So let me get this straight Wesley Snipes spent almost 3 years in a fed pen for not paying his taxes,

But yet you have people like Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton who only spent 82 minutes in jail because '' the jails are over populated '' ?

That's our Justice system for you let the people who need to be in jail walk the streets and then someone who was trying to pay his taxes go to prison for a Misdemeanor .

We and some friends met Mr. Snipes at a bar one night...he was very friendly and shook our hands and accepted our drunken..."You were great in "U.S. Marshalls" silliness. Good to see you back Wesley.

I think we should ALL not file our taxes and EVERYONE can go to jail. Shouldn't be too long, because they will be overcrowded.And all those out of work and homeless can live off the government for awhile. a bed,food and medical. What more can we ask for.

It makes no sense to me the taxpaper paid for him to live in prison because he didn't pay his taxes. So he goes to prison I take it most likely didn't pay his taxes and we the tax payer paid for his room and board. Am I missing something?
