One Biker Gang Out to Change the Stigma Attached to the Groups

A lot of the time, biker gangs get a bad rap and most for good reason. For instance, a few months ago people were outraged when a biker gang chased down a man and his family through the streets of New York City, pulled him from the car and savagely beat him in front of his wife and child. A story like that will probably turn most people sour on the idea of a biker gang.  Good thing that there are still people in this world that are can restore our faith.

The B.A.C.A Biker Gang is one gang that will undoubtedly receive resounding support.  Bikers Against Child Abuse members look like your typical, Sons of Anarchy cycle heads, but what they do for children in need is really something.  As shown in the video below and explained on their website. They will gather as many members as possible and make a ride to a victims home. Once there, they present them with their own “road name” and vest with their member patch.  In addition to that, two members are assigned to the child and will follow up with them weekly to make sure everything is going ok.

And that’s just the first step of their intervention process.  Per their website, there are 3 more intervention stages to help the children.

Level 2 Intervention

If Level one is not sufficient to deter further abuse or harassment, several BACA members will be sent for further exposure. This group of BACA members will create a presence at the home of the child, being visible at times when the family might be the most vulnerable. The purpose of BACA’s presence is to deter further abuse and to protect the children and the family, if necessary.

Level 3 Intervention

If the physical presence of our BACA members at the residence of the child’s home does not deter the abuser, a formal letter will be drafted by the Chapter President or Vice-President in the area in which the abuser lives. This letter will be written on BACA letterhead. The substance of the letter will be to explain to the perpetrator that we are prepared to take whatever steps are necessary to become the obstacle to further abuse.

Level 4 Intervention

While it is against the purpose of BACA to purposely engage a perpetrator, we will ask for the general geographical location of the offender, and conduct a “Neighborhood Awareness Ride” in which we will ride to the general location given to us and go door to door letting people know who we are, hand out stickers to kids, and distribute our literature regarding our mission and how we function. If the location or address of the perpetrator becomes known to any BACA Member, we will immediately withdraw our physical presence to avoid any contact. BACA does not condone, support or participate in the use of aggression, violence or physical force in any manner. If, however, ANY person should seek to inflict harm on one of our BACA Members, we will respond with commitment and loyalty to protect our Member.

In addition to all of that, the BACA members will also be present during court appearances by the victims to help support them and calm them, allowing the victim to give an accurate testimony.

I don’t know about you guys, but I think every child needs a “Tree” in their life.
