The Miami Herald is reporting that Rep. Frederica Wilson, who represents Florida’s 17th District, will propose a federal anti-hazing bill when Congress returns from holiday. The Miami Democrat says that her proposal is designed to ensure that no one endures a beating like the one leading to the death of Florida A&M drum major Robert Champion last month.
Wilson announced her plans Tuesday. She is offering the bill in response to the hazing-related death of Champion, who was beaten during a hazing ritual for the Marching 100 during a band trip to the annual Florida Classic in Orlando. Wilson says that hazing is demeaning, dangerous and deadly and needs to be stopped.
