Well, somebody ended up red faced…
Sarkozy – You want to civilize the internet, maybe you need to start with your child first.
Rather than passing rules to make everyone else “behave” it should be more apparent that it is a parents job to teach their children to behave, not to whine and complain and force the world to change to keep you from having to actually be a parent.
Human teenager is human. Film at 11.
There is no proof Sarkozy is human.
A man leading the charge to “civilize” the internet can’t seem to civilize his own children. From inside the presidential palace the boy and/or his friend threw a tomato and a marble at a police officer. One does not need much imagination to guess what a “standard” police response would be to this type of thing against someone other than the offspring of their leader.
Human teenager might be human, but because of his privileged life he sure as hell isn’t being detained, questioned, charged with assaulting a police officer. What keeps the standard teenager from doing something this stupid? Fear of repercussions.
He’s already put his other son into a fat government job. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Sarkozy
