Nothing worse than an unfair trail.

And as an accountant in Australia, this seems quite extreme. I know of one chap who had 26 years of tax returns he asked if he could do. This does of course beg the question, that if he was organised enough to keep records for 26 years, why not lodge a return during that time?

Hahahahahaha.

You win the thread good sir!

OT: I remember hearing about this a few years ago when it all started. If memory serves, he also tried to use a fake passport to get around Africa.

That's for Blade Trinity sucking!

More seriously, I doubt very much anyone will mess with him in prison. Pretty sure he could kill everyone using only his stare.

Well, Mr. Snipes, you ARE rich, and it is, in fact, very easy for you to give large sums of your cash back to the society that you live in, yet still remain more comfortable than most people ever will, even in a wealthy western nation, let alone the world as a whole. So maybe you should have been less of a moneygrabbing fuck and payed some fucking taxes, you silly sod.

Why is it that the rich are the ones who always pull this shit? what, do they suddenly need the money?

If I see something on here about the freaking prince of England getting married, I'm gonna flip out.
If you're not enjoying it, how bad do you think it is over here?! Can't move for hearing about the bloody wedding, why they can't just skip to the inevitable divorce part is beyond me. That said, fairly certain (ok, very) that he's Prince William of Wales ;)

Anyhoo, on-topic, this is hardly a bad thing to happen is it? Snipes evaded taxes, now gets jailed. Makes perfect sense surely?
BBC news. They ignore the various famines and states of severe poverty in third-world countries, refuse to cover any important stories that do not fit with existing media storylines, and then they go and take the fucking cake by reporting endlessly on the marriage of some punchable toff and his bit of stuff.

We know he is a prince, BBC news.

That does not make his marriage newsworthy at all.

He is just a man having a very expensive wedding, that will no doubt have recieved contributions from the fuckloads of taxpayer money that used to go to the royals.

Do not go and waste more of our fucking time and money by using our licensing fee on some man who has no connection to us or anything of even vague importance that effects us.

Stop trying to pull in audiences and get more attention, and just give us our fucking news!


No, not another one of those bloody "have your views" sections! I will form a viewpoint of my own using the information provided to me. Or at least I would, if you stopped encouraging people with no knowledge or useful info to waste everyone else's time and skipped to the "news" part of the bloody news!

Man, sorry. This got a bit tangental...

I had sympathy for the guy, once, before I read what sort of a crazy, crazy person he clearly is, on top of being a tax fraud and generally a criminal. He deserves at least three years in jail.

From Wikipedia -

On October 12, 2006, Wesley Snipes, Eddie Ray Kahn, and Douglas P. Rosile were charged with one count of conspiring to defraud the United States under 18 U.S.C. § 371 and one count of knowingly making or aiding and abetting the making of a false and fraudulent claim for payment against the United States, under 18 U.S.C. § 287 and 18 U.S.C. § 2. Snipes was also charged with six counts of willfully failing to file Federal income tax returns by their filing dates under 26 U.S.C. § 7203.[13] The conspiracy charge against Snipes included allegations that he filed a false amended return including a false tax refund claim of over US$4 million for the year 1996 and a false amended return including a false tax refund claim of over US$7.3 million for the year 1997. The government alleged that Snipes attempted to obtain fraudulent tax refunds using a tax protester theory called the "861 argument" (essentially, an argument that the domestic income of U.S. citizens and residents is not taxable). The indictment said Snipes used accountants who already had a history of filing false returns to obtain refund payments for their clients.[14] The government also charged that Snipes sent three worthless, fictitious "bills of exchange" to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the amounts of $1,000,000 (on November 30, 2000), $12,000,000 (January 18, 2001), and $1,000,000 (September 10, 2002), with each accompanied by an IRS tax payment voucher coupon.[15]

Shame he ended up in prison. I mean, he should have plenty of money to pay for his taxes. Wesley, leave the country man.

The greatest vampire hunter ever was defeated by taxes. I am sure the judge was a vampire.

FYI: Don't bother trying to change my opinion, either.

YEEEEEEEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

On a serious note, I admire this lad works, but a crime is a crime nevertheless.

Just watch, in 2016 he'll get appointed as Treasury Director just like Mr. Gheithner
You mean just like half of Obama's cabinet (including Gheithner)?

OT: Thats pretty fucked up with the jurors already deciding he was guilty before the trial even started. Anywhere else in the U.S. (okay, well maybe everywhere except Las Vegas, Nevada) those jurors would have at least been removed from the trial and new jurors would have been brought in.

Meh, I shan't weep for him. He's going to rich & famous people prison, which offers a better day to day lifestyle than most regular people living on the outside.

Also, "White men can't jump" was one of my favorite movies back in the day. Not sure why.
