Former Penn State student blames school for hazing death

Former Penn State student blames school for hazing death

(Patrick Carns via AP, FILE). Prosecutors say they did nothing to help Piazza.

Timothy Piazza, a 19-year-old engineering student from Lebanon, New Jersey, died less than two days after he fell and hit his head several times during a pledge acceptance ceremony at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house in February. "They looked away", Kline said. "They had all the intent to feed these young men lethal doses of alcohol - to bring them to alcohol poisoning levels".

"They killed him", he said of the fraternity members.

"They said he had a non-recoverable brain injury", Jim Piazza said, recalling the moment he learned his son wasn't going to survive.

Jonah Neuman, 19, faces charges for aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter, simple assault, reckless endangerment, hazing, disorderly conduct and alcohol-related charges. Drew Pinsky will join us and talk about that tragedy at Penn state.

Piazza's mother, Evelyn, said her grief has worsened the more she's learned about what happened to her son. He doesn't make it, and instead falls headfirst once more into an iron railing.

Piazza's brother, Mike Piazza, said he warned his younger brother to "keep his wits about him" if he made a decision to pledge with a fraternity. The eight students have also been charged with involuntary manslaughter, which is a misdemeanor that could add 2.5 to 5 years to their sentences if they are found guilty, reports FOX 6 Now. They let us go in and see him. "Knowing that your son suffered the way he did over such a long period of time, and died a very slow and very painful death, frankly, it's haunting".

The "juiced-up" Android app has been "testing positive for speed and power, again and again", it continues. But Sportsbet, based in Australia, stands behind its advertising campaign, according to the Guardian .

Now details of what that grand jury heard are being released.

Following the charges against the 18 former members of Beta Theta Pi, among those questions was whether or not the charged seniors would be allowed to graduate.

Piazza apparently fell down the steps again early the next morning but was not discovered until about 10 a.m.

Call 911 At one point one of the new fraternity members panics and urges someone to call 911 but is told to leave. The culture of unsafe excessive drinking is causing problems at schools across the country.Perhaps the next time schools are trying to raise awareness about alcohol abuse or the need to put an end to hazing, they should show students excerpts from the surveillance video at Beta Theta Pi the night Tim Piazza died.

The Piazzas noted that no one representing the university of the fraternity attended their son's wake or funeral services.

Neither parent would say whether the fraternity members involved should have to serve jail time. Though one of the attorneys is arguing that it is wrong to simply assume that the Pennsylvania State University students could tell the difference between Piazza being extremely intoxicated and having a life-threatening head injury, reports NJ Advanced Media. "That's not up to us to decide". "At the end of the day, this was planned and orchestrated and I think they all need to be held accountable". "As Penn State President Barron indicated in a recent blog post, the positives provided by the Greek-life community are worth protecting - but in order for that to occur, change is needed".
