How are private property rights being protected? The pipeline clearly damages the property, but the pipeline company does its best to avoid paying damages by offering very little to the property owners impacted by the line. The property owners have to deal with little to no compensation, protesters on their property, and damaging construction activities. Texas eminent domain law needs to be changed to provide compensation for the problems caused by the line.
Arrests, some heated rhetoric mark East Texas pipeline protests.
