That seems very odd on more than one level. It's China - I would have thought the government would just take the house if they wanted it. And - isn't it odd that there is no land surrounding the house that would be included in the ownership rights? I think there's more to the story. Like someone decided to make an example of them?

That was my first reaction about this story. Here in the US government can take land by eminent domain, you would think over there they would take it no questions asked. You bring up a good point about some one might have said ok we'll just bust his balls and teach him a lesson.
