A federal judge on Thursday July 7, 2022 sentenced Derek Chauvin to 21 years in prison for violating George Floyd’s civil rights.
Violating Civil Rights sounds so much nicer then Murder doesn’t it?
San Mateo County Residents, do any of you think Chinedu Valentine Okobi’s Civil Rights were not violated on October 3, 2018 in Millbrae at 1:00 PM in the middle of the afternoon by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees? I do.
CSO Joseph Gonzales, Sergeant David Weidner, Deputy Joshua Wang, Deputy Bryan Watt, Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti, Deputy John DeMartini.
The Governments Video Ommits CSO Joseph Gonzales like magic. 7:02-7:05 mark who do you see?
Chinedu V. Okobi was killed in Millbrae, in the middle of the afternoon on October 3, 2018 by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. After he had stopped breathing not one of the Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees provided ANY life saving measures for the next NINE MINUTES.
I have always wondered about San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang who first saw Chinedu walking south on the west side sidewalk. Deputy Wang was traveling Northbound on El Camino Real when he activated his overhead lights which also activated his dash Cam-Video as he waited to make a U-Turn to go back to Chinedu who was still on the sidewalk.
Last month on May 10, 2022 I sent San Francisco Police Chief William Scott a California Public Records Request CPRA regarding information for former San Francisco Police Officer Joshua Wang.
SFPD received my letter on May 11, 2022
I should have received a response by May 26, 2022. 10 Business Days
Today is June 7, 2022, There has been ZERO response.
acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.”
Judge Vince Chhabria saw what everybody who watched the video saw. Good for Sarah Gatliff
January 19, 2022, Judge Vince Chhabria wrote that it was plausible to believe Deputy David Dominguez, one of two officers to shoot the 56-year-old woman suffering from mental health issues, acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.” The judge noted that video evidence established that Dominguez shot Harmon in the back, while her hands were raised over her head, and that that shot was fatal.
Take a wild guess who else knows/knew that? You can start with the Supervisors of San Mateo County.
Every resident of San Mateo County should know who Sarah Gatliff is and support her in going ALL the way to a Jury Trial, no settlements. The Public has a right to know what really happened to her mother Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.
For example SMCSO Deputy David Dominguez FIRED THREE SHOTS FIRST.
You will recall Sandra Lee Harmon was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. San Mateo County Government never came out and informed the public that the SMC Employees shot at her while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. They also failed to mention she was shot in the back while unarmed.
Sarah the daughter is in court today on ZOOM at 1:00PM
Just ask the Families of Errol Chang R.I.P., Yanira Seranno Garcia R.I.P., Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. San Mateo County’s George Floyd, and Sarah Gatliff the daughter of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Roger Allen R.I.P. All Homicides by SMC Law Enforcement.
Los Angeles County wants a judge to force Kobe Bryant’s widow to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to prove she suffered emotional distress from leaked photos of the helicopter crash that killed her husband, daughter and seven others.
Who supports this disgusting behavior, all FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors, and almost every other elected official in the County.
Why would San Mateo County Residents need a Citizens Oversight Committee? That is what the Supervisors are paid to do, SUPERVISE.
Sunday, October 3rd at 2:00 pm, Chinedu Okobi Remembrance Rally led by the San Mateo NAACP, Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, Island United Church, Justice For Chinedu, the families of victims who died at the hands of law enforcement, community leaders and members.
Location: 400 County Center Building, Redwood City, California.
San Mateo County Residents don’t know very much about Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide, and that is exactly what the Government wants. When I say government I’m also including the Media/Newspapers.
Chinedu Valentine Okobi, is San Mateo County’s George Floyd, the difference is the world saw George Floyd Murdered because of a very brave 17 year old girl who videoed it and placed it on the internet before Law Enforcement, Elected Officials could get there hands on it. That is what happened in San Mateo County.
First lets start at the Top with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He is a LIAR, that is NO SECRET.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Omits Community Service Officer (CSO) Joseph Gonzales name. He was Very Involved.
Chinedu Valentine Okobi, was a 36 year old Father, Son, Brother, Moorehouse College Graduate, who was simply walking on the sidewalk on a sunny afternoon in Millbrae, when SMC Sheriff Deputy Wang got attracted to him.
I will be joining this group of very good humans tomorrow. I remember when I first met them at a Board of Supervisor Meeting, I thought to myself, These are my People.
San Mateo County there is reason for hope in the Law Enforcement Homicides of Errol Chang, Yanira Serrano Garcia, Chinedu V. Okobi, Sandra Lee Harmon and Roger Allen. Did San Mateo County Grand Jury ever convene for any of the above homicides? I don’t think so, Why not? Even if they did A.G. Rob Bonta just proved why they are not that important.
Independent and thorough review of the evidence and the law. That has always been what is important.
Salvador Sanchez, 32 former Los Angeles police officer was arrested on suspicion of voluntary manslaughter and two counts of assault with a firearm, according to a criminal complaint.
The A.G. has filed these charges after the Riverside grand jury heard evidence in this matter and concluded there was no basis for any criminal issues. This is the problem with Grand Jurys, the public rarely knows what evidence was presented to the jury.
“Where there’s reason to believe a crime has been committed, we will seek justice,” California Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta said in a statement. “That’s exactly what these charges are about: pursuing justice after an independent and thorough review of the evidence and the law.
Last year, LAPD Chief Michel Moore and the city’s civilian Police Commission ruled Sanchez’s actions were out of policy and were weighing whether he should be fired.
“The decisions and actions of this officer cannot be justified and are inconsistent with the department’s core values, training and expectations of every member of this organization,” Moore said last year.
Salvador Sanchez killed 32-year-old Kenneth French and wounded his elderly parents during a brief confrontation inside a Costco in Corona in June 2019. French, who lived with his parents, had the mental capabilities of a teenager, according to relatives.
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?
This is the City response after tabling the Jimenez-Rarback Report last week. Three of the council members want more discussion from the public, more listening sessions. They don’t think 7 years since Yanira Serrano Garcia’s Homicide by a sole San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy with No Plan on how to handle the Non Emergency Medical 911 call by her brother Tony Serrano is enough to take corrective action. Of course it is.
The Jimenez-Harback Report called for the creation of a Chief of Police for Half Moon Bay. A position with authority that answers to the City council. That seems like a strange request since Half Moon Bay has Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez who has attended many recent Zoom meetings he is identified as the Chief of Police of Services.
Joaquin Jimenez and Harvey Rarback have discovered what many in San Mateo County Government have known for a long time. The city has absolutely No say in how Sherif Carlos G. Bolanos provides Law Enforcement/Public Safety Services.
The Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 is a perfect example. Sheriff Bolanos told the world there was a Shootout and Ms. Harmon fired first at Deputy Dominguez. Of course if that Official Statement were true nobody would blame Deputy Dominguez for returning fire causing the death of Ms. Harmon. He told his Sergeant he fired 5-6 rounds. He actually fired 11 rounds, He failed to mention he fired at her first, and also while she was unarmed with her hands above her head and her back towards him. Ms. Harmon was shot three times in the back all Fatal. He also failed to mention he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera.
The AXON LOG RECORDS keep a precise record of all devices involved in a Critical Incident, example when they were turned on/off.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman are the lead opposition for making the AXON LOG RECORDS Public.
Those Records would prove the Government’s Official Statement to be true, Why won’t they release them?
The City of Half Moon Bay has requested those records and have been denied.
The Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting is set for June 24, 2021 5:00 P.M. at the Library
I recommend Half Moon Bay Invite Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Rachel A. Quintana and Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte to attend a future meeting.
