A shooting that killed one and injured 11 took place at a fraternity house of Youngstown State University in Ohio:
Authorities say a shooting at a fraternity house just north of the Youngstown State University campus killed one student and injured 11 people, including six students. Youngstown police Lt. Franklin Palmer says the shooting happened early Sunday and no arrests have been made. A statement from the school says officers are working to identify suspects, and the YSU police chief says there's no threat to the campus. Information on the identities and conditions of the injured was not immediately available. The university says the person killed and six of the injured are YSU students.
I never understood the point of fraternities and sororities. All you ever hear about them is hazing, weird rituals, heavy drinking, sexual harassment, racism, and other nasty stuff like that. I'm from a different culture, and the idea of fraternities never made any sense to me. Is there a reason to promote their existence on campuses at all? There was this horrible story about misogynist activities of a fraternity at Yale recently. At my own university, we had reports of racist activities at a frat party a couple of weeks ago. And now there was this shooting in Ohio.
Who needs fraternities if they cause all these problems?
