Florida International University has announced that they have suspended Pi Kappa Alpha for posting the following in a private Facebook group: nude photographs of different girls from FIU without their consent, evidence of rampant drug use and illegal distribution, accounts of hazing, accounts of cheating on exams. A police investigation is reportedly underway.
From Miami New Times:
Photos of the Facebook posts became public on Tuesday, when someone — it isn’t clear who or why — sent them to school officials and the presidents of other FIU fraternities and sororities in an email titled “fiu pikes caught hazing and more.” They were also sent to New Times.
The email contained nearly 70 screenshots pulled from Pi Kappa Alpha’s “active page,” a website used like a message board for frat brothers. The fraternity has reportedly deleted the page since then.
Below are some of the screen captures. Take it all in. There’s some pretty damning stuff in here.
The Pike national office issued the following statement:
“The International Fraternity had no previous knowledge of this Facebook group and was informed of its existence on Tuesday, August 20, 2013. The International Fraternity has been assured of the chapter’s full compliance with the temporary suspension and subsequent investigation.”
Translation: I can’t believe we let these idiots slip through the cracks.
