Few of we ordinary Americans know much about certain private schools in this nation. St. Paul in New Hampshire is for those nice, clean-cut young boys who will be trained to take over dad’s role as head of this or that big corporation. Their idea of rising from the bottom is to begin at the bottom of the top level. The rest of we mere mortals will devote our lives taking orders from the snotty young clean-cut men. Owen Labrie is one of the students at St.Paul.Each year at the conclusion of their learning experience the young masters engage in what is known as –Senior Salute.
Actually, Senior Salute is an opportunity for young damsels attending the right finishing schools to walk along a path on the arm with our wonderful young men. Ordinarily, the girl is supposed to be so happy to walk with a St.Paul youth that necking, and going a bit further is regarded as the right of passage for our young male heroes. Owen sort of went a bit far and now faces rape charges. According to one of his friends, “I asked him if he had sex with her and he told me he did.” Oh, there was a smirk on his face.
