Another legend of an Irishman driving his cement truck into the gates of government buildings some months ago
Perhaps this American was part Irish too. He certainly had his "Irish up"
Local resident and former muffler shop owner Marvin Heemeyer had finally had enough of being pushed around and told to go to hell by local politicians and public servants, who refer to themselves as "public officials" — the people in charge! The politically correct spin is being applied quite liberally by most of the news media...
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.
