LOS ANGELES — Boy Scouts of America internal documents reveal more than 125 cases in which men suspected of molestation allegedly continued to abuse Scouts, despite a blacklist meant to protect boys from sexual predators.Good thing they took care of the really important things, like letting valued non-molesting members loose because they're gay. Relax, the world is safe once again.
A Los Angeles Times review (http://lat.ms/OT9zx5) of more than 1,200 files from 1970 to 1991 found suspected abusers regularly remained in the organization after officials were first presented with sexual misconduct allegations.
The newspaper says predators moved from troop to troop because of clerical errors, computer glitches or the Scouts' failure to check the so-called "perversion files."
So, in light of the Penn State cover-up, do you think reactions will change for an agency that apparently failed to protect kids from abuse after more than adequate warning? My guess is yes, they will pay a steeper price than before. I'm totally cool with that.
