  1. I was walking not too far in front of the two guys that were jumped. First I want to say it was not right that they were jumped. My friends and I saw these two who were jumped several days or weeks in a row doing extremely inappropriate things in the cafeteria. I don’t think it matters whether it’s a man and woman, 2 men, or 2 women, PDA, especially to that extreme, IS NOT OKAY. There were many people talking about it and they didn’t think it was right. I thought about going up to them and asking them to please go out to their car or somewhere private. But I didn’t, my friend and I left and then a few minutes later we heard yelling, walked back around the corner and saw those two guys on the ground. Like I said, they didn’t deserve to get beat up. In my opinion, they were begging for attention and it’s unfortunate for them, that’s what they got.
