At Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania, students were
already set to mark this week with events for the lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender community, but many of those events have taken on a
different tone — and more enthusiasm — in light of last week’s shocking
suicide by Rutgers student Tyler Clementi.
Prosecutors now say it’s possible to bring bias charges against the two
Rutgers students whose secretly videotaping of 18-year-old Tyler
Clementi in his dorm room may have driven the freshman to commit suicide
by jumping off the George Washington Bridge.
