7 US Marshals came to the guy’s house, with automatic weapons, and hauled him away over a $1500 loan from 1987. Then he had to sign a repayment plan at the courthouse.
He owed the government a relative pittance and yet the full resources of the US Marshal service were employed to bring this guy in. What do you think the cost of 7 marshals, the cars, the judge’s time, the legal processing, etc. cost the US taxpayer?
How many Washington/Wall Street types have been treated this way for their “crimes”? Not many.
(From Fox 26 Houston)
Congressman Gene Green says the federal government is now using private debt collectors* to go after those who owe student loans.
Green says as a result, those attorneys and debt collectors are getting judgements in federal court and asking judges to use the US Marshals Service to arrest those who have failed to pay their federal student loans.
Our reliable source with the US Marshal in Houston say Aker isn’t the first and won’t be the last.
Crony capitalism in fatigues. Great.
