    I'm not surprised by things anymore, are you?

    South Carolina mom arrested for cheering too loudly at daughter’s graduation

    Police say they warned parents they would be kicked out if they got loud.

    By Erik Ortiz / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    Beach balls and bullhorns are commonly banned from graduation ceremonies, but some schools also want to silence the screaming — going so far as to have overzealous audience members arrested.

    That’s what reportedly happened to South Carolina mom Shannon Cooper, who was accused of whooping so loudly during her daughter’s high school graduation Saturday night that cops charged her with disorderly conduct and placed her in a detention center.

    “Are ya’ll serious? Are ya’ll for real? I mean, that’s what I’m thinking in my mind,” Cooper told WPDE NewsChannel 15 in Myrtle Beach. “I didn’t say anything. I was just like OK, I can’t fight the law. “

    Cooper said she didn’t act any differently than other families when their children’s names were called during the South Florence High School ceremony.

    your awareness is off the meter. you raise an excellent point here. this is what I call an ironic oxymoron. Here it is the mother is arrested for being over-zealous for cheering on what in essence is the achievement of her children being programmed in this "educational" system.

    Nothing should shock us anymore.

    Anthony Cornist, Popular High School Senior, Denied Diploma Because Of Excessive Cheering

    High school senior
    Anthony Cornist from Ohio is living proof that, yes, it is possible to be too popular -- and that you could be punished for it. When the well-liked football player's name was called at graduation, his friends and family cheered so loudly that the student was denied his diploma.
    "I did nothing wrong except walk across the stage," Cornist told local news station WCPO 9.
    But school administers did not share the crowd's enthusiasm. In fact, the noise proved too much for them and Cornist was handed a letter from the principal
    instead of a diploma. The letter said that his diploma would be held in the principal's office because of the disruption.
