She and Dharun had her computer on. Saw a kiss for a couple of seconds, shut the computer off and he left the room. Then SHE turned it back on when a couple of other girls were in the room. Still just kissing. Viewed for a second. Shut off.
It was not watched over the net. It was watched on one computer.
I stand by what I said. A 2-second kiss watched by 4 or 5 kids.
This trial was about getting a pound of flesh. I spoke to a friend of mine who is a judge this weekend. She didn't know much about the case, but she told me -- twice -- this would never have been prosecuted had Tyler Clementi not killed himself.
People have done far worse and not faced this type of sentence. In fact, had Ravi committed manslaughter, the sentence would be less.
