    These POS beat a WW II vet who survived the Battle of Okinawa and worked 30 years. This one man has done more for this country than these 2 POS and that punk kid in Florida ever will.

    Where is the idiot sharpton when a productive white member of society is beaten to death?

    Will barry say that the "two young African American men, between 16 and 19 years old" could be his son? As he did with that punk in Florida.


    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.

    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.
    The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office says Belton died of blunt facial and head injuries.
    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

    This is horrible, but I am surprised it wasn't the police who killed him to be perfectly honest. Between racist thug punks and the gestapo, we've got one hell of a fight on our hands. It's cases like this I wish we would bring back public crucification as a punishment. That's really old school, but I bet the deterrent factor alone would work.

    No, not hung. (that would have racial overtones that would cloud the message) let them be beaten to death. A little "give onto others as you would have them give unto you". You stab someone, you should be stabbed. rape someone to death? I could build a machine that would do the same thing to the rapist. kill someone by spray and pray drive by's? how about a rain of bullets, starting at the feet, and raising a few inches at a time, reloading as needed, until a final between the eyes?

    An eye for an eye.......

    If there was a vote mine would go for the old reliable draw and quarter on this matter and for all child rapists and killers.

    If time were an issue this would be OK: at least some occasions horses were hitched to each of the victim's limbs and spurred in four directions.
    First the prisoner was drawn to the place of execution on a hurdle, a type of sledge. (Originally he was merely dragged behind a horse.) Then he was hanged. Cut down while still alive, he was disembowelled and his entrails burned before his eyes. (Some references, such as the Encyclopedia Britannica, say this step, and not dragging behind a horse, is what is meant by "drawn," but actual sentences of execution don't support this view.) Finally the condemned was beheaded and his body cut into quarters, one arm or leg to a quarter. How exactly the quartering was to be accomplished wasn't always specified, but on at least some occasions horses were hitched to each of the victim's limbs and spurred in four directions. An assistant with a sword or cleaver was sometimes assigned to make a starter cut and ease the strain on the animals. The remains were often put on display as a warning to others.

    That's what was done to William Wallace. May every British royal dynasty die horrible, painful deaths for it, too.

    Indeed..But as much as Mill Gibson made a great movie.
    The Brits made motorcycles that leaked oil, cars that were rust buckets and leaked oil but in this era a few sessions of drawn and quartering may serve us well.

    You guys are way too brutish for my tastes. I prefer to let them live but give them a lobotomy using an oxy/acetylene torch placed in the middle of their forehead.

    Young Deputy Sheriff Guns Down Air Force Vet in His Own Garage

    Kit Daniels
    August 26, 2013

    Funeral arrangements are underway for a 68-year-old Air Force veteran who was gunned down in his own garage by a young Blount County, Tenn. deputy sheriff.
    Henry C. Taylor was inspecting his garage late at night after it had been robbed multiple times in the past week, according to WATE.

    Outside, Deputy Ernest Ragland, 22, peeked through the window and spotted Taylor with his handgun.
    That’s when Ragland yelled at Taylor before shooting him multiple times, instantly killing the homeowner and veteran.
    Ragland had been outside inspecting the property after Taylor’s wife reported the most recent break-in to police three hours earlier.
    Kayla Croy, who rented a mobile home from Taylor for six years, heard the shooting.
    “I started hearing some arguing before the shots,” Croy said to WATE. “Then when the shots actually happened it was like boom, boom, boom, boom.”
    After the shooting, police arriving at the scene told another neighbor who was out walking his dog to “get back inside” his house.
    One of the commenters on the WATE article, Kim Crisp, said she knew Taylor personally.
    “He was a very gentle spirit and wouldn’t ever raise his voice at all,” Crisp said. “He wouldn’t hurt anyone.”
    “His is such a major tragedy now that the ones we are supposed to trust for our safety are no longer trustworthy.”
    Taylor’s obituary states that in addition to serving with the Air Force for 20 years, Taylor “worked as a mail handler for the U.S. Postal Service for 22 years, was an amateur radio operator and retired as a captain with the Tennessee State Guard.”
    The sheriff’s office has placed Ragland, who has been with the department for only eight months, on paid administrative leave.
    This story is eerily similar to the Ft. Worth police shooting we reported on this past May in which two police officers shot a 72-year-old man six times on his own property.
    A police affidavit later said that the officers “went to the wrong house because of poor lighting.”
    In a released statement, Waller’s family said that they were “deeply troubled by the Ft. Worth police department misrepresenting details of the incident” in press releases and demanded an independent investigation.
    As the Google Maps street view reveals, the house addresses on Waller’s street are marked on both the curbs (stenciled in black and white) and on the mailboxes.
    Unlike the police officers involved in the Ft. Worth shooting, Deputy Ragland did go to the right house, but once again an innocent homeowner has been killed.
