Death Of A Career And Taxes

Ocala Florida Wesley Snipes was sentenced for a maximum three-years in prison for evading taxes. He wrote the government three checks for $5 million and that still didn't save him.

U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill told reporters outside the usually quiet central Florida courthouse. "Rich, poor, good actor or in this case bad actor it doesn't matter. We all pay our taxes."

Snipes read aloud from a prepared apology, calling his actions "costly mistakes" He said he was the victim of crooked advisers, a liability of wealth and celebrity that attract "wolves and jackals like flies are attracted to meat.""I am an idealistic, naive, passionate, truth-seeking, spiritually motivated artist, unschooled in the science of law and finance," Snipes said.

Consider this karma for slapping Halle Berry around and making bad movies.

There is no law in the constitution stating that any American must pay taxes. That bullshit was invented in the 20's by guess who....The banks in order to get their hands on our money thus giving birth to the FIRS (fucking int.rev.svc.).
He shoulda went with that defense instead of the "doe-eyed babe in the woods" act. He might've gotten a lighter or NO sentence out of it. One person has already won in court with that....because it's the truth.
