  •  The roommate knew what he was doing and why. (11+ / 0-)

    He not only tweeted about finding out that his roommate was making out with another guy, he set-up the webcam to live-stream the video to the entire Internet, apparently believing that his revelation and proof that he has a queer boy for a roommate is more important than the HUGE invasion of privacy that he was committing.

    He even tried to do it again the next night. That's when Clementi realized that he would be stuck dealing with this a jerk for a roommate who he could not live with (not to mention the realization that the roommate would continue to "out" him as far and wide as possible, and he'd be getting stares and comments from everyone on campus) and evidently believed that he had no other way out, and jumped off the bridge.

    Never has so much been taken from so many by so few for so long...

      and his friend?  Were they expelled from school?

        •  Laying low. They should move to another school. (0+ / 0-)

          And, change their names.
