Another student is dead.
Cris Anthony Mendez was suspected to have died because of hazing in this Inquirer report.
His death, suspected to be the result of hazing, cut short his Friendster run.
I have expressed before how pointless these fraternities are. I don’t give a crap whatever these so-called organizations claim to accomplish or contribute to society. We have countless other organizations that do the same thing, but do not get their members pointlessly killed.
The concept of undergoing initiation to prove commitment to the group still eludes me. What eludes me more is the point of their continuous existence right within school premises. I understand that we have the right to convene and express our ideologies. But when people die senselessly in the process of joining, then we have a problem. A big one.
Again, the Anti-Hazing law seems to bear no meaning to these idiots who continue to engage in these illegal activities of fraternities.
