    This and possibly the fact that taking him into custody at his home would have been more dangerous, as he would more likely have had access to any weapons that he might have owned, and been prepared to use them.

    Usually, I agree with the media going for the most eye catching headline, even if it has only a small thread that ties it to the actual story. In this case, however, I think that the headline was justified. It is the fact that Bryan William Anast was a Disney employee that was arrested at work at Disneyland that makes this newsworthy. While people get arrested for child molestation and adolescent pornography every day, an employee of Disneyland getting arrested at Disneyland is not an everyday occurrence.

    True, counting all crimes it's only a once-a-month sort of thing right now.

    I'm not aware that Christian Barnes was arrested while at work at Disneyland. Everything that I read simply said he was arrested that night, not at Disneyland like Bryan William Anast.

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

    i feel like this article is unfair to Disneyland. There was no reason for the headline or to site Disneyland for any reason other than to get people to read the article, he could have just as easily been working at Olive Garden. The background check issue; it probably wouldn't have found anything unless he was charged with sexual assault.

    Yes, I want this guy to get locked up, put on a registry and hopefully never get the chance to use the internet again, however in his job position there is a decent chance he didn't even work near children if he was a mechanic for the rides. A lot of them only work after the park has closed.

    Well, I thought that committing the actual crime at Disneyland while onstage with guests present would be at least as interesting as an arrest. But in any case it was merely a tongue-in-cheek jab at Disneyland, as recent events hardly constitute a pattern of worthy of note.

    And children can be present at the Olive Garden and just about everywhere else, as well. So you're right, in a way Disneyland's involvement, even with no fault on its part involved, makes the story sensational to the public, and that's why the newspaper chose to report it.

    Background checks obviously only tell you whether somebody has previously been caught and convicted of crimes, not whether they have committed any they've gotten away with (for now) or will commit crimes in the future. A criminal record is in practice a pretty good indicator that a person is more likely to commit crimes, as sadly the vast majority of offenders are repeat offenders, but it won't tell you everything, as there can be a first time for anything.

    That's a valid point, too, that mitigates at least the perceived issue of the safety of children, making the location, namely Disneyland, the main reason the story was published. That said, in the grand scheme of things, this is hardly the most egregious case of media sensationalism I can imagine. They're going to report on some such cases, and one involving Disneyland would garner the most interest.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned that the suspects bail is the same as the dry ice guy, which brings up the question: was the dry ice incident completely over-blown, or is the bail for this suspect too low?

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

    Background checks are a tricky thing these days. It's not that they are difficult to do, it's actually just the opposite. Teachers, or anyone working for the state school system, are required to submit to a FBI level background check as well as submit their fingerprints to a database. The fingerprinting can be done at any police station, and the background check is actually now a service called LiveScan. It's pretty simple and results come back in a few days usually, or longer depending on what comes up. I'm going somewhere with this lol.

    Some agencies, while they may be privately owned, are regulated by the state to ensure that workers do not have a history of criminal activity because of the groups that they are working with. For example, retirement homes are legally mandated to do a LiveScan background check and are not allowed to hire anyone who has an arrest on their record. Some exceptions are allowed, but they are very rare. DISNEY is not one of those private agencies. They hire a large number of employees who interact with children, but never are those employees allowed to be alone with a child in any capacity (except maybe a few instances). The only ones I can imagine are maybe the CM's who work in the "lost child" department.

    While Disney does do a background check, I doubt that they use the LiveScan service. It's $70 (on average) for just the FBI service, with extra options available. Considering the sheer number of CM's, that is just way too much money. I know it's Disney, and they can "afford to do anything," but as the Accounteneer has taught me, even the biggest business' still have budgets. My final point would be a quote from Johnny Depp while in his role as Captain Jack Sparrow:

    "One good deed does not rid a man from a lifetime of wickedness, but it is enough to condemn him."

    If anyone would like to provide more information on the Disney background check, please feel free to counter my points. I would really like to know how deeply the company looks at their employee's histories!
    "Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding. Perhaps you sense a disquieting metamorphosis occurring? Is this room actually stretching, or is it your imagination?"

    - I think we all know where this is from

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

    Disneyland employs..... how many people?
    I suspect their percentage might be better than the professional religious community


    sorry, not Christian bashing, but... best example of a current subgroup I could think of without risking accusations having nothing to do with my general opinion of the public... at large.

    When this happens, it affects everyone,notibily the victims. Also, the CMs who are not involved are affected. Their reputations are touched and sullied. So much damage created by one person.

    please discuss!
    You're working on the faulty assumption that more arrests = more problem employees. It may be, perhaps, that better Disney screening and lower tolerance for certain actions is leading to more arrests, making the park actually quite safer.

    Now, I have no facts to point me in either direction, but it doesn't seem like you do either. As such, it'd be wise to throw out the insinuation that Disney is somehow more unsafe now. If you're going to say something like that, you should back it up with facts, even if it's anecdotal.
    This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.

    Yes, but don't all CMs get a pass so they can come into the park as a guest whenever they want? That could be very problematic with someone like this.

    I hear they sell those kind of passes to the general public too. Perhaps they should do background checks on all annual passholders?

    You're missing the point. The poster had said he wasn't going to be around kids in his job functions at DLR; I was pointing out that might not have been the case - and he would have had far more access and ability to go backstage, etc. than an AP.
