David Theobald, of New Zealand’s Axemen, DROVE HIS GODDAMN MAZDA into the Christchurch Inland Revenue building, where Theobald had worked as a taxman for 25 years. Citing concealment of workplace bullying and incompetent management as his motives, Theobold made sure no people were in harm’s way and then smashed through the glass doors of the office’s foyer.
Theobald is out on bail but has received a very intimidating letter from his employer’s human resources department. It reads, “Information has come to my attention which indicates that you may have intentionally driven a car through Inland Revenue’s Christchurch building … I am concerned that your conduct may be inconsistent with the Code of Conduct.”
The Axemen have a new record out on Siltbreeze and are hereby nominated for the Tripwire badass of the decade award.
