An Editorial Opinion
America, Hunter Biden’s tax evasion and gun possession case is a clear example of “white privilege” operating freely and openly within the federal criminal justice system. If you do not see this “white privilege,” it is because you do not want to see it.
Let’s compare Hunter Biden’s preferential treatment within the federal criminal justice system with Wesley Snipes’ nightmare experience.
Hunter Biden’s Tax and Drug Case
Hunter Biden, who is white, failed to pay federal income taxes and possessed a firearm while being addicted to crack cocaine.
Hunter Biden lied on the application he signed to buy the gun in question. Hunter falsely claimed that he was not addicted to illegal drugs when, in fact, he was.
Hunter Biden will be allowed to enter a federal pretrial diversion program. Because of the gun possession charge, the Deputy Attorney General had to approve Hunter Biden's admission into the program.
Was Hunter Biden brandishing this firearm? The photo below answers that question.
White House claims that Attorney General Merrick Garland had nothing to do with this case are pure bullshit. The Department of Justice's "fix" of this major criminal case for America's crackhead, gun-toting, First Son required Merrick Garland's prior knowledge and approval.
The Department of Justice has agreed to recommended probation for Hunter Biden, who did not have to cooperate with law enforcement authorities or give up the names of his drug dealers. Apparently, "snitching" is beneath the dignity of Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden's drug dealers remain free to roam the streets of Delaware. They continue to peddle their crack cocaine to young teenagers and adult drug addicts.
Thanks to a whistleblower complaint filed in Congress, we now know that IRS Criminal Division agents working on Hunter Biden’s case were impeded and/or blocked from conducting a full, fair, and proper criminal investigation into the First Son's case.
Wesley Snipes’ Tax Case
On October 12, 2006, actor Wesley Snipes, Eddie Ray Kahn, and Douglas P. Rosile were charged with one count of conspiring to defraud the United States and one count of knowingly making or aiding and abetting the making of a false and fraudulent claim for payment against the United States. Snipes was also charged with six counts of willfully failing to file federal income tax returns by their filing dates.
No drugs or guns were involved in Wesley Snipes’ federal criminal case.
Wesley Snipes, who is black, maintained his innocence. He pleaded “Not Guilty” and stood trial on the felony and misdemeanor charges lodged against him.
On February 1, 2008, Snipes was acquitted on the two felony charges. He was found guilty on three misdemeanor counts of failing to file federal income tax returns (and acquitted on three other "failure to file" charges).
On April 24, 2008, Snipes was sentenced to 12 months on each of the three misdemeanor convictions, which ran consecutively. He spent nearly 3 years in prison.
Hunter Biden’s Plea Deal is Failure of Justice
Hunter Biden’s plea deal is a failure of justice on many levels and in many respects.
The Hunter Biden versus Wesley Snipes comparison is a clear example of how “white privilege” operates openly, freely, and often within the federal criminal justice system.
This dual system of federal criminal justice, based upon race, operates consistently, whether the sitting president of the United States is a Democrat or Republican and whether he is white or black.
What is worse, most trial judges knowingly allow this race-based disparate treatment within the federal criminal justice system to run rampant, even though they have the power to stop it.
Finally, we know of no black criminal offender with federal tax evasion and gun-possession charges who has been offered Hunter Biden's "sweetheart" deal -- ever! This deal is reserved for the most politically connected white offenders.
