Subject: RE: BS: What should happen to the IL hazers?
Ditto for what JeffP said. This is completely criminal behavior. Since they are minors and no one is dead or apparently very seriously injured, they will probably not be tried as adults and probably won't have a criminal record.

But some very thorough counseling and anger management therapy is in order, plus enough punishment to get the girls involved to take their culpibility for the incident seriously.

I have no problems with parents (if they choose to) allowing their children to drink at home, in private; the kids are supervised that way and can't go out and harm others while they learn to cope with the effects alcohol. But providing a keg for a group of minors in public?! Could be a indicator of why the kids involved were so irresponsible; they aren't learning it at home. If true, the parent(s) (or the adult who purchased the keg) involved should face criminal charges for knowingly supply minors with alcohol.
