IFC, PHC create two phase plan

first_imgThe Panhellenic and Interfraternity councils devised a two-phase action plan Tuesday night to address the recent issues within the Greek community.Pat Lauer, the president of IFC, said IFC and PHC created the plan to educate individual chapter members about the severity and ramifications of  their actions.The plan was created at a meeting held in response to the obscene email that spread virally after being sent on the Kappa Sigma listserv and the photos that surfaced Saturday of a Kappa Sigma member appearing to have sex on the roof of Waite Phillips Hall.In the short term, IFC and PHC have decided to work with the Women’s Student Assembly and Center for Women and Men to plan initiatives for the rest of the semester. The councils are also requiring 50 percent of each chapter’s members to attend Take Back the Night, an event that raises awareness of domestic violence issues.“This is something we hope to take a huge part of, not only this year, but in the coming years,” Lauer wrote in an email. “We are excited to work with these organizations because we feel that these partnerships can go a long way in educating our individual members in how to best incorporate themselves into the greater university community.”Long term, IFC and PHC plan to use social media to educate new members about the “importance of maintaining positive social images.”The councils will also aim to better hold individuals accountable for their actions and to impress upon members the effects of their decisions.last_img read more

He began to indiscriminately fire several rounds in the air.Interviews conducted with residents in the Sand Reef area revealed that they panicked, since numerous shots were fired.According to information received, the Police arrived promptly on the scene and the suspect began firing in their direction. For hours he resisted Police arrest. The Police were then required to use necessary force and opened fire on the suspect. However, the shots from the Police did not injure him. After three hours of chaos, the Police finally managed to arrest Benjamin.During his arrest, the suspect received a laceration to his lip. It was reported that the suspect appeared to be under the influence of drugs, hence the reason for his unusual behaviour.The shotgun is presently lodged at the Police station and Benjamin will soon face the necessary charges.Information received also revealed that on many occasions, Benjamin would ask to borrow his father’s gun to shoot birds at the backdam and upon his father’s refusal, an argument would often ensue with Benjamin reportedly threatening him.According to villagers, the sudden onslaught of gunshots had many of them scared and lying for hours on the ground, fearful for their lives.One villager related that she was so afraid, she thought that she would have died, having heard the countless gun shots that were fired.last_img read more
