A federal judge on Thursday July 7, 2022 sentenced Derek Chauvin to 21 years in prison for violating George Floyd’s civil rights.
Violating Civil Rights sounds so much nicer then Murder doesn’t it?
San Mateo County Residents, do any of you think Chinedu Valentine Okobi’s Civil Rights were not violated on October 3, 2018 in Millbrae at 1:00 PM in the middle of the afternoon by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees? I do.
CSO Joseph Gonzales, Sergeant David Weidner, Deputy Joshua Wang, Deputy Bryan Watt, Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti, Deputy John DeMartini.
The Governments Video Ommits CSO Joseph Gonzales like magic. 7:02-7:05 mark who do you see?
Upadte: This Motion to Destroy has been continued to January 3, 2022
Today December 20, 2021 at 10:00 AM in Courtroom 2A the Hon Judge Barbara Mallach will rule on a Motion to Destroy all of the records in the People vs. Zainali Jaffer case 17NF012415A. The Public is invited to attend in person.
Who filed the Motion to Destroy all records and Body Worn Camera Video?
I call this the “Magic Case” because of the “Magic Meeting” held on June 7, 2018
Who is speaking for the two Children?
Diminished Capacity is No Excuse for Criminal Conduct
This case should be taught at every law school in the United States of America. NOT Destroyed.
Zain Jaffer the other day I wrote about you assisting Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez with his 7 year legal defense expenses now over $300,000, and I see that tomorrow David Khan of Daly City has a court appearance in front of Hon. Judge Barbara Mallach in Courtroom 2A at 10:00 AM just like you do. David Khan would be another person I recommend to you for your help. The other three families mentioned above have lost loved ones to Homicides by San Mateo County Law Enforcement. They could use you help against the Government in those cases.
Your prepared statement that you read when your case was Dismissed, July 2, 2018
“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.”
In the last 3.5 years I have not seen anyone that you have helped or even asked about for that matter.
Thank You, in advance for considering these cases. If interested I have many more cases for you.
UPDATED NOVEMBER 22, 2021 Public Access Policy to Superior Court of California San Mateo County.
The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.
Updated 11/22/21 – The listen-only public access lines are no longer in effect; proceedings are open to the public to attend in person.
San Mateo County Superior Court is committed to continuing public access to court proceedings during and after the pandemic emergency. Due to COVID-19 and public health concerns, the Court has shifted to convene some court proceedings remotely in order to eliminate the need for individuals to attend hearings in person. This is to reduce the number of visits by the public to the courthouses, thereby minimizing potential infection of the public and staff.
At this time, members of the public may attend a court proceeding in person. The Court is committed to maintaining a safe workplace for our staff and the public. Each courtroom can accommodate a different number of seats in the audience. You will need to check-in with the bailiff when you enter the courtroom. The bailiff will inform you as to whether or not there is an available seat, or if capacity has been reached. If capacity has been reached, you may remain outside the courtroom until someone leaves. Face coverings are required at all times inside the courthouse.
Zoom may not be used for public access without the approval of the judicial officer.
San Mateo County News.com first reported this Important Change in Policy on November 24, 2021.
San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa aka “Showboater” knows a great opportunity to Fund Raise when he sees one. Today he is holding his official Kickoff Campaign for Congress. He might as well, he has done nothing to make San Mateo County Safer or to Eliminate Corruption in San Mateo County that I am aware of.
Most recently in the (retired) San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez criminal case which has been going on for 7 years, Superior Court Judge Joseph Scott, Court Clerk Katrina Bihl, and Court Reporter Jocelyne Fakouri, Conspired to commit a crime, then did commit the crime of PC115A filing a False Instrument with the court which by itself is a Felony. All three made false statements under the penalty of Perjury. David Canepa thinks that is cool. I don’t.
A reasonable person would think the President of the Board of Supervisors would be Interested in making San Mateo County Safer for the ordinary resident, Nobody is Above the law, etc. Not David Canepa. Over the the last 7 years I have reported the Illegal conduct against Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, by multiple San Mateo County Employees, I can’t recall a single time that David Canepa showed any interest.
When Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. San Mateo County’s George Floyd, was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his Public Information Officer Immediately issued two False Press Releases both omitting the sixth very involved CSO Joseph Gonzales. David Canepa approved of that behavior.
I took the above video, I drove up from Monterey County to attend that meeting I had every intention of speaking on behalf of Chinedu V. Okobi and his family. I sat in the front row next to SMCSO Deputy Heintz Puschendorf the entire meeting, after listening to all of the speakers and watching Supervisor David Canepa refusing to pay any attention to all of the speakers, He wouldn’t even look at them, I chose not to speak.
San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus and SMCSO ret. Captain Jeffrey C. Kearnan and Supervisor President David Canepa all thought it was a Great Idea for the Sheriff’s Office to Investigate Itself. A reasonable person would know that is NUTS.
Congresswoman Jackie Speier announced this week she will not run for re-election.
In 2008 she demanded the Board of Supervisors Investigate the April 21, 2007, FBI Sting called Operation Dollhouse where Under Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was Caught and Detained Inside a single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada at 9:30 PM. To this day 14 years later nobody has asked Carlos G. Bolanos why he entered that disgusting smelling home.
It was either to have sex with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor or a more logical reason is it was a Drug Deal of 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000 Cash.
San Mateo County President of the Board of Supervisors David Canepa has never wanted to know the answer and he has been fine with now Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lying about it for 14 years.
I think Supervisor President David Canepa should resign from the Board effective today so that he and his TEAM can devote FULL TIME and effort into something he is really passionate about, which is Fund Raising and promoting himself. I wish him the best.
Mark Melville has folded, he recently contacted San Mateo County News.com, to inform me that he will not be a candidate in the 2022 election. I wish him all the best, I remember when I first met him in Foster City, and I said the same thing I said to Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez, when I first met him and he first announced he was going to run against Sheriff Greg Munks in 2014. I said “You are either very Brave or Very Naive.”
Now that that has been settled it makes room for another candidate and possibly more for the Election 2022. Candidates filing window is February 14, 2022-March 7, 2022.
At this moment there are 2 Candidates for Sheriff, both of them thought it would be great idea to Investigate the Sheriff Activities League (SAL) Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Investigation. For a reasonable thinking person that would be a RED FLAG, non-starter, It would be known as a Conflict of Interest in most circles.
I look forward to see how things shake out. That leaves 7 months for the Residents to ask the questions they have for the Candidates, That is plenty of time.
Sunday, October 3rd at 2:00 pm, Chinedu Okobi Remembrance Rally led by the San Mateo NAACP, Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, Island United Church, Justice For Chinedu, the families of victims who died at the hands of law enforcement, community leaders and members.
Location: 400 County Center Building, Redwood City, California.
San Mateo County Residents don’t know very much about Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide, and that is exactly what the Government wants. When I say government I’m also including the Media/Newspapers.
Chinedu Valentine Okobi, is San Mateo County’s George Floyd, the difference is the world saw George Floyd Murdered because of a very brave 17 year old girl who videoed it and placed it on the internet before Law Enforcement, Elected Officials could get there hands on it. That is what happened in San Mateo County.
First lets start at the Top with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He is a LIAR, that is NO SECRET.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Omits Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales name. He was Very Involved.
Chinedu Valentine Okobi, was a 36 year old Father, Son, Brother, Moorehouse College Graduate, who was simply walking on the sidewalk on a sunny afternoon in Millbrae, when SMC Sheriff Deputy Wang got attracted to him.
I will be joining this group of very good humans tomorrow. I remember when I first met them at a Board of Supervisor Meeting, I thought to myself, These are my People.
Update since this article first published Defense Attorney Patrick Clancy filed a motion to seal the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts of January 31, 2018 Motion granted by supposedly a SMC Judge. I say that because the DA doesn’t know who signed it.
Please tell me the name of the judge who signed the Seal order. I am unable to recognize it from my copy.
We have compared it to the entire rooster, It would be nice if the name was printed below the signature.

This is not a new idea former Town of Atherton Finance Director John Johns R.I.P. made this recommendation in 2010. It was a good recommendation then and is now.
With the Zain Jaffer x Vungle CEO case 7 felonies including oral copulation of a child and assault of a Hillsborough Police Officer simply disappearing from the legal process after a private meeting between the District Attorney’s Office and Mr. Jaffer’s attorneys. DA Steve Wagstaffe believed he was guilty of these charges from day one for almost 8 months, right up until the private meeting at the District Attorney”s Office which included a presentation of the entire defense. That is what a trial is for.
Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti became the Judge and Jury in the Zain Jaffer case.
How many cases in the last 10 years has a Defense Team made a private presentation at the DA’s office?
How many of those presentations resulted in the District Attorney filing a motion to dismiss the entire case?
Judges are the last layer of Oversight for the People of California. When they see a suspicious or questionable motion from the District Attorney’s Office they should not only deny it, they should report it to the State Bar. This motion by Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti was both suspicious & questionable. Now we just have to find out Why?
Why did Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt grant the motion to dismiss? There already was a Preliminary Hearing that determined there was enough evidence for every charge to move forward. She could have denied the motion, Wagstaffe could have tested his evidence on the Grand Jury to get an indictment if he thought his case was weak. Instead he choose to dismiss the entire case and Judge Garratt assisted him in that effort.
* Those Who Matter* email from Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, he was noticing the residents of San Mateo County that there is a special group of people above the law.
e-mail sent 4/25/07 10:20 AM
Greg and Carlos
Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time. To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by tomorrow.
My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.
For those readers who don’t know this e-mail was written to San Mateo County Sheriff and UnderSheriff days after they both were caught and detained as Customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including at least one child. April 21, 2007 FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada.
The Matthew Graves (also 30 yr. old man) case should be looked at, He was sentenced to 34 years in prison, 4 of those years are for violating a Restraining Order. This should be compared to Mr. David Bohannon being arrested twice by the Menlo Park Police Department. The second time was for violating a Restraining Order, The exact same thing Matthew Graves got 4 years in prison for. The difference is Matthew Graves got charged, tried, convicted and sentenced. Mr. Bohannon no criminal case number filed, no court appearances, no trial, extracted from the legal process.
