This is an open letter to Pueblo County, Colorado Undersheriff Justin Hall, Sheriff Kirk Taylor, the San Isabel Electric Association (SIEA) and anyone else involved in the forced installation of smart meters.
Undersheriff Hall -
Please pass this along to Sheriff Kirk Taylor. You and he may be unaware SIEA is using your deputies, therefore taxpayer resources as their personal police force.
To whom it may concern at San Isabel Electric Association –
Here is a letter to the Pueblo Chieftain about your jack booted thuggery and intimidation on installing smart meters (digital eyes) with comments that follow. You are all out of line treating me and other customers as criminals and using threats and intimidation against us.
Letter to the Pueblo Chieftain:
Meter replacement by San Isabel Co-op
San Isabel Electric Association has been on a crusade to install digital smart meters that’s stretching the boundaries of ingress access for a utility.
I was surprised to find my gate open on private property with a new meter installed without prior notification and with no regard for signs that were posted stating; “smart meter not wanted.”
Approximately 22,000 meters have been installed in Pueblo West, Beulah, Rye/Colorado City, Custer County, Aguilar, Fremont County, Walsenburg, LaVeta, Cuchara and Trinidad. This is being done with little or no discussion with their members in regard to the effects on health, safety, privacy or data security issues. People who are vulnerable or suffer from electromagnetic sensitivity are not being considered or allowed to opt out. Members are being told if they don’t want the meter they will be disconnected from service. Does this sound like a co-op? Health studies done by outside health organizations have so far been discounted by SIEA for their long-term effects on human beings.
SIEA will tell you that their industry groups concluded in tests that electromagnetic fields or radio frequencies emissions are well within safety guidelines. But are they? They will tell you that members will somehow save energy and money. Many have seen their bills skyrocket. SIEA will tell you that these meters are no worse than a cellphone or computer router. But are they?
Educate yourself for your own family. Ask yourself and SIEA why they are so adamant in forcing these utility revenue collection transmitters? Is this a marketing gimmick created by corporations to sell junk meters made in foreign countries that suck up taxpayer/ratepayer dollars?
SIEA is not governed by the Public Utilities Commission, they are governed by seven board representatives, and that includes someone in your district. SIEA’s phone number is 800-279-7432.
How would you like it if you were pushed around and were minding your own business?
It is not just me who is furious with the way your employees treated me and called the cops and pushed me around on my own property. Here are comments by others who are angry with you.
The SWAT Team will force their way in and hold you at gun-point if you don’t comply. True stuff. Happened to a good friend.
Even questioning an SIEA employee about the smart meter (digital eyes) when they come to install it will get you a hoard of deputies at your house or business.
SIEA has apparently assigned thug employees who must border on psychopathic disorder to push customers around and force the installation of meters like a bunch of jack booted brown shirts.
Shame on the sheriffs in the counties where SIEA operates for allowing their deputies to be used by SIEA as strong arms to violate basic citizens rights.
There is ample anecdotal evidence this is occurring with high frequency. Why have so many folded without challenging SIEA? Why won’t SIEA give an opt-out option instead of bullying and telling citizens they will be arrested for obstruction and disorderly conduct among other charges AND their electricity will be permanently disconnected without any chance of ever being reconnected?
It is not radio frequency waves that should worry us. The argument has no validity and SIEA is attacking that argument while ignoring the real danger. It is the loss of privacy and personal control over energy usage.
Smart meters can read right down to the milliwatt and build a “smart” data base on each customer. It will determine exactly what is being used at any time. The next step, already happening in Boulder, is to use the smart meter technology to control smart appliances and smart thermostats.
The final goal is rationing of electricity through what is known as multiple tiered rate charges and remote control of loads by load shedding and duty cycling.
It is coming. Instead of meeting demand with ample supply of any goods or services, particularly energy, the new leftist/progressive/socialist/marxist model is to ration and control our access to those goods and services. Rationing is control whether it be energy, healthcare, food and water. That is the model of power and control as it has been throughout history.
SIEA has become an agent of the government. It is all about power and control. You are the enemy, not a friend of individual freedom and privacy rights. I am a vietnam army combat infantry veteran. I am an old man now, 68 years old. No one has ever treated me the way I was treated the day your thugs came to my house to install the meter. All you have done is harden me to fight against you and preserve my dignity and the freedom of my family.
I have sent a copy of this to the Pueblo County Sheriff. He may not know what you are doing using their department as your personal security force and thugs. He will now.
