Orlando Sting Arrests 28 Online Predators, Including 3 Disney Employees


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

      Repulsive beyond measure. How do parents keep their sanity these days?

      Good show for the sting! May there be ever more of them. Thanks to those who laid and executed the plans. That Magical Kingdom sounds like Neverland. Naive parents need to wake up.

      Maybe if our royality (congress) spends time with the real issues of this country (protecting our children) rather writing taxpayers checks to host lavish political conventions, we wouldn’t have these problems.

      Laughable, they want to protect the future of our children with the defict, but what are they protecting?

      Why call out Disney? If you plan a sting close to Disney World, you will catch Disney World employees (They are by far the largest employer). If you ran the sting in a small college town you would catch educators….its all in the odds.

      Or if a sting were conducted near a seminary or similar institution.

      Frickin’ Pervs ! Oh, so this is more GREAT news. Looks like that family trip we were planning to Disney may also have to be re-considered. Aruba is on our boycott list and now Disneyworld, too? >>


      and ALL SEX OFFENDERS SHOULD BE IMPRISONED AND THEN SENTENCED TO A SLOW, PAINFUL DEATH FOR EVER HARMING OR TAKING AWAY THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT CHILD. These bastards need to fry for committing such henious crimes. As far as Disney goes, it is literally impossible even with a background check to catch them all. Some of these Whack Jobs always manage to slip through the cracks, but glad they have been detained. That is all they are going to do is be placed on unpaid leave? I believe the phrase I am searching for is something like………………WTF? How about you have no job, no pay, no life and we will take legal action if you are ever to trespass on Disney property again?

      I wouldn’t immediately boycott Disneyland. How can an employer know that they are employing a pervert? I know Disney does fairly extensive background checks, but if the perv has never been charged with a crime, there is no way for an employer to know and they should not be held accountable or boycotted for the crimes of their employees. Now the Catholic priest are another matter entirely. The church has covered their pervered arses for years and they should pay and pay and pay, through the nose and through their sickeningly hefty bank accounts.

      Congratulations Orlando police, you should be proud!

      I hope they’re never allowed back on the streets!

      Disney is a Cesspool for sick people. This is not the only time employees of Disney have been arrested and convicted of sex crimes. And Disney is such a happy happy place.

      Most predators are where the children are.

      Upon his capture in 1934, the legendary bank robber Willie Sutton was asked by FBI agents, “Why do you rob banks, Willie?” Sutton, replied, “Because that’s where the money is.”

      Same situation, parents be aware. Think Boys Scouts, little league coaches, tutors. Know who your child is with and do not entrust them to just anyone.

      These shortterm, high profile entrapment does not bring safety anymore then thinking we are safe from an attack of Terror because we’re fighting the fight in Iran. Please keep in mind the Orlando Police have yet to solve the missing case of Jennifer Kesse. If the US crime fighting units is so superior to Aruba, where is the beef?

      #7 I vote to boycott Disney. At nearly 80 dollar, they are shafting the avg. American Family. Only in America
