White Civil Rights Attorney Persecuted for Saving Black Lives

In Leon’s report two months later to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Justice Department, Leon warned that he could be similarly targeted as a white civil rights attorney. Fatefully that happened at a traffic stop in 2018 due to a racist judge, Gerald Popeo.

The above report was also delivered to Congressman Jim Clyburn following the Walter Scott murder. He was called to task by Koziol at a national news conference during Walter Scott’s funeral in 2015.

Despite promises of meetings and reform, nothing came in response even after our Parent March on Washington in 2019 when we visited the same offices with an updated report citing more carnage.

The above news articles are only a few that describe the litigation history of civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, before New York’s Appellate Division suspended his law license in 2010 after 23 unblemished years of practice. The Stephen Patterson case was his last one.

The victim there was subjected to years of persecution after Leon obtained a $333,000 jury verdict argued before Justice Sonia Sotomayor in Manhattan, see Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir 2004). The city was found guilty of wrongful discharge of Stephen Patterson, the first African-American Public Works Commissioner of an upstate New York city. Leon obtained another $90,000 for Stephen’s father, a church pastor, who suffered retaliation by the same city.

Facing his own persecution for doing so, Leon was compelled to return in a later case as Patterson’s attorney without charge when learning that his former client had attempted suicide in the city lock-up. The presiding judge, Gerald Popeo, was eventually censured by a judicial conduct commission after being charged with using “N” slurs, threatening assault from the bench, and jailing litigants in violation of their due process rights for such behavior as a “smirk.”

Koziol complained that Judge Popeo should have been removed altogether much like his custody judge was for admitted pedophilia years earlier (Syracuse family judge Bryan Hedges). Judge Popeo avenged that public censure by having himself assigned as a city judge to Leon’s family court case leading to a near fatal event.

That event occurred on August 30, 2018 when a traffic cop purporting to enforce a support warrant issued by Judge Popeo threatened to shoot Leon “on sight.” The scene resembled the Walter Scott case. A dangerous suspect warning had been added secretly to that warrant and eventually leaked to the media. But as fate would have it, Leon was not present in his vehicle when that threat was made to its driver.

This is a horrific John Grisham ordeal, but it is no novel. It is a true story that continues to be covered up. Black Lives Matter, NAACP and all victims of racial abuse need to support civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, in his time of need during license reinstatement proceedings now underway in Albany, New York.

This comes after an excessive and unjust license suspension of 10 years on a six month term long completed in 2013. In contrast, Attorney Stanley Cohen was reinstated by New York’s Appellate Division in 2018 after only two years from the time of his prison release for tax evasion (involving some $3 million in unreported fees and income).

Despite a felony conviction, Cohen suffered only a license suspension, not the standard disbarment, despite representing cop killers, a relative of Osama bin Laden and terrorists. Leon was never even charged with a crime and represented law enforcement as well as genuine civil rights victims.

Here is the bottom line of all this. The Leon Koziol ordeal supports recent calls for white advocates to join Black Lives Matter. That movement needs to add judge brutality and a broken court system to the targets of reform. This is the case that will stand as precedent for that in the memory of George Floyd. Help us spread the word on this highly censored ordeal to make it happen.

THEN AND NOW: The below video summary of our 2019 Parent March on Washington was produced by Philadelphia Attorney Lawrence DeMarco. That video proves how peaceful and respectful we were at Lafayette Square Park in front of the White House and throughout our procession under police escort down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol.

However, despite over 600 reports delivered to members of Congress and meetings in such offices as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, not a single reply was offered. Is violence then the answer as rioters have proven today for getting our government’s attention? Today’s politicians are praising our kind of protest over the violent one also pictured below, but without even the respect of acknowledging it.

Corona Chronicles #19: When Family Courts Reopen, Will Violence be the Norm?

IMG_1350

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

In yesterday’s nationwide conference call, the question was posed on the “New Normal” as applied to our nation’s divorce and family courts. What will these courts look like if and when the coronavirus pandemic runs its course?

The answers appeared relatively unanimous: 1) the crisis will NOT humble any lawyers, service providers or judges; 2) the players will be hungrier than ever, inventing new grounds for lucrative conflict; 3) violent criminals will continue to be let out of jails while non-criminal support debtors will replace them; 4) these tribunals will be worse than pre-virus courts, and 5) overwhelmed victims will resort to mass violence.

Like so many whistle blower warnings I have made over the years regarding corrupt government practices, I am once again way ahead of the curve on this subject. Already lawyers interviewed by media are reporting a sharp spike in divorce cases due to home quarantines and emphasizing the need for virtual courts to handle emergency applications. Such courts should reduce waiting and travel time fees, but see # 1-5 above.

Lawyers find a way to exploit a crisis as much as they do the good times. Foreclosures, bankruptcies and business reorganizations are only some of the practice areas that will yield a new wave of profits. Clients subject to over billing practices will have no remedy since the foxes will still be watching the chicken coop.

Proof of the latter can be found in a shocking example repeated time and again on this website.  Ethics lawyers engaged in the witch hunt against me announced at a closed hearing that they would continue to target my law license as long as I continued to seek recourse against lawyer and judicial misconduct. Only weeks later, the same ethics lawyers were allowed to resign quietly after being caught falsifying their time sheets.

Unlike the rest of us, no criminal or ethics charges were lodged. These are the standard-bearers of lawyer ethics charged with the duty of preventing client over-billing. Yet they not only stole from taxpayers, they stole from the judges who hired them, New York’s Third Judicial Department in Albany, see Times Union article, July 11, 2013. They have been in private practice ever since.

For this reason it is important for all parents seeking relief in these courts to be prepared for the onslaught which awaits us. This post is a serious forewarning that should be actively shared on the internet. It is also one which can prepare you well in advance. On this site, http://www.leon koziol.com, and the Parenting Rights Institute website, you will find a self-representation and court strategy program which does exactly that.

Because these sites prevent or reduce lawyer fees and federal funding kick-backs to these courts, they have been suppressed and censored. Indeed we had to sue a family court judge in New York Supreme Court to remove a gag order on this one. If you doubt the coming violence, here is a sampling of shocking events which support our predictions. They occurred prior to this economically devastating crisis and were ignored in our report to all members of Congress on May 2, 2019:

On September 28, 2009, police Investigator Joseph Longo was ordered to pay $1,800 in monthly child support. He answered the same day with a murder- suicide leaving four children without parents. Even the district attorney could not predict this. A $2 million recovery was based on a zone of danger created by city officials as opposed to family court, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (2011) LaDuca, Rage built Longo to murder-suicide, Observer Dispatch, 12/30/09. 

On June 15, 2011, a father and war veteran, Thomas Ball, burned himself alive on the steps of a family court to protest years of abuse and separation from his children. It stemmed from a single incident of slapping his daughter, and he left behind a manifesto on how to firebomb courts. Even after such a horrific death, the ex-wife stubbornly defended herself by complaining that her children’s dad failed to comply with court counselling. This is how demented the process has become, see Mark Arsenault, Dad leaves clues to his desperation, Boston Globe, July 10, 2011. 

On April 4, 2015, Walter Scott, an unarmed father was shot dead five times in the back by a traffic cop while fleeing a support warrant. The shocking murder was videoed by a concealed bystander. Contrary to national hype focused on racism, the victim’s funeral pastor blamed it on draconian child support confinements. Many concluded that the state was now killing for money given the revolving door outcomes. In vain, two reporters warned of this trend, see Robles and Dewan, Skip child support. Go to jail. Lose job. Repeat. New York Times, 4/15/15 at pg. 1.       

On July 30, 2018, a physical therapist with a practice in Manhattan fatally shot his ex-wife, their 6-year old son and current wife in his Astoria (Queens) home. It became the final edict in a protracted custody battle fueled by judicial war games. After a failed Go-Fund-Me effort to pay his lawyer fees, in a page titled “Child Kidnapping,” the abused dad, James Shield, explained, “I had the perfect life a few years ago but it has spiraled out of control,” Moore, Musemeci and Sheehy, Custody battle led dad to family murder suicide, New York Post, July 31, 2018. 

Less transparent are the countless cases swarming beneath these four which can easily explode. Their cause is wrongfully blamed on the parents. The public is duped into believing that an adversarial process yields truth and justice in our courts. That may be true in other forms of litigation, but when children are taken hostage by untethered lawyers, the opposite is true here. Parents commit perjury on an artificial premise that they are protecting their offspring. Sparks convert to forest fires, children emulate the dysfunction, and the perpetrators profit. See pp 10-11, Dr. Leon Koziol, Federal Funded Epidemic: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry.

Corona Chronicles #17: Breaking News: Experts now say Cuomo and DeBlasio could have prevented 50%-80% of deaths in NYC. But they duped media and elevated infections.

 

 

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Since the beginning of humanity, parents everywhere have been charged with a duty to protect their offspring from all manner of harm. That duty does not end with child safety, good upbringing and eventual maturity. It lasts to our dying days, a duty to make life better for future generations. Otherwise parenting itself may be in vain.

Coronavirus has now presented itself as our greatest test in modern times. We cannot hunker down in silence while professional con-artists seize authoritarian power to grandstand, deceive and assert unscientific projections for headline-grabbing purposes. Some egos are simply insatiable, and we cannot allow such egos to elevate the harm to our children, neighbors and loved ones.

This was the motivation behind the current series of posts at http://www.leonkoziol.com entitled “Corona Chronicles.” Governor Andrew Cuomo was losing it with his headline-grabbing news conferences to distract public attention from his gross failures to timely arrest viral spread and prevent large scale deaths.

From a rejection of 16,000 ventilators offered to him in 2015 to a delayed closure of schools, airports and playgrounds into the month of April, he presided over the greatest carnage and risk to human life in state history. Typically ahead of my time in whistle blowing and reform efforts, I was again “ahead of the curve” on the political front lines here.

Now comes breaking news that Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill DeBlasio failed to take timely action which could have saved 50-80% of lives in the epicenter. This news comes from a very reliable source which is not being well reported by mainstream media. In today’s (British) Daily Mail, the ex-CDC chief of the United States, Dr. Thomas Frieden, made that conclusion.

This was something I have long asserted. You would think that someone would finally put a stop to their ineptness and carnage. Instead the two were allowed opened floodgates to upstate carnage with latent viral curves which may take much longer to run their course before our communities could re-open.

History may some day treat Andrew Cuomo as the “Governor of Death” for what he caused in two entirely distinct regions of our state. I refer you now to preceding posts of these Corona Chronicles to show how correct my concerns have been.

In the meantime it remains critical that you sign and promote our Citizen Petition to Protect Upstate New York and other states from Coronavirus Infections spreading out from America’s epicenter. New York City and Italy are two of the most impacted parts of the world today. We should learn from their failures.

Corona Chronicles #16: What will the “New Normal” look like after coronavirus? Where do religious leaders stand on court reform?

IMG_1001

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Earlier today, I referenced a front page New York Times article that finally exposed Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill DeBlasio for their gross mis-handling of the coronavirus epicenter. That article corroborated our recent posts in a series I call “Corona Chronicles.”

We need a similar story upstate as we look to the future, what they’re calling the “New Normal.” Of the countless followers I accumulated on four sites over the past ten years, nearly all are focused on corruption, parent alienation or Title IV-D court funding abuses.

But will anything change? Will it be business as usual at the other end of the curve? The answer may lie in what we do now while under a mass lock-down. It is critical to join in a master plan of sorts which transforms our nation’s family courts into a conciliatory environment.

Unfortunately, the public retains a higher regard for judges than they do lawyers or politicians, making such reform all but impossible given the lucrative nature of the “Old Normal” custody system. To debunk that myth, I have reported or acted on serious judge misconduct.

So, for example, on April 3, 2020, the New York Post featured an article regarding a “Long Island judge who copped to stealing dirty undies from the home of a female neighbor… resigned from the bench and has been stripped of his law license.” Here is an excerpt:

Long Island judge pleads guilty to raiding neighbor’s dirty panties

Suffolk County District Judge Robert Cicale pleaded guilty in September to second-degree attempted burglary, a felony, for breaking into the home of a 23-year-old woman who used to be the pervy judge’s intern on separate occasions and stealing panties from her laundry hamper.

The judicial panty-bandit was arrested in March 2018 as he was leaving the woman’s house — with his pockets stuffed full of her skivvies.

Cicale was sentenced to probation in November and was required to register as a sex offender.

The judge was suspended without pay following his arrest — but inexplicably held onto his position on the bench, which prevented local officials from holding an election to replace him.

Cicale finally agreed on March 31 to resign, according to documents released Friday by the state Commission on Judicial Conduct. His term was set to end on Dec. 31, though the New York Court of Appeals — the state’s highest court — could have ordered his removal prior to that date.

“The public cannot respect and the electorate cannot replace a judge who pleads guilty to a felony but holds on to office, despite being suspended without pay,” commission Administrator Robert Tembeckjian said in a news release.

Judicial conduct rules compel the highest standards of conduct both on and off the bench. Yet this judge did not resign or exhibit genuine remorse from the time of his arrest. He is far from alone in that regard. My child custody judge, Bryan Hedges, had to be permanently removed by New York’s high court when it appeared that he would seek re-election after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece.

Throughout this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, you will find one example after another of judges from the top down who were sent to federal prison, convicted of bribes and even a racist judge making violent threats from the bench who was allowed to stay in office (Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo assigned to my family court case).

On our bi-weekly conference calls, the examples keep coming in from around the country. We recently changed these calls from planning sessions for our annual march and lobby initiative in Washington to coping sessions while being denied child contact during home quarantine. I continue to give hope where I can.

One of our faithful participants, Dr. Anthony Pappas, a finance professor at St. Johns University, has insisted that we get religious organizations involved, making parallels to those who supported Dr. Martin Luther King. I have joined him at family rights conferences at the United Nations and Holy See Mission. He has written the Pope, fortunate to get a formal reply of encouragement, and is asking you to do the same:

Please ask for help from Pope Francis. A one-ounce letter by global first-class costs $1.20. The address is: His Holiness, Pope Francis; Apostolic Palace; VATICAN CITY. Ask him to take a leadership role in this time of crisis and support our efforts to reform these courts.

Another returning participant, Dr Martha Link, a psychologist, has asked us to be more aggressive in our exposures of judicial misconduct and lawyer over-billing practices. She has given us useful information. You are welcome to join every Monday and Thursday, 7pm ET. Call (605) 313-4427. Access code is 583326.

While quarantined, you can also easily sign and share our petition to contain the spread of coronavirus, crime and parental alienation during this crucial period. Just click on to the link below and be a part of the solution:

Corona Chronicles #11: Do religions offer any hope or explanation for this virus?

IMG_1001
This book was published two years ago along with Dr. Koziol’s novel, Voyage to Armageddon, in 2014. Both are available at Parenting Rights Institute. Satan’s Docket and last year’s report to Congress (Federal Funded Epidemic) gives you a startling first hand look at corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Is there something more profound about this mass murdering virus which should make us ponder? That issue arose in last night’s conference call, and like others I promised to research, this Corona Chronicle is directed to it. Your reactions are welcome.

For starters, I’m not a minister or holy roller, but I do attend Sunday services and retain a private spiritual side. As a practicing attorney I cringed often at the greed and immorality which dominated our so-called “family” courts. It moved me to take a principled stand against my profession resulting in horrific retributions.

That profession holds no monopoly on evil but its tentacles extend to virtually all other callings. Today we see politicians unable to speak truth, suppressing free speech and promoting abominations like few other periods in human history. Never before have so many of the weakest of our species cry out: “please don’t hurt me mommy” before being ripped from their wombs.

Never before has a “civilized” society sold aborted body parts, harmed so many children, shown such depraved behavior and degraded their God-given bodies with bizarre forms of sex. Animal intercourse is believed to be source of the AIDS virus, and in my nearby county, a man was caught on barn camera molesting cows.

Closer to now, a New Jersey doctor “died (of covid-19) in his husband’s arms in their Harlem apartment” according to the New York Post three days ago. I still have trouble with the notion of two husbands acting out a marital existence, the same of women. New forms of legalized sex can’t lead to enough public rest rooms.

Worst of all perhaps is the destruction of family, respect for parents and our moral fiber as a nation. We live in a world devoid of conscience, and our family courts are breeding grounds for much more than a virus. They are breeding greed, conflict and hatred.

I thank God that I’ve lived long enough to crave the days when community, family and parent-child loyalties were the norm. I would trade that for electronic devices, impersonal exchanges and fleeting luxury any day. Simple pleasures were more satisfying.

And maybe that is where this virus will ultimately take us. Maybe we have much less to fear after all. And so, when I went looking for religious answers to some of yesterday’s questions, I was quite dismayed when flipping open the bible to a random page. And here is what I found:

Romans 2: 1-32: subtitled, HUMANITY LOST WITHOUT THE GOSPEL

God’s Power for salvation

For I am not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes… For in it is revealed the righteousness of God from faith to faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous by faith will live.

Punishment of Idolators

The wrath of God is indeed being revealed from heaven against every impiety and wickedness of those who suppress the truth by their wickedness. For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God made it evident to them. Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived by those he has made.

As a result, they have no excuse, for although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks. Instead they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. While claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the likeness of an image of mortal man or of birds or of four-legged animals or of snakes. 

Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper.

They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed and malice, full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. They are gossipers and scandal-mongers and they hate God. They are insolent, haughty, boastful, ingenious in their wickedness, and rebellious toward their parents. They are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Shocking parallels can be drawn from this harsh reality and the prophesy which these biblical passages suggest. Could it be that “God’s invisible attributes” have been exchanged for an invisible evil which has no living qualities. Check out the expert depictions of the coronavirus and  how it is “received in persons:”

A recent headline in the Washington Post asserted that the “coronavirus isn’t alive. That’s why it’s so hard to kill.” In another article, the newspaper explains that “once inside a cell, a virus can make 10,000 copies of itself in a matter of hours. Within a few days, the infected person will carry hundreds of millions of viral particles in every teaspoon of his blood.”

Johns Hopkins virologist Andrew Pekosz puts it in plain terms:  These virus particles are a “destructive burglar. They break into your homes, eat your food, use your furniture and have 10,000 babies. And then they leave the place trashed.” So let us focus on the things we can control and stop this burglar dead in its tracks. Your families, children and future generations depend on it.

You can do so by signing and sharing our petition to prevent the spread of infection and crime from our nation’s epicenter using the link below:

Corona Chronicles #7: Let us dedicate April 1, 2020 to “Politicians Fooled Us Day.”

IMG_1925
In a lame effort to show New York’s tough response to widespread corruption in state government, Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed experts to his Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. Less than year later, after citizen testimony was exposing criminal activity among the state’s legislative leaders and even his top aid, Cuomo quickly disbanded his commission after only a few public hearings. One of those who testified, federal prosecutor Preet Bharara, was outraged by the cover-up and seized commission files leading to the conviction and imprisonment of these leaders and aid. Teflon Andy moved on unscathed. Dr. Leon Koziol was among those invited to testify at Pace University in Manhattan to expose corruption in our judicial branch of government. Within months of that testimony, he was publicly vilified and denied access to his children and law practice. This can be compared Dr. Li Wenliang at the epicenter of China’s coronavirus crisis who was discredited and threatened with imprisonment by the government there after blowing the whistle on a world impacting cover-up. He later died from the virus.

Unless you live on Mars, perhaps a safer place to live these days, you must have concluded by now that our politicians fooled us again, this time beyond anything we thought possible.

They hoarded wealth, publicity and the good life while their subjects were hoarding toilet paper. Shamelessly they left their constituents wholly unprepared for this coronavirus pandemic.

Now there are certainly hoards of us who follow the rules, we live a moral lifestyle and are genuinely concerned for our families and neighbors. We work hard to live up to our work ethic, and that’s precisely what the politicians are relying upon to bail them out.

Whether you are a medical provider, public safety officer, front line military or food provider, our fearless leaders (none visiting an overloaded hospital) are now busy drawing attention away from their reckless handling of this crisis long before it got here.

It may all sound very convincing as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo exploits every report to spread fear across America en route to the presidency. Duped by his oratory, the public is quick to forget how only two weeks earlier, he was touting New York as the world’s welcoming city while delaying containment measures.

Only days ago, even after that city became America’s epicenter, he was still opposing the president’s call for a quarantine. Now, after federal relief facilities limited services to non-coronavirus patients, and after destination states issued quarantine orders against New Yorkers, Andrew Cuomo is resorting to upstate New York. Albany Medical Center is already receiving untold numbers of epicenter patients.

Roughly 90% of New York upstate consists of non-urban land area. Until recently there were few infections, none in the northern Adirondack region. Politically weak, it is now being exploited as an undeserved destination spot, not only to contagious persons and released inmates but also infected patients.

Andrew Cuomo’s main expertise is not epidemiology, it is political oratory. He is now targeting unsuspecting residents to work together while acting contrary to everything we know about this virus. The unanimous goal of infectious disease experts is to contain the spread where found. But the great orator is rushing it to remote communities without touching a single patient, transporter or health provider exposed at the front lines of his dictates.

America’s true national leaders in Congress are content to let the orator do his thing because that draws attention away from their own “fool’s day” follies. Only weeks prior to an explosion of coronavirus infections, members of Congress were pulling out of the stock market using insider information. They profited in the millions with no concern for those they were elected to serve, now forced to absorb the losses.

When called to task under public pressure, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that he was opening an ethics probe into all this (about as effective as his costly impeachment strategy). One of those to be investigated replied with great confidence that no wrong was committed because he helped write the ethics laws (and therefore knew how to get around it).

Now in light of that and more, how can you trust anything coming from such politicians while you are left with the horrific burden of survival and paying back a record $2 trillion dollar rescue package that serves the pork barrel special interests of liberals and the corporate bail-outs of rich tycoons?

Let’s show these politicians that we’ve had enough. Get yourself on the moral side of this pandemic. Sign the petition to protect against coronavirus spread from America’s epicenter (hit link below) and get on the internet to recruit millions more.

Corona Chronicles #5: We did not elect Andrew Cuomo to bring virus and death to upstate New York

 

IMG_1925
Dr. Leon Koziol testfies before Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption in 2013. That Commission was prematurely disbanded by Cuomo when presenters began implicating the governor and legislative leaders in multiple scandals.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

We love our children upstate as much as parents do downstate. But we now have a governor who has seized dictatorial powers under his emergency authority to open the floodgates of a killer virus to upstate New York where, until recently, we had few infections.

Andrew Cuomo dropped the ball long ago when he failed to shut down New York City in a timely manner, even after it was announced that his director of the New York Port Authority tested positive for covid-19 at JFK Airport. While precious minutes, hours and days were being sacrificed to political competition between Cuomo, NYC Mayor DeBlasio, President Trump and California Governor Gavin Newsom (the latter over which state would end up with the highest number of infections), the virus itself was finding fertile ground everywhere for killing their constituents.

Now this dictator politician is testing the waters over a mass transfer of coronavirus patients to upstate New York hospitals which are already being overrun by a sudden surge in local virus victims. Indeed even my state representative, Brian Miller, was sent to an ICU in a hospital in the heart of New York State due to coronavirus complications no doubt traced to infected downstate staffers at the Capitol in Albany.

The tiny rural village of Hamilton, New York, where Colgate University is located, found its mayor testing positive for the infection. She was made subject to quarantine. To make matters worse, violent criminals are being released from Rikers Island and state prisons elsewhere to complicate law enforcement duties needed to contain this virus.

These criminal predators are following the herd of wealthy people escaping NYC for upstate hide-outs, bringing untold crime into our already threatened communities. Indeed this past weekend, a Cortland city police officer (just south of Syracuse) was not only shot during a domestic violence call, he was chased down to a secure location (hiding behind his  squad car).

Despite all this, and his historic containment failures, Governor Andy Cuomo is acting recklessly and arrogantly to escalate the infection rates and criminal threats across all of upstate New York. Unlike destination states elsewhere, i.e. the Carolinas and Florida, where self-quarantine is required of all New York visitors, Cuomo has done nothing of the sort to protect upstate New York.

To illustrate, I was privy tonight to a conversation involving a New Jersey resident boasting how he lived in proximity to the Fusco family which has been in the news due to the tragic deaths and virus infections of a single household. He had recently escaped to New York’s Adirondack Mountains, assuring all in his vicinity that he had been washing his hands and maintaining social distancing.

“If you’re in New York City,” he announced, “you can die.” That’s when I interrupted his misguided sermon to correct that you can die anywhere from coronavirus, it does not discriminate based on wealth, status or location. I also advised him that people around here are now well armed and he would do well to self-quarantine right away.

This Jersey resident was busy ordering all kinds of take-outs for his shelter camp somewhere nearby. In case you doubt the need for citizen action, his respectful treatment here was a far cry from a group of armed vigilantes in Maine who cut down a tree to block three men with New Jersey license plates from invading their community.

Governor Cuomo, despite his oratory to the contrary, has shown massive incompetence in the public quest to contain this virus. History might depict him some day as the “governor of death.” During my stellar career as a civil rights attorney and city councilman, I exposed corruption time and again, even testifying about corrupt judges and ethics lawyers before Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption in 2013.

This governor’s lack of sincerity was made clear when testimonials began implicating him and his staff in various scandals. He shut down the commission prematurely to protect himself and his family, not the rest of us victimized by his government. Leaders of both houses of the state legislature and his top aid were later prosecuted, convicted and imprisoned for crimes arising from Commission deliberations.

I was personally targeted and persecuted for my whistle blower testimony then, but this public alert is far greater than anything I have publicized in the past. We have to petition and protest this “governor of death” while we still can. He is a political con-artist, saavy enough to know that by the time we catch up to his evil, he will distract to the next news item.

Where is the leadership on this tragic trend upstate? If our representatives are too intimidated by Coumo’s oratory, I would be happy to debate this governor anytime on the crucial issues. Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon is one of the few upstate who are recognizing this trend as Syracuse coronavirus cases reached nearly 200 in a matter of days.

This site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, has been censored to the point of a government gag order which I removed through a lawsuit in New York Supreme Court in 2016. If you truly love your children, you will now heed my call to action. Our next conference call is tomorrow, Monday, March 30, 2020 at 7pm ET.

Our call number remains the same: (605) 313-4427 and the access code when prompted is 583326. You can also e-mail me at leonkoziol@gmail.com or call our PRI office at (315) 380-3420. For the sake of your families and businesses, share this message and join our fight against coronavirus corruption.

Corona Chronicles: A people-oriented series focused on those who are exploiting a human crisis in America

This professional advertisement provides a summary of litigation successfully completed by human rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, on behalf of those abused by powerful government and corporate entities during an unblemished 20-year law practice. Released in 2008, it was the same year that a witch hunt was commenced to suppress and censor his vital public message against court corruption and parent-child alienation.

As a judicial whistleblower, Dr. Koziol had no legal protection unlike other types of whistleblowers. That put him in the same category as Dr. Li Wenliang, the doctor in Wuhan Province, China who tried to warn the world about the coronaviris epidemic. Like Dr. Koziol (Juris Doctor), he was discredited, publicly vilified and persecuted for his exercise of free speech. Dr. Wenliang ultimate died from coronavirus infection.

Dr. Koziol nearly succumed as well to a secret “shoot on site” warrant in 2018 for child support obligations concocted for the similar purpose of suppressing his free speech here. While that ordeal is well documented throughout this blog site, our court corruption agenda has now been suspended during the coronavirus epidemic to bring you a series of articles focused on those abusing this crisis for personal gain. It is designed to elicit responsible action from our public servants.

Consequently you might compare this series to the pamphlets known as Common Sense, distributed by Thomas Payne during the Revolutionary War, or the Federalist Papers published in an effort to convince the states to adopt our Constitution.

Through these chronicles, we must demand united, honest and active responses from our federal and state governments in the fight to eradicate coronavirus as quickly as possible. When you look at the members of Congress who used insider information to pull out of the stock market at great profit to themselves, the conclusion is inescapable: they could care less about us or the people they serve.

Even now, their greed, posturing and self-promotion are obvious, showing that many will work against their constituent interests, our families, businesses and future generations. The deceit practiced by both major political parties is an abomination, and the ongoing infighting in Congress behind rescue legislation may be more damaging than the virus itself.

Indeed, one leader of a national physician association chastised these politicians to “get off your asses” and take immediate, responsible action. This places upon us, “we the people,” a duty to get involved. It is no time to leave our medical providers in harm’s way, no time for apathy or surrender. They got us focused, and now we will hold our public officials accountable.

Think of this virus as an opportunity to start a new beginning for our government, one based on founding principles that have been abandoned in practice, one nation proudly under God, and one in which corruption might finally be eradicated along with this virus.

To that end we will be forming a coalition of volunteers and good government groups behind such initiatives as a nationwide petition, conference calls, interactive virtual meetings and more. Our recent series of calls will be converted to zoom interactions to improve our effectiveness while opening this site for the first time to responsible comments and suggestions.

This site was made subject to a state gag order in 2016 which was removed when we sued the issuing judge in New York Supreme Court. It is regularly monitored by lawyers, public officials and media. We have evidence of tampering, censorship and suppression by tech giants which must be addressed through our collective skills and energies. First Amendment suppression cannot be tolerated under our form of government.

No more fear-mongering, no more depression, no more tolerance for corruption at such a crucial time in our history. We begin our Corona Chronicles tomorrow on this site. Feel free to give us your vital input by e-mail at leonkoziol@gmail.com or calling our office at (315) 380-3420.

Our next conference call is this Thursday, March 26th at 7pm ET. All who are interested may join in. The call number remains the same: (605) 313-4427. Access code when prompted is 583326.

For the sake of the people, share this message!
