What are your thoughts on the community response to the staged sexual assault?
“I think everyone was really disappointed in that kind of thing. Everyone was just let down because it’s a real problem and for someone to trivialize it is unfair.”
“Since it was false, I thought they overdid it. A lot of people were still talking about it and prevention wise, it gave Santa Cruz a false stigma now that we have to deal with.”
“I think the community was outraged that we were kind of misled to think that it happened. A lot of people were afraid … for a while and they wasted all of their time being afraid. I feel like it created a lot of fear.”
“It kind of surprised me that this was the only sexual abuse that … was given attention on campus. It can’t be the only one. I know for a fact that it’s not the only one.”
