The Public Should Not Be Shocked That Boy Scouts Covered Up Cases Of Sexual Abuse For Decades

Attorney Kelly Clark reviews
the Boy Scouts "perversion files"

(Updated at 1:40 p.m., CDT, on 10/19/12)

Yesterday's release of the Boy Scouts' "perversion files" reveals that the organization systematically covered up child sexual abuse for more than 25 years. That probably is the most shocking part of the story for the general public. But it is not a surprise to us.

We have been reporting for months on child abuse involving Ted Rollins, CEO of Charlotte-based Campus Crest Communities. We have shown that Rollins was convicted for a 1995 assault on his 16-year-old stepson in Franklin County, North Carolina. We have shown that Rollins was investigated in 1993, based on a citizen complaint to North Carolina Social Services, for possible sexual abuse of the same stepson.

In both instances, the serious nature of Rollins' actions was covered up. In recent weeks, we've learned that powerful forces on Wall Street are trying to cover up for Rollins to this day. Campus Crest Communities completed a $380-million IPO in late 2010, and we will show in a series of upcoming posts that investment insiders are turning a blind eye to Rollins' ugly past.

We are talking about a diseased corporate culture, one that values secrecy over the well-being of children. A similar culture clearly infested the Boy Scouts. Reports CBS News:

Again and again, decade after decade, an array of authorities — police chiefs, prosecutors, pastors and local Boy Scout leaders among them — quietly shielded scoutmasters and others accused of molesting children, a newly opened trove of confidential papers shows. 
At the time, those authorities justified their actions as necessary to protect the good name and good works of Scouting, a pillar of 20th century America. But as detailed in 14,500 pages of secret "perversion files" released Thursday by order of the Oregon Supreme Court, their maneuvers allowed sexual predators to go free while victims suffered in silence.

Files released yesterday covered 1959 to 1985, and they show over and over that cover ups took place across the country. How could that happen? CBS News provides insight:

In 1972, a local Scouting executive beseeched national headquarters to drop the case against a suspected abuser because he was undergoing professional treatment and was personally taking steps to solve his problem. "If it don't stink, don't stir it," the local executive wrote. . . . 
But one of the most startling revelations to come from the files is the frequency with which attempts to protect Scouts from molesters collapsed at the local level, at times in collusion with community leaders. 
It happened when a local district attorney declined to prosecute two confessed offenders; when a three-judge panel included two men on the local Scouting executive board; when law enforcement sought to protect the name of Scouting and let an admitted child molester go free.

Such cover-ups are not limited to the world of Scouting. We've seen signs of them in the Ted Rollins story. During the 1993 sexual-abuse investigation, the family was referred to a psychologist at Duke University. Sherry Carroll Rollins stated in a solo session that a maid had been cleaning a closet when she discovered more than 100 towels, soiled with feces and the apparent by-products of anal sex. She also stated that her husband kept curious items--a spatula, bungee cord, and neckties--in a vehicle he used to drive the stepson to school.

Ted Rollins
Did the psychologist report this alarming information to authorities? Nope. He recommended that Ms. Rollins read a book called The Homosexual Matrix, so that she could better understand what likely was going on between her husband and son. Did it occur to the psychologist that maybe he needed to take steps that would put a stop to apparent abuse? We probably will never know.

When Ted Rollins did face criminal charges in 1995, the case was treated as a "simple assault," even though the 16-year-old victim had a broken nose, a torn lip, and enough blood loss that he was treated for possible shock. Our research indicates Rollins should have been charged with "assault inflicting serious injury," which might have resulted in jail time. Instead, he got off with a modest fine.

Under North Carolina law, the assault should have been treated as a case of child abuse. Any number of professionals in law enforcement and health care were required to report the beating to social services for investigation. We've seen no sign in the public record that anyone did that.

The story of the Boy Scouts' "perversion files" is not likely to go away soon, reports The Daily Beast:

Victims’ advocates say the release of the documents could lead to a new spate of criminal prosecutions or civil lawsuits from newly emboldened victims. Seattle attorney Tim Kosmoff is among those calling for a congressional probe.

Such a probe, if it happens, should not be limited to Scouting. The Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State has shown us that evidence of child sexual abuse was treated lightly in higher education. We've come across similar treatment in our reporting on CEO Ted Rollins. In fact, we soon will show that a Wall Street official has taken extraordinary steps in an effort to sweep the story out of view.

Update--The Miami Herald has a database to the Boy Scout files. Here is a link to the database:

I conducted a search for the state of Alabama, and here is a link to those results. The released files cover 1959 to 1985:

The LA Times also has one. I need to update this story with the results from Alabama.

Based on your reports, I would say these men identify as hetero. But the Scouts are worried about gays?

That psychologist at Duke needs to be hit with a malpractice suit. Good grief, what a pathetic response to a woman who needed real help.

The Roman Catholic Church was not the first institution to institutionalize paedophilia.

Churches around the globe are rife with paedophilia, and the most are into the ancient cover-up, ongoing since the first so called 'church' was 'erected.'

"Holy" and "Respectability" are words to be proven and not taken for granted.

Temple in Hollywood was and is THE most common ground for sowing paedophilia, the hidden messaging in films for children is unbelievable.

Proud to be Americans?

Walt Disney, David Rockefeller, and name a power head [Karl Rove, ET AL] not controlling the paedophilia cult U.S.A.

"... Seattle attorney Tim Kosmoff is among those calling for a congressional probe....

YES and begin with David Rockefeller the top power in the U.S.A. that has had families globally in control of every facet of the BLOB, a cult that can and does, control all the societal "movie scripts."

Ted Rollins is a great star in the movie of top power heads U.S.A.

Grade Zero movie we the people get to live through as though there is no such idea, reality.

And the greatest "King Pin and Queen Pin" too,

"... Bill Gates’ intent to internationalize, surveill and control the educational process and an entire strata of the population through the Khan Academy suggests the opening of an important new chapter toward individuals’ further integration into the unfolding global technocratic order....

Bill Gates' father is a top lawyer in Washington D.C.

Furthermore, Bill Gates and David Rockefeller are close encounters of the ? kind?

Money? Partners in global digital debt paedophiliacs vile evil lusting with-of, for, by, in total control.

"... Through a closely held equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. in turn holds a majority share and three out of five board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7. Hart machines will also be used elsewhere in the United States.

.. In other words, a candidate for the presidency of the United States, and his brother, wife and son, have a straight-line financial interest in the voting machines that could decide this fall’s election. These machines cannot be monitored by the public. But they will help decide who “owns” the White House.

.. They are especially crucial in Ohio, without which no Republican candidate has ever won the White House. In 2004, in the dead of election night, an electronic swing of more than 300,000 votes switched Ohio from the John Kerry column to George W. Bush, giving him a second term. A virtual statistical impossibility, the 6-plus% shift occurred between 12:20 and 2am election night as votes were being tallied by a GOP-controlled information technology firm on servers in a basement in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In defiance of a federal injunction, 56 of Ohio’s 88 counties destroyed all election records, making a recount impossible. Ohio’s governor and secretary of state in 2004 were both Republicans, as are the governors and secretaries of state in nine key swing states this year.

All this talk about boy scouts etc, but never the real scandal! Why is a Baldwin County Judge, Judge Michelle Hart Thomason, getting away with accepting bribes and rigging child custody cases so that proven child molesters are eventually granted custody?

For the love of money is the root of all evil.


That's why children remain exposed & in danger from the sexual predator/deviant- Ted Rollins.

And it's a DAMN shame.

How can any real remedy be forthcoming when the attorneys at the B.A.R. are in receipt of the credit which is paid to the trust funds, and the trust funds are the clients,' BUT, the client does not get the benefit of the credit paid on the trust fund of the money that is the clients.'

That is, think about this, the clients are the creditors' that have ripped Americans off to the degree of paedophilia or call it pedophilia, the correct word is paedophilia, however, America has the American version. Predatory grown humans preying upon innocent human children. OR a/the predatory criminally insane able to prey upon others without any boundaries, such as the terror war.

Our children have been raped, pillaged, plundered and it has been for years and years.

The whole American population has been literally brainwashined, propagandized and duped for years and years and years.

Financial pedophilia is happening and yet, the stories keep surfacing about how the children are being physically destroyed, but think how bad it really is:

The B.A.R. which is the United States Supreme Court, at the top level of 'governance,' gets to have the 'interest' paid on the 'monies' collected as the 'Client Trust Accounts.' This was in actuality set up to serve such as, but not limited to, the human beings, grownups and children, who are not able financially to be represented by an attorney.

But, the interest is paid, for example, to the B.A.R. by and through the/a foreclosure mill attorney/s that have huge client trust accounts from the creditors.'

Where do children learn the value of trust in an account that does not do what it is designed to do, but indeed, it is financial pedophilia for the child's future.

The system of our courts do not have any regulator to check the unchecked interest paid by the creditors' to the ? Supreme Court ? and therefore, our children have truly gotten the pedophilia gulag when Campus Crest has received an unchecked sum for the continuance of American no values other than how to prey upon innocence.

The courts are not exactly the representative body for a protection of the highest standards, when the monies for the "poor" have certainly not functioned in this time and the interest continued to pay for the protection that has not been.

Ted Rollins and all the 'brand' of this 'human' are what the American system is at the tap root.

Again, interest paid on the trust accounts pay a certain level of 'rich,' Campus Crest? Where does the money flow from, to Ted Rollins, if not from the 'investors,' who are the Supreme Court and the Oregon Court and the Ninth Circuit and name a court in the U.S. that is not benefitting from financial pedophilia.

It is a culture of corruption and it begins with the tap root of so called credit-debt. This is a pedophile mentality.

Stealing our children's future "wealth," and simultaneously destroying their bodies and minds is definitely a country that has failed.

We have the Supreme Court and the underbelly of this operation to demand accountability for the 'poor' to receive the 'interest' for the representation in the court system of pedophilia financial and other, cover-ups.

The cases in the Supreme Court are Gearren et al v. The McGraw-Hill Companies Inc et al, No. 11-1550; Gray et al v. Citigroup Inc et al, No. 11-1531.


The Supreme Court of the United States, but of course, would not hear a case against McGraw Hill and Citigroup for the losses in workers' retirement portfolios.

Our highest U.S. 'Court' would choose to do exactly as IT chooses to ~ rape the rule of law, and commit pedophilia to due process.

It is about the money in America, everything in this time is about the money. Been getting this critical mass criminally insane freight train readying for the head on collision since the debt credit model got sold to US, and we are way down the river now.

Children are not safe in a world where the money is used as a weapon against the majority of human beings via the small few that are inhuman in behavior.

Ted Rollins is a very sick human, behaving as a seriously dangerous predator and the institutions, such as Campus Crest, which have been intentionally constructed, for saving and/or providing for the children as primary examples, are opposite of the sales' brands!

Hollywood manufactures a Truman Show and Americans unfortunately are no different than any and all humans that have been destroyed as an entire 'nation state,' in the past by the same 'ruthless empire builders.' REBs.

Same old story regarding how entire masses of humans, China and the 1800s, are wiped out by drugs and corruption.

First step in recovery is to demand transparency, complete, as in the Boy Scouts and other pedophilia stories now flooding the airwaves ~ credit-debt flooding the accounts of Ted Rollins, Campus Crest and other seriously dangerous investments that cause financial pedophilia such as the case the Supreme Court would not hear of the workers' whose families are suffering or these people would not seek remedy in the Court. The Court that is paid sums of interest via Citi and McGraw, et al., via Trust Accounts.

Financial Pedophilia ~ Paedophiliac Financial Maniacs, must be stopped in order to stop the body-mind predatory inhuman non-American behaviors,' all the way to the tap root.

And, the REBs are for almost the entirety, pedophiles due to being criminally insane predatory inhuman freaks of nature.

These dangerous freaks of nature are not invisible, see how the unlawful credit debt, debt sold as credit NOT 'money,' screams bloody murder from cradle to grave.

Americans must muster up the courage to demand transparency of the pedophilia in every dark and dreary. No more coverups.

When the power in the U.S. owns the credit-debt and the admission of this power is they are the BLOB that can be the false market communism dressed up as though a respectable, and Hollywood gets to sell us financial pedophilia and so does TV, all the BLOB's agendas are our 'information'!? stream?!:

"... In the video, Comedian Sarah Silverman makes a proposal to 'scissor' Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson if he will donate his money to President Barack Obama and not Willard Mitt Romney.

“If you give that $100 million to Obama instead of Romney, I will, well, I won’t have sex with you because we’re not married and I’m a nice girl. But, I will scissor you wearing a bikini bottom through to fruition, that means until you c-m.”

.. Sarah Silverman then demonstrates the position with a small dog....
