One suspect, Demetrius Glenn, 16, is in custody for the beating murder of Delbert Belton, an 88-year-old World War II vet.
Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, is the other suspect in the brutal killing. As of late Friday night, he remains at large.
Glenn and Adams-Kinard allegedly killed Belton with flashlights. They bludgeoned him to death. How could they?
Are they completely without a conscience?
Look at them. Evil incarnate.
From the Daily Mail:
Thursday night, police arrested Demetrius Glenn, 16, in connection to the slaying of 88-year-old Delbert Belton, who was savagely beaten with flashlights in the parking lot of his regular bar in Spokane on Wednesday.This is horrific. Two 16-year-olds killed an 88-year-old with flashlights. They beat him so savagely that he died.
...Friday afternoon, authorities named a second suspect in the killing, identified as 16-year-old Kenan Adams Kinard. He currently remains at large.
Police told Belton's daughter-in-law, Bobby, that he was beaten with heavy flashlights in the assault which left him bleeding 'from every part of his face'.
Witnesses to the attack said that Belton, who was going to play pool, was outside the Eagles Lodge at around 8pm when two male suspects set upon him.
A friend said the veteran had just pulled up and was waiting for a female friend so she didn't have to walk in alone.
...Glenn faces a first-degree murder charge and one count of robbery. The local station KHQ reported that he will be tried as an adult.So these thugs were known threats to the community, yet they were out on the street.
The teen has an extensive juvenile criminal history, which includes malicious mischief, fourth-degree assault, driving without a license and riot with a deadly weapon charges.
Adams-Kinard also has had a few run-ins with the law, The Spokesman Reviewreported. He was convicted of third-degree theft and fourth-degree assault in June.
Police Chief Frank Straub said Adams-Kinard should be considered a threat to the community and should not be contacted. He urged anyone who sees him or has information on his whereabouts to call 911 at once.
Glenn turned himself in to police custody through his attorney just before 10pm Thursday. Officers noticed that the teen had an abrasion on his right hand, according to an affidavit.
It's a tired, old question, but here it is: Where were their parents?
...Glenn, who spells his first name as 'Demetruis' on social media sites, described himself on his Twitter account in this manner: 'I Play Foot-ball,Run Tracc [sic],Get Money Do What i do,im a guy but i like the show keeping up with the kardashians.'Glenn needs to update his profile. He should add cold-blooded killer of an elderly man.
According to Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub, the murder wasn't racially motivated.
Neither was the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case. That didn't stop the race-baiters, including Obama, from making it all about race.
However, Straub insists that race is irrelevant in this case. In other words, no talking about race when it comes to Belton. That's off limits.
More details, from KREM 2 News:
Police Chief Frank Straub held a brief press conference Friday about the investigation into the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran. Straub stressed that the beating was not racially motivated.Glenn and Adams-Kinard showed Belton no mercy.
...Officers arrested Demetrius Glenn, 16, Thursday night in Spokane. He and Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, do have gang ties according to Straub. Both teenage suspects are African American. However, Straub said the attack was not racially motivated.
...Chief Straub said the two suspects were looking to commit a robbery in North Spokane on Wednesday night near Francis and Lidgerwood. Straub said that instead the suspects beat Belton with a flashlight outside of the Eagles Ice-A-Rena.
...Sources told KREM 2 News that Demetrius Glenn has a lengthy criminal history. He was convicted of assault and riot and was supposed to be in court on August 28th for another charge.
...Court Documents also revealed Friday Belton was found at the scene of the assault lying in his vehicle with his body wedged between the front bucket seats. Detectives said a broken flashlight was recovered in the car.
Investigators said Belton was attacked in the parking lot behind the arena, belonging to the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He had just arrived in his car to play pool with a female friend. A witness said she saw two young men run away from Belton's car.
No comment from the NAACP?
I guess the organization only gets involved in really important matters, like a rodeo CLOWN wearing an Obama mask.
Obama should comment on the killing of Belton. Maybe he could say the victim reminds him of his white grandfather, the man who raised him.
