Tucker Hipps parents..this may not be popular

[10]
Posted: Apr 3, 2015 8:40 PM
 

Let me say, I'm incredibly sorry for his family. Losing a child, I could not imagine the pain. But unless he was throw from the bridge and someone should be spending life in prison , these lawsuits are crap. Replacing a child with money. Why not sue to end frats? Or campaign for change in his memory.

Hate to say it but my mom always said when I was growing up " if someone told you to jump of a bridge, would you do it". We've all heard it. Well if he did, he made a choice. Regardless of that frats past actions the kid made a choice... On his own. It's a sad outcome, but he's a fault. If he didn't jump, then why sue the university. Let that person serve life.

Either way, their suing everyone for 50 million is ambulance chasing in my opinion.


Do you have kids?

Exactly my point. I have a son. Why 50 million? Why not sue or campaign to end the real cause of his death. Why money? It's petty


50 million would put a nice dent in the fraternities

Get him back. They are suing more to get information about how it happened. They don't want the money, they want closure.

How do you know he jumped from the bridge? It's looking more and more like he was thrown from it.

Tiger. Read first bud. I said if he was thrown that person should spend life in jail. If he jumped, that's on him. Not the frat. Kids make decisions based off what they've been taught.

If he was thrown, even less reason to sue. Push for justice. That's not money


I did read, but I'm not allowed to refute individual parts

Posted: Apr 3, 2015 8:56 PM
 

of your post? The way you talked about him jumping off made it sound like you believed that was what happened. 4/5ths of that paragraph was based around how it was his fault he's dead if he jumped, so excuse me for wanting to try to explain that it is no longer a popular opinion that he jumped off.

If he was thrown, that's all the reason to sue. They have pushed for justice. Where has that gotten them so far? Them filing the suit has gotten people reading over the case, and now those who read the case are behind the family, trying even harder to find justice. Without people backing the family, this could go away quickly. With people helping in the search, they will be able to get more information, and find who is at fault.

The only evidence of him being pushed or thrown is from their cival suit. Not the police tiger......


Thank you for proving my point!

Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:07 PM
 

The best thing this has done was promote the opinion that he was thrown over the side. This has shifted the popular opinion of him jumping over. The Hipps family now has the support of so many more people, and when many people start pushing for justice in this case, things start to get done. It doesn't just disappear.

Again, the family does not care about the money. They care about closure, and this law suit is one of the best things to find thing. They let the population know some of the backstory we hadn't known before, and now more information can come from this.

Tiger. Disagree. People haven't forgotten and change is needed with frats. Whether he jumped from pressure.. Or the other if people need to be in jail.

Change is needed. But again, suing isn't the right path. That's what this country has become. Sue happy.

Again those people should serve life. 100000% agree. Suing is not for purpose of getting information or justice. It's petty.

Their suing currently off info that "maybe" he didn't jump and the frat encouraged jumping off the bridge.

Why did their son jump if so? Why didn't he have the courage to say no.

If he didn't just jump it's a horrible situation. And those responsible should never see daylight. We all agree there.

No matter how you shake it, suing Clemson is a joke. Petty, ambulance chasing

Report says he died from blunt force trama to the head. Not drowning. Them not calling the police at the time wouldn't have changed him being alive or not.

If they really covered it up, jail. If not, again, lawsuit is about a beach house and not Tucker.

I think they got into an argument about the d amn biscuits and got into a scuffle and he was probably push and fell head first. The frat guy shined his light and may or may not have seen him. BUT, he never did any thing about it. The cover up is what gets me. He may could be charged with Involuntary manslaughter or it could be defined an accident. The not notifying anyone and the entire frat trying to cover it up is going to be a whole lot of trouble for a lot of young men


This is what I believe happened too. He was trying to prove


Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:14 PM
 

A point to the other pledges, and he just yelled down for Tucker to meet them at breakfast or something like that. A lot of people have called it murder, but I don't think it was. I think it was all a bad accident

I disagree. The law suits are to prove that there was a cover up by the "brothers" and that someone at Clemson could have stopped the run with a simple email reply.The truth will come out. They did not have permission for the run. They were already under investigation by Clemson and it has been stated they were scheduled to be shut down that afternoon.

I feel 100% that the call was made to the girlfriend and told her he was in the library....to buy time. That would have come from the gf, not the frat boys. Those frat boys knew he was missing and did NOTHING for several hours. He could have been alive if found. I feel like the Hipp's lawyer has a lot of phone and text records.


I do not feel they are, as you say, replacing a child with money. They want the truth and they deserve it. I feel like what money they get will be used to honor Tucker. They perhaps would set up a memorial scholarship fund that would go on for years. They may use the money to set up some type of organization to help prevent this type of thing from happening again. BUT, I do not believe at all that they are trying to replace a child. There is no amount of money in the world that can do that.

I wasn't in a frat either and agree. But holding Clemson responsible for possibly their own child's decision is reckless unless they are 100000 percent certain. And if they were, so would the cops and people would be in jail.

I don't like them attacking Clemson.


Re: Tucker Hipps parents..this may not be popular


Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:11 PM
 

Clemson will never be found liable because it would set a precedent that somehow schools are responsible for what their students do off campus. Think about it this way: if you are a member of the Clemson debate team and off campus you drink too much at a party and die, is Clemson responsible? Is being a member of an organization that Clemson recognizes the causation of the death? That's a leap no court is willing to make.


Clemson is responsible for approving that they have that run

[1]
Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:17 PM
 

So I could see where Clemson's name was thrown in on the suit. Also, VP Gail may have been a big reason. I have seen claims she tried to cover things up, although I don't believe it.

Clemson never responded when they asked if they could have the run, so the frat "assumed" it was approved. That's most likely what Clemson could get in trouble over, but I don't think they will. You can't email your boss asking for the day off hours before you have to work, and if he doesn't respond assume that he meant yes. That's idiotic

Exactly tiger. Non denial isn't permisson.

My whole point. Involving Clemson in the suit is a joke. Think we said the same thing in different ways.

Someone should be in jail if thrown. If he jumped, that's on him. No other way to shake it

Re: Clemson is responsible for approving that they have that run

I think they are suing Clemson just to bring out the facts that the email was not answered and the University was slow about all the other allegations against the frat and failed to shut them down when the allegations (and proof) were made at beginning of semester. They know they can not get any money from Clemson, as Clemson is protected by a SC tort law. IMO, suing Clemson is a way to make Clemson stay on top of the complaints and do what they need to do ASAP. The lady that handles all of this (and failed to respond to the email) was fired shortly after the incident,,,but Clemson insist it was not due to the incident

I honestly think these law suits will result in the truth, which I think was a really bad accident as King and Tucker argued over the breakfast. He panicked when he could not find him after he fell in a scuffle and told other members HIS story and insisted all the other frats stick with the story. For most of them, all they know is what they were told. But, I think all 3 named in the suit know what really happened. The biggest thing is all the cover up.

There is so much misinformation in your post and don't know where to begin. If they have text messages stating what they say, and arrest should have been made by now if for nothing other than obstruction of justice. The lawsuits are a fishing expedition because they have been unable to ascertain any hard evidence to this point. I don't know Tucker not any of the members of his fraternity but. I have a hard time believing this was some sort of calculated miurdrr that subsequently has been covered up by multiple kids. 80% of people who reply to posts on this subject are more anti fraternities than they are anything else and are using this tragedy to further there baseless crusade against something they weren't part of either by choice or by exclusion.


Re: Tucker Hipps parents..this may not be popular


Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:09 PM
 

I lived with 3 people that were in a frat and hung out with them and their brothers often. By choice I wasn't in it. Suing for 50 mill isn't a fishing expedition for info. 10+ 18 yr olds sticking to a story is NOT normal. Frat or not. Someone would have caved under pressure.


Re: Tucker Hipps parents..this may not be popular


Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:15 PM
 

Absolutely agree. That's why if there is multiple kids that saw or know exactly what happened and it's involves on or more persons being the cause of his death then someone should have come forward by now. And with kids and there use of text and social media I know the truth would have been uncovered of it was something like "Tim threw tucker over the bridge". I have no idea what happened but I don't think it was some plotted murder

I think in this situation that LE and SLED are just waiting to see what the frat boys do. They may feel that the pressure of a law suit will get people talking. At this point, they have an entire fraternity saying the same thing, but when looking at having to pay large amounts of money, someone will narc. What is huge is that no one reported anything for hours. As far as frats, I have no opinion either way. All I would want for them is to stop all these nonsense that they think is cute and want a person to prove themselves.

And how do you expect to change frats without suing for $50 million?
Do you think anyone will change if they sue for 20 bucks? No, they'll just pay the parents off. After all they just asked for 20 dollars.
They only way to get an organization to change is to ask them for something they are not going to willing give.
A fraternity is not going to go through discovery or trial over a few dollars; they'll just settle and nothing will happen. I realize that means people will question the parents' motive, but they are campaigning "for change in his memory" and this is an effective way to do it.

This all the way to trial. Then I will tend to agree it will seem more like a $ grab. But let's not pre-judge and see where it goes. I still contend they want answers, not the $. The $ is simply a way to motivate all involved to get ALL the facts and details out into the open. I'm pretty sure this is the rationale being used here, but let's wait and see.

Re: what stinks abou the lawsuit is if the two parties

That remains to be seen. If they do have confidential settlement then it probably means the frat doesn't want incriminating facts out in the public, or the parents were just looking for a quick settlement, or both.

Read the law before spouting off disgusting accusations about a "beach house" and "powerball". Clemson won't pay a dime- that's about the only surety here.




Naming Clemson in the suit is not about money. It's about reform and accountability.

Posted: Apr 3, 2015 9:27 PM
 

I would sue the fraternity at the very least. Also, as a parent I would be hard pressed to believe he jumped. This is considered a homicide.

With that said, I would NOT sue Clemson and think this is casting a negative light on their intentions. By suing Clemson the family has little to gain and make many people feel it is purely monetary.

Everyone knows this is for answers, but suing Clemson seems like a miscalculation.

Put yourself in their shoes and realize that until extreme pressure is placed on this case, which $50MM will now do, it s too easy for the authorities to be less than thorough or worse yet to be less than forthcoming.

Well by God, with a $50MM bounty riding on it, you rest assured EVERYTHING and EVERYONE will be investigated with a fine tooth comb now, both by the prosecution and the defense.

Who will get a good chunk of the settlement, so in that regard, this assures the Hipps will maximize the results of an investigation to get to the bottom of what really went down because now lots of $ is motivating those who will turn over every stone to win this case and that will force a lot of truth to come flooding out.

I can assure you, the $50MM is not about greed and is more about vengeance! Good for them. They deserve nothing less than folks moving heaven and Earth to get them some answers and closure. You can bet $50MM on the line will get everything a full vetting.

If you reward or punish behavior, behavior changes.

The parents are suing the University so that the University will change/enforce the behavior of the Student Body. ie Fraternities. This will affect all Universities and change behavior

The parents are suing the National Fraternity to affect the same result - a change in behavior. This will also change the behavior of ALL Fraternities

The parents are suing the local kids in the fraternity to get answers. The lawyers can get more answers through a civil wrongful death trial than in a regular investigation because the rules are different.

Ask this question - What are a group of Freshmen/Sophomores doing out for a run at 5-6 AM in the dark?
Is this normal behavior for a group of kids? Unless they are on a sports teams, I would say not.

Perhaps a hazing event? Sure looks like it. I am not knocking Clemson, as hazing has been going on at all Fraternities at all schools for far too long.

If this lawsuit causes a change in the entire University/Greek culture and behavior, then the kid's death will not be a total waste. Perhaps it will save the life of a future kid.

I don't have a problem with the suit against the national fraternity and the individuals. I do have a problem with the suit against Clemson. This was an off campus non school sponsored event in a different county. I fail to see how Clemson can be at fault. If they get any money from Clemson it just adds to the out of control legal system we have of everyone suing each other and sets a bad precident. What next suing universities for things that happen in Panama City on spring break.


Re: Tucker Hipps parents..this may not be popular


Posted: Apr 4, 2015 3:25 PM
 

IMO, the lady that was suppose to handle all the frat complaints was very negligent in following up on all the complaints and answering the email. Since she worked for Clemson at the time, Clemson is responsible for her actions in this case. Complaints against this fraternity had been going on since school started in Aug/Sept. The complaints were enough to shut the frat down but nothing was done because of negligence.

They will not get any money from Clemson and the Hipps and their lawyers already know that. Clemson is protected by a SC tort law.

Adding Clemson to the suit will make Clemson monitor frats better and other colleges, too. IMO, that is why Clemson is included

Emotions and reason/logic cannot coexist.

These folks are off center with the emotion of losing a child and not knowing how it happened. They are thinking without using their brains. No intent to insult from me.

Perhaps if they are suing to find out what happened I could imagine myself doing exactly what they are doing. I might try and punish those responsible by suing them for 50 million dollars but I would never attempt to capitalize off the death of one of my sons.

The money is leverage. This is about getting these kids deposed, with the threat of perjury and financial ruin hanging over their heads. Here is the thing with a civil case, you can still choose not to incriminate yourself, but you're going to lose. So, they'll see just how tight these bro's are with bankruptcy and the stigma of a civil judgement for wrongful death waiting for them if they decide not to talk. Someone who was only marginally involved is going to roll over on the guys that were more involved with the cover up, or, worse.

This post is short sighted and made without any knowledge or care of the facts. You have no idea of what actually happen. The parents don't give a crap about the money. It's about getting answers. They know they are t going to win that monetary judgment. It's about getting all these stupid frat kids under oath in a deposition and tripping them up trying to get one to turn. It's extremely similar to the continuing litigation with lauren spears at Indiana University. Disparaging these parents who lost a child is dispicable. You have no idea what they are going through.


Ditto!***

Before terms like "Ambulance Chasing" are used, perhaps getting more info would be insightful:

From Fitsnews: http://www.fitsnews.com/2014/12/04/sources-tucker-hipps-dropped-bridge/

"FITS is now hearing from multiple sources that Hipps – rather than jumping into the water – was instead being held over it as part of a hazing ritual shortly before the “unsupported fall” took place.

“He was being dangled by his ankles off the bridge,” one source familiar with the situation tells FITS, adding he was “dropped by accident.”

Wow …

While not getting into those sorts of specifics, a source at Clemson has confirmed to FITS that Hipps’ parents were recently informed that a hazing ritual gone wrong was responsible for their son’s death – and that the school was taking the “necessary steps” to ensure similar tragedies did not occur in the future.


May God show His grace to that poor family.
