It's hard to believe that you actually read the article or watched the video.

"He had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there," Wright said.
According to Wright, officers also woke his three young children ages 3, 7, and 11 and put them in a Stockton police patrol car with him. Officers then searched his house.
The federal officer that was interviewed said "they only requested one patrol car from Stockton." He does not say how many federal officers there were or how many Stockton police were actually involved. This was a federal search warrant and we know that the feds have SWAT teams.
I will give the benefit of the doubt to the homeowner -- who said that he saw "15 police officers" outside his house.
Regardless of whether it was local or federal SWAT, what REASONABLE basis would a police department have to break in to a citizen's house and detain him or her because of defaulted student loans? That's a civil situation, not criminal. I thought only the Mafia used force to collect "debts."
