CEMETERY RITUAL LANDS USC-UPSTATE STUDENT IN JAIL

By FITSNEWS || Another Palmetto State chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity has landed in hot water …

Less than 48 hours after the fraternity’s Clemson University chapter sparked a racial firestorm with its controversial gangster-themed “Cripmas” party, the chapter at the University of South Carolina-Upstate saw one of its members arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm.

The arrest took place in Spartanburg County following a “ritual” at Oakwood Cemetery – with 21-year-old Caleb Cooke getting pinched for unlawful carry.

According to WSPA TV 7 (CBS -Spartanburg, S.C.), a man identifying himself as the president of the USC-Upstate SAE told the arresting officer the students “were at the cemetery to perform a ritual where they bond and talk.”

Ummm … okay.

The officer asked whether any of them were carrying a firearm, at which point Cooke volunteered that he was carrying his father’s 9mm handgun – ostensibly to protect his brothers during their “ritual.”

Cooke has since been suspended by his fraternity indefinitely.

It’s been a rough week for SAE, which also suspended the leadership of its Clemson chapter after their “Cripmas” party was criticized by black students as being part of an alleged “culture of racism” at the school.

Fraternities have been under fire in South Carolina this year after the September death of 19-year-old Tucker Hipps – a Clemson student who died following unsupported fall from a bridge near the school.  Hipps’ death is still under investigation although it’s been alleged hazing may have played a role in his fall.

Can’t fault the frat kid from packing heat

Hell, everyone knows there are walking dead in cemeteries and only a headshot will keep them at bay

The only way a frat boy is getting some is by holding a gun to the head of a zombie to keep it quite while he does his business.

Rule #1: Don’t constantly look over shoulder when fleeing on foot, because you will inevitably trip and be eaten, axed to death, etc.

Good article in yesterday’s Spartanburg H/J on this fuck-up. Seems like Sig Ep can’t do wrong right lately
In my college days we called SAE the “Motor Oil” frat
As I posted on the “Cripsmas Party” article: Sig Ep is the poster child for “Animal House” – Sig Ep would take you in after every other frat turned you down.
There is a reason there is a Sig Ep chapter at USC-Spartanburg and not Wofford.
BTW, I REFUSE to use the school’s “rebranded” name; just like it will always be Spartanburg TEC as far as I’m concerned and NOT the milktoast it has become as the rebranded “Spartanburg Community College”
Again, I’m not a “Greek” BTW.

For Clarity: SAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) is not the same fraternity as “SigEp” (Sigma Phi Epsilon). The former are greasy sociopaths and the latter were considered okay guys before they dropped that kid off a bridge and then lawyered up. Suffice to say neither are going to be at Clemson much longer.

At the university I attended SAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) was referred to as “Sig Ep” I suppose because there was no Sigma Phi Epsilon as far as I remember.

And as i posted some of us called SAE the the “motor oil” frat.

Couldn’t they just have stayed at the frat house to do their homosexual experimentation? Gotta set the mood for the fresh meat, I suppose.

Frat boys who eventually become model fathers, leaders of the community, and pillars of society are bad – yet thugs and gang bangers are good. Boy our nation has flipped.

Maybe else where, but not in SC. The frat dudes I know are racist, drunk, pop pills, do coke and cheat on their wives. Those are the married fathers. Come down to Pawelys Island and hang with some these fine gentleman or are you one already. Get a fucking clue.

This is so gay on so many levels – I would think these kids should just go back to the school and kick their own ass.
