Gay Bias Trial Continues in New Jersey Suicide of Tyler Clementi - Yahoo! News
Rutgers student Tyler Clementi jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in September 2010. Before committing suicide, Clementi posted a message on his Facebook page: "Jumping off the gw bridge sorry."
Clementi's encounter with an unidentified male had been live-streamed over the Internet. Dharun Ravi, 18 at the time Clementi committed suicide, has been charged with a hate crime for having set up the webcam that streamed the incident.
The trial began Friday and continued today with student witnesses testifying to how they crowded around a computer screen to watch two men kissing.
At what point does such behavior rise to the level of a hate crime?
