Since when has amber been a color?

Ok, so lets say that this kinda creepy blading guy left a convience store, opens his trunk and yells at some kids in there, then speeds off. Believe it or not, he's not abducting them! Apparently this guy, Web Wilson, was telling his own kids, who had crawled into the trunk through a hole connecting the back seat to the trunk, to get back in the back seat. He sped off kinda fast because he was not used to the car he was in and hit the gas too hard. But wait, it gets funnier:

One laugh Wilson got is the blonde woman witnesses described in the front seat of Wilson's car. "That blonde woman is Wyatt, my 11-year-old son," he said.

Now Wilson doesn't have to worry about his wife, Angela Farley Wilson - a Met tennis champion - and her well-known tennis family getting all of the media attention.

"CNN. How funny is that?" he asked.

Actually, to answer your question, not that funny. Let's put it in perspective:

Earlier Friday, police were criticized by the family of 20-month-old Aliyah Myrick for not issuing an Amber Alert about her disappearance until 3 a.m. Friday, six hours after her mother called police to say her estranged husband had grabbed the girl and ran. The child was found dead about 10 a.m. Friday in a Mount Auburn park.
