Get arrested for cheering at graduation?

What they did might be disrespectful to the Superintendent, but falls way short of illegal. Police should have not carried through with this.

These educators need to be put jail for narcissism.

While I do agree that arresting these individuals is over the top, the incident does show a general lack of respect toward authority figures that many youth have today. Do I think this "punishment" will correct that? No.

However, if by some chance in the future, one of these individuals is commanded to get off of the street and onto a sidewalk by a police officer, they just may do it.

It's pretty insane... So what if they cheer. It's a happy day... Not a funeral. Some people even laugh and have a good time at funerals.

Do not cheer, clap shout, blow air horns, has been a common graduation command for awhile. i get why they do it. I heard it in Ann Arbor in 2000,2001 and 2004. My wife heard it in Grosse Pointe around that time too. Invariably a small handful of folks in a 400 plus graduation ceremony break the rule. Getting the cops involved is ridiculous.

Right, I know it's common and I agree the air horns are obnoxious but disturbing the peace?

I think the Superintendent ought to be placed in jail for being a complete, over-reactive jerk! Great post, Audiophile. I completely agree with you. The guy's a coward, too. He refused to speak to the media on camera. I hope someone leaves a bag of burning dog crap on his front door step.

Almost equally as disturbing is the fact police agreed to press charges. It's unbelievable that taxpayer resources are being wasted on something as trivial as this.

I do not understand the point you are attempting to make. You do realize it was the parents in the audience who were cheering and are now facing charges, right?

On the other hand wouldn't the superintendent be violating freedom of speech provisions of the constitution granted to each person in a public assembly?

What's next - removing larynx's of students?

Since it's a public school i.e. a government entity, the First Amendment would indeed apply.

Again, it was disrespectful, but falls far short of illegal.

"Youth" is relative. Compared to me, those parents are "youth". :razz

But, more importantly, respect and comportment are best taught by parents and adults that lead by example. How can we expect our youth to respect authority and exhibit appropriate social behavior (like doing what a law enforcement officer tells you to) when the people charged with raising them show them otherwise?

The superintendent said they would be escorted if they were disruptive...the guy escorted himself out...and that should been the end of it.

Superintendent broke his own rules.

In my opinion, clapping and whistling is disruptive to others speaking, one person saying "you did it baby" is not likely to be seriously disruptive while they are walking down the isle.
