Hazing: Fraternity Right of Passage or Federal Offense?


This week on For the Defense, we shift gears from our regular political discussion to take a closer look at hazing—and given the death of Collin Wiant, it’s easy to see why. Since Collin’s death last year, nine people have been indicted on criminal charges connected to his death. It’s become one of the largest criminal hazing cases in U.S. history, and it begs the questions: Are fraternity and sorority cultures safe? Are they beneficial for the members in them? Tune in for answers to these questions and more on this week’s episode.
