In fraternities are right in the military and even in professional so it's definitely widespread problem. In divers gotten a radio wanna things you do the rookies is you know they get this control board that we use. And this that you changed the settings on it. So that when a guy leaves only want girl when he walked back in and silent anything they have dad there than they start pressing buttons is it. At random and they really do mess up DSM the to me that's not hurting anybody that's kind of like. A rookie kind initiation that doesn't involve any. It touching nor putting anybody in danger is that's different than hazing ranked. I would today. Not really and now that. The slippery slope because a lot of people and what is the secret mission should I'm looking. The man stagnation. Especially when your talking about and you're talking about that. We're developing me ask the heavy alcoholic. When. Painting and a lighter arm but he's been our crew. Com public need there this study showed that on it's much much more like more injured Haitian happened and the feed is given a green. For hello this game but. That is where our. While and that's the first question Natalie is how idea. Draw a line between arm was practical joke. And hazing eager sane they're really isn't any. The legal and we certainly troops school policy template everybody should draw a line where they think that they Ichiro. When it gets the her lines and to go back. And you know when it's in the news intently. You see Alex you patient temple Greek my dorm clearly being moved that line and B how they're trying to react to hit it in eight.

Emotional harm as well physical so clearly they're physical hazing Eric are quite a year. Ecological heat. So. There's a group dynamic that comes in the play here is they're on the way a Drupal do things and maybe one person would not. And that sort of human nature itself I'm from that site called group think. Or bystander. Effect. Where you at the curtain now right in and at that moral line. When your ethnic groups and everybody's doing it it's much more likely the column with a group dynamic entity that is shocking news back.

So Emily before we went to the break I was asking you from the standpoint of I guess of fraternities and sororities are bands or whatever where does that instinct come to. Hurt somebody did tase them and why is it that people put up with a. And I think I'm thinking you can actually talk about come pretty bad debt that you experience. There. Our mode.
