Literally pooping on my plants!

I have several large beetles on each tomato plant. The leaves started developing dark spots, then turn yellow and die off. Today I noticed all the bugs on the plants and they are "literally" pooping all over my plants and tomatoes!

Where the "poop" sits on the tomatoes it will develop a dark mark almost resembling a burn mark. I have already been battling stink bugs all summer, and just when we thought we were in the clear, these diabolical suckers come along! Please, someone tell me what these are and how to get rid of them!
