    This sends a message to all people who illegally tape you in your intimate moments, then use it to mock you to the world. GO AHEAD, you'll only have to spend 30 days in the slammer. Have fun bashing those gays!

    Thanks to Dan Savage who didn't want much jail time for Ravi. Dan, it doesn't GET BETTER if you let bashers go scott free.

    I think the main issue with the court was the invasion of privacy. i believe it was 5 years in jersey and they wanted to increase it to 10 which is still crazy since most places are up to 1 year and a fine

    What Ravi did was wrong but the media hyped it up to the extreme and basically treated this situation as if it was a murder trial.

    In a way Ravi sentence is somewhat fair.

    If invasion of privacy is five years, and this was MORE than that because he then Broadcasted it, why is 30 days fair? That's ludicrous.

    I think it's fair, I don't think he was a homophobe and it wasn't a hate crime. I do think he was a douche for doing it, he just didn't realize the consequences of his actions. icon_neutral.gif

    He showed absolutely no remorse over Clementi's suicide, even jokingly tweeting when he found out Clementi commited suicide. He NEVER showed remorse or apologized, as stated by the judge today.

    Are you kidding me?

    He should have been charged with (and convicted of) violation of USC 18, 2257, for not having proper records of those he filmed to prove they're at least 18 years of age.

    If a porn company filmed someone without that paperwork, the owner would be up for 15-20 years.

    A guy was just ordered to pay $675,000 for downloading 30 songs. Ravi has to pay $10,000.

    If you idiots think that's fair, think if Clementi was one of your best friends. How would you feel then knowing that someone struggling with their sexually (he just came out to his parents a few weeks prior) was taped and broadcasted and humilitated. What if it happened to you?

    And to say that Ravi was not homophobic is a LIE. He tweeted how icking it was for a guy to be with a guy, and the fact that he went so far as to get on Clementi's computer and search to see if he was gay or not..........GOD, KNOW THE FACTS!

    "Berman ordered Ravi to receive three years of probation, perform 300 hours of community service, undergo counseling and pay a $10,000 fine that will go to an organization providing assistance to victims of bias crimes.

    The judge also recommended that Ravi not be deported.

    In the proceedings leading up to the judge's sentencing, the prosecution and defense got to make statements in open court. Ravi's mother cried as she read an emotional statement about the toll this ordeal has taken on her son.

    "The smile and bright eyes are gone from his face," Sabitha Ravi said, as her son also wept.

    Since his arrest, Dharun Ravi has lost more than 20 pounds and rarely socializes with his friends, Sabitha said."

    But he's still alive, unlike his former roommate. May this haunt him the rest of his life and career.

    I also think that if I was someone who played a stupid and tasteless joke on someone which resulted in them taking their own life how would I feel if the media found a way to take everything I said or did in the past to use that as fuel to imply bias intimidation and being the MAIN REASON of someone elses death. I understand that there have been movements to stop phrases like "that's so gay" or associating the word gay with negative connotations but how many people in their late teen years fully considered their actions and their consequences?

    All i'm trying to say is that there are multiple sides to every story. It's hard to see that in this case because the way the media spins the story and how quick everyone is willing to jump on the bandwagon

    The media didn't hype it up near as much as the guy who killed himself. If anything, they didn't hype it up enough!

    Tyler did take it to the extreme but I don't know what was going on in his life prior to the events that resulted in his suicide. At the same time, the media hyped it up. Enough to put all the blame on Ravi.

    Even without a huge jail sentence, Ravi punishment is severe enough because now he will have to deal with all of the people who simply despise him which is on a macro level and people do crazy shit and I doubt he will get as much protection as Casey Anthony did

    Frankly, I would deport his ass. I think having to return to India after living the grand life in America would be quite a punishment icon_rolleyes.gif

    I just told Dan Savage he was partially to blame. He lobbied for a lenient sentence, now says 30 days is way too lenient. He thought excessive jail time would not solve the problem of gay bashing and harassment. Well, jail time doesn't exactly solve the problems of robbery and murder, either. Shall we give them 30 days too? I told him, "give a homophobic judge a mile, he'll take it."

    I think Ravi should have received 5 years in prison, then deportation.
