    Re: Cheering Mom Arrested At Graduation - Right Or Wrong

    Having fun has been against the law for quite some time now. It's a ****ing shame. I got popped for playing my guitar too loud, with a Mariachi band, in Fairield California, in 1987. $5 Bens for the lawyer, case dismissed.

    This woman was experiencing elation is in her own way. Can't have that!

So...the graduation takes a few minutes longer. Tragic.
    Some graduating classes have hundreds of students. If you couldn't hear the name of your child announced because the previous child's family was making a ruckus would you be angry?

    If you want to cheer your child's accomplishments and celebrate to your hearts content - throw a graduation party for them.

    A very small contingent of people should not ruin a ceremony for the larger masses.

    now come on, this woman wasn't hurting anybody. I can't believe she got arrested. That's outrageous - she can't have been the only one cheering. People are too obssessed with laws and discipline these days and I just think everyone really needs to ease up.

    Anal thing to do

    Butt, it sounds like lyrics to a country song...

    chorus
    They're locking your momma up for cheering
    They're locking your momma up for cheering
    They're locking your momma up for cheering
    They're locking your momma up for cheering ....

    refrain
    and I was like that isn't right
    because other people were cheering
    and they didn't lock them up tight...

    I imagine that other more sedate people were upset by her over the top behavior.... a lttle bit of self control pleazzzzze?

    The police action seems correct to me.

    And if the families of the students unfortunate enough to follow her daughter don't get to hear their students name called, well that's just too bad for them, huh? Rudeness and selfishness seems to be an epidemic these days. As long as I can grab the spotlight, to hell with everybody else. Sad.

    Re: Cheering Mom Arrested At Graduation - Right Or Wrong

    i keep seeing "could not hear their own family member's name being called" as being the reason for objecting to the parents' over the top celebration

    would you not have recognized your own kid walking across the runway to receive the diploma without that verbal introduction? so, you did not hear some stranger speak their name into the microphone. such a massive loss [/s]

    i am certainly not condoning stupid people acting the fool at graduations. fortunately, did not see this at the university level here, but those low rent families over-react as if they have never been to one before. and from the looks of them, that is quite possibly the reality. let them enjoy their all too rare moments of celebration and be glad they are not going home with you

    so, yes, arresting her was excessive - unless she was ignoring security's efforts to prevent her from going onto the floor with the students

    when my youngest graduated from HS five years ago there was one of these families shouting excessively and carrying on. and the man behind them started throwing punches. arrests then all around. (yep, i live in the south ... bet you already guessed that - or maybe DE-troit)

    Re: Cheering Mom Arrested At Graduation - Right Or Wrong

    A few of us at my graduation last year were told to cheer louder for our friends as they walked across stage before us.(The PO department was small, and a lot of us were friends and hung out a lot outside of class.)

    "...officers walked her across the Florence Civic Center, where the graduation ceremony was being held, in full view of everyone."

    No one here has any reason to feel proud. The graduation became a spectacle for all concerned, except the graduates who's work and celebration was overshadowed by the woman and the police. Poor police procedure here, they should have waited a reasonable time for the overzealous mother to come off the stage.

    You don't scream and holler at weddings, Christenings, funerals nor in movie theaters.. You don't scream and holler in lecture halls or in church or in school..

    The woman is an idiot.
