‘Dumb as bricks’ robbers target biker meeting
March 1, 2008
My editor sent me this the other day and I couldn’t resist posting it here. I have this thing for take-no-bull Harley biker riders. In fact, there’s a gang of geriatric biker witches in The Accidental Demon Slayer and I think they’d be high-fiving these real-life Harley riders for what they did at the Southern Cross Cruiser Club in Sydney, Australia. The gist of the story is this:
Two masked, machete wielding would-be bad ass robbers burst into a bar, looking to rob and pillage. Instead, they ran straight into a monthly meeting of about 50 bikers. The angry bikers fought back with tables, chairs, pretty much anything that wasn’t bolted down. They subdued one would-be robber in the bar, and chased down the other one outside, crash-tackled him, hog tied him with electrical wire and left him for the police.

So you see, while there’s room for political correctness in this world, room for rules and what we “should” do – sometimes, you need to paint outside the lines, channel your inner biker and kick some butt.
