There is a biker gang from Arizona who help keep child abuse victims safe while the child's abuser is prosecuted including guarding their houses at night person is not yet in jail and attending court with the child shielding them so they don't have to look at their abuser Ultrafactstumblrcom phoenix-phaedrana hurtlittleboy bama-5sos copperbadge drgaellon racethewind10 rowsdower-saves-us your-uncle-dave tinyfloatingwhales kikithegirl uriesays clatterbane haydengise ultrafacts groovypirate bee-the-gatekeeper chauvinistsushi bebinn hellkatsally ultrafacts Source These dudes are fucking legit They don’t just show up one day in court either they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back And less important but also cool is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it he got kind of shy and blushed and said “The kids are the awesome ones we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave” The source is long but so so good These men and women are available in 36 states 24 hours a day to stand guard at home in court at school even if the child has a nightmare Many of them are survivors of childhood abuse as well and know what it’s like to feel scared and alone In court that day the judge asked the boy “Are you afraid?” No the boy said Pipes says the judge seemed surprised and asked “Why not?” The boy glanced at Pipes and the other bikers sitting in the front row two more standing on each side of the courtroom door and told the judge “Because my friends are scarier than he is” Actual tears hnngh Show me more of people like this world I give up on humans too easily where do i sign up for thisi want to be in this gang This is fucking amazing It may be out of character for me to say this but rock on Bikers Against Child Abuse was founded in 1995 by a Native American child psychologist whose ride name is Chief when he came across a young boy who had been subjected to extreme abuse and was too afraid to leave his house He called the boy to reach out to him but the only thing that seemed to interest the child was Chief’s bike Soon some 20 bikers went to the boy’s neighborhood and were able to draw him out of his house for the first time in weeks Chief’s thesis was that a child who has been abused by an adult can benefit psychologically from the presence of even more intimidating adults that they know are on their side “When we tell a child they don’t have to be afraid they believe us” Arizona biker Pipes told azcentralcom “When we tell them we will be there for them they believe us” Article More about BACA from their site My parents are a part of this organization and they are metal af They go on runs to protect the child if they feel even the slightest threatened no matter where If the child needs them to go on vacation with them they do Bikers come from across the nation to watch over and take shifts for these kids And the best part is once you’re adopted into this family as a BACA kid you’re always one Even when you’re 40 and the perp gets released from jail they’ll come meet with you and find your best options for avoiding the person and maintaining the life you’ve built for yourself Once a BACA child always a BACA child In Florida there’s 100% rate for identifying the perp based on the child’s testimony Why? Because BACA stands with the child and supports the child so they feel comfortable enough to point out their attacker What’s better than a badass biker gang being on your side??? NATIVE AMERICAN CHILD PSYCHOLOGIST WHO IS A BIKER AND NAMED HIMSELF CHIEF HELL YES I’M HERE FOR THAT AND BIKERS BEING BAD ASS TO PROTECT KIDS HELL YEAH it’s back! I will always reblog BACA Damn good people I know they wouldn’t consider themselves such but these people are freaking heroes and the world is a better place because of them Hey folks it talks about this in the article but its not mentioned in this post BACA is a 501 © 3 charity that depends in part on donations to help pay for stuff like gas for their bikes If you want to help consider donating @copperbadge You like posting about heroes Sam Seems like this would be up your alley I love these folks! I’ve reblogged them before but it’s wonderful to see the donation information has been added Always reblog Keep doing what you’re doing y'all Guys? This post changed my life I saw this post Forever ago And thought it was only in america… and wished desperately that they could help me But then I saw it again during a bad episode and checked their site They aren’t just in the USA They’re in Canada as well and probably other countries I met and talked with a native guy who runs the place near me His name is Shaman I got in and I’m considered a BACA child now Despite being 17 turning 18 when I talked to them They spent time with me when my abuser was over they gave me therapy resources They give you something called a ‘level 1′ where they go to your house with as many bikers as they can i shit you not a solid 20-40 bikers came from even out of province and met me I got to choose my biker name and I got a vest with patches on it and my name on it They all hugged a Teddybear before giving it to me and told me if I ever felt the BACA bear was running out of love to give them a call and they’d refill it for me and then I got a ride on one of their bikes Just a day or so ago I went to an annual party with them and they we ate food one of them cooked and had a lot of laughs I’ve never felt as loved as I did being a part of the BACA family They also gave me dog tags with the names and phone numbers of my 2 workers So I can call them whenever I feel scared BACA is an absolutely wonderful group that will do everything in it’s power to help any child whos been abused And it doesn’t end when you’re 18 either As long as you get in contactget your level 1 before you’re 18? you’re ALWAYS a BACA kid I’m 18 now and they still invite me to parties ask me if I’m okay and are there for me They’re still trying to find me resources for therapy BACA has changed my fucking life I hope you all can read this and reblog it knowing from someone who fucking been with them that they are absolutely amazing This… the fact that this exists makes me so damn happy Meme
