SMC District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Nice words about George Floyd’s Murder & Racism.

By Michael G. Stogner

D.A. Stephen M. Wagstaffe

Condemnation Racism And Bigotry

As District Attorney of San Mateo County, I join the other District Attorneys in California in condemning the senseless death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I extend condolences to the family of George Floyd and to the communities across this nation that are in mourning over Mr. Floyd’s death. As a society, we must bring an end to bigotry and racism in our country, and it is the solemn responsibility of all government leaders and every member of the criminal justice system to achieve this goal. The citizens of this country cannot rest until we bring an end to racial inequity and racism in our country. After 43 years as a prosecutor in San Mateo County, it saddens me that shocking events such as Mr. Floyd’s death and the violence that followed continue to occur. We will continue to collaborate with San Mateo County law enforcement agencies to train their officers to insure proper and lawful conduct by officers and to appropriately investigate any conduct that violates the law. Every member of the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office will resolutely continue to seek justice and fairness in our criminal justice system. To this end, I have signed the attached statement of the California District Attorneys Association issued this past weekend condemning racism and bigotry. I hope and pray the principles enunciated in this statement may soon be achieved.

 

Stephen M. Wagstaffe
District Attorney

 

The Prosecutor the Judges are talking about below is Stephen M. Wagstaffe “his ulterior motive was race-based.”

[22] But Jefferson was not the only African-American the prosecutor peremptorily challenged. He also struck the only other African-American potential juror, and, in so doing, pro- vided several pretextual explanations for that strike. In light of this additional strike, the prosecutor’s proffer of two ques- tionable explanations for his strike of Jefferson take on a sig- nificance that they might otherwise lack. See Lewis v. Lewis, 321 F.3d 824, 831 (9th Cir. 2003) (“The proffer of various faulty reasons and only one or two otherwise adequate rea- sons, may undermine the prosecutor’s credibility to such an extent that a court should sustain a Batson challenge.”). At a minimum, these dubious explanations reaffirm our conclusion that the prosecutor’s actual reason for striking M.C. differed from those that he asserted and that his ulterior motive was race-based. See Kesser, 465 F.3d at 369 (“The prosecutor’s willingness to make up nonracial reasons for striking [three minority jurors] makes it even harder to believe that his rea- sons for striking [a fourth juror] were race-neutral.”).

IV. Conclusion

[23] Taken as a whole, the record compels a finding that the prosecutor’s non-race based reasons for peremptorily striking M.C. were pretexts. The fact that the prosecutor peremptorily struck the only other African-American juror in the jury pool and provided at least two implausible reasons for that challenge reinforces this conclusion. We therefore hold that both the California Court of Appeal and the district court clearly erred when they found that Ali failed to establish pur- poseful discrimination. We further hold that, in light of the overwhelming evidence indicating that the prosecutor in Ali’s case acted with discriminatory intent when he struck M.C., the California appellate court’s finding to the contrary was an unreasonable determination of the facts in light of the evi- dence presented in the state court proceedings. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(2). We therefore reverse the judgment of the dis- trict court and remand with directions to issue a conditional writ of habeas corpus requiring Ali’s release from custody, unless the State elects to retry Ali within a reasonable time to be determined by the district court.

REVERSED and REMANDED.

Ali vs. Hickman

Matthew Graves case in another clear example.

Chinedu Okobi Sheriff In-Custody Death was ruled a Homicide by the Coroner on December 31, 2018 on March 1, 2019 Steve Wagstaffe announced he was not charging any of the SIX County Employees.

It is easy for Politicians to say Nice words, pay attention to their actions,

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos should RESIGN.

By Michael G. Stogner

As some of you know I personally requested Carlos G. Bolanos resign from San Mateo County Law Enforcement on May 14, 2007 Certified Mail.

CarlosG.Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has a bad habit of lying to the public. He has been doing that for a long, long time. San Mateo County Supervisors Warren Slocum, Don Horsley, Dave Pine, Dave Canepa and Carole Groom, County Counsel John Beiers, David Silberman, County Manager Mike Callagy are all fully aware of this and are not only fine with this fact but endorse this behavior.

Recently Sheriff Bolanos after 45 days released a video presentation of the Execution of Unarmed Sandra Harmon on May 5, 2020 7:25 PM at 845 Main Street Half Moon Bay, California. Sheriff Bolanos was quick to inform the public that she fired her shotgun at Deputy Dominguez who was taking cover behind his SUV Patrol Vehicle which was parked sideways right in front of her about 20 feet away. He reports to his sergeant that she fired two rounds which just happens to be all the shotgun holds which means it is now empty. Threat is diminished substantially. Adding to that threat downgrading is the fact that she no longer is in possession of the shotgun. At the 8:00 mark of the video provided to the pubic by Sheriff Bolanos you can hear Deputy Dominguez yell Put you hands up and see Unarmed Sandra Harmon with hers hands up and above head you can also hear FIVE shots being fired at her by 8:06 mark. Why?

Sheriff Bolanos’s Video

Sheriff Bolanos is a master at misinformation, he and most of the media focus on Sandra Harmon Jay Walking & Reaching for an Empty Gun instead. If that sounds familiar it should Chinedu Okobi killed by 6 Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018. All violated their Oath refused to provide medical aide for more than 8 minutes and Lied about it.

San Mateo County Residents should ask Sheriff Bolanos What is your policy regarding a Deputy shooting at an Unarmed citizen? So far it is Kill Now Lie Later.

Sheriff Bolanos doesn’t mention it at all. He should RESIGN. Sheriff Bolanos tells us that Deputy Dominguez did not turn on his Body Camera for the conversation and shooting of Sandra Harmon. I might point out Deputy Dominguez has not said that. Deputy Dominguez went by himself to the motorhome with no body camera on is the story Carlos Bolanos is pushing. Why would a reasonable person believe that?

The good news is even if that were true, it really doesn’t matter because the In-Car Camera /Audio System will have recorded his conversation and we will be able to clearly hear the Shotgun Blasts. A reasonable person would expect to see damage to the patrol car with 2 rounds fired at a Deputy taking cover behind it less than 20 feet away.

What did Sergeant James E. Goulart recommend? What was the plan if he encountered the woman with a Shotgun, why was he alone?

That is exactly what happened when Yanira Serrano-Garcia was killed by Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of exiting his patrol vehicle. He was alone and No Plan. That 911 call was a Non Emergency Medial assistance call.

Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees October 3, 2018 there was NO 911 call.  No Plan

No Confidence in SMCDA Chief Inspector John Warren

By. Michael G, Stogner

San Mateo County District Attorney Chief Inspector John Warren

He is in-charge of the Investigation of Sandra Harmon death by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba and Deputy David Dominguez on May 5, 2020 just off of Main Street Half Moon Bay.

He was also the in-charge of the Yanira Serrano-Garcia death by Deputy Investigation June 3, 2014 also Half Moon Bay.

He was also SMCDA Inspector Jamie Draper’s Supervisor and he approved this Conclusion Summary of the Coroner’s Report in the Chinedu Okobi Death by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018.

He doesn’t mention the word Homicide. Jamie Draper says it should be noted that this information is contrary. NO IT ISN’T Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz is 100% correct.
“I have determined the manner of death to be Homicide.”
“HOMICIDE PROTOCOL” 36-year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies

Both Inspectors of San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office thought that Omitting the word Homicide and a deliberately misleading statement was fine.

That is why I have No Confidence in either one of them. I also think it is a criminal act to provide a false report in what should have been a Homicide Investigation.

San Mateo County should release the MAV videos and audio recordings of the death of Sandra Harmon, they should have done it the first day.

San Mateo’s Peaceful Protest, BLM, George Floyd R.I.P. Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P.

By Michael G. Stogner

Did anybody mention Chinedu V. Okobi’s name that night? He was killed on El Camino Real, in Millbrae in the middle of the afternoon, by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on October 3, 2018. San Mateo County Coroner ruled the manner of Death a Homicide on December 31, 2018. Chinedu Okobi had committed No Crime, when Sheriff Deputy Wang became interested in him. Yes Chinedu was a Black man walking on the sidewalk.

Chinedu Okobi and George Floyd were both killed by law enforcement and both deaths ruled a Homicide. The difference is a brave 17 year old girl who videoed the Murder and put it on the internet for the world to see before it could be destroyed or edited.

Police response was at times unnecessarily intimidating,

I knew I wanted to publish this letter as soon as I read it, in my opinion it is addressed to the wrong people, The five Supervisors couldn’t care less what the residents think or feel. It should be addressed to ALL San Mateo County Residents.

Here it is:

Good morning San Mateo City Council Members, San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, Chief Barberini, and Sheriff Bolanos –

On Wednesday evening, June 3, I attended and spoke at the Black Lives Matter Protest in San Mateo. From the moment I walked up to City Hall, witnessed the speeches, and marched from City Hall to the San Mateo Police Department, I was inspired and proud. That is, until SMPD and related police forces showed up unprovoked in masses in riot gear to greet the peaceful protesters. 

Shortly after 7pm, when the protest was scheduled to end, a group of Sheriff vehicles – marked and unmarked – sped down Franklin Parkway towards the hundreds of individuals, families, and children still standing peacefully in the street. As had been specifically planned in coordination with SMPD, the protest was scheduled to end at the San Mateo Police Department with a time of silence and reflection. Instead, when the riot forces began rushing to the scene, people were forced to quickly make way while at the same time fearing what these forces had come to do. I personally witnessed an older gentleman literally jump out of the way of a sheriff car backing up into the driveway. Children were running into the arms of their parents in tears. This as multiple law enforcement officers jumped out of their cars, either dressed in or grabbing full riot gear to don, displaying batons, bright-colored zip tie restraints, rubber bullet guns, and other riot paraphernalia. This was nothing more than an unprovoked, blatant show of force which negated the otherwise positive nature of the demonstration. 

Three of the people standing on Franklin Parkway were me, my husband Rob, and my daughter Kaiya. Prior to this incident, Kaiya had been jumping up and down on the curb, collecting new rocks, and galloping through the street like a horse without a care in the world. This changed in one moment, when she then dove into my arms in hysterics. There have been very few times where I have been so afraid for my life, and never a time when I have been so afraid for the life of my daughter. There is no way to describe what that moment felt like for me, and my 22 month old daughter doesn’t have the words to describe what it was like for her. I’ll never know how much this first real interaction with law enforcement impacted her. 

San Mateo Police Department released a statement indicating there were “additional challenges” and therefore a “supplemental group was deployed.” SMPD further stated, “Fortunately, at no point did these officers, or any other personnel have to employ any use of force and no arrests were made.” That bare statement reflects a generally negative set of expectations for what everyone agreed would be a civil, peaceful demonstration. No mention of the blatant and unnecessary display of force. No recognition of the impact on the peaceful protesters who lined the streets. Could it have been worse? Absolutely. But should we strive to do better? I thought that was the commitment SMPD made in their letter to the community denouncing George Floyd’s death and that was reiterated during the Town Hall earlier this week. Actions speak much louder than words. 

This is not a situation in which you need to wait for other people to determine what happened and why in order to determine right and wrong, and understand the right thing to do. In this letter and in my prior discussions with many of you, I am describing the actions of our local law enforcement, which are not in dispute, and explaining how they were received by attendees including my own family. This is an example of our system functioning as intended, and of your collective complicity. 

No one on our City Council looks like me. To be honest, not many people in our city look like me. I have shared my perspective, as a black woman in our city, as the ONLY current Black Elected Official in our city, and I have been told – subtly or overtly – what every other black person in our country is told – we don’t believe you, and we need to wait for the white men in power to tell us what really happened. 

I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so disappointed. Please know that if you truly stand with Black Lives Matter, actions like these and the insistent failure to acknowledge them directly and seemingly intentionally miss the point. If you believe my life matters, that means you believe me and my experience. You think it is valuable and that my story is ALL you need to denounce these scare tactics, and blatant displays of force.

Councilwoman Lee recently had a rock thrown through her window. She recounted that terrible event from her perspective, she told her story, and action ensued. No one said, we are going to wait until we have all the evidence before we are going to speak out. Why is this experience so different?

I’m asking for two things: 

To the San Mateo City Council and San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, I am asking you to take a stand. To publicly address and denounce these scare tactics and blatant displays of force utilized by law enforcement at the end of the evening. 

To Chief Barberini and Sheriff Bolanos, I am asking for ownership. A lot went well, and you have repeatedly shared that. Own what didn’t go well and make reparations.

Shara Watkins

Remember this was a Successful Peaceful Protest in the middle of a Pandemic. Congratulations to all involved.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos identifies Deputies in Death of Sandra Lee Harmon.

By Michael G. Stogner

Update: Sheriff Video shows Unarmed Sandra Harmon w/Hands above head being shot at. 8:02 mark

San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy John Baba and Deputy David Dominguez are finally identified by the Sheriff Office. Why the delay?

They were dispatched because of a call reporting “Woman with a gun.” walking on Main Street, Half Moon Bay. What was the PLAN? What time was the PERT TEAM dispatched? What time did they arrive? Mental Health Issues, What did the Sergeant on duty recommend as the game plan on how to get this gun away from this woman? Which Deputy arrived first and according to Sheriff Bolanos he was SHOT at. How did the old Shotgun get on the ground? Did Sandra Lee Harmon comply with the orders being shouted at her? Many people with Mental Health Issues DO NOT COMPLY with Law Enforcement Orders. The Sheriff Office Knows that, Everybody Knows that. What was the Plan?

Just the week before Michigan State Capitol had a lot of people walking around with Long Guns. Nobody killed them.

Sheriff Summary: On May 5, 2020, at approximately 7:25 pm, deputies were dispatched to the area of Main Street and Monte Vista Lane in Half Moon Bay on the report of a woman with a gun. The woman, later identified as Sandra Harmon, was described by the caller as white, slender with a striped shirt and skirt, carrying a rifle and alcohol.

Responding deputies located Harmon to the rear of 845 Main Street. Harmon fired at the first deputy on the scene. The second deputy arrived as shots were being fired. Both deputies ordered Harmon to get onto the ground, but she failed to comply. When she reached for the firearm, which was on the ground at that point, the deputies fired at Harmon, striking her.

Now Release the Unedited Video and Audio recordings from the Mobile Audio Video MAV and the Remote Microphones that are manufactured by the Axon Enterprise Inc.

That will show that the Statement by San Mateo County Sheriff Office is the truth. Harmon fired at the first deputy on the scene. Of course if that is true then that outcome is to be expected. Has SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos ever issued a False News Release, You bet he has Several as a matter of fact. October 3, 2018 Chinedu Okobi Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees. Sheriff Bolanos Identified five of the six Sheriff Employees that day October 3, 2018. What was different here?

Some Media in San Mateo County wrote “Shootout” and “Shotgun Wielding” The Videos will show what actually happened. Update:

The video shows NO SHOOTOUT.

SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, “Best Less Lethal Tools.” Really?

By Michael G. Stogner

Tell that to the Family and loved ones of Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. Killed less than 8 hours later.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos is reading a prepared speech for the Supervisors to get them to approve a no bid contract with Axon Enterprises Inc. The same company that supplied the equipment on October 3, 2018 the day Chinedu Okobi was killed by SIX Sheriff Employees. San Mateo County Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz ruled his death was a Homicide.

The short list of who knows it was a Homicide is Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Warren Slocum, Dave Pine and David Canepa, County Manager Mike Callagy, County Counsel John Beiers, Deputy Counsel David Silberman, and most all of the 800 Sheriff Deputies, and the District Attorney’s Office entire management staff with John Warren, Jamie Draper at the top.

Supervisor Warren Slocum

You will see Supervisor President Warren Slocum describe Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide as “Following the Unfortunate Incident a couple of years ago” at the 4:08:10 mark. He is responding to my public comment.

I think that most reasonable residents of San Mateo County would agree that a Homicide by Six Sheriff Employees is more than Unfortunate. Unfortunate is if someone took your parking spot.

Agenda Item #9 starts at 3:38:00 Waiving competitive bid $922,110.83 Axon Enterprise Inc. Sheriff Bolanos describes PERT TEAM, Less Lethal Measures etc.

SMC Board of Supervisor Meeting May 5, 2020

Sandra Lee Harmon 56, a Mother and Wife was killed by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies less than 8 hours later at 845 Main Street, Half Moon Bay California.

San Mateo County Release the Videos, Audios Today. Identity the Deputies involved. It’s been 7 days since she was killed.

At 3:52:22 My public comment was read by Suki into the public record.

  • Michael Stogner <michaelgstogner@yahoo.com>May 5 at 8:11 AM
  • To:Sukhmani S. Purewal
  • Cc: Jeff Regan, Dave Pine, Don Horsley, Dave Canepa, Carole Groom and 1 more…Tue,
  • Dear Supervisors,
    I recommend you Not approve this contract until AXON and Sheriff Bolanos explain how this happened.
    Until AXON can explain why the MAV videos from Sheriff Patrol cars failed to download on October 3, 2018 according to Statement by #80205 Jamie Draper 10/23/2018

    Sheriff Office IT Technician Johnson Hang responded to the scene and was able to allow me to view the videos on the small in car display from each of the vehicles still at the scene and was able to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Lorenzatti and Deputy Watt without issue. Hang was unable to retrieve the videos from the vehicles driven by Deputy Wang and Sergeant Weidner at the scene.”
    Axon can also explain why all Interviews recorded (using an AXON product) conducted by Menlo Park Police Officer Joshua Russell failed to download that same day October 3, 2018 at the same crime scene.

    Thank You
    Michael G. Stogner

    No need to read below just for reference.
    Joshua Russell MPPD 10/16/2018My interviews conducted during this investigation were recorded using my VieVu digital video recorder. When I returned to the police station at the end of my shift I attempted to download the recorder but encountered problems with the recorder’s connection to my desktop computer. When I returned to work on 10-16-2018 I again attempted to download the recorder, and only five video recordings from 10-03- 2018 were downloaded, all of which were from contacts made prior to my involvement in this investigation. I have contacted the information technology specialists employed by the City of Menlo Park for assistance in locating the missing videos. I will update this case with a supplemental report if or when the videos are recovered. As of 10-31-2018 the videos I recorded during the course of this investigation have not been recovered. The technology department of the City of Menlo Park has attempted to locate the videos and have been in contact with the body-camera company, Vie-Vu, as part of their efforts to see if the videos could have been lost either on the device or during the download process. Vie-Vu has stated that because recordings from earlier in the day downloaded correctly, there appears not to be a problem with the camera. All videos downloaded by all Menlo Park Vie-Vu cameras for the date of 10-03-2018 have been checked, and none of the downloads are of my interviews in this case.

San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, Release the Video and Audio.

By Michael G. Stogner

May 5, 2020 Sandra Lee Harmon a Mother and a Wife who suffered from Mental Health Issues was shot and Killed by Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay, California. That we know, and that’s about all we know.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

There is NO reason for the residents of SMC to trust anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos an Elected Official says after the October 3, 2018 Homicide of Chinedu Okobi by six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Sheriff Bolanos issued 2 News Releases that day, both contained False Statements. He issued a 3rd News Release March 1, 2019 which contained even more False Statements.

All Five San Mateo County Supervisors are OK with all of the False Statements by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos mentioned above.

If the Videos and Audio from AXON actually contained the evidence that confirms what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says happened, you can bet he would have made it public on May 5th and there would be no reason to have to trust him, it would answer all the questions. A simple video of her firing her Shotgun at Deputies first and Life Saving efforts provided after she was shot multiple times while reaching for her shotgun that somehow was on the ground.

That would go a long way for Public Trust and Confidence in Law Enforcement. A Citizen Oversight Committee with Subpoena power would be an improvement also a County Wide Policy to make Videos and Audios from remote Mic. public within 24 hours of all Deaths by Law Enforcement.

What time was the SMC PERT TEAM dispatched?

What time did the SMC PERT TEAM arrive on scene?

Release the videos and audio Now.

This what happens when The Sheriff’s Office, The District Attorney’s Office have 5 months to edit and add suggestive captions. Notice they only mention 5 Sheriff Employees instead of the 6.

May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay about 7:40 PM in the parking lot of the Pasta Moon Restaurant San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies Killed Sandra Lee Harmon a 56 year old mother who was suffering with mental health issues according to her daughter.

San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has issued only a simple tweet so far,

No Press Release Period.

Sherif Office News Room

Public Trust is earned, Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and Detective Rosemerry Blankswade can not be trusted to tell the truth. Chinedu Okobi Homicide by Law Enforcement October 3, 2018 is a perfect example.

The names of the Deputies should have been made public that night, the Videos and Audios should be released to eliminate any false narrative. Some print media has already started, Shootout, Shotgun Wielding etc.

San Mateo County Residents know this is Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos Mental Health Policy.

Update: The Sheriff Office has just produced a Press Release after my article. As you can see it’s dated 5/7/2020
