I can well understand that you feel some concern over whether or not
people opine that teh CSE should resign or be placed "on administrative
leave" until all of this is straightened out. You very appropriately
mentioned the points of the Scout Law that BSA Leaders should be
applying to the situation.
As someone looking in from the slightly different perspective of another
Scout Association, let me ask this question:
If the CSE was a volunteer Leader, what would the BSA do?
Please enlighten me if I am wrong, but the way I usnderstand it from
previous posts, a DE would hand deliver a letter to the individual in
question. The letter would inform the person under arrest or accusation
for a felony that his or her services are not required by the BSA at
this time. I also have been given to understand that no due process is
required before this action can be taken.
If this is the BSA's standard, should it not be applicable to EVERYONE
in the BSA, including the CSE?
