Stogner Report on Chinedu Okobi In-Custody Death.

This is a work in progress.

There were Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees not Five. It’s illegal for a civilian to participate in the takedown of Chinedu Okobi. Everybody in Law Enforcement knows that. CSO Joseph Gonzales is a civilian.

Nicole Basurto, A very good and concerned Citizen, Witness not found by Sheriff Office. She called in.“Thought it was odd the Deputies did not try to arrest Decedent Okobi when he was on the ground.”She was fairly certain that he died at the scene.” “A male deputy hit Okobi 3-4 times with a closed fist, seemed directed to his head.”

San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 “I have determined the manner of Death to be Homicide.”

San Mateo County Sheriff IT Technician Johnson Hang was unable to download Deputy Wang & Sergeant Weidner’s MAV  Video from patrol cars at the crime scene.

Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell unable to download his witness interviews he tried twice, Vie-Vu software owned by Axon.

San Mateo County Criminalist II Anthony Delmonico: District Attorney’s office requesting the Forensic Investigation of an “In-Custody Death.”

Caption in D.A.’s video at the 7:22 mark “ A deputy attempts to subdue Okobi with Pepper Spray, but mistakenly hits his fellow deputies and Sergeant.” Steve Wagstaffe does not identify the sprayer as Deputy Wang, Why? His Expert Jeffrey Martin says it was Deputy Wang. There is only one Deputy it could be and that is Wang. There is one other possibility and that might be why Wagstaffe chose not to identify Wang as the sprayer of Pepper Spray. “At the t 7:18 mark Civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales’s right hand can clearly be seen unholstering and discharging pepper spray.” He then puts it back in his belt and backs away.

Sergeant Weidner calls it a Crime Scene at 11:31 mark. Why is arresting a suspect a Crime Scene?

Sergeant Weidner 13:26 Mark on cellphone “Dude’s alive that’s all you need to know, We’re good.”

Sergeant Weidner 10/03/2018  says Okobi was Pepper Sprayed changes story. Why?

14:35 mark says: “He’s been tasered several times and Peppered Sprayed.”

15:03 mark says: “ He’s been tased twice and Pepper Sprayed.”

Weidner Statement to Jamie Draper on 10/04/2018 prepared 10/12/2018

“He was told later it was Deputy Wang who deployed the pepper spray at that point in the struggle; however he did not see him do it.” Sergeant Weidner speculated the pepper spray was possibly directed upward at the subject’s face while he was in a somewhat prone position on the ground which caused the spray to miss the subject completely and instead strike Deputy Watt, Deputy Lorenzatti and Sergeant Weidner.

D.J. Wozniak President of the Deputy Sheriff Association, the Union calls Sgt. Weiner at the Crime Scene audio goes silent. 22:10 mark. Why is he calling Weidner?

Deputy De Martini to Jamie Draper (Sincere report)

“He said he felt a Pulse but said due to the fact he had just been struggling with Okobi he was no longer certain if he felt Okobi’s pulse or his own.”

Also said “ I kind of raised up his head a little bit.”

Deputy Watt to Jamie Draper (Sincere report.)

“Said he was speaking to Decedent Okobi, telling him to relax and breath, But he did not recall Okobi ever saying anything in response.

San Mateo County District Attorney Office Video and Reports

San Mateo County District Attorney Office Press Conference March 1, 2019

 

 

 

 

March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney held a Press Conference.

The members of the Public were not included.

8:20 mark Steve Wagstaffe tells the reporters that the “Cause of Death was Cardiac Arrest.”

47:40 mark, KQED Reporter Julie Small asked “Do you know the manner of death?” Wagstaffe says “The Coroner of this County Labeled it a Homicide.” He went on to say Homicide occurring during interaction with that individual.”

Had Reporter Small of KQED not asked that question Steve Wagstaffe was not going to mention Homicide

I, Michael G. Stogner Co-owner of San Mateo County News.Com asked Steve Wagstaffe @ 37:39 mark.

“After Mr. Okobi stopped breathing, You mentioned in your presentation somebody said get him in a seated position, can you identify which deputy said that? 

Wagstaffe said, “It was Sgt Weidner, “He actually uses the words Positional Aphysixation watch for that, But he was breathing and he had a pulse.”

Q. By putting him in a seated position, Did his head not go forward and stop his breathing?” Note: Seated Position @ 10:27 mark

Wagstaffe said “It did not.””The belief was Not, that it did not occur.” “Because they continued to check for the breathing.” check head position at 10:27 mark it did go forward Mr. Wagstaffe.

Wagstaffe said, “But he was breathing and he had a pulse at the time.” “He actual uttered some words.” No Caption at time with words allegedly uttered 

Wagstaffe said, “It was a couple of minutes, several minutes after he was turned over to the AMR people.” “Deputies are out of the picture then it’s over to the medical people.”

The video does not support Steve Wagstaffe’s statement.

Video shows AMR #37 Suzanne Holman @17:55 mark giving Sternum Rub, Checking for a Pulse, and tilting head back. If a Reasonable Person takes the meaning of several minutes to mean 3 minutes that would take you to the 20:55 mark.

Wagstaffe said, He was still breathing when the Sheriff Deputies turned him over to the ARM people.” Question, What time was Okobi turned over to the AMR people? Question, Who from the FOUR AMR people is District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe talking about? Here are the AMR people, Suzanne Holman #37, Forrest Uhland #37, Patrick Pham #94 & Ferdinand Retanubun #94

According to Daly City Police Officer Joshua McQuade who interviewed S. Holman on 10/04/2018

AMR #37 Suzanne Holman “She said she did not touch the decedent.”

AMR #37: Forrest Uhland  “Did not render any medical aid to decedent Okobi personally.”

AMR #94 Ferdinand Retanubun said “His unit was assigned to treat the injured deputy who was bleeding from the face (Deputy Wang)

AMR #94 Partick Pham said he was assigned to attend to two (2) Sheriff’s Deputies whom he described as an Asian deputy with abrasions to his face, (Deputy Joshua Wang) and a bald deputy who had been exposed to pepper spray (Deputy Bryan Watt).

Wagstaffe said, “You can hear the AMR people say to him, Check the pulse make sure he is still breathing.” That sentence makes no sense at all. A Reasonable Person would have to ask, Who is Wagstaffe calling Him? He can’t be talking about Chinedu Okobi, He has been dead since 9:10 mark.

Wagstaffe said, “You don’t see them taking out their nightsticks.” -5:27 mark

Deputy Wang & Deputy Watt both brought out their Batons. In the DA’s Video at the 10:57 Mark you will see Deputy DeMartini Tampering with Evidence by picking up a Taser and Extended Baton and putting them in CSO’s Sheriff Pick Up Truck.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s News Release was a lie. Suspect Immediately Assaulted the Deputy, Why?

Fact: There was No Immediate Assault of a Deputy. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knew that.

Who word crafted that? How many people were involved in that false statement?

A Reasonable Person after viewing the Video prepared by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe will come to the conclusion that Chinedu V. Okobi died on El Camino Real, Millbrae California at the 9:10 mark 87 seconds before his body was sat up on his rear end with his legs straight out and his head slumped forward closing his airways. That is a full 9 minutes 40 seconds before CPR Chest Compressions were given while his hands were handcuffed behind his back. During this time there was a lot of talk and captions about checking his pulse but there is little evidence any of the 5 Sheriff Deputies or the Civilian CSO Joseph Gonzales did actually check his pulse.

SMCSO Deputy De Martini’s statement, He said he felt a pulse, but said due to the fact he had just been struggling with Okobi, he was NO LONGER Certain if he felt Okobi’s pulse or his own. That’s pretty honest. He also said “I kind of raised up his Head a little bit.

SMCSO Sergeant David Weidner “I Never take his pulse or anything like that.”

SMCSO Watt He was Unsure if decedent Okobi was breathing because he was not moving around to the extent Deputy Watt expected after the struggle. Regarding checking pulse.”Trying to reach” “I stopped trying to take a pulse because he was moving his head around.”

SMCSO Deputy Wang Did not check Okobi for a pulse.

SMCSO Lorenzatti “Put him in a seated position Paramedics arrived on the scene and she recalled seeing a paramedic determine Okobi did have a pulse.”  Deputy Lorenzatti did NOT check pulse. This statement makes it look like the paramedics were right there and started caring for Chinedu Okobi.  It was 10 minutes and 29 seconds of Okobi sitting with his head slumped down before paramedics at 17:59 Caption   “Paramedics try to awaken Okobi and attempt to locate a pulse.”

Jeffrey Martin the expert hired by Steve Wagstaffe and paid approx. $15,000 by Taxpayers stated 7:10 as the time Okobi was Handcuffed. Wagstaffe’s video doesn’t give a caption for time handcuffed. Weidner states Okobi was placed in seated position within 10 seconds of being handcuffed. That would be 7:20 Martin says 20 seconds so 7:30 Okobi in seated position. The video shows 10:27 Chinedu Okobi sat up on his rear end completely limp and unresponsive with head slumped forward which would have stopped his breathing if he was in fact breathing at that time. That is a 3 MINUTE difference between Expert and Deputy statements and the Video evidence.

Positional Asphyxia

SMCSO Press Release October 3, 2018

The deputy exited his vehicle to contact the suspect and the suspect immediately assaulted the deputy, that is the biggest lie of the two. a male adult who was running in and out of traffic on El Camino Real is the second.

Chinedu Okobi was not running in and out out traffic before Deputy Wang tried to herd him with his vehicle including driving the wrong way on ECR.

 

Supervisor Don Horsley while serving as Sheriff terminated the employment of a Correctional Officer for being dishonest, lying to a law enforcement officer during an investigation.

Don Horsley Terminates Employee for Dishonesty

The False San Mateo County Sheriff Office Press/News Release is the same thing. Everybody in the DA’s Office, County Counsel, and Sheriff’s Office who had access to the data knew the Press Release was Dishonest. There lies the problem for SMC residents/

PIO Rosemerry Blankswade and Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos are responsible for this press release to be put out to the public.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe took 5 months to finally release a highly edited creation of video/some-audio including Captions he felt would be helpful in misleading the public to believe that Chinedu V. Okobi “He was still breathing when the Sheriff Deputies turned him over to the AMR people.” He takes it a step further and said it was several minutes after AMR had him. If several means 3 minutes that would be around the 21:00 in his video. Wagstaffe does not tell you what time in the video that transfer of responsibility occurred.

Wagstaffe also fails to identify CIVILIAN CSO Joseph Gonzales 6:26 mark who was physically involved in the takedown of Mr. Okobi. It was Illegal for him to be involved. “He had multiple red/brown stains located on his person from the altercation.”

You can see him in action at the 7:18 mark when several deputies get pepper sprayed. Wagstaffe’s Caption at 7:22 mark “A deputy attempts to subdue Okobi with pepper spray but mistakenly hits his fellow deputies and sergeant.” Joesph Gonzales is not a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy, Wagstaffe knows that. He doesn’t identify the deputy, Why? Wagstaffe’s Expert Jeffrey Martin says Deputy Wang did it. There are 5 deputies and 1 CSO that makes 6 people involved. Three of them got sprayed, that leaves two deputies, Deputy DeMartini’s statement rules him out. The person who did the spraying said “I did, I did that.” Jamie Draper has access to voice recognition software it should be simple to identify who said those words. It’s one of two people Deputy Wang  or CSO Civilian Gonzales.

Wagstaffe & Bolanos only identify the 5 deputies Why? It was Illegal for CSO Joseph Gonzales to be involved that’s why.

Wagstaffe fails to put a caption at the 10:57 mark. Deputy DeMartini Tampering with Evidence

Wagstaffe’s Video and Data Released March 1, 2019

Partial Video of March 1, 2019 Press Conference KPIX CBS SF

I attended the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Press Conference on March 1, 2019. At the -12:02 mark I asked Steve Wagstaffe “After Mr. Okobi stopped breathing, By putting him in a seated position did his head not go forward and stop his breathing?”

Steve Wagstaffe responded “It did not.” “The belief was not.” “That did not occur.” Because they continued to check for the breathing.

“But he was breathing and he had a pulse at that time.”

“He actually uttered some words.” Really? What were the uttered words, who heard them, and what time on the video? No caption for this important assertion.

The Video Wagstaffe produced shows otherwise at 10:27 mark.

A thought for the readers, Steve Wagstaffe and his TEAM and Sheriff Carlos Bolanos have had all of the data for 5 months. It was withheld from reporters and the public for 5 months.

Effective May 1, 2019 ALL E-MAILS WILL BE DELETED THAT ARE 90 DAYS OLD AND OLDER.

Welcome to San Mateo County.

SMC’s Thomas A. Swift Electric Rifle (TASER) Forum.

The real topic of Excessive & Unnecessary Use of Force was not broached.

February 11, 2019 San Mateo County Supervisor’s Committee on Thomas A. Swift Electric Rifle (TASER) Forum. Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom thought that this would satisfy the Good and Concerned Citizens of San Mateo County and would be a lot easier than actually Supervising Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that they Illegally Appointed on July 12, 2016, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe who is refusing to release the videos and audio recordings which contain stupid statements by the 5 deputies “do you want water.”

Ginny Kraus (holding up sign) has said from day one “This will NOT go away.” She means it.

This is just a small sample of the citizens that have been showing up consistently for 132 days requesting/demanding honesty from the Elected Officials of San Mateo County. They understand that accidents happen, sometimes in custody deaths occur by accident, It’s what was done right after a death that makes the difference. How many seconds after Chinedu stopped breathing was CPR administered and by who and for how long? This information is what the recordings will provide to the public. D.A. Steve Wagstaffe is refusing to release those recordings.

J.R. Stone KRON video 58 second mark

Chindeu V. Okobi was Murdered by 5 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on October 3, 2018 on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California. All 5 Deputies failed to handcuff him when he was tased. Instead one officer backed away, another raised an extended baton, not one got on the ground to handcuff him before he composed himself and got up to save his own life and run away. He did not accomplish that as they continued to torture him to death, after passing according to Ebele they grabbed him like a bag of garbage sat him which caused his head to lean forward closing his airway which assured his death. No CRP given.

So many great people attended the meeting several who have lost relatives to excessive and unnecessary force which is protected in San Mateo County. I would like to thank the majority of Sheriff Deputies who ignored their Union President D.J. Wozniak’s call to arms to show up in force to intimate the public. I saw very few of the deputies there.

LVMPD to a Citizen Journalist “Just because you have a website doesn’t mean your part of the Press.”

The above statement made at 1:41 minute mark in video. At the 11:00 mark they arrest the citizen journalist. This was at the Metro Press Conference.

This is the same Las Vegas Metro Police that did this to Jody L. Williams door at 9:30PM October 12, 2018. Claiming they just wanted to ask her a couple of questions. It’s also the same LVMPD that told Mark DePaula that they had nothing to do with the April 21, 2007 Operation Dollhouse Sting by the FBI which Detained/Transported UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos according to Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf former President of the DSA.

San Mateo County’s Measure W should be audited. It passed by about 500 votes in the last 2 days of counting. DMV

By Michael G. Stogner

As a Private Victim’s Advocate I have personally filed a criminal complaint to both the State of California Attorney General Kamala Harris and San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe & John Warren, then publicly informed Board of Supervisors.

SMCBOS Meeting June 2, 2015 at 19:34 minute mark

The criminal complaint was simple, some person(s) Hacked the State of California’s DMV Data Base. They placed San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s confidential and protected drivers license number on another person’s ticket out of Los Angeles area causing him to have a suspended license and about $6,000 expense plus 3 months of no driving. You might have guessed it, neither law enforcement agency had any interest in Investigating the complaint. There lies the problem Oversight of Law Enforcement.

DMV under scrutiny in voting glitch
State leaders will assess whether registration errors changed November election results.
By John Myers
SACRAMENTO — Faced with evidence that some voter registration forms weren’t properly filed by California’s Department of Motor Vehicles, state officials will now investigate whether any votes were wrongly rejected and whether the final results in any state or local races should be reconsidered.
Secretary of State Alex Padilla and leaders of the agency that oversees the DMV agreed on Monday to settle a federal lawsuit brought by advocacy groups including the League of Women Voters of California and the American Civil Liberties Union. The settlement, in part, states that Padilla’s office will “take steps to ensure that every vote is counted” if ballots were rejected and will provide “guidance to elections officials in the relevant jurisdiction(s) on how to count the affected ballots and, if appropriate, recertify election results.”
On Dec. 14, DMV officials revealed that staff members had not transmitted voter registration files for 589 people whose applications or updated applications were filled out before the close of registration for the Nov. 6 statewide election. At the time, state officials could not confirm whether any of those voters had been turned away on election day, or if any had cast last-minute provisional ballots that were rejected in the final tally.
Monday’s settlement raises the possibility that a full investigation of the delayed voter registration documents could reveal races in which the outcome might have changed had those voters been allowed to participate.
State officials now have 60 days to complete an investigation into the identity of those voters and why DMV staff members failed to transmit the files in a timely fashion.
The error was the latest in a series of mishaps revealed in the first six months of operation for California’s new automated “motor voter” program, under which DMV customers are registered to vote unless they decline.
“I am committed to working with new leadership at DMV and the new administration to ensure integrity of the motor voter program and accuracy of the data,” Padilla said in a statement Monday night. “This settlement continues to move those efforts forward.”
Padilla’s office said on Tuesday that a preliminary investigation had not found any instances in which voter registration delays would have changed the outcome of a race.
The deadline to register for November’s election was Oct. 22. The records in question either came in before that deadline, or included documents signed and dated before that date. A Dec. 14 letter to Padilla from Jean Shiomoto, who was then DMV director, said the registration records weren’t submitted “due to a misunderstanding on the part of the department, for which we take responsibility.”
Shiomoto retired from state government at the end of 2018. Gov. Gavin Newsom has yet to appoint a new permanent director.
“We continue to actively work with our stakeholders to ensure full transparency for the California motor voter program,” Melissa Figueroa, deputy secretary for communications at the California State Transportation Agency, said in a statement Monday. “As an agency, we are committed to getting this right.”
The settlement, filed Monday in a San Francisco federal court, said that DMV staffers failed to transmit voter registration documents in a timely fashion beginning Oct. 12 and that all documents were held back for the three weeks following election day.
Several other problems were reported just days after state officials launched the DMV’s automated voter registration system in late April.
Those included multiple registration forms sent to counties for the same voter , flawed registrations for 23,000 DMV customers and a limited number of non-U.S. citizens — permanent green-card residents — mistakenly added to the voter rolls.
The agreement to investigate why DMV officials didn’t promptly submit hundreds of voter registration forms “establishes concrete steps that California will take to investigate and improve the DMV voter registration system,” said Melissa Breach, executive director of the League of Women Voters of California.

San Mateo County Snake Oil, Cures All That Ails You. Come Get Some!

 

screen shot 2019-01-05 at 10.39.27 am

For over a year there was a pattern of police use of force deaths, in San Mateo County. This pattern culminated, in the October 3, 2018 Millbrae death of 36 year old pedestrian Chinedu Okobi.

Despite what would appear to any reasonably objective observer, an escalating body count, Mr Wagstaffe, as District Attorney, did nothing to address / curb the situation. And now, his administration is seemingly poised to render a decision blaming Okobi’s death, on something other than the unnecessary & excessive use of force by officers. This is a familiar pattern with DA Steve Wagstaffe, with his having blamed previous deaths on the decedents -their respective acts & medical conditions.

Most recently, he went on television saying he was not going to speculate on the Okobi case, that he had to get all the facts, before rendering a decision on the matter. Yet, instead of keeping his word, he went on camera and questioned the product liability aspect of Tasers, a device repeatedly used by officers, in their confrontation of Okobi .

Mr. Wagstaffe ignored a year long prologue of police use of force deaths, in his very jurisdiction. And then he told us he was not going to release videos, in his possession, ones which depict exactly what had happened, in the most recent death, that of Mr. Okobi.

17862588_1618867384820560_4466109734454003179_n

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

Just as his office had excluded two African American’s from serving on the jury in the Tracey Biletnikoff murder case, a matter in which he had been criticized by the appellate court. This was a Murder Conviction reversed because of Wagstaffe’s behavior. “During jury selection, the prosecutor, Stephen Wagstaffe, peremptorily struck the only two African-American members of the jury pool… We hold that a comparative juror analysis, in combination with other facts in the record, demonstrates that the prosecutor’s purported race-neutral reasons for striking at least one of the jurors were pretexts for racial discrimination.”

He now says he is not going to release the videos and audio recordings of Chinedu’s murder to the public, his employers, so that they can see them.

The People do not need an interpreter, to understand what they are seeing for themselves, Mr. Wagstaffe.

Okobi’s mother and sister were shown the videos and audio recordings, and here is what his sister, Ebele, said about them:

It’s readily apparent you are struggling to shoehorn your narrative of what occurred with the facts and, in so doing, you have passed the rubicon of truthfulness, leaving honesty & integrity behind, and entering a sea of deception -familiar territory for yourself, a directed or desired outcome.

The taint and stench you and your cadre have brought to the office of district attorney is palpable and, I submit, can not be removed, without your & their removal.

Felony fraud resulting in the diversion of over 2 million dollars of public monies being characterized by your office as sloppy accounting practices, at San Mateo County Transit, is but one / just one example of DA Wagstaffe’s aversion to the truth. False debits are not errors or sloppy accounting, Steve, they are intentional criminal acts.

Here is the letter from Albert Serrato falsely declaring that no crimes were committed in the SamTrans fraud brought by 3 whistleblowers, who were accountants and risked and lost their own jobs.

The bias you have demonstrated, when it comes to Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and former Sheriff Greg Munks, excusing their abhorrent behavior & giving them a pass, when they were detained by Las Vegas metropolitan police and the FBI, in a human trafficking investigation, one in which they had gone to a home being used as a whorehouse in a rundown residential neighborhood with Asian indentured sex-slaves, at least one of whom was a minor, and a cache (3,500 tablets) of illegal ecstasy drugs, is reprehensible and not in keeping with the public’s trust, Steve.

In that unguarded moment, in what you thought would be a confidential email to the duo, you expressed your support and consoled the two that the matter would soon pass and become yesterday’s news. This provides a rare glimpse into the flawed (real) character & thinking of who is District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Here are those emails, #ThoseWhoMatter:

emails&literature

The fact that Okobi’s killers are back at work, armed, with unfeathered contact with the public & custodies alike, is testament to the fact DA Wagstaffe has cleared them and communicated this information to Sheriff Bolanos. Yet he is still massaging his findings to the public, delaying what he has obviously determined -that the officers’ use of force resulting in Okobi’s death was justified (reasonable) and that he and his office are going to do nothing about it, giving them a pass.

You are a snake oil salesman, Steve, selling the public adultered versions of the truth and being a shill for morally corrupt county officials. Release the videos, so we can see just how much!

If you as the reader are asking, “How on Earth is Steve Wagstaffe still the District Attorney of San Mateo County.” You are on the right track. The short answer is that you are responsible for him being there. He can only be recalled or voted out. He has full immunity for anything he does.

Chinedu Okbobi Murdered by 5 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. Dave Pine, Warren Slocum, Don Horsley, David Canepa, Carole Groom, Mike Callagy & John Beiers Couldn’t care less.

October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi was guilty of Walking While Black in Millbrae, California. For this crime he was Murdered. Who knows this, lets start with Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Coroner Robert Foucrault, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, John Warren, Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, Senator Jerry Hill, Millbrae City Council, Millbrae City Manager and Attorney. Town of Woodside elected officials and Town manager and attorney. Half Moon Bay Elected Officials, Manager& Attorney, San Carlos Elected Officials Manager & Attorney. The seven Editors of the papers aka advertising businesses.

I know of only one SMC Elected Official who has publicly asked, Do you think Chinedu Okobi was Murdered? That was Sabrina Brennan, San Mateo County Harbor District Commissioner.

“CRUSH THE LIFE OUT OF HIM”

That is what this brave SMC Employee said

Why should these Good & Concerned Citizen have to continue to tell the Supervisors to do the job they were elected to do and they took an Oath to do. Their silence means they are OK with the Murder of a man who committed no crime, was unarmed, and any mental illness had NOTHING to do with his Murder.

The other group of San Mateo County Employees who is void of a leader is the entire San Mateo County Sheriff Office all 800 of them. Shame on You for your Silence.
