    What is the protocol?

    Thank you for all of the feedback and input. We received the letter. It is from our local council SE. It references the allegations and indicates that they will inform of any change to his status. I left a message for him at the number provided. I will call again on Tuesday after the holiday. I have been in email contact with the troop CC who does not seem happy with my questions at all. I will keep you updated as to how this plays out. My son still seems in shock and is maintaining his innocence. We have questioned him about anything he could have said or done that could have been misconstrued. So far, nothing other than what I have previously mentioned. The accuser’s dad is not a leader. However the other tent mate’s dad is now a leader and those two boys are best friends and have been in scouts together from the beginning. In fact my son drove in the car to and from the camp out with these boys and the dad (2+ hours each way).

    What is the protocol?

    I have only had contact with the Committee Chair. No one else has spoken to me or my son. I agree my son did not choose his words wisely.

    What is the protocol?

    We asked and no police were involved. We asked if there were witnesses and were told no. Only the accuser has been spoken with.

    What is the protocol?

    If he did threaten to harm the boy I agree he should be in trouble. But he is claiming that he never threatened the boy at all.

    What is the protocol?

    My son told the other scout that we would kill him (our son) if his new equipment was lost. According to my son he never threatened the other boy.

    What is the protocol?

    My son supposedly threatened to kill him. My son says that he got angry and said that his parents would kill him if his new equipment was lost.

    I believe so. He just bridged so I am not 100% sure.

    What is the protocol?

    My son is a second year boy scout and was accused by one of his tent mates (a 1st year boy scout) of verbally threatening him. There were no witnesses. The alleged incident was reported 2 days later. There have been no prior accusations, issues or incidents involving my son. No one from the troop spoke with my son or asked him what happened, or even if it happened. Our first indication of an issue was a phone call several days later telling us that we would be receiving a Cease Participation letter via certified mail withing the next day or two. We were told that the investigation would be ongoing and take several months. In the meantime, my son claims that he never made the threats and that the boy took some of his camping equipment and hid it. My son got angry and told him that his parents would kill him if his new equipment was lost. The boy finally showed him where the equipment was. Do I believe my son? Mostly I do. Did my son get mad and say something he shouldn't have and probably didn't mean? Most likely. My son is devastated at his exclusion and devastated at missing summer camp. Is this the proper protocol? I have been searching online for some guidance as to the proper protocol for this. I haven't found anything definitive. Thank you in advance.
