(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey and former prosecutor Marcia Clark about the judge's sentence in the Ravi-Clementi webcam spying case. [McGREEVEY - says a long jail sentence would not educate, but make Ravi a scapegoat and we put a spotlight on bullying and homophobia; comments on the frustration of the gay community in general: the system worked this time.] [CLARK - explains why the sentence is too light.]
