Hulk's Emancipation Proclamation

5/25/2008 5:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For reasons that defy explanation, Hulk Hogan explained to his son Nick that he thought it would be a good idea for him to be emancipated, so that he can "make his own decisions."

Have the minor emancipated. This one's easy to figure out why.

On Nick Bollea MySpace website he states he has an annual income of $250,000 +. Now we all know the Bolleas are lying their stupid mouths off at the moment but a 17 year old with no education, go figure. Of course daddy dearest gives him an allowance, but I thought 1/4 million a year, no, can't be right, but then daddy dearest mentioned "mummy" spending $10 million on lawyer fees and still counting so not too far fetched.

When the father who supplied booze to his underage son cuts of the allowance to his now legally adult son, cry baby Nick has NO INCOME

Guess what dad. YOU supplied the booze and the street racing car, belonged to you, not Nick, YOUR STILL ON THE HOOK FINANCIALLY FOR THE CIVIL LAWSUIT.

Having your minor son emancipated will not help you. God, you really are stupid.

Disgust and disappointment are what people across this nation have been expressing about Hulk and his family. It took me a great while for me to comprehend why the Hogan's seemed to change so dramatically, overnite. It was so difficult for alot of people.

I'm no professional on human behaviour, but ,if I've ever witnessed anyone so totally in fear ; willing to do anything in order to not lose material wealth. Hulk and his family would have to be way up there.

Sometimes, people lose themselves when it comes down to doing the right thing, It didn't have to go this far.

Money alone does not a good or true man make.

Nick needs an advocate    

How can these talks be recorded in the 1st place? Are the Hogan's allowing this, or are they being taped illegally??
Are these tapes real??
If the recordings between Nick and his parents (especilly conversations w/dad) are true and happening right now- this kid needs an advocate to step in and stop his father from brain washing him!!
I am shocked at what I am hearing here!!
I have read some nasty posts regarding Nick- but he is a kid! He only has his parents to trust.
Hogan (Terry) and Linda should be ashamed of themselves!!
Have the recordings been turned over to a dept. of social services? This kid needs his own lawyer!

I'm not sure why Hulk wants to do that. Nick's birthday is not to far away. the Graziano's already have a civil lawsuit against Hulk, Linda and NIck so this is a little confusing.

Can these people sink any lower? BTW Gazoo, you're right about why Hulk wants to do this, he doesn't want to be financially responsible for what his spawn did. The only thing you I don't think you understand is that this IS the best care this country can give.

This is just another point to be made as to how selfish this family is. Daddy is only looking to protect his $$.

It's about money .. ONLY MONEY .. the Hulk and Linda and the kids don't have a heart. John's dying slowly in front of his family with his brains bashed in and the Hogans are trying to cover their liablity. I doubt this will work for them and I hope John's parents sue them for everything they have and ever will have.

*****DOES ANYONE have knowledge of a support fund or page for the Graziano family. As an American who owes something to each and every GI past and present I feel that at the very least I must send a letter of support or better still I would be interested to know if there is any web site set up by anyone officially sanctioned by the victim's family.

I understand that there may already have been such a listing if such a thing exists but I can only speak for myself in saying that I can only read and listen to so much of this sickening business.

These people are subhuman. I can only presume that any Judge no matter how low in the realm of the office will not only see through the machinations of Skulk and his tribe and pray that such a judge is so infuriated and incensed by it that he goes berserk in every possible legal sense.

I pray that there is someway that this family has their lives crumble beneath them in ways that will indeed make the victim's family seem blessed by comparison.
I know that this is only a hopeless pipedream but after forcing myself to listen to these repugnant tapes (which I might add, to anyone who has had the appalling star f#!king sycophantic BS stupidity to say that they take umbrage with the publication of these tapes and the violation of the rights to privacy of the Hogan litter. I do not know whether said publication is illegal, illicit or falls within the area of a convicted criminal's loss of constitutional rights and I don't care.

These "people" are the poster children for a need for the world of "reality TV" to be rethought and seriously cutback. There is much fat too be cut but sadly as long as there are uneducated people in this country who have no sense or even knowledge of what it means to have the self respect or how having such is to be capable of being embarrassed at one's self for the mind numbing, time wasting and lazy ways in which they choose to waste time filling their obviously empty heads with such trash when there are hundreds of channels of educational, informative and fascinating material out there if one chooses to seek it.
If you are too lazy to read as we all sometimes are, there should be no judgement but we are living in a time in world history where the world is teetering on the brink of virtual destruction because of ignorance.

I have only forced myself to sit through the embarrassingly obvious, corny, idiotic and so clearly staged setups of this ignorant TV show to see what all the brouhaha was about with this tragic case and I cannot believe that there were ever enough viewers to encourage any network no matter how desperate for programming to order more than the first 6 episodes.
How ignorant does one have to be or should I say retarded in the literal sense of the word to be able to sit through this bilge on a regular basis.
I guess as ignorant as those who believe that the wrestling industry that this pig Hogan comes from and worse has gotten rich in is A) Any sort of entertainment. It is not in any way shape or form related to entertainment except to truly mentally challenged miscreants who should be banned from voting in our country's elections nor B) Is it any kind of sport. It is not. The roller derbies and bowling programs of the fifties and sixties were more so in many ways.

We have become a world dying of a plague of stupidity. One need only look at what kinds of empty wastes of flesh, blood and bones stain the pages of our news.

But at the basis of this tirade I write with my mind numb with heartsickness for a young war veteran lying in a bed kept alive by machines is the wish that the punishment for this whining little C#!T son of a Hogan should have been a choice between life without the possibility of parole in the most savage over crowded and under funded, over crowded snake pit of a federal prison OR the option to HAVE HIS SPINAL CORD SEVERED JUST BELOW HIS BRAIN STEM so that he could live like his "BEST FRIEND" a prisoner in a useless COMPLETELY paralyzed body with tubes coming and going into and out of every orifice for what I would then hope would be a VERY LONG life.
I would bet that his loving family would simply put him away in an institution and forget him.

I am sick with disgust for and anger at myself for the feelings I have toward this family but I cannot stop thinking of things worse still that I wish upon them for nothing will ever give that young MAN his life back nor stop the screams of agony in the hearts and souls of his family *NO MATTER WHAT THE SLOGANS have to say about them in judgement of what kind of people and parents they are*
No finer example of "Let he who is without sin..." "People who live in glass houses"

I have always chided myself for wincing in disgust at how truly monstrously ugly a man Hogan is as I hate myself at times when I judge anyone in anyway but never more so than when on physic

Brilliant, poster # 54. - ( Please forgive my spelling, in advance.)

However;

A crime HAS clearly, been comitted.......period. No amount of any possible, suspicious acttivity, personal opinion, pro or con'; will dismiss that fact.

A Civil Trial by jury, can only rule on what crime(s) were comitted leading up to; and including, the events of that ONE , particular day.

Facts.
