It’s no secret that I think he should have been fired right after the Sandra Lee Harmon Execution by San Mateo County Sheriff employees. He was one of the lead obstructionist in getting to the truth about what REALLY happened on the evening of January 5, 2020. I recommended to him that he have the City of Half Moon Bay sue San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, his attorney David Silberman, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, his investigators, Jordan Boyd, John Warren, William Massey, Kevin Raffaelli, and all involved in the Homicide.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. was shot in the back while she had her hands above her head as she was UNARMED. All three of those shots were FATAL. Her body was struck 8 times.
Three spent shell casings were moved at the crime scene. That’s known as Evidence Tampering.
There was no evidence of a shootout.
Bob Nesbit was fine with that. He made ZERO effort in Releasing the Axon Log Records to the Public.
Update: 4:00 PM March 17, 2022 Attorney for San Mateo County Daniel T. McCloskey appeared and informed the Judge that Mr. Eblovi filled a Motion to Dismiss the case 2 weeks ago. The Judge checked his records and said the court has no record of that being filed. Mr. Eblovi did not make an appearance.
DAVID C. EBLOVI vs. COUNTY OF SAN MATEO – 21CV002208
This is a case to watch, Why would a resident of Half Moon Bay, California be compelled to Sue the Government of San Mateo County over the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. by the Sheriff’s Office Employees on May 5, 2020.
Why would David Eblovi file the Lawsuit in Alameda County and not San Mateo County?
Why does San Mateo County Government want this case heard in SMC?
Mr. Eblovi knows the truth about how San Mateo County Government works and it is the Residents who are responsible for the behavior of ALL Government Officials.
As a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 21 years, I have always recommended releasing the recording evidence unedited to the public within 24 hours.
On May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Homicide by Law Enforcement in Half Moon Bay was no different. I recommended the release of the UNEDITED Body Worn Camera Video to the public within 24 hours. Not one of the FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors did the same.
Supervisor David Canepa is now Fundraising and is a Candidate for Congress.
Here we are 22 months after the Homicide and San Mateo County Counsel files this: Answering Paragraph 3, Defendants admit that Defendant Deputy Dominguez failed to turn on his body worn camera immediately prior to the incident at issue.
Supervisor David Canepa, What is the EVIDENCE to support that statement? You should know what the evidence is that has your Attorneys making that statement. You have attended several Closed door sessions being briefed on this lawsuit.
Affirmative Defenses Defendants have not yet completed discovery, propounded interrogatories, submitted requests for documents, or taken depositions. WHY? It’s simple release the AXON Log Records. They will confirm or prove false the statement just made by County Counsel.
San Mateo County and SMCSO were aware that Dominguez resigned from the San Mateo Police Department due to unsatisfactory performance in the field training program.
Dated: February 2, 2022 Respectfully submitted, JOHN C. BEIERS, COUNTY COUNSEL By:Joseph F. Charles, Deputy Karen Rosenthal, Deputy, Daniel McCloskey, Deputy Attorneys for Defendants COUNTY OF SAN MATEO, DAVID DOMINGUEZ. JOHN BABA, CITY OF HALF MOON BAY
I ask the question again, How much Taxpayer money has been invested in the defense of SMC, City of Half Moon Bay and Deputy David Dominguez?
Once you answer that question, the next question is Why did you approve that?
John Beiers is an At-Will employee: Respectfully submitted, JOHN C. BEIERS, COUNTY COUNSEL
It’s a Felony to file a False Instrument with the Court. PC115A
This is no surprise under the leadership of City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester. It turns out former Chief of Police and Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez has not been on the job for the last 4 months. The announcement that Captain Andy Armando is now the Police Chief of Half Moon Bay just recently was reported by the HMBR.
A simple google search of Lt. Andrew Armando would have produced some of the articles San Mateo County News.com wrote about him committing crimes against retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.
“Detective Armando Perjuriously alleged that Mr. Lopez placed a telephone call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.” Detective Armando made that call himself.
No Press Release from the Sheriff’s Office announcing Captain Andy Armando taking over at HMB. Why?
acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.”
Judge Vince Chhabria saw what everybody who watched the video saw. Good for Sarah Gatliff
January 19, 2022, Judge Vince Chhabria wrote that it was plausible to believe Deputy David Dominguez, one of two officers to shoot the 56-year-old woman suffering from mental health issues, acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.” The judge noted that video evidence established that Dominguez shot Harmon in the back, while her hands were raised over her head, and that that shot was fatal.
Take a wild guess who else knows/knew that? You can start with the Supervisors of San Mateo County.
Every resident of San Mateo County should know who Sarah Gatliff is and support her in going ALL the way to a Jury Trial, no settlements. The Public has a right to know what really happened to her mother Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.
For example SMCSO Deputy David Dominguez FIRED THREE SHOTS FIRST.
It’s been 19 months since Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. was executed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez on May 5, 2020 in a parking lot located at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County.
The San Mateo County Government provided a Critical Incident Video about 40 days after the Homicide. This video was created by San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd who labeled it as “unaltered” when if fact it had been altered. The Video shows Sandra Lee Harmon being shot at while unarmed and hands above her head with her back towards Deputy Dominguez. No labeling saying Deputy fired at unarmed woman. Fact Ms. Harmon was shot in the back three times all fatal.
If the County, the District Attorney, and the Sheriff of San Mateo County had determined in their investigation that Dominguez acted properly, they would never have altered the video and attempted to present it as unaltered; they would have just been honest. And there simply is no justification in any reasonable investigation to fail even to request records pertaining to Dominguez’ body cam. If Dominguez had acted with a true police objective there would be no need for the false reports, the underhanded editing of the video, nor the fear that Dominguez’ camera may hold relevant evidence.
It is Illegal to file a False Police report.
Joseph F. Charles knows this information and couldn’t care less. He’s fine with it, he is a San Mateo County Counsel Attorney.
This is what he says about himself.
About I am passionate about serving my clients and helping them to successfully navigate the constantly changing landscape of the law. Nothing is more satisfying to me than finding a creative and efficient solution to a client’s legal dilemma. I believe that through uncompromising client service and by attaining an intimate and thorough understanding of my clients’ needs and objectives, I am able to not only resolve their current legal issues but help them to develop a plan and perspective for avoiding future legal problems.
Release the AXON LOG RECORDS, The District Attorney’s Office claims they never requested them.
Next court date for Sandra Lee Harmon’s daughter Sarah Gatliff is January 13, 2021
Case 3:21-cv-01463-VC Estate of Sandra Lee Harmon, Sarah Gatliff. (Bush, David) (Filed on 12/30/2021)
Is David Silberman Nuts, No, simply dishonest and his job is to protect the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. Of course there is a DISPUTE, there is NO EVIDENCE provided to prove when Deputy Dominguez turned his Body Worn Camera on and off.
That’s why the AXON LOG RECORDS have not been made public, they will provide the Factual Evidence.
This is just one of the many examples of why I say San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman should be Fired.
“I think I should begin by noting that there is no current factual dispute based on evidence about when Deputy Dominguez turned his camera on and off.” This can be found on Page 11
Half Moon Bay Resident David Eblovi was forced to sue San Mateo County this week because his elected Officials and 2 City Managers didn’t chose too, That is a story all by itself, more on that later.
Sandra Lee Harman R.I.P. was killed on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay, California, she was shot at 14 times with hollow point bullets, 8 of the bullets struck her body, 3 fatal shots to her BACK, she was shot at while unarmed, with her hands above her head, Three shell casings were moved and relocated at the crime scene.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos informed San Mateo County that SMCSO Deputy David Dominguez’s Body Worn Camera was turned off at the time he fired 11 shots killing Sandra Lee Harman.
Has Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos ever lied to the public before, Yes of course he has, Everybody and their mother knows that.
Very few Citizens have taken the time to Investigate and ask What is the TRUTH about the Homicide by Sheriff Employees of Sandra Lee Harman.
I can tell you David Eblovi is one of the few who did.
San Mateo County Residents should say Thank You, David Eblovi.
I recommended the Half Moon Bay City Council, City Managers and the City Attorney sue Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his attorney San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, for their refusal to provide the AXON LOG RECORDS to the Public. They are the only two people standing in the way of releasing the AXON LOG RECORDS which are bought and paid for by the Taxpayers of San Mateo County. They also contain the data that would confirm the Government’s Story that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez’s Body Worn Camera was in fact turned off when he fired 11 shots at Sandra Lee Harmon on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay. HMB chose not to file the lawsuit.
What do you do when the Government refuses to do their job?
The residents of San Mateo County are responsible for the behavior of their Government, Elected Officials and Appointed Staff.
San Mateo County Residents should be Thanking, David C. Eblovi of Half Moon Bay for doing what the City Government should have done.
Mark Melville has folded, he recently contacted San Mateo County News.com, to inform me that he will not be a candidate in the 2022 election. I wish him all the best, I remember when I first met him in Foster City, and I said the same thing I said to Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez, when I first met him and he first announced he was going to run against Sheriff Greg Munks in 2014. I said “You are either very Brave or Very Naive.”
Now that that has been settled it makes room for another candidate and possibly more for the Election 2022. Candidates filing window is February 14, 2022-March 7, 2022.
At this moment there are 2 Candidates for Sheriff, both of them thought it would be great idea to Investigate the Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Investigation. For a reasonable thinking person that would be a RED FLAG, non-starter, It would be known as a Conflict of Interest in most circles.
I look forward to see how things shake out. That leaves 7 months for the Residents to ask the questions they have for the Candidates, That is plenty of time.
