    This is just sickening, disgusting, and heartbreaking! Are there any victims from the GIRL SCOUTS organization? How many years does it take the FEDS to close a case for Christ’s sake….now I’m torn about buying cookies this year….just awful☹️

    • Just buy your cookies at the supermarket like everybody else:-)

      It’s a shame all the years probably all the decades they had to get rid of this scum bags in their organization and for them to do it themselves and to protect the children but they did not…. I guess the boards of directors over the years just wanted the problem to go away by sweeping it under the rug rather than being proactive….. and that’s really a shame it’s come down to this and there’s a lot of good kids who need their services and would have benefited and a lot of people who were good Scouts leaders . It’s a shame for the kids especially .

      Yeah, but female predators is still a bit taboo and gets covered up even moreso.

    Well they could have avoided all this I’ll betcha…. when people are complaining to them about somebody molesting their kid where they were hearing rumors and stories from other kids they probably had plenty of opportunity to look into it themselves and ditch the ones they knew they had to get rid of in order to protect the children and the organization…. so now a lot of kids who would have benefited from this organization will do without it and that is really a shame …. a lot of good things came out of it …. why the hell didn’t they do the right thing ?
    It’s a shame when people just want to cover up the truth rather than doing something about it when they have the chance…. shame on those people and the boards of directors over the years you could have done something and made a difference . Obviously they just really didn’t care and only wanted to enjoy the status of being a big name ….. but look at them now .

    If only the Church could go bankrupt…

  7. Lol seems a correlation to the Catholic Church

  8. Girls Scout: keep calm carry on banking cookies
    Boys scout: eating cookies and having it.

  9. I was in Cubs and scouts
    Hated it cuz my dad joined as a scout leader

  10. who the hell do these people think they are… catholic priests!

  11. GOODBYE Boy Scouts, and GOOD RIDDANCE!!!

    • Yeah. We can’t have boys doing boy stuff and learning survival skills. Best they just play Xbox all day.

    • @Green Bastard “Green Bastard”, I presume you learned you earned your persona and nom de plume in the Boy Scouts. You prove my point! Thanks!

  12. They are better off in a street gang.

  13. hang the perpetrators publicly

  14. It was pretty much destroyed once it started allowing girls and Trans to enter its organization…….

  15. Think of all of the “girls” who won’t be able to join the Boy Scouts now. 😆

  16. *insert Russell Peters dad voice… “somebody gonna get hurt real bad'” *
    …SOMEbody is gonna get a pardon. Well, maybe the big orange fella could bail them out (waiting for the plea on Fox and Friends) with some of his billions? Boy scouts? Good cause? Any billionaire? Anyone? *crickets*

    its because Liberal laws have gone into effect and have affected their well being❗😐

  18. When they were a religious based organization for BOYS ONLY they were booming.
    Once they lowered their standards and admitted gay scout leaders and girls they were doomed.

  19. Letting predators become troop leaders, what did you think was going to HAPPEN !?!? Way to go Demonrats!?
