Clementi's father advises young people to be civil
After verdict in Rutgers webcam case, victim's father advises young people to be civil
By The Associated Press

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) ' Tyler Clementi's father is reminding college students and children to be civil and tolerant.

The young man committed suicide days after his Rutgers University roommate used a webcam to spy on him kissing another man. The roommate was convicted Friday of privacy invasion and hate crimes.

At a news conference, father Joe Clementi advised young people: "You're going to meet a lot of people in your life. Some of these people you may not like. Just because you don't like them doesn't mean you have to work against them."

A statement from Rutgers says "this sad incident should make us all pause to recognize the importance of civility and mutual respect."

The Middlesex County prosecutor's office says it would pursue such a case again even if the victim hadn't died.
