Herkimer Gang Poisons Crops
Concerned friend watches helplessly as poisoned squash suffers inedibility.

It’s harvest time here in Upstate New York. Pumpkins and apple cider, squashes and fall festivals, game suppers and Halloween. The leaves are turning and the crisp mountain air off the Adirondacks is like ambrosia. There are people out West who’d kill for a breath of our air. Compared to much of the nation, we’re pretty well off so far: Covid-19 infections are low, home sales are up, industry’s moving in. No drastic budget cuts yet. Much to give thanks for.

Here in our pastoral village of Herkimer, the community continues its good-hearted sharing of its abundance with our drug gang neighbors, notably the Kim Vargas gang, routinely delivering them free food, with the good stuff packed in ice.

The Vargases recently celebrated harvest season by destroying our bumper crop of squash with herbicide, with the added fun of slaughtering our sunflower plant. The sunflower taunted their inner ugliness with its beauty and grace for much of the summer.

“It’s obscene that in a time of national pandemic, hunger and growing homelessness, Herkimer continues to coddle its criminals.”

As we’ve noted before, throughout the spring and summer, our backyard was blasted with volatilized pesticide from the Vargases’ yard. Below is a video of a kind gentleman delivering food to the Vargases and to the drug trafficking gang on the other side of us, landlord Jay Smith’s Kyle Stone gang. The young gang guy taking the food boxes is Xavier Rowe. This is the most work I’ve ever seen Xavier do. Kyle himself makes a cameo appearance, carrying a box of Dunkin Donuts.

After that portion of the video, there’s an older clip of Joyce Barton of the Joyce Barton Gang delivering foodbank boxes to the Kyle Stones and some of her other neighbors before scooting into her house at 333 Pleasant Avenue with her own food. Photos of our poisoned crops and plantings are at the end.

Misplaced Charity Helps Sustain Herkimer Drug Gangs

It’s obscene that in a time of national pandemic, hunger and growing homelessness, Herkimer continues to coddle its criminals.  Free food is but one example. Our Herkimer gangs are happily nested here, and why not? It’s been the good life for them for the long decades in which Upstate New York was the poor country cousin of Downsate. Supportive landlords give them sanctuary, and the community and the state of New York provide them SNAP and cash assistance, fuel subsidies, utilities’ help, top of the line Medicaid coverage and a world class Medicaid dental insurance. And all amid the comfort of extended family networks.

“Only New York would put up with these destructive social parasites. They traffic poison and poison their neighbors.”

We’re close to shopping and astride major transportation routes and near magnificent recreational areas. (Herkimer’s drug and child traffickers vacation throughout the summer; we’ve heard some chat about their camps in the hills.) Why ever would they move? Heck, I wouldn’t. Only New York would put up with these destructive social parasites. They traffic poison and poison their neighbors.  In Florida, where we moved from, they’d be lucky to be merely homeless or in jail. And of course Herkimer’s gangs have long driven out many who opposed their domination of ours and other streets. 

Herkimer Becoming A Refuge Amid Pandemic And Climate Relocation

Times are rapidly changing: the area’s becoming a relocation mecca for its climate stability. Nice houses here get snapped up as soon as they hit the MLS. Rents are absurd. Drive the village streets; longtime residents and newcomers are busily fixing up their houses. Look at the out-of-state license plates in the Walmart parking lot: California, Texas, North Carolina, Florida. Many are on upscale German imports. There’s money behind this. Two recent examples–artisans replacing a slate roof on one of the long neglected grand old homes in north Herkimer. Slate. (!) While down the street at another house, about an acre of brick exterior was being carefully repointed and cleaned.

“History may mark this time as the beginning of the largest mass migration since the fall of Rome.” 

This isn’t a casual movement of a few, it’s a significant change in human geography in response to global crisis.  History may mark this time as the beginning of the largest mass migration since the fall of Rome.  A lot of  people are coming here and they all need homes. Boomtimes banishes gangs as property values soar and slumlords send their tenants packing and sellout. Yes, even on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. We saw it in Boston and we’re seeing it here, though the transition is much faster. There’s no room for gangs in this new world.

Herkimer Poisonings Log Updated

Hits: 332

After an 8 month break, we’ve brought the Herkimer poisonings log out of retirement. A disturbing pattern of poison gas attacks is reemerging and needs to be noted and dealt with before it expands. School’s about to start and though our criminal neighbors don’t believe it, gas doesn’t stay where you send it. They’ve gassed kids before and they’ve gassed our law-abiding neighbors before, all in their failed attempts to oust us from our home.  They’ll do it until they’re gone. They’re devolved humans who endlessly repeat that which didn’t work.

Rather than clutter the blog with the commonplace of Herkimer poisonings, we’ll keep adding to the poisonings log as long as these heinous attacks continue.

Herkimer Poison Chemical Attacks Ramping Up?

Hits: 265

Herkimer poison chemical attacks have resumed after a long hiatus. Our recent posts and videos outing gang harassment, identifying gang members and the new owner of an adjacent criminal property—Joseph Handy, 328 Pleasant Avenue–probably annoyed the local Stanley Sykes gang overseers.

It’s the usual high-pressure spraying of invisible volatilized pesticides, probably from beneath specially outfitted vehicles, like the Joyce Barton gang’s vanished sprayin’ truck. (Below.)

Herkimer Poison Chemical Attacks Ramping Up?

Attacks have been light so far. Possibly just ramping up: spraying of our backyard with poisons from landlord Jay Smith’s gang sanctuary to one side of us, long occupied by the Stanley Sykes gang, the rest from Pleasant Avenue.  Toxic spraying of our front yard. From experience, we believe all attacks were from vehicle mounted pesticide sprayers.

Today I was blasted in the back with poison while bringing in the groceries, though our driveway had already been dosed with pesticides when we were out shopping.

“Today I was blasted in the back with poison while bringing in the groceries…”

Analysis of surveillance footage revealed only one candidate vehicle, an unfamiliar gray truck. It traversed the street several times shortly before our return from shopping at 1040 hrs, and hasn’t been seen since 1248 hrs. It is the only candidate.

“Analysis of surveillance footage revealed only one candidate vehicle, an unfamiliar gray truck.”

Here are its times down Pleasant Avenue: 1034 hrs , 1048, 1110, 1251. And here’s the vehicle. No other vehicles were on the street at the time of attack.

Law enforcement has perfected ways to detect these terroristic attacks. Those who want to make money poisoning people in Herkimer should ask, “Why aren’t you doing this yourself?” And–crucial!–what happened to the previous poisoners? We don’t know—we don’t get those emails. But it’s probably not pretty.

 

 

 

Very Visible Herkimer Poison Gas Attack

Hits: 188

Stephen Ames Berry

Here’s a recent, very visible Herkimer poison gas attack. Seems our murderous band of neighbors screwed up the settings on one of their pesticide foggers. The fogger’s hidden under that jeep next to our fence. That’s not their jeep. That’s not their house. They rent the house to the jeep’s rear, 334 Pleasant Avenue. The parking lot is Herkimer’s historic child trafficking lot, long a big money maker for Herkimer gangs.

The volatilized pesticide we’ve been getting dosed with the last few years has almost always been invisible to the naked eye, the fogger’s output probably set to an imperceptible particle size of 7-10 microns.

Herkimer poisoning foggers
Pesticide foggers – average adjustable particle sizes compared to human hair follicle

This stream, though, seems to be set at a very visible 30 microns. The initial range of the standard pesticide fogger is about 60 ft., visible or invisible, according to the literature. And, as seen in the video, the pesticide plum can easily soar two-stories from within a few feet of its source. The pesticide is odorless and colorless and attacks the central nervous system, as we can attest.

Timeline of Herkimer Gas Attack of 11.26.18

Minutes

0:01 – 0:10 Pesticide mist begins issuing from under front of driver’s side of jeep. Note: mild prevailing wind direction was N-S. Toxin is spewing E-W toward King Street.

0:11 – 0:14 View from our bedroom cam. Pesticide fog flows through fence, toward house and into our yard. Yard is still toxic from years of these attacks.

01:15 – 01:16 View from above backyard security light as poison seeps into yard and under our back porch and toward basement door. Gas would have continued into neighboring yards, homes and street.

1:17 – 1:39 Bedroom cam.  Poisonous cloud enveloping 2nd floor and bedroom window. Moving off to the west to poison other homes and street. (No one leaves their windows open here on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue.)

1:40 -2:15 1914 hrs. View from our parking lot light.

2:16 – 2:32 End Same view as of 2032 hrs. Poisonous output continuous since 1914 hrs. 2032 hrs – Drug runner car exits 341 Eureka Avenue rear, pauses to check out gas attack, moves on.

2:32 – End. Attack begins to taper off at 2052 hrs.

Use of Neighbors’ Property by Attackers

This attack lasted approximately two hours, 1910 hrs to 2200 hrs. It was staged from the rear of our law-abiding neighbors’ home at 332 Pleasant Avenue. That’s their jeep, parked behind their house. They have good day jobs and are rarely home. Their jeep at the time had been a motionless lawn ornament for some months. No one approached the vehicle that day or the previous several days. Many of these attacks seem to be triggered remotely or via a timer.

Our criminal neighbors would have noticed this. They live in the house behind the jeep—334 Pleasant Avenue—and the house to the right end of the parking lot, 341 Eureka Avenue. The houses are owned by Herkimer landlord Jay Smith. We previously outed 334 Pleasant Avenue as a source of poison gas attacks and lit up the suspected area at 334 rear. The gang then apparently moved their pesticide fogger closer to our house, using their unaware neighbor’s vehicle for cover.

Organophosphates Still Herkimer Poisoners’ Gas of Choice

As with most poison gas attacks here in South Herkimer, this one was with an odorless, colorless pesticide, released with the usual wanton disregard for people, pets and property.   In our experience, Herkimer gangs’ pesticide of choice has all the symptoms of a highly-toxic organophosphate, attacking the central nervous system. Odorless, colorless, a cousin of Sarin nerve gas. Nasty stuff. We’ve tightened up our house quite a bit, so the effect of this attack on us was negligible. After several years of these heinous attacks, though, our house and yard and neighborhood are thoroughly saturated with poison.

Police remain baffled.

New York State Police and Herkimer Poison Gas Attacks

Hits: 213

Stephen Ames Berry and Linda Kaidan

“Human trafficking finds both its victims and perpetrators in regions of
poverty, violence, and corruption.”  Shannon A. Welch, Human Trafficking and Terrorism

Last month we met with New York State Police Investigator Jason Nellis at his request. We talked for about 90 minutes in a part of our home not yet contaminated by Herkimer trafficking gangs’ 21 months of poison gas attacks.  Our conversation highlighted the inherent inability of local and state law enforcement to cope with gang-based domestic terrorism.

Herkimer Child Trafficking Sparks  Concern In Albany

Nellis came in response  to “the concerns of several people” in Albany regarding our widely-read series exposing Herkimer’s extensive role in the multi-billion dollar transcontinental child trafficking industry.  He also addressed our nearly 2 years reporting gang attacks on our property and selves using volatilized pesticides.  

It was an information-only visit during which Investigator Nellis clearly articulated why the New York State Police aren’t players in the child trafficking and gang-busting arena.

We were our usual unflinchingly outspoken selves. Investigator Nellis was an engaged listener. He didn’t agree with some of our suppositions, and we didn’t agree with some of his assumptions. It was a polite and frank  exchange during which we made the following points.

  • Herkimer child trafficking now  apparently out of range of our cameras – Not gone far. Child trafficking brings welcomed cash into economically depressed Herkimer. Has long been protected here. Logistically complex operation with many dependencies. Has proven local partners and protected properties. Moving it from Herkimer would be difficult, costly, time consuming and risky. 
  • Herkimer landlords complacently shelter child traffickers  – Property owner need not be complicit  with cash heavy criminals.  Just has to rent to them.  Herkimer’s historic child trafficking hub properties’ landlord Jay Smith was case  raised by state police investigator. For years Smith provided rental properties to the high-volume transnational child trafficker Little Mama and the Stanley Sykes gang. Gang’s still there, still trafficking.
  • FBI has sole jurisdiction over child trafficking – This we knew. Local and state police agencies haven’t the resources to tackle child trafficking cartels and their transnational networks. Billions in child trafficking profits make  large bribes possible. The FBI has the resources to take on large gangs and also provides assurance of integrity.

Why State Police can’t stop Herkimer poison gas attacks

It became obvious as we talked that the State of New York has no way to detect and interdict poison gas attacks on the scale we’ve experienced.  No state does–states haven’t the resources and their police agencies haven’t the structure. These heinous attacks constitute domestic terrorism. They’re staged from fleets vehicles modified to stealthily dispense clouds of invisible, odorless pesticide, and from neighboring  properties rented to  drug and child traffickers. 

This isn’t just about us.  The many vehicles and properties involved argue this is a well-established, well-honed strategy for driving people from their homes, dead or alive.  Houses can then be picked up for a song at tax auction, quickly mitigated and tenanted  with gang members.

There was much talk of the burden of proof  being our responsibility. Opening an investigation  would require evidence in the form of medical tests and property toxicity reports–at our expense. 

Investigator Nellis used the word “evidence’ quite a bit. No evidence, no investigation. We think probable cause should be enough to open an investigation with evidence to be obtained by the police during the course of the investigation.

Only the FBI Can Halt Herkimer Gangs

There have been strong indications in the last few years of a large Federal law enforcement presence in and around Herkimer. Eyes in the sky, boots on the ground. It seems to us toxicity levels from these poisons attacks have been confirmed by lab testing and direct observation. And resources deployed accordingly. 

Some big bites have been taken out of the gangs’ poison gas campaign capabilities in Herkimer. The feds have the resources for this. Drone mounted thermal imaging cameras can detect poison gas being dispensed, and follow the identified spraying vehicles and deal with their drivers.

Let’s put a tiny part of NY’s “$224 million in federal funding to support counterterrorism and emergency preparedness” to good use.

In September  2018 Herkimer County was awarded $89,974 as part of a statewide grant to improve safety in New York. Counter-terrorism is one purpose of this grant. Perhaps a very small part of it could go to halting child trafficking activities on Pleasant Avenue in Herkimer, NY using modern technology, like the FLIR Griffin™ G510 portable gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS).  This chemical hazard identification device can quickly identify serious hazards. A single device can be shared by multiple counties and solve problems currently identified as being “impossible to prove.”  Help end the long reign of Herkimer’s three monkeys.

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: 

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.

  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.

Herkimer’s Poisonous Bartons Spray On

Hits: 120

Stephen Ames Berry
The more things change, the more they remain the same-Herkimer’s poisonous Bartons spray on. Despite the arrest of one gang member and the disappearance of another, the Joyce Baton gang continues spraying our home and us with odorless pesticides. This is the 19th month of poison gas attacks on us here in Herkimer. 

Lillie Belle Williams of Herkimer's Joyce Barton gang

The Barton gang poison gassers seem mostly down to Joyce Barton and household members. Still using the same old truck, several times a day they send a burst of volatilized pesticide down our driveway from a concealed fogger somewhere on their spraymobile. (The truck apparently enjoys diplomatic immunity.)

If you don’t believe me, come stand beside outside me for a driveby.  Or in an open window. Morning’s their preferred time, though the sight of us outside at any time often inspires a quick burst. Sometimes they fire down our 332 Pleasant Avenue neighbors’ driveway. Sometimes the gas gets into our 328 neighbors’ house and yard, sometimes it drifts into the street. 

If there’s a will to stop this murderous conduct, a way will be found.  Until then, the war of attrition between Herkimer’s legacy criminals and its first climate change migrants grinds on.

Happy Autumn, all.

 

16th Month of Poison Gas Attacks

Hits: 153

by Stephen Ames Berry
June was the 16th month of poison gas attacks on us here on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue.  They’ve taken on new life following the arrest of Joyce Barton family member Shianne Hill for the unprovoked May 18th assault on the Herkimer Post’s Linda Kaidan in front of Bartons’ 333 Pleasant Avenue. Our neighbor Joyce Barton seems to be filling the role of Herkimer’s new arch poisoner, Stanley Sykes having moved after being featured in our child trafficking posts.

Joyce Barton poisoner presumptive
Herkimer’s Joyce Barton. (5/18/18) Joyce’s shirt is fittingly apt for Herkimer’s ace drug peddler and arch poisoner.

There seem to be only a few gassing vehicles now in use.  The principal vehicle is Douglas Barton’s old truck, in the driveway across the street from us at the Bartons’ 330 Pleasant Avenue. (Barton himself is gone, his place taken by a younger clone.)  That truck is no stranger to the law.

Joyce Barton’s shirt’s a fitting choice for Herkimer’s arch poisoner and drug dealer. The pesticide being directed from beneath all vehicles is more toxic than many previously used. The foggers used to volatilize and dispense the pesticide are apparently easily moved to other vehicles. 

Herkimer Poison Gassers Using GPS Tracking?

In the past month, our murderous band of Herkimer neighbors have developed an uncanny ability to accurately predict when we’ll be arriving home. Pulling into our driveway, we’re often greeted with a fresh toxic cloud of odorless pesticide. It disperses within a few moments, indicating it was just applied. The drive time from our usual Herkimer haunts is only a few minutes. Knowing our location and travel route allows a reduced number of poisoners to apply fresh pesticide to our driveway without resorting to the high-volume, high visible driveby poison gassings which seems to have taken a lot of them off of the road. 

The toxin in our driveway is often augmented by a custom poison spraying directed into our backs from the street as we unload groceries. Volatilized pesticide is invisibly  released under pressure from a fogger beneath a vehicle.  Doug Barton’s old truck is associated with quite a few but all not blasts of poison as it innocently backs out of the Barton driveway. 

Herkimer poison spraying truck
6.25.18 Poison gassing truck at Joyce Barton’s 330 Pleasant Ave. It’s associated with many of the driveby gassing attacks on us. Volatilized pesticides are now dispensed from beneath Herkimer’s fleet of gassing vehicles to avoid camera observation. Gas dispensing equipment is shuffled from vehicle to vehicle at need.

Herkimer Poisoners Using New Highly Caustic Chemical

The poison used on us in the past month is caustic and highly toxic It abrades the skin, and attacks the central nervous system and the lungs. Multiple showers are needed to detox Some clothing will clean up after repeated washings. If not, they must be discarded, or will serve to dispense more poison in the body.

Rather than ripping our car apart looking for a GPS tracker, then doing it again when another one’s secreted, we often wear Tyvek. Yard work safety calls for Tyvek, as does protection from opportunistic driveby poisonings. (The neighborhood abounds in spotters, who blame us for their loss of drug and child trafficking income, and of course, for “getting Shianne arrested.” )

poison gas attack apparel
When you live among filth, dress accordingly: Hazmat suit and P-100 gas mask are needed to survive yard work around our Herkimer home. Proper attire discourages poison gas attacks during outdoor activities.

For prolonged outdoor exposure on Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue, a  military grade P-100 gas mask is standard.  Here I am in full chemical warfare regalia, trimming a tree. Unprotected, this activity would subject me to a driveby gas attack, usually from the Barton’s truck.

Biohazard suits and the masks should do us for the duration, if Joyce Barton doesn’t source some Sarin nerve gas from Syria. Our yards though, are hopelessly poisoned, as are those of many of our neighbors.
