New developments came in the FAMU Robert Champion hazing death case. Charges were upgraded to manslaughter for 12 of the defendants this week. Robert Champion was a FAMU drum major who was viciously beaten to death by his fellow band members on a parked bus in Orlando, FL in November 2011. There are claims that Champion, who was a vocal opponent of hazing and openly gay, may have been brutally beaten also because of his sexual orientation. To find out more, read my article on MUSED, "Upgraded Charges in FAMU Robert Champion Hazing Death Case."
