Crimson Contagion Exercise of 2019

By Michael G. Stogner

This was a Nine Month Exercise put on by the Trump Administration from Jan to September 2019.

The Crimson Contagion 2019 Functional Exercise included robust participation from federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal communities, as well as from private sector partners including the White House National Security Council. Participation included 19 federal departments and agencies, 12 states, 15 tribal nations and pueblos, 74 local health departments and coalition regions, 87 hospitals, and over 100 healthcare and public health private sector partners.

Alex Azar was part of it and San Mateo County Health EMS Agency allegedly participated.

In this exercise The virus is in the “acceleration phase”, the phase during which the number of cases consistently increases. That sounds familiar doesn’t it also they predicted 586,000 Deaths in America alone.

Remember this report was produced in September 2019.

HMB Resident Rachel A. Quintana did the right thing. SMCSO Employees Didn’t.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

Hon. Judge Lisa Novak & Sgt. Michael Otte Perjury starts on Page 5

What happened to Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney?

We know what happened to Sergeant Michael E. Otte, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos gave him a Retirement Party.

Sgt. Michael E. Otte & Sheriff Bolanos

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.

Welcome to San Mateo County

Another False News Release by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

A reasonable person in San Mateo County would know by now not to believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or his Public Information Officers publish or provide to the public.

The News Releases dated October 3, 2018 involving the Homicide by Deputies of Chinedu V. Okobi is just one example.

The Recent Homicide by Deputies of Sandra Lee Harmon May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay is another.

Now we have a News release issued December 4, 2020 by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office about Barbara Bonilla being arrested on December 4, 2020. On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000. That is a Baldface Lie. If that was a TRUE statement there would be a Booking Photo dated December 4, 2020. Its that simple.

SMC Sheriff News Release 12/4/2020

You’ll notice there is No Booking Photo provided by the Sheriff’s Office, Why? Did any of the other print media request the Booking Photo of Barbara Bonilla? I have.

From the News Release: “SAL is a non-profit organization affiliated with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.” That is an understatement, Sheriff Activities League (SAL) is a Division of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

From the News Release: “The investigation determined that approximately $25,000 was missing.

Did the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) Investigate the Sheriff Activities League Executive Director and others for 10 months for approximately $25,000 of MISSING money. The Investigation was for Embezzlement and Laundering not Missing money. Why did the Investigation take 10 months if it was only $25,000?

I would like to see what the DOJ says the total amount is, not what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says.

Why was Barbara Bonilla not arrested on April 2, 2020 as the DOJ expected?

Nathan Ballard why not charged with Attempted Murder of 4 year old?

By Michael G. Stogner

Nathan Ballard

The Nathan Ballard Criminal case should be compared to the dismissed San Mateo County Criminal case of Zain Jaffer.

Both involve the Attempted Murder of their children, Zain Jaffer’s 3 year old son and Nathan Ballard’s 4 year old child. Both men claimed to love their children and know and knew they were falsely charged.

Both cases involve Crisis Management Public Relations firms Sitrick in Jaffer and Ballard’s own company.

Ballard’s wife Mara is most likely the Victim who reported to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office October 18, 2020 the next day after the alleged crimes. If she is not the unidentified victim she has probably already met with her new Divorce Attorney.

What is consistent between the Jaffer case and Ballard case is that the Victims are being IGNORED.

Ask yourself when did you first read about Nathan Ballard being arrested?

Nathan Ballard was formally charged December 3, 2020.

Stay focused on the alleged Victims and what was reported to have occurred. Ask yourself if these allegations were made against the average American Citizen or Resident would the News Media have reported it sooner.

It is not uncommon for the Victim’s to be sold out in these “Those Who Matter” cases.

When Mark Melville becomes SMC Sheriff in 2022.

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…!!!!

An open letter to San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Every Resident of San Mateo County should be asking the same Question.

This Open Letter was published today in the Half Moon Bay Review.

Nov 25, 2020 

Dear San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos,

As you are well aware, your deputies wear a Body Worn Camera system whenever they are on patrol. The taxpayers of San Mateo County bought these camera systems for your deputies so that in the case of contentious incidents, like one here in Half Moon Bay on May 5, we would be able to review for ourselves what actually happened; this as opposed to simply being given a narrative from your office with no way to validate its authenticity.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any video for the May 5 shooting of Sandra Harmon from the deputy who initiated the encounter and who fired the bulk (11 out of 14) of shots at Harmon, including the fatal shot to her back. Your office says this is because he turned off his camera before approaching the RV behind Pasta Moon (against procedure) and, oops, we’re sorry about that. You haven’t even bothered to give us a reason his mobile camera and audio was “off” as well.

I’d like to believe you. I’d like to believe the deputy’s version of events. But as someone famous once said: Trust, but verify. As it turns out we actually can verify at least one part of your story — whether the BWC was in fact turned off by the deputy prior to the encounter. The company that makes the cameras and hosts the video files also keeps a log file for every camera, basically forever, allowing a review of the status of any given camera at any given time.

Thus we, the public and your employers, can know if the statement that the cameras were off is in fact true or false, and your office has control of the file that will enlighten us.

Yet you refuse to do so. Not less than four Public Records Act requests, including one from the city of Half Moon Bay itself, have been rebuffed by your attorneys. Most curiously, if the video confirms your version of events, then it would seem to be in your interest to release it to the public at the earliest possible opportunity. Yet you have not done this.

Which makes most people wonder what you are hiding?

I’m not writing to ask you for the log file again. You’ve already refused quite stridently in previous requests. Instead, I’m writing this letter to ask you firmly but respectfully to provide the entire community, here in the Opinion page of the Review, an answer as to why you won’t release the log files.

Please don’t say they are confidential. They are not. On footage from other BWC in use that day you released the actual video. If the video the cameras record isn’t confidential, then how can you possibly argue that a simple file with numbers and times that indicate the status of the cameras at any time is confidential?

Please don’t say you don’t want to set a bad precedent. That would be an insult to the communities you serve.

Please just tell us the truth and tell us why you won’t release the log file to the public.

Thank you in advance for your prompt response to this message.

David Eblovi lives in Half Moon Bay.

San Mateo County’s John Ullom. Thank You

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

John Ullom

Fatal shots in the back provoked the LA Coroner to ask for an independent analysis in the interests of transparency. 

https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/11/us/andres-guardado-los-angeles-inquest/index.html

We do things differently here in San Mateo County.

If you see John Ullom tell him Thank You.

Sitrick and Company hired by Zain Jaffer. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

How many Criminal defendants hire a P.R. Firm to promote the story they wish the world to hear.

Over the last 20 years I have attended many, many criminal cases and trials in San Mateo County, I know of only one case where the defendant hired a professional Crisis Management Public Relations Company to promote a fictional story. That case is the Zain Jaffer Criminal Case.

Some of you know I have recommended San Mateo County Residents Audit the Zainali Jaffer Case and the former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Case. One start to finish less than 9 months and the other 6 years in the judicial system and still counting. What are the differences?

Sitrick and Company is one difference.

A Private Meeting with the District Attorney’s TEAM after a Preliminary Hearing is another difference. How many times does that happen? That meeting is where the SMC residents should focus, was it recorded? What was really communicated that afternoon, Think about that. What could possibly have been communicated during that meeting that caused many San Mateo County Employees to forget their Oath?

This is Terry Fahn & Stuart Pfeifer of Sitrick and Company’s Work July 23, 2018 which is 21 days after the Entire case was dismissed.

July 23, 2018 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Patrick Clancy, attorney for Zain Jaffer, co-founder and former CEO of video ad company Vungle, today thanked Stephen M. Wagstaffe, District Attorney for the County of San Mateo, for going out of his way to clarify that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any form of sexual misconduct.

“examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.”

Tweet this

Mr. Jaffer was arrested in October 2017 after an altercation with family members caused by a dangerous reaction to doctor-prescribed medication. In July, the San Mateo County District Attorney’s office dismissed all charges against Mr. Jaffer, a move that could open the door to Mr. Jaffer’s return to Vungle.

In a new statement published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Mr. Wagstaffe said: “We do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

Mr. Clancy praised the District Attorney’s office for clarifying the facts and making it clear that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any sexual assault charge.

“Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual. He suffered an adverse reaction to medication and in the process injured some family members. It was accidental and could have happened to anyone,” Mr. Clancy said, “Thankfully, the District Attorney and his staff reviewed all the evidence and made the right decision.”

“The sexual assault charges were dismissed because they never happened. It was only the physical injuries to his family that were dismissed because of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness. Unconsciousness can range anywhere from sleep walking to an epileptic fit. The person has no control over his actions, no awareness of his actions, and no intent to do any of his actions. He is unconscious.”

The San Mateo Daily Journal said Mr. Wagstaffe praised his prosecutors for “examining the case and recognizing it was not supported by the facts.” The D.A. told the Palo Alto Daily Post that they “avoided the possibility that Mr. Jaffer would be wrongfully convicted.”

Mr. Clancy said: “This should put an end to the spread of misinformation and gossip that has prevented Mr. Jaffer from returning to his role at Vungle, the start-up he founded.”

Lets just take this one simple sentence by Terry and Stuart “Mr. Jaffer did not do anything whatsoever that could be considered sexual.

How does that statement stack up with this from Steve Wagstaffe on October 17, 2017.

On Tuesday, October 17, 2017, we filed a felony complaint against defendant Zain Jaffer. We charged him with five felonies and one misdemeanor as follows: 

Count I 664-288.7(B) felony oral copulation on a minor under 10 years old Count II 288(B)(1) felony forcible lewd act on a child
Count III 245(A)(4) felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury Count IV 273(A)(A) felony child abuse 

Count V 273A(A) felony child abuse
Count VI 243(B) misdemeanor battery on a police officer 

On Tuesday afternoon, the defendant was arraigned in RWC Felony Court, Judge Cristina Mazzei. The defendant appeared with retained attorney Daniel Olmos of Palo Alto. The defense motion to continue was granted and no plea was entered. The case was continued to November 1, 2017 1:30 for entry of plea and to set a preliminary hearing date. Bail was set at $300,000. I do not know whether he is still in custody or has been released on bail (you can check with the Sheriff’s Office PIO for that detail). 

The child victim was the defendant’s three year old son. The officer who was the victim of the battery was not seriously hurt. My assistant will email to you a copy of the charging document setting for the charges. 

Thanks Steve

Subject: People v. Jaffer 

Hi Emily, 

Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor: 

DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. INSTRUCTOR FURTHER ADMITTED THERE IS NO JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT INVOLVES INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER, AND THAT THE PRACTICE SESSION S WITH D AND HIS SON NEVER INVOLVED ANY KIND OF TRASH TALK OR LANGUAGE SUCH AS “PUSSY.” 

It’s fair to say that Sitrick and Company did not include TRASH TALK- PUSSY while naked straddling a 3 year old child at 4AM in the backyard or INSERTING FINGERS INTO ONE’S ANUS OR SELF-STIMULATING IN THAT MANNER.

Sitrick And Company does not mention the many articles I wrote about this case at San Mateo County News.com and that is understandable they were hired to promote a different story and that they did. The Question I have for Sitrick and Company is Did you ever contact CPS? Were you EVER concerned for the Safety and well-being of a 1 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. I did and I was and still am concerned.

Back to the AUDIT. The day the Jaffer case was dismissed District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe sent this email to his favorite Media. Notice he DOES NOT MENTION HIS MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE. WHY?

-The case is set at 1:30 in Dept. 9, Criminal Presiding Judge Stephanie G. Garratt, for the pretrial conference. The case is set on August 27, 2018 8:30 for jury trial. This is the third setting of the jury trial date since the superior court arraignment on February 15, 2018. The defendant is out of custody on $300,000 bail bond (posted on October 26, 2017). The defense attorney is Daniel Olmos (retained) and Patrick Clancey (retained).

That same day Zain Jaffer read a prepared Statement, Who wrote that prepared Statement? How many defendants go to a court hearing for a Pretrial Hearing with a written prepared Statement Thanking the District Attorney for Dismissing all of Your Charges. I know of NONE.

“I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to defend myself through the legal system, but I am aware that many others are not. Moving forward, I plan on examining ways that I can help others who are innocent and are seeking to obtain justice.”

Message to Zain Jaffer Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez is a perfect case for you to pay attention to. You will remember he was arrested 6 years ago. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conferences told the World Deputy Sheriff Lopez Smuggled a Cellphone and Drugs to a Gang Member Inmate. It turns out those Charges were completely Fabricated Who Cares?

Next Court Date for Lopez is November 16, 2020.
