Daly City, San Mateo County is the perfect example of the Corruption that plagues the entire County.
On April 7, 2021 Roger Allen a Black man was shot and killed by somebody while he was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck with a flat tire. That we know, and that is about all we know for now.
That was 25 days ago. Here are two examples from well established print and T.V. Media
Daly City officials changed course Thursday and identified four officers at the scene of the fatal police shooting of Roger Allen, after facing backlash for initially refusing to release the names.
Daly City on Thursday released the names of four officers involved in the fatal shooting of a 44-year-old San Francisco man earlier this month.
What I am asking is How was this information made public and by Who?
On April 26, 2021 Mayor Juslyn Manalo promised a Press Release naming the 4 Officers would occur on Wednesday. That did not happen.
A Press/News Release is pretty simple and straight forward, Date, Agency and person responsible for the statement. It would be on the Daily City Website somewhere, If it came from Police Chief Patrick Hensley you would expect to find it on the DCPD Website. It’s not. If Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager or Mayor Juslyn Manalo produced it, you would expect it to be on the City’s Website with their name on it. It’s not.
San Mateo County Residents were put on notice on April 25, 2007 by San Mateo County District Attorney James P. Fox R.I.P. and Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Those Who Matter, Modern Media efforts to make a story out of a non story, It will be Yesterday’s News and Irrelevant by tomorrow.
Think about that for a moment, Where do you get your information about San Mateo County?
Bay City News once wrote former “Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Embezzled $400,000” from his campaign funds. When asked where did the reporter get that number, he said he didn’t recall.
The point I’m making is San Mateo County Elected Officials and Staff provide the information to a supportive News Business, Like Bay City News or a local TV station. They don’t ask any questions they simply make public the story SMC Government wants you to know.
Where is the Press Release that Mayor Juslyn Manalo promised?
“The City understands that the incident has raised questions in our community.”
The above Press Release demonstrates that the Elected Officials and Staff of Daly City know how to produce a Press Release.
Why has it never been on the Daly City Website or anywhere for that matter?
