UK Fraternity Pledge Set On Fire

"The Lexington Herald-Leader reported the closure and the UK chapter's suspension by the national SAE organization came after a member was wrapped in toilet paper, which was set of fire. Court documents showed 19-year-old fraternity member Sean P. Dunn of Hebron is charged with first-degree arson, first-degree wanton endangerment and evidence tampering."nky.cincinnati

This is the bull shit people have to go through to be in a fraternity?
This is just another reminder as to why I never rushed or had any intention of joining a fraternity.

What possible reason is there to pledge?
I'm not sure what he's going to get out this by being put on fire, besides 3rd degree burns.
So whats next, having something stuck up his ass. All for what, so he can get drunk and have everlasting friendships?
