THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I read in the weekly that Boy Scouts of America has been found negligent in the case of Siegfried Hepp, a Connecticut troop leader accused of sexually assaulting multiple Scouts. Hepp was convicted of unlawful sexual touching of a minor in 1999. Instead of telling parents or law enforcement about the abuse, plaintiffs said the Boy Scouts of America covered it up in order to protect its all-American image. One Scout leader named in a file presented as evidence was accused of molesting 34 boys. The jury in the case agreed, hitting the Scouts with $7 million in penalties. They also awarded further punitive damages, which will be determined by the judge at a separate trial. According to the Boy Scouts of America’s 2013 financial report, the organization had $1.5 billion in net assets. Do you think 7 million is enough?
$1.5 Billion? WTF…what kind of scam are they running?- nik
