    Default Sonic Teenager Deterrent - a new weapon

    Britain has new weapon against loitering youths -- Sonic Teenager Deterrent
    Feb 15 8:38 AM US/Eastern

    Shopkeepers in central England have been trying out a new device that emits an uncomfortable high-pitched noise designed to disperse young loiterers outside their stores without bothering adults.

    Police carrying out the pilot project in Staffordshire say some of those who have tested the "Sonic Teenager Deterrent," nicknamed the mosquito, have talked of buying one of their own.


    The device which costs 622 pounds (908 euros, 1,081 dollars) "doesn't cause any pain to the hearer," according to Inspector Amanda Davies, quoted by Britain's domestic Press Association news agency.

    "The noise can normally only be heard by those between 12 and 22 and it makes the listener feel uncomfortable," she added.

    Once in their early 20s, people lose their capacity to hear sounds at such a high pitch.

    "It is controlled by the shopkeepers. If they can see through their window that there is a problem, they turn the device on for a few minutes until the group has dispersed," Davies said.

    "Shop owners have reported fabulous results and we've been approached by some who are considering buying their own equipment," she said.

    My guess would be something like Back Street Boys, Munudo or Culture Club. I know I would dispearse.
