Northwestern University has a bit of a scandal going on... someone took photos of a hazing ritual involving the women's soccer team, and the photos are posted on the Internet. You can imagine that the school would imediately crack down on hazing and other outrageous student conduct.
Well, not quite. Instead, they are re-evaluating their policy
on posting pictures to Facebook, MySpace, and other community sites.
Huh? So it's more important to crack down on documentation of hazing than on the hazing itself? I would think that the school should do just the opposite: they should increase the severity of punishment for hazing and drinking, and ENCOURAGE the posting of violations to the Internet. They should tell everyone that they should assume somoene is taking pictures, those pictures will get posted, and if you're publicly outed, you're going to be in deep trouble. They might even give every student a digital camera...
Now THAT would have a chilling effect on drinking and hazing.
