  1. The point is that AA meeting can be vey dangerous! You even have people dealing drugs and trying to kill each other. Not a safe place for teens or minors. This is what happens when courts mandate people to AA meetings. Then we have AA inviting violent criminals to AA meetings on their first day out of prison!

    Churches also need to be aware of the danger they are putting their parishioners in by allowing AA meetings in their basements! They need really good insurance that includes sexual molestation, because Judges are mandating violent sexual predators to AA and NA meetings as well.

    AA Board voted to not put in any safety measures in place to stop the sexual abuse against children and teens in Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Here is a link with the sentencing of this AA member, and more details about the entire crime.
