“Unqualified trust relationship with this partner.” Hon. Judge Lisa Novak

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

In a response to the Commission on Judicial Performance .

The Commission on Judicial Performance, established in 1960, is the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity and for disciplining judges, pursuant to article VI, section 18 of the California Constitution.

Somebody filed a complaint against Judge Novak because she notified all the Judges present at the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

The person or persons who filed the complaint was not concerned at all by the fact that a SMC Sheriff Sergeant would lie under oath in her court, the person and the CJP was only concerned that she informed all the Judges who attended.

She noted the close relationship between the Sheriffs Office and the Court and cited the need to have an unqualified trust relationship with this partner.

Lets look at this unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.

In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi three False News Releases. Omitting 6th Sheriff Employee for starters.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI arrested by RWCPD September 14, 2019 Sheriff Bolanos refuses to release the Booking Photo. Why?

San Mateo County former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case going for more than 5 years with the sole purpose to cause harm to him mentally and financially. The public might recall the big Press Conference claiming Nobody is above the law in San Mateo County and Charging Deputy Lopez with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel member in Jail. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos knew there was No Evidence to support those charges.

These are just three current examples unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

An older example when Carlos G. Bolanos was Undersheriff 2010 the Brave Female Deputy reporting the 46 San Mateo County Sheriff Male Employees receiving and sharing Porn and Rape Video on County Computers.

It is my experience that Judges in San Mateo County have allowed Sheriff Employees and District Attorney Employees and County Counsel Employees to lie/file false instruments and give False Testimony on a daily basis, this is the Norm it shouldn’t be.

I say you can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

Lets find out exactly what happened after Hon. Judge Lisa Novak made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Top Two Investigators being Investigated. By Who?

By Michael G. Stogner

This might come as a surprise to the residents of San Mateo County but Attorneys file False Instruments with the Courts every single day, Would the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office do it? Sure it’s possible, lets find out. The District Attorney’s Office had 73 days to Investigate Massey and Warren, why the long delay. Who’s left in the D.A.’s office to conduct an Internal Investigation of the top two anyway?

Update: 1/10/2020 San Mateo County Counsel Attorney Joseph F. Charles appeared and his two clients D.A. Inspectors William Massey and John Warren remained outside the courtroom for several hours. They did not take the witness stand but never the less it was good to see them there. Mr. Charles asked for and got his Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 SEALED. Why would he ask for that?

Another attorney (female) from San Mateo Counsel Office representing the Five Sheriff Employees who were there to testify and one unnamed Sheriff Employee involved in a Belmont “incident” while not on duty many years ago, and had nothing to do with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ( according to her) was there to make sure the Belmont Police report was not only not made public but that Juan Lopez’s Attorneys could not see it either. The Judge temporarily SEALED it to give the Government time to file a motion to seal.

Note: Attorney David Washington sued the City of Belmont November 13, 2014 for not providing the Police Report involving Sgt. Jason Edward Peardon, I know this because I filed the suit and personally served the City of Belmont Attorney. The PADP did a story on it the next day, the attorney claimed the suit was unnecessary and a phone could have resolved this matter. Within a couple of days the City of Belmont retained a Law Firm across the bay and Never provided the Police Report.

The Statement by San Mateo County Counsel that “Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon has nothing to do with the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.” case is Laughable, He is the Juan Lopez case. Finally the Belmont Police Report surfaces only to be SEALED.

According to a Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 by Deputy Counsel Joseph F. Charles SBN 228456 in Case No. NF433910A former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. Mr. Lopez’s next court date is Tomorrow Jan. 09,2020 9:00AM SSF court Hon. Judge Danny Chou.

San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers Office just filed a motion Yesterday Jan. 7, 2020 to Quash Subpoenas for District Attorney’s Office Senior Inspector William Massey and Chief Inspector John Warren to testify tomorrow.

“In response to the October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint served by Defendant Lopez, the San Mateo County District Attorney Office has commenced an Internal Investigation into  the allegations made by Defendant in his October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint has recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.” This internal investigation subsumes all of the factual issues raised in the Citizen Complaint which include events that transpired as far back as 2015. More importantly Defendant’s criminal trial is likely to reveal the names of witnesses, events, information and additional evidence directly relevant to the District Attorney Office internal investigation into alleged misconduct (and potentially criminal misconduct) allegedly engaged in by law enforcement personnel.

How do they know when x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s underlying criminal trial is going to be completed?

What date was this Investigation opened and Who is conducting it?

Why wasn’t this Investigation opened several years ago when Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez filed a lawsuit with the exact same complaint?

thumbnail-2Senior Inspector John Warren, Lets hope this is on his off time.

Update 5:40 PM 1/8/2020 No response from San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers yet.

Michael:
I hope you also had a good holiday season.
As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record.  Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.

Best,

John

Chinedu Okobi R.I.P. In-Custody Death.

The Taser Part of the story.

October 3, 2018 Millbrae, California Chinedu Okobi died In-Custody of Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Not Five.

October 15, 2018 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe  said “Two Deputies used their tasers multiple times and Okobi died.” That’s 12 days the DA has had the facts.

Reporter Roz Plater NBC Bay Area News Two Deputies

October 17, 2018 Senior Inspector Bill Massey receives the AXON data for the Tasers from Sergeant Bob Pronske. It shows 7 deployments from Deputy Wang’s Taser 6 with full 5 seconds discharges and the 7th with a 4 second discharge. So that is 1 Deputy with 7 activations.

Now add at some unknown date Rick Decker who’s boss is Inspector Bill Massey and he changes the story to a few activations.

So we went from Two Deputies to One Deputy with 7 activations, to One Deputy with a few activations.

How does this information keep changing?

All reports can be found pages 53-54 on the District Attorney’s website.

Commission on Judicial Performance (CJP) gets low marks in Audit.

April 25, 2019
2016-137

The Governor of California
President pro Tempore of the Senate
Speaker of the Assembly
State Capitol
Sacramento, California 95814

Dear Governor and Legislative Leaders:

At the request of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, the California State Auditor presents this audit report of the Commission on Judicial Performance (CJP). CJP is the agency charged with investigating complaints about judicial misconduct and deciding whether to discipline California judges for violations of the code of judicial ethics, and our review found that CJP must address the following weaknesses:

  • It does not consistently take all reasonable steps when it investigates alleged misconduct.
  • Its structure and disciplinary processes do not align with best practices.
  • It has not worked sufficiently to increase its transparency and accessibility.

In about one-third of the cases we reviewed, we found that CJP’s investigators did not take all reasonable steps to determine the existence or extent of alleged misconduct, such as inappropriate demeanor or improper delegation of duties to court staff. These missed steps include not speaking with all relevant witnesses, not obtaining additional evidence, and not taking a broad approach to determining misconduct in light of a pattern of allegations. Furthermore, CJP’s structure—as a single entity that both investigates alleged judicial misconduct and makes decisions about the appropriate level of discipline—results in judges facing potential discipline from a body of commissioners that is privy to unfounded allegations of misconduct. CJP also delegates responsibility for evidentiary hearings on alleged misconduct to three judges appointed by the Supreme Court of California, a practice that falls short of the voters’ intent to increase the public’s role in judicial discipline with the passage of Proposition 190 in 1994. Finally, CJP has not taken steps to hold meetings that are open to the public or to accept electronically submitted complaints, despite decades of public scrutiny about its lack of transparency and inaccessibility.

CJP’s operations and structure must change significantly to address the issues that this audit revealed. CJP can change its internal policies to address concerns about the planning and supervision of its investigations. However, changes to CJP’s structure will require an amendment to the California Constitution and CJP will need to inform the Legislature about any related funding needs as it adjusts its practices.

Respectfully submitted,

ELAINE M. HOWLE, CPA
California State Auditor

SMC’s Thomas A. Swift Electric Rifle (TASER) Forum.

The real topic of Excessive & Unnecessary Use of Force was not broached.

February 11, 2019 San Mateo County Supervisor’s Committee on Thomas A. Swift Electric Rifle (TASER) Forum. Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom thought that this would satisfy the Good and Concerned Citizens of San Mateo County and would be a lot easier than actually Supervising Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that they Illegally Appointed on July 12, 2016, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe who is refusing to release the videos and audio recordings which contain stupid statements by the 5 deputies “do you want water.”

Ginny Kraus (holding up sign) has said from day one “This will NOT go away.” She means it.

This is just a small sample of the citizens that have been showing up consistently for 132 days requesting/demanding honesty from the Elected Officials of San Mateo County. They understand that accidents happen, sometimes in custody deaths occur by accident, It’s what was done right after a death that makes the difference. How many seconds after Chinedu stopped breathing was CPR administered and by who and for how long? This information is what the recordings will provide to the public. D.A. Steve Wagstaffe is refusing to release those recordings.

J.R. Stone KRON video 58 second mark

Chindeu V. Okobi was Murdered by 5 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on October 3, 2018 on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California. All 5 Deputies failed to handcuff him when he was tased. Instead one officer backed away, another raised an extended baton, not one got on the ground to handcuff him before he composed himself and got up to save his own life and run away. He did not accomplish that as they continued to torture him to death, after passing according to Ebele they grabbed him like a bag of garbage sat him which caused his head to lean forward closing his airway which assured his death. No CRP given.

So many great people attended the meeting several who have lost relatives to excessive and unnecessary force which is protected in San Mateo County. I would like to thank the majority of Sheriff Deputies who ignored their Union President D.J. Wozniak’s call to arms to show up in force to intimate the public. I saw very few of the deputies there.

Recount Measure W, Simple questions go unanswered. There is a Deadline, they know it.

mc_portrait_squareArtboard 1

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

Recount of Measure W.  Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf to file.
Good Morning San Mateo County Leaders,
I’m requesting you to step in and supply the public with the following information. The reason I am asking you is simple Mark Church has failed to answer these questions.
How much will it cost for the recount of Measure W?
What is the deadline for filing? Where to file?
As the Supervisors know I have said many times they should use taxpayer money from the general fund to pay this expense, reason being they invested $350,000 of taxpayer money to be used against the taxpayers.
The Measure W recount is a perfect example of transparency and it will demonstrate how SMC’s current system works or doesn’t work. I think we all knew a recount was going to happen on Measure we just didn’t know which side was going to demand it, now we do.
I think we can all agree for Mr. Church to withhold this critical information from the public is a bad idea.
Thank You in advance

Ca. Governor Debate Newsom & Cox

 

gavin newsom john cox_1535589141878.jpg_96034593_ver1.0_900_675This was the only debate I found, seems strange for such an important position that no televised debates took place.

I have learned from San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf who ran as a write in candidate for Sheriff in the June 2018 election, to not vote until the last day.

Do your own homework, think for yourself, vote.
