    SC mom arrested for cheering too loudly at graduation - Live5News.com | Charleston, SC | News, Weather, Sports

    In one of the nations worst areas for public education (The "Corridor of Shame" in SC, Senator Robert Ford (D)'s district ironically), one woman couldnt hide her joy and pride seeing her daughter graduate high school!!! She cheered "My baby made it, yes!"

    And the govt, of course, cracked down, sent the men with guns up there and put her into handcuffs and off to jail.

    When this young lady got her diploma, she went out to find her mother and celebrate. She found her....in a police van, in handcuffs. She was not allowed to see or speak with her mom, who was being held in the van until transported to the jail.

    Government in action. Gotta love it.

    Rules are pesky things.


    Hell, that girl was probably the first one in 6 generations to graduate. Can't blame the mom.

    I understand "rules", which our society has gone fucking nuts with. We're gonna have a "rule" on how many times per minute I can breathe in order to conserve oxygen soon.

    It just seems there has to be a better way to do some shit. Like locking a woman up for having a messy yard, which happened in SC last year. Now locking up a woman for cheering for her kid graduating. Sure, it's the rule. Escort her out. 99% of people follow the rules like that. But JAIL???? REALLY? I say this as a former cop, who thinks we have a LOT of chicken shit laws that get dumped on cops to enforce, and put them into shitty situations like this when we as a society should grow the fuck up, behave ourselves, and stop running to the govt to do shit we should be doing on our own.

    I'd be mad if she wasn't forewarned, but she was.

    This is what our democratically-held elections are for.
    It was, obviously, the school board that made this rule. Yes it's a dumb rule.
    But they were elected to make these decisions.

    We can be heard at meetings and PTA conferences if certain rules are dumb.

    But we can't just up and say, "Well, that's a dumb rule. I'm not going to follow it" and then be surprised when there are consequences.

    She was probably more disruptive than the article suggests. But, serves the Afro-shit right, for being a supporter of tyrannical Democrat candidates.

    To request tickets, parents sign a letter saying, in part: “I understand that I am responsible for the conduct of myself, child and guests. Any disruptive behavior will result in my child’s diploma being held, and 20 additional hours of community service (must be) completed until it is awarded.”

    Seems pretty simple.

    If you don't like the rules, change them. Don't just decide which ones to follow

    My understanding was that all those in the audience were warned that if they cheered loudly, they would be escorted out. I did not hear anything about a warning that one would be subject to an arrest for disturbing the peace.

    That being said, I must assume that she resisted being escorted out...and that would warrant police action...

    However, the rule in itself is rediculous. One should be able to show as much jubilation at their childs graduation as they wish.
