    SWAT team raids house over unpaid student loans


    Kenneth Wright does not have a criminal record and he had no reason to believe a S.W.A.T team would be breaking down his door at 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
    “I look out of my window and I see 15 police officers,” Wright said.
    Wright came downstairs in his boxer shorts as a S.W.A.T team barged through his front door. Wright said an officer grabbed him by the neck and led him outside on his front lawn.
    “He had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there,” Wright said. According to Wright, officers also woke his three young children ages 3, 7, and 11 and put them in a Stockton police patrol car with him. Officers then searched his house.
    So, SWAT roughs him up, puts his 3 kids in a police car, a treats him like public enemy number one. Why? Because they were after a MANIAC who became a public danger, after SHE defaulted on student loans. Did I say she? Yes I did. His divorced wife, who no longer lives there, was the one who had taken out the student loans. I guess that's a good enough reason to rough him up and terrorize his kids.

    So, does anybody here still honestly believe that the government has not become too big for it's britches, and doesn't need to be taken down a notch or two? LOL. If so, then I fervently hope that you behind in the payments on any student loan that YOU may have taken out, because you may still need an education, despite the education you already received, as a result of student loans. But that's OK, just move out of your mom's house, and let HER take the ass kicking. LOL.

    I don't care what the article says. The FBI doesn't send a SWAT team to arrest someone who hasn't paid their student loans. You'd better start questioning the read. I can't believe you'd even entertaining that notion.

    Well I will say that any group of men with automatic weapons that storm my house are absolutely right in what they are doing for the immediate future, thats for sure..

    my Grandad always said "a man with a gun has priority over your views, whatever the case."

    now of course, if this story is what it "seems", its a ridiculous abuse of power.

    Actually, I DO entertain the notion, because I remember Waco and Ruby Ridge.

    Dept. of Education SWAT Raid Update: Not for a Student Loan, DoE Says - Hit & Run : Reason Magazine

    Just received an e-mail from Department of Education Deputy Press Secretary Daren Briscoe in regards to this morning's news that a SWAT team was sent to execute a warrant on the estranged husband of a student-loan defaulter. Briscoe sends along this statement from Press Secretary Justin Hamilton:

    Yesterday, the Depart of Education's office of inspector general executed a search warrant at Stockton California residence with the presence of local law enforcement authorities.

    While it was reported in local media that the search was related to a defaulted student loan, that is incorrect. This is related to a criminal investigation. The Inspector General's Office does not execute search warrants for late loan payments.

    Because this is an ongoing criminal investigation, we can't comment on the specifics of the case. We can say that the OIG's office conducts about 30-35 search warrants a year on issues such as bribery, fraud, and embezzlement of federal student aid funds.

    All further questions on this issue should be directed to the Department of Education's Inspector General's Office.
    This will certainly come as a relief to Millenial deadbeats, but the notion that "bribery, fraud, and embezzlement of federal student aid funds" is all it takes to get a paramilitary squad to bang down your door at 6 a.m, handcuff you in your boxers, and throw your three pre-teen children into the back seat of a squad car, all in the service of a warrant aimed at someone who no longer lives in your home, is frankly every bit as terrifying.

    Unless and until we hear that this "criminal investigation" involves some kind of imminent threat of violence, there will be no margin of excuse for it, only new opportunities for bureaucrats and commentators to demonstrate that they are perfectly content living in and even contributing to a police state.

    UPDATE: News10 ABC reports that it was the DoE, not Stocktown SWAT, doing the heavy lifting here:

    A U.S. government official confirmed for News10 Wednesday morning federal agents with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), not local S.W.A.T., served the search warrant. [...]

    He went on to say OIG is a semi-independent branch of the U.S. Department of Education that executes warrants for criminal offenses such as student aid fraud and embezzlement of federal aid. [...]

    The Stockton Police Department said it was asked by federal agents to provide one officer and one patrol car just for a police presence when carrying out the search warrant.

    Police officers did not participate in breaking Wright's door, handcuffing him, or searching his home.

    And it wasn't even his loan either.

    I am missing the part where the DoE needs their own swat team.

    Did they go over that part while I was in the bathroom?
    I may be wrong.

    Re: SWAT team raids house over unpaid student loans

    I did a quick search and found no major news coverage of this event, only forums, and off news sites.. Would you provide a source that has more information regarding the incident. I generally don't trust one source for creditable information. I'm guessing there is nore to the story than what is presented.

    Steven Chu has turned the Department of Energy into a group of shaolin kung-fu badass mother****ers.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The Department of Energy is a member of the Intelligence Community, deals in nuclear secrets and has it's own agents and ****.

    We're talking about the Department of Education
    I may be wrong.
