(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.

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.

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.
