A group of Torontonians' controversial responses to an Ontario amber alert has caused an uproar on Twitter Thursday morning. Ontario Provincial Police issued the warning at about 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the request of the Toronto police. The alarm was later canceled after police located the 13-year-old boy and 15-year-old girl who were the subject of it. Officials initially reported that the two teens were last spotted in the city’s west end with their father.\nDespite the situation’s happy ending, there were still some Ontarians who thought it was disrespectful for the police to send out the alert so late at night. “Another false alarm that woke me up,” wrote one user while questioning the validity of the alarm. “Ontario Amber Alerts aka parental custody disputes,” wrote another.\nThe outburst of complaints caused an equally massive backlash from residents who support the alerts, who saw the attacks on the system as selfish.\n“If people are that worked up about the amber alert notifications in Ontario, why don't that take their frustration out on the people stealing the fucking kids?” wrote one angry user in response to the criticism.\n“For those who complain about being woken up by an amber alert, there is a special place in hell for you! Rant over,” wrote another.\nOntario Amber Alert has been cancelled. The children have been located safe.— AMBER Alert Ontario (@AMBERAlertONT) November 7, 2019\nWell that's just great now that I'm awake and unable to go to sleep and may I add live half a day away from where the "abduction" took place!

This may save many lives!!!!— Rose (@Kissesrose) November 7, 2019\nGood but the alert sound has been continually going off since around 5 am. Please ensure it stops.— Happydays (@Happyda73176532) November 7, 2019\nPeople.... you know you can silence the alert and still receive the texts right? Just saying.— Mike Greene (@greeneragency) November 7, 2019\nThe same message 4 times in a couple hours? Your system is broken and needs to be fixed. Forcing people to see your broken system messages multiple times a night without consent is a violation of my rights as a Canadian. pic.twitter.com/f81qhDP3dF— Jordan Christopher (@Foolich) November 7, 2019\nYou know what 100% of Ontario residents that get the amber alert are not doing? Getting out of bed and doing anything about it.— Don Caldwell (@DonnyInOttawa) November 7, 2019\nMan these Amber Alerts acting like Presedential level “you are going to fucking die in the apocalypse” alerts needs to stop. The province of Ontario needs to get with the times and use a tiered alert system— cadavaberry (@cadavaberry) November 7, 2019\nUntil recently, there had been calls for punishment against those complaining about the amber alert, especially after multiple people were reported calling 911 for previous alerts.\nHowever, Hamilton Police reported back in October, that a man had been arrested and charged with mischief after calling 911 to complain about the Amber Alert on October 1, 2019.\nAccording to police, the suspect called 911 to "purposely tie up emergency lines." Police explained that the individual was upset that the alarm went off while he was sleeping and told police that he would continue to call the line as revenge for the alert.\nThere are stories everywhere.
