Spread this like a damn wildfire.
17 Year old Christopher Roupe was gunned down by a police officer while answering his front door while holding a Nintendo Wii remote.
"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.”

Police are already trying cover up this incident with bullshit lies.
Don’t let this just get swept under the rug.
A Wii remote in no way resembles a handgun.
This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting
Any other hat is now obsolete because this majestic hat exists.
I’m not saying it’s fair, or even possible to try to care about every person or demographic. All I’m begging for is that we at least try not to be so hateful.
If the Super Bowl made one thing clear, it was the NFL is definitely NOT a “nonprofit.”
