Tyler Clementi is the Matthew Shepard of today.

It’s just a matter of time before speech is criminalized here like it already is in Europe, especially with Obama picking judges and other govt officials.

Imagine that.

Which of us is surprised at that?

Seems that every device dreamed up by the Left costs us money.

I wonder why that is?

The two students who taped the faggot should be prosecuted for invasion of privacy (and peeping etc) laws. All of which are already on the books. We certainly don't need another governmnet power grab.

When are the government types going to learn that laws do not prevent crimes? Only moral training from a young age and punishment of the guilty prevents crime.

The lesson to be learned from this whole event is that if you don't want your perversions broadcast to the world (Your sins shouted from the rooftops so to speak) then DON'T COMMIT PERVERSION

"The proposed bill alters this careful balance by removing the requirement that the behavior in question be objectively offensive. This is a crucial difference, because no longer will the standard be that a “reasonable person” would find the behavior offensive."

Under this construct the fact a claim is made constitutes irrebuttable proof the offense occured. Hopefully, under the Republican House, this bill is DOA.

The hole in the press’ scenario is that Clementi streamed video of himself on homosexual sites. He “entertained”. It has since been pulled from the net because it doesn’t fit the story line. This bill is an attempt to control and Clementi is a convenient excuse.

But unless we ban the Internet, webcams, or roommates

They're saying that no one was ever bullied or harassed until the internet and webcams or until they move to a dorm with roommates? That is silly. It has been going on since Cain and Abel.

...even without harassment regulations, what happened to Clementi was against the law in every single state...

That right there should end the discussion. What happened was and is already illegal, period. Therefore there is no need for any additional regulations. What these people are trying to do is use this incident to impose more of their will upon us. No.

Typical. We have a kajillion laws, but none of them are good enough so let's pass some more. Ok, how about this for a law....any legislation written in response to an act or incident involving less than 100 victims must wait 5 years before being introduced.

These politicians only care about grabbing the emotional limelight of the moment and then we get stuck with a law that lasts forever, so there should be a cooling off period before rushing to put more laws on the books.
