Roof Entry

Post by Ryan » Sat Feb 09, 2013 8:40 am

Pros and cons?

SOFREP claims the HR in Midland City, Alabama was resolved in a breaching by about thirty operators from FBI Hostage Rescue Team. Specifically, breaching a 6-foot-by-8-foot bunker through the roof.

Done one, long time ago. It was a Conex, (shipping container). One guy, two hostages near the middle, packing crates near the front door, rear door blocked by a warehouse wall. We used IR to verify location, detonated a small device at the front door as a distraction and detonated a breaching ring on the roof, 3 seconds after the first charge. The blast wave and debris actually knocked the guy out and the hostages were rescued W/O incident. The hostage taker was a fugitive that the host nation's national police took into custody, immediately. Never even saw anything in the papers about it. They can be hairy, though. We were fortunate that everything went right.
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.

We used a mobile crane with a half-size shipping container filled with riotpolice here to put them on the roof to evict a squat on several occasions. they would saw a hole in the roof and insert some teargas to try and flush them out. Squatting isn't as big a problem today as its been from the early 80's until a few years ago.

Considering they were armed with paint and fireworks it was a good method.
