KILLDOZER - The True Story of the Colorado Bulldozer Rampage
And so it is that I examine the story of the Killdozer, a menacing machine that destroyed my town and which set the tone for the post-truth America in which we live today.
Marv Heemeyer demolished my business, razed my town and nearly killed me as he rampaged through Granby, Colorado, on June 4, 2004. He was unstoppable in his menacing homemade tank, an 85-ton armored bulldozer with three weapons — one of them a .50 caliber sniper rifle — mounted in the impregnable steel-enshrouded cab. Gun-toting sheriff’s deputies and state troopers futilely followed and fired repeatedly at the tank, their bullets ricocheting off the earth-shaking behemoth. The tank looked like a robot rover from some dark planet sent to wreak havoc on mankind. He destroyed 13 buildings, squashed cars and fired his weapons at police and his perceived enemies. He even tried to blow up the town.
