LA TIMES: Boy Scouts helped alleged molesters cover tracks, files show

Public Advocate lawyers have given the details in our Supreme Court briefs based on published accounts. Now a public court record details the many attempts by adult homosexual predators assaulting young boys over decades.

And the BSA leadership actually assisted the predators according to the records.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting

When volunteers and employees were suspected of sexually abusing children, Boy Scout officials often didn't tell police, files from 1970-91 reveal. In many cases they sought to hide the situation.

And this from the LA Times:

Over two decades, the Boy Scouts of America failed to report hundreds of alleged child molesters to police and often hid the allegations from parents and the public.

A Los Angeles Times review of 1,600 confidential files dating from 1970 to 1991 has found that Scouting officials frequently urged admitted offenders to quietly resign - and helped many cover their tracks.
