Biker heroes: Hells Angels guardians for kids?

Shoppers Bikersat the Fresno, California, Wal-Mart this Black Friday could have been forgiven if they had a bit of trepidation while starting their holiday shopping.

Five days before the retail extravaganza, members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club began camping out at the store. The burly tattooed bikers, wearing their cuts, were an intimidating sight, and when sales began, they bought every bicycle in the store—more than 200—and promptly donated them to the Poverello House, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping the homeless and needy.
