I'M ALL FOR less noise, but this seems a tad excessive:
A group of neighbors who said they were "tortured" by booming music and other noise from a Barcelona pub may finally get some shut-eye after a court sentenced the owner to more than five years in prison.
Couldn't they simply had issued a court order and, when the bar owner didn't comply, slap him with contempt? Five years for the noise itself seems too much, no?
