Sarah Gatliff, daughter of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. in court today 1:00 PM ZOOM

By Michael G. Stogner

You will recall Sandra Lee Harmon was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. San Mateo County Government never came out and informed the public that the SMC Employees shot at her while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. They also failed to mention she was shot in the back while unarmed.

Sarah the daughter is in court today on ZOOM at 1:00PM

ABC News Dan Noyes, uncovers $10M PPE left outside unprotected by San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Excellent reporting by Dan Noyes, How many San Mateo County Officials and Employees knew about this and did nothing about it. Hopefully some of it can be saved. How did Dan Noyes get access to walk around and video all of the damaged boxes. I’m glad he did, it demonstrates a lack or Security by SMC. Also a big Thank You to the person who reported this. This was not a Mistake.

SMC County Manager Mike Callagy

The County Manager’s Office is responsible for the efficient day-to-day operations of San Mateo County’s government and carries out the vision and policies set by the Board of Supervisors.

Here is Dan Noyes Report and Video.

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 Carlos G. Bolanos on Oath Keepers data base.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Yesterday I wrote an article about San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that was sourced to Investigative Reporter Ali Winston awinston@twitter. I received a message from a reader that the article was not available, I checked my website and sure enough, not only was it not available there was no record of it from yesterday and how many people have read it. It simply vanished. So here it is again.

Here is what she said: You think it’s bad in New York City? Well also included in the alleged Oath Keeper Data is Carlos G. Bolanos. Carlos G. Bolanos. of San Mateo County, California.

Listing is attached to his government issued e-mail.

Don’t forget Carlos G. Bolanos was illegally appointed to Sheriff by the Gang of Three on July 12, 2016. No surprises here.

San Mateo County How many Good Humans would it take?

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

How many of these CLOSED SESSION MEETINGS could a Good Human tolerate. I say ZERO.

A Good Human would say “I have taken an Oath.” I can’t sit through another one of these B.S. Meetings.

How many of these meetings has Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine, John Beiers, David Silberman attended?

7/14/2021Departments:CLOSED SESSION 
On agenda:7/20/2021Final action:
Title:Conference with Legal Counsel – Existing Litigation: C.M.O., a minor, by and through her Guardian ad Litem Mi’Trease Johnson v. County of San Mateo, et al. United States District Court -Northern-Case No. 3:19-cv-02992-JCS Consolidated with: Maureen Okobi v. County of San Mateo, et al United States District Court -Northern-Case No. 3:19-cv-03002 Conference with Legal Counsel 

The reason I’m asking is this, every one of the above mentioned people knew or should have known shortly after October 3, 2018 at 1:30PM that Unarmed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. After he was tased 7 times, struck with extended Baton, Dog Piled by all six employees, sprayed in face at close range with O.C. spray, Handcuffed, spoke his last word and was sat up on El Camino Real, Millbrae/San Bruno and was not offered ANY medical Life Saving measures for the next 9 minutes by any of the SIX SMC Employees. Does that sound familiar. It didn’t take long for the Government conspiracy to be formed. “He was breathing and had a pulse while in the Sheriff’s Custody” The simple truth is that is a LIE. All of the above named people Know that or should know that.

It has been 2 years and 9 months since the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six SMCSO Employees. What was Maureen Okobi mother of Chinedu and Mi’Trease Johnson mother of Chinedu’s daughter asking for San Mateo County in order to settle this on the very first CLOSED SESSION MEETING?

San Mateo County just agreed to pay $11.4M for a Whistleblower case where nobody was KILLED.

San Mateo County get good humans in the elected positions. Settle these cases, and stop killing innocent civilians.

County board to vote on censuring sheriff

By MONTEREY HERALD | PUBLISHED: May 22, 2021 at 11:02 a.m. | UPDATED: May 22, 2021 at 2:49 p.m.

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 The meeting can also be seen via live streaming on Facebook and YouTube. For more options visit

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

Supervisor President David Canepa is Silent.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC Board of Supervisor’s President David Canepa

San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa is well known for his Interviews and Opinions in front to the television cameras. His opinions on the COVID-19 Pandemic have been like a Roller-Coaster up and down and all over the place.


  • Michael Stogner <>To:Dave Canepa,Bill Silverfarb,Dave Pine,Don Horsley,Carole Groom and 2 more… Sun, Jan 17 at 8:33 AM
  • Hello Dave,
    Can you tell me how many long term care residents have received the first and second doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine as of today?
    How many long term care residents does SMC have?
    Last weeks Burlingame’s Facility outbreak brought back memories for me personally, that is where my father spent the last days of his life.
    I think we can agree this population is the most likely to fill the Hospital ICU beds once they get COVID-19 and most likely to die.

  • Thank You, in advance for your response.
    Michael G. Stogner, San Mateo County

I will publish the answer as soon as I get it.

San Mateo County 2 ICU Beds and Staff.

By Michael G. Stogner

With all the media overload different topics for the residents to be inform about. I have always thought the ICU Beds and Trained Staff is one of the Most Important subjects to be concerned about. It is the best measurement of Safety and Capacity. It is not to be confused with the 88 surge beds which has always remained constant.

San Mateo County has 2 ICU Beds and Staff available that’s all for all eight Hospitals. That is a Big Deal and one of the Only topics the leadership of SMC should have been concerned about for the last 11 months.

It’s fair to say that COVID-19 is more dangerous today than it has ever been. All of the normal reasons to go to the Hospital remain the same, Heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, Domestic Violence, etc and only 2 ICU Beds and Trained Staff are available.

Last Tuesday I was one of the few Public Speakers on the Zoom meeting of the Board of Supervisors. I reminded them that the County had only 2 ICU Beds and Trained Staff available. That is Critical.

My recommendation for the County Leaders is to stop the Happy Talk, and make sure all the Hospitals have the proper amount of Trained Staff.

Everybody knew this was going to happen, No surprise.
