    Exactly! I won't hesitate to call out Disney when the company is in the wrong, but a background check might not necessarily have caught a scuzzball like Bryan William Anast. It would have to be much more invasive than a normal background check by requiring workers to submit their hard drives to be scanned in case there is any child porn on there, or have their house searched to see if there is any physical child porn on the premises. Disney wouldn’t be able to get away with such invasions of privacy. As to the incident with the minor, if she would have come forward before, there would have been a record of it which would have been caught in a normal background check. Thankfully, though, Bryan William Anast has been arrested and will no doubt not be around children at Disneyland any longer.

    Bryan William Anast was a Disneyland employee and the arrest took place at Disneyland. That’s how Disneyland is relevant.

    In addition, the police suspect other victims, and as a Disneyland worker he had access to children.

    Is the use of the Disney name misleading? Of course it is. Is Disney "at fault" in this? No. Is it related to and relevant to Disney? Absolutely! It is very relevant when a suspected pedophile/predator is in a position to be around his/her prey of choice.

    Or just make sure that the other inmates know exactly what Bryan William Anast is in jail for.

    It says he was a machinist who fixed rides. He likely had no contact with children at DLR - thank goodness.

    While he may not have had direct contact, as a ride fixer person, he would know all the dark places on rides where he can hide and observe. Very creepy that some weird pedophile dude could be lurking in the shadows observing kids on rides.

    Further, any time a worker has to walk “on stage” they come into contact with children. Imagine this is the guy that finds a lost kid and offers to help them.

    Re: Another Disneyland Cast Member Arrested , Whats going on here?

    I don't even get why the police would come into to disneyland to make the arrest? Why not wait until he was at home? I'm sure it was all done backstage... But still!

    Why leave a predator like Bryan William Anast on the streets any longer than needed? If they knew where he was, make the arrest there rather than have to track him down later. This wasn't a charge like an unpaid parking ticket, this guy is an accused child molester working at a Mecca for children.

    Yeah I definitely see that point. Hopefully it was handled quickly and silently for the guests as I'm sure it was

    Let's keep in mind that this guy has only been accused of these things and should get the benefit of assumed innocence unless guilt is proven in a court of law.

    While that is true, the evidence is overwhelmingly against him. One can easily argue that it's the accusers word against his for the molestation charge, but he was caught red-handed with the child porn in his house. That alone would tell me that I wouldn't want someone like Bryan William Anast working at Disneyland.

    Re: Another Disneyland Cast Member Arrested , Whats going on here?

    Let's not go into panic mode here.

    Pedofiles are most dangerous when they have one on one, private access to children. How often does that happen with a DL CM and a child guest? In this case it is a good thing that DL is always packed with people and there are almost always others around. Additionally, parents should never leave the company of small children when out in public in any situation unless they are being cared for by trusted others.

    Re: Another Disneyland Cast Member Arrested , Whats going on here?

    IIRC, in California anyone working with children must undergo a thorough background check, including a DOJ fingerprint check. I know you do even to go on a school field trip as a chaperone. I'm sure any/all DL workers that may be in the Parks at the same time the public is would undergo this check. It wouldn't have helped in this case because this individual had no prior record, as far as I can see. "Innocent until proven guilty" is a cornerstone to our judicial system, as others have pointed out. Even if it seems that there may be evidence to the contrary at the time of arrest. Lives have been ruined before in a rush to judgement in more than one case.

    As far as the headline goes, the media is always going to go for the 'headline grabbiest' angle and 'Disney + Child molestation' in any form would be as 'grabby' as you can get.
