The IRS Does What Vampires and Countless Villains Couldn’t — Lock up Wesley Snipes

8 Comments

Well, there’s at least one Hollywood action star we can now say with absolutely certainty who won’t be in the mix to join Sylvester Stallone when he finally gets “The Expendables 2″ up and running. That would be Wesley Snipes, famous for slaying vampires in the “Blade” films and countless other bad guys in countless other action movies, who has been ordered by federal authorities to turn himself in and begin serving his 3-year sentence in a federal pen immediately.

Snipes was initially found guilty of failing to file tax returns back in 2008, but appeals and other legal mumbo kept him out of the brig until now. His luck has now run out, and the man who once advised us to, “Always bet on black” has a three-year stint in federal prison waiting for him.

Death and taxes, man, death and taxes…

Wesley Snipes, surrounded by bloodsuckers, aka IRS agents.

    This is so stupid. I’m not up for taking it easy on Stars but the brotha even went as far as to pay for the taxes he owed, and had a legitimate reason as for why the money could have been considered out of the U.S. Jurisdiction and reasons of taxation. Oh well. Hate to put race on it, but if he was white this wouldn’t be happening. I.E. the many criminals in hollywood living out their days in the comforts of their own home and money. Maybe he shoulda spoke with Nic Cages reps or the lawyers that are keeping Roman Polanski out of American Jails. Even though the maximum sentence that we want to give him is 2 years after raping a little girl and evading capture by leaving the country for 15 years. Ridiculous.

    @TSTI It’s called Cointelpro(look them up), they do these kinds of tactics to certain people especially if they feel the person is involved with what they consider a “radical” or “anti-gov movement”.

    I am not fascinated if Wesley joined ‘The Expendables 2′,

    What a terrible way to do one of Hollywood’s brightest stars?! How come Polanski and Robert Downey Jr. aren’t in federal prisons? Let any one normal, regular, every-day person get caught with drugs as many times as Downey has been. They would be put under the jail. Snipes has been treated like garbage; such a shame. It would have been cool to see him, Vinnie Jones, John Travolta and Van Damme in “The Expendables 2″ and maybe even Wu Jing, Tony Jaa and Jija Yanin Vismistananda. The sad part is that Snipes had a legitimate reason and he even paid what he owed. Good ole American justice system.
