Mom locked up for cheering at child's graduation
When I attended my son's graduation everyone had to go through a metal detector and all bags were searched by security. Many police were on the scene.
When I graduated High School, I don't remember any security. And it was considered common courtesy not to cheer and scream in a disruptive manner.
Shannon Cooper cheered as her daughter walked across the stage to get her diploma from South Florence High School Saturday night, but just minutes later, Shannon was handcuffed and arrested.
"Are ya'll serious? Are ya'll for real? I mean, that's what I'm thinking in my mind. I didn't say anything. I was just like OK, I can't fight the law. I can't argue with the police, but I'm like are you serious? I didn't do any more than the others did. Which I feel like no one should have went to jail," said Shannon.
