YOUR TURN: Reaction to death due to hazing incident

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Jack Abele.

Abele sent us an email in response to our commentary about the hazing death of LSU freshman Max Gruver. Abele knows a lot about the topic because his own son died as a freshman during a hazing incident in Nevada last year. In his words:

A blood alcohol concentration between .25 and .30 is considered alcohol poisoning. Max Gruver had a reported BAC of .495 resulting in death. He was fed shot after shot by a group of older kids each time he incorrectly answered a question. Had they fed him small amounts of arsenic after each incorrect answer would people react differently to the news? The result would be the same. Is this sick behavior - hazing and alcohol poisoning - any less sinister?

That’s Jack Abele’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
