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.

California COVID-19 Data Glitch Fixed.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Dashboard should be fully functional by Sunday night.

A technical glitch that has plagued the data system the state relies on to make decisions about reopening businesses and schools has been fixed but it could take up to 48 hours to get the numbers updated, California’s top health official said Friday.

California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly said that up to 300,000 records might have been backlogged — but not all of them are coronavirus cases and some may be duplicates. California reported 8,436 new confirmed cases Friday and surpassed 10,000 deaths from the coronavirus.

“We apologize. You deserve better, the governor demands better of us and we are committed to doing better,” Ghaly said.

County health officials say they’ve been flying blind, unable to conduct robust contact tracing or monitor health factors without timely information, especially at a time when parents are on edge about school plans.

Update: August 8, 2020 San Mateo County Website does not inform the residents that the Glitch has been corrected.

31 Costco Employees Positive for COVID-19 at 4 Silicon Valley locations.

By Michael G. Stogner

I asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy How many San Mateo County Costco Employees have tested positive? His response was “Michael I do not have that information.” That would be good for the Residents of SMC to know.

The cases were reported to the county by Costco after workers reported their diagnoses to the company. 

Where were they tested and by who?

The LATIMES reported today that 31 employees from four locations in Santa Clara County have tested positive for COVID-19.

The largest cluster of coronavirus cases among workers of the warehouse chain’s stores in Santa Clara County — Northern California’s most populous — is the Costco in Sunnyvale, where 13 cases were reported between July 23 and 26.

Cases were also reported at Costco locations in San Jose on Senter Road, southeast of downtown, with eight cases between July 17 and 22; Gilroy, with six cases between July 24 and 30; and Mountain View, with four cases between July 15 and 29.

San Mateo County Finally on State Watchlist.

By Michael G. Stogner

There was ZERO benefit for not being on this Watchlist since July 15, 2020. It’s difficult to find politicians who are not conflicted with the normal powers that get people elected. The Red Flags are simple to spot in a Pandemic when at first they are for protecting the residents and then the shift occurs to “We have got to get back to Work”

  • San Mateo County (has variance) is experiencing an elevated case rate that exceeds the State threshold. The County sees roots of community transmission related to social gatherings without sufficient physical distancing and wearing of facial coverings, as well as higher exposure for residents performing work that involves person-to-person contact and crowded housing conditions that make home isolation difficult.  Key actions to address the increase include: 1) expanding the case and contact investigation team that is following up on every COVID-19 positive case and related contacts to assure safe quarantine and isolation in order to break the chain of transmission; 2) developing strategies to strengthen support for those facing barriers in safely isolating or quarantining; 3) continuing to work with hospital system partners and our Medi-Cal managed care plan partner to monitor and understand hospitalizations, support effective pathways to appropriate levels of care and prepare for surge, 4) continuing to provide infection prevention expertise and specimen collection and test processing support to assist skilled nursing facilities and other congregate care facilities in protecting all residents and staff; 5) continuing to analyze the epidemiology of local spread to inform additional prevention strategies; 6) reinforcing community-wide messaging about the importance of key behaviors individuals can take (wearing facial coverings, maintaining physical distance, avoiding gatherings, washing hands and not touching one’s face) to keep themselves and the community safe; and 7) tailoring communication and outreach to the most impacted populations and communities to strengthen trust and engagement in case and contact investigation. The County continues to partner with cities, schools and community-based organizations and leaders to advocate for the longer-term policy changes that can prevent COVID-19 from exacerbating the burdens shouldered by the lowest income residents and populations of color.  San Mateo County also continues to work with the State’s decisions regarding reduced testing capacity at the Project Baseline sites and revised testing prioritization criteria that contribute to an increased positivity rate.  (Date added to CDM List: July 29, 2020) 

 

Congratulations and Stay Safe

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos should RESIGN.

By Michael G. Stogner

As some of you know I personally requested Carlos G. Bolanos resign from San Mateo County Law Enforcement on May 14, 2007 Certified Mail.

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has a bad habit of lying to the public. He has been doing that for a long, long time. San Mateo County Supervisors Warren Slocum, Don Horsley, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa and Carole Groom, County Counsel John Beiers, David Silberman, County Manager Mike Callagy are all fully aware of this and are not only fine with this fact but endorse this behavior.

Recently Sheriff Bolanos after 45 days released a video presentation of the Execution of Unarmed Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 7:25 PM at 845 Main Street Half Moon Bay, California. Sheriff Bolanos was quick to inform the public that she fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez who was taking cover behind his SUV Patrol Vehicle which was parked sideways right in front of her about 20 feet away. He reports to his sergeant that she fired two rounds which just happens to be all the shotgun holds which means it is now empty. Threat is diminished substantially. Adding to that threat downgrading is the fact that she no longer is in possession of the shotgun. At the 8:00 mark of the video provided to the pubic by Sheriff Bolanos you can hear Deputy Dominguez yell Put you hands up and see Unarmed Sandra Harmon with hers hands up and above head you can also hear FIVE shots being fired at her by 8:06 mark. Why?

Sheriff Bolanos’s Video

Sheriff Bolanos is a master at misinformation, he and most of the media focus on Sandra Harmon Jay Walking & Reaching for an Empty Gun instead. If that sounds familiar it should Chinedu Okobi killed by 6 Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. All violated their Oath refused to provide medical aide for more than 8 minutes and Lied about it.

San Mateo County Residents should ask Sheriff Bolanos What is your policy regarding a Deputy shooting at an Unarmed citizen? So far it is Kill Now Lie Later.

Sheriff Bolanos doesn’t mention it at all. He should RESIGN. Sheriff Bolanos tells us that Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Camera for the conversation and shooting of Sandra Harmon. I might point out Deputy Dominguez has not said that. Deputy Dominguez went by himself to the motorhome with no body camera on is the story Carlos Bolanos is pushing. Why would a reasonable person believe that?

The good news is even if that were true, it really doesn’t matter because the In-Car Camera /Audio System will have recorded his conversation and we will be able to clearly hear the Shotgun Blasts. A reasonable person would expect to see damage to the patrol car with 2 rounds fired at a Deputy taking cover behind it less than 20 feet away.

What did Sergeant James E. Goulart recommend? What was the plan if he encountered the woman with a Shotgun, why was he alone?

That is exactly what happened when Yanira Serrano-Garcia was killed by Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of exiting his patrol vehicle. He was alone and No Plan. That 911 call was a Non Emergency Medial assistance call.

Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018 there was NO 911 call.  No Plan

Julia Streeter for Supervisor of San Mateo County.

 By Michael G. Stogner

I’ve said for a long time if you just replace all five Supervisors with good Human-beings the County residents would benefit immediately. I realize there might need to be an age requirement wavier but I recommend Julia for Supervisor. She sent this letter to City of Foster City Manager.

Good evening Mr. Hall,

My name is Julia Streeter, and I am an independent girl scout Troop 96389. 

I am a 6th grader at Bowditch and I would like to organize a protest in Foster City focusing on black inequality. I’m inspired to do this because there are peaceful protests all around the bay area, but there has yet to be one in Foster City, and I think it would be a good idea to show support for black people in our community too.


I was thinking the route would start at City Hall and go around the block down Foster City Blvd towards Beach Park turning towards Shell, and then turning at the back entrance of the library and ending at the Police Department. This route would stay on the sidewalk and avoid crossing any major intersections. I don’t know how many people will be there but without advertising it publically, I already have 50 people interested. These people consist of both kids and their parents. I assume there will be teenagers interested, too, who may attend without their parents but with their permission.

I can update you later when I have a better idea of everyone who’s coming. I was hoping this could be from 4:00 to 5:00 pm on Thursday or Friday. I’ll encourage people to have posters pre-made prior to the start of the protest and plan on giving them instructions beforehand and a speech afterward.
I was also wondering if I need any permits or if there are any requirements that I need to follow? Do you have any suggestions on how to make this protest safer?

Thank you for your time and stay safe,
Julia Streeter

Some of you might RECALL Julia was instrumental in the successful recall of an Elected Official in San Mateo County recently.

“We Stand with the Black Community,” Zuckerberg

By Michael G. Stogner

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was quoted in todays LATIMES.

I have to admit, I have No Idea what that means. F.B. Headquaters is located in Menlo Park, which is in San Mateo County, California.

October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi a 36 year old black man was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees while in Custody. December 31, 2018 The Coroners Office ruled the manner of Death to be a Homicide.

“I have determined the manner of Death to be Homicide.”

Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 reviewed and approved 12/31/2018

HOMICIDE PROTOCOL* 36 year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies

March 1, 2019 two months later District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a closed to the public Press Conference which I attended. He gave a 26 minute presentation on why he was not charging any of the Five not Six Sheriff Employees in the tragic death of Chinedu Okobi. Who had committed no crime before the deputy decided to engage him. He was tased 7 times, struck with baton, Sprayed in face with O.C. spray and dog piled by SIX Sheriff Employees. After he stopped breathing he was sat up on El Camino Real and ignored for about 9 minutes to make sure he was dead before AMR and Fire Paramedics could get to him.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Never mentions the word Homicide in his presentation it’s only at the very end (47:30) of the Question and Answer period when he was asked by KQED Reporter Julie Small “Do you know the Manner of Death?”

A reasonable person would ask since it was determined a Homicide, How is it that no criminal charges were filed against the Six County Employees?

Last week the world saw George Floyd being Murdered by four Police Officers, The United States is Protesting today during a Pandemic because a Citizen was brave enough to try and stop it but also videoed it. The body camera and audio has not been released yet Why?

Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg said “We stand with the Black Community.”

I do not recall Mark Zuckerberg saying One Word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide in his own backyard.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, “Best Less Lethal Tools.” Really?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.

The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.

Supervisor Warren Slocum

You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.

I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.

SMC Board of Supervisor Meeting May 5, 2020

Sandra Lee Harmon 56, a Mother and Wife was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies less than 8 hours later at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California.

San Mateo County Release the Videos, Audios Today. Identity the Deputies involved. It’s been 7 days since she was killed.

At 3:52:22 My public comment was read by Suki into the public record.

  • Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>May 5 at 8:11 AM
  • To:Sukhmani S. Purewal
  • Cc: Jeff Regan, Dave Pine, Don Horsley, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom and 1 more…Tue,
  • Dear Supervisors,
    I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened.
    Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018

    Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.”
    Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.

    Thank You
    Michael G. Stogner

    No need to read below just for reference.
    Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.
