    • @SnarlyYow, thanks for sharing. In multiple volunteer capacities I have met predators and folks who were wrongly accused of predation. I'd be a fool if I thought that I can now tell the difference.
    • Guilty.  I like their feel and often wear them even outside scouting.  I always buy extra every time they are on sale.   I'm very critical of the uniform, but the socks are a weakness.  
    • When our pack or troop sold wreaths, we didn't ask permission.  When other units sold candy or flowers, I doubt they asked permission. With that said, you need to provide at least some details (even if generic) to put context to the question.  
    • I have luckily never encountered such a predator ... at least to my knowledge.  But I have repeatedly seen adults who are trusting of other because of character or reputation and willing to ignore the taught rules.  We need to help others follow the rules and to remind them of the rules.  We need to not be embarrassed to call people out on the rules.  
    • Ever vigilant. And never be afraid to report YPT violations, even if they have an excuse. We all take YPT and we know the rules we must abide by. There's never an excuse not to do so.  I have experienced an adult who was a predator, he was trying to get my son to be with him alone on occasions and trying to be a family friend. I never did let him. He could have just been a guy trying to be friendly, but he raised the hackles on my wife's and my neck. He was the husband of one of our ministers. he was an absolute bore. Should be completely innocent, but again, hackles raised when he wanted to be alone with my kid.  He was eventually arrested by the FBI for trying to hook up with minors in a chat room. They arrested him at a parking lot, where he had arranged to meet a minor from that chat room.
