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.
It was the City Attorney Rosemarie Labog Zimmerman who finally released the names of the Four Police Officers Involved In the Homicide of Roger Allen who was killed on April 7, 2021. Her Press Release dated April 29, 2021 that’s 23 days after the Homicide by the Daly City Police Department. Who authorized the City Attorney to release the names? District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said that Police Chief Patrick Hensley could release the Officers names anytime, but is that true? He is an At Will Employee he might not be authorized to release those names. Who is his boss? Is it Shawnna Maltbie the City Manager? Lets see his employment contract.
An administrative investigation by an impartial outside investigator will also be conducted. Nobody is asking for an Administrative Investigation. Everybody knows an Administrative Investigation is useless.
City Attorney Rosemarie Labog Zimmerman, City Manager Shawnna Maltbie, Mayor Juslyn Manalo, are all responsible for withholding the names of the four Police Officers for 23 days. Why? What was gained by that? Did it create more or less Public Trust with the residents?
Here are the names: Officer Rosa Brenes, Lieutenant Michael Brennan, Officer Nicholas McCarthy and Officer Cameron Newton.
The naming of Police Officers involved in a Critical Incident is the absolute Minimum Standard San Mateo County Residents should accept from all Law Enforcement. That should happen within 24 hours.
Do Police Officers and top Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County lie to the Public? Of course they do. Do they always trash the memory and reputation of the person they just killed? Of course they do.
Chinedu V. Okobi Killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae less than 8 miles from where Roger Allen was Killed. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lied about Chinedu within a few hours and left the lies on SMC Website for 5 months. SMCSO Sergeant Irfan Zaidi filed a completely False Police Report lying about ordering the removal of the handcuffs before the 8 minutes of chest compressions took place on the deceased.
Sandra Lee Harmon Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd received the unedited BWC Video within 24 hours of the Homicide. Boyd went along with the lies Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe promoted. What they all knew was Sandra was shot 8 times, 3 fatal shots in her back, She was shot at while she was unarmed and her hands were above her head. 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering). Sheriff Bolanos, D.A. Wagstaffe, The Investigators, County Counsel David Silberman, were all ok with the above facts by omitted from the Government story and the unverified statement that Deputy Dominguez turned off his BWC before the homicide occurred.
From the bottom Ms. Zimmerman’s Press release: As reported previously, the City requests that anyone with information relevant to this incident to please call the District Attorney’s Office, Chief Inspector William Massey at (650) 363‐4883.
I would just like to point out that William Massey is Not San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector.
San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector is John Warren and has been for many years.
John Warren is a 26 year Daly City Police Officer (retired)
So getting back to the Elected Officials and Staff of Daly City, What was their plan and why did they go along with Terrible Idea of not disclosing the names of the Involved officers. The public knows that Police Officers will kill people in the line of duty, that is part of the job. The public expects Elected Officials and Staff to do their job, Not help cover up anything.
What caused 4 Daly City Police Officers to be at a disabled truck (flat tire) in the first place? Who was the first Officer on the scene? Which Officer fired her/his weapon twice into an occupied vehicle? How is it possible this entire event lasted only 16 minutes before the deceased was transported from the scene. That has got to be a Worlds Record.
What we know today 27 days later.
Roger Allen R.I.P. was shot and killed in Daly City by somebody on April 7, 2021
The Attorney General of the State of California Rob Bonta should Investigate this homicide, That’s not going to happen. Daly City has lost all credibility the Staff is Responsible, Look to the City Managers.
In 2014 Errol Chang was killed inside his home in Pacifica by two Daly City Police Swat Team Officers. They were both ordered to enter the tiny home by who knows who of the Daly City Swat Command after being on scene for only 6 hours. They entered and assaulted Errol’s space and shot him in the chest 8 times killing him on the spot.
The Pacifica Police on the other hand did everything right. They were first on the scene and were in communication with Errol and his family members and nobody got hurt and they tried to calm him down to get him the help his family was trying to accomplish.
The question I have for Who knows Who in charge of the Daly City Swat Team that night is, What was your hurry?What did you think was going to happen when your two guys broke into the only safe space Errol had? What was your Plan?
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said:
Officers Mario Busalacchi and Stephen Woelkers “undoubtedly saved the life” of Busalacchi by shooting and killing 34-year-old Errol Chang in the home he shared with his mother at 384 San Pedro Ave.
Daly City’s “Who knows Who,” could have saved Errol Chang’s life by not ordering Busalacchi & Woelkers into the house in the first place.
A special note and commendation for the conduct of Officers Busalacchi and Woelkers must be made. It is our belief that both officers conducted themselves in a professional, reasonable and proper manner and to the last moment sought to avoid the very result demanded by the conduct of Errol Chang. The reaction of both officers to the threat of imminent death to Ofr. Busalacchi is to be commended. Officer Busalacchi faced a remarkably dangerous situation, knowing that an angry, irrational and armed man was now raising the knife to stab him again. When he found it necessary to resort to lethal force, he did so in a manner that probably saved his own life. Ofr. Woelker’s conduct in seeking to prevent further attack and the likely death of his fellow officer was equally commendable. The conduct of the officers in this case can only be described as exemplary and the community was well served by their actions.
Daly City Police Department provided assistance with the investigation. Any reasonable person would know that this is a Bad Idea aka known as a Huge Conflict of Interest.
I hope you noticed what I call Wagstaffe 101 “very result demanded by the conduct of Errol Chang,” Always blame the deceased for his/her own death.
I don’t think Daly City Swat Officers deserve any commendation for following orders they knew meant finish this and kill him. When you put yourself in harms way, and then kill the person I don’t think that is bravery.
This Swat Team assault on the home after only six hours should be compared with the Redwood City Police and San Mateo County Sheriff Swat Teams combined 17.5 hour Standoff of James (Jim) McGee in Redwood City. Totally different outcome. Walked out said hi to his friends he was former RWCPD Officer nobody injured, no doors smashed in you get the picture.
Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie remains silent. It’s been 24 days since somebody from her Police Department killed Roger Allen. Each City in San Mateo County is responsible for the behavior of their Police Department. I now know that Mayor Juslyn Manalo has no authority over her Police Chief Patrick Hensley because she said several times in the April 26, 2021 Zoom meeting that she had asked the Chief for those names. She never said what his response was, she also said the names would be release Wednesday the 28th but that did not happen. So that leaves City Manager Shawnna Maltbie this is exactly why you have a City Manager in the first place, One person who is Responsible for the Police Department besides the Police Chief. Dave and Bill could have answered my e-mail in a minute they both know the answer they chose not to.
The Maltbie Family is San Mateo County Government which is “Those Who Matter.” Can anyone else think of one family that has four members involved in SMC Government, Jeff Maltbie son of John Maltbie is the City Manager of San Carlos, Shawnna Maltbie married to Jeff Maltbie, and Jayme Ackemann daughter of John Maltbie was a SamTrans Official during the Fraud non Investigation by the SMCDA’s Office. From her Twitter account: I said it. And I meant it. Writer RWC Climate Magazine:
Any reasonable person would know that Shawnna Maltbie should have disclosed the names of the four Daly City Police Officers Involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen within 24 hours of April 7, 2021.
Any reasonable person would know that Shawnna Maltbie should have FIRED Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley within 24 hours of this Homicide.
I sent this e-mail to the President of the Board of Supervisors and one of his top aides for two reasons.
David Canepa used to be the Mayor of Daly City and he would certainly know the answer.
Bill Silverfarb use to be a former newspaper reporter and editor who works in county government now. Worked for the San Mateo Daily Journal for 17 years and if he didn’t know the answer I was sure he could find out that answer in no time.
Michael Stogner <email@example.com>To:Dave Canepa, Bill SilverfarbFri, Apr 23 at 6:15 PM
Hello Dave and Bill, I know you two would know the answer to this question. Steve Wagstaffe has told me the Police Chief of Daly City could identify the 4 Police Officers involved in the death of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021. Of course naming them doesn’t mean that any wrong doing or crime has been committed. As you know it’s been 17 days and the Police Chief has chosen his behavior.
I’m just curious does City Manager Shawnna Maltbie have the sole authority to fire Patrick Hensley?
Does the Mayor have that sole authority or does the City Council have that Authority?
Thank You Michael G. Stogner
The Media and “Those Who Matter” Modern Media’s Efforts to make a story out of a non story Yesterday’s News by tomorrow e-mails back and forth between San Mateo County’s top FOUR Law Enforcement Officials.
Roger Allen a 44 year old Black man was killed by somebody with a gun on April 7, 2021 while he was sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in a residential neighborhood in Daly City. That was 20 days ago. Last night the Daly City Government held a zoom meeting for the first time for the Outraged public to speak about it. I don’t know the exact number of participants on that zoom meeting but it was well over 125.
Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie attended but remained silent, Assistant City Manager Stephen Stolte Hosted the meeting also silent.
I mentioned the Outraged public, I did not mention the Outraged Elected Officials and Staff who are responsible for the behavior of the Daly City Police Department and its officers. The reason I didn’t mention them is because not one of them is Outraged with the killing of a Black man who committed no crime and was killed while sitting in a parked truck.
The demands were pretty consistent “What are the names of the four Daly City Police Officers Involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen?” Who could provide that information? Shawnna Maltbie, Stephen Stolte and Patrick Hensley that’s who. Why wouldn’t those three Employees want what the public wants?
The four Unnamed DCPD Officers idea comes from San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and DCPD Chief Patrick Hensley vague and unbelievable description of what supposedly happened and how Roger Allen ended up dead at the scene.
That was until last night when Talika Fletcher, Roger Allen’s sister mentioned the other police agency officers being protected. What other Police Agency Officers? Is that even a possibility in San Mateo County? Of course it is.
Talika Fletcher and her Aunt Zipora Wright both stated that Talika is being STALKED and Harassed by Law Enforcement. They are in Mourning and must be protected by the Citizens not Law Enforcement.
How is this possible in San Mateo County, the answer is Simple, “Those Who Matter” run the Government. They control criminal Investigations, have the ability to falsely criminally charge Those Who Don’t matter like x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez for the sole purpose of financially destroying him.
What we saw last night was NOT ONE of the people with the Authority and Power to solve, did so. They must be removed in order for San Mateo County to finally get on the right track. Elect Good Human beings is my recommendation.
Those Who Matter
Thank You to all the Concerned Citizens who took the time to be on the Zoom Meeting last night.
Those Who Matter are holding a public meeting to hear your comments about the 4 Unnamed Daly City Police Officers who were Involved in the killing of Roger Allen a 44 year old Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a truck with a flat tire on April 7, 2021. The official statement from Daly City Elected Officials and Staff is that the FOUR Police Officers somehow arrived at the disabled vehicle and offered assistance. The result is at least one of them shot and killed Roger Allen while he was inside the vehicle. There was a female passenger sitting in the back of the truck when the shots were fired into the vehicle. The real question for the Elected Officials and Staff is what caused FOUR Daly City Police Officers to be at that truck on April 7, 2021 in the first place.
You will remember it was the Daly City Swat TEAM that got tired of waiting at Errol Chang’s family home in Pacifica. After being on the scene for a short amount of time, the order came in to finish it. Errol who was the only person inside the small home was not a threat to anybody, the house was completely surrounded, the public was safe. Errol was killed by the DCPD Swat Team minutes later. Who gave the order?
Redwood City Police and San Mateo County Sheriff Swat Teams had a very different result when they surrounded James (Jim) McGee’s home for 17.5 hours. Nobody got a scratch the difference he was a “Those Who Matter” individual a former Redwood City Police Officer.
Yesterday the Showboater found a reporter to make the obvious statement about Body Worn Cameras.
“Make no mistake about it, every city in San Mateo County should have body cameras,” said David Canepa, who represents Daly City and other areas as president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors. “It’s in the best interest of the community to have the video and it’s in the best interest of the police officers.”
Body Worn Camera Videos can be edited within minutes just ask San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Jordan Boyd. When I say edited here are just a few examples, Blurred, Captions and Deleting 2 seconds like what happened on the Chinedu V. Okobi video that was finally released to the Public 5 Months after he was killed by 6 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. The video starts by listing the Involved Deputies it OMMITS CSO Joseph Gonzales you will see him join at 6:47 mark also note 7:02 he is at Chinedu’s head and next time you see him is 7:05 he is down by legs, what happened during those missing 3 seconds. Why was that cut out?
The real question is why did Those Who Matter Omit his name from being Involved.
Ask Showboater David Canepa President of the Board of Supervisors if he ever watched the Video. I asked all of the County Supervisors that question. Supervisor Dave Pine answered he had 3 times, He was the only one.
This next Video is Highly Edited, Captioned and promotes the False story that Sandra Harmon Fired first, there was a Shootout. There is no mention that the Deputy Fired first, Fired at an unarmed woman with her hands up above her head. No Mention she was shot at 14 times, 3 of which were fatal shots in her BACK. No mention the 3 Shell Casings were moved at the Crime scene. and the Best Part is the Deputy did not turn on his Body Worn Camera. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Inspector Jordan Boyd responsible for the Editing and Captions of the Video. San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman is responsible for obstructing the public right to get to the truth. The AXON LOG RECORDS would verify the BWC of Deputy Dominguez was turned off during the Homicide. Why is David Silberman taking that position?
“Those Who Matter” San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe is the source for that term. I remember when I first it, I thought to myself, Steve knows something that most San Mateo County Residents don’t. he was right.
It’s Time for San Mateo County especially Daly City to get on the same page as America is changing. The minimum is to identify the officers involved. The next minimum is to have the Attorney General take over the investigation from Those Who Matter. That will never happen with Daly City’s current Elected Officials and Staff.
City Manager Shawnna Maltbie and Police Chief Patrick Hensley just THINK about that for a few minutes. What would have happened if your four Police Officers didn’t find themselves at a disabled truck with a Flat Tire on April 7, 2021 in a residential neighborhood at 1:55 PM.
Roger Allen would be alive today and hundreds of people would not be protesting and saying Roger Allen’s name along with Shawnna Maltbie’s name.
Roger Allen was not the driver of the parked vehicle, has was sitting in the front passenger seat, when he was shot and killed by one of the FOUR UNNAMED Daly City POLICE OFFICERS.
All San Mateo County Elected Officials and Staff are silent on Roger Allen’s Homicide, Why? The same thing happened with Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide in Millbrae by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. I say Chinedu V. Okobi was SMC’s George Floyd and Sgt David Weidner was SMC’s Derek Chauvin.
Daly City Elected Officials and Staff have chosen to NOT identify the four Involved Police Officers for some unknown reason. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said it’s up to Police Chief Patrick Hensley.
“Making the City of Daly City a safe place to live, work and play.”
The members of our department are highly trained and dedicated to serving our community by maintaining an active and progressive partnership with the citizens, schools and businesses of the City of Daly City.
The City understands that the incident has raised questions in our community.
Daly City is committed to transparency and will provide updates to the community as additional details become available.
If those statements were TRUE, the public would have known the names of the four Daly City Police Officers 20 days ago.
To show the public just how important their concerns and questions about the Homicide of a Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck in afternoon. Tomorrow night Daly City Council Meeting will have Public Comment available as Agenda Item 13. That should put it far enough back to eliminate the majority of the public who had something to say.
I recommend City Manager Shawnna Maltbie call a Special Meeting to handle all of the public comments.
Start it a 6 PM give the speakers 3 minutes not the normal 2 minutes.
It’s been 18 days since Roger Allen a Black man was killed by Daly City Police Officers while sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (flat tire) that nobody called the police for.
At this time in America’s History you would expect at least one of Daly City Elected Officials to make a public comment on this Homicide by DCPD Officers and THAT ONE would be Glenn Sylvester a 33 year Police Officer who has trained Police Officers. Did he ever train Officers to reach inside a vehicle to wrestle a gun from a subject’s hands?
To say the facts are limited is an Understatement. The only thing we do know is that Roger Allen R.I.P is dead and Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley refuses to identify the 4 Involved officers. Roger Allen died less than 8 miles from where Chinedu V. Okobi was killed by 6 San Mateo County Sheriff Employees, A Sergeant, 4 Deputies and a CSO who sprayed O.C. spray into Okobi’s face at close range after he was tased 7 times struck with extended baton, body slammed to the ground from behind and dog-piled by the group where he was handcuffed and stopped breathing. Not one of the Sheriff Employees checked his pulse or provided life saving measures for the next 9 minutes. They wanted to make sure he was dead before the AMR staff got to him. Mission accomplished.
In San Mateo County Nobody is above the Law except “Those Who Matter.”
I would suggest that Councilman Glenn Sylvester rethink why he is on the Daly City Council.
I don’t recall him ever saying one word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide. Chinedu Okobi was killed for “Walking While Black in Millbrae.” No running in and out of traffic, No immediately assaulting the deputy as Sheriff Bolanos claimed. just a large Black man walking on a sidewalk in San Mateo County.
Roger Allen was killed in Daly City for “Sitting in the passenger seat While Black.”
Councilman Glenn Sylvester consider saying “I resign” that would be a step in the right direction.
I have Never thought it was a good idea to have Law Enforcement people become Politicians or County Managers.
Mark D, Melville Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 Got it Right commenting on the fact that all Daly City Elected and Staff refuse to name the 4 Police Officers Involved in Roger Allen’s Homicide. Why?
“There is no reason for the PD to withhold the names of all personnel involved in said incident.”
The Maltbie name and San Mateo County Government go back a long way. Shanna is married to Jeff Maltbie who happens to be the City of San Carlos Manager, Jeff is the son of John Maltbie who was San Mateo County Manager for many years and has personally benefited by being a member of the “Those Who Matter” team. Everyone remembers the April 1993 Prostitution Sting Operation where Sheriff Deputy Trisha Sanchez was the Decoy. District Attorney Jame P. Fox years later when asked why didn’t you prosecute Maltbie he said “That case never crossed my desk.”If there is another family that is more involved in running the government of San Mateo County I’d like to know it. Shanna Maltbie is the City Manager of Daly City, which means she runs Daly City, she has influence on who is hired and fired like Police Chief Patrick Hensley. She easily could instruct Chief Hensley to identify the four Daly City Police Officers who were involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen on April 7, 2021 who was shot and killed while sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (flat tire) on a residential street. According to the very limited (almost No Information) provided by Police Chief Patrick Hensley and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe the Daly City Police made contact with the disabled truck at 1:55 PM and Roger Allen R.I.P. was transported by ambulance from the crime scene at 2:11 PM. That’s Fast, as a matter of fact that might be a San Mateo County Record for AMR if it was AMR. During this 16 minutes a lot of things happened that make a reasonable concerned citizen want answers to. Why were 4 DCPD Officers called to a truck with a flat tire? What are the names of the 4 DCPD Officers Involved? What training policy teaches DCPD Officers to reach inside a parked vehicle and wrestle with a Large Black Man who allegedly was wielding a Fake gun. What is DCPD Policy on shooting into a vehicle when there are other passengers inside? What time were the two shoots fired into the occupied vehicle? What time was AMR requested? What time did AMR arrive on scene? Did AMR treat one of the Police Officers at the Scene? How many minutes did AMR provide life saving measures (Chest Compressions) on Roger Allen before transporting his body? How many minutes did DCPD Officers provide Life saving measures to Roger Allen? What time did that occur?
These are just some of the Question the public now has because of Daly City’s behavior. This could be a very long meeting caused by the Elected Officials and Staff.
Just because somebody says something is true, doesn’t mean that it is.
This is what Shanna Maltbie says about Daly City. If this were true the Names of the 4 Officers would have been made public 17 days ago. Public Comment would be first to follow The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag: “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,”

It’s been 14 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen who was shot and killed in a disabled parked truck on a residential street in your City of Daly City. You have refused to name the four Daly City Police Officers who were on the scene. You have refused to tell your Police Chief Patrick Hensley to provide the names of the Officers involved, Why?
This is not Transparency.
Yesterday x Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found Guilty of all three charges including murder of George Floyd.
Your behavior proves that San Mateo County is NOT Minneapolis. Think about the Black Lives Matter Resolution you signed.
October 3, 2018 San Mateo County’s own George Floyd was Chinedu V. Okobi he was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae. Within hours Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issued a partial list of those involved, he left out one of the most important person the CSO who sprayed O.C. in Chinedu okobi’s face after he had been tased 7 times, struck with extended baton and dog piled by the group.
It says Below is a list of names of San Mateo County Sheriff Office personnel who were involved in the critical incident. That is not true. CSO Joseph Gonzales is not named.
Yesterday in Columbus Ohio, a 16 year old girl was shot and killed by a Police Officer responding to 2 911 calls. The Interim Police Chief has already released the name of the Officer who shot and killed the teenager, He has also released the Body Worn Camera Videos. Congratulations to Columbus Ohio.
It’s been 14 days Daly City Elected Officials.
Release the names of the 4 Daly City Police Officers involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen today.
