Charles Stone Endorsements

By Michael G. Stogner

Charles Stone and his endorsers

Why were both Sheriff Munks and UnderSheriff Bolanos out of the County at the same time?

I have not heard Charles Stone or one of his endorsers demand an Investigation of the April 21, 2007 FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse where now San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was Caught and Detained Inside a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada at 9:30 PM. Las Vegas Metro Police Spokesperson Bill Cassell and Lt. Karen Hughes of VICE both made official statements putting Bolanos INSIDE. That’s why he was handcuffed and put in a lineup outside the house.

By the way the house had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Minor inside. To this day Carlos G. Bolanos has lied about being Inside, Why? Sheriff Greg Munks admitted he was inside, but lied about Carlos, Why? He did say that both of them did Not intend to Pay for Sex. What does that mean? Is it possible they were both inside the house for a Drug Deal? Of course it’s possible anything is possible when they both refuse to answer the most basic questions like, Why were you there?

I have not heard Charles Stone or one of his endorsers make a comment about Yanira Serrano Garcia, of Half Moon Bay who was shot and killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him existing his patrol vehicle. Why did the Deputy go by himself to a non emergency medical call, He tampered with evidence and made false statements in his report.

I have not heard Charles Stone or one of his endorsers make a comment about the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office passing Pornography and a VIOLENT RAPE VIDEO among 45 male Sheriff Employees in 2009.

“Munks and his Crew just froze” article

A great question for any Candidate or Elected Official in San Mateo County is, What did you do about this?

I have not heard Charles Stone or one of his endorsers say Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd.

I have not heard Charles Stone or one of his endorsers, call for the release of the AXON LOG RECORDS in the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by 2 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. Sheriff Bolanos and SMCC attorney David Silberman are the only two REFUSING to make them available to the Public.

I have not heard Charles Stone or one of his endorsers make any comment on the Roger Allen Homicide by Daly City Police Officers on April 7, 2021. The official statement by City Manager Shawanna Maltie was the 4 Officers arrive at the disabled vehicle because “We are here to Help.” then they killed him.

I could go on and on, San Mateo County could use two new Supervisors this next election. Charles Stone is not one of them.

Jerry Hill and Sheriff Carlos Bolanos as endorsers of Charles Stone is all the Voters of SMC need to know.

Jerry Hill was in Las Vegas, Nevada, that same weekend of April 21, 2007, Operation Dollhouse, everybody knows that.

San Mateo County Government’s Big Lie.

By Michael G. Stogner

The County Government’s Big Lie started in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 21, 2007 at 9:30 PM when then Sheriff Greg Munks and Under-Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were both Caught and Detained INSIDE a private residence with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Minor, $25,000 cash and 3,500 ecstasy tablets. That LIE is still going strong 14 years later, if they would lie about this what else would they lie about? Errol Chang Homicide by Law Enforcement, Yanira Serrano Garcia Homicide by Sheriff Employee, Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by 6 Sheriff Employees, Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by 2 Sheriff Employees, the Kaylan Charles Freeman Criminal Case, and don’t forget the Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal case going for 7 years now. There are many more.

The real question is who were all of the Elected Officials and Appointed Department heads like County Manager, County Counsel and Staff in Government and the Media who were communicated with between April 21, 2007 9:30 PM and April 25, 2007 10:47 AM to create the False Official Story?

The Truth was out from the very beginning in this article published in the Palo Alto Online April 24, 2007 @ 2:48 PM. That’s 61 hours after Both Caught INSIDE. Isn’t that interesting an online news publication from a different county published the truth. How many of the 720,000 San Mateo County Residents read that article?

Bill Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences. That is very different than what Sheriff Greg Munks told the public at his press conference.

What would have happened if Sheriff Greg Munks and Under-Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos simply told the Truth? Why the Lie?

Sheriff detained in Las Vegas brothel raid

Uploaded: Tue, Apr 24, 2007, 2:48 pm
Time to read: about 2 minutes

San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks Tuesday afternoon apologized for his “lack of judgment” following his and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos’ brief detainment at a Las Vegas brothel Saturday night during a prostitution sting by local and federal authorities.

Munks, who was sworn in as sheriff of San Mateo County on Jan. 8, read a brief statement but declined to take questions.

“I believed I was going to a legitimate business,” Munks said. “It was not,” he said.

Munks said he and Bolanos had been in Las Vegas over the weekend to participate in a law enforcement run, the Baker to Vegas Relay.

During a series of raids Saturday night and early Sunday dubbed “Operation Dollhouse,” Munks and Bolanos were detained but were not among the six people — five men and one woman — arrested by police at a brothel about two miles west of Las Vegas strip, Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell said this afternoon.

The arrests at the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found took place at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Cassell said. Approximately 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 in cash was seized at the brothel, Cassell added.

Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences at the brothel. “All of the customers were simply identified and released,” Cassell said.

“I want to apologize to my family, the sheriff’s office and its fine men and women, and to the people of San Mateo County for my lack of judgment and the undue attention and embarrassment this incident has caused,” Munks stated.

Munks said that he and Bolanos fully cooperated with the investigation, though he noted that Bolanos “was outside when the authorities arrived.”

“I would not, nor did I, break any laws,” Munks said. “Neither did the Undersheriff.”

Cassell stressed that Munks and Bolanos “received no special treatment because of their status in law enforcement.”

No charges have been filed against Munks or Bolanos.

Cassell declined to specify the exact location of the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found, but said it is located two miles west of the strip in a mixed residential and light-industrial area in the south-central part of the city, according to Cassell.

The raid was part of a series of raids at nine Las Vegas brothels Saturday night and early Sunday morning, according to Cassell.

The operation capped a two-year investigation conducted by Las Vegas police, the FBI, the IRS criminal investigation division and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau, Cassell said.

Over the weekend, a total of seven people were arrested on prostitution and drug-related charges and 25 prostitutes were taken into custody, Cassell said. An ongoing investigation will attempt to determine whether any of those arrested were involved in illegal human trafficking, he added.

According to Cassell, additional suspects are still being sought by authorities on federal prostitution charges.

Here is the example of just 4 of San Mateo County Government Officials communicating with each other within 61 hours of The Sheriff and Under-Sheriff being Caught and Detained INSIDE.

That is San Mateo County’s TOP 4 in Law Enforcement. All four have sworn an Oath to protect the Public.

How many times since April 21, 2007 has now elected Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied about being outside the residence as if that mattered to the Public, How many times?

Chinedu V. Okobi, SMC’s George Floyd.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

Sunday, October 3rd at 2:00 pm, Chinedu Okobi Remembrance Rally led by the San Mateo NAACP, Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, Island United Church, Justice For Chinedu, the families of victims who died at the hands of law enforcement, community leaders and members. 

Tomorrow 2PM-3:30PM

Location: 400 County Center Building, Redwood City, California.

San Mateo County Residents don’t know very much about Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide, and that is exactly what the Government wants. When I say government I’m also including the Media/Newspapers.

Chinedu Valentine Okobi, is San Mateo County’s George Floyd, the difference is the world saw George Floyd Murdered because of a very brave 17 year old girl who videoed it and placed it on the internet before Law Enforcement, Elected Officials could get there hands on it. That is what happened in San Mateo County.

First lets start at the Top with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He is a LIAR, that is NO SECRET.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Omits Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales name. He was Very Involved.

Chinedu V. Okobi was not running in and out of traffic, before Deputy Wang targeted him. Chinedu did NOT immediately assault Deputy Wang. Chinedu died on El Camino Real in San Bruno/Millbrae. The Six Sheriff Employees did not provide ANY life saving Measures for 9 minutes after they killed him.

Chinedu Valentine Okobi, was a 36 year old Father, Son, Brother, Moorehouse College Graduate, who was simply walking on the sidewalk on a sunny afternoon in Millbrae, when SMC Sheriff Deputy Wang got attracted to him.

I will be joining this group of very good humans tomorrow. I remember when I first met them at a Board of Supervisor Meeting, I thought to myself, These are my People.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activity League, and Captain Christina Corpus.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus

“SAL has Never been audited.” “We can not account for $232,084.51”

Jeffrey C. Kearnan e-mail
“Per Gigi SAL has never been audited”
We can not account for $232,084.51

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe recused himself and his entire office from the Embezzlement & Money Laundering criminal investigation involving just one individual. That was the right thing to do.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Captain Christina Corpus, chose to ignore the Obvious Conflict of Interest of the Sheriff’s Office investigating themselves. These two were not alone, there were many Sheriff employees involved in the Investigation of SAL.

A reasonable person would ask How is that possible? You will have to ask Carlos & Christina they are 2 of the 3 candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff in the next election just 9 months away.

Every person on SAL Board of Directors would know that the Sheriff’s Office should NOT Investigate itself.

SAL Board of Directors

The State of California Attorney Generals Office not only knew about the obvious conflict of interest, they warned the Sheriff’s Office about it, in an e-mail.

2) That the assigned Detective and Agent avoid regular meetings for the purpose of updating everyone in this
email; as this would avoid possible conflict of interest concerns that could arise.

The Attorney General of the State of California Rob Bonta, through his prosecutor Emily Dahlke approved and offered a plea deal to the only person charged with any crimes in the entire Embezzlement and Money Laundering case involving the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. That case is now closed, and that case only involved $13,706.35 in restitution.

A reasonable person would ask, what about the others involved? Did they ever find the missing $232,084.51?

Mark D. Melville for SMC Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.

Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.

Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.

Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.

I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.

I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.

One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff Office.”

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office” p.2

If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.

Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.

SAL Board of Directors

Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.

Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.

Thank You, A.G. Rob Bonta

By Michael G. Stogner

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.”

Melville, Corpus and Bolanos for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Now there are three individuals who have stated their intention to run for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

Mark Melville ran against Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018 and received 52,996 total votes. He has always said he will be running in 2022.

SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus has now announced her intention.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraiser in Millbrae last month.

Now if San Mateo County Residents can find a candidate to run for District Attorney against Steve Wagstaffe that would be a step in the right direction.

City of Half Moon Bay Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting June 24th.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is the City response after tabling the Jimenez-Rarback Report last week. Three of the council members want more discussion from the public, more listening sessions. They don’t think 7 years since Yanira Serrano Garcia’s Homicide by a sole San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy with No Plan on how to handle the Non Emergency Medical 911 call by her brother Tony Serrano is enough to take corrective action. Of course it is.

The Jimenez-Harback Report called for the creation of a Chief of Police for Half Moon Bay. A position with authority that answers to the City council. That seems like a strange request since Half Moon Bay has Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez who has attended many recent Zoom meetings he is identified as the Chief of Police of Services.

Joaquin Jimenez and Harvey Rarback have discovered what many in San Mateo County Government have known for a long time. The city has absolutely No say in how Sherif Carlos G. Bolanos provides Law Enforcement/Public Safety Services.

The Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 is a perfect example. Sheriff Bolanos told the world there was a Shootout and Ms. Harmon fired first at Deputy Dominguez. Of course if that Official Statement were true nobody would blame Deputy Dominguez for returning fire causing the death of Ms. Harmon. He told his Sergeant he fired 5-6 rounds. He actually fired 11 rounds, He failed to mention he fired at her first, and also while she was unarmed with her hands above her head and her back towards him. Ms. Harmon was shot three times in the back all Fatal. He also failed to mention he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera.

The AXON LOG RECORDS keep a precise record of all devices involved in a Critical Incident, example when they were turned on/off.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman are the lead opposition for making the AXON LOG RECORDS Public.

Those Records would prove the Government’s Official Statement to be true, Why won’t they release them?

The City of Half Moon Bay has requested those records and have been denied.

The Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting is set for June 24, 2021 5:00 P.M. at the Library

I recommend Half Moon Bay Invite Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Rachel A. Quintana and Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte to attend a future meeting.

San Mateo County News.com was the first News Media to write about Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave from Sheriff Activities League Headquarters in Redwood City.

February 28, 2020 Article

How is that possible? With all those people who had knowledge about Barbara Bonilla, that Not One of the SEVEN Print Media in San Mateo County wrote an article about it in January or February?

The California State Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting Barbara Bonilla, What have you heard from them about this case? How did they come up with these charges? Is Barbara Bonilla really the only person involved?
