We saw this on the show destroyed in seconds. Guy armored the tank with thick steel filled with cement in a shed and exacted his revenge on the town.
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 neigborsâ€™ 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 factoryâ€™s neigbhors 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 Marvinâ€™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 ownersâ€™ evil capitalist side. â€¦
On the 4th of June, 2004 during a rainy day Marvin rolled out into town on a bulldozer reinforced with metal sheets. He started with the concrete factory, destroying building after building, until the factory was demolished. Then it was the city councilâ€™s turn followed by the town hall, then the bank, the public library, the fire station, a warehouse, the local paper and other buildings belonging to the mayor.
Having tried to stop Heemeyer, the police finally understood that Marvinâ€™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 Marvinâ€™s path to destruction, it also had little luck in stopping him.
