Tyler Clementi’s Parents Call for ‘Human Dignity’


Needless to say, public attention has been intense. The outpouring of emotion and support from our friends, community and family — and from people across the country — has been humbling and deeply moving. Regardless of legal outcomes, our hope is that our family’s personal tragedy will serve as a call for compassion, empathy and human dignity.” —Joe and Jane Clementi, parents of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, who killed himself last week after students Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei live-streamed video of Clementi hooking up with a man. Ravi and Wei are facing charges of invading Clementi’s privacy. [NYP]
