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.
Thanks to LATIMES reporter Erica D. Smith
“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.
There was a Criminal Investigation of Embezzlement and Money Laundering that involved more people than just Barbara Bonilla.
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe recused his office because of the obvious Conflict of Interest. San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office took a different approach. San Mateo County Sheriff Lieutenant Michael Leishman was instrumental in the SO Investigating itself and steering the results to just one person, that was Barbara Bonilla.
Lt. Michael Leishman is back in the NEWS this last week, He led a small gang to Indiana to RAID a small business owner who makes the Batmobile. How many laws were broken and how many San Mateo County Employees were involved is this criminal act?
Holy Organized Crime and Corruption in San Mateo County Government exposed properly.
This is going to be good, Mark Racop is an honest hard working businessman in Indiana who makes the 1966 Batmobile.
He has a court appearance August 19, 2022 at 9:00AM The “Those Who Matter Gang” has made sure he has to appear in court in PERSON. That is just one of the many tools they have access too, the ability to destroy your finances.
The Gang thinks it’s funny to show up at your business in another State, send all your employees home, put you in handcuffs, transport you to the local Sheriff’s Office then release you and let you know you have been Criminally Charged in San Mateo County, California.
He has had his Bank Account Frozen by the San Mateo County Law Enforcement Gang.
He has had his Google Data searched by the San Mateo County Law Enforcement Gang.
I have recommended this case be DISMISSED ASAP, Just like the ZAIN JAFFER case was. You will remember Mr. Jaffer was arrested by the Hillsborough Police Department at 4:00AM for Attempted Murder of his 3 year old son and 6 or 7 other Felony charges. The entire Criminal Case was quietly dismissed after a Magical Meeting. People vs. Zainali Jaffer 17NF012415A
This criminal case against Mark Racop should have NEVER been filed in the first place. How many San Mateo County Elected Officials and Employees were involved? That is the story.
The Hotels in San Mateo County should be comping Mark Racop today if they haven’t tried already, he should plan to stay a couple of days and get to know the San Mateo County Residents, take a tour of the Town of Atherton, where this story begins.
Residents could meet Mark Racop at the airport when his plane arrives, Come to his court appearance at 400 County Center, Redwood City California, possibly a PARADE.
This one case demonstrates what I and many others have been reporting to the proper authorities for more than 22 years. This is a perfect example of Organized Crime in San Mateo County Government.
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos sent a 4 man TEAM of his finest Employees to Indiana recently. The TEAM was lead by Lt. Michael Leishman, It included Sergeant Sean Harper, Deputy Leddy, and Deputy Bradley P. Mulvihill. My question for the TEAM of 4, Did it ever cross your mind that this assignment was a TERRIBLE idea? Possibly even Criminal. I’ll bet if it didn’t cross your mind before you boarded your fligh, it has after ABC 7 I-TEAM Investigative Reporter Dan Noyes published his Video News Report about your adventure. As of last night after the story broke more then 2 MILLION Views and More than 10,000 COMMENTS.
San Mateo County Superior Court Judges, Is there any reason that Mark Racop of Indiana can not appear for his first court appearance on August 19, 2022 by ZOOM? What is the time estimate for this first appearance? Isn’t there still a PANDEMIC?
Lets not forget, Just because San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office say you committed a crime and charge you with a crime doesn’t mean that it is true.
Have the above mentioned agencies EVER Falsely charged any person before? Yes
Have the above mentioned agencies EVER Falsely charged a person simply to teach her/him a lesson about San Mateo County’s “Those Who Matter” Gang. Yes, Just ask ret. Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez
Are there any RED FLAGS about these Criminal Charges of a small business owner in Indiana?
San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the first RED FLAG.
San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Michael Leishman is the 2nd RED FLAG. Does anybody remember the San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League (SAL) Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation involving several people and Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars?
SMCSO Lt. Michael Leishman was instrumental in producing the desired outcome of that Criminal Investigation. A reasonable person would know that it is a CONFLICT of INTEREST for a San Mateo County Sheriff Employee to investigate his Boss and co-workers. Lt. Michael Leishman had no problem with it.
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?
June 7th’s election signaled a sea change for San Mateo County’s Sheriff’s Office, with challenger Christina Corpus ousting Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. The wake of this defeat has undoubtedly left Carlos Bolanos and his department appointees with a number of pressing decisions, upmost of which is what do I do now?
Undoubtedly, the number one question for Bolanos is will he follow his predecessor and attempt to go out on a lifetime paid medical disability, one in which he will receive an untaxed paycheck with medical benefits for life? When Carlos said to the press, going forward, he needed to speak to his family about his future, is that what he meant?
And if Carlos puts in a workman’s compensation claim, alleging such a disability, one qualifying him for lifetime pay, will the County question it, given the fact that he hadn’t said he couldn’t perform the duties and responsibilities of Sheriff, before losing the election? The County and its governing body, the Board of Supervisors, apparently hadn’t, in the case of Carlos’ predecessor, Sheriff Greg Munks, rubber stamping his exit……. but then again Munks hadn’t lost an election?
Will the board afford Carlos the same golden parachute, realizing the irony of his losing the election, should he allege such a disability? If the Board does, what message would it send to those county employees who have had legitimate claims which the County had contested and or denied? Better yet, what message would that send to county residents, the Board’s employer?
And given Carlos is a Carpetbagger, a person who was not a homegrown County employee and had merely gone from one law enforcement agency to another, accruing & building retirement options, versus his homegrown challenger, Christina Corpus, should the County entertain such a claim and sign off on it?
If Carlos attempts such an exit, shouldn’t that necessarily disqualify him from seeking any further public office? Perhaps not, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has ardently supported Bolanos, ever since he (Bolanos) had been detained by the FBI & Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, in 2007, at a human trafficking site, one where indentured sex slaves, to include a minor and the illicit drug ecstasy were being sold. If such embracing of bad behavior by District Attorney Wagstaffe is any indication of things to come then I’d say the citizens of San Mateo county are going to be financially on the hook for Carlos’ exit.
Steven Booker is also a Candidate for Supervisor of District Three
On May 28, 2022 at 2:00 AM the Belmont Police Department responded to a 911 call and ended up arresting Steven Booker, There was no mention of Mr. Booker refusing to take a breath test or blood test like SMC Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino did when he was arrested by RWCPD in 2019. Or Aldon Smith refusing both test when he was arrested (5th time) December 6, 2020 in Redwood City by the CHP. It looks like Steven Booker cooperated with the Police just like San Mateo County Superior Court Hon. Judge Joseph Scott did with the CHP when they arrested him for a DUI.
At this moment in time there are NO CHARGES filed by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. Steven Booker didn’t injure anybody.
As you might have noticed today is June 6, 2022 one day before the Election in San Mateo County. This is the only article San Mateo County News.com has published on this topic. The Palo Alto Daily Post has published two Front Page articles about this IMPORTANT subject with photos of Mr. Booker a good sized Black Man with the title ARRESTED & DUI. I couldn’t help but notice how many of the San Mateo County Newspapers did the same.
I believe in a Level Playing Field, I personally know many people who have been arrested and even pled guilty to a DUI and have gone right back to work. Look no further than Judge Joseph Scott as a local example.
Lets compare an alleged DUI case with Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos being Caught and Detained by the FBI Inside a small house where he was either there to have sex with one or more of the Sex Slaves including a Minor or there to sell 3,500 Ecstasy Tablets for $25,000. Or Lets see how important the San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League which for some reason is a 501 C Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation was to the Voters of San Mateo County. They couldn’t care less.
I can’t imagine why a DUI would make one bit of difference to a San Mateo County Voter.
A photo of a Good Sized Blackman with Dreadlocks now that might make a difference.
This is not Rocket science, if you think Investigating your own agency in an Embezzlement and Money Laundering Criminal Case is a BAD IDEA? I suggest you WRITE-IN Heinz Puschendorf for Sheriff 2022.
The other two thought it was a great idea to Investigate the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League in the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation. One of them was a lead investigator in that so called investigation.
Whoever donated money or endorsed the other two supports Investigating you own agency.
It’s a SIMPLE Question and the Government has not answered it for 58 days. Why?
It’ really a shame the 5 Supervisors of San Mateo County continue to refuse to do their job. But when you put it in perspective More than $10,000,000.00 of PPE being given to James Brown on or before January 13, 2022 is really nothing compared to what the 5 Supervisors did to San Mateo County Residents on April 21, 2007.
One of the Supervisors is a candidate for Congress, The Voters will decide, Supervisor David Canepa said on January 25, 2022 “I don’t think It’s a San Mateo County Issue.” I’m pretty sure it is.
Here is what I Hand Delivered on March 1, 2022 because the Supervisors refused to do their job.
