Placeville Newswire Note: I observed the protest for about one hour and during that time about 20% of the passing vehicles yelled out expressing support for the protesters. One patron having lunch with his wife at the Pizzeria across the street expressed support for the protest but with this caveat, "Good Luck, they do what they want in El Dorado County." It was clear that there was widespread public perception that there was some form of corruption in the administration of justice in El Dorado County.
