DKE Punishment Fair

To The Editor:

I would like to applaud the IFC JudComm for taking a tough stance against a group that failed to consider the consequences of violating IFC rules. The seriousness of DKE’s most recent infraction was compounded by the fact that the fraternity was already on probation for a previous violation and had even violated previous probations before. Currently there is a petition circulating which claims that DKE was punished too severely. However, given that lesser measures have not been effective, such a penalty was necessary. The only way for our living group communities to coexist safely and harmoniously is for all of them to follow MIT’s rules. When it comes to registering and regulating parties, everyone wants to have as much fun as they want without any restrictions. Nevertheless, things need to stay under control, especially when alcohol is present.
