Get Out My Soapbox

You know I do not like to get political....

I want everybody to get along....

I want criminals off the street....

But seriously, arresting a woman for cheering at her daughter's graduation?  I have been mumbling since I heard this story.  Ok, so they told the people not to cheer.  Big woop....and she cheered.

Well, lock her up and put her in a cell with a murdering child molester.

Really people!

Where did I put that chocolate?  I just cannot believe this....can't even cheer at a graduation...no talking about all the kids that drop out and don't graduate...are in jv detention......


***Edited....I am not saying she shouldn't have been confronted....I don't know and the paper doesn't say  how long or how loud she was......I am saying to arrest her and charge her with disorderly conduct is a bit over the top in my opinion.

I agree with you about the arrest part but when people continue to break the rules, what other way is there to ensure rules are not broken? I don't understand why grown men and women cannot respect the occasion and allow each parent to hear their child's name called. I understand the pride of seeing your child cross that stage because I have watched my 3 kids and my oldest grandchild graduate. Someone always has to break the rules.

On the other hand, how loud was her cheering? After years of bull horns, cow bells and loudmouths most graduations ask you to politely clap and wait to cheer at the end.
After 21 years of struggle to get my degree my poor family could not hear my name being called out because the family of the graduate before me decided to drown out the names of several graduates with their obnoxious behavior. Just a thought....:)

I haven't heard of this one. Perhaps she was cheering a wee bit too loud, but still? An arrest? Hmmm...

At my kiddos ceremony the guests were warned about shouting and cheering at inappropriate times. Security was everywhere. When someone broke the rule they were escorted from the building. I do not think they were arrested. But a zero tolerance for sure rudeness does help so that one can hear the names of the kiddos being announced.

HI!!
I AGREE!!!
I think to show their "We are not kidding approach" if you are caught screaming yelling or being obnoxious.....DRAG them out......but an arrest??????I agree....but I do know something has to be done to keep the cheers from happening...

It is crazy the things that they do! Did you hear about the girl who had been sentenced to several days in jail because she was tardy too many times. She is taking care of her siblings , is on the honor roll and has a job and sometimes oversleeps because of her schedule!

I do believe they should be called on it. If they break the rules and are being rude, take 'em outside. But, leave the arresting to someone BREAKING THE LAW...breaking the RULES isn't something to be arrested for....I don't think.
Crazy.
