‘Beauty’ as she is referred to, ‘Brains’ based on her educational background and ‘Brawn’ as ‘she fling off di Gucci’ shoes and scaled down the escalator that was moving in an upward mode and flew away to NYC. I would like you to get a mental picture of that and then tell me you did not crack up with laughter. What else is there to do but laugh? If you do not realise that we live in a world where the millennials in this era are hell bent on living the Kardashian lifestyle, you clearly are a hermit who is stuck in prewar times. On second thoughts, not just the millennials but maybe 6 out of 10 persons want the Kardashian or Joneses lifestyle with the least amount of effort and at any cost. With that said, this case is really no different from the other reports of drug mules taking their chances. What makes this story a bit exciting is due to the drama that unfolded by ‘Ms Thing’ and her Gucci shoes. Yesssssss, cannot stop talking about the Gucci shoes.
As we have seen with previous outcomes in how USA justice works, I would not be surprised if she gets the maximum sentence. Somehow I do not believe America is concerned about the beauty of any suspected ‘druggist’ with Jamaican ties. I will say it over and over again. Our reputation precedes us and as long as we have Jamaican ties and break the law within the US jurisdiction, ‘dog ago eat wi supper’. Oh I am sure all things are possible but I will not advise you to hold your breath on this one. I for one am not embarrassed. I am a Jamaican, but all Jamaicans do not represent me regardless of their status in society. ‘Everybody deh pon dem own an a toot dem own horn. My girl can figet bout wearing Gucci where she ago en up. Since she ave youth pon ar side, she can wheel an come again wen she get let out. Mi hear sey wen som people get lock down a prison. Wen dem surface dem drop a story how dem did deh a fareign. Like how disya one yah high profile and mek di news big time an ar people dem a loud up di ting a fareign. My girl affi jus hol a corner an tek up di Bible an get di Jesus bug wey some jail bud seem to get’.
One last thing, not guilty and running in the same sentence ‘nuh mek one drop a sense. Betta u did sey u head did gwaan. After all plenty people a walk round dress to puss foot in di designer get up and stark staring mad. Dem flip in an out a sanity suh u coulda did choose dah road deh’. Instead you are pleading the inconvincible unless you intend to call names.
Former J’can beauty queen pleads not guilty to cocaine charge
(Jamaica Observer) Monday, April 25, 2016 19 Comments
City News Service says Marsha Gay Reynolds entered the plea Friday to possessing cocaine with intent to distribute.
Authorities say during a random security screening at LAX in March, the former Jamaican beauty queen left her carry-on luggage, kicked off her Gucci high-heels and bolted down an upward-moving escalator.
Authorities said they found about 70 pounds of cocaine in her luggage.Reynolds, who lives in Queens, later surrendered in New York.
If convicted, she faces 10 years in prison.
Reynolds is a graduate of New York University and is studying to be a nurse at Mercy College while working for JetBlue, the New York
Daily News reported. She has been suspended from her job.
At her bail hearing last month, former New York City Councilman Allan Jennings described her as “a very good young woman”.
“She’s done all the right things in life except for this one situation,” he said. “She may not have been fully aware of what was in the bags.”
