Verdict in Suicide of Roommate of Gay Rutgers Student

Hosted by

Tyler Clementi was a freshman at Rutgers University when he killed himself by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. He had discovered that his roommate spied on him and videotaped his sexual encounter with another man. A month later, President Obama released a videotaped message condemning the incident as bullying of the worst kind. Roommate Dharun Ravi was prosecuted and today a jury found him guilty.
