Boy Scouts have a 'pedophile epidemic' and are hiding hundreds in its ranks, lawyers claim
[ABC] The Boy Scouts of America are continuing to cover-up a "pedophilia epidemic within their organization," a group of lawyers alleged Tuesday in a new lawsuit.

The Abused in Scouting lawyers said they've identified 350 previously unknown scoutmasters and volunteers who allegedly preyed on boys ‐ and whose names were not known to law enforcement or in the BSA's internal database, which critics have called "perversion files."

"You can't look at these files and not come to the conclusion that this was a massive problem that was hidden," attorney Tim Kosnoff said at a press conference.

"We know that when a pedophile abuses a victim, it's not just one," added attorney Stewart Eisenberg. "So each of the 350 abusers have dozens of other victims who have not come forward."

The revelation that the lawyers had identified a small army who they claim are previously unknown scout sex abusers was contained in the lawsuit filed Monday in Philadelphia by a Pennsylvania man identified only as "J.D." who claims he was assaulted "hundreds" of times over a span of four years in the 1970s.

J.D., who lives in Wilkes-Barre, identified his attacker in the lawsuit as Paul Antosh, who also lives in the Pennsylvania city.

#1 What can possibly be expected when an entitlement group is protected by the gov't, laws, and the courts. We're poisoning our own wells in the name of diversity and inclusion. This is a problem (more correctly) an evil of our own making.

#2 Amen to that, Besoeker.
So many of our worst problems are self-inflicted wounds: tolerance and even outright encouragement of illegal immigration.
Building up China's economic hence military power.
Forever wars on the Asian landmass.
Destroying the manufacturing base of our middle class.
Destroying our public educational system.

Every one of these an own goal, scored by our idiot political class.

#3 These are all welfare state enablers for the establishment making the gap between you and them wider.

#4 Ref #2: Building up China's economic hence military power.

The father of the 'new China.' Hundreds of millions of illiterate, low-wage earners must be exploited. Without them, where would Walmart, Target, Chinese Pharmaceuticals (HK) Co Ltd, and COSCO Shipping be today ?

Globalism and central planning will bring peace.

#8 A definite case of institutional capture by leftists.

#9 It's not so much the gay folks, Raj. It's the lack of traditional volunteers for these positions that exacerbates the problem.

When before the dads, brothers and uncles used to fill the needed roles, now those folks have nowhere near the presence in the organization(s). Could be because there are few present, or the SJW scrutiny the potential volunteers face, like 'inclusiveness', 'white privilege training', etc.

So guess what? The organizations put out public calls for leaders and the pedos (usually hetero and seemingly 'good') see a target and will sit through the indoctrination BS in order to get their fix.
