Marvin John Heemeyer, The Legend & His Killdozer (Like The Wrath Of An Awakened Saxon)

We probably need a million men like Heemeyer with a million ‘killdozers’ to take out the trash.

Marvin John Heemeyer (October 28, 1951 — June 4, 2004) was an American skilled welder and owner of an automobile muffler shop. On June 4, 2004, frustrated over a failed zoning dispute, Heemeyer plowed his homemade armored bulldozer into the town hall, a former mayor’s home and other buildings in small-town Granby, Colorado. When the bulldozer’s radiator and hydraulic system failed, he killed himself with a shotgun.

“The Wrath of the Killdozer.”

Half way good synopsis:

Like this or not….this man was pushed OVER the edge and this is precisely what is happening now.. Thanks for tipping me on this story, Chris. I forgot about it

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

  1. Nice. Need lots and lots of john heemeyers that dont take their own lives and together push to the end.

  2. Shhh… we don’t want them “controlling” bulldozers the same way they “control” guns. I think that drastic action like this is appropriate for people who are terminally ill; they’re going to die anyway, so they might as well go out in glory.
