Teens face murder charge in beating death of Delbert Belton (Photo of fugitive)

National outcry follows beating death of WWII veteran


Kenan D. Adams-Kinard

The nation’s eyes have turned to Spokane and the two teenagers accused of murdering an 88-year-old World War II veteran.

Police say two 16-year-olds beat Delbert “Shorty” Belton to death Wednesday night after robbing him. One suspect, Demetrius Glenn, turned himself in and was arrested late Thursday night. The other, Kenan D. Adams-Kinard, remained at large Friday night.

“We hope Mr. Kinard or his family will do the right thing and surrender quickly without incident, and we can resolve this and bring closure to the family of the individual who lost his life,” police Chief Frank Straub said.

Both boys have a history of violent crime: Glenn has a conviction of fourth-degree assault, riot and eluding police capture, as well as two pending charges of malicious mischief and driving without a license. On June 26, Adams-Kinard was convicted of third-degree theft and fourth-degree assault.

Security officers with Spokane Public Schools helped identify the suspects. Adams-Kinard was a student at Lewis and Clark High School. Demetrius Glenn went to North Central and Bancroft but dropped out in February.

Both face charges of first-degree murder and first-degree robbery and will be tried as adults. Glenn is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday afternoon.

And the media remains deaf, dumb, and blind. How wonderful is that?

Yep, I wonder if he’d say the same thing if the races were reversed...No, I guess I don’t wonder.

These thugs need serious jail time. Armed robbery and manslaughter, perhaps second-degree murder, and you can bet this isn’t their first time being arrested.

Wow. What a shameful incident. For one of our remaining WW2 vets to lose his life in such a way, killed by a couple punks, for fun.

... the chief of Police said this murder had absolutely nothing to do with race ....

The FBI interviewed every person Zimmerman knew his whole life - left no stone unturned - to assure the world it wasn't a hate crime.

I'm sure the FBI is doing the same in this case...

LOL - kidding the FBI is as corrupt on this issue as a 1930's Al Capone gang... the FBI reek of bias... I'll bet the two bit jerks haven't started their 'investigation' into the IRS abuse of Tea Party groups either. And they damn sure aren't going to check out this murder as a possible hate crime.. Eff 'em.

Indeed. As someone who is not a fan of George Zimmerman, I can say that these perps and the killers of that Australian ball player are far worse than Zimmerman is.

He be one mad boy and a prime reason to expand the death penalty and streamline the carrying out of a death sentence.

The poor, 89-year-old gets wounded on Okinawa fighting the Japanese, then comes home for his reward at the hands of an evil murderous thug!

Is this what he fought for?

Amen to that!

“Shorty” Belton was a Patriot who fought and sacrificed for our nation and a person who worked hard through life.

May he RIP.

They are almost as fast with these excuses for black-against-white assaults as the FBI is with their 'no sign of terrorism' when Islamists commit crimes of violence.

Is that what is written in the police training manuals regarding such incidents?

==

Police Chief: Delbert Belton beating not racially motivated

==

A similar excuse was used for the 3 black kids who beat up the 13 year old white kid on a school bus recently.

By “serious jail time” do you mean working or sitting around in air conditioned stir learning from the older criminals?

It has everything to do with race. We are living in a Clockwork Orange world, where these kids have no reason to live, nothing to look forward to, little or no parental guidance, absent fathers, and are existential creations of our cruel welfare system, who can and do kill just for fun or for the hell of it. You can credit the Great Society for these aberrations of humanity. It will get worse. It reminds me of Camus book “The Stranger”, from 1942, where a man kills another man without any empathy or concern whatsoever because if life is meaningless, so are ethics, morality, right/wrong, etc. Life imitates art.

You’re being optimistic.

Within the black community, and to a growing extent within the Hispanic one, there are a couple generations that have been active taught race envy, suspicion, fearfulness and hatred.

Yes, he was the keynote speaker. He followed up MLK III's speech and continued the theme that skin color is a license to murder.

Like the 13 year-old white boy who was viciously beaten on that school bus by three black “teens”; the 12 year-old white boy who was kidnaped, tortured, and burned to death with blow-torch by a black “neighbor”, or the 13 month-old white baby that was shot in the face at point black range by another black “teen”, the Duke Lacrosse/Trayvon Martin MSM, Jesse ‘I spit in White Peoples Food’ Jackson, Al ‘Tawana Brawley’ Sharpton, Eric ‘My people’ Holder, and Barack ‘If I had a son’ Obama could care less about the life and death an old white veteran.

The Liberal mass media has portrayed White males (the founders, inventors and defenders of modern Western Civilization), as weak, dumb, bumbling idiots, stupid buffoons, territorial thieves, and evil ugly racist (with a whip in one hand and a Mint Julep in the other) in the movies, TV sitcoms and commercials, for decades. While at the same time doing everything in their power to sanitize and glorify black males beyond recognition, while teaching them in the Public School system and mass media that white males are the single most important cause of all their troubles, past, present, and future. What do you expect?! Ya think that maybe a life time of constant anti-white propaganda like that might have had some negative effect on how they view white males, and contributed to their cold blooded and vicious murder of this helpless and harmless old white man?

This is the behavior of a Single Parent Sub-Culture raised on anti-white animosity and envy. Triggered by their racist hatred and a righteous indignation instilled and encouraged by a Leftist Hollywood and Public School Victimist Propaganda. Empowered by Liberals and their Entitlement Mentality. Often Ignored and Protected by the National News Media, Political Correctness and a corrupt DOJ. Forgiven by an endless list of Affirmative Excuses and Lowered Expectations. Glorified beyond recognition by a fawning media on TV, on the Movie screen, and Gansta Rap.

Resulting in the chaotic new social dis-order, void of personal safety, common decency, and civilized behavior that Liberalism have forced upon us, and until America wakes up out of its blind obedience to Political Correctness and recognizes this behavior for what it is, ‘black racism/anti-white hatred’, and admit that it is a serious problem, violent crimes like these will only get worse.
