How many times has the (CRP) been activated since its creation in 2008?
Instead of Supervisor President Don Horsley and the 4 other Supervisors opening up who knows how many Looking Into/Report Back, The Attorney General Rob Bonta The Sheriff’s Office & The District Attorney’s Office sort of Investigate something request, and the hiring of a retired Judge Winifred Y. Smith at $650.00 per hour with a $75,000 contract to do Who Knows What.
San Mateo County Government, Just make the Affidavit PUBLIC.
“Batmobile Raid” “Exposes Ungodly Law Enforcement Abuse Of Power & Corruption in San Mateo County.”
All San Mateo County Elected Officials and Candidates are Welcome to attend.
Government spending $650.00 per Hour for Judge Winfred Y. Smith, What happened to the “Gym Teacher” @ $150.00 per hour “PPE Guy”
Stogner Says: Don Horsley should pay the entire expense for the Hon. Judge Winifred Smith, through ADR Services, Inc., She will be paid at the rate of $650.00 per hour not to exceed $75,000. The Batmobile case “Non Criminal Investigation to Assure San Mateo County Residents.” WTF
One can only hope the DOJ can look at San Mateo County.
Department of Justice’s probe into public corruption in the city and county of San Francisco.
August 25, 2022 Judge William Orrick Sentenced Mohammed Nuru to 7 years in Prison.
Mohammed Nuru in January pleaded guilty to what federal prosecutors described as “a staggering amount of public corruption” during his time leading the city’s Department of Public Works. Federal prosecutors said that over a 12-year period, Nuru accepted more than $1 million in money, international trips, jewelry, restaurant meals and other goods and services from city contractors and developers in exchange for preferential treatment and confidential information about city business.
The public is asking for Sheriff Carlos to be fired and his pension to be forfeited, Don Horsley has not made an official statement. Rishi Kumar candidate for Congress has.

“In an era where law enforcement is under such siege, this seems like this was not very well thought out,” San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley told me. “What we’re trying to do — what we should be trying to do — is establish credibility with people, not do things that look like we’re doing favors. And that’s kind of, unfortunately, what this looks like.”
And on Saturday, the county retained retired Superior Court Judge Winifred Y. Smith to launch yet another investigation. WHY? “What we can do is extremely limited,” said Horsley, who was sheriff for 14 years. “This is the California Constitution. The sheriff is an elected officer. We can’t remove them from office. And nor would we, over one particular incident, but it is a heck of an incident.”
This comment has got to be my favorite Former School Teacher, Former Sheriff, and President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Don Horsley quote: “We can’t remove them from office. And nor would we, over one particular incident, but it is a heck of an incident.”
Don Horsley said “over one particular incident” Is the Mark Racop Batmobile Abuse of Authority case the only case of Abuse of Law Enforcement that Don Horsley is aware of?
Has Don Horsley ever heard of ret. San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez two Criminal Cases involving the exact same San Mateo County Employees committing crimes against a Sheriff Deputy? 15-SF-001819-E | The People of the State of California vs. JUAN PABLO LOPEZ, People vs. Juan Pablo Lopez case NF433910A, SF395377F | The People of the State of California vs. JUAN PABLO LOPEZ.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Operation Dollhouse FBI Sting Operation on April 21, 2007 at 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada at 9:30 PM. LVMPD Spokesperson Bill Cassell stated his officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos INSIDE the residence. Now that was either a drug deal gone bad 3,500 ecstasy tablets, and $25,000 cash or they were INSIDE to have sex with Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor. Nobody knows because has ever Investigated it.
Has Don Horsely ever heard about the 2010 report of 45 male employees in the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office watching and sharing PORN and a VIOLENT RAPE VIDEO on San Mateo County Computers?
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Chinedu V. Okobi being killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Did he ever watch the video that SMC Government made public which shows the Employees never provided medical assistance for 9 minutes after he stopped breathing.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Sandra Lee Harmon who was executed by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Employees in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. Has he ever watched the video that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provided the public which shows an unarmed woman with her hands up above her head and her back facing towards the Deputy who is firing at her. She did have 3 fatal shots in her back.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel Quintana who was falsely arrested and charged in RETALIATION for making a report in the HMB substation.
Has Don Horsley ever heard of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Investigation. SMCSO Lt. Michael Leishman was the lead Investigator, that is a nice trick having the Sheriff’s Office investigate itself.
San Mateo County News.com has been reporting on Gangs, Organized Crime, Corruption in San Mateo County Government for many years. I’ve listed just a few off the top of my head.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and the “Those Who Matter” gang have been operating for MANY years. This is just the Tip of the Iceberg.
This is just one reason San Mateo County News.com is Endorsing Rishi Kumar for Congress.
“Rishi Kumar is the real deal, It’s that simple. Just ask yourself of all of the San Mateo County Elected Officials and Candidates for Offices in this next election, how many are willing to take simple stances for justice? How many are running for ethics-in-politics? Rishi Kumar will fight for the people and will never sell out. You can trust Rishi to get things done!”
Sock Pow Zock! Holy Batmobile and Misuse of Power Caper!
San Mateo County Sheriff spends taxpayer money, dispatching deputies to browbeat a Batmobile manufacturer in Indiana
San Mateo County Sheriff dispatched a squad of deputies to Indiana over a local business dispute. This wasted taxpayer dollars and caused a social media furor
Rishi has always called out these transgressions, whether in the recent case of the Valley Water Board or Anna Eshoo’s misleading claims regarding her legislative record
Rishi’s run is about ethics in politics, and he will always take action to back up his words
This draws a stark contrast between Anna Eshoo and Rishi Kumar (there are no Republicans on the November ballot), a difference that will help you cast your vote this November!
Truth can be stranger than fiction, and the tale of the San Mateo County Sheriff dispatching a squad of local deputies over 2000 miles away to browbeat a builder of replica Batmobiles in Indiana (allegedly on behalf of a friend in Atherton) seemed like something out of a cartoon. Or was it just San Mateo County politics as usual?
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos had just lost to challenger Captain Christina Corpus in the June primary election, but as a lame duck, Sheriff Bolanos committed an serious violation of ethical principles. Allegedly doing a favor for a friend, Sheriff Bolanos misspent taxpayer dollars to crowbar a minor business dispute into criminal court. It is time for Sheriff Bolanos to resign and help the county put this embarrassment behind it.
Rishi Kumar has made it a top priority to scrub our government clean of corruption no matter the party affiliation or allies of those in question. The Bolanos Batmobile scandal exceeds the limits of what we as a community can permit. This is an outrageous example of petty corruption in our district. Rishi has proved his willingness to stand against unsavory practices and corrupt politicians, opposing Santa Clara Valley Water District Measure A and calling for the resignation of four board members after they disingenuously extended their eligibility to four consecutive terms, while spending $3.2 million of taxpayer dollars.
Rishi will always reject money from Special Interest groups in his campaign. He will only accept money from people like you, and this pledge will never be broken. On the city council, he has always rejected land-developer money.
As a Representative, Rishi will be in a position to bring real change. He is a beacon of hope, fighting against the corrupt practices of selfish politicians. For your interests, not special interests – and never turning a blind eye to corruption.
Rishi Kumar, U.S. House of Representative, district 16 candidate.
A gang is a group or society of associates. It’s not Illegal to be a member of a gang.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, San Mateo County Executive Officer Mike Callagy, San Mateo County Logistics Section Chief Risk Manager Scott Johnson, San Mateo County Counsel John Nibblin, & David Silberman, SMCSO Ed Wood, Jason Peardon, Andrew Armando are all associates.
Don’t forget all five Supervisors of San Mateo County.
Everybody and their mother has known or should have known about this GANG since April 21, 2007. This is Nothing New here, Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case for the last 7.5 years is another perfect example.
Please read the article or watch the video in full.
Your ‘chickens have come home to roost’. This department’s behavior is not only a reflection of Bolanos, who residents have overwhelmingly voted out, but it is also a reflection on each and every one of you. This is the same department that you have empowered and enabled for years.
I have warned you for years about this department’s corrupt and undisciplined behavior. And you stood by and did nothing.
My as to you: Launch an independent and unbiased investigation (made up of people that have no relationship to this department) to identify other corrupt deputies in this department. Initiate an independent investigation into this department’s bias when working with Caucasian and POC residents.Provide a fact-based answer on why minorities (as a percentage of their respective populations) are more likely to get ticketed with the San Mateo Sheriff’s department than their Caucasian counterparts?
The data is there. It needs to be analyzed and reported. Thank you.
We teach our children the importance of Keeping Your Word or Keeping Your Promise.
Making San Mateo County Safer has been a project of mine for the last 22 years. I have found only one Elected Official (Politician) who shared that goal.
The question remains unanswered, Will Giselle Hale serve if she is elected in November, or will she refuse to be swore in?
Giselle Hale is the Mayor of Redwood City, To my knowledge she has done NOTHING to eliminate the Redwood City Police Departments TWO sets of Daily Activity Log Records.
“I like to get things done.” That is what Giselle Hale claims.
I personally would like to see her FIX the two sets of Books. That would go along way in Making San Mateo County Safer. San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Colin Smith Arrested TWICE by RWCPD. San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino Arrested for DUI by RWCPD. There is also the RWCPD responding to the Domestic Violence call to San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Kristina Bell’s home that never made it to either of RWCPD daily records.
Both of those arrests were hidden from the PUBLIC. That is a Very Bad Idea.
That is SOMETHING she could do right this minute, she is the MAYOR. I can’t think of a better example to demonstrate “I like to get things done.”
Now that she has officially ended her Campaign. Her name is still on the ballot and people will still vote for her. I think the average San Mateo County Resident would appreciate the stopping of the phone calls, yard signs, door knocking, canvassing asking for Donations, etc. How hard is it for a VOTER to Google Giselle Hale to see if they want to vote for her?
Giselle Hale might also consider resigning from Mayor of Redwood City, and that would give her even more quality time with her children and husband which is what she claims as her reason for ending her campaign.
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?
The first sentence: The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has concluded its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr. Chinedu Okobi, which occurred on October 3, 2018 after a physical struggle with five deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office on the 1400 block of El Camino Real in Millbrae.
No mention of CSO Joseph Gonzales the 6th SMCSO employee, Why?
