Teen shot dead by cop who thought Wii controller was a gun

Christopher-Roupe-3167585

A Georgia teen and marine hopeful was shot and killed by a policewoman who, according to the boy’s family attorney, mistook his Wii controller for a gun.

Officers came to the home of Christopher Roupe, 17, to serve a warrant to his father for a probation violation. Roupe answered the door and one of the officers shot him in the chest at point blank range.

Police claim the teen was holding a gun, and pointed it at the officer, prompting her to open fire. Roupe’s family attorney, Cole Law, says the boy was about to watch a movie using his console.

“The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state that he had a Wii controller in his hand,” Law said.

“He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door, and upon opening the door, he was immediately shot in the chest. It just doesn’t add up.”

Police have yet to confirm if a weapon was found at the scene. Neighbor, Ken Yates, described the acting officer as visibly distraught after Roupe was killed.

“She put her head in her hands and she was sobbing,” Yates said. “Supposedly, he opened the door with a BB gun and in my opinion I think he was playing a game with his neighborhood buddies.”

The officer has been put on administrative leave.

Roupe was taken to a hospital in Cartersville where he was pronounced dead. The result of the investigation will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office, police said.

    Thats just how gangsta these little wii motes really are…

    …i bet it was a pink one

  • Rukiafan Rukiachan

    America is stupid with all the use of guns!! Look at England , only some
    units carry guns an none are as stupid as American police.

    • audi lover

      Haha they kill innocent people all the time a man of 70 a few years back was shot and killed by armed police because he was carying a chair leg just cause its England don’t mean the dickheads don’t kill innocent people

      • Rukiafan Rukiachan

        America is still a wild west country, where guns are still used to deal with any situation or conflict.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Sounds like bias to me. While this is a tragic event and my heart goes out to those families that suffer from unfortunate situations, many countries still use guns for any situation or conflict. This doesn’t happen everywhere in America, it varies on where you live within the country.. Stereotyping a country is rather petty. especially when problems like this are inevitable throughout the world.

          • Rukiafan Rukiachan

            Don’t be stupid kid…Actually America is a gun based society. People there shoot each otther better off than that they help one another.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’m sorry kid, but your view of America is rather flawed. If it was a gun based society, then even the citizens of the whole country would be carrying guns. Lol. Where I live, violence is rare in terms of shootings. I don’t go around pretending that various cities and towns within the country don’t use guns to resolve conflict, but calling a whole country a gun based society is comical.

            Reverting back to Nintenjoe82′s comment, it shows that even England has it’s fair share of controversial moments. It’s silly to pretend that only America is at fault for violence in the world.

          • Zuxs13

            I love when uneducated argue, you sound like the guy in the video you posted. Its such a shame people like you still exist in the world too

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            When people start throwing videos like this, it’s obvious they have little to no ammo to fight with.

          • Zuxs13

            agreed

        • Alex

          Why you British people always hate on America a lot this is getting annoying.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            In most cases, it’s easy to blame one country rather than the many. America just happens to the scapegoat for everything that happens in the world. You shouldn’t be surprised. Lol.

          • Alex

            Yup I know America seem to have a lot problems and enemies to other countries.

          • Rukiafan Rukiachan

            I don’t hate America people.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That can be questioned.

          • Simon Stevens

            Because it’s likely there wouldn’t be many wars without the U.S starting one, they feel there king of the world and can do whatever they like to anybody who stands in there way, that doesn’t include the millions upon millions of good honorable people that live there, just the corrupt government that leads the way.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            To be fair, even if America wasn’t in the picture, there will always be a country that feels they are king of the world. It’s just easier to bash the country that people label them so.

          • Simon Stevens

            Gotta hand it to them though for driving Hitler into a hole, that must have been one epic moment, seeing all those u.s airships coming to light up Germany like a Christmas tree lol, I just think of the countless innocent victims of these wars who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and got blown to pieces for it, it’s just so inhumane.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Seems true like the Romans, Turkish and many great empire before that. People think USA is bad but have they been their so I lived in USA and I understand what is happening here. So I know what the problem in USA is facing now. USA is a good country but before I came here I thought they hated people like me and I hated them back. But they turned out to be my friends so I was wrong in thinking negative because I am an optimist person. For those who is blaming USA has never been to USA.

          • Zuxs13

            Again a moronic stereo type. But you can continue to believe that if you like, its people like you that hold the world from evolving.

          • Simon Stevens

            For somebody that doesn’t know me personally, that’s a bold statement to make, if you did know me, you’d know I had close friends who went to war in support of your country and died for it, call me moronic if you want but it still doesn’t change my opinion.

          • Zuxs13

            I have gone to 4 Wars in my life time to protect those whom were incapable of defending themselves. And if you want to sit there and tell me everyone here is a war monger you sir need to get your head out of your ass. grow up and educate yourself. Your friend didn’t die for our war, he/she died protecting your freedom and those that couldn’t, if you can not see that then you should do some soul searching. Anyone who choices to go off to war has accepted this as a fact and maybe if you mad a sacrifice beyond shitting on people from your living room or office then you’d understand that.

          • Simon Stevens

            We’ll have to agree to disagree on this one

          • SP-937-215

            “Anyone who choices to go off to war has accepted this as a fact…”

            Or… they were just in for the paycheck and college money, like me. Dude, I’m sorry, but I’m a former Marine and for all this talk about defending freedom and shit, the military really does provide some amazing benefits and good pay. I knew so many people in my various units who were only in for the pay, or the college, or because they were trying to get citizenship, or they just didn’t know what the fuck to do with their lives after high school. You’d be hard as hell pressed to find one military employee who was in it for freedom or whatever. Most of the people you talk to just want to get the fuck out but they can’t because their contract won’t let them. Seriously, get off your high horse, Mr Four Wars.

          • Zuxs13

            So you are telling me that signing up for college benefits you failed to realize that you would get sent off to war? Or that you would have to make sacrifices to earn those college bucks? No high horse here, I’m just not ignorant i didn’t expect a free pay check.

          • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

            I know. I’m from the US and it’s quite annoying how people portray Americans as dimwitted fools with a Yosemite Sam complex

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Speaking of…

          • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

            lmao

        • audi lover

          check out Ukraine at the moment its not just Americans its the whole world fella, police are out of control where ever you go

          • Rukiafan Rukiachan

            But Is it a lot worse than Ukraine conflict.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            No one here is talking about what country is worse, it’s called the inevitable violence in any country.

        • Zuxs13

          Well there is a Moronic Stereotype if I ever heard one. Stop watching so many movies, or playing so many video games and get educated.

    • Nintenjoe82

      I think the families of Mark Duggan and Jean Charles De Menezes would disagree!

    • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

      And how many stabbings do they have going on there?? Gun shots vs Stab wounds..? Choices

  • cThreep

    “Teen holding Wii remote shot dead by mistaken cop”. That might be a better title for the article. It took me a few minutes to figure out what actually happened because “killed by cop who thought his Wii controller was a gun” made it sound like the cop was holding a Wii remote, saw the teen, then pretended his Wii remote was a gun and actually shot and killed the teen by accident. Terribly sad story, however.

    • JollyShredder

      Your comment makes no sense. Cop was holding the wii remote, pretended it was a gun, and killed the kid? So he used the power of imagination?

      • Dylan Groot

        Dude, read carefully, he’s making total sense.

        • JollyShredder

          No, it doesn’t. “Cop was holding a Wii remote” “pretended his Wii remote was a gun and actually shot and killed the teen.” How do you shoot and kill someone with a Wii remote?

          • Dylan Groot

            I got downvotes? Really? Three people are either stupid or don’t really understand English.

          • JollyShredder

            You’re the one who believes in magic Wii remotes that fire bullets. I wouldn’t call others stupid.

          • Dylan Groot

            Its official, you are retarded.

          • cthreep

            All I’m saying is that the title leads you to believe that you’re about to read an article about how a cop thought his Wii controller was a gun.

      • JeanPaul

        lmao

      • cthreep

        The actual article makes sense, all I’m saying is the title is misleading because the word ”gun” is used as a direct object for the verb phrase ”the cop thought…” Therefore the wording ”the cop thought his Wii remote was a gun” makes me think that I’m about to read an article about how a ”cop thought his Wii remote was a gun” and shot a kid for real. I’m not stupid, I know Wii remotes don’t actually shoot bullets. Title is worded in a weird way, that’s all I’m saying.

        • JollyShredder

          I’m pretty sure anyone with common sense would read it and understand that “his” refers to the kid on simple fact that a cop using a wii remote as a gun is rediculous. If these things really do confuse you, I suggest reading the excerpt that comes immediately after the title. I know its over 20 words, but I’m sure you could do it.

          • cthreep

            You’re trying to disagree with me, but all you’re doing is proving my point. A cop killing someone with a Wii controller IS ridiculous, that’s why I had to read the title a few times to understand what the heck it was saying. Anyone who knows how to speak English properly would catch that written mistake. The author either needed to juxtapose the words differently or say “the cop thought that THE BOY’S Wii controller was a gun.” Anyways, I misunderstood the poorly written article title, and you misunderstood the point I was trying to make. That’s what happens when we try to convey our thoughts with words on a computer screen- misunderstandings happen. No hard feelings, my man.

          • JollyShredder

            The fact that you had to read the multiple times to understand it makes me understand you completely. No problem.

          • cThreep

            “Boy shot dead by cop who thought his Wii controller was a gun.” If you see no ambiguity in that poorly structured, misleading sentence, I pity you.

          • JollyShredder

            If you don’t have the mental reasoning to figure it out. I pity you.

          • cthreep

            I did figure it out, very quickly actually. But that’s just it – If it had been written correctly in the first place, there wouldn’t have been any “figuring out” to do. I’m not an idiot, you know. I just happen to speak English well. So I had to give that crappy sentence a double take, you know, since the direct object was the word “gun” and the verb that targeted the direct object was the word “thought”, and the person who “thought” was the cop. Simple English. Cause and effect of sentence structure. A+B=C. I found it’s wording to be ironic enough to make me want to post about it, so I did.

          • JollyShredder

            You’re so smart. I am proud you were able to figure it out so quickly. I can’t discuss this with you anymore as I won’t understand how someone could be confused about something so obvious.

          • cthreep

            Dude, all I’m saying is that the sentence is ambiguous. AKA the meaning of the sentence can be taken in multiple ways. I didn’t actually believe that someone died at the hand of a Wii remote. I’m just making the point that because he worded it grammatically incorrect, it turned out to have two possible meanings.

          • JollyShredder

            Dude I said I’m done. You win O.K. I’ve got to get ready to go out for the night. Keep critiquing those headlines and fighting the good fight!

          • cthreep

            I tried to end it forever ago, haha, back when I said that we misunderstood each other and “no hard feelings”. Anyways, I meant what I said – No hard feelings. Have a good night, man.

          • JollyShredder

            A+B=C. I’ll never forget. Thanks for the words of wisdom.

          • cthreep

            Oh, now you’re teachin’ me! “ABC it’s easy as 123…” Got it. Ima use that one from now until forever.

          • cthreep

            ABC it’s easy as 123? Now you’re teachin’ me something. Ima use that from now until forever.

      • Simon Stevens

        I know it’s sad but that comment made me chuckle to no end, just trying to picture the context out of what happened, “can i help you?, am i in trouble?, why are you pointing a wii remote at me?” *police officer* “I do believe I can I do believe I can” *taps heels3 times* “oh shit…. ” *runs away*

    • Donaald

      Then ask your school for a refund

      • cThreep

        If you can prove to me that it’s not a grammatically incorrect article title, I commend you. But it’s a strait up grammatical error, committed by not taking the time to correctly use the verb and the direct object – which always leads to ambiguity. Example: “The boy drove his car who thought he was superman.” Who thought who was superman? Well, cars don’t think anything ever, so obviously the boy is the one who thinks that he himself is superman. Okay, well, then say “The boy, who thought he was superman, drove his car.” There! Problem solved. Damn my good education, always getting me into trouble.

  • Superstick98

    How the heck??? I don’t even… -_- A Wii controller mistaken for a gun? You know, for a cop whose probably used guns alot I think it is really stupid to think that. It looks more like a normal tv remote if you ask me. This is just awful.

    • Shota

      it’s america with their stupid cops.

      • Alex

        If you ask me a lot of cops are corrupted and this is happening a lot.

        • Shota

          but shooting a kid and mistaking a wiimote for a gun is sad. i’ve been in america and tryed to travel over the whole country. And man never goin to america again.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It depends on where you visited. The whole country itself isn’t like that. Lol.

          • Alex

            Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, California, and Florida. You can tell me anything since I know their is good and bad stuffs happening everywhere.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I live in Northern New Jersey, and shootings around here that pertain to cops is rare. I’m fortunate for that. There are parts of NJ that have violence like this, but then again what state or country doesn’t? It’s rather foolish for people to think one country is to blame or has issues.

          • Alex

            Oh okay and in NJ their is a lot shooting happening and in Illinois and California their has been shooting like everyday, and Michigan had one of the worst crimes in America.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Every state has it’s share of crime, some more than others.

          • gerb1977

            I’ve lived in Michigan most of my life and have never been a victim of a crime. We have some bad areas as does every place but I spend a lot of time in Detroit and have never had an issue. My parents still don’t lock their hose and leave their keys in the car… But yeah Michigan & the US is horribly unsafe……get real

          • Alex

            Well Michigan is on the list of the most dangerous crimes in USA from FBI.

          • gerb1977

            We have some very poor areas thanks to the collapse of the US auto industry. Flint, Saginaw, and Detroit have some very bad areas full of crime, drugs, and poverty. But that is a very small portion of the population and not indicative of the state or country as a whole. When I was in Europe we were consistently warned of cons and local issues for every city we visited, but I don’t assume Europe is crime ridden, I know there is a small population that will always turn to crime, but 95% of the people were great and I enjoyed my time there. I think it is the same here. But if all you want to see is the bad, that’s what you will find.

          • Stan Seiberdick

            its black ppl that make the crime rate higher, no offense

          • alex toschi

            It really isn’t even chocked up to area, it can happen anywhere. I live in Fullerton, CA and a few years ago two cops beat a homeless person to death for being at the train station. Doesn’t matter where you live, untrained, unstable, or just plain psychopaths can be found wearing a uniform. Really is sad because I have respect for police officers for the most part.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Of course. I never said it will never happen. I expect it to happen someday. It’s only a matter of time. I just won’t blame the country because of it.

It was crazy, i know everyone is not like that, but dam most people i have talket to are crazy, then again its a redneck area :P

            In new york the cops checked every god dam thing that did not look normal, you never felt safe XD, felt like they are always watching you.

            There was an american politician who called Sweden a Socialist hell a couple of years ago. Was mostly a referance to that :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Ahh. Never pay attention to politicians.. Listening to them is like hearing a Nintendo fanboy boast about how Mario Kart 8 will sell 25 million Wii Us.

          • Rinslowe

            “Nintendo fanboy boast about how Mario Kart 8 will sell 25 million Wii Us.”

            Lol If you’re not accusing posters of being Ninty Fanboys you’re exaggerating their existence. Making positive affirmations seem like negatives. If you’re going to generalise the term “Nintendo fanboy”, which is your recurring theme, then try actually putting names to the accusations. Substantiate.

            By your definitions a fanboy is anyone who says anything about Nintendo, period.

            A lot of people say Chicago is dangerous? Apparently more Americans died there in a year than Iraq.

          • sillybajillies

            Welllp I live in Chicago and our murder rate is high, but we have 2 million people crammed into our city. Murder rates tend to be proportional with population. Our city has more people than entire countries, so I don’t think we’re doing bad. Like every city in American it has its good areas and its bad areas and you just have to be aware of where you are and where you should go whenever you travel to a new place.

          • Shota

            very few places nice people. but most places arrogant people whether outside or (even the kids) in mall. the only country that i never gonna again is america.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sounds like you picked a bad place to go. Sorry that you had a bad experience being here, but your experiences don’t equate into a fact my friend. If you don’t wanna visit again, that’s understandable. First impressions can be deceiving. This is the case for you.

          • Shota

            sadly it was daniel :(

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s a shame, cause there are a lot of great places to visit here as I’m sure there is in your country too. I still say you shouldn’t let one bad experience give you a poor view of any country.

          • Shota

            yeah maybe next time i visit New Jersey :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well, if you actually do. Worst places to go are Newark, Paterson, and Camden. There’s a lot of crime in those cities. I can’t speak for every state, but if there is a next time for you, try to do some research on places you might consider visiting. It may not tell you exactly what to expect, but you at least know what you could expect. That way, you’ll know if it’s worth it or not.

          • Shota

            that’s exactly what i will do next time i go to america. but thanks anyway

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Anytime.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Not just those cities has the worst crimes. Because North Philadelphia does and a very violent place. But people blame USA for the mistake of a few people is entirely wrong I live in USA and they are very nice people down here.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Indeed. It just takes one bad news story to get people going.

            Strange. Ive met many americans in my life. Many are my best friends. Sure, I dislike ther foreign politics, but so do every american Ive met. But maybe the americans who travels the world are more educated – dunno…

            Maybe you met the 30% idiots who supports the Tea Party movement or something like that? :D

          • Shota

            there where some nice people yeah. but most of them where really arrogant

          • Magnus Eriksson

            There are assholes everywhere. The americans who I met lives here in Norway, or met them travelling around Europa, have been very nice everyone. But maybe its different when you go there? Arrogant people are rarley nice any place you go.

            Dutch are among the biggest arrogant jerks in this world. there is a saying, if you aren’t dutch, you ain’t much. This summarises dutch attitude quite well. But in 50 years when Holland ceases to be a dutch, and becomes the Emir of the arabic netherlands, maybe your attitude can change. One of my favorite thinker is Dutch, bye the way; her name is Ayaan Hirsi Ali, obviously she is too smart to be a naturally born Dutch, but nmow she lives in America, since dutch tried to send her back to Somalia when she spoke against human rights abuses in Islamic culture. She said that America is the best of democracies and the last place on earth where freedom still exists. so that women abused in the middle-east, can speak up without being deported back to be killed in their home land, which they criticise, unlike the dutch who prosecuted Geert Wilders for doing, what is protected in the U.S by the 1′st amednment, Americva is the best hope for those who are critical of this multiculture hell Europe is in.

          • Shota

            well i’m gonna ignore you. Dunno if you read my other comments but i’m gonna visit america next year again but in other places.

          • Jarkko

            I know tons of yanks, have lived there and the last time I visited california, francisco and LA areas; I didn’t meet one arrogant person or an ass hole. I can’t believe how friendly americans are generally. French are arrogant if you wanna meet real arrogant people. Maybe Shota just projects his own arrogance, or mind set on yanks who he meets since there is no way I could in all honesty say that about them as a stereotype.

          • Rinslowe

            True, same for me also…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I dislike any kind of politics. Most of it is pure crap really. Personally, I can’t wait for Obama is leave office. Obamacare is really screwing us over here.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Obama Care sucks and if he wanted to fix USA he should have came with a better plan like Lincoln did.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Agreed. I don’t expect him to be one of the greatest presidents, but he’s just hurting the economy. I miss Bill Clinton. Lol.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            I miss him too buddy. My favorite USA President was Lincoln.

          • Jarkko

            Clinton happened to be president on a time of internet boom, he was lucky to be sitting in the white house during that great growth, but most of Clintons policies turned the tide so that Bush JR had big mess to clean from the start of his, very poorly ran, term. Clinton was corrupt as the governor of arkansas and wasw part of a big drug smugling program. google the list of his friends who have died in weird circumstances.
            check up on him all the illegal things he did as the president; you’ll be suprised how bad that man is.

          • Steve

            Still: I’d take Clinton over Obama anyday.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            USA need socialism :D

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            That’s not easy bro. Because USA is build up of a country from different peoples so they are bound to not agree sometimes.

          • Steve

            If that happens, I’m moving to Singapore. Lol

          • Steve

            Doesn’t look like he is interested in fixing America at all, to be honest. If anything, it seems as though America has become even more decided under his administration.

            This is why I like calling him Bush 2.0. He claims that he is nothing like Bush, yet his actions are very similar to that of the actions of Bush Jr.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Totally.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Why is Obamacare bad? Never understood that really?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It doesn’t affect me that much, but for those who can’t really afford health insurance, have it bad. A lot of it is due to the unemployment rates and forcing healthcare on people is a bit much. I think in 2014, they have to pay a $95 fine if they don’t apply for it. 2015 I believe it’ll be in the neighborhood of over $300. Maybe it’ll balance out in time, but right now, it’s a mess.

          • Jon

            we have a similar system in Canada

          • Steve

            Well, the intentions of the law are definitely good. However, the economic impact it brings is where things get ugly, from my understanding. As an example, consider the provision that states that you cannot be turned down for a pre-existing condition. On the consumer side of things, it sounds good. But, if you consider the Insurer’s perspective, it’s a bad thing. We can determine the reason for this by identifying how, exactly, an insurance company profits. In the most simplistic terms, an insurance company profits by collecting as much premiums as they can, while minimizing the number of claims filed.

            Individuals with pre-existing conditions are most likely to file more claims than individuals without pre-existing conditions, placing a higher risk for insurers who decide to cover them. To make up for this elevated risk, the insurance company increases the premium that said individual must pay. Otherwise, the insurance company would be loosing money.

            That is what is happening, as a byproduct, of the provision. Keep in mind, insurance companies are businesses; they are not nonprofits. Because more risk is placed on their hands, they pass the burden to consumers. This is, partly, why premiums have skyrocketed for many.

            Skyrocketing costs is one of the primary reasons Obamacarr is bad. However, disincentivation is another — especially when the employer mandate kicks in, which was delayed by Obama (who I’m not even sure has the power to do so). The employer mandate requires employers to provide insurance coverage, of certain quality, to each employee (for businesses with at least 50 employees) or pay a fine. For many employers, paying the fine is a lot cheaper than paying to ensure every employee. So, some employers will choose to pay the fine, to reduce costs. What is the incentive of providing health insurance to employees if it is cheaper to not do so?

            Don’t get me wrong, Obamacare was created with (seemingly) good intentions. However, it’s costs severely outweighs its benefits.

          • Jarkko

            the tea part actually is against U.S foreign policies and growing police state mentality. The fact that this leftis media that is so supportive of centralizing more power for the central government, is always attacking the tea party movement and misrepresenting them in everything they stand up for. Ron Paul is the father of that movement and I have not found many young people in the internet community who disagree with him on most sociatial issues. See his points online and that is mostly what the tea party movement is demanding from the republican party.

          • Alex

            Wait did something happen when you were in America and what State was it?

          • Lusunup

            yup because capitalism is such a bad thing here in “America” there are stupid cops here in america but the way you put seems like it’s the only place that does that. Humans make mistakes but atleast it’s not communistic were if someone dies they would give two shits like how china is dead body on the ground and people walking around them… yup don’t visit america were you don’t see dead body lying on the floor.

          • Shota

            my brother has been to china. he said nice people and really enjoyed. he even had so many beautiful pictures.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Communism is not a bad thing. Sad thing it never have been tried.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            They have, just that the true meaning of it has been corrupted.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Sure, some groups in the spanish republic before Franco, Hitler and Mussolini crushed them. Elsewhere it was just authoritarian tyrants who used the red flag as a cover for just as fascist policies as the european fascists.

            As an idea communism is nothing else than democracy in its pures and most direct form. Its basically a paradise without any economical oppositions.

          • Rinslowe

            Although there are a lot of things going on in the Chinese micro economy (If it could ever be called – Micro), I have to say, for 1.4 billion people it’s “overall” a very safe place to travel and to live. I’ve been up and down the country many times and sure there are places that you just don’t go – or want to go back to. But in terms of personal safety, it is amazing how they have achieved such a balance…

            My own country with population, orders of magnitude less than China is not a place where you want to be, walking around in the early hours…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            But China is not really communistic. Its a state capitalistic military dictatorship. Communism relies heavily on a theory that capitalistic society with a highly evolved industrialism must be at base for developing socialism (through revolution), that never existed in China as it really was more of a feudal society, the same goes for Russia. Stalin, and Mao, tried to industrialize the society within a pseudo socialistic framework. And that didnt work too well in either place (millions of people died).

          • Rinslowe

            I’m certain that the ruling communist party would disagree. But what I as a foreigner can agree with is that China as it is today, exhibits more capitalism than communism in most area’s.
            Although the term “military dictatorship” is somewhat over the top in all honesty… You make it sound as though they are present on every street corner, lurking inside ever shadow. It’s not the case in fact.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Nah, thats not what I meant. Should probably have called it a police state. Thats a more correct term.

            You are absolutley right that CPC would disagree to that, they have already done that.CPC defines their capitalism as “capitalist like”, but that it isnt capitalism but one primary stage in socialism (that might look like capitalism).

          • Rinslowe

            They certainly do believe in their own interpretations of it. But I’m implying more so what can be found outside of government. Which is about as genuine to capitalism as is possible right now for any country… I would argue even more so…
            About the Communist Party themselves. Of course I cannot comment with any accuracy. And not ones place as an outsider to over speculate… :)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I think thats last part is a reference to North Korea, not China.

        • Rukiafan Rukiachan

          Are the police out of control in the U.S.A.?
          It certainly seems so.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            There are different parts of the US that have corrupted and even dumb cops, but then again, so does many other countries. Which you fail to see the point, or choose to ignore it.

          • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

            he is more ignorant than my nintendrone side

          • Shota

            okay it’s the cops fault. but saying it’s a mistake don’t happen in other country’s. i mean man he was young. Who the fuck would believe that it’s a mistake. Seems that the cops in america really don’t get trained well.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Thing is, this is being based on reports, not factual evidence. This is why we have trials to prove the innocent guilty if they are so. Cops in America are trained just as good as any country. There are always a few dumb ones that no matter how trained, still end up doing stupid things. Many countries have had these kinds of things happen, are we to say they didn’t get trained well too? Food for thought.

          • Shota

            well in this case we can say that THE COP was not trained to well. mistaking a wiimote for a gun and calling it a self defence makes so mad.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            If it indeed happened that way, then yeah, I’d be upset too. Idiots like that don’t deserve to wear a badge. I will be keeping tabs on how this whole thing will end up. If she is found guilty during trial, she should serve her time.

          • Shota

            exactly

          • Mario

            It’s Tampa, Florida also a victim of this?

        • bizzy gie

          No. It’s stupidity. If you have too high an IQ, you can’t be a police officer.

        • Christopher Acuna

          This has nothing to do with Corrupt Cops, just gung ho unobservant cops.

        • Jon

          90% of it happens in the USA if not more.

      • Robert Butters

        I’m not disagreeing, but cops are always on edge in the U.S. because guns are everywhere. That point aside, better training should be used to prevent police violence. Remember when cops would give a warning? “Freeze” “Drop the Weapon”

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Most cops do give a warning, but there are cases where rookies or even just a stupid cop would just shoot someone without a second thought. It’s unfortunate. If this was an everyday event, America by now would be in ruins. People exaggerate the news.

        • Zuxs13

          By law they have to identify themselves and tell them they have a weapon, even if they are being fired at. Doesn’t mean it happens 100% of the time but it happens 99% of the time.

      • Dj

        Not even gonna call you wrong on that, you’re right -.-

      • Alienfish

        Oh, great, it’s a person stereotyping an entire nation of people in a certain profession. Truth be told, it’s only the bored cops that are bad. Small town cops who have nothing better to do than pull people over for driving 3 mph over the speed limit. This officer clearly felt threatened to pull out her gun so it would be wise to keep an open mind about the situation. We can look at the ridiculous nature of the fact that a kid was shot holding a Wiimote, but what if he said he had a gun to the door and was going to shoot? Anything could have happened. We simply can’t know.

        • Shota

          stereotyping? -_- wtf

          • Alienfish

            No, I have enough experience with such things to know what is actually going on. Just like I can tell you that roughly 3/4 of the black people who order pizza in my city never leave a tip. Many stereotypes are true, but this guy was generalizing an entire country’s population.

      • Carey

        I’m American, my uncle is a cop… A Sheriff actually, and sadly I find this statement to be true, and not offensive. In fact I completely agree with you.

    • jjbredesen

      It is tragic, when i first saw this i did not know what to think, it just goes to show that the gun law in the states is fucked up….People are crazy.

      My guess is it was Michal Patcher, dressed up as a cop :P

      • Simon Stevens

        What would Pach attack’s motives be?, ego couldn’t take a dislike, or was he originally going to surprise the boy as a present then saw the Wii remote in his hand and let his motives get the best out of him? lol.

        but in all seriousmess, it very sad, and disgraceful on the officer’s actions, mat she rot in a jail cet for the rest of her pitiful existence, that’s what you get for snuffing out a life.

        • jjbredesen

          It was most likley a Wiimote+ so he was actually playing on Wii U, the NSA informed Patcher of this and sendt him to destroy him just like he has done with everyone who has tried to buy one, thats why sales are so low :P

          But yeah, i can’t believe how trigger happy the cops in the states are, as you said disgraceful, dam next time i go to the airport i am going to carry a Wii mote with me through securaty or something… I guess Nintnedo will start making orange Wiimotes from now, like they did with the zapper XD

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “But yeah, i can’t believe how trigger happy the cops in the states are, as you said disgraceful”

            Unless you’re being sarcastic, you don’t seem to be that informed of how America is. Every now and then, you’ll hear something about this happening in America, or even in other countries to some people’s surprise. If US cops were trigger happy my friend, then the whole country would be in ruins. (In a The Last of US kind of sense).

            You and most people who have some odd way of viewing America(which you probably hear from you news in your country) is rather exaggerated at best. Though I suppose it’s easier to throw the blame on one country and ignore the rest of the world’s problems.

          • jjbredesen

            True, and i understand what you are saying i have been over in the US a couple of times, but there is no denying stuff is fucked up ovethere, not the people, but the goverment and the federal stuff.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Well, that’s a given. Governments of the world have one thing in common, they’re all control freaks. ;P

          • Magnus Eriksson

            We have shit in Norway too. Recently there was this cop who threw a woman from a bridge. And in Trondheim you had the Obioro case where a guy was strangled to death by the police, without the police getting evicted. Shit like this happens all the time. Husby-kravallene in Sweden started after the police shot an eldery man to death. And Sweden+Norway have 15M people together, compared to US 250M or something like that (almost twice the size of Europe). That puts it in a different perspective huh?

            Also gunlaws here are basically the same. And thats why ABB could do what he did…

          • jjbredesen

            I guess you have a point, and when you put in to perspective i guess you i right, as for the gun laws, just google it XD, they are very diffrent.

          • Simon Stevens

            This isn’t even Pach’s final form :D “comment on xbox sales will you”,I always hated the police since the Hillsborough disaster in the UK, they covered up the whole story and stated that Liverpool fans robbed and pissed all over there fans, after 20+ years, they finally cleared there name, police get no respect from me, not a shread f humanity in most. http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130416142809/smashbroslawlorigins/images/9/90/Smoker_One_Piece.png

            Yeah, the police sucks, and so does the goverment in just about every country in the world, people are stupid to, i have lost a lot of respect for humanity in general, and then we have all the fundamentalists, fanboys and the people that lack common sense, i just get so frustrated with people!

      The thing that pisses me off is how they say its a “mistake”. Like she thought the Wii Controller was a gun. Thats a lie on the police officers behalf. I don’t believe that at all. I believe she had a motive for killing this boy. A Wii remote looks NOTHING like a gun. Of course further investigation is needed, but I for one don’t believe that bullshit story of hers. And those crocodile tears she’s letting out. My heart goes out to the boy and his family.

    First they claim that the sega stunner looks too much like a real gun so they make it technicolor orange. Then because light guns still look too much like “guns” they stop manufacturing them first party all together. Now a white wiggle stick with an egg connected to it looks like a “gun”.

    This is simply premeditated murder. All I want to know is the real motive. Not the BS given to try to get the murder off of death row.

  • derty

    I wonder if they still arrested his father after killing his son… that would just show how heartless they really are. I feel for that kids family. Police killing innocent people is nothing new when it should never happen in the first place.

    • Nothing5555

      My question is why the father was being arrested, for all we know he could have been an accomplice to murder. If they still arrested him for unpaid parking tickets that would be heartless but with unpaid parking tickets the police usually does not come knocking to your door.

      Poor Kid, I bet in a few weeks there will be joke comments about being shot holding a wii remote.

  • Mehraj Meah

    The comments here sicken me. I expected everyone to pay their respects to the boy and his family. Instead, everyone is either blaming America or Michael Patcher and not taking this matter seriously. Stop pointing fingers at people trying to make them look bad. An entire country can’t be judged by the actions of one man. I know some of you are saddened by this loss and are being mature about it, and I respect you for that. Lets all just stop with the hate. NOW.

    • Hobo

      Some people deal with things simply by blaming others. While I find that wrong, this is how people are! Whether it’s cruel or not can be debated, but the fact of the matter is everyone has a different way of handling emotions, some let the world know their sorrow, some pay their respects, others try to forget or blame it on the easiest thing and in this case that’s the the country it happened in!

    • Mario

    America is so used to people not having guns that when a citizen Haskins he is labeled as a criminal put cops have and use them everyday and people trust them because of a uniform. This wouldn’t have happened if America wasn’t so uptight about irises having guns because it would be more common and expected and not scary to see a citizen with a gun. Why was the officer ready with her gun? If a cop is always scared for their life has to treat innocent cilicians as dangerous criminals then they should t be cops in the first place.

    • Rukiafan Rukiachan

      Pretty much every day I see reports about the cops busting into the wrong home and/or shooting someone’s dog and/or shooting some innocent person in this country.

      • Zuxs13

        320 Million people in this country. If you hear of one shooting a day that is still less than 1% of 1% of 1% of people shot every year. You sir are a moron.

        • Decker Shado

          That doesn’t make it any better.

          Your chances of being killed by a police officer far outweigh your chances of being killed by a terrorist, which we dump TONS of money into trying to prevent.

          Yes, the ratio of bad cops to good cops is really quite small, but the bad ones are STILL BAD. I don’t get what you’re trying to prove here… a murderer should not be tried for their murder, because most of the people in their position aren’t murderers? How does that change the situation at all?

          She knocked on the door, did not announce who she was even when asked, and shot the kid as soon as the door opened. She was ready to shoot. Do you realize what that means? Even if it HAD been the person she intended to murder, she still would have been a murderer. The difference there, I suppose, is she’d have an easier time making up a bullshit story and getting away with it. Murdering a 17 year old kid with a Wii remote in his hand is a little harder to cover up.

          Not that she’ll be punished anyway.

          Do you see the problem yet? How is someone supposed to trust any police officer in this country, if they do nothing to stop these incidents… and you sit here and excuse it because it’s a low percentage of the population? That doesn’t mean there should be no justice served!

          • Zuxs13

            if you would read his other posts you would see he is blasting all Americans and all cops in America calling them all killers. But if he hears one killing a day that is still only a minor amount of deaths each year. Making it an invalid argument

          • Zuxs13

            Oh and she didn’t “murder” any one. She killed the child but even it it proves to be unjustified it will still not be Murder, man slaughter yes but not murder.

    • Nothing5555

      The only reason I could see the cop being ready with her gun maybe due to the situation with the boys father. What was the reason for a warrant being served to the father, is he a known criminal with a dangerous background? But it does seem like the officer was poorly trained, not sure if this applied in Georgia, but aren’t you supposed to state you have a warrant when trying to serve it?

  • blindtiger

    sooo was it a wiimote or a bb gun? and the cops are claiming it actually was a gun? so confused… and sad.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/ChiGuyGaming John Zaccari

      Family and their attorney say it was a wii remote. Cops say it was a gun. The bb gun mention was just a direct quote from a neighbor who was interviewed about the incident. Hope that clears things up.

    It’s clear that the cops are lying about the gun. He was shot point blank range show by their story he held the gun up at point blank but yet he was only shot once. Cops are trained to put down their targets with at least three shots to center mass. If someone has a gun on you your not gonna shoot just once and hope that’s all you need. Also the cop started crying because she immediately knew that she made a grave mistake after the first shot. I do not think this is police brutality but I do think its police recklessness. She should be fired and better training needs to be implemented in police academy’s. police aren’t trained properly to handle tense situations because most always resort to their guns first.

    • Rinslowe

      She should be fired, absolutely. They’re all supposed to put in time and effort to get their skills up to speed. If the gun was drawn, then she was expecting trouble. If the boy had a real gun intent on shooting the cop, she would have been down before she got to her gun in the first place…

      This whole story is just off…

  • Sdudyoy

    How am I supposed to feel safe around the police if they go off and do stupid stuff like this, people who can’t handle a gun does not deserve to hold one.

    • Shaise

      That’s why Police in the UK do not carry guns in general. They only carry AKs when protecting places like, Buckingham palace.

  • steveb944

    I think the take away lesson is don’t answer the door with our console peripherals. Sad story, idiotic cop.

  • Mario

    WHAT KIND OF IDIOT MISTAKES A WII REMOTE FOR A FREAKING GUN!!!???

    • Guest

      CoD fans?

      • Mario

        THIS IS NO JOKING MANNER MAN! THIS IS SERIOUS!!!

      • NkoSekirei

        wtf man seriously this is no time to be joking and this could happen to any of us

  • DrNope

    So now will Nintendo send everyone bright orange plastic caps for the ends of their Wii Remotes?

  • Donaald

    Saw this news a few days ago on Game Informer and I’m still baffled. Poor guy, he wanted to enter the marines, he had only 17, he had a whole life ahead of him but it was ruined because of an asshole who doesn’t even know how to do her job all I can say is #FuckThePolice

  • Simon Stevens

    Who wants to bet she’ll get away with it?, the government is simply too wide and corrupt to go up against, the law will always favour them, mistake or not, it’s an inexcusable act and in the context of what we believe happened, it’s simply turning on innocent citizens and opening fire, whoever this officer was, she clearly had no right to do what she did, and like it or not, she killed him and has to own up to that.

  • Ducked

    This is horrible! They want to take guns away from americans, yet things like this happen? Prayers out to the family. I do feel sorry for the cop, she has to live with that for the rest of her life.

    • Simon Stevens

      She must have been really stupid to make that mistake, if it was a mistake…. we don’t know, things get covered up all the time, whatever the verdict, she shouldn’t be allowed to protect and serve, she should be in a cell with all the other murderers of the world, accident or not, that’s the law and that same law should apply to everyone, it’s not like she can claim she did it in self defence, she probably didn’t even let him say anything before she shot him so she wouldn’t have known his intention.

      • Zuxs13

        Accidents do not convict people as murders, its not the law.

        • Rinslowe

          Your point is equally arguable – within the context of your reply. Not so much the literal message that “accidents do not convict people as murders” which is true, but in that you imply it was an accident.
          If you say, it’s not possible to prove at this point whether or not the boy was holding a “real” weapon of some kind or threatening the officers before being shot – against what has been reported here and in the original article. Then by that same logic you have to be open to the possibility, that it may not have been an accident the boy was shot – by that officer and at that time…

          • Zuxs13

            I agree and never said she was completely innocent of any wrong doing. But since when has the news been 100% correct on anything. These are initial reports and appear to be accurate but may prove not to be. But everyone here us crying foul on the cop and others are calling Americans war mongers etc because of this. We don’t know all the facts.What if the kid told the cop he had a gun . What if the cop was mentally ill and drew her weapon for no reason what so ever.

      • Ducked

        Well put, couldn’t agree more. Just because cops enforce the law, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t suffer the same punishments that we do. I’ve always highly respected the police, but the last five years, I have lost a whole lot of respect of what they do.

    • Rinslowe

      Taking guns away from people in any country, outside of controlled environments is a good idea. Sticking to old fashioned amendments and using that as the excuse to carry arms in select states is obviously not working out. For all those decent people that have been caught in the cross-hairs of less than sane individuals I feel deeply regretful that they weren’t by luck somewhere else that day…

  • TheHaydenator

    She deserves everything she get’s

  • Joey

    I call that murder, stupidest act on her part not say anything to hold up or something like that without making sure he had a gun, i don’t feel safe anymore this happens years ago when they invented a toy red beam guns and at night it looks so real that a cop killed a 16 years old that he thought was a real gun. She should be put to jail for that.

  • Zuxs13

    This is only one side of the story!! And why the hell is this on Wii U daily?

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I was wondering that myself.

      • Zuxs13

        Slow day for Nintendo news i guess. Either that or the write feels like branching out since he sucks at all the other articles.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          The news post was a tip from jjbredesen. I don’t see the point of the news being posted on WiiUDaily. This is something you’d hear about on CNN.

          • Zuxs13

            Exactly. That way i don’t ever have to hear about them and any of the other crap CNN etc crap out.

          • Jaymes Deen

            Although you have to agree, that having this article here is better then a regular game article where we just get a bunch of Troll Posts from you.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Nah, I’m entitled to agree on my own free will. Cool story, though. ;P

  • SamFZGames

    ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE???? Uh, how about PRISON???

    • Zuxs13

      There has to be an investigation first, a conviction, then a trail. How about we wait till we hear the facts before we start waving the torches and pitchforks at the woman.

      • Simon Stevens

        She took a life over a Wii remote, quit opposing everybody, you idiot, anybody else would go to jail, just because she wears a badge, that shouldn’t mean she has the right to be exempt from punishment, his family suffered an unjustifiable loss, in there shoes, they’ll want her to burn in hell, but getting her put away is there only option and if it was my son who was killed for such an unlawful reason, I wouldn’t stop fighting until she was behimd bars

        • Zuxs13

          We do not know if he was actually holding a Wii Mote or not. That is what is reported by the family. For all we know the kid was a drug terrificker and was known to police to be violent and have access to weapons. He could have been yelling and screaming at the cops from inside the house etc. You are basing your conclusions off a Wii U daily article written by its worst writer who wasn’t there and who is basing his information of someone else’s report on the incident. And you are calling me an idiot.. haha what a joke.

          And if the officer was unjustified in shooting the child she will be convicted of it, but the conviction will never be murder. If you were intelligent at all you would know what the definition of murder was and know this isn’t murder.

          • Simon Stevens

            You like talking down to people don’t you?, think yourself superior to everybody else who doesn’t share your opinion?, pathetic small man.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            He never called himself superior. You’re putting words into his mouth. Lol. He is indeed right, there is no real proof on what actually happened, but rather what was reported. Zuxs13 is correct here. You were the one who initiated name calling my friend, so you’re at fault here. I think you’re cool most times, but this is one area where you’re acting foolish. No one is here acting like your opinion doesn’t matter, chillax. I think you’re letting this news story get the best of you.

          • Simon Stevens

            I could care less how I look, I just hate that guy lol

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t agree with him calling you names and nor should you really. Though he does make a good point. If American cops were that bad, the whole country would be a war zone. Lol, which it clearly isn’t. Unless you live here on a daily basis, you don’t get a real good opinion of the country. That’s like me saying everyone from England walks around the streets with bowler hats. How would I know if I don’t live there? That would make me misinformed. That’s pretty much the point here. Lol.

          • Simon Stevens

            It doesn’t bother me what he calls me lol I’m not saying all pigs are bad either, obviously it’s down to the individual, what bothers me is the lack of respect and humanity this guy spouts out, whichever way you look at it, facts and figures etc, a young boy is dead because he answered his door, I wouldn’t even know how a judge could approach that, to me, it’s murder, if the facts are indeed the facts, a simple “is that a gun!?” would have sufficed before she decided putting a hole through him was appropriate

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            If she indeed shot him blindly, then yes, she should be put in prison after a trial comes to a close. Though, we don’t know if this is actually how it happened. Until the trial and a verdict is reached, she will be seen as innocent until proven guilty.

          • Simon Stevens

            I don’t care about people giving me shit about my opinions on consoles and crap like that, but for a guy that doesn’t know me, he seemed to think it was okay to judge my humanity and be a condescending little prick about it, I don’t hate the U.S either, just the crazy amount of cover ups and reasoning behind some decisions the feds make, I’ve visited quite often and always felt the people were kind, proud and just top notch people.

          • Zuxs13

            You hate me because i pointed out the facts and said not to rush out the pitch forks on this cop? Or that i said not all of us In America want to start wars like you stated was a common theme among us? ”

            Simon Stevens

            Alex

            3 hours ago

            Because it’s likely there wouldn’t be many wars without the U.S
            starting one, they feel there king of the world and can do whatever they
            like to anybody who stands in there way”

          • Zuxs13

            No i just like to let people with ignorant opinions to know they are ignorant and they should temper themselves before they cast judgement onto others. It doesn’t feel good to be judged does it? So stop judging “American’s” and “cops” as murderous war mongers and grow up.

          • Simon Stevens

            Yet you go out of your way to blast my opinions?, if I’m ignorant then so are you, not everybody thinks the same crap you do, accept that and grow up, it’s that kind of mentality that can start a war.

          • NkoSekirei

            dude it was alrdy confirmed he was holding a wii mote on the news last night

          • Rinslowe

            Wow this comment… SMH.
            The article even has a link to the original, so making cheap shots to the writer of “this” one was redundant.

    People who carry GUNS around shouldn’t be making “mistakes”. This isn’t an “oopsie my bad” sort of situation. A gun is a killing machine and should never be pulled out unless it’s a clear life or death situation. Being startled into wrongfully shooting someone just shows that you aren’t meant to be armed. There needs to be better police training to filter out these types of people.

    • oontz

      “Being startled into wrongfully shooting someone just shows that you aren’t meant to be armed.”

      This x 10000000000000000000!!

    Is that cop retarded or something? Come one…-_- I mean how can you mistake a white wii remote for a gun that is most of time it is black… Seriously cops these days killing innocent lives and destroying families…

          Why not tell us where you live because you sound like the idiot here: “Only Americans have guns.” DUH

    • Andrew St. Clair

      Really? Because I’ve seen people in Europe who had guns, and they are all idiots. Russians, for example. A bunch of idiots with guns there. I’ve seen Brits with guns, and the Brits are a bunch of complete idiots.

      Only in America people? I’ve seen it all over. I think you need to get cultured and have a better understanding of the world. That way, you won’t present yourself as an ignorant, uncultured, piece of shit individual.

    Im sorry, but “about to watch a movie with his console”. His Attorney is going to make the police officer get away with it with false BS.

    The eye witnesses say he clearly had a wii remote in his hands. So he was playing games.

    the Wii doesn’t play movies/dvd’s. Just go with the wii remote in his hand

    Cops are supposed to be trained to know the difference between a firearm and… well, anything else. I’ve seen actual training videos where a suspect pulls a comb out of his back pocket. The officer is not supposed to draw their weapon.
