    Police: Student willingly had his buttocks branded


    (AP)
    Breckenridge authorities said a Texas Christian University student who suffered burns when his peers branded his buttocks participated in the act willingly and no charges will be filed.

    Authorities said Thursday they made the decision not to pursue charges after reviewing statements from Amon Carter IV and a dozen TCU students.

    The Summit Daily News reported that Carter had Greek symbols from his fraternity and a sorority branded on his buttocks Jan. 8 during a trip to Breckenridge and needed surgery after suffering second-and third-degree burns.

    Investigators said what happened was not part of a fraternity initiation because Carter was already a group member.

    Carter is the great-grandson of Amon G. Carter, Sr., who founded the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Locally it is a little embarrassing for the family of Amon G Carter IV... his dad III is the one who hired private investigators to get to the bottom (no pun intended) of his son's idiotic behavior. There were reports of 30 or so students named in the report that was given to the Ft. Worth police. Ultimately IV stood up and announced (confirmed ) that this was all his own fault and heavy drinking/frat branding/and huge trust funds just don't mix.

    For a chuckle, google Amon Carter and see how much of TCU (and Ft Worth) that family owns...shame on IV.

    If it was a sorority, I would be interested.

    "All but one man tried.
    There at TCU,
    And they say he ran away.

    Branded, scorned as the one who ran.
    What do you do when you're branded, and you know you're a man."

    Plot Summary for
    "Branded" (1965) More at IMDbPro »

    "Branded" -- 1965
    In the 1880s Jason McCord travels the country trying to prove he's no coward. He needs to do this because the military career of this West point graduate came to an end when he was thrown out of the army after being accused of cowardice. Written by Ed Stephan

    In this Western series, Jason McCord, the only survivor of the Battle of Bitter Creek, is court-martialed and kicked out of the Army because of his alleged cowardice. Rather than demean the good name of the Army commander who was actually to blame for the massacre, McCord travels the Old West trying to restore his good name and reputation.

    The trick cut down sword made from his broken sword was neat.
