Sandra L. Harmon, Andres Gaurdado both Shot in Back with Hands up.

By Michael G. Stogner

What did Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. and Andres Gaurdado R.I.P. have in common. They were both killed by Sheriff Deputies in their counties. Sandra was shot 3 times in the back and Andres was shot 5 times in the back all 8 shots were FATAL. Both Sandra and Andres had their Hands Up above their Heads when they were shot.

Who doesn’t want to get to the truth here? The list is long.

In San Mateo Mateo County the short list is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Coroner Robert Foucrault, County Counsel John Beiers, Charles Joseph, and David Silberman who’s daughter Sara works for the Sheriff.

The issue is simple Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and others want the public to believe them when they tell lies. I want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in San Mateo County. We all want to believe the highest ranking Law Enforcement Officials in SMC.

They told us there was a shootout, Sandra fired first, the scared for his life deputy returned fire and she died. No mention she was unarmed, she had her hands up above her head with her back to Deputy Dominguez who all by himself fired 11 shots at her. No mention that 3 of the 14 shell casings were moved (Evidence Tampering) That’s a bad thing.

They told us it’s unfortunate but the scared for his life deputy didn’t turn his AXON BODY CAMERA on at the time of the killing.

The AXON LOG RECORDS of the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 in Half Moon Bay belong to the Public. The Public paid for them.

Body Worn Cameras are for the Protection of both Law Enforcement Officers as well as the Public. They provide truth of what really happened that night in the parking lot behind the Pasta Moon.

San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman has a long history of representing Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos interests. Look what he did to former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez, he protected Sgt. Jason Peardon, or for former San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Mike Otte who not only lied, but committed Perjury in Hon. Judge Lisa Novak Court.

David Silberman is standing in the way of the Public verifying what they already suspect. Why?

Mark Melville Sheriff Candidate for 2022 less than 2 years from now has already said several times that he will release to the public the AXON LOG RECORDS that David Silberman is so adamant the Public will never see.

The City of Half Moon Bay should sue San Mateo County for the AXON LOG RECORDS today. They should not hesitate, what the council has done so far with asking the A.G. to Investigate the Sandra Lee Harmon Homicide is Historical, and they have requested from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos the AXON LOG RECORDS, that Mark Melville has said he will gladly provide to them when he becomes Sheriff of San Mateo County.

Citizen David Eblovi has informed the City of Half Moon Bay that he will sue the County for the AXON LOG RECORDS if he has to. Don’t make a Citizen do the work the City should do.

After the Public gets the AXON LOG RECORDS, and if it turns out the story provided by the SMC Government is false, David Silberman should be fired.

Second in Custody Death in November, Sheriff Bolanos is Silent

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

The first in custody death of Julio Boch- Curup, 21 R.I.P. happened on November 11, 2020.

The second in custody death happened November 24, 2020. Name not released yet.

That’s 2 In Custody Deaths of San Mateo County Sheriff in 2 weeks.

The obvious question is why are people in San Mateo County Jail during a Pandemic. Are they there because they couldn’t afford bail? Are they the most dangerous to the public?

Is two Inmate deaths in 2 weeks normal for this time of the year?

What do the 5 Supervisors think about this?

Which Law Enforcement Agency is investigating these two In-Custody Deaths?

With what the Residents now know about Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P., Errol Chang R.I.P., Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. and Sandra L. Harmon R.I.P. all Homicides by Law Enforcement of course Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos would request the Attorney General of the State of California to investigate these two deaths. Right?

An open letter to San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Every Resident of San Mateo County should be asking the same Question.

This Open Letter was published today in the Half Moon Bay Review.

Nov 25, 2020 

Dear San Mateo County Sheriff Bolanos,

As you are well aware, your deputies wear a Body Worn Camera system whenever they are on patrol. The taxpayers of San Mateo County bought these camera systems for your deputies so that in the case of contentious incidents, like one here in Half Moon Bay on May 5, we would be able to review for ourselves what actually happened; this as opposed to simply being given a narrative from your office with no way to validate its authenticity.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any video for the May 5 shooting of Sandra Harmon from the deputy who initiated the encounter and who fired the bulk (11 out of 14) of shots at Harmon, including the fatal shot to her back. Your office says this is because he turned off his camera before approaching the RV behind Pasta Moon (against procedure) and, oops, we’re sorry about that. You haven’t even bothered to give us a reason his mobile camera and audio was “off” as well.

I’d like to believe you. I’d like to believe the deputy’s version of events. But as someone famous once said: Trust, but verify. As it turns out we actually can verify at least one part of your story — whether the BWC was in fact turned off by the deputy prior to the encounter. The company that makes the cameras and hosts the video files also keeps a log file for every camera, basically forever, allowing a review of the status of any given camera at any given time.

Thus we, the public and your employers, can know if the statement that the cameras were off is in fact true or false, and your office has control of the file that will enlighten us.

Yet you refuse to do so. Not less than four Public Records Act requests, including one from the city of Half Moon Bay itself, have been rebuffed by your attorneys. Most curiously, if the video confirms your version of events, then it would seem to be in your interest to release it to the public at the earliest possible opportunity. Yet you have not done this.

Which makes most people wonder what you are hiding?

I’m not writing to ask you for the log file again. You’ve already refused quite stridently in previous requests. Instead, I’m writing this letter to ask you firmly but respectfully to provide the entire community, here in the Opinion page of the Review, an answer as to why you won’t release the log files.

Please don’t say they are confidential. They are not. On footage from other BWC in use that day you released the actual video. If the video the cameras record isn’t confidential, then how can you possibly argue that a simple file with numbers and times that indicate the status of the cameras at any time is confidential?

Please don’t say you don’t want to set a bad precedent. That would be an insult to the communities you serve.

Please just tell us the truth and tell us why you won’t release the log file to the public.

Thank you in advance for your prompt response to this message.

David Eblovi lives in Half Moon Bay.

PERT should Audit Okobi and Harmon Homicides by Sheriff Employees.

By Michael G. Stogner

The reason I suggest this is Chinedu V. Okobi Homicide there was NO 911 call. The Sandra L. Harmon Homicide there was a 911 call by a non relative and she wasn’t even sure she should have called 911. Also there was plenty of time to bring the PERT TEAM into the Harmon call, 23 minutes before she was contacted and killed.

I observed the NAMI meeting this week and heard a pretty profound statement about what people who are calling 911 should state to the Dispatcher. If you call 911 for a mental health issue You are supposed to know somehow to state You would like a CIT Trained Officer to respond. Nobody knows that in the first place and in the second place the Dispatchers are the front line and They should know how to determine if that is necessary.

This should have been the policy since Yanira Serrano Garcia Homicide when her brother called 911 to simply request an ambulance to the family’s home to assist his sister take her new medication. He told the dispatcher this is a Non Emergency, She was killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of existing his patrol car.

Another element that should be audited is the Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office, Current example is the City of Half Moon Bay on September 15, 2020 voted unanimously to ask the Attorney General for an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Investigation of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

If the PERT program is valuable have it be County Wide include all Police Departments.

Dispatchers should make the call on PERT TEAM being notified.

San Mateo County needs to review and possibly change the agreement between law enforcement and first responders, Currently Law Enforcement has to secure the scene before AMR can arrive. They are stuck just down the street at a staging area waiting for the Scene Secured.

I would also suggest the Errol Chang Homicide in Pacifica as a case to be audited 911 call definitely a mental health call, home surrounded by Swat TEAM. Looks like impatience of commander who ordered his men to enter the home. Total time on scene a few hours, Compare that to Redwood City Police 17.5 hour standoff with a Domestic Violence man. He refused to follow/comply with legal orders, Result nobody killed or hurt. The difference the man was a retired Redwood City Police Officer.

San Mateo County’s John Ullom. Thank You

By Michael G. Stogner

I’m sure most of the 760,000 San Mateo County Residents don’t know who John Ullom is or haven’t heard anything about him. If you have read anything about him by Mark Simon, Jon Mays Editor, or Jerry Lee Owner of the San Mateo Daily Journal. You might ask What did John Ullom do to them to cause such a dislike?

John Ullom is Good Human Being an American, He is the guy you want as your neighbor. San Mateo County Supervisors should give him the Citizen of the Decade Award if there is one. They won’t of course.

Sandra Lee Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020 at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California. She was shot at 14 times, her body was struck 8 times, 3 of the 8 shots were fatal, all 3 fatal shots were in her back. Ms. Harmon was shot at while her hands were above her head and her back was towards Deputy Dominguez. The unloaded shotgun was on the ground in plain view at that moment.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe attended the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020. He stated several times that 11 shots were fired and 11 spent shell casings were recovered.

That’s Simply Impossible. 14 Spent Shell Casings were Recovered.

This is where my favorite saying applies: Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.

Here is just one small example of what John Ullom has done as a CITIZEN.

Sandra Harmon Was Fatally Shot In Her Back While Her Hands Were Above Her Head And The good Old Boys Cover Up

Our District Attorney, Mr. Wagstaffe has offered a “guess” as to how Sandra Harmon received three fatal shots in her back.: —  https://youtu.be/Vmij2TSFfR4

Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” is that Sandra was shot during the third volley of shots. Deputy Dominguez testified he thought he shot her during the second volley. Wagstaff ignores the Deputy’s testimony and the video obtained from another Deputy’s body cam. 

In this short clip, you will see Sandra Harmon’s hands above her head and her back to the Deputy who is firing at her. You will see her gun hit the ground. The Deputy who shot her testified that was one of the reasons he thought he had shot Sandra Harmon during the second volley. You will also see at least one shot was fired after Sandra Harmon dropped her shotgun: — https://youtu.be/TT6zIH4PAYg

Here is the video that shows when Mr. Wagstaff “guesses” Sandra Harmon was fatally shot in the back by SMCSO Deputies. Warning, very disturbing: — https://youtu.be/lsk2oORWVH0

Question for SMC Coroner, Mr. Foucrault, do the entry wounds in Sandra Harmon’s back indicate anything about the trajectory of the bullets that hit her? Does the evidence show a near perpendicular trajectory as would be expected if Deputy Dominguez’s testimony is correct?  Or was the angle of entry shallow as would be the case if Mr. Wagstaffe’s “guess” was correct? Do the wounds have abrasion collars that indicate the angle of entry? — https://what-when-how.com/forensic-sciences/evaluation-of-gunshot-wounds/

The body cam video from the Deputy who shot at Sandra Harmon while her hands were in the air and her back to him, is missing. The logs from his body cam are being withheld. No effort to understand how Sandra came to be shot in her back has been undertaken. This is WRONG. Sandra Harmon’s life mattered. And so do the lives of her family who deserve to know the truth.

At everybody on the BCC list. Nobody in charge, other than the City Council of Half Moon Bay, gives a damn about how Sandra Harmon came to be fatally shot in her back while her hands were above her head.  The press is not going to investigate. The ACLU isn’t interested. BLM folks aren’t going to protest. The only hope of the truth being told…..is us.

John Ullom

Fatal shots in the back provoked the LA Coroner to ask for an independent analysis in the interests of transparency. 

https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/11/us/andres-guardado-los-angeles-inquest/index.html

We do things differently here in San Mateo County.

If you see John Ullom tell him Thank You.

Robert Foucrault Is No Jonathan Lucas.

By Michael G. Stogner

Los Angeles County Chief Medical Examiner-Coroner Jonathan Lucas has announced he is Conducting an Independent Inquest into shooting death by a Sheriff Deputy of 18 year old Andres Guardado. He was shot in the Back 5 times.

Sandra Lee Harmon was shot and killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2020. She was shot 3 times in the back all 3 shots were fatal. She was shot a total of 8 times out of the 14 shots fired by the two deputies. Deputy Dominguez fired 11 shots and Deputy Baba fired 3 shots. If you add 11 plus 3 you will get a total of 14 shots fired.

During the Special Meeting Half Moon Bay City Council held on September 15, 2020 District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said 11 shots were fired. That is a BIG Difference. What would make him say that obvious False statement. At the 50:47 Mark “We did find 11 Casings” “We found 11 shots and 11 casings and that is exactly, I think that confirms where we were.””That is the answer to that.”

That statement all by itself should be reason enough for the Attorney General of the State of California to open an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide.

Back to the title of this article. I have personally received an official copy of the Coroner’s Report of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide. Missing from it was the Diagram of the bullet strikes to the body. Normally I wouldn’t care about this document missing especially since the Report states 3 Fatal Shots to the back. It wasn’t until District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe made a couple of Bizarre statements about Ms. Harmon being shot in the back especially since the Video that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos provided the public shows her being fired at while she is Unarmed with her hands above her head and her back to Deputy Dominguez which is an illegal act. He ignores that fact, and says, “I do not believe that to be the case.”

Why do we allow the District Attorney to say “He Believes” something, instead of What does the Evidence Prove?

HMBCC Special Meeting 9/15/2020

Update December 1, 2020 The Deputies refuse to Testify

Sheriff’s officials won’t testify in inquest
Deputies, detectives take the 5th in the inquiry into Andres Guardado’s death.
THE KILLING of Andres Guardado inflamed tensions. Above, deputies at a protest in August at the home of the deputy who shot and killed Guardado. (Dania Maxwell Los Angeles Times)
By Alene Tchekmedyian
Four Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials are refusing to testify in the coroner’s inquest into the deputy shooting death of Andres Guardado, invoking their 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination even though none of them have been accused of a crime.
Deputies Miguel Vega, who opened fire, and his partner Chris Hernandez, as well as two homicide detectives investigating the case, have indicated they will not answer questions about what led up to the shooting of the 18-year-old Guardado, who was shot five times in the back in an incident that generated weeks of large protests.
A Sheriff’s Department spokesman said each person made the decision on the advice of his legal counsel, not at the direction of Sheriff Alex Villanueva. Legal experts said the move shows a refusal by the Sheriff’s Department to cooperate in a proceeding that Villanueva dismissed in a radio interview last month as a circus stunt.
“I’m sure what they’re thinking is, ‘We don’t know where this is headed. We don’t know who this is going to target. We don’t know if they’re going to claim there’s some kind of cover-up. We don’t know enough not to assert our 5th Amendment right,’ ” said Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson, who was not surprised by the move. “I think you can take it for what it is: No one is volunteering from that sheriff’s office to cooperate in that inquiry.”
She added: “It was clearly coordinated. It was clearly designed to protect them, and to make it more difficult to make findings that could be used against them or others.”
Mike Gennaco, a policing expert who used to oversee the Sheriff’s Department, said he was surprised that the two homicide investigators would not testify.
“I find that remarkable and disappointing,” Gennaco said. “They were fact-finders, and there’s no allegation that there was some sort of conspiracy to cover up the facts.”
The coroner’s inquest, the first of its kind in nearly 30 years, was being conducted Monday so a hearing officer, retired Judge Candace Cooper, could determine the cause and manner of death. The coroner’s office has already determined that Guardado died by homicide on June 18 when he was shot five times in the back. The official autopsy report, released in July, determined that all five gunshot wounds were fatal.
Still, the coroner’s office said it ordered up the inquest for an independent review of the findings in the highly scrutinized case “in the interest of public transparency.” The hearing came amid heightened tensions between Villanueva and county officials who accuse him of stonewalling oversight and rebuffing efforts to hold him accountable.
Four witnesses did testify in the morning: the medical examiner who performed the autopsy, a coroner’s investigator who responded to the scene and wrote a summary of the incident, and two firefighters who tried to save Guardado’s life. They answered questions from county attorneys, offering a glimpse into the aftermath of the shooting that the public normally wouldn’t get until a civil or criminal trial.
Kevin Young, a deputy medical examiner, testified that the location of the bullet wounds indicated Guardado had his back to the gun when he was shot, and that he could have been on his knees or lying prone on the ground.
Young said Guardado would have been able to move his hands and arms after he was struck by the first gunshot.
A journalist with L.A. Taco who interviewed a witness whom county officials couldn’t locate and the forensic pathologist who conducted a private autopsy for Guardado’s family testified in the afternoon. In video interviews, the witness told the journalist that Guardado was on his knees with his hands behind his head when he was shot.
The coroner’s office subpoenaed investigative documents from the Sheriff’s Department, which provided them to the hearing officer under seal. Before making her findings, Cooper will also review the department’s earlier news briefings on the shooting investigation.
Cooper said she wouldn’t make a finding Monday and adjourned the hearing, leaving open the possibility of calling more witnesses. It’s unclear when the proceedings will resume, or if there will be an effort to compel the four sheriff’s officials to testify.
Not much of what was presented publicly Monday was new.
Lt. John Satterfield, a Sheriff’s Department spokesman, said the “overwhelming majority” of information presented Monday came from a briefing the Sheriff’s Department held months ago. “If +90% of what was learned today…was (publicly) actually released by the sheriff months ago, how is he stonewalling accountability?” he said in a text.
The inquest was recommended by the Board of Supervisors earlier this year amid nationwide protests over police brutality, with Guardado’s shooting reigniting calls for accountability and transparency within the department.

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 G. Bolanos couldn’t say Chinedu V. Okobi’s name.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

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

October 19, 2020 there was a Zoom Meeting that was hosted by two Councilmembers of the Town of Portola Valley.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was just one of the panelists.

Most of the panelists mentioned George Floyd’s name who I think any reasonable person who watched the video of him being murdered by a Police Officer would want that to stop. But most did not mention San Mateo County’s Chinedu V. Okobi who was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018 on El Camino Real, Millbrae/San Bruno.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos mentioned George Floyd Tragedy, not Homicide by police. He then mentioned “A Tragic Incident in Millbrae. Tasers ” No mention of Chinedu V. Okobi the 36 year old Father of a daughter, A Moorehouse Graduate, minding his own business simply walking while black on the sidewalk at 1PM in the afternoon. No 911 call, No Crime committed, No Guns, No Drugs etc. He was Tased 7 times, struct with extended baton, dogpiled by Six Sheriff Employees and finally sprayed in the face with O.C. Spray by the CSO Employee who was left out of the Sheriff’s and District Attorneys Press Release.

No mention of CSO Joesph Gonzales
Multiple False Statements
by Sheriff Carlos Bolanos

Sheriff Bolanos went on to say “I don’t believe that individual was killed by Taser.” That individuals name he is referring to is Chinedu V. Okobi, he can’t say it. He doesn’t mention the O.C. Spray to the face at close range after being tased 7 times, and dogpiled by Six.

Sheriff Bolanos went on to say that “AED’s are now in all Sheriff Patrol Vehicles.” I say so what, if you don’t use the AED what difference does it make how many you have. Sheriff Bolanos knows that his Six Employees didn’t provide any life saving measures for the next 8 minutes to Chinedu V. Okobi after he was handcuffed and sat up with his head slumped forward assuring his death. An AED was ONSCENE and not used.

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe provided a highly edited and captioned video 5 months after the Homicide, which provides NO Evidence of Life Saving Measures being provided to Chinedu Okobi. When the EMT finally got to Okobi he was flatlined, they provided Chest compressions for another 8 minutes while he was handcuffed behind his back, they only took off handcuffs to put his dead body on the gurney. Sheriff Bolanos knows all of this.

Here is the Video you will notice no mention of the SIXTH Sheriff Employee. Remember “Just because somebody says something is true doesn’t mean that it is.”

Portola Valley Zoom Meeting tonight.

By Michael G. Stogner

What has changed since Yanira Serrano Garcia was Killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him getting out of his patrol vehicle. After he shot and killed her he was found with the knife in his hand. That is Tampering with Evidence. That was a non emergency medical call.

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

What has changed since Six not Five San Mateo County Sheriff Employees killed Chinedu V. Okobi, No 911 call, No crime had been committed by Okobi. What happened or didn’t happen during the nine minutes after Chinedu Okobi was handcuffed and sat up on El Camino Real, Millbrae, California was a crime. The video provided by SMCDA Office on March 1, 2019 had Captions “Check his pulse” etc the reality is his pulse was Never checked by the Six not Five Sheriff Employees.

What has changed since Sandra L. Harmon was Killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies May 5, 2020 on Main Street Half Moon Bay. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe told the public there was a Shootout and Sandra Harmon fired First. During the HMBCC Special Meeting held September 15, 2020 at the 27:30 Mark the Eblovi Investigation Presentation about 9 minutes Identified 3 Spent Shell Casing and 2 Bullet holes. The three Shell casings were moved. The moving and relocating 3 shell casings and 2 Bullet holes were ignored by Wagstaffe, That is Tampering with Evidence, It also changes the Entire story that Sheriff Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe promoted.

The Half Moon Bay City Council voted 5-0 to have The Attorney General of California to conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation in the Homicide of Sandra L. Harmon, The Sheriff’s Office, and the District Attorney’s Office Investigation. That is what changed.

If Redwood City Council and Staff were serious about Police Reform.

By Michael G. Stogner

They would have already sent their individual e-mails to Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair supporting the September 15, 2020 Unanimous vote by the City of Half Moon Bay Council to refer the May 5, 2020 Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by Sheriff Deputies, requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorneys Investigation.

The Public is also welcome to e-mail Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020, The Eblovi Investigation Presentation at the 27:30 mark in video clearly identifies 3 Spent Shell Casings and 2 Bullet Holes that were omitted from SMC Sheriff, District Attorney Official Reports. The 3 Spent Shell Casings were then moved (Tampering with Evidence) to a location that supported the story provided to the Public by the Sheriff, District Attorney, and supported by County Counsel. There was a Shootout Ms. Harmon fired first both Deputies were fearful for their lives they knew she was going to kill them etc.

HMBCC Special Meeting September 15, 2020

Redwood City Leaders would have already made sure the their Police Department did NOT maintain two separate Arrests Logs which they have been aware of for many years.

RWC Police Logs 2 sets

They would also make sure their Police Department does NOT Violate San Mateo County’s Domestic Violence Protocol. Or their own for that matter.

SMCSO Lt. Kristina Bell 911 D.V. Call

James MaGee 17.5 hour D.V. Swat standoff

San Mateo County Residents should compare the James MaGee case with the Pacifica killing of Errol Chang by the Swat Team who got tired of waiting after a couple of hours. Errol was going nowhere he was located in a tiny home, he was a threat to nobody. Errol Chang R.I.P. was not a former Redwood City Police Officer, that is one big difference.

One thing everyone can do at this moment is contact the Attorney General’s Office and express your support for an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Death of Sandra L. Harmon, the Sheriff’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office for Criminal Conduct. Tampering with Evidence and request the AXON LOG RECORDS of the Entire Event. There were 14 Spent Shell Casings recovered NOT 11 that Steve Wagstaffe repeatedly discussed with the Public during the September 15, 2020 Zoom meeting above.

All San Mateo County Elected Official should have already sent their e-mails. E-mail Supervising Deputy Attorney General Joyce Blair (Joyce.Blair@doj.ca.gov)

If they haven’t the residents should ask them, WHY?
