A California man who initially claimed to a local television station that he was roughed up by "SWAT team" members who allegedly battered down his front door to execute a search warrant related to his estranged wife's unpaid student loans was targeted due to an ongoing probe into alleged financial aid fraud....While it was reported in local media that the search was related to a defaulted student loan, that is incorrect," the statement read. "This is related to a criminal investigation. The Inspector General's Office does not execute search warrants for late loan payments.
Hamilton declined to comment on the specifics of the case, citing an ongoing investigation.
There have been stories floating around about this, and it hasn't been talked about too much by the mainstream in light of 'Wienergate' **ducks***. From the sounds of it, the Dept. of Education has their own Gestapo for student loan malfeasance. Is this a blatant overreach of power, something that should be handled in the courts or via litigation, and without men in armor, armed to the teeth? Granted it is a 'criminal' investigation, are SWAT teams really a necessity for financial matters?
