Wheaton College needs to answer questions about football hazing case – Chicago Tribune

Something bad happened to a Wheaton College freshman on March 19, 2016, bad enough that five of the college’s football players have been charged with aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint.

It’s being described as a hazing incident — the freshman was also on the football team — and Wheaton College officials claim they investigated and dealt with it last year.

The innocence or guilt of the football players is now in the hands of the justice system. The young man who claims his teammates hauled him out of his dorm room, beat him and left him half-naked on a baseball field is now safe and attending college in Indiana.

But the administration at Wheaton College is facing a number of questions regarding how the incident was handled, and the answers I’m hearing are, at best, insufficient.
