From what I've seen, this is pretty sad. From what I know about the case, Dharun is certainly quite a bit of a dick, and I doubt I'd like the guy, but I don't think 10 years in prison is exactly the thing for him...
That's pretty harsh.
I can't know, but I think Tyler Clementi was just a bit of an eccentric kid who committed suicide for private reasons.
Maybe the Twitter thing was sort of the trigger for it, but it was sorta only the cause in the way the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand was the cause of WW1. Yeah, it started it, but the factors had been building up for a long time, and if that hadn't started it, something else would've.
I mean, if being outed in public is grounds for suicide, I should've killed myself a few years ago. It's not just life's going good, then outed on Twitter, then a few days later kill yourself.
So, really, I think they should've let Ravi go, I'm sure his last year or so in court has been most humbling and lesson-inspiring.
Although, if I was him, I certainly would've taken the 600 hours of community service plea deal. In a heartbeat.
His lawyer said he didn't accept it "because he's innocent", and it's a matter of principle, but frankly I would've said fuck that bullshit, I don't give a fuck whether I did it or not, if it keeps me out of prison, I'll do it.
So yeah, he definitely should've taken that plea deal.
Not much interesting... Sitting around this weekend. It's snowing out now, it might not be school tomorrow.
That doesn't really thrill me that much, I don't mind school really at all. I mean, the rest of my life has recently become so pointless, the time to hang out with my friends is wonderful, really.
And it's so fucking easy, man.
Sometimes I think about how easy school is, and probably if they put the thumbscrews to us a little harder, maybe how much better the country would be, there'd be so fewer Republicans...
A boy can wish, can't he?
Anyway, night guys.
