San Mateo County Government’s Big Lie.

By Michael G. Stogner

The County Government’s Big Lie started in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 21, 2007 at 9:30 PM when then Sheriff Greg Munks and Under-Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos were both Caught and Detained INSIDE a private residence with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Minor, $25,000 cash and 3,500 ecstasy tablets. That LIE is still going strong 14 years later, if they would lie about this what else would they lie about? Errol Chang Homicide by Law Enforcement, Yanira Serrano Garcia Homicide by Sheriff Employee, Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by 6 Sheriff Employees, Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by 2 Sheriff Employees, the Kaylan Charles Freeman Criminal Case, and don’t forget the Former San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal case going for 7 years now. There are many more.

The real question is who were all of the Elected Officials and Appointed Department heads like County Manager, County Counsel and Staff in Government and the Media who were communicated with between April 21, 2007 9:30 PM and April 25, 2007 10:47 AM to create the False Official Story?

The Truth was out from the very beginning in this article published in the Palo Alto Online April 24, 2007 @ 2:48 PM. That’s 61 hours after Both Caught INSIDE. Isn’t that interesting an online news publication from a different county published the truth. How many of the 720,000 San Mateo County Residents read that article?

Bill Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences. That is very different than what Sheriff Greg Munks told the public at his press conference.

What would have happened if Sheriff Greg Munks and Under-Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos simply told the Truth? Why the Lie?

Sheriff detained in Las Vegas brothel raid

Uploaded: Tue, Apr 24, 2007, 2:48 pm
Time to read: about 2 minutes

San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks Tuesday afternoon apologized for his “lack of judgment” following his and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos’ brief detainment at a Las Vegas brothel Saturday night during a prostitution sting by local and federal authorities.

Munks, who was sworn in as sheriff of San Mateo County on Jan. 8, read a brief statement but declined to take questions.

“I believed I was going to a legitimate business,” Munks said. “It was not,” he said.

Munks said he and Bolanos had been in Las Vegas over the weekend to participate in a law enforcement run, the Baker to Vegas Relay.

During a series of raids Saturday night and early Sunday dubbed “Operation Dollhouse,” Munks and Bolanos were detained but were not among the six people — five men and one woman — arrested by police at a brothel about two miles west of Las Vegas strip, Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell said this afternoon.

The arrests at the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found took place at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Cassell said. Approximately 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 in cash was seized at the brothel, Cassell added.

Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences at the brothel. “All of the customers were simply identified and released,” Cassell said.

“I want to apologize to my family, the sheriff’s office and its fine men and women, and to the people of San Mateo County for my lack of judgment and the undue attention and embarrassment this incident has caused,” Munks stated.

Munks said that he and Bolanos fully cooperated with the investigation, though he noted that Bolanos “was outside when the authorities arrived.”

“I would not, nor did I, break any laws,” Munks said. “Neither did the Undersheriff.”

Cassell stressed that Munks and Bolanos “received no special treatment because of their status in law enforcement.”

No charges have been filed against Munks or Bolanos.

Cassell declined to specify the exact location of the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found, but said it is located two miles west of the strip in a mixed residential and light-industrial area in the south-central part of the city, according to Cassell.

The raid was part of a series of raids at nine Las Vegas brothels Saturday night and early Sunday morning, according to Cassell.

The operation capped a two-year investigation conducted by Las Vegas police, the FBI, the IRS criminal investigation division and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau, Cassell said.

Over the weekend, a total of seven people were arrested on prostitution and drug-related charges and 25 prostitutes were taken into custody, Cassell said. An ongoing investigation will attempt to determine whether any of those arrested were involved in illegal human trafficking, he added.

According to Cassell, additional suspects are still being sought by authorities on federal prostitution charges.

Here is the example of just 4 of San Mateo County Government Officials communicating with each other within 61 hours of The Sheriff and Under-Sheriff being Caught and Detained INSIDE.

That is San Mateo County’s TOP 4 in Law Enforcement. All four have sworn an Oath to protect the Public.

How many times since April 21, 2007 has now elected Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied about being outside the residence as if that mattered to the Public, How many times?

Warren Metlitzky Misleads Judge Illston in Okobi case.

By Michael G. Stogner

I have never seen a better example of this statement, “Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.”

Yesterday August 27, 2021 10 AM Attorney Warren Metlitzky appeared before Judge Susan Illston.

08/27/2021 – 10:00AM3:19-cv-02992-SI – C.M.O. v. County of San Mateo et al CLERKS NOTICE SETTING ZOOM HEARING. Motion for Summary Judgment [85] Hearing set for 8/27/2021 10:00 AM – Videoconference Only before Judge Susan Illston. This proceeding will be held via a Zoom webinar. Court Appearances: Advanced notice is required of counsel or parties who wish to be identified by the court as making an appearance or will be participating in the argument at the hearing. A list of names and emails must be sent to the CRD at sicrd@cand.uscourts.gov no later than 8/22/21 at 2 p.m. Pacific. Webinar Access: All counsel, members of the public, and media may access the webinar information at https://www.cand.uscourts.gov/si General Order 58. Persons granted access to court proceedings held by telephone or videoconference are reminded that photographing, recording, and rebroadcasting of court proceedings, including screenshots or other visual copying of a hearing, is absolutely prohibited. Zoom Guidance and Setup: https://www.cand.uscourts.gov/zoom/. Motion Hearing set for 8/27/2021 10:00 AM in San Francisco, – Videoconference Only before Judge Susan Illston. (This is a text-only entry generated by the court. There is no document associated with this entry.) (ecS, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 8/23/2021)

He made so many False and Misleading Statements to Judge Susan Illston I’m not quite sure where to begin. I’ll start with the VIDEO he mentions so many times. This video was created by unknown people at San Mateo County Government, it was finally launched to the public the same morning San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held closed to the public Press Conference for Credentialed Media only, I attended. That date was March 1, 2019 148 days after Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees in Millbrae, California October 3, 2018.

I’m not sure how many times Warren Metlitzky has watched the video or if Judge Illston has viewed it I recommend that she does, I personally have viewed it over 40 times.

The video starts with Deputy Wang’s Dashcam on, his vehicle is heading north on El Camino Real he is waiting to make a U-Turn. Warren Metlitzky knows that the Dashcam Video is activated by the Bar Lights on top of the vehicle being turned on, which means Deputy Wang was interested in Chinedu Okobi before he stepped off of the sidewalk and was no safety threat to traffic as the Government claims. He chooses not to mention that to Judge Illston.

Warren Metlitzky tells Judge Illston there is NO Evidence that Chinedu Okobi was dog piled by the Five Sheriff Deputies. Of Course Chinedu was dog piled not by 5 but by SIX. CSO Joseph Gonzales can be clearly seen on top of Chinedu Okobi at the 7:05 mark of the video. If anybody has seen a Little League Baseball game or a Soccer Game at the end is often a Dog Pile.

Warren Metlitzky tells Judge Illston there is no Evidence Chinedu Okobi was pepper sprayed in the face by a Deputy. CSO Joseph Gonzales is Not a Deputy watch his right hand at the 7:18 mark and a second later Deputy Lorenzatti yell “Oh Fuck” as she was sprayed in the face with O.C. Spray.

Warren Metlitzky tells Judge Illston there is no Evidence Chinedu Okobi ever said “He couldn’t breathe.” I recommend you listen at the 8:48 mark to Chinedu Okobi’s last sound/word “BREATHE”

9:59 Mark Unknown “Is he still breathing.” That is a Great Question and it would have been nice if one of the SIX County Employees actually checked.

The Governments Official Story has always been the same a Very Large Black Man failed to comply and was Alive and Well “He was breathing and had a pulse at all times while in the Sheriff’ Office Custody and even several minutes after the AMR people took over from the Sheriff’s Office Employees.” This Video shows a completely different story and remember the Government had 148 day to create it.

This video is supposed to be on the District Attorney’s Website the current link doesn’t work here it is below.

The MISSING 3 seconds from 7:02-7:05 Where are they?

SMC Sheriff Sergeant Irfan Zaidi, Why wasn’t he Fired, Arrested and Charged with filing a False Police Report?

By Michael G. Stogner

October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi was killed in Millbrae by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant was not one of those Six Employees involved in the Homicide.

19 days later on October 22, 2018 he filed a Police Report Falsely claiming he ordered Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti to remove the handcuffs from Chinedu Okobi and he further claims Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti did that. Why would he be willing to jeopardize his career at SMCSO and make this False Statement?

The Truth and Fact is Chinedu V. Okobi was given Chest Compressions for 10 minutes while he was handcuffed.

Did SMCSO Sergeant Zaidi create this False Story on his own?

San Mateo County How many Good Humans would it take?

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

How many of these CLOSED SESSION MEETINGS could a Good Human tolerate. I say ZERO.

A Good Human would say “I have taken an Oath.” I can’t sit through another one of these B.S. Meetings.

How many of these meetings has Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine, John Beiers, David Silberman attended?

7/14/2021Departments:CLOSED SESSION 
On agenda:7/20/2021Final action:
Title:Conference with Legal Counsel – Existing Litigation: C.M.O., a minor, by and through her Guardian ad Litem Mi’Trease Johnson v. County of San Mateo, et al. United States District Court -Northern-Case No. 3:19-cv-02992-JCS Consolidated with: Maureen Okobi v. County of San Mateo, et al United States District Court -Northern-Case No. 3:19-cv-03002 Conference with Legal Counsel 

The reason I’m asking is this, every one of the above mentioned people knew or should have known shortly after October 3, 2018 at 1:30PM that Unarmed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. After he was tased 7 times, struck with extended Baton, Dog Piled by all six employees, sprayed in face at close range with O.C. spray, Handcuffed, spoke his last word and was sat up on El Camino Real, Millbrae/San Bruno and was not offered ANY medical Life Saving measures for the next 9 minutes by any of the SIX SMC Employees. Does that sound familiar. It didn’t take long for the Government conspiracy to be formed. “He was breathing and had a pulse while in the Sheriff’s Custody” The simple truth is that is a LIE. All of the above named people Know that or should know that.

It has been 2 years and 9 months since the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six SMCSO Employees. What was Maureen Okobi mother of Chinedu and Mi’Trease Johnson mother of Chinedu’s daughter asking for San Mateo County in order to settle this on the very first CLOSED SESSION MEETING?

San Mateo County just agreed to pay $11.4M for a Whistleblower case where nobody was KILLED.

San Mateo County get good humans in the elected positions. Settle these cases, and stop killing innocent civilians.

The real San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi R.I.P.

Yesterday July 20, 2020, 21 months after Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Killed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi on El Camino Real in Millbrae/San Bruno The Supervisors discussed in Closed Session the progress of the two Civil Lawsuits that the relatives have brought against San Mateo County and a long list of Employees who were involved in the Misinformation aka Lying to the Residents of SMC about what actually occurred on October 3, 2018.

This happens every time Law Enforcement in San Mateo County kills a man or woman. The San Mateo County Media, San Mateo County Counsel, and San Mateo County Supervisors join in the character assassination of the DECEASED.

In Chinedu’s case everyone knows by now that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has No Plan in place on how to make a Pedestrian Stop. Thats right Chinedu Okobi was simply walking down the sidewalk while Black when Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang spotted him while he was traveling northbound in his patrol car. He activated his lights which activated his dashboard video camera which shows him making a U-turn.

Within 8 minutes Chinedu was Tased 7 times, struck with extended baton, Dogpiled by SIX SMC Employees and sprayed with O.C. spray in the face at close range while being handcuffed where he died. From that moment on San Mateo County started to promote the false story of “He was breathing and had a pulse when the Sheriff’s Office Employees turn him over to the AMR people.”

Nothing could be further from the Truth.

There is NO EVIDENCE that any of the Six Employees checked Chinedu Okobi’s pulse or provided ANY Life Saving measures after he was handcuffed and approximately 9:30 minutes passed before ARM people touched him.

How much Taxpayer Money has SMC Supervisors approved for this legal action? How much have they spent to date?

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.

Justice for Chinedu is looking for a Candidate for District Attorney 2022

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

As some of you know on October 3, 2018, Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by Six Sheriff Employees, One Sergeant, 4 Deputies and a Civilian CSO. December 31, 2018 Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled the Manner of Death was a Homicide. There was No 911 call because Chinedu hadn’t committed ANY crime. He was simply walking on a sidewalk in Millbrae, California in the middle of the afternoon while Black. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied to the public and he did NOT Immediately assault the Deputy as soon as he exited his vehicle as Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied to the public.

March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe notified the public that he would Not be filing any Criminal Charges against the Sergeant and four Deputies. He never investigated the sixth Sheriff Employee who was involved in the Homicide. He also never investigated the Six Sheriff Employees for not ever checking his pulse or providing any Medical Aide for the next 9 minutes after he had stopped breathing and AMR staff finally reached his dead body.

No Confidence in SMCDA Chief Inspector John Warren

By. Michael G, Stogner

San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector John Warren

He is in-charge of the Investigation of Sandra Harmon death by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba and Deputy David Dominguez on May 5, 2020 just off of Main Street Half Moon Bay.

He was also the in-charge of the Yanira Serrano-Garcia death by Deputy Investigation June 3, 2014 also Half Moon Bay.

He was also SMCDA Inspector Jamie Draper’s Supervisor and he approved this Conclusion Summary of the Coroner’s Report in the Chinedu Okobi Death by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018.

He doesn’t mention the word Homicide. Jamie Draper says it should be noted that this information is contrary. NO IT ISN’T Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz is 100% correct.
“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 Deputies

Both Inspectors of San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office thought that Omitting the word Homicide and a deliberately misleading statement was fine.

That is why I have No Confidence in either one of them. I also think it is a criminal act to provide a false report in what should have been a Homicide Investigation.

San Mateo County should release the MAV videos and audio recordings of the death of Sandra Harmon, they should have done it the first day.

San Mateo’s Peaceful Protest, BLM, George Floyd R.I.P. Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

Did anybody mention Chinedu V. Okobi’s name that night? He was killed on El Camino Real, in Millbrae in the middle of the afternoon, by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018. San Mateo County Coroner ruled the manner of Death a Homicide on December 31, 2018. Chinedu Okobi had committed No Crime, when Sheriff Deputy Wang became interested in him. Yes Chinedu was a Black man walking on the sidewalk.

Chinedu Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by law enforcement and both deaths ruled a Homicide. The difference is a brave 17 year old girl who videoed the Murder and put it on the internet for the world to see before it could be destroyed or edited.

Police response was at times unnecessarily intimidating,

I knew I wanted to publish this letter as soon as I read it, in my opinion it is addressed to the wrong people, The five Supervisors couldn’t care less what the residents think or feel. It should be addressed to ALL San Mateo County Residents.

Here it is:

Good morning San Mateo City Council Members, San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, Chief Barberini, and Sheriff Bolanos –

On Wednesday evening, June 3, I attended and spoke at the Black Lives Matter Protest in San Mateo. From the moment I walked up to City Hall, witnessed the speeches, and marched from City Hall to the San Mateo Police Department, I was inspired and proud. That is, until SMPD and related police forces showed up unprovoked in masses in riot gear to greet the peaceful protesters. 

Shortly after 7pm, when the protest was scheduled to end, a group of Sheriff vehicles – marked and unmarked – sped down Franklin Parkway towards the hundreds of individuals, families, and children still standing peacefully in the street. As had been specifically planned in coordination with SMPD, the protest was scheduled to end at the San Mateo Police Department with a time of silence and reflection. Instead, when the riot forces began rushing to the scene, people were forced to quickly make way while at the same time fearing what these forces had come to do. I personally witnessed an older gentleman literally jump out of the way of a sheriff car backing up into the driveway. Children were running into the arms of their parents in tears. This as multiple law enforcement officers jumped out of their cars, either dressed in or grabbing full riot gear to don, displaying batons, bright-colored zip tie restraints, rubber bullet guns, and other riot paraphernalia. This was nothing more than an unprovoked, blatant show of force which negated the otherwise positive nature of the demonstration. 

Three of the people standing on Franklin Parkway were me, my husband Rob, and my daughter Kaiya. Prior to this incident, Kaiya had been jumping up and down on the curb, collecting new rocks, and galloping through the street like a horse without a care in the world. This changed in one moment, when she then dove into my arms in hysterics. There have been very few times where I have been so afraid for my life, and never a time when I have been so afraid for the life of my daughter. There is no way to describe what that moment felt like for me, and my 22 month old daughter doesn’t have the words to describe what it was like for her. I’ll never know how much this first real interaction with law enforcement impacted her. 

San Mateo Police Department released a statement indicating there were “additional challenges” and therefore a “supplemental group was deployed.” SMPD further stated, “Fortunately, at no point did these officers, or any other personnel have to employ any use of force and no arrests were made.” That bare statement reflects a generally negative set of expectations for what everyone agreed would be a civil, peaceful demonstration. No mention of the blatant and unnecessary display of force. No recognition of the impact on the peaceful protesters who lined the streets. Could it have been worse? Absolutely. But should we strive to do better? I thought that was the commitment SMPD made in their letter to the community denouncing George Floyd’s death and that was reiterated during the Town Hall earlier this week. Actions speak much louder than words. 

This is not a situation in which you need to wait for other people to determine what happened and why in order to determine right and wrong, and understand the right thing to do. In this letter and in my prior discussions with many of you, I am describing the actions of our local law enforcement, which are not in dispute, and explaining how they were received by attendees including my own family. This is an example of our system functioning as intended, and of your collective complicity. 

No one on our City Council looks like me. To be honest, not many people in our city look like me. I have shared my perspective, as a black woman in our city, as the ONLY current Black Elected Official in our city, and I have been told – subtly or overtly – what every other black person in our country is told – we don’t believe you, and we need to wait for the white men in power to tell us what really happened. 

I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so disappointed. Please know that if you truly stand with Black Lives Matter, actions like these and the insistent failure to acknowledge them directly and seemingly intentionally miss the point. If you believe my life matters, that means you believe me and my experience. You think it is valuable and that my story is ALL you need to denounce these scare tactics, and blatant displays of force.

Councilwoman Lee recently had a rock thrown through her window. She recounted that terrible event from her perspective, she told her story, and action ensued. No one said, we are going to wait until we have all the evidence before we are going to speak out. Why is this experience so different?

I’m asking for two things: 

To the San Mateo City Council and San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, I am asking you to take a stand. To publicly address and denounce these scare tactics and blatant displays of force utilized by law enforcement at the end of the evening. 

To Chief Barberini and Sheriff Bolanos, I am asking for ownership. A lot went well, and you have repeatedly shared that. Own what didn’t go well and make reparations.

Remember this was a Successful Peaceful Protest in the middle of a Pandemic. Congratulations to all involved.

Chinedu Okobi is SMC’s George Floyd.

By Michael G. Stogner

I want to thank the 17 year old girl who videoed the Murder of George Floyd by 4 Police Officers. Had she not been there and done that the rest of the world would have never known about the Homicide by Law Enforcement. It would have been reported on a back page Black man died at the Hospital from physical exertion resisting arrest and failure to comply with a lawful order.

The Police Chief fired the 4 police officers within 24 hours that was the right thing. He did not arrest them that was the wrong thing to do.

Chinedu Okobi was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos didn’t fire anybody and instead issued two False News Releases within hours of the Homicide.

Both George Floyd and Chinedu Okobi died at the scene of the crime and both were transported to hospitals to be pronounced dead at a different location.

George Floyd had a knee on his neck for approx. 9 minutes and Chinedu Okobi was sat up for approx. 9 minutes with his head down to make sure he could NOT breath even if he did become responsive which he did not.

The Attorney General took over the George Floyd Murder case and charged the other officers. The California Attorney General has remained silent in Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide.

1st False statement running in and out of traffic, 2nd Immediately assaulted Deputy, 3 rd later learned he died. Chinedu was dead at the scene.

5 months later and 2 full months after Coroner ruled Chinedu Okobi’s death a Homicide D.A. Wagstaffe makes this presentation to reporters.
I was the person who asked Wagstaffe about the Sheriff’s News Releases with false statements. You can see Wagstaffe call on me when the video above stops. The medics were tending to him before he went into cardiac arrest is a lie. Sheriff Bolanos knows that.
