    Why won’t the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) give the OK for a Truckers Network to help find missing children?


    In a nutshell KlaasKids along with Clarity Media want to put in TV service with 70 channels of programming directed at the long haul trucker in hundreds of Flying J Truck Stops. This programming would include information on Amber Alerts, and missing people. Since it involves all aspects of TV including, satellite, local programming, national programming, the FCC has to give the OK.


    THE FCC HAS NOT GIVEN PERMISSION FOR THIS PROJECT TO GO FORWARD. DEATH ROW INMATES AND CONVICTED TERRORISTS HAVE EASY ACCESS TO TV, BUT NOT LONG HAUL TRUCK DRIVERS!!! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE THAT MUST BE CORRECTED. TRUCKER TV WILL SAVE THE LIVES OF COUNTLESS CHILDREN.


    Until the FCC approves this project nothing can move forward.
    2 million truckers would see the Amber Alerts, 2 million truckers would see the stories about missing teenagers who end up prostituting themselves at TRUCK STOPS.


    Do you see the potential here for many happy endings? Truckers are our eyes and ears on the highways. You let these truckers know there is an Amber Alert for a small child you know they will be watching and looking for them.
    It was a long haul trucker who caught the D.C. Sniper but ONLY because he was watching TV. Imagine how much sooner the D.C. sniper would have been caught if this information was immediately available on TV networks at all Flying J Truck Stops.


    This is an outrage.

    You have to help us. It takes 3 minutes. Go to KlaasKids.org and read about this situation. Then click on the button at the bottom and email the FCC and Marc Klaas. Express your outrage. PLEASE DO IT POLITELY BUT FIRMLY. No one is going to read an obnoxious email filled with foul language.

    Chesterp, please try again. Also, I'll send this info to Marc's tech guy. Thank you for putting it in your post.

Another suggestion would be the National Education Association (3.2 million members). Anyone have any ideas for contacts there? Also AARP (American Association of Retired Persons).

    Craigslist certainly comes to mind, but I'm going to put more thought into that (don't want bunch of freaks emailing Marc with nonsense). Am trying to contact someone there (arghhhh) to see if a post of this nature would or would not be allowed on Craiglist.
    Thank You so much. This is what we need to do. Find places to send the info to so others will email.
    THANK YOU.

    Tricia, I don't know if this is possible for your webmaster to do easily, but at the top of this page is your "CALL TO ACTION" notice. If that could be placed in RED at the top of each forum/thread, maybe it could help. Also, I'm not very tech-savvy, but there might even be a way of intercepting the member log-in feature with a message.

    Right now, we're a pretty small crew in this thread, but maybe we could each take X number of threads to post the info with specific wording and a link to Marc's page. Let me know if and how I/we can help.

    PS: I emailed Jessie Foster's mom, Glendene and have asked her to send the info out to her multitiude of contacts. Also have posted the info and link on the AMW message forum (sorry if it's a competitor, but can't hurt).

    Oh God !! I just realized how many threads we have here at WS ... would take an army I guess. Now you know why I'm sillybilly.
    I am in the process of posting an announcement on all the threads. It is in the announcement at the top of every forum but I don't think people click on it all the time.

    It's in my signature and on the front page. It's just hard to get people to do things. That is the nature of things. I know everyone is overly busy and stressed. I get it. I am praying we can get enough letters to the FCC to get this done that's why we are here. Do make a difference. Now we have a chance.

    Email sent... and sent emails to all in my family and friends asking for their help. Two have already replied back that they sent emails and have sent a request to all of their family and friends to get in on this too.

    I think many people (from WS and elsewhere) will be responding over the weekend and through out the week. People are currently caught up in their personal lives with a holiday coming up and several very active cases (with, I'm sure, every intention to send their email). Tricia, please ask Marc to be patient. We can and will get the word out and get those emails sent. We can make a difference and get this proposal passed.

    I know we can. I have talked to Marc today and he is fine. He loves Websleuths. It's just so surprising to see so few emails with so many people here. We have be at this since Monday.

    If anyone understands the stress of life it is me. Please understand I am just trying to light a fire and get people's attention. I would not do this if the project wasn't literally a matter of life and death for our kids.

    No one is a "bad" person if they don't email the FCC. You're busy, overloaded, and too much to deal with. Me too. I'm just trying to get your attention.

    I have a feeling that Marc's going to quickly change his assessment.

    Okay - well I am disappointed. I have emailed Klaaskids asking for additional info and have heard nothing back! What are they doing?

    Maybe all you moms and dads can send it out to your local Parent & Teachers' Associations (especially in locales where there are missing victims). Could try local school boards, but generally this type of thing would require superintendent's approval which could take weeks and may or may not happen. By going directly to the PTAs, this bypasses a large part of the bureaucratic approval process

    Tricia, is there a deadline? I mean, I know this needed to be done oh about three years ago, but a deadline might help get people motivated, as in do this NOW.

    OK. I sent mine. My delay was in figuring out what to write. Sometimes a sample letter gets us people going in the right direction. ;-)

    Have been flooding the most current threads on the board ... even I'm getting sick of seeing my old goat avatar . May have to change that or go into the WS witness protection program here

    Last I looked Tricia, the number of views of your message had increased to 609, so will probably keep rising. Hopefully the exponential factor will kick in soon and Marc will start to see better results.
