CNN reports on sex predators hired at theme parks

By Joe Ruble

CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 is airing a story tonight on sexual predators working in our theme parks.

The news outlet investigated the matter for six months and learned that some sexual offenders found a way to beat the system and get themselves hired at parks where families get away to enjoy themselves.

"Look them in the eye and say, You're a liar. What you really are is a pervert, a sexual pervert and a child predator," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told CNN.

While no offenses involved any children at the parks, investigative reporters at CNN said the fact that sex offenders are working there is reason enough to worry.

The network cited the arrest of an employee downloading porn while on the job.

The theme parks told investigators that they do all they can to keep from hiring people with questionable pasts, especially those involving crimes against children.
