    37 fraternity members charged in hazing death of pledge

    Five were charged with third-degree murder, and the others were charged with assault, hindering apprehension and hazing.

    The affidavit also says the national president, upon hearing they had an unconscious pledge, ordered them to cover up the fraternity's involvement before they sought medical help.

    I will never understand why people want to be part of this nonsense.

    How many fraternity chapters are there in America?

    How many instances are there of someone falling on his head and not taken to the hospital?

    There are two baseball teams in Chicago, by comparison, and the same number of recent instances of someone falling on his head and not being taken to the hospital - one.

    Routine and purposeful hazing is totally the same as an isolated accident.

    Pledges doing stupid shit to show they belong is rare? Is that what you're telling me?

    John Danks accidentally didn't take a paralyzed friend to the hospital.

    I'm not sure these are your stereotypical "Frat Bros":

    Those facing third-degree murder charges are Charles Lai, Kenny Kwan, Raymond Lam, Daniel Li and Sheldon Wong.


    We're also talking about a school in New York City that is part of the City University of New York, and is one of the most diverse schools in the country:

    Confirming its reputation for having a student body as varied as the city of New York in which it is located, Baruch College ranked #2 this year on the list of “Most Ethnically Diverse Colleges” in the country. According to U.S. News & World Report, this list highlights the colleges where “students are most likely to encounter undergraduates different from themselves.”

    We're not exactly talking about a bunch of blue bloods, steeped in Southern culture.

    These kids wouldn't get into "Drew's" frat at UVa.

    All fraternity members are "bros." It's in the Constitution.

    Does John Danks take all of his would-be friends to the top of that structure and piledrive them off before they can be friends? And, if so, does it have a direct correlation with the sport of baseball?

    I wondered how long it would take Dick to step in and defend the frat bros. I haven't even read the story to see if they're worth defending, but I knew it wouldn't be long. Just an observation. :cool:

    I didn't defend them.

    Congratulations on being a sensitive soul, though.
