“FA” was just 10 years old when her stepfather starting abusing her. By the time she was 15 and preparing to testify against him, she was suicidal, afraid, and unable to sleep.
Then she met Tombstone, a lifelong biker and member of BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse), a group whose sole mission is to empower children who have been victimized. Dressed in leather, the rough looking group stood guard at her house 24 hours until she felt safe.
“There’s just all these bikes,” she says. “There’s these huge, tall men and they were in their vests and their boots, huge beards and strong-looking women. They looked very tough.”
“It was incredible to see my daughter for the first time almost in three years, relax,” her mom says. The experience changed the course of “FA’s” life.
