“Yes. More jail time isn’t the solution. He would be vulnerable to physical or sexual assault. I don’t think the time would be spent reflecting on what he did. He really needs psychological counseling. Someone needs to help him see the consequences of his actions.”

“At first blush, it appears to be light. But I don’t know all the facts of the case. So I can’t find fault with the sentence. Usually someone doesn’t commit suicide because of a single cause. This situation appears to have been a college prank. I can’t imagine that Ravi wanted his roommate to kill himself. But his lack of remorse really bothers me.”

“I can live with 30 days in jail and a $10,000 fine. But Ravi should be banned from Rutgers University for the rest of his life. Any school should have certain standards of behavior. Obviously Ravi didn’t uphold those standards.”“I can live with 30 days in jail and a $10,000 fine. But Ravi should be banned from Rutgers University for the rest of his life.

“Ravi should have gotten more community service directed toward the LGBT community. I hope he learns how to have true remorse — not the kind you find in court. It was very cruel to do that to someone you’re living with. It was extremely insensitive. I see a direct connection between his actions and his roommate’s suicide.”
