Soundings: ‘hoodies’ sound off!

The Guardian recently ran an article about the use of a ‘Mosquito’ device to tackle the problems with groups of teanagers congregating in groups ‘moth-like’ around light sources in city centres and causing disruption (http://society.guardian.co.uk/youthjustice/story/0,,2036140,00.html).  Interesting that more euphonic solutions have been provided in other locations (http://www.freenewmexican.com/artsfeatures/10701.html).

Even the Australian Institute of Criminology recommends that “..one can design public places in a manner likely to discourage unruly gatherings as youths are less likely to gather in any location in which classical music is audible.”  Maybe there is a case for ‘Hit me with your Rhythm Stick….officer!’
