Reader: Boy Scouts' perversion files aren't complete -- because my molester isn't in them
Our recent post about the Boy Scouts' release of its so-called perversion files (reports about hundreds of abusive Scout leaders and the like) focused on local offenders like Floyd Slusher, seen here. But one of our readers knows that not every perpetrator is named in the documents...from terrible personal experience.
I was sexually molested by my scoutmaster in Arvada in the early to mid-1970's. My troop met in the basement of a Catholic church. Unfortunately his name is not in the "perversion files," but I would sure like to know if there were other victims. For anyone that was abused, I would suggest joining malesurvivor.org.
