I would say “you’re not going to believe this” – but the sad thing is I’m sure you will.
News 10 reports:
The U.S. Department of Education issued the search and called in the S.W.A.T for his wife’s defaulted student loans.
“They put me in handcuffs in that hot patrol car for six hours, traumatizing my kids,” Wright said…”All I want is an apology for me and my kids and for them to get me a new door”
Fat chance of you getting either of those Mr. Wright. I would suggest that you file a lawsuit against the terrorists for damaging your property and armed assault, but you and I would be the ones who end up paying for any damages you win.
The terrorist mafia loan sharks don’t take kindly to people not paying up on their student loan debt. We can expect to see plenty more of this in the future as our society devolves into a post-industrial socialist utopia.
Armed gangs of roving mercenaries busting the kneecaps of those who fail to pay their debts to the State.
Let this be a message to you serf. You don’t pay up and some masked thugs are going to hurt you.
The CATO Institute has issued an update on this act of terrorism:
from Department of Education Press Secretary Justin Hamilton:
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.
Well then, I guess that makes this armed SWAT raid perfectly acceptable!
Because fraud and embezzlement demands a violent response. What is the criminal difference between not paying debt (which is essentially theft) or fraud? Should we have mercenary commandos busting down doors to find people who haven’t paid their parking tickets or wrote bad checks?
Further, the guy who was assaulted and locked in a patrol car for 6 hours WAS COMPLETELY INNOCENT! – but let’s not mention that in our press release!
This is insanity.
