Still awkward, George’s little-boyish mini-legs were seen dangling.”

The allegation was denounced as bizarre by victim Delbert “Shorty” Belton’s family and even dismissed by the defense lawyer for the other teen accused in the Spokane, Wash., case, which has drawn national attention.

A Gallup poll the month after the verdict found 61% of blacks felt more civil rights laws should be on the books, as opposed to 53% the month before the verdict.

    ...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.
