Florida A&M University dismisses 4 students in connection to band member's death
Source: AP

Florida A&M University says it's dismissing four students for their role in the death of marching band member Robert Champion.

Champion was found unresponsive on Nov. 19 on a bus parked outside an Orlando, Fla., hotel after the school's football team lost to a rival. A 911 caller said Champion had vomit in his mouth in the moments before he died, according to audio of the emergency call released Thursday.

The 26-year-old's death has sparked a criminal investigation as well as a probe into whether FAMU has ignored past warnings about hazing.

FAMU President James Ammons acknowledged the dismissal of the students in a memo he sent earlier this week to members of the FAMU Board of Trustees.

1. We saw an interview on the nightly news...
And, we were left with TONS of questions.

However...the band? Shut the fucking thing DOWN! Now! And no
marching band for a minimum of 4 years! And NO prior members
can join.

3. Where are the cops?
This could be murder. Champion was to be the Leader of the band next year.
