Uncle Sam: Lock Up Wesley Snipes Now!

7/21/2010 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The United States Government wants Wesley Snipes behind bars immediately.

Federal prosecutors in Florida are tired of waiting for Wesley to do his time for tax evasion.  They're asking the judge to "immediately revoke Wesley Trent Snipes's bail and order him to surrender."

Snipes was convicted in May 2008 for evading $12,000,000 in taxes.

Funny how his lawyer didn't just ask for them to provide the law that states he needs to pay an income tax? I dare TMZ to find a law that states you are legally obligated to pay a federal income tax.....

If Polanski can get away with raping a child why should Snipes get to walk? After all, the IRS didn't earn a single dollar of that 12 million or anyone else's money anyway.

Why are people sticking up for the criminal IRS?

That's good for his ass. I owed them around $4000.00 and they put a freez on my bank accounts, It's about time that they go after the upper class and stop harassing the little people. Making the kind of money that he was he should have known better, Advice to Wesley "Don't drop the soap"
