Were the dumping of dead bodies, on Skyline Boulevard, foreseeable or something of that order inevitable? Did sheriff’s executives fail the community?
The geographic area of Skyline Boulevard, in unincorporated San Mateo County, was formerly assigned patrol deputies to provide line-level law enforcement services for each of the sheriff’s office’s shifts. It was known as the “90 Beat.” The position, that of a deputy sheriff providing patrol services, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, was fully funded for by the County Board of Supervisors and staffed by the sheriff.
Under then Sheriff Don Horsely & Undersheriff Greg Munks, staffing for this position was changed, with the deputies being removed (reassigned) and the funding being used to, first, pay for deputies assigned to East Palo Alto and, later, other pet projects of the sheriff. This practice was continued, first, by Munks who took Horsely’s position as sheriff, in 2007, and then Carlos Bolanos who was Illegally Appointed Sheriff July 12, 2016 by the Board of Supervisors and became elected Sheriff in June 2018 sworn in Janruary 2019.
In short, Horsley, Munks, and now Bolanos, respectively, made decisions to leave county residents who live at and about Skyline Boulevard unprotected, without a dedicated patrol officer, because they were deemed to have less of a need, even though the County Board of Supervisors fully fund the position and, I dare say, have the expectation that this was and is being done.
Could the two recent homicides, on Skyline Boulevard, be, in part, the result of no dedicated deputy sheriffs patrolling that area, providing an incentive for those that would engage in crime there? And, in that regard, couldn’t the resulting crimes have been foreseeable, inevitable, since there was no dedicated deterrent?
Did Horsely, Munks, or Bolanos ever inform area residents of their decision to divert resources? Did these residents not have an expectation their neighborhood was being staffed and protected by sheriff’s patrols?
Had a Deputy not been responding to an unrelated call for service and driven by and noticed the first body, how long would it have been before it was discovered? Shouldn’t County residents expect more from current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos? Has he shown the vision, decision making, results, and stewardship residents should expect from the chief executive officer of a $140,000,000 enterprise / budget? Certainly, this should be a question best put to the residents of the 90 Beat?
Another way to view this, isn’t such failure of leadership and results by Sheriff Bolanos foreseeable, given his past performance? Shouldn’t we both expect and be resigned to it?

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies arrested a suspect last night after firing at the car he was driving towards them. They had just located a man who was calling out for help, he had been stabbed and died at the scene. The night before they were up on Skyline for another murder case close by and about the same time in the evening.
The man arrested has been identified as Malik Dosouqui of Pacifica and has been hospitalized and not cleared to appear in court yet. Also the Sheriff’s Office is still working on both murder cases and have not provided the police reports to the District Attorney’s Office yet.
The June 17, 2019 first Murder victim is Abdulmalek Nasher of Pacifica went to the Skyline location in response to a call for service.
The June 18, 2019 second Murder victim is John Sione Pekipaki, of East Palo Alto. He was a Tow Truck driver who also went to the Skyline location because of a call for service.

Salvador Sanchez has been identified as the off duty LAPD Officer who shot and killed Kenneth French. Shot both parents Russell and Paola French, who are in critical condition. It should be noted the LAPD and Corona Police Department have refused to identify Officer Salvador Sanchez for the last 5 days they still have not identified him. Credit goes to the reporters at the LATIMES.
The immediate releasing of the Costco Video and the Officers’ name is so important to Public Trust. For Five days we still don’t know How many shots were fired? Who was shot first? How many shots? Who was shot second? How many shots? Who’s was shot third? How many shots? Officer Salvador Sanchez did not claim he was fearful for his life. That came later from his attorney as it always does. Why did he shoot at all?
Why has Costco remained silent. They are not acting like a good neighbor or good citizen.
In San Mateo County last year Chinedu Okobi was killed on October 3, 2018 by 6 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Within hours of his death Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his PIO Rosemary Blankswade issued a False News Release that stated as fact “He immediately assaulted the Deputy.” Both knew that was a lie, they left that statement on the Sheriff’s website for 5 months. The videos were not released for 5 months, as soon as they were the public knew Sheriff Bolanos and the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe (who supported the false statement) promoted the lie.
Costco release the video today. The public can handle the truth.

Robert Edward Davies
June 6, 2019 The San Jose Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force / Child Exploitation Detail (CED) arrested suspect Robert Davies for contacting a minor to commit a felony.
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.
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.
