    A man in an armor plated D-9 Caterpillar bulldozer is tearing down the town. He has damaged several buildings including the 7-11, library, city hall, and flattened the newspaper office to the ground.

    He is armed and has been shooting at police officers and propane tanks in the area. It is said that he may be using a machinegun.

    The police have been unable to stop him. I called the Sheriff's office and told them to find someone with a .50 cal Barrett. She said that they had tried that to no avail. I told her to have them shoot only at the treads as if they can break one, they will stop him. I also told here that a very effective weapon is a Molotov Coctail. She didn't know what that is so I explained it to her and told her it would stop a military tank.

    They finally have a feed from a helicopter and he got stuck in a building. They don't know any status other than that.

    I sure hope thuis guy doesn't have a legal machinegun registered to him. We won't hear the end of it.

    The SWAT team is crawling all over the thing which is stuck in a building. He blew the radiator and it died.

    They just emptied a canister of pepper spray into one of the gunports.

    How can nobody in Granby have a .50?! We had, what, like 30 of them at the RMFCSA in Cheyenne Wells a couple weeks ago!

    Tear gas into the ports sounds like an excellent plan.

    I find it very hard to believe noone has so much as a 30-06 loaded with AP rounds....


    This is beyond belief.

    [​IMG]Tracks are exposed.

    He has welded himself inside the cab of this thing but they say he is alive. They are concerned that the thing could be booby-trapped.

    They already had one of those stolen and flown into a mountain in CO. The four 250# bombs are still missing.

    Huh.

    I wondered when we'd hear from Rick Stanley again.

    The governor is on his way to Granby to get some face time. I can hardly wait to see what type of stupid legislation comes of this.

    BAN BULLDOZERS!!!! ITS FOR THE CHILDREN!!!! :neener:

    The A-10 thing was around the time of Timothy McVay's trail, which IIRC was here in Denver. Several folks I worked with at the time expeted the A-10 to come screaming out of the hills all guns blazing, aiming for the court house (this before the wreckage was found).

    I can't wait to hear the back story on this chap.

    Just a few years ago, this guy was in the trailing aircraft in a four aircraft formation flying to a practice bomb run. Somewhere, he peeled off for parts unknown and disappeared. They later found the wreckage of the aircraft, and the body, but they never found the four 250# bombs he was carrying.

    He started from Davis-Monthan in AZ and ended up in CO.

    I called the FBI and asked them if they had yet considered that the G-8 summit (I believe they were the G-7 at that time) was to be held in Denver in two weeks. The guy said "No, I don't think so."

    I told him that this thing was fully armed, had four 250# bombs and ammo that could penetrate several blocks of buildings. I also told him that even if they had full air support waiting that the chances of stopping this thing would be nearly impossible; but that is how it is whan an aircraft is billed as "By the time you see it, you're dead." I also told him that it is a STOL aircraft that could easily land on any runway that could handle a crop duster and could be in a hanger anywhere in CO.

    He said he would pass the information but he didn't sound real comfortable.

    Sheesh, they could've called Fort Carson and borrowed a few Apaches.

    Cat D-5 versus a burst of 30 mike-mike? That'll leave a mark. If that doesn't work, laser-designate his butt and plant a Hellfire on top of him.

    *** is/was goin thru this guy's mind!? He has to have totally flipped and lost it .. tho it seems had planned this for some time judging by armor mod's etc.

    No way will he live .... he'll either stay put and starve, or be smoked/gassed ..... or someone will come up with something like a shaped charge to plant on the side. Few yards of detcord would quickly get this thing finalized.

    It's the black helicopters he's waiting for.

    See, he must have been wearing his tin-foil hat way too tight.

    I fasten my very loosely. :cool:

    Stand by for the 2005 ABB (Assault Bulldozer Ban).

    In addition to banning Caterpillar D-9s outright, all semi-automatic bulldozers with a blade width greater than {fill in blank} will be banned if also equipped with any of the following options:

    * Armor plating
    * Gun ports
    * Fixed or removeable armaments
    * Magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds.
    * Laser guidance systems.
    * Night vision devices

    Is it me or do they seem to be drawing this out? Even steel plating isn't any match for what a 14 year old can come up with using household chemicals.

    This is ridiculous.... SWAT teams can't do it, the police can't do it, so he's sitting there? Great, that'll work. :rolleyes:

    Seriously though, a LSC isn't that hard to make and they should've finished with this by now.
