Student with Peanut Allergy Smeared with Peanut Butter

Authorities are investigating a hazing incident at a Utah high school in which a student with a peanut allergy was smeared with peanut butter.
Ogden School District spokeswoman Donna Corby says nine cheerleaders at Ogden High School have been suspended after coating incoming squad members with condiments.
Corby says girls joining the squad were taken to a park May 4, supposedly to celebrate earning a spot as a cheerleader. Instead, senior cheerleaders blindfolded them and told them to do push-ups and sit-ups.
Corby says ketchup, mustard, peanut butter and pickle juice were thrown at the girls. The girls were then told to strip down to their underwear to get sprayed off.
Corby says the girl with the peanut allergy suffered a minor reaction.
The district's investigation is ongoing.

    This is bullying at its worse, these girls need to be charged with more than a slap on the hand, kick them off the cheerleading squad for the remainder of their school years and make sure this follows them on to college. I get so fed up with others saying hey they're just kids....... no they are a mennis to society.

    This is called Attempted Murder.

    It can be serious, but hazing has been happening for decades. Only with the introduction of technology has it been documented and publicized. i.e. the people doing the hazing is getting dumber and dumber in giving evidence that they did a crime. This is just as bad as the senior prank in Indy in which six kids asked a custodian and a board member for help in doing a controlled prank with post-it notes. The custodian agreed to it because the person trusted the students and did not want the prank to go to extreme. The reactions went overboard.

      When I was in high school, we had something called "Senior Hell Week." The last week of school we filled squirt guns with Tabasco sauce and got the freshmen good! Only a handful of wimps went and told the principal.

    I wonder at what point they thought it was funny. It seems they were out to humiliate these girls. Humiliating someone must be real funny. They need to get a grip on reality and grow up a little bit and not act like small children

    What is wrong with kids today? As a capt. of my high school sports teams, I never even thought of doing something like this. Instead, underclassman usually got stuck with hauling equipment. That girl could have had a serious medical emergency. Glad to see the school has suspended the girls resonsible but, I agree with ak, we need stronger and tougher laws on hazing.

        Benjamin, you are a bully. Calling someone a moron and overweight (!?) because you disagree with him? How ridiculous.

        This wasn't innocent indoctrination. That is hazing no question about it! Indoctrination would be to explain what is expected of them. And to call a person moron and overweight and out of touch shows what type of person you are!

    I agree. There are documented cases where children have died from hazing. It's not just kids having fun.

    And society accepts this sort of hazing. I am sure the girl who had this done to her is fine with it! Sad
