(CNN) -- 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.

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.

    Seeing that Obama is NOT speaking out on these recent Black on White Hate crimes, and that He employs a Man who openly advocates for the Blacks to rise up and start a Race War with whites, the only logical conclusion one can reach.....is that Obama WANTS a Race war.
    This is the Reason why Americans must defend our Right to be armed.
