Yesterday more than 14,000 pages from the organizations so called "Perversion files" were released to the public. These files reveal the names of suspected child molesters who worked in the organization dating back to the 70s.

In many cases these people were never reported to the police or charged with a crime. Jason Felch has been following this story for the Los Angeles Times and he joins us now in studio.

If you or your family have been involved in the Boy Scouts, we'd love to hear how you feel about the release of this information. Follow the link to join our Public Insight Network.
