There is a huge debate here in Lakewood, Ohio on whether a controversial plan for a new mall should go ahead using eminent domain to buy people’s homes. It was just featured on 60 Minutes. Here are some local sites to learn more / leave comments about this subject:
SOME OF MY RANDOM THOUGHTS:
I don’t want to support a government that takes away people’s homes.
I say, send the developers back to the drawing board.
Partial West End development – okay!
“Legal theft” of private property – no way!
Is there a monetary benefit, sure.
Is it morally right, NO!
