Naked VicsKENMORE, WA – The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a hazing incident after a group of boys were found injured in a wooded area, victims of some gay-ass hazing ritual to gain admission to a school spirit group.

Police responding to a call about males yelling Monday night found 12 males, ages 16 to 18, in a large wooded area. Several of the boys were bent over a log and had open wounds from being struck with switches and other items. Medical personnel were called to the scene after police noticed several of the boys appeared to be suffering from hypothermia.

Seven juvenile males were identified as potential victims, and said they were part of an “unofficial hazing” process related to Inglemoor High School. They also said they did not want to cooperate in any police investigation into the incident. Five 18-year-old males were identified as potential suspects but have not been charged with any crimes at this time.

One of the juveniles, James Walvatne, said he was blindfolded and then brutally beaten. “They used PVC pipes, headless golf clubs, and flour and maple syrup. They peed on us and stuff,” said Walvatne, a junior at the school.

He and the other juveniles were a part of a school spirit group called the “Naked Viks,” a non-sanctioned group that cheers at the school’s football games. Monday night was part of their hazing.

The injured juveniles were treated at the scene and all of the young men were released to their parents, but the Sheriff’s Office said it will follow up and determine if charges will be filed against the older boys who took part in Monday night’s festivities.

The fact that none of the juveniles asked the older boys to stop beating them is part of the reason why charges against the older boys may be tough. Walvatne said he didn’t tell the other students to stop beating him because he wanted to be a part of the group. “It’s just tradition. I don’t think they should be in trouble that could just ruin their lives,” said Walvatne.

Inglemoor High School has now banned the Naked Viks at school or any school-related event because of this latest incident.

“Inglemoor High School and the Northshore School District have high standards for student behavior. We are deeply disturbed by the actions of these few individuals, which do not reflect the respect, pride and citizenship that the Inglemoor High School student community represents and values. Our thoughts are with the students who were injured and their families. School officials are fully cooperating with the police department in its investigation and are actively encouraging families to pursue charges,” said Leanna Albrecht, district communications director.

Students are not happy with the school’s decision, stating that the Naked Vics have been a long-standing tradition. The group seems to be really popular with the students, as one football player claimed he’d rather been a part of the Naked Vics than his football team. “Instead of football I would rather be a Naked Viking,” he said.

Reading the comments at the kirotv article have been enlightening. I really liked the following from an Inglemoor graduate:

“The naked viks are a bunch of Sally’s. Lets face it, even still to this day the most natural way to be popular in high school is to be a good athlete. Even if you dont try to be popular its just what happens in high school when you are good at a sport. The naked viks have always since day 1 of their founding been the kids who want to be popular but are not athletic or dont possess the self discipline or dedication to something like a sport. They want to be popular so bad but instead of just being a good nice caring person and letting people like you for you they want to be a part of something that makes them look like a bunch of morons and jackasses. There not “tough” kids even though they try and act like it. They think the school looks up to them and likes them when in reality everytime they run in the gym at an assembly everyone is laughing at them. But in their little group of 8 they are King Sh*t on turd island. ”
