Video Blast From the Past - Victoria Balfour speaks at the CCAT

[Original post: 03/27/10 10:00am PST by DS]
After much battle with computer video processing software and video upload services, and computer crashes, and life in general, I've FINALLY finished the process of editing and uploading some video that was taken of a talk given by Victoria Balfour, on the subject of william ayres.

Victoria Balfour, who was awarded the 2009 "Excellence in the Media" award for "Meritorious Public Service" from the Institute on Violence, Abuse, and Trauma, speaks about her experiences in getting william hamilton ayres arrested for multiple counts of child molestation.

This talk was given last year for the The Children's Collaborative Action Team (CCAT), of the San Mateo County Child Abuse Prevention Council, on Thursday, February 26, 2009. "Citizen Whistleblowers: Taking Action When No One Else Will."  This is broken into 11 parts on YouTube. The first part is above, the rest are stacked below this post.  You can click this link to automatically run all of the YouTube videos in order.

Thanks go to the volunteers who shot the video! Harry Padilla and Richard Carlson were able to film the talk on very short notice, and did a great job!  They did a good job of following the conversation, and I'm sorry to have blurred out the parts that showed the crowd, but I didn't want to expose anyone who might not want to be exposed.

You can just follow the segments on YouTube, or you can download the video. The video is 180MB in size, and you'll need to click on the "Download Anyway" link after it warns you that the file isn't scanned for viruses.

Anyhow, here are the rest of the segments:

  1. Note that the moderator was former San Mateo juvenile judge Pat Bresee. Bresee used to know Ayres. At this presentation Bresee apologized for sending boys to Ayres.
