A New Detterent to Crime: Mozart

I've never thought of using Classical Music to prevent crime, but apparently some stores in England think it is quite a good idea. They have been trying to think of ways to keep the loitering youth away from their stores and thereby prevent crime.

Their solution: they pipe classical music around the store. It seems that the troublesome youngsters don't appreciate the music of Mozart, Brahms and Bach and are taking their crime elsewhere.

Storekeepers say they have yet to experiment with different types of music to discover what works the best, but think that the result are quite promising.
