122. well, if *you* don't think so, i'm sure it won't happen. even though the people running your city

have expressly said that's the plan: to condemn homes & pay the owners market value.

but now that they know *you* "don't think it will happen," i'm sure they'll rewrite their plans.


lol. they don't give a damn about anyone living in a home valued at $2K. those people are powerless & they'll run right over them unless a lot of people get pissed about it & make a stink.

*you're* not going to do anything about it but think nice thoughts, so they're going to get railroaded, because no one in power cares what you "think" either.

Local eminent domain attorney Alan Ackerman says Mayor Dave Bing's ambitious plan to demolish blighted properties and relocate residents from desolate to stable neighborhoods is not only constitutional, it is necessary...

The city would be required to pay homeowners 125 percent of their home's value, give them time to move and provide other relocation benefits.

median home value in detroit = $7500

where do you think someone's going to be able to buy a house for $9375, eh?

They're going to be on the streets or living with a family member if they've got any.

But it's just poor people, so it doesn't matter if you steal their property. So long as the home *you* spent *your* "hard-earned money" on benefits.
