Arrest made in Spokane beating death of WW2 vet

CNN has it

A juvenile has been arrested by Spokane police in connection with the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran this week, police said Friday.

The male suspect has been charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree murder.

The man — Delbert Belton — was brutally beaten and left for dead by two teens outside a lounge in Spokane, Washington, where he loved to go play pool.

The motive? Police don’t have one. The teens appeared to have picked him at random, authorities say.

A retired aluminum company worker who served in the Pacific, Belton, friends say, took a bullet in the leg during the Battle of Okinawa. He survived that attack.

This attack may or may not be racially motivated. It is a heinous crime that no on deserves, no matter the race of the victim. But the double standard here is that if the races were reversed, CNN would likely be playing that angle up. MSNBS would be holding a Race Baiting marathon, and President Obama would likely be saying that Delbert Benton looked like his Grandfather. I wish no news organization would use ANY crime to further an agenda. But, if they are going to talk about race in violent crime, then dammit be consistent! The fact is, and I will be called a RAAAAACIST for noting this, Black men are 14 times more likely to commit such crimes as White men

The article is a by an African-American professor and mostly it restates the obvious. It’s just that the obvious isn’t much talked about.

So, it’s just fake to pretend that the association of young black men with violence comes out of thin air. Young black men murder 14 times more than young white men. If the kinds of things I just mentioned were regularly done by whites, it’d be trumpeted as justification for being scared to death of them.

It’s not that black communities are in complete denial about these statistics — Stop the Violence events are a staple of high-crime areas. But let’s face it: black America isn’t nearly as indignant about black boys killing one another or whites as about the occasional white cop killing one black boy, even though the former wreaks much more havoc in black communities. There is no coordinated nationwide movement equivalent to the one Martin galvanized. There are no thoughtful films “exploring” black-on-black crime the way Fruitvale Station treats the death of Oscar Grant, a young black man who was killed by transit police in Oakland, Calif.

And recent example illustrates how many blacks feel about who is murdering whom. Two weeks ago, an NYPD cop killed 14-year-old Shaaliver Douse. Douse was in the process of shooting other people, and had been charged with shooting someone else in May — and yet his aunt compared him to Martin. In her mind, the main sin was the white cop’s.

Granted, it seems a lot easier to do something about the Zimmermans than the black thugs. Protest profiling and police departments institute new programs. But black thugs aren’t moved by protests, so it can seem like we’re just stuck with them.

But who’s to say what would happen if black America exerted even half of the emotional fervor and brainpower it does over cases like Martin’s to thinking about how to keep black boys from going wrong? Annette John-Hall had some wise words on this last year. What kind of self-image do we have to assume we can only change others, but not ourselves?

Again, the Left cars nothing about Blacks killing Blacks, they care about their agenda of racial division. To be fair the Left tries to divide Americans across ever possible line, not just race, but the racial division is front and center now.

In another story the media refuses to link to race, even though one of the killers had tweeted hatred for Whites and  about committing violence against Whites, the Left has been playing the blame the gun card while ignoring the gang ties

As an Oklahoma town comes to grips with the apparent senseless killing of an Australian baseball player on their streets, one man is offering a possible motive.

“I don’t think it was for fun. I don’t think it was at random,” James Johnson, whose call to police ended with the apprehension of three teens who are accused of killing Christopher Lane, told Australia-based Fairfax Media.

“I think it was a (gang) initiation,” he said.

When Johnson called police, he didn’t know about the killing of Lane, he told Fairfax Media, which owns the Sydney Morning Herald.

All he knew was that he got a call from his own son, who said the three teens — James Edwards Jr., Chancey Luna and Michael Jones — had threatened him because he refused to join a gang.

Suspect tweeted: ‘time to start taken life’s’

Johnson was working on his truck across the street, and as his son told him about the threat, he says, he saw the three teens arrive in front of the house in the town of Duncan.

He called police and told them about the threat and the boys at his house.

Police arrested the three and named them suspects in the killing of Lane, which had happened hours earlier.

Edwards’ sister said Thursday that he did hang around some older men who were thought to be in a gang, but she said she didn’t know about her brother actually being in a gang.

Again, the Left wants to focus on race, race, race rather than talking about the growing menace of gangs. Why? Because they care only about one thing, their agenda!

I will note that CNN is reporting all of these stories, so they deserve credit for at least reporting them even though they might report differently if the victims were a different color.

Emotionalism- the folly of Liberals

Liberals, including Liberal members of the media, often jump onto a story, or spin a story a certain way because, they WANT it to be true. One such example, can be seen in an Australian news story about a Gay couple who adopted a child. A story that painted the rosiest of pictures. A picture of two devoted dads, and a very luck infant. a story that the reporter who did it likely WANTED to be true, but, as  Stacy McCain writes, was just a lie. A story not of love, or devotion, or family. But a story of evil, and sadistic child abuse

In July 2010, two men — their names given only as Mark and Peter — were the subjects of an Australian Broadcasting Company feature story with this headline:

Why two dads are better than one
Becoming parents was hard work for gay couple …
but they’d do it all over again if they had to

The article by Ginger Gorman positively oozed with sympathetic admiration for Mark and Peter, whose son was conceived in 2005 with the assistance of a Russian surrogate mother.

The Left wants so badly to equate Gay marriage with traditional marriage, and part of that is equating two Gay, or lesbian parents with traditional parents. The ugly fact is that some people, be they straight or gay are evil. Such people should never be parents obviously. The story continues

He was only two weeks old the first time Newton, now 42, molested the boy that the Russian surrogate was paid $8,000 to bear for him and Truong, now 36. The Sydney Morning Herald reports:

Police believe the pair had adopted the boy ‘‘for the sole purpose of exploitation’’. The abuse began just days after his birth and over six years the couple travelled the world, offering him up for sex with at least eight men, recording the abuse and uploading the footage to an international syndicate known as the Boy Lovers Network. …
[U.S. District] Judge [Sarah Evans] Barker said the pair brainwashed the child to believe the sexual abuse was normal. Newton was also said to have trained the boy to deny any inappropriate behaviour if he was ever questioned by authorities.

An international syndicate of child molesters — this was the market for which Mark Newton and Peter Truong hired a surrogate to help them create a highly valuable commodity. That’s why they did that “hard work” referenced in the glowing 2010 feature — which the Australian Broadcasting Company has now deleted from its Web site, in a shameful attempt to hide their shameful misdeed in celebrating this shameful couple as an example of “Why two dads are better than one.”

But of course, they’re liberals. They have no shame — only an agenda.

Ah yes, everything the Left does revolves around their agenda. Part of that agenda is that “everyone and everything is equal”, or at least equal as the Left defines it. And no, I do not think all gay people are evil, I do not think that most are evil, I do not think the vast majority are either. The vast majority of all people, Straight, Gay, whatever, are horrified of such abuse of a child because what these two monsters did was evil. Again, some people are evil, and if we are to truly teat everyone equally, then their sexual orientation is not of importance is it? Unless, of course, you have an agenda………….

As I said in the post some people are evil and should never be parents

Our friends at HyperVocal made a convenient list of why these parents should rot in prison and/or hell. The two are being charged with, among many other things:

• Providing alcohol to all four children (legally drunk 9-year-old!)
• Physically abusing the kids (one was thrown into a wall)
• Having firearms within reach (right there on the floor)
• Threatening to kill the youngest child
• Taking pics of one kid with an “adult toy” in his pants
• Keeping one from going to school … ever
• Locking one of the children in a room with a bucket
• Having child porn on the computer
• Making one kid take care of the family’s FIFTY SNAKES
• Living in a filthy home with lizards, pigs and other animals
