If you were to look at all the ranked games you would find that the numbers agree with the statement that every team has about the same chance to have a leaver on it. The problem you are seeing is that you are not taking every game ever played into account, just your own.
I do agree with you that this is a problem. At one point I lost 20 games in a row (not ranked luckily) because every game I played had a leaver on my team. After the 20th game I started seeing leavers on the other team. Unless you queue with a team made up of people you know and trust you must rely on luck to pair you with people who are similarly skilled (the matchmaking system isn't so good on this).
Before people rage I will explain why the matchmaking system is not so good. In a lot of games I have to tell people how to play, when to get dragon, baron, push towers, how to gank, and I even have to tell AD carries to last hit so the lane doesn't push to the tower. Since I am level 30 I play against and with level 30s. I don't mind giving people advice, but when the enemy team is doing everything without having to have someone take on the role of a teacher the system is not working that well. If the system was working well I would be paired with teammates who did not need me to teach them to play the game. This could also be my fault because at one point, like most other people, I was bad at the game. I lost a few games or have had the bad luck of losing several games in a row to leavers, afks, and trolls.
I feel like I am always being punished for something I can't do anything about.
I wouldn't view it as punishment. Life is not fair and to want life to be fair is a waste of your time and energy. There are games that you cannot win or are not meant to win. You just have to accept it and move on.
I do think that there should be a system for good players, however. If you are polite, helpful, and friendly in game you get "reported" for being a good player, having good sportsmanship, etc. This flags you in the system (somehow) to be put with other people who have a similar attitude as you do. The people you are paired might still be idiotic, but at least they will be nice idiots.
