Noted, thank you for the article--about time something happens--God bless all those who have been affected by this. Whoever would do this to a child--ohhhhh-I can't wait until you meet your maker--you will pay.

This is so dissapointing. I know many men and women who have benefitted greatly from the Scouts it's a damn shame that a few can totally wreck such great organizations such as this.

And these hypocrites have the gall to complain about LGBTs?!?! Like the Catholic Church, extirpating the pædophiles and rapists should be mandatory before they utter another peep about what adult consensual sex partners do in private!

Such files are normally kept confidential in order to protect the victims. The Boy Scouts arre a fine organization. I don't understand this vendetta against them.

This is disgraceful and how many young lives have been destroyed because of this. I hope they throw the book at ones that did this. My heart goes out to the children that were molested.

Oh, how special--the BSA has been covering up pediophelia since 1910, but refuses to allow adult gays?

And Craig, in syuch circumstances the victim's name should be confidential, not the CRIME of the adult.

Boy Scouts overall are a good group, let's hope/insist this information changes the way they handle predators from today forward. And also helps them the welcome gay scouts and leaders.

Saw a happy scouting commercial today, probably damage control.......

Noted, Thank you Cal.

Child abuse,pedophiles must pass maximum penalty in every way to get some order in society.
Its easy to manipulate with child or one who is not really informed. If crime exist,it must be punished
