At 6 a.m. Tuesday, Wright said he woke up to what he thought was a S.W.A.T team breaking down his door. As Wright came downstairs in his boxer shorts, he said the officers barged through his front door.
Wright said an officer grabbed him by the neck and led him outside on his front lawn.
Why did the government use the SWAT team?
The federal search warrant is sealed by the courts, but the copy given to Wright said the Department of Education and its Office of the Inspector General are investigating the Wrights for financial aid fraud.
The government certainly has the right to go get a search warrant if they're investigating fraud. But this sort of "let's call SWAT any time we have to serve a warrant" crap is over the line of reasonable force and in the case at hand it appears that the person they were seeking does not even live at the house.
