FSU TKE Suspended After Recently Graduated Member Turns Them In For 2013 Hazing Activities

I have covered many hazing articles while writing for this website, way more than I ever expected to touch. The allegations associated with those articles ranged from ridiculously juvenile to truly criminal, but this one is different. Never before have I seen a chapter suspended three years after the alleged activities occurred, nor have I seen a chapter suspended for violations reported by a graduated member of the chapter.

On January 28, 2016, Florida State officials received a hazing report via their online reporting portal. The report took direct aim at the Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter and on February 3, 2016, the chapter was placed on interim suspension so an investigation could be conducted. Once the investigation was passed along to the campus police department, details began leaking.

From WCTV:

He reported such incidents as pledges having to participate in a drinking game called “Old South” in which they were made to act as slaves while serving drinks to members; being required to steal traffic cones and then clean them for hours; and being blindfolded and driven to Thomasville and Ocala where they were told to return to Tallahassee on their own without phones or wallets.

The cops tried to run with it, but were shot down by the DA who informed them that the moron who reported the activities three years later had waited too long, therefore, no criminal charges could be filed.

“Florida State University has worked diligently throughout its history to be an academic environment that values diversity and respects every student,” Thrasher said. “The actions taken by Student Affairs were strong and swift. Racist behavior demeans every one of us, and we will not permit it to represent this university.”

After taking the evidence from their investigation to the State Attorney’s Office, FSU Police learned that too much time had elapsed under state law to bring any criminal charges for misdemeanor hazing. However, per Florida State’s usual procedure, the police report was sent to the Dean of Students Office to determine possible violations of the Student Conduct Code, and that process is under way.

The investigation failed to prove that any of the alleged activities have continued on, but the current members are still going to have to suffer at least a short while longer while the university and TKE nationals provides some further training that will surely improve absolutely nothing.

    So the son of a bitch held a grudge for three years and waited until after he graduated to snitch?

    I can’t even begin to use enough profanity and slurs to describe how weak that is.

        You should see the fucking national page..theres not middle ground. Your either a normal cool kid who deserved his bid, took his hazing, and now he’s a brother FUCKING OR he lined up with one of the many goober chapters, didn’t get hazed, has a neck beard, and now he’s a fedora wearing, sword wielding, cringy protector of the bond and all that is good trying woo a fair maiden.

    This is why we can’t have nice things. If you’re going to wait to graduate, just leave it be.

      Are you still mad FSU ended your SEC national championship streak? I guess you’ve been holding a grudge for 3 years as well.
