Police arrest one juvenile male in beating of 88-year-old (Spokane)WW2 veteran
Q13 News (Seattle TV) ^ | 8/23/2013

Posted on 08/23/2013 8:53:08 AM PDT by llevrok

SPOKANE, Wash. — Police said they arrested one juvenile male in connection with the beating death of an 88-year-old WWII veteran Wednesday.

The suspect has been charged with first degree murder and first degree robbery. His name has not yet been released because of his age.

The other suspected killer is still on the loose.

The Spokane Police Department said in a press release officers responded to reports of an assault and found the victim in his car with serious head injuries on Wednesday evening. He later died in the hospital.

Authorities on Thursday released surveillance photos of the two suspects, who they describe as black males between the ages of 16 and 19.

Friends identified the victim as Delbert Belton, and say he was sitting outside a lodge for the Fraternal Order of the Eagles when he was attacked. He died in the hospital Thursday from head wounds.

KXLY-TV reports that Belton served in Army during World War II and was shot in the leg during the Battle for Okinawa. He was also a lifetime steelworker.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Spokane Police at 509-456-2233.

I just heard on the news that the victim was beaten with heavy mag light style flashlights.

Am I the only one who thinks there might be some kind of message there?

“His name has not yet been released because of his age. “

If one commits an adult crime, I don’t care the age.

He has been identified as Demetrius Glenn. Police say because of the seriousness of the crime, Police released his name, even if he is a juvenile.

Probably just an easily explained and legal club to carry ‘for their safety”. Like police tell people to do.

Instant excuse to avoid a weapons charge during a contact.

Bingo. Same for screwdrivers. Addicts carry socks, shoestrings, and copper scrubbers for the same reason. Easy to justify but useful for their desires.

He fought to defend his country when it was worth defending.

Now his country has rotted so much that he was murdered.

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. She found him by his vehicle badly beaten.

An eye witness. They will have the second piece of shit soon.

From a comment on the local CBS story:

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the many great contributions of the Black community and their culture to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture.

Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real Estate values are fueled by the influx of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nurturing of these communities, an example of all they have achieved by their enthusiasm for self improvement through hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

Presently enriching the cities of Spokane WA, Chicago IL, Philadelphia PA, Washington D.C., St. Louis MO, New Orleans LA, Los Angeles CA, Flint MI, Baltimore MD, Pontiac MI, Gary Ind., Newark NJ, Cleveland OH, Atlanta GA, Richmond VA, Memphis Tn, Birmingham AL, Camden NJ; and let’s not forget Detroit, the tourism capital of the world!

I once worked with an ‘educated’ 25ish yo that thought people should die at 60 and get out of the way. He was quite serious in that belief.

No stretch to see how the human garbage sans his ‘education’ see them as prey.

You would be surprised at how strong such memories are among blacks.

A couple years ago a black neighbor was here when I pulled my light out of the truck and he called it my “Malice Green signature series mag light”. I had never thought about it but he said that blacks talk about that sort of thing and pass it down for generations.

I hope they get the second perp quickly and safely.

If he still has a gun he may want to go out in a blze of glory and take innocent civilians and cops with him on his road to perdition.

Demetrius? That is a good caucasian name, no?---NO!

What's funny is that his parents likely had no idea where the name came from. They just decided it sounded like the other 'black culture' names which were attempts to mimic the 'royal family' names used in the movie ROOTS.

Oprah Winfrey started her climb to fame and fortune on that mini-series. It caused an extreme rise in 'white guilt' and was the crack that started the giant divide we see today. Suddenly , every Negro in America became an 'AFRICAN-American' (though most had no ancestors from Africa, nor had ever been there, and damn sure didn't want to visit. Every Negro was suddenly the descendent of a Zulu Warrior or Princess. (Oprah even got a DNA test that showed she was the direct descendant of a ZULU PRINCESS, even though there is no such 'test' or 'determination' that can be found in DNA to support that claim).

Just like most things about 'black culture', it was all a complete lie. The main concept for the book was a plagiarism of a book written about the treatment of Jews during Nazi Occupation.

Nobody 'called' Alex Haley on it because (1) he was 'black', and (2) it was making billions of dollars.
