San Mateo County’s Stay in Place Order

For Immediate Release March 16, 2020

NEWS RELEASE

Seven Bay Area Jurisdictions Order Residents to Stay Home

COVID-19 spread reduces activity to only most essential needs.

Santa Clara, CA – Seven health officers within six Bay Area counties are taking a bold, unified step to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and preserve critical health care capacity across the region.

On March 16, the Public health officers of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties announced, with the City of Berkeley, a legal order directing their respective residents to shelter at home for three weeks beginning March 17. The order limits activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs. The guidance comes after substantial input from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and best practices from other health officials around the world.

Scientific evidence shows social distancing is one of the most effective approaches to slow the transmission of communicable disease. The shelter-at-home order follows new data of increasing local transmission of COVID-19, including 258 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 4 deaths shared by the seven jurisdictions, as of March 15. The Bay Area’s collected confirmed cases is more than half of California’s case count. This does not account for the rapidly increasing number of assumed cases of community transmission. As testing capacity increases, the number of laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases is expected to increase markedly.

“Temporarily changing our routine is absolutely necessary to slow the spread of this pandemic,”said Dr. Sara Cody, Santa Clara County Public Health Officer. “The Health Officers from the largest jurisdictions in the San Francisco Bay Area are united and we are taking this step together to offer the best protection to our respective communities.”

The order defines essential activities as necessary for the health and safety for individuals and their families. Essential businesses allowed to operate during the recommended action include health care operations; businesses that provide food, shelter, and social services, and other necessities of life for economically disadvantaged or otherwise needy individuals; fresh and non- perishable food retailers (including convenience stores); pharmacies; child care facilities; gas stations; banks; laundry businesses and services necessary for maintaining the safety, sanitation and essential operation of a residence. In addition, health care, law and safety, and essential government functions will continue under the recommended action. For the full list, please see section 10 of the order.

“While the goal is to limit groups congregating together in a way that could further spread thevirus, it is not complete social shutdown,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County’s Public Health Officer. “You can still complete your most essential outings or even engage in outdoor activity, so long as you avoid close contact.”

On January 30, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern, and the United States followed the next day by declaring a federal public health emergency. On February 26, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed community transmission of COVID-19 in the San Francisco Bay Area, meaning the afflicted patient had no signs of associating with anyone who had been diagnosed with the virus. This collective legal order comes one day after Governor Gavin Newsom ordered older adults, age 65 and older, stay home.

“Limiting interpersonal interactions is a proven strategy to slow and reduce viral spread and protect the most vulnerable among us — individuals who are 60 years of age and older, people with chronic and underlying medical conditions, and people experiencing homelessness.” Dr.Erica Pan said, “Our counties share borders and many people live in one county and work in another. It’s absolutely critical for us to be aligned on COVID-19 mitigation efforts.”

by Michael G. Stogner

These three men in charge have decided it’s business as usual. What do they know that the rest of the world doesn’t? The CDC recommended that “for the next eight weeks,organisers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.”

Presiding Judge: Hon. Jonathan E. Karesh

Assistant Presiding Judge: Hon. Leland Davis, III

Court Executive Officer: Neal I Taniguchi

As of this morning no closure of the courts, Why?

Jury Pools are more than 50 people. There are more than 50 people standing or sitting in the halls waiting for the courts everyday.

San Mateo County Sheriff Office Booking Photo Audit.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Office released the Booking photo of Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez the day he was arrested which is exactly what the Sheriff Office is expected to do. Booking Photos belong to the Public.

Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez was Booked into jail, fingerprinted and photographed. He was charged with Smuggling a Cell-Phone and Drugs into Maguire Jail where he worked and he gave them to a Hells Angel Gang Member according to the Sheriff and District Attorney. That was over 5 years ago, There was never any evidence that those allegations were true or accurate. That is Outrageous Government Conduct, and Prosecutorial Misconduct.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino was arrested for DUI September 14, 2019 @ 11:30 PM by the Redwood City Police Department on Broadway near the Deputy Sheriff Association building which has a bar in it. He refused both Blood and Breath test which according to DMV website is a Suspension of Drivers License for a 1 year period. The officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV.

It’s not clear that Redwood City Police Officer’s took his Drivers License away from him or not at this time.

What is clear is that the Sheriff’s Office has refused to provide the Booking Photo.

The Supervisors of San Mateo County are the Oversight for the Residents.

Was Sheriff Sergeant Aquino Under-Charged and given Special treatment?

    Could you please ask both of them to explain why?
    Thank You

Santa Monica to settle child sex abuse cases

City Council approves $42.6-million payout in suits alleging lewd acts with teenage boys by a police volunteer.

ERIC ULLER killed himself after molestation charges were filed. (L.A. County Sheriff’s Department) 

By Richard Winton

For decades, Eric Uller served as the Santa Monica Police Department’s technology wizard, overseeing street cameras, creating crime maps and advancing its computers. But many knew him better as an ever-present volunteer in the Police Activities League beginning in the 1980s, helping young boys in the predominantly Latino Pico area. He would give kids rides in his unmarked police car.

But two years ago, Los Angeles County Special Victims Unit detectives arrested Uller on suspicion of lewd acts with teenage boys. Uller died by suicide in November 2018 after being charged with molesting four boys. More victims came forward and the number rose to 23, with cases dating from 1989.

On Tuesday, the Santa Monica City Council agreed to pay those victims $42.6 million to resolve the ensuing sexual abuse lawsuits that were filed against the city. The settlement also resolves a claim by a woman that she was abused by another PAL volunteer.

A judge will decide how much each of Uller’s alleged victims will receive.

“These are lifelong neighbors and dear friends. To these men, thank you for being brave and coming forward, not only for yourself but for standing up for others,” Councilwoman Ana Maria Jara said after the vote. “Our community and this council walks with you on this journey toward healing and justice. Please know that your community will continue to grow stronger and bind us together with the purpose of ensuring this never happens again.”

Uller’s position with the city and his role as a volunteer with the PAL — a nonprofit operated by the city — gave him access to teenage boys. Authorities allege he molested them in his car, and sometimes under the guise of taking them for medical exams at his father’s medical office. He sexually assaulted one boy for years in the 1980s and 1990s, authorities alleged.

“The Police Department and city had repeated warnings and reports of his horrendous behavior,” said David Ring, one of several attorneys representing the victims. “Uller as authority figure preyed on the most vulnerable young Latino boys.”

Several former city employees told Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives investigating the allegations that they reported Uller’s misconduct to their bosses, and one even described him as being able to use a police car with the knowledge of top officials.

Uller’s former boss, retired Lt. Greg Slaughter, told detectives he witnessed Uller driving young boys “all over town” and reported it to his bosses. Slaughter also told detectives that an investigation launched after child pornography was found on a Police Department communications center screen “led to Eric Uller,” the report said.

The failure to take action against Uller earlier has spurred outrage in the community.

The investigation has also renewed an enduring question over how Santa Monica, a liberal bastion of wealth, treats its less-privileged residents.

School board member Oscar de la Torre, in an opinion piece in the Santa Monica Daily Press, accused the city of ignoring reports and rumors about Uller for years.
