    Murder suspect claims 88-year-old victim shorted him in drug deal [W:27]

    The beating death of a decorated World War II veteran took a bizarre twist Tuesday.
    Prosecutors said one of the two suspects has suggested that the victim, 88-year-old Delbert Belton, was selling crack cocaine outside the Eagles Lodge and shorted them.
    Although prosecutors didn’t elaborate in court, Spokane police later said they’ve found nothing to support suspected killer Kenan Adams-Kinard’s drug dealing claims. Adams-Kinard, 16, is being held in lieu of $3 million bond on charges of first-degree robbery and first-degree murder in connection with last week’s confrontation.
    The victim’s family reacted to the teen’s claims by describing them as ridiculous.
    Meanwhile, Adams-Kinard’s father, Steven Kinard, stands by his son’s claim, saying Belton was well known in the cocaine dealing community. He’s far from the World War II hero he’s been portrayed as, he said.
    “He poisoned the country and poisoned our kids,” Steven Kinard said.
    Kinard admits he has a history of cocaine addiction, and says he recognized Belton from his own experience and use. Kinard was sentenced to five years in prison in 2005 for two cocaine dealing convictions.
    “I think everybody needs to look on the other side of the picture,” he said.
    I know there was already a link about this tragedy but it has derailed off into neverland. But I believe this has to be the most pathetic piece of BS that it deserves its own thread.

    Please let there be a trial and the defendants use that defense. The prosecutor will rip them apart. Bring on the trial.

    Agreed. That is really disgusting. I don't believe it for a minute.

    Yeah, I'll believe that when the coroner issues a tox report proving it. This is pathetic "the victim made me do it" crap.

    It's probably just as illegal to kill a drug customer as it is to murder anybody else. So, I don't think this will work as a defense. Some lawyer might make his career getting the guy off and then suing the estate for the balance owed. But, I'll guess that won't happen.

    That is pretty impossible to believe. Is the defense really that stupid?? What could possibly make them think that this would work? Is it just an effort to get some press for himself?

    If that's true, why is it so impossible?

    Kinard is the kid's father, not the old man.

    Yeah well some people believe Trayvon Martin was just some innocent little boy who'd never hurt a fly too. Thugs are what they are...scum of the earth and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

    I am shocked Jessee and Al are not rushing to this misguided almost obamas-son child's legal and PR defense? Why not?
