Mothers Say Sons Hazed at Florida A&M But Marching 100 Needs to Stay

Florida A&M University has reprimanded its school president for dismissing band director Doctor Julian White before the university trustees could give their input.

Meanwhile, two mothers of present members tell CNN's Don Lemon that they feared this would happen after notifying the university that certain members of the Marching 100 were mistreating their sons.
