We continue to see cases of predators hunting on the rooms, grooming and stalking their prey and sometimes the children of their prey.
I submit that members aware of the criminal activity should also be held accountable. If someone in the AA rooms admits to criminal actions, others in the rooms have a responsibility to report that to law enforcement authorities.
I would submit they should be charged with obstruction of justice, and also held personally liable in civil court because of their failure to report criminal activity, such as the athletic department in the Sandusky case is now going through.
This is the real difference between the rooms of AA and grocery stores, coffee shops etc that the AA apologists continue to campare. People outside the rooms of AA do not condone or remain silent in the presence of criminal evil.
I would also submit that if there is a group effort to pass along a predator to another set of unsuspecting victims by sending the predator to another AA group, or for that matter another rehab business, that would be a willful act of coverup that RICO statutes should come into play.
