LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - The two college students who provoked outrage by stealing, killing and cooking a fish from a campus pond -- all while being filmed for the MTV series "Fraternity Life" -- have been sentenced for their misdemeanor crimes. Casey Loop and Matthew Cox will have to perform 200 and 300 hours of community service, respectively, for their role in the theft, death and grilling of Goldie, an 18-inch koi filched from a pond last year at the University of California-Santa Cruz. They were also ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and pay $500 each in restitution to the university. The two former members of Delta Omega Chi at UC-Santa Cruz pleaded no contest last month to misdemeanor charges of grand theft and vandalism. Judge Jeff Almquist handed down their sentences Friday (April 16), the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Although MTV never showed footage of the fishnapping on "Fraternity Life" and wasn't directly involved in the caper, Almquist had some harsh words for the network in making his ruling. "It's clear that these were a bunch of guys playing to the TV sets," Almquist says. "This act offended the entire community." The theft of the koi, named Goldie, in May 2003 provoked strong feelings on the UC-Santa Cruz campus and ultimately led to Delta Omega Chi being barred from campus. At the sentencing hearing, prosecutor Gretchen Brock showed unaired footage of Loop holding Goldie over his head as he returned to the Delta Omega Chi house and of Cox killing Goldie by bludgeoning it with a beer bottle. Loop's lawyer, Paul Meltzer, portrays the act as a mix of his client being drunk and wanting to play for the cameras. "Some people do really stupid things with a camera trained on them," Meltzer says, "and I think Mr. Loop is one of those people." more info http://www.realitytvworld.com/index/articles/story.php?s=1290

In my opinion, I feel it is a disadvantage for the black Greek Life. MTV shows aspects of the white greek life. A reality show about the black greek life would be beneficial and logical for the black college students.

A black greek reality show?? Come on now...come on buddy. You and I both know damn well that a reality show about black greeks (a pledge process???) would be nothing but a picture of a house, woods and dorm rooms of people sleeping. Ratings would plumit and camera men would be sleep by the time stuff actually popped off, confessionals would be pledgees sleeping or sneaking food. I didnt even see homeboy from College Hill doing his thing and he just crossed last semester!!!! That's the closest you'll ever get to witnessing a D9 process. ROO
^^^Cosign there really would not be enough footage to actually put a season, hell a show, together if "they" did a show about a D9 org.

Hate to break it to ya... but this will NEVER HAPPEN! These shows to me are RIDICULOUS!! They go from rush, though the process, and beyond with these white frats and sororities. You will NEVER get that from a BGLO. That's puttin family business out for all to know and see. That's just not how we operate. Like Kanye said "if you say u ain't did it, then you ain't did it. And if you did, then that's FAMILY BUSINESS."
