Chi Phi (UGA) suspended over nude Photographs

http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/met...10metfrat.html

University of Georgia officials suspended the Chi Phi fraternity indefinitely Friday after pledges to the group flashed pictures of nude black women to passersby on campus.

The fraternity was barred from holding its traditional new member induction ceremony this weekend or any other social event until an investigation is complete.

According to campus police, seven university students and a visitor to campus photographed people's reactions as they showed them photos from a pornographic magazine that features black women.

The men told police that they didn't warn people about the content of the photos before they showed them, according to the campus police report.

Chi Phi President Matthew Hughes says that the chapter is "embarrassed" about the incident, which he said was not sanctioned by the fraternity. He declined to say why the students showed the pictures.

The fraternity is cooperating with the university on the investigation, he said.

Hughes said, "We are trying our best to go down the right path."

The university's anti-harrassment policy defines sexual harassment to include "the inappropriate display of sexually explicit pictures, text, printed materials or objects that do not serve an academic purpose."

In 1999, Chi Phi was suspended for allegedly providing alcohol to a 19-year-old pledge. The following year, the fraternity was cleared on hazing accusations from visiting Georgia Tech pledges.

You're right, Tom. I guess stupidity knows no bounds.
