    • You're the one who keeps calling on Charter Organizations to have complete control. If that's the case, then they need to foot the bill for Victim Compensation. Somewhere, a long time ago, those adults were approved to be leaders by a Charter 
    • This is a complete joke and insulting. Please, enough with your disdain of Professionals.  
    • I think we agree on this.  There should be a better way.  The victims of the past should have been given justice many years ago.  They weren't.  The executive board and the employees were (and still are) more concerned with keeping their secrets and hiding their complicity than with giving justice to the victims.    
    • Sure.  Have some hats printed.
    • Frankly, I am very frustrated that the "natural" response from 90% of the commentators, Scouts, victims and Scouting volunteers is to automatically assert that the natural remedy to heinous crimes of abuse committed by, in some cases, people that are dead or long since removed from their positions within Scouting, is to take money from todays' innocent children and volunteers and give it to the victims.  There is nothing moral about taking from the innocents of today, and the future, to give to victims of the past.  Nothing moral at all.  I get anger on the part of the victims, and a desire to shut down the organization, but I don't get why money salves the conscience of the current volunteer leadership.  yet Turley's letter seems to me to be an admission that we should just give it all to the alleged victims, and then everything will be ok.  Well, I never abused anyone, and I resent being asked through ever-increasing financial demands of the organization to subsidize bad actors of the past.
