Assault Flashlights To Blame...Not The Killers Wielding Them

Police in Spokane, Wash., say they have arrested one of two teens suspected of fatally beating an 88-year-old veteran of World War II who had survived the Battle of Okinawa.
Authorities say the two young African American men, between 16 and 19 years old, approached Delbert Belton in his car Wednesday night outside an Eagles Lodge as he was waiting for a friend.
Belton was found by police with serious head injuries and died in the hospital Thursday.
Belton’s daughter-in-law tells KREM-TV that the suspects beat him with flashlights.
The article indicates it was the big heavy flashlights -- you know, the ones made of metal with high capacity battery holders.

I am not happy with the ferocious racism showing up in the comments on that article, but with the enormous energy that the left has spent on promoting racial hatred the last few years, I guess that I am not surprised.

I fear for my country.

UPDATE: One of the suspects has been arrested.  From the August 23, 2013 Los Angeles Times:
The teenager has a lengthy criminal history, including a 2012 conviction for fourth-degree assault, obstructing a police officer and misdemeanor rioting, according to juvenile court officials. 
Misdemeanor rioting?  What's that?  Is it like misdemeanor murder or felony overtime parking?

Could it be that the "Hyphenated" president and his minions are trying to start a Helter Skelter race war? It sure increasingly looks like that is the case!

Stir up passions on both sides and sit back and enjoy the carnage I suppose. When the dust settles and the fires go out then the progressive "paradise" can be built. Talk about being both evil and crazy!
