The only one who thought Wesley Snipes WAS NOT going to jail was Wesley Snipes. He's in a minimum security Federal Prison Camp so this will be like a vacation for him. My brother said the Feds treat you pretty good. lol.

He paid his taxes. The person that was supposed to file them didn't. He was stealing from his clients. He made 50 million dollars a year you don't do you own taxes in that income bracket *******S! It's a fact minorities and poor whites go to jail and are prosecuted more harshly than wealthy whites. I was stating facts not race card playing. They look at poor whites the same. So you better watch out too. Or if the they look for you drive off in your house!

You guys are cruel!!! Our justice system is a failure. He wasn't guilty even one of the jurors stated everyone in the jury was saying he was guilty BEFORE the trial even started! the juror came foward after the trial stating the ones that though he was innocent just made a deal to convict him on a mistermeaner because it was no big deal no one goes to jail for mistermeaner. What a crock. This is kind of garbage is how my brother went to jail for 6 months. Three years later another person admited to the crime he went to jail for. You can't give back people there life. My brothers conviction was droped but thats after he lost his scholarship to college lost tons of money in legal fee's and 6 months of his life!!!!

In snipes situation he had an accounting firm with power of attorney so they could be responsible for all his taxes and money. There the ones that failed him for not turning in his tax forms. Snipes wouldn't have known it wasn't turned in he gave them power of attorney.

The only thing snipes did wrong was hire the wrong accounting firm. Is that worth 3 years of someones life?

I don't know if snipes is a good guy or not but what I do know if we don't stand up to this kind of garbage now one day this could be you! And they'll be people on message boards saying You need to do the time even though you feal innocent.

@ Amber
My point was not that side or the other.
@ pablo
It has to start somewhere, I choose to not take part, I saw your post,you are the other 1/2 of the people I'm talking about.
you think its because hes black. It was because he was stupid and greedy, If i wanted to take the time to do research, i could pull 100's of non black people who were in some peoples eyes were " railroaded"
And to the other 1/2 who use derogatory terms in regards to black, Shame the F on you!

Him going to prison is total BS! He has no criminal record, he's in a position to influence people with some sort of community service, and others have gotten off with far greater tax crimes, not to mention violent crimes! This is a travesty of justice and I feel so bad for Wesley Snipes. God be with him and his family.

Yeah let's start it here. Chris you are a self righteous tool. The fact that they went to jail for nothing matters. Just because it isn't you now, doesn't mean it can't or will be you in the future. You sit in a cell because your accountant didn't do what he was supposed to do. I'm sure you wouldn't like it but maybe you would because you type like a poofter!

Sorry to see Wesley is going to Jail but I have seen a lot of politicians’ still walking and holding position after not paying a lot of tax and stealing money from their PAC fund.

Dr. Bob sounds like you have a lot of experience. Or you want to be there with him? You sound like you know your way around a rectum.
