    Do you not get that it's one and the same??

    yeah. nail them to the wall... that way, the next time an incident like this comes up the "buddies" will just leave him where he falls or dump him in the street.

    It's standard freshman behavior. They are not trying to kill the guy, there was no attempted suicide. It was freshmen doing what freshmen across the country do. At least this time they got the kid to a hospital.

    That's already done. Remember Samantha Spady? What these kids did was actually above and beyond what is normally done, and they got their friend to the hospital. Now if this trend continues it will have designated drivers and controlled, reasoned drinking.

    yeah, they were just exercising their right under the 5th not to incriminate themselves.

    These things happen.

    I seem to remember a few years back we were partying in Vegas when one of our group got a little out of hand (found him running up Las Vegas Blvd at 5:30am naked as a jaybird). We piled him into the van and hustled him back to AZ so that if he had to get medical care it would still be in state since he was on probation.

    kind of agree with here. In my day he probably would have been put to bed and let him "sleep it off."
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    Kids freak out and don't make rational choices all the time. I don't think it was so much some conscientious 5th amendment sort of thing as much as they freaked out about getting caught and expulsion and parental and legal reprisal whirled through their heads and they did the "best" they could while hoping that they don't face further repercussions for their actions.

Fraternities and sororities are not the cornerstone of all that is evil in the world despite what some of you want to say.
    As a former fraternity President, I laugh at your defense of the Greek system as a whole. There are a lot of bad seeds out there.

    Thank goodness they had post-it notes. Imagine if they just had a stapler!

    In some states, women who just gave birth can leave the child at a hospital with no repercussions. Situations could be comparable.
