** [[MadBomber Paxton Petty]] plants mines in public places and enjoys watching people get blown to pieces. During UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar, he planted mines in the local children's playgrounds to eliminate potential ChildSoldiers, for which he was arrested and sent to a military prison. After escaping Alcatraz, he starts to plant more mines around San Francisco (including in elementary school yards) to kill as many random civilians as possible. He [[LandMineGoesClick traps Agent Hauser on one of these mines]], but modifies the bomb in such a way that the bomb disposal expert who rescues Hauser would inevitably be killed during the dismantling procedure no matter what they did.
