Brawl Erupts At Kindergarten Graduation Ceremony
CBS) ^ | Jun 24, 2010 8:30 am US/Pacific

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (CBS) ― Click to enlarge1 of 1 Several mothers got into a verbal confrontation during a kindergarten graduation ceremony at Puesta Del Sol Elementary School.

Joyful graduation ceremonies are being held across Southern California, but one -- for kindergartners -- turned into a vicious brawl between parents.

Several mothers got into a verbal confrontation Wednesday during a kindergarten promotion ceremony at Puesta Del Sol Elementary School in Victorville.

The altercation, which took place in a field near the ceremony, turned physical, according to San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Karen Hunt.

Several men then jumped into the fray and the incident turned into a brawl. Hunt says arriving deputies didn't see any physical contact.

There were no arrests and no injuries reported.

"I saw a big group of grown-ups fighting," said Taylor Raymond, a sixth grade student at the school.

The school was placed on lockdown and students were ushered to separate classrooms as police tried to find the parents involved in the fight.

As a result of the brawl, the school's ceremony for sixth graders has been canceled.

"She worked hard this year, you know? And it's her day. And for them to take that away from her is hurtful," Raymond's mother said.

Fearful of more problems, the school's principal, Christa Erolin, sent a letter to parents that said "no parents will be allowed on campus for end of the year activities."

But after reading the story I guess it doesn’t apply.

IMHO Kindergarden graduations are just stupid. I mean really do they really need this much congratulations for learning what one learns in Kindergarden? Most would be happier with a trip to the Dairy Queen to celebrate.

I was going to make a wise-@$$ comment about Victorville’s ethnic make-up but you beat me to it. California has been lost - and soon, we taxpayers throughout the nation will get to pay for those free lunches.

What an annoying story. What were they fighting about? What were the points of dispute? Who started it? Lousy reporting.

It’s been a long time since I (or even my kids) attended kindergarten, but I don’t remember it as being all that hard.

Shocking that you’d see this at a school filled with peace loving illegal immigrants. Guess they are just here to start the riots that Americans won’t start.

Those facts are all left out for this reason, any futher information would confirm it was all illegal aliens, the reason would, the points of conflict would and so on, there is no doubt about it

I just went to my daughter’s 5th Grade Graduation Ceremony.

Back in my day, we had ONE graduation, and that was High School Graduation.

Here in Indiana, they have free school lunch in the summer when school isn’t even in session. Not sure if that is a local thing or not?

That comment was about a sixth-grade graduation ceremony, which will not be held because of the uproar at the kindergarten graduation.

No, they do it here in Arkansas too—heck, some of the local schools even serve breakfast during the summer too. I am sure most of these kids are on the free lunch program too, as well as receiving food stamps. It warms my heart to see how well my tax dollars are being used to provide for kids whose parents can’t figure out how to make a PB&J sandwich or open a box of cereal. </s>

I get a little cynical because my husband and I squeeze pennies to send our kids to Catholic school and we get to pay for all the rest of society’s children as well.

I agree that the graduations are just a way for the school admin to push their bs thoughts. That happened at my grandkids grad for 6th grade. I wanted to puke. Even gave an obeeee award with a letter from him. He should win the war and plug the leak.

According to comments in the Victorville paper, it was two women fighting over a man. Example number 3,457 illustrating why California is no longer a part of the United States and actually is a Third World country inhabited by and run by Third World peasants.

You're right, it's getting rediculous, it's just like the "Whooping Cough" outbreak in California, they don't admit it's an illegal alien problem, to be honest, the entire media in this country are traitors.

I saw no Latino faces in the news reports. We don't have any facts, so it's best not to comment on the racial or ethnic backgrounds of the participants in this story. Sorry, but I won't blame everything on illegal immigration. We grow enough zany crazies here at home and have enough problems caused by the porous borders to take on any additional goofiness. Heck, we've got folks running the country and fighting wars who can't manage to solve their differences -- it's all crazy.

Well, they had to have a kindergarten graduation ceremony because it’s the last formal education that most of these kids are ever going to bother with.

I posting something to that effect on the San Francisco paper’s website, and amazingly they left it up. Thing is, every day the media does something to illustrate how incredibly stupid they think we are. And every day we notice. Read about how USA Today is getting ready for another round of lay-offs and smile. :)
