(CNN)Four people who cheered -- allegedly excessively -- for their loved ones at a high school graduation ceremony in Senatobia, Mississippi, say they've now been slapped with an excessive punishment.

Crucify?? Did you even read the article or just the headline?

Kids names were missed and families left because of these people yelling!
The superintendent told the audience to hold all cheering until the end.
Because of outbursts in the past, they had police here to escort people out who had an outburst to let everyone hear their families names being called out...

These people were in the wrong, they should have shut their big mouths like they were asked in respect to the rest of the families in attendance who wanted to hear their families name being called out also...

You are a clown if you feel someone needs "crucified" over this...

My son graduated high school last Saturday, and despite letters being sent home saying no air horns, conduct yourself accordingly, etc. and despite the same being said prior to the start of the event, I heard no less than 25 air horns out of about 500 kids graduating. The people who did that in spite of multiple warnings are just plain idiots, and disturbed the event. If I was in front of someone who had used it, they would have gotten an earful from me. If you want to blow an air horn, or be ridiculously loud, do it after the ceremony, in your house.

I completely understand why they were arrested.
I have attended graduation exercises for several High School graduates over the last few years. They have announced before the ceremony begins and have printed in the bulletin that applause are to be held until after all of the diplomas have been presented.
Yet there are groups of people that can not contain themselves and scream, whoop and holler when their family member is announced. The noise that they make drowns out the speaker announcing the next person.... which might just be my child, while I am recording the moment on video.

Should have just kicked them out of the graduation. I see no reason why criminal charges should be pressed. That is excessive. Especially for a one line outburst. I understand that the superintendent reiterated several times about holding applause until the ceremony was over and even put a note in the program about it, but still, emotions are high at these things. Family members are excited for their kids walking across the aisle. Like I said, just throw them out. Criminal charges were unnecessary.

And this:

(removed quote after OP edited)
treads very close to breaking T&C's (in my opinion) by calling out a member by name. You might want to strike that part.

FYI, OP, singling out a member and calling him a disinfo agent is against the T&Cs. Despite asterisks, we all know who you mean. Suggest you either edit your post or expect mod justice in 3-2-1...

edited. no suggesting to other members. was trying to communicate with him and didn't know it was t&c violation, or that others would have known who i was talking about. my mistake, and i appologize. i'm sure the user will be here to flame shortly and i see he will get the point and no longer be able to use his tactics here.

Do you find it odd, it's only one family?

Or is it just one family speaking up?

When I first read the article, it appeared to be multiple families, but now that I reread it. It is one family. The article only mentions two of the people charged though. We don't know who the last two are.

Though other parts of the article suggest that there may be multiple families involved. I'm not entirely sure which is the case. Perhaps the two mentioned are related to the one girl and the other two are with other families and since they aren't related to the first family, CNN didn't contact them about an interview.

These people fully understood the rules, the reasons for the rules and knew ahead of time that there would be consequences for their behavior. They thought that consequence would just be getting escorted out. They admitted that this was an acceptable consequence to them in the video, and proceeded to break the graduation ceremony rules anyway, fully expecting to get escorted out. And why not? My kid is off the stage now, his part is done. Let's whoop and holler and go home. The heck with everyone else.

Now they are shocked they are being busted for disturbing the peace. On one hand, it does seems a little harsh, but the school has been battling excessive behavior at the graduation ceremony for years. If the lighter consequences they have set forth don't work, they need to step it up a notch. They are sending a strong message to the audience for next year's graduation. Respect the school, respect the students. If these people understood "respect" they wouldn't be served.

if you believe someone opening their mouth justifies criminal charges, i know what you deserve. no difference in that and a bully shutting your mouth because he didn't like what you said.

you a bully by chance?

I do. Because the same thing happens every year. Some bunch act like they just won the lottery and completely disrupt the ceremony. Maybe this will put a stop to this nonsense but they'll have a new crop to deal with next year and I hope they do the same. If you can't keep your mouth shut stay at home. If anyone blew an air horn in my ear they would be having it removed from their colon along with my shoe.

We were told the same thing when my grandson graduated. To respect each student, not to be loud, or disruptive, etc. Most did. I don't know if any action was taken against those who didn't.

Everyone was also told to stay seated until the end, so as not to disrespect the students near the end. That did not happen.

Fortunately, my grandson was the very last one. Everyone, who did stay seated went crazy, giving him a loud, cheering send off.

It was awesome!

Criminal charges is ridiculous people...

Kick them out sure, but to press charges is crazy.

I find it crazy that people are accepting of charges.

That's the thing. How do you teach a lesson to the parents when it is likely that there will be a new crop of parents attending next year? That is unless parents from the previous year had a child a year younger.

I think it is unlikely that the parents of the following year are paying attention to the events that transpired in this year, and if they are, they will likely forget about them 365 days from now.

Question is, did they do something besides cheering, etc.

Did they get belligerant with authorities or something? Just seems there must be more to this story.
