Wow... so this is the new "Making a Murderer" on Netflix except the cast of characters is a lot more palatable. We have the bad guy- who turns out to be a really honest , hard working, smart man. And the "good guys" who are liars and corrupt and power hungry. Jealous.

This is sooo enormously obvious to me. Although they tried soo hard to make it seem different. Marv for all his steaming anger- at least showed a consistency. He broke up with his girlfriend because she lies about smoking. His story doesn't change and is filled with details, details that would fade with time unless someone was obsessed with them. Lies don't hold up over time. They just don't.

His story makes too much sense. A guy without any prior history of mental illness, violence, issues with people - Marv had a good life and was loved by his friends. His friends that STILL live in this same town. With all these people who are corrupted and lying ( which is also very obvious) His friends have a motive to support the most powerful wealthiest people in town now. It's obvious that money meant nothing to him. He wanted to build .. he was a welder. He was a builder. He wanted to build his business. He wanted to build fair and square. He wasn't ever supported to do that. To us, it seems crazy that after he fought so hard to just keep the business and land he bought fair and square, he wouldn't just sell it to make a profit. But we don't understand that selling that land was a position of being bent over - they did everything in their power to get him to a place where he had no other options . In the film you see them all validate that he was crazy because he wouldn't sell his property for a profit. There is also a line where one of the guys who did this to him, said "We never did anything to prevent him from working and making his business happen" But that's not true. A court of law prevented him from operating his business. Unless he spent all the money to build the sewer that he couldn't build because the guy had bought the property next to his and refused to let him hook up through it. It's like no one heard that. I guess when people watch Films they just watch without retaining any information. It's right now this is what is happening. The last thing they heard is the last thing they hear.

Unfortunately in this situation, unless you hear everything you're going to hear it wrong.

Personally I think Marv probably made the "good ol boys" of Granby CO jealous. They were just jealous. Who is this guy who has successful business and the hottest girl in town? And he bought the property we weren't willing to pay for ? That's all it took. People - especially people that are used to getting their way; and this family was. They were the wealthiest people , their dad was the mayor, they were on the town counsel and never had to hear no for an answer. Till they met Marv. Marv obviously detested dishonesty. He detested that he didn't have a fair and square playing field. Because he would have won. He knew that. They had to cheat and had to all work together to make his life awful and unbearable. To make him lose. It makes me mad.. because you know - WE KNOW - that if those two ugly brothers were to say we don't want to hook in to your sewage plant( which their dad was president of) they wouldn't have too. Come on people! See the forest through the trees! I guess what makes me really mad is that these jerks got away with what they did to Marv... because he bulldozed the town, they come off like they were the good guys and Marv was crazy. Yeah right.... sorry. You don't just go crazy after living a life as a fully functional adult and successful at that. These guys drove him to it and if you ask me they should be held responsible all of them. But they're all liars and they are all counting on us not keeping up with the details of the case and just trusting that Marv is a nutcase because he tore the town down. Sorry. TEAM MARV.
