Police: Student willingly had his buttocks branded
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (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.

This actually kinda common in fraternities... I'll pass...

May seem like a stupid question, but how does one get branded WITHOUT getting burned? Sometimes I think news reporters are some of the stupidest things around.

Branding is something of a cult thing. Just like tattoos.

Branding - Scarification - Tattooing all date back to early Man/prehistory.

Branding can be done without heat by using extreme cold - I think they use liquid nitrogen.

Actually, tattooing IS a cult thing. It started as a way to separate a particular individual from "the herd" by ornamentation of the body. Only those who were inclined that way had it done. That is still the defining reason for getting a tattoo. which makes it a "cult" thing.

Then there are the Maori who use tribal tattoos to indicate status. Again, a "cult thing" (cult being short for "culture" or "cultural.")
So, certainly tattoos are a "cult" thing. The fact that having a tattoo transcends social standing these days doesn't change the fact that the people who have them ALL believe in the same standards regarding the human body.
BTW the same can be said for piercings. In some societies, piercing the ears is disgusting while piercing the nose or lips is perfectly fine and in other circles ANY piercing is not to be done. This is the epitome of "cult." You either believe in the underlying body mod or you don't. And non-believers are always "outside" the group.

Branding is suppose to burn. Should be done every spring, along with ear marking and castration.

Many african american fraternities use branding. I guess these european americans didn't know how to do it correctly...
