Twitter and blogsites like this one honored and remembered Delbert “Shorty” Belton last week, the 88-year-old WWII veteran who was beaten to death by two black youths who allegedly used long-handled flashlights to smash his face and head as he sat in his car waiting for a friend.
WeaselZippers blog wrote, “One of the reasons he was waiting in the car where he was attacked was to walk a lady into the lodge, so she would be safe. As the people are noting, a gentleman to the end, who would do anything for anybody.”
In Spokane, Twitterer Greg Allmain @FoolishReporter tweeted photos of a vigil held in Delbert Belton’s honor last Friday night at the Eagles Lodge where the 88-year-old WWII Veteran was beaten to death.

A trend police and reporters are seeing more of – a pervert uses a smart phone to reel in a victim. In this case, the victim was a 16-year-old boy vacationing with his family at a popular amusement resort near Orlando, FL. The 43-year-old perv hit up the teen for a chat on an App used by gay men (search “apps commonly used by gay men” and find dozens of them). The boy had convinced his parents to let him go to the park by himself where he rendezvoused with the perv, was taken to perv’s home for sex and nude photos. The boy’s father later discovered the illicit chats and photos on his son’s phone. The perv told police he’s done this so many times, he can’t remember this specific one.
