Rally against the family court

I missed this today, on an island next to Oakland California:
Archisand Professional Sand Sculptors, a premier team of artists pursuing this craft, will create a significant sand sculpture ribbon for the newly-formed organization “Best Interest of the Child in Custody Cases (BICCC).” Individuals and families who have suffered injustices in Family Court are encouraged to attend the event. There they can sign the ribbon, share their stories, and join a support network to help reform the Family Court system. This event will be held on Sunday, October 10, 2010 in the City of Alameda.

Alameda County Supervisor Gail Steele, a member of the BICCC, states, “In so many instances the decision of the Family Court is not in the best interest of the child. This is not just a problem in Alameda County, but across the country as well.” In fact the State of California has approved auditing the Family Courts of Marin and Sacramento. Marin County, however, destroyed its Family Courts records, which are now unavailable for audit by the State of California.
I am suspicious of some organization whose main purpose is to draw attention to the fact that the family courts do not always act in the Best Interest Of The CHild (BIOTCH). Of course they don't. I have never seen the family court act in the BIOTCH. That is just some meaningless buzz phrase that the family court cites when it does something really stupid.
