San Mateo County Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos had the following to say about the "private" meeting Supervisor Rich Gordon is having at the Moss Beach Sheriffs substation Monday, February 22, 2010 at 10:30am:

‘When members of the public and/or the media are there typically people won’t be as candid as we need them to be to ensure the debrief is as clear as possible."

"If there is someone there from the media then the purpose is compromised because people won’t be as candid as they would be…"

Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos must have felt compromised when he and Sheriff Greg Munks were busted for loitering outside a Las Vegas brothel in 2007. Sheriff Greg Munks has experienced difficulty being candid with the media in the past. After the "Operation Dollhouse" bust Munks said in a statement to the press, “I believed I was going to a legitimate business.”

Supervisor Rich Gordon should reverse his decision to prohibit the media and the public from the Feb. 22 Mavericks Surf Contest meeting.

I have no confidence in Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos as a Law Enforcement Officer for San Mateo County. He knows this because I sent him a certified letter requesting his resignation in March of 2007. I let Carlos know that I could no longer support him as being one of my top law enforcement official from that day forward.

I would like to clarify a point here about Operation Dollhouse.

“Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos must have felt compromised when he and Sheriff Greg Munks were busted for loitering outside a Las Vegas brothel in 2007.”

They were not loitering. They were both identified as customers of Underaged Human Trafficked Sex Slaves. There is a big difference between a brothel of adult women who want to be there, vs. slaves.

Bolanos while Chief of Police for Redwood City was the only one out of 23 law enforcement agencies who had confidence in a $20,000,000 communication system endorsed by Greg Munks.

This meeting should be public or canceled.
