Felony hazing? So a frat pledge got his ass spanked by a wooden paddle (the article fails to mention the extent of his 'injuries'), and these guys are now convicted felons?

It does say that he passed out.

The kid had internal injuries that required surgery. He had to leave school because of it.

True, which indicates pretty significant injuries. Also, a careful reading of the article indicates that this person was hit with a wooden cane, not a wooden paddle. Big difference.

As a reminder, caning is what happened to that fellow in Singapore a few years back after he was convicted of vandalism. It is not pretty.

I won't post the pictures here, because they are not for the faint of heart, but if anyone is interested in seeing the results of a caning, go here:

And the hazing was done by a CANE - not a paddle. Paddles spread out the impact to a flat surface. Caning is like WHIPPING.
