San Carlos New Police Chief SMCSO Captain Kristina Bell. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

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?

May 28, 2018 Article D.V Lt Kristina Bell

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?

Sheriff Carlos Bolanos Releases some Booking Photos.

By Michael G. Stogner

I first reported that Redwood City Police Officers Arrested San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino for DUI right after he left the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA Bar and crashed a Jeep into a tree.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino Arrested

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his PIO refused to provide the Booking photo. Several requests were made.

Adam Alberti Editor of ClimateRWC Important story with Booking Photos

It has a really cool picture of a Sheriff Patrol Vehicle and 2 Booking Photos. Why were they released and not Sgt. Lou Aquino’s?

Google San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino Arrested for DUI and see how many of the print media reported it and what dates their articles came out.

All Booking Photos should be available to the media and public.

If Redwood City Council and Staff were serious about Police Reform.

By Michael G. Stogner

They would have already sent their individual e-mails to Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair supporting the September 15, 2020 Unanimous vote by the City of Half Moon Bay Council to refer the May 5, 2020 Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by Sheriff Deputies, requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorneys Investigation.

The Public is also welcome to e-mail Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020, The Eblovi Investigation Presentation at the 27:30 mark in video clearly identifies 3 Spent Shell Casings and 2 Bullet Holes that were omitted from SMC Sheriff, District Attorney Official Reports. The 3 Spent Shell Casings were then moved (Tampering with Evidence) to a location that supported the story provided to the Public by the Sheriff, District Attorney, and supported by County Counsel. There was a Shootout Ms. Harmon fired first both Deputies were fearful for their lives they knew she was going to kill them etc.

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020

Redwood City Leaders would have already made sure the their Police Department did NOT maintain two separate Arrests Logs which they have been aware of for many years.

RWC Police Logs 2 sets

They would also make sure their Police Department does NOT Violate San Mateo County’s Domestic Violence Protocol. Or their own for that matter.

SMCSO Lt. Kristina Bell 911 D.V. Call

James MaGee 17.5 hour D.V. Swat standoff

San Mateo County Residents should compare the James MaGee case with the Pacifica killing of Errol Chang by the Swat Team who got tired of waiting after a couple of hours. Errol was going nowhere he was located in a tiny home, he was a threat to nobody. Errol Chang R.I.P. was not a former Redwood City Police Officer, that is one big difference.

One thing everyone can do at this moment is contact the Attorney General’s Office and express your support for an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Death of Sandra L. Harmon, the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office for Criminal Conduct. Tampering with Evidence and request the AXON LOG RECORDS of the Entire Event. There were 14 Spent Shell Casings recovered NOT 11 that Steve Wagstaffe repeatedly discussed with the Public during the September 15, 2020 Zoom meeting above.

All San Mateo County Elected Official should have already sent their e-mails. E-mail Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair (Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov)

If they haven’t the residents should ask them, WHY?

San Mateo County Sheriff Office Booking Photo Audit.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Office released the Booking photo of Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez the day he was arrested which is exactly what the Sheriff Office is expected to do. Booking Photos belong to the Public.

Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez was Booked into jail, fingerprinted and photographed. He was charged with Smuggling a Cell-Phone and Drugs into Maguire Jail where he worked and he gave them to a Hells Angel Gang Member according to the Sheriff and District Attorney. That was over 5 years ago, There was never any evidence that those allegations were true or accurate. That is Outrageous Government Conduct, and Prosecutorial Misconduct.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino was arrested for DUI September 14, 2019 @ 11:30 PM by the Redwood City Police Department on Broadway near the Deputy Sheriff Association building which has a bar in it. He refused both Blood and Breath test which according to DMV website is a Suspension of Drivers License for a 1 year period. The officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV.

It’s not clear that Redwood City Police Officer’s took his Drivers License away from him or not at this time.

What is clear is that the Sheriff’s Office has refused to provide the Booking Photo.

The Supervisors of San Mateo County are the Oversight for the Residents.

Was Sheriff Sergeant Aquino Under-Charged and given Special treatment?

    See Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade do release the Booking photos of some people arrested in San Mateo County.
    They both are still refusing to release the Booking photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino who was arrested September 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department for DUI and refusing both Breath and Blood tests.
    Could you please ask both of them to explain why?
    Thank You

I’m still waiting.

The next Court Date for Sheriff Sergeant Aquino was April 6, 2020 but you can take that off of your calendar The D.A’s Office, Joshua Bentley and the Judge have quietly no reporters completed this DUI case this Wednesday.

Redwood City Police Officer Shawn Nimau Arrested for Child Porn.

By Michael G, Stogner

Redwood City Police Officer Shawn Nimau was arrested at his home in San Carlos on Tuesday March 10, 2020, He was indicted by Federal Authorities for possession of child pornography including minors under the age of 12. Officer Nimua pleaded not guilty to charges of child pornography and criminal forfeiture, which were filed by The United States Attorney’s Office.

He is a former Lake County, California, Sheriff Deputy. His years of police service at Redwood City (5) and previous service (2013 to 2015) at Belmont Police Department.

San Mateo County Residents will recall back in 2013 it was the Federal Authorities that arrested and prosecuted San Mateo County Probation Chief.

Statement from Redwood City Police Chief Dan Mulholland as of March 10, 2020:

“The City is aware of the federal criminal investigation and is fully cooperating with federal authorities. The allegations in the federal investigation, if proven to be true, are intolerable and in no way reflect the moral principles and professional standards of the City of Redwood City and its Police Department. Since this is an ongoing investigation, no further comment will be offered.  Questions regarding the federal criminal investigation should be directed to Mr. Abraham Simmons, Public Affairs Officer, United States Attorney’s Office at (415) 436-7264.”

Next Court Date is March 31, 2020

SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI Case Next Court Date April 6, 2020

IMG_1207

By Michael G. Stogner

March 2, 2020 Court date results next court date is April 6, 2020.

As you can see this is not his Booking Photo, for some unknown reason Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Rosemerry Blankswade the Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer have refused to provide it or even respond to my several requests.

On October 1, 2019 San Mateo County News.com was the first News & Information Service to report his arrest September 14, 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department at 11:30 PM near the DSA Building on Broadway Ave. He crashed a vehicle into a tree with a RWCPD Officer right behind him. He was to belligerent to qualify for First Chance in Burlingame but RWCPD did him a Big Favor by taking him there anyway. Easier to hide the arrest if he was accepted there. The Staff refused to accept him and RWCPD drove him to Maguire Jail in Redwood City where he was supposedly BOOKED for DUI and Refusing both Blood and Breath Tests, which is a loss of Drivers License for those who don’t matter.

Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino retained Attorney Josh Bentley (AKA The Fixer) before any criminal charges were filed. That is always the best way to do it.

Sergeant Aquino did not appear at his last Court Date and most likely he will not appear at the next one.

I sent this story to all the San Mateo County Newspapers, The only paper to publish a story was the Palo Alto Daily Post October 25, 2019 24 days later.

Corruption in San Mateo County is nothing new, I think most residents know it exists and they are just thankful it hasn’t affected them personally. They don’t think there is anything they can do about it. So they remain Silent and allow it, this case is a perfect example.

Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos think he doesn’t have to release the Booking Photo?

Alex C. Hill R.I.P. Pedestrian struck by RWCPD Patrol Car September 18, 2019

By Michael G. Stogner

Alex Camron Hill 25 was struck by an out of control police car driven by Officer Angela Wittman responding to a call according to the Redwood City Department. He was reported to be in critical condition from that day. His identity has now been confirmed and he passed away October 2, 2019. My understanding is that his family has been involved and have requested privacy, which I understand completely.

Hello Rosemerry,
Could you please provide me with that photo or an explanation as to why the Sheriff’s Office does not think they need to.
Can you confirm his Driver’s License has been suspended for refusing the chemical test?
Is he on Administrative Leave or is he on his normal duty?
Thank You

San Mateo County News.com

Update: 10/24/2019 Congratulations to the Palo Alto Daily Post for their Front Page Story on Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino’s DUI Arrest on September 14, 2019. That is 23 days after the SMCN.com article. They are the only one of 7 Print Media in San Mateo County to inform the public. The San Mateo Daily Journal placed it on the Website version I asked Jon Mays if he published it in print copy he has not responded. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemary Blankswade refuse to even respond to my request for his Booking Photo.

Update 10/21/2019 There is no blood alcohol result because he refused to submit to a chemical test as required by law. This means for the ordinary resident your Drivers License is suspended for 1 year.

Update: 10/17/2019 Sheriff Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry refuse to even respond to my e-mail request for Booking Photo. Why? It’s public information.

Update: 10/02/2019 9:40PM The court appearance date is October 23, 2019

I know when you read the date below you are going to think this is old News and you are correct. I will say that I am the first News Media to inform the public about it, this is an example of a Those Who Matter case. Special Treatment, What the public doesn’t know won’t hurt them etc. No statement from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, No statement and even more important No Charges by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Why?

Steve Wagstaffe informed me this morning 10/02/2019 that his office has not received the case from Redwood City Police Department and that would explain why No Charges if it were true, so I sent RWCP an e-mail. Gary Kirk responded RCPD filed the case with the DA’s Office on September 23rd. On September 27th, we received a request for additional information for prosecution from the issuing DA. You may want to call them back to clarify the information they provided. The DA’s case number is 0811082.

September 14, 2019 The Redwood City Police Department arrested San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino for DUI last week after he crashed a car (not his) the car belonged to San Mateo County Sheriff Lieutenant Victoria A. O’Brian.  Location of arrest was Broadway/Arguello St, which just happens to be where the DSA building is located. The arresting Officers transported him to First Chance in Burlingame where he was refused acceptance reason being he was to “Belligerent”. He was than transported to Maguire Jail where he was booked. He had attended a retirement celebration at the Deputy Sheriff Association (DSA) Building on Broadway Street Redwood City, prior to being arrested. So much for “Friends don’t let Friends Drive Drunk.” or “Let me call an UBER, Lyft or a Cab for you.” Better yet “I’ll drive you home.”

His attorney is Josh Bentley. You might ask why do you need an attorney if No Criminal charges are filed? Who called Mr. Bentley and When?

Redwood City Police did respond to my inquiry of the DUI Arrest of Sergeant Lou Aquino and confirmed it. Thank you RWCPD.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has refused to provide me with the Booking photo. He has remained Silent on Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquinos’ arrest. Here is what he was saying just two weeks before the arrest.

“Labor Day should be a time for friends and family to come together to enjoy the last days of summer,” said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. “We need commitment from our community members that they’ll keep the streets free of drunk drivers so that everyone can have a safe holiday. This is a campaign to get the message out that drunk driving is illegal and it takes lives. Help us put an end to this senseless behavior,” he said. 

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and NHTSA are reminding citizens of the many resources available to get them home safely. “Drunk driving is not acceptable behavior,” said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. “It is essential to plan a sober ride home before you ever leave for the party. That’s why, during the Labor Day holiday, we will make zero exceptions for drunk driving. There are just no excuses,” he said.
