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

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.
May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon a Mother and a Wife who suffered from Mental Health Issues was shot and Killed by Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay, California. That we know, and that’s about all we know.
There is NO reason for the residents of SMC to trust anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos an Elected Official says after the October 3, 2018 Homicide of Chinedu Okobi by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Sheriff Bolanos issued 2 News Releases that day, both contained False Statements. He issued a 3rd News Release March 1, 2019 which contained even more False Statements.
All Five San Mateo County Supervisors are OK with all of the False Statements by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos mentioned above.
If the Videos and Audio from AXON actually contained the evidence that confirms what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says happened, you can bet he would have made it public on May 5th and there would be no reason to have to trust him, it would answer all the questions. A simple video of her firing her Shotgun at Deputies first and Life Saving efforts provided after she was shot multiple times while reaching for her shotgun that somehow was on the ground.
That would go a long way for Public Trust and Confidence in Law Enforcement. A Citizen Oversight Committee with Subpoena power would be an improvement also a County Wide Policy to make Videos and Audios from remote Mic. public within 24 hours of all Deaths by Law Enforcement.
What time was the SMC PERT TEAM dispatched?
What time did the SMC PERT TEAM arrive on scene?
Release the videos and audio Now.
This what happens when The Sheriff’s Office, The District Attorney’s Office have 5 months to edit and add suggestive captions. Notice they only mention 5 Sheriff Employees instead of the 6.
