Where in gods name was the SM and all the other adults in the troop???????
Sorry, but, my jaw is a gape that no adult took action until the PLC got up
a petition! Boy run of course, but, adult supervised and guided all the
way! That guy didn't need an intervention for the committee, he needed to
be booted out on his butt by the SM ( I certainly would have) or other adult
the first time he was "stunningly cruel"
I there is anything worth zero-tolerance it's anything that puts or boys at
any sort of situation where they are abused by an adult, and believe me
folks, "stunningly cruel" is abuse than can do untold damage to a child.
