WWII vet, beaten by teens outside Eagles Lodge, dies

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, 88, succumbed to his injuries Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center.

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 male 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 does appear random. He was in the parking lot, it appears he was assaulted in the parking lot and there was no indication that he would have known these people prior to the assault," Spokane Police Major Crimes Detective Lieutenant Mark Griffiths said.

Belton died from his injuries Thursday morning 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. 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.

Shorty was Ted Denison's best friend of 23 years; the two played pool occasionally and worked on cars daily.

"He was always there for me when I needed him," Denison said. "We'd joke back and forth. We were always having fun, some sort of fun."

He was the kind of nice old man who'd become your friend in minutes.

"Probably every time I come into town, he'd have a project for me to do," Denison said. "I thought of him more as a dad than I did a friend really."

Now, with the suspects still at large and the Spokane Police Department working to track them down, Shorty's friends are hoping for justice.

"I don't understand how somebody could do this. I really don't," Denison said.

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 have also obtained surveillance footage from the scene. Click this link to see still images of the two suspects in the attack.

There will be no protest marches, no Al Sharpton speeches, no comments by the President saying this Vet could have been his grandfather. There will be no crowds chanting "I am Delbert". Very sad.

"The suspects were described as black males of average build, 16 to 19 years old, wearing black clothing and red sneakers. Police Lt. Mark Griffiths said they apparently attacked Belton at random."

Is this trend what savage niggas want for America? Keep it up and we'll start to see a resurection of lynchings soon enough.

How sad is it that twice in the past week we have stories of worthless pieces of hman trash killing others that were a rising athletic and served our country in WWII.

Two quality human beings removed from our planet because uneducated, angry negroes needed to express their savagry and hostilities.

You know, the only time in our country's history that niggers were worthwhile and productive was when they were enslaved......*hint hint*

Arrest made in Spokane beating death of WWII vet

By Ed Payne and Amanda Watts, CNN
updated 12:04 PM EDT, Fri August 23, 2013

(CNN) -- A juvenile has been arrested by Spokane police in connection with the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran this week, police said Friday.

The male suspect has been charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree murder.

The man -- Delbert Belton -- was brutally beaten and left for dead by two teens outside a lounge in Spokane, Washington, where he loved to go play pool.
The motive? Police don't have one. The teens appeared to have picked him at random, authorities say.

A retired aluminum company worker who served in the Pacific, Belton, friends say, took a bullet in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa. He survived that attack.

Delbert Belton survived being wounded in action during the Battle of Okinawa only to be beaten to death by two teens in Spokane, Washington.


But on Wednesday night, Belton -- affectionately called "Shorty" by friends for his height -- headed to the Eagles Lodge where he was a regular.
Police found him in the parking lot, with serious head injuries. He died Thursday.

"It does appear random," Spokane police Lt. Mark Griffiths told reporters. "It appears he was assaulted in the parking lot and there was no indication that he would have known these people prior to the assault."

Officers had been using dogs to search for the suspects, swept for fingerprints on the chain link fence in the area where they were last seen headed, and scoured through surveillance tapes.

It's the second time in a week that a seemingly random attack by teenagers has claimed a life.

On August 16, a 23-year-old Australian baseball player attending college in Oklahoma was gunned down in the town of Duncan.

One of three teens police arrested in that shooting said they carried it out because "we were bored and didn't have anything to do."

'All there is is bad news'

The randomness of the two attacks was not lost on Ted Denison, who's been friends with Belton for a long time.

"It's really depressing," Denison told CNN late Thursday night. "Seems that all there is is bad news."

The two men met more than 20 years ago and worked on cars together.
"We were mechanic buddies," the 42-year-old Denison said. "We just kind of kicked right along."

But the friends also hung out together outside the garage.
"We went dancing on Saturday nights," Denison said. "We went out to breakfast together."

Belton stopped by the Eagles Lodge two or three times a week. He played pool, but by his own admission, wasn't too good at it.

"He went up there and played pool, met with some of the guys he used to work with at Kaiser Aluminum," where he was employed more than 30 years, Denison said.

His wife died several years ago. The WW II vet is survived by a son, 65.

Waiting for a friend

On Wednesday night, Belton was outside the lodge waiting for a friend because he didn't want her to walk home alone, Lillian Duncan told the Spokesman-Review newspaper.

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

Outside the lodge Thursday, friends and strangers alike left flowers, flags and messages for Belton.

Belton never had problems outside the lodge before -- no threats, no altercations, Denison said.

"If he had, I would have made sure I was there."

And, Obama doesn't know anything about this.

It's just an old white guy, so why would he care, anyway?

Plus, they beat the old man to death with flashlights, so Obama can't even use the event as an excuse to shed a few tears and push more gun control.

you all operate under the notion that all black people think alike and are ghetto trash. Not our fault some of our leaders (Uncle Jessieand Al) have messed up motives/priorities or the media likes to focus on certain things now is it?

Why don't you hop off your high horse, b/c white folk have no room to be judging others and stop being punks and get a grip on reality. There are fucked up people in every race; yours included.

People are so tough online, that they don't have the balls to say this in public....smh. Forget Liberals and Obama, the Internet has turned us into a nation of pussies.

Silly

yea right. eric fought a lawsuit to keep it out of the media is more likely.

follow the money idiots

how much land did he have and who gets it ? how many whites are still alive in the area (predudistic, but real, sorry)

you know real criminals get young people to do crimes ?

first ask if there's a motive. often there is.

today's media: always gives you one fucking side of the story, never any important factors

for example: bombings. all these crazy bombers had a reason. seldom do they tell us why. the only time they do, they show only partly why, some crazy drivel: which is likely not the whole story

most of mass murders are cause by "anti-depressives" prescribed to people who didn't really have a need. those drugs have a STRONG history for that.

another common cause of mass murders (most of who are on "meds"): land theft. their county government is back stabbing them and stealing everything they have. they've cried for help. to who? the mother fuckers that set them up for a fall unfortunately

-----------------------------

a terrible thing. senseless? my ass. get back to work.

If the races were reversed Obama would have the FBI into the case and there would already have been looting and rioting. But not a peep from the great race baiters Obama, Jesse and Al. Where are all the I am Shorty tee shirts.

One of the defense lawyers said his client fell in with the wrong crowd. Newsflash your client is the wrong crowd.

all of this stuff that you idiots are posting is not new. this sort of thing happens all over the world, all of the USA, everyday. you are thinking its some sort of new epidemic but you are SEARCHING for stories like this and posting them here to share.


now, we can all blame it on zimmerman getting off for killing trayvon but that would just be stupid now would it? yes. because then it would make you responsible for being happy and praying and paying, hoping he would get off.

if he didnt get off none of this would be happening.

Whatever happened with Zimmerman (yes he got away with murder) has no bearing on this incident.

Kenan Adams-Kinard Claims He Was Buying Crack From Delbert Belton, WWII Vet Beaten To Death
Posted: 08/28/2013 2:17 pm EDT | Updated: 08/29/2013 1:20 am EDT

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/28/kenan-adams-kinard-buying-crack-delbert-belton_n_3830972.html?utm_hp_ref=crime

One of two teens suspected of beating a WWII veteran to death is now claiming he was buying crack cocaine from the 88-year-old prior to the incident.
v
Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, told friends that the death of Delbert "Shorty" Belton was the result of a drug deal that turned violent, according to an affidavit from prosecutors obtained NBC News.

Court documents also include a letter, allegedly signed by Adams-Kinard, that stated he and fellow suspect Demetrius Glenn, also 16, were buying a "zip of crack cocaine from Shorty" and then later "proceeded to sock him."

Spokane police, however, stated they "have no evidence to support that" and Glenn's lawyer told NBC that "it doesn't seem plausible to me."

Belton's daughter-in-law, Barbara Belton, called the crack claim "a bunch of crock" and asserted that Belton "was not into drugs."

Belton, who survived a bullet at the Battle of Okinawa, was beaten to death in a parking lot in Spokane, Wash. late on Aug. 21.

He was waiting in his vehicle for a friend outside a pool hall when police say Adams-Kinard and Demetrius Glenn, also 16, beat him and took his wallet. Police described the incident as a random attack, and Belton died Thursday morning from his injuries.

Both Adams-Kinard and Demetrius Glenn, also 16, are charged with murder and are being tried as adults.
