Hazing News

Why not have a death penalty instead?

From the Cincinnati Enquirer*

  • Miami University of Ohio’s Delta Tau Delta fraternity has been suspended until the year 2034 for violently hazing its pledges.

Moderator:  Well deserved punishment. Miami tries to send a message.

This one might send a more lasting message.  Your chapter’s history ends today. Go and NEVER come back.

In the meantime, 15 years DOES show Miami means business. Good show.


*Members of Delta Tau Delta hit students with a spiked paddle, kicked them, spit on them and forced them to smoke marijuana and drink substantial amounts of alcohol, according to a report released earlier this year.
