Ashley Wastakiewicz has been the victim of a neighborhood bully for years, making her life a living hell and sending her to the hospital on multiple occasions.
“She was pushing her bike home and the bully had pushed her to the ground, had kicked her and had punched her in her face,” her mom, Christine said. The boy was eventually charged with assault.
Things got so bad, that Ashley was afraid to go outside, so her mom created an anti-bullying Facebook page called “Justice For Ashley” to rally support for her daughter.
Ashley posted a video which caught the attention of a local motorcycle club. Dozens of bikers met Ashley and her mom at a park and let the girl know she was not alone. They then gathered not far from the bully’s home and ushered Ashley by.
“We stood by her and walked her down the street to pay the troubled neighbor boy a visit, and she rode her scooter with pride along side us saying ‘I’m not scared anymore’ with a big smile on her face” wrote John R. Spencer, one of the bikers who showed up to help.
Here is John R. Spencer’s full post on Facebook about what he and his friends did to help:
“We made a difference tonight and helped in the widespread fight against bullying, particularly with a very serious case with a wonderful little 7 year old girl named Ashley, whom has (had) a terrible bully in her neighborhood for quite some time now and has been terrified to play outside her own home after being sent to the E.R. and continuously threatened and hurt.”
