Opinion: Judge in FAMU band hazing ignores the law’s intent “regardless of a victim’s willingness to participate”

Editorial: I must write an essay immediately for publication as a journalist editorializing in non-layman’s language. But once again, a judge has forgotten the law on hazing –regardless of a participant’s willingness to participate. 3 FAMU band defendants get away with no jail time following death of beaten Robert Champion. It is not up to me to judge the defendants, but I do judge the judge. And find the letter of the law was disregarded in my opinion. The court erred and has set back justice in hazing cases, I believe. –Moderator Hank Nuwer
