I think you "almost" made a mistake here. When you invited the one young
man in to your home you were opening yourself up to serious problems.
However, since his brother joined him before he actually came into your
house, you were probably safe.
I would compare this to having Scouts come to your home for Merit Badge
Counseling. They must use the "buddy system", whereby they travel in pairs.
This, while not offering complete safety for the Scouts, (or the Scouter),
goes a long way towards preventing abuse.
Darn shame a person can't just do the right thing anymore.
