. This is a non-custodial parent seizing custody, not a stranger abduction. When the Amber Alert system was set up they swore up, down, sideways, and all round Robin Hood’s barn that it would NOT be used for this.
Regardless of the circumstances, this precious child is caught in a mess and only You know the extent of the danger He faces. We pray that not one hair on his head would be harmed and that he would be returned safely. Work Your will in the lives of these parents so that Colin can know peace and security. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Yeah, not but 15 minutes ago I heard another Amber Alert here in San Diego. Suspect described as the father of the two missing boys.
This kind of crap just feeds the paranoia that children are being snatched from their bedrooms every day and that it's no longer safe to let your kids outside.
Statutory Shared parenting/'equal physical custody guidelines' is a crucial part of the Pro-Family movement.
Assuming this fellow is a fit parent, it's Tragic what people feel forced to do in desperation.
Right said. I don't even bother with these anymore because it seems like every one of them is a non-custodial parent taking the child. Why should a nationwide alert be sounded because of a custody dispute?
Shut up Citizen, and toe the line.
The father of those two boys shot their mother about 12 times, in front of them. She’s in critical condition. They found his black truck abandoned in Lancaster. He’s probably on his way to Mexico.
He needs to get a haircut, shave off that awful hair that is growing on his fat face, take a bath, and wear decent clothes to be credible.
Shedding a lot of fat would also help.
You’d shoot Santa, wouldn’t you?
However we're still waiting on the source name and a working link to the site where beachn4fun copied and pasted the published article posted above.
Well, they might have wanted to include that little detail in the Amber Alert. Nonetheless, this is exceptional. Most AAs are non-violent, parental abductions and hardly breaking news.
Details are racist.
What a beautiful and fitting prayer for this situation, to which a I add my Amen, in Jesus’Name.
Because men are ALWAYS wrong. Get with the program. /s
Assuming that his mom is a fit parent, of course. We don’t know that the court didn’t award custody based solely on parental gender.
Hard to say. Could be a multitude of circumstances.
Agreed, though the prayer was I added my amen to was for the safety of a child caught in an obviously difficult situation. God knows where that child is the safest, and we beseech Him to answer our prayers to keep him or restore this boy to that place.
I’m with you, though: some of these cases where the father is portrayed as a villain is simply a heartbroken dad who is frustrated with the system keeping him away from the child he deeply loves. My heart goes out to and breaks for such fathers and their children.
Mine wasn't as bad as most, we went into the divorce proceedings knowing two things:
We had done everything we could (short of murder or suicide, and that was a very close thing!) to avoid divorce, and
that every decision we made would be based on what was best for the kids.
Please feel free to post an unflattering photo of yourself so that the rest of us may critique your appearance. (Using your OWN standards, of course.)
Are you his brother?
Did she deserve it?..
Exactly. I refuse to participate in these (unless I had direct personal knowledge of the circumstances) because I suspect the majority of them are cases like this where I might be getting used to help enforce a custody judgment I would never have agreed with had I been there in person.
Even worse, how do I know there’s even a child involved and not just some guy the government has a beef against for not paying his taxes, or child support, or carrying a copy of the Constitution, etc. This system seems tailor made to persuade us to inform on people who may very well not have done what they’re telling us they did.
Kind of like the LE version of the legislative refrain “It for the chillrun........”
Sorry, I spotted this report on the news and local websites right about the same time I was logging off for the day and felt the urgency to post before closing down for the day.
You can ban me for one day for not adhering to FR protocol.
Thanks for providing one link to the story and for covering my butt.
