GOP parenting triumphs again
Scions of the GOP
A judge told two 19-year-olds arrested for firing a BB gun from a moving car and hitting two pedestrians last August that their lawyers “worked a miracle.”
George P. Dirth of Bedford and Thaddeus Duprey of Concord had their charges reduced in Concord District Court yesterday and were ordered to complete 100 hours of community service. District Court Judge Gerard Boyle noted a similar incident involving two St. Anselm College varsity football players last April had a much different outcome....
...Dirth’s and Duprey’s charges were reduced from misdemeanor reckless conduct to a violation, which was placed on file without a finding for nine months.
Dirth is the son of Randy Dirth, a former Williams-Sonoma executive and founder of Gourmet Giftmail, a mail order company. Duprey is the son of former Republican State Chairman and real estate developer Steve Duprey and Susan Duprey, president of the law firm of Devine Millimet & Branch.
Now, there's a suprise. The other kids are facing jail time. GOP Definition of personal responsibility: something for other people's kids.
