Police arrest juvenile in fatal attack on WWII veteran
UPI ^

Posted on 08/23/2013 11:52:40 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A juvenile has been arrested in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran, police in Spokane, Wash., said Friday.

He has been charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree murder, CNN reported.

Police said Delbert Belton was found beaten outside an Eagles Lodge Wednesday. The attackers were described as black males, ages 16-19, both wearing black clothing, The (Spokane) Spokesman-Review reported Thursday.

Belton, called "Shorty," by friends, fought in the Battle of Okinawa in 1945, friend Ted Denison said.

"He was a tough old bird, I'll tell you that," he said.

Police said in a release they responded to a call of an assault at the Eagles Lodge Wednesday night. When they arrived, they found Belton in his car with serious head wounds. He was taken to an area hospital where he died Thursday.

Belton was waiting at the Eagle Lodge for a female friend because he didn't want her to enter the club alone, said Lillian Duncan, another longtime friend.

"He was so awesome," she said. "Anybody that didn't get to know him missed out on a wonderful angel in their life."

there appeared to be no personal motive for the fatal attack.

And society should have no “personal motive” in stretching their damn necks.

What a gentleman. Had he not waited for her, she might have been their victim instead.

One shot to the back of the head. Quick, and effective. They should do it “Pay per view.” I would definitely pay.

Very sad. Had Mr. Belton shot the kid, he'd be branded a racist, vigilante, child-killer, and would be on trial for his life...but at least he'd be alive.

The Media, Sharpton, Jesse the Jackass, Obama, and the whole damn Justice Dept. bear a great deal of responsibility for fueling attacks by these thugs.

Yes, they need to be put down. Unfortunately, there are not enough men left to insure the scales are balanced for the taking of this eighty nine year old veteran’s life.

This nation is becoming a nation of wimps. Go to the local mall or grocery store or Starbucks and look at the “men”. It is difficult to tell the difference between men and women much of the time.

Too expensive. Rope can be used over and over again.

You look at that face and you just know he's been told his whole life that he's a victim.

In a week, we have had two henious racial murder events which have had the same racial undertones as James Byrd, Jr.

Where's the universal national outrage?

Race relations are probably at their lowest point since the '60's, and are only a flash point or two away from getting really ugly.
