Poll: frat jerks cause $75,000 of damage to ski resort: should their parents be allowed to bail them out?
I’m no expert, but I think it’s going to cost a lot more than $75,000 to repair these damages. And that doesn’t even take into account the lost revenues from not being able to rent those rooms. The students who did this should be forced to pay for all of those costs, be expelled from the school, and have criminal charges filed against them.
I think their parents should be prohibited from paying for the damages. The students should have to work to pay for it.

Inside the Frat Party that Caused $75,000 of Damage at a Ski Resort
January 23, 2015
Students from the University of Michigan, including members from six fraternities and sororities, are accused of causing thousands of dollars’ worth of damages during a weekend stay at two northern Michigan ski resorts.
The students, which included members of the Sigma Alpha Mu, Pi Kappa Alpha and Chi Psi fraternities, as well as members of the Sigma Delta Tau, Alpha Phi and Delta Gamma sororities, are being accused by resort operators of trashing hotel rooms and hallways, including ripping off cabinet doors, destroying ceilings and rugs, and busting up tables, during a Jan. 17-18 weekend stay at the Treetops Resort and Spa in Gaylord, and the Boyne Highlands Resort in Harbor Springs.
This next paragraph is my favorite part of the article:
Despite the fraternity’s apology, [Treetops general manager Barry] Owens voiced his concerns. “They said they were going to make good on this, however they also said they would behave themselves… we have concerns about the integrity of their word.”
Mr. Owens is a wise man.
