FAMU Students March On Governor's Mansion

Students protest call for president to resign
The FAMU "Marching 100" may be in limbo right now, but that's not stopping students from doing a march of a different variety.
Florida governor Rick Scott recommended that FAMU's board of trustee's suspend university president James Ammons amid the controversy surrounding a hazing incident that left drum major Robert Champion dead last month.
Obviously unhappy with such action, a group of students marched to the governor's mansion voicing displeasure and chanting "we've got questions, you've got answers."
"We are not going to leave," said Breyon Love, the FAMU student body president, reports CNN. "Mr. Governor, with all due respect, we will be here all night, all day tomorrow until you apologize or rescind that recommendation."
To that, Scott responded via megaphone: "I want the best thing for FAMU. I want the best thing for the FAMU family. I want the best thing for the great state of Florida."
This coming from the same man who passed a law making it mandatory that all welfare recipients pass a drug test to be approved for benefits.
