Richard Kim: Hate Crimes and the Legacy of Dharun Ravi's Case

Yesterday, former Rutgers student Dharun Ravi received a sentence of thirty days in jail for hate crimes, bias intimidation and invasion of privacy when he spied on his roommate Tyler Clementi, who subsequently killed himself. Richard Kim, executive editor of The Nation, appears on The Takeaway to offer a critical look at the case's impact on protections for gay teens and the murky legal issue of hate crimes.
