In late 2015 Rachel Amanda Quintana did what most of us hope we would have the courage to do. She went to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sub Station in Half Moon Bay to file an official complaint about Sheriff Deputies abusive interactions involving her two brothers. She should get the Best Sister Award if there is such an award.
What she got instead was arrested at her home a couple of days later. The ARRESTING party was lead by Sergeant Michael E. Otte, and included Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney and Deputy Jose M. Velasquez. 66.66% of the arresting party lied and made false statements.
San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Kostielney filed A supplemental report after the arrest in which he stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.”
What he was declaring was that Sergeant Micheal E. Otte did NOT Video the Arrest with his personal Cellphone which in fact was a lie and he knew it.
It’s one thing to lie in an Official Police Report It’s a whole different ball game to lie under oath on the Witness Stand in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom which is exactly what Sergeant Michael E. Otte did on January 5, 2017. Who was aware of the Perjury committed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant in a Superior Court in San Mateo County. The list is long, I won’t bother listing all but at the top was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Her Bailiff who should be acknowledged for doing what we all expect of our law enforcement employees.
We know what happened to Sergeant Michael E. Otte, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos gave him a Retirement Party.
How many more Brave Citizens/Residents of Half Moon Bay came forward to report abusive behavior by the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. The City Council should have a data base available to the public to protect the public.
Rachel Amanda Quintana paid the price, years in the criminal justice system, with all charges to be dismissed quietly.
Why would the City Manager Jeff Maltbie and the City Council think this is a good choice to lead the law enforcement of San Carlos by its vendor the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. They all know or should have known about the Special Treatment she received by the Redwood City Police Department when it received a 911 call for Domestic Violence at her Redwood City residence. No Arrest, No gun removed, No Police Report.
Any one of the City Leaders could have simply Googled her name Lt. Kristina Bell D.V. 911 and found out about that.
What is her position on Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos releasing the AXON LOG RECORDS in the Half Moon Bay Homicide by Sheriff Deputies of Sandra Lee Harmon on May 5, 2020. The Sheriff’s Office said there was a Shoot Out and Ms. Harmon fired first, There is no Evidence of that, There is Evidence of three Spent Shell casings being moved at the crime scene.
What was her position on the Sheriff’s Office issuing 2 False News Releases on October 3, 2018 on the Homicide of Chinedu V. Okobi by Sheriff Deputies and one Sheriff Employee.
What is her position on the Sheriff’s Office issuing a News Release December 4, 2020 stating: On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000. Checking with the Court Clerk on December 8, 2020 no record of her being arrested or in San Mateo County Jail on December 4, 2020. The DOJ Investigation was for Embezzlement and Laundering how did that turn into Grand theft?
What is her position on the Sheriff’s Office NOT RELEASING the Booking photo of Barbara Bonilla former Sheriff Activities League Executive Director, Former Sheriff Employee, and 2018 Campaign Manager for Sheriff Bolanos.
Why would Jeff Maltbie think this is a good fit for San Carlos?
I think think everyone understands the game of getting ahead in America. Get on the Special Elite TEAM, become one of “Those Who Matter” Special Treatment on a 911 Domestic Violence Call is about is about as Elite as you can get. San Mateo County Domestic Violence Protocol was Violated on that call. Many on the Those Who Matter team knew about it and kept their mouths shut.
Is this who the residents of San Carlos want to be in charge of their Law Enforcement Services?
What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.
Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.
In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.
The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.
They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.
They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.
The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.
Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.
San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.
David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?
Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.
The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.
Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.
After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.
I asked the only Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff in the 2022 Election a direct question about the Axon Log Records that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is refusing to make public in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide of May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.
Candidate Mark Melville’s answer:
I can assure you unequivalently, I will release said records…..There is absolutely no reason not to release the records….Transparency…!!!!

I’m sure most of the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents don’t know who John Ullom is or haven’t heard anything about him. If you have read anything about him by Mark Simon, Jon Mays Editor, or Jerry Lee Owner of the San Mateo Daily Journal. You might ask What did John Ullom do to them to cause such a dislike?
John Ullom is Good Human Being an American, He is the guy you want as your neighbor. San Mateo County Supervisors should give him the Citizen of the Decade Award if there is one. They won’t of course.
Sandra Lee Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California. She was shot at 14 times, her body was struck 8 times, 3 of the 8 shots were fatal, all 3 fatal shots were in her back. Ms. Harmon was shot at while her hands were above her head and her back was towards Deputy Dominguez. The unloaded shotgun was on the ground in plain view at that moment.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020. He stated several times that 11 shots were fired and 11 spent shell casings were recovered.
That’s Simply Impossible.14 Spent Shell Casings were Recovered.
This is where my favorite saying applies: Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.
Here is just one small example of what John Ullom has done as a CITIZEN.
Sandra Harmon Was Fatally Shot In Her Back While Her Hands Were Above Her Head And The good Old Boys Cover Up
Our District Attorney, Mr. Wagstaffe has offered a “guess” as to how Sandra Harmon received three fatal shots in her back.: — https://youtu.be/Vmij2TSFfR4
Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” is that Sandra was shot during the third volley of shots. Deputy Dominguez testified he thought he shot her during the second volley. Wagstaff ignores the Deputy’s testimony and the video obtained from another Deputy’s body cam.
In this short clip, you will see Sandra Harmon’s hands above her head and her back to the Deputy who is firing at her. You will see her gun hit the ground. The Deputy who shot her testified that was one of the reasons he thought he had shot Sandra Harmon during the second volley. You will also see at least one shot was fired after Sandra Harmon dropped her shotgun: — https://youtu.be/TT6zIH4PAYg
Here is the video that shows when Mr. Wagstaff “guesses” Sandra Harmon was fatally shot in the back by SMCSO Deputies. Warning, very disturbing: — https://youtu.be/lsk2oORWVH0
Question for SMC Coroner, Mr. Foucrault, do the entry wounds in Sandra Harmon’s back indicate anything about the trajectory of the bullets that hit her? Does the evidence show a near perpendicular trajectory as would be expected if Deputy Dominguez’s testimony is correct? Or was the angle of entry shallow as would be the case if Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” was correct? Do the wounds have abrasion collars that indicate the angle of entry? — https://what-when-how.com/forensic-sciences/evaluation-of-gunshot-wounds/
The body cam video from the Deputy who shot at Sandra Harmon while her hands were in the air and her back to him, is missing. The logs from his body cam are being withheld. No effort to understand how Sandra came to be shot in her back has been undertaken. This is WRONG. Sandra Harmon’s life mattered. And so do the lives of her family who deserve to know the truth.
At everybody on the BCC list. Nobody in charge, other than the City Council of Half Moon Bay, gives a damn about how Sandra Harmon came to be fatally shot in her back while her hands were above her head. The press is not going to investigate. The ACLU isn’t interested. BLM folks aren’t going to protest. The only hope of the truth being told…..is us.
Fatal shots in the back provoked the LA Coroner to ask for an independent analysis in the interests of transparency.
If any of you have ever reported a Criminal Complaint to the Attorney General’s Office for a person other than yourself, I salute you. I have in the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case involving Hacking of the California DMV Computer System. I can assure it is NOT EASY to do. As you can see by the title former Sheriff Deputy Lopez’s criminal case is still ongoing and next week will be the 6 year mark.
San Mateo County residents should AUDIT the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez 6 yr criminal case and Zain Jaffer less than 9 MONTH case.
Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

Thank You for your quick response, let me see if I can make this more clear. The State of California data base for DMV was hacked by someone and I believe that someone is from San Mateo County Law Enforcement. DMV doesn’t even know about this. I think DMV should be notified and if you won’t do it I will. The same thing happened with the Federal data base. Thank You Michael G. Stogner

Dear Mr. Stogner,
Thank you for your correspondence to the Office of the Attorney General regarding a complaint against a local law enforcement agency or employee. We appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention. If you would like to file a complaint against a law enforcement agency or officer, it is the Department of Justice general policy that local governments will be primarily responsible for citizen complaints against law enforcement agencies or employees of law enforcement agencies, and that appropriate local resources (e.g. sheriff or police department, district attorney, citizens review commission, and/or grand jury in the area of jurisdiction) be utilized for resolution of such complaints prior to a request for intervention by the Attorney General. The Attorney General will review citizen complaints against a law enforcement agency or its employees for possible investigation when substantive allegations of unlawful conduct are made and all appropriate local resources for redress have been exhausted. You should first direct your complaint to the local law enforcement agency. Every law enforcement agency in California is required to establish a procedure to investigate citizens’ complaints (Penal Code Section 832.5). A written description of the procedure is available from all law enforcement agencies. If a resolution of your complaint is not obtained through this procedure, you should write to the county district attorney and county grand jury in the county where the law enforcement agency is located. Most complaints against local law enforcement can be resolved by contacting the aforementioned agencies. If these agencies do not act on your complaint within a reasonable period of time, you may write to the Attorney General’s Office. Your correspondence should include specific information about misconduct that violates state law, the details of your efforts to resolve the complaint with the local authorities, copies of your complaint(s) to the local authorities and copies of their response(s). Correspondence that does not contain this information cannot be acted upon. Thank you again for contacting our office. We hope this information will be helpful to you. Sincerely,Victims’ Services Unit(ra)

August 4, 2014 DA Inspector Jordan Boyd demanded Deputy Juan Lopez surrender his DL, stating it was suspended, Deputy Lopez complied and was without a license until September 29, 2014. He hired an attorney who went to LA for a court appearance for him the Judge demanded that Deputy Lopez so up in person, he did and proved it was not his ticket. Also investigate who accessed the United States Post Office data base to communicate a false statement regarding a condo Deputy Lopez owns in Redwood City, Ca. Residential to Commerical to Credit Unions which effect borrowing ability. I believe this was done by someone in San Mateo County. Deputy Lopez is currently charged with 12 felony charges.
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.
Kevin Mullin did not attend or make a public comment at any of the many meetings the Board of Supervisors made available to the public to discuss, Excessive Use of Tasers, Excessive Use of Force, Failure to provide Medical Aid after killing Chinedu Okobi. He did not attend any of the many Concerned Citizens gatherings at the killing site in Millbrae/San Bruno.
Chinedu V. Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by Law Enforcement. Both of the Deaths were ruled a Homicide by the local Coroner. The Four Officers responsible for George Floyd’s Homicide were fired and Criminally Charged. The Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees who are responsible for Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide are all working and None of them have been criminally charged with anything.
Here is Kevin’s PR piece on voting. You will notice he can’t even mention George Floyd’s Name. “most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement.” That could be Hundreds of young Black/Brown Men around America.
I can say this as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years Kevin Mullin is the norm for Elected Officials in SMC.
I know of only one San Mateo County Elected Official that Publicly Questioned, was Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered. That should have been the Obvious question every single elected official should want the answer to.
Sabrina Brennan was that Elected Official. She attended meetings and gatherings.

Chinedu Valentine Okobi
America is confronting an unprecedented “trifecta” that is dominating our daily headlines: A COVID-19 pandemic, a deep recession and most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, illustrative of systemic racism and injustice that has spawned a season of multiracial protests and calls for needed social change. Yet, while the nation is reeling from these crises, duplicitous messaging is being deployed by the occupant of the Oval Office to actively undermine the results of this November’s election: that voting by mail can’t be trusted, that widespread voter fraud exists, and that mail balloting is designed specifically to elect his opponent: FALSE.
Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed ballots, in all 50 states, according to the Vote at Home Institute with only a handful of fraudulent votes cast. Election law expert and U.C. Irvine professor Richard L. Hasen notes, it is still more likely for an American to be struck by lightning than to commit mail-voting fraud. In addition, there is no evidence to suggest that voting by mail benefits any particular political party.
San Mateo County has shown that voting-by-mail works. My legislation to make San Mateo County an all-mail ballot pilot county demonstrated that the participating electorate more closely resembles the public at large in terms of its diversity and representation, with young people, and voters of color in particular more likely to cast ballots. Thanks to my colleague, Assemblyman Marc Berman’s legislation recently signed into law, this November’s election in California will be an all-mailed-ballot election. Every voter automatically will receive a ballot, postage paid, with community-level “vote centers” as back-up. Voting by mail is the most efficient and effective way to conduct an inclusive and participatory election.
So-called “red and blue” states alike have employed voting-by-mail, but the way states have approached elections administration varies greatly. Elections are fundamentally state and locally administered, and recent examples of mismanagement during primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia remind us of the challenges facing election administrators across the country. This is a highly charged political atmosphere with huge stakes on the line.
There is a growing recognition that the pandemic must force changes in how elections work, and better ensure more participation moving forward. Attempts to help fund elections with federal dollars have fallen woefully short of what is needed to ensure free and fair elections across America. Since the Bush-Gore contested election in 2000, the efficacy of voting mechanisms and machinery have taken center stage. More recently, we are seeing a coordinated misinformation campaign to attack the integrity of, and undermine the public’s faith in, our elections. False narratives abound, and voter suppression, which disproportionally disenfranchises communities of color, is real and we all suffer the consequences as a result.
While voting-by-mail works, it is not perfect. Signature-matching issues have led to ballots not being counted, a concern that is actively being addressed in California. One other legitimate drawback to voting at home is the time it takes local elections’ officials to count waves of mail ballots and certify the election. The current administration is preemptively trying to undermine faith in the eventual vote count and may try to exploit delays in vote tabulation to question the legitimacy of results, triggering a constitutional crisis. While the long wait for vote-by-mail results is not ideal, it’s in the interest of every vote being counted, which is fundamental to our democracy.
During this tense time when we need leaders who can calm, heal, and build faith, the president has used this period to further divide people and incite violence, all while callously attacking the basic underpinnings of our democracy, like faith in and respect for the work of journalists — essentially a broadside on the First Amendment. The work of journalists and the social media platforms themselves have never been more important in fact checking false claims and advertisements with false information.
Vote as if democracy itself, and its pillars like a free press, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, including the right of every citizen to vote, is on the ballot. Because it is.
Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, is speaker pro tempore of the California Assembly and represents San Mateo County’s 22nd Assembly District.
I asked San Mateo County Citizen Advocate Brent Turner for comment on Kevin Mullin Opinion Piece.
The VOTE BY MAIL act is innocuous to the degree that it reiterates voting by mail procedures. We have used absentee ballots for many years. What is NOT innocuous is the removal of polling places from communities of color. Though Mindy Romero and other experts have declined to state it clearly, the added travel distance to some of these community residents results in a veritable “poll tax ” and leads to further disenfranchisement, . Subjective signature disqualification also creates opportunity for disenfranchisement and was predicted by election experts
The bill originally emanated from the ” Colorado Model ” of elections and was promulgated by Colorado based vendor DOMINION The act is notorious not for what it mandates but what it ignores. The fact there is ZERO mention of the software used to tabulate the votes creates a severe point of misdirection to the layperson voter. This is unfortunate as the authors of the bill positioned it as a security measure when this is not the case. The authors were briefed extensively but chose to omit the work of the open source software security experts.
Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.
The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.
You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.
I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Dear Supervisors, I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened. Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018
“Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.” Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.
Thank You Michael G. Stogner
No need to read below just for reference. Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.
So just go it’s Free. This event should be Video Live Streamed and then put on YouTube for the residents to view later.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has personal knowledge of Human Trafficking of underaged Sex Slaves. Operation Dollhouse April 21, 2007, 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas Nevada. He was DETAINED as a customer. He is perfect to give the opening statement.
Please join us as the San Mateo County Human Trafficking Program hosts a public presentation at the City of San Mateo City Council Chambers. The presentation will include remarks by Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Human Trafficking Program Coordinator John Vanek, and Human Trafficking Advocacy Coordinator Pamela Estes.
The evening will include a brief history of the response to human trafficking in California and San Mateo County, the current goals of the Human Trafficking Program, a question and answer period, and will also highlight anti-trafficking efforts by other County and private organizations.
