8 months followed by a few years probation.

The family of the victim was up there crying and blaming Hogan's kid which, he deserves some punishment. However, the dirtball injured chose to race. Why in the world would they be complaining about Hogan's kid? You'd think their kid wasn't involved.

The father said "what al Qaeda couldn't do in a tour, Nick did in minutes." (Or something like that.) My thought: Yeah? Well, your son probably wasn't running around with his rifle pointing at his face with the safety off. (He wasn't wearing a seat belt either.)

What's wrong with these people? The kid asked and he received.

I like it that Hogan's kid is paying a price because he's a dirtbag too. However, I just don't understand why the parents are opening their fly traps.

I thought the boy killed was a passenger in the car of Nick Hogan.

no one died, but the passenger is in a PVS I believe and will require lifelong care.

8 months for permanently and completely ruining a young man's life seems low. hopefully the family gets some $$$ out of whatever lawsuit comes out of this

oh, and about the whole seat belt thing, no one blames a victim for not wearing their seat belt if they got hit by a drunk driver. yeah, he should have been wearing on, and it looks like he'll be punished for this forever

I'll double check. At first they said he was a passenger, now coverage yesterday made it sound, to me, like he was driving the other car.

There was no victims. That guy chose to be in the car and chose to be racing. Someone should drive a car through that family... If that guy was a victim of anything, it was of his own stupidity.

I don't think he chose to crash.

Even if he was in a separate car, how do you know Nick Hogan didn't cut off that other car or even lifted its air?

Put it this way: If you go out having promiscuous sex without protection, you might not want HIV, but you're certainly asking for it.

If you choose to drag race on the public street; if you choose to not wear a seat belt; you might not want to kill someone or get hurt, but you're certainly asking for it.

He deserves to be in a hospital bed because that's what he asked for. The Hogan kid deserves a sentence for risking the lives of the public. However, blaming the Hogan kid for the victim's condition is like blaming some anonymous skank for your contracting HIV when you were out being bad.

This is called "personal responsibility". I don't complain when the natural consequences of my poor behavior come to fruition... In the same vein, I don't have pity on those who suffer their consequences.

Yes. If you don't deserve the natural consequences that flow from your choice to act stupid, what in the world do you deserve? A right to live without natural consequences?

Not necessarily... but if you're walking the street as a prostitute or drug-dealer and something like that happens, you'll get no sympathy from me. That's a suitable analogy.
