Here's the Victoria Balfour interview from Tuesday, March 31, 2009, discussing the william h ayres case. Her part starts about half-way through. You can download the mp3 file if you have iTunes, just by clicking on the little iTunes logo.
Warning if you're a victim:
There are a couple of comments made by the interviewers which may be troubling:
1. One of the interviewers, in talking about a molester (who's cover of choice was to be a school teacher) tried really hard to give him credit for being a "fantastic teacher" who "happened" to also be a molester. This kind of thing enrages me. It certainly IS OK to take away "credit" when the goodwill is only earned to be a useful tool to get to victims more easily. NO HE WAS NOT A FANTASTIC TEACHER. WHY DO I NEED TO BE THE ONE TO SPELL THIS OUT?? To be fair, I DO NOT think that the interviewer intended to be insensitive about this, and perhaps for people not in my position, it's not really an issue (and frankly I think that THAT is a big part of the problem); but for me, it becomes the unfortunate focal point of the interview.
2. There is a fairly blunt description of how long this crap will affect the victims. I know it instinctively, but it was fairly traumatic to hear it out loud, and not coming from the voice inside my head...
Ms. Balfour gave a another great interview. It's good to have someone tenacious there, when mostly you just want to hide your head in the sand.
Who IS that mystery heavy breather?
