This is a huge victory for kids, victims, parents and law enforcement. We are grateful to the brave Scout victims whose courage and compassion have led to this impending disclosure.
It’s helpful and healing every time society learns more about adults who commit or conceal devastating child sex crimes, especially institutions where the crimes and cover ups are likely to continue.
Scout lawyers are dead wrong. The release of these records will not deter abuse reporting. It will, however, deter cover-ups of heinous child sex crimes.
