#1 Had Mafeking not been relieved:

Wiki: Three of Baden-Powell's many biographers comment on his sexuality; the first two (in 1979 and 1986) focused on his relationship with his close friend Kenneth McLaren.[68]:217–218[69]:48 Tim Jeal's later biography discusses the relationship and finds no evidence that this friendship was of an erotic nature.[11]:82 Jeal then examines Baden-Powell's views on women, his appreciation of the male form, his military relationships, and his marriage, concluding that, in his personal opinion, Baden-Powell was a repressed homosexual.[11]:103 Jeal's conclusion is disputed.[70]:6

#2 Scouts have files on child abusers within their ranks dating back to the 1940s.

If true then yes this is a "scandal". Folk who cover up for pedophiles should be hung right next to them.

#3 The consortium of Hollyweird child agents could not be reached for comment.

#4 Scouts have files on child abusers within their ranks dating back to the 1940s

Seems like a pretty lame attempt to deflect blame from more recent (and I'll bet more numerous) abusers.

#5 Agree Raj, bet over the last 20, especially 10 years there has been a dramatic increase.

#6 The Tommy Vietor defense: "Dude, that was a long time ago..." This stuff has been going on in lots of organizations where adults in authority positions had access to an essentially captive audience opf potential young victims. It's sick regardless of when or where it occurred. And anyone who starts in with "...but the Catholic Church...," well, that doesn't make it right and what's the point except to change the subject.

#7 Boy Scouts teaches independence, and they are older than the ones molested by the Priests, they are also far from civilization at times. I wouldn't think they'd be good targets for a predator. I would have thought there would be a bunch of missing scoutmasters in that report.

Then again I was never a boyscout so what do I actually know.
