I appreciate all of you sending me e-mails and notes that Nick Hogan is getting out of jail early. How early? About three months early. In just about three weeks from now on October 21st, Nick will be done serving his sentence. John Graziano still can't do anything for himself. You may think I would take this opportunity to snark, but I'm not. Nick is in the justice system and they have rules and he behaved so he gets out early.
I actually think Nick will be good for a couple of weeks when he gets out, but then he will do something stupid and I will be right here, ready to trash him some more. But, I do want to emphasize that Nick is young, and was young when this happened. Was he conceited? Absolutely. A jerk? Yep. But the fact is he was just 17 and I would gather lots of us did idiotic things when we were 17, some of which may have got someone killed or injured but we just happened to get lucky. If we were 17 and the child of a celebrity and used to getting our own way, we might have been a-holes as well.
The reason I have been so angry throughout this entire process is because of the way the Hogan family acted, and how they put all the blame on John and that Nick could do no wrong. I just thought the attitude from the entire Hogan clan was despicable. That was my beef with the whole thing. It still is. The sentence is what it is and the kid will have served his time. Lets see if he learned anything from it or if he goes back to the same boorish behavior. He better know that we will all be watching.
