San Mateo County Snake Oil, Cures All That Ails You. Come Get Some!

 

screen shot 2019-01-05 at 10.39.27 am

For over a year there was a pattern of police use of force deaths, in San Mateo County. This pattern culminated, in the October 3, 2018 Millbrae death of 36 year old pedestrian Chinedu Okobi.

Despite what would appear to any reasonably objective observer, an escalating body count, Mr Wagstaffe, as District Attorney, did nothing to address / curb the situation. And now, his administration is seemingly poised to render a decision blaming Okobi’s death, on something other than the unnecessary & excessive use of force by officers. This is a familiar pattern with DA Steve Wagstaffe, with his having blamed previous deaths on the decedents -their respective acts & medical conditions.

Most recently, he went on television saying he was not going to speculate on the Okobi case, that he had to get all the facts, before rendering a decision on the matter. Yet, instead of keeping his word, he went on camera and questioned the product liability aspect of Tasers, a device repeatedly used by officers, in their confrontation of Okobi .

Mr. Wagstaffe ignored a year long prologue of police use of force deaths, in his very jurisdiction. And then he told us he was not going to release videos, in his possession, ones which depict exactly what had happened, in the most recent death, that of Mr. Okobi.

Chinedu Valentine Okobi

Just as his office had excluded two African American’s from serving on the jury in the Tracey Biletnikoff murder case, a matter in which he had been criticized by the appellate court. This was a Murder Conviction reversed because of Wagstaffe’s behavior. “During jury selection, the prosecutor, Stephen Wagstaffe, peremptorily struck the only two African-American members of the jury pool… We hold that a comparative juror analysis, in combination with other facts in the record, demonstrates that the prosecutor’s purported race-neutral reasons for striking at least one of the jurors were pretexts for racial discrimination.”

He now says he is not going to release the videos and audio recordings of Chinedu’s murder to the public, his employers, so that they can see them.

The People do not need an interpreter, to understand what they are seeing for themselves, Mr. Wagstaffe.

Okobi’s mother and sister were shown the videos and audio recordings, and here is what his sister, Ebele, said about them:

It’s readily apparent you are struggling to shoehorn your narrative of what occurred with the facts and, in so doing, you have passed the rubicon of truthfulness, leaving honesty & integrity behind, and entering a sea of deception -familiar territory for yourself, a directed or desired outcome.

The taint and stench you and your cadre have brought to the office of district attorney is palpable and, I submit, can not be removed, without your & their removal.

Felony fraud resulting in the diversion of over 2 million dollars of public monies being characterized by your office as sloppy accounting practices, at San Mateo County Transit, is but one / just one example of DA Wagstaffe’s aversion to the truth. False debits are not errors or sloppy accounting, Steve, they are intentional criminal acts.

Here is the letter from Albert Serrato falsely declaring that no crimes were committed in the SamTrans fraud brought by 3 whistleblowers, who were accountants and risked and lost their own jobs.

The bias you have demonstrated, when it comes to Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and former Sheriff Greg Munks, excusing their abhorrent behavior & giving them a pass, when they were detained by Las Vegas metropolitan police and the FBI, in a human trafficking investigation, one in which they had gone to a home being used as a whorehouse in a rundown residential neighborhood with Asian indentured sex-slaves, at least one of whom was a minor, and a cache (3,500 tablets) of illegal ecstasy drugs, is reprehensible and not in keeping with the public’s trust, Steve.

In that unguarded moment, in what you thought would be a confidential email to the duo, you expressed your support and consoled the two that the matter would soon pass and become yesterday’s news. This provides a rare glimpse into the flawed (real) character & thinking of who is District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Here are those emails, #ThoseWhoMatter:

emails&literature

The fact that Okobi’s killers are back at work, armed, with unfeathered contact with the public & custodies alike, is testament to the fact DA Wagstaffe has cleared them and communicated this information to Sheriff Bolanos. Yet he is still massaging his findings to the public, delaying what he has obviously determined -that the officers’ use of force resulting in Okobi’s death was justified (reasonable) and that he and his office are going to do nothing about it, giving them a pass.

You are a snake oil salesman, Steve, selling the public adultered versions of the truth and being a shill for morally corrupt county officials. Release the videos, so we can see just how much!

If you as the reader are asking, “How on Earth is Steve Wagstaffe still the District Attorney of San Mateo County.” You are on the right track. The short answer is that you are responsible for him being there. He can only be recalled or voted out. He has full immunity for anything he does.

San Mateo County’s Measure W Fails.

 

samtrans-1-1533683163-3178

Based on the information from San Mateo County Election Office there was a total of 286,210 ballots received, of that amount 265,793 ballots tallied a total 249,288 voted either yes or no for Measure W. That also means that 16,605 votes were not tallied or didn’t vote either way for Measure W. = 6.24% of the 265,793.

With a total of 20,417 remaining ballots to be tallied, minus the 6,24% No tally or vote for Measure W average leaves 19,149 votes to be tallied. The Yes on Measure W would have to get 68.7% of the remaining ballots “and they are statistically unlikely to meet the necessary threshold”.

With that information We are calling Measure W Failed.

Total Registered Voters 399,591, 286,210 Voted = 72% Turnout

San Mateo County Harbor District’s Special Meeting May 26, 2015

I attended this meeting because I voted for Sabrina Brennan. I believe if I vote for someone and they are representing my interests it is my responsibly to make sure they can do the job. This meeting was created by Commissioner Robert Bernardo all by himself, he requested it in a closed session that did not include Sabrina Brennan.

I was impressed with who attended, two SSF Police Officers in uniform, Bill Silverfarb, Supervisor Don Horsley, his two aides and his body guard a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy in plain clothes. Mark Simon was there I wondered why? Citizen Access TV owners John and Dan Ullom were providing the public live broadcast at not cost to the taxpayers. They have been doing so since former Commissioners Jim Tucker and Will Holsinger voted to end videotaping and live broadcast for public access of the District’s Meetings. Somebody stole the Ullom’s broadcasting device, SSF Deputy Chief Mike Brosnan not only refused to enforce the law, He ordered the Ullom’s not to turn on the device after he reluctantly gave it back to them. Hanson Bridgett LLP attorney Steve Miller remained silent to John Ullom’s public request of him “Can I broadcast this public meeting.”

Robert Bernardo & Steve Miller of Hanson Bridgett LLP. Cost Taxpayers.

Robert Bernardo

There have been many Hit pieces by the Advertising Businesses about San Mateo County Harbor District Commissioner Sabrina Brennan costing the Taxpayers so much money. I have not seen any article about how much Robert Bernardo and Attorney Steve Miller have cost the taxpayers. Lets take the 5 year permit for the Mavericks Surf contest that Robert Bernardo motioned and voted for when it wasn’t on the agenda and who let him behave that way. Hanson Bridgett LLP Steve Miller. That is why he gets paid the big bucks so that this value creating vote doesn’t happen unless it’s on the ballot. What is the total cost to the Taxpayers because of these two gentlemen?

Note: Hanson Bridgett LLP donated $25,000 to the Yes on W campaign.

San Mateo County Harbor District and Taxpayers would benefit with new legal counsel.
