This is the City response after tabling the Jimenez-Rarback Report last week. Three of the council members want more discussion from the public, more listening sessions. They don’t think 7 years since Yanira Serrano Garcia’s Homicide by a sole San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy with No Plan on how to handle the Non Emergency Medical 911 call by her brother Tony Serrano is enough to take corrective action. Of course it is.
The Jimenez-Harback Report called for the creation of a Chief of Police for Half Moon Bay. A position with authority that answers to the City council. That seems like a strange request since Half Moon Bay has Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez who has attended many recent Zoom meetings he is identified as the Chief of Police of Services.
Joaquin Jimenez and Harvey Rarback have discovered what many in San Mateo County Government have known for a long time. The city has absolutely No say in how Sherif Carlos G. Bolanos provides Law Enforcement/Public Safety Services.
The Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 is a perfect example. Sheriff Bolanos told the world there was a Shootout and Ms. Harmon fired first at Deputy Dominguez. Of course if that Official Statement were true nobody would blame Deputy Dominguez for returning fire causing the death of Ms. Harmon. He told his Sergeant he fired 5-6 rounds. He actually fired 11 rounds, He failed to mention he fired at her first, and also while she was unarmed with her hands above her head and her back towards him. Ms. Harmon was shot three times in the back all Fatal. He also failed to mention he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera.
The AXON LOG RECORDS keep a precise record of all devices involved in a Critical Incident, example when they were turned on/off.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman are the lead opposition for making the AXON LOG RECORDS Public.
Those Records would prove the Government’s Official Statement to be true, Why won’t they release them?
The City of Half Moon Bay has requested those records and have been denied.
The Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting is set for June 24, 2021 5:00 P.M. at the Library
I recommend Half Moon Bay Invite Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Rachel A. Quintana and Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte to attend a future meeting.
Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.
There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.
This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.
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.
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.
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.
This is exactly why I say Joaquin Jimenez should run for District 3 Supervisor of San Mateo County in the next election.
Of course the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies would pull HMB Councilman Joaquin Jimenez over on his bicycle on Main Street. It’s more than racial profiling, It’s sending him a message, you might be an Elected Official in San Mateo but I am in charge of the Law Enforcement in your Hometown 24/7 so get used to it.
Bolanos said the deputy recognized Jimenez as a city councilman, Of Course he recognized him.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knows that Joaquin is a threat to him, and is sending a message.
Every reasonable person in San Mateo County knows that Sheriff Bolanos is a Liar.
2007 Operation Dollhouse, He lied.
2010 Whistleblower complaint Gross Misconduct at SMCSO Porn and Violent Rape Video shared among top 45 Male employees. Results New Servers at the County.
2015 Pumpkin Festival SMCSO Gang Task Force assaulted Joaquin and threaten his career as a Juvenile Probation Officer with SMC. They followed through he no longer has that career.
He and other family members were stopped and photographed by Sheriff’s deputies during the 2015 Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival. At the time, then-Undersheriff Bolanos said the men were followed because some wore T-shirts that memorialized a gang member and that they were photographed because of what he said was a heated exchange between Jimenez and a security guard.
This is another example of Carlos Bolanos Lying, It was not a Security Guard, It was a Gang Task Force Sheriff Deputy.
2015 Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel A. Quintana arrested and Videoed by San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte, He Otte Lied under Oath in Judge Lisa Novak’s courtroom January 5, 2017. This arrested occurred right after she went to the Sheriff Sub Station to report harassment of her two brothers by Deputies. Judge Novak found Otte committed PERJURY Sheriff Bolanos gave him a retirement party.
2018 Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six SMCSO, Sheriff Bolanos omitted the sixth Employee Involved, CSO Joseph Gonzales, and lied in his Press Release about Chinedu running in and out of traffic and Immediately assaulting Deputy Wang when he exited his patrol vehicle.
2020 Half Moon Bay Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon by SMCSO Employees. Sheriff Bolanos Lied about the Shootout, Omitted the fact she was shot in the back three times, shot at while hands were above her head unarmed, and the moving of three spent shell casings, and two bullet holes located where there should be NONE. He provided the STORY of Body Worn Camera not being turned on and has refused to provide the Axon Log Records that would prove his statement to be true or false.
2021 Kaylan Freeman arrest and charged Rape of Girls, Sheriff Bolanos Lied in Press Release about when they first became aware of him. The Sheriff Office Served him a subpoena at the exact house in 2014 for the same type of crime.
“Racial profiling is happening,” Jimenez said. “Even when we ride our bicycles.”
“This is exactly what I’m talking about,” Jimenez said. “When people ask about coming forward, well, I’m coming forward. This is what happened to me. I was riding a bicycle like everyone does on Main Street. But I’m the one getting pulled over.”
Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbitt has had over a year to put in the Sheriff Officers Complaint Line that he claims he is so interested in providing to the residents. Bob Nesbitt is the Last Person on earth I would recommend to call with that type of complaint.
Carlos G. Bolanos is not only the Sheriff of San Mateo County he is also the Police Chief of Half Moon Bay.
When was the last bicycle stop conducted by SMCSO in Half Moon Bay?
Roger Allen a Black man was killed by somebody on the Daly City Police Department on April 7, 2021. He was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in a residential neighborhood.
The reason I say he was killed be somebody is that is all we know today 48 days after the Homicide by Law Enforcement. Who is responsible for this information Blackout? I say ALL San Mateo County Elected Officials and Staff. They are all fine being silent for the last 48 days.
Of course the one person who is responsible is Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager of Daly City.
Remember Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd.
Remember why Colin Kaepernick took a knee?
“We are scared as Black people in America,” “Black men, Black women, Black kids, we are terrified.”LeBron James
“It’s just so sad … we’ve been hung, we’ve been shot.” “It’s amazing to me why we keep loving this country, and the country does not love us back.” Doc Rivers
What makes “Those Who Matter” in San Mateo County think they can get away with this behavior?
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.

Defendant Juan Pablo Lopez Jury Trial Day 6 of Motions, Judge Leland Davis III, Courtroom 2H
Hon. Judge Joseph Scott has been out of the Courtroom on a Medical Emergency since April 1, 2021.
Judge Davis should have an update in the morning.
A little background I call this the San Mateo County District Attorney Supervisor of the Inspectors William Massey case. Remember back to 2014 Sheriff Deputy Juan Lopez decided to offer the residents a choice for Sheriff in 2014.
William Massey did not like that idea and contacted the Employer of Juan’s finance and told him to Fire her. He refused do it so of course William Massey contacted him again with a more forceful demand to fire her.
DDA Kimberly Perrotti doesn’t want William Massey on the witness stand, I don’t blame her.
Anyhow it’s been 6.5 years, there is more than one way to destroy a person, when the D.A. Office is used as a weapon, False Charges like the Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to an inmate. What happened to those charges? You would think your D.A. shouldn’t falsely charge Who’s going to know, or Who’s going to care?
What did the DSA do for Deputy Lopez? Nothing That’s strange.
By the time I had received these documents 11 years ago, I had already arrested a prominent Attorney on the 7th floor of the Courthouse and turned him over to the San Mateo County Sheriff Office April 3, 2002 9:05 AM, Don Horsley was Sheriff and Greg Munks was the UnderSheriff at that time. In March of 2007 I had personally requested Sheriff Greg Munks and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos to resign for being caught and detained by the FBI inside a single family residence that had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor inside. The house was located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada. The FBI Sting was named Operation Dollhouse. The date was April 21, 2007. I’ve served as a jury foreperson in San Mateo County where the District Attorney’s Office Falsely charged a Marine with a crime they knew there was No Evidence that he committed such a crime. What would allow the D.A. to do such a thing? It’s simple San Mateo County Residents don’t know about it the Newspapers don’t think that is Newsworthy. Even if they did know and they were outraged, What could they do about it.
Eliminating Corruption in San Mateo County should be pretty simple right? “See Something say Something” That is the Government’s Message. Say something to Who? Then what happens?
What happens when SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Lies? Currently Nothing.
What happens when District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Lies? Currently Nothing
What happens when the Sheriff PIO issues a False Press/News Release? 10/03/208 Currently Nothing
What happens when SMCSO Sgt. Irfan Zaidi filed a false police report dated 10/22/2018 in the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide? Currently Nothing.
What happens when SMCSO Sgt Michael Otte committed Perjury in Rachel Amanda Quintana of HMB criminal case in front of Judge Lisa Novak? Bolanos let him Retire. Did the City Managers and City Council know what he did? Were they informed by the Chief, Sheriff Bolanos, SMCCC Attorney David Silberman, Judge Lisa Novak? They all knew he committed a crime.
What happens when the District Attorney’s Office uses its power and authority as a Weapon, Destroy somebody Financially, Emotionally or even causing Death. X Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case is in court on May 11, 2021 He was arrested in 2014 remember Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to and inmate. Those charges were False, what happens….Nothing that’s 6.5 years of not being able to be employed plus cost to defend.
What happens when Barbara Bonilla Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Employee, his 2018 Political Campaign Manager was escorted out of her office as the Executive Director of SAL Sheriff Activities League. She was Investigated for Embezzlement and Money Laundering at SAL. Did any of the Elected Officials who knew say a word Nope. I was the first to report about it by 30 days. Why? Hint “Those Who Matter” She is being charged by the A.G. Office.
I recommend replacing all Elected Officials and Staff who are on the “Those Who Matter” TEAM with Good Human Beings. A Countywide Public Data base where anyone can report misconduct or criminal behavior by Those Who Matter.
Daly City’s recent Homicide by Police of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021 is a perfect example of City Manager Shawnna Maltbie failure. A perfect example of the Maltbie Family Government Management 101 I’m not surprised. Keep the public in the dark.
I have always recommended for Police Officers to be removed from Schools, and I have never supported children being involved with San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL). If you are a parent of a child or you know one please share this article with them and then at least they can make an informed decision regarding the risk vs. reward for their child being involved with SAL. Also any city council who is contributing to SAL stop ASAP until they get all questions answered.
For those of you who are wondering what did I do with this information. I provided it to a Supervisor of San Mateo County. My main concern was protecting the Female Deputy’s Identity and Career. I think a fair question to ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Supervisor Don Horsley is what happened besides the Sheriff Office replacing the Servers. Nothing
Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie and Assistant City Manager Steven Stolte have made sure the public knows very little about what really happened. Both refused to identify the four Daly City Police officers who were finally named after Concerned Citizens continued to ask, request and even demand the names be released.
Of all people from the Elected Officials and Staff of Daly City, the City Attorney Rose Zimmerman released the names on April 29, 2021. Why the City Attorney and not the City Manager? Why 23 days after the Homicide?
What makes the Elected Officials and Staff of the largest City in San Mateo County want to behave this way, especially at this time in American History. Who did Shawnna Maltbie consult with about the secrecy plan of action to Not Inform the public of even the most basic facts involving the Homicide of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021?
Most likely her husband Jeff Maltbie the City Manager of San Carlos, and son of John Maltbie the former Manager of San Mateo County. Did they really think this information was not going to come out and be made public.
I’ve always thought if you just had good human beings in Elected Positions and Staff running the governments that would solve most of the problems. For example on the April 26, 2021 ZOOM meeting controlled by Shawnna Maltbie and Stephen Stolte the 130 Concerned Citizens all wanted the names released that night. Shawanna and Stephen didn’t. You could have replaced all of Daly City Government with any one of the 130 Concerned Citizens on that Zoom meeting and complete change would have occurred on the spot.
Here is what we know/Don’t know 30 days after the Homicide of Roger Allen a Black man sitting in the passenger seat a disabled truck in Daly City.
He was shot and Killed by somebody. What is the name of the Officer who fired her/his weapon?
One of the four Daly City Police Officers was first on the scene. What is the name of this officer?
Which Officer told the occupants “We are here to assist you.”
Daly City Police Press Release says “1 shot was fired.”
SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe says “two shots were fired.” How is that possible that your Police Department and the District Attorneys Office have different number of shots fired.
What is the name of the Officer who according to the governments statement “reached into the vehicle and wrestled?”
Who trained the Officers to do that, “Reaching into a vehicle and wrestle for control of a gun?”
What is the name of the Officer/s who provided life saving measures, what were those measures, and for how many minutes were they applied?
What is the name of the ambulance provider? Is it AMR?
What time were they called to the scene? What time did they arrive? What time did they depart?
Daly City, California is no Minneapolis, or Columbus Ohio, Shawnna Maltbie is the reason why. She is the “Those Who Matter” Gatekeeper of the Information that the public and the family of Roger Allen R.I.P. deserve.
