Marvin John Heemeyer demolished multiple buildings with a modified bulldozer in Granby, Colorado on June 4, 2004.
He was in a fight with his town over fines for violating city health ordinances related to dumping sewage from his business into public spaces.
He secretly created a modified Komatsu D355A bulldozer that was reinforced with layers of steel, bulletproof lexan, and 5000-PSI Quikrete concrete. It had three gun-ports, fitted with a .50 caliber rifle, a .308 semi-automatic rifle, and a .22LR rifle.
He demolished the town hall, mayor’s house, and damaged 11 other buildings. The attack lasted for over two hours. He committed suicide before the police could get to him.
And that’s one man that took on the system. Sure – it ended tragically.
Just imagine if people worked together – how beautiful this planet could be.
Are you sure dumping waste would be beautiful?
Ahh – you see the “twist” I put in my comment.
I took something negative and made it (uhhh) better.
One persons trash today is another person’s trash tomorrow. LoL
I was going in a different direction with my comment… but tried to make it positive.
