Outrage: German Government Says Noisy Kids Not Noise Pollution!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The German government on Wednesday made it more difficult to file complaints about the sound of children playing in residential areas by altering noise pollution laws.


In a move designed to shut down a debate which has reached fever pitch recently, the cabinet backed a measure to clamp down on noise complaints near day care centres and playgrounds.

The clarification is designed to prevent residents from feeling that they have grounds for legal action due to the noise created by loud children.

`We are setting a clear legislative signal for a child-friendly society with this law giving privileged status to children`s noise,` said Environment Minister Norbert Röttgen."

I`d rather live next to a serial killer, as long as he is quiet, than nex to a family with young children.

It`s impossible to co-exist with brats, they scream and yell for no apparent reason. If you tell the little tyrants to stop yelling, their parents who pushed their miserable monsters into the streets so they can enjoy some peace, will call you every name in the book.

Kids shouldn`t be allowed to play in the streets unless they are fitted with muzzles. Hannibal Lecter and dangerous dogs are required to wear a muzzle, why not noisy brats?

A child-friendly society means a nightmare for adults. Children don`t have an inalienable right to scream, it`s foolish for a government to protect these noisy devils.

Germany may have a problem with an ageing society, but they should remember that kids don`t vote, but adults go to the polls.
