I dunno. It sounds as if they gave them plenty of opportunities to renovate it themselves to decrease its attraction as a neo-Nazi pilgrimage site, but they refused. This, to me, does seem like a case where the public good is served by transforming this site. I'm generally skeptical of the use of eminent domain, because too often "the public good" is interpreted as "the good of this real estate developer who has lobbied the government with promises of increased tax revenue", which seems like an abuse of the term. But I think there are cases where "the public good" is a real consideration, and this might well be one of them.

The kids thought they would receive stuffed animals, but instead it was, 'and you get a bike, and you get a bike,' like an 'Oprah' for little kids," a property manager said.

Metal music is so popular in Finland that there is a metal band called Hevisaurus targeted towards children, making music about dinosaurs and children's stories

I never thought children's stories could actually be fucking metal, but I am glad to be wrong.
