I'd say he's a piece of poo, but that's an insult to pieces of poo. This guy deserves to be punished without mercy.
Simple assault will do fine with making the pervert have some really bad days ahead. Well, that and being in national news for being a jerk and an idiot.Edit: You're right. Florida's sexual assault laws are horrendous - they actually only cover penetration.
The law broken here would be simple assault.
At least for annual passholders and water park tickets the system Disney uses cross references the national sex offender registry and flags potential matches. I've seen many an awkward encounter where security escorted said sex offender into a backstage area for questioning while the rest of the family (usually wife AND kids) waits outside with no explanation as to what's going on. It was never a false positive. The guest was escorted out and trespassed. That would be a REALLY awkward car ride home.Which then prompts the second question: Should Disney do a background check on their guests before allowing them to visit the parks?
- It would be expensive to background check everyone, but once you are clear you are clear.
Wow. That’s a crazy level of judgment right there. I didn’t realize that if I stood in line to meet Mary Poppins I would be labeled as such by someone who knows absolutely nothing about me.When we pass the lines for photos and I see people without kids, my first thoughts are weirdo, creep, and strange. I bet the CMs find most of the adults to be weird and creepy too.
The crime of Battery is a First Degree Misdemeanor and if convicted of Battery, a judge can impose any combination of the following penalties:The article says he is facing "battery charges." I think battery and assault in Florida are different charges.
In this M&G spot, when you get your picture with Ariel she's basically stuck to a chair with only the PhotoPass photographer and maybe a handler to help her. Fairytale Hall has characters/photographers/helpers share a room. I think the Frozen one at Epcot is like this too? At character meals there's people everywhere and it's a much more public space.What's really disturbing about this is that she couldn't get up to move away from him because she was probably in the mermaid costume. I'm guessing that's why he felt as though he could "get away" with this. Nasty.
Agreed. Makes you wonder what kind of thoughts are going through some peoples heads. The person that spends all day imagining how others can be creeps or weirdos because they are getting a photo with a character in the theme park scares me more than the people getting photos. They sure spend a lot of time thinking about that stuff...it is almost creepy and weird.Wow. That’s a crazy level of judgment right there. I didn’t realize that if I stood in line to meet Mary Poppins I would be labeled as such by someone who knows absolutely nothing about me.
Nope, but there are 2 different sets of rules here. Character can touch you all over apparently!Did you give Mickey consent to touch your shoulder?
You're going by today's dollars though. Technology costs go down over time, while constantly improving, so when the time is right, it will come fast.Pretty sure human face characters cost a lot less than animatronics.
