Default Which is safer Disney or a cruise?

Incidents at Disney parks
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incidents_at_Disney_parks
Incidents on cruise ships
http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/Story?id=3627116&page=2
Please keep in mind there are more cruise ships that Disneyland parks.
In this case:
"On March 7, 1981, 18-year-old Mel C. Yorba of Riverside, California was fatally stabbed with a knife during a fight in Tomorrowland." The disneyland nurses didn't want to call 911 because they were concern the red lights would scare the other guest so they drove the victim to the hospital in rush hour LA traffic. When is the legislature go to deal with this Disneyland issue?

I can tell you that a lot of the alarmism that happens with the cruise industry also happens with Disney.

Some very intelligent neighbors of ours had heard that Disney World had a history of kidnappers who would come into the park, find kids in restrooms, change their clothes and have them out of the parks in five minutes - to disappear forever.

I looked it up in Google and found out it was an urban myth.

There is "danger" everywhere, but when it is not the fault of the park or cruise line it is ridiculous to blame them. The Golden Gate bridge is responsible for more suicides than almost any other structure, so when will Congress investigate that?

They are they are talking about putting a suicide barrier around the Golden Gate bridge so people can't jump off it.
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...NG9UFI71E1.DTL

"The bridge district estimated that a suicide barrier would cost between $15 million and $25 million. The district has raised approximately $1.7 million of the $2 million needed for a study that would explore whether such a barrier would work. "
This article was written in 2005, they have done the study (so there goes that 2 millon dollars.)

California is the land of crazies. But hey at least we got the treesitters down and it took less then 2 years.
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...BAMD12QPGR.DTL Next time Cal Berkeley needs to come to me. I could have had the treesitters down in a couple of days. I would have just played the Celine Dion Song "my heart will go on" until they raced out of the trees screaming.

Hey it worked for Manuel Noriega.
" Manuel Noriega, finally turned up in the Apostolic Nunciature, the Holy See's embassy in Panama, where he had taken refuge. The troops guarding it instead used psychological warfare, attempting to force the defeated ruler out by using the continuous noise from a low flying helicopter and playing hard rock music and The Howard Stern Show outside the residence"
