Barton Gang Truck: Poison Spraying by the Numbers

Poison Spraying Truck Herkimer Barton Gang
9/16/18 One of many vehicles used by Herkimer gangs to spray pesticide on people and homes. This one is used by the Joyce Barton gang. The pesticide tank was not on the truck at time of photo.

After months of well-publicized poison spraying of our home and us by Herkimer’s Joyce Barton gang, we undertook our own investigation, the Herkimer Police apparently stymied.

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:

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.

  1. On the driver’s side a long cylinder with a 50% cut out on the 180 degrees facing the street is apparent.
  2. This cylinder may be an integral part of a spraying mechanism.
  3. A electrical connection dangles from the rear.
  4. 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. 

 

 

 

East Herkimer Fire Department Sold

Well, as I live and breathe. After being gassed in February and poisoned in March, we took a bit of a vacation. When we left, our neighbors, Herkimer’s Douglas Barton and Joyce Barton, appeared to be going through tough times: home rarely, woebegone looks, no more convenience foods, house dark, kids sad and angry.

Returning ten days later, we found the Bartons’ lives seemingly touched by gold. There was Joyce Barton on her 333 Pleasant Avenue command porch,

passing out favors to her throng of fair weather friends, as when she was the undisputed queen of Herkimer’s bustling drug trafficking row.  And  a welcoming friend to new neighbors.

Since our return, Joyce Barton’s been busy networking again with like-minded neighbors, partially in response to our unexpected return. (So many crestfallen faces when we pulled into driveway and emerged, relaxed and tanned. )

I suppose to the watching hopeful along Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue, it seemed we’d abandoned our poisoned Herkimer home, packed up our pets, a few things and fled. Had I been hired to dispose of such nosy neighbors as we, dead or alive, I’d have then demand my money, reporting mission accomplished. But would have had the brains to not spend like a sailor.

And what did Douglas Barton do with his share of the Barton’s sudden golden shower? Douglas Barton bought the East Herkimer Fire Department. (Volunteer company–one engine.) How else to explain his meteoric return from the ranks, following his…suspicious…garage fire and

subsequent demotion from Deputy Chief? And those threats of arson coming from his porch one turbulent evening, directed at us and heard by many? If these are the attributes of a good fire chief, then we’re all doomed if catastrophe strikes.

East Herkimer Fire Department’s Empty Boots

Looking at the fire company’s roster (top), all their other top ranks are suddenly empty. They weren’t when Douglas Barton was returned to the ranks. Perhaps there was vehement opposition to Barton’s election as Chief, with old hands quitting in disgust? Or maybe they just ate some bad food and passed away.

Of Firemen and Ladders and Poison

When I think firemen, I think ladders.

The long-term salting of our furnace with a powdered insecticide required little finesse. The dosing of our home did with a spray-gun dispensed pesticide did. It was skilfully and stealthily carried out via a ladder, over a period of months in broad daylight. And done several times weekly with the aid of some of our depraved neighbors, who served as lookouts, calling the ladder man when we went for our morning walks and as we returned. Here’s one suspected lookout: 334 Pleasant Avenue Herkimer’s “The Blessing.”

The objective, as with the furnace salting, was to continuously poison us so we’d slowly sicken and die, never suspecting we’d been  murdered. We’d just pass away, as have probably many other Herkimer murder victims here over the years. Well, the word is now out, and jig is up. Spring is here and the ground may soon give up its dead to autopsy.

For reasons which will later sound not at all paranoid, our systematic poisoning probably began even before we moved into our house, three years ago. That cold diabolical plan was destroyed by the enraged nighttime pesticide attack of February 22nd. (See Herkimer Jewish Blogger Gassed) The attack was apparently sparked by our sharing The Herkimer Post’s annual blog statistics a two days earlier: 20,000+ worldwide view of Herkimer crime. The Barton’s and Curtis Cool, aka Curtis Dolan, rocketed our blog to success. Neither does well in sunlight. Nor does Herkimer.

Curtis Cool, aka Curtis Dolan – The Bartons’ Silent Backer?

Had I to guess who was bankrolling the Bartons, I’d say Curtis Cool, aka Curtis Dolan. Curtis has long been chums with the Bartons. He seemed a cash-heavy entity when he lived next door at 328 Pleasant Avenue, renting Herkimer Clerk of Courts’ Harriett Tangorra’s house. Curtis, who waged a lengthy campaign of harassment against us, is rumored to be the scion of Herkimer’s most respected drug manufacturing family. In Herkimer County, New York, this would grant him the status of untouchable nobility; Curtis Cool could only be tried before the Herkimer Drug Lord Himself.

Certainly Herkimer Police and fire officials refused to take complaints against him, possibly fearing they or their families might be poisoned. Because of us and our widely-viewed blog, Curtis had to give up his comfy digs next door and beat an ignominious retreat. He may harbor a grudge.

A Heartfelt “Thank You” to the Herkimer Community

Lastly, we’d like to thank the Herkimer community and authorities for their outpouring of support and sympathy following two well-publicized,  heinous attempts on our lives within the last two months. Their names and organizations are below:

Oh well. As folks in Herkimer say with a shrug, “It’s Herkimer.”

Herkimer’s community ethos is one which historically has left a lot empty shoes behind.

Perhaps a viewing of Schinlder’s List might help restore Herkimer’s atrophied social conscience?

Oh. Hail to the Chief:
