Weaponized Pillows

This is not the most distressing part of the NY Times story about the pillow fight at the US Military Academy:

The fight on the West Point campus turned bloody as some cadets swung pillowcases packed with hard objects, thought to be helmets, that split lips, broke at least one bone, dislocated shoulders and knocked cadets unconscious. The brawl at the publicly funded academy, where many of the Army’s top leaders are trained, left 30 cadets injured, including 24 with concussions, according to West Point.
This is:
So far no cadets have been punished, and the academy has no plans to end the annual tradition.
This is how we train Army officers to make good decisions and follow the rules?
