People’s Reactions to the Amber Alert
Thomas Crawn there are different rules when it’s a parent, which appears may be the case. It used to be that police couldn’t do anything in a parental situation, it had to go to a family court judge before the police could do anything at all to help recover the children. That’ll cause quite a delay if that’s still the case.
I don’t know the situation but since he seems like he is the father im going to pray for his safety also. I don’t know what demons caused him to do this but in his mind, this seemed like the last resort.
Seems to me this is the Dad. He was probably ordered because he couldn’t see his kids. He probably got pissed off and said if I can’t see them I will take them. Hopefully, everything turns out OK.
Tiffani Hausch they made it sound like they were snatched off the street by a stranger is all they should watch how they are wording things- they were “abducted” they just were never returned to the custodial parent
