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.

Washington still has the death penalty—barely— (five executions since 1976)—if convicted I would hope the perpetrators might contribute to the common good by making it seven.

Unfortunately, some black street thug kids are now calling this type of killing “Polar bear hunting.”

Hunting Polar Bears should be dangerous. Make sure you are a dangerous bear when you are out and about.

Who incites these black-on-white murderers? Their friends and families? The lucrative civil rights and victims' industries? Sharpton? Jessie Jackson? ABCNNBCBS? The Nytimese? The Latimese? Who?

All of the above are trying to outdo each other.

But at least we are learning now how a peaceful country can find itself in civil war with genocidal intent.

“...They said the suspects are African Americans between 16 and 19 years old.”

WHAT a shock!!!

This regime has been instigating young blacks for five years. There’s a special hell that awaits for them.

In Post #8 there’s a surveillance photo.

Why have they obscured the suspect’s mouth with a digitized rectangle?

Is this some new Obamatollah law enforcement technique called “Help the perp evade capture?”

I base my comment on the Great White Thrown Judgement in Revelation 20:11-15, where many Christians believe that it is Jesus opening the Book of Life.

"Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is wthe second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."

In Matt 7:23, Jesus speaks to false prophets who prophesied in His name “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’" Based on that, I believe that it is Jesus who will pass sentence on non-Believers, so these two hoodlums WILL meet Jesus, unfortunately (for them) as the Lion of Judah.

In any case, they WILL meet their maker, either to be judged or rewarded. Best for them, if they have an advocate, rather than going it alone and suffering judgement.

Most likely. I find it no coincidence in the least that these attacks have stepped up ever since the Dear Leader all but gave the go ahead. Let’s no forget what the fascist leftist censoring press has tried to bury: Obama commenting how the white man gave him hell 30 years ago even though he was a pampered spoiled brat going to Columbia at the time, one of the most liberal schools in the country. And by the way: I had to bust my ass all through College, taking every job I could get my hands on, even delivering subpoenas to drug dealers New york city and almost getting my ass shot off. What jobs did Obama hold while in school? Someone name me one.

All we know about this putz is he went to Columbia and Harvard without holding a single solitary job, then getting a job talking on the phone when he graduated....Oh excuse me, getting a job as a “Community organizer” - then he is inexplicably elected Senator after promoting himself as being born in Kenya which was all but forgotten about by the fascist leftist censoring press when he decided to do the world a favor and run for POTUS.

I’m from this area....the first I read about it the online tv news had it as two young men, gave approximate ages, gave descriptions of what they were wearing, even guessed their weight, yet left the “black” part out of it....

“God’s laws” can’t go anywhere, even partially obeyed, without God’s grace. To focus on “God’s laws” is looking in the wrong place for the answer. The answer as always is in blessings of heaven and as far as getting these we’ve got the grudge against God not vice versa. We can’t budge a single curse by resting on our pride which we now are doing big time. We can budge a whole nation full of curses by resting on God’s love once more. It’s simple, the forgiveness with change of attitude is instant, no probationary period needed. Then we got to fight the demons that were invited in, but even then God has them by the tail and they are meant as drills as much as practical work. Who’s bigger, God or Satan? I’ve found out the answer to that question.

Thanks Obama.

You can blame Obama for supporting this behavior and making it legal, but the origin of the BLACK race troubles we currently have comes directly from OPRAH WINFREY and her role in ROOTS.

After watching that miniseries, most Americans who had black skin suddenly changed their whole culture to adopt the story of that movie to their lives.

After the show, they were African(first)-Americans. After the show, they all were given TRIBAL NAMES. After the show, they all knew they had genetic links to the Zulu Warriors and Princesses. (even Oprah had a DNA test conducted which proved she was the descendant of a ZULU PRINCESS, and even though the DNA tests can make no such determination. Money can buy lies)

The saddest part is that the book ROOTS is a complete plagiarism of a book written about the treatment of the Jews under Nazi occupation. The author was never called on it because 1. He was black, 2. It made billions of dollars.

White, Asian or Hispanic. Blacks have this insane hatred now, stirred up by Obama, of anyone who is not black.

I actually read a liberal commentator a couple of days ago say that Obama has divided this country more than any president, ever.
