    Code Enforcement Challenge: Residents Claim Neighbors Bombarding Them With Radiation

    Residents Claim Neighbors Bombarding Them With Radiation

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A home in Sacramento's south Natomas neighborhood is surrounded by sheet metal, and neighbors are calling it an eyesore.

    The D'Souza family lives in the home on Timberwood Court, and claims the aluminium pieces are necessary to protect them from unknown neighbors who have been bombarding them with radio waves and making them sick.

    "(It's) a shield to protect against radiation, because microwave radiation is reflected off of aluminium, so it's a protective measure," resident Sarah D'Souza said.

    The D'Souzas said the bombardment began after the first anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and that the radio waves have caused them health problems ranging from headaches to lupus.....
    Posted because this crowd could really understand the unique challenged faced by the code enforcement officers in this case. It would be interesting to see if the radiation levels are elevated. Those are easily measured. Well, unless we're talking gamma rays, leptons, and top spin charmed quarks

    Sacramento Code Enforcement officials have gotten involved and ordered the family to remove the metal by Monday or face a misdemeanor citation.

    The D'Souzas said they will comply with the order and remove the sheet metal, but they also plan to gather evidence to show city officials what they believe is a problem with radiation.
    I'll be really interested to see what proof the D'Souzas show.

    Thankfully, they seem to be the cooperative types.

    OK sounds like they need padded rooms not metal ones
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    You scoff, oh ye of little knowledge! There is FAR MORE to this case than you realize! The first question the Code Enforcement Officer has to answer is:

    Which of the neighbors (if not ALL of them) are allied with the Greys? Or, this sounds more like the work of the Draconians, perhaps.

    I would insist that all the neighbors submit themselves to a level-one x-ray screening.

    Also: do any of the neighbors' homes provide access to the subterranian caverns used by the Greys and Draconians for communications and logistics? Inquiring minds would like to know!

    But, we KNOW this will not happen, because the Sacramento Police Department is COOPERATING with the Greys and Draconians. The D'Souza family deserves to be congratulated for their patriotic battle against THEM.

    I wonder if Mr. D'Souza wears a tin-foil hat whenever he cuts the grass.

    Isn't it a little strange that the whole family appears to have the same delusion?

    Well, if it hadnít have been for the damn black helicopters making themselves so conspicuous they wouldnít have ever known. Iíll have to make sure our code enforcement officers donít make the same mistake.
