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?

Anne Oliva’s Fundraiser for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. was a large well educated Black Man walking on the sidewalk southbound on El Camino Real in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Anne Oliva was a Millbrae City council member that day, and has been Silent all this time. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Bolanos said he was. He did Not Immediately assault Sheriff Deputy Wang after exiting his patrol vehicle like Sheriff Bolanos said he was.

Chinedu V. Okobi was San Mateo County’s George Floyd.

Anne Oliva

How can anybody support Law Enforcement in San Mateo County that Lies to the Public? Ask Anne Oliva

No mention of being tased 7 times and the weight of 6 bodies on top of Chinedu Okobi, O.C. spray to face. Okobi was dead on El Camino in Millbrae the day. Bolanos knew all of this when he issued this Release.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos leaves out one name. CSO Joseph Gonzales the 6th Sheriff Employee Involved. Why?

It’s not surprising that San Mateo County Community Leaders support this Dishonest behavior. The question is Why?

Welcome to San Mateo County

San Mateo County 165 yrs Legacy of Corruption.

SMC President of Supervisors David Canepa

Today Wednesday, May 12, 2021 3:00 PM There is a Webiner

The origin of the county is absolutely fascinating. It was like the Wild West with corrupt politicians and criminal gangs from San Francisco jockeying to control the Peninsula.

Webinar on SMC Corruption

Ballot box stuffing, voter intimidation and the politicians from San Francisco, in league with criminal gangs, who attempted to take over the county before it could be organized in an orderly fashion in 1856.

The results were predictable. Out of a total population of 2,500, 1,700 votes were counted. Gang members became sheriff, county clerk, county attorney, assessor and treasurer along with picking up one of the three supervisorial seats. They had a strange hold on the infant county.

Sounds just like today, Just follow the former San Mateo County Sheriff Juan P. Lopez criminal case that is speeding through the court system 6.5 years and counting. He made the mistake of running for Sheriff in 2014.

The Juan P. Lopez case should be compared to the Zain Jaffer of Hillsborough founder of Vungle case, start to finish in 8 months. Vungle was sold to Blackstone

Ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos what actions he took when in 2010 the brave female Sheriff Deputy reported the Gross Misconduct at San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office involving top management and Deputies sharing Porn Images and a Violent Rape Video on the County’s Computers in the 400 County Center Building while at work.

That involved 45 of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Finest Men.

Gross Misconduct at SMCSO

Gross Misconduct at SMCSO

Why was/is the Sam Trans Fraud Investigation not available for the public to read?

False Press/News releases on Errol Chang, Yanira Serrano Garcia, Chinedu V. Okobi and Sandra Harmon Homicides by Law Enforcement.

You get the picture.

SMC Voters can Kill two Birds with one stone in 2022. Bolanos and Silberman

By Michael G. Stogner

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

San Mateo County Voters can elect Mark Melville as Sheriff in 2022 and several things will change for the better the first day he is in office. These two gentleman will be removed from involvement of the Sheriff’s Office.

He has promised to release the Axon Log Records involving the May 5, 2020 Homicide by Law Enforcement of Sandra Lee Harmon. Currently there is only one person who is obstructing those records being made public. That person is San Mateo Counsel Attorney David Silberman. Why are those records important, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos told the world that Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera, He is the Deputy who fired 11 shots at Ms. Harmon including while she was unarmed with her hands above her head with her back towards the deputy. Ms. Harmon received 3 FATAL SHOTS to her back. Has Sheriff Carlos Bolanos ever lied to the residents of San Mateo County before of course he has too many times to mention here. The release of the Axon Log Records would VERIFY Sheriff Bolanos’ statement “Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera” Who would object to that except David Silberman, Why?

I recently asked Candidate Mark Melville for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, When he is elected Sheriff will he be replacing David Silberman as the attorney for the Sheriff’s Office? His short answer was Absolutely.

Michael,
My short answer to your question is, absolutely.  I know County Counsel is in place to “Protect” the County.  I don’t believe the Sheriff’s Office is being well represented by Mr. Silberman.  But then again, I have no idea what information he is being fed by Sheriff Bolanos.  I believe in 100% transparency.  If you are telling the truth, there is nothing to hide. You owe it to all the constituents of the County to properly identify the situation / incident and you tell everyone what it is you are going to do to rectify it.  And, I might add you do it in a timely manner..!!
Mark——  

I can not think of a more impactful vote then the next Election for Sheriff of San Mateo County 2022.

You put in one good human being at the top and everything changes. Imagine that.

x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez in Court Tomorrow.

By Michael G. Stogner

Tuesday, 5/11/2021 Time 9:00 AM: To Listen Call 1-425-650-1381 Code 425463

Defendant Juan Pablo Lopez Jury Trial Day 6 of Motions, Judge Leland Davis III, Courtroom 2H 

Hon. Judge Joseph Scott has been out of the Courtroom on a Medical Emergency since April 1, 2021.

Judge Davis should have an update in the morning.

A little background I call this the San Mateo County District Attorney Supervisor of the Inspectors William Massey case. Remember back to 2014 Sheriff Deputy Juan Lopez decided to offer the residents a choice for Sheriff in 2014.

William Massey did not like that idea and contacted the Employer of Juan’s finance and told him to Fire her. He refused do it so of course William Massey contacted him again with a more forceful demand to fire her.

DDA Kimberly Perrotti doesn’t want William Massey on the witness stand, I don’t blame her.

Anyhow it’s been 6.5 years, there is more than one way to destroy a person, when the D.A. Office is used as a weapon, False Charges like the Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to an inmate. What happened to those charges? You would think your D.A. shouldn’t falsely charge Who’s going to know, or Who’s going to care?

What did the DSA do for Deputy Lopez? Nothing That’s strange.

Happy San Mateo County Day.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC Supervisor President David Canepa

For the last 20 years Iv’e been asking the Supervisors to Make San Mateo County Safer. Make sure the Sheriff and PIO issue honest and accurate Press/News Releases when an In Custody Homicide by Law Enforcement happens. October 3, 2018, Chinedu V. Okobi and May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon are just two recent examples. When Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lies about a Critical Incident and more specifically about the person, the human being killed by Law Enforcement, I think that is a bad thing. President David Canepa doesn’t.

Last month on April 7, 2021 Roger Allen was killed by somebody in Daly City that we know for sure. The Daly City Police Department put out an alert. Here is what it said:

·**POLICE ACTIVITY** on the 700 block of Niantic Avenue near Westlake Avenue. Please avoid the area. There is NO threat to the public. We will provide an update later. Thank you.

No mention that Roger Allen was shot and killed, and the entire incident from start to finish meaning his body was transported by ambulance from the Crime Scene in 16 minutes, according to DCPD and SMCDA. That’s Fast.

At the April 20, 2021 Board of Supervisor meeting during public comment at the 8 minute mark in the video of the meeting I asked the entire Board to make a public Statement supporting the Release of Names of the Daly City Police Officers involved and to Support Transparency. They all chose Not to do that.

Video of BOS Meeting 4/20/2021

This is whats Important to President David Canepa and the Supervisors of San Mateo County, Todays meeting.

Presentation of a proclamation designating May 12, 2021 as Happy San Mateo County Day, marking the 165th birthday of the County.

Daly City, Fire City Manager Shawnna Maltbie and Assistant City Manager Stephen Stolte for starters.

By Michael G. Stogner

City Manager Shawanna Maltbie

I say this based on my personal experience of dealing with Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester in trying to get to the truth of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. Those two in my opinion did everything possible to obstruct that goal. I even recommended the City Council file a lawsuit against the Sheriff, District Attorney and County Counsel to release the AXON LOG RECORDS, they chose not to. Half Moon Bay City Council was very disturbed by the Homicide and wanted answers, and even went so far as to contact the Attorney General to Criminally Investigate the Sheriff, District Attorney Investigators and the Homicide. Again the City Managers intervened in the creation of the watered down wording of that letter.

One of the main differences I see between the Murder of Roger Allen and Sandra Lee Harmon is Daly City Mayor and the Council Members are fine with the Murder of another Black man in San Mateo County. Just like Millbrae was with Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by six Sheriff Employees. That was not the case in Half Moon Bay ALL Council Members were very upset and they said so.

Everybody knows the names of the 4 Daly City Police Officers should have been made public on April 7, 2021 the same day Roger Allen was killed. That is Transparency. Who is responsible for the behavior of the Daly City Police Chief? If it’s not the City Manager, and it’s not the Mayor, that leaves the silent City Council.

What did San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy (30 year Police Officer) say? Nothing

What did the Board of Supervisor’s say about Roger Allen’s Homicide by DCPD? Nothing

Mark D. Melville candidate for Sheriff of San Mateo County 2022 said “The police department should be conducting their own investigation to ensure all department directives were followed in handling said incident.”  “There is no reason for the PD to withhold the names of all personnel involved in said incident.”  

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told me,

“There are four officers involved in the Daly City shooting.  It is the responsibility of the police chief to disclose the officers’ names, with the proviso that my office will disclose the names at the time of announcing the decision in the case.  So at least for now that inquiry goes to Chief Patrick Hensley at DCPD.”

“Only one officer fired his weapon and he is on administrative leave. “

Than You, Colin Kaepernick.

I recently revisited the 2016 postgame interview when I was first asked about not standing during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” One of the reporters inquired about the reasoning behind my dissent. “There’s a lot of things that need to change,” I replied. “One specifically is police brutality. There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. Cops are getting paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards.”

The unnamed Daly City Police Officer who killed Roger Allen is on paid leave. City Managers, Mayors and City Council are responsible.

The Attorney General of the State of California should by Investigating Roger Allen’s Homicide. Everybody knows that.

Why both privacy and public safety matter with license plate reader data.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Carlos Bolanos

As the sheriff of San Mateo County, I am dedicated to protecting public safety and the privacy of our residents. In response to a recent opinion article on automated license plate reader (ALPR) technology, I wanted to provide our county’s residents with the facts about the technology and how the data is used, shared and retained by law enforcement.California law enforcement agencies are required to have and post ALPR usage and privacy policies to ensure that the collection, use, maintenance, sharing and dissemination of the information is consistent with respect for individuals’ privacy and civil liberties.Law enforcement agencies use ALPR technology to automate manual processes that help identify stolen vehicles, vehicles used by wanted suspects, vehicles used by registered sex offenders, locating missing persons and, more importantly, to investigate criminal activity more efficiently. ALPR technology takes photos of license plates in public view and runs the scanned images through a list of plates sought by law enforcement. The system collects the photo of the vehicle, license plate number and the location data. The system does not collect personal identifying information, such as birth dates, names or criminal history. My office’s ALPR data is retained for a maximum of one year unless the information is from an ALPR that has been deployed within an area wherein the local government has requested a shorter retention period.Our data is not shared with unvetted third-party organizations. Only law enforcement personnel with a need and right to know the information may have access to the data. On the topic of ALPR data sharing and immigration enforcement, we do not share any ALPR data with “ICE to track undocumented immigrants, who have committed no offense other than trying to make a life for themselves in California without documentation,” as stated in the guest perspective “Why license plate privacy matters” authored by state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, in the April 7 edition of the Daily Journal. ALPR databases in California may not be accessed for the sole purpose of immigration enforcement as required by the California Values Act. Misuse of data by law enforcement personnel may be cause for administrative, civil and criminal penalties. Currently, Senate Bill 210 seeks to limit the retention of ALPR records to 24 hours. This would not improve privacy, but it would limit our ability to investigate violent crimes, serial criminal activity and any other crime that takes more than 24 hours to identify suspects, locate witnesses and locate victims. If the bill were passed into law, it would reduce or eliminate our ability to solve some of our most serious criminal offenses. In one example of the use of ALPR data, a suspect in Daly City exposed himself as he attempted to grab a 12-year-old female victim, who was fortunately able to escape the assault. The victim provided Daly City Police Department with a description of the suspect and his vehicle. After reviewing thousands of ALPR images, they found a match. The system was then used to locate the vehicle in San Francisco. The suspect was ultimately arrested in San Francisco for the assault on the child and for being in violation his sex offender registration. Under SB 210, the evidence that led to the identification and arrest of the suspect would have been destroyed before investigators had the opportunity to review the images.In another example, a robbery occurred at a shopping center in the city of San Mateo and witnesses provided San Mateo Police Department with the suspects’ license plate number. The car was registered in Madera, California. Historical ALPR records provided information that the vehicle had been parked multiple times in Redwood City at the same location. Redwood City police responded to the vehicle’s historical parking location and found the car with the suspects inside. San Mateo police transported the victim to the location in Redwood City, where the suspects were positively identified, and the stolen property was recovered. Historical ALPR data quickly located suspects that had no fear of harming the public and brought them to justice. Under SB 210, the historical ALPR data would have been destroyed and law enforcement would have been looking for suspects 150 miles away.I am deeply committed to public safety and the protection of privacy. I want the public to know that historical ALPR data helps us to focus our limited resources to solve crimes and save lives. I also wanted to clear up any misunderstanding regarding how we use this invaluable law enforcement tool in our community, while protecting privacy. Please visit our website to learn more about our ALPR policy and how we serve our community with pride, commitment, integrity, compassion and innovation.Carlos Bolanos is the San Mateo County sheriff.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’ Opinion Piece above was sent to the San Mateo Daily Journal he chose not to publish it on the Sherif’s Office Website.

SMCSO Website

Some Residents of San Mateo County know that Carlos G. Bolanos was illegally appointed to the position of Sheriff on July 12, 2016 by the Supervisors of San Mateo County. It was not on the Agenda , Supervisor Don Horsley who was asked to recuse himself from that issue because his son is employed by the Sheriff’s Office lead the appointment through.

It’s telling that Sheriff Bolanos uses a minor female sexual assault victim as an example of why ALPR are great.

In one example of the use of ALPR data, a suspect in Daly City exposed himself as he attempted to grab a 12-year-old female victim, who was fortunately able to escape the assault. When on April 21, 2007 Carlos Bolanos was Detained in Las Vegas during the FBI Sting “Operation Dollhouse” He was caught inside the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street where a minor female was the victim of Human Trafficking of Sex Slaves.

San Mateo County Sheriff Vehicle involved in the Death of a CHP Traffic stop suspect.

By Michael G. Stogner

Last night around 10:30 PM April 6, 2021 the CHP made a traffic stop in the Southbound lanes of Highway 101 just south of Millbrae Ave. The deceased exited his vehicle and before could be arrested and placed in the CHP vehicle he ran across the 4 southbound lanes and crossed over the divide and was struck and killed by the San Mateo County Sheriff SUV driven by Sgt. Andy Ward who was traveling northbound 101 in the fast lane.

The deceased was a 30 something year old male not identified yet.

It’s not clear yet wether he was handcuffed when he ran?

No mention of this on Sheriff’s Website.
