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?

Tried to beat the system. Failed. Hey, people, don't believe this crap you read in ads telling you how to make money or keep it. It fhese people knew how, they wouldn't have to try and hook you. They'd be too rich to care.

Congrats Wesley! I'm glad he is out, always liked his films. I just hope we don't see him buying adult diapers, that means he was sodomized while in prison

Did his time....big deal. Piece of sh**. He thought he was such a big movie star that he didn't have to pay his taxes like us low life working class people. I hope the Government took away every asset he owned. Hope Hollywood snubs his black a**.

I am so Happy to see Wesley Snipes out of Jail, what was done to him in my opinion their are other people who owe the IRS more money than he did.... Hope he joins the Expendables movie....
