AP Enterprise: FAMU emails detail repeated warnings about band hazing, failure to stop it
By The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) ' Hundreds of pages of records show years of repeated warnings about brutal hazing passed without any serious response from the Florida A&M University's leadership until last November's beating death of drum major Robert Champion.

The father of a freshman in Florida A&M University's famed marching band emailed the school's president in 2007 after getting a series of panic-stricken phone calls.

Donovan Crosby's email to James Ammons is part of the public records obtained jointly by The Associated Press and the Tallahassee Democrat.

Crosby and numerous other parents over the last several years wrote or called university administrators, band officials or police begging someone at FAMU to keep their son or daughter safe.

Emails show that the hazing was clearly known as a problem to various school officials.
