How to stop a teen riot, use High frequency waves on the little darlings

Between 6 and 10 August 2011, several London boroughs and districts of cities and towns across England suffered widespread rioting, looting and arson where thousands took to the streets. The first night of rioting took place on 7 August 2011 after a protest in Tottenham, following the death of Mark Duggan, a local man from the area, who was shot dead by police on 4 August 2011.

The immediate spark for violence was when large numbers of police arrived to disperse the demonstration. Several violent clashes with police, along with the destruction of police vehicles, magistrates' court, a double-decker bus, many civilian homes and businesses, began gaining attention from the media. Overnight, looting took place in Tottenham Hale Retail Park and nearby Wood Green.

The following days saw similar scenes in other parts of London with the worst violence taking place in Hackney, Brixton, Chingford, Peckham, Enfield, Battersea, Croydon, Ealing and East HamThe government figures show 13% of those arrested were gang members.

The city centre in Oxford Circus was also attacked. Some 90% of those brought before the courts were male and about half were aged under 21. Only 5% were over the age of 40.13% of those arrested overall were gang members but in London the figure was 19%.
Three-quarters of all those who appeared in court had a previous conviction or caution. For adults the figure was 80% and for juveniles it was 62%.

One in eight of all the crimes committed in the riots were muggings, claiming 664 victims. More than 2,500 shops and businesses were victims of looters and vandals, and more than 230 homes were hit by burglars or vandals. Two-thirds of the young people in court were classed as having some form of special educational need, compared to 21% for the national average. Many people called for the government to urge the police to deploy anti-riot methods often used outside Britain, such as water cannon and baton rounds, the use of which has long been resisted by senior police commanders and politicians.
Only recently discovered that high frequency could be used to detect a persons age, as a person grows older their ability to hear higher frequencies diminishes with time. Taking this idea Howard stapleton realized that troublesome youths were loitering around a grocery store. Using test subjects he found the right noise level at the right frequency to  use as a harmless deterrent on anyone under the age of 25. The device is marketed as a safety and security tool for preventing youths from congregating in specific areas. As such, it is promoted to reduce anti-social behavior such as loitering, graffiti, vandalism, drug use, drug distribution, and violence
There are estimated to be 3,500 of the devices in use across the country.
The German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health stated in a report on The Mosquito, entitled "Use of ultrasonic noise channels not entirely safe": The results of the examination are now available. The auditors were not able to certify this device as completely safe. The risk to the target group of teenagers and young adults is relatively low. They can leave the area when they hear the sound. On the other hand small children and infants are especially at risk, due to lengthy exposure to the sound, because the adults themselves do not perceive the noise. Moreover, the ultrasound affects not only hearing. Disruption of the equilibrium senses, as well as other extra-aural effects are well known. With the sound levels that can be reached by the device, the onset of dizziness, headache, nausea and impairment is to be expected. This is not the limit of the total risks to safety and health.

The Mosquito has received support and endorsements from municipalities, school districts, property management companies, convenience stores and other organisations. In light of the london riots, the Mosquito could have been used to harmlessly dispersed unruly teenagers. loiterers and opportunists saw other gang members circling local businesses, and in a mass coordinated effort. Some would say by social network sights, created panic on the streets. Such large gatherings would be easily dispersed if large broadcasts was to be transmitted, and might have prevented the attacks. There is no doubt that there are a growing number of teenagers who start their criminal career loitering around corner shops and local business.
Though the solution may not be to use the Mosquito to cure the growing number of disillusioned teenagers who are out of work or poorly educated.  Although it is possible a harmless deterrent might prevent a large gathering which sparked the riots in London.
