Spokane struggles to make sense of a WWII veteran's death
Los Angeles Times ^ | August 24, 2013 | By Rick Rojas

...As the story of Belton's death traveled far from Spokane — an elderly white man, a World War II vet injured in Japan, killed, police said, by two black teenagers — a vocal contingent has speculated that race could be a factor. They echoed a similar contention about a shooting days earlier in Oklahoma, in which three teenagers are accused in the killing of a college baseball player from Australia as he was jogging.

How can that be?

This type of thing has been going on for a long time, it is now news due to Trayvon Martin and alternative media highlighting it. The optics are slowly changing, unfortunately it has taken decades.

The racial grievance industry ought to have been careful what it wished for: it sometimes happens nothing is half so painful as the truth.

So, Spokane, you have two feral black 16 year olds beat an 88 year old WW2 vet to death and no one can see there was a RACIAL motive? How about pulling your PC heads out of your bung holes and face facts: we have a problem with feral black males that rape, assault, maim, and murder.

The MSM, the politicians, and law enforcement collectively whitewash crimes and bury the news. Blowback is coming and it may take the form of Committes of Vigilance hunting down the perps and adminstering “street justice”. It is obvious the so-called criminal justice system will not. Heck, they won't even admit there's a problem.

I recommend they think, “Revenge for Trayvon”. The “hoodie” boys and girls on the floor of the House and Senate, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton can fill them in on how that works.

On the local news this AM they were covering this story. Interviewed by un-captured boys uncle who said he was good kid, smart, and well liked, who never showed violence against anyone. Same old line from family members as all the other perps across the country....

I don’t know that the motive was race either. Considering that elderly blacks are more likely than elderly whites to be crime victims it could easily have been an age rather than race thing.

How about cleaning up the human filth that permeates your cities Spokane? That would make sense out of it.

Where is the struggle? In refusing to believe that America’s urban areas are riddled with underaged black thugs who KNOW they cannot get a death penalty? Who KNOW that Obama supports their efforts by his absolute support and condemnation of those perpetrating white-on-black crime while actively ignoring black-on-white crimes?

It is no struggle for us out here in real America - one where we can carry a gun and confront you when you attack us. Yes, JUST LIKE ZIMMERMAN DID WITH ST. TRAYVON. You guys out there stuggling had better get used to it - you cannot dominate the politics of this country in every locale, so you’d better stick to your cities.

And they didn’t shut down Spokane with a massive police presence (martial law) like during the Boston Marathon manhunt.

Hmmmmmmm...

"Spokane struggles to make sense of a WWII veteran's death"

I see this same deceptive, stupid statement every time Negroes wantonly murder white Americans. It's used to cover up the black racist anti-white component of the crime so whites won't get to angry over it. It's sort of like the "blame it on society" excuse for criminal behavior.

So all of you silly white people just continue to "struggle" over what's going on around you and keep watching the NFL on Sunday.

Struggle? Let me end I for you Spokanians. 2 black thugs found an easy victim, instead if robbing him and being in their way, they decided to beat the crap out of an “evil old white man” as they have been taught be society. Until black culture realizes they are perp straying most of the evil and crime in America, nothing will change.

The answer to “making sense” is the black WAR on whitey.

Makes it no less horrific.

“...struggles to make sense...”

Only libtards would be confused, if they cared at all. Seems clear to me.

Any Spokanites on this thread? Having lived in and around Spokane from 1976-1980, I remember it as generally a pretty nice city... the only area resembling a ‘hood seemed to around 24th and Jackson.. Have other parts of it gone feral as well?

If Spokane is having a hard time figuring it out, I'm sure they could talk to the folks in Seattle.  I'm sure the Seattle residents don't find it too tough to face the reality they have helped plant, water, cultivate, and harvest.

Lefties, this rests at your feet.  A pox on you.

"— a vocal contingent has speculated that race could be a factor."

Oh give us an effin' break for a change !!

A racism machine headquartered in Chicago has been working for the past fifty years to move black folks onto democrat plantations, convince them to hate white folks in general instead of their neighborhood criminal scum in particular, and believe that being a ho or a thug is the greatest thing they can aspire to, and someone "speculated" that race could be a factor?

Black kids who think homicide is the coolest thing they can do didn't pick out a Barry White look alike to murder for the Hell of it or a random elderly black guy to beat to death. They singled out exactly the sort of people they've been taught to hate since they were infants.

If they weren’t so blindingly liberal they’d have no trouble “making sense” of it. It was a racially motivated attack by two Black cowards on one 89 year old White war hero. Anymore questions dummies?
