The 88-year-old World War II veteran who was randomly beaten to death Wednesday likely died because he tried to fend off his attackers. Two teenage boys are charged in the bloody beating of Delbert Belton outside a Spokane, Washington ice skating rink and investigators are now suggesting the soldier—who took a bullet in the Battle of Okinawa—tried to stop the apparent robbery. Police say that enraged the teens and turned their petty theft into full-blown murder as they continued to beat him into submission with ‘big, heavy flashlights.’ ‘Our information is that the individual fought back and that may have made this, you

The message here, obviously, is to always just cave in and let the barbarians take control of your lives. Me? I´ve got a gun and if I have my way, there´ll just be another guy who will never walk again and who won´t be able to handle anything more complicated than a spoon.

Is this what the world has become? If you´re being attacked you shouldn´t "fight back"? Especially if you, the victim and caucasian are being attacked by a black person(s)? Didn´t George Zimmerman fight back and become the evil person? Haven´t others fought back only to be labelled "racist"? Is it that whites just have to allow blacks to beat and murder us without defending our lives and property? It´s like the old argument about rape - "she was a good-looking female and had it coming to her." So what are they going to do about this beating death - say the youths were just defending themselves against a "crazy ass old cracka"? God help us all.

In Seattle I believe the killers are correct as to the law. Victims of crime are not legally allowed to defend themselves, and if they call the police it is they who will be arrested. I once saw a panhandling (white) druggie in Seattle berate a restaurant owner trying to chase him off, telling the store owner that the law was n his side.

Don´t insult the animals. Animals do not attack and kill others for no reason like people do. People can be the most evil, vile creatures if they have no moral compass.

Sickening monsters. Stupid to say that he died because he tried to defend himself. Hello?!?! That is the most BASIC human RIGHT is to defend oneself!!

The Brits are so sad, total cowards, afraid of defending themselves against these savages, and by law pretty much illegal to defend yourself with "too much force."
Too bad he didn´t have a .45 pistol. Heard from an older friend lamenting his lost athletic prowess, "Can´t run, can´t fight, I´ll just have to shoot them."

Justice for Shorty Belton!

Fighting back be damned! He went out like a man, which likely won´t be said when these simpering, tearful yutes stand in court, tears streaming down their faces. Not out of sorrow nor regret for their actions, but for themselves for getting caught, and now being "victimized" by the system!

Justice for Shorty Belton! I won´t be happy untill I see them ushered out in orange jumpsuits and handcuffs, as it dawns on their "angelic" faces what "life in prison without parole" means, and the tears really start.

Interesting how the Daily Mail has shut down further comments to their article.
It seems that all the commenters were of the opinion that these perps were animals, deserving summary execution.
No doubt DM was hoping for some bleeding heart liberal comments about these poor, deprived youths, who were forced to be violent because the victim dissed them by trying to defend himself.

Black communities are accursed for condoning hatred of non-blacks from their "civil rights" leaders who infect their youth with contempt for other races. They wonder why they have no respect from other races and think others are racist for treating them as though they are all potentially violent criminals.

In actual fact, people are blacklisting the black community not for their ethnicity but for their despicable disregard for the rule of law when they turn a blind eye on the evil that lives within the hearts of many black teens, egged on by the poisonous contents of rap lyrics and the lack of competent parenting. And if that makes me a racist for pointing out how liberalism has lost an entire generation of blacks, so be it.

This is just a new diversion, that obviously people are already falling for. This story has gotten too big for the Obama, Sharpton, mainstream media race baiters, so they need to change the narrative: it goes from being an obvious black racist attack against a helpless white defenseless old man, to just an unfortunate robbery that went horribly wrong because the victim escalated the situation. It´s bad enough when the low information voters fall for it, but it´s even worse when I see the more informed taking the bait also. Wake up.

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance.

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered.

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related.
