KILLDOZER I have tried everything to move on with life? Obviously there no Justice for me after 12,years
Go Marvin, a man of action, just don’t piss him off!
52 year old welder Marvin Heemeyer lived in Grunbee Colorado fixing
vehicle mufflers. His small repair shop was located near a concrete
factory called Mountain Park. To Marvin and his neighbors' horrors, the
owners of Mountain Park decided to expand the factory, forcing the
people living near-by to sell their land to Mountain Park.
Sooner or later the factory's neighbors gave up, except for Marvin.
Having tried every way possible, the owners of the factory failed to
acquire his land. However all the surrounding land was now owned by
the factory, which resulted in Marvin's shop getting cut off from the
rest of the world.
Marvin tried everything in his powers to restore justice. Obviously, the
city council and other politicians of the state were on the factory
owners' evil capitalist side.
It's not surprising that Marvin lost the case to the owners, in court.
After that Marvin was also given a $2500 fine for not having a
connected sewer line. When paying the fine, Marvin attached a note to
the check and ticket that read "Cowards".
He was just one of those who would not give up.
On the 4th of June, 2004 during a rainy day Marvin rolled out into
town on a bulldozer reinforced with metal sheets.

the local paper and other buildings belonging to the mayor.
Having tried to stop Heemeyer, the police finally understood that
Marvin's bulldozer was unstoppable. More than 200 bullets were fired
at the vehicle, causing no harm at all. The police force then decided to
battle the titan with hand grenades. Once again their efforts were
useless. Later a vehicle rigged with explosives was put in Marvin's path
to destruction; it also had little luck in stopping him.
Marvin returned fire using two semi-automatic .23 caliber rifles and a
single .50 caliber semi-automatic rifle through specially designed holes

At first the police officers were too afraid to approach the thing. Trying
to get Marvin out of his fortress, they had to make a hole in the armor.
When they finally got through, Marvin was already dead. He wasn't
going to get into the enemy's hands alive.
Despite the great damage to property (13 buildings were destroyed,
most requiring hundreds of thousands of dollars to be replaced), no
one besides Heemeyer was injured; observers noted that Heemeyer
appeared to go out of his way to avoid injury to bystanders.

Later an investigation was carried out. It was discovered that Marvin's
creation was so strong that even a powerful artillery blow would only
cause minor damage. The bulldozer was totally covered in sheet metal,
with each piece being at least half an inch thick. In places, the
vehicle's armor was over one foot thick, consisting of concrete
sandwiched between sheets of steel to make ad-hoc composite armor.

Marvin packed the interior with supplies such as water, food, ammo
and a gasmask. To control the killdozer, Marvin used 3 monitors and a
couple of video cameras. In an event of the cameras being blinded by
dust, they were fitted with air compressors.
It took Marvin 2 months to design the Killdozer, and according to
sources, 1.5 years to build it.
"He was a fine lad", - said the people that were close to Marvin. "They
shouldn't have made him angry". "If he was your friend, he was your
best friend. And if he was your enemy, well he was your worst and
most dangerous enemy." - said Marvin’s friends.
