Thread Name: BS: What should happen to the IL hazers?
Subject: RE: BS: What should happen to the IL hazers?
There was a hazing death out here in NY a few weeks ago. An 18 year old boy was pledging a fraternity that had already been barred from the SUNY Plattsburgh campus and as his final hazing activity, had to drink several gallons of water through a funnel. He died due to swelling of the brain caused by excessive water ingestion. The excuse by the boys who made him drink it? "He didn't have to drink it. He could've stopped any time and we wouldn't have thought any less of him." Ummmmm... yeah, right.
