“Beating the diminutive Belton to death with their fists and flashlights…” 

Perhaps taking a cue from the New Black Panther Party, the Aryan Brotherhood is reported to have offered a $10,000 reward for the killers of an 88-year-old World War II veteran, as reported by KOMO News (of Seattle, WA) on Nov. 19, 2013.

Newly released court documents reveal that the white supremacist gang placed a bounty  on the heads of the two teens charged with beating Delbert Belton to death last August of this year.

Facing life in prison if found guilty of killing the survivor of the Battle of Okinawa, the two 16-year- old suspects, who have been in police custody since Aug. 27, 2013, will be tried as adults. The pair was charged with first-degree murder, first degree robbery, and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery.

As reported by The Washington Times on Sept. 13, 2013, Belton was attacked by the two as he exited “an Eagles Lodge in Spokane in August to his car parked across the street.”

Belton survived one of the bloodiest battles in human history wherein both the ground and naval battles of Okinawa sustained upward of 275,000 deaths among the Allied and Japanese forces involved in combat as well as the innocent Okinawans caught in the crossfire.

However hellish Okinawa was, Belton couldn’t survive the streets of his own hometown.
