Robert Champion, Sr., the father of Florida A&M University drum major Robert Champion who died in a hazing incident, listens during a news conference with his wife Pam, right, and attorney Chis Chestnut, Wednesday, May 23, 2012, in Atlanta. The Florida A&M drum major who died after being hazed on a bus 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. Champion's parents said at a news conference Wednesday that they are having a hard time believing that their son volunteered to be hazed. (AP Photo/David Goldman) less
