Boy Scouts 'Perversion' Files Show Locals Helped Cover Up Child Sex Abuse By Scoutmasters
At the time, those authorities justified their actions as necessary to protect the good name and good works of Scouting. But as detailed in 14,500 pages of secret "perversion files" released Thursday by order of the Oregon Supreme Court, their maneuvers protected suspected sexual predators while victims suffered in silence.
The files document sex abuse allegations across the country, from a small town in the Adirondacks to downtown Los Angeles.
Jeebus Christ this is as bad as the Catholic Church. What is wrong with these people. What makes matters even more fucked up is that the organization is vocally homophobic. I just wonder how much of this still occurs.
So, any of you ever boy scouts?(or girl scouts) What was your experience? Did you feel it shaped you into a better person? Did I miss out?
I do wish I could tie better knots.
