Arrest Video



This is the video that caused such a stir this year because Massachusetts State Police threatened Leominster mom Mary Jean with prosecution if she didn't remove it from her site, www.conte2006.com. Captured by a crib monitor, it shows the State Police arresting Paul Pechonis and then swarming through his home even though they didn't have a search warrant. Ms. Jean won an injunction against the police in Federal Court allowing her to keep the tape on her site but Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly is now appealing that injunction.


Police Officers often look to see if there is a video camera. The tape can be confiscated to be destroyed and the camera operator may face a beating.
