Sad Day for America


Why? Actor/vampire killer/tax-evading criminal Wesley Snipes has been sentenced to three years in prison for, yeah, tax evasion, a testament to the utter stupidity the criminal justice system. It used to be that being rich and a celebrity got you off no matter what the crime, that stars could hire top legal teams and produce some non-fitting gloves and walk out of the courtroom. Let's hope when the R. Kelly trial actually starts (if ever) prosecutors and jurors will show some well-deserved understanding for the celebs among us just trying to have a little fun.

Why didn't he just stake the jury? I just don't understand it...

Or just offer each jury member a free Total Gym? So many options were open...
