In a pathetic approach to make a go for youths’ right in Europe, the President of LSU (the main student/youth organization in Sweden), Hanna, writes on her blog (in Swedish) (http://lsuordforande.blogspot.com/2008/05/smack-mosquito.html) how awful it is that the police get more possibilities to fight juvenile criminality. Recently, a new kind of a device has hit the market; it is called the “mosquito”. The Mosquito or the Mosquito alarm is an electronic device which emits high-frequency sounds, similar to the buzz of a mosquito. Because the ability to hear high frequencies deteriorates in humans with age the noise is most commonly audible to younger persons (approx. 13-25). 🙂 I think it is great we get more possibilities to fight of left-wing radicals occupying buildings or young rascals rioting. The device is marketed for use as a safety and security tool for preventing gang loitering which can often lead to graffiti, vandalism, and violence. It is apparently very popular in the UK mostly by shopkeepers and police authorities. It has been a total success and a savior for a lot of private shop entrepreneurs, because it has successfully reduced the number of teenagers steeling in their stores.
Who can be against that? Who can possibly have anything to complain about? I tell you who, “young” pundits like Hanna from LSU apparently and other people who think the year is 1968. They feel sorry for those who do bad and punish those who do good, taking away their protection. This tool can successfully protect a lot of innocent young civilians from other not-so-innocent bastards who are just there to cause trouble.
