HELP NEEDED!! Signatures needed to oppose parole of suspect in attack on Gang Detectives Rick Delfin and Daryle Black
On April 29, 2000, at approximately 11:08 pm, Long Beach Police Department Gang Detectives Rick Delfin and Daryle Black were on routine patrol in the area of Lime Avenue and 19th Street when they were shot with an AR-15 assault rifle by a local gang member. Detective Delfin suffered gunshot wounds to the right side of his body and lower extremities resulting in lifelong disabilities. Detective Black, a Marine Corps veteran and dedicated police officer, died as a result of the injuries he sustained in this unprovoked attack. He was just 33 years old at the time of his murder.
On January 15, 2020, Miguel Angel Camacho, one of the three suspects convicted of this attack, will be going before the Parole Board for consideration of an early release from his life sentence. We need your help in opposing this early release.
It is imperative that we show our support for the Delfin and Black families as well as make it clear to the Parole Board that we believe Miguel Angel Camacho still presents a danger to society and should serve out the term of life in prison as prescribed by the sentencing court.
