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?

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/
Daly City Council and City Manager Shawnna Maltbie What are YOU doing? Roger Allen Homicide by DCPD.
Thank You Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for finally not Killing a man in San Carlos the other day. What brought your deputies to him in the first place? It seems like he knew his rights and your deputies finally did the right thing and left him alone. It’s a shame you chose not to do that before now.
Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P. June 3, 2014 would be alive today if you had a plan.
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. October 3, 2018 would be alive today if you had a plan.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. May 5, 2020 would be alive today if you had a plan.
NEWS RELEASE Incident Date and Time: April 30, 2021 @ 2:26 pm
Location: 500 block of Quarry Road, San Carlos Summary: Deputies Added ECIT Resources and Training has Positive Outcome in
Disengagement of Person in Crisis During Welfare Check.
On Friday, April 30, 2021, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 500 block of Quarry Road in San Carlos to conduct a welfare check on an individual who was reported as possibly experiencing a mental health crisis. While enroute, deputies learned the subject was also in possession of a knife. Deputies staged a safe distance away and made phone contact with several parties at the scene, including the individual’s social worker.
Deputies learned the individual did not make any threats, commit any crimes, and no one was being held against their will. The individual had no interest in speaking with his social worker in person or with deputies on the phone. Approximately one hour after arriving on scene, deputies determined it was in everyone’s best interest that they disengage and leave the scene without forcing contact with the individual. Deputies followed-up with the individuals social worker the following day and learned the individual had stabilized and was no longer experiencing a mental health crisis.
This response highlights the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s Enhanced Crisis Intervention Training program (ECIT) and how our crisis response has aligned with recent law changes (California AB-392) as well as community expectations. Unless there is imminent danger or threats to others, deputies will conduct pre-assessments, gather as much information as possible, and form a plan for de-escalation prior to attempting contact with individual in crisis.
We understand the mere presence of uniformed deputies can escalate situations, and we will utilize time and distance whenever possible to assess the best course of action for each situation. In cases like this, by modifying our response and not making immediate contact to check the welfare of an individual in crisis, we maintain the option to disengage, which in some cases, provides the individual the opportunity to self-de-escalate.
In many cases where mental illness is involved, crisis communication and verbal de-escalation can prove to be challenging because their disability may affect their ability to understand or comply with commands from deputies. For this reason, disengagement in these cases is sometimes the best de- escalation option. Deputies can then refer the case to the Sheriff’s Office Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, who will then form a plan to contact the subject at a later time if appropriate, to assess for resources.

The City Manager is responsible for the Police Departments behavior. She is also responsible for the Agenda Items on council meetings and when Public Comment takes place during the meetings etc. Most cities in San Mateo County have the Public Comment at the beginning of the meeting and the time allowed to speak is in some cities is 3 minutes. There is a Zoom link for the meeting and that is published on the City Website for everyone interested to use. At the time of the meeting the Concerned Citizens simply go to that Zoom link and they are in the meeting.
Shawnna Maltbie likes to have a little more control on the Concerned Citizens speaking their minds. She makes them register in advance for a Public Meeting including giving your home address? That’s got to give most people that welcoming feeling, that Government really wants to listen to you. Also she likes the Public Comment to be at the END of the council meetings, that really helps in having fewer comments to have to listen to. Council meetings last for hours. April 26, 2021 for example had over 130 Concerned Citizens who pre registered to speak about Roger Allen’s Homicide.
Government (I mean Shawnna) does not like the public to criticize how things are going or to ask the obvious questions. Like why 4 Daly City Police Officers were at a disabled truck with a flat tire in the first place.
“Hello we are the Daly City Police Department we are here to assist you.”
When did DCPD start competing with AAA?
Shawnna Maltbie has refused to inform the public, Who was the first Officer on the scene?
Who was the Officer that allegedly reached into a vehicle and wrestle with Roger Allen R.I.P.?
How many shots do you say were fired?
Who did you communicate with to determine your actions to withhold all of the Transparency in this Homicide?
Was it your husband Jeff Maltbie City Manager of San Carlos? Was it your Father in Law John Maltbie former San Mateo County Manager? Your sister in law Jayme Ackemann (Maltbie)?
Daly City Government is a perfect example of the Maltbie Family 101 How to run SMC Government.
It has been 34 days since Roger Allen R.I.P. was shot and killed in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in the afternoon in Daly City.
That is all San Mateo County Residents know to this day, we do know the names of the four Officers involved, Big deal.
What did Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester and SMCSO Chief Saul Lopez do to make sure the Official Government Statement from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemary Blankswade, Lieutenant Stephanie Josephson and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe “Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera,” was in fact a TRUE Statement?
The sad answer is very little. The question is Why? Why aren’t they as interested as Concerned Citizens?
It’s really SIMPLE, the AXON LOG RECORDS will verify the Government’s official statement. Who is obstructing the release of the AXON LOG RECORDS? Answer San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman. Why?
Below the Video created by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that was made public 41 days after the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon this False statement is made, The incident involved a woman, armed with a shotgun, who fired at a deputy. When did she fire? Where was she when this occurred? How many shots did she fire?
There is no mention of the Three Fatal Shots into Sandra’s back, the fact that she was shot at while unarmed and hands were above her head while her back was facing Deputy Dominguez, or the fact that Three shell casings were moved to support the governments official story.
A reasonable person would know that those are important facts the public should have been told by Sheriff Bolanos.
“Our goal in releasing these videos, while still early in the investigation, is to provide our community with as much information as possible when we have a tragic incident such as this,” Bolanos said.
Is that a true/honest statement? Remember the Video was released 41 days after Sandra L. Harmon was killed.
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.
Update: The 1:30 PM turned out to be 4:10 PM Lasted about 45 seconds Continued.
Next Court Date is June 9, 2021 at 1:30PM
Today at 1:30 PM Courtroom 2A Phone number 1-206-279-9589 code 599028
Barbara Bonilla was the Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League. She was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. She was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for Sheriff 2018. She was President of California PAL, and high ranking member of National PAL association.
She was investigated for Embezzlement and Money Laundering.
She is being Prosecuted by the Attorney Generals Office, who has said very little publicly about the case.
Shawnna Maltbie is the City Manager of Daly City, which is one of 20 Cities and Towns in San Mateo County, California. She is the reason Daly City Police Department doesn’t have Body Worn Cameras at least since 2019. She is the reason the names of the Four Daly City Police Officers who were involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen a Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck 21 days ago. That’s right Shawnna Maltbie has refused to identify the Police Officers who work for her. She is also responsible for the ZOOM Meeting which took place on April 26, 2021, she was on that meeting that had over 130 members of the public including Family Members of the Deceased Roger Allen. She is responsible for placing Public Comment at the end of the Agenda instead of at the beginning that is a neat little trick to make the public suffer by waiting several hours to speak and it is the easiest way to suppress Those Who Don’t Matter the general public. She also added a residential address requirement to the register in advance trick. Why would the public who is her employer have to sign up in advance to speak at a Public Zoom meeting? It’s not like the Maltbie Family hasn’t been running the Government Meetings in San Mateo County for many years.
During the April 26, 2021 Zoom Meeting, the majority of speakers asked for the names of the Four Daly City Police Officers to be publicly identified. That is a very Low Bar to get over. There wasn’t one speaker who didn’t want that to be accomplished and they wanted it to be done NOW at that meeting.
Shawnna Maltbie wife of San Carlos City Manager Jeff Malbite who is the son of John Maltbie who was San Mateo County Manager for years. Shawnna had a different plan, She was going to allow Daly City to name those 4 DCPD Officers in a Press Release today Wednesday April 28, 2021. Why?
Those Who Matter are not bothered by the public being upset with them, they control the data, they control the media, they control who gets elected, who gets investigated, who gets criminally charged, who gets county money for special programs.
Today is different for Those Who Matter.
Shawnna Maltbie, Stephen Stolte, and Patrick Hensley are the first 3 Employees who should be FIRED Today.
Name the Officers Involved in Roger Allen’s Homicide Now. Any Elected Official and Staff should be asked what their position is on releasing the names of Officers involved in Homicides of Civilians the day of the Critical Incident.
Every Elected Official and Staff member in Daly City is on the Wrong side of this one. I’m not surprised.
Roger Allen a 44 year old Black man was killed by somebody with a gun on April 7, 2021 while he was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in a residential neighborhood in Daly City. That was 20 days ago. Last night the Daly City Government held a zoom meeting for the first time for the Outraged public to speak about it. I don’t know the exact number of participants on that zoom meeting but it was well over 125.
Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie attended but remained silent, Assistant City Manager Stephen Stolte Hosted the meeting also silent.
I mentioned the Outraged public, I did not mention the Outraged Elected Officials and Staff who are responsible for the behavior of the Daly City Police Department and its officers. The reason I didn’t mention them is because not one of them is Outraged with the killing of a Black man who committed no crime and was killed while sitting in a parked truck.
The demands were pretty consistent “What are the names of the four Daly City Police Officers Involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen?” Who could provide that information? Shawnna Maltbie, Stephen Stolte and Patrick Hensley that’s who. Why wouldn’t those three Employees want what the public wants?
The four Unnamed DCPD Officers idea comes from San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and DCPD Chief Patrick Hensley vague and unbelievable description of what supposedly happened and how Roger Allen ended up dead at the scene.
That was until last night when Talika Fletcher, Roger Allen’s sister mentioned the other police agency officers being protected. What other Police Agency Officers? Is that even a possibility in San Mateo County? Of course it is.
Talika Fletcher and her Aunt Zipora Wright both stated that Talika is being STALKED and Harassed by Law Enforcement. They are in Mourning and must be protected by the Citizens not Law Enforcement.
How is this possible in San Mateo County, the answer is Simple, “Those Who Matter” run the Government. They control criminal Investigations, have the ability to falsely criminally charge Those Who Don’t matter like x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez for the sole purpose of financially destroying him.
What we saw last night was NOT ONE of the people with the Authority and Power to solve, did so. They must be removed in order for San Mateo County to finally get on the right track. Elect Good Human beings is my recommendation.
Those Who Matter
Thank You to all the Concerned Citizens who took the time to be on the Zoom Meeting last night.
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”.
