HMB Resident Rachel A. Quintana did the right thing. SMCSO Employees Didn’t.

By Michael G. Stogner

In late 2015 Rachel Amanda Quintana did what most of us hope we would have the courage to do. She went to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Sub Station in Half Moon Bay to file an official complaint about Sheriff Deputies abusive interactions involving her two brothers. She should get the Best Sister Award if there is such an award.

What she got instead was arrested at her home a couple of days later. The ARRESTING party was lead by Sergeant Michael E. Otte, and included Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney and Deputy Jose M. Velasquez. 66.66% of the arresting party lied and made false statements.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Kostielney filed A supplemental report after the arrest in which he stated that “no cellular telephones possessed any video footage of the incident.”

What he was declaring was that Sergeant Micheal E. Otte did NOT Video the Arrest with his personal Cellphone which in fact was a lie and he knew it.

It’s one thing to lie in an Official Police Report It’s a whole different ball game to lie under oath on the Witness Stand in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom which is exactly what Sergeant Michael E. Otte did on January 5, 2017. Who was aware of the Perjury committed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant in a Superior Court in San Mateo County. The list is long, I won’t bother listing all but at the top was Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Her Bailiff who should be acknowledged for doing what we all expect of our law enforcement employees.

Hon. Judge Lisa Novak & Sgt. Michael Otte Perjury starts on Page 5

What happened to Deputy Nicholas P. Kostielney?

We know what happened to Sergeant Michael E. Otte, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos gave him a Retirement Party.

Sgt. Michael E. Otte & Sheriff Bolanos

How many more Brave Citizens/Residents of Half Moon Bay came forward to report abusive behavior by the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies. The City Council should have a data base available to the public to protect the public.

Rachel Amanda Quintana paid the price, years in the criminal justice system, with all charges to be dismissed quietly.

Is SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Honest?

by Michael G. Stogner

This should be the only subject that is Important for the City of Half Moon Bay Public Safety Subcommittee. The Sheriff is the Vendor of Law Enforcement.

Bob Nesbit

Half Moon Bay City Manager Bob Nesbit and Deputy City Manager Matthew Chidester have shown consistently that they have no interest in the truth about Sandra Lee Harmon’s Homicide by San Mateo County Deputies on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main St. Half Moon Bay, California.

Matthew Chidester

They both have been provided a tremendous amount of data by Citizens to know beyond a shadow of doubt that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is dishonest and they both continue to mislead the subcommittee and the public.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos told the public Sandra Lee Harmon was killed in a Shootout with two of his deputies. He said She fired first. His deputies have Body Worn Cameras and that shootout should be simple to verify right? Wrong the Sheriff casually says the one and only BWC that could verify the shootout was turned off at the time of the killing. Sheriff Bolanos knows Ms. Harmon was shot 3 times in the back all 3 shots were fatal, he omits that fact. He knows 3 of the 14 spent shell casings were moved and replaced in a location more consistent with the official narrative. He knows his deputy fire at Ms. Harmon while she was unarmed and her hands were above her head he fails to inform the public of that fact.

David Silberman

The Axon Log Records are the answer. San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman who’s daughter Sara is employed by Sheriff Bolanos has obstructed the release of the Axon Log Records multiple times. Why?

Retired Deputy Mark Melville is running for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 Mark Melville has stated “Absolutely he will release the Axon records as soon as he is Sheriff. He said the same thing about all Booking photos.

Bob Nesbit and Matthew Chidester have known this information for a long time and produced this meeting December 10, 2020. There is No Mention of Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018 in Millbrae. Why? Chinedu was San Mateo County’s George Floyd, No 911 call, No crime being committed, Sheriff Bolanos Issued 2 False News Releases that remained on the County’s website for 5 months. That is almost identical to the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

NO Mention of the Axon Log Records. Why?

Half Moon Bay Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting

The City of Half Moon Bay should have Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos attend a Zoom meeting and explain his position in Not releasing the Axon Log Records.

Another False News Release by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

A reasonable person in San Mateo County would know by now not to believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or his Public Information Officers publish or provide to the public.

The News Releases dated October 3, 2018 involving the Homicide by Deputies of Chinedu V. Okobi is just one example.

The Recent Homicide by Deputies of Sandra Lee Harmon May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay is another.

Now we have a News release issued December 4, 2020 by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office about Barbara Bonilla being arrested on December 4, 2020. On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000. That is a Baldface Lie. If that was a TRUE statement there would be a Booking Photo dated December 4, 2020. Its that simple.

SMC Sheriff News Release 12/4/2020

You’ll notice there is No Booking Photo provided by the Sheriff’s Office, Why? Did any of the other print media request the Booking Photo of Barbara Bonilla? I have.

From the News Release: “SAL is a non-profit organization affiliated with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.” That is an understatement, Sheriff Activities League (SAL) is a Division of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

From the News Release: “The investigation determined that approximately $25,000 was missing.

Did the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) Investigate the Sheriff Activities League Executive Director and others for 10 months for approximately $25,000 of MISSING money. The Investigation was for Embezzlement and Laundering not Missing money. Why did the Investigation take 10 months if it was only $25,000?

I would like to see what the DOJ says the total amount is, not what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says.

Why was Barbara Bonilla not arrested on April 2, 2020 as the DOJ expected?

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.

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

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.

Half Moon Bay Mayor Adam Eisen fails to act after being misled by Law Enforcement.

By Michael G. Stogner

Adam Eisen

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.

Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>To: Carlos Bolanos, Public Information Officer Mon, Aug 31 at 10:41 AM

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
Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com

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.

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.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos on Oversight System.

By Michael G. Stogner

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos told the City of San Carlos Leaders “He could not recall an issue justifying spending money on an oversight system.”

Nobody is asking for a System. Carlos G. Bolanos has a history of misleading the public.

Here is just a short list of ISSUES that come to mind.

Sandra Harmon May 05, 2020 Killed by Sheriff Deputies, Deputy Dominguez firing 5 shots at Unarmed with Hands Up above her head. He Bolanos claims she fired her 2 shot shotgun at Dominguez while he was taking cover behind his patrol car which was parked sideways. Not a mark or scratch on the patrol car of the Deputy. He claims Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera and that is why there is NO EVIDENCE provided to prove Sandra Harmon fired ANY shots.

At the 8:02-8:08 mark you will see Sandra Harmon Unarmed with hands above her head and you will hear 5 shots being fired at her.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s video

February 10, 2020 SAL Executive Director Barbara Bonilla was escorted out of her office and is being investigated for embezzlement. She was Sheriff Bolanos’s Campaign Manager in the 2018 election. She has resigned from the Sheriff’s office since Why? She she hasn’t been charged with any crime. She has been removed from State and National PAL Boards.

September 14, 2019 Redwood City Police arrested SMCSO Sergeant Luis Aquino for DUI and refusing to take both blood and breath test. Sheriff Bolanos and David Silberman refused to provide his Booking photo. San Carlos: An additional $50,000 was also approved for DUI services. 

October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide in Custody just like George Floyd, No 911 Call, just a Moorehouse Graduate and father walking on the sidewalk in the middle of the day, No crime committed before Deputy Wang got attracted to him a large Black Man he was dead minutes later.

December 31, 2018 San Mateo County Deputy Heather Diaz Coroner “I have determined the manner of Death to be Homicide.”

HOMICIDE PROTOCOL* 36 year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies. March 1, 2019 District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe confirmed it was a Homicide at the very end of his Press Conference where he announced no criminal charges would be filed. KQED, CBS5, and San Mateo County News.com all reported Homicide.

One ISSUE was the many False Statements provided to the Public by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos per his News Releases dated October 3, 2018 and March 1, 2019.

June 3, 2014 Yanira Serrano killed by Deputy within 20 seconds of getting out of his patrol car. It was a non emergency 911 call for medical assistance.

2014 Lets not forget what Carlos G. Bolanos and many others have done to destroy former Sherif Deputy Juan P. Lopez since he filed to run for Sheriff of San Mateo County. Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a gang member in Jail. Sure he did, 100% False Charges.

2009/10 San Mateo County Sheriff Male staff 46 of them sharing Porn and Rape video on County Computers.

April 21, 2007 Operation Dollhouse, Las Vegas Nevada

Regarding Citizen Oversight and or an Audit of his work

Sheriff Bolanos said he was open to but felt removed accountability from leaders of organizations. I have no idea what that means

“I believe they’re dysfunctional primarily because you have people who are not experts in certain fields making determination on what is appropriate or not,”

“With me as an elected official the voters have the greatest civilian oversight and can replace me with someone else.”

How would the voters ever know what he is doing or how he is doing it without an Audit.

You can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

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

Sandra Lee Harmon 56, a Mother and Wife was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies less than 8 hours later at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California.

San Mateo County Release the Videos, Audios Today. Identity the Deputies involved. It’s been 7 days since she was killed.

At 3:52:22 My public comment was read by Suki into the public record.

  • Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>May 5 at 8:11 AM
  • To:Sukhmani S. Purewal
  • Cc: Jeff Regan, Dave Pine, Don Horsley, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom and 1 more…Tue,
  • Dear Supervisors,
    I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened.
    Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018

    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
    Michael G. Stogner

    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.
