Some a**hole called 911 TWICE to complain about the Amber Alert message

Feb 16 2019, 6:54 am

The Amber Alert for 11-year-old Riya Rajkumar resulted in many people selfishly complaining about being disturbed from the late night notifications on their phones.

Rajkumar was found dead in a residence in Brampton and her 41-year-old father, Roopesh Rajkumar, who had allegedly abducted her was found and arrested.

Despite the tragedy, someone felt the need to call 911 — not once, but twice — to express their anger about being woken up by the alert. As a result, the call tied up a phone line needed for an emergency.

“Last night’s urgent #Amberalert may have woken you up — but please don’t call #911 to complain. Someone just called 911 for a 2nd time to reaffirm how upset he was last night. That call tied up a line needed for an emergency,” wrote Toronto Police Deputy Chief Shawna Coxon, on Twitter.

What this person fails to understand is that the Amber Alert ended up being the reason the suspect’s vehicle was spotted and reported to police.

41-year-old Roopesh Rajkumar is now facing a first-degree murder charge.

According to Peel Regional Police, following Roopesh’s arrest this morning, authorities say there was a “medical concern” and he was taken to hospital. He has since been transported to a trauma centre, in police custody.

Once he is medically cleared by doctors, the legal process can begin.
