Woman Arrested While Refusing Smart Meter Installation on Her Property Tells Us Her Story
Jennifer Stahl has been a strong advocate against the smart meter program in Naperville, Ill., for the last two years. The issue came to a head Wednesday afternoon when she was arrested while refusing to let the utility workers install the controversial device.

Stahl was at a friend’s house when she received the call from her husband that the utility workers had arrived. She was home within 15 minutes and saw they were at a neighbor’s house. Her neighbors were not home, but they had signs stating they did not permit the new meter to be installed.

The lock on Stahl’s fence was cut, and when Stahl wouldn’t step away from the meter, she was lead away by an officer, cuffed and waited for a marked squad car to arrive to take her to the department. When asked why she was being arrested, she was told it was for interfering with a police officer.

 Quoting: Mordier L'eft

The police are completely wrong here - this is a CIVIL matter.

CIVIL - NOT CRIMINAL!

A cop took a position in a civil disagreement - which is, by definnition, completely outside of his authority - and then threatened this women at gunpoint to submit to the other side in this civil disagreement, and then arrested her for refusing his demands in the matter! It's a complete rape of the law! If the power company didn't like it, they needed to sue her for breach of contract and get a court order.

This is just as outrageous as if you agreed to mow my lawn, did so, and I said it wasn't good enough, refused to pay you, and called a cop - and then the cop arrested you for "interfering with a police officer" when you insisted you be paid.

And not only did the cop do this, he did it with his sergeant's guidance and instruction! WTF! The police department and city should be sued, as well as the sergeant and cop in their personal capacities, for ZERO authority and GROSS abuse of power in this situation.

This is nuts!
