    Scared of a rolled up piece of paper?

    Oh boy.

    Wait til someone come across a white rabbit with 'nasty, big pointy teeth' and a 'vicious streak a mile wide' whatever will they do then?

    Post-9/11, it's all terror all the time.

    ``The safety of our guests and cast members is our top priority,'' resort spokeswoman Brown said in a statement. ``In an abundance of caution and to allow the security teams to learn more, we are keeping guests away from the area at this time.''

    Hahahahahahahahaha! They really are mimicking the TSA.

    Sorry, I'm not a big Disneyland fan.

    Since none of the security guards at Disney are issued the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, run screaming like the little girls they are.

    The links don't quite deliver ...

    In the first case, Michael Chartrand was acquitted in 2004. It's noteworthy that the alleged perpetrator was arrested & charged, but he was also judged not guilty.

    In the second case, nobody was "charged" as you claim. It was a civil suit filed in 2010 by a golddigger 2-3 years after the alleged abuse. One of its key underpinnings, covered in paragraphs 12-14 of the civil complaint, was the Michael Chartrand case from 2004. The civil complaint neglected to mention that he was not found guilty. The case was dismissed with prejudice, but reportedly they did pay her something, I'm guessing less than what it would have cost to defend against the suit. The woman's claims were bordering on the absurd:

    If groping a breast does all that, I shudder to think of the mental state of the girls in the junior high schools I attended, and I truly apologize for all the mental anguish and mayhem to which I must have contributed.

    According to the Huffington Post, the real danger is Minnie Mouse:

    At least at Disney, if the issue is raised there, the alleged molestors are investigated, charged & prosecuted, unfortunately can't say the same for TSA.

    I have no idea about the cases linked in question. As far as groping or PTSD goes, I do know.
    As a Floridian, my own prurient Disney point of reference was indelibly marked by the masterwork of Ralph Steadman:[​IMG]

    Well the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch does require some complicated directions to use....

    Indeed, the a brush to the breast caused all that, what would her reaction be when passing through the mammogram- enhanced patdown TSA gives? I say someone sick her on the TSA.

    Once you have pulled the pin from Mr. Grenade, he is no longer your friend...
