Wesley Snipes Plays Race Card

Actor claims "selective prosecution" in felony tax avoidance case

JUNE 8--Facing trial in a bizarre tax avoidance scheme, actor Wesley Snipes claims that prosecutors used race as a factor in deciding to charge him with failure to file six years worth of IRS returns. In a motion to dismiss an eight-count indictment filed last October, Snipes argues that he is the victim of selective prosecution. Snipes points to the fact that his two "Caucasian" codefendants, Douglas Rosile and Eddie Kahn, have not been charged with failure to file tax returns, though investigators are aware that Kahn did not file returns for six years and that it was "possible" Rosile did not file for two years.

It was not a test at all it was a raid. The only reason it stopped was because of Mr. Dog Walker.

Where's all the supporters that are supposed to be surrounding Ed's house to protect them?

I'll tell you where they are - they are standing as far away as possible because of Ed's big mouth and all his ramblings about being a fiction, 9/11, Illuminati etc. etc.

Like I said before - Ed is his own worst enemy. When this started it was promising and on the right track. A movement was growing and people were being energized. However, Ed ruined all that.

Ed - I hope you are reading this. You sir are a moron and soon you are going to be a dead moron and your cause will be quickly forgotten because you yourself blew it. You are the blame.

Ed - look around at the tiny bit of support you have right now especially after a planned raid. That's all that will ever be there because of your foolishness.

What gets me really pissed off is the fact that your moronic actions tarnish the credibility of legitimate patriots.

What little respect I had for you, Reno and the rest has been replaced with embarrassment. You are an embarrassment to the true patriot movement in this country. I'm sure the founding father would feel the same way.

Did anyone else catch the fact that the Snipes article called it a 'bizarre tax avoidance scheme'? Has no one realized the bleeding obvious, which is that tax AVOIDANCE is not unlawful? Is there anything whatsoever on the indictment that says he is actually liable for a tax? Or are they just miffed because he realized he didn't owe it to begin with? Sheeesh. -cmw
