This 2010 photo provided by the Champion family shows Robert Champion, the Florida A&M University drum major who died in a Nov. 19 , 2011 hazing incident. Champion was known for his opposition to hazing but agreed to go through a brutal initiation ritual because it was seen as an honor, according to interviews with band mates released Wednesday, May 23, 2012. Champion's parents said at a news conference that they are having a hard time believing that their son volunteered to be hazed. (AP Photo/Courtesy of the Champion Family) less
