Oregon cops hope classical music deters loiterers


    The TriMet light rail stop at 162nd Avenue is shown Wednesday, March 30, 2011, in Portland, Ore. Since November, at this light rail stop the regional transit department has approved the playing of classical music in an effort to ward off the kind of crimes that happen when people just hang around. A bill making its way through the Oregon Legislature would expand the program to all light rail stops in Clackamas, Washington and Multnomah counties deemed high-crime areas by police or residents.
