STUDENT LOAN POLICE DEBTORS PRISON: SWAT team launch dawn raid

_________________________________________________________________________

A little over the top?: SWAT team launch dawn raid on family home to collect unpaid student loans

By Daily Mail Reporter


8th June 2011

___________________________________________________________________________

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.
Speaking to ABC News 10, a visibly shaken Mr Wright described what happened when he was woken by a banging on his front door.
He said: 'I look out of my window and I see 15 police officers.
Dressed in his boxer shorts, Mr Wright says he rushed downstairs and was about to open the door when it was kicked open.
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.'

The Department for Education refused to comment on the incident, saying they would not do so until the case was closed.
They did however confirm that their Office of the Inspector General had issued the search warrant.
The office has its own branch of federal agents that carry out search warrants and investigations.
Mr Wright is now trying to get compensation for the destroyed door.
Speaking to ABC, he demonstrated that although the door had been patched up, the handle no longer worked.
He said: 'They busted down my door for this.
'It wasn't even me.
'All I want is an apology for me and my kids and for them to get me a new door.'
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.'
