    Default Ridiculous cyberbulling trial

    Man seen kissing Tyler Clementi on webcam expected to testify today in Rutgers spying case | NJ.com

    This trial is absolutely ridiculous. This story has been front page news for months. The defendant is on trial for cyberbulling biased hate crimes by using his computer webcam and airing his college roommate kissing a same sex visitor........There isn't enough room now in NJ prisons for all the real criminals.

    Would you change your opinion if you had a family member video you in your house while you thought you were alone, and you were doing something that could be considered strange, embarrassing etc....

    Then they posted it on this site or YouTube.

    Well, that is not right at all but at the same time, I see what 2631 is saying about no room in the prisons. I guess it just isn't one of those black and white situations again. Darn, why are so many things like that

    Yep, your right. I started thinking about it after I signed off and that would really upset me to be video taped without me knowing it!! Way too much invasion of privacy anymore.

    They were sharing a dorm room. And Akmed was worried about all of his expensive computer equipment with a stranger in the room. I can't imagine what this dog and pony show is costing the taxpayers just to playcate the gay community.... What was done may be morally wrong but IMO is not a crime

    Prosecutors allege that Ravi intentionally set up the webcam to humiliate his gay roommate, but his lawyer contends that Ravi is not prejudiced, though he acted childish.

    2631, this is a pretty serious the guy committed suicide. So when you share a dorm room you say you loose your legal right to privacy? I say you would he he did the acts in front of his dorm room mate. But it did not happen that way.

    2631 you have first hand witnessed cyber bullying in the past few weeks. That was part of my daughters issues. This is real and as real as a bully in the lunch room.

    Wow Jimmy, that is not good. My daughter went through it too a couple of years ago. With her cell phone and My Space. I think all this technology brings out the people that are cowards and feel big behind a cell phone or computer screen.
