Google Street View vows to come back when Windsor ‘looks its best’

Smile, Windsor. You’re not on camera anymore. 

Google Street View has agreed to stop camera crews from rolling through Windsor’s streets until mountains of flood debris have been cleared to avoid a repeat of the debacle that saw the tech giant snap pictures of garbage-strewn streets during the height of the 101-day CUPE strike. 

Mayor Drew Dilkens has asked the company to put the brakes on its specially-equipped photo car, which has recently been recording photos of the city’s streets, pocked by piles of flood-damaged goods following the flooding that hit more than 6,000 basements August 29.

“We don’t want those pictures up on Google and we certainly reached out to Google already and said would you mind pausing until we can collect the garbage and then come back and finish the job?” said Dilkens Tuesday.

Crime scene cleaning: Not a job for the faint-hearted – Borneo Bulletin

|     Goeran Gehlen     |

KASSEL, Germany (dpa) – There’s a distinct smell of death, and maggots are already crawling out from underneath the door. This is the kind of scene Sinisa Matokovic and his colleagues can face on any given day.

They are crime scene cleaners, venturing where few others will dare after the police have finished their work, and their services are much in demand in the German city of Kassel, where they are based. For property owners, they are a godsend, since many homes would be uninhabitable without their work.

Matokovic enjoys his job. “It’s full of variety,” says the 40-year-old. Carrying out the work is a question of mind over matter, he adds.

The company he works for, Tohr, employs a director of operations and five cleaners. Manager Dominik Kracheletz, a qualified funeral director, says the impetus for the business came from the customers. Whenever the undertaker came to collect

Cops open up on how the force deals with police shootings | Daily …

Police officers have revealed how the job ‘slowly eats us away’ in a searingly frank documentary about slain cops.

A SWAT officer says that he gets sent on ‘horrific calls every day’ like looking people in their eyes as they take their last breath .

The cop says he has to ‘bury it deep inside’ and, unable to speak to their families, cops are ‘just left to figure out how not to lose ourselves’.

Another officer who survived multiple stabbings, Thomas Marchese, 43, says that every day that they walk out the door, cops have to ‘make peace with the fact we might not make it back home’.

Marchese exclusively told the DailyMail.com how he used his experience to help ‘crack the shell’ of silence and persuade serving officers to speak to him for his documentary, ‘Fallen’.

Traumatised dad

 

AN elderly father was traumatised Sunday after he witnessed one of his sons shooting another son during a domestic dispute at their home on Delacree Road in St Andrew, while a third had to run to escape bullets after a gun was aimed at him.

Dave Coke, 42, a bus driver, was shot and killed by his 39-year-old brother, an accountant and a licensed firearm holder. He was later taken into police custody for questioning. A woman was allegedly shot and injured during the fracas.

According to investigators from the Hunts Bay Police Station, the incident occurred about 11:15 am.

The distraught father, Mervin Coke, was so weakened from his experience that he could not stand and had to sit outside the horrific crime scene on a chair.

“Mi couldn’t manage when mi see, mi couldn’t stan’ (stand) up,” said Coke, who said he felt like he was a going to faint after witnessing
