SMC Sheriff’s Office Finally issues Press Release on SAL Embezzlement Investigation

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos continues to hide information from the public about ‘Those Who Matter” When he finally does disclose what he is forced to, and he Misleads the Public, as he did with Operation Dollhouse, calling it a massage parlor mistake when it was Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor. Or when he interfered with a criminal investigation involving his son at the Pioneer Saloon in Woodside.

You would not know from this Press Release that Embezzlement of Sheriff Activities League monies stolen from the children of the County was the subject. There has been no arrest, no booking photos, no nothing coming from Sheriff Bolanos on his own. So 59 days after the fact he issues this vague misinformation piece.

A reasonable person would know the Attorney General would not investigate Irregularities. A Sheriff Employee would not resign for Irregularities.

Sheriff Press Release

It wasn’t that long ago that both Carlos G. Bolanos and his daughter Ashley Bolanos were President and Administrative Aid for S.A.L

“We Stand with the Black Community,” Zuckerberg

By Michael G. Stogner

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was quoted in todays LATIMES.

I have to admit, I have No Idea what that means. F.B. Headquaters is located in Menlo Park, which is in San Mateo County, California.

October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi a 36 year old black man was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees while in Custody. December 31, 2018 The Coroners Office ruled the manner of Death to be a Homicide.

“I have determined the manner of Death to be Homicide.”

Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 reviewed and approved 12/31/2018

HOMICIDE PROTOCOL* 36 year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies

March 1, 2019 two months later District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a closed to the public Press Conference which I attended. He gave a 26 minute presentation on why he was not charging any of the Five not Six Sheriff Employees in the tragic death of Chinedu Okobi. Who had committed no crime before the deputy decided to engage him. He was tased 7 times, struck with baton, Sprayed in face with O.C. spray and dog piled by SIX Sheriff Employees. After he stopped breathing he was sat up on El Camino Real and ignored for about 9 minutes to make sure he was dead before AMR and Fire Paramedics could get to him.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Never mentions the word Homicide in his presentation it’s only at the very end (47:30) of the Question and Answer period when he was asked by KQED Reporter Julie Small “Do you know the Manner of Death?”

A reasonable person would ask since it was determined a Homicide, How is it that no criminal charges were filed against the Six County Employees?

Last week the world saw George Floyd being Murdered by four Police Officers, The United States is Protesting today during a Pandemic because a Citizen was brave enough to try and stop it but also videoed it. The body camera and audio has not been released yet Why?

Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg said “We stand with the Black Community.”

I do not recall Mark Zuckerberg saying One Word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide in his own backyard.

True in SMC Homicide of Chinedu Okobi 10/03/2018

By Michael G. Stogner

This photo was taken at a protest for George Floyd’s Murder. When I saw the Kill Now Lie Later I couldn’t help but think about Chinedu Okobi being killed by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees and ALL the Lies that followed. The Lie Later could be minutes or hours as evidenced by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos two News Releases.

Omitting the 6th Sheriff Employee CSO Gonzales
Sherif Carlos G.Bolanos created this lie

Chinedu Okobi was not running in and out of traffic, and did not immediately assault the deputy. Sheriff Bolanos left both of these false statements on the County’s website for 5 months.

The Lie could be 19 days later as example Sgt. Irfan Zaidi “I directed Deputy Lorenzatti to remove the metal handcuffs from the subject, which she did, and the subject was placed on his back.

This is a 100% fabrication by a SMC Sergeant 19 days after the Homicide. Zaidi was NOT involved in the Homicide but filed a false report.

March 1, 2019 60 days after Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz determined the manner of death to be a Homicide, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and his top management team held this closed to the public Press Conference which I attended.

The Lie later could also be 5 months later and 2 months after it was determined to be a Homicide.

SMC COUNTY D.A. Provides public his highly edited video and reports.

They don’t mention the Homicide. Why?

Mark Simon Joins the Victim Shaming/Bashing TEAM.

By Michael G. Stogner

May 14, 2020 Mark Simon wrote an article titled “An unusual Harbor District Meeting” the typical Victim Shaming piece which is something he is quite skilled at. This article is about a SMCHD meeting that took place 29 days prior to his article. He has joined Congresswoman Jackie Speiers Daughter Stephanie Sierra of ABC 7/KGO in the Victim Shaming plan of attack. Also on the TEAM is Supervisor Don Horsley, Assemblyman Kevin Mullin (Mark Simon’s partner) I can’t wait to discover who is the Captain of this TEAM and who is responsible for forming it.

I would suggest Mark Simon consider the May 26, 2015 as an unusual meeting it was very exciting and I know he attended I just don’t know why?At the time he worked for SamTrans.

First of all this April 15, 2020 meeting was not unusual for the Harbor District, I’m not sure how many meetings Mr. Simon has actually attended I have attended several and the yelling and cutting each other off especially Virginia Chang Kiraly to Sabrina Brenna is normal Virginia doesn’t like Sabrina similar to how Mark Simon feels about her.

Mark Simon who supports the Perpetrator says Her vehicle for this behavior was a long-standing dispute with fellow Commissioner Tom Mattusch, who in 2014 foolishly circulated some raw pornography to about 40 people. Mark doesn’t mention the Invitation for all expense paid Safari trip Tom Mattusch offered Sabrina.

So it’s Not ok with Mark Simon for Victim Sabrina Brennan to speak about female genitalia but is ok to mail unwelcome porn, which is exactly what Commissioner Tom Mattusch sent her and all the other Commissioners, Supervisor Don Horsley, Assemblyman Mullin, Mark Simon, and Stephanie Sierra ABC 7/KGO are cool with that. Together they want/wish Sabrina Brennan to just SHUT UP, Move On. That is the same that all Child Molesters (SMC Dr. William Ayers) and their Enablers want/wish of their Victims.

John Ullom at 29:20 Mark He and brother Dan own Citizen Access TV, somebody stole his broadcasting device, They were broadcasting the meeting live for FREE. Somebody didn’t want that to happen.

SMCHD Meeting May 26, 2015

SamTrans 2013 Protest of Bulling and Corruption at San Carlos Headquarter

The true picture of Mark Simon, a Loud & Vile Bully, Victim Shaming/Basher.

As a Private Victims Advocate for the last 22 years in San Mateo County I find the way to get a victim to stop talking about a subject is to deal with it Honestly in the first place. Victim Shaming, and telling the Victim to Shut up is a guarantee that you will hear about it at Every Single Meeting.

“I will continue bringing up my harassment at these meetings,” she said. “I won’t be silenced.” Sabrina Brennan.

Supervisor Don Horsley wants to discuss more.WHY?

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Don Horsley has already discussed and shared his thoughts, his personal opinions with Congresswoman Jackie Speiers daughter Stephanie Sierra. She is a reporter for ABC 7 KGO May 8, 2020. She somehow got interested in a meeting that took place 3 weeks earlier. Why? She also Interviewed Kevin Mullin. Why?

Don Horsley has placed this Vague subject on Tuesday’s agenda, I’ve asked him to explain what his wishes to accomplish, He has not responded.

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS  MAY 19, 2020 

AGENDA ITEM 5

Discuss and/or Act on concerns regarding Harbor Board of Commissioners and request for updated Municipal Service Review on San Mateo County Harbor District by San Mateo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo).

Sponsors: Don Horsley

Don Horsley wants to Discuss his concerns regarding Harbor Board of Commissioners. Which ones?

A Republican up until Nov 15, 2019, Virginia Chang Kiraly changed her voter registration from Republican to Democrat in preparation for upcoming campaign/s. That is the exact same thing Jerry Hill did. Virginia Kiraly who recently Victim Shamed S.B. “Stop Lying Sabrina” She couldn’t possibly be talking about the Pornographic Photos sent to Sabrina.

Democrat Sabrina Brennan a victim of Sexual Harassment by another Harbor Commissioner. The Harbor District dealt with that, like San Mateo County does with all of their Pornographic Passing and Child Molesting friends. They hire an Attorney (First Red Flag) to do an Independent Investigation which translates to results favoring those who paid for it.

Supervisor Don Horsley, a former school teacher and Sheriff of SMC wants Commissioner Sabrina Brennan to stop mentioning Pornographic Photos and Sexual Harrassment at the Harbor District Meetings. WHY? 

The answer is simple Supervisor Don Horsley Supports it. He wants VICTIMS to Shut UP.

Supervisor Horsley has been interfering with the Harbor Districts business for years. May 26, 2015 Meeting is a perfect example.

Let the Commissioners solve this, Sabrina Brennan the victim has every right to mention this at every single meeting if she wants to. Perhaps at the Public Comment section just like the BOS meetings where serious subjects are made public and the Supervisors simply ignore them.

As a Private Victims Advocate for the last 22 years in San Mateo County I find the way to get a victim to stop talking about a subject is to deal with it Honestly in the first place. Victim Shaming, and telling the Victim to Shut up is a guarantee that you will hear about it at Every Single Meeting.

“I will continue bringing up my harassment at these meetings,” she said. “I won’t be silenced.” Sabrina Brennan.

If you would like to make a Public Comment to the Supervisors on this item you can send it by e-mail. It will be read into the record.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, “Best Less Lethal Tools.” Really?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.

The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.

Supervisor Warren Slocum

You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.

I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.

SMC Board of Supervisor Meeting May 5, 2020

Sandra Lee Harmon 56, a Mother and Wife was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies less than 8 hours later at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California.

San Mateo County Release the Videos, Audios Today. Identity the Deputies involved. It’s been 7 days since she was killed.

At 3:52:22 My public comment was read by Suki into the public record.

  • Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>May 5 at 8:11 AM
  • To:Sukhmani S. Purewal
  • Cc: Jeff Regan, Dave Pine, Don Horsley, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom and 1 more…Tue,
  • Dear Supervisors,
    I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened.
    Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018

    Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.”
    Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.

    Thank You
    Michael G. Stogner

    No need to read below just for reference.
    Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.
