School superintendent, Jay Foster, asked spectators at Senatobia High School in Senatobia, Miss., not to yell out and to hold their applause until the end of the graduation ceremony.

Four people ignored the request, and a week later were served papers for disturbing the peace, and then were told they would be arrested.

Foster, decided the high school graduation needed to be treated with respect and decorum and felt he had to follow through with the arrests.

He said, "The goal was to allow all graduates to have the privilege of hearing their name called, plus the warning was in the program."


One of the individuals cited was Henry Walker who said, "It's crazy!. The fact that I might have to bond out of jail, pay court costs, or a $500 fine for expressing my love, it's ridiculous man, it's ridiculous!"

Foster didn't think it was ridiculous at all after he reminded the audience over and over again to hold their applause until after the ceremony was completed. What do you think?

Did the Superintendent go too far?
