Mark D. Melville for SMC Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.

Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.

Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.

Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.

I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.

I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.

One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff Office.”

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office” p.2

If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.

Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.

Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.

Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.

Google to Employees, You must be Vaccinated.

By Michael G. Stogner

October 18, 2021 is the target date for all Google employees to be back in the offices.

In a July 28, 2021 e-mail sent to more than 130,000 worldwide employees CEO Sundar Pichai announced that return to work date and disclosed that once offices are fully reopened, everyone working there will have to be vaccinated.

That announcement seems to be pretty straight forward and clear.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knows a Great thing when he hears about it.

Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

I’m talking about the City of South San Francisco and some of its Business owners last week providing FREE CATALYTIC CONVERTER ETCHING. This service was provided to the residents of SSF for serval days from several providers.

This was an excellent public service and a Great Message to thieves. Don’t Steal Catalytic Converters from SSF cars.

San Mateo Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his staff Know a Great Idea when they see or hear about it. They have set up a County wide program for this July 28, 2021 at a Jiffy Lube.

Video

This next Wednesday July 28, 2021 at Jiffy Lube in San Carlos located at 1030 El Camino Real. Appointments available as of this writing are just 2 out of 16. Here is the Appointment Link good luck.

Appointments

You would think a County with 766,000 residents would have more than one provider for 4 hours maybe the County Supervisors should talk to Sheriff Bolanos and come up with a County wide service to the residents of the County. I recommend they talk to the Government leaders of South San Francisco. Great Job.

The real San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi R.I.P.

Yesterday July 20, 2020, 21 months after Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Killed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi on El Camino Real in Millbrae/San Bruno The Supervisors discussed in Closed Session the progress of the two Civil Lawsuits that the relatives have brought against San Mateo County and a long list of Employees who were involved in the Misinformation aka Lying to the Residents of SMC about what actually occurred on October 3, 2018.

This happens every time Law Enforcement in San Mateo County kills a man or woman. The San Mateo County Media, San Mateo County Counsel, and San Mateo County Supervisors join in the character assassination of the DECEASED.

In Chinedu’s case everyone knows by now that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has No Plan in place on how to make a Pedestrian Stop. Thats right Chinedu Okobi was simply walking down the sidewalk while Black when Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang spotted him while he was traveling northbound in his patrol car. He activated his lights which activated his dashboard video camera which shows him making a U-turn.

Within 8 minutes Chinedu was Tased 7 times, struck with extended baton, Dogpiled by SIX SMC Employees and sprayed with O.C. spray in the face at close range while being handcuffed where he died. From that moment on San Mateo County started to promote the false story of “He was breathing and had a pulse when the Sheriff’s Office Employees turn him over to the AMR people.”

Nothing could be further from the Truth.

There is NO EVIDENCE that any of the Six Employees checked Chinedu Okobi’s pulse or provided ANY Life Saving measures after he was handcuffed and approximately 9:30 minutes passed before ARM people touched him.

How much Taxpayer Money has SMC Supervisors approved for this legal action? How much have they spent to date?

Today 9:00 AM U.S. Court for the 2 Civil cases

Melville, Corpus and Bolanos for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Now there are three individuals who have stated their intention to run for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

Mark Melville ran against Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018 and received 52,996 total votes. He has always said he will be running in 2022.

SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus has now announced her intention.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraiser in Millbrae last month.

Now if San Mateo County Residents can find a candidate to run for District Attorney against Steve Wagstaffe that would be a step in the right direction.

If you would like to listen you can call 1-206-279-9589 Code 599028 at 1:30 PM.

You may recall Barbara Bonilla was much more than just the Execute Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League when she was escorted out of her Office on February 10, 2020.

She was a:

San Mateo County Sheriff Employee

San Mateo County Parks & Recreation Committee, Commissioner

Redwood City Rotary Member

California PAL and National PAL Board Member.

How is the SMC Sheriff Activities League a 501 C?

What Has the SMC Sheriff Activities League done to make sure this NEVER happens again, since the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation by the State of California Attorney General and the San Mateo County Sheriff Office, which any reasonable person would know was an obvious Conflict of Interest.

Here is a short list of who knew about the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation.

Bill Nicolet, Assistant Sheriff Gregory Rothaus, Coastside Lutheran Church, Correctional Medical Group, Dani Gasparini & Alyn Beals, David Amann, Donald Hack, Greg Munks, Henry Gaw, Jeff Ira, Kiwoba Allaire, Lori & Eric Lochtefeld, Jim Hartnett & Rosanne Foust, Assistant Sheriff John Munsey, Maloney & Associates, Marshall Realty, Jonathan Shipman, Neil & Kate Layton,Pete Liebengood & Alicia Aguirre, Phillip Raiser, Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Steve Wagstaffe, Trisha Sanchez, Warren Slocum, Don Horsley. Adam Alberti.

San Mateo County News.com was the first News Media to write about Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave from Sheriff Activities League Headquarters in Redwood City.

February 28, 2020 Article

How is that possible? With all those people who had knowledge about Barbara Bonilla, that Not One of the SEVEN Print Media in San Mateo County wrote an article about it in January or February?

The California State Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting Barbara Bonilla, What have you heard from them about this case? How did they come up with these charges? Is Barbara Bonilla really the only person involved?

Joaquin Jimenez or Carlos G. Bolanos

By Michael G. Stogner

Half Moon Bay City Councilman Joaquin Jimenez
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

This is exactly why I say Joaquin Jimenez should run for District 3 Supervisor of San Mateo County in the next election.

Of course the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies would pull HMB Councilman Joaquin Jimenez over on his bicycle on Main Street. It’s more than racial profiling, It’s sending him a message, you might be an Elected Official in San Mateo but I am in charge of the Law Enforcement in your Hometown 24/7 so get used to it.

Bolanos said the deputy recognized Jimenez as a city councilman, Of Course he recognized him.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos knows that Joaquin is a threat to him, and is sending a message.

Every reasonable person in San Mateo County knows that Sheriff Bolanos is a Liar.

2007 Operation Dollhouse, He lied.

2010 Whistleblower complaint Gross Misconduct at SMCSO Porn and Violent Rape Video shared among top 45 Male employees. Results New Servers at the County.

2015 Pumpkin Festival SMCSO Gang Task Force assaulted Joaquin and threaten his career as a Juvenile Probation Officer with SMC. They followed through he no longer has that career.

He and other family members were stopped and photographed by Sheriff’s deputies during the 2015 Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival. At the time, then-Undersheriff Bolanos said the men were followed because some wore T-shirts that memorialized a gang member and that they were photographed because of what he said was a heated exchange between Jimenez and a security guard.

This is another example of Carlos Bolanos Lying, It was not a Security Guard, It was a Gang Task Force Sheriff Deputy.

2015 Half Moon Bay Resident Rachel A. Quintana arrested and Videoed by San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte, He Otte Lied under Oath in Judge Lisa Novak’s courtroom January 5, 2017. This arrested occurred right after she went to the Sheriff Sub Station to report harassment of her two brothers by Deputies. Judge Novak found Otte committed PERJURY Sheriff Bolanos gave him a retirement party.

2018 Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six SMCSO, Sheriff Bolanos omitted the sixth Employee Involved, CSO Joseph Gonzales, and lied in his Press Release about Chinedu running in and out of traffic and Immediately assaulting Deputy Wang when he exited his patrol vehicle.

2020 Half Moon Bay Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon by SMCSO Employees. Sheriff Bolanos Lied about the Shootout, Omitted the fact she was shot in the back three times, shot at while hands were above her head unarmed, and the moving of three spent shell casings, and two bullet holes located where there should be NONE. He provided the STORY of Body Worn Camera not being turned on and has refused to provide the Axon Log Records that would prove his statement to be true or false.

2021 Kaylan Freeman arrest and charged Rape of Girls, Sheriff Bolanos Lied in Press Release about when they first became aware of him. The Sheriff Office Served him a subpoena at the exact house in 2014 for the same type of crime.

“Racial profiling is happening,” Jimenez said. “Even when we ride our bicycles.”

“This is exactly what I’m talking about,” Jimenez said. “When people ask about coming forward, well, I’m coming forward. This is what happened to me. I was riding a bicycle like everyone does on Main Street. But I’m the one getting pulled over.”

Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbitt has had over a year to put in the Sheriff Officers Complaint Line that he claims he is so interested in providing to the residents. Bob Nesbitt is the Last Person on earth I would recommend to call with that type of complaint.

Carlos G. Bolanos is not only the Sheriff of San Mateo County he is also the Police Chief of Half Moon Bay.

When was the last bicycle stop conducted by SMCSO in Half Moon Bay?

East Palo Alto is having Emergency/Special Closed Meeting tonight at 5:30 PM

By Michael G. Stogner

No matter what it is called it is a Closed Session Meeting but that doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it before it starts.

Subject Matter is the Termination of the City Attorney

What caused this to be an Emergency later reduced to a Special Closed Session in the first place?

City Attorneys and City Managers serve at the pleasure of the City Council and can be terminated anytime.

If you would like to speak at this meeting the City is asking you to sign up in advance link below.

Emergency/Special Closed Session TONIGHT

As an example the City of Daly City should be having this conversation about Terminating their City Attorney and City Manager for the No Body Worn Camera’s and the Roger Allen Homicide by the Daly City Police Officers on April 7, 2021. They have refused to identify the Police Officer who killed Roger Allen, Why?

Update: May 20, 2021 4:15 PM

Thursday May 20, 2021                                         From: Ruben Abrica, resident and Vice Mayor

Regarding:  Open and Transparent Government versus Secret and Private abuse of power by officials

TO:  Residents of East Palo Alto:

Today, a rushed and imposed closed session meeting of the City Council is scheduled for 5:30 pm, with barely 24 hours notice to the public.  Before going into closed session, the public has the right to make comments or ask questions, including elected officials if they wish to inform and explain their views.

I, for one, will not be silent nor complicit in what I see as an attempt by three councilmembers to bypass our legal and ethical responsibilities to be open and honest with the public and protect the City from potential  liability, legal and financial.  I therefore want to comment and ask questions as part of the public process.

A. Emails by public officials in relation to city government are public not private

1.  In an email sent late Tuesday May 18 by Council Member Lopez and also representing Council Members Wallace-Jones and Gauthier there is a call for an emergency meeting of the City Council with the topic of

‘Termination –City Attorney’.   A second email is then sent cleaning up the first one stating that it’s a ‘special’ meeting and now omitting the reference to ‘Termination –City Attorney’.  If you notice the published agenda cites the vague and general category of  ‘Public employee Discipline/Dismissal/Release’ (Agenda Item 3.1)

2.  Whether a meeting is called by the Mayor, as is the normal procedure, or imposed by three members as is the case here, the matter should be approached with respect for the public to be notified with plenty of time so they may comment or ask questions about any potential major decisions.  For today, barely 24 hours notice was given and the purpose of the closed session is now hidden from the public.

3.  Did three council members already discuss privately the termination of the city attorney?

Did three council members already reach a decision?  Both would be a violation of the Brown Act

What is the ‘emergency’ alluded to and then backtracked?  What’s behind this power move?

B. Let’s not attack the messenger because the message makes officials uncomfortable 

1.  Why is the Office of the City Attorney being attacked and ambushed with such speed?

2.  Whenever city government personnel investigations are conducted as a result of complaints, and including investigations involving elected officials, the best practice has been to retain an independent investigator and not an employee of the city to perform timely investigations of personnel matters.  This is what the City Attorney has done and in my opinion correctly so.  And the City Manager as part of his job responsibilities is then expected to take action as deemed necessary.  I, as one of five people who supervise the City Manager expect him to bring timely closure on all personnel cases so as not expose the City to legal and/or financial liabilities.  The public’s money should never be put at risk by negligence or politicking.

3.  Why was council member Lopez  at the Tuesday May 18 meeting questioning the continuation of an independent personnel investigator as proposed by the City Attorney? (Item 3.8 of the agenda) 

C. Full Disclosure.  No Hiding.  No Cover Ups. Correct Mistakes, Serve the People 

1.  As a founding member of the City Government of East Palo Alto, I am, at this moment , remembering people not with us anymore who sacrificed so much so that our community could learn to exercise self-government and self-determination.  Let’s honor them by practicing honest and transparent government. 

2. This closed session meeting is a very troubling example of secrecy and underhanded tactics to avoid facing the public.  It’s an assault on our local institution of government , intended to democratically serve the people not the egos of politicians.  I, for one, will not participate in this farce of a ‘closed’ session.  There are real urgent needs of the community to be addressed instead of this destructive power game playing.

SAL “Building the bond between cops and kids.” A bad Idea.

Daly City Council and City Manager Shawnna Maltbie What are YOU doing? Roger Allen Homicide by DCPD.

Thank You Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for finally not Killing a man in San Carlos the other day. What brought your deputies to him in the first place? It seems like he knew his rights and your deputies finally did the right thing and left him alone. It’s a shame you chose not to do that before now.

NEWS RELEASE Incident Date and Time: April 30, 2021 @ 2:26 pm

Location: 500 block of Quarry Road, San Carlos Summary: Deputies Added ECIT Resources and Training has Positive Outcome in

Disengagement of Person in Crisis During Welfare Check.

On Friday, April 30, 2021, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 500 block of Quarry Road in San Carlos to conduct a welfare check on an individual who was reported as possibly experiencing a mental health crisis. While enroute, deputies learned the subject was also in possession of a knife. Deputies staged a safe distance away and made phone contact with several parties at the scene, including the individual’s social worker.

Deputies learned the individual did not make any threats, commit any crimes, and no one was being held against their will. The individual had no interest in speaking with his social worker
in person or with deputies on the phone. Approximately one hour after arriving on scene, deputies determined it was in everyone’s best interest that they disengage and leave the scene without forcing contact with the individual. Deputies followed-up with the individuals social worker the following day and learned the individual had stabilized and was no longer experiencing a mental health crisis.

This response highlights the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s Enhanced Crisis Intervention Training program (ECIT) and how our crisis response has aligned with recent law changes (California AB-392) as well as community expectations. Unless there is imminent danger or threats to others, deputies will conduct pre-assessments, gather as much information as possible, and form a plan for de-escalation prior to attempting contact with individual in crisis.

We understand the mere presence of uniformed deputies can escalate situations, and we will utilize time and distance whenever possible to assess the best course of action for each situation. In cases like this, by modifying our response and not making immediate contact to check the welfare of an individual in crisis, we maintain the option to disengage, which in some cases, provides the individual the opportunity to self-de-escalate.

In many cases where mental illness is involved, crisis communication and verbal de-escalation can prove to be challenging because their disability may affect their ability to understand or comply with commands from deputies. For this reason, disengagement in these cases is sometimes the best de- escalation option. Deputies can then refer the case to the Sheriff’s Office Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, who will then form a plan to contact the subject at a later time if appropriate, to assess for resources.
