disturbing event at UCLA Library

I don't know who's seen this, but wow, how rediculous, how disturbing, how not okay:

here's an artical that goes with it:

I think that one of the worst parts of the entire event is that everyone stands around watching, waiting for someone else to do something, which means of course that no one does anything. Students protest, words are exchanged, but no one out of all those students really DOES anything.
