Though the Punishers Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (LE/MC) may seem like a tough group of people, they appear to have at least one soft spot -- for the victims of bullying.
The biker group came to a 5-year-old girl's rescue in Albuquerque, New Mexico, after she was reportedly jumped and beaten up by bullies, according to ABC 8.
The girl also reportedly suffers from mental disabilities.
When the Punishers heard of her problems, they decided to help out.
“We were asked to talk to a young lady who was a victim of bullying,” Aaron Holmes, a member of the Punishers LE/MC, told ABC 8. “We rounded up all the bikes and we rode over to the little girl’s house and said hi.”
The Punishers LE/MC is not the kind of biker gang you see on shows like "Sons of Anarchy." Composed of military veterans and former police officers, the group focuses their efforts on helping those in the community.
“We are all pretty soft hearted,” said Norman Gonzalez, president of the Albuquerque Punishers LE/MC. “I’m actually a nurse.”
According to the group, the girl warmed up to them and they formed a bond with her.
“We told her that we are always there for her no matter what,” Gonzalez said.
They encouraged the 5-year-old to stand up for herself, according to Gonzalez.
“Emotionally, it was a good feeling,” he said.
According to their website, the Punishers LE/MC "consists of current law enforcement, retired law enforcement, firefighters, active EMS personnel, active and retired military, and select few of like minded individuals."
