For a small percentage of America Susan Bassi’s report will sound familiar, Either because you personally have experienced a similar path or you know of someone who has. Most likely you have stopped communicating with them because the subject matter is to disturbing/overwhelming or you think they must have deserved it.
Susan Bassi is a true American Hero. She has been working to Help Others. Here is her FB post from this morning.
152,000 views and nearly 2K comments. We are getting better at reporting what mainstream media will not.
I posted this video on Sunday. You can see what happened in five days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPPX_rL3ujU&t=15s
For those of you who do not know, I have been part of a team trying to get mainstream media to report on our family courts for the past five years. I estimate I have spent over 4000 hours meeting with reporters, editors and publishers from the following news organizations:
San Jose Inside
NBC Bay Area
ABC10
CBS
KTVU Fox 2
Washingtonpost
NewYork/Times
100Reporters
TMZ
Los Angeles Times
SeattleTimes.com
The Mercury News
San Francisco Chronicle
The Sacramento Bee
Boston Globe Subscribers
@CenterforInvestigativeReporting
KQED
and any reporter, editor or publisher who would ever give me 5 mins. I tried to explain how your children were being stolen. how your homes were being seized and your lives destroyed and yet it seems nobody was interested in paying for the ink.

Then I was arrested and have been prosecuted for 3 years and I met some folks watching cops on

YouTube ☑️

and they listened and tried to make me better at pitching your stories. They also probably paid a price for trying to help after snitches and informants including Scott Largent tried to take them down, but they were resilient and persistent and the most noble photojournalists I have ever met.

San Joaquin Valley

It took me 200 hearings in family court. 29 hearings in criminal court and who would have ever known a divorce and prosecution for a local rule made by a bunch of dirty lawyers would have taught me more than that

UCDavis degree or that UC Berkeley law degree I gave up on to follow my husband into farming businesses.
But as they like to say on my channel, I guess I got woke and educated all at once. And this time I was smart enough to get it on video. So for those of you who dealt with these lawyers, bailiffs, custody evaluators, CPAs, bailiffs , and private judges, I heard you. I am no longer waiting for someone else. We are going to get these stories.
So for any cop, judge, lawyer or dirty DA who thinks you got away, think again. I have a camera and I am not afraid to use it.
Thank you all who shared, subbed and commented. We now have more views on this video than San Jose Inside. San Jose Mercury and NBC news have combined!

San Mateo County’s Above the Law Gang.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was ordered to stay home when he was the subject of an Internal Affairs Investigation. That is exactly what happens.

What about SMCSO Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino, and SMCDA Inspectors William Massey & John Warren? Were they ordered to stay home?

Hello Rosemerry,

As you know it’s important for the Public’s Trust that Nobody is above the law.

Was SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino ever placed on Administrative Leave after his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest.

Who at the Sheriff’s Office conducted the Internal Affairs Investigation that you told the PADP was being conducted? Is it completed?

Please provide San Mateo County News.com with the Booking Photo from the Sheriff’s office as you know I have asked for this several times.

Did DMV suspend his California Drivers License yes or no?

Thank You

    Michael:

    I hope you also had a good holiday season.

    As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record.  Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.

    Best,

    John

“Unqualified trust relationship with this partner.” Hon. Judge Lisa Novak

By Michael G. Stogner

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

In a response to the Commission on Judicial Performance .

The Commission on Judicial Performance, established in 1960, is the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity and for disciplining judges, pursuant to article VI, section 18 of the California Constitution.

Somebody filed a complaint against Judge Novak because she notified all the Judges present at the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

The person or persons who filed the complaint was not concerned at all by the fact that a SMC Sheriff Sergeant would lie under oath in her court, the person and the CJP was only concerned that she informed all the Judges who attended.

She noted the close relationship between the Sheriffs Office and the Court and cited the need to have an unqualified trust relationship with this partner.

Lets look at this unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.

In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi three False News Releases. Omitting 6th Sheriff Employee for starters.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI arrested by RWCPD September 14, 2019 Sheriff Bolanos refuses to release the Booking Photo. Why?

San Mateo County former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case going for more than 5 years with the sole purpose to cause harm to him mentally and financially. The public might recall the big Press Conference claiming Nobody is above the law in San Mateo County and Charging Deputy Lopez with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel member in Jail. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos knew there was No Evidence to support those charges.

These are just three current examples unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

An older example when Carlos G. Bolanos was Undersheriff 2010 the Brave Female Deputy reporting the 46 San Mateo County Sheriff Male Employees receiving and sharing Porn and Rape Video on County Computers.

It is my experience that Judges in San Mateo County have allowed Sheriff Employees and District Attorney Employees and County Counsel Employees to lie/file false instruments and give False Testimony on a daily basis, this is the Norm it shouldn’t be.

I say you can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

Lets find out exactly what happened after Hon. Judge Lisa Novak made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

Are SMCDA Inspectors William Massey and John Warren on Administrative Leave during this Alleged Internal Investigation?

By Michael G. Stogner

January 7, 2020 San Mateo Counsel Attorney Joseph Charles filed a Motion to Quash Subpoenas involving San Mateo County District Attorney Office Inspectors William Massey and John Warren. He claimed without offering any evidence to support it that the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office is investigating itself which as you can imagine if true at the very least is a Terrible Idea when you consider the Conflict of Interest. Attorney Charles refuses to say when the alleged Investigation started, and Who is conducting the investigation if in fact there is one at all. The simple reason I say that is an outside agency should be conducting that investigation to avoid the appearance of a Conflict of Interest. The give away in attorney Charles filing was that the Investigation is

recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.”

The Defendant in this case is the forced to retire Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and the underlying criminal trial has been in the court system for 5 years and 2 months. Most likely will not go to trial till July 2020. The alleged Investigation which has a No End In Site ETA should take a Maximum of 30 days to complete, they have had 73 days to do it so far.

The public expects criminal charges filed are accurate and honest, Juan P. Lopez case proves that is not true in San Mateo County

Editor

November 6, 2019 SSF Court 1:30 PM

X Deputy Juan P. Lopez will inform the court of his response to the District Attorneys Office Offer of No Prison Time if he accepts the deal.

Everyone in San Mateo County remembers Five years ago he was arrested at gun point in front of his son for Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Inmate at the Redwood City Jail. Big press conference by D. A. Wagstaffe at the time, It was also reported he embezzled up to $400,000 of campaign donations. One small problem with that was he only raised about $400.00. Those charges were all dismissed because of Prosecutorial Misconduct. He is now being offered a deal to plead guilty to charges that came from the BACKPACK that was stolen from his car which was parked at his condo in Redwood City. That theft happened shortly after he filed papers as a Write In Candidate for Sheriff. A search warrant was then created looking for what they already had “Documents that were stolen” Mortgage Fraud the owner occupied box had a check mark in it. The lender never filed a complaint.

Any concerned citizens/residents are invited to join us in court November 6, 2019

I first met Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez right after he announced he was going to be a candidate for Sheriff in San Mateo County in 2014. I thanked him for giving the residents a choice for Sheriff. I was on the phone with him when he got arrested at gun point at one of his homes. I was with him when the Sheriff’s Office served him with legal papers at his home, I opened the door and greeted the 2 Sheriff Deputies. I was with him and another concerned citizen Lamont Phemister when the Sheriff’s Office ordered him to be at the Gun Range to receive more legal papers. The first time they gave him 90 minutes notice, the second time 4 day notice.

Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez was charged with 14 Felony Counts 5 years ago. The District Attorney’s Office, The Sheriff’s Office and County Counsel’s Office have done everything possible to cause harm to him and those close to him. He has lost 5 years of Income, his last year he earned about $250,000. He has hired 2 Law Firms you can guess that cost is over $200,000.

Now Five Years later the District Attorneys Office Offers a Plea Bargain the day It’s lead Investigator Jordan Boyd was to take the Witness stand. Tomorrow he and his attorneys will inform the Court and all of San Mateo County his response.

I personally think that is Newsworthy I might be wrong.

Millbrae Officials Silent on in custody death of pedestrian Chinedu V. Okobi.

On October 3, 2018 in the middle of the day on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California. Chinedu V. Okobi died after 5 San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies, Tased him, hit him with extended baton, and sprayed him with OC spray, at least 4 deputies were on top of him when he stopped breathing, was he turned on his side as policy requires, who if anyone provided CPR.

The City of Millbrae has hired the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office to provide peace officers or public safety services for the residents. Captain Paul Kunkel took over the Millbrae position just 3 weeks before this in custody death of a pedestrian happened.

We are not talking about a violent bank robbery, or car jacking suspect, we are talking about a man walking down the sidewalk. At the very minimum this demonstrates the provider is incompetent and at the maximum criminal behavior.

I have not seen or heard any comments from these two gentlemen who are responsible.

These are the seven people who are responsible to the residents of Millbrae to provide Police Services. They have remained silent. Many Good and Concerned Citizens have been speaking up at the Board of Supervisors Meetings demanding answers to what really happened that day Release the video and audio recordings.

12/4/2018 Supervisor Meeting over 40 speakers

02/13/2019 Chinedu’s Birthday, 37 Balloons given with Petition of 50,000 signatures to D.A. Steve Wagstaffe.

That night I attended a Vigil at 1400 El Camino Real, Millbrae, California it was a stormy night full of love and respect for Chindeu and his loved ones. I did not see any of the seven people above attend. I did meet two neighbors who said they are terrified of the Police in Millbrae. I told them they don’t have Police in Millbrae they have the Sheriff’s Office, big difference. They also said they are sickened by what happened to Chinedu Okobi. I thanked them for attending and sharing their thoughts.

LVMPD to a Citizen Journalist “Just because you have a website doesn’t mean your part of the Press.”

The above statement made at 1:41 minute mark in video. At the 11:00 mark they arrest the citizen journalist. This was at the Metro Press Conference.

This is the same Las Vegas Metro Police that did this to Jody L. Williams door at 9:30PM October 12, 2018. Claiming they just wanted to ask her a couple of questions. It’s also the same LVMPD that told Mark DePaula that they had nothing to do with the April 21, 2007 Operation Dollhouse Sting by the FBI which Detained/Transported UnderSheriff Carlos G. Bolanos according to Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf former President of the DSA.

San Mateo County’s Measure W should be audited. It passed by about 500 votes in the last 2 days of counting. DMV

DMV under scrutiny in voting glitch
State leaders will assess whether registration errors changed November election results.
By John Myers
SACRAMENTO — Faced with evidence that some voter registration forms weren’t properly filed by California’s Department of Motor Vehicles, state officials will now investigate whether any votes were wrongly rejected and whether the final results in any state or local races should be reconsidered.
Secretary of State Alex Padilla and leaders of the agency that oversees the DMV agreed on Monday to settle a federal lawsuit brought by advocacy groups including the League of Women Voters of California and the American Civil Liberties Union. The settlement, in part, states that Padilla’s office will “take steps to ensure that every vote is counted” if ballots were rejected and will provide “guidance to elections officials in the relevant jurisdiction(s) on how to count the affected ballots and, if appropriate, recertify election results.”
On Dec. 14, DMV officials revealed that staff members had not transmitted voter registration files for 589 people whose applications or updated applications were filled out before the close of registration for the Nov. 6 statewide election. At the time, state officials could not confirm whether any of those voters had been turned away on election day, or if any had cast last-minute provisional ballots that were rejected in the final tally.
Monday’s settlement raises the possibility that a full investigation of the delayed voter registration documents could reveal races in which the outcome might have changed had those voters been allowed to participate.
State officials now have 60 days to complete an investigation into the identity of those voters and why DMV staff members failed to transmit the files in a timely fashion.
The error was the latest in a series of mishaps revealed in the first six months of operation for California’s new automated “motor voter” program, under which DMV customers are registered to vote unless they decline.
“I am committed to working with new leadership at DMV and the new administration to ensure integrity of the motor voter program and accuracy of the data,” Padilla said in a statement Monday night. “This settlement continues to move those efforts forward.”
Padilla’s office said on Tuesday that a preliminary investigation had not found any instances in which voter registration delays would have changed the outcome of a race.
The deadline to register for November’s election was Oct. 22. The records in question either came in before that deadline, or included documents signed and dated before that date. A Dec. 14 letter to Padilla from Jean Shiomoto, who was then DMV director, said the registration records weren’t submitted “due to a misunderstanding on the part of the department, for which we take responsibility.”
Shiomoto retired from state government at the end of 2018. Gov. Gavin Newsom has yet to appoint a new permanent director.
“We continue to actively work with our stakeholders to ensure full transparency for the California motor voter program,” Melissa Figueroa, deputy secretary for communications at the California State Transportation Agency, said in a statement Monday. “As an agency, we are committed to getting this right.”
The settlement, filed Monday in a San Francisco federal court, said that DMV staffers failed to transmit voter registration documents in a timely fashion beginning Oct. 12 and that all documents were held back for the three weeks following election day.
Several other problems were reported just days after state officials launched the DMV’s automated voter registration system in late April.
Those included multiple registration forms sent to counties for the same voter , flawed registrations for 23,000 DMV customers and a limited number of non-U.S. citizens — permanent green-card residents — mistakenly added to the voter rolls.
The agreement to investigate why DMV officials didn’t promptly submit hundreds of voter registration forms “establishes concrete steps that California will take to investigate and improve the DMV voter registration system,” said Melissa Breach, executive director of the League of Women Voters of California.

San Mateo County’s E-mail Deletion Policy, Put on Hold by Mike Callagy

mc_portrait_squareArtboard 1

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy has stopped/paused/delayed this policy from going into effect Feb. 1, 2019. May 1, 2019 is the date it will go into effect unless it is rescinded.

I’ll give just a couple of examples of why this is a terrible policy. San Mateo County’s last election had a tax measure W pass in the last couple of days by about 500 votes with more than 270,000 ballots cast. Several elected officials made public statements including Audit/Recall the elections office and officer. That is pretty unusual, it will be important to go back years to find all communications between the elected officials, county counsel attorneys, Supervisors, Assemblymen, Wordcrafters who communicated about placing Measure W on the ballot in the first place, using public monies to promote it etc.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office used as a weapon, falsely charging people: Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case is a perfect example, you will recall Steve Wagstaffe told the world he smuggled a cellphone and drugs to a gang member in jail. That was a lie from day one,

I said falsely charging people: Jody L. Williams of Las Vegas should be considered. Her case is sealed why? 2007 she was in Las Vegas when Operation Dollhouse netted Carlos G. Bolanos at a single family home which had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a minor.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Not charging people: Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered by 5 SMCSO Deputies October 3, 2018.

Email messages that do not otherwise serve a business purpose (including, but not limited to, draft communications, administrative communications, etc.) shall be routinely discarded. For that reason, each workforce member who uses the County email system has the same responsibility for their email messages as they do for any document they obtain in the course of their official duties and must decide which communications should be retained for business o legal reasons and which should be discarded. If a workforce member has any questions regarding if an email should be retained as a business record, he or she should seek guidance from his/her supervisor and/or department head who may consult with legal counsel as necessary.

Email messages in a// default folders of a user’s mailbox will be automatically deleted after ninety (90) days. Automatically deleted emails will be accessible in emergency situations for a period of thirty (30) days after they are deleted from the user’s mailbox.

Email messages that constitute records to be retained for business or legal reasons may be saved in excess of ninety (90) days in any of the following ways: (1) saved in Rich Text Format (RTF) or Portable Document Format (PDF) and then transferred to electronic filing systems or other media for long-term storage in accordance with the department’s regular filing and storage procedures; (2) affirmatively “dragged and dropped” or “cut and pasted” into email subfolders created by the user (the user must select the particular retention period that applies to any created subfolders (i.e. one year, two years, ten years, indefinitely, etc.)); or (3) printed in hard copy and filed or stored as appropriate. Any email subfolders created by the user within Microsoft Exchange will, along with the user’s in- box including any migrated mail, count toward the user’s 100GB mailbox space limitation as outlined in Section E of this policy.

Workforce members should seek guidance from their department heads to determine the specific time requirements applicable to records and electronic correspondence generated, received and/or maintained by their department in accordance with their department’s records retention policy. Workforce members are strongly encouraged to review the email content of subfolders on a regular basis and to delete any content for which retention is not required.

Regardless of countywide or departmental records retention requirements, email and other electronic correspondence pertaining to a threatened or actual legal action must be retained until the litigation is concluded. It is the responsibility of the department involved, or County Counsel, to notify ISO in writing, of the need for the hold on electronic communications.

SIX4THREE vs. FACEBOOK

December 7, 2018 San Mateo County Superior Court Hon. Judge Raymond Swope Courtroom 8A. 9:00AM

Yesterday I drove 90 miles be in the courtroom to observe. Many of you know I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 19 years. I am very interested in the lobbying aspect and Influence peddling of the Tech companies with local governments, example Judges, District Attorneys, Local Sheriff Offices, Local Law Enforcement agencies, County Supervisors etc. What are the tech capabilities with respect to data, like hacking the California DMV computer system. I’m currently interested in keeping Jody L. Williams of Las Vegas alive. She was recently criminally charged in San Mateo County for a misdemeanor all records are SEALED. Is it possible that a friend of FB could influence the criminal charges being filed of a civilian? That is why I was there yesterday.

Hon Judge Raymond Swope, informed the people in the courtroom that it is very common for him to sign protective orders, and seal orders. That is when I realized he might not have a clue what he sealed. He did acknowledge that at least 250 pages are now in the public domain in Europe House of Commons.

Expedited Discovery: FB Attorneys claimed they don’t know what information Ted Kramer disclosed. They know what was sealed don’t they? They claim “We need to know and most importantly the Court needs to know. “How do we get to the bottom of this.”

That is a great question, in order to answer that you would need to identify what THIS is.

Hon. Judge Judge Raymond Swope was doing the work of FB attorneys when he got stopped. He tried to get attorney David S. Godkin to answer a question that violated “Attorney Client Privilege.” That is when I decided to leave, this case was getting bigger and causing more questions to be asked not less. like watching an atomic mushroom cloud grow. I have to give FB credit they not only show up with enough attorneys to fill a Mini Van they also had a Public Relations pretty girl to ask me in the hall if I was Media and do I have any questions for her about what I just observed. I answered I am the media, I’m San Mateo County News, and no I have no questions.

Styleform IT. vs. Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg responds to the 250 pages released.
