An incriminating post on the Pike Facebook page.
Despite scores of scandalous Facebook posts depicting rampant drug dealing, hazing, and creep shots of allegedly underage women, members of Florida International University's Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity will not face any criminal charges.

Pi Kappa Alpha frat brothers -- or Pikes, as they are known -- have apparently closed ranks, refusing to snitch on one another and leaving campus police with no hard evidence.

"We need more than just Facebook postings to get us to the level of making an arrest," said assistant FIU Police Chief Ben Guerrero.

Guerrero said his department launched a serious investigation, interviewing more than 30 people directly or indirectly tied to the Facebook posts.

Some Pikes hired lawyers and refused to talk to cops, however. Meanwhile, those who did cooperate also closed ranks around the fraternity.

"Based on our investigation, we could not find any probable cause that rose to the level where we could make an arrest of anybody for any criminal violations," Guerrero said. Cops simply could not make a drug, hazing, or nudie-pic case stick.

"If someone made postings about drugs, we need to be able to corroborate, number one, if anyone actually bought drugs from that individual," Guerrero said. "It's either that or the person themselves gives us a confession that 'Yeah, I sold drugs,' which we never found."

Guerrero also said that when his department learned of the allegations, it was too late to conduct a sting.

"By the time we received the information to initiate our investigation, most of the individuals who had put up the Facebook postings were aware that the university was looking into them," he said. "So we weren't able to do any undercover investigation, any undercover buys. It would have been frivolous to start conducting an investigation that way."

Many of the Facebook posts involved selling Adderall, but frat brothers claimed to have legal prescriptions. "Even illegal underage drinking was again very difficult to prove," Guerrero said.

So smoking pot and sending mass texts of pictures of naked girls, possibly minors, is "regular college stuff." I have two words for you as a college student myself. They're called Fuck and You.

Even if FIU doesn't do anything to them, the Interfraternity Council should.

Who says the higher educational systems in our country is a joke? Let's give them all tons and tons of loans so they can party their assess off and be taught that acting like this is just "ok". Way to put your foot down #FIU.

Hey Lourdes, I just wanted to let you know that everybody thought your sarcastic attempt at humor was very funny. Like, really. If you don't already have a steady career path, you should definitely look into comedy.
