This pair of apprentice vandals from 333 Pleasant Avenue have been bombarding our house daily this week with ice balls. They took out a window. 333’s the former Barton Gang place, across the street from us. Joyce Barton and her crew left it with kindred spirits, who are apparently raising their kids in the Herkimer gang tradition of vandalism and harassment.
The young man who’s the principal thrower is careful to video his work–assume he’s being paid. Assume probably by neighboring drug thug and monster mom Kim Vargas, who’s upset that her son Jordan Bormann’s facing a felony prison sentence for savaging an elderly neighbor in the street.
Will send this on to the police. They’ll have a chat with the kids and their folks.
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.
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 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.” )
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.
Herkimer’s 333 Pleasant Ave’s Teenage Girl Bullies can learn a wonderful lesson from this 9 year old girl. She saw a problem–homeless people– and decided to solve it. No matter how old you are or how nasty your family might be, you can change the world for the better. You are not dust flying in the wind, aimlessly blown here and there. Rather, you are the sum of your deeds and every day matters. Each good deed you do increases your beauty. The opposite is also true.
As you grow older, you can look back with joy and contentment at a life well-lived or you can gaze upon a sad and wasted existence. The choice is entirely yours. Perhaps you can try changing 333 Pleasant Ave Teenage Girl Bullies to 333 Pleasant Ave Teenage Girl Heroes and make that the title for what you are going forward 🙂
