Grand Jury to determine if criminal charges are necessary in pledge's death

Penn State strongly objected to that characterization in a 144-page report released by a district attorney in Pennsylvania, saying it made extraordinary efforts to combat drinking and hazing.

The Grand Jury will hear testimony on Monday and Tuesday. One of the security firm's workers said they were basically hired as nothing more than "glorified babysitters".

Why did no one call 911 after pledge Timothy Piazza got hurt? The report recommends a series of changes that the school should undertake in the wake of the death of 19-year-old Tim Piazza in February. Parks Miller called Penn State's response to the report "defensive and somewhat demeaning". State hazing and underage drinking laws are weak, Penn State said, and contended that the grand jury had struggled to provide a single recommendation to help the university fight unsafe student drinking and hazing.

"The Report misunderstands or entirely disregards Penn State's tangible commitment to improving safety, as well as public universities' relationship with alumni boards, housing corporations and national organizations, which have oversight of these private organizations", the school said in a statement. If it finds that a chapter jeopardized a student by hazing, the school will permanently revoke its recognition, it said. The same grand jury previously considered the criminal charges brought against former members of Beta Theta Pi, the fraternity Piazza was pledging. The international's leaders said they have "clearly and consistently expressed its position that it does not tolerate hazing or alcohol abuse".

Another suggestion is for fraternity members and pledges to be required to sign a "pledges bill of rights", making them aware that hazing is unacceptable and that there are consequences.

Surveillance footage from inside the frat house, shown to the grand jury, revealed disturbing scenes of fraternity brothers slapping, hitting and sitting on an unresponsive Piazza, as Caitlin Flanagan reported for The Atlantic.

Penn State acknowledged as well that the problems of hazing and alcohol use "will require the concerted action of everyone if we are to create sustainable change".
