Neighbor 'goes nuts,' destroys several homes with bulldozer (Washington State)
KOMO TV (Seattle) / Various ^ | May 10, 2013

Posted on 05/10/2013 3:19:54 PM PDT by Stoat

PORT ANGELES, Wash. -- Witnesses say a man upset with his neighbors went on a rampage with a bulldozer-like piece of logging machinery in a Port Angeles neighborhood, damaging four homes and knocking out power to thousands of people.

The Clallam County Sheriff's Office says it does not appear that anyone was injured during the incident that happened just after noon Friday along Pioneer Road. The suspect was arrested.

"A person with a piece of heavy equipment that was very upset, struck (four) homes in the area and also a truck," said Jim Borte with the Clallam County Sheriff's Department.

Keith Haynes lives near one of the damaged homes and told the Peninsula Daily News the man took a piece of logging equipment called a skidder and "just went nuts." 

Haynes said a woman inside one of the homes escaped unharmed, and the other home was unoccupied. Haynes said the houses were demolished.

Haynes said a new Ford truck also was damaged in the incident.

“It was like a war zone,” Haynes, a former law enforcement officer who has lived in that neighborhood for two years, told the paper.

Time to require a background check for bulldozers and limit them to 7 somethings or other.

It’s time to develop plans for 3-D printed bulldozers for when they ban them.

I knew of a man that had a wrecker service business and his daughter’s boyfriend beat her up so bad, she ended up in hospital. Well...this man found the dude’s truck at some bar but could not find the dude, so he hooked up his truck and dragged it up and down the highway until it was literally shredded.....lol.

damaging four homes

Ok, that's four.

Haynes said a woman inside one of the homes escaped unharmed, and the other home was unoccupied.

Well, that accounts for two of the four.

Did the other two just evaporate or something?

This occurred about 4 miles from my house. My power was out for about an hour.

I know this lowlife jerk and his family. Word is....he was upset because he couldn’t get help for his meth problems. Well, he is going to get all the help he can handle now. LOL

But for the grace of God, nobody was killed in during this tantrum.

It's not the guns. It's not the hammers. It's not the knives. It's not the baseball bats. It's not the bombs. It's not the bulldozers.

IT'S THE PEOPLE, STUPID. "Gun control" is something only dumbass Nazis do. It should never be allowed to happen in America.

True. But thats a dozer in the pic. Look at the blade. Granted, Dozers are used/rigged to skid too. But that’s a dozer.

Reminds me of the guy who armor plated a bulldozer and then rampaged through Granby, Colorado, smashing businesses and houses connected to those he thought had slighted him, even the town hall. Nobody could get to him in there. He inadvertently trapped himself in the basement of a building he took out and then killed himself.

This jerk made his living in doing low end logging jobs. Most of his equipment is junk.

FWIW, this happened about 4 miles from my house and I have known this meth freak for decades.

We had a couple like that back in the Adirondacks before the Enviros put 99% of every logging business OUT of business.

One more thing. I might wait a few days and call his lawyer to see if I can get a steal of a deal for that machine. I’d have fun with it on my property and then quick sell it. If I get it, I’ll take better pics and post ‘em.

I love playing in the dirt. ;>)

I think that guy always planned to kill himself though, because he welded himself into the contraption, with no way out.

You just have to shock out the electric blue alien entity that jumped out of the rock into the D-9 blade and took over the whole bulldozer.

But, hiding in a corrugated pipe is a really, really, really bad idea when the D-9 is after you.

See, it is really simple.
