Amber Alert

This morning as I was getting ready for work the DJs were talking about the nine year old little girl in Florida who was kidnapped out of her bed Wednesday night. I H-A-T-E hearing stories like this.

apparently her grandparents put her to bed Wednesday night, laid out her school clothes for the next day, and opened her window for a nice breeze.

Thursday morning her dad went in to wake her up and her little bed was empty, the clothes untouched, meaning somewhere there is a little brunette girl hidden away in her nightgown.


Anyway, the DJs this morning were talking about how they want to implant GPS chips into their children to locate them if they are snatched.

Caller after caller rang up the station and said that they would jump on the procedure for their children as soon as it was made available.

I've been mulling this over all morning and I'm still not sure how I feel about it.

It sucks that we live in a world where so many people are worried about psychos stealing their kids.

It sucks that the only way to feel safe is by implanting a metal chip into a child.

It sucks that this technology, if we start using it, is SO prone to being abused....Just look what someone did to Paris Hilton's Sidekick. If someone can remotely hack into a phone/organizer what do you think they could do to a GPS beacon implanted in some little 5 year old's shoulder.

It really sucks that this poor little girl is in trouble.
