Marvin Reglos, San Beda Freshman Law Student killed in Hazing


Another life was lost due to frat-related hazing

It's been 21 years since the death of Leny Villa from hazing. He was an Ateneo Law student. Now a San Beda law student died from hazing. Note that these students came from reputable law schools. 

It is 2012 already! When will this frat-related hazing stop?
We condemn this unlawful and dreadful act of violence. We grieve over a life that has gone to waste because of the system of brotherhood that employs violence and intimidation as part of its ceremonies and practices. Stop this senseless killing! 

Marvin Reglos' father is a farmer from Isabela while his mother is an OFW in Korea. Marvin Reglos is an only son. He has two sisters. His father said they were working so hard to give Marvin a better life. Marvin's life ended in a senseless death.Condolence to Marvin Reglos' family, classmates and friends.
MANILA, Philippines – A San Beda College student died from injuries sustained in an alleged hazing incident.

The victim was identified on Tuesday morning by his relatives as 25-year-old Marvin Reglos, a freshman law student from San Beda College.

Marvin was brought on Sunday night to Unciano Medical Center by two men on board a red Honda City (WMF 174). He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.

Two suspects were arrested on the same night Marvin was rushed to the hospital. Alleged fraternity members Erick Edrosolano Castillo, 28; and Bodjie Amorin Yap, 24, were arrested after they went back to the hospital, supposedly to check on Marvin’s condition.

Marvin sustained severe bruises on several parts of his body. He supposedly sustained these bruises during his initiation rites in the unidentified fraternity.

The victim’s remains were later transferred to Antipolo Memorial Homes, where he was identified by his relatives. His father and mother have yet to arrive from Isabela and Korea, respectively.

Lorvie Reglos, Marvin’s sister, said her brother told her during their last conversation on February 18 that he was joining a fraternity.

“Sinabi na po niya sa akin na may fraternity siyang sasalihan. Sabi ko ‘ikaw magisip ka ng mabuti, malaki ka na. Alam mo na ang ginagawa mo,’” Lorvie said.

Lorvie said a classmate of Marvin has agreed to testify on the incident. Authorities have filed murder and hazing charges against the two.

Police said the case is strong against the suspects after they found from their cellphones several text messages, supposedly from other fraternity members, warning not to speak out on the matter or reveal the identities of those behind the alleged hazing.

Yes, Ann I cried when I watched the video. You could feel his pain. He is a farmer from Isabela. He travelled for 14 hours just to identify Marvin's remains in the funeral homes. This is so sad. I hope Justice will be served.

I don't get it. Joining a fraternity is supposed to be joining a brotherhood. Is hazing necessary to prove worthiness bilang member? Ilang beses na me namatay sa ganito. I don't think yung mga incidents na to will deter fraternities from hazing practices.

Iba naman kasi ang saysay ng mga fraternity nung araw kesa ngayon. Siguro ay may psychological roots din ito at nakatanim na rin sa kultura ng mga frats at soro, na tipong dahil pinagdaanan ng mga nauna ay dapat pagdaanan din ng mga nagnanais pumasok. Parang di nga naman patas. Sa kabilang banda, bagamat hindi rin ako sang-ayon sa ganitong practices nasa nagde2sisyon na rin yung sumali kung sa tingin nya ay makukuha nya ang tunay na samahan at pagkalinga sa ganitong 'kapatiran'. Ang sa akin lang, sana ay napag-isipan nya rin ng mabuti ang maaring mangyari lalo na't nakapagtrabaho na rin naman sya at mas malawak na ang pananaw sa mundo. Masakit ang nangyari pero sana ay maging leksyon na lang din sa iba.

i think the severity of hazing practices by these fraternities were adjusted accordingly. minsan may mga sumasali sa frat na sadyang ayaw ng "grupo" kaya ang kinahihinatnan ay mas malalang initiation. imposible kasi na lahat ng miyembro nito ay nagdaan sa pare-parehong "scale" ng hazing kagaya ng naranasan ng mga nabibiktima.

Ang sasabihin ng karamihan ng mga frat and soros, "ceremonial" lang ang hazing nila. Pwede ba?! Ilang tao na ang namatay dahil sa hazing. Grabe na yung culture of violence sa mga greek-letter societies na yan. Will it ever stop? I think the change has to come from within their system. Pero syempre yung may mga power to change it within their frats/soros wouldn't change it because sila ang nakakaexperience ng power.

^ceremonial? masaya sana kung yung ceremony eh mauuwi sa pagiging miyembro ng aplikante. eh ang dami na ngang instances na ang hazing na yan ay hindi sa induction ceremony nauuwi kundi sa pagpapalibing. nag-aral ako sa isang pamantasan na maraming fraternities, sororities, at organizations. ang hirap alisin ng hazing. pareho rin ng sakit ang public humiliation kapag sumasali ka sa mga ganito. tama, power tripping ang hazing.

this happens in many more schools in the Phillipines in this one.
Some of my friends go to a high school with 'recollection', a bunch of wierd things you must do or you lose your reputation for some reason.
Things include;
Shoving a cucumber in your anus-Probably the only issues
Being abandoned ten miles from school and told to return
And, swimming in a rather dark pool trying to find a coin.
