Mark D. Melville for SMC Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

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

San Mateo County, California is just a little bit different than most counties. There are seven English print Newspapers aka Advertising Businesses. Mark D. Melville has learned a very important lesson about them during his 2018 Campaign for San Mateo County Sheriff. I’ll give just one example which any of you can confirm with Jon Mays and Jerry Lee of the San Mateo Daily Journal.

Mark D. Melville told all of the Editors that his boss Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Guess how many of the Advertising Businesses informed their readers about that fact. None of the seven print media. KQED published it so did San Mateo County News.com.

Any reasonable thinking resident/voter in San Mateo County would have known that Mark Melville’s statement was in fact simply the truth.

Currently there are three people who claim they will be candidates for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022, all three have until March 11, 2022 to file with the Elections Office. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraisng event at a Millbrae councilwoman’s residence. SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus who was recently appointed the misleading title of City of Millbrae Police Chief. The reality is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is the Police Chief for all Cities who contract with the Sheriff Office for Law Enforcement Services. Half Moon Bay City Councilmen Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez were brave enough to bring that little secret to the Public’s attention.

I first met Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville at a meeting in Foster City where he came to introduce himself and promote his candidacy for Sheriff 2018. I told him the exact same thing I told Sheriff Deputy Juan Pablo Lopez who announced he was running for Sheriff in 2014, that was “You are either very brave or very naive.” In the 2018 Election Mark Melville got 52,996 votes.

I think most of my readers know by now that I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 20 years. I am glad to see a competitive election for one of the most powerful Elected Office in the County.

One obvious question I have for SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus is are you the Female Sheriff Deputy that sent me, Michael G. Stogner the “Gross Misconduct in the San Mateo County Sheriff Office.” Whistleblower Complaint in early 2010? This was a 16 page report identifying 45 SMCSO Male Employees sharing Porn and a Violent Rape Video on County computers in the 400 County Center Building.

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff Office.”

2010 “Gross Misconduct in San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office” p.2

If you are not that Brave Female SMC Sheriff Deputy then I think you would have to explain why not? If you are then I’d say Bravo welcome to the campaign.

Another question for Captain Christina Corpus and her husband who is a San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. What did you do after learning of the Embezzlement and Money Laundering Investigation of the Sheriff Activity League Executive Director Barbara Bonilla? Captain Corpus is on the SAL Board of Directors.

SAL Board of Directors

Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville can be contacted by phone at 650-730-3187 if you have any questions or doubts about him running in the 2022 election. You might ask him why is he retired from the SMCSO? I’ll give you a hint, He has a low tolerance for abuse from the Sheriff. Another thing to think about is Mark Melville lives on the coast which means the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office is the Law Enforcement provider. Think about that for just one moment, that is why I said “You are either very brave or naive” back in 2018. Today I say “You are very brave.” he is not naive.

Call him and set up ZOOM meetings with your questions and concerns.

Google to Employees, You must be Vaccinated.

By Michael G. Stogner

October 18, 2021 is the target date for all Google employees to be back in the offices.

In a July 28, 2021 e-mail sent to more than 130,000 worldwide employees CEO Sundar Pichai announced that return to work date and disclosed that once offices are fully reopened, everyone working there will have to be vaccinated.

That announcement seems to be pretty straight forward and clear.

The real San Mateo County.

By Michael G. Stogner

Chinedu Valentine Okobi R.I.P.

Yesterday July 20, 2020, 21 months after Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Killed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi on El Camino Real in Millbrae/San Bruno The Supervisors discussed in Closed Session the progress of the two Civil Lawsuits that the relatives have brought against San Mateo County and a long list of Employees who were involved in the Misinformation aka Lying to the Residents of SMC about what actually occurred on October 3, 2018.

This happens every time Law Enforcement in San Mateo County kills a man or woman. The San Mateo County Media, San Mateo County Counsel, and San Mateo County Supervisors join in the character assassination of the DECEASED.

In Chinedu’s case everyone knows by now that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has No Plan in place on how to make a Pedestrian Stop. Thats right Chinedu Okobi was simply walking down the sidewalk while Black when Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang spotted him while he was traveling northbound in his patrol car. He activated his lights which activated his dashboard video camera which shows him making a U-turn.

Within 8 minutes Chinedu was Tased 7 times, struck with extended baton, Dogpiled by SIX SMC Employees and sprayed with O.C. spray in the face at close range while being handcuffed where he died. From that moment on San Mateo County started to promote the false story of “He was breathing and had a pulse when the Sheriff’s Office Employees turn him over to the AMR people.”

Nothing could be further from the Truth.

There is NO EVIDENCE that any of the Six Employees checked Chinedu Okobi’s pulse or provided ANY Life Saving measures after he was handcuffed and approximately 9:30 minutes passed before ARM people touched him.

How much Taxpayer Money has SMC Supervisors approved for this legal action? How much have they spent to date?

Today 9:00 AM U.S. Court for the 2 Civil cases

Kaylan Charles Freeman in Court July 14, 2021, 9:00 AM

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: 9:00 AM Phone 1-503-300-6847 Code 438807

This is the Nine Year Rape/Sexual Assault Investigation by San Mateo County Sheriff Office if you believe Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Public Information Officer Rosemerry Blankswade.

The Sheriff’s Office had been building the case since 2013 when the first victim in the county came forward. Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Rosemerry Blankswade said the initial reports were “unfortunately vague or didn’t include a lot of detail.” And it wasn’t until a case linked to Freeman surfaced in a neighboring jurisdiction, coupled with a witness identifying Freeman, that the San Mateo County investigation was reinvigorated.

The Sheriff’s Office claim is that they had no idea who he was until January 2021.

Here is why that statement is Impossible to be true.

On April 3, 2014 at 11:25 AM San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Ceferino Gonzales served Kaylan Charles Freeman with a Temporary Restraining Order and Notice to Appear in San Mateo County Superior Court on April 17, 2014 in Honorable Judge Joseph Scott’s Courtroom. He was served at the same El Granada residence that he was recently arrested at.

That means Kaylan Freeman was properly served by a SMCSO Sergeant 15 days before the Hearing date.

SMCSO Sergeant C. Gonzales signed the Proof of Service on April 18, 2014 one day after the Hearing was removed from Calendar reason NO PROOF OF SERVICE FILED.

Proof of Service is a very important part of the Legal Process. It not rocket science the server must by at least 18 years old, the person being served must be served at least 5 days before the hearing date, and Proof of Service must be filed with the Court before the Hearing date in order to proceed.

Why did SMCSO Sergeant Gonzales sign the POS the day after the Hearing date?

Why did SMCSO Sergeant Gonzales file it with the Court 5 days after he signed it?

How many San Mateo County young girls and young women have been Raped and or Sexually Assaulted since 2012 because of the Sheriff’s Office reckless regard for their safety.

Kaylan Charles Freeman is in SMC Jail on $5,250,000.00 Bail.

Attorney General Rob Bonta should add this to his long list of things to do.

Note: For those of you who would like to listen, I will publish the Phone number and Code on this article as soon as it is known which Courtroom is hearing this case.

City of Half Moon Bay, When to Notice the Public?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tonight June 24, 2021 at 5PM the City of Half Moon Bay’s Public Safety Sub-Committee is holding a public meeting at the Library.

They published the Notice last night at about 4:30 P.M. on the City’s website.

The Notice

As some of you know Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez are doing their best to protect the residents of their community.

They both brought to the attention of SMC the NEED for a Chief of Police in Half Moon Bay. Captain Saul Lopez has that title but it turns out to be a pretend title. The Same is true for San Carlos, Millbrae and every city and town patrolled by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him getting out of his patrol vehicle. He was responding to a Non Emergency 911 call. He tampered with evidence at the scene. There were false statements made by both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office.

If that sounds familiar it should the Homicides of Chinedu Okobi and Sandra Lee Harmon both had the same results. There were false statements made by both the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office.

One thing has changed The City of Half Moon Bay asked Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman to provide to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS for the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide to verify the Governments Story that she fired first and Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Worn Camera. That seems like a simple straight forward request. They both declined to do so.

The City of Half Moon Bay then sent a letter to the Attorney General of the State of California requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Investigators.

One good way to reduce the public attendance is to Notice late and put Public Comment at the end of the meeting.

City of Half Moon Bay Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting June 24th.

By Michael G. Stogner

This is the City response after tabling the Jimenez-Rarback Report last week. Three of the council members want more discussion from the public, more listening sessions. They don’t think 7 years since Yanira Serrano Garcia’s Homicide by a sole San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy with No Plan on how to handle the Non Emergency Medical 911 call by her brother Tony Serrano is enough to take corrective action. Of course it is.

The Jimenez-Harback Report called for the creation of a Chief of Police for Half Moon Bay. A position with authority that answers to the City council. That seems like a strange request since Half Moon Bay has Sheriff Captain Saul Lopez who has attended many recent Zoom meetings he is identified as the Chief of Police of Services.

Joaquin Jimenez and Harvey Rarback have discovered what many in San Mateo County Government have known for a long time. The city has absolutely No say in how Sherif Carlos G. Bolanos provides Law Enforcement/Public Safety Services.

The Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020 is a perfect example. Sheriff Bolanos told the world there was a Shootout and Ms. Harmon fired first at Deputy Dominguez. Of course if that Official Statement were true nobody would blame Deputy Dominguez for returning fire causing the death of Ms. Harmon. He told his Sergeant he fired 5-6 rounds. He actually fired 11 rounds, He failed to mention he fired at her first, and also while she was unarmed with her hands above her head and her back towards him. Ms. Harmon was shot three times in the back all Fatal. He also failed to mention he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera.

The AXON LOG RECORDS keep a precise record of all devices involved in a Critical Incident, example when they were turned on/off.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman are the lead opposition for making the AXON LOG RECORDS Public.

Those Records would prove the Government’s Official Statement to be true, Why won’t they release them?

The City of Half Moon Bay has requested those records and have been denied.

The Public Safety Subcommittee Meeting is set for June 24, 2021 5:00 P.M. at the Library

I recommend Half Moon Bay Invite Hon. Judge Lisa Novak, Rachel A. Quintana and Retired San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte to attend a future meeting.

HMB Council Meeting June 15, 2021, The Jimenez-Rarback Report Item 3A.

By Michael G. Stogner

For meeting of: June 15, 2021

From City Manager Bob Nesbit.

RECOMMENDATION:

Receive a presentation on the report from Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback, receive public comment, discuss the report, and provide further direction as necessary.

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no fiscal impact from receiving this presentation. However, the report is comprehensive and would have fiscal impacts on the City if implemented.

STRATEGIC ELEMENT:

This action supports the Healthy Communities and Public Safety elements of the Strategic Plan.

BACKGROUND:

On May 28, 2021, the City Council received a report from resident David Eblovi entitled The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay. At its June 1, 2021, Council meeting, Council directed staff to agendize an item for the June 15, 2021 meeting to receive a presentation on the report.

DISCUSSION:

Two guest speakers have been invited by Councilmembers Jimenez and Rarback to discuss the Report and add their voices to the general conversation about public safety in Half Moon Bay. Dr. Greg Woods will focus comments on ethics and accountability in policing, and Sergeant Carl Tennenbaum SFPD (Ret.), will focus comments on the benefits of civilian responders to low-risk calls. Their bios have been provided to the Council under separate cover and are on file with the City Clerk.

At the beginning of the item, staff recommends that the mayor present protocols and an agenda for how the item will go including approximate times for various sections. The item will conclude with Council deliberation and direction.

ATTACHMENT: The Jimenez-Rarback Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay

Thank You Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez for getting this Important Conversation on the Agenda. It should have been on in 2014 when Yanira Serrano Garcia was killed by a San Mateo Cpinty Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his patrol vehicle. He had ZERO Plan, He Tampered with the Evidence. That is exactly what happened at the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide May 5, 2020, NO PLAN and Tampering with the Evidence.

Two Council Members are finally doing what every Elected Official in SMC should have been doing for years.

SMC Supervisor President David Canepa does it again.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC Supervisor President David Canepa

He might consider working for the Chamber of Commerce, he is Hosting a Big Party June 15th in Colma.

I recommend that he name the Daly City Police Officer that killed Roger Allen on April 7, 2021 that would be more inline with what a Supervisor should be doing for his constituents. He could take a stand of Demanding Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and County Counsel Attorney David Silberman releasing to the Public the AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay.

Since everyone knows San Mateo County has an International Airport within a couple of miles from this party, maybe it would be a better communication to warn about the Delta Variant also known as B.1.617.2, was first identified in India but has since been found in 60 countries, including the U.S. and United Kingdom, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious disease expert, said.

The Delta variant is believed to be even more transmissible than the Alpha variant, or B.1.1.7, which was first identified in Britain and has become the dominant strain in California and the U.S.

Another option would be to explain the County’s Involvement in the 9 month study in 2019 called the Crimson Contagion Exercise of 2019.

Crimson Contagion Functional Exercise of 2019

I’m not really sure that having a PARTY just weeks before the MASSIVE Evictions start in San Mateo County is such a cool idea. Has everybody in San Mateo County been vaccinated who wishes to be?

The Real San Mateo County Government, so much for Transparency.

By Michael G. Stogner

As a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 21 years. This 12 page Defendants Reply below by San Mateo County’s Finest is why I recommend whenever asked by a loved one or family member who has just lost a relative to a Homicide by San Mateo County Law Enforcement. First I say I am Not an attorney, then I say before you do anything else start interviewing a Law Firm to represent you. Don’t wait to grieve take this action first, then start crying and asking all the normal questions.

Missing from this filing is San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman, Why? He and the San Mateo Counsel are responsible for refusing to provide the Public with the AXON LOG RECORDS in the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide in Half Moon Bay May 5, 2020. Also missing is San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy, he was called twice from the crime scene that night for some reason. I’ve never seen that before.

It is because of this exact type of misbehavior by Government that HMB Council Members Harvey Rarback and Joaquin Jimenez Report on Policing and Public Safety in Half Moon Bay is on the agenda for the June 15, 2021 meeting by ZOOM. No other Elected Officials in all of San Mateo County have stood up to protect the Residents of their community like these two are doing right this minute.
