Another El Granada Man, Arrested for Lewd Acts with 11 yr old girl.

By Michael G. Stogner

It’s time San Mateo County residents are honest about sex crimes against children especially those living in areas where the Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement Agency.

From the Grand Jury Report:

Sheriff’s Office Sex Crimes Unit 

In 2007 the Sheriff’s Office discovered that the two assigned detectives were not funded. They were then eliminated from the budget. Further, in April 2007 to fund the Jail Planning Lieutenant; the Sheriff combined the duties of the SHOP sergeant with the general crimes sergeant. Therefore, in April 2007, the Sheriff’s Office eliminated funding for the dedicated sexual offense enforcement unit within the investigations division resulting in case coverage of one sergeant (25% time), one detective (50% time) and two other detectives (25% total time). This represents a 75% reduction from four dedicated Full-Time-Equivalents (FTEs) to one FTE shared among four persons, as well as the elimination of county-wide coordination among cities. The Sheriff’s Office budget approved by the BOS shows the following appropriations for SHOP: 

What else happened in 2007 involving the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office top 1&2 guys?

What happened in early 2010, “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office” Porn and Violent Rape Video being shared with 45 of SMCSO’s finest MEN. What did the Supervisors do about it?

How much money has San Mateo County Taxpayers invested/spent because of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s behavior? On October 3, 2018 CSO Joesph Gonzales was one of the SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Office Employees involved in the Homicide of Chinedu V. Okobi. Everybody knew that including Sheriff Bolanos and his Public Information Officer PIO.

You don’t see CSO Joseph Gonzales listed. Ask Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos why? Ask the Supervisors why?

It’s been almost 3 years since Chinedu V. Okobi was not only killed by Six SMCSO Employees, they all failed to provide even the most basic medical attention like check his pulse for the next 9 minutes after his last sound was heard. Sergeant Irfan Zaidi provided a False Police Report 18 days later about how he ordered the Handcuffs removed from Chinedu V. Okobi. An obvious false statement.

How many closed door sessions has the Board of Supervisors held on the two Okobi Lawsuits?

Thank You, A.G. Rob Bonta

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County can use your help, Please Investigate Tim Singer, Errol Chang, Yanira Serrano Garcia, Chinedu V. Okobi, Sandra Lee Harmon and Roger Allen Homicide cases just to name a few.

Note: I’m not suggesting Tim Singer was killed by Police, but the Investigation into his Homicide was done by San Mateo County Sheriff Office, It was not investigated as a Hate crime and look to the 2 Death Certificates cause of death.

“One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said.

Bonta forms special teams
Attorney general opens field offices to investigate fatal police shootings across state.
By Patrick McGreevy
SACRAMENTO — The state Department of Justice has opened field offices throughout California to investigate police shootings that kill unarmed civilians and has told law enforcement agencies that they must notify the state whenever such incidents occur, Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta said Wednesday.
The actions, including the opening of investigative offices in Los Angeles and Riverside, were in response to a new law that took effect July 1 requiring Bonta’s office to independently probe all fatal police shootings of unarmed civilians to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against officers.
Bonta said he expected the two new teams, one for Northern California and one for Southern California, would investigate 40 to 50 fatal police shootings each year based on historic trends.
“One of the most important tasks ahead for public safety and our society is building and maintaining trust between our communities and law enforcement,” Bonta said. “Impartial, fair investigations and independent reviews of officer-involved shootings are one essential component for achieving that trust.”
The attorney general said 27 special agents and six supervisory agents would make up the California Police Shooting Investigation Teams. The Northern California office is in Sacramento.
Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento), author of the new law, said he was concerned that the state Department of Justice had denied requests from some community leaders to undertake independent investigations of several high-profile police shootings.
The state DOJ has traditionally deferred to county prosecutors, who have handled such cases after investigations by the law enforcement agencies involved.
“Police shouldn’t police themselves, and the current system is fraught with conflicts of interest,” McCarty said during debate on the bill. He noted he had first proposed such legislation in 2015 and since then more than 800 people had been shot and killed by police in California.
The measure, Assembly Bill 1506, was opposed by some law enforcement groups, including the California State Sheriffs’ Assn., which said it could result in duplicate state and local investigations and that the state DOJ lacked the resources and was not equipped to take on the new responsibilities.
The measure “bypasses local investigatory processes, including established agreements to have outside agencies investigate officer-involved uses of force,” the association said in its opposition letter to lawmakers last year.
On Wednesday, Cory Salzillo, the association’s legislative director, said in a statement: “The sheriffs continue to work closely with the attorney general and Department of Justice on the implementation of procedures for the authority described in AB 1506.”
Under the law, the DOJ must investigate the fatal police shootings and submit a written report that states the facts of the case, its analysis, provides a conclusion on each issue raised by the shooting and recommends whether policies of the law enforcement agency should be changed.
If the DOJ determines criminal charges are warranted, it would prosecute the officers.
Bonta said his office would also continue to conduct “pattern and practice” investigations of law enforcement agencies if there appear to be problems beyond one incident. Those kinds of investigations, aimed at determining whether reforms should be pursued, are ongoing involving the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Vallejo Police Department.
On Wednesday, Bonta formally launched the new investigative teams and released the guidelines and protocols his office would use in investigating fatal police shootings, saying his agency will make public its investigative findings, including explanations when a decision is made not to seek a criminal prosecution.
Bonta said investigators would be deployed throughout the state with an emphasis on areas where there had historically been the most police shootings.
The field offices will allow investigators to get to the scenes of shootings quickly, he said.
The shooting investigation teams “will work in coordination with local responding agencies throughout the investigation of the officer-involved shooting, and members … will serve as concurrent, independent special agent investigators of these critical incidents,” the DOJ said in a statement.
Once an investigation is completed, the case will be turned over to the DOJ’s Special Prosecutions Section within the Criminal Law Division for review.
Administrative or civil investigations remain the responsibility of the law enforcement agency that employs the involved officers.
Bonta was a state assemblyman before Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed him attorney general in March to fill a vacancy left by Xavier Becerra’s departure to become U.S. Health and Human Services secretary in the Biden administration.
As a lawmaker, Bonta was a co-author of the legislation he is now implementing.
He said during a news conference Wednesday that the investigations would not be easy but that he expected local law enforcement would cooperate.
“I’m honestly not expecting a lot of pushback or tension or obstacles,” Bonta said. “We will be prepared for any that do arise.”
Representatives of the LAPD did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the new state investigation teams.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will “enthusiastically work collaboratively” with the DOJ in investigating fatal shootings of unarmed civilians, said Capt. John Satterfield, adding that the “goal is to assist the DOJ in completing a comprehensive, fair and impartial joint investigation.”
The state budget approved for the fiscal year that began July 1 includes $13 million to staff the investigation teams.
The DOJ said before Bonta’s appointment that it would need $26 million to properly investigate the 40 deadly police shootings that the state averaged each year.
He said Californians deserved an independent and transparent process for determining whether police officers acted properly when shooting unarmed civilians. He also said the issue was personal for him.
“I’ve heard firsthand the hurt and the pain that too many families and communities feel in the moments after these incidents,” Bonta said. “I have witnessed the lack of trust that these investigations will be treated fairly by our criminal justice system.”

By Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

Update: Next Court Dates are July 21, 2021 @ 1:30 PM and September 21, 2021 @ 9:00 AM

If you would like to listen you can call 1-206-279-9589 Code 599028 at 1:30 PM.

You may recall Barbara Bonilla was much more than just the Execute Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League when she was escorted out of her Office on February 10, 2020.

She was the Campaign Manager for Carlos G. Bolanos for Sheriff 2018. She also worked at Redwood City Police Department for Carlos G. Bolanos when he was the Police Chief there.

She was a:

San Mateo County Sheriff Employee

San Mateo County Parks & Recreation Committee, Commissioner

Redwood City Rotary Member

California PAL and National PAL Board Member.

How is the SMC Sheriff Activities League a 501 C?

What Has the SMC Sheriff Activities League done to make sure this NEVER happens again, since the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation by the State of California Attorney General and the San Mateo County Sheriff Office, which any reasonable person would know was an obvious Conflict of Interest.

Here is a short list of who knew about the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation.

Bill Nicolet, Assistant Sheriff Gregory Rothaus, Coastside Lutheran Church, Correctional Medical Group, Dani Gasparini & Alyn Beals, David Amann, Donald Hack, Greg Munks, Henry Gaw, Jeff Ira, Kiwoba Allaire, Lori & Eric Lochtefeld, Jim Hartnett & Rosanne Foust, Assistant Sheriff John Munsey, Maloney & Associates, Marshall Realty, Jonathan Shipman, Neil & Kate Layton,Pete Liebengood & Alicia Aguirre, Phillip Raiser, Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, Steve Wagstaffe, Trisha Sanchez, Warren Slocum, Don Horsley. Adam Alberti.

San Mateo County News.com was the first News Media to write about Barbara Bonilla being on Administrative Leave from Sheriff Activities League Headquarters in Redwood City.

February 28, 2020 Article

How is that possible? With all those people who had knowledge about Barbara Bonilla, that Not One of the SEVEN Print Media in San Mateo County wrote an article about it in January or February?

The California State Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting Barbara Bonilla, What have you heard from them about this case? How did they come up with these charges? Is Barbara Bonilla really the only person involved?

Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay.

By Michael G. Stogner

Jimenez-Rarback Report

Tonight the City of Half Moon Bay Council voted 4 to 1 to place the Jimenez-Rarback Report on the June 15, 2021 Meeting Agenda. Harvey Rarback said this is a Beginning of a Conversation. Joaquin Jimenez spoke about safety for the residents of Half Moon Bay. He said it perfectly “if you even think about your safety you are not safe.”

Half Moon Bay is a City that is being forced by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office to discuss having a Police Chief or not.

This is a conversation that is taking place all across America, this is the right time for this. Now it is time for the public to get involved.

It should be noted: Mark Melville Candidate for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022 has read the Jimenez-Rarback Report and has no objections to it. That means in 12 months the Residents of SMC can have a different Sheriff and that means Half Moon Bay will not need to create a new position of Police Chief.

East Palo Alto is having Emergency/Special Closed Meeting tonight at 5:30 PM

By Michael G. Stogner

No matter what it is called it is a Closed Session Meeting but that doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it before it starts.

Subject Matter is the Termination of the City Attorney

What caused this to be an Emergency later reduced to a Special Closed Session in the first place?

City Attorneys and City Managers serve at the pleasure of the City Council and can be terminated anytime.

If you would like to speak at this meeting the City is asking you to sign up in advance link below.

Emergency/Special Closed Session TONIGHT

As an example the City of Daly City should be having this conversation about Terminating their City Attorney and City Manager for the No Body Worn Camera’s and the Roger Allen Homicide by the Daly City Police Officers on April 7, 2021. They have refused to identify the Police Officer who killed Roger Allen, Why?

Update: May 20, 2021 4:15 PM

Thursday May 20, 2021                                         From: Ruben Abrica, resident and Vice Mayor

Regarding:  Open and Transparent Government versus Secret and Private abuse of power by officials

TO:  Residents of East Palo Alto:

Today, a rushed and imposed closed session meeting of the City Council is scheduled for 5:30 pm, with barely 24 hours notice to the public.  Before going into closed session, the public has the right to make comments or ask questions, including elected officials if they wish to inform and explain their views.

I, for one, will not be silent nor complicit in what I see as an attempt by three councilmembers to bypass our legal and ethical responsibilities to be open and honest with the public and protect the City from potential  liability, legal and financial.  I therefore want to comment and ask questions as part of the public process.

A. Emails by public officials in relation to city government are public not private

1.  In an email sent late Tuesday May 18 by Council Member Lopez and also representing Council Members Wallace-Jones and Gauthier there is a call for an emergency meeting of the City Council with the topic of

‘Termination –City Attorney’.   A second email is then sent cleaning up the first one stating that it’s a ‘special’ meeting and now omitting the reference to ‘Termination –City Attorney’.  If you notice the published agenda cites the vague and general category of  ‘Public employee Discipline/Dismissal/Release’ (Agenda Item 3.1)

2.  Whether a meeting is called by the Mayor, as is the normal procedure, or imposed by three members as is the case here, the matter should be approached with respect for the public to be notified with plenty of time so they may comment or ask questions about any potential major decisions.  For today, barely 24 hours notice was given and the purpose of the closed session is now hidden from the public.

3.  Did three council members already discuss privately the termination of the city attorney?

Did three council members already reach a decision?  Both would be a violation of the Brown Act

What is the ‘emergency’ alluded to and then backtracked?  What’s behind this power move?

B. Let’s not attack the messenger because the message makes officials uncomfortable 

1.  Why is the Office of the City Attorney being attacked and ambushed with such speed?

2.  Whenever city government personnel investigations are conducted as a result of complaints, and including investigations involving elected officials, the best practice has been to retain an independent investigator and not an employee of the city to perform timely investigations of personnel matters.  This is what the City Attorney has done and in my opinion correctly so.  And the City Manager as part of his job responsibilities is then expected to take action as deemed necessary.  I, as one of five people who supervise the City Manager expect him to bring timely closure on all personnel cases so as not expose the City to legal and/or financial liabilities.  The public’s money should never be put at risk by negligence or politicking.

3.  Why was council member Lopez  at the Tuesday May 18 meeting questioning the continuation of an independent personnel investigator as proposed by the City Attorney? (Item 3.8 of the agenda) 

C. Full Disclosure.  No Hiding.  No Cover Ups. Correct Mistakes, Serve the People 

1.  As a founding member of the City Government of East Palo Alto, I am, at this moment , remembering people not with us anymore who sacrificed so much so that our community could learn to exercise self-government and self-determination.  Let’s honor them by practicing honest and transparent government. 

2. This closed session meeting is a very troubling example of secrecy and underhanded tactics to avoid facing the public.  It’s an assault on our local institution of government , intended to democratically serve the people not the egos of politicians.  I, for one, will not participate in this farce of a ‘closed’ session.  There are real urgent needs of the community to be addressed instead of this destructive power game playing.

Half Moon Bay Police Reform Zoom Meeting May 18, 2021 Item 3D

By Michael G. Stogner

Making Half Moon Bay safe for it’s residents.

Great work Half Moon Bay City Council and Resident David Eblovi, Thank You for leading the entire County in Law Enforcement reform. If it turns out that the only resistance is from Sheriff Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel David Silberman don’t worry both of those obstacles can be gone with the election of Mark Melville for Sheriff in 2022. That’s 18 months from now.

“It’s my understanding their ordinance will have no legal basis on our services, nor on the contract,” Bolanos said. “It’s basically unenforceable.”

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos finds those restrictions “problematic” and unenforceable.

Even if the ordinance is approved by the council, it likely wouldn’t have any bearing on the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. Because of the county’s contract with Half Moon Bay, the city can’t legislate changes until the contract is up for renegotiation, Bolanos said. The Sheriff’s Office’s contract with the city doesn’t expire until July 2022

How difficult could it possibly be, HMB has only 2 Deputies on duty per shift.

The proposed ordinance, which was co-written by councilmembers Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez with the help of resident David Eblovi, states that a law enforcement officer could not stop a car for failing to signal a turn, having expired license tags, or having a defective tail light. In terms of restraining suspects, the ordinance would ban the use of Tasers, chokeholds and prohibit officers from placing people in a prone position while handcuffed. It would require them to be moved on their side immediately if necessary.

The ordinance would also mandate that when dealing with someone who is a threat to themselves or others, officers must wait for backup from another officer or a mental health professional before initiating contact. In addition, officers would also be required to retreat and take cover before firing at an individual. Jimenez noted that public input on this ordinance should be encouraged and that dialogue with law enforcement would be key to making substantial changes happen.

“It’s in our best interest to listen to our community, to see what is going on and if there has to be any kind of changes to make our community safer,” Jimenez said.

While this ordinance would restrict the actions of law enforcement, Rarback believes it would instead give deputies


ORDINANCE NO. C-2021-_______
AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF HALF MOON BAY

CALIFORNIA AMENDING CHAPTER 2.33, SPECIFIC POLICING POLICIES

THE CITY COUNCIL OF HALF MOON BAY DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. Findings: The City Council finds and declares as follows:

(a) The municipal code of the City of Half Moon Bay requires periodic updates to reflect current information and changes in law, to provide clarification to the community, and to provide for improved customer service and administration of City business.

(b) Setting a clear understanding for the behavior of law enforcement and peace officers serving the Half Moon Bay community is critical to building and maintaining trust between the community and the City’s law enforcement providers.

(c) Protecting law enforcement officers and the community from undue risk of harm as a result of unnecessary interactions or escalations between armed officers and the public is critical to protecting the public safety of all of Half Moon Bay’s residents, and especially those who may be at statistically high risk of a negative outcome due to mental illness, substance abuse issues, race, housing status, or immigration status.

(d) There is no statutory requirement that the City of Half Moon Bay enforce California Vehicle Code. Therefore the City may, and should, selectively enforce CA Vehicle Code if it results in less pervasive fear or a better standard of living for its people.

(e) It is in the interests of the City of Half Moon Bay for peace officers to have operable and operating video and sound recording devices at all times that they are in public or are engaging in policing activities.

(f) A significant portion of the at-risk population of Half Moon Bay lives in reasonable fear of encounters with law enforcement providers. These fears are justified by the fact that the current law enforcement agency serving greater Half Moon Bay has had numerous recent fatal encounters with individuals who suffered from mental health issues. Therefore, it is in the interests of the public and the officers who serve here to minimize the number and types of such interactions, and when interactions do occur for the City to insure that the interests of all parties are protected to the extent possible.

Section 2. Municipal Code Update (Specific Policing Policies) including revisions to Chapter 2.33 of the Half Moon Bay Municipal Code is adopted as set forth in Exhibit “A” to this Ordinance shown for introduction as deletions in strike through and additions in underline.

Section 3Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council herby declares that it would have passed this Ordinance and adopted this Ordinance and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more section, subsections, sentences, clauses or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.

Section 4Publication. The City Clerk of the City of Half Moon Bay is hereby directed to publish this Ordinance, or the title hereof as a summary, pursuant to Government Code Section 36933, once within fifteen (15) days after its passage in the Half Moon Bay Review, a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Half Moon Bay.

Section 5Effective date. This Ordinance shall take effect and be in force on the thirtieth (30th) day from and after its final passage.

INTRODUCED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Half Moon Bay, California,

Held on the 18th day of May, 2021, by the following vote:

Anne Oliva’s Fundraiser for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. was a large well educated Black Man walking on the sidewalk southbound on El Camino Real in Millbrae on October 3, 2018. Anne Oliva was a Millbrae City council member that day, and has been Silent all this time. He was not running in and out of traffic like Sheriff Bolanos said he was. He did Not Immediately assault Sheriff Deputy Wang after exiting his patrol vehicle like Sheriff Bolanos said he was.

Chinedu V. Okobi was San Mateo County’s George Floyd.

Anne Oliva

How can anybody support Law Enforcement in San Mateo County that Lies to the Public? Ask Anne Oliva

No mention of being tased 7 times and the weight of 6 bodies on top of Chinedu Okobi, O.C. spray to face. Okobi was dead on El Camino in Millbrae the day. Bolanos knew all of this when he issued this Release.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos leaves out one name. CSO Joseph Gonzales the 6th Sheriff Employee Involved. Why?

It’s not surprising that San Mateo County Community Leaders support this Dishonest behavior. The question is Why?
