the silence of sound

Tokyo police come up with a novel solution to troublesome youths after dark in public places: blast them with high-pitched noises only young people can hear.

It's like annoy-a-teen, but over an entire public park for 5 hours a night. With ingenuity like this, it's no wonder that Tokyo is the most crime-free city this side of Riyadh... and they don't even have to cut off robbers' hands to do it!

However, note to self: Ambassador At Large, despite approaching his 27th birthday, retains excellent hearing and would probably be bothered to all hell by this tactic.
