San Mateo County Counsel: Contact Attorney General about disciplined prosecutor
Original post made by Holly L on Apr 3, 2013
Following the news about the Bar's discipline, at the suggestion of a San Mateo Supervisor, several crime victims' families and other citizens have written to the Supervisors about Mckowan's violation of Marsy's Law on THREE cases.
The citizens have been notified by San Mateo County Counsel that they need to direct their "allegations" about Mckowan to the California Attorney General.
But the crime victims' families have already gone to the AG, back in August, 2011, after San Mateo District Attorney ignored all complaints about the violations about Mckowan.
In 2011, the AG told the citizens to go to the California Bar.
County Counsel stated in a letter to one citizen that a "substantive response to your allegations would involve an inquiry as to the official duties of a district attorney. If your allegations proved accurate, a proper response could include the provision of directions to the District Attorney's office as to how to discharge its official duties."
Now that there have been news reports about the Bar's discipline, will Kamala Harris take up this case?

Other San Mateo citizens who have experienced misconduct or unethical behavior by prosecutor Mckowan in their cases are encouraged to write to Attorney General Kamala Harris.

Kamala Harris do anything about this? Next life. She's too busy not doing her job. Attorneys protect attorneys. It's a perfect system. The rest of us can go suck an egg.
Until the sheeple of San Mateo County wake up and elect someone else besides the current crop of corrupt supervisors and throw our corrupt DA out of office, nothing will change.
Wake up San Mateo County. Some day you could be getting screwed over by our DA.

No other case involving a pedophile doctor in this country has taken SIX years, as the Ayres case has, and counting.
In the last few weeks, a number of California prison inmates have come forward to say that Ayres assaulted them when they were juveniles. One of these juvenile cases was VERY high profile. The prosecutor on it is now a judge who has made decisions very recently in the Ayres case.
Watch for that case to be overturned AND a whole slew of lawsuits against San Mateo County to be filed.
This is exactly what DA Steve Wagstaffe fears- lawsuits against his precious county and that some of the murder cases his office prosecuted will be overturned.
The lawsuits are coming, and there is no doubt that some of these convictions will be thrown out.
Pass the popcorn.
