The shooting may have been a gang initiation after Wagoner told cops that one of the suspects said 'we need to shot a polar bear to get in a club'
Polar bear hunting is gang slang for a random attack on an unsuspecting victim.

A bus driver in Trotwood, Ohio, is recovering in hospital after remarkably surviving being shot at point blank range in an unprovoked random attack seemingly linked to a gang initiation ceremony.

Rickey Wagoner, 49, was assaulted by three men while he stood beside his bus in the early hours of Monday morning.

I think you know what they mean by polar bears, even if the reporters don't want to spell it out.

Could it be that 'young black males' choosing that particular animal to describe this activity indicates the attacks somewhat less random than this article contends?

The other thing they didn’t want to spell out was that it was a BIBLE. One reporter called it “a religious devotional book” rather than stating what it actually was!! Political correctness gone crazy!!

"Um, they said they were 'Polar Bear hunting'. That falls under the EPA."


"Uh, no. 'Hunting' isn't in our jurisdiction. This is a matter for the Interior Department"


"Uh, the United States Department of the Interior does not manage polar bears. Polar bears are hunted by Native Americans. This would be a matter best handled by the Bureau of Indian Affairs."


"Since this did not involve an actual polar bear, the Bureau of Indian Affairs is not involved. This is a matter for the Justice Department."


"Um, they said they were 'Polar Bear hunting'. That falls under the EPA."

Polar bear hunting is gang slang for a random attack on an unsuspecting “WHITE” victim.

Corrected for accuracy.

Cops are looking for two people that killed a cab driver in Houston Thursday night. The description on the news tonight was “two people in dark clothing and baggy pants”.

The polar bear hunting was of course left out of the Dayton Daily News reporting of these events. Usually the description of the criminals are described as “teens” or “young males” with an “unknown motive” in their reporting.
But word is slowly getting out despite attempts to “manage” the news and even these liberal rags have to start to report events as they are actually happening thanks to alternative media.

The bus driver’s route took him to the wrong side of the Bell Curve.

In our area, they use “snow bunnies”, at least for the young girls who are white and interest the young black males
