After a huge cache of documents about child-sexual abusers went public last year, the Boy Scouts of America are under more scrutiny than ever to make sure adults working with kids don't have pervy intentions. So the organization can't be pleased about the arrest of Brian Robbins, a scout master for a troop in Parker, on child-pornography charges.

According to the Parker Police Department, the investigation into Robbins began in January. Cut to around noon on Tuesday, when detectives from the PPD, along with helpers from the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office and the Douglas County Pattern Crimes Unit, executed a search warrant on Robbins's home, on the 22000 block of Pensive Court in the Canterberry subdivision.

A neighbor who spoke with CBS4 said Robbins and his wife lived at the address with his parents. She described them as a "Mormon family" and said she saw young men go in and out of the home often.

The Parker cops don't mention finding such individuals at the residence during their search. However, they did locate a slew of child-pornography images -- reportedly hundreds of them. Shortly thereafter, Robbins was booked on two counts of sexual exploitation of a child; his bond was set at $50,000.

Along the way, investigators discovered that Robbins was a scout master for a Parker troop. At this point, there's no evidence to suggest that he molested or exploited any of the young scouts. Anyone with information to suggest otherwise is encouraged to phone Detective Shannon Brukbacher at 303-805-6523 or e-mail her at sbrukbacher@parkerononline.org.

This is definitely not the kind of PR the Boy Scouts of American needs right now.

I know I'm beating this to death but lets compare if convicted, his sentence w/ that of Patrick Sullivan .

The video makes the situation clearer than the printed article.  This incident highlights why the  current scouting system, which demands at least 2 deep leadership and has several other safe-guards, is needed.  Glad they caught the guy.

Tell me why Mormons and Christians habitually claim to be morally-superior again...  I can't seem to put my finger on the reason.

@BackOffImStarving  As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I don't feel morally superior.  I work at walking the walk ans well as talking the talk.  We are all imperfect.  There are many people who work at being ethical and moral including a lot of Mormons, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, Sikhs, Agnostics and, yes, Atheists.  Apparently Mr. Robbins was not.  Hypocrisy and some pretense are common enough human failing.  It seems Robins went even further into duplicity, deception, and treachery although we still do not know many details.

@wdequer @BackOffImStarving  well stated wdequer. Though I'm not particularly religious myself, it doesn't take rocket science to know that you cannot speak on behalf of any movement, creed, religion, or political party as a whole considering they are all made up of Individuals who have differing attitudes and behaviors that reflect their personalities. Some (key word some) consider themselves morally superior, others are simply raised a certain way and repeat the behaviors indoctrinated into them. And others find religion later in life after much soul searching and choose it. To lump all individuals into one category based on affiliation is both unfair, and inconsiderate of the personal machinations which make us unique.
