Scouts' Dishonor


Here's a look at the trailer for "Boy Scout's Honor," a new documentary that examines the years of harrowing abuse that the organization has swept under the rug for decades:
8-year-old Aaron Averhart was just a year shy of being able to move up from Cub Scout to Boy Scout when he received a special request from an admired Boy Scout leader, William (Bill) Sheehan. As Aaron rose up the Boy Scout ranks, he slowly became aware of Sheehan’s grooming techniques and began to realize he had much more sinister intentions in store for him. 

If Aaron’s parents had known that since the 1920s the Boy Scouts of America had been keeping hidden files on dangerous pedophiles in their ranks while failing to warn the public, the police, the scouts, their parents, or even fully removing them from the Boy Scouts program, they would have never allowed young Aaron to be part of such a complicit and corrupt organization.

"Boy Scout's Honor" will be available on demand Tuesday, Dec. 13.

I must have been a pretty astute kid. I remember in first grade being encouraged to join the Cub Scouts and little Jack was like, "Oh, HELL NO!" It reeked of shady shade and I wanted no part of it.
