We spent 6 pages on a guy getting hauled out of the dessert party. Are we going to bypass the viral video of last Saturday's fight in CA?
Really, sadly, this wouldn't be news if it had happened just about anywhere else.Huh, didn't come up when I searched. Weird.
Anyhoo...it put me back in mind of what people were saying about incidents in parks not making it to traditional news or local police blotters. And also that it did seem like a light crowd for a Saturday.
Yea, this was one of the more surprising (and disturbing) aspects of the video as well. It seems in today's world, adults are prone to misbehave just about anywhere, with little regard for their or other kids, so seeing a fight at Disney is the next (il)logical step. After all, people have been fighting at their kids little league games for years now.
The "Disney security is everywhere" stuff is a myth that Disney happily lets perpetuate. They want people to feel safe and if everyone thinks people are in the woodwork who will jump out at the first sign of trouble they will act better. The reality is it is difficult to manage 65,000+ people in a theme park and they can only do so much. They can be in far off locations when stuff happens and not all staff in an area have a walkie to call for immediate help. People always say it happens so quietly that you don't notice. It doesn't. I have seen enough stuff happen at the parks and nobody does anything or magically appear to calm the situation. Everyone thinks when stuff happens and Disney is able to "keep it quiet" like the company can cover up anything, real conspiracy theory stuff.
