They should drop hazing at schools all over. Post signs that hazing deaths will be prosecuted as murder.

This is where I went to college.  Good ol' Chico State.

As the article mentioned, that frat was a different name not too long ago and their national charter and the school both severed ties with them.  Every frat on campus did the same shit though, these guys just had a death happen to them.  Another frat had some kid die of alcohol poisoning when I was there, not that long ago.

What ever happened to "Pick up this ice cube using your ass cheeks" or "Go fetch me a beer, you can only step on the white squares pledge - you have 1 minute...go.  Oh, and don't shake my beer"?

An autopsy showed death was triggered by hyponatremia, a condition in which excess water in the body causes sodium levels in the blood to drop. Water is then absorbed into the blood and fluid builds up in the brain.

Okay, so I think this one isn't the kid's fault.  I mean who knew drinking too much water could kill you?

However, some other deaths, were just as much the dead guy's fault as the frat.

the same thing will sometimes happen to marathon runner...although they don't always die from it.  in their case, they sweat out a large amount of salt, then take in large volumes of water...you end up hyponatremic and it is potentially lethal if severe enough.
