The problem with stories like these (and the people that comment on them) Are that you`re only hearing one side of the story and her side at that, Truth is, we don`t know what happened, did they ask her to leave? Did they throw her out? Did she react poorly when they did?

Just saying, hear the whole story before you make assumptions, Short and simple it`s a rule placed to show respect for everyone, one she didn`t follow.

@Gerry That`s exactly what I was thinking.

When I graduated in 2009 the rule was there and the reason was because they didn`t want people to start cheering while they were trying to announce another persons name and then that person`s family couldn`t enjoy that moment. I understand being excited for someone to graduate but do it afterwards when you`ve got all the freedom to yell and scream.

@OldOllie They probably tried to throw her out, and she refused.

This is an ever more common behavior in people in the U.S. A complete lack of consideration for anyone but themselves. It doesn`t matter how much they disrupt or disturb other people or events, as long as they get what they want or do what they want. "Don`t be gettin up in my face n tellin me what to do. I do what I want!" mentality. But God forbid anyone inconvenience them.

"Manners" are the grease in societies wheels that allow us to get along without killing each other.

Reason no 422 to abolish government schools. The ONLY reason this became a law-enforcement issue is because it happened at a GOVERNMENT school. Had this happened at a private school, they could have thrown her out or not, depending on their policy.

If you want to send your kid to a school that allows parents to whoop and holler, that`s fine. On the other hand, if you want to send your kid to a school where parents are expected to comport themselves with dignity, that`s fine, too.

Yes, she acted like an ignorant hillbilly, but I`m sorry, there was no damned reason to get the cops and the courts involved in this.

An important chunk of the story has obviously been left out.

Basically, it goes from "Shannon [cheered] anyway," to "the officers took her to a police van," with nothing in between (aside from her rant).

Surely SOMETHING must have happened in there.

eddy - ranking is a fail? They check the mathmatecal and scietific knowledge of the graduating students. You know, those things they`re supposed to teach kids. We rank lower, it has nothing to do with a nations needs, our kids don`t learn as much.

I`m sure there`s a lot of reasons why. I`m not blaming the school alone. But you can`t correct any problem if you don`t acknowledge there is one.

They made the same announcement at my daughter`s graduation last weekend. They might as well have said, "Start the whooping and shouting." It`s High School, for crying out loud. They aren`t getting their master`s degree. Like Chris Rock said, "You`re SUPPOSED to graduate high school."

@Kain1 The police have a lot of things to do. This is one of them.

@Gerry1of1 I`m not arguing that the US`s education system is what it should be. It`s not by a long shot, but ranking the education system of an entire country (especially one as large as the US) is a FAIL in itself. The educational needs of one country might not be the same as that of another, so how is one able to compare the two?

eddy - US ranks 17th in education. Considering our resources, that`s a FAIL

I`m talking one or two examples per state. You`re being over dramatic about the whole thing. Also, with the somewhat recent common core curriculum adoption by most states, there will be a better way to ensure all public institutes are up to a nationally set standard. If we would stop wasting so much money on stupid things like military and even some unnecessary healthcare and pump even a little more money into starving education systems around the country, we would be in a lot better position. The problem is that there are just way too many pooty teachers and no resources to replace them.

@ eddy666 - I`m sure you can find one or two examples of good education in the US. But overall, it has failed by every measurable standard and each year test scores sink lower and lower.

It`s all about following the rules. The parents were informed of the rules.

She wants to not follow a simple instruction (things she`d learn in pre-school) then she gets to get thrown out..

Simple as that.. Drama Queen

@carmium She disobeyed the rules. The magnitude of her failure to adhere to the policies is irrelevant.

False. The education system has only failed in some areas(a lot, actually). I do know A LOT of public education districts that are EXTREMELY good though. To say it HAS failed is giving up. There are still ways to fix and improve the system.

@jamie76 Did you even watch the video or read the story? They told the parents not to cheer or be loud until the end. This dumb bitch disobeyed that. That`s why it`s disorderly conduct. It`s really not that hard to understand.

HER version is a regular cheer. I kinda suspect she was throwing an inappropriate fit of hooting and hollering and was asked to come out and cool down, and didn`t handle that well either. I would also guess that previous ceremonies have been badly disrupted by over-the-top carrying on that ruined OTHER people`s evenings. The only alternative explanation involves insanity on the part of the police, so place your bets.

@ Zeegrr60, This has nothing at all to do with freedom of speech/expression, it has everything to do with following the rules that were established and announced before the activity. Some people feel they are exempt from following rules and when they get in trouble for ignoring the rules they bitch about being treated unfairly. If she had kept her ghetto pie hole shut she wouldn`t have gotten arrested.

This country "has" failed.
At least the education system has at any rate.

High school graduation is an annoying tradition anyway. I guess this is as good as it going to get for some losers. It`s a celebration of mediocrity - wow, you did something that almost everyone else does because it`s so easy.

Good. I also agree with the bit from about a week ago where some of the parents and such were locked out for getting to the ceremony late. Take accountability for your actions and stop trying to play yourself as a victim. The only thing you are a victim of is your own irresponsibility.

This has always been the rule at any graduation ceremony I have ever attended. If you can`t follow the rule you have to face the consequences.

There should be no cheering or applause until the end of such a ceremony.
Not to damper anyone`s spirits, but to get out of the boring ceremonies as fast as possible to celebrate.
