WWII veteran Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten and left for dead by two black teens at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane, WA, on the evening of August 21. The 89-year old Belton, died this morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center from the injuries he suffered at the hands of cowards. Do young men think it’s cool to beat up someone turning 90 who cannot defend himself? The worst generation is killing the best generation. Witnesses say Belton was in the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge at 6410 N. Lidgerwood, adjacent to the Eagles Ice-A-Rena, around 8 p.m. Wednesday when the two suspects attacked him as he was about to head inside to play pool. Police responded with K-9s to track the suspects' scent but were not able to locate them. It seemed to be a random attack and Belton did not know his attackers.
"Shorty," as he was known by his friends at the Eagles Lodge, served in the U.S. Army in the Pacific during WWII and was shot in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa. He went on to work at Kaiser Aluminum at the company's Trentwood plant for more than 30 years. Belton's wife passed away several years ago. He loved playing pool, even though he claimed he was no good at it and had been a member of the Eagles Lodge for the last four months. In addition to playing pool he loved working on cars.
Spokane police said the suspects are blacks between 16 and 19 years old. One suspect was described as heavy set and wearing all black clothing. The other was described as being about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds. There was no description of what clothing the second suspect was wearing other than a silk do-rag. Surveillance photos show the two men.
This incident occurred just days following the senseless murder of an Australian student, Christopher Lane who was killed on Monday in Oklahoma by three teens, one of whom has said they were just “bored.” Lane, who was visiting his girlfriend, was simply out jogging. The killers followed him in their car, approached him and shot him in the back. He probably heard nothing and saw nothing, just a loud bang and sharp pain to his back before he fell.
These incidents follow a series of escalating black on white crimes since the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Shockingly, the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, said he was not familiar with the murder of Australian jogger Chris Lane during Wednesday’s White House briefing. When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, “I’m not familiar with it, actually.” Later, he called it a tragedy. The White House needs to subscribe to the Internet or newspapers so they can keep up with the important stories of the day. Or do they want to get involved if it doesn't fit in with their political agenda?
President Obama is ignoring the black on white crime. He talked about Travyon on national TV and said if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. He successfully stirred up emotions of these black, unsupervised, angry youths who now seem to feel some kind of revenge for the killing of Trayvon. The Sharptons and the Jacksons of the Left seem to be on the side of the President. Is the Left using young black men to achieve their political ends? They're certainly not finding solutions, only stirring up emotions.
What’s really going on? Does President Obama hate white people? Maine Gov. Paul LePage, who has a history of making controversial statements, reportedly said that "Obama hates white people."
