Police respond to animal cruelty complaint at KU fraternity

Nobody cares how long Beta Theta Pi Kansas Chapter has been partaking in this ritual. If anything, the fact that they have done this more than fifty times just makes them guilty of more than fifty accounts of cruel murders of innocent turkeys. Being the “best fraternity in the country” is not an accomplishment. All that means to people that are not in Greek houses is that they have gotten caught misbehaving less than other fraternities. Leading the campus in grades and fundraising does not excuse them from acting like imbeciles when they get drunk. Nobody cares that they don’t allow women upstairs. Nobody cares how often members of Beta Theta Pi at the University of Kansas party. You don’t have to be a doctor or lawyer to be successful. The issue at hand is that they committed a crime. None of your points excuse them from that. The people involved in this “Turkey Pull” deserve appropriate punishments, no matter how rich and white they may be.
