Marvin Heemeyer: Rage and the machine

Play Music



When I heard the story of Marvin Heemeyer I was drawn to the dedication with which he pursued revenge. For most, anger causes outbursts, but with Marvin it was a long and methodical process. I came to understand that to a lesser degree we all may be allowing rage and resentment to slowly burn within us. In bringing Marvin’s story to listeners, I hoped that they may more easily recognize the same patterns that led to Marvin’s rampage and death.
