Sandra L. Harmon, Andres Gaurdado both Shot in Back with Hands up.

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.

Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.

In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.

The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.

They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.

They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.

The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.

Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.

San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.

David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?

Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.

The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.

After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.

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…!!!!

When you are elected Sheriff of San Mateo County will you release the Axon Log Records in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide right away.

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.

Six Years ago, Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez phone call.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

November 14, 2014 Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and I were talking on the phone. Abruptly Juan said “Got to go.” I said bye and call was ended. A couple of hours later I received a call from Juan’s girlfriend asking if I knew were Juan was I said said no why? She told me that Juan’s son told her he had been arrested at gun point in his front yard. I told her that would have explained the “Got to go” phone call. I asked her which home was he arrested at, she told me and I called Santa Rita Jail and confirmed that they had him in Jail. They couldn’t tell me why he was just in a holding cell not booked.

That was the start of so far a 6 year Journey in the San Mateo County Justice System. You will recall a Press Conference was called and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe informed the World that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Smuggled a cellphone and drugs to a Hells Angel Gang Member Inmate. Now if that were TRUE that would be a Bad Thing the good news is just 2.5 years later those completely fabricated charges were DISMISSED.

The Residents of San Mateo County and the Editors/Reporters of the 7 print media didn’t seem bothered that the District Attorney’s Office would have knowingly filed False Charges against a Sheriff Deputy.

San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector William Massey is at the heart of the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case. That is no secret.

William Massey in the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide Investigation on May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay, California. He interviewed San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Goulart. “This interview was not recorded.” Why?

I have a suggestion for Law Enforcement in San Mateo County, RECORD ALL INTERVIEWS.

Back to Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal case now 6 plus years and counting, through in a PANDEMIC, reduced Courtrooms, Public Access Restricted, and in the heart of Silicon Valley the Superior Courts of San Mateo County are NOT allowing ZOOM. Why?

I have a suggestion for San Mateo County Superior Courts. Have all Court appearances on ZOOM.

You might recall the Zain Jaffer Criminal Case October 15, 2017 He was arrested for Attempted Murder of a Child, and multiple Sexual Assault charges etc. That entire case from start to finish lasted less than 9 months. How is that possible?

I have a suggestion for San Mateo County Residents and all Elected Officials. Audits are normal, Audits are a Good Thing.

AUDIT the Zain Jaffer case and Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case, Compare the two cases, find out What Worked and What didn’t Work. This would help speed the log jam of court cases in SMC. The Jaffer Case should be taught at all the Universities and Law Schools.

Juan P. Lopez case is scheduled to be in court Monday November 16, 2020 for Jury Trial, several motions need to be heard first, trial is expected to last 4 to 6 weeks. This is going to be an exciting trial.

SMC Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case. Nov. 16, 2020

By Michael G. Stogner

If any of you have ever reported a Criminal Complaint to the Attorney General’s Office for a person other than yourself, I salute you. I have in the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case involving Hacking of the California DMV Computer System. I can assure it is NOT EASY to do. As you can see by the title former Sheriff Deputy Lopez’s criminal case is still ongoing and next week will be the 6 year mark.

San Mateo County residents should AUDIT the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez 6 yr criminal case and Zain Jaffer less than 9 MONTH case.

Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

Thank You for your quick response, let me see if I can make this more clear. The State of California data base for DMV was hacked by someone and I believe that someone is from San Mateo County Law Enforcement. DMV doesn’t even know about this. I think DMV should be notified and if you won’t do it I will. The same thing happened with the Federal data base.
Thank You

Dear Mr. Stogner, 

Thank you for your correspondence to the Office of the Attorney General regarding a complaint against a local law enforcement agency or employee. We appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention.  If you would like to file a complaint against a law enforcement agency or officer, it is the Department of Justice general policy that local governments will be primarily responsible for citizen complaints against law enforcement agencies or employees of law enforcement agencies, and that appropriate local resources (e.g. sheriff or police department, district attorney, citizens review commission, and/or grand jury in the area of jurisdiction) be utilized for resolution of such complaints prior to a request for intervention by the Attorney General. The Attorney General will review citizen complaints against a law enforcement agency or its employees for possible investigation when substantive allegations of unlawful conduct are made and all appropriate local resources for redress have been exhausted. You should first direct your complaint to the local law enforcement agency.  Every law enforcement agency in California is required to establish a procedure to investigate citizens’ complaints (Penal Code Section 832.5). A written description of the procedure is available from all law enforcement agencies. If a resolution of your complaint is not obtained through this procedure, you should write to the county district attorney and county grand jury in the county where the law enforcement agency is located. Most complaints against local law enforcement can be resolved by contacting the aforementioned agencies. If these agencies do not act on your complaint within a reasonable period of time, you may write to the Attorney General’s Office.  Your correspondence should include specific information about misconduct that violates state law, the details of your efforts to resolve the complaint with the local authorities, copies of your complaint(s) to the local authorities and copies of their response(s). Correspondence that does not contain this information cannot be acted upon. Thank you again for contacting our office.  We hope this information will be helpful to you. Sincerely,Victims’ Services Unit(ra)

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos couldn’t say Chinedu V. Okobi’s name.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd.

October 19, 2020 there was a Zoom Meeting that was hosted by two Councilmembers of the Town of Portola Valley.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was just one of the panelists.

Most of the panelists mentioned George Floyd’s name who I think any reasonable person who watched the video of him being murdered by a Police Officer would want that to stop. But most did not mention San Mateo County’s Chinedu V. Okobi who was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018 on El Camino Real, Millbrae/San Bruno.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos mentioned George Floyd Tragedy, not Homicide by police. He then mentioned “A Tragic Incident in Millbrae. Tasers ” No mention of Chinedu V. Okobi the 36 year old Father of a daughter, A Moorehouse Graduate, minding his own business simply walking while black on the sidewalk at 1PM in the afternoon. No 911 call, No Crime committed, No Guns, No Drugs etc. He was Tased 7 times, struct with extended baton, dogpiled by Six Sheriff Employees and finally sprayed in the face with O.C. Spray by the CSO Employee who was left out of the Sheriff’s and District Attorneys Press Release.

No mention of CSO Joesph Gonzales
Multiple False Statements
by Sheriff Carlos Bolanos

Sheriff Bolanos went on to say “I don’t believe that individual was killed by Taser.” That individuals name he is referring to is Chinedu V. Okobi, he can’t say it. He doesn’t mention the O.C. Spray to the face at close range after being tased 7 times, and dogpiled by Six.

Sheriff Bolanos went on to say that “AED’s are now in all Sheriff Patrol Vehicles.” I say so what, if you don’t use the AED what difference does it make how many you have. Sheriff Bolanos knows that his Six Employees didn’t provide any life saving measures for the next 8 minutes to Chinedu V. Okobi after he was handcuffed and sat up with his head slumped forward assuring his death. An AED was ONSCENE and not used.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe provided a highly edited and captioned video 5 months after the Homicide, which provides NO Evidence of Life Saving Measures being provided to Chinedu Okobi. When the EMT finally got to Okobi he was flatlined, they provided Chest compressions for another 8 minutes while he was handcuffed behind his back, they only took off handcuffs to put his dead body on the gurney. Sheriff Bolanos knows all of this.

Here is the Video you will notice no mention of the SIXTH Sheriff Employee. Remember “Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.”

Half Moon Bay asks A.G. to Conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation.

By Michael G. Stogner

That in it’s self is Historical for any City in San Mateo County, to Question Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Version of events in the Shooting Death a Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California.

September 28, 2020 Letter to The Honorable Xavier Becerra and Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair.

I’m just going to talk about Bullet Point 1 and 4

#1 The first deputy turned off his body camera in violation of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office policy.

The City was asked to Identify the Deputy so the public would know who the City was talking about. They chose not to.

Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe have told the world that Sheriff Deputy Dominguez turned off his Body Worn Camera BWC. To this day that is all that it is. The WORD of the Sheriff and District Attorney. There is NO EVIDENCE provided (AXON LOG RECORDS) to prove that statement to be TRUE. As a matter of Fact, the San Mateo County Counsel has done everything possible to make sure the AXON LOG RECORDS do not get released to the PUBLIC. Just ask John Ullom.

#4 Although the Deputies have said that they fired at Ms. Harmon form some distance away from her, certain pistol shell casing were found very near Ms. Harmon’s body. In addition there were inconsistencies in the location of casings recovered at the scene.

You wouldn’t know from reading Bullet point #4 that the subject was Tampering with Evidence at a Crime Scene. Specifically the moving of and placing 3 Pistol Shell Casings from one location to another.

This Tampering with Evidence at a Crime scene is kind of a Big Deal.

The 3 Pistol Shell Casings caused 2 Bullet Holes that was never mentioned in the Official reports. This alone changes the ENTIRE OFFICIAL REPORT.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Does release BWC Video and Audio under 24 Hours.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Just Not to the Public.

I have been recommending for years that Law Enforcement provide the Unedited Body Worn Camera, and MAV Dash Camera Video and Audio within the first 24 Hours. It turns out Sheriff Bolanos does release it, the question is to whom?

Update: 8:44 AM That person has been identified as Jamie Draper of the District Attorney’s Office.

In the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay California, San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Jon Sebring authorized Someone to access the Evidence.com a data site owned by AXON Inc. The same company that manufactures the devices Law Enforcement uses, Tasers, BWC, MAV Video and Remote Microphone etc.

How do I know this?

Involved Deputy John Baba – BWC Analysis 

On May 6, 2020 I received an Email via Evidence.com sent by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Jon Sebring granting me access to the uploaded Body Worn Camera (BWC) and Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage from the Officer Involved Critical Incident (OICI) on May 5, 2020 in the City of Half Moon Bay. 

I located the file for the BWC footage for Involved Deputy John Baba, which I downloaded from Evidence.com. From prior experience and in speaking with Sergeant Sebring, I know that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office currently utilizes the Axon 2 Body Worn Camera (BWC) which records video at 29.98 fps. I uploaded this video file into a video processing software known as VideoMach version 5.15.1 where I was able to mark the “in” and “out” points of the portion of the video which specifically covered the entirety of the incident and was able to remove the non- pertinent portions without altering the original video. I then added overlays which included a timer in the upper left of the video frame, the title “Deputy John Baba – BWC” at the top center of the video frame and absolute frame numbers (AFNs) in the upper right corner of the video frame. Each of these overlays were placed in positions to not interfere with the activity occurring in each video frame. I then finalized the video and saved this new version under the file name “Baba BWC with AFN and timecode”. I also utilized VideoMach to decompile the finished video into 17,619 individual frames to be utilized in this report. 

So there are a couple of Questions here, Who’s is the Author of this report? I have asked San Mateo County District Attorney Senior Inspector Rick Decker that exact question yesterday, He is getting back to me.

The second Question is Why is the Sheriff’s Office providing this data in less than 24 hours to somebody who has the Authority to Edit and add CAPTIONS to promote a False Story.

The third Question, Since the District Attorney’s Office was Investigating this Homicide case, shouldn’t they have controlled the Data?

Since the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting September 15, 2020, after hearing the Eblovi Presentation by 3 speakers at the 27:30 mark, every person attending that meeting especially the City Managers, City Attorney, the Five Councilmembers, and SMC District Attorney all knew the evidence provided showed 3 shell casings were deliberately moved, That’s Evidence Tampering, 2 bullet strikes in a location that only the Eblovi Investigators even bothered to look.

Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired First was the conclusion of the Eblovi Investigation. Everyone in that meeting knew it at that moment. I was shocked I had been working on the Sandra L. Harmon case since May 5, 2020 I never saw those 3 shell casings before even though they were right there. I have gone back and reviewed several videos and photos provided by the Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office, and I can confirm the 3 shells can be seen behind Sandra L. Harmon as she is being fired at while she was Unarmed which means they were Fired First just like the Eblovi Investion reported.

That means the entire story provided to the public is False.

The Eblovi Presentation at 27:30 Mark

Thank You San Mateo Daily Journal. Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

By, Michael G. Stogner

Just because Somebody says something is true does not mean that it is.

The same is true for Captions on a Video released 40 days later.

At -9:06 you will see Deputy Dominguez Body Worn Camera working perfectly well great Resolution and Audio.

-5:11 Caption says “Deputy Dominguez Attempted contact at the Motorhome for potential witnesses.” Why is he looking for more witnesses? It goes on to say, “But instead encountered Ms. Harmon.”

-4:59 Caption: With the fast moving situation with incoming fire, Deputy Dominguez did not activate his Body Worn Camera.

The caption wording “With Incoming Fire.” Implys as fact that Sandra Harmon fired first.

“After Discharging his Service Weapon Ms. Harmon dropped the Shotgun.” That would be before Deputy Baba gets out of his car.

So Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer and several others were involved in producing this Video in the San Mateo Daily Journal Article. Here it is.

SMDJ Article

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not include the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held on September 15, 2020 by ZOOM.

In this video you will see the the first 3 public speakers presenting the Oblovi Investigation at the 27:15 mark clearly providing evidence that came from the SMC Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, it shows Tampering with Evidence 3 shell casings. a Bullet found in the side of a building, They say Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired three shots at Sandra Harmon FIRST.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe does not address the Tampering with Evidence issue, the bullet found that none of the SMC Crime Scene staff found. or that Deputy Dominguez fired First. He simple deflected and said shell casing get moved around kicked etc all the time.

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not mention that fact. I am thankful the SMDJ has finally produced a story where the public can make comments on they used to have a Community Forum for the residents to communicate with each other.

The AXON Log Records have all the data the public needs, you don’t need to rely on Sheriff Bolanos to say something on a video. To this day and for the last 5 months we only have Words and Captions that Sheriff Deputy turned off his Body Worn Camera. The AXON Log Records have been requested multiple times by HMB Resident John Ullom, and myself. The San Mateo County Counsel and the D.A.’s is refusing to provide them even though Steve Wagstaffe told the Council he has No Objection. The FIVE HMB City Council Members should have the City Attorney make the request of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos personally. Forget the SMC Counsel. This investigation is a closed matter as far as the District Attorney Office is concerned.

Please remember, Words and Captions are not Evidence,

AXON Log Records lets get them, for the family of Sandra Harmon and all of San Mateo Residents.

San Mateo County District Attorney Case Closed. Sandra L. Harmon R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

No surprise here.

Sandra Harmon

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 28, 2020 Re: Officer Involved Shooting Of Sandra Harmon On May 5, 2020 The District Attorney’s Office has completed its investigation into the shooting of Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay during a confrontation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies David Dominguez and John Baba in the parking lot of the Pasta Moon restaurant at 845 Main Street in Half Moon Bay. After a thorough investigation by Inspector James Haggarty and other inspectors with the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office, District Attorney Stephen M. Wagstaffe has concluded that while this is a tragic incident with a very sad outcome, there is no legal basis for filing criminal charges against Deputies Dominguez and Baba. District Attorney Wagstaffe has concluded that the use of force by the deputies against Sandra Harmon was legally justifiable self-defense pursuant to California Penal Code section 835a and section 196. Therefore this case is now deemed closed by this office. The letter written by District Attorney Wagstaffe to San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos Bolanos setting forth the basis for the decision declining to file criminal charges in this case is attached to this e-mail press release. Binders containing all of the reports referred to above are available for public inspection. Anyone seeking to read all or part of the reports should contact Chief Inspector John Warren of the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations at (650) 363-4074
