One more reason to blow Penn State off the map as teen killed during hazing
Nothing will get me fired up as Penn State with another young kid, Tim Piazza, involved in a hazing incident that saw him killed
Another terrible incident at a college that has seen way too many in the last 30 years. I have written at length about how much I hate this damn college now after growing up in the area. While I was a child, I looked up to the college, and If I stayed living there, I most likely would have strived to go to the college. The name that it had for itself was right up there with any great college that you could name. They had the prestige to pull kids into a terrible state to live. Penn state was one of the top schools, and now it’s just one of the most embarrassing places in these United States. The fall from the pedestal because of complete ignorance and thinking they were above the law seems to spring back up again in its fraternities. Now we have a reason to get rid of these forever. As a young kid, you shouldn’t have to go through anything like Tim Piazza. And I can say that this has probly almost happened to either my friends or me a few times, but we just are always lucky.
Now here is what happened to Tim:
On Feb. 2, Piazza and the other initiates to Beta Theta Pi had just run the gantlet, a series of stations where they had to chug wine, vodka and beer. But during the night, Piazza fell down a flight of stairs and injured his head.
After the frat brothers found him at the bottom of the stairs, one wrote on a group message that Piazza “might actually be a problem. He fell 15 feet down a flight of stairs, hair-first, going to need help.”
But they didn’t seek medical help for more than 12 hours, authorities concluded. Instead, they poured water on Piazza, slapped his face and put a backpack full of books on his back to keep him from rolling over.
While he was laying at the bottom of the stairs, he was twitching and throwing up all over. At the time he had a fractured skull and a lacerated spleen, for hours blood was seeping into his abdomen. In this whole time, there was only one pledge Cordell Davis who spoke up that he should be taken to the hospital. He was shot down by the rest saying that he didn’t know what he was talking. During this time, Tim Piazza managed to get to his feet where he fell again hit his head making the injury even worse.
Now we have eight fraternity members charged with involuntary manslaughter and others being charged with hazing aggravated and simple assault as well as alcohol-related violations and evidence tampering. The charges will never be enough for the Piazza family in this disgusting development.
The biggest kick in the dick was when the doctor told the Piazza family that if he had been brought to the hospital sooner, he would have survived.
Can we all finally be in agreement with this school? It needs just to be shut down. There is now a karma attached to this place. If I were a kid the last place, I would ever step foot in was Penn State. Now I’m hoping that everyone’s eyes are even more open to what kind of institution that is this school.
