He asserts that there is an order out there to have the New York police kill him, and that he is in fear that he order is real.
For those who would consider this melodramatic and would like to have a "ha-ha" moment, consider these four deaths,
consider the timeline of New York activist's events - from his filming the police to his mysterious death:
March 2015 - videotaped a police stop, police was upset
May 2015 - videotaped the police stop for "flipping the bird", was charged and peppersprayed, charges dismissed, resulted in a $50,000 settlement and firing of a police officer
September of 2015 - police took his drone for videotaping them
October 2015 - arrested for flying and crashing another drone into the state police headquarters' building, charges dismissed in mid-March of 2016
End of March 2016 - arrested for sexual abuse of a minor, endangering welfare of a minor
March 29, 2016 - bailed out, bailed out his girlfriend, fled the country allegedly to Canada after seeing his house searched by "men in black",
April 3, 2016 - turned up dead in Mexico together with his young girlfriend (36 and 26 years old, respectively), with a drug in their system, even though the wife says he does not use drugs.
Both had the same side effect, at the same time.
Both died of that same alleged side effect.
And consider the "ha-ha" moments in social media comments about Adam Rupeka's concern for his life when fleeing from the country. Even his attempt to cover his track and divert his and his girlfriend's pursuers by posting a YouTube video that they are heading North, towards Canada, did not save them from their deaths within days - in Mexico.
One of the "ha-has" was like that, by the way:
So, he was definitely driven out because he was filming "hard working police officers doing their jobs".
And, to set the record straight, he only filmed the cops, the harassment (pepper-spraying, beating him up, illegally arresting him and fabricating criminal charges, which were dismissed - before another set of criminal charges was fabricated) - went the other way.
And, note the date of this one:
That was April 1, 2016.
Less than a week later, he was found dead - in Mexico.
So, I will err on the side of the benefit of the doubt on this one and believe that Leon's fear is real. Let's hope that nothing happens to him.
