        A woman, Shannon Cooper, was arrested from her daughter's high school graduation for being disruptive.

        "I am still living in shock," Cooper told msnbc.com. "It all seems like a bad dream, a nightmare of what was to be one of the happiest days of our lives. I cheered for my baby and I got the cuffs."

        The school has sent letters and all attendees were warned to behave during the ceremony. Everyone wants to be able to hear their loved one's name called as they cross the stage.

        Said Cooper: "Disorderly conduct? What's the disorderly conduct? How was I so disorderly you know any different from just a happy parent? It was a lot of hard work to get my baby to this point, you know? I wanted to celebrate. I wanted to shout out my joy.

        Do you think cheering at a graduation is disruptive and arrest worthy? How much is too much?

          How riduculous.  It is a proud moment for a parent...I know cos I've been there and all you want to do is shout and cheer as pride (I know...it's a sin) overwhelms you.  This is just absurd.

          I can't believe that happened. Poor woman, she didn't deserve that. Are we going to forbid any short moments of happiness now?

          I think the school over reacted by putting that rule that parents cannot cheer for their kids. heck I'd have cheered the MOTHER for pushing her kid to graduate!

          This is just ridiculous.... but, it is one thing for the school to be so rigid that they would make this rule, uptight old sots that they might be... what I really can't believe is that then the police held this woman in handcuffs and took her to jail and charged her with a crime?!!!?

          We were instructed not to cheer when names were called.

          I can see the point.  It was annoying to hear a group hollering and blowing horns when their childs name was called.  The names are announced without pause and you can't hear the next several names. 

          When someone shouted at my daughters graduation, everyone thought... someone needs attention.

          To be arrested for it...absurd.

          Yeah the mugshots were a little extreme. I do think that some are a bit over the top 
          Here's a news story on her and another graduate. Poor kids. Pathetic!

          I'd like to know where on the books there is such a law that cheering is illegal. I didn't know that schools could write their own laws and have people arrested. Is cheering really considered "Disorderly Conduct"?

          Although i think  a  VERY severe action was taken, i can see both sides for the parents. The excitement of seeing your child graduate how can ya not cheer, but when your child is up next and you can't hear the next few names called i can see that would be bothersome.

          Cheering at graduations has gone on forever and a day and it will never end. Its part of the graduation ceremony.

                      Okay,  that must've been an extremely rowdy-ass celebration or that is one of the most uptight school districts I've ever heard of.    Man,  it's just a happy parent.  Couldn't they have just looked the other way?  How much time and energy and money was wasted simply booking this woman for a victimless "crime"?
