They really shouldn't have hazing deaths, in the 21st century.That behavior is based on tradition and prestige. It leads to humiliation, and alot of alcohol poisoning.

Over and over this happens. STOP this stupid senseless loss of life because of click fraternities. These are supposed to be places of learning but maybe not so much anymore.

Hazing are way to humiliate and break their initiates psychologically so that they can control them. Also, it encourages others not to talk for fear of reprisals (from law enforcement, other members of the fraternity, and quite possibly the collegiate institution itself) for breaking the fraternal code. Also, they tend to get a leg up from their brothers/sisters academically, making it difficult for those who try.

"How many kids will have to die and how many will have to bear lifetime scars as a result of frat-rat hijinks?" is the usual question found in one report after another about the Greek system hazing and binge drinking culture. The answer is that this will never end because frat rats embody a psychological type and mentality that is very much valued in American society. It is from this group that athletes and later the generals and captains of industry, the military, the big business and right-wing politics are recruited. These jobs require aggressiveness, ruthlessness, and the ability to… Read more »

I know this neighborhood very well. I grew up there, and have not been there for ages, It is mind boggling to me that in 2019, young men and women are still being initiated into these organizations as a means of socializing and acquiring a degree of social standing amongst their peers. It is really NOT going to make a difference later in life. Witnessing these fraternal organizations with their functions at a young point in life drove myself and all of my peers away from them , not wanting to have anything to do with them.

0:57 when you send your child to college, you should have raised them to be responsible adults. Many of today's 25+ year olds don't even compare to the 18 yr olds that stormed Normandy etc.

I think all fraternities and sororities should be disbanded nationally. Parents should discourage their kids from joining, as well. Students need to make friends on their own, based on common interests, not because of some desperate need to be accepted or inebriated.

It is my statement that Matt Farrow is with the Nigerian underworld and is the real leader of the fallen extended royal family members who joined the underworld, framing Donald Knorr who is innocent of this charge. Donald Knorr was assigned to perceive a particular way which made him appear suspect to daughter Amy Knorr. His perception set prevented him from pertaining to the history of Amy Knorr. Donald Knorr did, however, pertain to his own bloodline lineage and history. Donald Knorr did plan to tell Amy Knorr the basic essentials before his death; information about the vault account value,… Read more »

Everyone is not supposed to go in debt after a college degree.
It has gotten to the point that it is not about preparing people for the future. It's all about the money. If you all were as smart as you think you are, then you would realize that all of your jobs have been sent overseas. There is a movement to destroy the United States. Even McDonalds is computerizing.
Your best bet was to go into the military where they teach you how to survive and they would have paid for most of your education.
We've learned nothing.

This is happening again , this is pathetic … any fraternity that kills their frat members should be terminated and tried in a court of law rather than a suspension or a probation

Many students join because their Dads were members. I don't understand why they would want their sons to experience torture.

I would never pay for my kids to go to school anywhere in California to start with.
Teachers with bike locks, teachers teaching socialism and communism, instead of what they should be. And teachers that lead antifa gangs! To many crazies are running that state and the schools.

Did they shut down the football team too? If they didn't shut down ALL student organizations, this discrimination should not be tolerated. Shut down the fraternity responsible, but shutting down ALL of them is BS. You can't punish someone for something they had nothing to do with.

If you're wondering what's the difference between SDSU and UCSD, this right here is the difference. RIP young man. Fraternity culture is so toxic and counterintuitive to academia. I hear so many negative things about SDSU parties and frat culture. The school needs to seriously reevaluate their priorities, and monitor or ban these frats.
