Sandra L. Harmon, Andres Gaurdado both Shot in Back with Hands up.

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.

Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.

In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.

The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.

They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.

They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.

The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.

Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.

San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.

David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?

Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.

The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.

After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.

Robert Foucrault Is No Jonathan Lucas.

By Michael G. Stogner

Los Angeles County Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner Jonathan Lucas has announced he is Conducting an Independent Inquest into shooting death by a Sheriff Deputy of 18 year old Andres Guardado. He was shot in the Back 5 times.

Sandra Lee Harmon was shot and killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. She was shot 3 times in the back all 3 shots were fatal. She was shot a total of 8 times out of the 14 shots fired by the two deputies. Deputy Dominguez fired 11 shots and Deputy Baba fired 3 shots. If you add 11 plus 3 you will get a total of 14 shots fired.

During the Special Meeting Half Moon Bay City Council held on September 15, 2020 District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said 11 shots were fired. That is a BIG Difference. What would make him say that obvious False statement. At the 50:47 Mark “We did find 11 Casings” “We found 11 shots and 11 casings and that is exactly, I think that confirms where we were.””That is the answer to that.”

That statement all by itself should be reason enough for the Attorney General of the State of California to open an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

Back to the title of this article. I have personally received an official copy of the Coroner’s Report of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide. Missing from it was the Diagram of the bullet strikes to the body. Normally I wouldn’t care about this document missing especially since the Report states 3 Fatal Shots to the back. It wasn’t until District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe made a couple of Bizarre statements about Ms. Harmon being shot in the back especially since the Video that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provided the public shows her being fired at while she is Unarmed with her hands above her head and her back to Deputy Dominguez which is an illegal act. He ignores that fact, and says, “I do not believe that to be the case.”

Why do we allow the District Attorney to say “He Believes” something, instead of What does the Evidence Prove?

HMBCC Special Meeting 9/15/2020

Update December 1, 2020 The Deputies refuse to Testify

Sheriff’s officials won’t testify in inquest
Deputies, detectives take the 5th in the inquiry into Andres Guardado’s death.
THE KILLING of Andres Guardado inflamed tensions. Above, deputies at a protest in August at the home of the deputy who shot and killed Guardado. (Dania Maxwell Los Angeles Times)
By Alene Tchekmedyian
Four Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials are refusing to testify in the coroner’s inquest into the deputy shooting death of Andres Guardado, invoking their 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination even though none of them have been accused of a crime.
Deputies Miguel Vega, who opened fire, and his partner Chris Hernandez, as well as two homicide detectives investigating the case, have indicated they will not answer questions about what led up to the shooting of the 18-year-old Guardado, who was shot five times in the back in an incident that generated weeks of large protests.
A Sheriff’s Department spokesman said each person made the decision on the advice of his legal counsel, not at the direction of Sheriff Alex Villanueva. Legal experts said the move shows a refusal by the Sheriff’s Department to cooperate in a proceeding that Villanueva dismissed in a radio interview last month as a circus stunt.
“I’m sure what they’re thinking is, ‘We don’t know where this is headed. We don’t know who this is going to target. We don’t know if they’re going to claim there’s some kind of cover-up. We don’t know enough not to assert our 5th Amendment right,’ ” said Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson, who was not surprised by the move. “I think you can take it for what it is: No one is volunteering from that sheriff’s office to cooperate in that inquiry.”
She added: “It was clearly coordinated. It was clearly designed to protect them, and to make it more difficult to make findings that could be used against them or others.”
Mike Gennaco, a policing expert who used to oversee the Sheriff’s Department, said he was surprised that the two homicide investigators would not testify.
“I find that remarkable and disappointing,” Gennaco said. “They were fact-finders, and there’s no allegation that there was some sort of conspiracy to cover up the facts.”
The coroner’s inquest, the first of its kind in nearly 30 years, was being conducted Monday so a hearing officer, retired Judge Candace Cooper, could determine the cause and manner of death. The coroner’s office has already determined that Guardado died by homicide on June 18 when he was shot five times in the back. The official autopsy report, released in July, determined that all five gunshot wounds were fatal.
Still, the coroner’s office said it ordered up the inquest for an independent review of the findings in the highly scrutinized case “in the interest of public transparency.” The hearing came amid heightened tensions between Villanueva and county officials who accuse him of stonewalling oversight and rebuffing efforts to hold him accountable.
Four witnesses did testify in the morning: the medical examiner who performed the autopsy, a coroner’s investigator who responded to the scene and wrote a summary of the incident, and two firefighters who tried to save Guardado’s life. They answered questions from county attorneys, offering a glimpse into the aftermath of the shooting that the public normally wouldn’t get until a civil or criminal trial.
Kevin Young, a deputy medical examiner, testified that the location of the bullet wounds indicated Guardado had his back to the gun when he was shot, and that he could have been on his knees or lying prone on the ground.
Young said Guardado would have been able to move his hands and arms after he was struck by the first gunshot.
A journalist with L.A. Taco who interviewed a witness whom county officials couldn’t locate and the forensic pathologist who conducted a private autopsy for Guardado’s family testified in the afternoon. In video interviews, the witness told the journalist that Guardado was on his knees with his hands behind his head when he was shot.
The coroner’s office subpoenaed investigative documents from the Sheriff’s Department, which provided them to the hearing officer under seal. Before making her findings, Cooper will also review the department’s earlier news briefings on the shooting investigation.
Cooper said she wouldn’t make a finding Monday and adjourned the hearing, leaving open the possibility of calling more witnesses. It’s unclear when the proceedings will resume, or if there will be an effort to compel the four sheriff’s officials to testify.
Not much of what was presented publicly Monday was new.
Lt. John Satterfield, a Sheriff’s Department spokesman, said the “overwhelming majority” of information presented Monday came from a briefing the Sheriff’s Department held months ago. “If +90% of what was learned today…was (publicly) actually released by the sheriff months ago, how is he stonewalling accountability?” he said in a text.
The inquest was recommended by the Board of Supervisors earlier this year amid nationwide protests over police brutality, with Guardado’s shooting reigniting calls for accountability and transparency within the department.

x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, in Court today.

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

I can’t think of a more Important Story to write about on this day. Sure there are many other subjects like who is going to be the President of the United States of America. Let me tell you why I choose to write about former Deputy Juan P. Lopez on this day.

For me there is no more Important subject in San Mateo County than Corruption, and Abuse of Authority and Office.

I was on the phone with Juan Lopez when he was Arrested with guns to his head Six Years ago. That’s right I said Six Years ago.

Zain Jaffer

Zain Jaffer was Arrested for Attempted Murder and 6 Felonies. His Criminal case went through the San Mateo County Justice System in less than 9 months, and that included the Preliminary Hearing where all charges were approved by the Evidence and Testimony presented in Court. The Attempted Murder Charge was never charged by the District Attorney’s Office for some reason. Arrested October 15, 2017 DISMISSED July 2,2018.

I was hoping to hear from Zain Jaffer by now to share with him some cases of abuse by the District Attorney’s Office, Wrongfully Charged, Over Charged etc. As he claimed he was interested in helping now that he knew how it felt to be Wrongfully Charged. Per his prepared statement made July 2, 2018. Matthews Craves, Vincent Valencia, and of course Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez are just a few of the many cases I can think of.

SMCSO Sergeant Michael Otte

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte who worked in Half Moon Bay Patrol Committed Perjury in Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom, He was on the Witness Stand under oath and he lied about videoing with his cellphone the arrest of a female Half Moon Bay Resident. The Judge, Sheriff Office, District Attorney’s Office, and David Silberman of the San Mateo Counsel were and still are aware of the PERJURY. Sergeant Michael Otte was never charged as a matter of fact Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos not only allowed him to retire he gave him a retirement send off.

SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aguino

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino Arrested by Redwood City Police Department for DUI. RWCPD has two Daily Activity Log records. His arrest was not made public. I was the first to report it.

Lt. Kristina Bell

San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Kristina Bell 911 Domestic Violence Call to her residence by her partner, Redwood City Police at her home for hours. No ARREST made. Violation of San Mateo County Domestic Violence Policy. This response by RWCPD was not made public by the Police Department. I was the first to report it.

Barbara Bonilla

San Mateo County Sheriff Employee Barbara Bonilla who was the Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League was escorted out of her office on Feb. 10, 2020, She has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office which is a Big Deal, She has been removed from the State PAL and Federal PAL Boards. The Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Justice have and are Investigating her for Embezzlement and Laundering of SAL Funds. She has not been charged with any crime yet. That’s 10 months of a “Those Who Matter” person not being charged by the DOJ. That is longer than the Zain Jaffer case from Arrest to DISSMISSAL. I was the first to report it.

The Department of Justice has received a letter from the City of Half Moon Bay requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. This is a Historical Request by a City Council and it is Very Healthy to question Authority especially when so many False statements by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe were made to the Public.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon recently received a Distinguished Medal from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. I have publicly stated and written about Sergeant Jason Peardon being a Brady Officer. The City of Belmont has finally provided the Court with the documents that Juan Lopez’s attorney had to sue them to provide. He will be on the Witness stand in the Juan P. Lopez Criminal Trial hopefully going before a JURY soon.

Some of you know I have been recommending an AUDIT of the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Coroner’s Office, Private Defender Program etc. Audits are the easiest way to assure honesty in the performance of these offices San Mateo County.

San Mateo County has no Print Media interested in providing this information.

Please follow the Deputy Sheriff Juan P. Lopez case. November 16, 2020 set for Jury Trial, I’ll update. Remember if they can do this to a Sheriff Deputy they can do this to YOU.

Thank You

HMB Letter to A. G. for Sandra L. Harmon case.

September 23, 2020

Via E-mail Delivery

The Honorable Xavier Becerra Attorney General of California Office of the Attorney General 1300 I Street

Sacramento, California 95814-2912
c/o Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair (Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov)

Re: Request to Conduct Review/Independent Investigation of Officer-involved Shooting of Sandra Harmon

Dear Mr. Becerra:

The City of Half Moon Bay is requesting that your office review and as appropriate conduct an independent criminal investigation into the shooting death of 56-year- old Sandra Harmon. Ms. Harmon was shot and killed on May 5, 2020, by deputies of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office in downtown Half Moon Bay. The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office investigated the incident and issued a corresponding report, which concludedthat the deputies’ actions were lawful.

District Attorney Wagstaffe kindly presented the results of his investigation at the September 15, 2020 City Council meeting. At that meeting, members of the community expressed concerns about the testimony given by the deputies and the report’s conclusion that the deputies’ use of deadly force was warranted. Accordingly, the City Council voted unanimously on September 15, 2020 to seek review and as appropriate a full investigation of the incident by your office. This letter is being transmitted along with public comment received at the September 15, 2020 City Council meeting and September 23, 2020 Public Safety Subcommittee meeting.

On the evening of the shooting, the two deputies involved responded to a 911 call regarding a woman, later identified as Ms. Harmon, walking through downtown Half Moon Bay carrying a shotgun and a bottle of alcohol. After interviewing the witness who made the 911 call, one deputy tracked Ms. Harmon to a parked RV in a nearby parking lot. According to the District Attorney’s report, Ms. Harmon initially exited the RV unarmed, but moments later reentered and reemerged with the shotgun. The deputy took cover behind his vehicle, at which point Ms. Harmon allegedly fired her shotgun in his direction. Over the course of the next minute, the deputy fired 11 rounds at Ms. Harmon, in two separate “volleys.” In the meantime, the second deputy arrived on the scene, responding to the first deputy’s call for assistance. The second deputy fired 3 additional rounds at Ms. Harmon, concurrent with the first deputy’s second “volley.” Although the second deputy on the scene and the paramedics attempted to resuscitate her, Ms. Harmon was pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.

Body camera data of the entire incident, including the initial confrontation of Ms. Harmon, is not available. Without footage from his camera, community members have noted challenges with corroborating the deputy’s version of the incident. Public comments to Council also asked why the two deputies could not subdue Ms. Harmon without resorting to deadly force. See Enclosures.

These open questions make it difficult for the Half Moon Bay community to heal from this tragic event. And as you might imagine, these concerns are especially relevant and pressing in light of the current nation-wide public demand for police accountability and scrutiny of the use of excessive force. The City thus seeks review by your office to ensure that all facts are considered.

This letter was reviewed and approved on September 23, 2020 by the City Council Public Safety Subcommittee. If you have any questions, please to do not hesitate to contact Bob Nisbet, City Manager (bnisbet@hmbcity.com) or Catherine Engberg, City Attorney (cengberg@hmbcity.com) for additional information.

Sincerely,

Bob Nisbet, City Manager Catherine C. Engberg, City Attorney Enclosures:

Thank You San Mateo Daily Journal. Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

By, Michael G. Stogner

Just because Somebody says something is true does not mean that it is.

The same is true for Captions on a Video released 40 days later.

At -9:06 you will see Deputy Dominguez Body Worn Camera working perfectly well great Resolution and Audio.

-5:11 Caption says “Deputy Dominguez Attempted contact at the Motorhome for potential witnesses.” Why is he looking for more witnesses? It goes on to say, “But instead encountered Ms. Harmon.”

-4:59 Caption: With the fast moving situation with incoming fire, Deputy Dominguez did not activate his Body Worn Camera.

The caption wording “With Incoming Fire.” Implys as fact that Sandra Harmon fired first.

“After Discharging his Service Weapon Ms. Harmon dropped the Shotgun.” That would be before Deputy Baba gets out of his car.

So Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer and several others were involved in producing this Video in the San Mateo Daily Journal Article. Here it is.

SMDJ Article

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not include the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held on September 15, 2020 by ZOOM.

In this video you will see the the first 3 public speakers presenting the Oblovi Investigation at the 27:15 mark clearly providing evidence that came from the SMC Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, it shows Tampering with Evidence 3 shell casings. a Bullet found in the side of a building, They say Sheriff Deputy Dominguez fired three shots at Sandra Harmon FIRST.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe does not address the Tampering with Evidence issue, the bullet found that none of the SMC Crime Scene staff found. or that Deputy Dominguez fired First. He simple deflected and said shell casing get moved around kicked etc all the time.

The San Mateo Daily Journal did not mention that fact. I am thankful the SMDJ has finally produced a story where the public can make comments on they used to have a Community Forum for the residents to communicate with each other.

The AXON Log Records have all the data the public needs, you don’t need to rely on Sheriff Bolanos to say something on a video. To this day and for the last 5 months we only have Words and Captions that Sheriff Deputy turned off his Body Worn Camera. The AXON Log Records have been requested multiple times by HMB Resident John Ullom, and myself. The San Mateo County Counsel and the D.A.’s is refusing to provide them even though Steve Wagstaffe told the Council he has No Objection. The FIVE HMB City Council Members should have the City Attorney make the request of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos personally. Forget the SMC Counsel. This investigation is a closed matter as far as the District Attorney Office is concerned.

Video September 15, 2020 HMB Special Meeting

Please remember, Words and Captions are not Evidence,

AXON Log Records lets get them, for the family of Sandra Harmon and all of San Mateo Residents.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. “We Just Don’t Know”

By Michael G. Stogner

September 15, 2020 City of Half Moon Bay 6 PM Special Meeting by ZOOM.

District Attorney said “We Just don’t Know.”

That was his answer to Who fired first. You would expect he of all people would know EXACTLY who fired first. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade and many others have all said Sandra L. Harmon fired her Shotgun at Deputy Dominguez first.

Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

The Same is true for CAPTIONS, below photo is a perfect example. “Harmon appeared to hold her arms up.” The fact is the photo shows she is Unarmed and her hands a clearly above her Head. It goes on {appeared to extend both middle fingers at involved Deputy Baba. There is ZERO mention of the Five Shots being fired at her at this very moment.

A good question for the City Managers and Council to ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, PIO Rosemerry Blankswade, and Captain Saul Lopez is What are the names of every person involved in the Wordcrafting of the Captions in this video.

The footage from deputy Dominguez’s body camera, which was turned off in what was reportedly a moment of oversight. What does that even mean?

The AXON INC. Log records will tell the Public if and when Deputy Dominguez actually turned off his Body Worn Camera. At this moment we only have Words and Captions by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, his PIO, Steve Wagstaffe etc. No Evidence

This is from the HMBR article September 16, 2020 by Vanessa Ochavillo. “There were three volleys of shots fired, Wagstaffe explained. And while he was fairly confident about the course of events on the second and third volleys, the first remains a mystery. The footage from deputy Dominguez’s body camera, which was turned off in what was reportedly a moment of oversight, could have helped answer the question of who fired first.”

“We just don’t know,” he said.

If you don’t know who fired first, and you don’t know if Sandra L. Harmon fired any shot or shots at all, this has gone from a Shootout to possibly an Execution. Not one Shotgun Pellet recovered for the Crime Scene.The Family and Residents of San Mateo County deserve to know the truth.

That is exactly why the Attorney General of the State of California must Investigate this Homicide.

Evidence vs. Words/Captions.

By Michael G. Stogner

September 15, 2020 Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 in favor of contacting the Attorney General of the State of California to request an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon In-Custody Death by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the Zoom meeting and explained his findings that the Deputies behavior was lawful.

Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

The public and especially elected officials want to believe Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankeswade, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, and several Attorneys at the SMC County Counsel Office. The idea that they would deliberately mislead the public is just to much for the average citizen/resident to deal with.

I would offer the x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case (6 years this November) as a perfect example of what they are capable of doing.

Last night during the public comment time members of the public were able to communicate what they have discovered with their very limited resources. Here are just a few of the take aways.

There is no Evidence of a Shootout.

There is no Evidence the District Attorneys Office has that Sandra L. Harmon fired the Shotgun at all.

Not one Shotgun Pellet was recovered from the Crime Scene the night of May 5, 2020. Thats with over 30 people at the crime scene that night. No damage to the Patrol Vehicle just feet away, or damage anywhere for that matter.

There is no Evidence (yet) that Sheriff Deputy Dominguez turned off his AXON Body Worn Camera. Simply words and captions that he did. The AXON Log File which to this day has not been made available to the public.

Congratulations to the entire Half Moon Bay City Council for last nights vote. This is a Great first step in Oversight of Law Enforcement in San Mateo County. I was Grateful to hear Yanira Serrano-Garcia’s name mentioned last night her case and Sandra Harmon case have many similarities of misleading and false statements by Law Enforcement.

I would recommend the City Council of Millbrae do the same for the Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. It’s not to late. Look at what they didn’t do for 9 minutes after they sat him up on El Camino Real.

Adam Eisen the Mayor of Half Moon Bay should have already suspended or demanded the suspension of Sheriff Deputy Dominguez, for firing 5 shots at close range at Sandra L. Harmon an unarmed civilian with her hands up above her head. May 5, 2020 She was shot 8 times 3 shots to the back were fatal. She died at the scene. Since May 5, 2020 Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade, San Mateo County District Attorney Office and San Mateo County Counsel have all misled the Mayor and the Public as to what really happened at 845 Main Street in HMB that night.

San Mateo County could use more elected officials like Mayor Lovely Warren.

Mayor Eison should have already followed the lead of ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren.

ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren suspended 7 police officers in the Daniel Reil Prude Homicide, who said she was misled for months about the circumstances of the fatal encounter.. and she was taking the action against the advice of attorneys.

September 15, 2020 the City of Half Moon Bay is having its meeting and San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe will be talking about his 12 page letter to Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos where he found no crime had occurred so no charges against the two Sheriff Deputies involved.

So basically City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy Manager Matthew Chidester decided to meet with Steve Wagstaffe to discuss my 2 emails to Bob Nesbit recommending he contact the Attorney General or the D.O.J. to have them conduct an investigation into the Homicide by SMC Sheriff Employees of Sandra L. Harmon.

The meeting will be on Zoom and the Public is invited to ask District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe questions.

Law Enforcement said there was a Shoot Out and Sandra L. Harmon fired first. She had a Shotgun, GSR test did not confirm she fired the Shotgun. Nobody saw her fire the shotgun. Shotgun was found with two spent shells nobody smelled the shotgun. I have asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade how many Shotgun Pellets were recovered from the scene they have refused to answer my question.

Hello Sheriff Bolanos and PIO Blankswade,
Now that the Investigation is complete by the District Attorney’s Office 
Can you tell me the total number of Shotgun Pellets that were recovered on May 5, 2020 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay.

Thank You

Remember the ROCHESTER, N.Y Mayor Lovely Warren was misled for months about the circumstances of the fatal encounter.. and she was taking the action against the advice of attorneys.

San Mateo County Sheriff S.A.L. xExecutive Director Barbara Bonilla Embezzlement Investigation is still ongoing.

Barbara Bonilla

During the City of Half Moon Bay Special Meeting held September 1, 2020, San Mateo County Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez gave his annual report to the Council. Part of his report included the Sheriff Activities League and all the efforts his Deputies had accomplished and how many children and families were impacted. After his presentation Councilman Harvey Rarback asked probably the most important question of the entire meeting. He asked Captain Saul Lopez if he could comment on the SAL financial situation?

San Mateo County Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez

That situation would be the DOJ Embezzlement and Laundering Investigation of Barbara Bonilla that has been going on for a long time. I was the only reporter to write about it on February 28, 2020 and at that time I could only report that Barbara Bonilla was escorted out of her office and was on administrative leave. Since that time we know she has quit the SMC Sheriff’s Office, which I still don’t know why, has been removed from the State & National PAL Organizations. To this day she has not been charged with any crime. I now know thanks to Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez that that Investigation by the Department of Justice is ongoing and he informed the council he was unable to comment on the subject.

My question to the Half Moon Bay City Council and the City Manager is this, What was the first date that Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez informed you that the Top Executive for the San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League was removed from her office and there is an Investigation ongoing. Was it before my article February 28, 2020? Did he ever report it to you?

The meeting also pointed out exactly how our system works, SAL interacts with children teaching them important life lessons and when one of the adults gets caught, the children learn how the system really works, the adults keep quiet, nobody talks about it. The entire council should put this subject on the agenda. Ask Captain Saul Lopez what did he know and when did he know it?
