Another day… Another corrupt cop goes down stealing from his own…
Pissed-off citizens of El Dorado County, CA consisting of the west slope area of Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Georgetown, Shingle Springs, Fair Play, Pollock Pines, Camino and all the way to South Lake Tahoe have formed political PAC called Committee of Vigilance Against Corruption or COVAC.info to take on local county corruption.
Citizens are outraged to learn of the escalating wrongdoings, eyebrow raising salaries in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, double dipping, and vendettas by county officials primarily in the El Dorado County District Attorney office under the watch of Vern Pierson and William “Bill” Clark.
Lake Tahoe has more law enforcement than you can shake you paddleboard stick at. There is to name a few, SLTPD, EDCSO, DCSH, WCSO, PCSO, US Forest Service, US Coast Guard, FBI office at Stateleine (in the same building as TRPA on Market St.) and more…
A former El Dorado County Sheriff’s sergeant has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.
William Wilson (pictured), 51, was arrested Monday after the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office filed criminal misdemeanor charges, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

On Sunday, June 30, just before 7 p.m. the South Lake Tahoe 911 Center received a report of an abandon pressure cooker on the ground at the Lakeview Commons located at Lakeview Avenue and U.S. 50. This call was just prior to the conclusion of the Race the Lake of the Sky paddle board event, which took place at the Lakeview Commons.
The South Lake Tahoe Police Department, with the assistance of Race the Lake of the Sky security and event staff, cleared the immediate area. SLTPD was forced to divert Higvhway 50 traffic around the area of Lakeview Commons to ensure public safety until the package could be more closely examined.
The Tahoe Douglas Bomb Squad responded and attempted to destroy the cooker with their bomb robot. When that failed, a bomb team member, wearing protective gear, walked in and destroyed the devise with a PAN Disrupter which is a type of water cannon.
Once the device was rendered safe, it was determined to be an industrial sized electronic rice cooker which contained food. Traffic was diverted for approximately two hours.

When Sly was asked to explain what is really going on today at probation, he emailed LTN, “Current direction from the CAO and County Counsel is that all media questions are referred to them. Therefore, I need to refer you to their offices.”
Those who are left to do the work at the South Lake Tahoe and Placerville detention centers say there is a culture of harassment and discrimination within the department…
Harassment, according to those who spoke with LTN, is verbal and sexual – and ongoing.
