Tony Serra to SMC Hon. Judge Mark Forcum. “Targeting” Deputy Juan P. Lopez

serraTony

“Targeting Juan P. Lopez” “Bad Faith” “Misuse of a Search Warrant.” “Using it as an Investigative Tool.” “You can’t use a Search Warrant for that.” “Therein lies the Bad Faith.”

October 17, 2018 Honorable Judge Mark Forcum thanked Tony Serra for his comments and ruled against him. He ruled that now SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando did have probable cause to obtain the Search Warrant. He ignored the obvious (Perjury) lying to Hon. Judge George Miriam by then SMCSO Detective Andrew Armando.

Lt. Andrew Armando has not been investigated or charged by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office. Why?

They have know known of these allegations for almost 4 years. May 1, 2018 Tony Serra and Maria Belyi filed this motion, which clearly alleges perjury.

“The most suspicious call”  Lt. Andrew Armando made this call himself. That didn’t bother the Honorable Judge Mark Forcum one bit.

Lopez Filing May 1, 2018

November 15, 2018 is the next Court Date for a Franks Hearing where finally SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando will be on the witness stand under oath.

I have been reporting about the “Targeting” to cause financial harm to Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and anyone close to him for almost 4 years now. It was refreshing to hear his attorney mention that in court yesterday. One example is the motion above which Judge Mark Forcum has personally continued at least 4 times. That means Juan’s attorneys had to drive down from San Francisco 4 times wait for the case to be called to have Forcum say it’s continued. Attorney Stuart Hanlon Juan’s first law firm told a reporter his career could be impacted for discussing Juan’s case in the interview. Nobody asked, What the Hell did Stuart Hanlon mean? Think about it. He was just telling the truth. Attorneys can and do get blacklisted in San Mateo County Courts.

Why is this one motion so important to San Mateo County Officials? It proves that San Mateo County Sheriff Detectives and San Mateo County District Attorney Inspectors commit crimes to obtain Search Warrants like the 80 that were issued in the Sunny Day Murder cases alone. This one motion also shows that the Judges don’t care.

A recent DA Steve Wagstaffe quote: “I still believe that one of the key components of a good criminal justice system is faith that judges do the right thing,” 

With Audits the residents don’t need to rely on faith.

SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando is a Brady Officer

San Mateo County DDA Ben Blumenthal is prosecuting Jody Williams. Just when you thought “Operation Dollhouse”was yesterday’s News.

SMCDA prosecutor Benjamin Germain Blumenthal is handling one of the most important criminal cases in San Mateo County History. Honorable Judge Robert Foiles issued the arrest warrant August 13, 2018 for failure to appear in court to face charges by some unknown person. In order to fail to appear one would have to receive an invitation, not just send a letter to an address that’s no longer used with no signature of receipt required. Unless the intention was to get the warrant on the record in the first place which causes harm to Jody Williams.

Illegally appointed and recently elected but not sworn in yet Sheriff Carlos Bolanos is going to hate this criminal case. He has been refusing to answer any questions about his detainment and being transported to LVMPD that night of April 21, 2007 in Las Vegas. He has admitted the obvious (he was detained) but refuses to admit to being transported. Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf who was the President of the DSA that night says they were both transported to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department holding cell.

Jody Williams who was there that night confirms UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos was Transported from 3474 Eldon St. just as SMCSO Deputy Heinz Pushendorf has been saying.

Jody Williams was the first person to report that the 24 women and a minor did NOT arrive at the Salvation Army facility for 72 hour protection as was required.

Jody Williams was the person that caused the raid that night that caught SMC Sheriff Greg Munks and UnderSheriff in FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse.

The voters of SMC will remember this last election that Sheriff Candidate Mark Melville told all editors and reporters that “Carlos Bolanos is a Liar.”

Back to this huge criminal case, it is a single count Misdemeanor practicing law without a license.

09/13/2018 Arraignment
Judicial Officer Foiles, Robert D
Hearing Time 8:30 AM

10/02/2018 Order to seal police report pursuant to PC 964 / local rule
Comment9.8 filed
10/02/2018 Police Report ordered sealed per PC 964

What they are calling the Police Report is really the San Mateo County District Attorney Investigative report. There was no other police agency involved. You will also see the Declaration in support of the Criminal Complaint filed ….has been SEALED. Why?

Remember this is a Misdemeanor.

It is common for a DDA to lie to a judge in San Mateo County, just look at the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case it’s consistent from the very beginning. Next court date October 17, 20018 SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando hopefully on the witness stand.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has a new Standard of Practice. I recently assisted a single mother of two file a criminal complaint against her ex a SMCSO Deputy for filing a false Instrument with the Family Law Court a PC115A violation. Rick Decker asked the mother to take a polygraph test, she jumped at the offer and passed. This was pretty funny she is not the person who committed a crime.

I hope the District Attorney’s has had the Unknown Person take a Polygraph test.

To recap: A notice to appear not served, an arrest warrant issued, no idea who the complaint party is, and no idea of what the criminal complaint is it’s SEALED.

Update: Hon. Judge Gerald J. Buchwald signed a Search Warrant prepared by Inspector Jamie Draper the date was July 12, 2018, and it was subject to an order delaying notification for up to 90 days. That is why the case records don’t have that secret information.

DDA Ben Blumenthal refuses to answer questions about his case.

Why I started San Mateo County News

Why I started http://www.sanmateocountynews.com. To inform the residents of important stories that affect the average citizen who lives in the County. To eliminate Prosecutorial Misconduct, Law Enforcement Misconduct. I didn’t want to be in the News and Information business, or to get scoops on big stories. Here is an example I shared this information with all Medias covering SMC, with the hope that some of the reporters/editors would cover the James (Jim) McGee (a former Redwood City Police Officer and member of the SWAT TEAM himself) Domestic Violence Arrest after a 17 hour standoff with San Mateo County Sheriff Office Swat TEAM on August 9, 2018.

I live in Monterey County now, I attended the Court Sept. 27, 2018. None of the people below did. Welcome to San Mateo County.

Few reports against police upheld, You can interchange Judges, District Attorneys,Prosecutors,CPS,Probation Officials & Those Who Matter.

 

This is a very good article, Thank You LATIMES,

My recommendation is to stop reporting privately and before you report a Corrupt San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy and the alleged crimes his has committed against his children, his ex wife, and the Court (photos to CPS and filed with the family law court), The purpose to harm the mother, First of all you would be Stupid to report this crime to San Mateo County Sheriff Office under the leadership of Carlos Bolanos. He has a history of protecting Corrupt Deputies. SMCSO Lt. Andrew Armando is a current example. So before you report to the A.G. or the Feds you must cover your bases and give the District Attorney’s Office a chance to prove that they are opposed to a Sheriff Deputy filing false documents to CPS and the Court. You would also hope they would acknowledge the obvious conflict of Interest the current girlfriend of the Deputy works for the DA’s Office. After you go twice to report the criminal acts of (your ex) the SMC Sheriff Deputy, The DA finally takes the complaint they hate that you force them to do what they have sworn an Oath to do. Don’t be surprised when they recommend that YOU take a polygraph test and you agree to it and pass with flying colors. What did that have to do with the Deputy committing Felonies you might ask? Nothing, but if the DA was more interested in attacking the single mother/victim then prosecuting the Sheriff Deputy. Now after passing that test you would hope the DA invited the SMC Sheriff Deputy to take the same polygraph test, they choose not to and closed the criminal investigation. This lack of action only emboldens the dishonest Sheriff Deputy to once again report child abuse to the Redwood City Police Department where he has several personal friends.

San Mateo County Residents can thank the entire District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Office for this.

Few reports against police upheld

Across California, complaints of officer misconduct are often rejected and inquiries kept from public view.

By James Queally

Angry that she had been falsely accused of a drug crime, Tatiana Lopez filed a complaint against a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who had arrested her on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine.

But when Lopez met with a sheriff’s lieutenant to discuss her accusation, he urged her to drop her complaint, she said.

After a preliminary investigation, the Sheriff’s Department ruled the deputy had done nothing wrong, without giving her any explanation.

It would take years of legal battles before a judge exonerated Lopez and a new internal investigation led the department to fire the deputy for lying about her arrest.

Lopez is one of nearly 200,000 members of the public who filed a complaint against California law enforcement officers in the last decade. Her initial complaint ended the way most did — with police rejecting it without saying why.

A Times analysis of complaint data reported to the California Department of Justice shows law enforcement agencies across the state upheld 8.4% of complaints filed by members of the public from 2008 to 2017.

In a state with some of the strictest police privacy laws in the country, those who make complaints against officers are entitled to learn little more than whether their allegations were found to be true or not. They are given no other explanation about how a final decision was reached, what was done to investigate their allegation or whether an officer was disciplined.

A bill that cleared the state Legislature last month would begin to address the issue by opening up records from internal investigations into shootings by police officers and other major force incidents, as well as cases where officers were found to have committed sexual assault or lied on duty. Gov. Jerry Brown has not said whether he will sign the measure, Senate Bill 1421.

But even if he does, records from the vast majority of internal affairs investigations would remain secret.

The Times’ analysis of complaint data found several of California’s largest police agencies sustain complaints at a lower rate than the state average, including the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles and Oakland police departments.

Police officials argue that a large number of the complaints they receive are frivolous, filed by people they have arrested or others who have an ax to grind. Some said the proliferation of body-worn cameras among California police agencies has helped disprove a larger number of allegations about interactions between police and the public.

In Los Angeles, police said the low rate of upheld complaints was due, in part, to the department’s commitment to accepting a wide array of allegations. The LAPD received 25,006 complaints from the public in the last decade, according to state records. Officials concluded there was evidence proving 1,360, about 5.4%.

“We take every single complaint on the planet,” said Josh Rubenstein, the LAPD’s chief spokesman. “When you open yourself up to that wide a spectrum, you are going to get a high number of complaints that are not legitimate.”

Cmdr. Michael Hyams, who heads the LAPD’s Internal Affairs division, said that by examining even the flimsiest of allegations, the department has proved it will heavily scrutinize its own officers. He noted there has been a dramatic drop in citizen complaints against LAPD officers. State records show the number fell by roughly 67% from 2008 to 2017.

At the Sheriff’s Department, internal investigators upheld only 69 of 15,661 complaints made by members of the public in the last decade, less than 1%, according to figures the agency reported to the state.

Nicole Nishida, a department spokeswoman, said the agency had under-reported the number of sustained complaints to the state. By the department’s own accounting, roughly 8% of all public complaints were upheld from 2004 to 2016, she said.

Peter Bibring, director of police practices for the American Civil Liberties Union of California, said that a low rate of sustained complaints does not necessarily mean a department is doing a poor job of policing itself, but the lack of information disclosed about those investigations is a significant problem.

“If their complaint is rejected, they are not told why,” he said. “That lack of transparency prevents the public from having any faith that the process is working.”

California law requires police departments to report the number of citizen complaints and the outcome to the state’s Department of Justice, but no agency audits the data to ensure the figures are accurate. A Justice Department spokeswoman said the agency is not required by law to conduct audits and hasn’t been given funding to do so. The state has gathered such data since 1981 and expanded the database to include information about racial profiling complaints in 2016.

Wayne Fisher, a former deputy attorney general in New Jersey who helped set the state’s guidelines for monitoring internal affairs complaints, said it was pointless to collect the data without checking to see whether some agencies are rejecting an abnormally large number of complaints and deserve more scrutiny.

“It acts as a pointer system to certain other areas that are screaming for analysis,” said Fisher, who now leads the Rutgers University Policing Institute.

Francine Tournour, a civilian watchdog for the Sacramento Police Department, agreed. Police departments need to be more open about their investigations into complaints about officers if they want the public to trust the results, she said.

“Part of this is customer service. Part of this is the relationship building,” she said. “If you have a process where people make complaints … and there’s no feeling that the complaint was taken seriously, you may see people stop bringing things to the department.”

In Sacramento, a city with a population of nearly 500,000, police reported only 18 complaints to the Department of Justice last year. Det. Eddie Macaulay, a department spokesman, said the agency did not include an additional 301 informal “inquiries,” a label used when department officials believe it was clear that an accusation did not amount to a violation of policy or crime. Had the department included those inquiries in its reporting to the state, its rate of sustained complaints would have plummeted.

Tournour, who heads the Sacramento Office of Public Safety Accountability, warned that handling such complaints informally can distort the history of documented allegations against individual officers — and a department as a whole.

In 2016, Jasmine Abuslin accused more than a dozen Oakland police officers of having sex with her, sometimes in exchange for information about prostitution raids. Her accusations — including that the misconduct began when she was underage — sparked a scandal that made national headlines and led to the firing and prosecution of several officers.

During her first contact with an internal affairs investigator, Abuslin said the police official seemed uninterested in her allegations.

“I felt like she wasn’t taking me seriously,” she said.

She also accused internal affairs investigators of threatening her for coming forward and of allowing her to delete text messages that could have proven her allegations.

Members of the public have filed 16,345 complaints of misconduct against Oakland police officers in the last decade, according to the state data. Only 1,073 of those complaints, roughly 6.5%, were sustained.

Oakland police did not respond to requests for comment.

In recent years, police agencies in California have had to report more details about citizen complaints and their outcomes, including how many they decided were false, involved conduct that did not amount to a policy violation or could not be proved or disproved. Last year, police agencies statewide concluded that 28% of complaints were false.

In Fresno, Chief Jerry Dyer said he has sought more thorough investigations and urged his internal affairs department to revisit investigations where it could not prove or disprove a misconduct allegation.

Fresno has one of the highest rates of sustained complaints among California’s largest cities. The department upheld 325 out of 1,332 citizen complaints in the last decade, roughly 24%, according to the state data. Last year, the agency reported it couldn’t prove or disprove less than 6% of complaints made by the public, compared with the statewide average of 25%.

The push for more conclusive results better serves the community, said Dyer, adding that he supports releasing more information about the way complaints are reviewed. The current process, which sees citizens simply receive a form letter announcing a complaint’s disposition, “raises a lot of concerns on the part of those voicing the complaint,” Dyer added, though he said he does not support making individual officer disciplinary records public.

For Lopez, the shortcomings of the internal investigation into her complaint about L.A. County sheriff’s deputies destroyed her trust in law enforcement.

The Downey woman was a college student with no criminal record in 2009 when three deputies trained their guns on her in a gas station parking lot. Deputy Francisco Enriquez alleged he found several bags of methamphetamine in his cruiser after she rode in its back seat. He said they fell out of her pocket.

Lopez’s attorney, Thomas Beck, later obtained sheriff’s radio transmissions proving Lopez was never in Enriquez’s car.

Lopez said the ordeal had a lasting effect.

John Ullom Questions Patrick Clancy attorney for Zainali Jaffer ex Vungle CEO.”Fingers in Anus” per e-mail.

San Mateo County resident John Ullom co-owner with his brother Dan of Citizen Access TV and a true Citizen Journalist has asked by e-mail this week.

What is the name of the drug/drugs that caused Mr. Zaffer to force his child’s face into his crotch while fingers were inserted into an anus?
 Whose fingers were inserted into who’s anus?
This might be the motive for Mr. Clancy getting the Preliminary Hearing Transcripts sealed this week.

Press Release July 23, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — Patrick Clancy, attorney for Zain Jaffer, co-founder and former CEO of video ad company Vungle, today thanked Stephen M. Wagstaffe, District Attorney for the County of San Mateo, for going out of his way to clarify that Mr. Jaffer is completely innocent of any form of sexual misconduct.

This e-mail is why John is asking these questions. E.M. is a reporter at the Palo Alto Daily Post.

Hi Emily,

Here is the description of the testimony by the instructor:

DEFENSE THEN CALLED MARTIN ROMUALDEZ, D’S JIU-JITSU INSTRUCTOR FOR 6 MTHS PRIOR TO INCIDENT, AND THEN CALLED OFC REY. MR. ROMUALDEZ TESTIFIED THAT WHAT HE OBSERVED ON THE BODY CAM FOOTAGES WAS THE DEF PERFORMING A JIU-JITSU MOVE THAT HE HAD BEEN TRAINED IN (ARM BAR/TRIANGLE). MR. ROMUALDEZ ADMITTED HOWEVER THAT IN THE NUMEROUS PRACTICE SESSIONS WHERE D AND HIS SON JOHN DOE WERE INVOLVED THAT D WAS NEVER NAKED, THAT IT DID NOT RESULT IN ANY SCREAMING ON THE PART OF JOHN DOE, THAT JOHN DOE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE IN PAIN, THAT JOHN DOE WAS NEVER INJURED OR TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL.

The Palo Alto Daily Post never published this information, Why? Didn’t they think this was a public safety issue.

Performance Audit conducted in accordance with auditing standards promulgated by the Comptroller General of the United States.

This is not a new idea former Town of Atherton Finance Director John Johns R.I.P. made this recommendation in 2010. It was a good recommendation then and is now.

With the Zain Jaffer x Vungle CEO case 7 felonies including oral copulation of a child and assault of a Hillsborough Police Officer simply disappearing from the legal process after a private meeting between the District Attorney’s Office and Mr. Jaffer’s attorneys.  DA Steve Wagstaffe believed he was guilty of these charges from day one for almost 8 months, right up until the private meeting at the District Attorney”s Office which included a presentation of the entire defense. That is what a trial is for.

Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti became the Judge and Jury in the Zain Jaffer case.

How many cases in the last 10 years has a Defense Team made a private presentation at the DA’s office?

How many of those presentations resulted in the District Attorney filing a motion to dismiss the entire case?

Judges are the last layer of Oversight for the People of California. When they see a suspicious or questionable motion from the District Attorney’s Office they should not only deny it, they should report it to the State Bar. This motion by Steve Wagstaffe and Karen Guidotti was both suspicious & questionable. Now we just have to find out Why?

Why did Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt grant the motion to dismiss? There already was a Preliminary Hearing that determined there was enough evidence for every charge to move forward. She could have denied the motion, Wagstaffe could have tested his evidence on the Grand Jury to get an indictment if he thought his case was weak. Instead he choose to dismiss the entire case and Judge Garratt assisted him in that effort.

Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time. To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by tomorrow.

My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.

For those readers who don’t know this e-mail was written to San Mateo County Sheriff and UnderSheriff days after they both were caught and detained as Customers of Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including at least one child. April 21, 2007 FBI Sting Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada.

The Matthew Graves (also 30 yr. old man) case should be looked at, He was sentenced to 34 years in prison, 4 of those years are for violating a Restraining Order. This should be compared to Mr. David Bohannon being arrested twice by the Menlo Park Police Department. The second time was for violating a Restraining Order, The exact same thing Matthew Graves got 4 years in prison for. The difference is Matthew Graves got charged, tried, convicted and sentenced. Mr. Bohannon no criminal case number filed, no court appearances, no trial, extracted from the legal process.
