FPPC, “You don’t want to be investigating your own agency.” and they Didn’t.

By Michael G. Stogner

FPPC Commissioner Catherine Baker

Thank You, to the Los Angeles Times for following up on the complaint of Commissioner Catherine Baker. I think it’s fair to say that inquiry caused the Attorney Generals Office to get involved. Time for an AUDIT of the FPPC complaints. The FPPC had the complaint for 7 months and Never Investigated it.

The Complaint was filed in April 29, 2021 with FPPC Enforcement Division.
LATIMES November 12, 2021 Requested information about the Investigation.
November 12, 2021 FPDC Enforcement Division recused itself.

Watchdog complaint hidden for months

SACRAMENTO — A campaign finance investigation against a top official at California’s political watchdog agency sat in limbo and hidden from public view for months, raising questions about whether the government organization holds its own members to the same standard as candidates and campaigns across the state.
The complaint against Catharine Baker, a member of the California Fair Political Practices Commission and former Republican legislator, was filed in April with the agency’s enforcement division. On Nov. 12 — the same day The Times requested information regarding the case — the FPPC enforcement division recused itself from the investigation and asked state Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta to assume control.
“I’m very surprised by this,” said Bob Stern, former FPPC general counsel. “The question then becomes, what other cases are they not disclosing? Is this one bad example or typical of how they are operating?”
Commission Chairman Richard Miadich said he instructed staff members months ago to move the case to the attorney general and provided a copy of an email dated April 29 confirming that directive. But he said he didn’t know why the transfer of the case didn’t happen until just a few days ago.
“We have never had a situation where a sitting commissioner has had a complaint filed against them,” Miadich said Monday. “We needed some time to do our homework.”
A statement from Bonta’s office confirmed receipt of the documents but offered no other details.
Baker was appointed to the commission in December, one of five members who oversee the implementation and enforcement of California campaign finance laws. She served in the state Assembly from 2014 to 2018 representing portions of the eastern Bay Area and disputes the allegations contained in the anonymous complaint, submitted through the FPPC’s online system in April.
“The anonymous complaint is incorrect, both on the facts and on the law,” Baker said in a phone interview.
At issue is whether she failed to properly file paperwork related to a possible 2030 campaign for the Assembly and whether additional disclosure of donors was required when transferring $125,000 in leftover funds from her 2018 campaign committee to an account for a possible future campaign.
“Our filings were complete and accurate and filed on time with the advice of legal counsel to ensure full compliance,” she said.
Complaints made against political candidates and campaigns are reviewed by the state commission’s enforcement staff. If an investigation is launched, FPPC officials inform the parties in question and disclose the inquiry in an online system the public can access.
But after the staff examination into Baker’s activity began, the information was not displayed in the online database. Miadich told The Times that the agency’s “transparency portal” is designed to provide information on cases under the commission’s jurisdiction and that, in this case, the information being gathered by FPPC staff members didn’t fall under that category.
“At no point were we actively investigating this complaint,” he said.
On Nov. 12, The Times asked the commission’s press office whether an investigation into Baker was underway and, if so, the status of the inquiry. That same day, Chief Enforcement Officer Angela Brereton sent a letter to Bonta asking his department to take over the case.
“Because Commissioner Baker is currently in office, the Commission is recusing itself from this matter,” Brereton wrote, also noting that FPPC staff members “have not made any determination” on whether Baker had violated state campaign finance regulations.
Miadich said Monday that Brereton could have made clear that plans to transfer the case had been in the works for some time.
“I think it would have been helpful for her to contextualize that letter,” he said.
Stern, a co-author of California’s landmark Political Reform Act, said that the commission’s actions could be perceived to some as giving Baker special consideration and that FPPC investigators should have quickly handed the case over to Bonta.
“It’s all appearances,” he said. “You don’t want to be investigating your own agency, particularly commissioners.”

HMB Resident doing what City Manager Bob Nesbit and Matthew Chidester Refused to do. Sue the County.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

The Lawsuit by the Resident.

Shawnna Maltbie Please explain.

By Michael G. Stogner

Shawnna Maltbie

Shawnna Maltbie is the City Manager of Daly City, California Her Police Department released this press release on April 7, 2021 the day Roger Allen was shot and killed by DCPD Cameron Newton. Cameron Newton fired TWO Shots at close range into the vehicle striking Roger Allen once with a fatal shot. The official Press release states only one shot was fired, WHY?

This is not that difficult, You collect the weapons and count the bullets.

Now when you know that the first Daly City Official Press Release is a lie, the foundation for the investigation has been set. I have not seen Shawnna Maltbie demanding an explanation? Same is true for all Council Members.

Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie Look how it’s done. S.F. Police Chief Apologizes

My Michael G. Stogner

City of Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie

City of Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie has kept a tight lid on any and all information regarding the April 7, 2021 Homicide of Roger Allen R.I.P. by somebody from her Police Department. Here is what we know for sure Roger Allen is dead, that’s about it. We don’t know who shot him or why 4 DCPD Officers were at a disabled truck with a flat time in the first place.

Who’s gun fired shots? See how simple this is? An examination of the officer’s gun showed that a single round was fired.

Why would Daly City Elected Officials and Staff go the opposite way of America in 2021. I would guess it’s simple Math. They are betting this will settle with a payment of Taxpayer money and Never get to a Jury trial. That way a NDA will be signed and No more information will be made public then we know today.

Jeff Regan has it right: Why do voters put up with this? You can’t recall a city manager, but you can recall a city council.

Jeff ReganMay 11, 2021 at 8:34 amEdit

Public comment about any subject should be at the beginning of city council meetings. Then, public comment for each agendized item. Daly City not having body and dash cameras, their lack of transparency regarding a police homicide and making residents wait several hours for public comment are done intentionally to thwart democracy and the rights of the citizens who pay the salaries of city staff, and police department personnel. Where is the council oversight? Why do voters put up with this? You can’t recall a city manager, but you can recall a city council.

Just north of Daly City, San Francisco Police shot a man on May 7, 2021, He wasn’t killed but here is what happened the Police Chief Identified the Officer who shot him and he Apologized to the public.

By Lila Seidman and Richard Winton
San Francisco Police Chief William “Bill” Scott has offered a rare public apology for an officer’s recent shooting of an unarmed car burglary suspect.
Xavier Pittman Jr., 23, was shot in the wrist by plainclothes Officer Zachary McAuliffe as he was being arrested May 7. Pittman is a suspect in a series of car burglaries.
He was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said. An examination of the officer’s gun showed that a single round was fired.
“The shooting of Mr. Pittman quite simply should not have happened,” Scott said during an online town hall on Thursday. “I’m deeply sorry that Mr. Pittman was shot during this incident, and I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Mr. Pittman, his family and his friends.”
Scott added a wider public apology, saying, “We know you expect us to get this right, and we know how traumatic it is to see these types of incidents — especially when they should not have happened.”
The chief said the shooting remains under investigation. He said plainclothes officers are exempt from wearing body cameras, but that video surveillance from a nearby business recorded the shooting.
The incident began when police received 911 calls that several suspects in a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross were breaking into vehicles all over the city, from Golden Gate Park to Fisherman’s Wharf.
Shortly after noon, U.S. Park Police spotted the Mitsubishi in the Presidio area of San Francisco and tried to stop it, but the vehicle sped away.
McAuliffe and a colleague found the vehicle and the suspects at Jack London Alley and Varney Place, police said. As some suspects fled in the Mitsubishi, the officers apprehended Pittman and the shot was fired.
Video footage shows two officers running in the alley toward Pittman with their guns drawn.
“Plainclothes officer No. 1 grabbed Mr. Pittman, and both fell to the ground,” a San Francisco police commander said during the town hall.
In the scuffle, he said, the officer’s handgun fired and struck Pittman “in the left wrist area.”
According to the video, one officer can be heard yelling: “Police Department! Police!” Immediately afterward, a gunshot is heard.
Pittman, who was unarmed, is heard saying he has been shot and requests an ambulance.
McAuliffe “did not intend for his firearm to go off,” his attorney Mike Hinckley said. “He sincerely apologizes to Mr. Pitman and wishes him a full speedy recovery.”
Pittman’s attorney, Adante Pointer, said it is “unclear whether it was an accidental discharge or intentional, as the video is not terribly clear.”
He said his client did not do anything to warrant deadly force being used against him. He said the officer was acting recklessly.
“For safety reasons, officers are trained not to have their gun in hand when they go hands on with a person in order to prevent this very thing or something worse from happening,” he said. “This could have easily been a fatal shooting of my client or of another person in the vicinity.”
The Police Department has yet to determine whether the gunshot was intended. The San Francisco district attorney will decide whether the officer involved will face criminal charges.
Pittman was arrested on suspicion of second-degree car burglary, conspiracy, possession of stolen property and committing a felony while on release.
Police said the other suspects remain at large. The Mitsubishi was found abandoned in Oakland. Investigators also recovered a large amount of stolen property from the auto burglaries.

When San Mateo County Government is the Enemy.

By Michael G. Stogner

By the time I had received these documents 11 years ago, I had already arrested a prominent Attorney on the 7th floor of the Courthouse and turned him over to the San Mateo County Sheriff Office April 3, 2002 9:05 AM, Don Horsley was Sheriff and Greg Munks was the UnderSheriff at that time. In March of 2007 I had personally requested Sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos to resign for being caught and detained by the FBI inside a single family residence that had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor inside. The house was located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada. The FBI Sting was named Operation Dollhouse. The date was April 21, 2007. I’ve served as a jury foreperson in San Mateo County where the District Attorney’s Office Falsely charged a Marine with a crime they knew there was No Evidence that he committed such a crime. What would allow the D.A. to do such a thing? It’s simple San Mateo County Residents don’t know about it the Newspapers don’t think that is Newsworthy. Even if they did know and they were outraged, What could they do about it.

Eliminating Corruption in San Mateo County should be pretty simple right? “See Something say Something” That is the Government’s Message. Say something to Who? Then what happens?

What happens when SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Lies? Currently Nothing.

What happens when District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Lies? Currently Nothing

What happens when the Sheriff PIO issues a False Press/News Release? 10/03/208 Currently Nothing

What happens when SMCSO Sgt. Irfan Zaidi filed a false police report dated 10/22/2018 in the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide? Currently Nothing.

What happens when SMCSO Sgt Michael Otte committed Perjury in Rachel Amanda Quintana of HMB criminal case in front of Judge Lisa Novak? Bolanos let him Retire. Did the City Managers and City Council know what he did? Were they informed by the Chief, Sheriff Bolanos, SMCCC Attorney David Silberman, Judge Lisa Novak? They all knew he committed a crime.

What happens when the District Attorney’s Office uses its power and authority as a Weapon, Destroy somebody Financially, Emotionally or even causing Death. X Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case is in court on May 11, 2021 He was arrested in 2014 remember Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to and inmate. Those charges were False, what happens….Nothing that’s 6.5 years of not being able to be employed plus cost to defend.

What happens when Barbara Bonilla Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Employee, his 2018 Political Campaign Manager was escorted out of her office as the Executive Director of SAL Sheriff Activities League. She was Investigated for Embezzlement and Money Laundering at SAL. Did any of the Elected Officials who knew say a word Nope. I was the first to report about it by 30 days. Why? Hint “Those Who Matter” She is being charged by the A.G. Office.

I recommend replacing all Elected Officials and Staff who are on the “Those Who Matter” TEAM with Good Human Beings. A Countywide Public Data base where anyone can report misconduct or criminal behavior by Those Who Matter.

Daly City’s recent Homicide by Police of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021 is a perfect example of City Manager Shawnna Maltbie failure. A perfect example of the Maltbie Family Government Management 101 I’m not surprised. Keep the public in the dark.

I have always recommended for Police Officers to be removed from Schools, and I have never supported children being involved with San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL). If you are a parent of a child or you know one please share this article with them and then at least they can make an informed decision regarding the risk vs. reward for their child being involved with SAL. Also any city council who is contributing to SAL stop ASAP until they get all questions answered.

For those of you who are wondering what did I do with this information. I provided it to a Supervisor of San Mateo County. My main concern was protecting the Female Deputy’s Identity and Career. I think a fair question to ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Supervisor Don Horsley is what happened besides the Sheriff Office replacing the Servers. Nothing

Hon. Judge Joseph Scott, Medical Emergency.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

Update Next Court Date: April 26, 2021 Time: 9:00 AM, We will see if Judge Scott will be the judge at that time.

Last Thursday April 1, 2021 retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s case was moved from Courtroom 2H to 2 G just 10 minutes before it was to be heard. Judge Leland Davis III informed everyone that Hon. Judge Joseph Scott would not be there based on a Medical Emergency. That in itself is a pretty big deal one that would be on the front page of every Newspaper in San Mateo County even if it didn’t have anything to do with Deputy Sheriff Juan P. Lopez 6.5 year criminal case.

Today at 2:00 PM 1-425-650-1381 Code 425463

I hope the Medical Emergency has passed and everyone is ok, I have no idea who had the M.E. and Judge Davis III did not go into any detail.

What was to be heard last Thursday was a Motion to Quash a Subpoena involving San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. Judge Scott had spent several hours getting up to speed on this issue.

For those who have been following the Deputy Juan P. Lopez story you will remember it began back in 2013 with SMCSO Lt. Armando, Sgt. Jason Peardon, and SMCDA Inspector Supervisor William Massey.

He was charged with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to Hells Angels Gang Member in Maguire Jail. Embezzlement of Campaign Funds ($400K). What ever happened to those very public charges?

Defense attorneys for Juan Lopez are Tony Serra and Maria Belyi of San Francisco.

HMB Resident Rachel A. Quintana did the right thing. SMCSO Sgt. Otte committed Perjury.

By Michael G. Stogner

In late 2015 Rachel Amanda Quintana did what most of us hope we would have the courage to do. She went to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sub Station in Half Moon Bay to file an official complaint about Sheriff Deputies abusive interactions involving her two brothers. She should get the Best Sister Award if there is such an award.

What she got instead was arrested at her home a couple of days later. The ARRESTING party was lead by Sergeant Michael E. Otte, and included Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney and Deputy Jose M. Velasquez. 66.66% of the arresting party lied and made false statements.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Kostielney filed A supplemental report after the arrest in which he stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.”

What he was declaring was that Sergeant Micheal E. Otte did NOT Video the Arrest with his personal Cellphone which in fact was a lie and he knew it.

It’s one thing to lie in an Official Police Report It’s a whole different ball game to lie under oath on the Witness Stand in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom which is exactly what Sergeant Michael E. Otte did on January 5, 2017. Who was aware of the Perjury committed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant in a Superior Court in San Mateo County. The list is long, I won’t bother listing all but at the top was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Her Bailiff who should be acknowledged for doing what we all expect of our law enforcement employees.

Hon. Judge Lisa Novak & Sgt. Michael Otte Perjury starts on Page 5

What happened to Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney?

We know what happened to Sergeant Michael E. Otte, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos gave him a Retirement Party.

Sgt. Michael E. Otte & Sheriff Bolanos

How many more Brave Citizens/Residents of Half Moon Bay came forward to report abusive behavior by the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. The City Council should have a data base available to the public to protect the public.

Rachel Amanda Quintana paid the price, years in the criminal justice system, with all charges to be dismissed quietly. Also a civil suit case number 19-cv-00060-CRB in United States District Court Northern District of California San Francisco Division.

When did Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or Captain Kristina Bell notify the City of Half Moon Bay of this Illegal conduct by it’s Law Enforcement Public Safety Officers?

Barbara Bonilla in Court Today.

12/21/2020 9:00 AM Courtroom 4B Arraignment 20SF013661A 

San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Michael Wendler

The main Question is What Happened to the Laundering Investigation?

Here are the current charges:

BONILLA, BARBARA

007PC487(a)-FEL-Grand Theft By Embezzlement487(a)Felony10/21/2019

On February 10, 2020 Barbara Bonilla was escorted from her office of Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL). The SAL is a division of the Sheriff’s Office. At that time Barbara Bonilla was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Barbra Bonilla is well connected and well known for her Fund Raising abilities. She was also Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for his 2018 run for Sheriff. April 2017 She donated $1,000 to his campaign. She was on the Boards of National PAL, California PAL, Redwood City Rotary, San Mateo County Parks and Rec Commission.

In May of 2020 she resigned from the Sheriff’s Office. Why? She was not charged with any crime and even if she was it doesn’t mean there is any evidence of a crime. The former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case is a prefect example of that. “Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in SMC Jail.” ZERO evidence to support those charges, they were dismissed.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe referred the Criminal Investigation to the State of California Attorney General because he was a member of the board of SAL. He wanted to avoid the Appearance of a Conflict of Interest. That is always a Good Idea when Public Trust is an issue.

San Mateo County Sheriff’Office should have done the same. Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and all Sheriff Employees think they should Investigate Barbara Bonilla at all. If Steve Wagstaffe couldn’t Investigate it for an Appearance of a Conflict of Interest certainly the Sheriff’s Office had more of a Conflict of Interest.

The A.G.’s Office and the Sheriff’s Office worked together in the Criminal Investigation of Embezzlement & Laundering. The DOJ had expected to have Barbara Bonilla Arrested as early as April 2, 2020, but that arrest did not occur. Why?

Laundering Money, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is Prepaid Gift Cash Cards you buy at many Stores. Did this element exist in the SAL Investigation? YES it did.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release December 4, 2020 Bonilla Arrest

The last sentence in the SMCSO News Release dated December 4, 2010 says: “this investigation is still underway and being handled by an outside agency.” It doesn’t identify that outside agency WHY?

When I asked SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe who’s Criminal Investigation was this he informed me it was the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

December 12, 2020

Good morning Michael,

It was charged by the Attorney General’s Office, so it would be described as a DOJ case.  I believe that is how it would be listed in statewide statistics, since I believe they list the prosecuting agency. But the investigating agency would be the Sheriff’s Office.

Thanks

Steve

At this moment it is still unclear Who the Investigative Agency was and is.

Normally I would attend the Court proceeding, Today I will not, there is a Pandemic. Stay Safe

Sandra L. Harmon, Andres Gaurdado both Shot in Back with Hands up.

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.

Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.

In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.

The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.

They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.

They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.

The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.

Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.

San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.

David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?

Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.

The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.

After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.

San Mateo Daily Journal Endorses Adam Eisen for HMB City Council.

By Michael G. Stogner

That is another reason to VOTE for Joaquin Jimenez.

You will recall the San Mateo Daily Journal Endorsed Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff in the 2018. They stated “We believe Sheriff Bolanos.” They went even further to promote a completely fabricated and unsubstantiated claim, “about Carlos G. Bolanos was outside the residence the entire time.”

Approximately 11 years ago, then undersheriff Carlos Bolanos was detained as part of an FBI investigation into a prostitution ring in Clark County, Nevada. Also detained was then sheriff Greg Munks. Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time.

I have asked Editor Jon Mays to provide me with the later reports he referenced above, he refused to do so. That is because there are no recent reports.

Here is what I know about Joaquin Jimenez, if he was a council member attending the September 15, 2020 HMB Special Meeting re: the Homicide of Sandra Harmon by San Mateo County Sherif Deputies. He would not have thought about having SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe come to another ZOOM meeting after hearing the Eblovi Investigation Presentation at the 27:30 mark about 8 minutes. It clearly demonstrated “TAMPERING of EVIDENCE, Three Shell Casings moved, Two Bullets holes never mentioned. FALSIFYING POLICE RECORDS, 3 FATAL SHOTS TO BACK. Sandra Harmon being shot at while unarmed etc.

The simple fact that Steve Wagstaffe stated at 50:48 mark.

“We did find 11 casings they mention 3 others. We took their guns right from the beginning.” “In there 11 rounds had been fired and we found 11 casings.”

“I think that confirms where we were.”

“That is the answer to that.”

The reality is 14 Spent Shell Casings NOT 11 were recovered from the Crime Scene, May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay that night. HMB Mayor Adam Eisen knew that. Why would he allow the District Attorney to make such a patently FALSE statement to the Council and public?

HMBCC Special Meeting 9/15/2020

This is just One Reason San Mateo County News.com is Endorsing Joaquin Jimenez for Half Moon Bay City Council 2020.

A Vote for Joaquin Jimenez is not just good for the City of Half Moon Bay its good for the Residents of San Mateo County.
