Boy Scouts of America…appalling deceptions


(LFC Comments:  Thanks for Lobbyist Rusty for this article.  Oh, how far the once rock solid Boy Scouts have fallen.  This is another example of an organization deceiving the families that trusted them.  It is a huge BETRAYAL!)

Some excerpts from the article:
“Barraged by hundreds of sex-abuse lawsuits, the Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy protection Tuesday in hopes of working out a potentially mammoth victim compensation plan that will allow the hallowed, 110-year-old organization to carry on.”

“The bankruptcy petition listed the Boy Scouts’ assets as between $1 billion and $10 billion, and its liabilities at $500 million to $1 billion.”

“The Boy Scouts are just the latest major American institution to face a heavy price over sexual abuse. Roman Catholic dioceses across the country and schools such as Penn State and Michigan State have paid out hundreds of millions of dollars in recent years.”

“Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts have kept confidential files since the 1920s listing staff and volunteers implicated in sexual abuse, for the avowed purpose of keeping predators away from youth. According to a court deposition, the files as of January listed 7,819 suspected abusers and 12,254 victims.”

“Until last spring, the organization had insisted it never knowingly allowed a predator to work with youths. But in May, The Associated Press reported that attorneys for abuse victims had identified multiple cases in which known predators were allowed to return to leadership posts. The next day, Boy Scouts chief executive Mike Surbaugh wrote to a congressional committee, acknowledging the group’s previous claim was untrue. (emphasis added by LFC)”

its all been a lie

(LFC Opinion:  Although the payments to the victims are warranted, we fail to see any punishment of the perpetrators.  All of these organizations that tolerate this behavior should cease to exist!)
