She did what??

Okay I picked this up on the News yesterday.

Scavenging OAP Crashes Georgia's Internet.

As a Techie I have to ask things like how?  Most systems have more than a single point of failure.  It looks like Georgia doesn't.  The other thing is why wasn't the cable a lot deeper underground?  Or are we talking about two guys who just ran the cable along the ground, like we used the cups and string method to talk as kids.

Really does she deserve any jail time? No, you should jail the company who put the cable in.

I'm wondering if to find the fault they just followed the cable till they found the woman trying to spool it up.
