Could someone help me decipher a word?
The text was written by an Englishman in 1789. The word I'm having trouble with I have underlined and added a blowup of it at the bottom. The text is:

some had totally forgot every degree of obedience. I saw no one openly _____
the offenders altho they were known, and I was told that the Master and
asked in handwriting, history

I think it might be SENTRY and it is misspelt as scentry which means to stop the passage off. So it would make sense that the sentence would read I saw no one openly stop the passage of the offenders although they were known.
