One big happy family

Better think twice before you apply to Penn State University (pictured).

No fewer than 18 males from the university are now facing a variety of criminal charges relating to the death of Timothy Piazza on 4 February this year.

He died after falling down some stairs several times, during a ‘ritual’ of one of the university’s ‘fraternity’ groups, Beta Theta Pi, a supposedly alcohol-free group. According to court documents the men actually spent a total of $1,179.30 on booze leading up to the night of Piazza’s death. They also operated a chat group titled “we fuck moms”.

Closed circuit TV cameras show a very drunk Piazza being carried up the stairs and being punched in the belly, while another fraternity member slaps him several times in the face.
