What is Wrong with People? Could Some Possibly be More Selfish and Self-Absorbed? … Complaining About an Amber Alert!
There are some people in Arizona who should be ashamed of themselves. You know who you are. An Amber Alert was issued on Monday in Arizona for the abduction of 1 year old Isidro Ramirez and his mother 20 year old Noemi Ramirez. The Amber Alert was broadcast on local Arizona TV. Believe it or not, people actually called the TV station to complain that their programming had been interrupted. Unbelievable.
Heaven forbid it be their child. How could a stupid TV show be that important to anyone over a missing person? When did people become some rotten and self-centered. The president & CEO of that station said the complaints fell on deaf ears … should have told them to suck eggs.
An Amber Alert interrupted prime-time television Monday, cutting into such popular shows as 24 and Heroes, much to the chagrin of viewers, many of whom complained.
The alert was issued for 1-year-old Isidro Ramirez, who was abducted along with his mother around 4:30 a.m. Monday.
To Art Brooks, the president and CEO of the Arizona Broadcasters Association and the state coordinator for Amber Alert, the complaints fall on deaf ears.
“If you’re the parent of that child, don’t you want it on as quickly as you can get it on?” he said. “End of story.” Viewers can see last night’s episode of 24 at myfoxphoenix.com; Heroes can be seen at nbc.com/Video/rewind. (AZ Central)
