Arrest Made in Murder of Delbert Belton, WWII Vet Who Was Beaten to Death; Race baiters predictably quiet


One in custody, one to go.

Background for those not familiar with the disgusting story:

An 88-year-old veteran of World War II was beaten to death outside the Eagles Lodge in Spokane, police say, and authorities are seeking two young males in the incident.

Friends identified the victim as Delbert Belton, and say he was sitting outside the lodge when he was attacked. No motive was offered.
Police say they received a call about an assault at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday and responded to find the victim sitting in his car with serious head injuries. The victim was taken to a hospital, and died Thursday morning.

Authorities are looking for two African American males of average build between the ages of 16 and 19 caught on video.

One of the attackers has been arrested, meaning the other probably won’t be far behind.

So when is Jamie Foxx going to wear an “I am Delbert” shirt at an awards show?

Obama is expected to issue a racially-charged statement expressing outrage at the murders of both Belton and Chris Lane… never.
