Tell Congress: Stop Cyber Bullying by Creating Federal Laws

Rutgers freshman, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide on September 22 by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. His roommate secretly videotaped him engaging in sexual acts with another man. His roommate, Dharun Ravi, and his friend Molly Wei, then broadcast the videos via the internet. Tyler was so distraught that he took his own life. This is absolutely horrific on so many levels. It is unclear if Tyler was out with his sexual orientation. If he was not and his roommate outed him, this is cruel and inhumane. What makes it even more horrific is invasion of privacy and broadcast of his intimate moments for his roommate and his friends to watch. This is a hate crime and it's cyber bullying. We need to fight for stricter laws against cyber bullying. Sign the petition and tell your leaders to act now!
