David Canepa, How much has SMC Taxpayers paid to defend Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez?

By Michael G. Stogner

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

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

Half Moon Bay has a Brady Officer for Chief of Police.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

Sheriff Captain Andy Armando

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?

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

Next Court Date is February 9, 2022 1:00 P.M.

By Michael G. Stogner

You will recall Sandra Lee Harmon was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. San Mateo County Government never came out and informed the public that the SMC Employees shot at her while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. They also failed to mention she was shot in the back while unarmed.

Sarah the daughter is in court today on ZOOM at 1:00PM

Joseph F. Charles, is Fine with it.

By Michael G. Stogner

Joseph F. Charles

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.

Sarah Gatliff, Don’t Settle, Go all the way to a Jury Trial. It’s the only way to cause change in San Mateo County.

Sarah Gatliff the daughter of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. who was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Employees on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Candidate

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos who is a Candidate for Re-Election refuses to provide the AXON LOG RECORDS which are bought and paid for by the Public to the Public. To this day Sheriff Bolanos has refused to tell the Public Who Fired First, and Who moved the Three Shell Casings? A reasonable person would call that Evidence Tampering.
