WWII Vet Beaten To Death By Two Black Teens

From ABC’s Spokane, WA affiliate, KXLY:

WWII vet, beaten by teens outside Eagles Lodge, dies

By Ian Cull, Rob Kauder | August 22, 2013 

SPOKANE, Wash. – WWII veteran Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten and left for dead by two teens at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane on Wednesday evening. Belton, 88, succumbed to his injuries Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Witnesses say Belton was in the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge at 6410 N. Lidgerwood, adjacent to the Eagles Ice-A-Rena, around 8 p.m. Wednesday when the two male suspects attacked him as he was about to head inside to play pool.

Police responded with K-9s to track the suspects’ scent but were not able to locate them.

"It does appear random. He was in the parking lot, it appears he was assaulted in the parking lot and there was no indication that he would have known these people prior to the assault," Spokane Police Major Crimes Detective Lieutenant Mark Griffiths said

"Shorty," as he was known by his friends at the Eagles Lodge, served in the U.S. Army in the Pacific during WWII and was shot in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa. He went on to work at Kaiser Aluminum at the company’s Trentwood plant for more than 30 years. Belton’s wife passed away several years ago

Spokane police are looking for two male suspects in the attack. They said the suspects are African Americans between 16 and 19 years old. One suspect was described as heavy set and wearing all black clothing. The other was described as being about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds. There was no description of what clothing the second suspect was wearing other than a silk do-rag.

Police investigating the deadly attack on Belton have also obtained surveillance footage from the scene…

Where is the outrage? In fact, where is the mainstream coverage? We have checked Yahoo News, but there’s nothing about this attack there. (Though there is the story "Doctors Investigate Indian Baby for Spontaneous Combustion.")

And where is Obama? Where are the Reverends? Where is the NAACP?

    The Atlanta paper couldn’t bring itself to ID the attackers:


    Let the punishment fit the crime, especially in this case.

    No ID means – Democrats or Blacks

      It took me 15 minutes to find but it’s well worth the effort.
      I sure hope he doesn’t mind me posting these, but they do cut right to the heart of the matter.

      The guy survives WWII only to be killed at home not by old age, not by his war wounds, but by feral blacks. This has been a bad week for the Ministry of Lies on the race front, first an Aussie baseball player gunned down by a pair of black teenagers and their wannabe friend because they were “bored” (and he was white), and an 88 year old WWII vet beaten to death by some Bix Noods with flashlights.
      Eric Holder said we were a “nation of cowards” when it came to discussing race, but when anybody tries to start a discussion about the absurd levels of black crime and violence given that they are only 13% of the population, his ilk and his guilty white liberal buddies shut it down immediately. To them, a discussion about race starts and ends with castigating white people for things that happened decades ago, while ignoring what is happening RIGHT NOW.
      I think people are starting to wake up a bit more, just by looking at the comments on news stories. The water carriers try to squelch it, as I will notice that certain websites will disable comments on ANY story involving black crime. Yes, talk on the internet does not translate to action, but it’s more than what was happening a few years ago. Maybe we’ve finally hit the right level of Negro Fatigue.

      And I also came across another of his comments….

      A long long time ago, in a galaxy far away, had something like this happened, a certain part of town would have found itself in flames as the result of this transgression by two of its residents. No, we don’t need to go back to those days, but there is something to be said when dealing with a group this is generally lower IQ and more prone to violence, force, and the threat of retribution, is something they DO understand.

      The truth will set us free!

      Mr. Shackelford is a real badass! ;-)

      Much as I’d like to claim credit for the nom de meme, it wasn’t me. There are other RS’s out there floating about. I simply stole it from Dale Gribble’s character on “King Of The Hill” some years ago.

      Still, they are well-done comments.

    • Noyzmakr says:

      Damn….I’m sorry RS. I just took it for granted.

      There’s also a RS at the The jawa Report that I just assumed was you.

      My appologies to everyone involved. Still, the guy has a point.
