In the Philippines, Gerarda Villa’s Crusade Against Violence

The mother of hazing victim Lenny Villa has begun an anti-hazing organization called Crusade Against Violence. Unlike most USA anti hazing groups, Mrs. Gerarda Villa’s avowed purpose is to shut down all Filipino fraternities. The latest to die is Guillo Servando. 

Moderator: I don’t know what to think? What is your opinion? At least one suspect in the Filipino fraternity hazing death of Guillo Servando has been placed by the government there in a Witness Protection Program. First time that I can ever find that happening.
