from the frat's-not-ok dept
When we typically do posts about dumb criminals intersecting with the internet, we’re strangely usually talking about adults. Sure, you get people stupidly thinking Twitter is a go-to source for finding drugs, but those people are working professionals (or at least, were). Additionally, that guy who thought the computer he yoinked from a church would be the perfect machine on which to watch porn? Adult.
But this story is different, because it involves students at a higher education institution, namely Florida International University, where a fraternity apparently thought that combining the drugs and nudity angle of previous stories on their Facebook page was a good idea.
Florida International University announced today it was suspending its Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity over Facebook posts apparently showing rampant drug dealing by frat brothers on campus. The posts, obtained by Riptide, also show evidence of hazing, cheating on exams, and creep shots of naked women shared among the “Pike” frat brothers.
Now, I know fraternities have a reputation for being stupid, and my time in college did nothing to assuage me of that impression, but this goes to a level beyond dumb. Drug crimes for weed are one thing, but the type of stuff you get from the pharmaceutical companies is a whole different ballgame, as is dealing freaking cocaine. To think that it wouldn’t come back to bite your ass if you put up offers to sell these narcotics on the internet, under your own name, suggests to me both that you are painfully stupid and that FIU needs to take a serious look at their admissions department to ensure they aren’t customers of these idiots. Anyone dumb enough to do that certainly isn’t passing their Geology courses on the up and up.
Beyond that, posting pictures of nude girls? Now you’re entering a whole different territory, one that will be met with near universal condemnation for being not only misogynist assclowns, but opening the door to issues of underage girls or girls who didn’t consent to be photographed in the buff. Hell, even their fellow fraternities think they’re idiots.
“This is troubling for a number of reasons,” said one veteran member of the FIU Greek community who asked to remain anonymous. “They were apparently actively selling drugs to the Greek community and their own members. They were not even discreet about what they were doing. In fact, they refer to it on several occasions within the post as the ‘pike pharmacy.'”
I’m guessing these Pike pharmacists might need to get their information in order to apply to their hometown community college soon, assuming they don’t end up in jail.
