Iowa Acacia could have killed someone

Iowa Acacia story link. Shame on the chapter. Hurrah for Iowa yanking them out. Expel them all–Hank Nuwer


I have so many things to say about this but most of all, three families spoke there in Fall 2018 so if any of the Acacia members were there during our talk they KNOW all the dangers of hazing. These people did so many of the various forms of hazing and should be brought up on criminal charges!! Sadly Iowa’s hazing law is weak and if a state senator or rep wants to introduce a felony hazing law, the AHC has one ready and waiting for them to use and pass so Iowa students can be better protected. Prosecute hazing crimes!! These are terrible crimes and although no one died, people were damaged – it’s disgusting. What the hell is wrong with people?!
