Now... i dont know if you are familiar with the term "hazing", but there was a lot of it. A LOT. Countless bottles and cases of beer they forced us to drink in a certain amount of time and several times they would call us out to the house at 2 - 3 AM, strip us of our clothes, and force us to do calisthenics while electric shocking us in various parts of our bodies. the night before my PFA, as they knew I was in ROTC and had a big test tomorrow, they made us wear this weird padding then bear crawl on broken glass, causing cuts on my torso. They would line us up and shoot us at point blank range with paintball guns while we yelled the fraternities creed, vision, and colors in the name of brotherhood. one time they even dragged me out of my bed, blindfolded me, and threw me in the back of a truck, put a bulletproof vest on me and "shot" me with a pistol.. i later learned that it was just the sounds of a firecracker but I was screaming and crying so hard I could not tell honestly what had happened.
SO... during our final week (hell week), they subjected us to even MORE things that I would not like to say, but I ended up in a park at 4 AM near campus, and they had us smoking weed at that time. and a police officer was conveniently doing a check up/patrol on the area. They noticed the smell of weed and had us written up as we were all underage. I havent appeared in court yet to argue my case, I dont know if I am going to jail or not... to be honest I am just so scared (i havent told my parents about this or anything) but I was wondering what this meant for my career in the military.
What the Hell kind of Fraternity is this that you're pledging. It's hard to imagine that the type of Hazing you're describing has occurred under the radar of the university, this is the type of thing that ends up on CNN. If what you said actually happened some of these members could face charges.
I can't for the life of me think of one reason anyone would have stayed with this Fraternity after just one of the things you described happened. In a previous post you stated you were going to UT Austin, is this something that happens in Fraternities at UT, other then the one you pledged, if so then something needs to be done. What you described sounds like something out of a bad 80's movie.
As far as being forced to smoke weed because they would whip you with a belt if you didn't, that's just plain crap. Getting up, walking away, and telling them to go to Hell would have been the option I would hope any "Good Kid" would have chose.
This type of hazing only continues because people put up with it. We all make mistakes, and you made many. Now you have to find a way to move on, the military will most likely not be a path open to you anymore. I hope to God you have cut ties with this Fraternity.
Now with all that said, the skeptic in me would normally brush off a post like this as trolling for comments because it is almost too far over the top, and made by someone that has only posted 3 times. but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and just shake my head that something like this still goes on at some Fraternities, and there are those that put up with it.
