More news on this:

That is a "joke" frown . Even when I was in the Scouts, both troops in the community were rife with sexual activity. I was one of the younger scouts. The other troop was headed by a predatory pedophile.

I was in Virginia. Here is a quote from this article.
Quote:

That same year, the director of a Boy Scout camp in Virginia wrote to the Scouts' top lawyer, asking for help dealing with a veteran employee suspected of a "lifelong pattern" of abuse that had not been reported to police.


I don't know who that was but it could well describe the person who abused me: Lifelong pattern

How many lives have to be destroyed before it's taken seriously that there really is a problem?

I want to know if the name of my perp is in these files. I was shocked to read that some of the perps names were removed when they reached 75 years of age. Grrrrrrr! My perp is roughly 80 now. mad

My perp would also be over 80. However he died of congestive heart failure last December. I still want to know what else he did and to whom, etc. I also want to verify that he's the one I've been thinking it was.

Puffer,

I suppose all of us would like to know if there were other victims and how many. In my case, I never knew of any other victims of my perp, but as we always hear, there is never just one. My perp had 5 children (3 boys and 2 girls). I always wondered if he sexually abused them too. When I got too old for my perp's attraction, I suppose he must have moved on to another boy. I don't know, but maybe there were others at the same time as he was abusing me too.

Since Colorado's lousy statute of limitations has screwed me, and I can't get any help, I am really tempted to name my perp here on the forum. I suppose he or his family could sue me, but as they say, "You can't get blood out of a turnip."

There is often a convenient lack of records that might shed light on CSA episodes--convenient for those who were responsible at the time for preventing and punishing CSA. In my case, I conclude that, half a century ago, nobody gave a damn... much like now.

John,

True what you say about no one caring. That further opens the wound of feeling we have no self-worth. I am finding that the damage done from the abuse is most severe now that I am in my early 50's. I was able to suppress it more during my youth. frown I can't suppress it now, because the difficulty of being older and the poor economy affect my hire-ability now too, plus there is kind of a "build-up" factor, I'd call it.
