The names of nearly a dozen African American men have been entered into the criminal justice system's database in criminal acts connected to college hazing rituals at the University of Georgia.

It's not a shining day for Kappa Alpha Psi, an organization known as "Pretty Boys". This weekend the organization introduced itself to Georgia state television audiences after those Kappa Alpha Psi brothers turned themselves to police after a reportedly violent weekend.

It’s more than hard to understand why violence is not a hate crime and why violence is only a misdemeanor.The University of Georgia has to decide what to do with the Kappa Alpha Psi brothers. The org is suspended from the UGA campus, the accused have been hit with misdemeanor charges, and banishment may serve Zeta Iota's punishment.

Georgia, like much of the South has more white people than black people, even inside of its larger, populous urban areas. The local nightly news and its criminal suspect photos reflect the state's demographics.

Georgia, like much of the country, needs a boost to its college graduate population. UGA’s hazing incident is not an image the state or the country wants to present about students who attend its university or other universities in general.

Currently, eleven Kappa Alpha Psi members' faces are all over the evening news. Kappa Alpha Psi, Incorporated (Headquaraters in Corporate and federal bureaucracy) has thinking to do as well. The suspects: Austin Sinclair Johnson, Nicholas Brandon Pope, Acarre Patton, John Allen Wood, Raheem Joel Thompson, Jason Rasan Moffitt, Kourtland Wills Jones, Fakari Jalen Gresham, Robert Lee Ellis, Rictavious Jerome Bowens, aslo reported charged is Julian Deandre Hoyle.

The incident occured at Kappa House off-campus. The suspects are accused of punching with closed fists.
