EL DORADO COUNTY -- El Dorado County will be paying the travel expenses for some of its homeless so they can to reduce the homeless population in the county.
At last count, El Dorado County has a homeless population of about 600 people. Most of them have always lived there, like Rose Johnson, who owned her own business for 20 years.

APRIL 10, 2018  SACRAMENTO, CALIF.—Crime survivors and law enforcement leaders on Monday criticized a legal system they said has gone too far in reversing get-tough-on-crime policies of past decades as they stood before hundreds of photographs of crime victims as part of their annual Capitol rally.

They urged voters to support a ballot initiative that would roll back portions of measures passed in 2014 and 2016 that critics say impede investigations and free violent offenders too soon.

Crime Victims United of California President Nina Salarno Besselman said the rollbacks are needed "to restore balance to our criminal justice system."
