Don't know if many Canadians know about this, so I'll sum it up. A Rutgers student, Dharun Ravi was found guilty of spying on his gay roommate in order to "out" and "shame" him for being gay....Also a good amount of evidence that Dharun whose parents are apparently quite wealthy looked down on Tyler Clementi (his roommate) for not being as affluent as him, but U.S. law right now doesn't consider "hating the poor" to be a crime at the moment.
Anyways after months of bullying Clementi was driven past the breaking point & committed suicide due to the spying, bullying, and hate directed at him by Dharun. Ravi was accused of 15 counts after using a webcam to spy on roommate Tyler Clementi's dorm-room tryst with another man in 2010.
The AP is reporting he faces 10 years in prison on the most serious convictions. He is also at risk for deportation to India, where he was born, sources are reporting.
What do you think? Personally I think there was a lot more that the law courts could have done & that 10 years is a pittance for effectively taking someone's life because you refused to respect his existence. They should have tried to lay more charges on him and at least charge him with manslaughter or murder imho.
