Anthony Cornist was given 20 hours of community service after his family was 'excessively cheering' at graduation.
Does anyone remember Obama turning the memorial speech in Arizona into a motivational cheering assembly by not quieting the crowd? He actually could have quieted the crowd and was not held responsible for the crowds inappropriate behavior. Why would a graduate be penalized for other people's behavor?
How can they hold a gradauate responsible for peers'/family's/enemies' behavior? Is that legal?
Graduation is not church. You don't have to be reverant. This is the most ridiculous story i've heard in a long time.
Brett...just how much time do YOU want to spend at a graduation ceremony? If everyone acted the same way this family did, the ceremony would balloon to between 5-8 hours...is that okay with you...would YOU be willing to sit still for that long...when, exactly is it okay to tell large crowds to act with some decorum so ALL graduates get an equal chance for their famililes to enjoy their moment too? It only sounds ridiculous until you actually take the time to think about it...this is a ceremony for hundreds of students...not just one...save that for your personal celebrations afterwards
