Barbara Bonilla was the Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League. She was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. She was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for Sheriff 2018. She was President of California PAL, and high ranking member of National PAL association.
She was investigated for Embezzlement and Money Laundering.
She is being Prosecuted by the Attorney Generals Office, who has said very little publicly about the case.
I say this based on my personal experience of dealing with Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester in trying to get to the truth of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. Those two in my opinion did everything possible to obstruct that goal. I even recommended the City Council file a lawsuit against the Sheriff, District Attorney and County Counsel to release the AXON LOG RECORDS, they chose not to. Half Moon Bay City Council was very disturbed by the Homicide and wanted answers, and even went so far as to contact the Attorney General to Criminally Investigate the Sheriff, District Attorney Investigators and the Homicide. Again the City Managers intervened in the creation of the watered down wording of that letter.
One of the main differences I see between the Murder of Roger Allen and Sandra Lee Harmon is Daly City Mayor and the Council Members are fine with the Murder of another Black man in San Mateo County. Just like Millbrae was with Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by six Sheriff Employees. That was not the case in Half Moon Bay ALL Council Members were very upset and they said so.
Everybody knows the names of the 4 Daly City Police Officers should have been made public on April 7, 2021 the same day Roger Allen was killed. That is Transparency. Who is responsible for the behavior of the Daly City Police Chief? If it’s not the City Manager, and it’s not the Mayor, that leaves the silent City Council.
What did San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy (30 year Police Officer) say? Nothing
What did the Board of Supervisor’s say about Roger Allen’s Homicide by DCPD? Nothing
Mark D. Melville candidate for Sheriff of San Mateo County 2022 said “The police department should be conducting their own investigation to ensure all department directives were followed in handling said incident.” “There is no reason for the PD to withhold the names of all personnel involved in said incident.”
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told me,
“There are four officers involved in the Daly City shooting. It is the responsibility of the police chief to disclose the officers’ names, with the proviso that my office will disclose the names at the time of announcing the decision in the case. So at least for now that inquiry goes to Chief Patrick Hensley at DCPD.”
“Only one officer fired his weapon and he is on administrative leave. “
Than You, Colin Kaepernick.
I recently revisited the 2016 postgame interview when I was first asked about not standing during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” One of the reporters inquired about the reasoning behind my dissent. “There’s a lot of things that need to change,” I replied. “One specifically is police brutality. There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. Cops are getting paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards.”
The unnamed Daly City Police Officer who killed Roger Allen is on paid leave. City Managers, Mayors and City Council are responsible.
The Attorney General of the State of California should by Investigating Roger Allen’s Homicide. Everybody knows that.
SMCDA Inspector Jordan Boyd is the lead investigator in the x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez NF433910 case which is in court this morning after 6.5 years.
A Brady Officer is someone who is dishonest. The hope and goal is to have honest people in Law Enforcement everybody wants that.
In August 2014 Jordan Boyd asked Deputy Juan P. Lopez to provide him with his California Drivers License, as soon as Juan complied and gave Jordan the license he informed Juan that it was Suspended out of the Los Angeles area, he kept it and then he and others followed Juan to his car to make sure he did not drive home. Juan Lopez did not drive for the next 3 or 4 months. COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES
A reasonable person would ask How did Jordan Boyd know about Juan P. Lopez’s CDL without looking at a computer database? How many other CDL’s has Jordan Boyd removed from Law Enforcement Officers. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe informed me that his office does not handle any DMV issues.
SMCDA Inspector Jordan Boyd has admitted under oath that he started his own Investigation of Juan P. Lopez. Why?
A reasonable person would ask, In Jordan Boyd’s entire career how many criminal investigations has he just started on his own? He would have known that his Supervisor William Massey also a Brady Officer based simply on his own actions causing COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES when he twice tried to get Juan’s girlfriend fired. That’s really not what a high ranking Law Enforcement Officer is supposed to do. That is Dishonest.
The normal way is somebody would have filed a criminal complaint with a Law Enforcement Agency, that agency would decide if it should be referred to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution, If the D.A.’s office thought it should be investigated they would assign it to Jordan Boyd or someone in his position.
That did not happen in the Juan P. Lopez case.
San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Kimberly Perrotti filed a 24 page Motion in Limine last week. I was struck by item 4, EXCLUDE REFERENCE TO COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES EXPERIENCED BY DEFENDANT AS A RESULT OF THE INVESTIGATION, EXECUTION OF SEARCH WARRANTS, ARREST, AND SUBSEQUENT COURT PROCEEDINGS.
The people request exclusion of any collateral consequences defendant has experienced as a result of the investigation, excution of search warrants, arrest, and subsequent court proceedings in this case. This would include but is not limited to, any employment or employability consequences; embarrassment or shame, or any other effects resulting from members of the community learning of the investigation and prosecution. Evidence of or reference to these topics is irrelevant under Evidence code 350 and should be excluded.
When you read the word defendant replace it with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.
I’ve always wondered how a person who has sworn an Oath to enforce the law could do just the opposite. This is not the first DDA who has continued to produce a False case in San Mateo County. I’ve written about DDA Melissa McKowen several times in the past.
San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Kimberly Perrotti also doesn’t want the Jury to hear the words Prosecutorial Misconduct, I don’t blame her for that this case is FULL of Prosecutorial Misconduct. You wouldn’t want the Jury to be aware of it if your goal continue to cause harm.
I have had the privilege of serving on a jury in San Mateo County, I was the jury foreperson in a trial where the District Attorney charged a young Marine with a DUI case. The DDA knew she had NO EVIDENCE to prove her case but that didn’t stop her and it made No impact on her when the young Marine was found Not Guilty. I offered to meet with the DDA if she wished to find out why she lost that case. She had No interest in learning where she missed.
From that day on I always wondered how many other cases in San Mateo County are defendants Falsely Charged?

I can’t think of a more Important Story to write about on this day. Sure there are many other subjects like who is going to be the President of the United States of America. Let me tell you why I choose to write about former Deputy Juan P. Lopez on this day.
For me there is no more Important subject in San Mateo County than Corruption, and Abuse of Authority and Office.
I was on the phone with Juan Lopez when he was Arrested with guns to his head Six Years ago. That’s right I said Six Years ago.
Zain Jaffer was Arrested for Attempted Murder and 6 Felonies. His Criminal case went through the San Mateo County Justice System in less than 9 months, and that included the Preliminary Hearing where all charges were approved by the Evidence and Testimony presented in Court. The Attempted Murder Charge was never charged by the District Attorney’s Office for some reason. Arrested October 15, 2017 DISMISSED July 2,2018.
I was hoping to hear from Zain Jaffer by now to share with him some cases of abuse by the District Attorney’s Office, Wrongfully Charged, Over Charged etc. As he claimed he was interested in helping now that he knew how it felt to be Wrongfully Charged. Per his prepared statement made July 2, 2018. Matthews Craves, Vincent Valencia, and of course Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez are just a few of the many cases I can think of.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte who worked in Half Moon Bay Patrol Committed Perjury in Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom, He was on the Witness Stand under oath and he lied about videoing with his cellphone the arrest of a female Half Moon Bay Resident. The Judge, Sheriff Office, District Attorney’s Office, and David Silberman of the San Mateo Counsel were and still are aware of the PERJURY. Sergeant Michael Otte was never charged as a matter of fact Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos not only allowed him to retire he gave him a retirement send off.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino Arrested by Redwood City Police Department for DUI. RWCPD has two Daily Activity Log records. His arrest was not made public. I was the first to report it.
San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Kristina Bell 911 Domestic Violence Call to her residence by her partner, Redwood City Police at her home for hours. No ARREST made. Violation of San Mateo County Domestic Violence Policy. This response by RWCPD was not made public by the Police Department. I was the first to report it.
San Mateo County Sheriff Employee Barbara Bonilla who was the Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League was escorted out of her office on Feb. 10, 2020, She has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office which is a Big Deal, She has been removed from the State PAL and Federal PAL Boards. The Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Justice have and are Investigating her for Embezzlement and Laundering of SAL Funds. She has not been charged with any crime yet. That’s 10 months of a “Those Who Matter” person not being charged by the DOJ. That is longer than the Zain Jaffer case from Arrest to DISSMISSAL. I was the first to report it.
The Department of Justice has received a letter from the City of Half Moon Bay requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. This is a Historical Request by a City Council and it is Very Healthy to question Authority especially when so many False statements by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe were made to the Public.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon recently received a Distinguished Medal from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. I have publicly stated and written about Sergeant Jason Peardon being a Brady Officer. The City of Belmont has finally provided the Court with the documents that Juan Lopez’s attorney had to sue them to provide. He will be on the Witness stand in the Juan P. Lopez Criminal Trial hopefully going before a JURY soon.
Some of you know I have been recommending an AUDIT of the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Coroner’s Office, Private Defender Program etc. Audits are the easiest way to assure honesty in the performance of these offices San Mateo County.
San Mateo County has no Print Media interested in providing this information.
Please follow the Deputy Sheriff Juan P. Lopez case. November 16, 2020 set for Jury Trial, I’ll update. Remember if they can do this to a Sheriff Deputy they can do this to YOU.

Note: I mailed in my ballot on October 3, 2020 that is the very least I could do. Don’t get Distracted until this issue is solved we are all on this ride together.
Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd.
October 19, 2020 there was a Zoom Meeting that was hosted by two Councilmembers of the Town of Portola Valley.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was just one of the panelists.
Most of the panelists mentioned George Floyd’s name who I think any reasonable person who watched the video of him being murdered by a Police Officer would want that to stop. But most did not mention San Mateo County’s Chinedu V. Okobi who was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018 on El Camino Real, Millbrae/San Bruno.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos mentioned George Floyd Tragedy, not Homicide by police. He then mentioned “A Tragic Incident in Millbrae. Tasers ” No mention of Chinedu V. Okobi the 36 year old Father of a daughter, A Moorehouse Graduate, minding his own business simply walking while black on the sidewalk at 1PM in the afternoon. No 911 call, No Crime committed, No Guns, No Drugs etc. He was Tased 7 times, struct with extended baton, dogpiled by Six Sheriff Employees and finally sprayed in the face with O.C. Spray by the CSO Employee who was left out of the Sheriff’s and District Attorneys Press Release.
Sheriff Bolanos went on to say “I don’t believe that individual was killed by Taser.” That individuals name he is referring to is Chinedu V. Okobi, he can’t say it. He doesn’t mention the O.C. Spray to the face at close range after being tased 7 times, and dogpiled by Six.
Sheriff Bolanos went on to say that “AED’s are now in all Sheriff Patrol Vehicles.” I say so what, if you don’t use the AED what difference does it make how many you have. Sheriff Bolanos knows that his Six Employees didn’t provide any life saving measures for the next 8 minutes to Chinedu V. Okobi after he was handcuffed and sat up with his head slumped forward assuring his death. An AED was ONSCENE and not used.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe provided a highly edited and captioned video 5 months after the Homicide, which provides NO Evidence of Life Saving Measures being provided to Chinedu Okobi. When the EMT finally got to Okobi he was flatlined, they provided Chest compressions for another 8 minutes while he was handcuffed behind his back, they only took off handcuffs to put his dead body on the gurney. Sheriff Bolanos knows all of this.
Here is the Video you will notice no mention of the SIXTH Sheriff Employee. Remember “Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.”
Sandra Lee Harmon was the Unarmed woman who was shot at and killed by at least one San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay, California. She was shot at by Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez at least 5 times while she was unarmed and had her hands above her head. It’s not clear from the video if any of his shots hit her. Sheriff Deputy John Baba also fired shots at her as she bent down at the shotgun that was on the ground. This you can see in the video Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos released to the public 45 days after the killing.
August 24, 2020 I followed up with the San Mateo County Coroner on my request for a copy of the Official Coroners Report which will have the Manner of Death. The good news is the Report is now complete, and the Coroners Office has acknowledged my official request. The bad news is I was told that San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe would have to approve its release. They want to make sure it doesn’t impact any investigation by the D.A.’s Office. August 26, 2020 District Attorney has informed me the Investigation is complete and he expects to announce the results either tomorrow Friday 8/28/2020 or early next week. As soon as I get the copy I will report the results.
San Mateo County residents will remember that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos stated early on that there was a shoot-out, She fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez first as he was taking cover. Sheriff Bolanos also released a highly edited video 45 days after the killing of Sandra L. Harmon, in that video the viewer can see Ms. Harmon is Unarmed with her hands above her head while Five shots are being fired at her. Sheriff Bolanos has also explained as a matter of fact that both the Body Camera and the MAV Audio of Deputy Dominguez does not exist. Why? How is that possible? That’s two for two recording devices for the benefit of both law enforcement and the public.
Is it really true that both recordings do Not Exist?
Videos should be released ASAP to eliminate any suspicion the public might have about the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.
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.
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
KTVU Fox 2
Los Angeles Times
The Mercury News
San Francisco Chronicle
The Sacramento Bee
Boston Globe Subscribers
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
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!
As some of you know I personally requested Carlos G. Bolanos resign from San Mateo County Law Enforcement on May 14, 2007 Certified Mail.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has a bad habit of lying to the public. He has been doing that for a long, long time. San Mateo County Supervisors Warren Slocum, Don Horsley, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa and Carole Groom, County Counsel John Beiers, David Silberman, County Manager Mike Callagy are all fully aware of this and are not only fine with this fact but endorse this behavior.
Recently Sheriff Bolanos after 45 days released a video presentation of the Execution of Unarmed Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 7:25 PM at 845 Main Street Half Moon Bay, California. Sheriff Bolanos was quick to inform the public that she fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez who was taking cover behind his SUV Patrol Vehicle which was parked sideways right in front of her about 20 feet away. He reports to his sergeant that she fired two rounds which just happens to be all the shotgun holds which means it is now empty. Threat is diminished substantially. Adding to that threat downgrading is the fact that she no longer is in possession of the shotgun. At the 8:00 mark of the video provided to the pubic by Sheriff Bolanos you can hear Deputy Dominguez yell Put you hands up and see Unarmed Sandra Harmon with hers hands up and above head you can also hear FIVE shots being fired at her by 8:06 mark. Why?
Sheriff Bolanos is a master at misinformation, he and most of the media focus on Sandra Harmon Jay Walking & Reaching for an Empty Gun instead. If that sounds familiar it should Chinedu Okobi killed by 6 Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. All violated their Oath refused to provide medical aide for more than 8 minutes and Lied about it.
San Mateo County Residents should ask Sheriff Bolanos What is your policy regarding a Deputy shooting at an Unarmed citizen? So far it is Kill Now Lie Later.
Sheriff Bolanos doesn’t mention it at all. He should RESIGN. Sheriff Bolanos tells us that Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Camera for the conversation and shooting of Sandra Harmon. I might point out Deputy Dominguez has not said that. Deputy Dominguez went by himself to the motorhome with no body camera on is the story Carlos Bolanos is pushing. Why would a reasonable person believe that?
The good news is even if that were true, it really doesn’t matter because the In-Car Camera /Audio System will have recorded his conversation and we will be able to clearly hear the Shotgun Blasts. A reasonable person would expect to see damage to the patrol car with 2 rounds fired at a Deputy taking cover behind it less than 20 feet away.
What did Sergeant James E. Goulart recommend? What was the plan if he encountered the woman with a Shotgun, why was he alone?
That is exactly what happened when Yanira Serrano-Garcia was killed by Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of exiting his patrol vehicle. He was alone and No Plan. That 911 call was a Non Emergency Medial assistance call.
Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018 there was NO 911 call. No Plan
