Sheriff Bolanos finally has a Plan. Now stop lying on your Press Releases, and Police Reports.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

What was SMC Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez’s Discipline?

By Michael G. Stogner

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?

SMCCC Attorney David Silberman

Updated Sheriff Office News Release

No mention of the Policy BWC Violation, The Governments claim that the Body Worn Camera was not turned on.

“Harmon fired at the first deputy on the scene.” What evidence is there to verify this statement?

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Video

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.

Daly City Council approves Body Worn Camera after Roger Allen Homicide.

By Michael G. Stogner

Daly City Special Meeting May 5, 2021

If you ever want to know what the intention was, just look at the results. Public Comment is at 29:30 mark and Closed at the 30:12 mark Zero Public Comment. The Public did not know about this meeting, Why?

I recently wrote an article about a Daly City resident named David khan who claimed that the Daly City Police Department removed $80,000 Cash and some Gold coins from his residence. He even asked the Police Department to return it. I mentioned this case alone would be reason enough for Daly City Police to have Body Worn Cameras.

SMCN.com Article

I was surprised by the questions the City Council members were asking about how the Axon Body Worn Cameras and the Dash Cameras and Audio systems worked, and data storage etc. The reason I was surprised is they sounded like this was the first time they ever thought about it or discussed it.

I recommend City Manager Shawnna Maltbie have a Axon Representative attend a Public Zoom meeting where he/she can explain why the Body Worn Camera of Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell who interviewed several witnesses in the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide, Failed to download those interviews he tried twice, all interviews were lost. That’s a Bad Thing.

I recommend City Manager Shawnna Maltbie have San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd attend a Public Zoom meeting to explain the Editing, and Caption abilities that he is skilled at and what software capabilities exist, Blurring, deleting etc. He received a copy of the Body Warn Camera Video of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide Video within 24 hours. He never asked for the BWC Video of San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, the Deputy who fired at least 11 shots at her himself. She was shot 8 times 3 fatal shots in her back. Deputy Dominguez fired at her while she was unarmed, hands above her head and her back was facing him.

I recommend City Manager Shawnna Maltbie have San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman attend a Public Zoom meeting to explain why he is Obstructing the Axon Log Records being released in the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide. You would think that an attorney employed by the public would want the Truth to be made Public. The Government has simply said the Deputy did not turn on his BWC. HMB City Council wanted the Axon Log Records made public, The City Staff did Not.

The Axon Log Records would prove the Governments Story, David Silberman, Carlos G. Bolanos, and Steve Wagstaffe don’t want it released.

The Axon Log Records are paid for by the Public, they are the Public’s record. Not David Silberman’s

San Mateo County Candidate for Sheriff 2022, Mark Melville has stated he will release the Axon Log Record the first day he is Sheriff.

After watching this Special Meeting I am making the recommendation that all Daly City Elected Officials and Staff be replaced. Here is why when you allow your Police Department to work in the shadows you can only do that if there is Transparency and Honesty I don’t mean Talking about it I mean doing it showing the public you can be trusted.

Roger Allen Homicide is a recent example. Who was the first Officer on the scene? Why was she/he there? How did the next 3 Officers get there and when? Who reached into the parked vehicle? Who trained your Officers to do that? Who is the Officer that fired her/his weapon into the vehicle with occupants in it?

Since none of these questions have been answered or even been asked by the Daly City government, I say replace them.

This reminds me of 2010 I was contacted by a very Brave Female San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy she sent me a report titled. Gross Misconduct at the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department. It was a report of 45 male SMCSO Employees sharing Porn and a violent Rape Video on the County Computers at the 400 County Center Building.

“Mr. Stogner I have sent this letter to you because you are the only person who has shown the courage to stand up to a corrupt county government.”

That was the first sentence.

San Mateo County Residents have got to elect good human beings that all. Never mind if they have ever been elected before. The less endorsements fro elected officials the better.

I’ll give one example Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley at the 28:52 mark says: “We do not have that funding in our budget.” He’s talking about $270,000 per year.

I would say to him, Chief that is the wrong answer, and thank you for your service. Shawnna Maltbie should be interviewing for a new Police Chief if she hasn’t already started.

Make San Mateo County Safer, get all law Enforcement on the same page and make sure it is the right page.

David Canepa and Bill Silverfarb no response to simple question.

By Michael G. Stogner

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 can just imagine the conversations between the four Maltbie Family members. How do we control the message and the public. In other words Maltbie 101 how to run a Government.https://sanmateocountynews.com/2021/04/30/daly-city-swat-officers-heroes-according-to-steve-wagstaffe-lets-review-the-facts/

Small World Those Who Matter.
John Maltbie and Bill Silverfarb

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 <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To:Dave Canepa, Bill Silverfarb Fri, 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

Daly City Elected Officials, It’s time to say something.

By Michael G. Stogner

It’s been 14 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen who was shot and killed in a disabled parked truck on a residential street in your City of Daly City. You have refused to name the four Daly City Police Officers who were on the scene. You have refused to tell your Police Chief Patrick Hensley to provide the names of the Officers involved, Why?

This is not Transparency.

Yesterday x Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found Guilty of all three charges including murder of George Floyd.

Your behavior proves that San Mateo County is NOT Minneapolis. Think about the Black Lives Matter Resolution you signed.

October 3, 2018 San Mateo County’s own George Floyd was Chinedu V. Okobi he was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae. Within hours Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issued a partial list of those involved, he left out one of the most important person the CSO who sprayed O.C. in Chinedu okobi’s face after he had been tased 7 times, struck with extended baton and dog piled by the group.

It says Below is a list of names of San Mateo County Sheriff Office personnel who were involved in the critical incident. That is not true. CSO Joseph Gonzales is not named.

Yesterday in Columbus Ohio, a 16 year old girl was shot and killed by a Police Officer responding to 2 911 calls. The Interim Police Chief has already released the name of the Officer who shot and killed the teenager, He has also released the Body Worn Camera Videos. Congratulations to Columbus Ohio.

It’s been 14 days Daly City Elected Officials.

Release the names of the 4 Daly City Police Officers involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen today.

Kevin Mullin didn’t say a word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by 6 SMC Employees.

By Michael G. Stogner

Kevin Mullin did not attend or make a public comment at any of the many meetings the Board of Supervisors made available to the public to discuss, Excessive Use of Tasers, Excessive Use of Force, Failure to provide Medical Aid after killing Chinedu Okobi. He did not attend any of the many Concerned Citizens gatherings at the killing site in Millbrae/San Bruno.

Chinedu V. Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by Law Enforcement. Both of the Deaths were ruled a Homicide by the local Coroner. The Four Officers responsible for George Floyd’s Homicide were fired and Criminally Charged. The Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees who are responsible for Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide are all working and None of them have been criminally charged with anything.

Here is Kevin’s PR piece on voting. You will notice he can’t even mention George Floyd’s Name. “most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement.” That could be Hundreds of young Black/Brown Men around America.

I can say this as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years Kevin Mullin is the norm for Elected Officials in SMC.

I know of only one San Mateo County Elected Official that Publicly Questioned, was Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered. That should have been the Obvious question every single elected official should want the answer to.

Sabrina Brennan was that Elected Official. She attended meetings and gatherings.

 

America is confronting an unprecedented “trifecta” that is dominating our daily headlines: A COVID-19 pandemic, a deep recession and most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, illustrative of systemic racism and injustice that has spawned a season of multiracial protests and calls for needed social change. Yet, while the nation is reeling from these crises, duplicitous messaging is being deployed by the occupant of the Oval Office to actively undermine the results of this November’s election: that voting by mail can’t be trusted, that widespread voter fraud exists, and that mail balloting is designed specifically to elect his opponent: FALSE.

Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed ballots, in all 50 states, according to the Vote at Home Institute with only a handful of fraudulent votes cast. Election law expert and U.C. Irvine professor Richard L. Hasen notes, it is still more likely for an American to be struck by lightning than to commit mail-voting fraud. In addition, there is no evidence to suggest that voting by mail benefits any particular political party.

San Mateo County has shown that voting-by-mail works. My legislation to make San Mateo County an all-mail ballot pilot county demonstrated that the participating electorate more closely resembles the public at large in terms of its diversity and representation, with young people, and voters of color in particular more likely to cast ballots. Thanks to my colleague, Assemblyman Marc Berman’s legislation recently signed into law, this November’s election in California will be an all-mailed-ballot election. Every voter automatically will receive a ballot, postage paid, with community-level “vote centers” as back-up. Voting by mail is the most efficient and effective way to conduct an inclusive and participatory election.

So-called “red and blue” states alike have employed voting-by-mail, but the way states have approached elections administration varies greatly. Elections are fundamentally state and locally administered, and recent examples of mismanagement during primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia remind us of the challenges facing election administrators across the country. This is a highly charged political atmosphere with huge stakes on the line.

There is a growing recognition that the pandemic must force changes in how elections work, and better ensure more participation moving forward. Attempts to help fund elections with federal dollars have fallen woefully short of what is needed to ensure free and fair elections across America. Since the Bush-Gore contested election in 2000, the efficacy of voting mechanisms and machinery have taken center stage. More recently, we are seeing a coordinated misinformation campaign to attack the integrity of, and undermine the public’s faith in, our elections. False narratives abound, and voter suppression, which disproportionally disenfranchises communities of color, is real and we all suffer the consequences as a result.

While voting-by-mail works, it is not perfect. Signature-matching issues have led to ballots not being counted, a concern that is actively being addressed in California. One other legitimate drawback to voting at home is the time it takes local elections’ officials to count waves of mail ballots and certify the election. The current administration is preemptively trying to undermine faith in the eventual vote count and may try to exploit delays in vote tabulation to question the legitimacy of results, triggering a constitutional crisis. While the long wait for vote-by-mail results is not ideal, it’s in the interest of every vote being counted, which is fundamental to our democracy.

During this tense time when we need leaders who can calm, heal, and build faith, the president has used this period to further divide people and incite violence, all while callously attacking the basic underpinnings of our democracy, like faith in and respect for the work of journalists — essentially a broadside on the First Amendment. The work of journalists and the social media platforms themselves have never been more important in fact checking false claims and advertisements with false information.

Vote as if democracy itself, and its pillars like a free press, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, including the right of every citizen to vote, is on the ballot. Because it is.

 

Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, is speaker pro tempore of the California Assembly and represents San Mateo County’s 22nd Assembly District.

I asked San Mateo County Citizen Advocate Brent Turner for comment on Kevin Mullin Opinion Piece.

Brent Turner

The VOTE BY MAIL  act  is  innocuous to the degree that it reiterates voting by mail procedures. We have used absentee ballots for many years. What is NOT innocuous is the removal of polling places from communities of color. Though Mindy Romero and other experts have declined to state it clearly,  the added travel distance to some of these community residents results in a veritable “poll tax ” and leads to further disenfranchisement, . Subjective signature disqualification also creates opportunity for disenfranchisement and was predicted by election experts

The bill originally emanated from the ” Colorado Model ”  of elections and was  promulgated by Colorado based vendor DOMINION  The act is notorious not for what it mandates but what it ignores. The fact there is ZERO mention of the software used to tabulate the votes creates a severe point of misdirection to the layperson voter.  This is unfortunate as the authors of the bill positioned it as a security measure when this  is not the case. The authors were briefed extensively but chose to omit the work of the open source software security experts.

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.

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 in Millbrae, California in the middle of the afternoon while Black. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied to the public and he did NOT Immediately assault the Deputy as soon as he exited his vehicle as Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied to the public.

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. He also never investigated the Six Sheriff Employees for not ever checking his pulse or providing any Medical Aide for the next 9 minutes after he had stopped breathing and AMR staff finally reached his dead body.

Millbrae Officials Silent on in custody death of pedestrian Chinedu V. Okobi.

On October 3, 2018 in the middle of the day on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California. Chinedu V. Okobi died after 6 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Tased him 7 times, hit him with extended baton, and sprayed him with OC spray, at least 4 deputies were on top of him when he stopped breathing, was he turned on his side as policy requires, No is the answer, who if anyone provided CPR? None of the six Sheriff Employees did.

The City of Millbrae has hired the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office to provide peace officers or public safety services for the residents. Captain Paul Kunkel took over the Millbrae position just 3 weeks before this in custody death of a pedestrian happened.

We are not talking about a violent bank robbery, or car jacking suspect, we are talking about a man walking down the sidewalk. At the very minimum this demonstrates the provider is incompetent and at the maximum this was criminal behavior.

I have not seen or heard any comments from these two gentlemen who are responsible.

These are the seven people who are responsible to the residents of Millbrae to provide Police Services. They have remained silent. Many Good and Concerned Citizens have been speaking up at the Board of Supervisors Meetings demanding answers to what really happened that day Release the video and audio recordings.

12/4/2018 Supervisor Meeting over 40 speakers

02/13/2019 Chinedu’s Birthday, 37 Balloons given with Petition of 50,000 signatures to D.A. Steve Wagstaffe.

That night I attended a Vigil at 1400 El Camino Real, Millbrae, California it was a stormy night full of love and respect for Chindeu and his loved ones. I did not see any of the seven people above attend. I did meet two neighbors who said they are terrified of the Police in Millbrae. I told them they don’t have Police in Millbrae they have the Sheriff’s Office, big difference. They also said they are sickened by what happened to Chinedu Okobi. I thanked them for attending and sharing their thoughts.
