Kevin Mullin didn’t say a word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by 6 SMC Employees.

By Michael G. Stogner

Kevin Mullin did not attend or make a public comment at any of the many meetings the Board of Supervisors made available to the public to discuss, Excessive Use of Tasers, Excessive Use of Force, Failure to provide Medical Aid after killing Chinedu Okobi. He did not attend any of the many Concerned Citizens gatherings at the killing site in Millbrae/San Bruno.

Chinedu V. Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by Law Enforcement. Both of the Deaths were ruled a Homicide by the local Coroner. The Four Officers responsible for George Floyd’s Homicide were fired and Criminally Charged. The Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees who are responsible for Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide are all working and None of them have been criminally charged with anything.

Here is Kevin’s PR piece on voting. You will notice he can’t even mention George Floyd’s Name. “most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement.” That could be Hundreds of young Black/Brown Men around America.

I can say this as a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 22 years Kevin Mullin is the norm for Elected Officials in SMC.

I know of only one San Mateo County Elected Official that Publicly Questioned, was Chinedu V. Okobi Murdered. That should have been the Obvious question every single elected official should want the answer to.

Sabrina Brennan was that Elected Official. She attended meetings and gatherings.

 

America is confronting an unprecedented “trifecta” that is dominating our daily headlines: A COVID-19 pandemic, a deep recession and most recently the murder of an unarmed black man by law enforcement, illustrative of systemic racism and injustice that has spawned a season of multiracial protests and calls for needed social change. Yet, while the nation is reeling from these crises, duplicitous messaging is being deployed by the occupant of the Oval Office to actively undermine the results of this November’s election: that voting by mail can’t be trusted, that widespread voter fraud exists, and that mail balloting is designed specifically to elect his opponent: FALSE.

Since 2000, more than 250 million votes have been cast via mailed ballots, in all 50 states, according to the Vote at Home Institute with only a handful of fraudulent votes cast. Election law expert and U.C. Irvine professor Richard L. Hasen notes, it is still more likely for an American to be struck by lightning than to commit mail-voting fraud. In addition, there is no evidence to suggest that voting by mail benefits any particular political party.

San Mateo County has shown that voting-by-mail works. My legislation to make San Mateo County an all-mail ballot pilot county demonstrated that the participating electorate more closely resembles the public at large in terms of its diversity and representation, with young people, and voters of color in particular more likely to cast ballots. Thanks to my colleague, Assemblyman Marc Berman’s legislation recently signed into law, this November’s election in California will be an all-mailed-ballot election. Every voter automatically will receive a ballot, postage paid, with community-level “vote centers” as back-up. Voting by mail is the most efficient and effective way to conduct an inclusive and participatory election.

So-called “red and blue” states alike have employed voting-by-mail, but the way states have approached elections administration varies greatly. Elections are fundamentally state and locally administered, and recent examples of mismanagement during primary elections in Wisconsin and Georgia remind us of the challenges facing election administrators across the country. This is a highly charged political atmosphere with huge stakes on the line.

There is a growing recognition that the pandemic must force changes in how elections work, and better ensure more participation moving forward. Attempts to help fund elections with federal dollars have fallen woefully short of what is needed to ensure free and fair elections across America. Since the Bush-Gore contested election in 2000, the efficacy of voting mechanisms and machinery have taken center stage. More recently, we are seeing a coordinated misinformation campaign to attack the integrity of, and undermine the public’s faith in, our elections. False narratives abound, and voter suppression, which disproportionally disenfranchises communities of color, is real and we all suffer the consequences as a result.

While voting-by-mail works, it is not perfect. Signature-matching issues have led to ballots not being counted, a concern that is actively being addressed in California. One other legitimate drawback to voting at home is the time it takes local elections’ officials to count waves of mail ballots and certify the election. The current administration is preemptively trying to undermine faith in the eventual vote count and may try to exploit delays in vote tabulation to question the legitimacy of results, triggering a constitutional crisis. While the long wait for vote-by-mail results is not ideal, it’s in the interest of every vote being counted, which is fundamental to our democracy.

During this tense time when we need leaders who can calm, heal, and build faith, the president has used this period to further divide people and incite violence, all while callously attacking the basic underpinnings of our democracy, like faith in and respect for the work of journalists — essentially a broadside on the First Amendment. The work of journalists and the social media platforms themselves have never been more important in fact checking false claims and advertisements with false information.

Vote as if democracy itself, and its pillars like a free press, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, including the right of every citizen to vote, is on the ballot. Because it is.

 

Kevin Mullin, D-South San Francisco, is speaker pro tempore of the California Assembly and represents San Mateo County’s 22nd Assembly District.

I asked San Mateo County Citizen Advocate Brent Turner for comment on Kevin Mullin Opinion Piece.

Brent Turner

The VOTE BY MAIL  act  is  innocuous to the degree that it reiterates voting by mail procedures. We have used absentee ballots for many years. What is NOT innocuous is the removal of polling places from communities of color. Though Mindy Romero and other experts have declined to state it clearly,  the added travel distance to some of these community residents results in a veritable “poll tax ” and leads to further disenfranchisement, . Subjective signature disqualification also creates opportunity for disenfranchisement and was predicted by election experts

The bill originally emanated from the ” Colorado Model ”  of elections and was  promulgated by Colorado based vendor DOMINION  The act is notorious not for what it mandates but what it ignores. The fact there is ZERO mention of the software used to tabulate the votes creates a severe point of misdirection to the layperson voter.  This is unfortunate as the authors of the bill positioned it as a security measure when this  is not the case. The authors were briefed extensively but chose to omit the work of the open source software security experts.

ALL Half Moon Bay Beaches Closed

By Michael G. Stogner

BEACHES CLOSED Stay Home, Wear Masks, Saves Lives 

Half Moon Bay Beaches will open 9:00 AM July 6, 2020

July 2 UPDATE – City and State Beaches & Parking Lots in HMB to be Closed for 4th of July Weekend

This updates the previous news release on beach closures. All beaches within the City will be closed Friday – Sunday due to COVID-19 risk. This now includes Half Moon Bay State Beach. These are complete closures and apply to all residents and visitors.

July 2, 2020 – As a temporary public health safety measure to reduce the density of visitors over the 4th of July holiday weekend, all beaches and their parking areas in Half Moon Bay will be closed to everyone, for the weekend. Additionally, a portion of the Coastal Trail between Seymour Bridge and Kelly Avenue will be closed for that same period.

This update of the City’s previous notice of beach closures (below) now includes that beach access for Half Moon Bay State Beach (Francis Campground/Kelly Avenue, Venice Boulevard, and Young Avenue) will be closed as well. Yesterday, we announced the State Beach parking areas will be closed and that all access points to City beaches and their parking lots will also be closed. With today’s addition of access points to the State Beach, these are now full and complete closures of the beaches, and a section of the Coastal Trail, to all residents and visitors. 

The closure begins at sunrise on Friday, July 3, and ends at 9:00 AM on Monday, July 6.

The order to close City beaches, parking lots, and a portion of the Coastal Trail was signed by the City Manager under his authority based on the City’s emergency declaration. 

This action is being taken to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Spread of the virus is greatly intensified when large crowds gather, especially if face covering and social distancing regulations are not followed.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies will be present at closed beaches and coastal trail sections to enforce applicable local ordinances and state laws. City staff will be at beach entrance points to advise visitors of the closures. Changeable electronic message boards will be placed on various roadways to notify motorists of the closures.

Pandemic, Stay Home 4th of July.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Beaches are like a Magnet, Now is not the time to enjoy them.Protect the residents from Pacifica to Pescadero. Tell everyone to stay home.

Stay Home, Wear a Mask, Protect All County Health Officers, Doctors, Nurses, Medical Staff, Firefighters, Police Officers, Store Clerks. The time to open up is when they say they feel safe and have all the PPE to do their jobs safely. SMC has never been there yet.

San Mateo County has a chance to show the WORLD they know what the word Pandemic means. Show the World that you take your Health and their Health threat seriously. You can’t blame other Countries for considering the Banning of Americans to travel, Who in their right mind would let us in.

pan·dem·ic
/panˈdemik/
adjective
  1. (of a disease) prevalent over a whole country or the world.

Political Interest have never been the same as Medical Interest. YOU are responsible for your Health and those you Love and Respect.

San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow is the one and only person I recommend you seek medical PANDEMIC advice from.

Here are some comments from Healt Officials from LATIMES article today.

“Every single one of those county health officers faces an impossible set of circumstances,” said David Relman, a Stanford doctor.

“Our professionalism is being exploited.” nurses at one hospital have gone on strike to protest what they say is understaffing and a lack of protective gear.

It has left some medical experts to warn the state is not experiencing a second wave, but a failure to maintain the flattened curve of the first one.

If the spread isn’t stopped soon, they warn, it may become impossible.

“It could get to some point where there literally is just too much disease to manage,” Relman said.

“I’m not sure why everyone is so surprised that we’re surging again. It never went away, and we opened up” while mask wearing was being “politicized,” the physician said, calling it “very frustrating.”

“It leaves us feeling in like we’re not enough,” McIntosh said. “I feel like this is all setting us up to fail.”

San Mateo County Residents show the world that you are Serious Citizens.

Stay Home, Wear Masks.

Menlo Park Police Chief Quits during council meeting.

By Michael G. Stogner

MPPD Chief Dave Bertini

Update: from Almanac Twitter During a town hall meeting Thursday evening to discuss policing in #MenloPark, Housing Commissioner Karen Grove said she’d heard Menlo Park police Chief Dave Bertini use a racial slur in an ethics training.

Menlo Park Police Chief Dave Bertini is taking his Ball and going home.

The Council and Chief of Police were having a discussion on Police Reform.

Councilman Ray Mueller asked him a vague softball question “How the police department can build a better relationship with residents.”

“It is obvious to me that I have lost the trust of council,” Bertini said.

His last day will be July 30, 2020

This is a conversation all City and County Officials in America are starting to have, Let the negotiations begin.

Once you know you have a disgruntled employee its best to take their keys ASAP and Thank them for all they have done for your community, Replace that position in the interim.

MP City Council Contact Mark Melville

Chinedu Okobi’s Death was a Homicide. Same as George Floyd.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

March 1, 2019 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirms Chinedu Okobi’s death was a Homicide. 47:30 mark.

A reasonable person would ask why the Six Sheriff Employees were not arrested and charged? In George Floyd’s Homicide all Officers were fired and criminally charged.

I’m not surprised the residents of San Mateo County don’t know this information, Reporter Anna Schuessler sat in front of me at the press conference and heard as we all did it was a Homicide. Her article the next left out the most important word in the story Homicide for some reason. Thats 84,000 readers that were not informed.

Deputies cleared: Taser death decision likely trailed by lawsuit, pledge to use medical equipment

By Anna Schuessler Daily Journal staff Mar 2, 2019 

The Residents of San Mateo County should get a second opinion from the A.G.

True in SMC Homicide of Chinedu Okobi 10/03/2018

By Michael G. Stogner

This photo was taken at a protest for George Floyd’s Murder. When I saw the Kill Now Lie Later I couldn’t help but think about Chinedu Okobi being killed by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees and ALL the Lies that followed. The Lie Later could be minutes or hours as evidenced by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos two News Releases.

Omitting the 6th Sheriff Employee CSO Gonzales
Sherif Carlos G.Bolanos created this lie

Chinedu Okobi was not running in and out of traffic, and did not immediately assault the deputy. Sheriff Bolanos left both of these false statements on the County’s website for 5 months.

The Lie could be 19 days later as example Sgt. Irfan Zaidi “I directed Deputy Lorenzatti to remove the metal handcuffs from the subject, which she did, and the subject was placed on his back.

This is a 100% fabrication by a SMC Sergeant 19 days after the Homicide. Zaidi was NOT involved in the Homicide but filed a false report.

March 1, 2019 60 days after Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz determined the manner of death to be a Homicide, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe and his top management team held this closed to the public Press Conference which I attended.

The Lie later could also be 5 months later and 2 months after it was determined to be a Homicide.

SMC COUNTY D.A. Provides public his highly edited video and reports.

They don’t mention the Homicide. Why?

Supervisor Don Horsley is Dishonest. It’s that simple.

By Michael G. Stogner

Supervisor Don Horsley

Think about this when you read the Nice description below about children and San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies, This goes back to when Supervisor Don Horsley was Sheriff of San Mateo County and had a Deputy Mary Koziol R.I.P. who worked as Resource Officer at Garfield Elementary School K-8 in Menlo Park. Her partner reported her sleeping with a female student at that school to SMCSO Sgt. Al Cantera who reported it to Victoria O’Brian who reported it to Sheriff Don Horsley, The results he had a talk with her, she didn’t stop he promoted her to Sgt.

Ask Supervisor Don Horsley what actions he took as Sheriff when he learned she was having sex with one of the female students? Remember K-8

SAL was founded in 1997 by former Sheriff Don Horsley with the purpose of strengthening relationships between youth, deputies, and communities to aid in the intervention and prevention of juvenile delinquency in San Mateo County through positive, dynamic programs. The program was in North Fair Oaks and had a small presence on the coast, serving approximately 1,000 youth per year. In 2009, former Sheriff Greg Munks expanded the SAL program to 12 locations throughout the county, increased deputy support and established a community policing substation that was a permanent home for SAL programs. The program grew to serve approximately 3,500 youth per year.

Today, under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, the SAL program continues to thrive and is serving over 11,000 youth per year in programs, presentations and special events throughout San Mateo County. In light of events in 2015, President Obama called for law enforcements agencies to engage in community policing to build relationships with their communities. The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, thanks to our leadership, has been engaged in community policing practices for over 20 years and continues to be a progression organization that adapts to the needs of our communities.

Now S.A.L. is in the News again this time for Embezzlement of $500K-$800K. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says he expects the Attorney General of California to finish it’s Investigation within 3 weeks. When did the A.G. Office open it’s investigation?

The former Executive Director Barbara Bonilla was Escorted out of her office February 10, 2020 and placed on Administrative Leave. I wrote an article about it on February 28, 2020. She also was a top official with California PAL and National PAL.

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Don Horsley Cc: Chris Hunter Thu, May 28 at 6:16 PM

Hello Don,
I’m doing an update of my S.A.L Executive Director Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave Story, that I wrote Feb 28, 2020. I was the only SMC Media to report it, Now I am updating it to include Embezzlement Allegations and others involved. I know you have known about this for almost 5 months.
Would you like to make any comment at this time, When did you first became aware of it, did you report it to the A.G.? 
Are you aware of the Sheriff’s Office doing an internal Investigation? Do you think that is appropriate considering who is involved?
Can you tell me what date Barbara Bonilla resigned? Her name is still on the website.


Thank You
Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County News.com

Don Horsley chose not to answer any of my questions, He did make comments to HMBR reporter Libby Leyden, Horsley said “he was only aware that Bonilla was on administrative leave.”

I had to laugh when I read that because I would not have been able to write my article February 28, 2020 if it had not been for Supervisor Don Horsley talking about Embezzlement by Barbara Bonilla, and another individual that Don named which I will not name at this time.

The real story here is the hiding from the 750,000 SMC residents for 5 months an Embezzlement case. One of the main reasons to hide it is to make sure the guilty people are never charged. The coverup how many great corporations are involved with Sheriff Activities League. The money is stolen from the kids, how many prominent leaders in SMC knew for 5 months about the embezzlement and kept their mouths shout.

That is a Great Lesson to teach our children of San Mateo County.

October 18, 2019 Article about Chinedu Okobi Homicide by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. In response to questions about Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issuing 3 News Releases 2 on October 3, 2018 and 1 on March 1, 2019 all containing False statements.

Supervisor Don Horsley said that he thinks that the sheriff’s office has been transparent through the investigation and was unconcerned that it took five months for the inaccurate information to be corrected.

“I think it was good of them to correct the statement,” he said.

The reality is Don Horsley was ok with the lies for 5 months and then He lied about them being corrected. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos NEVER corrected the False statements he just Deleted it.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos identifies Deputies in Death of Sandra Lee Harmon.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: Sheriff Video shows Unarmed Sandra Harmon w/Hands above head being shot at. 8:02 mark

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba and Deputy David Dominguez are finally identified by the Sheriff Office. Why the delay?

They were dispatched because of a call reporting “Woman with a gun.” walking on Main Street, Half Moon Bay. What was the PLAN? What time was the PERT TEAM dispatched? What time did they arrive? Mental Health Issues, What did the Sergeant on duty recommend as the game plan on how to get this gun away from this woman? Which Deputy arrived first and according to Sheriff Bolanos he was SHOT at. How did the old Shotgun get on the ground? Did Sandra Lee Harmon comply with the orders being shouted at her? Many people with Mental Health Issues DO NOT COMPLY with Law Enforcement Orders. The Sheriff Office Knows that, Everybody Knows that. What was the Plan?

Just the week before Michigan State Capitol had a lot of people walking around with Long Guns. Nobody killed them.

Sheriff Summary: On May 5, 2020, at approximately 7:25 pm, deputies were dispatched to the area of Main Street and Monte Vista Lane in Half Moon Bay on the report of a woman with a gun. The woman, later identified as Sandra Harmon, was described by the caller as white, slender with a striped shirt and skirt, carrying a rifle and alcohol.

Responding deputies located Harmon to the rear of 845 Main Street. Harmon fired at the first deputy on the scene. The second deputy arrived as shots were being fired. Both deputies ordered Harmon to get onto the ground, but she failed to comply. When she reached for the firearm, which was on the ground at that point, the deputies fired at Harmon, striking her.

Now Release the Unedited Video and Audio recordings from the Mobile Audio Video MAV and the Remote Microphones that are manufactured by the Axon Enterprise Inc.

That will show that the Statement by San Mateo County Sheriff Office is the truth. Harmon fired at the first deputy on the scene. Of course if that is true then that outcome is to be expected. Has SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos ever issued a False News Release, You bet he has Several as a matter of fact. October 3, 2018 Chinedu Okobi Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees. Sheriff Bolanos Identified five of the six Sheriff Employees that day October 3, 2018. What was different here?

Some Media in San Mateo County wrote “Shootout” and “Shotgun Wielding” The Videos will show what actually happened. Update:

The video shows NO SHOOTOUT.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, “Best Less Lethal Tools.” Really?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.

The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.

Supervisor Warren Slocum

You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.

I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.

SMC Board of Supervisor Meeting May 5, 2020

    Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.”
    Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.

    Thank You

    No need to read below just for reference.
    Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.
