Every Day Heroes: Anna Del Rio

Anna Del Rio has lost a daughter to crime and is now being harassed by a street gang because of her job as a dispatcher for Crime Stoppers. Think the L.A. resident is intimidated? Not Hardly. Del Rio, whose 20-year-old daughter was murdered a decade ago, awoke to find her garage door spray-painted with profanity and the numbers “187.” “187” is the police code for homicide. The gang has apparently confused working for Crime Stoppers as being the same as being a police informant. Del Rio took the job as a way to channel her grief about the loss of her daughter into something productive. In response to the vandalism, she has placed a picture of her daughter by her garage door as a makeshift memorial. Del Rio says she refuses to be intimidated by the people who vandalized her property. Police are investigating the incident.

  1. Here is someone that is actually “taking back their country” and not just paying lip-service to a right-wing cliche. Good for you Ms. Del Rio! We should all be so self-determined to correct injustice.

  2. I almost feel bad for the gangmembers… They’re probably so undereducated, they don’t stand a chance against the law, even with cops as stupid and unwilling as now.
