Court Recruits Mozart to deter trouble

Well, I'm sure that you know that Mozarts 252nd birthday was last Sunday and I hope you celebrated appropriately! Mozart's music is possibly the most popular classical music in the world, but did you know it is also being used to deter crime?? A reported for the Sacramento Bee, Christina Jewett, wrote recently that several locations in Sacramenta are blasting a Mozart violin concerto through loudspeakers when they see cars in their parking lots with people just sitting there, loitering and possibly "looking for trouble." Store managers say that when they crank up the classical music, the hoodlums quickly leave! What do YOU think of that kind of strategy?
