Boy Scouts of America officials didn't call police in 1979 after Turley acknowledged molesting three Orange County boys, records show.
"You do not want to broadcast to the entire population that these things happen," A. Buford Hill Jr., a former Orange County Scouting executive, said of officials' decision not to contact authorities. "You take care of it quietly and make sure it never happens again."

I must have missed the outraged condemnation from users here. I must have missed the call for disbandment of the BSA. I seem to have missed the call for the imprisonment of any and all even remotely connected. I seemed to have missed all of that, aside from a few passing comments.
