Boy Scouts Release Sex-Abuse Documents

The Boy Scouts of America released 14,500 pages of so-called “perversion files,” which include details of child molestation at the hands of scoutmasters between 1959 and 1985, and reveal that more than a third of such instances were not reported to police. What do you think?

“They should have named the file something else, like ‘Boring Work Stuff.’”

Troy Hartung • Systems Analyst

“Fortunately, I was lucky enough to grow up with a scoutmaster who was very open about his molestation habits.”

Dane Czulewicz • Touch-Up Painter


“At least those Boy Scouts were protected from the presence of gay people.”

Margaret Waxman • Weigh Station Inspector
