In an act of pure insane rage a Colorado man, after losing a bitter dispute with city officials, takes his revenge with a Bulldozer. In his rampage through the streets of this small town, buildings were damaged, along with the Mayor's home...

GRANBY, Colo. A man who lost two bitter battles with town officials plowed an armor-plated bulldozerinto the town hall, a former mayor's home and at least five other buildings before the machine ground to a halt in the wreckage of a warehouse, authorities said.
No injuries were reported in the rampage Friday, but officials declined to comment on the condition of the bulldozer driver, identified by the town manager as muffler shop owner Marvin Heemeyer.

Heemeyer was still inside the bulldozer's cab early Saturday. City officials said he was angry over a zoning dispute and fines from city code violations at his business.

Authorities detonated three explosions and fired at least 200 rounds against the heavy steel plates welded to the bulldozer. The first two detonations failed; the results of the third were not immediately known....

A bulldozer? does this qualify as a WMD?

What a day, what a world!

Some people have really bad days, some of us can deal with it, Others take action!

I don't know if I would call this insane rage. He had to work a long time to armour up that D9, gun turret with flaps, put a lot of thought into this, and he only went after certain buildings.

I did see it on the news here today in OZ. What a strange thing is going on the minds of people---->" too many action movies"

He even did prepare his bulldozer 3 month ago to fulfill his rage. It;s a pretty long time to hold on to such emotions. Outragous things are happening these days.

3 explosions and 200 rounds.... too bad he didn't get a job armoring the Humvees for our guys in Iraq.

This guy must have been a total A-Team freak. Didnt hurt anyone (physically) except himself and showed in an impressive way what he thinks about this weird world. Not a bad job...

Here is another version of the story:

While most news media has reported that some unidentified witnesses said that Heemeyer was firing shots form his homemade tank, a D9 Caterpillar bulldozer covered in armor plating and concrete, other witnesses who were less than 100 feet from the 53 ton vehicle say that Heemeyer never fired a shot, that only police and sheriff's deputies were firing. Certain facts remain indisputable: No weapons or guns have been produced, least of all any kind of a .50 caliber weapon, and no one was hurt or injured during the 2 to 3 hour melee, save for Marvin Heemeyer, who was found dead inside of the cab of the vehicle at 2:00 AM Saturday morning, after SWAT and sheriff's deputies spent an hour using a cutting torch and 3 separate blasts with military high explosives, to gain entry through the top of the make-shift tank

Yeah, Yeah, I know it's Rense...........
Not everything on the site is false. Just another side of the story.
