(NaturalNews) The rule of law has completely gone out the window in the Chicago, Illinois, suburb of Naperville, where two mothers were recently arrested for trying to stop utility workers and local police from illegally trespassing on their private property in order to install cancer-causing "smart" meters. As voiced by anti-smart meter activists during a recent city council meeting following the arrests, the city of Naperville blatantly violated its own ordinances by not only having the women arrested, but also by trespassing on their private property without consent.

For several years, Jennifer Stahl, Malia "Kim" Bendis, and a cohort of other local residents informed about the dangers of remotely-controlled smart meters have been working to block efforts by the city to forcibly install the devices on all residents' homes throughout the area. Smart meters, which are controlled by wireless access points, emit large amounts of electromagnetic radiation, and have been linked to causing severe headaches, heart palpitations, anxiety, and even cancer, not to mention a plethora of personal privacy violations.

But the group, known as Naperville Smart Meter Awareness (NSMA), saw its efforts come to a head when both Stahl and Bendis were arrested at their own homes, in front of their families, for refusing to allow the local electric utility, which is owned and operated by the city of Naperville, to install the devices on their houses. Stahl, Bendis, and various other NSMA volunteers had already been harassed by local officials for refusing the devices prior to the arrests, but when it finally came down to installing the devices on a second and third attempt, local police got involved to ensure compliance.

"It's not acceptable that the city can choose for me on my behalf to install this meter that I don't think is appropriate for myself," explained Stahl, as the issue was escalating, to reporters. "I choose to keep my analog meter because of all the issues (with smart meters). I can't believe the city is not providing an alternative option."

Be sure to check out all the video footage captured by NSMA of the city of Naperville forcibly installing smart meters against the will of the people:

At a later meeting with Naperville's corrupt city council (http://www.naperville.il.us/council.aspx) following the arrests, Tom Glass, an NSMA leader, basically read the riot act, drawing attention to the completely illegal and unconstitutional breaking and entering of private property that took place under the watch of Naperville Mayor A. George Pradel. Glass explains how the city violated its own laws by handling the matter the way it did, and that such treatment is completely unacceptable.

"This has little to do with smart meters now," explained Glass to The Blaze about this issue. "This is about an overbearing government."

Texas woman brandishes firearm to 'shoo' smart meter installation drone off her property

Meanwhile, a Houston, Texas-area woman took advantage of her Second Amendment rights when worker drones from her local utility tried to forcibly install a smart meter on her home in Harris County, physically assaulting her in the process. Thelma Taormina reportedly brandished a firearm in response, which prompted the previously unrelenting utility worker to quickly vacate her property.

"Our Constitution allows us not to have that kind of intrusion on our personal privacy," explained Thelma to KHOU 11 News in Houston. "They will be able to tell if you're running your computer, your air conditioner, whatever it is -- they all put off different signal signatures," added Thelma's husband Nick about smart meters in general.
