RT @osurac114: 30 days for Dharun Ravi is very fair. He should never have been convicted.Dread Like Rasta
30 days? Christ, you'll do more time for shoplifting a six pac.AC Smith
As much as I can't stand this kid, I knew he wasn't going to get 10yrs, which is fine. Our media has to scandalize and exxagerate everthing. The actual case was compelling enough. Shame on you Chris Cuomo from 20/20 for minimizing the illegal behavior of the violation of personal privacy and sexual harrassment. About Ravi's verdict today: "I heard this jury say, 'guilty' 288 times--24 questions, 12 jurors. That's the multiplication," Judge Glenn Berman said. "I haven't heard you apologize once."

A slap on the wrist for a future sociopath. #dharunravisucks Will Clark
Dharun Ravi Sentenced To 30 Days In Jail. I think it was a much to milder sentence. Should have gotten a much larger sentence of at least 10 years. Or they should have deported him back his Country.Michael W Sachs
Dharun Ravi can go to hell #youmakemesickStephanie Cole
There are many ways to be a bully, and this is what the price of his bullying cost him 30 days. The person and family on the receiving end paid the ultimate price. For shame.Trina Ramirez Arana
Cannot believe that 30 days is all that the courts could dish out for Dharun Ravi. You just let Bullies win. SMHNicole Helen
I hope that the appeal goes through, but if it doesn't, deportation would be enough punishment for Dharun Ravi.David Robertson

Dharun Ravi was sentenced to only 30 days. I never expected him to get the 10 years max but I definitely didn't expect his sentence to be so light.Sonia Wilson
30 days is bull. Dharun ravi should have gotten more than that. All I can think abt it my baby bro. I'm so glad he has a network of support.Daryll Marie
Relieved to see Dharun Ravi's 30 day sentence. If you read the facts behind this case, you'll see this is fair. RIP Tyler Clementi.Linda Sees
I'm surprised they gave Dharun Ravi such a small sentence. His reaction towards everything while in court was mechanical and systematic, absolutely no emotion. The cause of someone's death, and he was cold as can be-- talk about startling.Veli Sadiku

really angry over the dharun ravi trial. :( :(Erin Levine
Just read about Dharun Ravi. 30 days in jail isn't enough....ray chan
I must say this is shocking to me. There should at least be some jail time involved. Show that this type of callous behavior is a serious offense. While I do not think you can really "blame" one person for another's suicide, Ravi's actions directly and deliberately targeted Tyler with malicious intent. I pray that in time the Clementi's are able to attain some type of peace in their lives despite the unthinkable loss of their son. BTW, a heartfelt apology from Ravi would probably have gone a long way...Ally Musano
I understand the invasion of privacy charges for what Dharun Ravi did but it wasn't a hate crimeEric
