Man Records His Own Unlawful Arrest on Hidden Sunglasses Camera

The last time he did so, the arrest was [__caught on a hidden camera__](http://www.kspr.com/news/local/kfsm-news-nwa-hidden-camera-benton-county-arrest,0,1493981.story) in the arrestee’s sunglasses.

The incident occurred November 22 when Benton County deputy Dana Winn was questioning John Lewis outside his home about a man who used to live there wanted on a felony warrant.

Lewis, who doesn’t trust cops, has various cameras hidden around his home, including a small camera inside his sunglasses.

Lewis told Winn the man he was looking for didn’t live there anymore. Lewis kept his answers short and abrupt, which infuriated Winn.

> Winn responded, “I’ve been nothing but cordial with you and you’re being a jackass.” Winn went on to say, “I will come back here every day until I find out, I’ll bang on your door until something happens.”
> Deputy Winn also got frustrated with Lewis because he wouldn’t address him with the proper title. Lewis kept calling Winn “Mr.” and “Officer.”
> “It’s not officer it’s deputy I don’t work for the city I work for the county, you have a problem with that we’ll discuss it down at the jail,” said Winn.
> Winn asked to search the home but was denied because he didn’t have a search warrant. Lewis was arrested a short time later for obstructing government operations.
> “You hesitated on your answers, which leads me to believe you know more than you’re telling me,” said Winn.

So essentially he was obstructing government operations when he refused to allow a cop without a warrant to search his home?

Lewis is threatening to sue if the charges are not dropped. He should sue anyway.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
