In the recent past, a gang of teenage thugs had been terrorizing neighborhoods in North and West Dublin, Ireland. The gang was linked to dozens of muggings, burglaries, robberies, and unprovoked assaults on the elderly and children!
They had made the life of the residents a living hell.
Last November, hundreds of people had protested outside the Balbriggan Garda Station in the hopes that Garda will be forced to take a more forceful action. However, these efforts of the terrorized people were to no avail.
Although Garda claim that they devoted “supreme efforts” to end the terror, the terror had continued.
Some residents have also alleged that unnecessary restraint is being exercised by Garda in view of the ethnicity of the gang.
So, when the police failed to do their job, these bikers stepped in!
These bikers are part of a motorcycle club who have modeled themselves after the Hells Angels. Although the Hells Angels are classified as a criminal organization by the US Department of Justice and many law enforcement agencies around the world, members of Hells Angels have frequently been seen indulging in a whole lot of social service.
Of course, there are people who say that this is just a PR effort by the “gang”, but nonetheless, the Angels are not all bad. And this motorcycle club in Dublin certainly wasn’t!
The Dublin-based club attacked the ring leaders of this gang of teenage thugs.
The authorities which didn’t take any sufficient action against the gang were the first to condemn the club’s vigilante action. However, the terrorized residents were all praise for them. Their actions were overwhelmingly welcomed by the residents, who finally good breathe a sigh of relief.
What’s your take on this? Would you have done what these bikers did? Do you think they were justified in taking the law into their hands? Don’t you think this needs to be done with the hands of laws are falling short? Let us know your views in the comments section below.
