teen deterrant

Ever wonder how to keep certain customers out of a store? Some storefronts ooze a certain, as Dr. Evil says, "i-don't-know-what" that keeps unwanted customers away.

But loitering teens are being driven away from shops in London with a new device that emits a high-pitch sound that only people ages 12-22 are able to hear. The main purpose of the device is to prevent teens from storefront loitering. After these "mosquitoes" make their way across the pond and into malls, the lifestyles of kids under 15 will be forever altered.

Hmmmm.....that sounds like a really strange concept. Is that even legal?

It doesn't seem legal, does it? I'm sure in the U.S. it wouldn't be well-received. On the other hand, some shops like Journey, Forever 21, and other "younger" stores seem like they're trying to keep the old folks out by blasting rap music...
