20 shallow tweets from Oklahomans complaining that an Amber Alert interrupted The Bachelor…

Last night, an Amber Alert was issued across the state for 4-year-old Justice Poindexter (pictured above) of Bixby. Fortunately, the boy and his abductor were located about an hour after the alert was issued.

Via News 9:

A 4-year-old Bixby boy was found about an hour after a statewide Amber Alert was issued Monday night.

Justice Poindexter was allegedly taken by his father's roommate.

Justice's father told News On 6 he got off work Monday afternoon and found his home ransacked and his child missing. It triggered an all-out search and an Amber Alert was issued around 8 p.m.

About an hour later, police received a call that the boy and the suspect, 31-year-old Natasha Hoch, were at the Kum & Go at 101st and Riverside. There, they found Justice safe with Hoch, who was taken into custody by the Jenks Police Department.

At this time, police had no information about a possible motive, but they did say the boy's father had left him in Hoch's care, while he was at work.

Court records show Hoch was convicted in 2009 of driving under the influence of drugs.

Justice's father said he was grateful to everyone who worked to quickly locate his son.

I don't care if you're getting gas, need a pack of gum, or are trying to kidnap a child. If you live in Tulsa, why would you ever choose Kum and Go over Quik Trip? At last check, there's a QuikTrip on every corner in Oklahoma's Second City. That would be like going with Wal-Mart over Target, the Barons over the Thunder, or Penn over May. It's just weird.

Although Justice is now safe and sound, some people were not too pleased that an Amber Alert was used to help rescue him. The alert apparently interrupted a key moment in last night's Bachelor broadcast, triggering a flurry of angry tweets from young, naive and complete shallow Oklahomans. Their embarrassing reactions are the type of things you'd expect to see from people who enjoy the lowest form of mind-numbing entertainment.

Here are 20 or so of them:

As is pretty typical with these types of posts, the ALL CAPS army was on patrol:

This dude wanted to let us know it's not gay to complain about an Amber Alert cutting into your kind of gay reality show:

Here's another great conversation about the ordeal. I posted it as a screenshot, because once again, the Wordpress Twitter embed function wasn't working properly. It's about a reliable as American Airlines.

Amber Alert is an emergency notification system that notifies the public that a child was kidnapped and is in danger.

I wouldn't use the word "officially." You still may grow a soul.


If you were shocked by some of these tweets, don't worry. Other people were, too:

Anyway, that's it. Kind of scary, huh?

Also, person who's about to say we're hypocrites for posting this. I know we like to joke around and complain about occasionally sensitive subjects on this site, but...

A) We've never complained about an Amber Alert interrupting a TV show. Granted, an Amber Alert hasn't been issued during the NBA Finals yet, but what are those odds?


B) At least we try to be funny. "Try" is the key word there. It's all about the effort.
