I generally don’t like to place blame on the police too quickly. In fact, I normally like to refer to our fine men and women of the campus force as janitors, because they clean up all the shit-turds trying to stink up everyone’s days — an important job that someone has to do. In the case of Lehigh University’s Kappa Sigma, however, the campus police sound like real McAssholes. As of a decision handed down July 14, Kappa Sig is suspended from campus until at least July 2019 following a string of alcohol-related incidents.
From The Morning Call:
In February, a student was taken to a hospital and found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.22 after drinking at the fraternity, according to a blog run by Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs.
The next month, Kappa Sigma members lied about the identity of a member to police, who also detected an odor of alcohol on the breath of an underage member, the blog said.
On April 22, more than 40 students received citations for underage drinking. Another student required emergency medical assistance at an off-campus event hosted by the fraternity, the blog said.
Getting suspended after taking your friend to the hospital. CLASSIC.
It seriously perplexes me how universities can take hospital trips into consideration when deciding whether or not to suspend a fraternity. That’s like completely obliterating a dog with your car, taking it to the vet and then getting in trouble for driving. “No matter you tried to help him or her from dying, fuck you for being responsible and trying to save their lives” is essentially the message here.
And 40 citations for underage drinking? That’s some serious grit and determination from the police force. You know how much paperwork that is in the morning? At least 40 pages which is about 40 pages more work than most rent-a-cops have ever done above a high school level. My guess is the coppers weren’t interested in doing so much work, and there was more at play here.
Just another example of the suppressed fraternity guy being railroaded by the man.
