YOUR TURN: Noose hazing incident

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where many people are writing about the so-called hazing incident involving the Wynne High School football team.

Several football players were expelled after being accused of tying a noose around the neck of an Afircan-American player.  Some of the people commenting think this incident goes beyond what could be considered hazing.

Here's what Stephani Hudgings had to say:

Hazing incidents normally do not involve just one victim. It's usually a group of "new" individuals. Why was only one boy targeted? Why would the students pick one black player and use the noose as their choice of "weapon?" I think the police should handle it, and the school should follow up with appropriate punishments. How does this not qualify for zero tolerance?

That's Stephani Hudgings' turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
