Amber Alert at skytrain stations -- Could we have a picture with that?

In case you've been living under a rock, there's a massive search going on for a recently possibly-abducted child, Kienan Hebert. Just about everyone's splashed this "Amber Alert" to get the word out. You'll definitely see it on the televisions at the Skytrain stations.

That's great. But could we have pictures with that? One day of front-page newspaper coverage with pics isn't the same as mugshots to remind you of what they look like and for you to compare. They could be squashed against you on a busy skytrain and you wouldn't know it -- especially in Vancouver where people do seem to mind their own business, not make eye contact, or just stare into whatever Facebook/text messaging doo-dad they have.

  2. After the child was returned, the RCMP requested that everyone take his picture off wherever you had it online. Therefore, the picture I had of the RCMP bulletin was deleted.
