Locals prevent removal of Baden-Powell statue from Poole Quay

Locals on Thursday thwarted the plans of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council to remove the statue of Baden-Powel amid fears that it would be targeted. The council said it had made the decision following the listing of the statue on a website detailing potential targets for attacks. Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout movement, has been accused of racism, and being a Nazi sympathizer.

Lets ignore the good that came from the organization and the good the founder intended. Lets villify the organization instead of the predators who took advantage. Let the organization fix it thru background checks, etc. Dont take away something that is beneficial to small town America and worldwide
