Sonic blaster is silenced to protect yob rights

#2
Yesterday the Newport Community Safety Partnership, which was set up by the local authority and the police, ordered the shop to switch off the Mosquito until human rights and health and safety issues have been “fully resolved”.
Now all we need is something to drive these bstards away!

If the sonic blaster is not good enough, maybe a claymore would be more sufficeient.

This is daft. If they didn't want to hear the sound they shouldn't go where they are not allowed. It is that simple.

FFS human rights, what a load of old bull. The fluffy jumper wearing loonies that dream all this crap up need shooting. Then we need to force feed their bodies to the bottom feeding leeches that feed off this crap - the Lawyers. Theres too much money in this kind of trivial rubbish and it perpetuates it to the point of ludicrousy - I mean, do we really think that these spotty little feckers have the nounce and ability to get this kind of thing doen themselves - NO. Some 'adult' or other is helping them and getting paid handsomely at the same time - prolly out of our tax monies in the name of 'public defence' or some such carp.........

Winds me right up - if you shouldn't be there, stay away then your loittle lugg'oles wont bleed you cretins.............

As much as I would like to agree the problem here is not the "yoofs" hanging around it is the possible effect on innocent passersby that is causing the trouble.

Some young kid on a bike is cycling past, hears the noise and causes an accident in the traffic. Who gets the bill?

Young baby parked in pram outside the shop while mum goes inside to shop. Kid goes deaf/mental due to the noise.

Among other possible scenarios.

Cyclists are exposed to sudden, loud and unexpected noises all the time - it's called traffic. I can't see that brief passing exposure to the sonic blaster is going to be any more distracting.

Personally, I'd question the sanity/responsibility of any mother leaving her child in a pram outside a shop which has a problem with yobs congregating near it.

I never said they were sane. But in the "It must be someones fault. Gimme loads a money" culture in the UK the people who might end up paying (with your tax money btw) have to think about this type of thing.

I hate to point out the obvious (actually, I quite enjoy it :D ), but why is the age set at 20?

Are we saying that all people under 20 are yobs and that everyone over 20 is a model citizen?

Seems a bit pump to me.

Anyone over 20 is stone deaf! Or possibly tone deaf which is why pop music is aimed at teens?

Or they are tone deaf listening to the pop music aimed at teens!!!:D

Apparently its designed to kick in after around 10-15 mins so there is enough time for someone to walk in, browse and buy but not loiter

I have to listen to Rap sh*t being played loudly! so does that infringe my human rights?

Listened to an interview with the guy who invented this the other day on the World Service. It seems you don’t hear it for the first 10 minutes or so then your ears are able to detect the sound and it gets irritating, causing the youths to move away. Sounds like a great invention to me.

No --- but what about when Mum stops for a gossip outside the shop with the baby in the pram? I feel little sympathy for proper yobs causing trouble but this device affects other too and that's not right. I don't care how the device is stopped whether its the Human Rights Act or just that plain old principle that everyone is allowed to walk up the Queen's highway.
