San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. “We Just Don’t Know”

By Michael G. Stogner

September 15, 2020 City of Half Moon Bay 6 PM Special Meeting by ZOOM.

District Attorney said “We Just don’t Know.”

That was his answer to Who fired first. You would expect he of all people would know EXACTLY who fired first. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade and many others have all said Sandra L. Harmon fired her Shotgun at Deputy Dominguez first.

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

The Same is true for CAPTIONS, below photo is a perfect example. “Harmon appeared to hold her arms up.” The fact is the photo shows she is Unarmed and her hands a clearly above her Head. It goes on {appeared to extend both middle fingers at involved Deputy Baba. There is ZERO mention of the Five Shots being fired at her at this very moment.

A good question for the City Managers and Council to ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, PIO Rosemerry Blankswade, and Captain Saul Lopez is What are the names of every person involved in the Wordcrafting of the Captions in this video.

The footage from deputy Dominguez’s body camera, which was turned off in what was reportedly a moment of oversight. What does that even mean?

The AXON INC. Log records will tell the Public if and when Deputy Dominguez actually turned off his Body Worn Camera. At this moment we only have Words and Captions by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, his PIO, Steve Wagstaffe etc. No Evidence

This is from the HMBR article September 16, 2020 by Vanessa Ochavillo. “There were three volleys of shots fired, Wagstaffe explained. And while he was fairly confident about the course of events on the second and third volleys, the first remains a mystery. The footage from deputy Dominguez’s body camera, which was turned off in what was reportedly a moment of oversight, could have helped answer the question of who fired first.”

“We just don’t know,” he said.

If you don’t know who fired first, and you don’t know if Sandra L. Harmon fired any shot or shots at all, this has gone from a Shootout to possibly an Execution. Not one Shotgun Pellet recovered for the Crime Scene.The Family and Residents of San Mateo County deserve to know the truth.

That is exactly why the Attorney General of the State of California must Investigate this Homicide.

Evidence vs. Words/Captions.

By Michael G. Stogner

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.

Axon Evidence.com Sandra L. Harmon Homicide Case.

By Michael G. Stogner

Notice Shotgun on ground and Hands Up.

The above photo is at the 8:07 Mark of Deputy Baba BWC Video. Notice how clear the resolution is.

San Mateo County Residents will remember the October 3, 2018 In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu V. Okobi a Moorehouse Graduate and Father of a daughter who was a pedestrian walking on the sidewalk in Millbrae, when he caught the attention of San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Wang. There was No 911 call, simply Deputy Wang wanted to engage him. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemary Blankswade Issued two False News Releases after he was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. They left those false statement on the County website for 5 months. Besides killing Chinedu its what the SIX S.O. Employees did or didn’t do for the next 9 minutes after they sat him up with his hands cuffed behind his back. They offered NO CPR and did not check his pulse.

Axon International Inc. is a company that most people think of as a Taser manufacture, but they are much more they also produce the MAV Dash Camera and Remote Microphone Audio, and Body Cameras now used by the Sheriff’s Office and District Office to store Evidence.

That sounds like a Conflict of Interest.

In the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide case it was reported by the Sheriff Office IT rep. that he was unable to download the MAV Videos from two of the Sheriff Patrol Vehicles that day. Also a Menlo Park Police Officer reported that all of the witnesses he interviewed using Axon Body Camera were unable to be downloaded. Seems strange doesn’t.

Now this morning after reviewing San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Evidence Files in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide in Custody of the Sheriff’s Office, I noticed No CAD report, No report of ALL the Axon products/devices downloaded that night. I also noticed that company providing the files is the same company to makes the Body Cameras, MAV, and Tasers.

Sandra L. Harmon was Fatally Shot in the back three times according to the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office who ruled the Manner of Death to be Homicide. Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired at least 5 shots at her while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. He never mentions that fact. Either does Sheriff Carlos Bolanos or D.A. Steve Wagstaffe.

I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade,

What is the Sheriff’s Office Policy of Firing at an Unarmed Citizen?

How many Shotgun Pellets were recovered from the Crime Scene that night?

What time did Sandra Harmon fire the Shotgun? What Evidence to prove that she fired the Shotgun at all?

The Sheriff and his PIO don’t think theses questions deserve to be answered. I think they are, especially when you tell the public that Your Deputy who fired 11 rounds and killed Sandra L. Harmon just happened to turn off his Axon Body Camera that is pretty convenvient.

Half Moon Bay City Council Meeting by ZOOM September 15, 2020 will have San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attending and discussing his 12 page letter to Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, where he found no crime had occurred by the Deputies May 5, 2020.

I had asked HMB City Manager Bob Nesbit twice to contact the State of California Attorney General and request an Independent Criminal Investigation by the A.G. or the D.O.J. He chose to meet with his Deputy City Manager and Steve Wagstaffe instead.

City Managers are responsible for the behavior of the Law Enforcement Agencies they contract with. I also asked Bob Nesbit if he had watched the Video provided to the public by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. He did not respond to that simple question. If a City Manager is not willing to watch what the Sheriff provides the public 40 days after a Homicide that he personally described as a Shootout when there has been ZERO Evidence of that Statement, at the 8:01-8:06 mark you will see Sandra Harmon standing Unarmed with hands above her head while been fired at by Deputy Dominguez.

What I noticed this morning is that Evidence.com the website the District Attorney arranged for me to view the Investigation Files is owned by Axon.

Small World.

Half Moon Bay Mayor Adam Eisen fails to act after being misled by Law Enforcement.

By Michael G. Stogner

Adam Eisen

Adam Eisen the Mayor of Half Moon Bay should have already suspended or demanded the suspension of Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, for firing 5 shots at close range at Sandra L. Harmon an unarmed civilian with her hands up above her head. May 5, 2020 She was shot 8 times 3 shots to the back were fatal. She died at the scene. Since May 5, 2020 Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade, San Mateo County District Attorney Office and San Mateo County Counsel have all misled the Mayor and the Public as to what really happened at 845 Main Street in HMB that night.

San Mateo County could use more elected officials like Mayor Lovely Warren.

Mayor Eison should have already followed the lead of ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren.

ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren suspended 7 police officers in the Daniel Reil Prude Homicide, who said she was misled for months about the circumstances of the fatal encounter.. and she was taking the action against the advice of attorneys.

September 15, 2020 the City of Half Moon Bay is having its meeting and San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe will be talking about his 12 page letter to Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos where he found no crime had occurred so no charges against the two Sheriff Deputies involved.

So basically City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy Manager Matthew Chidester decided to meet with Steve Wagstaffe to discuss my 2 emails to Bob Nesbit recommending he contact the Attorney General or the D.O.J. to have them conduct an investigation into the Homicide by SMC Sheriff Employees of Sandra L. Harmon.

The meeting will be on Zoom and the Public is invited to ask District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe questions.

Law Enforcement said there was a Shoot Out and Sandra L. Harmon fired first. She had a Shotgun, GSR test did not confirm she fired the Shotgun. Nobody saw her fire the shotgun. Shotgun was found with two spent shells nobody smelled the shotgun. I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade how many Shotgun Pellets were recovered from the scene they have refused to answer my question.

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Carlos Bolanos, Public Information Officer Mon, Aug 31 at 10:41 AM

Hello Sheriff Bolanos and PIO Blankswade,
Now that the Investigation is complete by the District Attorney’s Office 
Can you tell me the total number of Shotgun Pellets that were recovered on May 5, 2020 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay.

Thank You
Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com

Remember the ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren was misled for months about the circumstances of the fatal encounter.. and she was taking the action against the advice of attorneys.

Susan Bassi

By Michael G. Stogner
For a small percentage of America Susan Bassi’s report will sound familiar, Either because you personally have experienced a similar path or you know of someone who has. Most likely you have stopped communicating with them because the subject matter is to disturbing/overwhelming or you think they must have deserved it.
Susan Bassi is a true American Hero. She has been working to Help Others. Here is her FB post from this morning.
152,000 views and nearly 2K comments. We are getting better at reporting what mainstream media will not.
I posted this video on Sunday. You can see what happened in five days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPPX_rL3ujU&t=15s
For those of you who do not know, I have been part of a team trying to get mainstream media to report on our family courts for the past five years. I estimate I have spent over 4000 hours meeting with reporters, editors and publishers from the following news organizations:
San Jose Inside
NBC Bay Area
ABC10
CBS
KTVU Fox 2
Washingtonpost
NewYork/Times
100Reporters
TMZ
Los Angeles Times
SeattleTimes.com
The Mercury News
San Francisco Chronicle
The Sacramento Bee
Boston Globe Subscribers
@CenterforInvestigativeReporting
KQED
and any reporter, editor or publisher who would ever give me 5 mins. I tried to explain how your children were being stolen. how your homes were being seized and your lives destroyed and yet it seems nobody was interested in paying for the ink.

Then I was arrested and have been prosecuted for 3 years and I met some folks watching cops on

YouTube ☑️

and they listened and tried to make me better at pitching your stories. They also probably paid a price for trying to help after snitches and informants including Scott Largent tried to take them down, but they were resilient and persistent and the most noble photojournalists I have ever met.

San Joaquin Valley

It took me 200 hearings in family court. 29 hearings in criminal court and who would have ever known a divorce and prosecution for a local rule made by a bunch of dirty lawyers would have taught me more than that

UCDavis degree or that UC Berkeley law degree I gave up on to follow my husband into farming businesses.
But as they like to say on my channel, I guess I got woke and educated all at once. And this time I was smart enough to get it on video. So for those of you who dealt with these lawyers, bailiffs, custody evaluators, CPAs, bailiffs , and private judges, I heard you. I am no longer waiting for someone else. We are going to get these stories.
So for any cop, judge, lawyer or dirty DA who thinks you got away, think again. I have a camera and I am not afraid to use it.
Thank you all who shared, subbed and commented. We now have more views on this video than San Jose Inside. San Jose Mercury and NBC news have combined!

Kevin Mullin didn’t say a word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by 6 SMC Employees.

By Michael G. Stogner

Kevin Mullin did not attend or make a public comment at any of the many meetings the Board of Supervisors made available to the public to discuss, Excessive Use of Tasers, Excessive Use of Force, Failure to provide Medical Aid after killing Chinedu Okobi. He did not attend any of the many Concerned Citizens gatherings at the killing site in Millbrae/San Bruno.

Chinedu V. Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by Law Enforcement. Both of the Deaths were ruled a Homicide by the local Coroner. The Four Officers responsible for George Floyd’s Homicide were fired and Criminally Charged. The Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees who are responsible for Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide are all working and None of them have been criminally charged with anything.

Here is Kevin’s PR piece on voting. You will notice he can’t even mention George Floyd’s Name. “most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement.” That could be Hundreds of young Black/Brown Men around America.

I can say this as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years Kevin Mullin is the norm for Elected Officials in SMC.

I know of only one San Mateo County Elected Official that Publicly Questioned, was Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered. That should have been the Obvious question every single elected official should want the answer to.

Sabrina Brennan was that Elected Official. She attended meetings and gatherings.

 

America is confronting an unprecedented “trifecta” that is dominating our daily headlines: A COVID-19 pandemic, a deep recession and most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, illustrative of systemic racism and injustice that has spawned a season of multiracial protests and calls for needed social change. Yet, while the nation is reeling from these crises, duplicitous messaging is being deployed by the occupant of the Oval Office to actively undermine the results of this November’s election: that voting by mail can’t be trusted, that widespread voter fraud exists, and that mail balloting is designed specifically to elect his opponent: FALSE.

Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed ballots, in all 50 states, according to the Vote at Home Institute with only a handful of fraudulent votes cast. Election law expert and U.C. Irvine professor Richard L. Hasen notes, it is still more likely for an American to be struck by lightning than to commit mail-voting fraud. In addition, there is no evidence to suggest that voting by mail benefits any particular political party.

San Mateo County has shown that voting-by-mail works. My legislation to make San Mateo County an all-mail ballot pilot county demonstrated that the participating electorate more closely resembles the public at large in terms of its diversity and representation, with young people, and voters of color in particular more likely to cast ballots. Thanks to my colleague, Assemblyman Marc Berman’s legislation recently signed into law, this November’s election in California will be an all-mailed-ballot election. Every voter automatically will receive a ballot, postage paid, with community-level “vote centers” as back-up. Voting by mail is the most efficient and effective way to conduct an inclusive and participatory election.

So-called “red and blue” states alike have employed voting-by-mail, but the way states have approached elections administration varies greatly. Elections are fundamentally state and locally administered, and recent examples of mismanagement during primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia remind us of the challenges facing election administrators across the country. This is a highly charged political atmosphere with huge stakes on the line.

There is a growing recognition that the pandemic must force changes in how elections work, and better ensure more participation moving forward. Attempts to help fund elections with federal dollars have fallen woefully short of what is needed to ensure free and fair elections across America. Since the Bush-Gore contested election in 2000, the efficacy of voting mechanisms and machinery have taken center stage. More recently, we are seeing a coordinated misinformation campaign to attack the integrity of, and undermine the public’s faith in, our elections. False narratives abound, and voter suppression, which disproportionally disenfranchises communities of color, is real and we all suffer the consequences as a result.

While voting-by-mail works, it is not perfect. Signature-matching issues have led to ballots not being counted, a concern that is actively being addressed in California. One other legitimate drawback to voting at home is the time it takes local elections’ officials to count waves of mail ballots and certify the election. The current administration is preemptively trying to undermine faith in the eventual vote count and may try to exploit delays in vote tabulation to question the legitimacy of results, triggering a constitutional crisis. While the long wait for vote-by-mail results is not ideal, it’s in the interest of every vote being counted, which is fundamental to our democracy.

During this tense time when we need leaders who can calm, heal, and build faith, the president has used this period to further divide people and incite violence, all while callously attacking the basic underpinnings of our democracy, like faith in and respect for the work of journalists — essentially a broadside on the First Amendment. The work of journalists and the social media platforms themselves have never been more important in fact checking false claims and advertisements with false information.

Vote as if democracy itself, and its pillars like a free press, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, including the right of every citizen to vote, is on the ballot. Because it is.

 

Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, is speaker pro tempore of the California Assembly and represents San Mateo County’s 22nd Assembly District.

I asked San Mateo County Citizen Advocate Brent Turner for comment on Kevin Mullin Opinion Piece.

Brent Turner

The VOTE BY MAIL  act  is  innocuous to the degree that it reiterates voting by mail procedures. We have used absentee ballots for many years. What is NOT innocuous is the removal of polling places from communities of color. Though Mindy Romero and other experts have declined to state it clearly,  the added travel distance to some of these community residents results in a veritable “poll tax ” and leads to further disenfranchisement, . Subjective signature disqualification also creates opportunity for disenfranchisement and was predicted by election experts

The bill originally emanated from the ” Colorado Model ”  of elections and was  promulgated by Colorado based vendor DOMINION  The act is notorious not for what it mandates but what it ignores. The fact there is ZERO mention of the software used to tabulate the votes creates a severe point of misdirection to the layperson voter.  This is unfortunate as the authors of the bill positioned it as a security measure when this  is not the case. The authors were briefed extensively but chose to omit the work of the open source software security experts.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos on Oversight System.

By Michael G. Stogner

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos told the City of San Carlos Leaders “He could not recall an issue justifying spending money on an oversight system.”

Nobody is asking for a System. Carlos G. Bolanos has a history of misleading the public.

Here is just a short list of ISSUES that come to mind.

Sandra Harmon May 05, 2020 Killed by Sheriff Deputies, Deputy Dominguez firing 5 shots at Unarmed with Hands Up above her head. He Bolanos claims she fired her 2 shot shotgun at Dominguez while he was taking cover behind his patrol car which was parked sideways. Not a mark or scratch on the patrol car of the Deputy. He claims Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera and that is why there is NO EVIDENCE provided to prove Sandra Harmon fired ANY shots.

At the 8:02-8:08 mark you will see Sandra Harmon Unarmed with hands above her head and you will hear 5 shots being fired at her.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s video

February 10, 2020 SAL Executive Director Barbara Bonilla was escorted out of her office and is being investigated for embezzlement. She was Sheriff Bolanos’s Campaign Manager in the 2018 election. She has resigned from the Sheriff’s office since Why? She she hasn’t been charged with any crime. She has been removed from State and National PAL Boards.

September 14, 2019 Redwood City Police arrested SMCSO Sergeant Luis Aquino for DUI and refusing to take both blood and breath test. Sheriff Bolanos and David Silberman refused to provide his Booking photo. San Carlos: An additional $50,000 was also approved for DUI services. 

October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide in Custody just like George Floyd, No 911 Call, just a Moorehouse Graduate and father walking on the sidewalk in the middle of the day, No crime committed before Deputy Wang got attracted to him a large Black Man he was dead minutes later.

December 31, 2018 San Mateo County Deputy Heather Diaz Coroner “I have determined the manner of Death to be Homicide.”

HOMICIDE PROTOCOL* 36 year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies. March 1, 2019 District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirmed it was a Homicide at the very end of his Press Conference where he announced no criminal charges would be filed. KQED, CBS5, and San Mateo County News.com all reported Homicide.

One ISSUE was the many False Statements provided to the Public by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos per his News Releases dated October 3, 2018 and March 1, 2019.

June 3, 2014 Yanira Serrano killed by Deputy within 20 seconds of getting out of his patrol car. It was a non emergency 911 call for medical assistance.

2014 Lets not forget what Carlos G. Bolanos and many others have done to destroy former Sherif Deputy Juan P. Lopez since he filed to run for Sheriff of San Mateo County. Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a gang member in Jail. Sure he did, 100% False Charges.

2009/10 San Mateo County Sheriff Male staff 46 of them sharing Porn and Rape video on County Computers.

April 21, 2007 Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada

Regarding Citizen Oversight and or an Audit of his work

Sheriff Bolanos said he was open to but felt removed accountability from leaders of organizations. I have no idea what that means

“I believe they’re dysfunctional primarily because you have people who are not experts in certain fields making determination on what is appropriate or not,”

“With me as an elected official the voters have the greatest civilian oversight and can replace me with someone else.”

How would the voters ever know what he is doing or how he is doing it without an Audit.

You can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

Menlo Park Police Chief Quits during council meeting.

By Michael G. Stogner

MPPD Chief Dave Bertini

Update: from Almanac Twitter During a town hall meeting Thursday evening to discuss policing in #MenloPark, Housing Commissioner Karen Grove said she’d heard Menlo Park police Chief Dave Bertini use a racial slur in an ethics training.

Menlo Park Police Chief Dave Bertini is taking his Ball and going home.

The Council and Chief of Police were having a discussion on Police Reform.

Councilman Ray Mueller asked him a vague softball question “How the police department can build a better relationship with residents.”

“It is obvious to me that I have lost the trust of council,” Bertini said.

His last day will be July 30, 2020

This is a conversation all City and County Officials in America are starting to have, Let the negotiations begin.

Once you know you have a disgruntled employee its best to take their keys ASAP and Thank them for all they have done for your community, Replace that position in the interim.
