Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) House demolished, TUPD station planned

Post by bigmoneytx »

The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house at Tulane University, site of a 2008 hazing event so notorious that the organization lost its charter and 10 members faced felony charges, has been demolished.

This frat was notorious for starting fights, roofying its partygoers, causing major trouble with the university in regards to damages and graffitti, and gave douchebags everywhere a clique to expand their douchebaggery with. I will shed no tears at its disappearance.

A police substation across the street from The Boot... the better to deter (or quickly extinguish) frat fights at the bar, I suspect....

For some reason, I don't remember hearing about the story three years ago. Wow, how STUPID do you have to be, to think that you can pour boiling water on someone and it won't be a big deal?? And then the charges were dropped without comment?? Remind$ me of the tenni$ player that ran over the TUPD officer and got off ba$ically free.

police station over there is a great idea, and not even because of the frat fights but because, at least when i was there, multiple kids were getting robbed walking to and from maple street and to their apartments every weekend. Now, there will be cops that much closer. win, win. Unless you are a frat member and like to fight, I suppose

This TUPD station will bring some immediate attention to the frats who are getting out of hand on a given evening and the sororities should feel a little safer. I think this is a really good move by the administration. I also hope TU builds an attractive building instead of some ugly box.
