The article gives many, many examples of sports hazing over the years. They range from milder initations to extreme induction rites. In every case, police and court authorities became involved.
I thought they were all very interesting occurences, and some of them were absolutely wild. I believe that sometimes people go to far with their 'traditional rituals,' including performing crude sex-related acts and causing bodily harm to themselves. It seems like the seniors are taking revenge on their previous 'alphas' on their younger mates, maybe even making it worse and worse.
Should police get involved in these hazing rituals? Or do the initiatee's hold the power to keep these things from happening to them? Is it impossible to say no?
