Students charged with manslaughter in Penn State frat death

could almost semi-understand if everyone involved made stupid mistakes while wasted... but these guys actively tried to cover it up the next day and afterwards, presumably when sober:

Prosecutors also claim there was an effort to conceal and destroy evidence. The fraternity brothers communicated through a group messaging system, which showed that the day after the party, Young, the president, instructed another member to clean the basement and get rid of any traces of alcohol.

In one series of texts, Young wrote that the fraternity could be sued “for giving [Piazza] alcohol that contributed to his death. Also the guys taking care of him didn't call an ambulance right away. ... I just don't know what I'm liable for as president.”

Young later directed that one of the messaging systems be deleted...

In one recovered message, a pledge member told fellow pledges: "If need be, just tell them what I told you guys, found him behind an away bar the next morning at around 10 a.m., and he was freezing cold, but we decided to call 911 instantly, because the kid's health was paramount."

Young, the president of Beta Theta Pi chapter and a Malvern resident, describes himself on LinkedIn as a junior who is majoring in enterprise risk management and finance.

According to the account, he is going to be a summer intern at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in an operations analyst development program, and briefly served as a member of a Navy ROTC program in State College. On Twitter, his biographical information is limited to one line: "It pays to be a winner."
