Timothy Piazza’s Father: Frat Members Are ‘Morally Culpable’ For His Death | TODAY


ARE FACING CHARGES AND WHAT THE
PARENTS THINK SHOULD HAPPEN TO THEM.
18 YOUNG MEN HAVE — ARE FACING CHARGES TO DATE.
DO YOU SEE THEM ALL AS BEING EQUALLY CULPABLE?
AND BY THAT, I MEAN, THOSE WHO TOLD HIM TO DRINK THE ALCOHOL
AND THOSE WHO STEPPED OVER HIS BODY WHEN HE WAS IN THAT
DESPERATE CONDITION? >>I THINK IT’S UP TO THE JURY
TO DECIDE. >>WHAT ABOUT IN YOUR HEART?
>>MANY MY HEART, THEY WERE ALL MORALLY CULPABLE.
>>MOST OF THE YOUNG MEN CHARGED ARE 19, 20 YEARS OLD.
WHAT SHOULD THEY FACE, THESE 19-YEAR-OLDS?
>>WHAT’S A LIFE WORTH? IT’S OUR SON.
WE’RE NEVER GOING TO SEE HIM EVER AGAIN.
ASSUMING HE WOULD LIVE TO 90, HE’S LOST 70 YEARS OF HIS LIFE.
>>HE DOESN’T GET TO GRADUATE. HE DOESN’T GET TO GET MARRIED.
>>TO THOSE WHO WOULD SAY, THESE ARE YOUNG MEN, TOO, AND DO WE
THROW THEIR LIVES OUT? >>THEY THREW THEIR LIVES OUT.
>>YOU DON’T DO THE CRIME IF YOU CAN’T DO THE TIME.
WE DIDN’T ASK THEM TO DO THAT TO OUR SON.
>>I HAVE THREE KIDS AND TWO OF THEM ARE TEENAGERS.
I NEED TO TALK TO THEM ABOUT THIS.
WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY TO MY ALMOST 16-YEAR-OLD SON?
>>DO THE RIGHT THING. UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED HERE.
AND IF EVER YOU’RE IN A SITUATION WHERE SOMEBODY NEEDS
HELP, HELP THEM. IT’S A PHONE CALL AWAY.
THERE’S NO REASON TO NOT HELP SOMEBODY THAT’S IN NEED.
>>JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES AGO, WE RECEIVED A STATEMENT FROM
PENN STATE THAT SAYS, IN PART, QUOTE, OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THE
FAMILY. THIS IS HEART WRENCHING FOR THE
FAMILY. AND OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
I ASKED THE PIAZZAS IF THEY PLAN TO FILE A CIVIL SUIT.
THEY HAVE ENGAGED AN ATTORNEY. BUT RIGHT NOW, THEY’RE FOCUSING
ON THE CRIMINAL CASES. THEY’RE ESTABLISHING A
FOUNDATION IN TIMOTHY’S NAME. YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT THAT
FOUNDATION ON OUR WEBSITE. >>I GET THE SENSE THEY WANT
THIS TO HOPEFULLY LEAD TO SOM
