Unnecessary Measures 

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.
