A BULLY IS ALWAYS A COWARD

After three weeks of emotionally charged testimony, 20-year-old former Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi was convicted of cyberbullying Tyler Clementi, his college roommate. Clementi had jumped off the George Washington Bridge in September 2010, three days after discovering Ravi has secretly recorded him kissing another man on a webcam and broadcasting it to his friends. The jury found Ravi guilty of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, tampering with evidence and other charges, and he will be sentenced May 21. He could face ten years in prison and deportation to his native India. Clementi’s death sparked a worldwide movement against bullying in schools.
