Graziano Fam: You're Not the Victim, Hulk!

6/17/2008 10:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In the ongoing battle between the Hogans and the Grazianos to appear more sympathetic, the Graziano family has scored a knockout blow with some actual reality television.

Last night, Nancy Grace aired exclusive home video of John Graziano -- the victim in all this, lest we forget -- and what it's like for him in his day-to-day life.

Prison doesn't seem so bad now, does it Nick?

OPEN LETTER TO THE HOGAN & GRAZIANO FAMILY

Hogan Family: You are wealthy and have fame. Unfortunately, you're values and morals are obstructed by money and high society. No matter what you do in this world you are celebrity status and everything you do will be known and judged. However, you believe that you are above the law.

We know the facts of the case:
1.) Terry Bolea took out Nick and John on a boat and bought alcohol that day. (That sure is a different from the Hulk Hogan I seen on Hogan Knows best) Hulk Hogan watched and picked apart every move his children made on that show. I actually felt bad that his children had 8:00 pm curfew. He even went as far as putting a secret GPS tracker on his daughter's car to see what she was "really" up to. That right there shows a person who has issues and doesn't trust anyone including his own family. It's my belief and experience when you hold on to something too tight they eventually break free and when they do break free it's for the worst & wild. This has been proven inside the Hogan family. (ie, his wife) Hulk Hogan took his son to Sebring Race Track in Florida (which I have a house by) and got him into drifting and racing. But, was it taught that with racing and drifting there is a time and a place for it? I doubt it. And, I think it's irresponible of the parents to put a race car into the hands of 17 year old CHILD. Yes, I say child because, he is a CHILD at 17 and should not have that much behind the wheel of any car.
2.) We know John got in the car and had no seatbelt.
3.) We know Nick had alcohol in his system even though it was below the legal limit.

Adding up the facts: Terry supplied the alcohol to his underage son, Terry supplied his son with a powerful race car. Terry probably never taught his child responsiblity of racing because he was to busy to make Nick "A Big Star".

HULK HOGAN'S son Nick is 17.... 17... 17.... The responsiblity of Terry and Linda Bollea. Period. End of discussion.

So, it's time to step up to the plate as a Celebrity, Husband and Most imporant A FATHER and MOTHER. And take responsiblity for your CHILD'S actions.

This was not God's plan, This was caused by your child Nick.

And Nick should cry everyday knowing what he did to another person. Nick should cry for every step, every bite of food, every time he has conversation, everything he does the simple things in life. He should cry because John will never do those things again. John will never do the simplest things in life. He'll never walk, talk, converse or look outside and see the sun shining.

I set and watched the sentencing of Nick. If I was that judge, I would of sentenced your Son NICK, to 5 years prison the max, with a sipulation of Mon - Sat every day for 10 hours a day to sit next to bedside of John with guard posted next to him so, he can see and watch John, what John goes through daily and his vegated state and what his actions caused because of poor judgement and bad parenting.

I believe that Hogan's plan for a reality show of Nick should be boycotted by all TV stations and viewers. Why should we give the Hogan's any more fame?

GRAZIANOS:
There are some many people who have never met you nor known the family that pray for the family everyday.
John was too young and beautiful man to have this happen to him. He served our country and fought for our freedom. That alone shows that John has morals, beliefs and responsbility of a great guy. Now, he lives in a state of vegetable. May God's angels hold him close everyday and comfort him and hold him and family close to God's heart.

Ouch! That really puts things into perspective, doesn't it? It only makes the Hogans look worse for having the audacity to complain about their situation.

The video says it all.

Nick has got it easy with only 8 months in jail. They should have sentenced him to care for John the rest of his life.

It's a shame that crimes like these go unpunished.

I dislike both these families. Who the heck decided this kid wanted everyone watching him on TV? Everyone involved in this disgusts me, with the exception of the unconscious.

I believe the crash was a tragic accident. It was/is horrible for all those involved. However, the behavior of the Hogan family after has been disgusting. I believe the releasing of the tapes the authorities recorded of Nick's parents visiting him in prison was wrong. It was sensationalism. But, what was worse was WHAT was said on those tapes. I didn't listen to them, but the headlines and channel surfing made it impossible not to know what was said. (I would assume it was the disgusting comments that led authorities to release the tapes, as much as the celebrity of the people involved) The Hogans represent the worst of celebrity, entitlement, vanity, and privilege. In a few months, their son will be out of prison and this time will be a memory for them. Instead of using this situation for growth and reflection, a time for all of them to embrace the reality check and grow up, they're clinging to their egos by believing they are the victims. That's sick and twisted.

I would love to see the day when people hear the name Hogan and don't know what it's in reference to, or who the family is. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening any time soon.
