    • "Trust but Verify" is a much better policy than "A Scout is Trustworthy" because obviously some are not.  
    • You have no evidence for any of this.  You are making assumptions about a kid you have never met.  You have no idea what his motivation is (you offer a single possibility).  It is possible that his parent's would have come to his defense no matter what.  He could have been 100% truthful with his parents and they could have still reacted like this, some parents do this with teachers no matter how bad their kid is.  You don't think scout age kids learn language from friends at school? I certainly did.   I went through a similar stage around my early years in scouts.  I had a wake up moment during an interaction with some good friends and a good teacher who called me out. Assumptions without evidence is 90% of what is wrong with the discussion on the internet. 
    • I think it would be especially appropriate to include this, perhaps one of our nation's greatest sermons on gratitude:  
    • Our council camp allows bikes, helmets are required.  We do have several program areas that would take quite a while to get to from the waterfront or pool areas, so it can be a big help.  I saw a troop this past summer that brought in a whole trailer of bike, and their scouts rode pretty much every where during program hours.
