    Talking 75 students arrested

    Drug bust at San Diego State University; 75 students arrested
    One student was about to receive a criminal justice degree


    By ALLISON HOFFMAN • Associated Press Writer • May 6, 2008

    Dozens of San Diego State University students were arrested after a sweeping drug investigation found that some fraternity members openly dealt drugs and one even sent a mass text message advertising cocaine, authorities said Tuesday.

    Two kilograms of cocaine were seized, along with 350 Ecstasy pills, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, hash oil, methamphetamine, illicit prescription drugs, several guns and at least $60,000 in cash, authorities said.

    Of the 96 people arrested, 75 were students. Eighteen of the students were arrested Tuesday when nine search warrants were executed at various locations including fraternities, said Jesse Rodriguez, San Diego County assistant district attorney.

    The undercover probe, dubbed Operation Sudden Fall, was sparked by the cocaine overdose death of a student in May 2007, authorities said. As the investigation continued, another student, from Mesa College, died Feb. 26 of a cocaine overdose at an SDSU fraternity house, the DEA said.

    Those arrested included a student who was about to receive a criminal justice degree and another who was to receive a master’s degree in homeland security.

    “A sad commentary is that when one of these individuals was arrested, they inquired as (to) whether or not his arrest and incarceration would have an effect on him becoming a federal law enforcement officer,” said Ralph Partridge, special agent in charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in San Diego.

    Some defendants were scheduled to appear in state court to face charges Tuesday.

    During the probe investigators discovered that in some fraternities most members were aware of “organized drug dealing occurring from the fraternity houses by its members,” the DEA said in a news release.

    “Undercover agents purchased cocaine from fraternity members and confirmed that a hierarchy existed for the purpose of selling drugs for money,” the DEA said.

    The district attorney’s office said search warrants were served in San Diego and suburban La Mesa, including the Theta Chi fraternity house and several apartments.

    A member of Theta Chi sent out a mass text message to his “faithful customers” stating that he and his “associates” would be unable to sell cocaine while they were in Las Vegas over one weekend, according to the DEA. The text promoted a cocaine “sale” and listed the reduced prices.

    Theta Chi’s San Diego chapter declined to comment.

    “We’re talking to our advisers,” said John Phillips, a past president of the chapter.

    Dale Taylor, the fraternity’s national executive director, said he was “obviously shocked and saddened” by the allegations.

    Theta Chi has prohibited the San Diego chapter from group activities like parties or sports and will investigate additional disciplinary measures, up to expulsion of members or the entire chapter.

    Theta Chi, based in Indianapolis, has 131 chapters in the U.S. and Canada and more than 161,000 initiates. It was founded in 1856.

    The San Diego chapter was founded 61 years ago and has 65 members.

    “They were on the upswing,” Taylor said. “They had improved their recruitment. They were trying to raise money for a new house.”

    University police and federal drug agents worked together in the investigation, making more than 130 undercover drug buys at locations including fraternity houses, student parking areas and dormitories, authorities said.

    Shawn Collinsworth, executive director of the national office of Phi Kappa Psi, said he was told by two of the SDSU fraternity chapter’s leaders that four of its members were arrested. He said the fraternity is cooperating with the investigation.

    “It isn’t behavior becoming of Phi Kappa Psi,” Collinsworth said.

    San Diego State is one of the largest schools in California’s state university system with about 34,000 students. The campus has an active network of fraternities and sororities.

    Stupid people. When selling cocaine, it's best to keep a low profile, but these guys obviously aren't very smart.

    Sucks for the dude who was about to graduate, but that's what you get for being an idiot.

    This a master's degree!? This is a joke, right? I mean, what the hell do you learn, racial profiling and how to deploy bomb-sniffing dogs?

    This article has me kicking myself for not obtaining a formal education.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    You also learn how to color-code your terror alerts, and how to use duct tape creatively.

    They take your ID when you go in at night and don't give it back until you leave. They also goggle at you like a particularly ugly zoo specimen if you don't have bleached blonde hair and 8 lbs. of caked-on makeup.

    "It" being the university? I'm completely intrigued by this school now. How does somebody shoot up a university?
