Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

Over 90 students, undergrad and grad, were arrested today by the DEA, San Diego police,
and SDSU police, after a year long investigation following the death of a coed due to
coke at an off campus apartment.

The center of the drug bust was Fraternity Row, the Greeks are key to the investigation.
One frat in particular.

The university pursued the investigation, and cooperated with the cops and DEA, for over
a year.

Good. Some are already complaining the school infringed on their rights by cooperating
as they did, but, so what. Get over it. If you're using and selling drugs on a state
campus, you're out. Too bad. That's our dime you're going to school on, even if you pay.


SEriously, you were buying, selling, and storing and using drugs. Don't blame the campus
for having an investigation. I'm glad they did. More schools should do that. Especially
in So. Cal.

SDSU has nearly 40,000 students full and part time, under and graduate students.
It's a mini-city, on a huge spread out campus. Add in the beach, good weather, Mexico
down the freeway, and it's also a home to what any campus can have, and usually does -
lots of stoners.

Get them out of there. It's a deadly combination - students, college, drugs, booze.


I'm sure if they busted USC and UCLA frats today, they'd find some drugs.
Chico State is probably mad, hey,we're the #1 party school in California, not SDSU.
Which is probably true. But, this thing is terrible for SDSU, and the other 39,900
students who aren't doing this kind of crap.

The frat guys were texting each other about sales of coke and prices and sales on
the stuff. Not real smart - losers. Duh. Anyone can read that, including the
cops and the DEA.

I can see the 1st Amendment lawsuits already from this.
What is going on at the campuses in So. Cal. lately.

The teachers arrested lately for sexual abuse of jr. high and high school students
this past month.


Heck, a young nuke engineering student was stabbed to death at UC Berkeley this weekend.
In front of lots of people. Guy wasn't doing anything but attending a frat party w/friends.

Just a couple of years ago some UC Santa Barbara student got wasted, and ran over and killed
some people at Isla Vista on a party night, near the frats.


Ah, man this will put a definite bummer on the grad events at the campus.
Dude........SD banned drinking on the beach too this year......darnit.

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

Cynicism in its most pure state right there. If anybody's shocked that people in college do drugs and drink, then I'll be waiting for you when you come out of your cave. I'm not surprised at this bust. State's a party school for the most part these days.

If states feels so powerful, then maybe delegalise coca cola and fastfoods first. It killed MORE people than any drugs. And ban the TV. It makes people stupid...

In case of thos students...Well its too much educated idiots in the world (especially in USA) Few less of them wil not make a disaster...

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

SDSU is not alone in this. But, I think the proximity to Mexico, the beach atmosphere of
San Diego, the large on campus residence and near off campus population, all helped make
it a bigger problem than it should have been. Add in the Greeks, and it's a mess.

Sadly, and most would acknowledge this, drugs on a college campus are not hard to get, buy,
grow. Any residence hall has it, frats certainly.

The college asked for the investigation, and I give them credit for that. They could have buried
the whole thing, and they wanted it done, w/the DEA and State Univ. police and SD police.

I wonder if the DEA is doing this at other big schools across the country right now?



On the other hand, SDSU should probably just close down all the frats and sororities by now. It's
long been a haven for the party atmosphere of the school. Shut them all down, like other schools
have done. The other 39,000 students who never go to frat parties or rush week, don't need them.
It's one thing to party on the weekend at the dorm, or a rental house w/the friends, but, another to
grow, sell, distribute heavy drugs, and be linked to gangs.

The campus PR person was saying that they normally have 60 drug arrests a year at the campus, and the
satellite campuses in Imperial and North County. Most are minor offenses, like pot possession.

I found it strange that they had grad students involved, and even some Mexican mafia guys tied into it,
great. But, now, we're getting the student whining of a few arrested. It wasn't me, it was my roomies,
I never did it before.......yeah, right. The one student asking if he could still get his job w/the Homeland
Security, after he was busted. Uh, no...

Did he not realize SDSU has a major fed. govt. contract with the Homeland Security Dept. - they would not
think twice about bringing in the feds for an investigation.

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

It is pretty clear the frats are where the major problem for this was at.
Multiple houses suspended, most of the students arrested have ties to a house
one way or another.

Close them all down for a year or two.

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

SDSU has always had a party school reputation.
Hard not to with the way the school looks, the great location, fantastic weather,
you wear shorts all year long, and ride a skateboard between classes. Even the
professors often move there for the lifestyle and location.



Wisconsin and Chico State and Florida State and ASU and WSU and OSU and
UCSanta Cruz (no grades man)....party heaven. SDSU dropped down that traditional
annual list every year. I think this moves them right back up there though.



TJ and Mexico right there for the weekend. Hard not to party.

But, it's also been around for 100+ years.
If you want a good job though, you can get it w/a degree from SDSU in lots of programs.
Especially the science and business programs.

It's also one of the largest schools in California, it's grown by droves in the
past 30 years. Well known business, engineering, teaching, programs, and probably the
best USA-Mexico study programs in the country. They have Nobel Laureates, and Pulitzer
Prize winning staff. But, it's not UCSD - which is Linus Pauling central...lots of Nobel
winners there, regularly. UCSD is where the brainiacs go, and USD is where the rich kids
go (private Catholic college in Mission Bay). SDSU is for everyone else. Newsweek has
given many of the programs there a very good review over the years, so they're doing something
right.

Again, I think the campus did a good thing inviting in the DEA and police to investigate away -
no matter what the embarrassing outcome.

I wouldn't bag on SDSU or CSUF or CS San Marcos that much as state schools. It's a good system
overall.

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

I don't think we should ban food or tv.
Why hand over more power to a fumbling govt.?


I think the govt. is not my parent.

I don't equate coke and crack to a burger, fries,
and a bad reality tv show.

Sorry.....parents are parents. Not a politician
of any party elected to office, with an eye to keep his
lifelong job by expanding his powers over an individual household
or life.

Why do we need them to slap our wrist about food?
We're talking McDonalds and Burger King right.

It's silly really.
Is there anyone who doesn't know if you eat less, exercise
more, you won't turn into a 900 lb. lard tub.

With all that, we're living longer, and better....fat tubs of
lard that we are.


As for tv, again, we have choices. Turn it off.
Don't buy a tv, don't buy your kid every gadget known
to man, and then wonder why he or she spends all their
time on the tube, or playing games. It's not free.

I'd like to think, adults in particular, have a brain,
and we can choose to make decisions.

I don't put coke, pot, or hash in the same category as a Big Mac or
a chimichanga from Taco Bell.

I don't think the DEA cares if a guy is buying 4 tacos at a time at
Wahoo's Fish Tacos in Pacific Beach, but, does if he's buying 4 things of coke
at Mission Beach.

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

Locally, I am enjoying hearing some of the students,and the non-students, arrested, thru
their lawyers or friends or family give excuses.

Framed.
Innocent first timer.
Didn't know.
Roommates.
Again, yeah, right.........

Oh, it changed my opinion...So now police should set non-students free, keep students in the jail, and kicked "innocent first timers" and "roommates" asses...

Re: Drug Bust at SDSU - Greek drug ring

Now, it seems they were not all arrested yesterday.

Only about 1/3 of that number of near 100 were arrested
yesterday.

Most were arrested over the past year. That's not how
they presented it yesterday. Which is weird.

Two frats are the center of the investigation.
But, several suspended already.

Good.


Again, I have no problem with the State University, with 3/4's of
everything coming from state and federal money for the school, asking
the DEA and police to investigate away for a year. Good for them.


Ban drugs or ban a Big Mac.....ban meth or ban french fries.
Ban a bad tv show kids like to watch or ban date rape drugs.
H-m-m-m, what to do.

Do you really think they're the same? That's just a discussion I don't get at all.

Personally, pot is not a big deal to me. Don't use it. But, I don't see why it
is outlawed as it is. But, it is. So, don't use it or buy it or you chance
getting arrested. Really, dont' grow it, and distribute it, and then add on to
your shopping list w/crack and estacy pills.


Uh, they're illegal. That's not a new thing is it? Coke and pot and hash and
meth are illegal. If you don't want them to be, protest away for that. Visit
Amsterdam or something. But, in the USA, they are illegal, and producing it,
selling it, is illegal. It is often tied to cartels and gangs, and that's a lot
worse too. The school tells you that when you enroll, you can be kicked out for
a violation like that. As these students found out. There goes the cash they put into
the school year, or 4 years of school. Gone.
