Wesley Snipes -- I'm Not Going to Prison ... Yet

12/8/2010 12:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wesley Snipes has less than two days to turn himself in to federal prison -- but dude's still hoping he won't have to ... telling Larry King tonight, "We still believe in miracles. Don't send me up the river just yet."

As we previously reported, Wesley is set to begin his three-year prison sentence in Pennsylvania on December 9th for willful failure to file federal income tax returns ... after his six millionth appeal got denied.

get real    

That Atty of his on LK show was a piece of work. Him and Joe Jackson must shop at the same Pimp store. Who would wear a suit like that on national TV. It was funny.

I watched Larry King Live tonight and the only thing I could think was why he didn't get a better attorney. Seriously, his attorney wasn't the most well spoken individual especially for an attorney. Having Judge Joe Brown on only made me laugh. Of course Snipes didn't dissapoint when he pulled out the old race card. Sad, sad, sad.

If he skates on this, I'll never be able to watch "US Marshals" the same way again. Good luck, Wesley!

I'm not buying his B.S. He was trying to avoid paying his taxes, thats why he got involved with those people, and I'll bet there's a lot more to the story than he's letting on.

I know everything    

send someone up the river

Fig. to send someone to prison. (Underworld. As done by a judge or indirectly by the police.) They tried to send me up the river, but my testimony got me off. I'm gonna send you up the river if it's the last thing I do.

OH come on.. where are all the conservatives preaching and screaming about how THEY shouldn't have to pay taxes.. now that someone says hey... I thought I paid... my accountant screwed me...where are YOU??? come on... where are YOU?? Too much government right??? Well here is your cause, someone who is rich and got screwed by his handlers... right... I hope he goes to jail as Obsessed to PAY taxes.... because then he is YOUR hero right??... or no because he's black... only if it was Sarah Palin going to jail for not paying taxes...then it would be an act of martyrdom... we are one sick country.
