September 15, 2020 Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 in favor of contacting the Attorney General of the State of California to request an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon In-Custody Death by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the Zoom meeting and explained his findings that the Deputies behavior was lawful.
Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.
The public and especially elected officials want to believe Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankeswade, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, and several Attorneys at the SMC County Counsel Office. The idea that they would deliberately mislead the public is just to much for the average citizen/resident to deal with.
I would offer the x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case (6 years this November) as a perfect example of what they are capable of doing.
Last night during the public comment time members of the public were able to communicate what they have discovered with their very limited resources. Here are just a few of the take aways.
There is no Evidence of a Shootout.
There is no Evidence the District Attorneys Office has that Sandra L. Harmon fired the Shotgun at all.
Not one Shotgun Pellet was recovered from the Crime Scene the night of May 5, 2020. Thats with over 30 people at the crime scene that night. No damage to the Patrol Vehicle just feet away, or damage anywhere for that matter.
There is no Evidence (yet) that Sheriff Deputy Dominguez turned off his AXON Body Worn Camera. Simply words and captions that he did. The AXON Log File which to this day has not been made available to the public.
Congratulations to the entire Half Moon Bay City Council for last nights vote. This is a Great first step in Oversight of Law Enforcement in San Mateo County. I was Grateful to hear Yanira Serrano-Garcia’s name mentioned last night her case and Sandra Harmon case have many similarities of misleading and false statements by Law Enforcement.
I would recommend the City Council of Millbrae do the same for the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. It’s not to late. Look at what they didn’t do for 9 minutes after they sat him up on El Camino Real.
