For the last 20 years Iv’e been asking the Supervisors to Make San Mateo County Safer. Make sure the Sheriff and PIO issue honest and accurate Press/News Releases when an In Custody Homicide by Law Enforcement happens. October 3, 2018, Chinedu V. Okobi and May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon are just two recent examples. When Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lies about a Critical Incident and more specifically about the person, the human being killed by Law Enforcement, I think that is a bad thing. President David Canepa doesn’t.
Last month on April 7, 2021 Roger Allen was killed by somebody in Daly City that we know for sure. The Daly City Police Department put out an alert. Here is what it said:
·**POLICE ACTIVITY** on the 700 block of Niantic Avenue near Westlake Avenue. Please avoid the area. There is NO threat to the public. We will provide an update later. Thank you.
No mention that Roger Allen was shot and killed, and the entire incident from start to finish meaning his body was transported by ambulance from the Crime Scene in 16 minutes, according to DCPD and SMCDA. That’s Fast.
At the April 20, 2021 Board of Supervisor meeting during public comment at the 8 minute mark in the video of the meeting I asked the entire Board to make a public Statement supporting the Release of Names of the Daly City Police Officers involved and to Support Transparency. They all chose Not to do that.
In 2014 Errol Chang was killed inside his home in Pacifica by two Daly City Police Swat Team Officers. They were both ordered to enter the tiny home by who knows who of the Daly City Swat Command after being on scene for only 6 hours. They entered and assaulted Errol’s space and shot him in the chest 8 times killing him on the spot.
The Pacifica Police on the other hand did everything right. They were first on the scene and were in communication with Errol and his family members and nobody got hurt and they tried to calm him down to get him the help his family was trying to accomplish.
The question I have for Who knows Who in charge of the Daly City Swat Team that night is, What was your hurry?What did you think was going to happen when your two guys broke into the only safe space Errol had? What was your Plan?
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said:
Officers Mario Busalacchi and Stephen Woelkers “undoubtedly saved the life” of Busalacchi by shooting and killing 34-year-old Errol Chang in the home he shared with his mother at 384 San Pedro Ave.
Daly City’s “Who knows Who,” could have saved Errol Chang’s life by not ordering Busalacchi & Woelkers into the house in the first place.
A special note and commendation for the conduct of Officers Busalacchi and Woelkers must be made. It is our belief that both officers conducted themselves in a professional, reasonable and proper manner and to the last moment sought to avoid the very result demanded by the conduct of Errol Chang. The reaction of both officers to the threat of imminent death to Ofr. Busalacchi is to be commended. Officer Busalacchi faced a remarkably dangerous situation, knowing that an angry, irrational and armed man was now raising the knife to stab him again. When he found it necessary to resort to lethal force, he did so in a manner that probably saved his own life. Ofr. Woelker’s conduct in seeking to prevent further attack and the likely death of his fellow officer was equally commendable. The conduct of the officers in this case can only be described as exemplary and the community was well served by their actions.
Daly City Police Department provided assistance with the investigation. Any reasonable person would know that this is a Bad Idea aka known as a Huge Conflict of Interest.
I hope you noticed what I call Wagstaffe 101 “very result demanded by the conduct of Errol Chang,” Always blame the deceased for his/her own death.
I don’t think Daly City Swat Officers deserve any commendation for following orders they knew meant finish this and kill him. When you put yourself in harms way, and then kill the person I don’t think that is bravery.
This Swat Team assault on the home after only six hours should be compared with the Redwood City Police and San Mateo County Sheriff Swat Teams combined 17.5 hour Standoff of James (Jim) McGee in Redwood City. Totally different outcome. Walked out said hi to his friends he was former RWCPD Officer nobody injured, no doors smashed in you get the picture.
It’s been 18 days since Roger Allen a Black man was killed by Daly City Police Officers while sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (flat tire) that nobody called the police for.
At this time in America’s History you would expect at least one of Daly City Elected Officials to make a public comment on this Homicide by DCPD Officers and THAT ONE would be Glenn Sylvester a 33 year Police Officer who has trained Police Officers. Did he ever train Officers to reach inside a vehicle to wrestle a gun from a subject’s hands?
To say the facts are limited is an Understatement. The only thing we do know is that Roger Allen R.I.P is dead and Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley refuses to identify the 4 Involved officers. Roger Allen died less than 8 miles from where Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by 6 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees, A Sergeant, 4 Deputies and a CSO who sprayed O.C. spray into Okobi’s face at close range after he was tased 7 times struck with extended baton, body slammed to the ground from behind and dog-piled by the group where he was handcuffed and stopped breathing. Not one of the Sheriff Employees checked his pulse or provided life saving measures for the next 9 minutes. They wanted to make sure he was dead before the AMR staff got to him. Mission accomplished.
In San Mateo County Nobody is above the Law except “Those Who Matter.”
I would suggest that Councilman Glenn Sylvester rethink why he is on the Daly City Council.
I don’t recall him ever saying one word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide. Chinedu Okobi was killed for “Walking While Black in Millbrae.” No running in and out of traffic, No immediately assaulting the deputy as Sheriff Bolanos claimed. just a large Black man walking on a sidewalk in San Mateo County.
Roger Allen was killed in Daly City for “Sitting in the passenger seat While Black.”
Councilman Glenn Sylvester consider saying “I resign” that would be a step in the right direction.
I have Never thought it was a good idea to have Law Enforcement people become Politicians or County Managers.
Mark D, Melville Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 Got it Right commenting on the fact that all Daly City Elected and Staff refuse to name the 4 Police Officers Involved in Roger Allen’s Homicide. Why?
“There is no reason for the PD to withhold the names of all personnel involved in said incident.”
The Maltbie name and San Mateo County Government go back a long way. Shanna is married to Jeff Maltbie who happens to be the City of San Carlos Manager, Jeff is the son of John Maltbie who was San Mateo County Manager for many years and has personally benefited by being a member of the “Those Who Matter” team. Everyone remembers the April 1993 Prostitution Sting Operation where Sheriff Deputy Trisha Sanchez was the Decoy. District Attorney Jame P. Fox years later when asked why didn’t you prosecute Maltbie he said “That case never crossed my desk.”If there is another family that is more involved in running the government of San Mateo County I’d like to know it. Shanna Maltbie is the City Manager of Daly City, which means she runs Daly City, she has influence on who is hired and fired like Police Chief Patrick Hensley. She easily could instruct Chief Hensley to identify the four Daly City Police Officers who were involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021 who was shot and killed while sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (flat tire) on a residential street. According to the very limited (almost No Information) provided by Police Chief Patrick Hensley and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe the Daly City Police made contact with the disabled truck at 1:55 PM and Roger Allen R.I.P. was transported by ambulance from the crime scene at 2:11 PM. That’s Fast, as a matter of fact that might be a San Mateo County Record for AMR if it was AMR. During this 16 minutes a lot of things happened that make a reasonable concerned citizen want answers to. Why were 4 DCPD Officers called to a truck with a flat tire? What are the names of the 4 DCPD Officers Involved? What training policy teaches DCPD Officers to reach inside a parked vehicle and wrestle with a Large Black Man who allegedly was wielding a Fake gun. What is DCPD Policy on shooting into a vehicle when there are other passengers inside? What time were the two shoots fired into the occupied vehicle? What time was AMR requested? What time did AMR arrive on scene? Did AMR treat one of the Police Officers at the Scene? How many minutes did AMR provide life saving measures (Chest Compressions) on Roger Allen before transporting his body? How many minutes did DCPD Officers provide Life saving measures to Roger Allen? What time did that occur?
These are just some of the Question the public now has because of Daly City’s behavior. This could be a very long meeting caused by the Elected Officials and Staff.
Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.
This is what Shanna Maltbie says about Daly City. If this were true the Names of the 4 Officers would have been made public 17 days ago. Public Comment would be first to follow The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag: “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,”

Roger Allen was shot and killed in Daly City on April 7, 2021, Four Unidentified Daly City Police Officers were involved.
Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley has chosen to Not Identify his 4 Police Officers. Why?
Daly City Manager Shawanna Maltbie supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Assistant Manager Stephen Stolte, supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Day City Mayor Juslyn Manalo supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Vice Mayor Glenn R. Sylvester supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Raymond A. Buenaventura supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Pamela DiGiovanni supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Rod Daus-Magbual supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
It’s been 16 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen, America is demanding change in Policing, Colin Kaepernick risked his career to stop Police Officers from killing Black and Brown people and abusing their authority. Yesterday Columbus Ohio Police released Body Worn Camera Video and the Identity of the Involved Officer within HOURS of a shooting death of a 16 year old Black girl.
Why are Daly City’s entire Elected and hired Staff on a different page then the rest of America? They can’t be racists can they? No of course not they signed and supported the Black Lives Resolution less then a year ago. If they are not racists what could it possibly be?
Could it be as simple as “Those Who Matter.”
I spoke to the Supervisors of San Mateo County April 20, 2021 asking them to make a Public Statement calling for the release of the names of the 4 Involved Daly City Police Officers. Supervisors David Canepa and Warren Slocum sponsored the County’s Black Lives Matter Resolution below. You will notice the Supervisors don’t mention Chinedu V. Okobi who I say is San Mateo County’s George Floyd Homicide by six Sheriff Employees. Why?
I would have expected the “Showboater” Supervisor David Canepa to have made a PUBLIC Statement on this obvious topic 16 days ago, he has remained silent.
· At a Special Meeting this Wed., July 22, 5pm, the Daly City Council will consider potential adoption of a Resolution in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to reaffirm the City’s commitment to racial equity. Register to join the zoom meeting at http://bit.ly/specialmeetingjuly22…
Black Lives Matter Resolution
Posted by kchaiken on Jun 24th 2020
There are moments in history that we look back on as breaking points for social change. I believe that, at this moment, we are facing one of these breaking points. Our nation is in collective anguish at the murder of George Floyd and the countless other Black persons who have been the victims of police violence.
San Mateo County is not exempt from this anguish nor are we exempt from responsibility, but we have the power right now to make a change. We have heard from our community and from protestors across the nation that enough is enough. We need to take concrete steps to address this injustice. That is why I proposed and voted in favor of the San Mateo County Black Lives Matter Resolution.
Although this resolution does not yet outline any specifics, it is a commitment that will serve as the foundation for a whole new set of anti-racist policies and a re-evaluation of our current policies to root out injustice, biases, and systemic racism. These policies will not just serve to benefit members of our Black community, but all people of color, and by extension our entire County.
This resolution is also a key component of our overall work to promote equity in San Mateo County. I want to make it abundantly clear that the County of San Mateo cares deeply about creating an equitable and just community for all.But, it is not possible to have equity for all, until Black Lives Matter.
Hay momentos en la historia que consideramos puntos de quiebre para el cambio social. Creo que, en este momento, nos enfrentamos a uno de estos puntos de quiebre. Nuestra nación está en angustia colectiva por el asesinato de George Floyd y las innumerables personas Afroamericanas que han sido víctimas de la violencia policial.
El Condado de San Mateo no está exento de esta angustia ni estamos exentos de la responsabilidad, pero tenemos el poder en este momento para hacer un cambio. Hemos escuchado de nuestra comunidad y de manifestantes en todo el país que ya es suficiente. Necesitamos tomar medidas concretas para abordar esta injusticia. Es por eso por lo que propuse y voté a favor de la Resolución de Asuntos de Vidas Negras del Condado de San Mateo.
Aunque esta resolución aún no describe un plan detallado, es un compromiso que servirá como base para un conjunto completamente nuevo de políticas antirracistas y una reevaluación de nuestras políticas actuales para erradicar la injusticia, los prejuicios y el racismo sistémico. Estas políticas no solo servirán para beneficiar a los miembros de nuestra comunidad Afroamericana, sino a todas las personas de color y, por extensión, a todo nuestro condado.
Esta resolución también es un componente clave de nuestro trabajo general para promover la equidad en el Condado de San Mateo. Quiero dejar en claro que el Condado de San Mateo se preocupa profundamente por crear una comunidad equitativa y justa para todos. Pero, no es posible tener equidad para todos, hasta que “Black Lives Matter”.

Daly City Elected Officials, You are responsible for your Police Chief’s behavior.
It’s been 13 days since Roger Allen was killed by somebody that was employed by the City of Daly City. This unnamed person is supposedly employed by the Daly City Police Department. Until that person and others are identified the public is left to guess and wonder.
What was the plan? This killing of a Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (Flat Tire) and now dead is very similar to several Deaths by San Mateo County Law Enforcement.
Errol Chang R.I.P. What was the plan other than to kill him? He was inside a tiny house by himself surrounded by Swat TEAM from Daly City.
Yanira Serrana-Garcia R.I.P. What was the plan? Yanira was shot and killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his vehicle, he passed his partner and went on his own with No Plan.
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. What was the plan? A Moorehouse Graduate, a Father, a man who committed No Crime, other than walking on the sidewalk in Millbrae while Black. The News Release issued by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade had so many lies in it and Omissions. For now I will just say this Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd. Six Sheriff Employees on top of Chinedu after tasing him SEVEN times striking him with an extended baton, spraying O.C. in his face at close range right before he was handcuffed and stopped breathing. He was sat up on El Camino Real with deputies bracing his back so his head would be slumped forward to assure he would never breath again. No Medical aide was provided by any of the Six Sheriff Employees for the next 9 minutes. No matter what they claim or the edited video with the false captions.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. What was the plan? After searching for her for more than 20 minutes a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez goes on his own, doesn’t report where he is and claims he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera 14 shots were fired at Sandra three stuck her back they were all fatal shots. Three shell casings were moved at the crime scene. The San Mateo County Sheriff Office provided a video 5 months later starring Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He promotes the False story of a Shootout started by Sandra, He doesn’t mention that she was shot while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. He doesn’t mention the 3 shell casings being moved at the crime scene. He doesn’t mention the 2 bullet holes found in a building by a citizen in a location that proves the Sheriff’s Story is a lie. San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman is responsible for refusing to make the AXON Log Records public. They will prove in a matter of minutes if the Government’s story of the Body Worn Camera was turned off. Why wouldn’t David Silberman want the truth to be made public. The AXON Log Records are paid for by the public.
Now it’s Daly City’s turn for the Elected Officials and Staff to do what they claim they are committed to provide Transparency. What was the Police Department’s plan for FOUR Officers to to be involved in a disabled vehicle in the middle of the afternoon in a residential neighborhood. The vehicle had 3 occupants, Was there a 911 call? The PD’s statement says the incident started at 1:55 PM. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told me that Roger Allen was transported by ambulance from the crime scene at 2:11 PM. That is 16 minutes total time involved. That might just be an all time record for San Mateo County.
The Government’s Story that every Daly City Elected Official and Staff supports is one of the unnamed four Police Officers reached into the vehicle and wrestled with decedent and a fake gun. They don’t describe it as a BB gun they call it a fake gun.
What was the Plan? Does Daly City Police Department train their Police Officers to reach into a vehicle with occupants and wrestle with one who allegedly is holding a GUN?
There is a lot of talk about Law Enforcement Reform around America right now I suggest we add Elected Officials and Staff Reform. #ElectedOfficialsReform
District Attorney’s Office Chief Inspector William Massey at (650) 363-4883.
Why would you, Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie, and your entire city council be OK with the District Attorney’s Office Investigation in the death of Roger Allen? You do remember Errol Chang R.I.P., Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P, Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P., Ramsey Saad R.I.P., Kyle Hart R.I.P., Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and now Roger Allen R.I.P..
Chinedu Valentine Okobi R.I.P. is San Mateo County’s George Floyd R.I.P.
William Massey was responsible for the Investigation of Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. Homicide by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees, Five deputies and one CSO. Within hours of Chinedu being murdered the Sheriff’s Office issued a False Press Release.
This false statement stayed on the Governments website for 5 months. All the News Media made sure that everyone knew a Large Blackman “Immediately Assaulted the deputy as soon as he exited his vehicle.”
William Massey knew that statement was pure fantasy, and he didn’t care.
He knew that Sandra Lee Harmon had already been shot in the back when this picture was taken. You can see her hands above her head and the shotgun on the ground several feet from her. Now to the left of the shotgun and the right of the R.V you can see a long 2×4 on the ground, you can not see in this photo but there are several others that show THREE spent shell casings that were moved (Evidence Tampering) from that location to a location that better fit the False story being fed to the public. Those three shell casings also prove that Deputy Dominguez fired first not the False story the Deputy was fired at first. William Massey was fine with that.
Ask William Massey who word crafted “After moving her arms around in an erratic manner.” Think about this a person who has dropped her gun, and has her hands up above her head and is being fired upon and struck in her back, What kind of motion of the arms would you expect when a bullet entered her back? erratic manner?
It should come as no surprise that Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie, the Mayor, City Council and the Police Chief couldn’t care less about the death of a Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (Flat Tire) when FOUR Daly City Police Officers showed up and minutes later Roger Allen was dead.
Not one of them said a word about the two Homicides by San Mateo County Law Enforcement mentioned above.
If they did care they would have demanded the names of the Police Officers be released immediately, and they would have demanded the Attorney General Investigate this Homicide, It’s that simple.
The question now for the Residents of Daly City and San Mateo County is what do You do when your City Manager in this case Shawanna Maltbie refuses to do her/his job?
NBC Bay Area News wanted to make sure the viewers knew the Important part of the Homicide of Roger Allen by Daly City Police Officers.
In this 21 second video they left the viewers with, “He was fearful for the partners life.”
They don’t mention 4 Police Officers surrounding a vehicle with a Flat Tire in a residential neighborhood at 1:55 PM as reported by the DCPD and the deceased Roger Allen left the crime scene by ambulance at 2:11 PM according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. They don’t question the official story of a Daly City Police Officer reaching inside the vehicle to grab a gun. Where is that taught for Police Officers to ever do that?
The Elected leaders and staff including City Manager and Police Chief are responsible for this Homicide.
Daly City Police should have had Body Worn Cameras since 2016.
This Investigation should be done by the Attorney General’s Office.
Roger Allen is dead, he was killed by a Daly City Police Officer, on April 7, 2021 that is a fact.
What we don’t know is the name of the Daly City Police Officer who shot and killed him.
What we do know which is almost nothing, but is always promoted by the District Attorney’s Office and the News Media whenever a civilian is murdered by law enforcement in San Mateo County is that the officer was FEARFUL for either his/her life or their partners. If the word fearful is missing from the original Police Reports it will be mentioned by the Attorneys who meet with their clients the Police Officers within minutes of the Homicide.
Why did it take 7 days to make a statement in the first place?
Daly City claims to be committed to transparency, What is the name of the Police Officer who shot and killed Roger Allen? This officer in on paid administrative leave. Daly City Elected Officials, The Police Chief, and City Manager, Assistant City Manager all know who the officer is. Releasing the Officer’s name won’t effect any investigation, it will provide the transparency the city claims to be committed to.
Why wouldn’t Daly City Leaders ask D.A. Wagstaffe to refer this Investigation to the Attorney General’s Office?
Another question for all Daly City Elected officials and Staff. Why have you allowed your Police Department to work without Body Worn Cameras which the San Mateo County Grand Jury warned you about in 2016.
Body worn Cameras are for the benefit of Police Officers as much as they are for the public.
Minneapolis is a prefect example, Daunte Wright was murdered by a Police Officer April 11, 2021, The Police Chief released the Body Worn Video within 18 hours. The public got to see what the public servants actually did, not what they say the did. Since the release, the Police Officer who was identified right away resigned and has been arrested and charged with manslaughter. The Police Chief has resigned, and the City Manager has been FIRED. That’s all within 2 days.
Why did 4 Daly City Police Officers show up for a vehicle with a flat tire in a residential neighborhood? Who called for backup. According to the Police Chief this innocent started at 1:55 PM and according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Roger Allen was in the Ambulance and on his way at 2:11 PM. That’s 16 minutes. Which DCPD Officers provided life saving measures and for how many minutes before the Ambulance arrived?
How many minutes did EMT’s provide life saving measures after they arrived and before they loaded Roger Allen and transported him?
What time was the fatal shot fired? What time was the second shot fired?
What training of DCPD Officers teaches them to reach into a vehicle and grab a gun that is in the hands of an occupant? That’s the story that is being reported by Stave Wagstaffe.
There is No excuse for Daly City Police to not have Body Worn Cameras period. Those videos should be made public with No Edits or Captions added within 12 hours of a Critical Incident.
What makes Daly City Elected Officials and Staff think they are not going to have to answer these simple questions?
Recognizing a photo and public speaking opportunity is David Canepa’s speciality. Yesterday he again finds himself in another Supervisors district saying nice big words he has no influence over. Here is what he said yesterday “We will not tolerate hate in San Mateo County,” said Canepa. That should have always been true in SMC
He is in the company of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Has Supervisor David Canepa watched the video created by Carlos Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe and made public of Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees in Millbrae October 3, 2018. I have asked him he has not responded. Has he made sure the Sgt Zaidi was criminally charged for filing a false police report in that investigation?
Has Supervisor David Canepa made any public comment when Barbara Bonilla was first removed from her office as Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League. Barbara Bonilla worked for Carlos G. Bolanos back at Redwood City Police Department in the early 2000’s and she was his campaign manager in 2018. She was finally criminally charged by the Attorney General’s Office after investigating her for Embezzlement and Money Laundering.
Has Supervisor David Canepa made any public comment about the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by one and possibly two San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2021. The City requested the A.G. Criminally Investigate Sheriff Bolanos and District Attorney for there many false statements after the fact. No evidence of a shoot out, Tampering with Evidence the moving of 3 shell cases. The refusing to provide the Axon Log Records which would verify the statements by both that Deputy Dominguez turned off his Body Worn Camera before he shot an unarmed woman in the back while her hands were above her head. Also it looks like he fired first.
Has Supervisor David Canepa ever done anything to make sure Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe would never use their authority to cause harm to a fellow Law Enforcement Officer like x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. One of the many false charges that they held a Press conference for was Smuggling a cell phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in Maguire jail. What did he say when those charges were simply dismissed 2.5 years later? Nothing
What did Supervisor David Canepa do when he learned about that, The Sheriff Office and the District Attorney’s Office used as a WEAPON to cause COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES to a Sheriff Deputy? Nothing
Has he listened in to any of the recent Juan P. Lopez Court Hearings remember 6.5 years and counting?
