UPDATE The Department of Education S.W.A.T. Team Fiasco
A non-profit organization dedicated to the eradication of all student loan debt through activism, education, and legislation; because student loan debt is dangerous to the US economy and to the health and well-being of individual Americans and their families. CRYN JOHANNSEN, Founder & Executive Director
My loan is with the US Dept. of Education now as well, and I am on an Income Contingent Repayment plan.
I am 46 years old. I went to law school between 1992 and 1996 at 4th tier Touro on Long Island, where my academic performance was very poor, and I barely graduated.
I attempted the Bar exam three times and my scores were not even close.
The JD on my resume proved all but worthless between 2000 and 2008, when I divorced.
Beween 1997 and the present, my student loan balance has gone from 79K to 300K.
Sallie Mae had the loan for much of that time, and I kept deferring over the years, because I never made enough money to handle the payments, which grew from $600.00 a month to over $1500.00 a month. (Hence all the stress and strife while married)
I defaulted in 2009. (The loan was still with Sallie Mae then)
Default tacked on 40K to the balance.
In 2010 the Dept of Education or Federal Gov't bought up my loan, and now I am on "ICR" Income Contingent Repayment Plan)
However, I have had so little income in 2009 and 2010, I do not have to pay anything so far. However the interest keeps getting tacked on.
I need a small business loan of at least 10K to really try and expand my business, but I cannot get that because my credit is wrecked.
So I scramble around and paint for family and friends or friends of family. It is a poor living, and I am lucky if I can make my Health Insurance Premium, and keep my clunker work truck going, and eat.
I live in my parents basement, and feel quite ashamed. I was married once, and had sex regularly, and am now divorced, and live a celibant, jerk-off life now, and my family all look down on me as a bum, so to speak.
I started the blog mostly over the Student Loan Debt, and try to add what I can about Law School--hence the posting of my Law School Transcript.
This whole search warrant business is very frightening and I am very afraid my door will be broken down next because of my student loan debt, which is also with the Dept. of Ed as I say.
If I suddenly stop communicating you will know what happened.
There is no bankruptcy protection, and I grow very despondent at times over it all, and I go in and out of periods of drinking too much beer, and thoughts of suicide. (No beer in the last two days however).
I feel too ashamed to impose my shipwrecked life on anyone else, let alone try dating ever again.
I cannot get a normal job because my credit is destroyed. I am immobilized and despondent, and my only outlet is to try and express myself with this blogging stuff.
I am afraid of old age and debt.
Cryn, I am simply afraid.
During the Great Depression, my Grandfather and Great Grandfather built the US Supreme Court building,and many of the buildings in Washington DC. and my Grandfather later worked on the Manhattan Project.
My father knew Robert Moses.
One of my ancestors from Long Island literally fought in the American Revolution, and I have a certificate to prove it. Another ancestor from the same line fought for the Union during the Civil War.
I had a great Uncle that was on a ship attacked by Japanese Kamikazes during World War II.
My family literally erected all of the steel for the World Trade Center, and I have a book published by Random House to prove it.
And now I am very, very deep in debt, and poor. I went to Law school, and now I fell like I am hunted.
My old parents cannot bail me out, nor does anyone else in my family, though they would if they could.
If I disappear or stop blogging suddenly, you already know where to ask for me.
Good Luck with this story. You needn't print this comment if you don't want to.
But at this stage, I don't give a damn what anyone thinks or says about me anymore.
I owe 300K and it will continue to grow to 400K, then 500K, and beyond over the next 20 years, and with no escape, and I am totally freaked out about it.
Please Mr. President, if you are reading this, can you help out?
Hope and change!
After reviewing the warrant, my guess is that the girlfriend (or wife - can't remember) was probably obtaining federal student loan monies and then possibly unenrolling, keeping the money and not paying it back - something to that effect. To the extent that this closely approximates what in fact reality, I can the basis for a warrant, just not the thug means of carrying it out, which was totally unnecessary. This clearly wasn't a violent crime requiring these goons to do what they did.
@Anonymous 9:27 AM - she might not have even been a student. That does happen. However, this was a bad example of excessive use of force.
