Absolutely, Positively COOL: BACA  
http://www.azcentral.com/news/azliving/articles/2012/07/13/20120713bikers-against-child-abuse-make-abuse-victims-feel-safe.html?page=1

Excerpt: "These tough bikers have a soft spot: aiding child-abuse victims. Anytime, anywhere, for as long as it takes the child to feel safe, these leather-clad guardians will stand tall and strong against the dark, and the fear, and those who seek to harm."

They even go to court with them!

I wonder if they did school presentations about what they do if more children would report abuse? Often they are threatened by the abuser that if they come forward they or even their families will be killed. Knowing they could call on these strong bodyguards might make them feel safe enough to tell.
