From City Manager Bob Nesbit.

RECOMMENDATION:

Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.

There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.

This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.

BACKGROUND:

On May 28, 2021, the City Council received a report from resident David Eblovi entitled The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay. At its June 1, 2021, Council meeting, Council directed staff to agendize an item for the June 15, 2021 meeting to receive a presentation on the report.

DISCUSSION:

Two guest speakers have been invited by Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback to discuss the Report and add their voices to the general conversation about public safety in Half Moon Bay. Dr. Greg Woods will focus comments on ethics and accountability in policing, and Sergeant Carl Tennenbaum SFPD (Ret.), will focus comments on the benefits of civilian responders to low-risk calls. Their bios have been provided to the Council under separate cover and are on file with the City Clerk.

At the beginning of the item, staff recommends that the mayor present protocols and an agenda for how the item will go including approximate times for various sections. The item will conclude with Council deliberation and direction.

ATTACHMENT: The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay

Thank You Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez for getting this Important Conversation on the Agenda. It should have been on in 2014 when Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo Cpinty Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his patrol vehicle. He had ZERO Plan, He Tampered with the Evidence. That is exactly what happened at the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020, NO PLAN and Tampering with the Evidence.

Two Council Members are finally doing what every Elected Official in SMC should have been doing for years.

Mark Melville on Releasing the Axon Log Records.

By Michael G. Stogner

Retired SMC Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville

I recommended the City Council of Half Moon Bay file a lawsuit against Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman because they were the only two people refusing to release the Axon Log Records of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Law Enforcement Incident. I informed the council that Candidate for Sheriff 2022 Mark Melville said he would. They chose not to do that for some reason.

Somebody has asked me, to ask you and I think you have already answered but this is a little different.

When you are elected Sheriff of San Mateo County will you release the Axon Log Records in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide right away.


Thank You

The Axon Log Records would confirm or prove false the Story that the Government has told the public.

SMCC Attorney David Silberman

Why wouldn’t San Mateo County County Counsel Attorney David Silberman want that released?

The Official Story is very different from the Evidence. Several High Ranking Government Officials and Staff are involved in the False Story about the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide on May 5, 2020.

From the Civil Lawsuit: SMCDA Wagstaffe “The Axon Body Worn Camera Logs had NEVER been checked to see if Deputy Dominguez had actually turned the camera on because Deputy Dominguez had been taken at his word on this issue.”

A reasonable person would expect the Sheriff, District Attorney, and County Counsel Attorney to CHECK the Axon Log Records to confirm Deputy Dominguez was telling the truth.

I know for a fact that San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Rick Decker, asked a woman I was assisting, to take a Polygraph Test after she filed Felony Charges against her ex husband who was a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy. She agreed and passed with flying colors.

Nobody asked San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez to take a polygraph test when a woman with mental illness was shot in the back three times all fatal with hollow point bullets.

I found it interesting that the City of Half Moon Bay is being represented in the Civil Lawsuit by San Mateo County Counsel. The same Government Attorneys that are refusing to release the AXON LOG RECORDS. Sounds like a conflict of interest.

If you are a San Mateo County Resident and you believe the AXON LOG RECORDS should be made available to the Public, I recommend that you Vote Mark Melville for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.

I hope Attorney General Rob Bonta is paying attention to “Those Who Matter” in San Mateo County.

Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay.

By Michael G. Stogner

Jimenez-Rarback Report

Tonight the City of Half Moon Bay Council voted 4 to 1 to place the Jimenez-Rarback Report on the June 15, 2021 Meeting Agenda. Harvey Rarback said this is a Beginning of a Conversation. Joaquin Jimenez spoke about safety for the residents of Half Moon Bay. He said it perfectly “if you even think about your safety you are not safe.”

Half Moon Bay is a City that is being forced by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office to discuss having a Police Chief or not.

This is a conversation that is taking place all across America, this is the right time for this. Now it is time for the public to get involved.

It should be noted: Mark Melville Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 has read the Jimenez-Rarback Report and has no objections to it. That means in 12 months the Residents of SMC can have a different Sheriff and that means Half Moon Bay will not need to create a new position of Police Chief.

Half Moon Bay Police Reform Ordinance is Appropriate.

By Michael G. Stogner

City of Half Moon Bay May 18, 2021 Meeting 7:00 PM

Once again the City of Half Moon Bay Council Members are leading San Mateo County Elected Officials & Staff.

The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.

The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.

I asked Mark Melville Candidate for Sheriff 2022 for his opinion, here it is.

First and foremost, Mr. Jiminez is correct in that the public and Council need to meet and discuss what is in the best interest of all city residents, inclusive of public safety services.  I read the proposed ordinance and find it appropriate. There is nothing in the ordinance that prevents the Sheriff’s Office from doing their job. The Council is looking for the betterment of how people are treated once they are in contact with law enforcement, nothing wrong with that. I’m not sure where the Sheriff is coming from when he says the ordinance wouldn’t improve public safety..?  I think the ordinance is actually in favor of policing, in the way the City wants to see it done.  In addition, I believe specific deputies should be assigned to the City for a long period of time. This would allow them to become part of the community and they would clearly understand the community’s expectations. In doing this, it would eliminate the Sheriff’s concern of having deputies working in different jurisdictions operating under different operating procedures.

   
The Sheriff’s statement, “It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract, it’s basically unenforceable,”  which in my opinion is very condescending.  The Sheriff is saying we are going to provide the service to the City the way we see fit, and there is nothing you can do about it, oh until the contract ends in 2022.  In my opinion, the Sheriff should be at the forefront of drafting said ordinance with the city Council, because it’s for the betterment of the community..!!  I’m wishing the City success in achieving the services they desire for their community.  

Every City and Town that receives it’s Law Enforcement Services from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office should be on this ZOOM Meeting Tonight.

Half Moon Bay Police Reform Zoom Meeting May 18, 2021 Item 3D

By Michael G. Stogner

Making Half Moon Bay safe for it’s residents.

Great work Half Moon Bay City Council and Resident David Eblovi, Thank You for leading the entire County in Law Enforcement reform. If it turns out that the only resistance is from Sheriff Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman don’t worry both of those obstacles can be gone with the election of Mark Melville for Sheriff in 2022. That’s 18 months from now.

“It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract,” Bolanos said. “It’s basically unenforceable.”

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos finds those restrictions “problematic” and unenforceable.

Even if the ordinance is approved by the council, it likely wouldn’t have any bearing on the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. Because of the county’s contract with Half Moon Bay, the city can’t legislate changes until the contract is up for renegotiation, Bolanos said. The Sheriff’s Office’s contract with the city doesn’t expire until July 2022

How difficult could it possibly be, HMB has only 2 Deputies on duty per shift.

The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.

The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.

“It’s in our best interest to listen to our community, to see what is going on and if there has to be any kind of changes to make our community safer,” Jimenez said.

While this ordinance would restrict the actions of law enforcement, Rarback believes it would instead give deputies


ORDINANCE NO. C-2021-_______
AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HALF MOON BAY

CALIFORNIA AMENDING CHAPTER 2.33, SPECIFIC POLICING POLICIES

THE CITY COUNCIL OF HALF MOON BAY DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. Findings: The City Council finds and declares as follows:

(a) The municipal code of the City of Half Moon Bay requires periodic updates to reflect current information and changes in law, to provide clarification to the community, and to provide for improved customer service and administration of City business.

(b) Setting a clear understanding for the behavior of law enforcement and peace officers serving the Half Moon Bay community is critical to building and maintaining trust between the community and the City’s law enforcement providers.

(c) Protecting law enforcement officers and the community from undue risk of harm as a result of unnecessary interactions or escalations between armed officers and the public is critical to protecting the public safety of all of Half Moon Bay’s residents, and especially those who may be at statistically high risk of a negative outcome due to mental illness, substance abuse issues, race, housing status, or immigration status.

(d) There is no statutory requirement that the City of Half Moon Bay enforce California Vehicle Code. Therefore the City may, and should, selectively enforce CA Vehicle Code if it results in less pervasive fear or a better standard of living for its people.

(e) It is in the interests of the City of Half Moon Bay for peace officers to have operable and operating video and sound recording devices at all times that they are in public or are engaging in policing activities.

(f) A significant portion of the at-risk population of Half Moon Bay lives in reasonable fear of encounters with law enforcement providers. These fears are justified by the fact that the current law enforcement agency serving greater Half Moon Bay has had numerous recent fatal encounters with individuals who suffered from mental health issues. Therefore, it is in the interests of the public and the officers who serve here to minimize the number and types of such interactions, and when interactions do occur for the City to insure that the interests of all parties are protected to the extent possible.

Section 2. Municipal Code Update (Specific Policing Policies) including revisions to Chapter 2.33 of the Half Moon Bay Municipal Code is adopted as set forth in Exhibit “A” to this Ordinance shown for introduction as deletions in strike through and additions in underline.

Section 3Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council herby declares that it would have passed this Ordinance and adopted this Ordinance and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more section, subsections, sentences, clauses or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.

Section 4Publication. The City Clerk of the City of Half Moon Bay is hereby directed to publish this Ordinance, or the title hereof as a summary, pursuant to Government Code Section 36933, once within fifteen (15) days after its passage in the Half Moon Bay Review, a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Half Moon Bay.

Section 5Effective date. This Ordinance shall take effect and be in force on the thirtieth (30th) day from and after its final passage.

INTRODUCED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Half Moon Bay, California,

Held on the 18th day of May, 2021, by the following vote:
Ayes, Councilmembers: __________________________________
Noes, Councilmembers: __________________________________

Anne Oliva’s Fundraiser for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. was a large well educated Black Man walking on the sidewalk southbound on El Camino Real in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Anne Oliva was a Millbrae City council member that day, and has been Silent all this time. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Bolanos said he was. He did Not Immediately assault Sheriff Deputy Wang after exiting his patrol vehicle like Sheriff Bolanos said he was.

Chinedu V. Okobi was San Mateo County’s George Floyd.

Anne Oliva

How can anybody support Law Enforcement in San Mateo County that Lies to the Public? Ask Anne Oliva

No mention of being tased 7 times and the weight of 6 bodies on top of Chinedu Okobi, O.C. spray to face. Okobi was dead on El Camino in Millbrae the day. Bolanos knew all of this when he issued this Release.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos leaves out one name. CSO Joseph Gonzales the 6th Sheriff Employee Involved. Why?

It’s not surprising that San Mateo County Community Leaders support this Dishonest behavior. The question is Why?

Welcome to San Mateo County

SAL “Building the bond between cops and kids.” A bad Idea.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Elected Officials and Staff aka “Those Who Matter” have always shown the ability to ignore the Obvious.

Notice the date of this announcement. June 8, 2020 less than 120 days after Barbara Bonilla is REMOVED.

Bond between Sheriff Deputies and Kids

I was the first reporter to report Barbara Bonilla was gone. How is that possible look at how many Elected Officials, Staff, and Community Members knew she was gone and why?

SMCN.com Feb. 28, 2020 Article

Does anybody really think it is a good idea to have children bonding with an Organization that is top heavy (45) men who share Porn and Violent Rape Videos on San Mateo County Computers at the Sheriff’s Office. I don’t

Sheriff Bolanos finally has a Plan. Now stop lying on your Press Releases, and Police Reports.

By Michael G. Stogner

Daly City Council and City Manager Shawnna Maltbie What are YOU doing? Roger Allen Homicide by DCPD.

Thank You Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for finally not Killing a man in San Carlos the other day. What brought your deputies to him in the first place? It seems like he knew his rights and your deputies finally did the right thing and left him alone. It’s a shame you chose not to do that before now.

Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P. June 3, 2014 would be alive today if you had a plan.

Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. October 3, 2018 would be alive today if you had a plan.

Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. May 5, 2020 would be alive today if you had a plan.

Sheriff”s Office Press Release

NEWS RELEASE Incident Date and Time: April 30, 2021 @ 2:26 pm

Location: 500 block of Quarry Road, San Carlos Summary: Deputies Added ECIT Resources and Training has Positive Outcome in

Disengagement of Person in Crisis During Welfare Check.

On Friday, April 30, 2021, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 500 block of Quarry Road in San Carlos to conduct a welfare check on an individual who was reported as possibly experiencing a mental health crisis. While enroute, deputies learned the subject was also in possession of a knife. Deputies staged a safe distance away and made phone contact with several parties at the scene, including the individual’s social worker.

Deputies learned the individual did not make any threats, commit any crimes, and no one was being held against their will. The individual had no interest in speaking with his social worker
in person or with deputies on the phone. Approximately one hour after arriving on scene, deputies determined it was in everyone’s best interest that they disengage and leave the scene without forcing contact with the individual. Deputies followed-up with the individuals social worker the following day and learned the individual had stabilized and was no longer experiencing a mental health crisis.

This response highlights the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s Enhanced Crisis Intervention Training program (ECIT) and how our crisis response has aligned with recent law changes (California AB-392) as well as community expectations. Unless there is imminent danger or threats to others, deputies will conduct pre-assessments, gather as much information as possible, and form a plan for de-escalation prior to attempting contact with individual in crisis.

We understand the mere presence of uniformed deputies can escalate situations, and we will utilize time and distance whenever possible to assess the best course of action for each situation. In cases like this, by modifying our response and not making immediate contact to check the welfare of an individual in crisis, we maintain the option to disengage, which in some cases, provides the individual the opportunity to self-de-escalate.

In many cases where mental illness is involved, crisis communication and verbal de-escalation can prove to be challenging because their disability may affect their ability to understand or comply with commands from deputies. For this reason, disengagement in these cases is sometimes the best de- escalation option. Deputies can then refer the case to the Sheriff’s Office Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, who will then form a plan to contact the subject at a later time if appropriate, to assess for resources.

What was SMC Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez’s Discipline?

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester and SMCSO Chief Saul Lopez do to make sure the Official Government Statement from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos his Public Information Officer Rosemary Blankswade, Lieutenant Stephanie Josephson and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe “Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez did Not turn on his Body Worn Camera,” was in fact a TRUE Statement?

The sad answer is very little. The question is Why? Why aren’t they as interested as Concerned Citizens?

It’s really SIMPLE, the AXON LOG RECORDS will verify the Government’s official statement. Who is obstructing the release of the AXON LOG RECORDS? Answer San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman. Why?

SMCCC Attorney David Silberman

Updated Sheriff Office News Release

No mention of the Policy BWC Violation, The Governments claim that the Body Worn Camera was not turned on.

“Harmon fired at the first deputy on the scene.” What evidence is there to verify this statement?

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Video

Below the Video created by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos that was made public 41 days after the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon this False statement is made, The incident involved a woman, armed with a shotgun, who fired at a deputy. When did she fire? Where was she when this occurred? How many shots did she fire?

There is no mention of the Three Fatal Shots into Sandra’s back, the fact that she was shot at while unarmed and hands were above her head while her back was facing Deputy Dominguez, or the fact that Three shell casings were moved to support the governments official story.

A reasonable person would know that those are important facts the public should have been told by Sheriff Bolanos.

“Our goal in releasing these videos, while still early in the investigation, is to provide our community with as much information as possible when we have a tragic incident such as this,” Bolanos said.

Is that a true/honest statement? Remember the Video was released 41 days after Sandra L. Harmon was killed.
