Kathy: From my understanding of the original posting we
are talking about a first time offense here not a
multipul time offender, I think it rather harsh to just
up and kick him out for his first laps in judgement.
If we kicked everyone out for lapses in judgement I
don't think there would be a need for Scouting because
all the kids would have been kicked out. The purpose of
Scouting is to teach kids to be better people not turn
our backs on them for one mistake.
Now if I misread the first posting and this is a reacurring problem
with this kid then I can see the need to have him removed, but only
after all avenues
have been tride to resolve the problem.
