Hollywood star Wesley Snipes has been released from prison in the US after serving time for not paying his taxes.

The 50-year-old actor was jailed in Pennsylvania in 2010 for failing to file income tax returns.

He'll now remain under house arrest for the next four months in order to complete the three year sentence he was handed.

so I guess he didn't boycott taxes on principal

oh well

Honest question: Can anyone

Honest question: Can anyone explain why Snipes served time and Geithner didn't? The White House couldn't: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/26/geithner-compared-t...

Three Cheers !!!

Three Cheers !!!

Beware the cult of "government"...

maybe now is a good time to recruit snipes to our cause.

Maybe he can have a cameo in "gray state". Id chip in for that

Here is his twitter.


have not confirmed its legitimacy though.

I am just

glad he is out. Now how about the Browns!

Good, back out!

I was just wondering about him the other day. Funny how that works sometimes.

Thank you Wesley

for taking on one of the biggest bullies on the planet - the IRS. You stood front and center and said "I'm not paying" (FYI - I do NOT recommend this to anyone) and then unfortunately got an Attorney who sold you down the river...

the POINT IS... you STOOD UP Wesley. You risked your own liberty to stand up for what is right. I wish there were 100 million more people like you.

God bless.

Let me HEAR YOU! NO MORE TAX FOR THE CROWN!!! NO MORE TAX FOR THE CROWN!!! NO MORE TAX FOR THE CROWN!!! - (Beware IMO I do not think they would be wearing red coats this time).


Wesley Snipes is a real tax patriot.

Didn't he think he was too

Didn't he think he was too good to pay taxes? Seriously. I don't think his motive was trying to "stick it to the man" so to speak.

All I can say

1. He never should have been convicted.
2. I am glad he is out.
3. I hopes he keeps his mouth shut about his case.
4. He needs to run for office.

watch Liberty Stands Still

and see if you still want him to run for office.

5. He needs to make another Blade movie, with Twilight characters.
