The New York Times made one of the most significant contributions to protecting mankind this week, when it painted a clear picture of the jeopardy we are now in from climate change. NYT’s earthshaking article, Perils of climate change could swamp coastal real estate, makes it clear how buying and owning property in coastal areas is a risk to both your person and your wallet. For all coastal dwellers like those in Florida, Louisiana, New York, Sidney Australia and the Pacific Islands, now is the time to relocate rather than play a game of Russian Roulette which the ocean will inevitably win.
Florida is a narrow peninsula with a single major highway, I-75 that connects the south to the north. It is easy to imagine a cataclysmic event where vehicles are at a bumper to bumper standstill as a hurricane-driven super wave rolls across the flat landscape destroying everything for miles.
The New York Times has stated clearly that those in low lying coastal areas must relocate. It has issued the first direct call to migrate from unsafe areas most endangered by climate change. If you live in such an area, think about moving inland. If you are in a safe and sustainable area like Herkimer County, Albany, Rochester or anywhere in Central New York – prepare to receive incoming populations.
Meth tweaker assaults all have much common–meth heads are intellectually disabled by their addiction and easily incited to commit acts of abuse and violence by cowardly false friends, who use them as methbots.
In his most recent attack, this self-admitted criminal and probable meth tweaker, spotted me as I ambled with my old dog the few doors down from our house to 318 Pleasant Avenue, there to take a photo of a new “Room for Rent” sign, foolishly thinking that perhaps he’d been evicted following the public exposure of his harassing elders in the street. Silly me. As folks around here say with a sigh and a shrug, “It’s Herkimer.” (Folks in Sodom probably shrugged and said “It’s Sodom.”)
the crack house keeper’s lair
Apparently Herkimer’s Crack House Keeper was hanging out with his fellow wastrels at 335 Pleasant Avenue, the street’s remaining scrote sanctuary. Spotting me from afar taking a photo of the Room For Rent sign at 316 Pleasant Avenue, and unleashed by his handlers, he charged down the street, screaming threats and obscenities.
I turned to meet his attack, my faithful cellphone camera rolling. “You can’t take pictures of my fucking house, you old fuck!” he screamed as he slammed into my 69 year-old right shoulder with his significantly younger one.
all criminals are victims
“You hit me!” he screeched as I staggered back, raving on, “You fuckin’ got me violated!” [Meaning his probation officer cited him for violating the conditions of his probation. He probably now has a court appearance coming.] “I was drug tested!” he wailed. No! You’d think he was a criminal! And he didn’t even didn’t have time to buy clean urine.
Seems likely his Herkimer County Probation officer read that post. (Perhaps he or she will read this one. ) “A lot of people on this street want to beat you two up!” People? Would these people be from 335 Pleasant Avenue?
Curses! a misfire!
Unfortunately, before Tweakie could be deescalted by my dog repellent, my wife arrived and expedited his retreat. Just as well—when he struck me, I inadvertently scrubbed the video filming in progress. (I sorrow for the thousands of YouTube hits that now never will be. ) Next time.
Here’s the surveillance cams’ video clips of the comings and goings to and from the historic crack house during the assault. It’s up to the left, off camera. The scrote haven of 335 Pleasant Avenue, disturbingly next to Joyce Barton and Douglas Barton’s garageless house at 333 Pleasant Avenue, is where the loon first parks his bike, passing my wife on her way home:
Herkimer Police Respond
Oh. The Herkimer Police. Both my assailant and I raced to be the first to call the police, for, as Herkimer Mayor Anthony Brindisi, himself a retired Herkimer police officer, counselled me on the night one of his officers threatened my wife with arrest at the behest of street’s then-reigning drug thugs, in Herkimer “You’ve got to be the first to call the police, Steve.”
I don’t take drugs, so I beat the meth tweaker on the dial-out, making me in the Herkimer right. All of Herkimer’s criminals and apparently its mayor know if you’re the first to call the cops, especially if you’re breaking the law, then you’re the victim. We saw this in the case of Herkimer’s Joyce and Douglas Barton and Officer Heist. Here’s Herkimer’s talented Golden Child Curtis Cool, aka Curtis Dolan, on YouTube, showing us how it’s done, the Herkimer way.
I had a typical leisurely conversation with Herkimer County 911 center, as they probed to find out if there was really a problem, and weighed a measured response. I convinced them in slightly less time than it takes to apply for Social Security that it was a physical assault. Don’t how I’d have convinced them if he’d been throttling me.
Herkimer Police Sergeant Scholl Arrives
Herkimer Police Sergeant John Scholl rolled in fairly quickly. (911 did take my locally infamous name.) Sergeant Scholl told my attacker–whose female caregiver helped explain it to him–that public photography is legal. Yes, even in Herkimer NY, my child.
REELECTION of Herkimer County District Attorney Jeffrey Carpenter ensures herkimer stays an unsafe pirate haven
If you don’t take criminal complaints, there’s no reported crime. Keeps the stats reported to the FBI low. Don’t laugh–it just got the local district attorney reelected: reported crime on his watch fell statistically, even as his depraved indifference to public safety further emboldened criminals, police misfeasance and undoubtedly increased crime.
District Attorney Jeffrey Carpenter has helped establish Herkimer as a notorious pirate haven. #HerkimerParadiseHis opponent, our former DA and greatly respected retired judge, Bill Daley, meticulously pointed this out to Herkimer County voters: Facts, figures, legal sleights of hand. Judge Daley lost. It wasn’t even close. In Herkimer you can apparently fool enough of the people all of the time. But then, it’s Herkimer.
We’ve tried to file harassment complaints with the Herkimer Police on three occasions, twice with ample video documentation. The only result was our gifting the Herkimer Police and their families with free high capacity thumb drives. In fairness, most of the officers try to do their jobs despite an obvious failure of governance. But then several Herkimer police officers have tried to intimidate us under the color of law, responding to bogus complaints lodged by Herkimer’s more monied drug and child traffickers. And so The Herkimer Post was born.
herkimer’s old goats against the current
We’ll keep blogging on about matters of public concern, beating upstream, old goats against the current. We believe the sunlight the Herkimer Post helps shines on Herkimer has helped bring authentic law enforcement to our pastoral village, spotlighting Herkimer’s crime and failed governance. It’s also sent our blog and YouTube stats soaring. Sure beats the heck out of just sitting around growing squash. Though this most recent ugly incident we’ve beamed to the world from Bulgaria did remind us that we need to beef up our surveillance suite.
Been watching the drones? Pretty. They grace our skies and aren’t confined to just the night or the Herkimer Meth Bridge area. And Herkimer certainly earned them.The only change we foresee for them under Trump is the addition of weaponized police drones.
On our way back from voting this afternoon, we briefly greeted our shy new neighbors at 328 Pleasant Avenue. Here in Herkimer NY, it’s a rare pleasure to have young folks next door who show no overt signs of drug or child trafficking, pyromania, or indulge in criminal harassment of the defenseless elderly , as did owner Harriett Tangorra’s last tenant, suddenly-vanished but still-trending Curtis Cool. (Aka Curtis Dolan.)
