EUHARLEE — A teenage boy who was about to graduate highschool to join the Marines has been executed by a female officer.
The OP-Nat Eye reports that 17-yr-old Christopher Roupe was shot and killed moments after sitting down to watch a movie in his family’s home.
At around 7:30 PM, young Christopher took out his Nintendo Wii controller to put on a movie.
As he was sitting down, he suddenly heard knocking on the front door.
He asked, “Who is it?” but received no response.
At that point he got up from his chair and opened the door.
To his shock, the female cop already had her gun drawn and pointed at him, according to reports.
She immediately fired a bullet into the boy’s chest and killed him, according to Renee Vance, the boy’s aunt.
The police claim that “he had a handgun.”
It was actually the boy’s small Nintendo Wii controller, says the aunt.
The officer gave him “no warning” to drop the controller before taking his life, the aunt added.
The police claimed to be at his house regarding a “probation” matter. It turns out that it had nothing to do with Christopher.
His 13-yr-old little sister heard the gun shot and ran over to the door to find her brother bleeding and crying.
The little sister held her brother and tried to comfort him as he cried in pain, according to reports.
That’s when the female cop pointed her gun at the child and said “Shut up!” according to reports, forcing the girl away.
Moments later Christopher bled to death.
Both the female officer and the officer who was with her have received “paid administrative leave” as the investigation proceeds.
Paid administrative leave. The mental health facility I work at has some rather catastrophic consequences for severe screw ups. (Being put on Health care agency blacklist being chief among them) Shooting unarmed civilians should and aiming down minors should have much much higher consequences than paid administrative leave.
Our justice system is skewed in the favor of law enforcement agents at the expense of otherwise blameless citizens. If it’s like the countless other cases of this nature, the courts will find this justifiable somehow and zero consequences will come of it.
