San Mateo County, Elected Officials and Staff Reform is what’s needed. Daly City’s Homicide of Roger Allen.

By Michael G. Stogner

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?

BOS Meeting 4/20/21 Stogner Public Comment at 8:22-10:32 mark

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 

Four children hold signs and wear shirts saying "Black Lives Matter"
San Mateo County Elected and Staff Do Black Lives really Matter to you?

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”.

Daly City Elected Officials, What was the Plan? Allen Roger Homicide by DCPD Officers.

By Michael G. Stogner

Daly City Elected Officials, You are responsible for your Police Chief’s behavior.

It’s been 13 days since Roger Allen was killed by somebody that was employed by the City of Daly City. This unnamed person is supposedly employed by the Daly City Police Department. Until that person and others are identified the public is left to guess and wonder.

What was the plan? This killing of a Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (Flat Tire) and now dead is very similar to several Deaths by San Mateo County Law Enforcement.

Errol Chang R.I.P. What was the plan other than to kill him? He was inside a tiny house by himself surrounded by Swat TEAM from Daly City.

Yanira Serrana-Garcia R.I.P. What was the plan? Yanira was shot and killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his vehicle, he passed his partner and went on his own with No Plan.

Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. What was the plan? A Moorehouse Graduate, a Father, a man who committed No Crime, other than walking on the sidewalk in Millbrae while Black. The News Release issued by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade had so many lies in it and Omissions. For now I will just say this Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd. Six Sheriff Employees on top of Chinedu after tasing him SEVEN times striking him with an extended baton, spraying O.C. in his face at close range right before he was handcuffed and stopped breathing. He was sat up on El Camino Real with deputies bracing his back so his head would be slumped forward to assure he would never breath again. No Medical aide was provided by any of the Six Sheriff Employees for the next 9 minutes. No matter what they claim or the edited video with the false captions.

Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. What was the plan? After searching for her for more than 20 minutes a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez goes on his own, doesn’t report where he is and claims he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera 14 shots were fired at Sandra three stuck her back they were all fatal shots. Three shell casings were moved at the crime scene. The San Mateo County Sheriff Office provided a video 5 months later starring Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He promotes the False story of a Shootout started by Sandra, He doesn’t mention that she was shot while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. He doesn’t mention the 3 shell casings being moved at the crime scene. He doesn’t mention the 2 bullet holes found in a building by a citizen in a location that proves the Sheriff’s Story is a lie. San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman is responsible for refusing to make the AXON Log Records public. They will prove in a matter of minutes if the Government’s story of the Body Worn Camera was turned off. Why wouldn’t David Silberman want the truth to be made public. The AXON Log Records are paid for by the public.

Now it’s Daly City’s turn for the Elected Officials and Staff to do what they claim they are committed to provide Transparency. What was the Police Department’s plan for FOUR Officers to to be involved in a disabled vehicle in the middle of the afternoon in a residential neighborhood. The vehicle had 3 occupants, Was there a 911 call? The PD’s statement says the incident started at 1:55 PM. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told me that Roger Allen was transported by ambulance from the crime scene at 2:11 PM. That is 16 minutes total time involved. That might just be an all time record for San Mateo County.

The Government’s Story that every Daly City Elected Official and Staff supports is one of the unnamed four Police Officers reached into the vehicle and wrestled with decedent and a fake gun. They don’t describe it as a BB gun they call it a fake gun.

What was the Plan? Does Daly City Police Department train their Police Officers to reach into a vehicle with occupants and wrestle with one who allegedly is holding a GUN?

There is a lot of talk about Law Enforcement Reform around America right now I suggest we add Elected Officials and Staff Reform. #ElectedOfficialsReform

Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager of Daly City finally issues a statement on Roger Allen’s Homicide by DCPD Officer.

By Michael G. Stogner

Shawnna Maltbie

Roger Allen is dead, he was killed by a Daly City Police Officer, on April 7, 2021 that is a fact.

What we don’t know is the name of the Daly City Police Officer who shot and killed him.

What we do know which is almost nothing, but is always promoted by the District Attorney’s Office and the News Media whenever a civilian is murdered by law enforcement in San Mateo County is that the officer was FEARFUL for either his/her life or their partners. If the word fearful is missing from the original Police Reports it will be mentioned by the Attorneys who meet with their clients the Police Officers within minutes of the Homicide.

April 14, 2021 Shawnna Maltbie’s Statement

Why did it take 7 days to make a statement in the first place?

Daly City claims to be committed to transparency, What is the name of the Police Officer who shot and killed Roger Allen? This officer in on paid administrative leave. Daly City Elected Officials, The Police Chief, and City Manager, Assistant City Manager all know who the officer is. Releasing the Officer’s name won’t effect any investigation, it will provide the transparency the city claims to be committed to.

Why wouldn’t Daly City Leaders ask D.A. Wagstaffe to refer this Investigation to the Attorney General’s Office?

Another question for all Daly City Elected officials and Staff. Why have you allowed your Police Department to work without Body Worn Cameras which the San Mateo County Grand Jury warned you about in 2016.

Response to Grand Jury 2016 on Body Worn Cameras

Body worn Cameras are for the benefit of Police Officers as much as they are for the public.

Minneapolis is a prefect example, Daunte Wright was murdered by a Police Officer April 11, 2021, The Police Chief released the Body Worn Video within 18 hours. The public got to see what the public servants actually did, not what they say the did. Since the release, the Police Officer who was identified right away resigned and has been arrested and charged with manslaughter. The Police Chief has resigned, and the City Manager has been FIRED. That’s all within 2 days.

Why did 4 Daly City Police Officers show up for a vehicle with a flat tire in a residential neighborhood? Who called for backup. According to the Police Chief this innocent started at 1:55 PM and according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Roger Allen was in the Ambulance and on his way at 2:11 PM. That’s 16 minutes. Which DCPD Officers provided life saving measures and for how many minutes before the Ambulance arrived?

How many minutes did EMT’s provide life saving measures after they arrived and before they loaded Roger Allen and transported him?

What time was the fatal shot fired? What time was the second shot fired?

What training of DCPD Officers teaches them to reach into a vehicle and grab a gun that is in the hands of an occupant? That’s the story that is being reported by Stave Wagstaffe.

There is No excuse for Daly City Police to not have Body Worn Cameras period. Those videos should be made public with No Edits or Captions added within 12 hours of a Critical Incident.

What makes Daly City Elected Officials and Staff think they are not going to have to answer these simple questions?

Justice for Chinedu is looking for a Candidate for District Attorney 2022

By Michael G. Stogner

This might just be a First in San Mateo County History. They are Fundraising to find the right Candidate to replace SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe in 2022.

17862588_1618867384820560_4466109734454003179_n

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

As some of you know on October 3, 2018, Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by Six Sheriff Employees, One Sergeant, 4 Deputies and a Civilian CSO. December 31, 2018 Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled the Manner of Death was a Homicide. There was No 911 call because Chinedu hadn’t committed ANY crime. He was simply walking on a sidewalk while Black.

March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe notified the public that he would Not be filing any Criminal Charges against the Sergeant and four Deputies. He never investigated the sixth Sheriff Employee who was involved in the Homicide.

SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Nice words about George Floyd’s Murder & Racism.

By Michael G. Stogner

Steve-Wagstaffe

D.A. Stephen M. Wagstaffe

Condemnation Racism And Bigotry

As District Attorney of San Mateo County, I join the other District Attorneys in California in condemning the senseless death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I extend condolences to the family of George Floyd and to the communities across this nation that are in mourning over Mr. Floyd’s death. As a society, we must bring an end to bigotry and racism in our country, and it is the solemn responsibility of all government leaders and every member of the criminal justice system to achieve this goal. The citizens of this country cannot rest until we bring an end to racial inequity and racism in our country. After 43 years as a prosecutor in San Mateo County, it saddens me that shocking events such as Mr. Floyd’s death and the violence that followed continue to occur. We will continue to collaborate with San Mateo County law enforcement agencies to train their officers to insure proper and lawful conduct by officers and to appropriately investigate any conduct that violates the law. Every member of the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office will resolutely continue to seek justice and fairness in our criminal justice system. To this end, I have signed the attached statement of the California District Attorneys Association issued this past weekend condemning racism and bigotry. I hope and pray the principles enunciated in this statement may soon be achieved.

 

Stephen M. Wagstaffe
District Attorney

 

The Prosecutor the Judges are talking about below is Stephen M. Wagstaffe “his ulterior motive was race-based.”

[22] But Jefferson was not the only African-American the prosecutor peremptorily challenged. He also struck the only other African-American potential juror, and, in so doing, pro- vided several pretextual explanations for that strike. In light of this additional strike, the prosecutor’s proffer of two ques- tionable explanations for his strike of Jefferson take on a sig- nificance that they might otherwise lack. See Lewis v. Lewis, 321 F.3d 824, 831 (9th Cir. 2003) (“The proffer of various faulty reasons and only one or two otherwise adequate rea- sons, may undermine the prosecutor’s credibility to such an extent that a court should sustain a Batson challenge.”). At a minimum, these dubious explanations reaffirm our conclusion that the prosecutor’s actual reason for striking M.C. differed from those that he asserted and that his ulterior motive was race-based. See Kesser, 465 F.3d at 369 (“The prosecutor’s willingness to make up nonracial reasons for striking [three minority jurors] makes it even harder to believe that his rea- sons for striking [a fourth juror] were race-neutral.”).

IV. Conclusion

[23] Taken as a whole, the record compels a finding that the prosecutor’s non-race based reasons for peremptorily striking M.C. were pretexts. The fact that the prosecutor peremptorily struck the only other African-American juror in the jury pool and provided at least two implausible reasons for that challenge reinforces this conclusion. We therefore hold that both the California Court of Appeal and the district court clearly erred when they found that Ali failed to establish pur- poseful discrimination. We further hold that, in light of the overwhelming evidence indicating that the prosecutor in Ali’s case acted with discriminatory intent when he struck M.C., the California appellate court’s finding to the contrary was an unreasonable determination of the facts in light of the evi- dence presented in the state court proceedings. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(2). We therefore reverse the judgment of the dis- trict court and remand with directions to issue a conditional writ of habeas corpus requiring Ali’s release from custody, unless the State elects to retry Ali within a reasonable time to be determined by the district court.

REVERSED and REMANDED.

Ali vs. Hickman

Matthew Graves case in another clear example.

Chinedu Okobi Sheriff In-Custody Death was ruled a Homicide by the Coroner on December 31, 2018 on March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe announced he was not charging any of the SIX County Employees.

It is easy for Politicians to say Nice words, pay attention to their actions,

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos should RESIGN.

By Michael G. Stogner

As some of you know I personally requested Carlos G. Bolanos resign from San Mateo County Law Enforcement on May 14, 2007 Certified Mail.

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has a bad habit of lying to the public. He has been doing that for a long, long time. San Mateo County Supervisors Warren Slocum, Don Horsley, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa and Carole Groom, County Counsel John Beiers, David Silberman, County Manager Mike Callagy are all fully aware of this and are not only fine with this fact but endorse this behavior.

Recently Sheriff Bolanos after 45 days released a video presentation of the Execution of Unarmed Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 7:25 PM at 845 Main Street Half Moon Bay, California. Sheriff Bolanos was quick to inform the public that she fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez who was taking cover behind his SUV Patrol Vehicle which was parked sideways right in front of her about 20 feet away. He reports to his sergeant that she fired two rounds which just happens to be all the shotgun holds which means it is now empty. Threat is diminished substantially. Adding to that threat downgrading is the fact that she no longer is in possession of the shotgun. At the 8:00 mark of the video provided to the pubic by Sheriff Bolanos you can hear Deputy Dominguez yell Put you hands up and see Unarmed Sandra Harmon with hers hands up and above head you can also hear FIVE shots being fired at her by 8:06 mark. Why?

Sheriff Bolanos’s Video

Sheriff Bolanos is a master at misinformation, he and most of the media focus on Sandra Harmon Jay Walking & Reaching for an Empty Gun instead. If that sounds familiar it should Chinedu Okobi killed by 6 Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. All violated their Oath refused to provide medical aide for more than 8 minutes and Lied about it.

San Mateo County Residents should ask Sheriff Bolanos What is your policy regarding a Deputy shooting at an Unarmed citizen? So far it is Kill Now Lie Later.

Sheriff Bolanos doesn’t mention it at all. He should RESIGN. Sheriff Bolanos tells us that Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Camera for the conversation and shooting of Sandra Harmon. I might point out Deputy Dominguez has not said that. Deputy Dominguez went by himself to the motorhome with no body camera on is the story Carlos Bolanos is pushing. Why would a reasonable person believe that?

The good news is even if that were true, it really doesn’t matter because the In-Car Camera /Audio System will have recorded his conversation and we will be able to clearly hear the Shotgun Blasts. A reasonable person would expect to see damage to the patrol car with 2 rounds fired at a Deputy taking cover behind it less than 20 feet away.

What did Sergeant James E. Goulart recommend? What was the plan if he encountered the woman with a Shotgun, why was he alone?

That is exactly what happened when Yanira Serrano-Garcia was killed by Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of exiting his patrol vehicle. He was alone and No Plan. That 911 call was a Non Emergency Medial assistance call.

Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018 there was NO 911 call.  No Plan

Sandra Harmon R.I.P. shown with Hands above Head being fired upon by SMC Deputies.

By Michael G. Stogner

At least five shots fired at her while unarmed & hands up. 8:03-8:08 Mark

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos released a Public Relations Video 45 days after Sandra Harmon was killed by Deputies. The original claim made by Sheriff Balanos was She shot first, Newspapers reported a Shootout which requires bullets going both ways. It would be so simple to prove that release Deputy Dominguez’s Body worn video, his MAV audio from the Dashcam which was right there at the scene. It would have recorded the single or double shot allegedly fired from the shotgun that we see on the ground. That would also answer the question How & When did the Shotgun get on the ground. Did she start the shootout and then lay it down only to be shot at while her hands were in the air?

Sheriff Bolanos tells us that things moved so quickly that Deputy Dominguez was unable to activate his Body Worn Video. That’s unfortunate because that would have confirmed Bolanos’s Story.

Deputy Dominguez Body Worn Video was working just fine from the 3:30-6:29 mark. Sheriff Bolanos claims it wasn’t on less then a minute later. So to recap The Sheriff Office has had 45 days to edited and create a shot fired or shootout as they told the residents of San Mateo County.

Instead they provide a video showing NO Shots Fired by Sandra Harmon and show Deputies firing at an unarmed woman with her hands up.

So far this is OK with the 750,000 residents of San Mateo County

Sheriff Bolanos’s Video

What would you do if you were unarmed hands above your head and Deputies are firing at you from close range? I think a reasonable person would try to defend herself even if the shotgun was not loaded. What choice did she have? Follow more legal orders while they reload?

Sherif Carlos G. Bolanos release all video and audio like you should have 45 days ago.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Releases Edited Video of Sandra Harmon getting killed.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos finally releases some highly edited version of what they claim happened. Here is what a reasonable person would not see in this creation.

You do not see the Body Worn Camera Video of Deputy David Dominguez who fired at her. Why? Oh he didn’t bother to turn it on even though it is the San Mateo County Sheriff Office Policy. The Axon Log Records would verify Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’ statement that his Deputy did not turn on his BWC. You do NOT see Sandra Harmon firing her shotgun period. You do not hear her shotgun being fired. The only witness who was just feet away never said he heard the blasts from a shotgun. He has since passed away.

Residents should demand all videos be released the day of the event. Today 41 days after her death the Sheriff produces Video with no captions of who is shooting, how many shots for each Deputy. Not one Deputy used a lesser force while she was unarmed and several feet from the shotgun.

Carlos G. Bolanos’s Video

Why did Sheriff Bolanos star in this video? When Chinedu Okobi was killed by Six Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018, Sheriff Bolanos issued two False News Releases with about five false statements, Now he is staring and he knows the Video does Not show her shooting her gun, and how many shots were fired at her and missed when she was unarmed?

Chinedu Okobi’s Death was a Homicide. Same as George Floyd.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirms Chinedu Okobi’s death was a Homicide. 47:30 mark.

A reasonable person would ask why the Six Sheriff Employees were not arrested and charged? In George Floyd’s Homicide all Officers were fired and criminally charged.

I’m not surprised the residents of San Mateo County don’t know this information, Reporter Anna Schuessler sat in front of me at the press conference and heard as we all did it was a Homicide. Her article the next left out the most important word in the story Homicide for some reason. Thats 84,000 readers that were not informed.

Deputies cleared: Taser death decision likely trailed by lawsuit, pledge to use medical equipment

By Anna Schuessler Daily Journal staff Mar 2, 2019 

The Residents of San Mateo County should get a second opinion from the A.G.

No Confidence in SMCDA Chief Inspector John Warren

By. Michael G, Stogner

San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector John Warren

He is in-charge of the Investigation of Sandra Harmon death by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba and Deputy David Dominguez on May 5, 2020 just off of Main Street Half Moon Bay.

He was also the in-charge of the Yanira Serrano-Garcia death by Deputy Investigation June 3, 2014 also Half Moon Bay.

He was also SMCDA Inspector Jamie Draper’s Supervisor and he approved this Conclusion Summary of the Coroner’s Report in the Chinedu Okobi Death by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018.

He doesn’t mention the word Homicide. Jamie Draper says it should be noted that this information is contrary. NO IT ISN’T Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz is 100% correct.
“I have determined the manner of death to be Homicide.”
“HOMICIDE PROTOCOL” 36-year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies

Both Inspectors of San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office thought that Omitting the word Homicide and a deliberately misleading statement was fine.

That is why I have No Confidence in either one of them. I also think it is a criminal act to provide a false report in what should have been a Homicide Investigation.

San Mateo County should release the MAV videos and audio recordings of the death of Sandra Harmon, they should have done it the first day.
