A Christian and free market analysis of the eviction of 1,500 people in East Ridge, Tenn., posits several points. The landlord was denied due process. The residents were denied due process when many were evicted without notice in the night amid a thunderstorm.

Commercial government at its best, a strand of social engineering still hidden from view as the story develops. Courtesy AM 1240 Hot News Talk Radio.
