The real San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi R.I.P.

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?

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 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/

Happy San Mateo County Day.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC Supervisor President David Canepa

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.

This is whats Important to President David Canepa and the Supervisors of San Mateo County, Todays meeting.

Presentation of a proclamation designating May 12, 2021 as Happy San Mateo County Day, marking the 165th birthday of the County.

San Mateo County, Elected Officials and Staff Reform is what’s needed. Daly City’s Homicide of Roger Allen.

By Michael G. Stogner

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?

BOS Meeting 4/20/21 Stogner Public Comment at 8:22-10:32 mark

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 

Four children hold signs and wear shirts saying "Black Lives Matter"
San Mateo County Elected and Staff Do Black Lives really Matter to you?

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”.

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.

  • 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 News.com

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.

When Mark Melville becomes SMC Sheriff in 2022.

I asked the only Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff in the 2022 Election a direct question about the Axon Log Records that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is refusing to make public in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide of May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.

Candidate Mark Melville’s answer:

I can assure you unequivalently, I will release said records…..There is absolutely no reason not to release the records….Transparency…!!!!

Second in Custody Death in November, Sheriff Bolanos is Silent

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

The first in custody death of Julio Boch- Curup, 21 R.I.P. happened on November 11, 2020.

The second in custody death happened November 24, 2020. Name not released yet.

That’s 2 In Custody Deaths of San Mateo County Sheriff in 2 weeks.

The obvious question is why are people in San Mateo County Jail during a Pandemic. Are they there because they couldn’t afford bail? Are they the most dangerous to the public?

Is two Inmate deaths in 2 weeks normal for this time of the year?

What do the 5 Supervisors think about this?

Which Law Enforcement Agency is investigating these two In-Custody Deaths?

With what the Residents now know about Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P., Errol Chang R.I.P., Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. and Sandra L. Harmon R.I.P. all Homicides by Law Enforcement of course Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos would request the Attorney General of the State of California to investigate these two deaths. Right?

San Mateo County District Attorney Case Closed. Sandra L. Harmon R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

No surprise here.

Sandra Harmon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 28, 2020 Re: Officer Involved Shooting Of Sandra Harmon On May 5, 2020 The District Attorney’s Office has completed its investigation into the shooting of Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay during a confrontation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies David Dominguez and John Baba in the parking lot of the Pasta Moon restaurant at 845 Main Street in Half Moon Bay. After a thorough investigation by Inspector James Haggarty and other inspectors with the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office, District Attorney Stephen M. Wagstaffe has concluded that while this is a tragic incident with a very sad outcome, there is no legal basis for filing criminal charges against Deputies Dominguez and Baba. District Attorney Wagstaffe has concluded that the use of force by the deputies against Sandra Harmon was legally justifiable self-defense pursuant to California Penal Code section 835a and section 196. Therefore this case is now deemed closed by this office. The letter written by District Attorney Wagstaffe to San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos setting forth the basis for the decision declining to file criminal charges in this case is attached to this e-mail press release. Binders containing all of the reports referred to above are available for public inspection. Anyone seeking to read all or part of the reports should contact Chief Inspector John Warren of the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations at (650) 363-4074

Coroners Report Complete for Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Harmon

Sandra Lee Harmon was the Unarmed woman who was shot at and killed by at least one San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay, California. She was shot at by Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez at least 5 times while she was unarmed and had her hands above her head. It’s not clear from the video if any of his shots hit her. Sheriff Deputy John Baba also fired shots at her as she bent down at the shotgun that was on the ground. This you can see in the video Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos released to the public 45 days after the killing.

August 24, 2020 I followed up with the San Mateo County Coroner on my request for a copy of the Official Coroners Report which will have the Manner of Death. The good news is the Report is now complete, and the Coroners Office has acknowledged my official request. The bad news is I was told that San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe would have to approve its release. They want to make sure it doesn’t impact any investigation by the D.A.’s Office. August 26, 2020 District Attorney has informed me the Investigation is complete and he expects to announce the results either tomorrow Friday 8/28/2020 or early next week. As soon as I get the copy I will report the results.

San Mateo County residents will remember that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos stated early on that there was a shoot-out, She fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez first as he was taking cover. Sheriff Bolanos also released a highly edited video 45 days after the killing of Sandra L. Harmon, in that video the viewer can see Ms. Harmon is Unarmed with her hands above her head while Five shots are being fired at her. Sheriff Bolanos has also explained as a matter of fact that both the Body Camera and the MAV Audio of Deputy Dominguez does not exist. Why? How is that possible? That’s two for two recording devices for the benefit of both law enforcement and the public.

Is it really true that both recordings do Not Exist?

Videos should be released ASAP to eliminate any suspicion the public might have about the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.
