    89 Year Old WWII Veteran Beaten and Left for Dead Dies

    WWII vet, beaten by teens outside Eagles Lodge, dies | Spokane/E. WA - KXLY.com

    From what I've read this was totally arbitrary. A defenseless 89 year old WWII Veteran was attacked and left for dead by two POS sub-human animals. Delbert Belton survived being wounded in the Battle of Okinawa to die like this.

    THIS is what conceal carry is for, to exterminate POS scum like these two thugs.

    WWII Vet, 88, brutally beaten in Spokane, Wash.[W:71]

    An 88-year-old wounded veteran of World War II died Thursday after he was brutally beaten, apparently at random, in the parking lot of his lodge in Spokane, Wash., authorities said.
    Spokane police said they were seeking two suspects in the attack Wednesday night on Delbert "Shorty" Belton, a retired aluminum company worker who'd lived in the city for most of his life after he was discharged from the Army after the war. Belton died of his injuries Thursday morning, police said.

    You know, so many bad things happen, every day, that make me shake my head, and worry about the state of the world. But I have become desensitized to a lot, because it's just so common now, to hear bad news. This story, though - broke my heart. This guy survived World War II, only to be beaten to death in the parking lot, while waiting to escort a friend so she wouldn't have to walk alone.

    Poor ol guy. I'm just kind of at loss for words at such senseless violence. Part of me wants to blame and another wants to understand why anyone would do this.

    Apparently he was attacked by 2 thugs for no good reason. There is camera surveillance showing the 2 in the link you posted.

    they are believed to be the two ... may not be ... but if they are, I hope the guards at the prison tell the veterans in the prison what they did ... I'm amazed by how much cowardice there is out there ...

    Hopefully justice is served to the people who did this.

    This story is tragic and sickening.

    The more and more this crap happens the more inclined I am in favor of implementing the Soviet Method on reprehensible filth such as this.

    I 100% agree with you that it is tracking and totally sickening.

    And we know very little about crime in the USSR, but what we do know is that there was a lot of police/secret police on the streets. Since the USSR has gone the way of the dinosaur, crime in Russia is even worse than in the USA.

    I think it is more a societal issue, the whole violence/drugs/gangs/poverty/hopelessness problem. Also the lack of social and police control will have aggravated this problem.

    This is more than just a little shocking, this story is headline news even across the pond:

    Amerikaanse oorlogsheld (88) doodgeschopt door tieners
    translation: American war hero (88) kicked to death by teens

    Delbert 'Shorty' Belton, een Amerikaanse oorlogsveteraan die de bloedige slag bij Okinawa in Japan tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog overleefde, is op een gruwelijke manier aan zijn eind gekomen: bruut doodgeschopt door twee tieners.

    Belton werd woensdag op de parkeerplaats van Eagles Lodge in Spokane in de staat Washington gevonden. Hij kwam daar twee tot drie keer per week om te biljarten. Gisteren overleed Belton in het ziekenhuis aan de gevolgen van zwaar hoofdletsel.

    De politie tast in het duister naar de motieven voor de dodelijke schoppartij. 'Het lijkt een willekeurige aanval te zijn', zegt een woordvoerder van de politie tegen CNN. 'Er is geen reden om aan te nemen dat hij zijn overvallers kende.'
    translation: Delbert 'Shorty' Belton, an American war hero who survived the bloody battle of Okinawa in Japan during the second word war, has seen his life cut short in a most gruesome way: brutally kicked to death by two teens.

    Belton was found Wednesday on the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge in Spokane, in the state of Washington. He visited the lodge 2 or 3 times a week to play pool. Yesterday Belton passed away in the hospital because of serious head wounds.

    The police has no idea what the motives are for the deadly kicking death. "It looks like a random attack", according to statements to CNN made by a spokesperson of the police. "There is no indication that the victim knew his attackers".

    Oorlogsheld (88) doodgeslagen door tieners

    In de Tweede Wereldoorlog werd Delbert Belton op een Japans eiland in zijn been geschoten, maar hij wist de Slag bij Okinawa te overleven. Nu is de 88-jarige Amerikaanse veteraan toch gedood. Doodgeschopt door twee tieners voor het café waar hij graag ging biljarten.

    Belton werd woensdag op de parkeerplaats van Eagles Lodge in Spokane gevonden. Hij had zware verwondingen aan zijn hoofd. Gisteren overleed de oorlogsheld in het ziekenhuis.
    translation: War hero (88) beaten to death by teens.

    In the second world war, Delbert Belton was shot in the leg on a Japanese island, but he was able to survive the Battle of Okinawa. Now the 88 year old American veteran has been killed. Kicked to death by two teens in front of the bar where he loved to play pool.

    Belton was found on the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge in Spokane. He had suffered serious injuries to his head. Yesterday the war hero passed away in the hospital.

    De politie heeft geen motief voor de knokpartij. "Het lijkt een willekeurige aanval te zijn", zegt een woordvoerder van de politie in Spokane, een stad in het noordwesten van de Verenigde Staten, tegen CNN.

    Vorige week werd in de Amerikaanse staat Oklahoma een 23-jarige Australische honkballer doodgeschoten door tieners. Als motief droegen zij aan 'dat ze zich verveelden en niks te doen hadden'.
    translation: The police does not know the motive for the beating. "It seems a random attack", according to a spokesperson of the police in Spokane, a town in the north west of the United States, to CNN.

    Last week, in the American state Oklahoma, a 23 year year old Australian baseball player was shot to death by teens. When asked about their motive for the crime, they stated that "they were bored and had nothing to do".
