Last night was witness to a tragic story in Brampton, Ontario, when a young girl was found dead in a duplex. The mother of the 11-year old girl alerted officials yesterday afternoon when the girl's father did not return her at the agreed-upon time.

An Amber Alert was sent out late last night in an attempt to locate the father. He was eventually found thanks to a tip, when a driver recognised his car from the Amber Alert. Police have arrested her father as a potential suspect.

Many people are reacting to this story emotionally, but some for a different reason than others. Many are taking to Reddit and Facebook to complain about how the Amber Alert disturbed them last night.

TL;DR People are complaining about having been woken up by an Amber Alert last night because the Internet is the worst.

The couple had been separated for some time, and the father did not have full-time custody. The mother had agreed to let the father spend some time with the young girl on her birthday.

The father had previously made threats, menacing his former girlfriend and his young daughter.

The Amber Alert used to locate the father made many people angry. People are complaining that the alert woke them up. "I should be allowed to opt out, thank you," said one Reddit commenter. 

People took to Twitter to complain about the sound of the alarm.

Another commenter on Facebook had this to say: "Glad she is found. But i really think they need to rethink waking people up with alert ready for amber alert. Because even if phone on silent mode the alert came in and woke people up... Don't wake me up thinking its a tornado , flood forest fire or nuke if it is amber alert."

Because a storm is more important than a missing child, I guess...

Others are complaining because they got the alert far from the location of the crime.

However, the father was found hundreds of kilometers away from the crime scene. Police have to be thorough and methodical so that the murderer does not get away.

Can we PLEASE try to have a little more compassion for each other? Thank you.
