Snipes to serve time

7 years agoby:
I canít believe Weseley Snipes is going to prison for three years. For those who havenít heard, itís true. The former A-lister has been given the maximum jail sentence for the three misdemeanor charges he was convicted of in February. The funny thing is, the media portrayed that as a victory for Snipes, since he was acquitted felony charges. And sadly in the end, that could have been what did Snipes in. Because this was such a public case, prosecutors, and eventually the judge, wanted to make an example out of Snipes, but showing the American public that you canít just shit on your tax-paying duties.

A 35-page government document read that ď'The troubling implication of such coverage for the millions of average citizens who are aware of this case is that the rich and famous Wesley Snipes has 'gotten away with it.' In the end, the criminal conduct of Snipes must not be seen in such a light.'' The fact is, itís true. But still, prison is going to be especially hard for Snipes, considering the lifestyle heís accustomed to. Hopefully the other inmates will have seen RISING SUN or PASSENGER 57 or NEW JACK CITY so theyíll know not to f*ck with him. Good luck Wes, you used to be my favourite actor.

Extra Tidbit: Woody Harrelson and Denzel Washington both wrote letters to the judge, as a testament to Snipes' character.

Think...

Actually, I did read what you've posted and it's still a ridiculous statement. Basically what you're saying is that in the past 25 years, which I'm sure you did extensive research on specific dates, times and events, the police have not [link] security in any way,shape,or form. Really? You consider that a valid point? Sure, in some cases cops can be jerks and hide behind they're badges, but to say they do nothing and agree with BENJ and his bad joke is a very broad and stupid generalization.

I'm sure if someone broke into your house, stole your car, killed a family member, etc., etc., you would call the cops,right? Right. Unless you're a vigilante, which I doubt you are, you're just someone who doesn't think before they speak, or in this case post. Hence: JERKOFF. Fuck you very much and have a nice day.

good!

Had this been any of us regular guys/gals, we'd be in for just as long or longer, and we would'nt have had celeb buddies to write to the judge. Tired of seeing celeb's getting off. Enjoy the next 3 years Blade.

When I said "we should be shooting our cops", that was a joke. I wasn't condoning violence against humans, it was just my clever attempt (although most would disagree) to express my opinion on law enforcement in our country. Malaguy summed it up pretty good. When you've got the same cops who you used to look up to as a kid following you around waiting for you to slip up in the least, that's pretty crappy. The chance to abuse your power seems to shine brighter than protecting and serving those

The chance to abuse your power seems to shine brighter than protecting and serving those you promise to. Serving the public is not following around innocent people to bust them for dumb shit instead of taking down criminals who are actually out there fucking this world up.

Call me when the criminals and cops become seperate groups.

hehe, good comeback

Oh so witty there imurealdad1. I like how you completely ignored everything I said about our police being out of control and just went straight to the insults. Very mature. And it's spelled "Yeah," with an 'h' at the end. Jerkoff.

benj is right

Fuck all you guys for ganging up on Benj. The guy's got a point. Maybe he could've chosen a more eloquent way to phrase it, but you have to admit that our police are out of fucking control. When was the last time they did any serving or protecting, other than when it's in their best interest? The only time I can think of in the last 25 years is 9/11. Other than that, fuck all cops. They're nothing more than a federally funded, heavily armed gang with judicial immunity.

3 years for not paying taxes? People have gotten less jail time for far worse crimes if you ask me. This sucks. Taxes suck.

FUCK HIM

I say fuck 'em. He should've paid his fucking taxes like everyone else, he's nobody special. I had heard he tried to make this a racial issue as well. What a dick. I'm surpised Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson don't have their faces all over this one yet. I guess Amon Ra or whoever the fuck Snipes worships in that goofy religion of his can't save him from tax fraud. Oh yea, and to all you jerkoffs who support and are worrying about him because he was in DEMOLITION MAN or some other shit, don't

Oh yea, and to all you jerkoffs who support and are worrying about him because he was in DEMOLITION MAN or some other shit, don't worry, I'm sure he'll be fine seeing that he is (or was depending on how you look at it) a celebrity and will most likely get special treatment. Besides, it's FEDERAL prision, he's not doing hard time in some hardcore bighouse where he'll get slammed up his ass. And BENJ, we should be shooting you for saying that you dickhole. I'm sure you'd call the cops if you needed them. Fuck off.

If he had a vagina, he'd serve 10 days. Look at other female celebs. They don't serve squat, but EVERY male celeb does his time, or damned close to it. It's a joke really... poor Blade.

It's easily possible that something like race was a factor in this, Rukas - however, how soon you forget about Tom Sizemore, for starters. Granted, it wasn't about tax evasion there (it was drugs) - but I digress.

This is upsetting, but to think that they choose to target a celebrity instead of all these right-wing @$$holes working in Congress who are doing the same things, but raking up BILLIONS of dollars in evasion.

Congratulations, powerbomb: THEY have succeeded in making you feel

If say, George Clooney or Brad Pitt did this do you think they would go to jail? Tom Cruise? I hate to bring race into it, but I really dont see them locking up a rich white actor like this.

I am so glad to see him go down. I'm sick and tired of the innocent until proven wealthy crap.

"Hopefully the other inmates will have seen RISING SUN or PASSENGER 57 or NEW JACK CITY so theyíll know not to f*ck with him."

actually, his movie persona will probably spur on many cons he's imprisoned with. they kick Blade's ass, and they get cred among the other cons.

hopefully they send him to a country club, where that's less likely to happen.

Still is...

He still is one of my favorite actors, you tosser! Give Wesley his credit, he is one of the most innovative, versatile, and entrepreneurial actors of all time who is responsible for the best action packed comic book film of all time! Hollywood had no excuse taking a crap on this man's career, hopefully when he gets out he has a plan to take back what's his. That man has definitely paid his dues in the entertainment field. But, 3 years for what he did?, all the B.S. people are getting away with
