Howard Stapleton and Robert Gough do not like children. Stapleton has developed and Gough has installed a device, which he calls the Mosquito, which emits a noise in a high register that most older adults have lost the ability to hear, but that young people can hear and find irritating. Their goal: drive teenagers away
. They probably also want to have their balls ripped off by neighborhood dogs and their bank accounts looted by noise pollution and nuisance lawsuits. Both of which they richly deserves.
I understand the problems of loitering kids (having been one myself), and appreciate that chasing them off or calling the cops is minimally effective, but this is bloody stupid. I also have very good hearing, and don't want to spend the rest of my life suffering external tinnitus in the name of chasing off kids.
