Did anybody else see EAS on there cable box display. My bet would be emergency alert system. Apparently somebody was kidnapped in Elizabeth and they put out an amber alert. If you turn on your tv it comes on every so often not matter what channel I think and you can't change it.
At the nj state police, site, njsp.org you can see the flashing "New Jersey's amber alert ACTIVATED" text flashing. I tried clicking on it but it doesn't work. Scary shit.
