Hazing rituals have long been the norm on college and even middle and high school campuses.
Every year hazing is used by various sororities and fraternities to initiate new hopefuls into their organizations. There has also even been reports of hazing by other groups such as military, athletics, bands, camps, etc.
The hazing has gotten so bad that both male and female students are being injured, paralyzed and dying as a result and the perpetrators are getting away with a slap on the wrist as hazing is considered a misdemeanor at best.
There is currently a CHANGE petition to stop hazing as a 19 year old North Carolina college student was killed following a fraternity hazing incident. He died from his injuries in a field off campus, he was tackled multiple times and was severely injured from a traumatic brain injury.
In Georgia, another student was strapped to a chair, hosed down, sprayed down and even defecated on. He was dropped off at ER and basically left to die.

This reminds of gang initiation. I can’t even imagine how horrifying having a child die as a result of hazing has to be for the parents. There has to be more done to ensure the safety of students. There is no way school leadership should keep allowing these type of rituals to continue.
