Yesterday July 20, 2020, 21 months after Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Killed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi on El Camino Real in Millbrae/San Bruno The Supervisors discussed in Closed Session the progress of the two Civil Lawsuits that the relatives have brought against San Mateo County and a long list of Employees who were involved in the Misinformation aka Lying to the Residents of SMC about what actually occurred on October 3, 2018.
This happens every time Law Enforcement in San Mateo County kills a man or woman. The San Mateo County Media, San Mateo County Counsel, and San Mateo County Supervisors join in the character assassination of the DECEASED.
In Chinedu’s case everyone knows by now that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has No Plan in place on how to make a Pedestrian Stop. Thats right Chinedu Okobi was simply walking down the sidewalk while Black when Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang spotted him while he was traveling northbound in his patrol car. He activated his lights which activated his dashboard video camera which shows him making a U-turn.
Within 8 minutes Chinedu was Tased 7 times, struck with extended baton, Dogpiled by SIX SMC Employees and sprayed with O.C. spray in the face at close range while being handcuffed where he died. From that moment on San Mateo County started to promote the false story of “He was breathing and had a pulse when the Sheriff’s Office Employees turn him over to the AMR people.”
Nothing could be further from the Truth.
There is NO EVIDENCE that any of the Six Employees checked Chinedu Okobi’s pulse or provided ANY Life Saving measures after he was handcuffed and approximately 9:30 minutes passed before ARM people touched him.
How much Taxpayer Money has SMC Supervisors approved for this legal action? How much have they spent to date?
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.
As a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 21 years. This 12 page Defendants Reply below by San Mateo County’s Finest is why I recommend whenever asked by a loved one or family member who has just lost a relative to a Homicide by San Mateo County Law Enforcement. First I say I am Not an attorney, then I say before you do anything else start interviewing a Law Firm to represent you. Don’t wait to grieve take this action first, then start crying and asking all the normal questions.
Missing from this filing is San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Why? He and the San Mateo Counsel are responsible for refusing to provide the Public with the AXON LOG RECORDS in the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide in Half Moon Bay May 5, 2020. Also missing is San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy, he was called twice from the crime scene that night for some reason. I’ve never seen that before.
It is because of this exact type of misbehavior by Government that HMB Council Members Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay is on the agenda for the June 15, 2021 meeting by ZOOM. No other Elected Officials in all of San Mateo County have stood up to protect the Residents of their community like these two are doing right this minute.
Update: Next Court Dates are July 21, 2021 @ 1:30 PM and September 21, 2021 @ 9:00 AM
If you would like to listen you can call 1-206-279-9589 Code 599028 at 1:30 PM.
You may recall Barbara Bonilla was much more than just the Execute Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League when she was escorted out of her Office on February 10, 2020.
She was the Campaign Manager for Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. She also worked at Redwood City Police Department for Carlos G. Bolanos when he was the Police Chief there.
She was a:
San Mateo County Sheriff Employee
San Mateo County Parks & Recreation Committee, Commissioner
Redwood City Rotary Member
California PAL and National PAL Board Member.
How is the SMC Sheriff Activities League a 501 C?
What Has the SMC Sheriff Activities League done to make sure this NEVER happens again, since the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation by the State of California Attorney General and the San Mateo County Sheriff Office, which any reasonable person would know was an obvious Conflict of Interest.
Here is a short list of who knew about the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation.
Bill Nicolet, Assistant Sheriff Gregory Rothaus, Coastside Lutheran Church, Correctional Medical Group, Dani Gasparini & Alyn Beals, David Amann, Donald Hack, Greg Munks, Henry Gaw, Jeff Ira, Kiwoba Allaire, Lori & Eric Lochtefeld, Jim Hartnett & Rosanne Foust, Assistant Sheriff John Munsey, Maloney & Associates, Marshall Realty, Jonathan Shipman, Neil & Kate Layton,Pete Liebengood & Alicia Aguirre, Phillip Raiser, Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Steve Wagstaffe, Trisha Sanchez, Warren Slocum, Don Horsley. Adam Alberti.
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.
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?
Here is just one simple example of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issuing a False Statement to the Public.
“His identification was unknown until January 2021.” That is a flat out lie. In 2014 he was served by the San Mateo County Sheriff Office at the exact address he was arrested. He was served a Restraining Order from one of his Brave victims.
Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lie about this. The idea that the SMCSO is investigating the rape of multiple children as young as 13 years old for NINE years is NUTS.
He’s talking about El Granada resident Kaylan Charles Freeman.
Since May 2012, Sheriff’s Office detectives have been investigating a case involving a suspect who sexually assaulted multiple underaged girls. His identification was unknown until January 2021 when detectives received a break in the case from a witness who identified the suspect as 30-year-old Kaylan Freeman from the San Mateo County Coast. Freeman is responsible for multiple acts of forcible rape and various sexual assaults against the victims who were minors at that time.
On January 28, 2021, Kaylan Freeman was arrested by detectives in his residence in unincorporated San Mateo County coast side. Detectives believe that there are more victims who have yet to come forward and are encouraging anyone who has information about the suspect, please contact Detective Currie 650-363-4051 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Detective Piper 650-363-4062 or email email@example.com
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?

SALINAS — The Monterey County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote Tuesday on whether to censure Sheriff Steve Bernal for allowing inappropriate expenditures of county funds in 2019.
The expenditures occurred when the County Sheriff’s Office hosted the California State Sheriff’s Association annual convention in 2019 according to an investigation by the County District Attorney’s Office. Although the investigation determined that no criminal charges should be filed, some Supervisors expressed concern over the matter.
“I pushed for transparency of this report because the public has a right to know how their taxpayer dollars were blatantly misused,” Supervisor Luis Alejo tweeted in reaction to a story by the Monterey County Weekly.
The Board of Supervisors meet Tuesday at 9 a.m. The meeting is open to the public but because of COVID-19 regulations, it is recommended the public attend virtually through the zoom video platform at https://montereycty.zoom.us/j/224397747. The meeting can also be seen via live streaming on Facebook and YouTube. For more options visit https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. was a large well educated Black Man walking on the sidewalk southbound on El Camino Real in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Anne Oliva was a Millbrae City council member that day, and has been Silent all this time. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Bolanos said he was. He did Not Immediately assault Sheriff Deputy Wang after exiting his patrol vehicle like Sheriff Bolanos said he was.
Chinedu V. Okobi was San Mateo County’s George Floyd.
How can anybody support Law Enforcement in San Mateo County that Lies to the Public? Ask Anne Oliva
It’s not surprising that San Mateo County Community Leaders support this Dishonest behavior. The question is Why?
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
