Biker Against Child Abuse Supports Abuse Victims In The Coolest Way Possible

Meet the world’s greatest biker “gang.” Bikers Against Child Abuse is a group of leather-clad motorcycle lovers on a mission to empower and protect child victims of abuse. The video below is heartwarming, so have a few tissues handy.

According to the video, the group will give each child they support a road name and a vest with their own patch. They assign the child two bikers who pledge to be there for them through thick and thin. This can include standing watch at their house if they’ve been assaulted and are scared, and even going with the child to court if the kid needs to testify.

The cases that these men and women take on are gut wrenching, including a 10-year-old rape victim and an 8-year-old who was beaten by their mom. There are victims of molestation and mental abuse as well, and each story is heartbreaking. These aren’t just a bunch of biker dudes playing shrink either. They are all trained by professional mental health care workers, registered with the state welfare association, given background checks and fingerprinted.

As a survivor of sexual abuse myself, I think the symbolism here is wonderful. These bikers are there to make sure these kids don’t feel alone and powerless. According to Organization member Pipes:

 “It’s scary enough for an adult to go to court. We’re not going to let one of our little wounded kids go alone.” In court that day, the judge asked the boy, “Are you afraid?” No, the boy said. The judge then asked “Why not?” and the boy said “Because my friends are scarier than he is.”

    Yay! I submitted this video! :D
    I think this group is great. They’re supporting kids and breaking down stereotypes about scary looking biker people.

    I saw this! I think it is really awesome that they do this. These kids stop being afraid, because as far as they’re concerned, their new friends scare the monsters away.

    For anyone wondering, you can donate to them through their website. Personally, I think it’s so worth it. I’m waiting for my wages to come in so I can do it myself. There’s also a biker group that rescues abused animals. I like these friendly bikers.

    This action on the part of these bikers is heartwarming as accused pedophiles like Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. must be apprehended before they have years to prey upon innocent children.. Sandusky and Watkins are now safely behind bars. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama USA and Hermin / Mazingarbe, France, has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little bo, but has since fled to France. Pedophiles condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often of physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure they must be stopped ASAP!
