Letter from Jerry Day

On How to Refuse a “Smart” Meter

Jerry Day posts the following letter on jerryday.com for anyone who chooses to refuse installation of a “smart” meter on their residence or property. He suggests that you consult your attorney to tailor the letter to your specifications, then send your revised version to your utility company’s CEO or president by certified mail.

Keep copies of your letter and your certified mail receipt.

If anyone attempts to install a transmitting meter on your residence, show them the copy of your letter and proof of its delivery (your certified mail receipt). Tell them that installing a transmitting meter on your residence will thereby be a criminal trespass. If they attempt this, you will call the police, request that the installer be taken into custody, and file a criminal complaint with the police.

If the company responds to your letter in writing, Jerry Day suggests that you write back. Remind them that they have not proven that they may lawfully install any radiation-emitting surveillance device on your residence.

Dear (CEO’s Name) and All Agents, Officers, Employees, Contractors and
Interested Parties:

In regard to your possible intention to install a “smart” or other digital utility meter at the above address, those meters violate the law. They cause endangerment to people in their vicinity due to the following factors:

1. They individually identify electrical devices and record when they are
operated, causing invasion of privacy.

2. They monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of rights and
domestic privacy.

3. They transmit wireless signals that are interceptable by unauthorized and
distant parties.

4. No power company or other individual agency has consent to conduct
surveillance or monitoring or to emit radiation (EMR) on our property or
residence with a digital meter.

5. Those with access to the data can review a permanent history of
household activities taken and viewed unlawfully and without the consent
of occupants and subjects of the surveillance.

6. Those databases may be shared with, or fall into the hands of,
unauthorized law enforcement, private hackers of wireless transmissions
and other unidentified parties for use against the interests of the energy
subscribers and the occupants of the structures.

7. “Smart” meters are, by definition, surveillance devices that violate federal
and state wiretapping laws by recording and storing databases of private
and personal activities and behaviors recorded without the consent or
knowledge of those people who are monitored.

8. It is possible, for example, with analysis of certain “smart” meter data, for
unauthorized and distant parties to determine medical conditions, sexual
activities, vacancy patterns, general affluence, trade secrets and physical
locations of occupants.

9. By intentional transmission and/or incidental disruption of house current,
digital meters emit cancer-causing electromagnetic radiation, which
violates laws against public endangerment, assault and commission of
bodily harm.

10.Digital meters are designed to transmit using electromagnetic radiation
known to cause cancer and many other diseases, illnesses and symptoms.

For the above reasons, and by right of occupancy and property ownership, I prohibit, and deny consent of, any installation and use of any monitoring, eavesdropping, surveillance and radiation emitting devices on my property and place of residence, especially in the form of a digital, transmitting utility meter.

Any attempt to install any such device directed at me or other occupants on my property or place of residence will constitute trespass, stalking, wiretapping and assault, all prohibited and punishable by law through criminal and civil actions. All persons, government agencies and private organizations responsible for installing or operating monitoring devices that I consider unlawful will be fully liable for major financial and compliance claims and demands in excess of one million dollars.

This is legal notice. The liabilities and obligations listed above are true and binding upon all parties upon delivery of this notice. These terms and conditions apply without regard to status or existence of any “opt-out” contract.

Under my authority as owner and/or occupant of the above property, and under your implied or expressed application to enter that property, this is an adhesion contract to which you are now bound until and unless you respond with factual rebuttal in a sworn statement by an authorized and identified party within 21 days of this delivery. Any rebuttal must show your authority to install an unlawful radiation-emitting surveillance device (digital electric “meter”) on my property without my consent. Expect rebuttal to any such claim. Any failure to timely show and prove full and binding authority to install the unlawful and harmful device on my property and/or place of occupancy will be an agreement with all terms and conditions herein. I/we deny and refuse any past, present and future proposal, offer, demand or claim contrary to any terms or conditions herein.

Notice to principle is notice to agent, and notice to agent is notice to principal.

Note: If a utility company has already installed a transmitting meter on your residence and you want it removed, first find out if the company allows an opt-out. If they do, simply go through the proper channels for having it removed and replaced with a mechanical meter. If opt-outs are not available in your area, Jerry Day offers a letter that demands removal at www.freedomtaker.com.
