This is like asking the offender passing sentence on himself.
The University is in desperate need of a hands-on Principal who could get rid of these self serving and self centred book keepers and administrators.

Any reasonable person will see this as the right course of action. 30-40 people illegally occupied a building, many of them not GU students, and left 7 months later without a single concession (despite their claims they were laughed at as management saw them off with decisions they had already taken...)
The report makes it clear that such illegal behaviour should not be tolerated again.

Dear Jack, You are missing the point. Whether the protesters were right or wrong is irrelevant. What is relevant is the inexcusable failure of the University’s Secretary of Court in dealing with a protest.

Well, GU eyes, the report makes it clear how things evolved. No single person could have controlled a situation where there were 40-50 maniacs protesting by using violence and claiming they were 'non-violent'. Good that the majority of the university community now know the occupiers were totally wrong. The report was very useful in putting the record straight.
