    So now the federal government uses a SWAT team to break down people's doors at 6 in the morning when they default on student loans. The militarization of our local police forces continue, just like in the old USSR.

    Dept of Education breaks down Stockton mans door | Video | news10.net

    This man needs to get a lawyer and sue the Dept of Education and the Stockton PD. Their actions were insanely over zealous and an evasion of his civil rights.

    And I love how the Stockton PD lie and say they never did any of these things. Yeah, I guess the door kicked itself in.

    In the small town I used to live in (California) I got a call one day from a lady looking to collect on a student loan default. I had $16,000 in student loans but I paid them all off. This woman was looking for a guy with my exact name (I have a common name) and who had $16,000 in debt as well!

    After the call I looked in the phone book and found 6 other people, in a town of about 10,000, who had the same name as me.

    I got it straightened out so my door was never kicked in. But if that ever happened to me I'd head to the nearest Lawyer and file suit. Kick in doors for student loans? How over the top is that?

    Holy shit! :eek: Are there not more pressing (and truly criminal, I might add) issues out there that the Feds and local law enforcement should be spending their time (and our money) on???? Can you imagine the fear in that man's children as they were awakened by aggressive officers dressed in black (most likely) breaking into their home in the wee hours of the morning? Shameful. So they were looking for this man's estranged wife? As a former law enforcement employee myself, and having worked in investigations, I know for a fact that it's not too difficult to do enough background work beforehand to definitively determine if a particular individual currently resides at an specific address.

    Glad I never got any student loans. It used to suck to have to work full-time while going to College, but at least I never got my door knocked down. What would've really sucked is if the guy pulled a gun to protect his family and got shot by a member of the SWAT team.

    I would have no problem seeing the department at least gutted. Education is one thing that should be handled locally.

    And how doo you think the vast majority of Americans feel about this?

    Not like you fools do.

    Another reason to keep the feds out of student loans. Why the hell do they need to send a SWAT team to find someone who is behind on a loan?
