    Kill that noise or I'll kill you!

    People often complain that loud noise drives them crazy. But in Britain, it is driving people to violence.
    A London man could no longer stand the reggae music from a party next door. He set fire to the hallway outside the party. A woman trying to escape jumped out of a window from the third floor and killed herself. The London man received a life sentence for murder.
    A man from Wales went to complain about a loud music from a neighbour's home. He was stabbed by the neighbour.
    A man in Winchester, because of a constantly barking dog, hit his neighbour with an iron bar. The dog's owner fell, hit his head on the road and died four days later.
    A Manchester man fired an air rifle into a nearby flat from which loud music was playing. The judge refused to send the man to jail for his action and fined him £5,000 instead.
