Coronavirus Whistleblower Ignored in China Like Family Court Whistleblower is being Ignored Here

For over a decade I have been researching, investigating and reporting on a growing epidemic in America’s divorce and family courts. My experience as a civil rights attorney and victimized parent made me ideally qualified to expose this epidemic. It also made me a judicial whistle blower with no legal protection.

Accordingly, the state was able to retaliate with impunity, seizing my income capacities, children, diverse liberties and unblemished credible reputation. It was all designed to convince the public that there was no epidemic, parent alienation syndrome (PAS) was a fiction, and lawyer profits were justified.

This reaction can scarcely be distinguished from the targeting of Dr. Li Wenliang, the whistleblower who warned of the existence and spread of the coronavirus. He was isolated, ridiculed and discredited by the Chinese government in a similar manner.

Sadly Dr. Wenliang made the ultimate sacrifice when he recently succumbed to the virus that he warned about. Like me as a victimized parent, he was the victim of a growing epidemic. And I was nearly killed by it.

This site, Leon Koziol.com, is filled with proof of this. For example, I sponsored the Parent March on Washington, a 3-day event that featured parental advocates and court reformers delivering my report to all members of Congress.

That report was entitled, A Federal Funded Epidemic: Vital Report Justifying a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts. It was completed and delivered long before anyone even knew about the coronavirus.

However, like Dr. Wenliang’s reports, it was ignored, censored and threatened ultimately by a shoot on sight threat of a traffic cop purporting to enforce an unlawful child support warrant. Follow-up lobbying efforts have fallen on deaf ears. Consequently the carnage will grow in the coming months.

In my report, I cited only a few prominent examples of this carnage, i.e. at pp. 10-11:

In countless family court cases, records are falsified and misconduct is concealed or disregarded to protect judicial reputation. Judges are widely deemed to be beyond reproach. Tragedies have there resulted from oversight failures and a lack of criminal prosecutions involving human rights violations under federal law such as the one cited above. Four cases highlight the horrific consequences to parents, veterans, families and law enforcement over the past decade: 

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. 

Join us and spread the word regarding upcoming events so that this epidemic can finally be addressed.

Preet Bharara: Corruption Fighter or Self-Promoter?

 I testified along with Preet Bharara and Loretta Lynch before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption on September 17, 2013. As followers of this site, www.leonkoziol.com know, I exposed an epidemic in our divorce and family courts citing federal funding abuses under the Title IV-D program. I compared judicial misconduct to a docket sheet in any criminal court.

I also exposed family judges who were awarding me fictional college degrees nowhere in any record to elevate support obligations to unmanageable levels. They refused to correct those errors to the present day, making those degrees the “law of the case” and a feat which no university would dare attempt. This is just part of a shocking ordeal soon to be featured in my book, Killing Courts: A True Story of Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry.  Justice is actually occurring in unexpected ways.

Exactly three weeks after that testimony, a process was started to take my daughters from me in retaliation. These “family” judges could not come out and admit it, so they abused judicial office instead with a series of conditions designed to discredit my public message. Only two months later, that process was complete without any finding of unfit parenting. It was a process more familiar to the Third Reich than our third branch of government.

While all this serious “corruption” was occurring to an expendable judicial whistleblower, Loretta Lynch and Preet Bharara were focusing on self-promotion, ignoring my phone calls and reports to their respective offices in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I guess the little victims were not so important as the big time crooks who could give them a name and career advancement. Let’s face it, if you’re self-absorbed and trying to grab media headlines, exposing family law corruption isn’t exactly a sexy topic that’s going to get you any real notoriety. Instead, it’s easier to avoid the elephant in the room and look the other way.

For Loretta’s part, she was later elevated to U.S. Attorney General by Barack Obama where her principal claim to fame was a “family” discussion with Bill Clinton on a tarmac of an Arizona airport. It just so happened at the time that our nation’s top prosecutor was wrapping up a confidential investigation of Hillary’s long list of crimes during her ill-fated campaign for president.

Meanwhile a scorned Preet Bharara was out slaying one corrupt state leader after the other in reaction to Governor Andrew Cuomo who prematurely dissolved his Corruption Commission. He did so when testimony began to implicate the governor himself. For reasons that have not been credibly explained, Andy got a free pass. Even when the “Buffalo Billions” funding scandal came public in 2016, implicating aids closest to the governor, Andy was again excused. It made possible a 2020 campaign for president with Preet as a likely pick for Attorney General. Does anyone else see the logic to all this?

Now we have Preet in love with himself like never before, defying his boss, President Donald Trump, who offered to continue Preet as a prosecutor when standard political procedure was to remove hold-overs loyal to prior bosses. Preet is endeavoring to disguise his overriding ambitions by claiming a rule of independence. But where was that rule when his former boss, Loretta, was on the tarmac with Bill during an investigation of our former secretary of state?

While these political predators are busy corrupting our federal offices, the people are unable to get accountability for their “inconsequential” suffering at the hands of corrupt judges and unethical lawyers, like those engaged in the witch hunt against me. They were allowed to resign by their appeals court employers for falsifying time sheets without any public charges, ethical or criminal, ever brought against them (our standard-bearers of lawyer ethics charged with a duty of preventing over-billing practices).

Imagine what would happen if you or I stole from a court of law? It was clearly a politically expedient maneuver to quell a very embarrassing scandal within New York’s high courts. Yet to this day, nothing has been done to investigate the many cases of those who testified against our third branch of government while hundreds who also came to testify were locked outside on the streets.

A highly researched report was completed by me on March 1, 2017 which exposes an epidemic of scandalous proportion in our nation’s divorce and family courts. It is being shared with people close to the White House with the hope that the “judicial swamp” can be drained of its corruption. I have received many calls for a copy of this report but because I am unfunded and bankrupted by these retributions, I am asking for donations and investor contacts.

It is a trillion dollar industry we are fighting here. Among the calls are moms and dads at wits end concerning their court ordeals. I may have prevented yet another suicide today. For this reason I am welcoming anyone who needs the kind of encouragement I can offer. Believe me, you are not alone. If you know such a person, have him or her call me direct at (315) 796-4000. I do not seek compensation or donations for emergency calls.
