(AP) View/Post Comments This is not the family friendly face that Orlando theme parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orland and SeaWorld Orlando want to show to the world. Instead, the theme parks are being rocked today by a CNN investigation that reveals some 42 staffers across the three parks have been arrested in sex stings or for child porn charges since 2006. According to the report , the arrest breakdown is as follows: 35 staffers from Walt Disney World, along with five from Universal Studios Orlando and two more from SeaWorld Orlando. Of that total, http://disneydarkside.weebly.com 32 have been found guilty, eight have been found not guilty and two have not entered a plea, CNN reported. The report revealed a diversity of suspects — some married with children, a pastor, others working with children for years, USAToday wrote. However, most of those featured in the CNN report appeared to reach their potential targets through the Internet and child pornography websites, the newspaper said. Many of the suspects were nabbed as they traveled to meet someone who they thought was an underage child, but in actuality was a detective working with law enforcement, USAToday noted. However, Disney defended its employee pre-screening process to CNN: “We have extensive measures in place, including pre-employment and ongoing criminal background checks and computer monitoring and firewalls,” Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said in a statement “The numbers reported by CNN represent one one-hundredth of one percent of the 300,000 people we have employed during this time period.” Does this report shake your confidence in the family friendly nature of theme parks? Why or why not?
