This is worse than not allowing students to hug in the hallways.

PORTLAND, Maine - A Maine high school senior says he was denied his diploma because he bowed during graduation and blew a kiss to his mother.

Justin Denney was about to receive his Bonny Eagle High School diploma on Friday when he pointed at friends and relatives.

Schools Superintendent Suzanne Lukas ordered him back to his seat. She told the Portland Press Herald newspaper she was enforcing behavior rules.

Justin's mother, Mary Denney, said her son's showboating didn't break any rules. She told WMTW-TV "a kiss to your mom is not misbehavior." She is seeking an apology ó and a diploma for her son.

The commencement at the Cumberland County Civic Center also was disrupted when a giant inflatable rubber duck and beach balls were thrown. One student was ejected.

Some parents want a review of commencement policies.

Wow. Uppity Prudes running the graduation ceremony. Beach balls and stuff like that are tradition. Someone needs a good kick in the belly.

This is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. Legalism is the opposite of justice. The only reason law exists is so that justice can prevail, however this kind of extreme legalism does nothing but create injustice and scorn for the law.

The student blew a kiss to his mom, he didn't signal gang members to start a drive by shooting. A little bit of perspective is required here.
