The Penn State Way

Penn State frat brothers knew dying pledge needed serious help

The heartless Penn State University fraternity brothers facing involuntary manslaughter charges for not getting medical care for a pledge with toxic levels of alcohol in his system during a night of hazing knew for nearly 12 hours before he died he was “going to need help,” officials said Saturday.

“Tim Piazza might actually be a problem,” one brother wrote in a group text about the 19-year-old sophomore after the victim “ran the gauntlet” at Beta Theta Pi’s chapter house on Feb. 2 and was forced to chug vodka, beer and wine.

The brother sent the group text after finding Piazza at the bottom of the basement stairs.

“He fell 15 feet down a flight of stairs, hair-first,” the brother wrote at 11:53 p.m. “Going to need help."

But nobody called 911 for Piazza until about 10:45 a.m. the next day, officials said.

Same thing in the Sandusky case. The victims are the "problem"--for Penn State's image! Solution: don't tell anybody. That's the Penn State Way.
