Send only non-crime-related texts

There was a made-for-video movie called Wicked Blood starring Little Miss Sunshine herself, Abigail Breslin, as a teenager coping with her family's methamphetamine business.

One thing you learned from that movie was, don't announce your crimes via text message. In this case, associates of the criminals you're outsmarting might see them and decide to murder you.

It's a lesson idiot frat-boys at Penn State are only now learning. When a pledge they were hazing died, they decided to conspire by text rather than simply speak to each other.

One texted, "drink hazing can send me to jail," and "I don't want to go to jail for this"

"He looked fucking dead" texted an intelligent-sounding young man. "I think we are fucked."

"I think after this we could be kicked off," one said missing the bigger picture.

"Make sure the pledges clean the basement and get rid of any evidence of alcohol."

"Make sure the pledges keep quiet about last night and this situation."

Prosecutors say one of them did an internet search for "How would 9 drinks in an hour affect a 200 pound guy."

All this is used against them in court. They're charged with manslaughter among other things.

The other lessons from this, of course, are don't haze people and if someone is hurt, call 911 immediately especially if they look "fucking dead".
