US Spy Agency To Demolish Low Income Housing

This week it was announced that the US National Geospatial-Intelligence agency is moving its western headquarters from the southern portion of Saint Louis, Missouri to an area in the north of the city (archived). Much of the chosen site is vacant land that was once home to failed the Pruitt–Igoe public housing, but in order to fully accommodate the spy facility a number of happily inhabited homes will be taken through eminent domain and demolished. Certain quirks of the neighborhood and their affect on property values mean that affected home owners will be unable to replace their commandeered housing with anything comparable when they are compensated according to their homes "fair market value" as is traditional in eminent domain cases. It turns out the property development tactics of Hussein Bahamas aren't all that different from those of serial scammer and bankruptcy artist Donald Trump-Clinton.
