Who knew that the Department of Education has a S.W.A.T. team?!?!

In Stockton, California 15 law enforcement officers broke down the door of a private individual at 6 A.M. When the resident, Kenneth Wright, appeared in his boxing shorts to see what the disturbance was, he was drug out of the house by the neck, handcuffed, and locked in a patrol car. His children, aged 3, 7, and 11, were placed in the car with him where they waited six hours in the heat.

It turns out the S.W.A.T. team were really agents of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), a semi-independent branch of the Department of Education. They had a search warrant related to his estranged wife’s student aid loan, and it is alleged that fraud was involved.

Just the other day I was telling a friend that I would be in favor of shutting down the federal Department of Education… and that was before I knew it had a S.W.A.T. team.
