What laws and rights were violated?

Members of Students for Fair Tuition (SFT) decide to protest
rising tuition costs at Gigantic State University (GSU) by taking over Dunfee
Hall, the location of GSU president Dalton Chandlers office. As they storm
into the reception area of Chandlers office suite, shouting Down with fascist
tuition increases, Chandlers faithful secretary, Prudence Pimply, picks up a
phone to call the campus police. Steve Steel, radical leader of the SFT, slaps
the phone knocking it from Prudences hand without ever touching her. He then
pulls out an amazing lifelike squirt gun and threatens to blow Prudences head
off if she so much as moves an inch toward the phone or the door. Prudence
collapses in a sobbing heap on her desk. Unfortunately for their purposes, the
students find the only door to Chandlers third floor office locked from the
inside. After a few feeble attempts to break it down, they contend with
barricading his door with filing cabinets and singing We Will Overcome until
the police arrive shortly thereafter. The total time elapsed from the moment
the students entered the building until the police arrive is ten minutes.
President Chandler was taking a nap and slept through the entire incident.
Prudence was so upset that she couldnt return to work for a week, and then
only managed to do so under heavy doses of tranquilizers prescribed by her
doctor, Morton Mallard.

Consider the following when writing this essay:

Was a crime committed?

Who should be held liable for the damages (physical and
mental)?
Discuss the possible tort liability in this incident.
Assault, battery, infliction of emotional distress, and false imprisonment all
should be explored.

Case Study 2

Steve Simple is a pledge in Zeta Iota Tau (ZIT) fraternity
at Minor State Teachers College (MSTC). As part of his pledge duties, he is
sent to climb the campus water tower to repaint the fraternitys Greek letters,
which had faded in the last year ( the tower has been covered, virtually
throughout its existence, with graffiti placed on it by students). The night
Steve climbs the tower a tremendous thunderstorm is in progress, making the
steps quite slippery and exposing anyone climbing the tower to a great danger of
being hit by lightning. Fortified by a six-pack of Hudepohl beer ($1.89 warm at
the local convenience store), Steve nonetheless decides to make the attempt.
Unfortunately, Steve is electrocuted halfway up the tower by a short circuit in
the towers pumping mechanism. The short circuit was the result of a failure to
perform proper maintenance (this being deferred by MSTC so that it could pay
higher faculty salaries) and was something that had happened before (although
only pigeons had been fried in the past).

Discuss the potential liability of all parties in this case.
