Court: Homes can be taken for private development

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor argued that cities should not have unlimited authority to uproot families, even if they are provided compensation, simply to accommodate wealthy developers.

"Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random," O'Connor wrote. "The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms."

Sad... just sad. I'm not even sure that I live in America anymore when I read shit like this and Flag Desecration amendments.
