In Pennsylvania, 16-year-old Sean Maehrer, who has Down Syndrome, had been bullied in the past at school and was preparing to start a new year at Salisbury High School last September. His parents were worried about him being taunted even more by the school bullies, and posted their anxieties on Facebook.
When a local motorcycle group got word of that, its members geared up to make sure Sean was not going to be the target of any bullies. So a group of 16 bikers escorted him to school, with Sean riding on the back of one of the bikes while wearing a helmet and vest.
When he got to school, another 100 bikers were there to greet him. I’d venture to say Sean never had any more problems with the bullies.
