New York — Two Rutgers College freshman have been charged with two counts of invasion of privacy after setting up a web cam to film their roommate having sex and broadcasting it live over the Internet. That roommate has reportedly killed himself. On September 19, Dharun Ravi, 18, posted on Twitter that his roommate had “asked for the room until midnight” and that he turned on the webcam after seeing him “making out with a guy.” He then did the same thing with the same roommate a couple days later, daring his Twitter followers to iChat with him later that evening because “it’s happening again.” That Thursday the roommate, who had been secretly filmed, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge. I say “supposedly” because reports are that a body has not been found at this point, but his car was found nearby with his cell phone and computer inside. Ravi and 18-year-old Molly Wei are now facing a possible five year prison stint if convicted of the charges. It’s bad enough that they thought it would be ok to broadcast this guy having sex without his knowledge, but then to have possibly outed the guy in the process? A CBS affiliate got some student’s reactions that you guys should watch so you can meet my future wife, Kate Perkowski. She doesn’t know it yet, because it’s a surprise.
