Police Brutality worse than Rodney King with MASSIVE cover up

Former Pennsylvania Police Officer Larry Hohol should be lauded for bringing the details of this atrocity to public scrutiny and for his unique and tempered analysis of the case.

Here is a concise review of the case:

  • The name of the brutality victim is 33 year old (31 at the time) Robert Leone.
  • Leone had his driver's license reinstated from a non-accident DUI before this incident.
  • Leone is mistakenly flagged by officer to be pulled over because his car matched a description from a minor accident.
  • Poor decisions by officers made it impossible for Leone to comply with the officers' commands.
  • Excessive force used by officers (including tazing) even after Leone's hands and feet are bound.
  • Leone taken to hospital several times; Officers assault Leone in the hospital when Leone quietly pleads for intercession of hospital staff. Leone taken from the hospital with irregular vital signs.
  • Leone pleads for help from judge over video conference but connection abruptly ends due to suspect technical difficulties.
  • Leone remains in prison with several denied parole hearings; yet, prison warden marvels that Leone is a model prisoner.
  • It has been postulated that Leone's denied parole coincides with an conscious effort to exhaust the statute of limitations on police malfeasance.

For Larry Hohol's complete assessment of Leone's case: http://www.theluzernecountyrailroad.com/police-brutality.php

For recent local news coverage of Leone's case: http://www.wicz.com/news2005/viewarticle.asp?a=23902

Hohol is completely right in his assessment; the implications of the injustice of Leone's case has implications for every American citizen but perhaps especially for Pennsylvanians. Share this far and wide!!!

My wife went to HS with this man.

After watching this video, I cant believe he did anything to deserve this treatment. How hard is it to handcuff and take a person to the Police station with out a beating, why were these officers not able to restrain their aggressions against him?
However all this occurred, if he did something wrong i can see or not, the treatment by the Pennsylvania State Police was very wrong and he is still sitting in jail while they keep their jobs.

"This is a support group for the brutal and malicious attack on Robert Charles Leone by some of the men of the Pennsylvania State Police. We are all gathered here on this group to show support for Leone, to make a statement that this kind of behavior is absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated especially by law enforcement officials, to try and reach out to whoever will listen and share this story, and to make sure something is done about these State Troopers who still wake up in the morning to go to work and "protect and serve". "


Tortured for 6 hours, attempted murder, massive coverup...

and still in jail.

I trust there's an attorney or 2 or 3 who will defend Mr. Leone and make these so-called State Troopers and all involved in the coverup rue the day they were born. If not, we're ALL screwed.

damn it!

this is the kinda scheisse that elicits primal rage from the citizenry.

so sick and tired of watching my fellow innocent brethren get beaten, or murdered at the hands of govt terrorists.

the most sickest part is that these copthugs had the nerve to actually arrest him, or at least what looks like an arrest photo, due to the clearly present 'height ticker' mark in the backdrop.'

his face tells the entire story. ANYONE who can rationalize that it was necessary to beat a man to pulp to that extent to 'merely restrain' him for an arrest, is by definition a psychotic sociopath.

do not be surprised if they air the opinions of this statist institution in defense of these govt terrorists.
