So what were they going to do with her? Put her in jail for not paying back the loan?
I have to wonder about the mentality of those “officers”.
In another place and time, they’d have been pushing people into cattle cars. Just following orders you know.
I looked up the how/when/why of this....the law establishing the Dept of Education was ammended in 2002, to allow their Inspector General Division to carry weapons....
All of our ruling class are slowly and quietly stealing our liberty.
Why didn’t the alleged libertarians in congress squawk about this?
Probably it was tacked onto something, and nobody even read the bill.
Just think if the guy had a menacing golf club or even a firearm (safety on) in hand. That guy would have been been Guerenaed! And all because of a unpaid loan!
Is this the New Mob? Pay up buddy or we’ll send MIBs to take your @$$ out!
Maybe she didn’t go to school on the loan...maybe she spent it at all at Shaniquas Hair and Nails and Fashion Boutique?
The same jackasses who want to educate illegals for free want to use SWAT teams to arrest US citizens who don’t pay their student loans? Remember the left’s hand wringing that Reagan was going to usher in a 1984 style society?
And yet many here on FR think these people will PRTECT them from a dictorship. If cops are told to get your guns, they will do so, and you had best know it now.
We are a police state and its going to be a bumpy ride.
And what would have been the least bit wrong about resisting this latest act of tyranny?
“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”
Seems to me we fought a war against Britain over this kind of horsesh*t only to be dealing with it from our own government now?
Insane X 1000
Did they put the TSA in charge of collecting student loans??
Perhaps someday I’ll be gunned down because I’m a day late with a book from the library.
Somebody’s lost it....
I wonder if he'll try to blame it on Reichsführer-DoE Arne Duncan.
The useful idiot Obama voters were promised "help" from the socialists, and this is it.
Stockton will be the second CA city to go bankrupt behind Vallejo, and this is the "respect" the citizens there should expect from their beloved Marxists, 'cause it's what they'll get as they're bled dry.
The point of the Department of Education is indoctrination of the citizenry.
The point of SWAT teams in “Police State USA” is the fearful compliance of law-abiding citizens with complete state rule.
Why would anyone be surprised that a federal department, even the Department of Education, has SWAT teams kicking in doors at 6am? WAKE UP! The path of this government is inexorable and undeniable — total power, total control.
EVERY SINGLE LAW, RULE, REGULATION OF EVERY DEPARTMENT, BUREAU, AGENCY IS ULTIMATELY ENFORCED AT GUNPOINT.
This is unbelievable. We are now living in a police state. If they breakdown my door, knowing that I am not a criminal, I am a dead man. My firearm is on my side and will be used. I am pi$$ed.
Get a load of this s**t.
Gosh. This is kinda tough. I feel the team was acting out. But,,, the orders came from higher up. From a guy like Dupnik. What are they supposed to do? Find out just who authorized this cr@p, and string ‘em up!
Simple solution to non payment:
-If no income, cut off welfare.
