Haley Shelton started this petition to Scouts BSA/ Boy Scouts of America

In 2017, a 16 year-old New Jersey girl's life changed forever.  While at a pajama-themed party, she was raped.  Not only was she raped, but the rape was filmed by her rapist and circulated.  When she and her parents asked this boy to stop sharing the video, he declined.  Below, a quote from NBC.com, dated July 3, 2018"

"The suspect, identified in court papers as G.M.C., in 2017 filmed himself with a girl, "Mary," who was also 16 at the time, in a closed off, dark basement and then sent the clip to friends with a text: "[w]hen your first time having sex was rape," according to the appeals court ruling."

What got my attention, other than the obvious, about this case was that the original judge gave this "G.M.C" leniency because he "came from a good family" and is, among other things, an Eagle Scout.

When I think of Eagle Scouts, I think of young men and women of supreme moral character.  I don't think of rapists.  I am asking for signatures so as to petition Scouts BSA/ Boy Scouts of America to strip this "G.M.C." of his Eagle Rank, and thus send a message that there is no room for rapists in Scouting.
