Former Providence Police Chief Dean Esserman was forced to resign, the capping moment being a party for underage kids in his yard arranged by his daughter, which he immediately broke up when he returned home. The media were like a thunderstorm, all over this. Politicians yelled for his head as if watching a medieval combat.
Governor Chafee's son hosts a similar party on one of his properties, during which a young woman must be hospitalized. Earlier, a senator's son had visited. The governor claims it's a "private family matter," and the media have pretty much left it at that. The politicians are yawning.
Discuss. Unless you're hosting an underage drinking party, of course.
