    My thoughts are that their actions KILLED this man. Murder.

    While it may not be a bloody murder? Its Murder via mental contact!

    That's exactly what I mean...there was some kind of insecurity and self image dysfunction at play here to make him do that.

    Seems as though the "victim" wasn't so immune to webcam sex: Is This Webcam Spying Victim Tyler Clementi's Last Call for Help?

    So, did he kill himself because of the internet prank, or was it something else?

    So after reading more about it, both the post by Hicup and the original story, I am thoroughly convinced that this kid had problems. He wasn't filmed having sex. There was no recording of the incident. He was streamed making out with a guy. Big ****ing deal. Who hasn't been seen in public making out at some point?

    There were other issues at play here.

    Well isn't someone quick to throw two teenagers under the bus. So I'm guessing you assume they should take the full punishment for this as well? We don't know the full story and as people have pointed out it just doesn't seem to add up. There seems to be more at play here then just this incident. You would condemn two teens to jail for being annoying prats? I think they need to be given a small fine and possibly expelled (at least suspended for a while) but you seem to be a bit harsh on these twos.

    I agree. If we just take this one incident then we see the type of escalation that he takes it to, his actions just seem nonsensical. It means he was either slightly (if not severely) disturbed to begin with, or that there is more going on here and this was just an isolated incident that just happened to occur before he finally took the leap. We can't even be sure if it's related to his suicide. They haven't found his body so I'm still hoping that he just faked his death. I know that sounds silly and that the chances of that are very very very slim, but they haven't found a suicide note or a body, and at least that gives some hope that he didn't actually do it. (And no the Facebook Status update does not count as a Suicide Note)

    I'm genuinely sorry the kid apparently took his own life, but people need to heat up some Jiffy Pop, break out a Heineken, and watch Revenge of the Nerds again, taking special note of the wrath wrought upon the sorority bitches by Wormser and Lamar's video cameras.

    Re: Student kills himself after gay sex footage put online

    I'm pretty sure that recording someone without their permission - especially in a sexual act - and distributing that video online is some kind of criminal act.

    Jall, I have to disagree with you. What happened at your dorm was embarrassing but it wasn't lasting. Video taping someone secretly in a sexual act and then distributing it is taking it to a whole other level of violation. I know technology in the modern world has blurred the privacy boundary, but are we just supposed to shrug this off and chalk it all up to the suicidal guy being unstable?

    Maybe no one close to him knew he was gay, like his family or community back home? You of all people should know how devastating it can be to be outed against your will. It's ethically wrong to do that to someone; this took it a step further by violating his body by broadcasting it to the world.

    I would say, based on the information I have heard, and what I know about depression, mental illness, and sucidality, this is probably accurate.

    Either way, who cares? I don't?


    Tim-
    Internalized homophobia? Oh... just another one of your silly unsubstantiated opinions that have no merit. Gotcha.

    My guess, based on what I've read, is that there was some significant depression going on with this guy, before this incident ever happened. I would like to know if he had ever been treated for any psychological issues, before, and what his friends would have said about his emotional state PRIOR to this happpening.
