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.”

Melville, Corpus and Bolanos for San Mateo County Sheriff 2022.

By Michael G. Stogner

Now there are three individuals who have stated their intention to run for Sheriff of San Mateo County in 2022.

Mark Melville ran against Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018 and received 52,996 total votes. He has always said he will be running in 2022.

SMCSO Captain Christina Corpus has now announced her intention.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has already held a fundraiser in Millbrae last month.

Now if San Mateo County Residents can find a candidate to run for District Attorney against Steve Wagstaffe that would be a step in the right direction.

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.

June 19th is a Federal Holiday.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy thinks its OK to wait until NEXT year for SMC to act on this. What do you think?

President Joe Biden signed this into law today.

June 19 is a date that marks a pivotal event in our country’s history. While the Emancipation Proclamation became official on January 1, 1863, many enslaved Africans were in states where slavery continued or where they didn’t know that they were free. On June 19, 1865, Union Major General Gordon Granger informed more than 250,000 enslaved African Americans in Texas that they were free, and the 13th Amendment followed on Dec. 8, 1865.

Think about that for a few minutes, It took 2.5 years for the Official word to get passed on to 250,000 Slaves in Texas. Lets not waste one more second. Lets share the history of this Country.

Black Lives Matter! Act Like It San Mateo County Government.

University of California Vaccine Mandate

By Michael G. Stogner

That’s pretty simple All students, faculty and staff must be vaccinated to attend.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The University of California is reversing course and will require all students, staff and faculty to be vaccinated against the coronavirus this fall.

UC President Michael Drake “does plan to move forward with the vaccine mandate,” Regent Eloy Oritz Oakley told the San Francisco Chronicle on Monday.

The decision is an about-face from a proposed policy announced in April requiring vaccinations only after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration fully approved at least one of the three vaccines now being administered under emergency authorization. It’s not clear when the FDA will give full approval.

Oakley said the regents have not been briefed on the new decision but that more information is expected at their two-day meeting that starts July 21.

UC has more than 280,000 students and 227,000 faculty and staff, and expects to return to mostly in-person instruction at its 10 campuses starting in August.

UC has already said it would exempt students from the vaccination requirement if they have medical or religious reasons.

California State University officials said Monday they were still planning to wait for full FDA approval before mandating COVID vaccinations — but that could change.

“We will continue to evaluate the situation as we get closer to the fall term,” CSU spokesperson Michael Uhlenkamp told the Chronicle.

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?
