My thoughts can the willing file charges against these young men. they willingly agreeded to this initiation. Dumb on thier parts for sure. Hope they learned a lesson. I think none of these young guys should be was agreed upon before it happened.

I don't think anyone would actually agree to get put in intensive care...if they do then they deserve to be there...

I don't disagree with some sort of does help build comraderie but when when some dumbasses take it too far it becomes a crime

I agree with Cheryl because no one is making you subject yourself to being beaten, they were well aware of what it takes to become a member of Mellow Phi Fellow. Yes I do think that it got out of control but I don't think that the 7 young men should have to spend basically the rest of their young lives in jail because they acted in a band ritual. No I don't think that the 2 young men should've end up in the hospital but they had the choice to continue to endure the pain or to stop and they made the choice to endure the pain.
