Today is the 19th anniversary of Marvin Heemeyer’s one-man war against an oppressive bureaucracy in Granby, Colorado. The name may not ring a bell but a picture of his weapon of choice will.
Yes, that heavily “modified” Komatsu D355A is what became known as “Killdozer”. It was the instrument he used to destroy 13 buildings in Granby including the town hall. You may disagree with what he did and you may disagree on the details of the story. You might even thing he was an anti-government deluded lunatic who inspires “right wing preppers.”
However, Mr. Heemeyer did leave us with a great quote in notes that were found after his self-inflicted death.
I was always willing to be reasonable until I had to be unreasonable. Sometimes reasonable men must do unreasonable things.
