You look at the kid’s picture, and you can’t help but be saddened by what happened. Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman, didn’t have to jump to his death.

“Roommate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly’s room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay,” Ravi reportedly tweeted.

Oops. To monitor the webcam from his girlfriend’s dorm room meant broadcasting to the entire World Wide Web. Not that Ravi would care, right?
