Kendra’s Chronicles: A Story of Two Little Girls Harmed by a Corrupted Family Court in Hillary Clinton’s Village.

094
A loving dad’s surprise gift to his little girls with memories to last an eternity.

Crucial Introduction:

A lucrative child control industry has emerged in America’s divorce and family courts, inflicting moral, educational and productivity declines among our cities, towns and villages. It has made us the most litigious nation in the world as we spend our valuable time and energies on court contests instead of more constructive pursuits. 

It’s one thing when the fight concerns products or property but quite another when innocent children are exploited. As parents bound by laws of nature, we cannot remain idle in this escalating crisis while lawyers, bureaucrats and “experts” profit at our children’s expense. How many little ones will never see a good education or career in today’s competitive global market because their parents squandered life’s savings on endless court battles?

It’s not all our fault despite what many judges claim. They know privately that needless court battles are ended only because the money runs out. In the meantime, they could care less that our children or families suffer. Outdated custody doctrine is vigorously retained over shared parenting because unequal classifications beget controversy which, in turn, justifies state intervention. It is a crisis created by socialist-liberals who made the policy case long ago that government is better suited to raise our children. 

Hillary Clinton made the same case against both moms and dads in her 90s era book, “It Takes a Village.” Her propaganda sounded good at the time because children were used as a pretext for big government, but it resulted in further erosion of parental authority, leaving minors free to set their own standards of behavior. Almost anything a parent does today to correct a child can be the subject of an agency inquiry, school report or custody impairment. 

In plain terms, Hillary’s village works like this: get the people of a community gossiping about their neighbors’ private affairs. Convince them to report objectionable styles of parenting to authorities. Once under a court’s jurisdiction, these fit parents can be conformed to an elusive standard for lawyers to argue and profit over. It goes on all the time in divorce and family courts with “parent education” programs and court ordered evaluations.

This is our latest series regarding court corruption entitled “Kendra’s Chronicles.” Here we provide you with real life injuries caused by socialist policies injected into family litigation. Judges overwhelmed by their “super-parent” roles and overcrowded dockets issue orders based on scripted testimony or lawyer summaries having little regard for the human tragedies they produce. It can easily become a “turn ’em and burn ’em” enterprise. 

In “King’s Chronicles” we showed you how a new family judge named Daniel King of Lowville, New York abused state power in retaliation for Dr. Leon Koziol’s public criticisms and reform testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. His criticisms included King’s fabricated college degree, parenting conditions in violation of a higher court order and impositions which placed his critic (Koziol) under risk of contempt by ambush.

Ultimately two innocent children were denied access to a fit and loving  father for a period of 456 days and counting. This human rights atrocity committed upon Dr. Koziol was orchestrated through absurd parenting conditions added with each public criticism until Leon was forced to abandon his role as a natural father. Here we give you some heart wrenching consequences of Dan King’s egotism in a court which might as well be located in Hillary Clinton’s village.

DADDY, I WANT TO GO THERE!

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Author’s note: My daughters’ names have been substituted with “Shelly” the elder and “Debbie” the younger for purposes of this website post. Collectively, and with further editing, this series will comprise a part of my book to be published later this year.

“Daddy, I want to go there!”

It was an uncontrolled scream from a five year old girl which I will never forget as long as I live. Only words, I’ll admit, but they were the world to me coming from my eldest daughter as I opened the front door to our home early one morning. There in the distance was an elaborate playground constructed specially for her and her sister as a father’s day surprise.

The year was 2007, a long time ago, but only if you measure it as a business person. I can recall every detail of Shelly’s facial expressions as she took in something bordering on paradise. Miraculously it had appeared overnight. That was enough for Debbie to exploit the moment, shoving past her older sister into the sunlit yard with a sound that ignited sparrows, robins and blue jays from all surrounding tree limbs. As if on cue, our nearby frog pond erupted with croaking and splash-outs.

Well it worked! All my efforts to make this event a memorable one paid off. You might call it perfect. But you should also know that it was anything but easy. I had to order the apparatus from Georgia and have the area excavated, rearranged and protected by two retaining walls. On one occasion, I rode my girls on a bobcat during a clearing process to give them a sense of participation in this project (with no idea of what was coming). I never disclosed this fact until just now, so don’t report me to their mom.

When the playground components arrived, my contractor went to work (as I did to my law office to pay for it all). After several days, the assembly phase turned into a real mess. The guys could not seem to put everything together properly. I was furious when learning of it outside the courthouse. But that’s where the rescue came in. I was representing an old college friend who I had just gotten out of a real mess of her own without any fee. She owned a ranch and knew a few things usually reserved to men.

Hearing my dilemma, she quickly offered to rectify the errors. With the help of her woman assistant, she completed paradise in time for father’s day. Favors have a way of coming back around. This client will be forever remembered for her rescue as will another very special woman who arrived one year later, about the time when a trampoline was added to the mix. Together we made this place a regular treat for my little girls. These are exciting stories reserved to a later episode in this series.

You might think that a private playground of this caliber meant that my girls would become spoiled. Quite the contrary, they enjoyed the public venues even more. I can still remember Shelly, she couldn’t have been but one or two, dutifully lugging her “Blues Clues” up the ladder with endless repetition before throwing the poor puppy down the slide with a glee that resonated across New Hartford Town Park. And Debbie, running off to the “wilderness” (trail system) which had me split in every direction.

At Lake George, our summer destination, I will never forget a playground near East Cove where the girls enjoyed themselves as much as they did boating and swimming. I don’t believe those outings were eclipsed until many years later when I took both up for their first para-sail adventure. And boy did I hear it from mom in a family court petition after that one! But she was a “custodial parent” by then which changed everything.

I like to think I was different than most dads at these public playgrounds. While they watched or tended to their barbeque grills, I was chasing my girls all across the slides, monkey bars and whatever else was there to exploit. They easily made lots of friends because the other children would simply join in the games I made up to everyone’s delight. Some of the parents knew I was a lawyer and probably figured that our activities were liability-proof, or more likely that I had regressed to my own childhood.

No matter. I didn’t really care. As a “non-custodial parent,” my time was sadistically limited by our courts, so I would be taking full advantage of such moments, knowing they would one day find their way into memories like this one. Although moms seemed to dominate these places, I actually think that playgrounds were constructed with dads in mind. Such fun places resonated deeply within my girls. That much I know.

In practical terms, these playgrounds are all gone now. The one at my home hasn’t been visited in more than a year. But in my mind I can still hear the laughter, the crying, the giggling, whispering, and happy faces, indeed all the things that made them so special in their day.

Yes, playgrounds were a means for overcoming that weekend warrior status accorded to fathers under “the law.” But above all else, they have reserved to another time and place the fact that my girls had a genuine father who loved them, then and now and for eternity.

Leon Koziol Featured on Charleston Television For Fathers’ Rights

 

Attorney Malik Shabazz, national president of Black Lawyers for Justice demands justice in Charleston


Administrator’s summary; if you’ve been following recent posts on this site, then you know that Leon has been in Charleston, South Carolina this past week advocating for fathers’ rights in connection with the Walter Scott murder. He has been working diligently to shift government and media focus from the race aspects of this horrendous incident to the family court abuses which triggered it. 

To that end he has been distributing his report made public last month in Nashville entitled “We Are Fathers” to civil rights leaders and government representatives. His progress reports can be found here at Leon Koziol.com, a site devoted to family law reform. After vocalizing his concerns before national media, Leon was featured on Charleston television yesterday. 

As we become educated to these draconian support collection practices, it is increasingly clear that Leon’s efforts are vital because good fathers are now being killed by law enforcement for delinquent family court debts. Here no crime was committed. Instead a black father was shot in the back by a North Charleston police officer who is now in jail without bail on murder charges. 

This father had long experienced the discrimination and abuses which convinced him that Justice was better served on the streets than in these courts. He just never expected he could be murdered by a cop for failing to pay his bills. It’s a scary incident which could occur to any father in America today given the false criminal stigmas and sexist slurs being advanced by our own federal government as recently as 2012 in Justice Department news releases.

The Walter Scott incident, preserved on a video seen around the world, shows an unarmed father fleeing arrest on a support warrant at a traffic stop for a broken tail light. The cop fired eight shots from a distance at the fleeing debtor with five bullets entering his back, one in the heart. 

The white officer is then shown casually walking over to his victim and cuffing him face down as he took his final breath. Again there was no crime committed but the family court warrant was now executed with no money or daddy for the children. Here is how Leon finally managed to shift focus in Charleston:

It wasn’t easy, in fact I was beginning to think it was a lost cause. Despite all my appearances, participation in media events and interactions with civil rights protesters and government officials all across Charleston, South Carolina this past week, once again no one was listening. I reiterated my statements concerning the killer in the Walter Scott case, emphasizing not the cop named Michael Slager but the silent and insidious accomplice known as family court.

In yet another news conference today at North Charleston City Hall, everyone was focused on race as a lawyer for protesters in Ferguson, Missouri announced a new wave of protests here. I had delivered my report to the local organizer of the event but the father issues remained without mention by anyone. So once again I asserted myself on the media side of the presentations before the keynote speaker.

In his riveting keynote address, Attorney Malik Shabazz, national president of Black Lawyers for Justice, described black men as the hunted ones, killed “like deer and dogs.” During subsequent media interviews, I raised the father discrimination aspects surrounding the Walter Scott murder which set this case apart from all other racially charged incidents across the country. I cited three status based factors which worked against this particular victim: he was black, a man and a father. I urged all in attendance to support my public appeal for a Justice Department investigation to prevent more of these incidents.

At the request of the event organizer, I was asked to hand deliver my report “We Are Fathers” to Attorney Shabazz at the podium. A resounding applause ensued when I did. The keynote speaker joined in the issues raised and went further. He agreed that the support warrant was a major concern and that he would study my report for answers and reform efforts.

Following this national media event, I was approached by African-American victims of court injustices. Of course I could not provide assistance due to the retributions experienced back in New York for my public predictions that materialized here. I was then asked to give a separate live interview on Charleston television. I will provide further details in a later post.

We’re making progress fellow parents, fathers and victims. Regrettably I feel like I’m doing it alone in Charleston but a profound statement had to be made here for all family court victims across America. We’ll continue to keep you informed.

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol Meets Al Sharpton at Site of Walter Scott Shooting.

Leon Koziol, J.D. and the Rev. Al Sharpton
Leon Koziol, J.D. and the Rev. Al Sharpton

Administrator’s note: Leon has been in Charleston, South Carolina seeking support for family court reform in light of the police shooting of an unarmed father fleeing an arrest for a child support warrant. We’ve shown you the video taken of this father shot five times in the back with no concern for his condition afterward. Leon traces the route of the same video taker at a vigil held today at the site of Walter Scott’s murder. The North Charleston police officer is in jail on murder charges. Here is what Leon reports from the vigil site.

I had an opportunity to chat with Al Sharpton today at the site of Walter Scott’s murder here in North Charleston. It was during a vigil ceremony with everything about the place coming across very surreal.

I have reviewed this travesty in my mind with horror, finding it hard to grasp that it was all caused by a child support warrant. Our government is actually killing fathers now for money. Of course we know that this cop who shot Walter Scott had to be deranged, but the fact is, that’s what happened here. Without the warrant, this killing would not have occurred.

I focused on the exact spot where Walter Scott fell in that video which continues to haunt me as a father myself. A collection of flowers marks the spot which might as well be sacred ground today. It should move all fathers to action. We cannot allow greed and money to be a cause for police force and debtor prisons. A planned rally on June 19th (fatherless day) at the Supreme Court should be everyone’s focus to secure respect and fair treatment in our family courts.

I retraced the route of this father fleeing yet another stint in prison for being a support debtor. I struggled with the sounds of eight gun shots, five which landed in the back and one through the heart. I examined the distance between the officer and the location where the victim fell. I recalled how the cop casually walked over and hand-cuffed the debtor as he took his final breath. The family court warrant had now been executed!

On the other side of a worn-out fence, I placed myself in the shoes of the video taker. I was amazed at how he had to be in the right place and the right time for justice to be served. Fortunately he had the courage and presence of mind to complete his vital mission under a profound fear of being shot himself.

Gradually the crowd and camera crews dissipated. I was among the last to leave when I noted a biker gang in an adjacent lot. Out of respect for the attendees, they waited patiently and largely unnoticed until the place was empty. Then they formed a loud circular procession in order to make their own statement, concluding with a united linear back-up to the vicinity where the cop committed his crime. I felt a bit like the video taker when I captured this scene from the other side of the fence.

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol Meets North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey

IMG_1588
Leon Koziol, J.D. & Mayor R. Keith Summey of the City of North Charleston, SC


Administrator ‘s note: Leon has been in Charleston, South Carolina this past week promoting fathers rights and racial justice in our family courts emanating from the Walter Scott murder. He’s been making headway at numerous events, becoming known among community leaders and protesters on a broad spectrum of attendees. Here’s what he’s reporting today:

The Los Angeles Times refers to him as the popular South Carolina mayor who’s weathered the storm over the police killing of an unarmed African-American father fleeing from a child support warrant. And I had a chance to meet him personally after sharing my purpose for being in his city.

His name is Keith Summey and he was  accompanied by a very personable and helpful assistant who listened intently to my own ordeals as a fathers  rights advocate. Later I participated in another media session outside the church in North Charleston after hearing a riveting sermon by Reverend Al Sharpton. Don’t ask how I managed to get in, but the kind ushers I’ve come to know at various events helped out.

Here the people have been remarkably kind, compassionate and even cheerful. They have welcomed me with open arms during these trying times. And you have to hand it to Al Sharpton, he really knows how to get a crowd going in so many ways. From passionate sermonizing to stand-up comedy, Reverend Sharpton had everyone laughing and loving one another by the time of benediction.

Outside, it was back to business as Mayor Summey gave an update short of disclosing details of ongoing investigations. A civil rights lawsuit has already been filed of the kind I routinely prosecuted back in New York. I have been invited to join a congregation which is sponsoring a candlelight vigil at the scene of the Walter Scott shooting made infamous by that shocking video seen around the world.

Last night I spoke with leaders who sponsored a protest inside North Charleston City Hall. I’ve been handing out my 25-page report released last month entitled “We Are Fathers.” In it, I predicted continued violence and victimization among minority fathers due to a broad failure of our family courts and federal government to recall and reform draconian support enforcement practices. I also predicted that it would place law enforcement in harm’s way.

You don’t take a child away from its parents without proper cause. Support debts are not a valid cause, and you don’t come between a father and his children without risking serious emotional reactions. I shared my report with Fox News and other media on the scene of these daily events. Excerpts of that report have been published at Leon Koziol.com in a series entitled “King’s Chronicles.” Stay tuned for more updates to include a mass protest at City Hall tomorrow which was announced only moments ago.

False Accusations in Family Court Overlooked to Incite Emotions, Conflict and Profits.

index

Meanwhile Fathers in Debtor Prisons Give us Distinction as Most Imprisoned Nation in the World!

So you’d rather watch tournament games and go bowling than support a “We Are Fathers” campaign for justice and equality. Well that’s your choice, it’s a free country, in theory anyway. But you should know that  countless lawyers, child experts and bureaucrats are cheering you on because they profit from all this apathy and a misguided sense of priorities.

Fathers rights and court reform have failed time and again because the victims are complaining about the symptoms, they’re only interested in their personal war stories, and they would rather pay the lawyers who grow their problems than contribute to reform entities like this one committed to everyone’s benefit. In short, today’s fathers are not shooting straight, if at all, even when the target is right in front of them.

That target is a federal support law which must be repealed or modified to comport with present day realities. It means we must focus our efforts at the nation’s capital. Instead victims have come to some bizarre conclusion that someone else will travel there, do all the work and pay for it. They think that five guys with signs in front of a local court might influence reform.

As our report, “We Are Fathers” explains, the support standards law under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act rewards the states based on the number and magnitude of support orders manufactured in their domestic relations courts.  Put another way, all judges presiding over support cases benefit from higher awards, making them inherently biased under the same federal law. It’s all part of a trillion dollar child control industry.

To keep the federal money flowing, competing states must retain the antiquated custody scheme as opposed to shared parenting. This in turn benefits lawyers and third parties who thrive on the conflicts naturally inflamed by an unjust and unequal parenting system.

Let’s face it , when was the last time you heard of a scorned mother imprisoned for perjury or false reports? Such a precedent would lead to less conflict and less money for lawyers. Meanwhile fathers are being thrown into prison every day without the commission of any crime simply because of the unrealistic support orders made through biased judges.

They’ll tell you it’s all for uniformity sake, that the state knows best how to raise your children, but we know it’s all about the money. If you haven’t learned that by now, keep watching the balls go round and round while feminists next door at the government arenas are rallying for more laws you don’t know about.

Census Bureau reports continue to show that 85% of all parents paying support are fathers. Moreover, nearly 100% of all litigants committed to debtor prisons for back support are men, adding to our dubious distinction as the most imprisoned population in the free world. Minorities and veterans  suffer a higher rate of abuse but hey, who’s counting. This gold mine is so lucrative that judges will set aside the Constitution to keep the unequal treatment in place.

So next time you’re watching a tournament game, don’t forget to have a buyer for your tickets when a sheriff serves you with a support petition or arrest warrant. In an upcoming post we’ll tell you about a neuro-surgeon in Manhattan who spent over $4.5 million fighting false allegations only to lose free contact with his children while facing potential incarceration. With this economy, you can easily become the next victim.

As we’ve said repeatedly, no amount of money is enough in these courts. They’ll be happy to take your children’s college funds to feed the greed. So please support this vital cause today. Make a donation at Leon Koziol.com and help recruit participants for our “Fatherless Day” rally at the Supreme Court on June 19th. Because they’re your children too.

Discrimination Now Legal on Both Sides of Mason-Dixon Line

Leon Koziol at Country Music Hall of Fame

Fatherless Friday, June 19th, Set for Rally at Supreme Court

It used to be that discrimination was legal only in states south of the Mason-Dixon border, but after completing our fathers rights meetings this week in Nashville, we have concluded that discrimination is now legal on both sides of that line.

On an increasing scale each year fathers are being remanded to the role of visitors or virtual parents in their children’s lives simply because of their male birth status. They are then subjected to indentured service to scorned adversaries known as custodial parents ultimately becoming legal sub-class citizens with the specter of debtor prisons hanging over their heads.

Indeed all manner of constitutional protection has been set aside under a judge made law dating back to feudal England known as equity power. Under this authority fathers can be targeted as criminals simply because they have relocated to other states in search of employment. The vast majority of fathers cannot possibly know that they are considered criminals due to a support debt treated as a tax by our government.

The situation today is completely out of control because fathers are allowing it. They would rather go bowling or watch tournament games than get personally involved in a long overdue reform effort. Not a single one to date has stepped up to the plate to recruit participants at a rally in Washington on fatherless day, June 19th.

For those of you unfamiliar with the fatherless day tradition, it is the annual Friday before Fathers’ Day which equal rights advocates have set aside to conduct nationwide rallies against Family Court abuses at courthouses and state capitals across the country. Most Americans are unaware of this tradition because the media has suppressed it and our government has exploited discrimination for profit. It simply does not fit into the civil rights categories defined by liberals and feminists.

But the reality is that father discrimination is at the root of social ills in this nation. Here in Nashville we have decided to do something about it. A series of posts at Leon Koziol. com  describes a We Are Fathers campaign to end the last bastion of legal discrimination remaining unchecked in America today.

But for this campaign to succeed, all concerned people must get involved. Reform is not free and it won’t be done by your neighbor or  some stranger. These are your children too and they rely on your donations and personal recruitment efforts. Otherwise, like all prior reform efforts, it will suffer a quick death.

Proud To Be An American: It Doesn’t Get Any More Country Than This!

  

Nashville Country Music Singers Praise America and Our Flag.

If you’ve been to Nashville or Music City and Smashtown as they call it,  then you know that all they feature here are patriotism, the flag and country music. It’s just the way it is. Like it or leave it, no hard feelings.

I was fortunate to love all three while being escorted around downtown one night. My hosts took me to some of the hot spots, there were just too many to choose from, and I would have been lost trying to find the “right” ones. They even got me to some special entrances to by-pass the lines.

At least five blocks on either side of the main boulevard as far as I could tell boasted a string of country bars and clubs. Okay there was an occasional souvenir shop to break up the monotony, but a bar or two for every building, some three stories high dwarfed by tall office buildings all around. Every place had a band or two. And as one broke down, another was setting up. Just to play at any of  these venues, you had to be one step from stardom.

The people here are friendly, down to earth and they come from all over the country. You can learn a lot from a place like this just from conversation and the performances. For example, I learned from a taxi driver that there were fathers in Nashville escaping family court abuses by seeking asylum in foreign countries. At one club, the lead singer of a large band dedicated a series of songs to our military, emphasizing that he came from a family generation of service men.

It occurred to me during all the cheering for our military that we were toasting men and fathers that were coming home to unjust laws and discrimination. It convinced me that my trip down here was for a worthy cause because I still find myself unable to reconcile these praises with the conduct of our government when the same service men return to the states. 

As many of you know from our recent posts, I am seeking funding behind a  “We Are Fathers” campaign designed to secure long overdue equality and fair treatment in our nation’s divorce and family courts. I was therefore proud to join the toast of the lead singer with much more than a glass. 

I raised my report high in the air to signify that there were people in his audience doing something more profound to assure that the rights and freedoms promoted by our military were being protected here at home. Nashville, what a wonderful town, truly the heart of America.
