Portola Valley Zoom Meeting tonight.

By Michael G. Stogner

What has changed since Yanira Serrano Garcia was Killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him getting out of his patrol vehicle. After he shot and killed her he was found with the knife in his hand. That is Tampering with Evidence. That was a non emergency medical call.

Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd

What has changed since Six not Five San Mateo County Sheriff Employees killed Chinedu V. Okobi, No 911 call, No crime had been committed by Okobi. What happened or didn’t happen during the nine minutes after Chinedu Okobi was handcuffed and sat up on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California was a crime. The video provided by SMCDA Office on March 1, 2019 had Captions “Check his pulse” etc the reality is his pulse was Never checked by the Six not Five Sheriff Employees.

What has changed since Sandra L. Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies May 5, 2020 on Main Street Half Moon Bay. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe told the public there was a Shootout and Sandra Harmon fired First. During the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020 at the 27:30 Mark the Eblovi Investigation Presentation about 9 minutes Identified 3 Spent Shell Casing and 2 Bullet holes. The three Shell casings were moved. The moving and relocating 3 shell casings and 2 Bullet holes were ignored by Wagstaffe, That is Tampering with Evidence, It also changes the Entire story that Sheriff Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe promoted.

The Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 to have The Attorney General of California to conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon, The Sheriff’s Office, and the District Attorney’s Office Investigation. That is what changed.

Half Moon Bay asks A.G. to Conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation.

By Michael G. Stogner

That in it’s self is Historical for any City in San Mateo County, to Question Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s Version of events in the Shooting Death a Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California.

September 28, 2020 Letter to The Honorable Xavier Becerra and Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair.

I’m just going to talk about Bullet Point 1 and 4

#1 The first deputy turned off his body camera in violation of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office policy.

The City was asked to Identify the Deputy so the public would know who the City was talking about. They chose not to.

Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe have told the world that Sheriff Deputy Dominguez turned off his Body Worn Camera BWC. To this day that is all that it is. The WORD of the Sheriff and District Attorney. There is NO EVIDENCE provided (AXON LOG RECORDS) to prove that statement to be TRUE. As a matter of Fact, the San Mateo County Counsel has done everything possible to make sure the AXON LOG RECORDS do not get released to the PUBLIC. Just ask John Ullom.

#4 Although the Deputies have said that they fired at Ms. Harmon form some distance away from her, certain pistol shell casing were found very near Ms. Harmon’s body. In addition there were inconsistencies in the location of casings recovered at the scene.

You wouldn’t know from reading Bullet point #4 that the subject was Tampering with Evidence at a Crime Scene. Specifically the moving of and placing 3 Pistol Shell Casings from one location to another.

This Tampering with Evidence at a Crime scene is kind of a Big Deal.

The 3 Pistol Shell Casings caused 2 Bullet Holes that was never mentioned in the Official reports. This alone changes the ENTIRE OFFICIAL REPORT.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Does release BWC Video and Audio under 24 Hours.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Just Not to the Public.

I have been recommending for years that Law Enforcement provide the Unedited Body Worn Camera, and MAV Dash Camera Video and Audio within the first 24 Hours. It turns out Sheriff Bolanos does release it, the question is to whom?

Update: 8:44 AM That person has been identified as Jamie Draper of the District Attorney’s Office.

In the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay California, San Mateo County Sheriff Sgt. Jon Sebring authorized Someone to access the Evidence.com a data site owned by AXON Inc. The same company that manufactures the devices Law Enforcement uses, Tasers, BWC, MAV Video and Remote Microphone etc.

How do I know this?

Involved Deputy John Baba – BWC Analysis 

On May 6, 2020 I received an Email via Evidence.com sent by San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Jon Sebring granting me access to the uploaded Body Worn Camera (BWC) and Mobile Audio Video (MAV) footage from the Officer Involved Critical Incident (OICI) on May 5, 2020 in the City of Half Moon Bay. 

I located the file for the BWC footage for Involved Deputy John Baba, which I downloaded from Evidence.com. From prior experience and in speaking with Sergeant Sebring, I know that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office currently utilizes the Axon 2 Body Worn Camera (BWC) which records video at 29.98 fps. I uploaded this video file into a video processing software known as VideoMach version 5.15.1 where I was able to mark the “in” and “out” points of the portion of the video which specifically covered the entirety of the incident and was able to remove the non- pertinent portions without altering the original video. I then added overlays which included a timer in the upper left of the video frame, the title “Deputy John Baba – BWC” at the top center of the video frame and absolute frame numbers (AFNs) in the upper right corner of the video frame. Each of these overlays were placed in positions to not interfere with the activity occurring in each video frame. I then finalized the video and saved this new version under the file name “Baba BWC with AFN and timecode”. I also utilized VideoMach to decompile the finished video into 17,619 individual frames to be utilized in this report. 

So there are a couple of Questions here, Who’s is the Author of this report? I have asked San Mateo County District Attorney Senior Inspector Rick Decker that exact question yesterday, He is getting back to me.

The second Question is Why is the Sheriff’s Office providing this data in less than 24 hours to somebody who has the Authority to Edit and add CAPTIONS to promote a False Story.

The third Question, Since the District Attorney’s Office was Investigating this Homicide case, shouldn’t they have controlled the Data?

Since the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting September 15, 2020, after hearing the Eblovi Presentation by 3 speakers at the 27:30 mark, every person attending that meeting especially the City Managers, City Attorney, the Five Councilmembers, and SMC District Attorney all knew the evidence provided showed 3 shell casings were deliberately moved, That’s Evidence Tampering, 2 bullet strikes in a location that only the Eblovi Investigators even bothered to look.

Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired First was the conclusion of the Eblovi Investigation. Everyone in that meeting knew it at that moment. I was shocked I had been working on the Sandra L. Harmon case since May 5, 2020 I never saw those 3 shell casings before even though they were right there. I have gone back and reviewed several videos and photos provided by the Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office, and I can confirm the 3 shells can be seen behind Sandra L. Harmon as she is being fired at while she was Unarmed which means they were Fired First just like the Eblovi Investion reported.

That means the entire story provided to the public is False.

Thank You San Mateo Daily Journal. Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

By, Michael G. Stogner

Just because Somebody says something is true does not mean that it is.

The same is true for Captions on a Video released 40 days later.

At -9:06 you will see Deputy Dominguez Body Worn Camera working perfectly well great Resolution and Audio.

-5:11 Caption says “Deputy Dominguez Attempted contact at the Motorhome for potential witnesses.” Why is he looking for more witnesses? It goes on to say, “But instead encountered Ms. Harmon.”

-4:59 Caption: With the fast moving situation with incoming fire, Deputy Dominguez did not activate his Body Worn Camera.

The caption wording “With Incoming Fire.” Implys as fact that Sandra Harmon fired first.

“After Discharging his Service Weapon Ms. Harmon dropped the Shotgun.” That would be before Deputy Baba gets out of his car.

So Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer and several others were involved in producing this Video in the San Mateo Daily Journal Article. Here it is.

SMDJ Article

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not include the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held on September 15, 2020 by ZOOM.

In this video you will see the the first 3 public speakers presenting the Oblovi Investigation at the 27:15 mark clearly providing evidence that came from the SMC Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, it shows Tampering with Evidence 3 shell casings. a Bullet found in the side of a building, They say Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired three shots at Sandra Harmon FIRST.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe does not address the Tampering with Evidence issue, the bullet found that none of the SMC Crime Scene staff found. or that Deputy Dominguez fired First. He simple deflected and said shell casing get moved around kicked etc all the time.

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not mention that fact. I am thankful the SMDJ has finally produced a story where the public can make comments on they used to have a Community Forum for the residents to communicate with each other.

The AXON Log Records have all the data the public needs, you don’t need to rely on Sheriff Bolanos to say something on a video. To this day and for the last 5 months we only have Words and Captions that Sheriff Deputy turned off his Body Worn Camera. The AXON Log Records have been requested multiple times by HMB Resident John Ullom, and myself. The San Mateo County Counsel and the D.A.’s is refusing to provide them even though Steve Wagstaffe told the Council he has No Objection. The FIVE HMB City Council Members should have the City Attorney make the request of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos personally. Forget the SMC Counsel. This investigation is a closed matter as far as the District Attorney Office is concerned.

Video September 15, 2020 HMB Special Meeting

Please remember, Words and Captions are not Evidence,

AXON Log Records lets get them, for the family of Sandra Harmon and all of San Mateo Residents.

Evidence vs. Words/Captions.

By Michael G. Stogner

September 15, 2020 Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 in favor of contacting the Attorney General of the State of California to request an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon In-Custody Death by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the Zoom meeting and explained his findings that the Deputies behavior was lawful.

Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

The public and especially elected officials want to believe Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankeswade, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, and several Attorneys at the SMC County Counsel Office. The idea that they would deliberately mislead the public is just to much for the average citizen/resident to deal with.

I would offer the x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case (6 years this November) as a perfect example of what they are capable of doing.

Last night during the public comment time members of the public were able to communicate what they have discovered with their very limited resources. Here are just a few of the take aways.

There is no Evidence of a Shootout.

There is no Evidence the District Attorneys Office has that Sandra L. Harmon fired the Shotgun at all.

Not one Shotgun Pellet was recovered from the Crime Scene the night of May 5, 2020. Thats with over 30 people at the crime scene that night. No damage to the Patrol Vehicle just feet away, or damage anywhere for that matter.

There is no Evidence (yet) that Sheriff Deputy Dominguez turned off his AXON Body Worn Camera. Simply words and captions that he did. The AXON Log File which to this day has not been made available to the public.

Congratulations to the entire Half Moon Bay City Council for last nights vote. This is a Great first step in Oversight of Law Enforcement in San Mateo County. I was Grateful to hear Yanira Serrano-Garcia’s name mentioned last night her case and Sandra Harmon case have many similarities of misleading and false statements by Law Enforcement.

I would recommend the City Council of Millbrae do the same for the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. It’s not to late. Look at what they didn’t do for 9 minutes after they sat him up on El Camino Real.

Half Moon Bay Mayor Adam Eisen fails to act after being misled by Law Enforcement.

By Michael G. Stogner

Adam Eisen

Adam Eisen the Mayor of Half Moon Bay should have already suspended or demanded the suspension of Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, for firing 5 shots at close range at Sandra L. Harmon an unarmed civilian with her hands up above her head. May 5, 2020 She was shot 8 times 3 shots to the back were fatal. She died at the scene. Since May 5, 2020 Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade, San Mateo County District Attorney Office and San Mateo County Counsel have all misled the Mayor and the Public as to what really happened at 845 Main Street in HMB that night.

San Mateo County could use more elected officials like Mayor Lovely Warren.

Mayor Eison should have already followed the lead of ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren.

ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren suspended 7 police officers in the Daniel Reil Prude Homicide, who said she was misled for months about the circumstances of the fatal encounter.. and she was taking the action against the advice of attorneys.

September 15, 2020 the City of Half Moon Bay is having its meeting and San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe will be talking about his 12 page letter to Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos where he found no crime had occurred so no charges against the two Sheriff Deputies involved.

So basically City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy Manager Matthew Chidester decided to meet with Steve Wagstaffe to discuss my 2 emails to Bob Nesbit recommending he contact the Attorney General or the D.O.J. to have them conduct an investigation into the Homicide by SMC Sheriff Employees of Sandra L. Harmon.

The meeting will be on Zoom and the Public is invited to ask District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe questions.

Law Enforcement said there was a Shoot Out and Sandra L. Harmon fired first. She had a Shotgun, GSR test did not confirm she fired the Shotgun. Nobody saw her fire the shotgun. Shotgun was found with two spent shells nobody smelled the shotgun. I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade how many Shotgun Pellets were recovered from the scene they have refused to answer my question.

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Carlos Bolanos, Public Information Officer Mon, Aug 31 at 10:41 AM

Hello Sheriff Bolanos and PIO Blankswade,
Now that the Investigation is complete by the District Attorney’s Office 
Can you tell me the total number of Shotgun Pellets that were recovered on May 5, 2020 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay.

Thank You
Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com

Remember the ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren was misled for months about the circumstances of the fatal encounter.. and she was taking the action against the advice of attorneys.

San Mateo County Sheriff S.A.L. xExecutive Director Barbara Bonilla Embezzlement Investigation is still ongoing.

By. Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

During the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held September 1, 2020, San Mateo County Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez gave his annual report to the Council. Part of his report included the Sheriff Activities League and all the efforts his Deputies had accomplished and how many children and families were impacted. After his presentation Councilman Harvey Rarback asked probably the most important question of the entire meeting. He asked Captain Saul Lopez if he could comment on the SAL financial situation?

San Mateo County Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez

That situation would be the DOJ Embezzlement and Laundering Investigation of Barbara Bonilla that has been going on for a long time. I was the only reporter to write about it on February 28, 2020 and at that time I could only report that Barbara Bonilla was escorted out of her office and was on administrative leave. Since that time we know she has quit the SMC Sheriff’s Office, which I still don’t know why, has been removed from the State & National PAL Organizations. To this day she has not been charged with any crime. I now know thanks to Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez that that Investigation by the Department of Justice is ongoing and he informed the council he was unable to comment on the subject.

My question to the Half Moon Bay City Council and the City Manager is this, What was the first date that Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez informed you that the Top Executive for the San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League was removed from her office and there is an Investigation ongoing. Was it before my article February 28, 2020? Did he ever report it to you?

The meeting also pointed out exactly how our system works, SAL interacts with children teaching them important life lessons and when one of the adults gets caught, the children learn how the system really works, the adults keep quiet, nobody talks about it. The entire council should put this subject on the agenda. Ask Captain Saul Lopez what did he know and when did he know it?

Half Moon Bay Beaches OPEN Labor Day Weekend.

By Michael G. Stogner

Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 last night to keep the Beaches in Half Moon Bay Open while Monterey County, Santa Cruz County and the City of Pacifica have decided to Close Beaches and Parking Lots.

There is a Worldwide PANDEMIC, No Cure, No Treatment, No Vaccine but that has never been a concern for San Mateo County Leadership. They have consistently been dedicated to Staying off of the States Watchlist, or Getting Off of the States Watchlist. That might be why they have made so many changes to the Data Base, None of it matches.

Back to the Beaches of Half Moon Bay you can’t blame the elected officials in this case, so many moving parts and they don’t get paid for this. The City Manager, Assistant Manager, Sheriff, Chief of Police they do, the Chief who by the way said he would make some calls to see if he could get some extra staff to enforce the closure of Beaches if they voted to close. Think about that, He didn’t say Of Course I will get the extra staff I need to enforce your decision. This is San Mateo County, now known as Silicon Valley and the Police Chief says its going to be tough to enforce it. All five council members were OK with his response.

Even from a simple Math point of view, This is a very bad idea. Half Moon Bay and the SMC Coast experience Gridlock on normal weekends, watch what happens now. This is an invitation to the world the Party is in Half Moon Bay this Labor Day Weekend.

Sandra L. Harmon Death by Sheriff Deputy a Homicide.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Harmon

San Mateo County Coroner’s Office ruled the manner of Death a Homicide.

Sandra L. Harmon was placed in custody (Handcuffed) after she was shot 8 times, 3 Fatal shots to the Back.

Now that the truth has finally surfaced in San Mateo County and it always does one of the main remaining questions is How many people were involved in the cover up.

I have asked the City Manager of Half Moon Bay Bob Nesbit twice to request a state or federal investigation of the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon who was shot at 14 times by two San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. I will say right up front that Sheriff Deputy Baba did everything right that night. Sheriff Deputy Dominguez on the other hand fired 11 rounds at Sandra L. Harmon and at least 5 of those rounds were fired at her while she was Unarmed and her hands were above her Head. In order to fire 11 rounds Deputy Dominguez had to reload his Service pistol.

To this day the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office has never provided any evidence that Sandra L. Harmon fired any shots from her Shotgun. I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemary Balnkswade to tell me how many Shotgun Pellets were recovered from the Homicide scene on that night May 5, 2020. They told the world there was a Shootout that was started by Harmon, that should be pretty simple to prove and it could have been provided to the public within 24 hours. That never happened.

This is the second Sheriff’s Office in-custody Homicide under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos. October 3, 2018 Moorehouse Graduate and Father Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Coroner ruled the Manner of Death to be a Homicide.

Last Friday afternoon San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe quietly (no press conference) provided Sheriff Bolanos a 12 page letter explaining how Fearful both Deputies were of being Killed by Sandra Harmon, therefore they acted lawfully case closed.

One Huge question is Why did Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fire at Unarmed Sandra Harmon fatally striking her in the back?

The Family and the residents of San Mateo County deserve to know the truth. How many people were involve in the coverup.

Coroners Report Complete for Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sandra Harmon

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.
