Avoiding the ‘Fatal Funnel’

In a recent Police shooting in Houston, one officer was killed and another wounded while serving a drug warrant.

Both officers were standing in front of an open door to an apartment when the shooting began.

Tactically speaking you want to avoid standing in front of doors, open or closed.

Open doors silhouette your profile while closed doors give your position away to the bad guy.

It may sound basic but in a bad guy’s mind they have a 50/50 shot of hitting you if they shoot through the door after you knock on it and announce yourself! Which is why even today after knocking on a  door I stand to the side of it, regardless how nice a neighborhood!

Although it is beyond the scope of this article to dive into the modern fallacies of some modern CQB  dogma, the main issue for the armed citizen to remember with the fatal funnel is the following, taken from this article:

The original meaning of the ‘fatal funnel’ was a warning to ensure that you did not pause or remain in doorways or windows. It was to prevent silhouetting yourself there. Of course, when readying to prevent a room entry, the ‘bad guy’ will naturally set up to shoot towards natural entry points. So, rather than over-defining the ‘fatal funnel’, as the video says, it is more about enemy lines of fire, corners, and avoiding silhouetting yourself there. Don’t try and define the ‘funnel ‘ geographically and over complicate it, creating a whole bunch of stylized drills based on over-complicated assumptions about the fatal funnel.

Think it Through. Prepare Accordingly.

Texas News: Houston Cop Killed by Black Thug Drug Dealer with Illegal Weapon

Note this POS was a felon with a jacket of crimes dating back to 2008.

He was in possession of an illegally obtained and modified handgun.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jeffrey and Vance Family.

 

Cartel Corner: A Secret Look at a Mexican Cartel’s Low-Tech, Multimillion-Dollar Fentanyl Operation

A Secret Look at a Mexican Cartel’s Low-Tech, Multimillion-Dollar Fentanyl Operation

 

via: Active Response Training

A valuable look at how Fentanyl is mixed with heroin and smuggled into the USA by Mexican drug cartels.  Besides providing an accurate summary of what’s happening, you should additionally note two things:

1- I’ve been writing for some time about how as Americans lose faith in government institutions, private powers will rise up to take the place of the government.  We see it now in America with the wealthy hiring private security to patrol the neighborhoods where they live.  Here is yet another example.

The video shows how the drug cartels have completely supplanted the local government and are now providing many of the available jobs and social services. The cartels serve a role as a type of surrogate government enterprise. Take a look at the video at the 5:10 time stamp.  Those are cartel-owned cemeteries (which also serve as high end party spots) in Sinaloa.  Some of the crypts are bigger than my house.  All provided by the drug cartels.  “Don’t have money for a funeral?  No worries.  Work for the cartel and you will be forever immortalized in a place like this.”

I believe something similar will be coming to the USA as well.  The criminal street gangs are already a more powerful force than the police/government in many urban population centers.  This power shift will increase with diminishing tax revenues, fewer government support programs, and a “defunding” of the police.

2- Take a look at how the cooks are handling the fentanyl at around the 1:10 time in the beginning of the video.  No respirators.  No gloves.  They are dumping pounds of the stuff into the boiling cauldron of heroin precursors without any protective gear.  No adverse effects.  Now you see why I’ve always doubted the reports of cops passing out and requiring Narcan for getting a single grain of fentanyl powder on their hands.  The “epidemic” of accidental police fentanyl overdoses is utter bullshit.

When the cartels have more influence than the government, people’s loyalty shifts to the cartel over the historical “powers that be.”  This power shift will happen here too.  Some experts call it the “Cartel-ification” of America.  When criminal gangs step up and begin providing more benefits to local residents (jobs, infrastructure, schools, hospitals, and charity for the poor) than the government provides, who do you think the people will support?

Second Thoughts About That FBI Report of a 40% Spike in Anti-Black Hate Crime

Second Thoughts About That FBI Report of a 40% Spike in Anti-Black Hate Crime

 

As per usual the FBI’s data set is imperfect and skewed.

Almost like they have an agenda?

Big surprise there.

“Some of the biggest increases in anti-black hate crimes occurred in Democratic Party strongholds yet, perhaps surprisingly, almost no increases were reported in major cities riven by the racially tinged protests and riots after George Floyd’s murder.”

“The recent FBI dataset tallies reported hate crimes, not the number proven in court.”
