200 Bikers Have This Kid’s Back
We hear a lot about bullying these days. Workplace intimidation, body shaming, online bullying. Those all seem to be more "grown-up" versions of just plain old-fashioned bullying...like this kid suffered.
10-year-old Xander Rose lives up in Nova Scotia, and he's been dealing with bullies for almost his entire life. Except for his brother, and one buddy...he says pretty much everyone at school picks on him.
Well, Xander is really into the biking culture...and I don't mean the Lance Armstrong kind. I'm talking the Harley Davidson kind. So his mom finally had enough of the harassment, so she reached out to a group of bikers called Defenders of the Children.
Tuesday, dozens of big burly dudes on bikes showed up to escort him to school as a show of force, so other kids know they've got his back. According to one report from CBA, 200 bikers showed up. Defenders of the Children all met up early and all to Xander's house together to pick him up. Then they showed took him to school on the back of a Harley...in full biker gear. A bunch of them even walked him to the front door before he went in.
He'll also get to meet up with some of his new biker friends again at a big rally that's happening next month.
