Is it a disappointment that BSA hasn't immediately kicked these guys out?
Or are we waiting for "due process". I'm still livid.

Leave No Trace has been part of the BSA training since the 70's. Old school
stuff like pioneering (chopping trees up to build towers and bridges) went
away and Leave No Trace came in. LNT is built into the Advancement program
so all Scouts learn. Â Backpacking trips into wilderness areas include full
adoption of LNT, and are generally only for older and experienced Scouts. Â
Many LNT instructors are Scouters. So, yep Scouting teaches LNT.
Obviously this guy is a bozo. Any group of people seems to have at least
one, and so does Scouting.
