The BIZARRE TALE of “KILLDOZER”! and Marvin Heemeyer

Stolen from some guy on facebook:

Today is a special day. June 4th 2017 marks the 13th anniversary of the Killdozer’s rampage through Granby Colorado.

Sit down kids and let me tell you a tale, about a reasonable man driven to do unreasonable things.

Marvin Heemeyer was a man who owned a muffler shop in Granby Colorado. The city council ordained to approve the construction of a concrete factory in the lot across from Marvin’s shop. In the process this blocked the only access road to the muffler shop. Marvin petitioned to stop the construction to no avail. Petitioned to construct a new access road, and even bought the heavy machinery to do so himself. Denied.

The concrete factory went up in disregard to the ramifications on Marvin’s business. To add insult to injury, the factory construction disconnected the muffler shop from the city sewage lines. An indifferent city government then chose to fine Marvin for this.

His business and livelihood were in ruin. Rather than lie down and die, Marvin chose to fight back. Over the course of a year and a half Marvin secretly outfitted the bulldozer he bought to save his business with three foot thick steel and concrete armor, camera systems guarded with bulletproof glass.

On June 4th 2004 Marvin Heemeyer lowered the armored shell over top of himself, entombing himself inside the Killdozer to make his last stand.

He burst fourth from the walls of his muffler shop and straight into the concrete factory that ruined his business. Over the course of the next several hours Marvin drove his Killdozer through 13 buildings owned by those officials that had wronged him, including the city council building itself.

Swat teams swarmed the dozer, but it proved immune to small arms fire and even explosives. Another piece of heavy machinery was even brought out to fight the Killdozer, but it too fell to the dozers righteous fury.

In the end, Marvin’s Killdozer became trapped in one of the buildings it was built to destroy. Marvin chose to take his life, the only life he took that day.

Today we celebrate Killdozer day and Marvin Heemeyer, the last great American folk hero. A man driven to the brink who chose to fight back against an indifferent system.

From notes left behind after his passing: “I was always willing to be reasonable until I had to be unreasonable. Sometimes reasonable men must do unreasonable things.”

That guy was legendary. Awesome destruction.JPG

Only shame in this is that he died instead of the city officials.

This a million times.

Corruption is the worst kind of evil.

Happy killdozer day y’all. May we learn a lesson about how far a man can be pushed before he breaks, and make sure that we are ready for similar resistance before our breaking points.

Honestly didn’t know a lot of this. Thanks for sharing.

Man I don’t know how I feel. The reporters were actively trying to keep everyone from jumping to conclusions. They had dignity for their job. Just seeing this they’re on a different level especially when compared to today’s news they’d all be digging into the private affairs of him and his family/friends yelling names for the sake of it.



[–] EdSnowden 13 points (+13|-0) 4 hours ago 

My boss is from that area of Colorado, he said the locals were 100% behind him.



[–] juicedidwtc 12 points (+12|-0) 4 hours ago 

imagine a world where everyone has the same spirit as this man to stand up for what’s right… no matter what



[–] Morbo 4 points (+4|-0) 1.9 hours ago 

In that world there would be no need to stand up for what is right because their would be no one doing wrong.

Killdozer has stayed towards the top of the list of my favorite things ever since I first heard the story years ago. RIP hero.



[–] MightBeCanadian 7 points (+7|-0) 6 hours ago 

I wish I saved the newspaper article I had about this



[–] NeoGoat 5 points (+5|-0) 4 hours ago 

Wow. I’d not heard of this.



[–] PeaceSeeker 5 points (+5|-0) 5 hours ago 

Thanks for sharing. I remember this story. Very sad, but not surprising.

Even bulldozed city hall………..I fucking love it !!!! RIP Marvin.

Let this be a warning to all the dumb niggers out there that are calling for the end of whitey. This is what happens you piss white people off. This was just one man, now imagine what would happen if all of them decided to take matters into their own hands.



[–] Goathole 4 points (+4|-0) 3 hours ago 

Sometimes you just need to kill a few motherfuckers.



[–] SocratesOP 6 points (+6|-0) 2.6 hours ago 

he didnt kill anyone but himself

I remember this. This is up there with the BofA robbery that the guys showed up in full armor and just blasted everything.



[–] Broc_Lia [S] 9 points (+9|-0) 3 hours ago 

In badassery sure, but this is pure justice. He didn’t do it for any personal gain, just to make sure the people who screwed him didn’t profit from doing so.



[–] go1dfish 2 points (+2|-0) 1.3 hours ago 

Any other similar events you can think of?

I really like the story of the Killdozer because he didn’t kill anyone though, and I think it’s a lot more relatable and folk-heroesque as a result.

That’s beautiful man, just beautiful.



[–] Birddirt 4 points (+4|-0) 4 hours ago 

holy shit! this is my first time heating this. GOD BLESS HIS SOUL! I will tell this man’s tale to much children one day



[–] PsyOp 3 points (+3|-0) 2.4 hours ago 

I remember that…poor guy was driven insane by the American dream. If Marvin were smart he would have bided his time and learned how to pick locks…then he could have entered the homes of the people responsible for his plight and slit their throats as they slept.



[–] ICweiner 3 points (+3|-0) 2.5 hours ago 

I remember watching this on the news as a kid and asking my parents what he was doing this for.

My dad basically said, “this is what happens when a man gets to the end of his rope” and didn’t have much more to say besides that.

It didn’t take long for it to sink in what he really meant by that.





[–] behindthetoilet 5 points (+5|-0) 3 hours ago 

Those reporters were on a different level actually keeping people from jumping to conclusions and keeping names out until official police reports were made. Today they’d say names just to say names and spill anything they can on them and their families and friends.

Perfect example of what you are talking about.

What journalistic integrity sounds like.YouTube



[–] Chiefpacman 2 points (+2|-0) 58 minutes ago 

This reminds me of the guy who drove his plane into the IRS building in Austin Texas.

A goddamn hero



[–] Broc_Lia [S] 0 points (+0|-0) 16 minutes ago 

Never heard of that. Thanks.



[–] FreeBreivik 2 points (+2|-0) 2.1 hours ago  (edited 2.1 hours ago)

I wish he’d have surrendered in the end. He didn’t murder anybody. Maybe he could’ve gotten a second chance eventually.



[–] bikergang_accountant 2 points (+2|-0) 2.3 hours ago 

Don’t mess with an honest man.



[–] WaterT 2 points (+2|-0) 2.3 hours ago 

I will tell his tale to everyone I can.



[–] Voopin__Voopin 0 points (+0|-0) 37 minutes ago 

thank you so much for this.

I’d never heard of it. RIP.

Here’s to the killdozer!



[–] Whitemail 0 points (+0|-0) 1.5 hours ago 

Of course the TV news and newspapers have to say he was crazy, unreasonable, and eeeebil to cover up for big business and government corruption.



[–] ZeroPrime 0 points (+0|-0) 1.9 hours ago 

Now if only you had men like that left you wouldn’t be heading straight for re-education camps in 8 years.

I have no intention of going to any camps.

Heemeyer was a true American Hero. we need more people like him right now. however, too many decades of good times have made most men weak and pussified.
