(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – It’s become pretty common to see Disney employees arrested in sex crime stings in Florida. Sadly, the Disney company has proven they just don’t have the best interests of children in mind.
The most recent sting operation conducted by Florida police earlier this month resulted in the arrests of 12 suspects between the ages of 20 and 67 and included a 30-year-old Disney employee.
Authorities announced the details of the sting on Friday, including information on Disney employee Zachary Hudson’s arrest. Hudson is charged with one count of using a two-way communication device to commit a felony and one count of transmission of material harmful to a minor, according to a news release from the Polk County Sheriff’s office.
Hudson, a resident of Reunion, Florida, first began communicating with an undercover detective pretending to be a 15-year-old girl on June 4, the news release informs.
Hudson expressed that he was interested in having a relationship with the girl, despite the fact that she was underage. He told the undercover detective that he was okay with having a pedophilic relationship as long as “my being older doesn’t bother you,” according to the Sheriff’s office.
Hudson also told the “girl” that “age is just a number.”
The subsequent communication between the two soon turned sexual in nature with Hudson describing what he would do to her sexually and telling her that he would be “honored” to take her virginity.
The Disney employee also sent nude pictures of himself to the undercover detective.
Hudson told the detective during their conversations he was a Disney World employee who worked as a bus driver on the massive Disney resort complex.
“What would an operation be — either a pornography investigation or predator operation or human trafficking operation — without a Disney employee? We always have a Disney employee,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd asserted to WKMG-TV.
How disturbing is that?
Hudson was arrested in Orlando after detectives obtained a warrant. He was then booked into Orange County Jail and served with the aforementioned charges.
His arrest came as part of “Operation Child Protector II,” a two-week joint anti-sex-predator sting operation launched on June 2, by detectives of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Auburndale Police Department and the Winter Haven Police Department.
The operation involved law enforcement officers posing as children under the age of 18 on social media platforms, mobile apps and dating websites. The goal of the sting was to catch pedophiles who would interact with minors in an attempt to groom them and arrange meet-ups for illegal sexual activity.
In the end, 12 suspects were arrested and a total of 49 felony charges were handed out. The combined criminal histories of the 12 arrested suspects span 22 felonies and 31 misdemeanor charges.
Four of the suspects were arrested after showing up a location in Polk County where they intended to meet up with their underage victims for illegal sexual relations. The rest were taken into custody after detectives obtained warrants for their arrests. Hudson was among the warrant arrests.
Police are still on the hunt for additional suspects for whom they have obtained arrest warrants in connection with this sting.
Just another reason to keep your children far away from Disney.
