    Boy Scout Oath, updated for current times:

    On my honor, I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
    And to make sure I’m available to be sexually abused by my mentor.

    The former Boy Scout troop leader accused of sexually assaulting young boys gave them alcohol and pornography and ordered them not to tell, threatening at least one victim with a handgun, according to police.

    Police said David Kress, 52, of Thompson, sexually assaulted at least half a dozen boys ages 11 to 16 over a period of 20 years while leading Boy Scout Troop 66.

    Victims told police Kress gave them alcohol and showed them pornographic magazines before raping them and asking them to perform sexual acts on each other, according to the warrant for his arrest.

    The victims told police Kress would sexually assault them on Boy Scout camping trips, at his home in Thompson and at various houses where Kress was installing counter tops through his company New England Interior, the warrant says.

    Kress told one victim he “had to take this to the grave” and pulled out a handgun in front of another boy, telling him the gun “was for his parents if he talked,” according to the warrant.

    A victim told police that at one point, another scout leader walked into the bathroom while Kress was sexually assaulting him. According to the warrant, Kress said he was checking the scout for bruises, and the troop leader left.

    Teen boys are minors. And this isn’t about sex, it’s about control.

    I’m not sure what your point is?

    I might have not been clear. Sexual abuse among minors is never OK. My only point is that way too often this “control” is accepted by the minor, and that is not OK. I do not condone this in any way. However, it happens more than we care to admit, and the “control” issue is indeed part of the problem.
