Front page of every paper this morning, even the Times: The guy pictured above hidden-cams his roommate sucking a cock, showing the whole world what a gigantic faggot he is; and the poor gay kid gets in trouble too.

In fact, he KILLS himself.
It’s sad as hell, but not too hard to imagine why he jumped off a bridge: If the infamous Star Wars Kid had wielded a cock instead of a lightsaber and a billion more people could have potentially shared the video because of Twitter and Facebook, then maybe he and he alone would be qualified to imagine the impending hell that this poor kid sensed his life was about to become.
As for the assholes who were set to trash this shy teenager’s life: Sentencing time.
Here are the competing emotions We the Jury now must weigh:
1. Our desire for these kids to do 20 years in prison — not for vengeance, but to set a precedent. To do something so that even stupid fucking kids think twice before ruining people’s lives using this new internet death star we’ve created.
2. Our innate sense that it’s not REALLY fair for kids who pull fire alarms to be charged with murder just because the responding fire truck crashed into a Starbucks.
There’s a big difference in intent here: They’re not cold-blooded murderers. You can’t treat these kids the same as someone who points a gun and squeezes off a round into another man’s face.
3. Our desire to see the video.
VERDICT: Match the punishment for these guys’ eye-for-an-eye to their intent. Instead of 20 years in prison, make them circulate a YouTube apology that is forever linked to their names. Put them in Wikipedia and bar them from changing their names so that until the end of time, potential employers and spouses will drop their mice in horror upon typing their names into Google Instant.
Well, seems that’s already underway. Carry on!
R.I.P. Greg Girlaldo. A funnier and sweeter motherfucker you could not hope to meet.
