Protesters Call for Justice for Robert Leone

Protesters Call for Justice for Robert Leone

Reported by: Shannon Lins

Towanda, Pa. - Protesters called for justice for Robert Leone Friday in Bradford County.

In a story we first brought you on Wednesday, a video showing five Pennsylvania State Troopers arresting Leone has gone viral. That's because some say the State Police used excessive force.




The Youtube video shows a March 2010 arrest of then 31-year-old Robert Leone of Vestal. Pennsylvania State Police said he led them on a low speed chase after a hit and run and resisted arrest. But the video and mugshot brought dozens of people out to support a man most of them don't even know.

Protesters held signs, chanted and visited with Robert Leone's parents outside the Bradford County Courthouse. People we spoke with said they are among the now 65,000 viewers of the Youtube video over the past week. They're calling for a national investigation into the behavior of five Pennsylvania State Troopers.

"There's possibly a good chance that there's a cover up at all levels,” said Mike Kitner of Towanda. “We just want some answers, we want somebody to come down and look into it because we're not getting any."

Talk about bullying in our schools. And who do the kids look up to! "I want to be a police officer when I grow up"! That is what I heard from two of my boys when they were little. They should be relieved of duty until this nasty business is taken care of. NO, they should be FIRED. The Pennsylvania police Commissioner should look into this NOW. Gives State police a bad name. Too many of them literally think they are God and that you should bow down to them. WE pay their wages so I think the citizens of this township should have say as to whether they keep their jobs or not. Bet the majority will say "Fire their sorry asses.!"

Where are all the hard core "police are heroes" folks now? No comments? Imagine that. Ive been talking about this kind of corruption for a LONG time on this blog and all I ever get are negative responses about how great the police are. Where are you now???

Anonymous said...

I was being sarcastic. I am not shocked in the least. I know of a significant cover-up perpetuated by several State police officers at the Coudy barracks not long after the local barracks became a breeding ground for young quota hounds.

Note: This was after the retirement at the same time of several superb officers who SERVED Coudersport for many years.

I hope this young man gets his justice on them. There actions are complete crap. And them getting beat again after begging for help at the hospital. It should have ended there. But I can see the women being affraid of the cops. Look what they did. Hope the cops don't treat there family like that. No control or composure what so ever. Horrific.Hope the cops get what they deserve.

Hey "Clown", you a State Trooper?
This is clearly Police brutality.
IF and I said, IF the poor guy did spit, he was probably spitting out blood and teeth, by the sound of the whole thing.
These are BAD cops and you can hear the hatred and anger in the one cops voice. He needs to seek anger managemnet and locked in an insane asslymn. Horrible, just horrible. Hope they are kicked off the force and run out of the country.

I believe that not all State Troopers are corrupt, but know for a fact that many get off on the power they have over people. Family members are too intimidated by the "System" to speak up, for fear of what furthur injustice could be done to themselves or their family member(s). My involvement has been with McKean County and I believe there is corruption reaching up to certain Judges. Again, I am not saying all Judges, just cerain ones. Our whole system needs to be closely examined,and justice meted to those who have bent it for their own personal gain.

I agree that the people were wrong in what they did to him (Robert Leone).
But, not all of the Pa Troopers are like this. I haven't had many dealing with the Pa Troopers except a few from the Coudersport Barracks. They have always been kind and courteous.
A few set a bad example for the many. So do not let us forget the many and the jobs they do to help and support us.

These cops are about to get figuratively and literally raped in their near future. I cant wait to see justice served on all levels, and to everyone involved to allow this to occur. The police, the courthouse, the judge, the prosecutor and the hospital should all be indited for their crimes. Robert Leone better own the PA state police by the time this is all said and done.

Give me a break...this guy "Larry Hohol" is out to make a buck! Look at his website! He is trying to sell his book! And you will also see...he is a little less than honest claiming he is a retired "STATE" police, wrong! This is a sad situtation, however, you are only hearing ONE side of the story. As we all know, there are always 3 sides!

We see the cover up here in the Coudersport Barracks with this latest thing going on. It's not the first time they have made up reports to cover their asses. A good house cleaning from the top down at our local barracks is long past due.
And no I’ve not personally had a run in with any of the them, but have seen how they work in our courts and how some Judges go right a long with them.
Some of these Clowns in the Coudersport Barracks makes it hard for a good Trooper to do his job.
They’ve now been caught making false reports.

Would be a great pro bono for a lawyer. Leone should have his day in court. All the proof is there its a cover up for sure.

Anonymous said...

I am so tired of hearing poor this and poor that. Did he deserve the beating he took? Well that is open for interpretation and I am sure this case will and has wasted a lot of tax payer money, unfortunately. If the kid would have pulled over I am sure things would have been just fine. I don't want to hear that his bipolar condition prevented him from pulling his damn car over. If you are unfit to drive and obey the traffic laws then get these people out of the damn driver seat. Hell if I get pulled over and I don't have my glasses on I am in trouble. So WTF is the problem here??? By the time they got him pulled over the situation was so aggravated at that point the kid is lucky to be alive and he already lost any constitutional right at that point. In my opinion after the back up units arrived they should have just taken him out of commission PERMANANTLY. This whole case stinks and these watch dogs are a bunch of numbskulls. I say take them out to the middle of no where in the middle of the night and hand them a badge and tell them to enforce title 75 and 18. I’ll bet they would pee there pants and cry for their mommies. Better yet drop them off in the middle of Philadelphia and ask them same. They would get eaten alive! This is BS! It is hard enough for our law enforcement to do their jobs with all this touchy feely crap! I say, you break the law, you get your ass kicked!!!!

Some years ago, my husband, a senior citizen, was in a minor accident. He was at the front of a long line of traffic due to a road construction stop. Kid pulled in front of him to avoid having to wait for the oncoming traffic to pass. My husband had no time to stop. He was accused of speeding by two of the women standing near the scene (one of which I over-heard admit she never even saw the accident, but she was named as an eye-witness!) And anyone who knows my husband will tell you he is The World's Slowest Driver! The trooper sided with these "ladies" (it was well known they were drinking buddies of his) and he told me later that there was over 40 feet of skid marks on the road! I photographed the entire area the next morning. NO skid marks anywhere! Once we let him know he was caught in a lie, he backed off the trumped-up charges and we ended up winning a lawsuit against the spoiled, lost-his-license- several-times Perp (who was also in jeapordy of losing it again before the accident). The trooper was clearly attempting to save the kid the grief he deserved, and hang it on a elderly man. It all happened in front of the Northwoods, a bar located on Rte 6 in Coudersport. We found out soon after, that the trooper frequented the place and knew the Perp personally. Seems like Trooper Training needs to include courses in Ethics and Integrity.

Cops are nothing more then armed thugs who break the law more then your common thug then hide behind their profession, I lost respect for them years ago. They lie & bully. I hope the troopers in this incident get criminal charges also, then get a state sentence & put in general population. I don't break the law but if I was to be pulled over on a dark lonely road by a cop I'd keep going also till I found a place that was well lit & populated. Amazing what all these lil cams catch today. It'd be nice if the car makers added a cam to all new vehicles you'd see less cops doing their power trip!

I'm tired of hearing:

ALL THE COPS AREN'T BAD

Because that is crap.

I've sat in court to clear myself of charges that amounted to guilt by association. As a police officer sat across from me purgering himself to gain a bogus conviction to his belt.

UNTIL THEY ROOT OUT THE CORRUPTION IN THEIR OWN ORGANIZATION, THEY ARE ALL GUILTY OF THE INJUSTICES

Every cop assumes I'm some crazed maniac toting a gun when they pull me over.... I suppose I should be assuming the same thing about them.

Cops, do me a favor. If you ever need to "subdue" me, just put a bullet in my head and save me the favor.

ok, I commented before without watching the whole video.

Having watched it, all I can say is:

And what makes me depressed is, they will get away with this. After I just spent a day celebrating how great my country is.

If this is American, you can count me out from here on out.

I'll be damned if I do a goddamn thing any cop tells me to.


Many of you might not know this, the reason PA state police don't wear badges is because PA troopers are supposed to earn the respect of citizens through the professionalism of their actions.

Until they clean out their ranks, I hold not one iota of respect for ANY of them.

I can't believe all the bleeding hearts, spewing venom for the low lifes of the world. If this moron had stopped immediately, it would probably been misdemeanors and everyone goes home.

Same deal in Johnstpwn! A cop says stop - maybe, just maybe you ought to stop.

One can't expect too much from a county with criminal judges running it. So bad mouth the police and hope to God you never have a need for one's help!

Someone has taught these boys that there is a war going on out there and they are our soldiers.

Which is exactly what you tell your police if you want a police state.

In free societies, we separate our police from our military in every way, because once the lines are blurred all the police see are potential enemies, not free citizens.

8:54 I doubt you would get in trouble for not having your glasses on. It sounds like you are a current or former trooper and any laws you break will be pushed under the rug. However, I do hope you drive without your glasses and get disoriented and get pulled over, and the cops don't waste our taxpayer money and take you out of commission PERMANANTLY.

Statistics show when you meet a police officer you are:Six times more likely to be meeting a murderer,ten times more likely to be meeting a spouse abuser etc.Look it up!Remember those who feel they have a God given right to tell everyone else what to do,and then choose a profession where they can do just that.We need protection from those who would take advantage of a situation if there were no police(and perhaps from those who believe policing involves only violent response).The vast majority of us would not act any bit different if there were no police.

My guess those with a real case of the @zz for the cops, are most likely criminals, including the lawyers chasing the ambulance.

Hohol was hired by parents of the victim (?) to aid in their civil suit. Obviously his anticipated compensation from a large settlement and any editing by him of the Police CAM clips presented would NOT be intended to increase public support.(RIGHT)! ALL media presentations (including this one) are embellished for the benefit of the presenter. Look at all the media bias with the Trayvon Martin situation, not that a tragedy didn't occur. And yes I lean toward 2:46 opinion as to the majority of comments posted here.
The troopers did not handle themselves professionly during this stop and let their personal disgust of the events of the stop cloud their judgement and some of their responses. Their lack of respect for what they should have been doing and those contained by most of the comments above only illustrates the lack of moral decency within our society.

This is what the Police State looks like up close and personal. Assault and torture with touch of cover
up thrown in. Then the lemmings chime in and support it because they think they are in with the in crowd. It happens all too frequentlly. There is a subtle war on the American people and the screws are getting turned tighter and tighter, so slowly hardly anyone notices. It will get worse.

Yet some people are so brainwashed into thinking the state can do whatever it chooses, they condone criminal acts. They plead with themselves that there must another side of the story. In your wildest dreams, what could the other side be, which would make this ok in your mind? Count on them to “protect” me? From what? From who? You have been brainwashed into fear. Case law says they have no duty to protect. 9 out of 10 times 911 is for clean up.

Choose your side wisely and pray your daughter or son does not meet this gang of thugs on a dark and lonely road some night. Just my 2c.

There’s no point in anyone applying for the position of village idiot here—the position appears to be more than amply filled!! Once again the typical Potter County redneck mentality rears its ugly head. By HIS OWN ADMISSION Hohol was hired by Leone's parents, HE also stated that HE edited the video, and in my considered opinion, he's a media whore trying to promote his book by inciting drama with a case that occurred over two years ago in another county simply TO MAKE MONEY off of someone else's misfortune. He was being followed by a police car with lights and sirens going. He chose to ignore that. I’m certain the drivers’ manual indicates that’s a signal to pull over regardless if it’s you they’re trying to stop or just get around you. More officers began to follow and he still did not yield. Leone was driving sufficiently under the speed limit to cause a reasonable officer to assume he was under the influence of something AND a quick check of his tags would have provided the information that his license had just recently been restored after a DUI (but we are not told if it was alcohol or drug related). Leone claimed he couldn’t exit the vehicle through the driver’s side door as the police car was blocking it—the same door the officers extracted him from without moving said police cruiser…hmm…curiouser and curiouser. Yes, at least one Trooper had a foul mouth, possibly in part fueled by fear and adrenaline?? Granted, these officers MAY or MAY NOT have used undue force (we'll never know because we were not there and only saw the biasly edited version of the surveillance video. IF they are guilty, by all means punish them...but let’s not gather a lynch mob and incite a riot without ALL of the facts. Innocent until proven guilty BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT applies to ALL citizens--no matter what their occupation!! You scream about being profiled and stereotyped, yet seem to be the biggest perpetrators of that misguided behavior yourselves. When are you going to start thinking for yourselves and not believing every piece of media hype spoon fed to you by biased journalists on a daily basis? From the mindless drivel that comprises some of your replies, it appears as if more than a few of you would benefit from a boot hung up your collective asses.

Just think this man could have been your son, neighbor, someone you love.

I am happy to see at least one district judge can see through you. now if only andy watson would pull off the blinders.

Seems like the majority on here have commented in defense of the victim. The rest? Obviously cops or cops' family members. You can tell by the name calling they do and the their disrespect for their fellow man. Not all cops are bad but Potter County sure has it's share of them and it gives the good cops a bad name too. I wouldn't pull over for one at night for nothing (heck, I probably wouldn't pull over in the daytime) Just drive on to your local police station and turn yourself in. Doesn't matter if you didn't do anything wrong. Sure is a sad thing when you cannot even trust your local "friendly" policeman. Most of them come out of the police academy these days with a chip on their shoulder. Somebody needs to knock that chip off and give them some of their own treatment. They don't deserve respect.

All officers of the law are held to a "higher standard" which means that foul language for any reason is completely unacceptable. Regardless of the circumstance...some of these "officers" lowered themselves to a level of behavior that goes against the training they received. I believe also that this guy who is promoting this video is out to gain for himself only...he may have attended the 'Academy" for Act 120 Municipal Police officer's training, but so does every cop that gets hired...he was no trooper, probably just some small town flunky cop who didn't cut it and never got past writing parking tickets.

Anonymous said...

of course he's "one of the good ones" because he agrees with you. after all, isn't that what it always comes down to- if a cop lets you go or believes you when you lie or accepts your tired excuses he's "one of the good ones". if he just drives around and collects a paycheck along the way to a great pension without making any waves or getting in the way of your good time he's "one of the good ones".
but, just let him do his job and have it affect you or someone you care about and then you can throw him in the pile with the rest of the "power hungry, quota chasing, chip on shoulder, think their Gods, law breaking, no good sonsabitching cops".
what you see in the video is not good, its not fun to watch; its agonizing. for a moment though, pretend your a juror with no bias and you get to listen to everyone involved before you rush to a judgement. then, with benefit of having entertained all evidence (including Leones) with a litte effort you can make an informed decision. or, just continue to be lazy and let the narrator tell you how to think (like our local media does).
in the end i hope justice is done but in the meantime all the negativity serves no real purpose. now go back to hating.....

11:36 I would guess that there was no response from the Coudy barracks BECAUSE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN IN POTTER COUNTY
11:50 a District Judge can see through me? How do you figure since I'm not a cop or related to one? Nor did I in any way, shape, or form claim to be a genius....I simply refuse to have the proverbial wool pulled over my eyes. I did say if the troopers are guilty by all means punish them...just don't get all rialed up before you know all the facts. I didn't take "a side" in this...I just refused to draw a conclusion based on one man's word and admittedly edited video tape. If you had listened to Hohol, he never claimed to be a retired state trooper--he said he was a retired municipal cop who went through state police academy training for municipal officers. People are only hearing what they want to hear so they can place blame. Have at it ... cast the first stone...I dare you. One other thought before I take your suggestion and get out of this county...If the hospital was so alarmed by his physical state, blood pressure, etc...why didn't they keep him overnight for observation? On his subsequent trip, again, he was supposedly in worse shape but, again, not admitted. Upon his arrival at jail, they supposedly documented horrific injuries immediately so as not to be implicated themselves but no one returned him to the hospital?? All I'm saying is that there is obviously more to this story that what we're being told. Start demanding ALL the facts and don't let one person with his own agenda decide for you. As my grandmother would say, use your head for something other than a hat rack!!!

Leone filed his civil suit in March 2012 from prison after being convicted of four charges. He had abusive levels of the stimulant drug Adderall in his system during this arrest. The wounds to his face occurred after being taken to lockup after a trip to the hospital. The police took him back to the hospital a second time. There is a real good chance he hurt himself due to the drugs in his system. As stated by 3:31, One should know the WHOLE story, then proper action needs to be taken, if any.

It's not just the people here, it's the people in Towanda protesting and wanting these officers held accountable. I'm sure there's a unedited version of what happen that night. I'm guessing the one that is on youtube must be pretty accurate because nothing from any agency involved is disputing it. The officers used unnecessary force & beat this poor man to a pulp. Most cops are on power trips. Our local cops have not so clean records, DUI's, beating a ex wife, fired for abusing power out of their juristiction, one ex cop here is now on Megans Laws Site. Another ex cop was fired from Shinglehouse for using evidence (pot) to party with teens years ago. It's not big news or shocking that most distrust cops. Google Bad Cops, you'll find all kinds of things caught on video. If anything this should all cops on notice, they could be next! Do your job right or quit! I'm sick of paying your salary just so you can feed your ego!

Typical response from a Shill and a PR troll trying to misdirect and attack the messenger.

Trying to make you think the edited portion involved a wild suspect taking out 6 cops ninja style or the cops serving him ice cream and cake.


2 trips to the hospital, broken thugs hand, multiple tazing, probably Rhoided out behavior, jumping on the suspect from the roof of the car, bloodied mug shot, other cops standing around condoning it, bruises on his back no mirandizing that we can see, dozens of charges, falsified police reports under oath, not to mention the DA .
Yea, I’m sure there is another side to it, it’s called dismissal and criminal prosecution for abuse and torture. Save the progressive crap for your buddys. Real people know theres more to it but he deserved nothing like this.
The police have been militarized in mindset & John and Jane Q Public are the targets.

save your media bullshit watch the video of an innocent man getting beaten nearly to death for not pulling over for a bunch of thugs who have to hog tie him to kick his ass,brave tough men, and then have the balls to trump up charges on him.WTF and it also says that his b.a.c. was negative, but I guess that is determined by who reads it. For Gods sakes, the E.R.nurse would not testify for fear of her own well being. What more do you need to realize that state cops are out of control? I would like to hear Harrisburgs side of this but right now I think they are hiding under the sheets

"There is a real good chance he hurt himself due to the drugs in his system"

We should wait for the whole story, but you assess he may have done it to himself. We laugh at you.

trolls are so transparent at their damage control.

Go back and rewatch with your wife, maybe she could help find your moral anchor.

From CBS news -
"Leone is suing the State Police claiming he was physically beaten, Tased and verbally assaulted over the course of nine hours while in their custody, CBS affiliate WBNG reports.

Leone, 31, filed the lawsuit in March, saying he was subjected to hours of beatings and electrical shocks by Pennsylvania state troopers. A 37-minute video that was posted to YouTube claims to walk viewers through the alleged assault following Leone's March 2010 arrest along Route 6 in Bradford County, Pa."

Look for some good PR stunt to calm the native savages coming out of the PSP soon.

let him sue the shit out of the state. I would rather hand my tax dollars to him for what he was put through then a bunch of egotistical punks. if they think they were so justified in this crime maybe they could send the video to their moms for Christmas, I'm sure they would be so proud, probably show it to their bingo buddies

For you people saying you saw a edited video there is also one that is unedited and its just as bad. PSP need to pay for what they did and the da and all the idots involved

Heck; all they'll get is "charges that won't stick & then transfered out of the area"--- with NO lost pay!! They "think" they are "above the law" & they do what ever they want. (**most of them** anyways)
AND if they "only" watched --- they will lie thur their teeth for their fellow officers any day of the week.
And "NO" I never been in any trouble with the law at all. I've seen some things that the state police have done & then they get pissed & in ur face; if you state the truth!
I will never again show them any respect until they earn it. I'll follow their directions--- but will never *ever* trust or believe ANYTHING they say. They will lie to you while staring you straight to ur face.

Hey cop 3:58. Get a life! Sure you guys are going to stick up for each other. One of your buddies on that tape?
Take a look at the picture of the victim and then say, again, "he probably hurt himself". It would take a moron , like yourself, to believe that. Oh, I get it, That's not really him. It's an actor, hired by the victims family to portray him. Give me a break. You cops really think all others are dumb and blind, don't you?
WE'RE NOT and WE ARE WATCHING!!

this should go way further then psp, it should go all the way to the capitol building. and who ever said he might have done this to himself you are a meatwhistle.and as far as edited vs unedited the cop jumping off a car and landing both feet in the middle of his back speaks for itself,or the one (the brave one) who punched in the back of the head and charged him with assault when he was hog tied is all the evidence ANY d.a. should need to prosecute these outlaws. And try to keep in mind that these rocket scientists taped this with their own dash cams.go ahead and defend these thugs on whatever grounds you may, the public has voiced their opinion

If I were a cop, I think I'd be very nervous right now. Your all under a microscope now. Your credibility, is in question by a lot of people. Since DNA & cameras of all kinds came into our world your colors are truly shining. How many convicted people are released from prison everyday because of DNA? People that served years. INNOCENT PEOPLE. But, your evidence & the prosecutors made up story convinced jurors these people were guilty. Now we have cameras to record anything, they come in all sizes and their catching a lot of dirty deeds cops do. I even seen videos where cops try taking peoples cell phones right off the bat. What part of were fed up don't you understand? I suggest you seek professional help for your anger and rage issues. I also suggest you find a different job, as your not fit to work in this line of work. Our justice system is a mess from jail guards all the way up to the judges. I support and respect any person who brings these wrongs to the public eye. Keep up the good work. Sooner or later the cops will figure they work for us and they are no better then us.

We need to random drug test all officers for steriod & drug use use by a nutreal outside third party.

The rage and hatred by some officers for the american people is not tolerable anymore.

The psychological profile of hiring officers has changed from that of a servant to one who can be programmed with the mindset that everyone they meet is a potential life ending threat.
Which is why ex- military and military rejects are good.

We realize it’s not Mayberry RFD, but it’s not Thunderdome either....... at least not yet.

If Leone would have stopped his car this would be a different story. Play stupid games - win stupid prizes

Most peaple dont even kno that the police stopped the wrong car robert was not charged with any traffic violations and he was on legal prescription meds that probably explains why he did not stop. Events like this happens all the time to peaple of color this finally reached white america becuase peaple as a whole dont stand together when the police abuse their authority when police abuses anyone no matter of color everyone in America need to fight for Justice not just white for white black for black etc.
