Eminent Domain Outrage In CA

This is absolutely beyond the pale:

A year after Los Angeles seized three acres from a private company to construct a public building, a city councilman wants to sell the land to another private firm for a commercial development.

Both companies are furniture manufacturers. But executives with the company that would buy the land have political connections and have made $17,600 in campaign contributions to key city leaders.
There are many more details in the article, but that's about all you really need to know. While I realize that 200+ years has probably dulled the psychological impact, I find it hard to believe that abuses of eminent domain can be much more tolerable than the things Britain was doing to her colonies here in America. Absolutely, without question, abuses of eminent domain must not be allowed to stand. I truly hope that the people of Los Angeles come together and fight in the same spirit as those on the east coast have.
