First testimony in water-hazing trial

The victim testified yesterday in the trial of Alpha Phi Alpha members who hazed a pledge in 2003 by forcing him to drink gallons of water while enduring physical and verbal abuse. Result: a 10-day coma and permanent brain damage.

Here's the DMN's take on what's happened so far.

I first heard this story on Muse in the News on The Ticket, during my morning commute. Didn't hear any more of it till you mentioned it. I wondered what had happened to those guys. Thanks for the link.

. . so I'm guessing this fraternity no longer exists at the campus now?

I wonder if one of the problems in reporting this is that it is a "black" fraternity at a majority white university and that all of the particpants appear to be black.

How should a white reporter report on an event where all of the participants are black?

My answer to anonymous above would be "the same way he would if all of the participants were white."
