Boy Scouts' 'Perversion Files': 7,819 Alleged Sexual Abusers and 12,254 Alleged Victims

By Michael W. Chapman | April 26, 2019

Dr. Janet Warren, a sex offender expert and professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia, testified in a trial in Minnesota that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have files from 1944 through 2016 that list the names of 7,819 alleged sexual abusers and 12,254 alleged victims. These files are called the "Ineligible Volunteer Files" and the documents specifically on sexual misconduct are sometimes referred to as the "Perversion Files."

As Dr. Warren testified, she has been under contract for the last five years for the Boy Scouts to review those files, code them, and place them on the Internet. Many of the names of the alleged perpetrators -- not the alleged victims -- from the files have been released to the public through sexual abuse litigation. In 2012, Oregon Judge John Wittmayer ordered that files from 1965 to 1985 -- some 1,247 entries -- be made public and posted online. They can be read here. ..........

In response to the BSA, Attorney Jeff Anderson said on Wednesday, “All the pledges and promises from the Boy Scouts of America fall short. The reality is, they have to identify the names of thousands of offenders from their secret files. The Boy Scouts need to come clean and inform the communities who these people are, what they did, and where they are today. Through a simple keystroke, they have the ability today to release the names and locations of every offender that sexually abused children."

"Absent that, any effort, promise, pledge, practice is falling short of protecting kids," he said.  "This is a time for action and truth, not a time for excuses, promises or policies.”............To Read More....

My Take - So the BSA now allows homosexuals to be scout leaders.  What in the world is wrong with these people?
