After members of a University of Florida fraternity spat and insulted a group of disabled veterans at Panama City Beach resort during this year’s spring break festivities, it makes you think about how far down the gutter society has really gone.
The closing of Zeta Beta Tau’s fraternity comes a week after the school suspended the fraternity, which expelled three of its members after finding out about their inappropriate behavior. The school previously said it was charging the fraternity with obscene, behavior, public intoxication, theft, causing physical or other harm and damage to property.
The fraternity’s Florida chapter has 128 active members. The organization was founded in New York City in 1898 as a fraternity for Jewish students, who at the time were not allowed into other Greek organizations. The national organization agreed to the closure.
The university was rightly disgusted by the actions of the students, who were said to have been urinating on U.S. flags and verbally abusing veterans, and expelled several of them, before closing down the fraternity on campus.
Where are the parents of these kids?
Regardless of whether these kids are of legal age and responsible for their actions, the true root case of their behavior starts at home.
It’s obvious that those kids involved in this incident in Panama City, Florida, would have known better not to carry on like they did, if they had the proper guidance from their parents.
