San Mateo County should know who Sarah Gatliff is, Her mother Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. was shot at 14 times struck 8 times and struck 3 times all fatal in the Back with hollow point bullets. Sheriff Bolanos never told the public she was fired at and struck in the back while she was UNARMED.
Supervisor President David Canepa has No questions or concerns about that. He endorses Sheriff Bolanos for Re-Election.
Sarah is in court next week October 27, 2021 at 1PM access is listed below. SMC Attorneys say a daughter has to prove standing, good guys and gals.

Mark Simon recently wrote an article on the Sheriff’s Race and I thank him for mentioning retired Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville as one of the 3 Candidates for the 2022 election. Mr. Melville has always said he will be running for Sheriff in 2022. In the 2018 election he received 52,997 votes. The SMDJ didn’t endorse him in 2018 which is fine but the false statement they made about Carlos G. Bolanos being OUTSIDE the entire time was simply a flat out lie. They also failed to mention that Mark Melville called Sheriff Bolanos his boss at the time a LIAR. Why would they not inform their readers of that fact.
Here are just 2 sentences from Mr. Simon’s article full of misleading information.
Some of this is due, undoubtedly, to an infamous 2007 episode in which both Bolanos and Munks were present at a Las Vegas massage parlor when it was raided by law enforcement. Bolanos’ only comment has been to insist that he did nothing wrong, and, indeed, he was never arrested or detained by police.
I’m not sure being caught and detained inside a single family residence with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor would be considered an infamous episode.
Mark and Jon promote the false and misleading title that Carlos G. Bolanos created “Massage Parlor.” LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell identified it as an Illegal Brothel. Approximately 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 in cash was seized at the brothel.
indeed, he was never arrested or detained by police, Lets take the word arrested first, LVPMP Spokesperson Bill Cassell clearly stated “No clients, customers, johns, whatever you want to call them, were arrested,” That covers Bolanos.
Now lets take the word detained, LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell clearly stated “Neither Munks nor Bolanos was arrested, but they were questioned and released along with paying customers.”
If you were not detained you would not be released.
San Mateo County has a competitive Election for Sheriff 2022 and always has had that the public is just now hearing about Mark Melville. The third Candidate is Christina Corpus.
There are so many more Important Topic’s for the Next Sheriff of San Mateo County the AXON LOG RECORDS and Body Worn Camera Videos being released to the public within 24 hours UNEDITED for starters. Ask the Candidates their position on that topic.
San Mateo County can use your help, Please Investigate Tim Singer, Errol Chang, Yanira Serrano Garcia, Chinedu V. Okobi, Sandra Lee Harmon and Roger Allen Homicide cases just to name a few.
Note: I’m not suggesting Tim Singer was killed by Police, but the Investigation into his Homicide was done by San Mateo County Sheriff Office, It was not investigated as a Hate crime and look to the 2 Death Certificates cause of death.
“One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said.

Bonta forms special teams Attorney general opens field offices to investigate fatal police shootings across state. By Patrick McGreevy SACRAMENTO — The state Department of Justice has opened field offices throughout California to investigate police shootings that kill unarmed civilians and has told law enforcement agencies that they must notify the state whenever such incidents occur, Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta said Wednesday. The actions, including the opening of investigative offices in Los Angeles and Riverside, were in response to a new law that took effect July 1 requiring Bonta’s office to independently probe all fatal police shootings of unarmed civilians to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against officers. Bonta said he expected the two new teams, one for Northern California and one for Southern California, would investigate 40 to 50 fatal police shootings each year based on historic trends. “One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said. “Impartial, fair investigations and independent reviews of officer-involved shootings are one essential component for achieving that trust.” The attorney general said 27 special agents and six supervisory agents would make up the California Police Shooting Investigation Teams. The Northern California office is in Sacramento. Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), author of the new law, said he was concerned that the state Department of Justice had denied requests from some community leaders to undertake independent investigations of several high-profile police shootings. The state DOJ has traditionally deferred to county prosecutors, who have handled such cases after investigations by the law enforcement agencies involved. “Police shouldn’t police themselves, and the current system is fraught with conflicts of interest,” McCarty said during debate on the bill. He noted he had first proposed such legislation in 2015 and since then more than 800 people had been shot and killed by police in California. The measure, Assembly Bill 1506, was opposed by some law enforcement groups, including the California State Sheriffs’ Assn., which said it could result in duplicate state and local investigations and that the state DOJ lacked the resources and was not equipped to take on the new responsibilities. The measure “bypasses local investigatory processes, including established agreements to have outside agencies investigate officer-involved uses of force,” the association said in its opposition letter to lawmakers last year. On Wednesday, Cory Salzillo, the association’s legislative director, said in a statement: “The sheriffs continue to work closely with the attorney general and Department of Justice on the implementation of procedures for the authority described in AB 1506.” Under the law, the DOJ must investigate the fatal police shootings and submit a written report that states the facts of the case, its analysis, provides a conclusion on each issue raised by the shooting and recommends whether policies of the law enforcement agency should be changed. If the DOJ determines criminal charges are warranted, it would prosecute the officers. Bonta said his office would also continue to conduct “pattern and practice” investigations of law enforcement agencies if there appear to be problems beyond one incident. Those kinds of investigations, aimed at determining whether reforms should be pursued, are ongoing involving the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Vallejo Police Department. On Wednesday, Bonta formally launched the new investigative teams and released the guidelines and protocols his office would use in investigating fatal police shootings, saying his agency will make public its investigative findings, including explanations when a decision is made not to seek a criminal prosecution. Bonta said investigators would be deployed throughout the state with an emphasis on areas where there had historically been the most police shootings. The field offices will allow investigators to get to the scenes of shootings quickly, he said. The shooting investigation teams “will work in coordination with local responding agencies throughout the investigation of the officer-involved shooting, and members … will serve as concurrent, independent special agent investigators of these critical incidents,” the DOJ said in a statement. Once an investigation is completed, the case will be turned over to the DOJ’s Special Prosecutions Section within the Criminal Law Division for review. Administrative or civil investigations remain the responsibility of the law enforcement agency that employs the involved officers. Bonta was a state assemblyman before Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed him attorney general in March to fill a vacancy left by Xavier Becerra’s departure to become U.S. Health and Human Services secretary in the Biden administration. As a lawmaker, Bonta was a co-author of the legislation he is now implementing. He said during a news conference Wednesday that the investigations would not be easy but that he expected local law enforcement would cooperate. “I’m honestly not expecting a lot of pushback or tension or obstacles,” Bonta said. “We will be prepared for any that do arise.” Representatives of the LAPD did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the new state investigation teams. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will “enthusiastically work collaboratively” with the DOJ in investigating fatal shootings of unarmed civilians, said Capt. John Satterfield, adding that the “goal is to assist the DOJ in completing a comprehensive, fair and impartial joint investigation.” The state budget approved for the fiscal year that began July 1 includes $13 million to staff the investigation teams. The DOJ said before Bonta’s appointment that it would need $26 million to properly investigate the 40 deadly police shootings that the state averaged each year. He said Californians deserved an independent and transparent process for determining whether police officers acted properly when shooting unarmed civilians. He also said the issue was personal for him. “I’ve heard firsthand the hurt and the pain that too many families and communities feel in the moments after these incidents,” Bonta said. “I have witnessed the lack of trust that these investigations will be treated fairly by our criminal justice system.”
Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.
There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.
This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.
On May 28, 2021, the City Council received a report from resident David Eblovi entitled The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay. At its June 1, 2021, Council meeting, Council directed staff to agendize an item for the June 15, 2021 meeting to receive a presentation on the report.
Two guest speakers have been invited by Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback to discuss the Report and add their voices to the general conversation about public safety in Half Moon Bay. Dr. Greg Woods will focus comments on ethics and accountability in policing, and Sergeant Carl Tennenbaum SFPD (Ret.), will focus comments on the benefits of civilian responders to low-risk calls. Their bios have been provided to the Council under separate cover and are on file with the City Clerk.
At the beginning of the item, staff recommends that the mayor present protocols and an agenda for how the item will go including approximate times for various sections. The item will conclude with Council deliberation and direction.
Thank You Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez for getting this Important Conversation on the Agenda. It should have been on in 2014 when Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo Cpinty Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his patrol vehicle. He had ZERO Plan, He Tampered with the Evidence. That is exactly what happened at the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020, NO PLAN and Tampering with the Evidence.
Two Council Members are finally doing what every Elected Official in SMC should have been doing for years.
I recommended the City Council of Half Moon Bay file a lawsuit against Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman because they were the only two people refusing to release the Axon Log Records of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Law Enforcement Incident. I informed the council that Candidate for Sheriff 2022 Mark Melville said he would. They chose not to do that for some reason.
Re: Axon Log Records Question for Sheriff Candidate
Somebody has asked me, to ask you and I think you have already answered but this is a little different.
When you are elected Sheriff of San Mateo County will you release the Axon Log Records in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide right away.
Thank You Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com
The Axon Log Records would confirm or prove false the Story that the Government has told the public.
Why wouldn’t San Mateo County County Counsel Attorney David Silberman want that released?
The Official Story is very different from the Evidence. Several High Ranking Government Officials and Staff are involved in the False Story about the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide on May 5, 2020.
From the Civil Lawsuit: SMCDA Wagstaffe “The Axon Body Worn Camera Logs had NEVER been checked to see if Deputy Dominguez had actually turned the camera on because Deputy Dominguez had been taken at his word on this issue.”
A reasonable person would expect the Sheriff, District Attorney, and County Counsel Attorney to CHECK the Axon Log Records to confirm Deputy Dominguez was telling the truth.
I know for a fact that San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Rick Decker, asked a woman I was assisting, to take a Polygraph Test after she filed Felony Charges against her ex husband who was a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy. She agreed and passed with flying colors.
Nobody asked San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez to take a polygraph test when a woman with mental illness was shot in the back three times all fatal with hollow point bullets.
I found it interesting that the City of Half Moon Bay is being represented in the Civil Lawsuit by San Mateo County Counsel. The same Government Attorneys that are refusing to release the AXON LOG RECORDS. Sounds like a conflict of interest.
If you are a San Mateo County Resident and you believe the AXON LOG RECORDS should be made available to the Public, I recommend that you Vote Mark Melville for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.
I hope Attorney General Rob Bonta is paying attention to “Those Who Matter” in San Mateo County.
Tonight the City of Half Moon Bay Council voted 4 to 1 to place the Jimenez-Rarback Report on the June 15, 2021 Meeting Agenda. Harvey Rarback said this is a Beginning of a Conversation. Joaquin Jimenez spoke about safety for the residents of Half Moon Bay. He said it perfectly “if you even think about your safety you are not safe.”
Half Moon Bay is a City that is being forced by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office to discuss having a Police Chief or not.
This is a conversation that is taking place all across America, this is the right time for this. Now it is time for the public to get involved.
It should be noted: Mark Melville Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 has read the Jimenez-Rarback Report and has no objections to it. That means in 12 months the Residents of SMC can have a different Sheriff and that means Half Moon Bay will not need to create a new position of Police Chief.
The Jimenez-Rarback Report was put on the June 15, 2021 Meetings Agenda 4 yes 1 no vote,
This is a San Mateo County Issue not just a Half Moon Bay Issue. It’s rare when an Elected Official actually does the work on behalf of the residents, Here you have two Elected Officials doing what’s right for all of San Mateo County.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and even some Half Moon Bay Council members have said that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera when he exited his patrol car and went to the R.V. he expected Sandra Lee Harmon to be in. By the way he went to the R.V. by himself for some reason, He knew Sandra had a Shotgun and a bottle of wine and had mentioned a Race War. He went alone with BWC turned off is the Government’s Official Story. From the first time that story was presented to the public to this day that is exactly what it is a Story Words Spoken by the Top Government Officials. There has not been one piece of Evidence to support that Story.
Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is. Even if it is the Sheriff.
The Axon Log Records which are paid for by the Taxpayers will prove the statement from the Government Officials is True if it is and False if it is a Lie.
The Staff for the City of Half Moon Bay have demonstrated there complete lack of interest in getting to the truth of what happened the night Sandra L. Harmon was shot in the Back three times all Fatal.
2022 Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville has stated that he will release the AXON LOG RECORDS the first day he is sworn in. Now that makes a reasonable person wonder why Bolanos & Silberman are refusing to provide them and also why the City did not sue them to make them public.
This is exactly why I say Joaquin Jimenez should run for District 3 Supervisor of San Mateo County in the next election.
Of course the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies would pull HMB Councilman Joaquin Jimenez over on his bicycle on Main Street. It’s more than racial profiling, It’s sending him a message, you might be an Elected Official in San Mateo but I am in charge of the Law Enforcement in your Hometown 24/7 so get used to it.
Bolanos said the deputy recognized Jimenez as a city councilman, Of Course he recognized him.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knows that Joaquin is a threat to him, and is sending a message.
Every reasonable person in San Mateo County knows that Sheriff Bolanos is a Liar.
2007 Operation Dollhouse, He lied.
2010 Whistleblower complaint Gross Misconduct at SMCSO Porn and Violent Rape Video shared among top 45 Male employees. Results New Servers at the County.
2015 Pumpkin Festival SMCSO Gang Task Force assaulted Joaquin and threaten his career as a Juvenile Probation Officer with SMC. They followed through he no longer has that career.
He and other family members were stopped and photographed by Sheriff’s deputies during the 2015 Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival. At the time, then-Undersheriff Bolanos said the men were followed because some wore T-shirts that memorialized a gang member and that they were photographed because of what he said was a heated exchange between Jimenez and a security guard.
This is another example of Carlos Bolanos Lying, It was not a Security Guard, It was a Gang Task Force Sheriff Deputy.
2015 Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel A. Quintana arrested and Videoed by San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte, He Otte Lied under Oath in Judge Lisa Novak’s courtroom January 5, 2017. This arrested occurred right after she went to the Sheriff Sub Station to report harassment of her two brothers by Deputies. Judge Novak found Otte committed PERJURY Sheriff Bolanos gave him a retirement party.
2018 Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six SMCSO, Sheriff Bolanos omitted the sixth Employee Involved, CSO Joseph Gonzales, and lied in his Press Release about Chinedu running in and out of traffic and Immediately assaulting Deputy Wang when he exited his patrol vehicle.
2020 Half Moon Bay Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon by SMCSO Employees. Sheriff Bolanos Lied about the Shootout, Omitted the fact she was shot in the back three times, shot at while hands were above her head unarmed, and the moving of three spent shell casings, and two bullet holes located where there should be NONE. He provided the STORY of Body Worn Camera not being turned on and has refused to provide the Axon Log Records that would prove his statement to be true or false.
2021 Kaylan Freeman arrest and charged Rape of Girls, Sheriff Bolanos Lied in Press Release about when they first became aware of him. The Sheriff Office Served him a subpoena at the exact house in 2014 for the same type of crime.
“Racial profiling is happening,” Jimenez said. “Even when we ride our bicycles.”
“This is exactly what I’m talking about,” Jimenez said. “When people ask about coming forward, well, I’m coming forward. This is what happened to me. I was riding a bicycle like everyone does on Main Street. But I’m the one getting pulled over.”
Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbitt has had over a year to put in the Sheriff Officers Complaint Line that he claims he is so interested in providing to the residents. Bob Nesbitt is the Last Person on earth I would recommend to call with that type of complaint.
Carlos G. Bolanos is not only the Sheriff of San Mateo County he is also the Police Chief of Half Moon Bay.
When was the last bicycle stop conducted by SMCSO in Half Moon Bay?
Once again the City of Half Moon Bay Council Members are leading San Mateo County Elected Officials & Staff.
The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.
The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.
I asked Mark Melville Candidate for Sheriff 2022 for his opinion, here it is.
First and foremost, Mr. Jiminez is correct in that the public and Council need to meet and discuss what is in the best interest of all city residents, inclusive of public safety services. I read the proposed ordinance and find it appropriate. There is nothing in the ordinance that prevents the Sheriff’s Office from doing their job. The Council is looking for the betterment of how people are treated once they are in contact with law enforcement, nothing wrong with that. I’m not sure where the Sheriff is coming from when he says the ordinance wouldn’t improve public safety..? I think the ordinance is actually in favor of policing, in the way the City wants to see it done. In addition, I believe specific deputies should be assigned to the City for a long period of time. This would allow them to become part of the community and they would clearly understand the community’s expectations. In doing this, it would eliminate the Sheriff’s concern of having deputies working in different jurisdictions operating under different operating procedures.
The Sheriff’s statement, “It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract, it’s basically unenforceable,” which in my opinion is very condescending. The Sheriff is saying we are going to provide the service to the City the way we see fit, and there is nothing you can do about it, oh until the contract ends in 2022. In my opinion, the Sheriff should be at the forefront of drafting said ordinance with the city Council, because it’s for the betterment of the community..!! I’m wishing the City success in achieving the services they desire for their community.
Every City and Town that receives it’s Law Enforcement Services from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office should be on this ZOOM Meeting Tonight.
Does anybody really think it is a good idea to have children bonding with an Organization that is top heavy (45) men who share Porn and Violent Rape Videos on San Mateo County Computers at the Sheriff’s Office. I don’t
