Utilities sending legal docs to release them from liability from smart meter technology!

The legal document, below, is very telling.  What do the utilities have to worry about if the technology of which they deem to be safe and healthy?  The utilities know they cannot make those claims in writing, or they would be perjuring themselves.

The utilities are sending these legal documents to customers who have sent  to them a demand letter to remove the smart meters (preferably the demand letter Jerry Day offers for free at http://www.freedomtaker.com)  A removal of any and all meters relying on radio frequency transmitting and receiving to read meters. This includes water, gas and electric.

Do not be bullied or discouraged by their lies, deflections and misinformation.  Do not deal with lower level management.  Do not waste your time talking to anyone other than the top brass and legal department.  The lower level management is trained to say there is nothing they can do.  Do not believe them. Send Jerry Day’s letter certified to the utility you are dealing with and to your regulatory agency.  This will be entered into public record.  Anything else will keep you in circles; designed to frustrate and wear you down, so that eventually you just give up. Please, do not give up.  Important to remember:  DO NOT allow them to put you on the defensive.  Ignore their lies. You don’t have to prove anything to them, the underlings.  State your demands, stick to them and in those demands ask the utilities to provide in writing studies, documentation that the technology they are using for the smart metering is 100% safe and healthy.  They will not be able to do this!!…..Sandaura
