A Better Mid-South: Agent Frazier

A Better Mid-South: Agent Frazier

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

You know how something really hits you when it happens in your hometown.

I had that experience this week when I heard about the shooting death of Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Agent, De'Greaun Frazier in Jackson, Tennessee.

Growing up in Jackson, I could never imagine someone shooting and killing a law enforcement officer.

But unfortunately, it has happened again while Agent Frazier was just doing his job -- trying to get drug dealers off the streets.

I want to thank Agent Frazier for making the ultimate sacrifice protecting us.  I want to thank his family for giving up so much.

And I want to thank you for coming out and giving to his family.

Nearly $15,000 was collected in one day to help Frazier's wife and children.

Do you have a message for Agent Frazier's family?  Please feel free to post it on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South or email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com.

Agent Frazier, thank you for working to make this A Better Mid-South.
