San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe hasn’t satisfied Zain Jaffer.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe is talking more about the Zain Jaffer former Vungle executive found straddling his 3 year old son while fully naked in the backyard of his Hillsborough home at 4:00AM. Now 17 days after the entire case was dismissed without a preliminary hearing or any witnesses testifying under oath, Mr. Wagstaffe feels he has not done enough to satisfy Mr. Jaffer. Here is his latest PR statement to SFGATE, he did not send this to me co-owner of San Mateo County News. Note: Mr. Wagstaffe has refused to identify the alleged prescription medications that caused Mr. Jaffer to be Not Conscious while assaulting several people, resulting in 7 F’s & 1M charge. The DA’s Office quickly eliminated one felony charge of Attempted Murder.

The Charges that remained up until July 2, 2018:

Charge #1 Attempted Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with a Child 10 years of age or younger. PC 664.288.7(b) Felony

Charge #2 Forcible Lewd Act Upon Child, PC288 (b) Felony

Charge #3 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #4 Assault by Means Likely to Produce Great Bodily Injury, PC 245 (A) Felony

Charge #5 Child Abuse, PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge #6 Child Abuse PC 273 (A) Felony

Charge # 7 Battery Upon a Peace Officer & Designated Person, PC 243 (b) Misdemeanor

SFGATE 7/19/2018

EDITOR’S NOTE: After the publication of this story, officials at the San Mateo County district attorney’s office said they wanted to clarify that “we do not believe that there was any sexual conduct by Mr. Jaffer that evening and for this reason we dismissed the sexual abuse charges. The physical injury charges were separately dismissed because we believe that the injuries were the result of Mr. Jaffer being in a state of unconsciousness caused by prescription medication.”

The FDA should issue a National Warning if the above statement is true.

Question to think about, Why would the District Attorney’s Office feel the need or obligation to clarify anything for Mr. Jaffer? He was facing life in prison if found guilty of the 7 felony counts. Steve Wagstaffe solved that for him.

Question? Steve Wagstaffe says “we do not believe.” That is why we have Juries, what did the evidence prove? If you didn’t believe it why did you charge him in the first place?

What could have possibly happened from October 15, 2017 to July 2, 2018 to cause this entire criminal case to simply disappear? And now 17 days later Steve Wagstaffe feels some pressure to make more public comments. What would cause that?

What about the 2 CHILDREN?

San Mateo County Domestic Violence Protocol. Was it followed in the Zain Jaffer Case?

You might recall on July 2, 2018 Hon. Judge Stephanie Garratt (a former prosecutor for Steve Wagstaffe) granted the DA’s motion to dismiss all charges. I don’t think the Hon. Judge Donald Ayoob would have granted that motion.

According to District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe, police had originally gone to Jaffer’s residence after his father had told them he (Jaffer) had assaulted him. If the father lived there and the two cohabited, this would also have qualified as an act of domestic violence -triggering police to adhere to the County’s Domestic Violence Investigation Protocol to which Hillsborough PD is a signatory.

While at the residence, police allegedly heard a child screaming in the back yard and found a naked Jaffer straddling the child trying to force his 3-year-old son’s face into his genitals (a sex crime), according to Wagstaffe.

After stopping Jaffer which included using a taser, placing him into custody, making the scene safe, and ensuring the two children and father had been provided immediate medical aid, officers should have frozen the scene [the residence]; caused the child who had been sexually assaulted & his assailant (Jaffer) to be given a sexual assault examination, at the Keller Center; authored an affidavit seeking a search warrant for Jaffer’s residence, person, cellphone, vehicle(s), business office, electronic devices (computers, iPads, etc.), and internet service provider for evidence of the crime, child pornography, and drugs -Wagstaffe said LSD was involved.

Officers should have ensured samples of Jaffer’s blood and urine had been taken and preserved, contemporaneous to the assault, for later examination -addressing any question of whether or not he had drugs onboard, at the time of the described offenses; Wagstaffe indicated LSD had possibly been involved whose clearance half-life averages 3 hours, while its metabolite clearance half-life averages 12 hours.

If Hillsborough PD did not have anyone with the requisite knowledge and or skill set to conduct such an investigation, the agency should have sought assistance from the district attorney’s office who has its own cadre of “top flight” investigators -or so they would have us believe. Certainly, once the case had been submitted to the district attorney for charging, Mr. Wagstaffe should have recognized what investigative tasks were required and ensured they were done -any golden rods Steve?

It would be interesting to learn what direction / guidance, if any, the district attorney had provided to Hillsborough PD to help them or could this be like the fraud which had occurred at the San Mateo County Transit where Wagstaffe’s assistant, Assistant District Attorney Al Serrato, characterized false debits (journal entries) and attendant felonious diversion of 2.5 million dollars of public monies as unusual accounting practices -now we know why Al, a former Special Agent, is no longer with the FBI.

The investigating officers should also have summoned the County’s crime lab personnel to examine the victim’s and suspect’ s respective clothing, injuries, and the crime scene.

In short, it appears neither the County’s domestic violence nor sexual assault investigation protocols, respectively, had been followed and, consequently, Mr. Wagstaffe had been afforded and acted upon an excuse to drop all charges for a person that matters. DA Stephen Wagstaffe didn’t even put on a preliminary hearing where a judge could have considered the evidence and decided whether it was sufficient to hold Mr. Jaffer to answer. Why not Steve?

The County’s residents deserve better, a level playing field, professional law enforcement, and justice, not the corrupt facade Mr. Wagstaffe would have you accept.

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy, Victim and Whistleblower Heinz Puschendorf.

San Mateo County Family Court is stressful enough without the illegal orders from Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos to have his Deputies interfere with a parent while in the courtroom. I can relate because in 2002 Sherif Don Horsley and UnderSheriff Greg Munks did the exact same thing to me. Had two deputies detain me and force me to leave the Family Law Court where I had a hearing. This is how the Thugs do it. Michael G. Stogner

Press Release

My name is Heinz Puschendorf- I am a 21-year veteran Deputy Sheriff of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. I was a long time Member and Representative of the San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association- being the last Past- President of the Association 2006-2008.

I am also a write-in candidate for Sheriff of San Mateo County- June 5, 2018 election.

I releasing this information about YET another series of Aggressive Bullying and multiple corrupt actions that I’ve personally experienced, as well as in representing hundreds of past/current Sheriff’s Office Employees (as recent as 2014) and/or even representing myself, which has forced me to whistle-blow Dozens of times in these past years

My message TODAY is very plain and clearly:  The San Mateo County Management structure which encompasses, but is not limited to: The Sheriff’s Office, the Human Resources Department, The District Attorney’s Office and the Board of Supervisors have all worked cooperatively to violate their Oaths of Service by harassing, defrauding employees and undermining anybody that would be able to damage the County’s Executive Management structure.

The incident I am describing today is yet another set of deeds that begins from the top (as orders being passed down through the chain of command) with the current Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, down to his Undersheriff Ed Wood, then through all of the Sheriff’s Office Management team (Assistant Sheriff’s, Captains. Lieutenants and usually ending at the rank of sergeant against line level staff. Alas, Frequently, over the past ten years, there has been Questionable Motives imposed by the Deputy Sheriff’s Association Executive Management (Mostly by the Current President) who has fallen directly in line with Carlos Bolanos, which has helped to foster, already Hostile situations, in which they can defame, defraud or embarrass individuals. Those actions have included NOT properly Representing Turmoiled Employees being pressed with arrest and/or threatened with severe punitive actions. I have knowledge of this, because, since 2008 I have assisted in filling that VOID for Employees. The Union is aware of incidents and will also just take a PASSIVE Aggressive approach to “PICK and CHOOSE” who they will defend, with the Current President making outlandish statements in the past that he “IS NOT Accountable as President to ANY Members in the Union Membership,” Although he and the Executive Board (his cronies) live “High on the Hog” from OUR Union Dues.

My current incident This past Friday, May 25, 2018 in which, under orders of Carlos Bolanos and Undersheriff Ed Wood, a Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s abused their authority, restricted my freedom/ability to voluntarily leave (I was then OFFICIALLY under arrest, not free to leave, which then led to not properly releasing me through legal process), assaulting me, harassing and threatening me, while I was awaiting the beginning of my Family Court case. Then the subsequent series of NON-actions by all of San Mateo County’s pre-ordained utilities to protect employees, whistleblowers and/or individuals who want to report misdeed, misconduct and an overall lack of really trying to find the truth of complaints:

At 900 am, I tried entering the Redwood City Courthouse building through the employee entrance, which is located on the North-side, MAIN Public Entrance, by using my Sheriff’s Office issued access card. I tried at least a dozen times (swiping my card) to enter, BUT I was denied entry. I thought it was strange as I saw others before and after me enter via the same access door (so my card should have worked as it has in my 20+ years of service).

Over the past 4 years I have been working through Disability from an on-Duty injury. And I have always entered through these public access doors. I followed proper protocol and identified myself and advised I DID NOT have any weapons to declare. I spoke to several staff members and a sergeant (later involved in this incident), as I was going to Courtroom C on the 7th Floor, where I sat with my attorney, awaiting the start of my Family Law Court case.

At 10:00 am, a Sergeant (whom I had spoken with earlier in the morning upon entering building) approached me and said I “Should step outside the Courtroom, into the hallway” because he had “something to tell me.” I told the Sergeant My Court case was next and we could speak after I was done. The Sergeant insisted I go out, so I told my Attorney that I would return shortly, after speaking to My Sergeant in the Hallway, so my case wouldn’t get delayed.

I followed my Sergeant out of the courtroom, and as I got through the door and on the railed 3-foot-wide ramp exit (which creates a fenced in feeling from the doorway), I was besieged and surrounded by Sheriff’s armed/uniformed staff (2 sergeants and 2 Deputy Sheriff’s). I immediately became scared and felt threatened since they all in unison began to speak, push and close the space around me.

I asked the Sergeants what was wrong and they said I “illegally entered the building, NOT being an employee” and I “should not have by-passed the security checkpoint”- to which I responded “I’m an employee, although injured and being defrauded of my legal Worker’s comp rights at the Direction and orders of Sheriff Bolanos and Human Resources. BUT I entered and conducted myself legally and appropriately, reminding them ALL I had at one time or another trained each of them, as well as I have been a Sheriff’s Employee longer than ANY of them.

In Fact, I am still listed as a full-time employee on non-paid status (which actually is a non-existent status), which was just recently published in a local news story in the past week. So, I told them I wanted to go back in to the Court & all (uniform staff mentioned) stopped me by grabbing my clothes and/or physically using their bodies so I could not move or leave and told me “YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK IN.”

During this entire event I was Loud, verbally, had my hands/palms raised and open to show I was not a threat and to be sure I was not misunderstood. BUT this also served as another way for the entire 7th floor to hear, then see and by coming out into the hallway, know what was happening.

I then wanted to know under what authority they were detaining me and they all told me it was a standing order and that if I wasn’t so “mentally unstable and violent” that BECAUSE of their concern for the safety of the judge, the courtroom and the public, I’d be “handcuffed and arrested” forcibly missing Family Court and I “would have lots of other bad things happen… so just relax or else.”

I then said I wanted to speak with the Transportation/Court security Lieutenant, when he spoke up (in plain clothes a few feet away on the other side of the railing, but through staff told Me again I was illegally inside of the building and I was going to be arrested as a danger since I was “unstable.”

I then explained “I am an employee” and they all became more aggressive towards me as the Lt also got in my face, then in a threatening tone said “The Sheriff said it’s a standing order and its posted outside the entrance.” The Lieutenant then told me that if I didn’t comply he’d have me arrested.

We bantered back and forth for another several minutes, when I told all of them that I don’t understand why they’d be picking on me, because I know all the rules we operate under and even at one time or another had trained them all and that they were illegally detaining me.

I then demanded to speak with the Lt’s immediate boss (Captain), but he told me there wasn’t one in. I then demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (one of the 3), But the Lt told they were also not in today.

I was being continuously pushed and prodded by the staff and in an attempt to get me to fight with them several times and all of them continued using their bodies to keep me from leaving, re-entering the courtroom or just being able to leave for a total of at least 15 minutes.

I then specifically asked about Undersheriff Woods and Sheriff Bolanos and the Lt told me don’t worry they’re aware, “BUT you violated the law, because you are NOT an employee to enter that way.”

So, after several more minutes of arguing I then advised them that I would go back to court and we could address their inappropriate actions which are ILEGAL and I was going to file complaints against them: Lt Allen said something to the effect of “Well it won’t go anywhere, except ad for you in all ways so I’m not worried.”

Several more minutes of our arguing and the Staff’s pushing, prodding of me when (someone from inside of Courtroom 7C opened the door so I was then able to scoot past and away from my Aggressors, pushing us out of the way. Although I was told I could not leave or enter my courtroom- I did so in an attempt to get protection.

I was then followed in by one of the Sergeants and he sat behind me in the courtroom as My case was called. After My hearing the Sergeant followed me over the next 30 plus minutes staying near me as I exited the courtroom (with my attorney) and followed (in close proximity behind) me while in the courthouse, until I went down to the 3rd Floor – Sheriff’s Administrative office to report the incident and file complaints.

While at the Sheriff’s Admin Office I WAS again met with and given a cold reception by another Lt (temporary -Services/Internal Affairs commander). This Lt then tried to brush off the incident until I demanded to speak with an Assistant Sheriff (since the previous Lt advised me the Undersheriff & Sheriff were a party directing the actions in this matter).

Unfortunately, this was not the first time I have whistle-blown. And in just a short time this incident was again flowing the same dysfunctional and repetitive path of so many other past cases, which were SQUASHED.

So, I again, filed complaints/crimes and wrongdoing: according to ALL policies, Orders, Contracts and legal processes: going to the Sheriff’s Office, to Human Resources, to the District Attorney’s Office and the Union.

As of Today, the past practices of trying to let a complaint fall dead to the wayside by NON-Action is why  I am taking this opportunity to Expose these ILEGAL actions, in hopes that the Media, Other Local/State/Federal Elected Officials, Residents and Voters of San Mateo County will take action, DEMAND the immediate resignation and/or follow up so as to administer Any/All other Appropriate Actions/Punishment which should be taken, to assure this type of Abuse does not happen again and that it IS NOT going to be tolerated.

There is plenty of evidence to Prove ALL my Allegations for this particular incident and My greatest HOPE is that ALL of the PAST and/or Previous Employees and staff that have been wronged will also stand up and speak out!

This has been yet another series of BULLYING and abuse of Powers that has been commonplace in Our Sheriff’s Office for Years. These actions are just like the other illegal actions by these same parties to falsely harass Juan Lopez in 2014. Juan Lopez was a write in candidate and he was fired, harassed and wrongfully prosecuted for A LONG LIST of Falsified Charges, which now HAS the Sheriff Carlos Bolanos and the District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe liable for their parts in False Charges being presented to the San Mateo Grand Jury. There is A FEDERAL Lawsuit recently filed for these allegations. I am going to be the next case against All of the same people, with an almost exact duplicated set of FALSIFIED Details.

Because I am a Write in candidate for Sheriff and opposing – not Just Carlos Bolanos, but all the other INCUMBENTS who portray the same corrupt, perverted, evil and overall criminal actions by MOST of those he has promoted and surrounded himself with at the Executive Management Administration and are also currently running for Re-election this June 5th.

I have been the whistleblower of several of the most recent incidents that have transpired, as well as many past criminal/illegal activities by Various San Mateo County Officials and Officers/Staff. This has also included my Exposing that (past Sheriff’s) Greg Munks and Don Horsley along with multiple others (including Myself) know that CARLOS BOLANOS and GREG MUNKS have LIED COMPLETELY about the 2007 Las Vegas OPERATION DOLLHOUSE Underaged SEX Slave Brothel Arrest/Detention.

My Criticism has also extended to ALL of San Mateo County:

Ø the Board of Supervisors (From at least 2007 Until and through NOW- Which includes Jerry Hill, Mark Church, Don Horsley and Rich Gordon)

Ø The District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe

Ø The County Managers (Maltbie and Bosch)

Ø Human Resources (Specifically Faiza Steele)

Ø The San Mateo County Deputy Sheriff’s Association (Mainly Current President, who was also aware of the Details, Information and evidence I uncovered)

Ø Elected Public Officials (Feinstein, Pelosi, Eshoo, Jerry Hill, Rich Gordon- to name JUST a few)

ALL of these Individuals have Culpability and are Directly connected to working on keeping Me and ANY/ALL others who know what happened (as well as with other violations) to be suppressed, Harassed and Ordered to NEVER Mention the LAS VEGAS Brothel EVER AGAIN!!! OR the Person who does speak out, they would BE DRONED OUT of the Sheriff’s Office and Fired using any and/or ALL Means Necessary to GET RID of THEM!!!

At the end of the Bolanos and the third Sheriff’s Candidate Mark Melville, Debacle – I became infuriated seeing Carlos Bolanos being so smug, with HIS Entire Administration sitting literally in front of Melville (in an intimidating presence), then there were 3 Executive Management Members and Carlos Bolanos himself approached me (spitefully, knowing I was disabled and being defrauded of ALL my Legal Rights), they each asked me HOW MY RETIREMENT WAS…. I was upset and loudly (with several witnesses) told them What Jackelopes they were and THAT I AM STILL BEING DEFRAUDED of my PAY.

Carlos Bolanos then told me he would check on things, BUT HIS understanding was that I ONLY Had to SIGN a PARTICULAR

Piece of PAPER (NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT). I then asked him if he could expedite things so I could retire and get paid, since I have not been paid in OVER A YEAR. Carlos B. said he would and, that he’d call me the next morning. At about 10:00am I had not received a call from Bolanos, so I tried calling him, but he never did. SO, I immediately went to the Elections Office to file my paperwork.

 #VOTENONINCUMBENT             #VOTECHANGE

My platform is FOR REFORM, which is Hard enough on its own, BUT with these Historical types of Coercion, My Attempting to reverse all the other Frauds being committed by and for the Sheriff’s Office (Supported by ALL Other County Admin Heads) is insurmountable Alone.

It will take All of San Mateo County (MEDIA, Politicians, Residents and ESPECIALLY VOTERS) to come together and force these individuals out and CHANGE the entire disposition and demeaner of Corrupted individuals and/or system. These Actions in Criminal Investigations would be Cause for INDICTMENTs under the RICO (or Criminal Enterprise/Syndicate) Act. NOT to mention a series of Brown Act Violations as well (for the ELECTED individuals).

I have attempted to CONTACT ALL Sources RECENTLY, BUT Before My Incident. SO, I hope Others (Politicians, Voters, the General Public and/or the FBI) will NOW take serious ACTION.

I live in an extreme state of fear, Just like Many other  of the Hundreds to Thousands  of Employees/Ex-Employees) awaiting the inevitable FINAL series of predictable Maneuvers or BLOWS by the County/Sheriff’s Office to next destroy an individual’s credibility with pure lies and search warrants, OR as Bolanos supporters have recently done, creating a hostile web-site and using Web to Cell phone technologies to negatively interact and push their PRO-Bolanos tactics, BLASTING ANY/ALL opponents in this Election.

It’s NOT Too Late to FIX, Please #standupspeakout LET Them Know, that this is NOT acceptable behavior and that these evil/criminal processes WON’T be tolerated.

Only YOU can Stop and Fix This.

Thank you respectfully,

Heinz Puschendorf

Some Reasons San Mateo County Most Corrupt in the State of California.

Micheal G. Stogner video 2012

This current election for Sheriff is a perfect example Illegally Appointed Sheriff Carlos Bolanos (July 12, 2016) filed his political papers with San Mateo County Elections Office, Statement of Organization on November 18, 2015 about a week before Sheriff Greg Munks announced that he would not be running for re-election in three years and he endorses Carlos Bolanos. That looks like at least those two conspired to have Carlos Bolanos be the next Sheriff of San Mateo County. It accomplished two things, it made Mr. Bolanos the longest running candidate in San Mateo County’s history. It also put all Sheriff Deputies on notice, if you want to succeed in your career you had better support Bolanos. Former brave Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez ran as a Write In candidate for Sheriff in 2014. He missed the filing deadline by 4-6 minutes and Mark Church would  not allow his name to be on the ballot. He choose to be a Write In candidate for Sheriff a very costly decision. He was investigated by the Sheriff’s Office, The District Attorney’s Office, and even David Silberman of the County Counsel Office helped. Juan Lopez was arrested twice once with guns to his head in his front yard in front of his children. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a press conference for TV media and announced to the world that Juan Lopez smuggled a cell phone and drugs to an inmate, and not just any inmate he was a gang member. After more than 3 years in the Court System and $120,000 legal fees spent, the Judge threw out those charges. The reason was Prosecutorial Misconduct it turns out both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office knew there was ZERO evidence that connected Juan P. Lopez to the cell phone and drugs. That didn’t seem to matter to Carlos Bolanos or Steve Wagstaffe. Think about “Those Who Matter.”

Those Who Matter: People who control investigations, who to investigate, who not to investigate, edit reports, submit recommendations to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution, filing charges with the Court when you know they are false. Lying to a Judge and submitting a false affidavit, That is a Criminal Act.

Here we are approaching 4 years in the legal system and this finally gets filed.

Detective Armando Perjuriously Alleged that Mr. Lopez Placed a Telephone Call to the Contraband Cell Phone in Order to Obtain a Search Warrant.

He made the phone calls himself.

Lopez, Juan Lopez Filing May 1, 2018May 1, 2018

Lopez Filing May 1, 2018 1Lopez Filing May 1, 2018 2Lopez Filing May 1, 2018 3Lopez Filing May 1, 2018 4Lopez Filing May 1, 2018 5

To all good and concerned citizens Please join us in San Mateo County Superior Court June 28, 2018 9:00AM as the Judge rules on this filing. Juan P. Lopez finally found a law firm to file this important document.

Thank You to Tony Serra and Maria Belyi.

San Mateo County Domestic Violence for “Those Who Matter.” SMCSO Lt. Kristina Bell case.

Bell_Kristina 1 copyWhen someone calls 9-1-1 for assistance, there is an expectation public safety / police will respond and provide the intervention and application of resources needed, to effectively resolve the situation, in a fair impartial way -one designed to protect the community, at large, and the victim, in particular. The sad little secret, amongst line law enforcement officers, in San Mateo County, is that the rhetoric by law enforcement executives and the district attorney does not match reality. For all the lofty rhetoric, police executives and the district attorney show preference to people that matter -law enforcement officers and politically connected individuals.

Just such an incident / case recently occurred, on the morning of April 22, 2018. On that occasion, Redwood City Police officers were summoned to a residence on Sanchez Street, in Redwood City, on the report of a domestic violence disturbance in which a victim had been assaulted (pushed) by her spouse, resulting in injury (bruising), her cell phone taken (preventing her from summoning assistance), and her fleeing the dwelling, in search of help. Further, the victim had told authorities there were unsecured firearms in the residence and as well as a three year old child.

Two officers and a supervisor (sergeant) had responded to this call and given the suspect in the matter, a San Mateo County Sheriff’s Lieutenant, Lieutenant Kristina Bell, a pass -neither questioning her; following the Redwood City’s polices and procedures for handling incidents of domestic violence; following the County’s domestic violence investigation protocol of which Redwood City PD is a signatory; seeking an emergency protective order; seizing the firearms present, within the residence; and or attempting the interview and recording of all parties involved.

Such conduct by the responding officers and their supervisor flies in the face of Redwood City PD’ s professed position of aggressively addressing all domestic violence incidents as well as the district attorney’s published position, on the subject.

Was this incident and the manner in which it was addressed / resolved an anomaly, an aberration not condoned by officials? Sadly no. It follows a familiar pattern, in San Mateo County, amongst law enforcement executives and the district attorney, in giving persons that matter a pass -Sheriff’s Sgt Jason Peardon breaking into the Belmont residence of his in-laws, assaulting his estranged wife and her male companion, and Belmont PD documenting the matter as an information report versus domestic violence, etc..

The intervention expected and demanded by the community did not occur. Instead, a domestic violence suspect was left at large with ready access to firearms and a victim and child left in harms way.

 San Mateo County  Countywide DV Protocol 2011

Redwood City Police Department Current Domestic Violence Policyasof42117

Welcome to San Mateo County

Redwood City Residents should be asking the Mayor and City Council to meet with the Police Chief and find out how did this Protocol Violation happen under his watch. When was CPS first notified?

Citizen Oversight Committee of Redwood City Police Department, San Mateo County Sheriff Office and District Attorney’s Office is a must have, to solve this illegal behavior.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe refuses to answer ACLU questions regarding June election. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner & Sarah Navratil

San Mateo County residents are just starting to realize that they are responsible for the behavior of the Sheriff and the District Attorney’s Office. Steve Wagstaffe so far is running unopposed in the June 5, 2018 election. That in itself should cause the residents to ask Why? Out of all the employees in the DA’s Office there is not one who believes he/she could do a better job than Steve Wagstaffe. Not one person willing to offer the residents a choice for one of the most important and powerful elected offices in San Mateo County.

Just look at the Former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez criminal case for Abuse of Authority, Prosecutorial Misconduct.

The Write In candidate time period ends May 22, 2018

We recommend voters vote on June 5, 2018, So far there are 2 Write In candidates one for Sheriff and one for Supervisor District 2. Lets see if some brave person will be a Write In candidate for District Attorney.

Sheriff Write In Candidate Heinz Puschendorf tells the Alamanac “Ordered not to talk about Vegas or mention it.”

By Michael G. Stogner

The Almanac May 9, 2018 article by Dave Boyce, “Challengers square off against an appointed incumbent for Sheriff.”

Reporter Dave Boyce did not think this statement was worth a follow up question. Why?

Update: I spoke with Heinz by phone and he informed me that Dave Boyce did know it was Carlos Bolanos who ordered him not to talk. Dave Boyce left that out of the article. Why?

April 21, 2007 is when San Mateo County’s top two Sheriff & Undersheriff known as 1&2 were caught and detained (how long remains to be answered) as CUSTOMERS in a single family house that had Human Trafficked Sex Slaves including a Child in it.

April 21, 2007 Heinz Puschendorf was the President of the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies Association, DSA. He was the Go to Guy. He started receiving phone calls from Las Vegas around 10:15 PM that night. This is the only SMCSO Deputy who was not in Las Vegas that night that would know what happened that night.

You would think that Dave Boyce would see the opportunity to finally break the truth free here. He could have asked Heinz, Who Ordered You to not talk about Vegas or mention it? I might be able to help the Almanac out here. Heinz Puschendorf told me,

“Carlos Bolanos ordered Heinz Puschendorf the President of the DSA not to talk about Vegas or mention it.” “Directed down the chain of command the same order.”
