Hazing alleged inNew York

Here is the link to the New York Post story

 

Here is an excerpt:

Two Medgar Evers College freshmen have blown the whistle on a CUNY ­sorority’s secret hazing.

Wooed by Gamma Beta Delta, Shawntee Caton, 17, and Gabby Jones, 18, had planned to join the impressive-seeming sisterhood when things turned ugly. They were blindfolded, interrogated about sex acts, humiliated and asked if they could be tied to a tree naked, the girls told The Post.

Their 10-hour ordeal began Sept. 21 when suddenly strict sorority sisters took the girls’ bags and cellphones, ushering them and six other pledges into a stifling, dark basement with a radio blaring static.

They got questionnaires asking whether they were sexually active, how many sex partners they had, whether they were gay or bisexual, whether they had engaged in a threesome or were willing to, and whether they had ever gone to an orgy.

Each was blindfolded and led separately upstairs to a room and surrounded by 20 to 30 women, they said. The tone got “nasty.”
