What is wrong with this country when family cannot attend a high school graduation and cheer for their students’ accomplishments??

“Six people at Fort Mill High School’s graduation were charged Saturday and a seventh at the graduation for York Comprehensive High School was charged Friday with disorderly conduct, authorities said. Police said the seven yelled after students’ names were called.” (courtesy of Associated Press)

Now I knew South Carolina was one fucked up place to live because it was pure hell for me for a few months in 2005. Now I have no doubts.

“We think it’s important for every graduate’s name to be heard and for every person in the arena to be able to see that student cross the stage. … That’s why we have disruptive guests removed,” he said.

Would it be so bad to wait a few minutes for the noise to die down?? I have been to a few graduations and it’s not like they go on and on about it for 10 or 20 minutes. These people are being absurd.
