"NAPERVILLE WOMAN FACES DOWN SMART POWER METERS
Activist Group Raises Concerns About Privacy, Security And Health...
A mother of three who buys organic food and worries about the dangers of 'dirty electricity' has become the face of resistance in Naperville.
Led away in handcuffs after trying to prevent the installation of a 'smart meter' on her home, Jennifer Stahl vows to continue the protest movement that has made this suburban community ground zero in a battle over privacy rights versus modern technology.
'This is unreasonable search and seizure,' said Stahl, 40, who believes the devices designed to monitor power use are intrusive and pose a health risk. 'It definitely is not OK for my utility...to know when I'm home and not home.'
The arrests of Stahl and another prominent opponent, Malia 'Kim' Bendis, 40, only heightened tensions between city officials and members of Naperville Smart Meter Awareness, a group of residents who started to organize nearly two years ago. The group now numbers about 75 volunteers, Stahl said.
