"Die Hard" Director Sentenced to One Year in Prison

Posted: October 4th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Die Hard" Director Sentenced to One Year in PrisonSubmit Comment
A federal judge sentenced director John McTiernan (Die Hard, Predator) to twelve months in prison for his role in the Anthony Pellicano wiretapping scandal that involved the investigation of producer Charles Roven (The Dark Knight, Twelve Monkeys). McTiernan was also ordered to pay a $100,000 fine and to serve a three years supervised release after his prison term.

McTiernan entered a conditional guilty plea in July for giving false statements to an FBI agent and a false statement to the court. His attorney said that the FBI failed to follow their own procedures as they investigated the director's role in the Pellicano case.

The judge thought that the sentence should even be harsher, but federal prosecutors recommended a lesser punishment. Pellicano, meanwhile, was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2008.

@Ari Gold

Do one better. Just recreate the scene where Joe Pesci's character stabs the guy in the neck with the ballpoint pen.

Then ask him if he " Got the point. If not, jot it down. "

See, ya gotta have that cool catchphrase that all the elementary kids can talk about during lunch at school ... while their sexting pictures of their homeroom teacher with the big D-sized tits and the short, thigh-cut mini, showing a nicely shaved vagina.

1. Scroll (look that up) past posts from posters you don't like.
2. Leave this site.
3. Go lick your whoring mother's *sshole as she f*cks men (other than your diddling dad) to pay the rent on your trailer, welfare boy.

You posted to me yesterday about 'contributing' and 'posting ON topic'... how are ANY of your posts conforming to your own rules, retard. You're a pleb, too inconsequential to be calling ANY shots, on here OR in the real world, dreg.

Clearly he misses the mark on all things in his life, including his fanboy club of all things Guevara (a known loser!).

'Don't vote for Bush!' --- he's not running for office douche bag!

And I'll piss on both their graves the next time I'm visiting and say it's from you... loser.

@Che 4 Prez

Che For Prez, if I may,

I don't mind you commenting about the number of 'threads' I enter into comments. I have a sporadic mind and sometimes my off-colored, black humour and witty repoirte comes in short, yet inspired burst.

If I need to riff on a theme ... for example John McTiernan going to prison for committing perjury to the FBI, then immediately I think of satutory rape, shivs, lousy prison accommodations, improperly cooked food and repeat offenders, which may include, if not often, well known national and international prison gangs.

But my only pet-peeve with your comments is your spelling and texting initialing grammar. I have the same pet-peeve with those guys who submit topics into this site, so you're not alone.

For example :

u guys just proved that u all dropped out of high school! che wasnt a terriorist jack nicholson said that che was a huminist(look that up ranger)! like clinton is and jack is alot smarter then u will ever b and jane fonda said that we all need to b more like che so how can n e 1 argue that? and if they re arrsting people that lied to the fbi like the guy in the article then the goverment should live actors alone and only arrest ppl that lied about important things like bad politicians

ahem.

If I may.

" You guys just proved that you all have dropped out of high school (I didn't.). Che wasn't a terrorist (He was a revolutionary that worked with Fidel Castro to release Cuba from years of dictatorship, but has had a questionable reputation for his 'kill first, ask questions later' code and also because of some political dealings with the CIA.). Jack Nicholson said that Che was a humanist (You almost spelled a humidifier, but that's okay. Spellcheck must not have been working.) like Bill Clinton. And Jack is a lot smarter (not alot) than you will ever be. Jane Fonda said that we all need to be more like Che (Actually, if you look at Jane's political record, she did protest the Vietnam War, but lately has been more conservative in her stance, since marrying Ted Turner.), so how can anyone (not n e) argue with that ? If they are arresting people that lied to the FBI ( like the guy in the article ), then the government should leave (live?) actors alone. They should only arrest people that lied about imporatant things. Like crooked (bad is okay, crooked is better) politicians. "

See ? Just minor corrections in your submission not only make it more solid in debate and questioning the other commentors on the site (think debate team), but also make you appear for intelligent, warm and welcoming.

Now, you probably thumb your way around the ol' cell all the time, it seems. Excellent. But in the world of commentary, if you abbreviate with Prince-like numbers for words and misspell other words just to rush your comment in, then grammatical police (like myself) will misjudge you and consider you to be a moron/imbecile/boob/ass/nimcompoop/retard/dummy/dork/putelant piece of horsepoop.

Grammar. That's where it's at.

i was being nicve to you dont be such a chode gayboy

@ Che For Prez

I looked up the word " chode "

From the Urban Dictionary :

" I don't know where most of you got your f*cking definitions for this word, but the Chode has nothing to do with a short or fat penis. It is a synonym of "taint" and "gooch". It is the area between your sac and your *sshole. Why would you create a definition for something that doesn't exist, you morons? "

So you basically say I am the taint of homosexuality ?

The line I quoted to you was told by Clarence to his drug dealer in True Romance (although it was about big tits and a p*ssy that tastes like ice cream), but only in jest.

I mean, if you want me to call you a pinche puto, then I certainly won't be goaded to do so (even in fun).

Or if you wanted me to call you a Rusted Ford floating brown spot of flotsam, awaiting asylum from Castro, then no ... I wouldn't go there.

Again, not even in humor.

I wouldn't even call you the result of a Cuban Bearded Bitch Smack (also in jest) .... because that's just mean ... and besides, Castro is going to die soon, his brother will take over and all I f*cking need is an international incident over a simple, jestful misunderstanding.

So, I'm going to be the bigger man and accept you tossing my unwashed salad. In jest.

A word of advice, just give up now. Maybe come back in a few weeks and people will have forgotten about you by then. You aren't going to win any arguments by being a dik with bad spelling and grammar.
