The University of Florida’s Zeta Beta Tau Frat Under Investigation After Members Spit On Wounded Vets and Pissed on American Flag (Update: UF Suspends ZBT)

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA ZETA BETA TAU FRAT SPIT AT WOUNDED VETS AND URINATED ON AMERICAN FLAG …

The University of Florida’s Zeta Beta Tau frat is under investigation after it was reported that members of their fraternity spit on wounded veterans and their service dogs and urinated on American flags. WTF is wrong with kids these days? The incident occurred at Panama Beach, gee what a shocker, when Zeta Beta Tau students from UF and Emory University were in Panama City Beach for their spring formal and wounded vets and their families were in town as well as part of the Warrior Beach Retreat. Panama City, FL gets another black eye. Is there any semblance of decorum in this town anymore? The University of Florida and Emory University should be embarrassed and ashamed of the actions of there frats. Personally, I believe they should be booted off campus and eliminated. This kind of conduct should never be tolerated. The UF ZBT frat was already on probation prior to this disgusting act. Sorry, they need to be gone, they obviously serve no functional purpose and have such contempt for wounded American heroes that have defended America’s freedom’s, including theirs.

 

The University of Florida’s chapter of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity is under investigation after members spit on and took flags from wounded veterans.

Last weekend, Zeta Beta Tau students from UF and Emory University were in Panama City Beach for their spring formal. They were staying at the Laketown Wharf Resort where veterans were also staying for the Warrior Beach Retreat, according to Linda Cope, founder of the retreat.

For the past six years, the Warrior Beach Retreat has been hosted by Panama City Beach twice a year to bring in wounded veterans and their families.

Cope honors her son, Joshua, at the retreat — he lost both legs and his right hand after his vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Iraq, according to the retreat site.

Members of the University of Florida chapter of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity are under investigation after spitting on and taking flags from wounded veterans. The students and veterans were in Panama City Beach when the incident occurred.

Cope said Zeta Beta Tau students picked on the veterans, spit on them and their service dogs, and urinated on American flags.

“In all of my years, I’ve never seen such debauchery and disrespect,” Cope said.

Linda Cope then received an email apology from UF President W. Kent Fuchs, Executive Director of the National Zeta Beta Tau Laurence A. Bolotin, but nothing from Emory University.

“I want to make clear that I am deeply sorry for the affront that our students may have caused,” Fuchs wrote in the email. “I want to assure you that it is not representative of our students or our university, and we will make every effort to learn more, take appropriate action and prevent similar incidents from occurring again.”

“The University of Florida is extremely concerned about allegations, specifically of illegal behavior with our students,” Sikes said. “We’re taking this matter vary seriously and opened an investigation to determined what happened and what we need to do in response.”

Executive Director of the National Zeta Beta Tau Laurence A. Bolotin, a University of Florida graduate from 2001, also wrote to Cope, stating Emory, UF and the international headquarters are fully cooperating with investigations and both chapters have placed themselves under suspension.

UPDATE I: The University of Florida has Suspended ZBT.

The University of Florida suspended one of its fraternities on Friday after allegations that its members hurled drunken insults and spat at a group of disabled military veterans at a Panama City Beach resort.

The school said on Friday that it is charging the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity with obscene behavior, public intoxication, theft, causing physical or other harm, and damage to property.

The suspension came after the fraternity had already suspended operations itself and expelled three of its members after finding they had behaved inappropriately.

“I am personally offended and disappointed by the behavior that has been described to me,” Dave Kratzer, the school’s student affairs vice president and retired U.S. Army major general, said in a statement.

UPDATE II: Emory University claims their Frat were angels.

 

CBS46 News

 

Emory officials said they are investigating but so far there’s no evidence to implicate their students in the incident. Emory’s Zeta Beta Tau fraternity told CBS 46 in Atlanta they were shocked to learn of what they call “atrocious acts.”

But Cope told the station: “There were too many students from Emory for none of them to be involved. It is hard for me to believe that no Emory student was a part of this. This denial is a slap in the face of veterans.”

About 60 veterans who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan were also attending a retreat that has been held twice a year for the past six years at the resort. Cope started the event in honor of her son Joshua, who lost both legs in Baghdad in 2006 when a roadside bomb exploded under his Humvee.

One letter to Fuchs described students spitting on veterans, throwing beer bottles over a balcony and ripping flags off their cars.

Cope said hotel security got the situation under control and the fraternity members were evicted the next morning. The fraternity sent a letter of apology to Cope.

HATE CRIME: Three Black Men Arrested in Attack on White MetroLink Rider in St. Louis, MO

Three men have been arrested, a 21-year-old, a 15-year-old and another person is in custody, following the unprovoked assault on a MetroLink commuter in St. Louis. Mo. The incident occurred last week as a white man was minding his own business on his commute home when he was assaulted by two men who police say had made reference to Michael Brown, the teen who was killed at the hands of Ferguson police that began the fraudulent movement of “hands up, don’t shoot”. So in other words, these black men purposely, willfully and with full intention attacked and assaulted a white man because of this color. That sounds like a hate crime to me. Where is Attorney General Eric Holder running to this white commuters defense of his civil rights?

Don’t all lives matter?

VIDEO of ASSAULT

Police have three people in custody in an attack last week in which a MetroLink rider was beaten after one of several men asked him about the Michael Brown “situation.”

A police source confirmed Monday evening that a 21-year-old and a 15-year-old have been arrested and another person is in custody who is cooperating with the investigation.

A video posted to Facebook appears to show the attack March 23 on the 43-year-old man, and MetroLink released surveillance images of suspects.

Police said the victim, who is white, was punched and kicked by three black men, one of whom had made the reference to the teen killed in Ferguson by a police officer Aug. 9.

Just a note to the 3 arrested individuals … Officer Darren Wilson was never indicted by a grand jury in the shooting of the so-called Gentle Giant, store robbing punk Michael Wilson and Attorney General Eric Holder dropped all civil rights charges against him as well. Hands Up, Don’t Shoot never happened.

HATE CRIME: 43 Year Old White Man Assaulted on MetroLink Train in ST. Louis, MO by Black Man Over Michael Brown Question … No It was Over Black Hate

JUST CURIOUS … DO WHITE METROLINK PASSENGER LIVES MATTER … HANDS UP, DON’T PUNCH. 

A 43 year old white man, minding his own business on his commute home on a MetroLink train in ST. Louis, MO was attacked by a black man who the media would like you to believe was started because of the black man asking a Micahel Browm question. Sorry, that is the excuse. What caused this unprovoked assault of a white passenger was because of black hate. The death of Michael Brown and the made up and bogus “Hands up, don’t shoot” is just an excuse to attack and assault white people. At this point we know that Hands up, don’t shoot is a lie and never happened. But what did happen on a MetroLink train was the as assault of a white man. Where is Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Barack Obama running to his aid? Will Eric Holder press hate crime charges against these punks, I didn’t think so.

If it were three white kids beating up on a black guy the MSM would have made it a front page story and a national event. But its just a white guy minding his business, trying to get home from work. That that gets no play as a bunch of thugs hassle the guy, because they can.

CNN

The victim, 43, was commuting home when a young man in a red T-shirt and cap walked up to him. The victim asked not to be named in media reports.

The man asked to use the victim’s cell phone. He declined, and the young man sat down beside him.

“Then he asked me my opinion on the Michael Brown thing,” the victim told KMOV, “and I responded I was too tired to think about it right now.”

The suspect, in his 20s, stood up.

“The next thing I know, he sucker punches me right in the middle of my face,” the victim said. The video showed the suspect unleashing a barrage of punches at the head of the victim, who covered himself with his hand and forearms.

The two other men, also in their 20s, joined in, police said. As the train pulled into a station, a security guard saw part of the beating and alerted police.

The man in the red T-shirt could be seen on video kicking at the victim’s face before the train’s doors opened and the assailants ran out.

EXIT QUESTION: Hey Eric Holder, is the police department responsible for this as well? Is it those racist police that are to blame, or the racist blacks?

County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said Jeffrey Williams was charged with two counts of assault in the first degree, one count of firing a weapon from a vehicle, and thee counts of armed criminal action.

McCulloch said Williams admitted firing the shots, but said he was shooting at someone else.

“We’re not sure we buy that part of it,” McCulloch said, adding that the handgun used in the shooting has been recovered.

He said Williams was involved in the demonstration that was wrapping up when the incident took place. Williams, he said, was being held in lieu of $300,000 cash bail.

UPDATE III: Picture 20 year old Jeffrey Williams, individual with previous record who was on probation and in possession of a handgun. I am most certain he did not have a permit to carry a handgun, nor went through any of the hoop that we law-abiding citizens have to.

EPIC: Spring Break Police Officer Sgt. Bryan Bingham Arrests Two Punks MMA Style in What May Be One of Greatest Ever

BAD BOYS, BAD BOYS. WHAT YA GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU …

Check out the VIDEO below of Pinellas County Sheriff police officer, Sergeant Bryan Bingham, on St. Pete Beach as he deals with two out of control and unruly, white trash punks, Josh McMahan, 25, and Justin Lewis, 24. His arrest of these two thugs MMA style is epic and has gone viral. Back up never arrived for officer Bingham to deal with these two rowdy beach-goers thugs, so he was forced to deal with it alone. And deal with it he did. Both McMahan and Lewis were charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. And of course they got the beat down of their lives.

Bingham went on to say as he approached the scene he saw two groups of people fighting and he had very little time to decide on whether to call somebody and wait or try to keep other people from getting hurt. He said he decided to act instead of waiting.

“My main goal was to control that situation,” said Sgt. Bryan Bingham.

He said he saw Josh McMahan, 25, and Justin Lewis, 24, were the “main aggressors” in the group and he tried to get McMahan out of the situation and de-escalate it.

At that moment, McMahan allegedly spit in Bingham’s face, so he took him down. Minutes later, Lewis interfered and tried to stop Sgt. Bingham from doing his job, so the sergeant took him down.

What were these two idiots thinking in trying to mess with Sgt. Bryan Bingham, had they not noticed the guns on this officer, and I am not referring to one one in his holster. Sgt. Bryan Bingham may be in the wrong profession and might want to consider a future in MMA. He took these two fools on as he pressed his knee on one of their throats and wrestled the other to the grown, much to the cheers of the crowd. Maybe the best of all was when he put one of the punks in a sleeper hold and forced him to tap out.

At about that moment a bystander began videotaping the intense scene — and the now-viral clip shows Bingham calmly manhandling who Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri called a pair of “thugs.”

Bingham tried getting McMahan away from the fight to deescalate matters, grabbing him by the neck, throwing him to the sand and then using a jawline pressure-point technique to subdue him, Bay News 9 reported.

Gualtieri said McMahan then spit in Bingham’s face, so the deputy “took him to the ground.” The sheriff added that ”very few” in the crowd surrounding Bingham came to his aid.

What’s more, there was Lewis attempted to intervene — but his fate was similar, as Bingham easily overpowered him…

…and even used what appeared to be a sleeper hold until he was tapping Bingham’s shoulder for mercy.

EXIT QUESTION: Just curious, had the two thugs been black and this white officer did the exact same thing, would the race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson come out of the woodwork, would Barack Obama defended them and said they could have been his son and would Attorney General Eric Holder begun a DOJ investigation into how white police officers treat blacks differently?

Let this be a lesson, alcohol and arguing with your girlfriend is never a good mix. Especially, if you are the boyfriend of a Tulsa OK woman, Amber Ellis. She was arrested for maiming and assault with a dangerous weapon. As the story goes, the couple had been drinking and got into an argument on the walk home and continued to argue once they got home. The victim ultimately fell asleep, one might have to say passed out. He woke up to find his girlfriend trying to bite off his penis. YIKES!

Amber Ellis was arrested for maiming and assault with a dangerous weapon.

According to the police report, the victim said he and his girlfriend were out drinking and began arguing while walking home “about how needy she had become.”  The couple verbally fought in the apartment until the victim told police Ellis stormed off, slamming the bedroom door.

Police say the victim fell asleep on the couch only to wake up to find Ellis “biting his (penis) off.”

The victim told police he fought Ellis off but she hit him in the head with a laptop computer.

Guys, always be careful of crazy eyes.
