DAVID C. EBLOVI vs. COUNTY OF SAN MATEO – 21CV002208

This is a case to watch, Why would a resident of Half Moon Bay, California be compelled to Sue the Government of San Mateo County over the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. by the Sheriff’s Office Employees on May 5, 2020.

Why would David Eblovi file the Lawsuit in Alameda County and not San Mateo County?

Why does San Mateo County Government want this case heard in SMC?

Mr. Eblovi knows the truth about how San Mateo County Government works and it is the Residents who are responsible for the behavior of ALL Government Officials.

Half Moon Bay has a Brady Officer for Chief of Police.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is no surprise under the leadership of City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester. It turns out former Chief of Police and Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez has not been on the job for the last 4 months. The announcement that Captain Andy Armando is now the Police Chief of Half Moon Bay just recently was reported by the HMBR.

Sheriff Captain Andy Armando

A simple google search of Lt. Andrew Armando would have produced some of the articles San Mateo County News.com wrote about him committing crimes against retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.

 “Detective Armando Perjuriously alleged that Mr. Lopez placed a telephone call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.” Detective Armando made that call himself.

No Press Release from the Sheriff’s Office announcing Captain Andy Armando taking over at HMB. Why?

David Silberman, “No Current Factual Dispute based on Evidence.”

By Michael G. Stogner

Attorney David Silberman

Is David Silberman Nuts, No, simply dishonest and his job is to protect the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. Of course there is a DISPUTE, there is NO EVIDENCE provided to prove when Deputy Dominguez turned his Body Worn Camera on and off.

That’s why the AXON LOG RECORDS have not been made public, they will provide the Factual Evidence.

This is just one of the many examples of why I say San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman should be Fired.

“I think I should begin by noting that there is no current factual dispute based on evidence about when Deputy Dominguez turned his camera on and off.” This can be found on Page 11

Half Moon Bay Resident David Eblovi was forced to sue San Mateo County this week because his elected Officials and 2 City Managers didn’t chose too, That is a story all by itself, more on that later.

David Eblovi vs. San Mateo County lawsuit.

Sandra Lee Harman R.I.P. was killed on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay, California, she was shot at 14 times with hollow point bullets, 8 of the bullets struck her body, 3 fatal shots to her BACK, she was shot at while unarmed, with her hands above her head, Three shell casings were moved and relocated at the crime scene.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos informed San Mateo County that SMCSO Deputy David Dominguez’s Body Worn Camera was turned off at the time he fired 11 shots killing Sandra Lee Harman.

Has Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos ever lied to the public before, Yes of course he has, Everybody and their mother knows that.

Very few Citizens have taken the time to Investigate and ask What is the TRUTH about the Homicide by Sheriff Employees of Sandra Lee Harman.

I can tell you David Eblovi is one of the few who did.

San Mateo County Residents should say Thank You, David Eblovi.

HMB Resident doing what City Manager Bob Nesbit and Matthew Chidester Refused to do. Sue the County.

By Michael G. Stogner

I recommended the Half Moon Bay City Council, City Managers and the City Attorney sue Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his attorney San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, for their refusal to provide the AXON LOG RECORDS to the Public. They are the only two people standing in the way of releasing the AXON LOG RECORDS which are bought and paid for by the Taxpayers of San Mateo County. They also contain the data that would confirm the Government’s Story that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez’s Body Worn Camera was in fact turned off when he fired 11 shots at Sandra Lee Harmon on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay. HMB chose not to file the lawsuit.

What do you do when the Government refuses to do their job?

The residents of San Mateo County are responsible for the behavior of their Government, Elected Officials and Appointed Staff.

San Mateo County Residents should be Thanking, David C. Eblovi of Half Moon Bay for doing what the City Government should have done.

The Lawsuit by the Resident.

HMB Council Meeting June 15, 2021, The Jimenez-Rarback Report Item 3A.

By Michael G. Stogner

For meeting of: June 15, 2021

From City Manager Bob Nesbit.

RECOMMENDATION:

Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.

STRATEGIC ELEMENT:

This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.

BACKGROUND:

On May 28, 2021, the City Council received a report from resident David Eblovi entitled The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay. At its June 1, 2021, Council meeting, Council directed staff to agendize an item for the June 15, 2021 meeting to receive a presentation on the report.

DISCUSSION:

Two guest speakers have been invited by Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback to discuss the Report and add their voices to the general conversation about public safety in Half Moon Bay. Dr. Greg Woods will focus comments on ethics and accountability in policing, and Sergeant Carl Tennenbaum SFPD (Ret.), will focus comments on the benefits of civilian responders to low-risk calls. Their bios have been provided to the Council under separate cover and are on file with the City Clerk.

At the beginning of the item, staff recommends that the mayor present protocols and an agenda for how the item will go including approximate times for various sections. The item will conclude with Council deliberation and direction.

ATTACHMENT: The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay

Thank You Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez for getting this Important Conversation on the Agenda. It should have been on in 2014 when Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo Cpinty Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his patrol vehicle. He had ZERO Plan, He Tampered with the Evidence. That is exactly what happened at the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020, NO PLAN and Tampering with the Evidence.

Two Council Members are finally doing what every Elected Official in SMC should have been doing for years.

Half Moon Bay Police Reform Ordinance is Appropriate.

By Michael G. Stogner

City of Half Moon Bay May 18, 2021 Meeting 7:00 PM

Once again the City of Half Moon Bay Council Members are leading San Mateo County Elected Officials & Staff.

The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.

The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.

I asked Mark Melville Candidate for Sheriff 2022 for his opinion, here it is.

First and foremost, Mr. Jiminez is correct in that the public and Council need to meet and discuss what is in the best interest of all city residents, inclusive of public safety services.  I read the proposed ordinance and find it appropriate. There is nothing in the ordinance that prevents the Sheriff’s Office from doing their job. The Council is looking for the betterment of how people are treated once they are in contact with law enforcement, nothing wrong with that. I’m not sure where the Sheriff is coming from when he says the ordinance wouldn’t improve public safety..?  I think the ordinance is actually in favor of policing, in the way the City wants to see it done.  In addition, I believe specific deputies should be assigned to the City for a long period of time. This would allow them to become part of the community and they would clearly understand the community’s expectations. In doing this, it would eliminate the Sheriff’s concern of having deputies working in different jurisdictions operating under different operating procedures.

   
The Sheriff’s statement, “It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract, it’s basically unenforceable,”  which in my opinion is very condescending.  The Sheriff is saying we are going to provide the service to the City the way we see fit, and there is nothing you can do about it, oh until the contract ends in 2022.  In my opinion, the Sheriff should be at the forefront of drafting said ordinance with the city Council, because it’s for the betterment of the community..!!  I’m wishing the City success in achieving the services they desire for their community.  

Every City and Town that receives it’s Law Enforcement Services from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office should be on this ZOOM Meeting Tonight.

Half Moon Bay Police Reform Zoom Meeting May 18, 2021 Item 3D

By Michael G. Stogner

Making Half Moon Bay safe for it’s residents.

Great work Half Moon Bay City Council and Resident David Eblovi, Thank You for leading the entire County in Law Enforcement reform. If it turns out that the only resistance is from Sheriff Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman don’t worry both of those obstacles can be gone with the election of Mark Melville for Sheriff in 2022. That’s 18 months from now.

“It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract,” Bolanos said. “It’s basically unenforceable.”

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos finds those restrictions “problematic” and unenforceable.

Even if the ordinance is approved by the council, it likely wouldn’t have any bearing on the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. Because of the county’s contract with Half Moon Bay, the city can’t legislate changes until the contract is up for renegotiation, Bolanos said. The Sheriff’s Office’s contract with the city doesn’t expire until July 2022

How difficult could it possibly be, HMB has only 2 Deputies on duty per shift.

The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.

The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.

“It’s in our best interest to listen to our community, to see what is going on and if there has to be any kind of changes to make our community safer,” Jimenez said.

While this ordinance would restrict the actions of law enforcement, Rarback believes it would instead give deputies


ORDINANCE NO. C-2021-_______
AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HALF MOON BAY

CALIFORNIA AMENDING CHAPTER 2.33, SPECIFIC POLICING POLICIES

THE CITY COUNCIL OF HALF MOON BAY DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. Findings: The City Council finds and declares as follows:

(a) The municipal code of the City of Half Moon Bay requires periodic updates to reflect current information and changes in law, to provide clarification to the community, and to provide for improved customer service and administration of City business.

(b) Setting a clear understanding for the behavior of law enforcement and peace officers serving the Half Moon Bay community is critical to building and maintaining trust between the community and the City’s law enforcement providers.

(c) Protecting law enforcement officers and the community from undue risk of harm as a result of unnecessary interactions or escalations between armed officers and the public is critical to protecting the public safety of all of Half Moon Bay’s residents, and especially those who may be at statistically high risk of a negative outcome due to mental illness, substance abuse issues, race, housing status, or immigration status.

(d) There is no statutory requirement that the City of Half Moon Bay enforce California Vehicle Code. Therefore the City may, and should, selectively enforce CA Vehicle Code if it results in less pervasive fear or a better standard of living for its people.

(e) It is in the interests of the City of Half Moon Bay for peace officers to have operable and operating video and sound recording devices at all times that they are in public or are engaging in policing activities.

(f) A significant portion of the at-risk population of Half Moon Bay lives in reasonable fear of encounters with law enforcement providers. These fears are justified by the fact that the current law enforcement agency serving greater Half Moon Bay has had numerous recent fatal encounters with individuals who suffered from mental health issues. Therefore, it is in the interests of the public and the officers who serve here to minimize the number and types of such interactions, and when interactions do occur for the City to insure that the interests of all parties are protected to the extent possible.

Section 2. Municipal Code Update (Specific Policing Policies) including revisions to Chapter 2.33 of the Half Moon Bay Municipal Code is adopted as set forth in Exhibit “A” to this Ordinance shown for introduction as deletions in strike through and additions in underline.

Section 3Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council herby declares that it would have passed this Ordinance and adopted this Ordinance and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more section, subsections, sentences, clauses or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.

Section 4Publication. The City Clerk of the City of Half Moon Bay is hereby directed to publish this Ordinance, or the title hereof as a summary, pursuant to Government Code Section 36933, once within fifteen (15) days after its passage in the Half Moon Bay Review, a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Half Moon Bay.

Section 5Effective date. This Ordinance shall take effect and be in force on the thirtieth (30th) day from and after its final passage.

INTRODUCED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Half Moon Bay, California,

Held on the 18th day of May, 2021, by the following vote:
Ayes, Councilmembers: __________________________________
Noes, Councilmembers: __________________________________

An open letter to San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Every Resident of San Mateo County should be asking the same Question.

This Open Letter was published today in the Half Moon Bay Review.

Nov 25, 2020 

Dear San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos,

As you are well aware, your deputies wear a Body Worn Camera system whenever they are on patrol. The taxpayers of San Mateo County bought these camera systems for your deputies so that in the case of contentious incidents, like one here in Half Moon Bay on May 5, we would be able to review for ourselves what actually happened; this as opposed to simply being given a narrative from your office with no way to validate its authenticity.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any video for the May 5 shooting of Sandra Harmon from the deputy who initiated the encounter and who fired the bulk (11 out of 14) of shots at Harmon, including the fatal shot to her back. Your office says this is because he turned off his camera before approaching the RV behind Pasta Moon (against procedure) and, oops, we’re sorry about that. You haven’t even bothered to give us a reason his mobile camera and audio was “off” as well.

I’d like to believe you. I’d like to believe the deputy’s version of events. But as someone famous once said: Trust, but verify. As it turns out we actually can verify at least one part of your story — whether the BWC was in fact turned off by the deputy prior to the encounter. The company that makes the cameras and hosts the video files also keeps a log file for every camera, basically forever, allowing a review of the status of any given camera at any given time.

Thus we, the public and your employers, can know if the statement that the cameras were off is in fact true or false, and your office has control of the file that will enlighten us.

Yet you refuse to do so. Not less than four Public Records Act requests, including one from the city of Half Moon Bay itself, have been rebuffed by your attorneys. Most curiously, if the video confirms your version of events, then it would seem to be in your interest to release it to the public at the earliest possible opportunity. Yet you have not done this.

Which makes most people wonder what you are hiding?

I’m not writing to ask you for the log file again. You’ve already refused quite stridently in previous requests. Instead, I’m writing this letter to ask you firmly but respectfully to provide the entire community, here in the Opinion page of the Review, an answer as to why you won’t release the log files.

Please don’t say they are confidential. They are not. On footage from other BWC in use that day you released the actual video. If the video the cameras record isn’t confidential, then how can you possibly argue that a simple file with numbers and times that indicate the status of the cameras at any time is confidential?

Please don’t say you don’t want to set a bad precedent. That would be an insult to the communities you serve.

Please just tell us the truth and tell us why you won’t release the log file to the public.

Thank you in advance for your prompt response to this message.

David Eblovi lives in Half Moon Bay.

By Michael G. Stogner

They would have already sent their individual e-mails to Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair supporting the September 15, 2020 Unanimous vote by the City of Half Moon Bay Council to refer the May 5, 2020 Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by Sheriff Deputies, requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorneys Investigation.

The Public is also welcome to e-mail Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020, The Eblovi Investigation Presentation at the 27:30 mark in video clearly identifies 3 Spent Shell Casings and 2 Bullet Holes that were omitted from SMC Sheriff, District Attorney Official Reports. The 3 Spent Shell Casings were then moved (Tampering with Evidence) to a location that supported the story provided to the Public by the Sheriff, District Attorney, and supported by County Counsel. There was a Shootout Ms. Harmon fired first both Deputies were fearful for their lives they knew she was going to kill them etc.

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020

Redwood City Leaders would have already made sure the their Police Department did NOT maintain two separate Arrests Logs which they have been aware of for many years.

RWC Police Logs 2 sets

They would also make sure their Police Department does NOT Violate San Mateo County’s Domestic Violence Protocol. Or their own for that matter.

SMCSO Lt. Kristina Bell 911 D.V. Call

James MaGee 17.5 hour D.V. Swat standoff

San Mateo County Residents should compare the James MaGee case with the Pacifica killing of Errol Chang by the Swat Team who got tired of waiting after a couple of hours. Errol was going nowhere he was located in a tiny home, he was a threat to nobody. Errol Chang R.I.P. was not a former Redwood City Police Officer, that is one big difference.

One thing everyone can do at this moment is contact the Attorney General’s Office and express your support for an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Death of Sandra L. Harmon, the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office for Criminal Conduct. Tampering with Evidence and request the AXON LOG RECORDS of the Entire Event. There were 14 Spent Shell Casings recovered NOT 11 that Steve Wagstaffe repeatedly discussed with the Public during the September 15, 2020 Zoom meeting above.

All San Mateo County Elected Official should have already sent their e-mails. E-mail Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair (Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov)

If they haven’t the residents should ask them, WHY?
