Analysis by the Herkimer Post’s Linda Kaidan shows a shortage of affordable housing anywhere near Marcy, NY, epicenter of the Cree Semiconductor Project’s growing impact on the region. Herkimer is no exception. Yet somehow the owner of 328 Pleasant Avenue,  Joe Handy of Ft. Plain, can only seem to find criminal tenants.  We’ve taken to calling it Joe Handy’s Herkimer thug house. The latest occupants  moved in a few months ago, following the departure of the last set of drug thugs from Handy’s 328.  As the affable Mr. Handy remarked to us while cleaning up after them, “Wait until you see the next tenants.” Indeed!

Meet Herkimer’s Kim Vargas and Family

Our new neighbors are the Kim Vargas family–aka Kimberly Vargas, aka Kimberly Bormann, her husband Joel Vargas Sr., older son Joel Jr. and a younger boy. They seem to move a lot, most recently from 344 E. German Street.  Kim Vargas was barely unpacked before she roared into gang thug domination mode, flaring up about our legion of security cameras, in place for years. Guess she didn’t notice them or didn’t read the surveillance warning signs before signing the lease. It’s the same complaint made by Curtis Doolen, aka Curtis Cool, when he trafficked drugs and kids out of 328 Pleasant and harassed his neighbors on the street and with bonfires.

328 Pleasant Avenue – The Doolen Gang House?

Maybe we should just call 328 Pleasant the Doolen Gang house, given the breadcrumbs that lead from its tenants to the Doolens: Original owner Harriett Tangorra was her longtime tenant Curtis Cool’s half-brother Davy Doolen’s aunt, according to Davy’s wife Emily, an RN and a straight-shooter. Davy and Emily were Tangorra’s tenants before Curtis. (BTW, we like Davy and Emily and their son. Nice young family. Pity you don’t get to choose your family.)

Current 328 owner Joe Handy, though now living in Ft. Plain, has public records showing a connection to 328 Pleasant in 2017 and to an Ilion address. Many of the Doolens also have roots in the Village of Ilion:

Kim Vargas and Curtis Doolen

Current 328 tenant Kim Vargas is also well-acquainted with Curtis Doolen, given what she said to our mutual neighbors, as captured on our audio the evening our light went on. (See below, audio timeline, Blinded by The Light, minute 2:22) Her husband’s family seem to be from New York and Vineland, NJ, according to background checks; any connection Kim Vargas has to the Doolens is probably via the local Bormann side of her family. (Gangs built upon  extensive and extended family must be very hard to infiltrate.)

For his thousands of YouTube followers, many of whom have asked “What became of Fat Curtis?” A recent photo of Curtis Doolen, aka Curtis Cool. (We met some of The Cools. They told us they made Curtis change his name back to Doolen after all the notoriety. “He was adopted. We’re not like him.”) Photo taken after he fled the jurisdiction for neighboring Ostego County. (Richfield Springs) Jail was good for Curtis. He’s lost weight and from his hat, hitched his anchor to a star. Photo suitable for printing and framing by his many Herkimer admirers.

Let There Be (More) Light

Based on six years of hard won experience in Herkimer,  we added more light on that side of our house–both to enhance the night vision of our cameras (and those of the surveillance drones) and to see if the Vargas’ reaction marked them as friend or foe, straight or bent. Nothing to fear, nothing to hide, right? This isn’t Westchester; in Herkimer, honest people welcome lights and cameras.

We bought another gentle LED light, of the sort we use to illuminate the drug and child traffickers’ sanctuary landlord Jay Smith gifted Herkimer. Smith’s Sanctuary’s on the other side of our house from Joe Handy house. It stopped the poison gas spraying of us from Smith’s side of our property. The gang doesn’t much traffic out of Smith’s Sanctuary anymore–they use the gently-lit parking lot for cookouts and an occasional attempt at an illegal fire. 

“The officer patiently listened to Kim Vargas and our other neighbors–representing the Joyce Barton Gang, the Stone-Sykes Gang and unaligned drug traffickers–then advised them that they had no legal right to darkness…

Joe Handy’s tenants prefer darkness to light:  Kim Vargas began harassing us from her porch as we were installing the new light. Had to ask the police to have her cease. She only shut it when threatened with arrest.  When the little light went live the next day, Kim Vargas wailed she was blinded and led a chorus of like-minded neighbors in streaming complaints and insults, all captured on our surveillance audio.

Kim Vargas promptly called the police to protect her family and friends from blinding. The responding officer patiently listened to she and her neighbors–representing the Joyce Barton Gang, the Stone-Sykes Gang and unaligned drug traffickers–then explained to them that they had no legal right to darkness.

Here’s a June video of the Vargases and their friends, still suffering in the blinding glare from out light on Kim Vargas’s porch, a few weeks after it was installed. The audio portion of the video features their wails of anguish from the night the light first went on in April.

1:00 – 1:44  Kim Vargas: “I’m callin’ the cops!” (NY doesn’t have a light nuisance law.)

1:45 – 1:48 Kim Vargas: “There’s a camera inside of that!” [The light.]

1:58  Neighbor Amanda across the street at 331 Pleasant. “They put my kids on YouTube.” If that’s Amanda West, her drug running 19 year-old daughter is in two of our posts. NY law permits video recording of any public or semi-public place.  “Nothing to hide, nothing to fear.”

2:22  Kim Vargas and Amanda: “Curtis…” Curtis Doolen aka Curtis Cool, now of Richfield Springs. Herkimer gang folk hero. A glad-handing drug and child trafficker free with the crack. Curtis is a previous tenant of 328 Pleasant Avenue. He’s known and revered by many of our neighbors. Heartening that our videos and posts of his criminal harassment of us got him jailed. We are grateful he bears us no ill will for helping make him Herkimer’s worldwide poster child of depraved criminality. (Couldn’t have done it without you, Curtis.)

2:37 “Shianne punched her.” Granny-slugging Shianne Hill, Herkimer’s other worldwide poster child of depraved criminality. Joyce Barton gang thug across the street from us at 333 Pleasant Avenue. Shianne, then 18, punched 64 year-old Linda Kaidan for crossing to the gang’s side of the street. The magistrate was unmoved by Shianne’s assertion that she was disabled and on SSI.

2:55  Amanda: “Red carpet…Broadway…” Curtis Doolen’s, aka Curtis Cool’s, zany criminal antics have been viewed on our blog and Herkimer Post’s YouTube channel by about 15,000 appalled people worldwide.  

3:55  Kim Vargas: “Fat old-young kid with no teeth who sits on their (our) front porch.” Our 39 year-old daughter sometimes stands on our front porch, when our neighbors haven’t sprayed it with pesticide. She has excellent teeth.

4:00 Amanda: “They (we) ain’t got no front curtains.” (True.) Kim Vargas: “That’s cause they’re takin’ pictures.” No. Thankfully picture taking is mostly automated. Sadly, viewing and editing is not.

5:29-6:45 Herkimer PD Officer Don Richards arrives in response to Kim Vargas’ 911 call about the blinding light.

5:20 Kim Vargas says she wants “…that light taken down! Bottom line!” Richards listens to chorus of  complaints from Kim Vargas and members of the drug trafficking Stone-Sykes Gang and the Joyce Barton Gang: “Blinded…blinded…No right…” Yadayada. Officer Richards speaks with me—he has an air of pastoral calm–and then tells Kim Vargas and our other neighbors that it’s a civil matter, i.e., they have no legal right to darkness. He leaves.

6:30 Whiny male neighbor, probably longtime Jay Smith tenant Shawn C. Thompson at 326 1/2 Pleasant Avenue, next to Kim Vargas’s, threatens to put anthrax in our mailbox. We’ve done what we can to highlight Thompson’s and his chums’ various criminal activities. In fact, we originally bought that light to better capture the nighttime faces of the parade of backpackers in and out of Thompson’s.

Poison Gas Attacks from Joe Handy’s Herkimer Thug House Yard

Our backyard overgrowth blocks our cameras’ views of probable gas attack points launched from Vargas’ yard. As I began trimming it, the Vargases immediately attacked.

Backyard overgrowth and Vargas’ tent city protect poison gas sprayers of our yard from our surveillance cameras.Ever since our much cursed light went on in April, our backyard been blasted late every night with pesticides. Poison gas attacks are how the murderous band of our drug and child trafficking neighbors try to drive out people they don’t like. We call it The Herkimer Howdy. Our Herkimer Howdy’s been ongoing for several years now, showered on us in volatilized high pressure streams. The poison’s invisible unless the gang screws up a handfogger’s settings. The pesticides are dispensed by handfogger from adjoining yards, like that of the Vargas’s, or from beneath passing vehicles with specialized dispensers tied into the vehicle’s electrical system, here modeled by the Joyce Barton gang across the street from us.

From the residue of the spray pattern, the attacks were and are coming from Joe Handy’s rental property, tenanted by the Vargases. Vegetation and a tent city erected by the Vargases along the fence line make for lots of cover and concealment along that fence. Our cameras are effectively blocked. We texted Joe Handy, asking for his help and permission to trim some of the overgrown near the fence on his side. He replied he’d come by and we’d talk, and to do nothing until then. Next day we heard him talking with Kim Vargas. He didn’t visit us.

A few days later, I started trimming the overgrowth on our side of the ancient fence. Joe Handy’s thuggish tenants were on high alert–Kim Vargas and her  brother-in-law immediately assaulted me.I was cursed, threatened with punching  and with having my teeth kicked in, and had coffee thrown in my face–this during a pandemic. The Vargas’s pitbull joined in. I called the police. Here’s the video.

Video Timeline – Kim Vargas -Harassment and Assault of 6.7.20 

 00:1-00:35 Our surveillance cam footage. No audio. Me hand trimming undergrowth in my yard at 330 Pleasant Ave.

00:40- 01:14 My bodycam footage begins. Audio. Kim Vargas, in yard at 328 Pleasant, confronts me, tells me to stop cutting “my tree”. I am not polite to bullies–she has a history of harassing us. I tell her to call the police if she has any issues with me. She was warned previously by police not to harass my wife and I as we worked on our property. (Driveway light installation. 4/5/20, Officers Crippen and Hill responded.)

01:15 – 02:07 Kim Vargas persists in harassing me. I ask her again to leave me alone and advise her she is bordering on criminal harassment. She does not break off. I try to continue working. Acrimonious exchange continues.

 02:07 Kim Vargas brother in-law  joins her in assaulting me with verbal abuse, physical threats and obscenities.

02:37 Kim Vargas’ pitbull menaces me, poking its snarling snout through a hole in the fence. I tell her to get her dog out of my yard or I’ll spray him. (Pepper spray.) Vargas responds that if I do, “I’ll knock your teeth down your throat.”

02:45 Kim Vargas’ brother-in-law throws coffee at me through hole in fence, spraying me in the face and also getting Vagas who says, “You hit me too.” Excellent view of both Vargases as harassment continues. Acrimonious exchange.

3:33 I call the police. Kim Vargas’ brother-in-law overhears call, scuttles into house, doesn’t come out until after police officer has left. 911 dispatch advises me to go into my house. I tell them I will be in yard asserting my rights, thank you.

5:14 Kim Vargas threatens to punch me in the face.

6:15 Kim Vargas calls her landlord, owner Joe Handy of Ft. Plain. Tells him many obvious lies.

9:48 – Herkimer PD Officer Jason Crippen arrives. Advises Kim Vargas of the law regarding tree trimming and camera and audio surveillance. She reacts angrily. Crippen cautions her. Kim Vargas accuses my wife of being a pedophile. End of bodycam footage.

13:19 – Our front yard surveillance clip: Police gone, brother-in-law Vargas thug comes out of hiding, paces the sidewalk in front of our home, returns to Vargas’ house. After Officer Crippen left, Kim Vargas went into the house and I resumed trimming.

14:44 – End Me trimming. Audio track: surveillance audio of Kim Vargas and her brother-in-law having a family discussion on the street.

Herkimer’s Dark Social Engineering and Joe Handy’s Herkimer Thug House

It’s obvious to us after six years of close observation that Herkimer’s 328 Pleasant Street’s a place of business, an example of dark social engineering which keeps decent, needy tenants from renting it, while staffing it with  traffickers and criminal harassers.  No matter whose name is on the deed, the pattern is clear and it leads to the illegal gangs that have so long profited from the misery they’ve brought to what was once a happy and prosperous village along the Mohawk.

Happily, the rapidly changing demographics of America are ringing the Herkimer gangs’ death knell. Upstate New York’s become a refuge, short on housing and long on need as folks pour in, driven by disease and climate change and the desire for a better life. Prices are soaring, construction is booming. Prosperity kills gangs and prosperity is at hand.

We’ve updated our Poisonings Log. Poison gas attacks have stepped up again, following arrests and an eviction for which we’re apparently held responsible. 

Herkimer Poisonings Log Updated

Hits: 327

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: 261

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.  

Herkimer homeowner blasted by poison spraying truck
“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: 176

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: 202

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.

New home security installation sparks poison gas attack during school bus pickups

Hits: 167

Linda J. Kaidan

I was remounting a security camera on the side of my house facing 334 Pleasant Avenue the other day when I was suddenly wreathed in toxic fumes from the vicinity of 334’s parking lot. As we’ve noted, several houses on the parking lot have long been home to Herkimer gangs trafficking drugs and kids. They and their allies typically spray us and our home daily with volatilized pesticides. This most recent poison gas attack during school bus pickups highlights the ongoing failure of local police to deal with this heinous terrorism.

Herkimer Domestic Terrorism Attacks Enter 21st Month

These terrorist attacks are now in their 21st month.  Local police remain baffled. State police are complacent. The pesticides used are odorless, colorless and dispensed using insecticide foggers mounted beneath specially modified vehicles. These weapons of domestic terrorism release a fast-moving toxic cloud in a two-story arch with a typical range of 60 feet. The school bus was within 30 feet of the attacking vehicle. The gas didn’t stop there.

Another Herkimer Poison Gassing Vehicle In Action

A review of our security footage showed a vehicle parked at 341 Eureka Avenue exiting the parking lot via the 334 driveway. The vehicle carried 3 small children and was driven by a woman. This attack occurred as a school bus on Pleasant Avenue at the base of the 334 driveway was boarding a child.  Here’s a video of the incident:

 Woman and  3 children from 341 Eureka Avenue exit 334 Pleasant Avenue parking lot in vehicle while I’m mounting a new camera.  As they pass I’m again sprayed with pesticide. A moment later, the school bus arrives and waits in front of 332-334 Pleasant Ave to pick up a young boy. The gas would have by then been in the street.

While I can’t prove that that vehicle was the spraying vehicle, there are no other credible suspects.

This poisoning has long been way out of hand  and is endangering many people besides the pesky nuisances who write Herkimerpost.com.

Above is a photo from an 11/6 surveillance video, which shows someone with a striking resemblance  to the poison vehicle driver gesticulating in protest at our security devices. She was apparently expressing heartfelt opinions to a man, perhaps Herkimer landlord Jay Smith, the owner of the lot and the houses it serves.  (Our neighborhood criminals previously complained to the Herkimer police about our backyard light and were told that New York doesn’t have a light nuisance law.)

Crime Fighting LED Lighting

We’re sprayed with poison gas several time a day from the direction of adjacent 334 Pleasant Avenue. 334 appears to be housing some new trafficking gang members following the disappearance of the Sykes gang’s Carrie Ann Bass and Stanley Sykes. We’ve illuminated the previously darkened portion of the 334 area from which seems to be the origin of the poison gas attacks. The contrast before and after the addition of the LED lighting is quite striking:

Likely source of poison gas attacks, 334 Pleasant Avenue, before installation of new daylight gentle LED lighting.

Likely source of poison gas attacks from 334 Pleasant Avenue following installation of our new daylight-gentle LED lighting.

Street lights with smart LED lighting are replacing traditional streetlights worldwide.  When LED tech is coupled with remote control, lighting efficiency and a greener energy profile can be achieved. A recent quote from Market Watch indicates “The Smart Street Lighting Market is a rapidly growing market and it is estimated to reach $39.0 billion by 2022″. I suggest that consternation regarding LED lighting has little to do with blinding light and much to do with negative impact on criminal activities. The reason we placed the new light where we did is because we suspect that poisonings are being launched from the area around 334 Pleasant Ave adjacent to the parking lot.

It is the responsibility of law enforcement agencies to protect our village from poison gas attacks which endanger our people, our water supply and our clean air. What country is this? These acts of terrorism must stop now.

No Herkimer Home Complete without A Gas Attacks Airlock

 This sparked an unrelenting and massive nighttime poison gas attack from the Sykes gang parking lot adjacent to us. (Earlier in the day, Stanley Sykes was heard to bellow that someone had “Fucked me up.”   This as his beloved red SUV was towed away.) 

The gas barrages began at around 8 pm, and  continued into the pre-dawn hours. Again an odorless pyretherin pesticide. The older surveillance camera we keep on the Sykes gang barracks rear at 334 Pleasant Avenue has wretched night vision. but its infrared optics  are great at illuminating gas, given just a little light, which the Sykes gang kindly provided  We’ve shown this useful effect in previous Sykes gang gas attack postings.

We haven’t seen this much chemical poison dispensed by the Sykes gang since their cascading gas attacks of last August, which sickened many along Pleasant Avenue and contaminated much of South Herkimer with a moving, poisonous mist.

Given the huge volume of gas dispensed last night,the barrages had to have involved either multiple hand foggers or agricultural pesticide equipment. Other homes were surely impacted. These charming old village homes are quite porous and  can be penetrated by a Syria-level chemical attack.  Most houses aren’t as hardened against vapors as ours.

We’re eapproaching our second year of poison gassings here along Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue. We’ve had about 50 now. They’re well-documented and apparently tolerated by authorities and ignored by Sykes’ landlord, Jay Smith, who owns both 334 Pleasant Avenue and 341 Eureka Avenue.

0935 – Cat Marley just ventured out for a bit of air in our driveway. A driveby gassing attack followed within 10 minutes. Only a spotter in 331 Pleasant Avenue would have seen Marley, who is a cagey cat. Unsurprisingly many houses around us have fallen vacant, and amid a housing shortage.

Can’t spot any open car windows coincident with the drivebys. Could the Sykes gang’s paymasters  have gone to the expense of outfitting vehicles with foggers affixed to the car undercarriages?

4/24/18

This is our first entry in our Herkimer Spring Gas Attacks log. Seems my posting of yesterday was not well liked by some of our criminal neighbors. (That would be the Stanley Sykes gang and its allies, billeted here on Pleasant Avenue. Our cameras catch some of their activities.)

We and much of Herkimer’s Pleasant Avenue were subjected to a series of poison gas attacks last night. Although we were the intended victims, the Usual Suspects dispensed gas from up the street, from the King Street side of Pleasant Avenue. Others were surely impacted.

The prevailing wind was from the west, spreading the gas down Pleasant Avenue

Multiple poisonous waves were dispensed–pesticides volatized with at least portable electric foggers. To keep off our cameras, criminals brazenly substituted volume for accuracy, staying out off camera range as they hosed the street with poison for hours.

A Series of Cascading Gas Attacks

This series of cascading attacks began at approximately 2330 on 4/23 and continued until about 0500 today. Attackers succeeded in creating an invisible pesticide cloud that took hours to fade.  Its effects were still discernible at 0700 as one walked west toward King Street from 330 Pleasant Avenue (us) past four houses before returning.  We wouldn’t have been the only house touched by the gas. The gas of the season still seems to be the Sykes gang’s favorite, a pyrethrin pesticide, judging from its effects, but the residue bore a chlorine odor.  Many pyrethrin compounds are odorless. (It wasn’t chlorine gas: had it been, people would be dead.)

Typical pyrethrin symptoms are asthmatic breathing, sneezing, nasal stuffiness, headache, nausea, loss of coordination, tremors, convulsions, facial flushing and swelling, and burning and itching sensations. Small children are especially vulnerable.

We haven’t experienced an attack as wanton and depraved as this since a mega poison gas attack of last August,  which affected much of South Herkimer, immersing it in a rolling fog of multiple pesticides one muggy summer’s night. It left behind sick people, dead cats and toxic yards.

Rather than choke the blog with multiple poisoning, we’ll do what we did during last year’s poison gas campaigns, updating this post  as needed and using it as a living document.

Off to wash my gas mask and have some medicinal cognac. (That military training stays with you.) 

 

Herkimer Poison Gassings Are Back

Hits: 76

Stephen Ames Berry

Herkimer poison gassings are back. Yesterday’s nice weather signaled the start of the neighboring Stanley Sykes gang’s spring poisoning offensive. They seem to have been provoked by our gardening in our rear and front yards–certainly this sparked some hard looks from their delivery folks in the adjacent parking lot of Jay Smith’s 334 Pleasant Avenue:

Morning Poison Gassings

The first attacks were in the morning from the west. They followed the usual pattern of an insecticide hand fogger dispensing an odorless pyrethrin mist from into our backyard, probably from within the circle noted on the map in a March  posting. As with previous such attacks, it was signaled by the Sykes gang vanishing into their Jay Smith rentals.

Afternoon Poison Gassing – The Hand Maid’s Revenge?

The second of attack of yesterday occurred while we were out, between 1500 and 1608.  We returned to find our driveway filled with poison gas. Shortly afterwards, a young woman who appeared to be the Herkimer Hand Maid was seen looking very pleased with herself, on the sidewalk between the empty lot at 327 Pleasant Avenue and 325 Pleasant Avenue. (The Hand Maid was “referred to services” by the Herkimer Police following her death threat of  9/17/17 against Herkimer Post editor Linda Kaidan, who’d refused to close her bedroom window when ordered to by the Hand Maid. Who was in front of 331.)

Poison Gassing Spotter 331 Pleasant Avenue

Many previous poison gas attacks have been triggered merely by our opening our front door. We assume there’s a Sykes gang affiliated spotter across the street in 331  Pleasant Avenue; it’s the only occupied  house within line of sight of our doorway. The folks on the first floor of 331 are just folks. The 2nd floor, though, has long been tenanted by a known Sykes gang associate, who’s also seen with the Creepy Stalking Meth heads, and the Herkimer Hand Maid. Given the numerous police visits to his apartment ,he’s probably no stranger to the law.

I’m working on completing a major project today but will go through the camera feeds later. 

Herkimer Gas Attacks Blossoming With Spring

Herkimer March 2018 Gas Attacks

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.

Driveby poison gas attacks from Pleasant Avenue: none noted since the 2/27/18 attack reported by Linda Kaidan in her post.

Yeah, not many yet. Endured about 50 last  year. How many poison gas attacks are acceptable?  We expect more gas attacks as the weather gets nicer and we’re outside more often, improving our security and expanding our wealth of  Herkimer crime YouTube offerings.
