Update: 9/26/22 All Charges have been dropped in Batmobile-builder Mark Racop case.
Candidate for Congress of the United States Rishi Kumar added to his website September 25, 2022.
Today – I continue to call for all charges to be dropped against Batmobile-builder Mark Racop, still charged(and forced back in court September 30) and made to travel thousands of miles from Indiana for this Friday’s hearing and eventual trial.
Same question for every Elected Official and Candidates for all offices.
This is a civil, not a criminal matter, Everybody and their mother knows this.
We already know what did happen, the main question now is why is this case still ACTIVE?

I will be there in person because Mark Racop has to fly out from Indiana to say two words, Not Guilty in PERSON in San Mateo County County because a Judge has ordered him to appear in person. He is not allowed to appear on ZOOM for this arraignment hearing. Remember he lives and works in Indiana.
Some of you might have heard of this case since ABC 7 Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes broke the story of the July 19, 2022 Search Warrant being served on Mark Racop at his place of business in Indiana by a four man TEAM of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office finest. The plan was to arrest Mark Racop and bring him all the way back to San Mateo County to TEACH HIM and others a lesson about the power of the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Judges, County Counsel and the Supervisors of San Mateo County.
Mark Racop’s case has received worldwide attention because of the Batmobile replica that his company Fiberglass Freaks makes by hand.
The majority of the 22,000 comments made from the 10M VIEWS in 2 months have been similar.
Here are just 2 recent comments:
It’s hard to believe that the Sheriff double down on his stupid actions with a stupid statement that he would ask the same thing of investigators whenever a “Potential Crime” came to his attention. You don’t issue search and arrest warrants for potential crimes, you investigate and come up with some basic evidence to support what your buddy told you. How did a judge get conned into signing these warrants? Did the Sheriff use his friendship with the Judge to influence the warrants? Was the whole story disclosed to the judge? Assuming there was a contract, the purchaser was in breach of contract when he failed to make a timely payment. The consequence of the missed payment was not losing his money or his Batmobile, but merely losing his position in the queue. This is a civil, not a criminal matter.
The sad thing is this is probably the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this sheriff’s corruption. Given that county sheriffs are primarily responsible for property seizures and evictions, there should be an investigation to see if the sheriff misused his authority on behalf of his realtor friend. If so, this story instantly becomes something much bigger and something that should lead to prison sentences for both the sheriff and the realtor.
The Batmobile case has shinned a light on San Mateo County Government when no other case I’m aware of has done. The great news is nobody was Murdered or Executed by the Sheriff’s Office Employees this time.
This behavior is more the norm in San Mateo County, just look at the ret. Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case and the Edais Family vs. Coroner Robert Foucralt case as current examples.
Please check back for updates as to the Status of this case and the Friday In-person hearing, I hope to see you there.
There is only one Candidate for Congress who has demanded the resignation of San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for his most recent actions involving the Batmobile Raid in Indiana on July 19, 2022.
I can tell you that Anna Eshoo, David Canepa, and Kevin Mullin haven’t said Boo about it. WHY
How many of you reading this know that you are responsible for your Governments behavior.
Mark Racop is a part time minister that lives in Indiana, he also owns a small business that makes the 1966 Batmobile car. He is the only person licensed by DC Comics to build that car.
On July 19, 2022 an elite gang of 4 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees lead by SMCSO Lt. Michael Leishman arrived at Mark Racop’s business which is named Fiberglass Freaks, with the intention of Kidnapping the person, and taking possession of a unfinished 1966 Batmobile car and tow it back to Atherton, California.
In order to accomplish this BLACK-OPS MISSION you can just imagine how many San Mateo County Employees, Elected Officials including Judges were involved.
The response most reasonable people say when they first hear about this is “They Can’t Do That”
The FACT is They Did Do That. What are you going to do about it.
There are FOUR Candidates for Congress in this next Election.
Rishi Kumar is the only Candidate I’m aware of who not only CALLED Mark Racop.
Rishi Kumar took time out of his very busy schedule to attend Mark Racop’s August 19, 2022 Court Hearing in Redwood City, California.
San Mateo County News.com is pleased to report that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office finally provided Mark Racop’s Bank in Indiana the document that it needed in order to unfreeze his Bank Account. “Holy sigh of relief” that was like pulling teeth.
The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Batmobile case 22-SF-008723-A | The People of the State of California vs. MARK RACOP
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos should resign!
Nolia Corzo, You are a Candidate for San Mateo County Supervisor District 2, in November Election.
I know you are busy with your campaign, but I can tell you a lot of San Mateo County Residents attended the Friday Court Hearing at 9 AM Courtroom 8B for Mark Racop in Redwood City Superior Court of California to show their support for this small businessman in Indiana who was assaulted and Abused by San Mateo County Law Enforcement Gang IN INDIANA. The Batmobile Case first reported by ABC 7 I-Team Dan Noyes on July 29, 2022.
I have been searching all San Mateo County Candidates for their Official Statement on the Batmobile Case. So far I know of only one.
If you have made a statement I’ll be happy to publish it.
Mark Simon and the SMDJ wrote that on October 29, 2020, almost 2 years ago.
Here we are today August 19, 2022 San Mateo County, California
My questions for Mark Simon and the Advertising Business he writes for.
The Batmobile case Abuse of Power, Abuse of Authority of Law Enforcement case that has more than 5M views, The case where the public is asking for San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to RESIGN, be criminally Charged and lose his PENSION. That case which has a court hearing this morning at 9:00 AM in Courtroom 8B. 22-SF-008723-A | The People of the State of California vs. MARK RACOP
Did Mark Simon or the San Mateo Daily Journal make a public statement on San Mateo County Government actions against a small business owner in Indiana named Mark Racop who happens to be the only person who is licensed to make the 1966 Batmobile Replica? One more fact about Mr. Racop, He is a Minister.
“Riddle me this”
Did Mark Simon or the SMDJ write an article about this story at all?
Did Mark Simon or the SMDJ call Mark Racop either for an interview or to offer support?
Did Mark Simon or the SMDJ request permission of the Court to attend this mornings hearing?
Will Mark Simon or the SMDJ attend Mark Racop’s Court Hearing today as a concerned citizen?
On October 29, 2020 Mark Simon wrote this about Rishi Kumar Candidate for Congress.
A FEW NOTES: Perhaps the goofiest campaign is being run by Saratoga Councilman Democrat Rishi Kumar, who is challenging incumbent Congresswoman Anna Eshoo. If long, rambling, boastful and offensive rhetoric is your thing, look at one of the verbose hit pieces produced by Kumar. My favorite claim is that he reduced crime in Saratoga, which raises so many questions it’s hard to know where to start. Is Rishi Kumar Batman?
I can tell you from my personal experience with Mark Simon, he is an arrogant BULLY, he likes to bully Victims.
Rishi Kumar has personally called and spoke to Mark Racop.
Rishi Kumar has called for San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos to be FIRED.
Rishi Kumar “Free the man’s assets at the soonest opportunity.”
Rishi Kumar plans to be at this mornings Court Hearing for Mark Racop to show his support.
Isn’t funny how the Bully writes about Batman 2 years ago and today the Batmobile case is Shinning a light on San Mateo County’s Corruption and Organized Crime.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe “My prosecutor has obtained an order of the court unfreezing Mr. Racop’s bank account.”

Does anybody think this is the only case of Abuse of Power, Abuse of Authority in San Mateo County Law Enforcement just ask x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez or Former Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel Quintana.
4.3 million views: The San Mateo County Bolanos-Batmobile Misuse of Power Caper story has swept the entire country
An honest man, his business, and his employee’s livelihood has been jeopardized, and San Mateo County has been shamed.
Rishi’s run is about Ethics-in-Politics, and rooting out corruption, another reason why to vote Rishi over Eshoo. Note: There are no Republicans on this congressional district 16 ballot
Email the following to free this innocent man, stand for justice, and demand that Sheriff Bolanos resign
Local corruption can happen right here under our nose. San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos committed a severe error in judgment by sending a team of local deputies 2000 miles to Indiana to intimidate the world’s only licensed manufacturer of Batmobiles after a timeline dispute between a wealthy Atherton donor who had not yet received his Batmobile on time due to his late payments. Residents were shocked when an ABC7 News investigation by Reporter Dan Noyes shone the light of day on this case and it went viral.
Rishi’s stands with Batmobile’s Mark Racop: When the scandal broke Rishi was the first elected official to speak out against the illegal actions taken by the San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos and the first elected to demand his resignation.
CALL TO ACTION: The People can’t condone this abuse of power. The continued failure of those in power to act against similar corruption makes them complicit.
We need to take action! Cut and paste the email below and you will help free the Batmobile’s innocent Mark Racop!

Subject: Restore SMC’s integrity & Free the Batmobile’s Mark Racop
Dear President Horsley and Supervisors,
We elected you to oversee San Mateo County and Sheriff Bolanos’ blatant misuse of power and taxpayer dollars has shone an ugly spotlight on the county and your workWe ask you to take the following corrective action:
Demand Sheriff Bolanos to resign
Ask the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe to drop all charges against Mark Racop and
Unfreeze all of defendant Mark Racop’s personal and corporate assets.
Please take this immediate action and right this wrong!
Rishi only believes in protecting people: Unlike Eshoo, Rishi runs a corporate-free campaign and he’ll always do the right thing.
Please click on the button above and make a campaign contribution to help our ethics-in-politics run. Eshoo on the other hand is a massive recipient of Big Pharma campaign funds – which has significantly influenced her actions on healthcare and drug prices to favor Pharma.
Rishi’s quest is to root out corruption: It takes courage, integrity, and a people-over-profit perspective. Rishi has always stood strong against those who would use their office improperly.
Rishi’s track record: He fought against a proposition that deceptively increased Santa Clara County Valley Water Board terms. He was the only elected leader from 6 cities that has challenged the powerful San Jose Water Company – for their frequent rate increase proposals, stopping increases nine times.
