A Rutgers University student who apparently committed suicide was the unknowing target of an internet broadcast showing him in a sexual encounter, New Jersey authorities said Wednesday.
Two other Rutgers students have been charged with invasion of privacy after they allegedly placed a camera in 18-year-old Tyler Clementi's dorm room without his knowledge and then broadcast lementi's sexual enounter, according to the Middlesex County prosecutor's office.
"If the charges are true, these actions gravely violate the university's standards of decency and humanity," Rutgers President Richard L. McCormick said in a statement Wednesday.
once in a while, there are just bad seeds. it might not be the parents fault. sometimes you can do everything in your childs best interest and 1 out of 4 will be bad anyway.
This country is a melting pot and nobody should feel ashamed of who they ard or what they believe.
haha thats life. its a pain and only the strong live and the weak die. and this kid is weak
Manslaughter comes to mind
jeff may I correct you? According to you this kid is weak. Sorry but he wasnt weak but just pushed to a breaking point. What a way to remember this young man. I hope you have a great day
tomcat, what do you mean by this, so for you, doing wrong thing was OK, but if someone showed what you were doing is not OK ? I think they are same.
I would have serious problem with this if these stupid college kids have broadcasted a video of a married couple of something of that nature. to me, both are wrong. One kid murdered the humanity .. while other 2 did same for a human.
tomcat you can be 100 percent involved in your childs life from birth on and sometimes there is just a bad seed. 1 of 4 children raised the exact same could just make bad decisions that doesnt have anything to do with thier upbringing.
They put a camera in his room...just like watching him without telling him, this happens all the time in college except now he has taken his life, its very tragic but to blame it all on the kids without knowing what this guy was going through is a bit of a rush to judgement
@ tomcat Oh yes cuz life in the usa is so hard with going to collage and making a better life for yourself. you ppl make me sick i can go to any 3rd world country and find a young man that would do ANYTHING just for a shot at what that weak fool gave up on.
We can be so mean to other people let love abide to others our condolence and orayers to the family. BE STRONG!
if he was ashamed of being gay.....shouldn't have been messing around with another dude....i have absolutely no respect for people who kill themselves....its a selfish act to do....no one is to blame for his actions but himself.
If someone illegally watching leads to suicide, we would all be dead.
I totally agree with joel.if the guy was ashamed of being gay,he should ve straightened up.i wont kill myself if i was videotaped with a girl.he was selfish,a regretable loss though.
Let's just all learn something from it.
What they did was wrong in many ways. As a nation we need to grow up and let people live their lives.
