Fantastic story. Props to Disney. Keep predators out.
Of the records obtained by Eyewitness News, most of the warnings were issued to people convicted of crimes involving children.
Some, like Jason Dennis Adams and Jesse Alan Kennedy, are classified by the state as predators.
Adams was removed from Epcot on Dec. 24. Kennedy was removed from Disney’s Hollywood Studios on March 7.
"Who are the main patrons? Families with children," said one Disney guest Heath interviewed about the sex offenders being trespassed. "As a parent, I wouldn't want a sex offender near my kids. No way.”
I wonder if there has have been a child abduction from Disney property.
I think this is a great thing they are doing. Sex offenders must be stopped before they hurt another child. Yes others with some sort of criminal record may be allowed in but IMHO sex offenders running around with children every where is not a good thing. It is why they can not live near a school. I do agree that some of the sex offenders should not be labeled as such. The 18 yr old who got the labeled because some Dad was ****ed his daughter was with a guy is not a sex offender.Yet wife-beaters, alcoholics, drunk-drivers, murderers, etc.. are allowed to enter without being checked. I'm not defending sex offenders, but I do know that some people are labeled sex offenders with a broad brush, ie... someone who was urinating in public or an 18 year old was caught with a 17 year old. Some laws need to change. I do however think it's interesting that Disney is doing this, I guess that's why they want your IDs when you get tickets aside from checking for residency.
They do have security dressed like tourists, but they aren't everywhere.As for overall safety I have a nephew who was a uniformed security officer at WDW. He never said exactly what they do for safety but I got the hint that they are watching you and everyone else in the parks. They are also everywhere in the parks and not uniformed.
We all need to watch and protect the children in our charge and stop worrying about trying to ban people with the "sexual offender" label.
PLENTY of sickos out there who have not been labeled as sexual offenders.
Some guys who were labeled as "sexual offenders" are good, honest, decent people from whom nobody has anything to fear.
We need to think about things before having wild, emotional reactions.
