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, 89, died from the injuries he suffered in the beating Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center.
Witnesses say the 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.
Belton died from his injuries Thursday at Sacred Heart Medical Center.
"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.
He loved playing pool, even though he claimed he was no good at it and had been a member of the Eagles Lodge for the last four months. In addition to playing pool he loved working on cars.
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 are also working to obtain surveillance footage from the scene.
Give the LSM what little credit they are due. At least they were identified as ‘African American’, rather than just ‘teens’. Of course the CCTV screen shots kind of ensure that all who read the story will know that they were not Caucasian or ‘White’ Hispanic.
Might wanna start with Zero,
After reading this story, if you are white or Asian, and remain unarmed, I don’t have the vocabulary to describe the degree of idiocy from which you suffer.
There seems to be a whole lot of “justice for travon” lately. This is unacceptable. Do these feral filth really want what is starting to boil over?
The lefties will celebrate, as this saves on the cost of a ‘Death Panel’ to review Mr. Belton’s case. See? They ARE trying to keep costs down! (angry sarcasm)
It’s time for the US military police to arrest Barack Obama and his entire corrupt administration for a number of outrageous criminal offenses including treason.
Sure as hell glad I didn’t see this,,,there would be two dead yutes.
They are too blind to see that they are being used by certain of the Dhimmicrats, working for their ‘father’ to try to start a race war that will destroy the US.
Jesus will not be where these two killers are going. Himmler, maybe, but not Jesus, or Moses, or any other decent person.
More feral black teens show their bravery by beating an old man to death.
Yeah , nice ole geezer , probably looking for friendship at the Lodge. He probably has some children and grands somewhere .
Another senseless murder you won’t be hearing about on the evening news because the perps are black..absolutely disgusting..this man was a war hero just to be taken out by thugs..RIP
Horrible. Obama’s sons are springing up all across the nation.
Every time I look at Mr. Belton’s photo, I think of my Dad who also served in WWII.
I could plug these two monsters myself.
