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

Sheriff Carlos Bolanos Releases some Booking Photos.

By Michael G. Stogner

I first reported that Redwood City Police Officers Arrested San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino for DUI right after he left the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA Bar and crashed a Jeep into a tree.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino Arrested

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and his PIO refused to provide the Booking photo. Several requests were made.

Adam Alberti Editor of ClimateRWC Important story with Booking Photos

It has a really cool picture of a Sheriff Patrol Vehicle and 2 Booking Photos. Why were they released and not Sgt. Lou Aquino’s?

Google San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino Arrested for DUI and see how many of the print media reported it and what dates their articles came out.

All Booking Photos should be available to the media and public.

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

  • 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.

San Mateo County Sheriff Office Booking Photo Audit.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Sheriff Office released the Booking photo of Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez the day he was arrested which is exactly what the Sheriff Office is expected to do. Booking Photos belong to the Public.

Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez was Booked into jail, fingerprinted and photographed. He was charged with Smuggling a Cell-Phone and Drugs into Maguire Jail where he worked and he gave them to a Hells Angel Gang Member according to the Sheriff and District Attorney. That was over 5 years ago, There was never any evidence that those allegations were true or accurate. That is Outrageous Government Conduct, and Prosecutorial Misconduct.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino was arrested for DUI September 14, 2019 @ 11:30 PM by the Redwood City Police Department on Broadway near the Deputy Sheriff Association building which has a bar in it. He refused both Blood and Breath test which according to DMV website is a Suspension of Drivers License for a 1 year period. The officer is required by law to immediately forward a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and any driver license taken into possession, with a sworn report to the DMV.

It’s not clear that Redwood City Police Officer’s took his Drivers License away from him or not at this time.

What is clear is that the Sheriff’s Office has refused to provide the Booking Photo.

The Supervisors of San Mateo County are the Oversight for the Residents.

Was Sheriff Sergeant Aquino Under-Charged and given Special treatment?

    https://www.smcsheriff.com/sites/default/files/articles/19-11427.pdf

    See Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade do release the Booking photos of some people arrested in San Mateo County.
    They both are still refusing to release the Booking photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino who was arrested September 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department for DUI and refusing both Breath and Blood tests.
    Could you please ask both of them to explain why?
    Thank You 
    Michael G. StognerSan Mateo County News.com

I’m still waiting.

The next Court Date for Sheriff Sergeant Aquino was April 6, 2020 but you can take that off of your calendar The D.A’s Office, Joshua Bentley and the Judge have quietly no reporters completed this DUI case this Wednesday.

SMCSO Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI Case Next Court Date April 6, 2020

IMG_1207

By Michael G. Stogner

March 2, 2020 Court date results next court date is April 6, 2020.

As you can see this is not his Booking Photo, for some unknown reason Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Rosemerry Blankswade the Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer have refused to provide it or even respond to my several requests.

On October 1, 2019 San Mateo County News.com was the first News & Information Service to report his arrest September 14, 2019 by the Redwood City Police Department at 11:30 PM near the DSA Building on Broadway Ave. He crashed a vehicle into a tree with a RWCPD Officer right behind him. He was to belligerent to qualify for First Chance in Burlingame but RWCPD did him a Big Favor by taking him there anyway. Easier to hide the arrest if he was accepted there. The Staff refused to accept him and RWCPD drove him to Maguire Jail in Redwood City where he was supposedly BOOKED for DUI and Refusing both Blood and Breath Tests, which is a loss of Drivers License for those who don’t matter.

Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino retained Attorney Josh Bentley (AKA The Fixer) before any criminal charges were filed. That is always the best way to do it.

Sergeant Aquino did not appear at his last Court Date and most likely he will not appear at the next one.

I sent this story to all the San Mateo County Newspapers, The only paper to publish a story was the Palo Alto Daily Post October 25, 2019 24 days later.

Corruption in San Mateo County is nothing new, I think most residents know it exists and they are just thankful it hasn’t affected them personally. They don’t think there is anything they can do about it. So they remain Silent and allow it, this case is a perfect example.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos think he doesn’t have to release the Booking Photo?

“Unqualified trust relationship with this partner.” Hon. Judge Lisa Novak

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

In a response to the Commission on Judicial Performance .

The Commission on Judicial Performance, established in 1960, is the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity and for disciplining judges, pursuant to article VI, section 18 of the California Constitution.

Somebody filed a complaint against Judge Novak because she notified all the Judges present at the June 20, 2017 Judges Meeting, She had made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

The person or persons who filed the complaint was not concerned at all by the fact that a SMC Sheriff Sergeant would lie under oath in her court, the person and the CJP was only concerned that she informed all the Judges who attended.

She noted the close relationship between the Sheriffs Office and the Court and cited the need to have an unqualified trust relationship with this partner.

Lets look at this unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Carlos G. Bolanos.

In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi three False News Releases. Omitting 6th Sheriff Employee for starters.

San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI arrested by RWCPD September 14, 2019 Sheriff Bolanos refuses to release the Booking Photo. Why?

San Mateo County former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case going for more than 5 years with the sole purpose to cause harm to him mentally and financially. The public might recall the big Press Conference claiming Nobody is above the law in San Mateo County and Charging Deputy Lopez with Smuggling a Cellphone and Drugs to a Hells Angel member in Jail. Sheriff Carlos Bolanos knew there was No Evidence to support those charges.

These are just three current examples unqualified trust relationship with the Sheriff’s Office under the leadership of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

An older example when Carlos G. Bolanos was Undersheriff 2010 the Brave Female Deputy reporting the 46 San Mateo County Sheriff Male Employees receiving and sharing Porn and Rape Video on County Computers.

It is my experience that Judges in San Mateo County have allowed Sheriff Employees and District Attorney Employees and County Counsel Employees to lie/file false instruments and give False Testimony on a daily basis, this is the Norm it shouldn’t be.

I say you can’t possibly manage what you don’t measure.

Lets find out exactly what happened after Hon. Judge Lisa Novak made a finding that SMCSO Sergeant Michael E. Otte Perjured Himself in her courtroom.

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office Top Two Investigators being Investigated. By Who?

By Michael G. Stogner

This might come as a surprise to the residents of San Mateo County but Attorneys file False Instruments with the Courts every single day, Would the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office do it? Sure it’s possible, lets find out. The District Attorney’s Office had 73 days to Investigate Massey and Warren, why the long delay. Who’s left in the D.A.’s office to conduct an Internal Investigation of the top two anyway?

Update: 1/10/2020 San Mateo County Counsel Attorney Joseph F. Charles appeared and his two clients D.A. Inspectors William Massey and John Warren remained outside the courtroom for several hours. They did not take the witness stand but never the less it was good to see them there. Mr. Charles asked for and got his Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 SEALED. Why would he ask for that?

Another attorney (female) from San Mateo Counsel Office representing the Five Sheriff Employees who were there to testify and one unnamed Sheriff Employee involved in a Belmont “incident” while not on duty many years ago, and had nothing to do with Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ( according to her) was there to make sure the Belmont Police report was not only not made public but that Juan Lopez’s Attorneys could not see it either. The Judge temporarily SEALED it to give the Government time to file a motion to seal.

Note: Attorney David Washington sued the City of Belmont November 13, 2014 for not providing the Police Report involving Sgt. Jason Edward Peardon, I know this because I filed the suit and personally served the City of Belmont Attorney. The PADP did a story on it the next day, the attorney claimed the suit was unnecessary and a phone could have resolved this matter. Within a couple of days the City of Belmont retained a Law Firm across the bay and Never provided the Police Report.

The Statement by San Mateo County Counsel that “Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon has nothing to do with the Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez.” case is Laughable, He is the Juan Lopez case. Finally the Belmont Police Report surfaces only to be SEALED.

According to a Motion to Quash Subpoenas filed Jan. 07, 2020 by Deputy Counsel Joseph F. Charles SBN 228456 in Case No. NF433910A former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. Mr. Lopez’s next court date is Tomorrow Jan. 09,2020 9:00AM SSF court Hon. Judge Danny Chou.

San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers Office just filed a motion Yesterday Jan. 7, 2020 to Quash Subpoenas for District Attorney’s Office Senior Inspector William Massey and Chief Inspector John Warren to testify tomorrow.

“In response to the October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint served by Defendant Lopez, the San Mateo County District Attorney Office has commenced an Internal Investigation into  the allegations made by Defendant in his October 28, 2019 Citizen Complaint has recently commenced, is ongoing, and will not be completed until after the completion of the Defendants underlying criminal trial.” This internal investigation subsumes all of the factual issues raised in the Citizen Complaint which include events that transpired as far back as 2015. More importantly Defendant’s criminal trial is likely to reveal the names of witnesses, events, information and additional evidence directly relevant to the District Attorney Office internal investigation into alleged misconduct (and potentially criminal misconduct) allegedly engaged in by law enforcement personnel.

How do they know when x Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez’s underlying criminal trial is going to be completed?

What date was this Investigation opened and Who is conducting it?

Why wasn’t this Investigation opened several years ago when Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez filed a lawsuit with the exact same complaint?

thumbnail-2Senior Inspector John Warren, Lets hope this is on his off time.

Update 5:40 PM 1/8/2020 No response from San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers yet.

Michael:
I hope you also had a good holiday season.
As you may know by now, yesterday the court ordered the Citizen’s Complaint and any information related to it including the DA’s internal investigation, sealed from disclosure as a confidential record.  Therefore, the County is not at liberty to discuss the investigation or answer any questions about it because to do so would violate the court order.

Best,

John

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe has not responded.

Mark Melville Candidate for SMC Sheriff 2022

sjm-l-smcsheriff-0603

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

By Michael G. Stogner

In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes which was 40% of the 172,168 Ballots cast. 38,140 ballots or 22% of total ballots DID NOT vote for Sheriff according to the San Mateo County Elections Office website. Most of the residents of San Mateo County don’t realize that they are responsible for the behavior and conduct of their Sheriff. The Sheriff Office employees 800 people who are trusted to provide law enforcement services throughout the County. There is ZERO Oversight of this agency.

Melville stands a much better chance to win now that he has the time to get his message out to the voters. That includes the uphill battle to counter the False information provided to the public by the print media. Example SMDJ “Although an initial news report located Bolanos in the brothel with Munks, later reports indicated he was outside the entire time. I have asked Jon Mays to provide a copy of the Later Reports he has not.

Mark Melville was very direct and specific when talking about his boss Carlos G. Bolanos. “He’s a Liar,” That would have been good information for the SMDJ to pass on to their 84,000 readers/voters of San Mateo County. They choose not to and instead said “We Believe Him.”

KQED Interview

I don’t know if Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has any plans to run for re-election in 2022. I do know he didn’t like to attend candidate forums with Mark Melville present.

As far a transparency goes, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has refused to provide the Booking Photo of Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino for his September 14, 2019 DUI Arrest by the Redwood City Police Department. I asked Candidate Melville as Sheriff would he release that photo? His answer was Yes. That was refreshing, it’s pretty simple that Booking Photo is Public Information. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has issued several False News Releases regarding the October 3, 2018 In-Custody Homicide of Chinedu Okobi by six Sheriff Employees. He has refused to respond to several requests regarding the False Information.
