Posted on 08/27/2013 7:08:07 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Delbert Belton, the 88-year-old World War II veteran who was savagely beaten to death last Wednesday by two teenagers, may have been murdered because he tried to defend himself and fight back while he was being robbed. "Our information is that the individual fought back and that may have made this, you know, a worse situation," Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub said on Monday.

Stand and Deliver. They are lucky the cops got them before his brother Eagles did.
They are preparing a push to make self defense illegal. Only the govt should be allowed to use force.
Well ok, criminals too.
BTW, Frank Straub....SUCKS!
Try to defend yourself and you deserve what you get?
The difference with GZ is conceal carry and the willingness to pull the trigger when it’s you or your life.
Sounds like Britain, but this is a diversion from another kill whitey situation by Obama's sons.
I recall reading stories from England where a victim is prosecuted for defending himself and thinking, “Thank God I live in U.S.”.
This is the new narrative by the corrupt media.
Take your beating and don’t fight back.
An 88 year old man was such a threat to these young animals. How dare he not take his beating gracefully.
And of course these young pillars of society would never tell a lie.
Obama’s 6th commandment: Thou shalt not defend thy self.
So its illegal to defend yourself?
A despicable utterance from police officer.
Oh - but he isn't a police officer... he's a scum-sucking political PC police chief.
This, then would be expected behavior.
“may have been murdered because he tried to defend himself”
Oh... that’s okay then....
God, we’re going the way of Briton.
A colleague of mine from South Africa told me cops in SA would prefer while defending yourself if you shoot to kill!
If you just maim, injure the mugger, you (and the cops) have to go through a whole load of shit bureaucracy/red tape and the mugger ends up benefiting!!
Has the PC ever been on the street? Or was he a book cop who make his way up taking tests?
Didn’t mean it to be a diversion but I’ve been seeing this more and more. Where they question the victims response to being attacked and make excuses for the criminal.
Their message is these two cretins were justified in beating the old man because he dared to resist their efforts to redistribute his wealth.
Yeah, he sounds like a real gem. Delbert should’ve made those feral punks look like Swiss cheese.
“stand your ground” gets another white cracka killed
thats their story and they’re stickin’ to it
why maybe that selfish ol man even said a nasty rasis word or looked at them mean when they cracked their mag lights over his cracka skull
dayum peeps, you got to know when its jus’ an axx whooping
Should he have refused to defend his country in WWII if he cannot defend his own life today?
Time to step up, Spokane. Replace this idiot.
..and watching my back at all times..
...I am refusing to be killed...just for the fun of it.
..killers must be forced to have a "reason"...
I just think we should all be grateful that the old man wasn’t armed. He might have hurt the two honor roll students.....and that would be racist!
Random lynchings by jungle savages is now the legal norm.
Not for long.
Wasn’t that one of the messages that came out of the Trayvon saga, that everyone should take their beat downs by blacks? Hear we have another instance where black kids should have been allowed to conduct their cultural exchange without interference.
This police chief needs to be fired.
I think I’ve heard about enough “take what’s coming to you cracker”
My first rule of gun safety—Have a gun
A candidate’s position on guns/self defense should be a set in stone litmus for support.
And any conservative running should make it a vocal part of all their ads/communication.
We have to start speaking up and telling these idiot libs NO. And Never compromise.
From the police perspective, yes you do. The only ones allowed to use force are police. Self defense is a serious crime in many jurisdictions. NYC is probably the most egregious example (Bernhard Goetz) but apparently that attitude is widespread
you know, a worse situation," Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub said on Monday
From personal experience, I was assaulted by a bum in Seattle I managed to get him to depart screaming curses at me (I hurt his feelings) I called the cops to report it, and the assholes started hassling me about what I did.
Being too old, fat, and slow to physically fight thugs, I carry a .357 loaded with hollow points to do my fighting for me.
So it’s the victim’s fault?
Tis used to be the attitude toward rape victims. “Just cooperate, relax, and wait until it’s over.” WRONG! Do not volunteer to be a victim.
Look at the treatment Zimmermann received for defending himself from a brutal assault. It seems that many people think that us “crackers” should just take our beating and like it, otherwise they will just kill you.
I watch the TV show “Panic 911” and have seen a woman hiding in her closet with an intruder in the house, she is armed but waiting for the police to arrive. The intruder is trying to get into the closet and the 911 responder tells her to ‘put down her gun now!’. I do not understand it, I guess 911 is afraid of being sued by the perp.
Clayton Williams lost his bid for TX gov for saying that. I was helping him with his campaign until he made that statement. I still voted for him while holding my nose.
Excellent! I'd like to steal that for my tagline.
I too must rely on Mr. Smith & Mr. Wesson to do my public speaking when serious social work is imminent. And if I hear,
“This is for Trayvon!!”
I hope I’m fast enough to respond with BANG!
“And this one’s for Delbert!”
If you're white. Completes the sentence.
Straub was quick to maintain Beltons innocence in the matter. I'm not being critical of Mr. Belton, he clarified. We certainly encourage individuals to fight back, and he should have. But it shouldn't have happened to begin with.
Defending yourself while being robbed and beaten by thugs is Frowned Upon.
I bet mayor of Spokane has the police chief on the carpet this morning giving him a crash course on what not to say to the media
just stupid probably not intended to come out like that
Sounds to me that either he realized he said something stupid and tried to backtrack, or said what he believes and then of course, knowing that it won’t immediately be accepted by the public, throws in the second sentence. If the public hears it often enough, they become accepting of the belief, and the need for the second sentence won’t be needed.
Go on the Spokane Police web page. There is an e-mail form there you can use to tell Chief Straub it is wrong to blame the victim in this murder.
What cowardly little worms they are to beat up an elderly man. As you can see someone their own age is too much for them. I wonder if they used to beat up kindergartners when they were seniors in high school?
They should have to wear the scarlet “P” on their clothes when they go to prison.
take the beating you had coming , cracker and dont get uppity about it.
The feral yutes have learned to avoid the leftard creation of hate crime charges, rob the victim after beating them.
(Its like getting paid to do what you love!)
The government mentality at work. Self defense is a serious crime in the minds of most government types. Only they are allowed the luxury of effective self defense. As long as none of their beloved jackboots are hurt everything is fine with the government.
