All Kinds of Wrong? But WHO is Wrong?

The left-leaning blog TDW has called a court case concerning a college student, Ravi, who secretly filmed his gay college roommate Clementi having sex with another man and then posting it and creating a Twitter feed, "All kinds of Wrong." 

Clementi later jumped off a bridge to his death and Ravi faced up to 10 years in prison for his death. The judge instead sentenced Ravi to 30 days in jail, community service and counseling.

Here's my take; what's yours?

The issue of homosexuality aside, what Ravi did was wrong, yes. But what Clementi did was even more wrong. He selfishly put his loved ones throughout the pain of his pointless death. Rather than standing up for who he is, fighting bullies like Ravi, standing up for his rights and the rights of others, Clementi chose to jump off a bridge.

If Clementi wasn't already mentally ill, which would be the only possible excuse for his final act, he was a coward.

I agree...suicide is a cowardly act. I don't understand why this kid offed himself when homosexuality seems to be so celebrated as of late...especially at a college.

Ravi was wrong to do what he did and I'm sure he didn't plan on his roommate taking a leap off the George Washington bridge as a result of his stupid stunt.

I also think Clementi had issues before this happened because suicide is a serious step to take out of the blue.
