Two young mothers in Naperville, Illinois, were arrested last week for refusing to allow utility workers on their property to install controversial “smart meters” and also for video recording the activities of the utility workers and police.
So called “smart meters” have been under controversy for several reasons. They allow the utility company to surmise the comings asnd goings of the residents, and they can limit the heating and cooling of the residence.
Naperville area residents have been fighting the installation of smart meters for two years, according to Breitbart.com.
The first video depicts utility workers and a police officer arriving at the residence of Jennifer Stahl, the homeowner, to install the new meter. Both Stahl and Malia “Kim” Bendis, the videographer, were arrested, Bendis, for recording the police during the incident.
According to Breitbart.com, “a recent federal court ruling that the state of Illinois’s ban on recording police officers in the line of duty was ‘unconstitutional.’ The U.S. Supreme Court upheld that ruling in November.”
This second video is of newsreel footage from Chicago affiliate CBS channel 2:
