A sad story and a good lyric. Sadly this happens far too often. I recall a few years ago, when a bunch of hoods (very rich hoods) stole land from the locals around Frankfurt airport. The locals demonstrated for years, but the authorities had the police enforce their "right" to break the law. There have been some victories against the developers, but they are rare cases. To quote one writer, "Money doesn't talk - it swears".
