WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A city can take a person's home or business for a development project designed to revitalize a depressed local economy, a divided U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday in a decision that could have nationwide impact.
By a 5-4 vote, the high court upheld as constitutional the taking by New London, Connecticut, of 15 properties belonging to nine residents or investment owners for a project to complement a nearby research facility by the Pfizer Inc. drug company.

This could and hopefully start a revolution in the US. Today I believe, the many cities started drawing up plans of attack to drive out their low-income, poor and Non-Whites. LIKE SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA. They can deny it all they want, it WILL happen there first and the most.
I use to Live in San Diego, and they've done it before and now they can fully do it!
What will happen in San Diego in a year or so, The city council will probably annouce plans to build something huge in the area between Downtown and Barrio Logan and into Barrio Logan. It's low-income and mostly Hispanic. And It's flat. Unlike going north from Downtown, it goes up a hill (Banker's Hill and Hillcrest).
They'll eventually go to the wrong area, and people put up a physical resistance. I hope us Americans have enough balls to put up a fight against our own government.
