Dozens of Disney World workers arrested in child sex stings

Posted by on Jul 15, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Almost three dozen Disney theme park workers have been arrested for alleged kiddie-sex crimes since 2006, according to a broadcast report.

The 35 busts have been for possession of child porn or trying to meet a minor for sex, CNN found after combing through law enforcement and court records.

So far, 32 of those busted have been convicted and the other cases are pending. Two cases of child porn allegedly happened on Disney property.

Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said these scary arrests represent only a tiny fraction of the company’s workforce.

“Providing a safe environment for children and families is a responsibility we take very seriously. We have extensive measures in place, including pre-employment and ongoing criminal background checks and computer monitoring and firewalls,” she said.

“The numbers reported by CNN represent one one-hundredth of one percent of the 300,000 people we have employed during this time period. We continue to work closely with law enforcement and organizations like the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as we constantly strengthen our efforts.”

    35 out of 300,00 in eight years works out to about a tenfold reduction from the working public at large, or rephrased, there are ten times or more sexual criminals working outside Disney than inside per capita.

    Now that CNN has revealed this tragic non-disaster in Disney, can they spare a reporter to go to Disneyland DC to check out the ongoing disaster that has been going on for the last six years in the Hall of Presidents there?
