    Boy Scouts helped alleged molesters cover tracks, files show. A paper trail of abuse.

    Since at least 1919, the Boy Scouts of America has maintained “ineligible volunteer” files intended to keep sexual abusers, among others, out of its ranks. The records have been closely held by the Scouts, which contends that confid*entiality is essential to protect victims, witnesses and anyone falsely accused.
    The Times reviewed about 1,600 of the files dating from 1970 to 1991. In hundreds of cases, sexual abuse was not reported to law enforcement, and Scout officials at times actively hid it from parents and the public. In at least 50 cases, the Boy Scouts expelled men for alleged sexual abuse, only to discover later that they had reentered the Scouts and were again accused of molesting.

    Here are files from some of those cases. The Times has redacted victims’ names and other identifying information. Some files in*clude explicit accounts of sexual abuse.

    No the Boy Scouts called them ineligible volunteers and threw the gays out of the Scouts. We don't know exactly why. It may not have been a cover up of raping little boys, but maybe some touching, or a leer here and there. Or, maybe it was a gay scoutmaster approaching another adult scoutmaster. They were declared ineligible and dismissed. Which is what gays have been saying all along! They are trying to concoct some scenario wherein the Boy Scouts have had gay child molesters in the Scouts all along so throwing them out is brand new. As these records show, they've been thrown out for decades.

    Yes their own records show how many years they have been throwing gays out of the Scouts. It might be impossible to keep them from joining, but as soon as they are identified they are expelled as ineligible.

    Suppose they didn't break any laws? Whatever conduct it was didn't meet the criteria of a crime. These are records of ineligible volunteers not those dismissed for criminal activity. Ineligible doesn't automatically mean criminal.

    Any organization that has kids in it will attract child molesters.

    They gravitate there because there are kids there, just like people rob banks because that’s where the money is.

    Also any organization when faced with some external threat, like an investigation into child molesters by people working with kids will first and foremost work to protect the organization and not the kids. That is just human nature.


    When I was involved with Scouting, we rejected several potential leaders because we simply did not feel comfortable with them. All leaders accepted were monitored closely for their first couple of years and all Scouting events were made to be group activities. This was as much for the leader’s protection as it was for the kid’s protection.

    We had hard and fast rules that for camping bed checks, two leaders would work together and we mixed up the pairings as well.
