    Three years in jail for the Demolition Man.

    The schlock he's made over the last 10 years is worthy of imprisonment by itself.

    How did the guy who owned New Jack City end up a B-movie joke?

    What an absolute disgrace -- what a disgusting country we live in here.

    The fucking IRS is a shameless band of extortionists.

    And the fact that we put guys in prison who have committed a non-violent crime, particularly a guy who has paid back the money he supposedly owed plus the heavy-handed and unconstitutional fines and fees that go with it is asinine.

    Our jails are over crowded because there are far too many people in them, like Snipes, who don't belong.

    Make him pay his fines, his taxes and tell him to go sweep a side walk or something but putting him jail is utterly ridiculous -- regardless of how much money he makes.

    Three words: War. On. Drugs.

    No other federal initiative has been as much of a massive failure, in the last century.

    And yes, that includes Prohibition.

    From the article:

    Efforts to combat illegal drugs play a major role in explaining long prison sentences in the United States as well. In 1980, there were about 40,000 people in American jails and prisons for drug crimes. These days, there are almost 500,000.
