Spokane Police Chief Says Murdered WWII Vet ‘Made Stituation Worse’ by Fighting Back

It’s scary to think this assclown has a badge.

From Breitbart.

Spokane police have indicated that (88 year old Delbert) Belton enraged the teens when he tried to fend them off, which prompted them to beat him with “big, heavy flashlights” to the point where Belton was bleeding from every part of his head.

“Our information is that the individual fought back and that may have made this, you know, a worse situation,” Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub said on Monday.

He really thinks Delbert Belton brought death on himself because he fought for his life against the animals who attacked him.

Rape victims who fight their attackers ( just lay there and take it) and home owners who fight back against intruders ( just let them ransack your house and kill you and your family) are, you know, just making the situation worse.

Self defense is a right, you jackass.

Just think, this moron is in charge of an entire police department and the safety of the citizens in his city.  Had Mr. Belton been armed and able to shoot the two little thugs, I bet Straub would be on TV bemoaning the gun crime in Spokane.

  2. This is the response that I got.

    Today, as Kenan Adams-Kinard, the second suspect in the homicide of WWII veteran Delbert Belton appears in court, the Spokane Police Department continues to investigate this tragic incident and is working closely with prosecutors to ensure that justice is served.

    I would like to be very clear regarding comments I made during yesterday’s news conference: this terrible tragedy should have never happened. Mr. Belton, a distinguished veteran, deserves to be honored for his service to his country.

    The Spokane Police Department quickly identified and arrested the two individuals believed to be responsible for Mr. Belton’s death. The Spokane Police Department will aggressively pursue any individual(s) who harm or threaten to harm our community.

    When I was asked yesterday about the significant injuries that Mr. Belton sustained, I responded by saying that those injuries were incurred when Mr. Belton fought back against his attackers. Mr. Belton’s actions were both appropriate and justified. In fact, I encouraged individuals to fight back against attackers and acknowledged that Mr. Belton was correct in doing so.

    We must also address the fact that two young men engaged in an act of violence that led to the death of a member of our community. We as a city must confront the challenge of youth-involved criminal activity and implement collaborative strategies to address this critical issue.

    1. Daniel,
      I haven’t received a detailed response yet. All I got so far was this:

      Thank you for contacting the Spokane Police Department. Your email will be reviewed within the next 3 – 5 days.

      Please remember that this site is not monitored on a daily 24 hr basis. If you are requesting immediate police assistance, please call 9-1-1. If you want to file a police report, please call Crime Check at 456-2233, or go to Crime Check online.

      I’m betting that the department has a canned response that will be very similar to the one you got.

      I’m going to email another response and tell him that he needs to listen closely to his own words to figure out why people reacted the way they did. He didn’t engage his brain before he opened his pie hole.

      This is my second email:
      Officer Fuller,

      Since Chief Straub will never read this email, perhaps you can pass it along.

      He needs to listen closely to his own words to figure out why people reacted the way they did. He didn’t engage his brain before he opened his pie hole. A better statement would have been:

      “Mr. Belton fought for his life against his attackers. He did not go down easy”.

      The way Straub described the crime made it sound as if Mr. Belton asked for what he got. If his fighting back enraged the two little gangsta thugs, tough shit. At least he got a piece of them before he died.
