I have very mixed feelings about this tragic case. I don't think you can blame anyone but Tyler Clementi for killing himself. Suicide is a very complicated thing, and it's never just one thing that pushes people over the edge. What Dharun Ravi did was fucked up and beyond shitty, but I don't it's fair to say he caused Tyler to commit suicide. My grandmother killed herself shortly after her 50th birthday when her third husband announced he was leaving her -- and we never blamed Tom, regardless of what he may have said or done to her leading up to it. Her closest sister thinks it was just an impulsive decision that happened in a very dark moment. For those who say Tyler's suicide was the "direct result of bullying" I respectfully remind you that even after he was humiliated, he had the wherewithal to request a room transfer and had his sex date over for a repeat, which doesn't sound like the actions of a complete victim. He also took a very long bus ride into the city then got uptown to the bridge from which he jumped, which gave him a surprisingly large amount of time to think about what he was doing. His complicated relationship with his religious mother -- who seemed to reject him when he came out to her days before -- must have also weighed heavily on his mind, yet I would never in a million years blame her. That said, Dharun Ravi only served 20 days of a 30-day sentence for crimes that were not related to the suicide -- he was convicted of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and tampering with evidence and witnesses -- all of which he clearly did. That the statute under which he was charged has since been changed should not be let him off the hook, unless we're going to expunge everyone's record in states where marijuana is now legal who was ever convicted of pot possession. I have a friend who, I should note, is of Indian descent. She keeps saying to me that "Dharun's life is over" because of this conviction. Um, no it isn't. TYLER's life is over. What do you think -- does the punishment fit the crime? I certainly don't think he deserves to have what little punishment he got overturned.
