I would love to see all of the behind the scenes e-mails and memos of the Elected Leaders and County Counsel on this lawsuit. San Mateo County “Those Who Matter” know that Moss Beach resident Lenny Mendonca and McKinsey & Company go back a long way.
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. was a large well educated Black Man walking on the sidewalk southbound on El Camino Real in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Anne Oliva was a Millbrae City council member that day, and has been Silent all this time. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Bolanos said he was. He did Not Immediately assault Sheriff Deputy Wang after exiting his patrol vehicle like Sheriff Bolanos said he was.
Chinedu V. Okobi was San Mateo County’s George Floyd.
How can anybody support Law Enforcement in San Mateo County that Lies to the Public? Ask Anne Oliva
It’s not surprising that San Mateo County Community Leaders support this Dishonest behavior. The question is Why?
Does anybody really think it is a good idea to have children bonding with an Organization that is top heavy (45) men who share Porn and Violent Rape Videos on San Mateo County Computers at the Sheriff’s Office. I don’t

City of Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie has kept a tight lid on any and all information regarding the April 7, 2021 Homicide of Roger Allen R.I.P. by somebody from her Police Department. Here is what we know for sure Roger Allen is dead, that’s about it. We don’t know who shot him or why 4 DCPD Officers were at a disabled truck with a flat time in the first place.
Who’s gun fired shots? See how simple this is? An examination of the officer’s gun showed that a single round was fired.
Why would Daly City Elected Officials and Staff go the opposite way of America in 2021. I would guess it’s simple Math. They are betting this will settle with a payment of Taxpayer money and Never get to a Jury trial. That way a NDA will be signed and No more information will be made public then we know today.
Jeff Regan has it right: Why do voters put up with this? You can’t recall a city manager, but you can recall a city council.
Public comment about any subject should be at the beginning of city council meetings. Then, public comment for each agendized item. Daly City not having body and dash cameras, their lack of transparency regarding a police homicide and making residents wait several hours for public comment are done intentionally to thwart democracy and the rights of the citizens who pay the salaries of city staff, and police department personnel. Where is the council oversight? Why do voters put up with this? You can’t recall a city manager, but you can recall a city council.
Just north of Daly City, San Francisco Police shot a man on May 7, 2021, He wasn’t killed but here is what happened the Police Chief Identified the Officer who shot him and he Apologized to the public.
San Francisco police chief apologizes for officer shooting Bullet struck burglary suspect in the wrist during scuffle on May 7 POLICE CHIEF William Scott says the shooting of Xavier Pittman “simply should not have happened.” (Justin Sullivan Getty Images) By Lila Seidman and Richard Winton San Francisco Police Chief William “Bill” Scott has offered a rare public apology for an officer’s recent shooting of an unarmed car burglary suspect. Xavier Pittman Jr., 23, was shot in the wrist by plainclothes Officer Zachary McAuliffe as he was being arrested May 7. Pittman is a suspect in a series of car burglaries. He was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said. An examination of the officer’s gun showed that a single round was fired. “The shooting of Mr. Pittman quite simply should not have happened,” Scott said during an online town hall on Thursday. “I’m deeply sorry that Mr. Pittman was shot during this incident, and I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Mr. Pittman, his family and his friends.” Scott added a wider public apology, saying, “We know you expect us to get this right, and we know how traumatic it is to see these types of incidents — especially when they should not have happened.” The chief said the shooting remains under investigation. He said plainclothes officers are exempt from wearing body cameras, but that video surveillance from a nearby business recorded the shooting. The incident began when police received 911 calls that several suspects in a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross were breaking into vehicles all over the city, from Golden Gate Park to Fisherman’s Wharf. Shortly after noon, U.S. Park Police spotted the Mitsubishi in the Presidio area of San Francisco and tried to stop it, but the vehicle sped away. McAuliffe and a colleague found the vehicle and the suspects at Jack London Alley and Varney Place, police said. As some suspects fled in the Mitsubishi, the officers apprehended Pittman and the shot was fired. Video footage shows two officers running in the alley toward Pittman with their guns drawn. “Plainclothes officer No. 1 grabbed Mr. Pittman, and both fell to the ground,” a San Francisco police commander said during the town hall. In the scuffle, he said, the officer’s handgun fired and struck Pittman “in the left wrist area.” According to the video, one officer can be heard yelling: “Police Department! Police!” Immediately afterward, a gunshot is heard. Pittman, who was unarmed, is heard saying he has been shot and requests an ambulance. McAuliffe “did not intend for his firearm to go off,” his attorney Mike Hinckley said. “He sincerely apologizes to Mr. Pitman and wishes him a full speedy recovery.” Pittman’s attorney, Adante Pointer, said it is “unclear whether it was an accidental discharge or intentional, as the video is not terribly clear.” He said his client did not do anything to warrant deadly force being used against him. He said the officer was acting recklessly. “For safety reasons, officers are trained not to have their gun in hand when they go hands on with a person in order to prevent this very thing or something worse from happening,” he said. “This could have easily been a fatal shooting of my client or of another person in the vicinity.” The Police Department has yet to determine whether the gunshot was intended. The San Francisco district attorney will decide whether the officer involved will face criminal charges. Pittman was arrested on suspicion of second-degree car burglary, conspiracy, possession of stolen property and committing a felony while on release. Police said the other suspects remain at large. The Mitsubishi was found abandoned in Oakland. Investigators also recovered a large amount of stolen property from the auto burglaries.
Daly City Council and City Manager Shawnna Maltbie What are YOU doing? Roger Allen Homicide by DCPD.
Thank You Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for finally not Killing a man in San Carlos the other day. What brought your deputies to him in the first place? It seems like he knew his rights and your deputies finally did the right thing and left him alone. It’s a shame you chose not to do that before now.
Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P. June 3, 2014 would be alive today if you had a plan.
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. October 3, 2018 would be alive today if you had a plan.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. May 5, 2020 would be alive today if you had a plan.
NEWS RELEASE Incident Date and Time: April 30, 2021 @ 2:26 pm
Location: 500 block of Quarry Road, San Carlos Summary: Deputies Added ECIT Resources and Training has Positive Outcome in
Disengagement of Person in Crisis During Welfare Check.
On Friday, April 30, 2021, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 500 block of Quarry Road in San Carlos to conduct a welfare check on an individual who was reported as possibly experiencing a mental health crisis. While enroute, deputies learned the subject was also in possession of a knife. Deputies staged a safe distance away and made phone contact with several parties at the scene, including the individual’s social worker.
Deputies learned the individual did not make any threats, commit any crimes, and no one was being held against their will. The individual had no interest in speaking with his social worker in person or with deputies on the phone. Approximately one hour after arriving on scene, deputies determined it was in everyone’s best interest that they disengage and leave the scene without forcing contact with the individual. Deputies followed-up with the individuals social worker the following day and learned the individual had stabilized and was no longer experiencing a mental health crisis.
This response highlights the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s Enhanced Crisis Intervention Training program (ECIT) and how our crisis response has aligned with recent law changes (California AB-392) as well as community expectations. Unless there is imminent danger or threats to others, deputies will conduct pre-assessments, gather as much information as possible, and form a plan for de-escalation prior to attempting contact with individual in crisis.
We understand the mere presence of uniformed deputies can escalate situations, and we will utilize time and distance whenever possible to assess the best course of action for each situation. In cases like this, by modifying our response and not making immediate contact to check the welfare of an individual in crisis, we maintain the option to disengage, which in some cases, provides the individual the opportunity to self-de-escalate.
In many cases where mental illness is involved, crisis communication and verbal de-escalation can prove to be challenging because their disability may affect their ability to understand or comply with commands from deputies. For this reason, disengagement in these cases is sometimes the best de- escalation option. Deputies can then refer the case to the Sheriff’s Office Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, who will then form a plan to contact the subject at a later time if appropriate, to assess for resources.

San Mateo County Voters can elect Mark Melville as Sheriff in 2022 and several things will change for the better the first day he is in office. These two gentleman will be removed from involvement of the Sheriff’s Office.
He has promised to release the Axon Log Records involving the May 5, 2020 Homicide by Law Enforcement of Sandra Lee Harmon. Currently there is only one person who is obstructing those records being made public. That person is San Mateo Counsel Attorney David Silberman. Why are those records important, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos told the world that Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera, He is the Deputy who fired 11 shots at Ms. Harmon including while she was unarmed with her hands above her head with her back towards the deputy. Ms. Harmon received 3 FATAL SHOTS to her back. Has Sheriff Carlos Bolanos ever lied to the residents of San Mateo County before of course he has too many times to mention here. The release of the Axon Log Records would VERIFY Sheriff Bolanos’ statement “Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera” Who would object to that except David Silberman, Why?
I recently asked Candidate Mark Melville for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, When he is elected Sheriff will he be replacing David Silberman as the attorney for the Sheriff’s Office? His short answer was Absolutely.
Michael, My short answer to your question is, absolutely. I know County Counsel is in place to “Protect” the County. I don’t believe the Sheriff’s Office is being well represented by Mr. Silberman. But then again, I have no idea what information he is being fed by Sheriff Bolanos. I believe in 100% transparency. If you are telling the truth, there is nothing to hide. You owe it to all the constituents of the County to properly identify the situation / incident and you tell everyone what it is you are going to do to rectify it. And, I might add you do it in a timely manner..!! Mark——
I can not think of a more impactful vote then the next Election for Sheriff of San Mateo County 2022.
You put in one good human being at the top and everything changes. Imagine that.
The City Manager is responsible for the Police Departments behavior. She is also responsible for the Agenda Items on council meetings and when Public Comment takes place during the meetings etc. Most cities in San Mateo County have the Public Comment at the beginning of the meeting and the time allowed to speak is in some cities is 3 minutes. There is a Zoom link for the meeting and that is published on the City Website for everyone interested to use. At the time of the meeting the Concerned Citizens simply go to that Zoom link and they are in the meeting.
Shawnna Maltbie likes to have a little more control on the Concerned Citizens speaking their minds. She makes them register in advance for a Public Meeting including giving your home address? That’s got to give most people that welcoming feeling, that Government really wants to listen to you. Also she likes the Public Comment to be at the END of the council meetings, that really helps in having fewer comments to have to listen to. Council meetings last for hours. April 26, 2021 for example had over 130 Concerned Citizens who pre registered to speak about Roger Allen’s Homicide.
Government (I mean Shawnna) does not like the public to criticize how things are going or to ask the obvious questions. Like why 4 Daly City Police Officers were at a disabled truck with a flat tire in the first place.
“Hello we are the Daly City Police Department we are here to assist you.”
When did DCPD start competing with AAA?
Shawnna Maltbie has refused to inform the public, Who was the first Officer on the scene?
Who was the Officer that allegedly reached into a vehicle and wrestle with Roger Allen R.I.P.?
How many shots do you say were fired?
Who did you communicate with to determine your actions to withhold all of the Transparency in this Homicide?
Was it your husband Jeff Maltbie City Manager of San Carlos? Was it your Father in Law John Maltbie former San Mateo County Manager? Your sister in law Jayme Ackemann (Maltbie)?
Daly City Government is a perfect example of the Maltbie Family 101 How to run SMC Government.
It has been 34 days since Roger Allen R.I.P. was shot and killed in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in the afternoon in Daly City.
That is all San Mateo County Residents know to this day, we do know the names of the four Officers involved, Big deal.
What did Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester and SMCSO Chief Saul Lopez do to make sure the Official Government Statement from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemary Blankswade, Lieutenant Stephanie Josephson and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe “Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera,” was in fact a TRUE Statement?
The sad answer is very little. The question is Why? Why aren’t they as interested as Concerned Citizens?
It’s really SIMPLE, the AXON LOG RECORDS will verify the Government’s official statement. Who is obstructing the release of the AXON LOG RECORDS? Answer San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman. Why?
Below the Video created by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that was made public 41 days after the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon this False statement is made, The incident involved a woman, armed with a shotgun, who fired at a deputy. When did she fire? Where was she when this occurred? How many shots did she fire?
There is no mention of the Three Fatal Shots into Sandra’s back, the fact that she was shot at while unarmed and hands were above her head while her back was facing Deputy Dominguez, or the fact that Three shell casings were moved to support the governments official story.
A reasonable person would know that those are important facts the public should have been told by Sheriff Bolanos.
“Our goal in releasing these videos, while still early in the investigation, is to provide our community with as much information as possible when we have a tragic incident such as this,” Bolanos said.
Is that a true/honest statement? Remember the Video was released 41 days after Sandra L. Harmon was killed.
For the last 20 years Iv’e been asking the Supervisors to Make San Mateo County Safer. Make sure the Sheriff and PIO issue honest and accurate Press/News Releases when an In Custody Homicide by Law Enforcement happens. October 3, 2018, Chinedu V. Okobi and May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon are just two recent examples. When Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lies about a Critical Incident and more specifically about the person, the human being killed by Law Enforcement, I think that is a bad thing. President David Canepa doesn’t.
Last month on April 7, 2021 Roger Allen was killed by somebody in Daly City that we know for sure. The Daly City Police Department put out an alert. Here is what it said:
·**POLICE ACTIVITY** on the 700 block of Niantic Avenue near Westlake Avenue. Please avoid the area. There is NO threat to the public. We will provide an update later. Thank you.
No mention that Roger Allen was shot and killed, and the entire incident from start to finish meaning his body was transported by ambulance from the Crime Scene in 16 minutes, according to DCPD and SMCDA. That’s Fast.
At the April 20, 2021 Board of Supervisor meeting during public comment at the 8 minute mark in the video of the meeting I asked the entire Board to make a public Statement supporting the Release of Names of the Daly City Police Officers involved and to Support Transparency. They all chose Not to do that.
It was the City Attorney Rosemarie Labog Zimmerman who finally released the names of the Four Police Officers Involved In the Homicide of Roger Allen who was killed on April 7, 2021. Her Press Release dated April 29, 2021 that’s 23 days after the Homicide by the Daly City Police Department. Who authorized the City Attorney to release the names? District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said that Police Chief Patrick Hensley could release the Officers names anytime, but is that true? He is an At Will Employee he might not be authorized to release those names. Who is his boss? Is it Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager? Lets see his employment contract.
An administrative investigation by an impartial outside investigator will also be conducted. Nobody is asking for an Administrative Investigation. Everybody knows an Administrative Investigation is useless.
City Attorney Rosemarie Labog Zimmerman, City Manager Shawnna Maltbie, Mayor Juslyn Manalo, are all responsible for withholding the names of the four Police Officers for 23 days. Why? What was gained by that? Did it create more or less Public Trust with the residents?
Here are the names: Officer Rosa Brenes, Lieutenant Michael Brennan, Officer Nicholas McCarthy and Officer Cameron Newton.
The naming of Police Officers involved in a Critical Incident is the absolute Minimum Standard San Mateo County Residents should accept from all Law Enforcement. That should happen within 24 hours.
Do Police Officers and top Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County lie to the Public? Of course they do. Do they always trash the memory and reputation of the person they just killed? Of course they do.
Chinedu V. Okobi Killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae less than 8 miles from where Roger Allen was Killed. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied about Chinedu within a few hours and left the lies on SMC Website for 5 months. SMCSO Sergeant Irfan Zaidi filed a completely False Police Report lying about ordering the removal of the handcuffs before the 8 minutes of chest compressions took place on the deceased.
Sandra Lee Harmon Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd received the unedited BWC Video within 24 hours of the Homicide. Boyd went along with the lies Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe promoted. What they all knew was Sandra was shot 8 times, 3 fatal shots in her back, She was shot at while she was unarmed and her hands were above her head. 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering). Sheriff Bolanos, D.A. Wagstaffe, The Investigators, County Counsel David Silberman, were all ok with the above facts by omitted from the Government story and the unverified statement that Deputy Dominguez turned off his BWC before the homicide occurred.
From the bottom Ms. Zimmerman’s Press release: As reported previously, the City requests that anyone with information relevant to this incident to please call the District Attorney’s Office, Chief Inspector William Massey at (650) 363‐4883.
I would just like to point out that William Massey is Not San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector.
San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector is John Warren and has been for many years.
John Warren is a 26 year Daly City Police Officer (retired)
So getting back to the Elected Officials and Staff of Daly City, What was their plan and why did they go along with Terrible Idea of not disclosing the names of the Involved officers. The public knows that Police Officers will kill people in the line of duty, that is part of the job. The public expects Elected Officials and Staff to do their job, Not help cover up anything.
What caused 4 Daly City Police Officers to be at a disabled truck (flat tire) in the first place? Who was the first Officer on the scene? Which Officer fired her/his weapon twice into an occupied vehicle? How is it possible this entire event lasted only 16 minutes before the deceased was transported from the scene. That has got to be a Worlds Record.
What we know today 27 days later.
Roger Allen R.I.P. was shot and killed in Daly City by somebody on April 7, 2021
The Attorney General of the State of California Rob Bonta should Investigate this homicide, That’s not going to happen. Daly City has lost all credibility the Staff is Responsible, Look to the City Managers.
