Did you see this? 21 year old adult and 3 older teens attack 12 year old boy scout at camp--force him to drink urine

What do you think of this? A 21 year old adult and 3 teenagers held down a 12 year old and made him drink urine for supposedly making a verbal racial slur to another boy scout.

  • after the stories my DH has told me about boy scouts i will never let any future son of mine get involved (unless my DH is w/ him). which is sad b/c the boy scouts stand for such good things. my DH never had anything done to him, but he heard & saw things no young child should EVER have to see.

  • We had a boy scout incident in our town years ago. I would not allow my 12 year old to go away to any camp these days. My younger brother was raped by a male police officer at a camp.

  • That is why I send my husband as the leader to protect my child and look after his friends. I am curious if a background check would show anything on the 21 y.o. because the leaders are not fingerprinted and they should be. I think that is why they like my husband going because he has had background checks run on him for coaching.

    As for the 21 y.o. I say charge him with kidnapping, assult and anything else they can think of. They need to start setting examples and make him be held accountable. I don't care if the kid called someone a racial slur. He is a CHILD and needs guidance not someone's sick sense of justice. The other two boys I think need to send the rest of their teenage years and maybe a few more in jail. I know some think it maybe harsh but kids do this because they think they can get away with it. I say set examples. Maybe do lashings like they do in Singapore.
