Did he really think his celebrity status would get him out of prison? I think he forgot that in America, he is considered 'black' first.

Wesley, go do your time, you are not above the law. What make you think that being in the spot light and not paying taxes is okay. You made the money, should have had good sense to monitor your money. Common sense would have been easier to make sure that taxes are paid. Come on man, you made millions of dollar and the public supported your films, do the time. If you think that your children should not grow up without a father for three years, what about the other parents that have done wrong doing. Your kids are not above the law, I am sure that you have made some preparation for them to maintain their living habits, if not too badddddd. You do the crime, now pay the fine and do the time. Peace my brother.

So I guess it is ok to send you up the river now Snipes? He actually said in an interview not to send him up the river just yet, he seriously thought that his money and fame would get him out of this. He also claims he was singled out. If I can afford to pay my taxes then so can this jacka**

To # 3, what does him being black have anything to do with it? He broke the law that is why he is in jail. Its called pay your freaking taxes like everyone else does. Or at least us working class have to. If he would of gone when he was sentenced then he would of been almost done if not out by now but he had to be stupid and drag it out thinking he was above the law. I am glad he is in there. Just because he is who he is does not mean you can blame not paying taxes on the people he pays.
