Excellent article and I do hope and pray that the perpetrator is caught soon and put away in jail. Way to go boys.

When my dad was a teenager he hitchiked to his diving practice. One day he caught a ride in a truck. The man driving showed my dad pn then exposed himself, and my dad was lucky to get away. He used that example to teach us about "stranger danger." Note the orientation of the man in the scout story and also the orientation of the truck driver in my dad's story.

I think there needs to be stronger laws involving crimes where the perpetrator is the same gender as the victim, and grooming should be illegal. Such acts are much more destructive to the victim, and need to be punished more harshly. Second offense should result in life imprisonment.

I was trembling when I read this..my hands are still shaking. The sad thing is wherever you go or live there are always these dangerous misfits(that's what I call them) What a wise Mother to teach her child that password and the other boy. I'm so grateful those children are safe. But isn't it a shame that our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren have to grow up and experience these awful situations. I hope everyone read this - it's an eye opener and a safety guideline.
