Haydn to Hidin' = Close enough for bad puns.
Enough of this pickiness - I'm hungry for something smooth and sweet.

We all get the headline, but don't be bashing people for being reluctant to speed the spread of ignorance, because believe us, there is already plenty to be had.

Go read the headline again. Subby was using Haydn in place of hatin', not hidin'.

Perhaps it was intentional; many people don't know the difference.

Once the music stops the drug dealers will be back in 5 minuets.

The dealers responded by either throwing a few rocks or going away?

Because no sociopath criminals like classical music.
 
2014-05-21 09:10:16 AM  
Naturally, drug dealers and criminals must be uncultured to the point classical music burns them like holy water (note to HOA: OMG, try holy water!). The only logical response to them hearing music is to hiss and scurry away, clutching their illicit wares lest their precious drugs wither to ash as well before the righteous onslaught of noise ordinance violations.

Utterly impossible that they like it, or think that it lends sophistication and lets them pass off their crack as high-class stuff. Or that they DGAF at all.
 
2014-05-21 09:13:47 AM  
My neighborhood was a haven for drugs, but in one of the remarkable examples of a turnaround engineering by social programs, we got the dealers to adopt urban farming instead.  Now there's some buyer's remorse because the neighborhood has turned into a Beethoven.

University of Pittsburgh campus police did a similar thing in the 90s. They set up PA speakers on one of their station houses which was across the street from the O and near a nuisance bar and would play classical from 1-3am. Worked like a charm.

For those of you that love composer puns, this video with Danny Kaye and Louis Armstrong is a must-see.

I have this on a 45 somewhere.  Trust me this is 36 flavors of awesome.  Not only is it wildly clever lyrically, it swings.

It's kind of a sad world for me when classical music is used as a deterrent.
 
2014-05-21 09:48:21 AM  
This was an ingenious solution, Mozart that creative. I hope this action doesn't keep the drug dealers up and night and unable to have relations with their girlfriends, because then the next time they saw a woman, they might Muhler.

I guess this metjod is better than just telling them to leave, like they were a dog or squirrel.  I can't imagine that the drug dealers would respond to someone just yell 'Shumann'

The klan of white trash dealers across the street from me aren't deterred by music...

Any other suggestions? The police are well aware of them, but won't do anything. I'm thinking of putting up a ton of neighborhood watch signs, in front of their house only.

Place a bunch of these (preferbly mounted to public property so it is not tied to you) pointed at the house and the street

Or even better, buy a large amount of the same drug they are selling, and undercut their market until they have to make a big score with a more dangerous supplier, but secretly have a deal with that supplier to doublecross them.
