Annotation: Beyond Lucky! How does a man like Brian "Glaze" Gibbs roll the dice and escape a death sentence, multiple life sentences, and survive the New York City drug wars that resulted in hundreds of people being killed too many of them by him.
He has been described as the murderer with a big heart and endless charisma. Beyond Lucky is Brian "Glaze" Gibbs' story it is a story of extraordinary violence, brutality and finally redemption.
What makes Brian's story so special is that individuals such as Leslie Caldwell, Assistant Attorney General, who fought to get him into the Witness Protection Program after Glaze confessed to five counts of murder, attempted murders and drug trafficking.
After serving only eight years and eight months for his crimes, he was given a new identity and made his home in Denver Colorado.
Unbeknownst to his neighbors he was a murderer in their midst.
It was time to save one more life his own. He walked a straight line working as a salesman at Nordstrom, a supervisor at UPS, and a security guard.
It's easy for Brian to say he has changed, been redeemed, but to have it confirmed by key individuals whom he is still in contact with such as: Joe Ponzi, Chief Investigator for the New York State District Attorney's Office and Leslie Caldwell.
FBI agents Richard Martinez and David Higgins who originally were Glaze's nemesis, fought to get him one more chance at life.
When asked why he was so fortunate, he responded, “Well, I wonder myself, but I'm not one to second guess God." Brian "Glaze" Gibbs, describes in great detail how despite being raised by a loving mother and being a church going child he became a major drug lord.
He started out as an enforcer for one of the most notorious drug lords and eventually became so bloodthirsty that his mentor and accomplices had to restrain him.
In Beyond Lucky Brian admits he was guided by a distorted logic and the peer pressure of the inner city and the desire to be Fly, shakin, money makin and stylin’.
It’s an extraordinary story, from the bloody streets of New York to being singled out by Joe Biden’s 1996 senate subcommittee investigating the effectiveness of the Witness Protection Program.
During that hearing US Government admitted it had given him the deal while believing he was responsible for fifty murders.
He was also allowed to keep thirty five million dollars from his trade as a drug lord. Brian "Glaze" Gibbs is the blueprint for every drug lord that that grew up in the Five Boroughs of New York City.
A story any wannabe criminal, drug dealer should read before hitting "The Street" wanting to make $40,000 a day.
