(CBS/AP) SANFORD, Fla. - Prior to a march and rally to be held marking one month since a Florida teenager was fatally shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer, the parents of Trayvon Martin defended their son and decried reports that offered contrary accounts of the confrontation.
Speaking after a community forum held at a Baptist church in Eatonville, the parents were emotional in the wake of a news report published in the Orlando Sentinel that said George Zimmerman had been attacked by the 17-year-old, and an Associated Press report that Trayvon had been suspended from school because of an empty plastic baggie found in his book bag which tested positive for traces of marijuana.
"Even in death, they are still disrespecting my son," said Tracy Martin, "and I feel that is a shame."
"They've killed my son, and now they're trying to kill his reputation," said Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton.

Was Dad’s girlfriend there?
It’s going to get worse when the truth actually comes out that contradicts the Alinsky propaganda campaign the parents encouraged and participated in.
your son died trying to be a gangsta, just like millions of others before him, and in the process saved the justice system millions over his lifetime.
be thankful that you can now patent his name (as she is now seeking to do) and make some money off his death, mom.
Just heard the audio on WABC. Her kid ruined his own reputation with this story. Why wasn’t the kid arrested rather than suspended from school?
Oh, so now “THEY” killed her son?
Which “THEY” is she refering to?
I think it’s past the time of ramping it up any further.
This whole tragedy was caused by some “white” dude taking away some poor defenseless African-American’s Skittles.
No Mom, your culture destroyed you and your kid!
This $hit just keeps getting more and more stupid with each passing moment and the race hustlers just keep raising the ante.
The script is being acted out almost on cue.
Oh, the baggie. I thought she meant the homosexual rumors.
Facts can be inconvenient. Sounds like her boy was a thug.
It's not a big deal anyway...hell, Obama was doing coke and his fans never cared...likely thought it was "cool".
Is Sharpton (Obama “partner”) attempting to merge protests with OWS?

This father also made statements early on that his son definitely was killed because of the color of his skin.
I definitely will give some space to a dad whose son was killed. Then again this dad is marching and seeking exactly what from the nation?
Has anyone seen the interview of Zimmerman’s extremely well dressed and well spoken, sincere black friend who says George acted in self defense, cried for days over this, and did not want to kill anyone?
Zimmerman, a racist skittle junkie! That's why the last words Treyvon heard were "Taste the lead Rainbow, homeboy!"
A bunch of race baiting permanent victim-hood types tried this crap in Buffalo after a nightclub shooting eliminated a bunch of scum from the gene pool.
They went after the media for publishing all the various arrests and convictions of some of the “victims”. As usual the screaming big mouths disappeared in a couple of weeks back into the shadows with the rest of the cockroaches.
Seems their innocent babies were more like vermin.
