ΣAM At OSU Suspended For Bar Fight

Before we delve into this story, I’d first like to point out that the news source I’m using is called Cleveland Jewish News. I don’t know why I find this so funny. I mean, do they only cover stories that affect Jewish folks? You think the editor sits in his office and fields pitches from his reporters all day and turns down interesting stories because the subjects were Christians? Or Muslims? Agnostics?

“Sir, there’s a shootout occurring right now down the street! Like a block away! People are dying!”

“They Jews?”

“Looks like a black guy and a few crazy white dudes. They don’t look very Jewish, sir. But there’s a massacre going on out there!”

“Pass.”

Anyway, the Cleveland Jewish News is reporting that the Sigma Alpha Mu chapter at Ohio State University — a Jewish fraternity, unsurprisingly — was placed on interim suspension in March by the university after one of their members participated in a bar fight with a member of another fraternity. The fraternity then attempted to cover up evidence of the fight because of an injury. During their interim suspension, the fraternity, known as “Sammy,” held an unplanned house party and planned a tailgate for this fall with a sorority, unknowingly violating their terms with the university. This led to further sanctions.

Suspensions, by both the university and national office, were handed down in July — one year by OSU, two to three by Sigma Alpha Mu. They brought the hammer down, pulled their recognition, and booted all the members from the house.

Seems excessive. I guess OSU doesn’t play around.
