I must say that Paul and Zabeth stated their case with confidence and detailed explanation. After all, it was a significantly more receptive interrogation than the cross-examination within the court room. The recorded audio portion is cited below for you. It was a 60 minute show with numerous call-ins, citation of other cases, expressed abhorrence at the treatment this couple has experienced from the Ministry of Children and Family. Below is a 3 min video clip and a 50 min audio clip.
It was healthy for me to listen because I was reminded of 18th century Utilitarianist and philosopher, Jeremy Bentham's words, "Where there is no publicity there is no justice. Publicity is the very soul of justice. It is the very spur to exertion and the surest of all guards against improbity". Frankly, I needed that. As I have been rethinking this blog purpose and approach recently, that statement inspired me. Free Speech is fundamental to our democracy. Injustice is intolerable. Three and one half years for children in government custodial care without the proper orders in place is injustice. And publicity of an injustice to the Baynes is what fired this blog these past 16 months. And if publicity is the very soul of justice, and perhaps an elixir to the conscience of a community, then we have little option but to keep speaking.

8:30 – 9:30 pm: PAUL & ZABETH BAYNE Paul & Zabeth are in-studio to share the story of their on-going struggle with the Ministry of Children & Family, to have their four children returned to them. This is an important story that illustrates why the unbridled power of incompetent social workers must be curtailed.
What do we do when the child abuser is the social worker? What do we do when judges hide behind the law, putting their reputations ahead of a child’s best interests? Why are we as tax-payers paying, in excess of, $6000.00 per month to a foster family, when the children’s grandparents are willing to have them? This could be your family. When are we willing to say “enough is enough!”?
Click here for the background on the Bayne family’s plight; this is an excellent and important blog! (here, is a reference to the ronunruhGPS blog.)
