A troubling trend is plaguing school athletic programs across the country: hazing incidents involving sodomy. Outside the Lines has found more than 40 such incidents since 2011, including seven so far this year.
This caught my attention, because there has been an incident here with a local high school who is not having a football season this year after the team was found to be hazing during Summer camp. I don’t know how those kids didn’t know that what they were doing is wrong. It’s truly impossible to think that this stuff is appropriate. This isn’t even friendly pranks or harmless hazing, these are crimes being committed by kids in the name of team sports.
We can’t condone that.
