The Right Scoop
August 22, 2013

I don’t get it. What the hell is wrong with people that they would attack the most vulnerable among us? Delbert Belton was 89 years-old, waiting in the parking lot of his lodge at 8PM and these 2 black teens approached him and beat him to death. They are thugs and they are cowards!

Now I’m not saying the attack was race-based because we don’t know, but clearly we’ve seen a lot of crimes like this lately. But when you think about it, what motivates teens to attack and beat to death an 89 year-old man? You can rob someone without beating them to death. You can steal someone’s car without beating them to death. And none of that was reported to have even happened. If race or gang activity isn’t the motive, of if the teens weren’t hopped up on meth or something, I honestly don’t know what else it could be.

And to top it all off he was a WWII veteran who even took a bullet for his country in the Battle of Okinawa. And this is how it ends for him. What the hell is going on in our country?

Zitat
KXLY-TV – 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. …

Police investigating the deadly attack on Belton are also working to obtain surveillance footage from the scene.

Me too. It makes me even more physically ill that there is not one peep of HATE CRIME! coming out of anyone. This right on the heels of the shooting and killing of Christopher Lane just for the fun of it and again silence - is deafening.

If you look at every level of our 'society', you see evil everywhere. It definitely makes me think of Frank Peretti's book, This Present Darkness. It's a fictional story about an America influenced by demonic spirits, from the individual to the nation. If you ever read C.S. Lewis' book, The Screwtape Letters, the two books are written from perspective of demons (differently but similar as to objectives and goals). Both worthwhile reading; to me, it explains what we are witnessing.

Well this series of events reveals the fallacy in thinking that some murders are hate crimes and others are not. When first degree murder happens, it's a hate filled event. Give me a break. And why do we place some members of society as privileged, so that murdering one of them is worse? I don't buy that. Everyone who has the gift of life is valuable and their life should be protected to the full extent of the law, not just certain classed.

If the law only flows one way then it isn't just.
