Sexual Offenders: Perversion Files | Boy Scouts

It is said that it takes a village to raise a child. The essence of the meaning is that our kids learn from their environment and the more environments they are exposed to, the better equipped they will be to handle them once they are adults. To achieve this, we put our trust in institutions, institutions like our community schools, religious organizations, and youth organizations.

Here on Awareness, we have learned about sexual offenders, we know that their deviancy has no limits, we know that they pose as model citizens, cloaking themselves in kindness. Imagine for a moment, tough as it may be, what the perfect environment to abuse children would look like to a sexual offender. A secluded place, like a camp or the woods, a place where life skills can be taught to build trust, away from parents overnight. Knowing what we know now, it sounds like a scary place to put our kids, doesn’t it, well it exists, not in our nightmares, it exists nestled within a historic institution, one known for its oath.

On today’s episode, we will examine one of the largest cases in history, of documented sexual abuse that went unreported. We are going to look at how one of the world’s most respected and trusted youth organizations became a beacon for pedophiles, We are going to look at how they documented the sexual abuse of its scouts, and why it was never reported to authorities, let alone parents…if this episode doesn’t make you furious, not sure what will…
