Sitrick and Company hired by Zain Jaffer. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

How many Criminal defendants hire a P.R. Firm to promote the story they wish the world to hear.

Over the last 20 years I have attended many, many criminal cases and trials in San Mateo County, I know of only one case where the defendant hired a professional Crisis Management Public Relations Company to promote a fictional story. That case is the Zain Jaffer Criminal Case.

Some of you know I have recommended San Mateo County Residents Audit the Zainali Jaffer Case and the former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case. One start to finish less than 9 months and the other 6 years in the judicial system and still counting. What are the differences?

Sitrick and Company is one difference.

A Private Meeting with the District Attorney’s TEAM after a Preliminary Hearing is another difference. How many times does that happen? That meeting is where the SMC residents should focus, was it recorded? What was really communicated that afternoon, Think about that. What could possibly have been communicated during that meeting that caused many San Mateo County Employees to forget their Oath?

This is Terry Fahn & Stuart Pfeifer of Sitrick and Company’s Work July 23, 2018 which is 21 days after the Entire case was dismissed.

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Patrick Clancy, attorney for Zain Jaffer, co-founder and former CEO of video ad company Vungle, today thanked Stephen M. Wagstaffe, District Attorney for the County of San Mateo, for going out of his way to clarify that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any form of sexual misconduct.

“examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.”

Mr. Jaffer was arrested in October 2017 after an altercation with family members caused by a dangerous reaction to doctor-prescribed medication. In July, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office dismissed all charges against Mr. Jaffer, a move that could open the door to Mr. Jaffer’s return to Vungle.

In a new statement published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Mr. Wagstaffe said: “We do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

Mr. Clancy praised the District Attorney’s office for clarifying the facts and making it clear that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any sexual assault charge.

“Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual. He suffered an adverse reaction to medication and in the process injured some family members. It was accidental and could have happened to anyone,” Mr. Clancy said, “Thankfully, the District Attorney and his staff reviewed all the evidence and made the right decision.”

“The sexual assault charges were dismissed because they never happened. It was only the physical injuries to his family that were dismissed because of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness. Unconsciousness can range anywhere from sleep walking to an epileptic fit. The person has no control over his actions, no awareness of his actions, and no intent to do any of his actions. He is unconscious.”

The San Mateo Daily Journal said Mr. Wagstaffe praised his prosecutors for “examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.” The D.A. told the Palo Alto Daily Post that they “avoided the possibility that Mr. Jaffer would be wrongfully convicted.”

Mr. Clancy said: “This should put an end to the spread of misinformation and gossip that has prevented Mr. Jaffer from returning to his role at Vungle, the start-up he founded.”

Lets just take this one simple sentence by Terry and Stuart “Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual.

How does that statement stack up with this from Steve Wagstaffe on October 17, 2017.

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, we filed a felony complaint against defendant Zain Jaffer. We charged him with five felonies and one misdemeanor as follows: 

Count I 664-288.7(B) felony oral copulation on a minor under 10 years old Count II 288(B)(1) felony forcible lewd act on a child
Count III 245(A)(4) felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury Count IV 273(A)(A) felony child abuse 

Count V 273A(A) felony child abuse
Count VI 243(B) misdemeanor battery on a police officer 

On Tuesday afternoon, the defendant was arraigned in RWC Felony Court, Judge Cristina Mazzei. The defendant appeared with retained attorney Daniel Olmos of Palo Alto. The defense motion to continue was granted and no plea was entered. The case was continued to November 1, 2017 1:30 for entry of plea and to set a preliminary hearing date. Bail was set at $300,000. I do not know whether he is still in custody or has been released on bail (you can check with the Sheriff’s Office PIO for that detail). 

The child victim was the defendant’s three year old son. The officer who was the victim of the battery was not seriously hurt. My assistant will email to you a copy of the charging document setting for the charges. 

Thanks Steve

Hi Emily, 

Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor: 

DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.” 

It’s fair to say that Sitrick and Company did not include TRASH TALK- PUSSY while naked straddling a 3 year old child at 4AM in the backyard or INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER.

Sitrick And Company does not mention the many articles I wrote about this case at San Mateo County News.com and that is understandable they were hired to promote a different story and that they did. The Question I have for Sitrick and Company is Did you ever contact CPS? Were you EVER concerned for the Safety and well-being of a 1 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. I did and I was and still am concerned.

Back to the AUDIT. The day the Jaffer case was dismissed District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent this email to his favorite Media. Notice he DOES NOT MENTION HIS MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE. WHY?

The defense attorney is Daniel Olmos (retained) and Patrick Clancey (retained).

That same day Zain Jaffer read a prepared Statement, Who wrote that prepared Statement? How many defendants go to a court hearing for a Pretrial Hearing with a written prepared Statement Thanking the District Attorney for Dismissing all of Your Charges. I know of NONE.

“I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to defend myself through the legal system, but I am aware that many others are not. Moving forward, I plan on examining ways that I can help others who are innocent and are seeking to obtain justice.”  

— Zain Jaffer

Message to Zain Jaffer Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez is a perfect case for you to pay attention to. You will remember he was arrested 6 years ago. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conferences told the World Deputy Sheriff Lopez Smuggled a Cellphone and Drugs to a Gang Member Inmate. It turns out those Charges were completely Fabricated Who Cares?

Next Court Date for Lopez is November 16, 2020.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, “Best Less Lethal Tools.” Really?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.

The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.

Supervisor Warren Slocum

You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.

I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.

SMC Board of Supervisor Meeting May 5, 2020

  • Dear Supervisors,
    I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened.
    Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018

    Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.”
    Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.

    Thank You
    Michael G. Stogner

    No need to read below just for reference.
    Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.

Who was the Bailiff for Judge Lisa Novak January 4-5 2017?

sheriffsoffice.

By Michael G. Stogner

I would like to personally thank Him/Her for doing their job and honoring the Oath they took. Since 1998 I have known that crimes are being committed in San Mateo County Courtrooms in front of Sheriff Deputies who are sworn officers. They have a Duty to protect the Public.

This for the moment unknown Sheriff Deputy did the right thing. He/She informed Hon. Judge Lisa Novak that he had personally viewed the Video that Sheriff Sergeant Michael Edward Otte just testified to under oath & the penalty of Perjury that he never took with his personal cellphone. At the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, she informed the judges in attendance that She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom. You would think that is Newsworthy not in San Mateo County.

Former Sheriff Sergeant Otte has quietly moved on and he has Invoked his 5th amendment rights.

Who in SMC knew about this Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, County Counsel John Beiers and Deputy Counsel David Silberman? Several Judges,

You would have thought the Government would have cut this case loose after this but that is not how it works in San Mateo County.

16-SM-001677-A | The People of the State of California vs. Rachel Amanda Quintana 

Think about that this for a moment, you are a woman who lives in Half Moon Bay, you have 2 brothers who recently had interactions with SMCSO who provide law enforcement services there. You take the time to personally go to the Substation and report your concerns about those interactions. A short time later YOU are arrested at your home, Sgt. Otte is videoing it on his cellphone. You are in the court system for 4 years. San Mateo County Counsel is going to inflict as much personal pain and suffering on you as possible.

I support Rachel Amanda Quintana.

San Mateo County’s Above the Law Gang.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was ordered to stay home when he was the subject of an Internal Affairs Investigation. That is exactly what happens.

What about SMCSO Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino, and SMCDA Inspectors William Massey & John Warren? Were they ordered to stay home?

Hello Rosemerry,

As you know it’s important for the Public’s Trust that Nobody is above the law.

Was SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino ever placed on Administrative Leave after his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest.

Who at the Sheriff’s Office conducted the Internal Affairs Investigation that you told the PADP was being conducted? Is it completed?

Please provide San Mateo County News.com with the Booking Photo from the Sheriff’s office as you know I have asked for this several times.

Did DMV suspend his California Drivers License yes or no?

Thank You

January 7, 2020 San Mateo County Counsel filed a document with the Superior Court claiming the San Mateo County District Attorney Inspectors William Massey and John Warren are the subjects of an Internal Investigation which just recently commenced, is ongoing and will not be completed until the former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal trial is completed. 

Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s criminal case has been going for more than 5 yrs.

It is a Penal Code 115A Felony to file a False Instrument (written document) with the court.

San Mateo County Counsel than asked the court to SEAL their Document. January 9, 2020

    Michael:

    I hope you also had a good holiday season.

    As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record.  Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.

    Best,

    John

“Unqualified trust relationship with this partner.” Hon. Judge Lisa Novak

By Michael G. Stogner

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

In a response to the Commission on Judicial Performance .

The Commission on Judicial Performance, established in 1960, is the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity and for disciplining judges, pursuant to article VI, section 18 of the California Constitution.

Somebody filed a complaint against Judge Novak because she notified all the Judges present at the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

The person or persons who filed the complaint was not concerned at all by the fact that a SMC Sheriff Sergeant would lie under oath in her court, the person and the CJP was only concerned that she informed all the Judges who attended.

She noted the close relationship between the Sheriffs Office and the Court and cited the need to have an unqualified trust relationship with this partner.

Lets look at this unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.

In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi three False News Releases. Omitting 6th Sheriff Employee for starters.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI arrested by RWCPD September 14, 2019 Sheriff Bolanos refuses to release the Booking Photo. Why?

San Mateo County former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case going for more than 5 years with the sole purpose to cause harm to him mentally and financially. The public might recall the big Press Conference claiming Nobody is above the law in San Mateo County and Charging Deputy Lopez with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel member in Jail. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos knew there was No Evidence to support those charges.

These are just three current examples unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

An older example when Carlos G. Bolanos was Undersheriff 2010 the Brave Female Deputy reporting the 46 San Mateo County Sheriff Male Employees receiving and sharing Porn and Rape Video on County Computers.

It is my experience that Judges in San Mateo County have allowed Sheriff Employees and District Attorney Employees and County Counsel Employees to lie/file false instruments and give False Testimony on a daily basis, this is the Norm it shouldn’t be.

I say you can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

Lets find out exactly what happened after Hon. Judge Lisa Novak made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael E. Otte Committed Perjury, Why wasn’t he charged? Selective Prosecution.

By Michael G. Stogner

On January 4 and 5, 2017, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak heard a motion to dismiss in People v. Rachel Quintana (No. 16-SM-001677) San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael E. Otte testified under oath that he did not take a video of the arrest on his cellphone. Another SMCSO Deputy NICHOLAS P. Kostielney on February 2, 2016 Filed a supplemental report after the arrest Kostielney stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.” The arrest date was August 28, 2015 so that gave Kostielney 5 months to make that statement. Filing a false police report is a crime.

As it would turn out a person at the arrest took out his cellphone and videoed Sgt. Otte videoing the arrest. Also Judge Novak’s Bailiff came up to her and reported that he had viewed the video Sgt. Otte just lied about under oath. Good Job to the bailiff.

January 20, 2017 at a Judges Meeting, Judge Lisa Novak informed the Court’s Judges that she had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself.

How many Judges attended the Judge’s Meeting and have known from that moment on that at least two San Mateo County Sheriff Employees committed perjury and did not make sure that the District Attorney’s Office Prosecute them. How many Attorneys at San Mateo County Counsel’s Office know this information. Finally how Supervisors of SMC and their staff know this information.

The D.A.’s office does in fact charge some people with perjury, 4 witnesses in the Sunny Day Murder trials as an example.

Also this relationship that Judge Novak shared should be broken up.

She noted the close relationship between the sheriffs office and the court and cited the need to have an unqualified trust relationship with this partner.

 

Judge are the safety net for the public, The public trust is at stake here they are counting on the judges to no allow Prosecutorial Misconduct, or Law Enforcement Misconduct or Misconduct by County Counsel. Why didn’t Judge Lisa Novak have Sheriff Sergeant Otte come back to court and explain why he used his cellphone to video an arrest in the first place and why did he just lie under oath in her court?

When San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeants, Deputies lie under oath in Courts the Jury tends to believe them as they should.

Note: Michael E. Otte is no longer employed by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Chinedu Okobi SMC Sheriff In-Custody Death Lawsuit filed. Key Defendant not included, Why?

17862588_1618867384820560_4466109734454003179_n

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

Attorney John Burris filed a lawsuit Friday May 31, 2019 representing Maureen Okobi mother of Chinedu V. Okobi who died in Millbrae, October 3, 2018 In-Custody of SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Four Deputies, one Sergeant and one Civilian. The Civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales was very involved in the physical take down of Chinedu Okobi and can be clearly seen in the District Attorney’s video at the 7:18 mark dispensing O.C. Spray. You will also notice on the Government’s Video they don’t mention CSO Joseph Gonzales either. So he was not investigated period, Why? The D.A.’s Office treated him as a Witness.

Lawsuit 

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Video

March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe held a private Press Conference for select media, public not welcome. At around 8 minutes into the presentation he stated the Cause of Death by the pathologist to be “Cardiac Arrest”. Reporter Julie Small of KQED asked about 40 minutes later “Do you know the manor of death?” Wagstaffe responded “The Coroner of this County labeled it Homicide.” Why didn’t he say that at the beginning? He went on to say “Homicide occurring during Interaction with that Individual.” That means with the Six Employees.

KQED reported that Dr. Rogers determined the cause of Death to be Homicide. I reported that Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 determined cause of Death to be Homicide.

Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Death, San Mateo County Sheriff’s News Release was a lie. “Suspect Immediately Assaulted the Deputy,” Why?

Fact: There was No Immediate Assault of a Deputy. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knew that.

Who word crafted that? How many people were involved in that false statement?

A Reasonable Person after viewing the Video prepared by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe will come to the conclusion that Chinedu V. Okobi died on El Camino Real, Millbrae California at the 9:10 mark 87 seconds before his body was sat up on his rear end with his legs straight out and his head slumped forward closing his airways. That is a full 9 minutes 40 seconds before CPR Chest Compressions were given while his hands were handcuffed behind his back. During this time there was a lot of talk and captions about checking his pulse but there is little evidence any of the 5 Sheriff Deputies or the Civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales did actually check his pulse.

SMCSO Deputy De Martini’s statement, He said he felt a pulse, but said due to the fact he had just been struggling with Okobi, he was NO LONGER Certain if he felt Okobi’s pulse or his own. That’s pretty honest. He also said “I kind of raised up his Head a little bit.

SMCSO Sergeant David Weidner “I Never take his pulse or anything like that.”

SMCSO Watt He was Unsure if decedent Okobi was breathing because he was not moving around to the extent Deputy Watt expected after the struggle. Regarding checking pulse.”Trying to reach” “I stopped trying to take a pulse because he was moving his head around.”

SMCSO Deputy Wang Did not check Okobi for a pulse.

SMCSO Lorenzatti “Put him in a seated position Paramedics arrived on the scene and she recalled seeing a paramedic determine Okobi did have a pulse.”  Deputy Lorenzatti did NOT check pulse. This statement makes it look like the paramedics were right there and started caring for Chinedu Okobi.  It was 10 minutes and 29 seconds of Okobi sitting with his head slumped down before paramedics at 17:59 Caption   “Paramedics try to awaken Okobi and attempt to locate a pulse.”

Jeffrey Martin the expert hired by Steve Wagstaffe and paid approx. $15,000 by Taxpayers stated 7:10 as the time Okobi was Handcuffed. Wagstaffe’s video doesn’t give a caption for time handcuffed. Weidner states Okobi was placed in seated position within 10 seconds of being handcuffed. That would be 7:20 Martin says 20 seconds so 7:30 Okobi in seated position. The video shows 10:27 Chinedu Okobi sat up on his rear end completely limp and unresponsive with head slumped forward which would have stopped his breathing if he was in fact breathing at that time. That is a 3 MINUTE difference between Expert and Deputy statements and the Video evidence.

SMCSO Press Release October 3, 2018

The deputy exited his vehicle to contact the suspect and the suspect immediately assaulted the deputy, that is the biggest lie of the two. a male adult who was running in and out of traffic on El Camino Real is the second.

Chinedu Okobi was not running in and out out traffic before Deputy Wang tried to herd him with his vehicle including driving the wrong way on ECR.

Supervisor Don Horsley while serving as Sheriff terminated the employment of a Correctional Officer for being dishonest, lying to a law enforcement officer during an investigation.

Don Horsley Terminates Employee for Dishonesty

The False San Mateo County Sheriff Office Press/News Release is the same thing. Everybody in the DA’s Office, County Counsel, and Sheriff’s Office who had access to the data knew the Press Release was Dishonest. There lies the problem for SMC residents/

PIO Rosemerry Blankswade and Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos are responsible for this press release to be put out to the public.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe took 5 months to finally release a highly edited creation of video/some-audio including Captions he felt would be helpful in misleading the public to believe that Chinedu V. Okobi “He was still breathing when the Sheriff Deputies turned him over to the AMR people.” He takes it a step further and said it was several minutes after AMR had him. If several means 3 minutes that would be around the 21:00 in his video. Wagstaffe does not tell you what time in the video that transfer of responsibility occurred.

Wagstaffe also fails to identify CIVILIAN CSO Joseph Gonzales 6:26 mark who was physically involved in the takedown of Mr. Okobi. It was Illegal for him to be involved. “He had multiple red/brown stains located on his person from the altercation.”

You can see him in action at the 7:18 mark when several deputies get pepper sprayed. Wagstaffe’s Caption at 7:22 mark “A deputy attempts to subdue Okobi with pepper spray but mistakenly hits his fellow deputies and sergeant.” Joesph Gonzales is not a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy, Wagstaffe knows that. He doesn’t identify the deputy, Why? Wagstaffe’s Expert Jeffrey Martin says Deputy Wang did it. There are 5 deputies and 1 CSO that makes 6 people involved. Three of them got sprayed, that leaves two deputies, Deputy DeMartini’s statement rules him out. The person who did the spraying said “I did, I did that.” Jamie Draper has access to voice recognition software it should be simple to identify who said those words. It’s one of two people Deputy Wang  or CSO Civilian Gonzales.

Wagstaffe & Bolanos only identify the 5 deputies Why? The sixth Sheriff Employee CSO Joseph Gonzales is a civilian that’s why.

Wagstaffe fails to put a caption at the 10:57 mark. Deputy DeMartini Tampering with Evidence

Wagstaffe’s Video and Data Released March 1, 2019

Partial Video of March 1, 2019 Press Conference 

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirms Chinedu Okobi’s Death was a Homicide at 47:30 mark. How does he explain no criminal charges?

I attended the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Press Conference on March 1, 2019. At the -12:02 mark I asked Steve Wagstaffe “After Mr. Okobi stopped breathing, By putting him in a seated position did his head not go forward and stop his breathing?”

Steve Wagstaffe responded “It did not.” “The belief was not.” “That did not occur.” Because they continued to check for the breathing.

“But he was breathing and he had a pulse at that time.”

“He actually uttered some words.” Really? What were the uttered words, who heard them, and what time on the video? No caption for this important assertion.

The Video Wagstaffe produced shows otherwise at 10:27 mark.

A thought for the readers, Steve Wagstaffe and his TEAM and Sheriff Carlos Bolanos have had all of the data for 5 months. It was withheld from reporters and the public for 5 months.

Effective May 1, 2019 ALL E-MAILS WILL BE DELETED THAT ARE 90 DAYS OLD AND OLDER.

Welcome to San Mateo County.
