Protesters have their voices heard at the Westchester DA's book signing

District Attorney Jeanine Pirro's book is getting mixed reviews from county residents.

Protesters gathered outside the Barnes and Noble on Central Avenue in Yonkers Thursday night, calling the DA's book nothing but lies. Meanwhile Pirro was busy signing her book "To Punish and Protect: One DA's Fight Against a System that Coddles Criminals."

But protesters believe Pirro herself coddles criminals. They held up signs and pictures of Rob Viscome, the Harrison teen who died after being punched by fellow classmate Patrick Rukaj at an underage drinking party. Rukaj was only charged with a misdemeanor and never served jail time. Viscome's uncle called Pirro an embarrassment and doesn't understand how she could let kids get away with murder.

Despite some criticism, more than 70 people stood on line to get their copy of Pirro's book signed. Pirro's next book signing will be on November 17 at the Scarsdale Public Library.
