Florida fraternity censured, loses national charter over Facebook posts

SigEp is not the only fraternity having trouble with chapters in Florida. The Pi Kappa Alpha chapter at FIU was suspended when information from a "private" facebook page was made public. The guy are idiots for doing the things they talked about and doubly so for posting it.

Remember - nothing you put online is private. Think it can't happen to you? These guy probably thought so too.

It was “Animal House” -- Facebook style.

A Florida fraternity reportedly has been censured for maintaining a “private” Facebook page where members allegedly posted, among other things, where to buy and sell drugs, photos of topless college women, anti-gay slurs, alluded to hazing, and even suggested a strategy for turning the Boston Marathon bombing into “excellent publicity.”

The Miami Herald reports Florida International University ordered its Pi Kappa Alpha chapter, or Pike, to cease all meetings and events after someone anonymously emailed screenshots of about 70 posts from the private page to various media outlets and university officials.

The fraternity also lost its charter from the national organization.

Pike’s national Executive Vice President Justin Buck called the behavior of FIU’s chapter “disgraceful, offensive and indefensible,” in a written statement, according to the paper.

“Anyone have a connect for coke. Not me, a friend wants, lol,” one group member reportedly wrote on the “private” page, while another post seemingly concerns a supply of the prescription drug, Adderall: “30mg of addy 10 starting tomorrow. 15 for non brothers.”
