Yesterday at the Beyond Newtown Summit event which was held at CSM and open to the public, Mark DePaula approached the Sheriff identified himself as the candidate for Supervisor District 2 and asked him this question, 'Did the FBI exonerate you in Operation Dollhouse 2007" Sheriff Munks responded "This is no place to talk about that." which is an ok response but than he takes it a step further and says to a deputy "I don't think this guy belongs here."
Our Sheriff has had 7 years to practice answers to that question or similar questions that the public has been asking. This question should not have startled the Sheriff as it appears to have done. His statement to his Deputy is shocking and an abuse of power. Put yourself in Mark DePaula's position, he was not carrying a weapon as both the Sheriff and Deputy were, he was signed in and wearing name tag at a public event.
Why would he not belong there? Because that statement was made in front of Mr. DePaula he was startled and offered to discuss this with the deputy elsewhere so they both left that area for awhile.
This is the most powerful Law Enforcement Official in San Mateo County with no oversight.
