A Penn State University fraternity has been suspended after police discovered two private Facebook pages containing pictures of mostly nude women taken while the subjects were sleeping or passed out.
Several members of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity contributed photos to the Facebook pages, according to a search warrant obtained by local news station WJAC TV .
One page, called “Covert Business Transactions”, was deleted after a victim allegedly discovered the page. In its place, fraternity members created a second version called “2.0”, police said.
State College police said nearly 150 current students and alumni had access to the private pages, which also included photos of hazing and drug sales. Most of the other photos were primarily of women, partially clothed.
“It appears they were passed out or sleeping,” Lt Keith Robb of the State College police told WJAC TV.
Police are working with the fraternity’s national headquarters and Penn State’s Office of Student Conduct and Interfraternity Council (IFC). The IFC suspended the fraternity after learning about the Facebook page, said president Rick Groves.
“Not only to determine potential victims, potential suspects, but also to sanction the fraternity for their conduct,” Robb told WPXI .
“Delta Rho, the chapter was immediately placed on full chapter suspension by Penn State’s Interfraternity Council,” the IFC said in a statement . “Upon completion of all investigation into this matter, Kappa Delta Rho will be summoned by the IFC to undergo a conduct review session.”

US raps China for ‘escalation’ in South China Sea
The United States on Thursday sharpened its criticism of China's activities in disputed areas of the South China Sea, slamming an "escalation" in efforts to intimidate other claimants" such as Vietnam.
China redeployed a government-owned survey vessel -- with armed escorts -- into the waters off Vietnam earlier this month, the US said.
Hanoi says those waters are part of its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
The move could reignite a spat between Beijing and Vietnam over rights to the resource-rich waters in the South China Sea. Other countries in Southeast Asia also have claimed parts of the sea.
‘Unhinged, erratic and nuts’: Conservative warns Trump’s ‘chosen one’ outburst should set off alarms
In her column for the Washington Post, conservative never-Trumper Jennifer Rubin implored Republicans to look deep down inside themselves and stop defending Donald Trump after the president bizarrely declared himself the "chosen one" while speaking to the press on Wednesday.
Under a headline, "Trump’s unhinged display should frighten everyone,"Rubin ticked off comments made by the president in the past week since he returned from vacation including expressing a desire to buy Greenland, proposing -- then backing off -- new tax policies and calling Jews "disloyal" and wondered what it will take for people to see that the president is "nuts."
