If you haven’t caught this story yet, then you’ll be shocked at how far the Department of Education will go to collect monies owed them (if that is, in fact, what this was about). Our government, it seems, is fully prepared to follow the route of mob style knee-cracking. If the banks had their way, this is how most debt collections would go:
A father was dragged from his home and handcuffed in front of his children by a SWAT team looking for his estranged wife – to collect her unpaid student loans.
A stunned Kenneth Wright had his front door kicked in by the raiding party at 6 am yesterday before being dragged onto his front porch, handcuffed and led to a police car with his three children.
He says he was then detained for six hours while officers looked for his wife – who no longer lives at the house.
Mr Wright was later told by Stockton police that the order to send in the SWAT team came from The U.S. Department of Education who were looking for his estranged wife to collect defaulted loan payments.
An officer then grabbed him by the neck before dragging him out onto the front lawn.
His 3, 7, and 11-year-old children were also removed by officers and put in a waiting police car.
‘He had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there,’ Mr Wright said.
‘They put me in handcuffs in that hot patrol car for six hours, traumatising my kids.’
He even had words of advice for anyone thinking of skipping paying their college bills.
He added: ‘People who have student loans , pay your bills, take care of your credit.
‘If you don’t belive me, this could be you one morning 6 o’clock.’

For those who are familiar with FEMA emergency “refugee” camps, after reading this story we can’t help but wonder if these are the debtors’ gulags of the future.
Perhaps before going after main street debtors, we can first send SWAT teams with search warrants to the homes of those government officials who have taken on more than $14 trillion in national debt and in excess of $60 trillion in unfunded liabilities, as well as those who debase our currency on a minute-by-minute basis by printing billions of dollars daily.
