At about 3 p.m. on Friday, February 3, Tim Piazza, a sophomore at Penn
State University, arrived at Hershey Medical Center by helicopter.
Eighteen hours earlier, he had been in the kind of raging good health that
only teenagers enjoy. He was a handsome, redheaded kid with a shy smile, a
hometown girlfriend, and a family who loved him very much. Now he had a
lacerated spleen, an abdomen full of blood, and multiple traumatic brain
injuries. He had fallen down a flight of stairs during a hazing event at
his fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, but the members had waited nearly 12 hours
before calling 911, relenting only when their pledge looked fucking dead.
Tim underwent surgery shortly after arriving at Hershey, but it was too
late. He died early the next morning.

.

Every year or so brings another such death, another healthy young college
man a victim of hazing at the hands of one of the nations storied social
fraternities. And with each new death, the various stakeholders perform in
ways that are so ritualized, its almost as though they are completing the
second half of the same hazing rite that killed the boy.

.

The fraternity enters a period of reflection; it may appoint a blue-ribbon
panel. It will announce reforms that look significant to anyone outside
the system, but that are essentially cosmetic. Its most dramatic act will
be to shut down the chapter, and the house will stand empty for a time,
its legend growing ever more thrilling to students who walk past and talk
of a fraternity so off the chain that it killed a guy. In short order it
will recolonize on the campus, and in a few years the house will be back
in business.

.

The president of the college or university where the tragedy occurred will
make bold statements about ensuring there is never another fraternity
death at his institution. But he knowsor will soon discoverthat fraternity
executives do not serve at the pleasure of college presidents. He will be
forced into announcing his own set of limp reforms. He may ban the
fraternity from campus, but since the fraternity will have probably closed
the chapter already, he will be revealed as weak.

.

The media will feast on the story, which provides an excuse to pay an
unwarranted amount of attention to something viewers are always interested
in: the death of a relatively affluent white suburban kid. Because the
culprits are also relatively affluent white suburban kids, there is no
need to fear pandering to the racial bias that favors stories about this
type of victim. The story is ultimately about the callousness and even
cruelty of white men.

.

The grieving parents will appear on television. In their anger and sorrow,
they will hope to press criminal charges. Usually they will also sue the
fraternity, at which point they will discover how thoroughly these
organizations have indemnified themselves against culpability in such
deaths. The parents will try to turn their grief into meaningful purpose,
but they will discover how intractable a system they are up against, and
how draining the process of chipping away at it is. They will be worn down
by the endless civil case that forces them to relive their sons passing
over and over. The ritual will begin to slow down, but then a brand-new
pair of parentsfilled with the energy and outrage of early griefwill
emerge, and the cycle will begin again.
