Tyler Clementi’s Parents Reject Dharun Ravi’s Apology
Joseph and Jane Clementi have heard Dharun Ravi’s apology – which came a year and a half after their son’s death, and only after a judge rebuked him for never offering one, by the way – and they ain’t having it!
“A sincere apology is personal. Many people convicted of crimes address the victims and their families in court. Mr. Ravi was given that opportunity but chose to say nothing. His press release did not mention Tyler or our family, and it included no words of sincere remorse, compassion or responsibility for the pain he caused.”
The Clementis also said they were troubled by the judge’s decision not to impose jail time for the bias crimes for which Ravi was convicted.
To be completely frank, it’s almost refreshing to finally see someone involved in this case display some human emotion that we can actually relate to.
Are you buying Ravi’s apology? Do you support the Clementi’s rejection of it?
