From The Atlantic:

What’s the Difference Between a Frat and a Gang?

They’re both blamed for predisposing their members to violent acts, but they’ve sparked radically different public-policy responses.


… The fraternity may be as frequently violent as the “savage gang MS-13,” as President Donald Trump called it in his State of the Union Address in January to spook fearful Americans into tough immigration policies. But Americans stereotype the gang and fraternity differently and treat them differently and rationalize their violence differently and police them differently. What if Americans looked at them similarly? What if Americans treated them similarly? What if Americans treated their victims similarly?

When will Haven Monahan finally face justice? Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg [Email him] with his ace newshound’s nose for the truth, demands to know!

I’m looking forward to next month’s Atlantic article:

What’s the Difference Between the Los Angeles Country Club and the Gestapo? Not Much!
