Oh come on he knew damn well that when he started to mess with his head, he was gonna hurt him. It's not like you decide to ruin someone's privacy like that and then go "whoops, had no idea I was doing anything wrong, sorry bro."
I'm sure he didn't mean to push him to his death but still, it's such a nasty thing to do. I don't know about the sentence, 10 years sounds like a lot of time but if he got 1 or 2, would that really change people's mentality towards this issue? Honestly, I'm not sure.
Living with that kid's death will be a massive burden anyway, regardless of jail time.
An eye for an eye never really changes anything. A rather long jail time for that guy won't really change people's attitude at all. The countries with the least number of criminals and criminal acts registered have the least penalties for criminal offenses. Maybe it is time for us to start wondering why.
Well If I was that judge, I would give maximum five years.
It hurts to be bullied but I mean if someone's gay it's there life, how does it affect yours? You can easily adjust to living with a gay roomate. What he did there was tottally wrong and it was kind of his fault for their death.
10 years is a long time. People change, people grow. 10 years is a long time for a human. When he becomes old, he'll remember about the 10 years (if he lives long enough), he's not really being charged for the 'teasing' but more for the 'death' although teasing led to death, some people will argue to only charge for the teasing, not like he killed him, but convinced him to kill himself.
That he committed suicide was not entirely that guy's fault. And I say that again - especially since it wasn't like he had no other choice at all.
