A federal judge on Thursday July 7, 2022 sentenced Derek Chauvin to 21 years in prison for violating George Floyd’s civil rights.
Violating Civil Rights sounds so much nicer then Murder doesn’t it?
San Mateo County Residents, do any of you think Chinedu Valentine Okobi’s Civil Rights were not violated on October 3, 2018 in Millbrae at 1:00 PM in the middle of the afternoon by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees? I do.
CSO Joseph Gonzales, Sergeant David Weidner, Deputy Joshua Wang, Deputy Bryan Watt, Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti, Deputy John DeMartini.
The Governments Video Ommits CSO Joseph Gonzales like magic. 7:02-7:05 mark who do you see?
If I was going to Edit the VIDEO that was produced by San Mateo County Government and paid for by the Taxpayers of San Mateo County, I personally would have blurred out the frames showing the Execution of an Unarmed Sandra Lee Harmon with her Hands Up above her head and her back facing San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy David Dominguez who was firing at her from approximately 15 feet away.
Sandra Lee Harmon had THREE fatal shots to her BACK.
I might have added a cartoon depicting some sort of Shootout as the Government told the 760,000 Residents that is what happened. Remember the Shootout Story.
Warning this is a real Homicide by San Mateo County Law Enforcement, Not for everybody.
How is the Public supposed to protect/defend themselves from this Vicious Unprovoked Assault if they are not even informed that it happened?

Sorry for the delay of 16 days in reporting this Vicious and Unprovoked attack on a woman.
I requested information on this arrest on March 29, 2022 @ 5:11PM from San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, his Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankswade and San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. As you can see from these e-mails Steve Wagstaffe was the only one to respond on March 29, 2022. I never heard back from him after that.

Hello Steve, That’s about all I have at this moment, I’ve asked Carlos and his PIO but No response. What is his next court date? What is his name, age and what city does he live in. He assaulted a Moss Beach resident right after his female partner assaulted the same woman, all the while holding a child and a small kitten. The man had a Pit Bull.
Thank You, Michael G. Stogner San Mateo County News.com
Fitzgerald Marine Reserve: There was a second criminal report filed on the next day March 29, 2022. It involves different people. That is still two Law Enforcement involved at the same location in 2 days.
The residents of the neighborhood and all visitors to San Mateo County Coast should have been notified as soon as this happened. You can not have your Law Enforcement and elected officials withholding important information from you. This has got to STOP.
Body Worn Camera Videos is just one example, They are paid for by the Taxpayers and the purpose is to protect the public and assure the public that Law Enforcement is acting according to the law. They should be released to the public within 24 hours of an incident, and they should be UNEDITED.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. It’s been almost 2 years since her Homicide in Half Moon Bay and the Axon Log Records are still being withheld from the public by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
Update: April 8, 2022 @ 8:53 AM, Next Court date April 25, 2022 @ 1:30 PM and October 14, 2022 set for Jury Trial.

The question that remains unanswered by Candidate for re-election Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is, what time on December 6, 2021 did the California Highway Patrol transport Aldon Smith to San Mateo County Jail? Why did you not provide the Residents of SMC with his Booking Photo and a Press Release of his DUI arrest. What happened with him for the missing 5 hours before he finally blew a BAC .288
The public has a right to know, this is a “Those Who Matter” case.
03/08/2022 Arraignment on Information after Preliminary Hearing Judicial Officer Hill, Elizabeth M.
This could have easily been avoided, According to a Proof of Service Document filed with the San Mateo County Superior Court. Kaylan Charles Freeman was served on April 3, 2014 at the same El Granada home with an Emergency Protective Order (EPO) and Notice to Appear in Court.
On April 3, 2014 at 11:25 AM San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Ceferino Gonzales served Kaylan Charles Freeman with a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and Notice to Appear in San Mateo County Superior Court on April 17, 2014 in Honorable Judge Joseph Scott’s Courtroom.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Ceferino Gonzales did NOT sign the Proof of Service until April 18, 2014 after the April 17, 2014 court date had passed. Why?
SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, PIO Rosemerry Blankswade, Sheriff Sergeant Ceferino Gonzales and the FIVE Supervisors should explain to the residents of San Mateo County How did that happen?
On October 3, 2018, Chinedu V. Okobi San Mateo County’s George Floyd was killed by SIX of your Employees. CSO Joseph Gonzales, Sergeant David Weidner, Deputy Joshua Wang, Deputy Alyssa Lorenzatti, Deputy Bryan Watt, Deputy John DeMartini
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is a candidate for Re-Election on June 7, 2022 just 7 months away. There are two other candidates expected on the ballot by March 2022.
San Mateo County News.com is asking Candidate for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Why did his Press/News Release issued to the Public just hours after the Homicide of Chinedu V. Okobi, NOT MENTION or IDENTIFY, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office personnel CSO Joseph Gonzales?
CSO Joseph Gonzales was Involved in the take down, his person and uniform had blood on it, In the Government’s Video which was finally released 5 months after the Homicide he is clearly seen involved and spraying O.C. spray.
Sheriff Bolanos you or your Public Information Officer PIO can answer in the comments on this article.
Every Elected and appointed Official in San Mateo County should have asked this simple question 3 years ago. They didn’t, Why?
Yesterday July 20, 2020, 21 months after Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Killed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi on El Camino Real in Millbrae/San Bruno The Supervisors discussed in Closed Session the progress of the two Civil Lawsuits that the relatives have brought against San Mateo County and a long list of Employees who were involved in the Misinformation aka Lying to the Residents of SMC about what actually occurred on October 3, 2018.
This happens every time Law Enforcement in San Mateo County kills a man or woman. The San Mateo County Media, San Mateo County Counsel, and San Mateo County Supervisors join in the character assassination of the DECEASED.
In Chinedu’s case everyone knows by now that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has No Plan in place on how to make a Pedestrian Stop. Thats right Chinedu Okobi was simply walking down the sidewalk while Black when Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang spotted him while he was traveling northbound in his patrol car. He activated his lights which activated his dashboard video camera which shows him making a U-turn.
Within 8 minutes Chinedu was Tased 7 times, struck with extended baton, Dogpiled by SIX SMC Employees and sprayed with O.C. spray in the face at close range while being handcuffed where he died. From that moment on San Mateo County started to promote the false story of “He was breathing and had a pulse when the Sheriff’s Office Employees turn him over to the AMR people.”
Nothing could be further from the Truth.
There is NO EVIDENCE that any of the Six Employees checked Chinedu Okobi’s pulse or provided ANY Life Saving measures after he was handcuffed and approximately 9:30 minutes passed before ARM people touched him.
How much Taxpayer Money has SMC Supervisors approved for this legal action? How much have they spent to date?
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.
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.

Roger Allen was shot and killed in Daly City on April 7, 2021, Four Unidentified Daly City Police Officers were involved.
Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley has chosen to Not Identify his 4 Police Officers. Why?

It’s been 16 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen, America is demanding change in Policing, Colin Kaepernick risked his career to stop Police Officers from killing Black and Brown people and abusing their authority. Yesterday Columbus Ohio Police released Body Worn Camera Video and the Identity of the Involved Officer within HOURS of a shooting death of a 16 year old Black girl.
Why are Daly City’s entire Elected and hired Staff on a different page then the rest of America? They can’t be racists can they? No of course not they signed and supported the Black Lives Resolution less then a year ago. If they are not racists what could it possibly be?
Could it be as simple as “Those Who Matter.”
I spoke to the Supervisors of San Mateo County April 20, 2021 asking them to make a Public Statement calling for the release of the names of the 4 Involved Daly City Police Officers. Supervisors David Canepa and Warren Slocum sponsored the County’s Black Lives Matter Resolution below. You will notice the Supervisors don’t mention Chinedu V. Okobi who I say is San Mateo County’s George Floyd Homicide by six Sheriff Employees. Why?
I would have expected the “Showboater” Supervisor David Canepa to have made a PUBLIC Statement on this obvious topic 16 days ago, he has remained silent.
· At a Special Meeting this Wed., July 22, 5pm, the Daly City Council will consider potential adoption of a Resolution in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to reaffirm the City’s commitment to racial equity. Register to join the zoom meeting at http://bit.ly/specialmeetingjuly22…
Black Lives Matter Resolution
Posted by kchaiken on Jun 24th 2020
There are moments in history that we look back on as breaking points for social change. I believe that, at this moment, we are facing one of these breaking points. Our nation is in collective anguish at the murder of George Floyd and the countless other Black persons who have been the victims of police violence.
San Mateo County is not exempt from this anguish nor are we exempt from responsibility, but we have the power right now to make a change. We have heard from our community and from protestors across the nation that enough is enough. We need to take concrete steps to address this injustice. That is why I proposed and voted in favor of the San Mateo County Black Lives Matter Resolution.
Although this resolution does not yet outline any specifics, it is a commitment that will serve as the foundation for a whole new set of anti-racist policies and a re-evaluation of our current policies to root out injustice, biases, and systemic racism. These policies will not just serve to benefit members of our Black community, but all people of color, and by extension our entire County.
This resolution is also a key component of our overall work to promote equity in San Mateo County. I want to make it abundantly clear that the County of San Mateo cares deeply about creating an equitable and just community for all.But, it is not possible to have equity for all, until Black Lives Matter.
Hay momentos en la historia que consideramos puntos de quiebre para el cambio social. Creo que, en este momento, nos enfrentamos a uno de estos puntos de quiebre. Nuestra nación está en angustia colectiva por el asesinato de George Floyd y las innumerables personas Afroamericanas que han sido víctimas de la violencia policial.
El Condado de San Mateo no está exento de esta angustia ni estamos exentos de la responsabilidad, pero tenemos el poder en este momento para hacer un cambio. Hemos escuchado de nuestra comunidad y de manifestantes en todo el país que ya es suficiente. Necesitamos tomar medidas concretas para abordar esta injusticia. Es por eso por lo que propuse y voté a favor de la Resolución de Asuntos de Vidas Negras del Condado de San Mateo.
Aunque esta resolución aún no describe un plan detallado, es un compromiso que servirá como base para un conjunto completamente nuevo de políticas antirracistas y una reevaluación de nuestras políticas actuales para erradicar la injusticia, los prejuicios y el racismo sistémico. Estas políticas no solo servirán para beneficiar a los miembros de nuestra comunidad Afroamericana, sino a todas las personas de color y, por extensión, a todo nuestro condado.
Esta resolución también es un componente clave de nuestro trabajo general para promover la equidad en el Condado de San Mateo. Quiero dejar en claro que el Condado de San Mateo se preocupa profundamente por crear una comunidad equitativa y justa para todos. Pero, no es posible tener equidad para todos, hasta que “Black Lives Matter”.

It’s been 14 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen who was shot and killed in a disabled parked truck on a residential street in your City of Daly City. You have refused to name the four Daly City Police Officers who were on the scene. You have refused to tell your Police Chief Patrick Hensley to provide the names of the Officers involved, Why?
This is not Transparency.
Yesterday x Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found Guilty of all three charges including murder of George Floyd.
Your behavior proves that San Mateo County is NOT Minneapolis. Think about the Black Lives Matter Resolution you signed.
October 3, 2018 San Mateo County’s own George Floyd was Chinedu V. Okobi he was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae. Within hours Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issued a partial list of those involved, he left out one of the most important person the CSO who sprayed O.C. in Chinedu okobi’s face after he had been tased 7 times, struck with extended baton and dog piled by the group.
It says Below is a list of names of San Mateo County Sheriff Office personnel who were involved in the critical incident. That is not true. CSO Joseph Gonzales is not named.
Yesterday in Columbus Ohio, a 16 year old girl was shot and killed by a Police Officer responding to 2 911 calls. The Interim Police Chief has already released the name of the Officer who shot and killed the teenager, He has also released the Body Worn Camera Videos. Congratulations to Columbus Ohio.
It’s been 14 days Daly City Elected Officials.
Release the names of the 4 Daly City Police Officers involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen today.
