Nicolas Sarkozy sorry after son throws tomato from French presidential palace

FRENCH president Nicolas Sarkozy apologised to a policewoman after his teenage son and his friends threw a tomato and pellets at her from the presidential palace, a police source said.
Fifteen-year-old Louis, the son of Sarkozy and his ex-wife Cecilia, and his friends were playing on Thursday in the courtyard of the Elysee when a tomato was thrown in the direction of a policewoman on the street outside and a pellet hit her on the cheek.
The president later met with the policewoman and apologised for his son's behaviour, the source said. The president's office declined to comment.
Sarkozy, who last year had a baby girl with his third wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, also has two adult sons from a first marriage.
The right-winger is trailing in the opinion polls behind Socialist Francois Hollande in his bid to get re-elected in a two-round vote in April and May.

Sounds quite normal for a 15 year old. Just like when Blair's teenage son was found in a drunken heap in Trafalgar Square. The media made out as if he had just murdered a bus load of tourists! It's what kids do.

^"It's what kids do"? I'm pretty sure most people here did not hurl tomatoes at others faces.... Where is the discipline?

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

I thought that as well. That was a GOOD parent does. Somehow, I do not believe he is one of them.

As much as some want to make kids into pseudo-robotic things, it is what kids do. If only more adults retained their free spirits.

Re: Nicolas Sarkozy sorry after son throws tomato from French presidential palace

It's what kids do ? I never met any kids who has thrown tomatoes or anything to the police It's not usual and it's not normal for a 15yo boy.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert - Rafael Nadal - Jeremy Chardy - Thomaz Bellucci - Tommy Robredo - Aljaz Bedene - Simone Bolelli - Pablo Andujar - Lucas Pouille - Ivan Dodig - Nikoloz Basilashvili - Kenny De Schepper - Daniel Brands - Benjamin Mitchell - Maxime Chazal - Jonathan Eysseric - Maxime Teixeira - Noah Rubin - Marc Giner - Adrien Puget - Enzo Couacaud - Ante Pavic - Marcos Giron - David Vega Hernandez
Victoria Azarenka - Simona Halep - Angelique Kerber - Caroline Garcia - Kristina Mladenovic - Clothilde De Bernardi - Tessah Andrianjafitrimo


I only lied cause I didn't want to say the truth

How is that a "normal" behavior?
That's not 'what kids do'. Sure there are kids who do it, but it doesn't make it right. You sound like it should be tolerated just because it's coming from a kid.
