R.I.P. Belle Ortega, A Leader In More Ways Than One
All of Houston was saddened by the death of Velia "Belle" Ortega, the first female Hispanic officer in HPD history.
After a lifetime of fighting crime, she died at 78 the victim of a drive-by shooting, which is a shitty way to go for anyone, but especially her. Our thoughts go out to the family.
Ortega not only pioneered her way onto the force, she absolutely rocked the beehive doing it, as the picture after the jump shows.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a hair-do.

You would definitely be taking no crap from anybody when you rolled up in that thing. Assuming you could get your hat on.
We never knew Ortega was the Oscar Gamble of HPD:
We hope you're up in heaven spraying the Aqua-Net, Belle.
