Dhuran Ravi: Throw the Book at Him?


Dhuran Ravi, the young Rutgers student who tormented his closeted gay roommate Tyler Clementi has been arraigned, the New York Times reports.  Queerty, popular gay snark blog, seem to revel in glee at the possibility that Ravi could possibly spend upwards of ten years in prison for his crimes and his part in Clementi’s death. However, some regulars in the Queerty comment section seemed to think the possible punishment is excessive. I happen to disagree with them. Ravi, and others who engage in bias intimidation, especially of the variety that has such grave consequences, need to be made examples of, to show that such behavior will not be tolerated, and that the price to pay will be very high indeed. I say ruin his life, because his actions have a direct correlation to the tragic death of a bright young man who was harming no one. What do you think?
