After Timothy Piazza’s death, Penn State’s Interfraternity Council admitted to his parents that his agonizing demise rested squarely on Beta Theta Pi, whose brothers lacked the humanity to get him medical help.
“The fraternity experience failed your son,” the student-led board said in a statement about the Gitmo-quality hazing of Piazza on Feb. 2 at Beta Theta Pi (whose motto, ironically, is "men of principle").
"Failed” sounds so much more delicate than “killed,” doesn’t it?
But was it only the brothers who “failed” Piazza? Where were the sisters — specifically, members of Trilogy, a female campus organization, who participated in the “social” hosted by Beta Theta Pi at the frat house on the night Piazza drank himself into a stupor?
He fell multiple times, fractured his skull, lacerated his spleen, and died. Because that's what a 0.36 blood-alcohol level will do to you.
