It shouldn't be stopped because eminent domain is sometimes necessary to prevent greedy, selfish or bigotted people from sabotaging the public good. What is necessary is a revision of the law, and if necessary the Constitution, to prevent any repetition of the recent scandalous behaviour in Connecticut where some people had their family homes taken away so that private enterprise could make some private money.
