Lauryn Hill Reports To Prison

(AllHipHop News) Lauryn Hill started three-month prison sentence in Connecticut this morning, a bid for not paying $1 million in taxes.

According to the Associated Press, Hill reported into Danbury Prison, a spokes person for the minimum security correctional facility.

Once she is released, the singer/rapper will report to a parole officer for a year. When she gets home, the first three months, she will be under home supervision.

  • It’s no ones fault, pay your taxes and do you……..She claims to be a strong black woman, now she will be a strong black woman behind bars.

      To put it blunt as to not confuse you or your male groupies who stand behind you (literally)….Go back to your Minaj & Beyoncé threads you pussy…always bumping your gums on this sista…clearly your love for ignorance outweighs logic

      • Blaq_Boi

        I don’t understand how this is a response to Dior’s comment… Cause he/she makes a valid point. You’re “strong, empowered and intelligent” why ain’t you doing your taxes then?

      • Thank you…I understand that sometimes you all don’t agree with me, but come on I didn’t say anything out of pocket about Ms Hill.

      • I tell it like it is…These rappers got some of you thinking that they are perfect and they are not perfect….Don’t be mad at my comment, say what you want about Nicki Minaj but the chick has not been in ANY kinda drama and or negative articles, she is ALWAYS winning.

  • Casor_Greener

    LMAO! Bet she come out with a new album now

  • Antlerz

    Damn Lauryn, in high school you was that girl!

  • Logan Claws

    wow…but daily you hear these rants, oh oh we dont have any conscious artist, we dont have any conscious music, but dont support or look out for those ones that sacrifice themselves…no one stepped up to clear that little issue with taxes…where are the supporters of the good artist at…no rally no nothing…yall black and suburbian white idiots dont deserve any prophets or conscious artist…yall deserve lil wayne, wacka flaka, trinidad james, 2 chains, 50 cent, young and old shyne, niki minaj, souldia boy tellem, lil b and the rest of them ignorant jokers passing themselves as artist…shame on yall

    • Matt Swan

      Jus askin….I have my own bills to pay, so I’m supposed to pay hers too? She wasn’t there when I was filing my taxes EACH year, and she had some change to play with. If by “supporting” an artist you mean, supporting them when they clearly aren’t doing right to themselves, then you’re absolutely correct…I deserve what I get…but I bet all that you listed paid their taxes on time. #IJS…she DAMN sure wasn’t around me when my chips were low, she wasn’t around when MY bill collectors were beating my phone and mailbox up. Conscious music makes me feel hip hop is alive, but until it pays my bills……..Take ya ass to jail. BTW can I get an autograph please?

      • Blaq_Boi

        Hahahahahahaha RAW!

      • Logan Claws

        wow if everyone felt like you it would be the greatest shame…real artist dont have much to look forward to these days as far as appreciation from those they sacrifice for…

        BTW her whole situation has nothing to do with taxes not being paid, in fact she paid pretty much all of it already…but since theres a witch hunt going on for anyone who has a conscious and refuse to sell out, shes been arbitrarily picked to do prison time, a mother of six no less…

        its horrendous and down right comical how yall supposed know it alls cant make any blatantly obvious connections…I bet you might say that Assata Shakur deserve to be on the fbi top wanted because of some perceived wrongdoing on her part and not some arbitrary political move…

        bet you would not even thank her for standing up during the civil rights maddess and fighting for whats right instead of the maddness that your present day phony leaders sold your generation out for..is this remotely making sense to you? Can you even see the bigger picture outside that narrow minded concern for only yourself? anyways…free ms hill

      • Matt Swan

        Let me guess you have every free (insert rapper name here) shirt ever made in your closet. Lauren Hill DID NOT PAY HER TAXES plain and simple. Read her charges…it’s in English! Or press 2 for Spanish. What sacrifice has she made for me? Becoming a Fugee? That wasn’t on me and I didn’t get paid a single penny for any of it. When her chips were good, where were you? Did she come and fix you breakfast, rub your back, listen to how bad your day was…..NOPE!! She was out doing whatever she wanted to do, the hell with the consequences and now she has a three month bid to think about what she did wrong. Can she fix the situation sure she can, and I hope she does, but she better not expect a handout from me. Celebs think they are above the common man and use that as an entitlement. I don’t have that entitlement. I’m a blue collar worker tryin to move to white collar….keyword is WORK. I’m not asking you to donate a damn thing. You have your own to take care of, the hell with me. And it is comical that she all of a sudden cares to get her taxes paid AS she’s well into the beginnings of a trial that she knows is an open and shut case. L Boogey you’re gonna take a three month L. Relax do your time and come out with a solid album that makes it seem you were the victim of the system…a system you manipulated until it bit you in the ass. And you are comparing apples to oranges. Lauren Hill is NO Black Panther, NO leader in the black community, she is just a simple former artist who thought her shit didn’t stink, but it stank just like mine. I don’t hear you raising a fuss over Joey Crack fixin to do a bid for his taxes, where were you when Ja Rule went in, did you support Wesley Snipes when he did his three year bid? NOPE. You need to get a refund from whoever is selling you the BS you’re believing Maldumb Z. BTW whats up with my autograph and I know of this website that my friend makes $5000 a month from home typing stuff on a computer, and it’s the perfect job for lauren…NO TAXES!!! Don’t step to me with some celeb BS thinkin I should feel sorry for a sorry ass person. FOH, and don’t try to insult my intelligence trying to compare ANY civil rights participant to a lowly rapper. And this my only free n*gga moment to you, after this you will be TAXED at the NY state take everything you own rate and at the federal 35% rate. Find another site to whine on Mustaffa Ivory Soap

      • Logan Claws

        ha ha ha you are very funny,profoundly ignorant, but actually think you know things…Ill say it again, MS HILL’S ISSUE IS NOT A TAX ISSUE ITS WITCH HUNT POLITICS, if you dont understand what that means then return to your self-absorbed world of ignorant cattle excrement…yall moon struck cows dont understand what they are doing to these artist is not new, do you even recall the blacklisting of artist like Paul Roberson and many others for some absurd excuses…and you are falling for the bs excuse of paying taxes, are you really that dumb…BTW I know the law…all tax bills are paid the day the bill itself is printed(find a law library and do research fool)—-but fools like you will never know jack cause youre to wrapped up in your own ignorant self-obsorded stench…get your head out of your ass already…anyway free ms hill

      • Matt Swan

        Ok so this is “witch hunt politics” as you say. Where were you yelling when Richard Pryor, Redd Fox, Willie Nelson, Sammy Davis Jr. and others were involved in this “witch hunt”? Or let me guess Willie doesn’t count because he’s white and runs the system huh? Moon struck cows…..DA HELL???? Man u trippin so hard I know you’ve fallen and can’t get up. Ok don’t pay taxes, it’s not going to hurt me one way or the other, after all you “know” the lawwww thank you judge dreadful. And if that was the case then no one would jump through the hoops to pay what they owe by 15 Apr each year. No books needed…common sense. People who pay taxes…note pay taxes look for loopholes to get a refund, or to have less deductions, make tax deductible donations, CD’s or IRA’s (this is only a few of the ways) just so they don’t have to pay as much and to have something to fall back on when they get older. Economics 101. Yes I am self absorbed in my own stench, but I’M NOT IN JAIL!!!! FREE DEEZZ NUTZZZZ dedicated to you from WBALZ in Compton CA.

      • Logan Claws

        …well at least you finally took away all doubt of you being a psychotic swine and retarded troll

        you will never amount to anything above being human livestock…

        btw they dont have to lock you up…the system has already deem your type as not a threat to their activities…in fact folks are taken to prison so they could be turned to dumb,spineless, irelevant dushbags like you

        ….free ms hill and death to the ignorant FOOLS like Matt SWINE

      • Matt Swan

        If this is the best you can do, then you are pretty weak and your argument is moot. Your comment is based upon a theory that you seem to be the only one that knows anything about it, and when concrete facts are thrown at you, you resort to calling me a cow, swine, whatever. You never answered my question about what has she done to support her fans. Showing up to concerts hours late, leaving shows early, walking around with a “you owe me attitude” isn’t the way anyone would keep a fan. You never said what you were doing other than typing “Free Ms. Hill” on AHH. Let me know how far that gets you…or her. She paid that money ONLY after she found out she was on the way to Rikers, and she didn’t rush to pay it then. The belief of entitlement consumed her, and now she gets to pay for it. Thoughts are thoughts and facts are facts. When I look at a charge sheet and it clearly states the name of the crime, that is not a witch hunt. When I go to court and they show irrefutable evidence that even I couldn’t deny, they have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt my guilt. She got a three month bid. Sucks to be her, but it could’ve been worse. You didn’t mention free anyone else when I named other artists that lost all and or went to jail for taxes so this is selective support you’re dishing out? And I tell this to anyone that doesn’t like it here; if the system is so corrupt that you cannot take it anymore, then leave. Find somewhere that suits what you think you need and move there. You’ll be away from all the “moon struck cows” and “swine” here in the US.

      • Logan Claws

        …AGAIN you continue to take away all doubt of you being nothing but a psychotic swine and retarded (and may I add ‘US flag waving’) troll

        you will never amount to anything above human livestock…

        ….free ms hill and death to the ignorant, moon struck COWS like Matt SWINNNNNNNNNNNE

        BTW I know youre mad right now and completely disheveled emotionally so its best to do yourself the favor and quit cause youve lost the argument a long time ago…anyway

        Also if any one needs to move away its you…you’re ignorant ass is not indigenous to the land here so pack YOUR luggage and leave….fool

      • Matt Swan

        BTW I know youre mad right now and completely disheveled emotionally so its best to do yourself the favor and quit cause youve lost the argument a long time ago…anyway
        Ummm I don’t get mad lol@u. over silly ish like this. You continue to evade the questions and revert to using silly name calling to make your argument seem right. Swine, Livestock, cows, man that doesn’t bother me one bit. You’re like that dude who made that free Brittany Spears video all crying that we don’t understand. Thing is we DO understand, and it’s you who doesn’t lol.

      • Cool but the U.S. corporation owes us, so folks have two options ..collect or leave & they have about as much interest in leaving without their chippers & the corporation has in paying them….so the stage is? set.

      • Matt Swan

        Point taken, but in the end, if WE don’t pay our taxes, it’s clear and simple there will be repercussions in the end. And it’s also plain to see that if you make a substantial amount of money the IRS already has it’s eye on you, so why not pay and get it over with? It’s just money, and at the level she was, she could’ve made that back by doing a few shows and had a solid profit.

      • I’m not disagreeing, if the mob pays your store a visit & offers you “PROTECTION” (*From them ) the wise move would be to bow down & get extorted, but I wouldn’t ‘chet on you if you got all Spike Lee on them & fought the power, and Wesley was more of a fight the power case, where as L Boogie just didn’t want to pay.

      • Matt Swan

        but if you’re going to come on a site and make an argument, then you need to provide some factual truths to support yourself and the argument. Feelings and beliefs unless supported by law are baseless and that’s what I’ve been tryin to get across to dude. And it’s gotten really old that whenever a celeb goes down, now it’s time to free (insert name here). Lets free those that were truly convicted on some BS charges. Less than 1% would actually qualify for that, but that 1% matters. At least to me.

      • *Leona Hemsley…but uh…she’s white.

      • reg joe

        Bottom line, you dont pay your taxes, youll get got. All that other crap youre spewing doesnt make any sense. She commited a crime and got a super light sentence. How are you whining?

      • Logan Claws

        at least you’re admitting that the whole topic is above your head…the least you could have done is not be so asinine and humble yourself…If anyone is spewing any nonsense its you, just cause what I said above doesn’t match what the mainstream public was brainwashed to think, doesn’t mean that its not valid or true…so before you open your mouth at least research my comments then construct a better argument…ignorant livestock

      • Matt Swan

        Why are you telling anyone to research your comments? You’re the one making the argument so it should be YOU submitting your facts and figures to support your views. No one said your point isn’t valid, but you are not supporting it plain and simple. And calling people names isn’t going to win over anyone either. Kenny expressed a valid point, one that I also said and is backed by law, and yet you try to belittle him, but in the end, belittle yourself and take away any credibility your argument could have. And yeah yeah I know…..BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…TRY AGAIN IGNORANT BROKE ASS LOSER…..time for a new one

      • Logan Claws

        again you know the only thing I would say to you is go straight to hell cause you are nothing but a psychotic troll, but I ll try this…HowS about ‘YOU’ PRODUCE THE LAW THAT SAYS PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE TO PAY AN INCOME TAX ON THEIR LABOR WHETHER THEY ARE ARTIST DOING THEIR CRAFT OR THE AVERAGE EVERYDAY FOLKS…( NOT THE STATUTE, NOT THE CODE OR RULE BUT THE ACTUAL WRITTEN LAW) and none of that “its implied crap”…IF YOU CAN PRODUCE THE ACTUAL WRITTEN LAW I WILL PAY YOU $10,000 (cause I know you could probably use it right now being such a perennial broke ass loser…I know youre hurting for money) so if you can do that you will have the chance to finally be useful to the world and make some cash too…but dont worry if you lose, which you will, I will not require any cash from an ignorant pauper like you…you simply have to shut your yap and maybe kill yourself by jumping off a bridge…either way just shut up and vanish…never to return…thats it-put up or shut up…that goes for anyone wanting to take the challenge

      • Matt Swan

        Ok conspiracy dumbass here you go: A statute is a written law passed by a legislature on the state or federal level. Statutes set forth general propositions of law that courts apply to specific situations. A statute may forbid a certain act, direct a certain act, make a declaration, or set forth governmental mechanisms to aid society. So in regards to the actual LAW as you want to point out.

        The most basic myth of tax protestors is that there is simply no law mandating the payment of income taxes. Tax protestors frequently say “if only someone would show me the law that says that I have to file a tax return and pay taxes, I’d be happy to do it.”

        OK, here are the laws that (a) impose an income tax on you, (b) require you to file an income tax return, and (c) require you to pay taxes:

        The federal tax laws are contained in the Internal Revenue Code, which was passed by the United States Congress. The Internal Revenue Code is also known as Title 26 of the United States Code, which is the compilation of all the laws passed by Congress.

        The Internal Revenue Code is the law that requires people to pay taxes.

        The most important statutory provision with regard to income taxes is the very first: section one of the tax code, 26 U.S.C. § 1. Section one imposes the income tax. If you are unmarried, the relevant provision is § 1(c), which states
        26 U.S.C. § 1There is hereby imposed on the taxable income of every individual . . . who is not a married individual a tax determined in accordance with the following table specifying the tax rates on various income amounts. If you are married, you are covered by the similar provision at § 1(a). Section 1 imposes the tax on your “taxable income.” How do you know what that is? Section 63 of the Code defines “taxable income” to mean “gross income minus the deductions allowed” by chapter 1 of the Code. So now we need to know what “gross income” is. Section 61 of the Code provides the critical definition: 26 U.S.C. § 61[G]ross income means all income from whatever source derived, including (but not limited to) the following items:
        (1) Compensation for services, including fees, commissions, fringe benefits, and similar items;
        (2) Gross income derived from business;
        (3) Gains derived from dealings in property;
        (4) Interest;
        (5) Rents;
        (6) Royalties;
        (7) Dividends;

        There are 15 items in the full list (only the first seven are quoted here), but the key part of the definition is that gross income means “all income from whatever source derived.”

        So, between sections 1, 61, and 63, the tax code passed by Congress imposes a tax on your taxable income, which includes all your income, from whatever source derived, less the deductions allowed by the tax laws.

        Now, how do you know that you have to file a tax return and actually pay the tax?
        26 U.S.C. § 6151[W]hen a return of tax is required under this title or regulations, the person required to make such return shall, without assessment or notice and demand from the Secretary, pay such tax to the internal revenue officer with whom the return is filed, and shall pay such tax at the time and place fixed for filing the return (determined without regard to any extension of time for filing the return).

        So according to this section, if you are required to file a tax return, you are required to pay the tax owed, to pay it at the time you file your return, and to pay it to the internal revenue officer with whom you file the return.

        But who says you’re required to file the return? Turn back to section 6012(a) of the code, 26 U.S.C. § 6012(a), which provides: 26 U.S.C. § 6012(a)Returns with respect to income taxes * * * shall be made by the following:
        (1)(A) Every individual having for the taxable year gross income which equals or exceeds * * * the exemption amount plus the basic standard deduction * * *.

        The “exemption amount” is defined in 26 U.S.C. § 151(d) as $2000, adjusted for inflation since 1989. The “basic standard deduction” is defined in 26 U.S.C. § 63(c) as $3000, also adjusted for inflation. You can see the adjusted amounts for the current tax year in the IRS instructions to form 1040. If you have more income than the sum of the two amounts, section 6012 requires you to file a tax return.

        So there it is:

        Sections 1, 61, and 63 impose the tax,
        Section 6012 requires you to file a tax return if you have income of more than the exemption amount plus the basic standard deduction, and
        Section 6151 requires you to pay the tax at the time and place fixed for the filing of your return

        And when is your return due? Section 6072 provides the answer: “[R]eturns made on the basis of the calendar year shall be filed on or before the 15th day of April following the close of the calendar year.” This is the statutory basis for the familiar April 15 tax deadline.

        Of course, there’s a lot more to know if you want to achieve a full understanding of the tax system. For example, other statutory provisions besides the ones quoted above create the system of tax withholding, whereby you actually pay your taxes on your wages in advance, each time you receive a paycheck, so that on the day your return is due the government usually ends up owing you a refund. If you have substantial amounts of income other than wages, there are other sections that require you to pay estimated taxes each quarter. And, needless to say, there are innumerable statutory provisions that more specifically define how much income tax you owe. But you only need to look at a few simple statutory sections, shown above, to see that the duty to pay income tax is mandatory.

        Shut up and pay me. But you’re not because you’re going to say what I have here is a lie made up by me with no factual backup. You’re also going to tell me that the 16th Ammendment was never ratified by 2/3’s of Congress. Well I submit to you the statues that leads into the LAWS that govern income tax and who pays and when it’s due.

      • Logan Claws

        ‘ok conspiracy dumbass’…yeah ok stop playing yourself ass-wipe…cause for one you dont even know me….but you feel brave behind that keyboard in west bubblefuck….everybody here know that you’re pu**y and also, as you continue to prove, a completely ignorant, brainwashed piece of ass

        whats funnier is you tried to be slick after I explicitly told you NOT TO USE STATUTES, CODES OR RULES BUT ACTUAL WRITTEN LAWS…but your GED education can only go but so far…too bad you lost an opportunity to make a few bucks and not be the broke ass loser that you usually are

        also you wanna go around bashing those that dont buy in to the scam and hustle…I mean who are you kidding?…you wasted all that typing putting up useless crap you got from an irs code manual…lol and you wanna call people dumb asses…and why would I share any of my ideas when you still have not proven to anyone why they should pay those bs taxes…your dumb ass is only regurgitating the brainwashed GED education that you got…plus your just a subservient little pu**y…the burden is on you to prove your psychotic rantings idiot

        and with that I leave again disgusted having wasting time with another obnoxious, ignorant human livestock

        my question is why didnt your mother swallow you Mat Swinnnnne…useless piece of ass troll

        BTW for anyone else reading all that crap Mat Swinne put up(STATUTES, CODES AND RULES) those only apply to Corporations and Government employees…and no they do not lead to laws lol..one can only wonder where he gets that absurdity from

      • Matt Swan

        My GED level education…ok, but it taught me enough to know that A statute is a written law passed by a legislature on the state or federal level. Statutes set forth general propositions of law that courts apply to specific situations. A statute may forbid a certain act, direct a certain act, make a declaration, or set forth governmental mechanisms to aid society. So in regards to the actual LAW as you want to point out. So after reading this, you should’ve known that your argument is solely based upon taking out everything that pertains to a Statute which when passed, becomes law. So go ahead and do all the insulting and name calling you want, it’s not going to change the fact that there ARE laws on the books that tell you when to pay, what percentage you’re going to pay etc. Also in the end, if you had a real leg to stand on, Ms. Hill would’ve pled not guilty to the charge of tax evasion. So if Ms. Hill knows there are tax laws, her attorneys know there are tax laws, the government made the tax laws, how is it YOU’RE the only one here that thinks there isn’t any? You leave disgusted not because you are dealing with me, you are leaving because you acknowledge that you have lost the debate, you know like Romney vs Obama round two? My mother jokes……really? You’re going back to kindergarten with yo mama jokes? And as far as thinking I’m “tough” behind a keyboard, nah bruh…intelligent is all. You have not put out one shred of anything to support yourself and what you’re trying to convey to those on this site. You didn’t have the money to give so why would I worry about something you cannot give? And I’m also smart enough to know that if I don’t want to type into a computer I can speak into it or control A, control C, and then control V, and the computer does the rest. Peace…..but don’t forget to pay your taxes!

      • Logan Claws

        for any one else reading– that ass wipe, Matt ‘Brokeass’ Swinnnnne… keeps flapping his gums about laws he cant show…his only weak and pathetic explanation is “oh oh they are on their way to becoming laws or after the are written they magically start being laws” again STATUTES, CODES AND RULES ARE NOT LAWS…DO YOUR RESEARCH AND FIND OUT WHAT THOSE THINGS ARE…BLACKS LAW DICTIONARY WOULD BE A PLACE TO START FOR ANY ONE WHO IS ACTUALLY SERIOUS…

        as for that contemptible troll Matt Swinnnnne he wouldnt know the difference between left and right up or down(thats what a GED education gets ya)…he only regurgitates what the system brainwashed him to think…a completely ignorant subservient pu**sy….STATUTES, CODES AND RULES ONLY APPLY TO CORPORATIONS AND GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

        Last I checked Launryn Hill is neither one of those…so the real question the public (or moon struck cows/human livestock) should be asking is why was she and others like her forced to spend time behind a cage?…but of course with jackass trolls like matt swinnnnne around to spread that bs lie about tax codes the sheeple only say moooooo and roll over…

        like I said before Matt Swinnnnnnne is only a psychotic troll out here looking for attention and spread confusion, he has no real job to go to and very likely lives with his moms…but in his narrow little mind he figures he is in possession of great knowledge…knowledge he acquired while pursuing his GED during night class and getting brainwashed by a system he fears

        dont waste any time listening to any of his self absorbed delusional clap trap…he will eventually go away to his mother once we all ignore his imbecilic rantings..

        as for me I only want whats right for my fellow men and women…if there is unjust activity going on those that care should stand up and denounce it…yes their are going to be agents and trolls like Matt Swinnnnnne but the truth will never be held down for long

        now lets see what dumb ass comeback Matt Swinnnnne is gonna come up with now.. go ahead and continue to make an ass of yourself pu**sy keep talking you already lost and should be going home to your mother..but keep commenting with your weak comebacks little troll keep it going…

        Last month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released a 2010 update of its discussion/rebuttal of various “tax protestor” arguments (PDF). The IRS advises that “[a]nyone who contemplates arguing on legal grounds against [paying taxes] should first read the 80-page document.” Wikipedia also has a reference page, as does Professor Jonathan Siegel at George Washington University Law School.

        There’s hardly a constitutional amendment, law, or supposition that hasn’t been used in an attempt to prove that income tax collection is invalid. As a constitutional lawyer who works for a tax policy organization, I’m often asked whether the Sixteenth Amendment was properly ratified or (often more rudely) to show where the law is that requires people to pay income taxes.

        I find these arguments, like most constitutional law discussions, interesting. But ultimately the truth is that the Secretary of State proclaimed the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment on February 25, 1913, 26 U.S.C. § 1 imposes tax on taxable income, 26 U.S.C. § 63 defines taxable income as gross income minus allowed deductions, 26 U.S.C. § 61 defines gross income as all income from whatever source derived, and 26 U.S.C. § 6012 requires the filing of returns by every individual with gross income for the year (with some exceptions). Dozens of cases have upheld the federal government’s power to collect income taxes against just about every argument.

        Judges have little tolerance for tax protestors, particularly ones who convince other people not to pay taxes while being deceptive about the enormous legal consequences. Adherents who practiced what they preached are in jail for tax evasion, many for dramatically hefty sentences. And while the IRS may be less sinister than it was a few years ago, there’s no doubting their willingness to use enormous power against individuals to collect tax revenue.

        As I tell people, the current federal income tax has a lot of problems. We at the Tax Foundation are no stranger to its complexity, favoritism, non-transparency, and the burden it imposes on the economy. But claiming that the tax doesn’t actually legally exist hasn’t been a productive avenue. Since our founding in 1937, we’ve had hundreds of brilliant economists, lawyers, accountants, and policy analysts here, and they all paid their income taxes. If there was a way out, one of them would have found it.
        This was written by Joseph Henchman Feb 2010. I could honestly care less if anyone pays their taxes or not, BUT I can assure that the “voice of reason” on here telling folks there is no actual law covering it, IS in fact paying state and federal taxes unless his business is illegal, or said person does not reside in the United States. Laurel Hill did not pay her taxes that she owed the government plain and simple. I’m not going to stoop to a level beneath me and keep going with the name calling. If anyone has a valid point, then place your creds here. Make your argument, state your claim. We do not get to pick and choose what a law is or which ones we will abide by and others that we won’t. Failure to do so has it’s consequences that we will have to live with. Ms. Hill got off lucky. Three months in a minimum security prison is bad on the family unit, but instills a lesson in her hopefully that she is no better than any of the working class people that do the right things from paying their taxes to taking care of their own families. Blacks Law Dictionary while a good point of reference, is not the sole end all be all of information. It is up to you to look at other viable sources of information and make your own mind up. Contact your lawyer, Congressman, Representative, or whoever it may be that you deem credible. Do not take my word for it, or take Logans rants, look for yourself, make up your own mind, take your own chances either way. Peace

        You want ME to research YOUR point of view? Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha. Like I give that much of a damn about what you think, LOL. Thats Rich!!! Good one! Now I will present a point of view without namecalling and childish and boorish behavior. Are you over the age of twelve? I ask as we all know that only the most ignorant and foolish, who do NOT know how form a thought process and convey their thoughts properly and in the right format, resort to name calling and cursing at folks that they have never met before. Ill be whatever name your mind can conjure, Sir. I hope that works well for you in your future. All I can say is “Good luck with that.” Now, my statement was pretty simple. She didnt pay her taxes, she deserves to go to jail. Did that seriously get you irate to the point that you lost your composure and started name calling like a 15 year old? Wow guy. All I can do is look at you, shake my head and smile. Youll be ok. One Day.

      • reg joe

        BTW, I didnt present an argument at all, as you supposed. I presented my point of view. I dont get on blogs to argue. Seriously, you cant be older than 15 at best. Your points of view are very juvenile.

      • Never said you had to explain, just asking you too for informational, educational & illustration purpose.

        Citations? KeyWords?, etc.

        I’m going to check it out, just trying to narrow down the search area.

        IE: Paid by whom?
        Why do we get a bill if it’s already been paid??

      • Logan Claws

        No doubt my friend…I will be glad to provide the links, let me know when you are ready

    that’s fucked up how they did her she coughed up 900 rack’s they still locked her ass up

    • reg joe

      She got 90 days. She was facing some years, so I think her paying what she OWED, got her sentence lightened but she willfully admitted that she didnt pay her taxes. She had to do some time. 90 days in a min security jail beats the hell out of 5 years in a Federal Pen…which she could have easily done. Dont forget that Wesley Snipes just got out after 2 years for the same thing, so she got off light. I hope she gets it together.

  • Logan Claws

    for any one else reading– that ass wipe, Matt ‘Brokeass’ Swinnnnne…
    keeps flapping his gums about laws he cant show…his only weak and
    pathetic explanation is “oh oh they are on their way to becoming laws
    or after the are written they magically start being laws” again
    STATUTES, CODES AND RULES ARE NOT LAWS…DO YOUR RESEARCH AND FIND OUT
    WHAT THOSE THINGS ARE…BLACKS LAW DICTIONARY WOULD BE A PLACE TO START
    FOR ANY ONE WHO IS ACTUALLY SERIOUS…

    as for that contemptible
    troll Matt Swinnnnne he wouldnt know the difference between left and
    right up or down(thats what a GED education gets ya)…he only
    regurgitates what the system brainwashed him to think…a completely
    ignorant subservient pu**sy….STATUTES, CODES AND RULES ONLY APPLY TO
    CORPORATIONS AND GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

    Last I checked Launryn Hill
    is neither one of those…so the real question the public (or moon
    struck cows/human livestock) should be asking is why was she and others
    like her forced to spend time behind a cage?…but of course with
    jackass trolls like matt swinnnnne around to spread that bs lie about
    tax codes the sheeple only say moooooo and roll over…

    like I
    said before Matt Swinnnnnnne is only a psychotic troll out here looking
    for attention and spread confusion, he has no real job to go to and very
    likely lives with his moms…but in his narrow little mind he figures
    he is in possession of great knowledge…knowledge he acquired while
    pursuing his GED during night class and getting brainwashed by a system
    he fears

    dont waste any time listening to any of his self
    absorbed delusional clap trap…he will eventually go away to his mother
    once we all ignore his imbecilic rantings..

    as for me I only
    want whats right for my fellow men and women…if there is unjust
    activity going on those that care should stand up and denounce it…yes
    their are going to be agents and trolls like Matt Swinnnnnne but the
    truth will never be held down for long

    now lets see what dumb ass
    comeback Matt Swinnnnne is gonna come up with now..

    • You may not agree with Matt Swan, but he is representing the real. You are wrong, and are quoting Black’s Law dictionary, which teaches the wrong law, because it is based on the 14th amendment, which was never constitutionally ratified.

      >>I’ll give you a second to google the ratification date & vote.

      13 states in rebellion, plus Ohio & New Jersey? voting against it denied the mandatory quorum for ratification, but with only 37 states at the time, the 13 states in rebellion alone had the veto votes.

      While that marinates:

      The 14th amendment actually made “PERSONS” a corporation, and as such, so are 14th amendment citizens created it by it, not GOD Almighty, but the almighty corporation.

      This was the modification or extension of slavery that the civil war was fought for.

      Failing to understand these facts are why you fail to understand why Lauren is in a cage. Personal attacks aside, you haven’t researched the topic enough to fully support your position.

      There are no more government employees because there is no more United States.

      (Executive order 12803)

      No judicial courts since 1789 only “Executive Administrators” that enforce statutes & codes.

      (FRC vs GE 281 US 464

      &

      Keller vs PE 261 US 428, 1 stat. 138 – 178 )

      The fact is, the U.S. Constitution doesn’t apply to you, which is why you can’t use it to defend you, as the court ruled in :

      Paldeford Fay & Co Vs The Mayor & Alderman of the city of Savannah

      (14 Georgia 438, 520)

      Matt Swan isn’t as far off as you are leading some to believe, he just doesn’t express his views in an acceptable vividness, because they are unacceptable truths.

      All truth goes through three stages:
      1) Ridicule
      2) Violent Opposition
      3) Acceptance

      I am here to take you through the next levels.

      >>In Gladiator voice :
      “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? ISN’T THAT WHAT YOU CAME FOR?!??!!!”

      >> Crowd goes wild ^^

      • Logan Claws

        Blacks law dictionary teaches the wrong law?…lol…ok Iam not going to go off on you like I did that obvious troll Matt Swinnneee

        but you are totally off and I am kinda getting the hint of some arrogance and even some contempt on your part

        If thats the case shame on you for even opening your mouth

        I sincerely dought that you read any editions of the blacks law dictionary and god knows where you get your distorted facts from(Blacks law is not based on no 14th amendment fool)…it actually could be ‘GOOGLE’…YEAH I GUESS IAM TALKING TO MR ‘GOOGLE EVERYTHING RESEARCHER’ WHOS NEVER ACTUALLY BEEN TO A LAW LIBRARY OR KNOW WHERE ONE IS LOCATED…ONLY MAYBE IF HE GOOGLES IT…LOL YOUR PATHETIC DUDE

        you could have humbled yourself and maybe learned something about law instead of riding Matt Swineeees nuts…

        YALL IDIOTS DONT GET ANYTHING UNTIL WAY AFTER THE FACT
        I COULD WASTE MY TIME AND GO TIT FOR TAT BUT ITS OBVIOUS YALL FOOLS ARE STUCK ON IGNORANT AND AINT TRYING TO LET GO…Im NOT ABOUT TO WASTE MY TIME CASTING JEWELS AT THE FEET OF SWINE…

        .I’ve gotten paid very well for my knowledge of law and have helped countless many get out of irs fraudulent debts, mortgage foreclosure, fraudulent child support payments, fraudulent contracts with music labels, parking tickets, and so on…Iam not about to give yall no free consultations except to only encourage YALL to research whats going ON with Lauryns case in light of the facts I presented …

        that is TAX STATUTES,CODES AND RULES ARE NOT LAWS…THATS WHY I ASKED THAT WISEASS MATT SWINE TO SHOW ME THE WRITTEN LAW THAT SAYS ‘PRIVATE CITIZENS’ HAVE TO PAY INCOME TAXES AND HE COULD NOT DO IT…HE ONLY MADE A BUNCH OF ANEMIC EXCUSES AND REGURGITATED WHAT THE SYSTEM BRAINWASHED HIM TO THINK,,,WHICH IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING NOW..MAY GOD DAMN BOTH OF YALL SPINELESS IGNORANT PU**iES TO HELL

        IGNORANCE IS ITS OWN PUNISHMENT…I leave yall to wallow in the putrid stew of ignorance

        EVENTUALLY YALL MIGHT ACTUALLY FIGURE IT OUT
        just make sure its not from behind a cage

        IF YALL GOT ANY DUMBASS REBUTTALS SAVE THAT SH*T FOR SOMEBODY WHO CARES…

        DUMBASS HUMAN LIVE STOCK

      • I’ll take your response as you couldn’t find a ratification date or vote for the 14th amendment.

        PERSONS or Personas are corporations, as evidenced by the recent election financing rulings, as well as the NJ case regarding the carpooling law, and the guy’s defense was that he was a corp, & he won.

        If you don’t understand the relationship between Black’s Law dictionary & the 14th amendment, there isn’t much I can help you with.

        You still haven’t even grasped the ramifications of the 14th, and what it’s not passing actually means.

        who have you gotten out of jail or legal problems?

        My guess is none, especially with that ignorant rubbish youre trying to pass on here as your knowledge of law…(bet you got that law degree from the internet, Google University…lol)

        trust me you will always be a complete nobody at the rate you are going, so you might as well quit now…your bullshit responses wont get you any more attention…ignorant human livestock

      • LOL~N

        It’s clear that you have no facts to refute the case citations I quoted. Your personal attacks do very little to cloud the issue or hide that fact that you have no idea what you are talking about, but that was clear the instant you mentioned Black’s Law Dictionary.

        That’s the problem with you internet, think you know it all, type, numb-skulls. You fail to research the topics you espouse any further than the video you saw on youtube & are too stupid to embrace dissenting ideas / theory’s in order to improve your intellectual position.

        I’ll be honest with you, quoting Black’s Law dictionary like that’s suppose to make you appear intelligent is actually one of the funniest things on this site.

        “This type a ‘chet happens ebbary day!”

        On this particular subject, you’re out of your league, you’re not even in the same sport, because you fail to realize the factual legalities of your untenable position.

        I could schmack you around on this subject all day, if you could just get past my first post, LOL~N, which obviously you still can’t.

        What day was the 14th amendment ratified and what was the ratification vote?

        You sound like just another white collar wannabe, brainwashed house negro on some smart dumb Ninja type ‘chet……on top of suffering from accute B’ish @$$ Ninjadom.

        See how fast you run from the facts? Simple discussion delves into nonsense because you aren’t really prepared, not even barely prepared, to discuss or defend the position you attempted to advance.
