They Smashed His Face With Flashlights – One Attacker Captured – Delbert “Shorty” Belton Murder *Update

SPOKANE, Wash. (CBS Seattle/AP) — Police in Spokane, Wash., say they have arrested one of two teens suspected of fatally beating an 88-year-old veteran of World War II who had survived the Battle of Okinawa.

Authorities say the two young African American men, between 16 and 19 years old, approached Delbert Belton in his car at random Wednesday night outside an Eagles Lodge as he was waiting for a friend.

Belton was found by police with serious head injuries and died in the hospital Thursday.

Belton’s daughter-in-law tells KREM-TV that the suspects beat him with flashlights.

“They used those great big heavy flashlights,” Bobbie Belton said. “The doctors said he was bleeding from all parts of his face.”

Spokane Police say they have surveillance images of the attackers — at least one of them has been taken into police custody.

Homicide-Suspect-1

The Spokesman-Review reports Belton was born and raised in Spokane before he joined the Army. Friends say he was shot in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa, where thousands of American soldiers died.

“He was an Army veteran,” Glenn Longsdorff, Belton’s roommate of four years, told KREM. “In fact, he was shot when he was 18-years-old on the beaches of Okinawa. He’ll do anything in the world for anybody.”

After the war, he spent 33 years working for Kaiser Aluminum, before retiring in 1982. (continue reading)

  1. Thank you Sundance for the update.
    A truly “Great Generation” (not a cliché) man, terminated in a cruel way by two young monsters.
    It is hard not to nourish the most ill of feelings following this undeserved, heart-breaking death.
    Let’s try to at least, each of us, do something nice for a veteran, in the memory of the victim, little as that may mean.

    with extra long handles) inverted as a baton & used as a weapon. if caught by LE with flashlight on them is not illegal like a knife or gun .

              The question is, what are we going to do about all of this? I believe the time is coming when “folks” (as Obama is so fond of calling the U.S. Citizens) are going to be completely fed up. I feel that time is nigh – how could it not be?

              The more we keep getting the word out, spreading the truth to fight back against the agenda of the machine, the closer we are to a resolution/revolution of some kind. And that’s what it’s going to take to turn this country around. Not necessarily a war, but a revolution. People are tired of living in fear, of sending our children forth in fear, of having what we’ve worked hard for taken or stolen by those who would give it away or steal it from us. We are tired of the majority of senseless violent crimes being committed by what is supposed to be a small minority.

              I am in the process of starting a blog about Crime in Houston and have begun gathering data and research. In that pursuit, I have been following all off the crime headlines in the Greater Houston area and this I can tell you – almost every single car-jacking, home invasion, armed robbery, high speed chase, shooting, etc. is being committed by young black men. There are the occasional white and Hispanic offender, but 95% of the time, they are black and young. Additionally, they are NEVER alone – always in gang, and normally there are 3 or 4 suspects for each offense. It is unbelievable. For instance – there was a new article in Houston yesterday. Dollar Generals around Houston have been robbed by armed, black youth (2-4 participating each robbery) over 40 times in the last 2 months. They have shot people and they have been shot but the police after getting into high speed chases. Nowhere is safe anymore. Don’t dare go into a cell phone store to pay your bill or buy a new phone. Don’t go to a strip center that has one of the phone stores or cash checking store or pawn shop – you’re just asking to be robbed and/or carjacked and shot. Hell, their newest thing around Houston, now, is to hit restaurants close to closing and rob the people inside at gunpoint. It’s terrifying.

                It’s escalating in the big cities to uncontrollable proportions. Obama has showed his hand by not protecting our border so if he won’t do that, why would we think he would protect anything inside the border? He and his agents from hell are all about chaos. He promotes the culture if death by advocating abortion and morning after pill (for children) and Obamacare, both of which will prove to be eugenics programs. He’s got a string if mysterious deaths that surround him, he drones innocent and untried victims; he is systematically dismantling our country and we’re on the verge of a national death knell. Further, both houses are complicit. He is sending subliminal messages to these black youths to conduct themselves like animals through the help if the media and an attorney general who will not prosecute “his own people.” How do you expect to end this charade of barbarism in a peaceful manner? Obama is provoking a backlash that has no other way to meet his challenge without violence. That’s what the FEMA camps are for and the inordinate amount of bullets, artillery and tanks are for. The evil elitist s have built some very nice underground barracks for themselves though. We should suck out all the oxygen and cement them in. They are in league with satan and I’m not kidding.

        The killing of the Australian probably wouldn’t have gone past Duncan if the press in Oz weren’t so utterly outraged that one of their own was killed here. It was their initial fury that gave the story legs. We have a number of Australian readers on our blog and they’ve emailed us about it. There’s talk of not permitting their kids to visit here because the feeling is there is no safe place in the U.S.. I had to agree with them.

        This is Obama’s doing; he built the meme & handed it off to his MSM toadies. He desperately needs crises to deflect us from examining his incompetent programs and dangerous foreign policies. But he couldn’t have accomplished this w/o the help of our MSM, academia, and Sovietized police departments.
        ——————————————–
        After reading the story of the Memphis nurse here, I visited a Memphis online news outlet to get a feel for the place. It’s a cultural sinkhole. In the ten minutes there, I found:
        * One man doused with gas & set on fire (they’d probably run out of feral cats to torture) in the back yard of an old house: Burns over 60% of his body;
        * 3 y.o. boy found wandering in Target parking lot – 3rd time in a month so they finally removed him from his momma’s Section 8 apartment. There goes *her* housing;
        * an attempted robbery of a man who went out to empty his trash came up lemons. Turns out he had nothing to take except the trash can since he’d just run down to the dumpsters w/o his wallet or cellphone.
        * a man stumbled into a church graveyard and died of – I forget- bullet wounds or stabbing;

        The local news in any medium-sized city with an established Dem political machine and a substantial black underclass will be full of the same stories only now they’re getting worse as the economy sinks.. In BHO’s second auto-biography he admits these are failed policies but he doesn’t have any answers. His own “community organizing” was a bust because there’s no community to build on.

        Obama wasn’t the architect of this horror (LBJ was) but he sure did plan to cash in on it. And now I think he and his MSM buddies are pushing this “young black criminal” meme in order to scare average white AND black folk into cracking down on gun rights. Like so many of his other half-baked ideas, it’s going to backfire. Big time.

    They never made a TV series about the War in the Pacific. No “Combat’ or “12 O’clock High”. McHale’s Navy was about as close as TV wanted to get the island fighting. Okinawa was the culmination of those island campaigns, writ large. It was Iwo Jima all over again but bigger. More planes, more ships, more Marines and Army soldiers too. Kamikaze’s in the sky made the Navy’s job a nightmare too. One of the most disturbing pieces of film shot in WW2 was that of young child just sitting alone trembling with fear. It was often used to show the horror of the atomic bombings but, in fact, it was an Okinawan child caught up in the carnage of that last great battle of WW2.

    Lee Marvin ( an Iwo veteran) made famous the bitter epitaph of the men who fought in those battles when he declared such men would arrive in Heaven with the word’s “Another Marine reporting for duty, I’ve served my time in Hell” and yet, Delbert Belton would arrive having to say his hell came as a helpless old man when he was beaten to death outside his veterans lodge by two parasites his own nation spawned.

      To refresh our memories, of the J’accuse – review of the Dreyfus affair, and George Zimmerman – and his attempted lynching by the Media, the NAACP, Jessie, Al Sharpton, and the BGI.
      +++++
      The Dreyfus affair (French: l’affaire Dreyfus, was a political scandal that divided France from its inception in 1894 until its resolution in 1906. It involved the conviction for treason in November 1894 of Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young French artillery officer of Alsatian Jewish descent. Sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly having communicated French military secrets to the German Embassy in Paris, Dreyfus was sent to the penal colony at Devil’s Island in French Guiana, where he spent almost five years.

      Two years later, in 1896, evidence came to light identifying a French Army major named Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy as the real culprit. After high-ranking military officials suppressed the new evidence, a military court unanimously acquitted Esterhazy after the second day of his trial. The Army accused Dreyfus of additional charges based on false documents. Word of the military court’s framing of Dreyfus and of an attendant cover-up began to spread, chiefly owing to J’accuse, a vehement open letter published in a Paris newspaper in January 1898 by the notable writer Émile Zola. Activists put pressure on the government to reopen the case.
