Posted on 08/23/2013 6:36:31 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
An 88-year-old American World War II veteran has been beaten to death by two teenagers in an apparently random attack in the state of Washington.
Police found Delbert Belton suffering from severe head injuries in the parking lot of a pool venue he frequented in the eastern city of Spokane.
Belton, who had survived being shot in a leg during the Battle of Okinawa, was rushed to hospital but died hours later.
Police claim the retired aluminium company worker was just about to enter the Eagles Lodge pool venue and play the game he loved, when two men, believed to be aged 19 and 16, assaulted him.
"It does appear random," Spokane police Lt Mark Griffiths told reporters. "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."
Widowed for a few years, Belton reportedly went to the Eagles Lodge at least twice a week, to have a game and meet friends he used to work with at the local Kaiser aluminum factory.
According to his friends, who called him "Shorty", he had never had an altercation outside the lodge before.
"I don't understand how somebody could do this. I really don't," Ted Denison, Belton's best friend for 23 years, told local news channel KXLY.
Belton served in the US Army in the Pacific during WWII. Police are on a manhunt for the two suspects and have released pictures of them taken at the crime scene.
It is the second random killing to shock America in recent days.

They were just bored dontchaknow
I can’t wait till they catch these “sons of 0bama” and they spend a little time in the big house. I’m guessing some skinheads may want to “converse” with them.
Are we allowed to describe the teenagers and how they look like? /s
We have to get this news from across the pond.
The Stateside Isvestia Press will spike the story, or at least bury it in the d-section.
Ben Stein proposed a reflection and answer to this question.
This is a part of the breakdown of the black youth in America. It has zero to do with the Second Amendment ... This is a crisis. Absent parents. The gang control of thought. The scourge of drugs. These have created a catastrophe for the black community. That is an immense part of the youth of this nation ... They are totally confused, absolutely immoral black kids who have grown up with the complete absence of a sense of right and wrong.
Buck & Ball is devastating.
Soft target of opportunity. Regular citizens need to begin to learn and practice OPSEC, starting with traveling with a partner and arming themselves to the maximum degree permitted by local ordinance or state statute.
Beating an old man to death for what? These thugs need to be hunted down and promptly punished. I hate to say that vigilante justice might be warranted....shoot to kill.
The animals are not afraid to be animals any more.
Hell is real. It's better to send them there, than to let them bring it here.
Let what happens to them next be an example to those who want to follow in their ways.
It already is now and look at what we and they are bringing into our world as a result. We've come full circle.
Time to return to the old ways of dealing with the evil among us.
“Are we allowed to describe the teenagers and how they look like? /s”
Two young Amish boys.
“These thugs need to be hunted down and promptly punished.”
I believe my Grandmother on this one. “Take them to the field and horse whip them”.
Three years ago in Oregon I was involved in something very similar.
Three “Obama Voters”, all over 6’ and in 20’ were threatening a older retired couple.
I jumped in between them, reached down deep within myself and firmly told them to move on.
I’m pretty sure they thought I was packing. I was not.
Probably not one of my wiser moves but it felt right at the time.
WHEN will it be TIME?
This man fought for your freedom, scum!
Delbert Belton could’ve been my grandpa...
Now somebody tell me why I don’t need a automatic rifle with a large magazine with a bunch of THUGS coming at me like this bunch. . . . .
It was also on the local network news channels here, and NBC News last night (western addition)....
Sir, you have the post of the day. Precisely what i have been thinking.
I would put a horse attached to each limb and then whip the horses.
Morons. They should be off the street for as long as possible - life, hopefully.
Ropes are cheaper, reusable, and recyclable.
BTW I agree with you entirely, but the State intends for you & I to bare our throats for their feral scum clients.
We need to outlaw both fists and beating people to death.
Plus we, need background checks on hands and a 24hour waiting period to purchase gloves.
The are going to be so many Sons O’ Bama that we’ll have to protect the “Skinheads”.
So that's what SOB means !!
So now you have:
The D.C. Blacks
The Black Disciples
The New Black Panthers
The United Blood Nation
Are we allowed to describe the teenagers and how they look like?
It says men this time?

Not sure how that would’ve help the victim in this case. Chris Lane was shot AT THE BACK while he was jogging.
My dad is the same age, a Vet of WW II., He had me late in life. If anyone hurt him, I couldn’t begin to tell you the agony I would inflict on on the perp, other then my parents told me it’s unladylike to use that language, and you kind folks would ban me and Zot me.
I’m so upset over this, my prayers to the poor mans friends and family he deserved better.
Survived foreign war. Couldn't survive the "United States." We all fall down.
I sincerely believe that there is nothing Obama and Holder would like better.
They would love to see their racist attitudes and policies and the resultant black on white violence finally push whites to the breaking point.
They constantly whine that everything is about white racism and hate - in their minds a white backlash against feral black street animals would validate their accusations.
The race pimps tried to escalate the St. Tyrone case to that point but fell short. Yet they did manage to incite blacks enough to further embolden them. These latest killings are the result of the race pimping in the St. Tyrone case by Obama, Holder, Jackson, Sharpton and their kind.
Welcome to the jungle.
This is what LBJ’s “Great Society” looks like.
What a nightmare. It makes me sick.
When we finally see TV face pics , they’ll be their elementary school pictures.
One teen is in custody this morning.
True, but I don’t think ropes send the message to wannabe’s like public guillotine would...I once read somewhere that the head would live for a couple of seconds, and in particular cases,the executioner would hold it up where it could see it’s body. I have no idea if that is true or possible though.Just the thought of a guillotine should give these little gang-bangers the willies...
If Obama and Holder finally succeed in starting a war, it won’t end well for their side. Good black folks are going to have some choices to make,since the next civil war/revolution will be divided alot along racial lines, among other things. And Patriots may have to accept help from groups that they consider unsavory. All remains to be seen, but incidents like this are certainly fueling the fire.
He left out a culture that teaches the children that they are unwanted, and that killing unwanted people is a civil right.
Obamas, Medias Double Standard On Interracial Shootings
the obvious solution to the problem of black youths being viewed as a problem is to get black youths to stop being a problem.
No, my college profs would tell you its white privilege.
You are on the wrong story.
