Young Boy Shot to Death by Cop Moments After Sitting Down to Watch a Movie in His Home

EUHARLEE — A teenage boy who was about to graduate highschool to join the Marines has been executed by a female officer.

The incident has left the community horrified, with many accusing the officer of incompetence and being “trigger-happy.”

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.


Rest in Power, Christopher Roupe

Experience Just How Much Space Junk is Floating Around, in One Astounding Interactive

It's crowded up there: We all know that humans have created a lot of garbage on Earth, but did you know that the amount of junk we’ve created in space is equally extraordinary? These two interactives give you a feel for just how much. The first (above), made by Alex Rasmussen, compares the amount of active satellites (green) with inactive spacecraft (gray) and fragmented space debris (red). As you can see, there’s a lot of red dots.

Although it’s difficult to observe exactly how many there are, the European Space Agency (ESA) estimates that there are 29,000 pieces larger than 10 cm, 670,000 larger than 1 cm and more than 170 million larger than 1 mm. The debris has a total mass of more than 6,300 tonnes and can travel as fast as 35,000 miles per hour.
