If the excessive noise continues beyond the ten-day period, the complaining party can provide the Department with some evidence of the continuing excessive noise. With evidence to support the complaint we can re-contact the responsible person and issue an administrative citation that results in a fine that must be paid within 14 days. The first offense has a civil penalty of $100. If the responsible party fails to correct the noise each complaint may result in additional administrative citations with penalties increasing on a progressive scale to $500 for each occurrence.
It wasn't until after the book was published that I began to inquire into the history of attitudes toward photographs of the dead. It seemed to vary wildly according to national cultures, but in the United States alone perception seemed to have shifted several times. I recalled that, when I was a child, my father would never bring the New York Daily News home from work, and it turned out that this was because through the 1960s the paper regularly published gruesome photographs of crime scenes. They stopped the practice in the following decade, and although Rupert Murdoch revived it when he purchased the News's rival, the Post, in the late '70s, with full-page photographs illustrating such headlines as RUBOUT! and MOMENT OF DEATH, this only lasted a few years. And then there was the vexed history of the formal postmortem photograph. Photographs of the dead in their beds or their coffins had once been common, especially for small-town photographers, especially those whose clientele was sufficiently poor that the subjects of such photographs may never have been photographed in life, so that this represented the last chance to obtain a likeness. In the United States the practice began to die out in the 1920s, although in some parts of Europe they were still being taken as late as the 1960s. According to the researches of the collector and historian Stanley Burns, however, the United States was alone in having experienced a mass revulsion toward those pictures, perhaps beginning around the time the practice ceased, the 1920s; in many families the pictures were burned. This wave of changing attitudes perhaps followed the trend in facilities for the disposal of corpses. The 1920s, of course, was also the decade when the dead ceased to be laid out in their own homes and were henceforth unilaterally consigned to undertakers, who soon became known as "morticians," and then as "funeral directors." It occurred to me that my attitude toward death may have been affected by the fact that I grew up in Belgium, where funeral parlors became the norm much more recently. I had as a seven-year-old seen my grandmother laid out in the parlor of our home for three days, and had paid my respects to her remains every day before I headed off to school. Other countries certainly did differ from the U.S., as I further appreciated when I visited Mexico and made the acquaintance of that country's crime tabloids, in particular Alarma!, which regularly publishes photographs that I myself have often found insupportably repulsive. And then friends brought back from Brazil broadsheet newspapers which routinely featured graphic pictures of dead drug dealers on their front pages. In the wake of my book, though, the U.S. seemed to be trying to make up for lost time. One book after another appeared, which were often made up of pictures from the private collections of retired policemen, and which appeared to vie for the title of "punk gift book of the year," sparing the viewer nothing. Fashion photographers soon appropriated the look of the pictures in my book--some of them told me as much. And the picures themselves, the rights to which I do not control, turned up in all sorts of places--on the sleeves of records by purveyors of industrial music, for example.
Back when I was researching the circumstances of the photographs, trying to trace the occurrences pictured on the basis of fragmentary captions, I naturally inquired as to the holdings of the Police Department. It was hard to extract any information from the cops, but I eventually learned that two sets of copy negatives had been made from the recovered glass plates: one set had gone to the Municipal Archives and the other to the NYPD. According to department spokespersons, the department either did not possess those negatives at all. Actually they held them in embargo, fearing that making them available would invade the privacy of the descendants of those pictured--this, of course, despite the fact that an identical set was readily available to the public a mere three blocks away. I was slightly apprehensive for a while, half-expecting a letter from some distraught grandchild, but none ever came. When I probed my residual unease a bit more, I discovered that my confused twinges of guilt had very little to do with any putative survivors--the pictures had after all been taken between 1914 and 1918, and any grandchildren would themselves be rather advanced in age. Rather, my feelings of responsibility were directed toward the very dead subjects themselves, and had less to do with their depiction as victims of violent death than with the indignity to which they were posthumously subjected. I imagined myself, garroted by a crackhead on that stretch of Attorney Street which at the time featured vacant lots on both sides, being photographed by an impassive Police Academy graduate, his mind occupied by hockey scores and point spreads. Then I imagined being photographed with my clothes laid open and my dick hanging out. Could it make a difference to me, once I was dead?
Good morning Ejnar!Well, to make things easier, think of it this way, every single mountain I went in 2012 was with leukemia, since the first symptoms appeared in Dec2011.That wasn't so bad, the secont part of the TR named "Bad Blood doesn't help much" was the first time I surrendered to the disease, and months later I did something even harder, very, very difficult for someone with leukemia, now modified to acute leukemia, The Sierra Fina Traverse, 38kms of a demanding trekking, and reaching the summit of 7 mountains. Bleeding too much at every minute, leaving a trail of blood through the whole traverse, and still managed to complete it in time and measure a mountain. Of course, I paid a high price for it, it took me around 40 days to heal all my wounds, which would be healed in three or four days with the health of a normal person...But, as Flavio said to me, "you got stronger each day we left behind".That is an interesting read too...Look for "Peak bagging in Sierra Fina Brazilian grand slam" (in two parts). I should never do it the way I was...but...what can I say?About the female, probably died of the wounds a couple weeks after that...who knows...too bad, she was a nice dog. love dogs, me and Tacio.Thanks for the kind comment!CheersPaulo
