An Orlando police sting netted 28 online predators that went to a home to engage in what they thought were sexual acts with underage minors. That is bad enough, but the worst part is that 3 employees of Walt Disney Co. were caught in the dragnet.
Disney is billed as the place to bring children, the so called magical kingdom, but it also looks like a place that some sexual deviants are also lured to. While it is impossible to vet and clear every potential deviant, the company’s reputation is its most valuable asset, and sexual predators do nothing to help it.
Three of the men worked for Walt Disney Co., one as a 21-year-old intern, another as a 55-year-old part-time instructor at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the third as a 44-year-old electronics technician, according to the sheriff’s office.
The other men included laborers, food service workers and salesmen. One man said he was an IBM consultant; another a vice president for a South Florida real estate company, authorities said.
“We take matters like this very seriously,” Disney said in a statement released Monday. “The cast members have been placed on unpaid leave.”
Disney would not comment further on whether the employees had routine contact with children. The company said all cast members must pass background checks when they are hired. via FOXNews.com
