Boy Scouts Forced to Help Police Convict Accused Sexual Abusers


When Boy Scouts leaders get a free second from teaching our country’s male youth how to tie knots/not be gay, they love to argue that they’ve done all they can to prevent sexual abuse.

Now, however, the organization has announced its intention to start notifying police departments across the country about suspected abusers — not out of sheer goodness and an urge to help others “be prepared,” but because the Scouts have been court-ordered to release an internal list of pedophiles that they’ve used to keep known sex offenders away for decades. According to the AP, “That has prompted Scouts spokesman Deron Smith to say the organization will go back into the files and report any offenders who may have fallen through the cracks.”

Ah, the “cracks” that appear when you try to cover stuff up.
