David Canepa, How much has SMC Taxpayers paid to defend Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez?

By Michael G. Stogner

As a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 21 years, I have always recommended releasing the recording evidence unedited to the public within 24 hours.

On May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Homicide by Law Enforcement in Half Moon Bay was no different. I recommended the release of the UNEDITED Body Worn Camera Video to the public within 24 hours. Not one of the FIVE San Mateo County Supervisors did the same.

Supervisor David Canepa is now Fundraising and is a Candidate for Congress.

Here we are 22 months after the Homicide and San Mateo County Counsel files this: Answering Paragraph 3, Defendants admit that Defendant Deputy Dominguez failed to turn on his body worn camera immediately prior to the incident at issue.

Supervisor David Canepa, What is the EVIDENCE to support that statement? You should know what the evidence is that has your Attorneys making that statement. You have attended several Closed door sessions being briefed on this lawsuit.

Affirmative Defenses
Defendants have not yet completed discovery, propounded interrogatories, submitted requests for documents, or taken depositions. WHY? It’s simple release the AXON Log Records. They will confirm or prove false the statement just made by County Counsel.

San Mateo County and SMCSO were aware that Dominguez resigned from the San Mateo Police Department due to unsatisfactory performance in the field training program.

I ask the question again, How much Taxpayer money has been invested in the defense of SMC, City of Half Moon Bay and Deputy David Dominguez?

Once you answer that question, the next question is Why did you approve that?

It’s a Felony to file a False Instrument with the Court. PC115A

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba.

By Michael G. Stogner

In my opinion San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba did NOTHING WRONG in the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon in Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County, California on May 5, 2020.

U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria dismissed a claim against Deputy John Baba.

Judge Vince Chhabria also denied motions to dismiss from lawsuit the City of Half Moon Bay and San Mateo County.

Jan. 19, 2022 Judge Vince Chhabria wrote that it was plausible to believe Deputy David Dominguez, one of two officers to shoot the 56-year-old woman suffering from mental health issues, acted “with a purpose to harm unrelated to a legitimate law enforcement objective.” The judge noted that video evidence established that Dominguez shot Harmon in the back, while her hands were raised over her head, and that that shot was fatal. Source Half Moon Bay Review.

It should be noted the Video the Judge is referring to was produced by the San Mateo County Government at the highest level. It starred Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos which was strange. He never mentioned Sandra Lee Harmon was shot in the back while her hands were above her head.

Here is the Video released by the Sheriff’s Office
