Delbert Belton, an 88-year-old World War II veteran, was beaten to death by two black teens.
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.Here's yet another horrific senseless murder perpetrated by black teens.
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.
..."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.
...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.
The thugs have no respect for life. They're animals.
The killing of Belton follows the murder of Christopher Lane, the case about which Obama supposedly knew nothing.
I wonder if Obama will claim to be in the dark on the murder of Belton, too.
We're supposed to believe that Obama doesn't know the lead story on Drudge? The killings of both Chris Lane and Delbert Belton were highlighted on that website. It's impossible to accept that the White House deputy press secretary and Obama wouldn't have a clue.
I wonder if Jesse Jackson will take to Twitter and comment that "this senseless violence is frowned upon."
Yes, our society "frowns upon" an innocent young man being gunned down. Jackson probably would say our society "frowns upon" the fatal beating of an 88-year-old man, too.
That language is thoroughly unacceptable. It's shameful.
It's not OK for Obama to ignore these hate crimes.
The beating of Belton is a problem for Obama and the Leftists. They can't blame guns. They can't exploit this man's death to call for stricter gun laws.
These cold-blooded murderers didn't shoot Belton. They beat him to death, for no apparent reason.
Again, EVIL. They can't claim the evil is loaded in the guns.
And the president of the United States, the same guy who was all over the Trayvon Martin case, to the point of saying "Trayvon Martin could have been me," is silent on the savagery committed by these thugs.
Obama and the other race-baiters can't ignore the fact that young black males are murdering whites. Of course, they are ignoring it, but that's wrong. They insist on focusing on race, so let's do that.
Silence or feigned ignorance or a "frowned upon" comment in reaction to these murders is disgraceful.
