Very sorry, hopefully the attached of what transpired can help., ‘Viciousness’ seems too light a characterization, believe that I’d go with barbarism or barbarity which I tend to associate with the long-term decline of the U.S.political econ. on one side and increasingly militaristic struggle to retain hegemony.on another.
” A WWII veteran who fought at the Battle of Okinawa, where he took a bullet to the leg and continued fighting, was beaten to death by two teens Wednesday night.
Delbert Belton, 88, from Spokane, Wash., was pronounced dead Thursday morning, KHQ reported.
Two male teens pummeled Belton outside a pool hall in what police describe a random attack.
“There was no indication that he would have known these people prior to the assault,” Spokane Police Major Crimes Detective Lieutenant Mark Griffiths said.
Belton, who friends affectionally called “Shorty,” enjoyed playing pool and working on cars. …
Friend of Belton, Lillian Duncan, told The Spokesman-Review that the veteran was waiting in the parking lot for her so they could walk into the pool hall together.
“Anybody that didn’t get to know him missed out on a wonderful angel in their life,” Duncan said.
Police are looking for two black male teens. One suspect was described as heavy set and wearing all black clothing. The other has been described as being about 6 feet tall and 150 pounds, and was wearing a silk do-rag. The Spokane Police Department is hoping the public can help track down the suspects based on video footage of the two.

If the photos are meaningful, might be that the other suspect was more involved. But… still your question…..,
