Wheaton College players should repent

Success - Article sent! close

After reading about the five Wheaton College football players who face felony charges related to a hazing incident that occurred in 2016, I was sad and angry.

I was sad for what the victim of this alleged horrible incident suffered that day and ever since. I was angry that Wheaton College did not see this hazing event as grounds for expulsion for the five football players.

Now I wonder if the Wheaton College football program should be or will be punished by the NCAA for allowing this outrageously destructive behavior to have occurred and then allowing these players to continue playing on their team after the event. May justice be done. I hope and pray that the five players will repent and apologize to the victim of their horrific actions if they have not done so already.
