Even in prison, Wesley Snipes is making sure his voice gets heard!

Attorneys for the actor have filed a new appeal, asking the court to let him out of prison so that he can take his case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Snipes is asking the Court of Appeals to overturn their decision that ordered him to jail last week. He believes he deserves a new trial because there was an alleged juror bias during his tax evasion case.

Seems pretty ballsy! But, you can't blame him for wanting to fight!

Thoughts??

    ABSOLUTELY INSANE!
    Wesley Snipes is not a threat to anyone, thus no need for prison.

    THE US GOVERNMENT IS OUT-OF-CONTROL!

    No sympathy for the man! He failed to file a tax return for FIVE YEARS! During that time he made $38 million dollars, and wanted to keep it all. You don't get to pick and chose which laws you obey in the US. Now he wants to pay his taxes, too late!

    Wesley Snipes is in denial, he needs to go ahead and do his time. If this is the same punishment anyone else would have gotten he needs to deal with it. He is no one special and I am tired of hearing about him. Pay your taxes like ecveryone else and you won't have to go to prison!!

    The lawyers will all make out alright. Depending upon the facts of the case, they may not grant an appeal.

    Wow Wes, if you ONLY put this kind of effort into paying the TAXES you ALREADY OWE, you wouldn't be in this mess, bitch!

    sure everyone deserves second chance but its still better to just take the consequence of what you did then learn your lesson so it won't happen again. if you let him go, he might do it again coz he knows there's a work-around.

    I don't get why they don't just make him pay up and fine him or something. Community service? It's a waste of tax dollars keeping someone who didn't do anything really wrong in jail. He's no harm to anyone except for our whiny, greedy government!!
