So now a Wii controler is a gun? Overbear get your ass in here.

Euharlee (GA) Female Cop Summarily Executes Christopher Roupe; “Armed” With Nintendo Controller.

Euharlee (GA) Female Cop Summarily Executes Christopher Roupe; “Armed” With Nintendo Controller | The OP-NAT EYE

EUHARLEE, GA — A 17-year-old young man set to graduate high school in a few months and join the Marines, is now dead because a cop felt a Nintendo Wii controller was threatening.

This horrific murder took place around 7:35 p.m. this past Friday night in Euharlee – a small town of about 4,000 residents in Northwest Georgia. A press release by Euharlee cops says two of their employees showed up at 937 Euharlee Road, Lot 5 to “serve probation violation warrants.” Cops said Mr. Christopher “Bubba” Roupe, 17, and who was not the subject of the warrants, “opened the door with a hand gun pointed at” them.

The female cop at the scene fired a single bullet into Mr. Roupe’s chest. The Daily Tribune News reported that the young man survived the initial shot, but bled to death waiting for paramedics to arrive. Both the killer cop and the one accompanying her were rewarded for the kill with paid vacations, aka “paid administrative leave.”

Family Speaks out

Renee Vance, the aunt of Mr. Roupe, left a lengthy comment on another websites forum in regards to the murder of her nephew. Mr. Roupe apparently had a Wii controller in his hand because he was getting ready to watch a movie when the cops showed up. He asked “who is it?” when the cops knocked on the door, but nobody responded, according to Vance.

The female cop already had her gun drawn when Mr. Roupe opened the door and gave him no warning to drop the [controller]. The 13-year-old sister of Mr. Roupe, who was crying, went to hug and/or comfort her dying brother when the female cop pointed the gun at her and told her to “shut up.”

Typical U.S. police state protocols are now being followed. An autopsy is being performed to “determine the cause of death” even though we already know a police thug’s bullet ended this young man’s life. The kangaroo “investigation” is being handled by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations. Expect the inevitable “justified” disposition within a month or so.

A Facebook page has been set up by Mr. Roupe’s family to honor their beloved son, brother and friend. Our thoughts are with the Roupe family.

Nothing but a bunch of thugs with guns.

Wow, that's not a sensationalizing(?) article.

Who answers the door acting like they are pointing a gun at someone? Something seems off.

Maybe he was playing Wii and was still navigating a menu or something as he opened the door. He'd probably have his elbow at a 90* angle if he was using the controller. Which apparently would be reason enough to kill him

You're taking the word of a household that has at least one criminal in it. Not saying the popo was right or actually felt threatened but something doesn't add up.

Shitty part about this is, you can't trust what these people say and you can't trust what the cops say. That's why I'm a firm supporter of placing a small video/sound recorder on every cops gun. If said device fails, for any reason, the cop is fired on the spot and the shooting goes to trail.

while I think her actions were totally wrong, I have a feeling the weapon drawn and reaction may have been in part to this...

937 Euharlee Road, Lot 5 to “serve probation violation warrants.

Does not sound like your white collar neighborhood.

Still not acceptable action though.

I'd to give them all the camera glasses... That way they can't throw a punch as well as shoot without the camera seeing the target.

He had a higher score on the game than the cop did so the bitch shot him.

Glasses can be taken off or "accidentally" knocked off, put the camera in the bage on the front of their uniform directly in their line of sight.

I gotta go back to the old saying....If anyone else shot someone who was armed with a Wii remote, they would be a menace and people in the community would be wanting their head on a stake.

Just because you carry a badge does NOT give you the right to be trigger happy. In fact, its kind of the opposite.

hat cameras are getting popular around here.

That article was stupidly sensational but googling and reading other articles it sure sounds like a bad shoot

Not anyone else is tasked with serving warrants to criminals.

I'm taking with a grain of salt for the moment the story of the family with the criminal being served a warrant for probation violations.

Still, very sad. And, the cops do have some serious fucking explaining to do. I'm not saying what they did was OK, just the story is not necessarily reliable.

Maybe this guy has a theory about it:
Supposedly, he opened the door with a >< gun and in my opinion I think he was playing a game with his neighborhood buddies,” said Yates.

Maybe he thought it was friends, and wanted to mess with them and open the door with it pointing at them. Pretty common thing.

Mr. Roupe apparently had a Wii controller in his hand because he was getting ready to watch a movie when the cops showed up.

This would make me believe it was just a run of the mill controller. I would imagine that if it was a gun type the cops would have their own version of the story out now complete with pics of the controller.

Hell, I'd take that infamitory piece of yellow journalism with a bucket of salt.
No way should anyone form any conclusions based on that article.
