Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos couldn’t say Chinedu V. Okobi’s name.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd.

October 19, 2020 there was a Zoom Meeting that was hosted by two Councilmembers of the Town of Portola Valley.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was just one of the panelists.

Most of the panelists mentioned George Floyd’s name who I think any reasonable person who watched the video of him being murdered by a Police Officer would want that to stop. But most did not mention San Mateo County’s Chinedu V. Okobi who was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018 on El Camino Real, Millbrae/San Bruno.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos mentioned George Floyd Tragedy, not Homicide by police. He then mentioned “A Tragic Incident in Millbrae. Tasers ” No mention of Chinedu V. Okobi the 36 year old Father of a daughter, A Moorehouse Graduate, minding his own business simply walking while black on the sidewalk at 1PM in the afternoon. No 911 call, No Crime committed, No Guns, No Drugs etc. He was Tased 7 times, struct with extended baton, dogpiled by Six Sheriff Employees and finally sprayed in the face with O.C. Spray by the CSO Employee who was left out of the Sheriff’s and District Attorneys Press Release.

No mention of CSO Joesph Gonzales
Multiple False Statements
by Sheriff Carlos Bolanos

Sheriff Bolanos went on to say “I don’t believe that individual was killed by Taser.” That individuals name he is referring to is Chinedu V. Okobi, he can’t say it. He doesn’t mention the O.C. Spray to the face at close range after being tased 7 times, and dogpiled by Six.

Sheriff Bolanos went on to say that “AED’s are now in all Sheriff Patrol Vehicles.” I say so what, if you don’t use the AED what difference does it make how many you have. Sheriff Bolanos knows that his Six Employees didn’t provide any life saving measures for the next 8 minutes to Chinedu V. Okobi after he was handcuffed and sat up with his head slumped forward assuring his death. An AED was ONSCENE and not used.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe provided a highly edited and captioned video 5 months after the Homicide, which provides NO Evidence of Life Saving Measures being provided to Chinedu Okobi. When the EMT finally got to Okobi he was flatlined, they provided Chest compressions for another 8 minutes while he was handcuffed behind his back, they only took off handcuffs to put his dead body on the gurney. Sheriff Bolanos knows all of this.

Here is the Video you will notice no mention of the SIXTH Sheriff Employee. Remember “Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.”

Portola Valley Zoom Meeting tonight.

By Michael G. Stogner

What has changed since Yanira Serrano Garcia was Killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him getting out of his patrol vehicle. After he shot and killed her he was found with the knife in his hand. That is Tampering with Evidence. That was a non emergency medical call.

Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd

What has changed since Six not Five San Mateo County Sheriff Employees killed Chinedu V. Okobi, No 911 call, No crime had been committed by Okobi. What happened or didn’t happen during the nine minutes after Chinedu Okobi was handcuffed and sat up on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California was a crime. The video provided by SMCDA Office on March 1, 2019 had Captions “Check his pulse” etc the reality is his pulse was Never checked by the Six not Five Sheriff Employees.

What has changed since Sandra L. Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies May 5, 2020 on Main Street Half Moon Bay. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe told the public there was a Shootout and Sandra Harmon fired First. During the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020 at the 27:30 Mark the Eblovi Investigation Presentation about 9 minutes Identified 3 Spent Shell Casing and 2 Bullet holes. The three Shell casings were moved. The moving and relocating 3 shell casings and 2 Bullet holes were ignored by Wagstaffe, That is Tampering with Evidence, It also changes the Entire story that Sheriff Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe promoted.

The Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 to have The Attorney General of California to conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon, The Sheriff’s Office, and the District Attorney’s Office Investigation. That is what changed.

If Redwood City Council and Staff were serious about Police Reform.

By Michael G. Stogner

They would have already sent their individual e-mails to Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair supporting the September 15, 2020 Unanimous vote by the City of Half Moon Bay Council to refer the May 5, 2020 Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by Sheriff Deputies, requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorneys Investigation.

The Public is also welcome to e-mail Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020, The Eblovi Investigation Presentation at the 27:30 mark in video clearly identifies 3 Spent Shell Casings and 2 Bullet Holes that were omitted from SMC Sheriff, District Attorney Official Reports. The 3 Spent Shell Casings were then moved (Tampering with Evidence) to a location that supported the story provided to the Public by the Sheriff, District Attorney, and supported by County Counsel. There was a Shootout Ms. Harmon fired first both Deputies were fearful for their lives they knew she was going to kill them etc.

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020

Redwood City Leaders would have already made sure the their Police Department did NOT maintain two separate Arrests Logs which they have been aware of for many years.

RWC Police Logs 2 sets

They would also make sure their Police Department does NOT Violate San Mateo County’s Domestic Violence Protocol. Or their own for that matter.

SMCSO Lt. Kristina Bell 911 D.V. Call

James MaGee 17.5 hour D.V. Swat standoff

San Mateo County Residents should compare the James MaGee case with the Pacifica killing of Errol Chang by the Swat Team who got tired of waiting after a couple of hours. Errol was going nowhere he was located in a tiny home, he was a threat to nobody. Errol Chang R.I.P. was not a former Redwood City Police Officer, that is one big difference.

One thing everyone can do at this moment is contact the Attorney General’s Office and express your support for an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Death of Sandra L. Harmon, the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office for Criminal Conduct. Tampering with Evidence and request the AXON LOG RECORDS of the Entire Event. There were 14 Spent Shell Casings recovered NOT 11 that Steve Wagstaffe repeatedly discussed with the Public during the September 15, 2020 Zoom meeting above.

All San Mateo County Elected Official should have already sent their e-mails. E-mail Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair (Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov)

If they haven’t the residents should ask them, WHY?

Half Moon Bay asks A.G. to Conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation.

By Michael G. Stogner

That in it’s self is Historical for any City in San Mateo County, to Question Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Version of events in the Shooting Death a Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California.

September 28, 2020 Letter to The Honorable Xavier Becerra and Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair.

I’m just going to talk about Bullet Point 1 and 4

#1 The first deputy turned off his body camera in violation of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office policy.

The City was asked to Identify the Deputy so the public would know who the City was talking about. They chose not to.

Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe have told the world that Sheriff Deputy Dominguez turned off his Body Worn Camera BWC. To this day that is all that it is. The WORD of the Sheriff and District Attorney. There is NO EVIDENCE provided (AXON LOG RECORDS) to prove that statement to be TRUE. As a matter of Fact, the San Mateo County Counsel has done everything possible to make sure the AXON LOG RECORDS do not get released to the PUBLIC. Just ask John Ullom.

#4 Although the Deputies have said that they fired at Ms. Harmon form some distance away from her, certain pistol shell casing were found very near Ms. Harmon’s body. In addition there were inconsistencies in the location of casings recovered at the scene.

You wouldn’t know from reading Bullet point #4 that the subject was Tampering with Evidence at a Crime Scene. Specifically the moving of and placing 3 Pistol Shell Casings from one location to another.

This Tampering with Evidence at a Crime scene is kind of a Big Deal.

The 3 Pistol Shell Casings caused 2 Bullet Holes that was never mentioned in the Official reports. This alone changes the ENTIRE OFFICIAL REPORT.

Dear Ms. Joyce Blair of the Attorney General’s Office.

By Michael G. Stogner

I’m sure you don’t remember me, but I was the San Mateo County Resident/Citizen that reported the Criminal Conduct by Law Enforcement in the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case back in 2015. Specifically the Hacking of two Computer Systems one the State of California and the other the Federal USPS. You recommended I file it with San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe which I did. He of course couldn’t investigate it because of Conflict of Interest and sent it back to you. You did not investigate it.

I reported it to the Board of Supervisors at the Public meeting. They thanked me for my comment.

Video: BOS Meeting 2015

As you might be aware I have communicated with a few of your DOJ Investigators in the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activity League Embezzlement and Laundering Investigation involving former Sheriff Employee Barbara Bonilla who was the Executive Director of SAL. According to HMB Chief Saul Lopez that is still a Ongoing Investigation.

I will be forwarding you my personal request as a citizen to please conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon, Chinedu Okobi (San Mateo County’s George Floyd case) and Yanira Serrano Garcia cases. They are all Homicides by Law Enforcement of SMC Sheriff Office.

The similarities are Tampering with Evidence, False and Misleading Press Releases, Edited Videos with false and misleading Captions, Filing false Police Reports etc.
