Something that stood out on your post and others so far that I think has
been overlooked. The Buddy. aka The Instigator. The one who laid on the dare.
The posts I havve seen I think are correct in that the lie should be taken up
with the Scout and his leader, but everyone seems to forget about the buddy
who dared the Scout to do something wrong and foolish.
Instigators need to be taken to task just as seriously as the ones who
were foolish enough to listen to them. More so, for they are having their fun
at the expense and misery of others and they know it!
Yep, the boy who let fly the arrow was wrong, and he does need to learn
not to listen when someone dares him to do something wrong. But the fake
buddy who did the daring, I'm not entirely sure that hanging should be out of
the question (in a figurative sense, no reason to waste good rope). Certainly
he needs some serious counseling and perhaps watching in the future.
