Black Families Could End Up Behind Bars For Cheering During Graduation Ceremony

Four Mississippi families all black could possibly end up in jail all because they cheered for their loved ones during a college graduation.

Wreg.com reports that during a graduation ceremony in Northwest Mississippi Community College police officials asked the attendants to keep it low and only cheer after all graduates have been given their accolades.

Four families which failed to contain their joy were escorted out of the ceremony and weeks later were served with papers ordering them to appear in court for cheering too loudly during the ceremony.

They are due in court where they will face a charge of disturbing the peace on Monday, 9 June.

Excuse me but don’t these officers have real ‘peace disturbers” outside the graduation house to arrest?
