A New York State Police investigator came by on 10/17 for an informational visit. He came in response to “several people in Albany…[who] expressed concern” following our widely-read Herkimer child trafficking series. It seemed our backgrounds had been verified beforehand. We appear to have been deemed credible and our postings plausible. We were shabbily dressed and well-spoken. (We’ll discuss that meeting and its implications in a later posting.)
We had a lengthy conversation about Herkimer child trafficking, ongoing poison gas attacks, the presence of regional and national gangs and their local members, and state and Herkimer Village policing. The investigator left with the information he needed for Albany. We were left with the certainty that the only authentic law enforcement in Herkimer is Federal.
Of keen interest to Albany was a Herkimer child trafficking update. We hadn’t posted any child trafficking material since April. (Busy adding cameras and staving off the poison gas attacks triggered by our postings.)
Had things changed? we were asked. Yes.
Kids Gone. Stanley Sykes Moved Out. His Gang Traffics On
All child trafficking within the view of our cameras faded following the publication of our child trafficking series. Stanley Sykes vacated his 341 Eureka Avenue rental in mid-May.
Herkimer Child Trafficking Hub Now Bustling Drug Hub
The Sykes gang was quick to convert the child trafficking hub to a bustling drug trafficking hub. They’d always trafficked drugs from there, but have really stepped up the pace since Stanley Sykes relocated. All their activities have become open and often brazen as they reassert dominance. They want us, and through us, you, to know they’re not afraid of cameras, social media, law enforcement. They pay. They’re protected. “In your face. We own this place.” is their message.
Here’s a recent typical day’s drug trafficking out of that grubby lot, sped up a bit to capture the frenetic pace:
Stanley Sykes has been heard to say he paid 10k for the rights to traffic out of that location. Seems those rights are still respected.
Herkimer gang’s message: “In your face. We own this place!”
Where Is Stanley Sykes? What Is He Doing?
Stanley hasn’t gone far. He’s often at at his old address on Eureka Avenue. Here he is the other day, hosting his gang for a smoke filled autumn evening of cracked-out good times at the gang’s trafficking hub:
In 28 days over September through October, our Herkimer crime content had over 114,000 combined views on herkimerpost.com and our YouTube channel. Most readers and viewers were drawn to our Herkimer child trafficking posts and videos. The posts were first published in April, and widely ignored by the Herkimer community. (Except for the gangs, which stepped up their poison gas attacks on us and our home.)
Facebook Features Herkimer Child Trafficking Posts
Then on September 17th, Facebook began featuring our Herkimer child trafficking posts. We had 11,598 views of our blog that day. This is unusual for us.
Visitors began with our child trafficking posts, and then often read of other Herkimer crime events. Thanks to the support of Facebook, Our September – October 11th blog views totaled over 75,000. Most of our readers were from North America, but people from another 98 countries read about and watched Herkimer child trafficking and other crimes.
75,534 Herkimer Post Content Views – 9.1.18 – 10.11.18
Herkimer Post Top Posts – 30 Days Ending 10.12.18
Our Herkimer child trafficking posts drew 61,604 views out of approximately 75,000 views. The Stanley Sykes gang (child trafficking, drugs, poisonings, assaults) featured in most of those posts. Herkimer’s Joyce Barton gang (drugs, poisonings, assaults) was a distant second at 4,296 views.
38,560 Herkimer Post YouTube Views – 28 Days – 9/13/18-10/10/18
The Herkimer Post’s YouTube channel features videos supporting our argument that Herkimer’s a major transcontinental child trafficking hub. These were taken by our home security cameras over a period of several years. Many who read our blog postings followed the links to our videos. Those videos had 38,560 views in the 28 days from 9.13.18 to 10.10.18.
Herkimer Post Most Watched Videos – 28 Days – 9/13/18-10/10/18
Of those 38,560 YouTube views, 31,264 were of 12 of our 106 videos. Those 12 were all child trafficking videos. They were viewed 31,264 times. All but two featured the Stanley Sykes gang.
Thank You, Facebook
A big thank you to Facebook for helping us widely expose Herkimer’s booming child trafficking economy. The trafficking gangs here have made a few transparent changes since we first published our child trafficking posts in the Spring. But they’re still firmly entrenched in Herkimer–a topic for subsequent posts.
Herkimer As Child Trafficking Hub – Not Unique
It’s estimated that approximately 300,000 kids are year are sex trafficked in the US. That requires an extensive transportation network and thousands of workers. There are probably many child trafficking hubs like Herkimer across the US and the world. We just happened to move to this one.
We set out to establish that the Barton’s aged truck, used to gas us with volatilized pesticides, was modified to serve as a poisoning platform. Linda Kaidan performed this complex investigation. (Video below.)
Kaidan approached the Bartons’ truck–parked across the street from us in their driveway, and photographed it from the public sidewalk in front of their home. This was 3 months after she was beaten by the Barton gang’s Shianne Hill for standing on the same spot. Here is a Kaidan’s report:
Linda Kaidan’s Report of Poison Spraying by the Numbers
After feeling the searing burn of chemicals on my face for too many mornings, on 9/16/17, I finally took the initiative to look under the Barton truck parked across the street at their 333 Pleasant Avenue house. Here’s what I found.
On the driver’s side a long cylinder with a 50% cut out on the 180 degrees facing the street is apparent.
This cylinder may be an integral part of a spraying mechanism.
A electrical connection dangles from the rear.
On the driver’s side a similar cylinder with intact electrical connection can be seen.
Pesticide is typically dispensed by electrically volatizing it into a fine mist, rapidly dispensed under pressure in high volume over a wide area. The device is called a fogger.
The Barton gang’s truck appears to support both right, left and rear dispensing of a volatilized chemical.
There was no pesticide tank the day the photo was taken. The Bartons, apparently fearing increased official scrutiny, have had allies spraying us recently. But the necessary apparatus is still on the truck. I (Berry) recently watched as Joyce Barton sat in the truck cab, controlling the mechanism with a hand unit as she parked in front of our house. An invisible blast of pesticide mist hit the front of our house and me.
There are many of these vehicles in Herkimer. They been known to convoy past our house, spraying. Herkimer’s criminals dislike our cameras and coverage of their activities.
Her colleague is probably Ben Dennis, a recent Penn State grad who’s interned at CNN and CBS News. His Animal Control outfit is appropriate for a visit to the Joyce Barton gang’s turf; on a drug-fueled romp, the gang’s crazier than a sack of rats. (Apologies if we got the names wrong. Our cameras aren’t as good as yours. )
It seems likely the news team’s visit was inspired by our widely viewed coverage of the Barton gang’s 5/18 assault on herkimerpost.com editor Linda Kaidan. Despite being warned that she’d be beaten if she crossed the street from her home to the Barton gang’s 333 Pleasant Avenue, side, she did so. And was beaten.
Like Kaidan, Pavlovsky stepped onto Joyce Barton’s public sidewalk, camera rolling. Kaidan’s assailant Shianne Hill, on a year’s probation for her cowardly assault, was present on the porch but did not attack Pavolvsky. Of course, there was an Animal Control officer present.
The WUTR news team then plunged down the driveway between the Barton’s and a neighboring house. (Never been down there–“Here Lie Dragons.” There’s a smaller house at the base of the driveway.) They emerged unscathed, presumably after interviewing a few folks, then left.
A Heartening Visit
We were very heartened by the WUTR news team’s visit –we’ve been under siege for four years with not a word support from the Herkimer community. We hope WUTR’s interest in Herkimer’s entrenched criminal community and it’s depraved lawlessness continues. Our criminal neighbors don’t do well in sunlight.
(Conversation overheard later that day from the Barton’s side of the street: “How come you guys hit an old lady?” “We didn’t know she was that old.”)
Poison Gas Attacks Ramp Up after Reporters Visit
This is the 17th month of poison attacks on us. Following Shianne Hill’s arrest in May, attacks dropped off to an occasional sniping driveby or backyard spraying from the direction of Eureka Avenue. But they’ve ramped up again, following the broadcast journalists’ filming of Barton gang and their Pleasant Avenue lair.
Prime spraying time is now the morning when we’re out or in our front yard. We often return to find our driveway filled with pesticide, and get hit with it from drivebys if we linger out front. Chemical foggers dispensing volatized pesticide from beneath passing vehicles remain the weapon of choice. The Barton ‘s ancient pickup still seems the primary delivery vehicle, with backup from one or two allied vehicles. (How does that heap get an inspection sticker every year?)
Our lessening problems aside, it’s obvious that Herkimer and the entire Mohawk Valley are undergoing a rapid sea change of rising prosperity, fueled by climate change relocation and the resulting booming real estate sales. Prosperity dooms criminals like the Barton gang. They feed off of others poverty and desperation. Solid reporting and robust social media exposure will speed their end.
Hill apparently agreed with her foster mother Joyce Barton’s assertion to Herkimer police the day of the assault that Kaidan was trespassing by standing on the public sidewalk in front of the Barton’s house, and that her attack constituted self-defense.
Only after further consultation with her public defender and Joyce Barton did Hill reluctantly enter a guilty plea. She was sentenced to a year’s probation.
Order of Protection Extended
Hill had previously been served with an Order of Protection enjoining her from approaching Kaidan. Magistrate Thomas DeCarlo extended the Order of Protection to two years. Hill lives with the Bartons at 333 Pleasant Avenue, across from Kaidan’s home.
We would like to thank the Herkimer Police, notably Sgt Bowman and the officers who responded to the assault on 5/18–they diligently followed through to secure statements and evidence.
As far as we know, this is the first ever arrest of one of the extended family members who comprise the Joyce Barton gang, which long terrorized Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. We hope to see more of the same.
We’d also like to acknowledged the support of the Herkimer County District Attorney’s Office, especially Victim’s Services Coordinator Connie M. Stowell, and the excellent staff of the Little Falls Hospital Emergency Room.
Curtis Cool – Man on the Run?
While in court for Shianne Hill’s last appearance, a familiar name was called: Curtis Cool, a longtime associate of Joyce Barton. He failed to enter an appearance. We assume a bench warrant will issue for Curtis. Readers of this blog may recall Curtis’ hugely popular criminal harassment antics from when he was our neighbor. Happily, his old rental at 328 Pleasant Avenue was sold for a good price last month. We wish the new owners well.
In a June 6th appearance in Herkimer Village Court before Magistrate Robert L. DeCarlo, Shianne Hill pleaded Not Guilty to 3rd Degree Assault. Hill, 18, a recent Herkimer High graduate, was charged in the unprovoked May 18th attack on 63 year-old Herkimer blogger Linda Kaidan, who owns the house across the street from Joyce Bartons’ 333 Pleasant Avenue. Kaidan is a retired IBM and Oracle Corp. software developer.
Kaidan was challenging Joyce Barton’s gang-turf assertion that the public sidewalk in front of 333 Pleasant Avenue is hers. Prior to crossing the street, Kaidan was warned on camera by a Barton family member to stay in her house, or else…
Hill was represented by her public defender and accompanied by her mentor Joyce Barton, of Herkimer’s Barton Gang, which has long dominated Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. Hill lived with the Bartons for many years. Shianne Hill is but one of several former innocents we’ve seen Joyce Barton sadistically destroy under a false flag of concerned nurturing and friendship.
Hill was neatly groomed and soft-spoken. Her public defender noted that Hill has no prior record. The case was continued until June 27 at 1600, when an assistant district attorney will be present.
Shianne Hill’s SSI-Qualifying Disability Not Obvious
Hill’s unspecified disability didn’t appeared to handicap her as she stalked and attacked her elderly neighbor. (Video below) Kaidan sustained a concussion, facial laceration and aggravation of her spinal osteoporosis, per hospital reports. Her hands were at her side when Hill punched her. Kaidan’s glasses were knocked from her face during the attack and stolen.
YouTube Age-Restricts “Violent and Graphic” Videos of Shianne Hill’s Attack
Because of the violent and graphic nature of Shianne Hill’s craven assault, YouTube initially age-restricted videos of the attack, which to date have had about 2,500 views on our popular Herkimer Crime channel. YouTube said in an email to us that though the videos of Hill’s attack don’t violate their community standards, they’re not something they want kids and teens viewing. We disagreed, but YouTube is Google and will have its way.
(Note: 6/13: YouTube has dropped the age-restriction on the main video, but retained it on the shorter one. An appeal is pending.)
Here’s the main video:
Linda Kaidan is still recovering from the assault. We’ll be reporting on Shianne Hill’s case as it progresses.
Sykes and his putative wife Becky replaced Little Mama in 341 Eureka Avenue, with daughter-in-law Carrie Ann Bass living in 334 Pleasant Avenue. They’re till still there. Their houses anchor both ends of the child trafficking lot. As with trafficker Little Mama before them, they rent from Herkimer landlord Jay Smith.
Stanley Sykes Mission in Herkimer’s Premier Child Trafficking Spot
From his activities over the last 18 months, Sykes and his gang have a two-fold mission: emptying our house of us and making a go of their own child exploitation activities. Before his allies told him to shut it, Stanley had bragged about the $10k bonus he’d receive for getting rid of us. Despite four years of harassment and many poison gas attacks, we’re still here. The location of our house astride the child trafficking lot makes it a must-have as the area’s next criminal controlled house. Just see the map below.
The silent torrent of trafficked kids through that parking lot was rerouted when Little Mama moved on. Sykes has tried to monetize the location, even paying a franchise fee for the privilege, or so he’s loudly declared.
Child trafficking’s much safer and can be more profitable for criminals than selling even heroin, which is what Stanley Sykes’s son was allegedly arrested for here–that and complicity in the death of one of his users. It seems to us that Stanley’s given many years of loyal service to Mohawk Valley gangs as an on-call thug, and is looking to finally make his fortune in the dark world of low-risk, high-profit child exploitation.
Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes Tries the Child Exploitation Market
With the exception of a few vital cameras, we don’t hover over our camera feeds. But if we see something odd or alarming, we pull the clips and have a look. From those videos, it seems Sykes and his crew are trying to supplement their drug trafficking income with child exploitation. Here’s what we have for videos to date. We probably missed most of it, but the clips lend some insight into what he’s tried.
Trafficked teens who introduced themselves as Justin and Larry, exit the back of Stanley Sykes’s 341 Eureka Avenue. They followed dog Bear and I to pat Bear.
Conversations with trafficked kids are rare and brief, says the Ark of Hope for Children. Things to look for are little or no schooling, evasiveness as to where they live and responses that aren’t age-appropriate. See what you think: our full exchange is described on YouTube.
Never saw Larry and Justin again. And I’ve been watching.
Kids Drift In and Out Like Smoke Along Pleasant Avenue – Herkimer’s Distributed Child Trafficking
The little blonde girl was apparently stashed at Joyce Barton’s house (across the street, off camera) for a week weeks. then vanished.
Major child trafficking networks have the resources to do volume–lot’s of kids, lots of transfer points and final destinations.
The child trafficking wannabees like the regional Herkimer gangs don’t have the same resources as major league traffickers they cooperate with. The locals are dependent upon trafficking kids one or a few at a time, whom they distributed among members’ houses.
Newly Trafficked Herkimer Kids Here Today, Then Gone
They may be here for weeks, or only seen once. We’ve seen them pass through 328 Pleasant Avenue (Curtis Cool), 333 Pleasant Avenue (Joyce Barton), 334 Pleasant Avenue (Sykes gang–Carrie Ann Bass), and Stanley Sykes’s 341 Eureka Avenue. Some of the supposedly vacant houses behind ours, on Eureka Avenue will sometimes have kids for a few days, then the kids vanish and the houses stay empty for a while.
It’s likely that kids held at traffickers’ houses for a longer time are in greater need of grooming, which the Canadian Global News defines as“…win[ning] a child’s trust and co-operation, which decreases the chances of them telling anyone about the abuse.”
The little blonde girl in the above video was stashed at Joyce Barton’s 333 Pleasant Avenue for several weeks, then vanished. She was a frequent visitor to the Sykes’ gang’s 334 Pleasant Avenue, presided over by Carrie Ann Bass. Most kids who are passed through we either don’t notice or miss recording. We only noticed her because the Sykes gang had chosen that day to rampage Pleasant Avenue, in farewell to Stanley Sykes’s heroin-dealing son, then out on bail.
Of the blonde girl’s only friends, the boy in the blue shirt, Harvey, is a Sykes gang family member. We never saw the other girls again.
What A Well-Groomed Trafficked Child Looks Like
Publishing the clips of the little blonde girl and her friends, we mentioned that she and they may have been trafficked. Suddenly all unknown kids at the Sykes’ gang locations sprouted winter jackets with hoods up–notably on warm days. Of course, it only marked them as potentially trafficked.
You wouldn’t notice anything wrong, looking at this sweet clip of mother and child, unless you were looking for signs of child sexual exploitation and trafficking. Just a mom arriving a friend’s house with her kid, then later taking her sleepy boy home. But in our 4 years on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue, we’ve seen many signs of drug use by our murderous band of neighbors to manipulate and control children. Kids to them are but weapons or a cash crop. Any interaction between adults and kids merits always merits a closer look:
1409 hrs – Man, woman and boy arrive by truck at Sykes gang’s 334 Pleasant Avenue, a drug and child trafficking transmit point presided over by Carrie Ann Bass
1409 – Woman and boy enter house. Man waits in car
1428 – Semiconscious boy is carried from 334 by woman; met by man.
1429 – Semiconscious boy secured in truck. Truck drives off – 20 minutes from wide awake and walking to semiconscious and carried.
We suspect the boy was given one of the pre – anesthetic drugs used as date rape drugs, such as rohypnol or ketamine. Given the flow of drugs into and out of Herkimer and the Sykes gang’s obvious trafficking of them out of 334 Pleasant Avenue, either drug could have been easily obtained. The drugs act quickly, which is why they’re used at parties and clubs. They make a child more cooperative in an exploitation situation.
We’ve never seen two more shame-faced people as the young couple in the video above. The camera doesn’t do their guilt-wracked faces justice. The woman took that kid into Sykes’ and the couple fled. Never saw them again; never saw the boy again.
Anything’s possible once you come to the horrific conclusion that you live among a murderous band of depraved drug and child traffickers. They traffic heroin and kids, pimp out their own children and try to kill neighbors they can’t drive off. (See our poison gas attacks videos.)
Such heinous filth will have a way to dispose of dead kids who’ve inconvenienced them. Herkimer has several human crematoria, one pet crematory, three major waterways, and the forests of the Southern Adirondacks just to the north.
At any one time, 300,000 children are being trafficked in the United States. Many of them go missing.
Trafficked Kids Being Slipped into Sykes Gang’s 334 Pleasant Avenue
4/8/17 Trafficked teens being slipped into Herkimer’s traditional child trafficking transit point in the dead of night. It’s the parking lot spanning 334 Pleasant Avenue and 341 Pleasant Avenue. Both are controlled by Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes’ gang, long-time tenants of Herkimer landlord Jay Smith.
Trafficked children may be quickly be forwarded to their final destinations in some major metropolitan area, there to be broken in as captive slaves. [The]…average life span of a [child trafficked for sex] is…7 years, found dead from attack, abuse, HIV and other STD’s, malnutrition, overdose or suicide,”reports the Ark of Hope for Children.
Trafficked Herkimer Kids We Don’t See
Ours is one of the last houses around that ghastly parking area either not vacant or not controlled by Herkimer’s regional gangs. We probably only pick up on about 10% of neighboring child trafficking, our cameras being positioned to protect our place, and the traffickers trying to keep off camera.
For more about Herkimer’s trafficked kids, the criminals who profit from them and the seeming millions of dirty dollars produced by this heinous industry in our pastoral village, see our other child trafficking posts.
“Herkimer’s dirty and likes it that way.”
For the price we’ve paid to find and present this Herkimer child trafficking data, follow this link to our blog’s Poisoning section. This is our 14th month of poison gas attacks. As I type, the evening gas attacks on our house have begun. (To be fair, Stanley Sykes did offer us $1,500 for our home.)
Our troubles are small compared to the fate of the thousands of children trafficked through unseeing Herkimer. As a former federal agent I know said, “Herkimer’s dirty and likes it that way.”
Herkimer gas attacks have resumed here on Pleasant Avenue and are blossoming with Spring. Having failed to drive us from our house and been only moderately successful in poisoning us in our beds over the last year, our murderous band of neighbors are trying to deny us our backyard.
When we’re out back for more than a few minutes, a poisonous insecticide rolls in. It’s odorless, colorless, its familiar symptoms those of pyrethrim: tongue and lip numbness, drooling, lethargy, itching, short term memory loss, muscle tremors, respiratory problems. The gas quickly disperses, but the symptoms linger for hours. It comes from the direction of King Street.
Assuming its misted from the west of our yard by an easily-concealed handfogger, the pesticide is dispensed toward us from within the circle on the map. The smaller, easily hidden pesticide foggers have a coverage area of 5,000 square feet, according to the handfogger directions. We’re easily in range from any part of that red circle.
Surrounded by Sykes Gang and A Spreading Plague of Vacant Houses
The gas creeps in when we’re out of line of sight of the neighboring yards. This requires spotters–that would be the Sykes gang, long comfortably nested in landlord Jay Smith properties on the other side of us. (See map.) The two houses to S. Sykes left and the one to his right are vacant. (The guys in 332 Pleasant work during the day.) Indeed, over time there’s been a creeping plague of vacant houses overlooking or near the Sykes gang’s domain. This is symptomatic of a ruthless and depraved criminal enterprise expanding it’s turf. Were the houses’ occupants gassed, or did they just think it healthier to move?
Looking at the gassing map (below), the immediate reason for poisoning us is obvious: our house and its cameras look right down the throat of the Stanley Sykes gang’s empire of dirt surrounding the parking lot. (They frequently complain they’ve paid for the right to traffic there and that we need to be gone and they’ll soon see us on our way.)
March 2018 Gassing Attacks
3/30/18 1200 hrs. Warm day. Gassed in backyard from the direction of King Street as we stood on backstairs. Only direction not within sight or fully fully covered by cameras.
3/11/18 Installing light on back steps when yard misted with pyrethrim. Usual symptoms. Attack appeared to come from backyard several houses down Pleasant Avenue from the King Street side, given prevailing wind and that I was watching immediately adjacent houses and yards on Pleasant and Eureka Avenues as worked.
The first Herkimer poison gas attack of the New Year was on Thursday, 2/15/18, between 1200 and 1530 on Pleasant Avenue, from the area of the rental houses the Stanley Sykes’ gang occupies next to our home. Herkimer’s entrenched drug and child traffickers were marking the one-year anniversary of their first murderous poison gas attack on us with a fresh mist dose of an invisible odorless pesticide.
Being gas, it didn’t confine itself to our yard, but spread as a toxic mist along Pleasant Avenue during prime school bus time. Not poisoned were the Barton and Sykes gang kids, all of whom had vanished from the street.
Herkimer Poison Gas Again an Odorless Pyrethroid Insecticide
Driveby poison gas attack on our home on 8.10.17 using Deltamethrin. Attackers stop in front of Carrie Ann Bass’ 334 Pleasant Ave to give victory flash.
The poison gas used again had all the attributes and symptoms of odorless Deltamethrin, a pyrethroid insecticide. The weapon of choice appears to remain battery-powered hand foggers. As educated victims of scores of previous Herkimer poison gas attacks, we recognized the symptoms of Deltamethrin: stinging of the eyes, dizziness, itching skin, rashes. Symptoms may also include including burning, partial numbness, “pins and needles”, skin crawling, and different abnormal sensations of the face and lips.
Herkimer Poison Gas Warnings
If you believe you or your children were or are affected, seek medical help and tell them you suspect a pyrethroid. Prolonged exposure to the repeated gas attacks common to Herkimer can cause a host of developmental medical problems, such as endocrine disorders and Parkinson’s disease.
Deltamethrin dissipates quickly but can leave havoc in its wake. It’s a neurotoxin; it attacks the central nervous system. It’s absorb by breast milk and can be passed on to nursing infants. It lingers in the environment, contaminating clothing, bedding and other soft goods, people and pets.
Latest Herkimer Poison Gas Attack Coincident with Joyce Barton’s New Prosperity
It was our first gassing since October here on Herkimer’s unfortunately-named Pleasant Avenue. As with other Herkimer poison gas attacks, this one was signaled by a sudden obvious infusion of cash to our neighbor Joyce Barton, who’d been struggling to make ends meet after her well-known green Herkimer methmobile delivery car died a very public death. She now has a cute used blue Corolla with a spiffy spoiler. Though she rarely uses her new car, she’s probably out there somewhere, adding to Herkimer’s opioid epidemic from her handsome new double-cab pickup truck, garaged elsewhere. Someone’s got her back. Again.
Joyce’s putative husband, East Herkimer Volunteer Fire Chief Douglas Barton, appears to have moved from Joyce Barton’s 330 Pleasant Avenue. Doug’s been replaced by a pickup truck-driving cutout.
Herkimer Landlord Jay Smith Continues Sheltering Stanley Sykes Gang
We weren’t home when the gas came in. It was targeted at a first floor window. Like many other of the preceding 50+ poison gas attacks, it came from the Stanley Sykes gang’s parking lot, which abuts our back yard and spans 341 Eureka and 334 Pleasant Avenues. The Sykes gang members are long-time tenants of Herkimer landlord Jay Smith.
Joyce Barton and Stanley Sykes are allies, probably dating back to before they were chased out of Utica. It was kind of Joyce to remember us after she got some cash and threw some Stanley’s way.
Herkimer’s Sykes Gang Steadily Trafficking Out of 334 Pleasant Avenue
Stanley Sykes himself no longer traffics in his signature red SUV heroin hearse. He’s downgraded to an older, rusted white Hyundai Elantra (NY license HUR 8272) of the sort favored by Herkimer’s less flamboyant drug dealers.
We keep hearing that Carrie Ann Bass has moved, but we continue seeing her slipping across that parking lot from 334 Pleasant to Stanley’s 341 Eureka. And a flow of customers to her side door, rather than her front, the Herkimer Police having apparently forbidden her the street.
Sykes Gang’s Carrie Ann Bass and Her Invisible Cat
We haven’t been treated to one of Carrie Ann’s harassment performances since September, when she slipped down the street a few houses to the no-man’s land between the creepy stalking methheads house and ours. Here she is in that performance. (The other woman appears to be from the methheads house.)
The brazen narco-terrorism of Herkimer’s poison gas attacks have sent our social media metrics soaring. (If only we were paid, and by the view.) People expect poison gas attacks in Syria and Yemen, not in America. But as the folks here say with a shrug, “It’s Herkimer.”
Why Are They Still Here?
I’m sure we’re not the only ones relieved that the Herkimer police are finally cracking down on criminal harassment and street assaults and arresting thugs. But as long as Herkimer values the blood money of the vile likes of the Sykes gang and Joyce Barton over the safety of it citizens, Herkimer’s telling the world it’s dirty, and likes it. And if that’s not true, ask yourself, why are they still here?
For months, depraved criminals openly used weapons of mass destruction to poison us, our neighbors, and much of South Herkimer Village, drifting toxic mists forming from the witch’s brew of pesticides they released on us.
Thanks to law enforcement drone surveillance coordinated with ground intercepts, the driveby poison gas attacks on us using hand foggers here on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue have been stopped. The last driveby gas attack we noted was on 10/11, and that didn’t seem part of the earlier coordinated attacks. Those had ended some weeks before. Anyone arrested is probably looking at some heavy federal prison time. Anyone not arrested is probably sweating being turned in for lighter sentences.
The Last Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks?
The last Herkimer poison gas attacks on our home (330 Pleasant Avenue) that we noted were on 11/14 between 9:00 and 9:15 pm, and 11/22 at 3:30 a.m. Both attacks were from either the rear or the 328 Pleasant side of our house. They were close together, each signaled by multiple “Whomps” of released compression, like a mortar firing or a bear’s loud whuff. The pesticide was probably released by timer in an attempt to outwit drone surveillance by an absence of suspects in the likely areas at the reported time of the attack. Any toxics fired down our driveway also poisoned the street and neighboring homes.
Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks – The Bad News
Although the driveby poison gas sprayers seem gone, other poisoners are still here. They’re part of the back and side yard gassing squad.
These were coordinated attacks, using a carefully chosen array of pesticides and agricultural pesticide dispensing equipment. Given the limited nature of the Sykes gang members, a rogue agricultural pesticide expert was probably consulted. Gassing attacks from yards continued after the drivebys ended. Larger poisoning gear was probably set for late night timed release, as it was in this video. The video shows the two types of attacks, streaming and misting. Watch carefully on the lower right at 0.48, and you’ll see the poison mist from a handfogger enter the yard next door from the driveway, then dissipate.
Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks — the Creepy Stalking Meth Heads
Here’s a video showing two of our camera-shy, suspected poison gassers. They specialize in the late night gassing of us from rear and side yards. We call them Thing 1 and Thing 2, or collectively, the drunks. (They’re on a different road to Hell than alcohol, but their speech is often slurred.) They’re creepy.
These two depraved specimens of the ravages of meth amphetamine addiction have had much to do with the scores of overlapping poison gas attacks on us, here on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. They’re proud of their work and will come up to you on the sidewalk and ask with a grin, “How do you like being gassed?” (Reply: “How do you like going to Hell?”)
I call them Thing 1 and Thing 2, and collectively, the drunks, as they often sound drunk. They’re known associates of Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes gang, which is embedded in two Jay Smith houses on the other side of us, at 334 Pleasant Avenue and 341 Eureka Avenue. The Sykes’ gang loudly holds us and our video-rich blog responsible for their unprofitable trafficking operations. (For a long time, they didn’t believe in surveillance drones, and so never bothered to look up.)
Night often finds the drunks stalking our property, making mischief and peering at our cameras to see if the little red lights are on. In this video, one of them immediately notices our door camera is missing (firmware update), and comes to check on our health and try to scope out the locks and sensors. He ignores two No Trespassing signs. He asks for me. He was told he was trespassing and sent off. Typically, our criminal visitors ask for whichever one of us the two of us doesn’t answer the door. They’re sent to see if we’re yet sickened and dying.
The nighttime drunk in the video contents himself with scoping out our street-side cameras and either chatting with them, or possibly blessing us and our home.
We’ve heard Stanley Sykes declare to his krew that he paid for the right to traffic out of his multi-house Herkimer location and vow that we will soon be gone. (In fairness, Stanley did offer us $1,500 for our house.)
Herkimer’s Stanley Sykes, the Addicts’ Friend
That’s the drunks’ yard seen from our back bedroom. The photo was taken on 11/22/17, the date of the last known poison gas attack on us. The two were apparently then gifted with the contents of those small white plastic bags littering their yard. Stanley Sykes was seen visiting them that day.
Both human husks are long-term tenants at Jay Smith’s 326 Pleasant Avenue. Harriett Tangorra’s vacant 328 Pleasant lies between us, it’s backyard wide open to them and pesticide dispensers. The houses on either side of their’s are for sale. Probably will be for a while.
Long Term Effects of Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks
The effects of these heinous attacks will continue to impact us, our neighbors and pets, and the Herkimer village environment for a long time. We’ve had health issues attributable to pesticide exposure. Our backyard remains toxic. Our beautiful birds are gone, poisoned in our yard from Sykes’ yard. We didn’t know that by feeding them, we were luring them to their deaths. And still, our poisoners are here.
