Rite Aids are blasting Barry Manilow tunes to deter vagrants
NY Post

If it's really jus a question of deterring vagrants, why not something public domain such as Vivaldi?

Are they playing:

Or
"Somewhere down the road" ?

Surely this is a human rights violation.

The UN commission on human rights should get involved.

No. Nothing so heinous so pedestrian, so lubricious...

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I've read an article about businesses protecting alleys & storage areas from, as Abdul puts it, vagrants with a stinky product (so attacking smell rather than hearing). The exact reference escapes me, but you can buy it in some hardware stores and it should be analogous to the Israeli Skunk™:
The Product

Police departments the world over periodically face an acute dilemma in confrontations with violent civil unrest: the need for effective riot control and the duty to preserve the health and safety of all, including the protesters themselves. Conventional tactics - from physical force all the way to tear gas and water cannons - have proven either ineffective, potentially lethal, or both.

Odortec, supported by a police R&D unit, developed the perfect, if highly pungent, solution: The Skunk.

There Are No Countermeasures

A non-lethal, completely non-toxic liquid spray, the Skunk is the most innovative and effective riot control method available. And there simply are no countermeasures.

This harmless deterrent consists of an extremely foul-smelling liquid, with the viscosity of water, that can be sprayed over a large area using a standard water cannon. The overpowering odor of the Skunk drives rioters away - and keeps them away - effectively shutting down any escalating situation.

Currently in regular use by law enforcement agencies, the Skunk has been field tested and proven to disperse even the most determined of violent protests.

The Most Demanding Standards

The Skunk was designed in consultation with the Israeli police to meet the most demanding operational requirements and the highest ethical standards.
Of course the article was about the usual good souls protesting the "inhuman treatment", &c.
