the gannett/town talk is reporting today that the fraternal order of police has named rep. chris hazel as their 'legislator of the year.'
this is very fitting because according to a press release obtained by the town talk, fop legislative committee chairman james gallagher said "representative hazel was the obvious choice for this award because of his dedication to passing essential legislation that protects the rights of law enforcement officers in the state of louisiana." this must be due to representative hazel's hb1129 now act 654 in which rep. hazel threw up a stumbling block to make it harder to investigate crooked cops.
rep. hazel might be the fraternal order of police 'legislator of the year,' but hes certainly no legislator of the year or friend to rank and file louisiana citizens.
