Was your Scout Leader a Perv?
LA Times has posted information they've researched from the BSA about incidents with scout leaders. There's over 5000 cases, and they have an interactive map where you can check your hometown for reported cases.

Yikes said Canteen Boy.....

He wasn't a perv....but he was most certainly gay.

I don't know if he was a perv. But, it seems strange now that only a special few scouts got checked for worms followed by an enema.

Hmm..I was a Scout Leader.

Jack Roberts in Liberty MO was certainly active...

Nah, he was a regular guy and he sure did get annoyed with the younger kids that acted a fool.

Edit: In that article, it does list an incident during the time I was there (1998), but there are no details - instead of a name it just has a number and there is no file attached. I don't recall ANYTHING like that ever happening and I can't see any of the leaders ever doing that.

Edit #2: Further investigation shows that it happened in 1987 instead, and this is all that happened:

He was apparently charged in June ’87 with
molesting a youth. Handwritten statement from the
victim shows that he put his arm around the youth
and then touched him. No conviction resulted.

Edit #3: I see that the article linked in the OP says that the date listed is when the record was created with the BSA, not when the incident occurred.

Nope, my scout experience was small town americana and nothing but wholesome... hot dogs, baseball, apple pie and chevrolet.

Same here, and I helped to continue that with my sons.

My dad was my scout leader. He had 50 scouts get their Eagle while he led our troop, including his three sons and two nephews. He was a stellar person and was fundamental in shaping the character of many "important" leaders in my hometown and state.

He did it old school, military style and would be sued or booted from scouting in today's climate due to the type of troop he ran, but I'm grateful for everything I learned in it.

As for pervs in scouting, I knew (and was obliviously hit on by) one of the most notorious and dangerous pervs in scouting history: Jack Walls.

Reminds me of the old joke.

Guy asks new neighbor to come over friday night for a party with lots of drinkin, ****in, and fightin.

Who's gonna be there asks the neighbor.

Just the two of us.

I take my kids "scouting" all the time in the woods and teach them about camping, survival skills, bushcrafts, etc. I'm not lettin some homo stay the weekend with my boy.

Warrior5 01-15-2013 11:46 AM

No, none of them.

reading the poster responses is funny. First one says we have a "penis problem" in the world.

Also, I always wondered why they called them "packs". Now I know.
