    Veronica Taylor February 17, 2014 at 06:34 PM I am posting this in behalf of Christophers family, Christopher lived and loved and was loved..... First let me introduce myself. My name is Renee Vance. Christopher Wayne Roupe is my nephew . This Bartow County Scanner Page keeps posting things so I'm gonna put some facts on here to clear up some things. Let's start with James Hobbs. You are not Christophers stepfather. You dated his mom for a while and that's that. So stop with this bullshit claiming to be a member of our family. You are not nor ever was and I'm really tired of seeing those lies. Second of all there were no drugs involved. The Euharlee police dept went to serve a violation of probation warrant for a misdemeanor. I have gone over and over this story with the two siblings of Christopher and there was not BB gun pulled on the officer. Christopher had gotten up to put in a movie and had the wii remote in his hand so that he could start the movie. There was a knock on the door and Christopher said who is it. No one answered him so he opened the door with the wii remote still in his hand. The female officer already had her gun drew and saw the remote , assumed it was a weapon and shot my nephew in the chest. She never said put down your weapon she just shot. The male officer told the female officer to put her gun away because it was only a remote control. She didn't. Christophers little sister started towards Christopher because he had already fell to the floor so this female officer pointed her gun at my niece who by the way is 13 Years old and told her to shut up and stay where she was. I have friends that are cops and I respect the law but this was a murder. My poor niece and nephew are still very shaken up over this and I'm not sure if they will ever recover. My sister is a basket case and I can't begin to fathom the pain she is in. As far as him living in a trailer park..... really you assholes are just profiling this child because of where he lived. I'm so relieved that being poor is now grounds to shoot a child.I'm sure Christopher would have chosen to live in a nice subdivision and had a perfectly normal life however that just wasn't the hand he was dealt. This young man had his life planned out so that his future children would have a better life and to all the judgmental assholes who just keep posting shit on here about my poor deceased nephew. STOP. Until you know what happened for sure you are just hurting my family and that's a bunch of shit. Christopher did not have a gun BB or other wise. There was an airsoft toy gun in the house but it was not in his hand. I'm gonna see that ther is justice for my nephew because he was murdered. It was not self defense unless this officer thinks a wii remote control can be considered a deadly weapon. The fact of the matter is this female officer made a bad call and killed a 17 year old boy and I hope she pays for what she done. She has cause irreparable damage to my family. I love you Christopher and may you rest in peace. You will forever be in our hearts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sad. I get her frustration with people. The internet is a cruel place where everyone knows everything. At this point it seems most of our society is barely literate and half ass read an article and pass judgement.

    Every time I see an article about a police officer shooting an innocent suspect, it just reminds me of this one cop that dropped by our gym one night and was watching us roll, he scoffed and said something like "none of y'all could take me" we offered him a free class, hell our instructor offered him a free month. All he had to do is take off his gun and boots and walk onto the mat. Or he could've dropped by when he was off duty, he declined the offer.

    Fucking pussy.

    Kid was going to join The USMC to get out of his fucked up living condition and a cop killed him. My rage meter is going off the charts right now.

    That area is an exurb of Atlanta and the cops up there are known to be.... a bit loose with civil liberties, let's say.

    why in the fuck do they need to serve probation violation warrants on a Friday night? I'll tell you why, because the cops get their rocks off throwing people in jail on bullshit over a long weekend so they can't see a judge until Tuesday. The kids father probably didn't pay a court fine, and now the kid is dead over horseshit

    Real meth problem up there, too. It's given some cops a real case of the hard ass.

    Out of curiosity, what kind of lawyer are you? Do you work any type of criminal cases?
