Florida A&M University is in the news again because of the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion. It was announced that arrest warrants have been issued for 13 people. We have yet to learn who these individuals are. The arrests will occur in multiple locations. It has been five months since Champions death.
On a side note, two FAMU music professors were fired due to their presence and alleged involvement during a Kappa Kappa Psi Music Fraternity hazing incident in 2010. Both men, Diron Holloway and Anthony Simons are from Miami and indicate they resigned after receiving notification they would be terminated. Meanwhile, there is a push for the reinstatement of former FAMU Marching 100 director Julian White who is currently on paid administrative leave in conjunction Champion’s death.
With the legal process moving to the arrest phase, the spotlight on FAMU, the Marching 100 and hazing will heat up. The 100 is still sidelined and only the Lord knows what is on the horizon when the Champion case goes to trial.
