Actually, we can. The city has the right of eminent domain, so we can take private property with compensation for public use
Ma'am, we need this land for the development of the city.
Well, you can't just take my house, or my land
Who are you and why are you here?
Ma'am, it is the law.
Fine. We'll give you fair market value for your property. Just give us the property.
Well, why didn't you say so in the first place? Just give me the money and i'll be out of here.
I'm not budging!
