Harshness!!! Calm down, don't go having a stroke now.
I Quote you: "The Hogans are all LIARS and they tried to shift the blame to the victim! Just how stupid are you? All the Hogans deserve to go to jail, but because they are celebs."
And you are calling me stupid, WTF! Are you Retarded?

Ok, well this is gonna be a blast of logic for all the morons out there. The friend was not wearing his seat belt (to say "don't blame it on the seat belt" is pretty f'in rediculous and retarded). What usually happens when a bad car accident happens and the person isn't wearing a seat belt.... They go ouchy ;`(. Now, are we halfway certain his friend knew what a seat belt was and what it was for? Hmm, I'd go with yes. Especially being in a very high powered car with another teenager driving? Common sense. The kid knew what he was doing without putting the seat belt on.

Another part is.. For any of you out there who has a nice car and has some friends without nice cars.. How do they react? They egg you on endlessly to race the next guy.. They egg you on endlessly to drive a bit faster... We all know this... There is only a small majority of people who actually care about safety, and unfortunately for Nicks friend he was not one of them (no seat belt prooves he didn't care about his safety).

To blame this on Nick and say he should go to jail is just stupid and ignorant. The kid did it to himself by not wearing his seat belt.

However, Nick SHOULD lose his license for illegal racing as the rest of us "normal" people would, but to put him in jail over an accident is stupid and a waste of my money.

First of all, the only proof that he was not wearing a seatbelt is Nicks word, and we all know how reliable that has proven to be. Second, there is no proof that John was, as you say, egging him on, other than, oh, that's right, Nicks word. Third, It was found that John had a bruise across his chest that could only have been made by a seatbelt forced against his chest upon sudden impact. Fourth, the injury he sustained was such that wearing a seatbelt or not, would not have been of any signifigance to the injury. You should do your homework before you post. I did.

it is such a "no brainer", of course Nick was racing. The interesting thing that sticks in my mind is how Hulk got on television and was quick to state how he asked Nick if "this was the result of racing"..Hulk then said when Nick said "it wasn't" that he thanks god because it was just an accident and wasn't due to street racing"...odd, odd, odd how Hulk was so very sure to emphasize that point..of course everyone knows a man is now in a vegatative state because Nick thinks he is a race car driver. I don't need to go into Linda's little denial and I can imagine she is humiliated beyond imagination..if she is smart enough to know she should be humiliated. Oh, and Kathy #7, how come Nick is just a kid NOW and a few months ago was an adult old enough to turn professional. This accident was the result of irresponsibility and drinking..if we can even call it an accident.

A seatbelt COULD have slightly lessened the injuries but, look at that car. There is no way a seatbelt would have saved him from being a vegetable. This was no accident, this was stupidity and carelessness pure and simple. That dumba%% boy broke the law, he wasn't worried about his safety, his passengers nor the general public. This isn't the first time his driving has gotten him in trouble. Driving is a huge responsible and if you can't drive responsibly ride a bicycle.

hello, it

Damiem,
You are kidding, right?! If not, your IQ is right up there with Nick's. In this type of accident, a seatbelt did not matter. The headrest broke off because of the force of the crash, and the post went into John's skull.

No one else thought it was hilarious to hear the woman ordering? Damn, she was persistant about getting the kid the Red Superman!

Nick is an idiot, it's obvious they let him do whatever the hell he wanted while Brooke couldn't even walk outside by herself.

Can you say gender specific standards?

Can you say he's going to get his a$$ handed to him in jail?

Can you say Red Superman? BROTHER!

I watched Hogan Knows Best.

Each time I did, I noted neither Brooke or Nick ever had any responsibility.

Neither of them went to school, never did any homework, never read a book, never did a chore. IE: Take out the garbage, make their bed, do the dishes, set the table for dinner etc. etc.. Both are spoiled rotten and indulged. Their parents, who are as far from intellectual as you can get , did them no favors by creating an atmosphere of extreme privledge ......................while doing nothing to earn it.

Nick had no regard for human life or the law. His Dads celebrity, his Dads money and his Dads lawyers kept Nick out of jail, but only for so long. He could and should serve as many as 5 years in jail. He has no remorse or understanding of the pain and suffering he has caused. In my opinion he is a self centered, spoiled, brat.. It was just a matter of time before he would seriously injure or kill someone. It is difficult to say but, John Graziano would be better off dead then to live the rest of his life hooked up to machines, with brain damage in a vegitative state. May God bless him and his family.

DAXFLAME!!    

Does anyone else see how ironic it is that Hulk, who got famous being a wrestler. Which has NOTHING to do with reality. Stars on a reality show, which again, after watching it a few times, appears to have little to do with reallity as I see it. Sees this incident(its no accident) with absolutely NO REALITY!! I mean really, look how Hulk and the whole family has behaved themselves during this entire event!! HULK: I'M GLAD NICK WAS'NT SPEEDING/RACING// NICK: JOHN'S BODY IS PERFECT JUST A BOO BOO ON HIS HEAD,NO SEATBELT.
LINDA: GETS CAUGHT LYING ABOUT HER RACING/DODGING COPS/ BROOKE: JOHN'S WAKING UP NOW, WHERES SHOES-R-US? THIS WHOLE FREAKIN FAMILY NEEDS A DOSE OF REALITY IN THE FORM OF A MEGA LAWSUIT!!
