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.
It was the City Attorney Rosemarie Labog Zimmerman who finally released the names of the Four Police Officers Involved In the Homicide of Roger Allen who was killed on April 7, 2021. Her Press Release dated April 29, 2021 that’s 23 days after the Homicide by the Daly City Police Department. Who authorized the City Attorney to release the names? District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said that Police Chief Patrick Hensley could release the Officers names anytime, but is that true? He is an At Will Employee he might not be authorized to release those names. Who is his boss? Is it Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager? Lets see his employment contract.
An administrative investigation by an impartial outside investigator will also be conducted. Nobody is asking for an Administrative Investigation. Everybody knows an Administrative Investigation is useless.
City Attorney Rosemarie Labog Zimmerman, City Manager Shawnna Maltbie, Mayor Juslyn Manalo, are all responsible for withholding the names of the four Police Officers for 23 days. Why? What was gained by that? Did it create more or less Public Trust with the residents?
Here are the names: Officer Rosa Brenes, Lieutenant Michael Brennan, Officer Nicholas McCarthy and Officer Cameron Newton.
The naming of Police Officers involved in a Critical Incident is the absolute Minimum Standard San Mateo County Residents should accept from all Law Enforcement. That should happen within 24 hours.
Do Police Officers and top Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County lie to the Public? Of course they do. Do they always trash the memory and reputation of the person they just killed? Of course they do.
Chinedu V. Okobi Killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae less than 8 miles from where Roger Allen was Killed. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied about Chinedu within a few hours and left the lies on SMC Website for 5 months. SMCSO Sergeant Irfan Zaidi filed a completely False Police Report lying about ordering the removal of the handcuffs before the 8 minutes of chest compressions took place on the deceased.
Sandra Lee Harmon Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd received the unedited BWC Video within 24 hours of the Homicide. Boyd went along with the lies Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe promoted. What they all knew was Sandra was shot 8 times, 3 fatal shots in her back, She was shot at while she was unarmed and her hands were above her head. 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering). Sheriff Bolanos, D.A. Wagstaffe, The Investigators, County Counsel David Silberman, were all ok with the above facts by omitted from the Government story and the unverified statement that Deputy Dominguez turned off his BWC before the homicide occurred.
From the bottom Ms. Zimmerman’s Press release: As reported previously, the City requests that anyone with information relevant to this incident to please call the District Attorney’s Office, Chief Inspector William Massey at (650) 363‐4883.
I would just like to point out that William Massey is Not San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector.
San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector is John Warren and has been for many years.
John Warren is a 26 year Daly City Police Officer (retired)
So getting back to the Elected Officials and Staff of Daly City, What was their plan and why did they go along with Terrible Idea of not disclosing the names of the Involved officers. The public knows that Police Officers will kill people in the line of duty, that is part of the job. The public expects Elected Officials and Staff to do their job, Not help cover up anything.
What caused 4 Daly City Police Officers to be at a disabled truck (flat tire) in the first place? Who was the first Officer on the scene? Which Officer fired her/his weapon twice into an occupied vehicle? How is it possible this entire event lasted only 16 minutes before the deceased was transported from the scene. That has got to be a Worlds Record.
What we know today 27 days later.
Roger Allen R.I.P. was shot and killed in Daly City by somebody on April 7, 2021
The Attorney General of the State of California Rob Bonta should Investigate this homicide, That’s not going to happen. Daly City has lost all credibility the Staff is Responsible, Look to the City Managers.
Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie remains silent. It’s been 24 days since somebody from her Police Department killed Roger Allen. Each City in San Mateo County is responsible for the behavior of their Police Department. I now know that Mayor Juslyn Manalo has no authority over her Police Chief Patrick Hensley because she said several times in the April 26, 2021 Zoom meeting that she had asked the Chief for those names. She never said what his response was, she also said the names would be release Wednesday the 28th but that did not happen. So that leaves City Manager Shawnna Maltbie this is exactly why you have a City Manager in the first place, One person who is Responsible for the Police Department besides the Police Chief. Dave and Bill could have answered my e-mail in a minute they both know the answer they chose not to.
The Maltbie Family is San Mateo County Government which is “Those Who Matter.” Can anyone else think of one family that has four members involved in SMC Government, Jeff Maltbie son of John Maltbie is the City Manager of San Carlos, Shawnna Maltbie married to Jeff Maltbie, and Jayme Ackemann daughter of John Maltbie was a SamTrans Official during the Fraud non Investigation by the SMCDA’s Office. From her Twitter account: I said it. And I meant it. Writer RWC Climate Magazine:
Any reasonable person would know that Shawnna Maltbie should have disclosed the names of the four Daly City Police Officers Involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen within 24 hours of April 7, 2021.
Any reasonable person would know that Shawnna Maltbie should have FIRED Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley within 24 hours of this Homicide.
I sent this e-mail to the President of the Board of Supervisors and one of his top aides for two reasons.
David Canepa used to be the Mayor of Daly City and he would certainly know the answer.
Bill Silverfarb use to be a former newspaper reporter and editor who works in county government now. Worked for the San Mateo Daily Journal for 17 years and if he didn’t know the answer I was sure he could find out that answer in no time.
Michael Stogner <firstname.lastname@example.org>To:Dave Canepa, Bill SilverfarbFri, Apr 23 at 6:15 PM
Hello Dave and Bill, I know you two would know the answer to this question. Steve Wagstaffe has told me the Police Chief of Daly City could identify the 4 Police Officers involved in the death of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021. Of course naming them doesn’t mean that any wrong doing or crime has been committed. As you know it’s been 17 days and the Police Chief has chosen his behavior.
I’m just curious does City Manager Shawnna Maltbie have the sole authority to fire Patrick Hensley?
Does the Mayor have that sole authority or does the City Council have that Authority?
Thank You Michael G. Stogner
The Media and “Those Who Matter” Modern Media’s Efforts to make a story out of a non story Yesterday’s News by tomorrow e-mails back and forth between San Mateo County’s top FOUR Law Enforcement Officials.
Mayor Juslyn Manalo promised the April 26, 2021 ZOOM Meeting with over 130 participants the names of the 4 Police Officers Involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen would be released on Wednesday through a Press Release. That did NOT Happen. As a matter of fact the names have not been released per a Press Release period. Somebody sent a scoop to a news media favorite.
Who from Daly City released these names that Police Chief Patrick Hensley knew on April 7, 2021.
It wasn’t City Manager Shawnna Maltbie.
It wasn’t Assistant Manager Stephen Stolte.
It wasn’t Mayor Juslyn Manalo
Here are the names:
Lt. Michael Brennan Investigation Commander was a Swat Team Leader in 2012-2017.
Now today 23 days after the Homicide of Roger Allen by DCPD Officers we now have a Ruger instead of a Glock. And now it is a BB gun instead of a FAKE gun, whatever that is.
Ruger vs. Glock is a Big Deal.
Remember from start to finish was 16 minutes according to Hensley and Wagstaffe. When I say finish I mean in the ambulance and it left the crime scene.
What was Lt. Michael Brennan Investigation Commander doing at a disabled truck with a flat tire “we are here to assist you” incident?
Who released the names? Why wasn’t that done on day one, and why wasn’t it done on the ZOOM Meeting.
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.
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?
In late 2015 Rachel Amanda Quintana did what most of us hope we would have the courage to do. She went to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sub Station in Half Moon Bay to file an official complaint about Sheriff Deputies abusive interactions involving her two brothers. She should get the Best Sister Award if there is such an award.
What she got instead was arrested at her home a couple of days later. The ARRESTING party was lead by Sergeant Michael E. Otte, and included Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney and Deputy Jose M. Velasquez. 66.66% of the arresting party lied and made false statements.
San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Kostielney filed A supplemental report after the arrest in which he stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.”
What he was declaring was that Sergeant Micheal E. Otte did NOT Video the Arrest with his personal Cellphone which in fact was a lie and he knew it.
It’s one thing to lie in an Official Police Report It’s a whole different ball game to lie under oath on the Witness Stand in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom which is exactly what Sergeant Michael E. Otte did on January 5, 2017. Who was aware of the Perjury committed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant in a Superior Court in San Mateo County. The list is long, I won’t bother listing all but at the top was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Her Bailiff who should be acknowledged for doing what we all expect of our law enforcement employees.
We know what happened to Sergeant Michael E. Otte, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos gave him a Retirement Party.
How many more Brave Citizens/Residents of Half Moon Bay came forward to report abusive behavior by the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. The City Council should have a data base available to the public to protect the public.
Rachel Amanda Quintana paid the price, years in the criminal justice system, with all charges to be dismissed quietly.
What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.
Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.
In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.
The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.
They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.
They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.
The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.
Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.
San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.
David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?
Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.
The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.
Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.
After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.
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…!!!!

I’m sure most of the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents don’t know who John Ullom is or haven’t heard anything about him. If you have read anything about him by Mark Simon, Jon Mays Editor, or Jerry Lee Owner of the San Mateo Daily Journal. You might ask What did John Ullom do to them to cause such a dislike?
John Ullom is Good Human Being an American, He is the guy you want as your neighbor. San Mateo County Supervisors should give him the Citizen of the Decade Award if there is one. They won’t of course.
Sandra Lee Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California. She was shot at 14 times, her body was struck 8 times, 3 of the 8 shots were fatal, all 3 fatal shots were in her back. Ms. Harmon was shot at while her hands were above her head and her back was towards Deputy Dominguez. The unloaded shotgun was on the ground in plain view at that moment.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020. He stated several times that 11 shots were fired and 11 spent shell casings were recovered.
That’s Simply Impossible.14 Spent Shell Casings were Recovered.
This is where my favorite saying applies: Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.
Here is just one small example of what John Ullom has done as a CITIZEN.
Sandra Harmon Was Fatally Shot In Her Back While Her Hands Were Above Her Head And The good Old Boys Cover Up
Our District Attorney, Mr. Wagstaffe has offered a “guess” as to how Sandra Harmon received three fatal shots in her back.: — https://youtu.be/Vmij2TSFfR4
Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” is that Sandra was shot during the third volley of shots. Deputy Dominguez testified he thought he shot her during the second volley. Wagstaff ignores the Deputy’s testimony and the video obtained from another Deputy’s body cam.
In this short clip, you will see Sandra Harmon’s hands above her head and her back to the Deputy who is firing at her. You will see her gun hit the ground. The Deputy who shot her testified that was one of the reasons he thought he had shot Sandra Harmon during the second volley. You will also see at least one shot was fired after Sandra Harmon dropped her shotgun: — https://youtu.be/TT6zIH4PAYg
Here is the video that shows when Mr. Wagstaff “guesses” Sandra Harmon was fatally shot in the back by SMCSO Deputies. Warning, very disturbing: — https://youtu.be/lsk2oORWVH0
Question for SMC Coroner, Mr. Foucrault, do the entry wounds in Sandra Harmon’s back indicate anything about the trajectory of the bullets that hit her? Does the evidence show a near perpendicular trajectory as would be expected if Deputy Dominguez’s testimony is correct? Or was the angle of entry shallow as would be the case if Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” was correct? Do the wounds have abrasion collars that indicate the angle of entry? — https://what-when-how.com/forensic-sciences/evaluation-of-gunshot-wounds/
The body cam video from the Deputy who shot at Sandra Harmon while her hands were in the air and her back to him, is missing. The logs from his body cam are being withheld. No effort to understand how Sandra came to be shot in her back has been undertaken. This is WRONG. Sandra Harmon’s life mattered. And so do the lives of her family who deserve to know the truth.
At everybody on the BCC list. Nobody in charge, other than the City Council of Half Moon Bay, gives a damn about how Sandra Harmon came to be fatally shot in her back while her hands were above her head. The press is not going to investigate. The ACLU isn’t interested. BLM folks aren’t going to protest. The only hope of the truth being told…..is us.
Fatal shots in the back provoked the LA Coroner to ask for an independent analysis in the interests of transparency.
