Today's lesson: read this article. [Dayton RTA driver saved by religious text | Dayton, OH News, February 24, 2014] Apparently the big story here is a bus driver was nearly killed, but a bible stopped the bullets hitting his heart. Assailants unknown. Motive unknown.

But read another source: Learn that three “teens” did it possibly as gang initiation “to join the club.”[Police: Religious book may have saved RTA bus driver, WHIO. February 24, 2014]

Finally, we learn the driver was stabbed and shot and these “teens” were “polar bear hunting,” or specifically targeting white people.

Rickey Waggoner, 49, stopped his bus in the 1900 block of Lakeview Avenue just before 5:30 a.m. to fix a mechanical problem when police said when he was confronted by the teens.

He told police he was working on the bus when they approached from behind and he heard one say, “If you want to be all the way in the club, you have to kill the polar bear.” Waggoner said he turned to see three males, one with a gun pointed at his chest. He said the gunman fired twice.

Of course the article never describes “polar bear hunting” as hunting white people, so presumably many readers still wouldn't know the truth that three colored men were hunting a random white person to murder.

So there's the lesson. Three media sources and NONE tells the truth. NONE tells its readers that young colored men are out specifically looking for random whites to kill, OR that this is so common it even has a name in the colored community (“polar bear hunting”).

No, instead the story is just some random unknown assailants “were involved” in a shooting (and stabbing) of a random driver who was saved by his Bible.

If three white kids had gone hunting a random black, this would be the biggest story in the world for over a year. As is, it’s just another “dog bites man story” and not even worth mentioning.
