  • 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.

They were going to the store to buy pop rocks and strawberry nestle quik when they were hunted down by a white man. Hopefully they find this oppressor and bring him to justice. Enough is enough. #Justice4Teens

He survived one of the worst battles in the history of our country only to be brutally murdered by two useless cunts. This is why I hate humanity.

Just made Drudge's page in the top spot. Hopefully this will get some of these cunts in the media to report the fucking story. It would be a shame for the cops to find these fellas threatening , forcing them to put the animals down.

The fact that most of us guessed the race by just reading the title is proof that stop and frisk/being suspicious of those people is very warranted.

Used to be, shit like this would end with their entire family dead and every family they were friends with being driven out of town after their houses were burnt to the ground.

If you can't live in civil society, society would treat you like the savages you were.

The one image looks like he is in a Lowes, hopefully there is a better image of him on from one of the other cameras inside the store.

Serious question, when was the last time a group of white people killed a black person for "fun"? Seriously. I'm drawing a blank on any incident in the past 5 years.

We had this one, the Memphis shooting, and the Oklahoma shooting all within days of each other not to mention random violence and a few deaths after the Zimmerman verdict. When was the last time a group of white people got together and killed a black person for no other reason than they wanted to kill a black person?

Unpossible. 6 ft tall, 150-160 pound kids are no danger to anyone if they're just punching and beating on you with their fists.

Those are harmless... I'm sure they were trying to give the guy who survived WW2 a hug... and their hands slipped or something...

Ok... going to go off on a tangent... I am amazed how certain demo's tend to ignore veterans (from whatever war)... and the sacrifices they have made so they can ook ook eekk eeek etc...

Like in the Netherlands even now... if you say you are Canadian... the love you are given is indescribable... my chick was there for work... taxi driver was being a "you are an American... ergo Fuck you etc"... she mentioned she had married an Canadian... and holy shit his attitude changed...

Also note they still honor our dead at the various grave yards there...

Another gang initiation? Trash like this needs to be punished through a few generations, at least.
