The latest weapon in the War Against Gangerster Activity in Washington State appears to be Classical Music?
TACOMA, Wash. -- Believing gangs and Mozart don't mix, city police and Pierce Transit officials are mounting a classical attack on a growing problem of street gangs at bus stops.
This week speakers are being installed to transmit classical music from KING FM radio of Seattle at the Tacoma Mall Transit Center, a tactic designed to reduce the number of young hooligans who deal or buy drugs at the bus stop or use public transportation as an easy way to circulate between the mall and other trouble-prone places.
If the orderly strains of Bach, Brahms and Beethoven succeed in reducing disorder at the mall, speakers tuned to KING FM may be installed at more bus stops, said Rod Baker, the transit agency's chief of public safety.
It is admittedly much better than some of their other ideas
The alternative is removing covered bus stops that attract drug dealers and loiterers, a stop already taken at some bus stops near the mall, he said.
So hard working honest citizens who depend on public transport get to stand in the rain because of the problems associated with gang members loitering at bus stops.
It probably is beyond expectations for any of these brilliant public leaders to think of having the police handle this problem?
Foolish question! There is one scary aspect to this whole picture. If the 2008 Election goes truly sour, we might wake up to Breaking News such as
