    Default WWII vet beaten to death by "youths"

    Where is Rev Al?

    Photos of the suspects....http://www.kxly.com/news/spokane-new...z/-/index.html




    SPOKANE, Wash. -WWII veteran Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten and left for dead by two teens at the Eagles Lodge in Spokane on Wednesday evening.


    Belton, 89, died from the injuries he suffered in the beating Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center.
    Witnesses say the 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 male suspects attacked him.
    Belton died from his injuries Thursday at Sacred Heart Medical Center.
    "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.
    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.
    Belton's wife passed away several years ago.
    Spokane police are looking for two male suspects in the attack. They said the suspects are African Americans 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.
    Police investigating the deadly attack on Belton are also working to obtain surveillance footage from the scene

    I'm not shocked by this. Fucking sad story. A damn WW2 vet that kicked ass and protected our country and was a total bad ass. But the feral humans took his life for no reason. Just another day in the zoo.

    RIP Shorty! Out.

    One reaction noted, “The left can’t blame this attack on guns and the NRA."
    Stories on KXLY and in the Spokesman Review newspaper are garnering reactions from people who are tired of what they claim is a double standard in reporting “black-on-white” crime, though this might also be construed, as one newspaper reader asserted, a crime against the elderly. There is no indication that race played a part in this attack.

    God I am so tired of this. What a terrible, terrible thing.

    For once and for all, here's what it really comes down to. There is a sensitivity to violence towards Blacks because of the history of this country. Slavery, Jim Crow, legalized lynchings...these and other factors are why Blacks are what's called a protective class. I completely understand why there is a difference in coverage and tone.

    But the vast majority of Whites are not racist and don't even think much about equality because it's such a non-issue for them.

    I'm becoming more and more convinced that the divisiveness going on right now is never going to change. Why? There will always be racism. There will be some Whites that will always hate Blacks. In turn, some Blacks will be racist against Whites (even though academia and the left don't believe in so-called "reverse racism"). Because of this, the current government policies will continue, and the problems in the Black community will continue--disproportionately poor, disproportionately victims and perpetrators of crimes, high illegitimacy, high unemployment, etc--in order to continue to try and make a level playing field. It's also good business for Sharpton and Jackson to have divisiveness. It's also good for the bases of both political parties.

    Because of that, the vast majority of Whites who are not racists will continue to point out the fact that there is a double standard and that racial harmony cannot be achieved with a double standard.

    This is the cycle we're in. There is racism-->Government must continue to do something about it-->Nothing changes-->Double standards exist-->Whites point out the double standard-->The double standard exists because there is racism...and so on.

    How do we solve this?

    1) End the drug war. Stop locking up Blacks at disproportionate rates. Stop giving those at inner-city schools an easy out by running drugs (and guns) for high profit on the black market.

    2) School choice. Give parents the ability to send their kids to schools that are much, much better than the atrocious schools predominately attended by Blacks in the inner cities.

    3) Completely overhaul the welfare program. Implement the negative income tax in place of all other social programs and incentivize people to earn more by being more productive.

    This might be true... But I'm not sensitive to it anymore.

    Agreed.

    Not sure how anyone believes a double standard creating resentment will decrease racism. The lack of logic is astounding.

    Think this needs a repost, simply because it's truth! One of the best, "Talking Points" memo that he has ever done. But, that's my opinion only.
