A kid named Christopher Roupe was sadly killed at the age of 17 by a police officer; the police claim that Christopher had a firearm but all eye witnesses say it was clear that all he was holding was a Wiimote. The police visited Christopher’s house to see his father about his probation violation warrant but right as he opened the door he was fired upon and he was hit in the chest.
Even though the female cop who killed Christopher started crying after she did it; she is still incredibly horrible. I don’t see how a Wiimote could be mistaken for a firearm, it’s basically a rectangular prism and in no way resembles a firearm whatsoever; the cop obviously had her firearm holstered so she had time to think before what she did.
It’s incredibly sad that a young kid was killed this way, simply because he was playing his Wii and he brought his Wiimote with him as he answered the door; it’s just not fair. I bet he was excited for all the latest Wii U games coming out and such, now he’ll never be able to play them; my prayers go out to the Roupe family.
