Mark Melville on Releasing the Axon Log Records.

By Michael G. Stogner

Retired SMC Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville

I recommended the City Council of Half Moon Bay file a lawsuit against Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman because they were the only two people refusing to release the Axon Log Records of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Law Enforcement Incident. I informed the council that Candidate for Sheriff 2022 Mark Melville said he would. They chose not to do that for some reason.

Somebody has asked me, to ask you and I think you have already answered but this is a little different.

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


Thank You

The Axon Log Records would confirm or prove false the Story that the Government has told the public.

SMCC Attorney David Silberman

Why wouldn’t San Mateo County County Counsel Attorney David Silberman want that released?

The Official Story is very different from the Evidence. Several High Ranking Government Officials and Staff are involved in the False Story about the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide on May 5, 2020.

From the Civil Lawsuit: SMCDA Wagstaffe “The Axon Body Worn Camera Logs had NEVER been checked to see if Deputy Dominguez had actually turned the camera on because Deputy Dominguez had been taken at his word on this issue.”

A reasonable person would expect the Sheriff, District Attorney, and County Counsel Attorney to CHECK the Axon Log Records to confirm Deputy Dominguez was telling the truth.

I know for a fact that San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Rick Decker, asked a woman I was assisting, to take a Polygraph Test after she filed Felony Charges against her ex husband who was a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy. She agreed and passed with flying colors.

Nobody asked San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez to take a polygraph test when a woman with mental illness was shot in the back three times all fatal with hollow point bullets.

I found it interesting that the City of Half Moon Bay is being represented in the Civil Lawsuit by San Mateo County Counsel. The same Government Attorneys that are refusing to release the AXON LOG RECORDS. Sounds like a conflict of interest.

If you are a San Mateo County Resident and you believe the AXON LOG RECORDS should be made available to the Public, I recommend that you Vote Mark Melville for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.

I hope Attorney General Rob Bonta is paying attention to “Those Who Matter” in San Mateo County.

Half Moon Bay Agendize the Jimenez-Rarback Report.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: 8:08 PM June 1, 2021

The Jimenez-Rarback Report was put on the June 15, 2021 Meetings Agenda 4 yes 1 no vote,

This is a San Mateo County Issue not just a Half Moon Bay Issue. It’s rare when an Elected Official actually does the work on behalf of the residents, Here you have two Elected Officials doing what’s right for all of San Mateo County.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and even some Half Moon Bay Council members have said that San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera when he exited his patrol car and went to the R.V. he expected Sandra Lee Harmon to be in. By the way he went to the R.V. by himself for some reason, He knew Sandra had a Shotgun and a bottle of wine and had mentioned a Race War. He went alone with BWC turned off is the Government’s Official Story. From the first time that story was presented to the public to this day that is exactly what it is a Story Words Spoken by the Top Government Officials. There has not been one piece of Evidence to support that Story.

Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is. Even if it is the Sheriff.

The Axon Log Records which are paid for by the Taxpayers will prove the statement from the Government Officials is True if it is and False if it is a Lie.

The Staff for the City of Half Moon Bay have demonstrated there complete lack of interest in getting to the truth of what happened the night Sandra L. Harmon was shot in the Back three times all Fatal.

2022 Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville has stated that he will release the AXON LOG RECORDS the first day he is sworn in. Now that makes a reasonable person wonder why Bolanos & Silberman are refusing to provide them and also why the City did not sue them to make them public.

Half Moon Bay Police Reform Zoom Meeting May 18, 2021 Item 3D

By Michael G. Stogner

Making Half Moon Bay safe for it’s residents.

Great work Half Moon Bay City Council and Resident David Eblovi, Thank You for leading the entire County in Law Enforcement reform. If it turns out that the only resistance is from Sheriff Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman don’t worry both of those obstacles can be gone with the election of Mark Melville for Sheriff in 2022. That’s 18 months from now.

“It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract,” Bolanos said. “It’s basically unenforceable.”

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos finds those restrictions “problematic” and unenforceable.

Even if the ordinance is approved by the council, it likely wouldn’t have any bearing on the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. Because of the county’s contract with Half Moon Bay, the city can’t legislate changes until the contract is up for renegotiation, Bolanos said. The Sheriff’s Office’s contract with the city doesn’t expire until July 2022

How difficult could it possibly be, HMB has only 2 Deputies on duty per shift.

The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.

The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.

“It’s in our best interest to listen to our community, to see what is going on and if there has to be any kind of changes to make our community safer,” Jimenez said.

While this ordinance would restrict the actions of law enforcement, Rarback believes it would instead give deputies


ORDINANCE NO. C-2021-_______
AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HALF MOON BAY

CALIFORNIA AMENDING CHAPTER 2.33, SPECIFIC POLICING POLICIES

THE CITY COUNCIL OF HALF MOON BAY DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. Findings: The City Council finds and declares as follows:

(a) The municipal code of the City of Half Moon Bay requires periodic updates to reflect current information and changes in law, to provide clarification to the community, and to provide for improved customer service and administration of City business.

(b) Setting a clear understanding for the behavior of law enforcement and peace officers serving the Half Moon Bay community is critical to building and maintaining trust between the community and the City’s law enforcement providers.

(c) Protecting law enforcement officers and the community from undue risk of harm as a result of unnecessary interactions or escalations between armed officers and the public is critical to protecting the public safety of all of Half Moon Bay’s residents, and especially those who may be at statistically high risk of a negative outcome due to mental illness, substance abuse issues, race, housing status, or immigration status.

(d) There is no statutory requirement that the City of Half Moon Bay enforce California Vehicle Code. Therefore the City may, and should, selectively enforce CA Vehicle Code if it results in less pervasive fear or a better standard of living for its people.

(e) It is in the interests of the City of Half Moon Bay for peace officers to have operable and operating video and sound recording devices at all times that they are in public or are engaging in policing activities.

(f) A significant portion of the at-risk population of Half Moon Bay lives in reasonable fear of encounters with law enforcement providers. These fears are justified by the fact that the current law enforcement agency serving greater Half Moon Bay has had numerous recent fatal encounters with individuals who suffered from mental health issues. Therefore, it is in the interests of the public and the officers who serve here to minimize the number and types of such interactions, and when interactions do occur for the City to insure that the interests of all parties are protected to the extent possible.

Section 2. Municipal Code Update (Specific Policing Policies) including revisions to Chapter 2.33 of the Half Moon Bay Municipal Code is adopted as set forth in Exhibit “A” to this Ordinance shown for introduction as deletions in strike through and additions in underline.

Section 3Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council herby declares that it would have passed this Ordinance and adopted this Ordinance and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more section, subsections, sentences, clauses or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.

Section 4Publication. The City Clerk of the City of Half Moon Bay is hereby directed to publish this Ordinance, or the title hereof as a summary, pursuant to Government Code Section 36933, once within fifteen (15) days after its passage in the Half Moon Bay Review, a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Half Moon Bay.

Section 5Effective date. This Ordinance shall take effect and be in force on the thirtieth (30th) day from and after its final passage.

SMC Voters can Kill two Birds with one stone in 2022. Bolanos and Silberman

By Michael G. Stogner

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

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.
