Well, that rules out sabotage or tampering.........

Now, we just have to wait for DOSH's report. :|

Here comes an avalanche of more speculation, guesses, dumb ideas, MP’ers with 'Special Insider CM knowledge', but by the way-I can't share it with you..... Oh boy...

Um yeah, some of us do have insider CM knowledge, but instead of telling you what it is without being able to identify a source, we will simply leave you in the dark and hope (against hope) that DOSH comes up with the answer that we with the inside scoop have known all along.

LOL, "inside scoop," what a joke.

CMs are just as much in the dark as everybody else, even lower management has no idea what's going on half the time. As a CM, I've heard hundreds of speculations and rumors about all sorts of stuff, with the end result being completely opposite of what's been circulated through the rank-and-file.

Where do you think Al Lutz gets all of his misguided information?

By all means, please "Leave me in the dark” I honestly don't care about the source of the accident. I do care that people were hurt, someone was killed. This seems like a really lame time to pull the third grade, "I know a secret, I know a secret." Great, I am ecstatic for you. Glad to see that is entertainment value for some. I am sure that we all want the same thing, and that is for the attraction, and the rest of DLR to be safe for all to enjoy. I just think it is funny to play that game. IMHO if you know something, share with the class, if you don't-then no problem, but please don't run around advertising that you have "inside scoop." (unless you are referring to ice cream, then I am your best friend)

Either way, have a great day.

Personally, I just think it is just part of some vast right-wind conspiracy.

You brought up the subject here:

What, you think that comment was just gonna sit there all lonesome?

Actually, I'd like to see that... AND a corporate reform enema flushing out the ranks of WDC management.

Yeah right- and that is why the three top employees he hired are a black, a woman and a jew....


Considering it is democrats who have regularly shunned civil right laws, stepped on the backs of minorities to gain power and reject any minority who doesn't adhere to their views (check the female and hispanic judges they won't confirm) I don't think it is hard to see who is racist-

BTW- nice way to paint those of us who are conservative with a broad brush- so I can do the same right?


But back to the subject....I am glad there was nothing criminal about this. I understand accidents, but I want to believe that I am safe from criminal intent at Disneyland as much as possible.

I'd be more shocked if he'd actually said anything racist :)

Anthony: I'm glad you think that the truth is so entertaining. Those of us who know the truth don't find it so pleasant. Lucky you. To be honest, we HOPE that what we know isn't true.

Hello,

The topic of this thread is that the Anaheim Police Department released the Big Thunder Mountain Investigation report. The topic is not politics (take it to the lounge.) The topic is not each other (read the our FAQ and community policies.)

Thank you,

Adrienne

That said, this is a thread drift warning:

Folks, this thread is in the Disneyland forum. Please keep it on-topic or else we'll have to move it to the Lounge.

Thankye.

if you have info about the accident then wouldn't the right thing to do be to tell DOSH your information? just a thought.

I am actually relieved about the information released on the APD's report today. It is pretty straightforward, clean and clear. Doesn't leave much to discuss, really.
