Honestly, I am VERY surprised by this verdict.
When I first learned of the story I became sad & livid. I mean we can’t bring the victim back and this could have been prevented. His family and friends are without their loved one.
Anytime someone commits suicide it’s hard for me to fathom, so when I learned what triggered Tyler Clementi to commit suicide I became extremely sympathetic. Invested. Followed the story.
What Tyler’s roommate Dharun Ravi and friend did to him was pure WrongEvil. In my opinion. I think he knows that now .
Putting a webcam in his room without his permission, exploiting his private life without his permission online, making fun of him, calling him names, bullying and so much more is just wrong and goes against morality.
I mean where do we as humans get off thinking we are more superior than the next human being? Who in the hell told us this? When I hear of kids and adults who exemplify this behavior I have an extremely hard time sympathetizing with them…
So when i learned this young guy who was primarily responsible for Tyler’s death gets 30 days in jail I started to have mixed feelings about the verdict.
I need a hear your thoughts? What do you think should have been done? You can’t bring Tyler back, but was there are lesson that could have been taught? A lesson that could scare other humans who like to bully, tease, invade someone’s privacy, and go as far as commiting hate crimes into thinking twice about their actions?
What’s the solution.
Peace and love,
