UPDATE February 19: The OP-NAT EYE has learned the name of the killer cop: Beth Daniel-Gatny, aka Nancy B. Gatny.
We tried to confirm this with the Euharlee Police, but were told that information is not being made available. But there are only two female cops on the force and Gatny’s photo has been removed from the Euharlee Police website (note: Euharlee Police website has been completely removed from the web as of November 28, 2018). She also had a Facebook page that was taken down. A cached screenshot from a Facebook note she wrote, however, suggests she’s on psychiatric medication and not mentally stable.
We will continue to update as we learn more.
EUHARLEE, GA — A 17-year-old young man set to graduate high school in a few months and join the Marines, is now dead because a cop felt a Nintendo Wii controller was threatening.
This horrific murder took place around 7:35 p.m. this past Friday night in Euharlee – a small town of about 4,000 residents in Northwest Georgia. A press release by Euharlee cops says two of their employees showed up at 937 Euharlee Road, Lot 5 to “serve probation violation warrants.” Cops said Mr. Christopher “Bubba” Roupe, 17, and who was not the subject of the warrants, “opened the door with a hand gun pointed at” them.
The female cop at the scene fired a single bullet into Mr. Roupe’s chest. The Daily Tribune News reported that the young man survived the initial shot, but bled to death waiting for paramedics to arrive. Both the killer cop and the one accompanying her were rewarded for the kill with paid vacations, aka “paid administrative leave.”
Family Speaks out
Renee Vance, the aunt of Mr. Roupe, left a lengthy comment on another websites forum in regards to the murder of her nephew. Mr. Roupe apparently had a Wii controller in his hand because he was getting ready to watch a movie when the cops showed up. He asked “who is it?” when the cops knocked on the door, but nobody responded, according to Vance.
The female cop already had her gun drawn when Mr. Roupe opened the door and gave him no warning to drop the [controller]. The 13-year-old sister of Mr. Roupe, who was crying, went to hug and/or comfort her dying brother when the female cop pointed the gun at her and told her to “shut up.”
Typical U.S. police state protocols are now being followed. An autopsy is being performed to “determine the cause of death” even though we already know a police thug’s bullet ended this young man’s life. The kangaroo “investigation” is being handled by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations. Expect the inevitable “justified” disposition within a month or so.
A Facebook page has been set up by Mr. Roupe’s family to honor their beloved son, brother and friend. Our thoughts are with the Roupe family.
This fat bitch isnt even being charged and is still employed. Says a lot about their police chief.
Yea, no shit!!!!
She’s still employed, that damn fat ass ugly bitch. I hope she burns in hell.
someone needs to kill that cop
She better be glad it wasn’t one of my family members. Damn fat as a bitch. Drives the police car with her big ass hanging out the window.
You go Renee Vance Tell them like it is
It doesn’t matter a child with a hand gun or a controller. She should have never had the gun drawn, and until she knew what exactly it was he had. I hope justice is served and that the killer cop gets what she deserves. Obviously her background was not throughly looked into before hiring her. Good Luck to The Roupe family and may he rest in peace and the good Lord up above give his family the strength thru this situation.
Really!! This shows just how stupid u rednecks can be. That post of hers was from 3 years ago!! And this kid, wasnt going to the marines and damn sure wasn’t graduating in a few months. He was in the 9th grade for the THIRD time. Woodland doesnt even have an rotc program and the military cant talk to students till 11th grade. Fact is his sorry ass dad probably told him to answer the door cause he was shooting up. And his white trash mom who doesnt even live in bartow co needs to stop running her mouth
You are crazy please do society a favor and murder your children then kill yourself
why dont you go fuck yourself. just go to fucking hell you shithead fuck dick
John- how do you know the young man wasn’t going to the Marines? A person can intend to go to the Marines without actually speaking to the recruiter. Christopher attended another high school in the area, Cass, and was enrolled in JROTC there, before he moved to the Woodland district.
The police officer’s work records were published in the local newspaper. Her personnel files shows that she worked for Acworth PD from 2002-2012 was TERMINATED for exhausting medical leave. She worked for Bartow Co. Sheriff’s office from 1999 to 2001 and QUIT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SHIFT because a leave request was denied. She was investigated in 2003 for “conduct unbecoming” and again in 2009 for shooting at a suspect.
I’m surprised any police department would hire someone who threw a fit and quit because her leave request was denied.
It doesn’t matter whether you like the young man, his father or his mother; this was a bad shooting and the police officer needs to punished. You should also not assume his father was “shooting up” and that his mother is “white trash”.
I don’t care if he was in the 9th grade, 12th grade, or a high school drop out (as you appear to be judging by your spelling, grammar, and punctuation.) This kid was in his own house, watching a movie, when a cop shot him in the chest for daring to open the front door with a Wii controller in his hands. Not only that, but she put the lives of his younger siblings in danger also, by shooting into the home. AND to top it off, the reasons she was there had nothing to do with this kid. If this cop feels she cannot do her job without shooting first, and asking questions later, she needs to find employment elsewhere.
“If this cop feels she cannot do her job without shooting first, and asking questions later, she needs to find employment elsewhere.”
Yes, but more importantly – when she actually fires off in such a situation – She should be prosecuted! Whether incompetent, a scared witless coward, or a psychopath, these are only shades of difference between different forms of unjustified homicide! All criminal acts, which nonetheless somehow get treated as job related disciplinary matters!
So, the real point is, If she shoots first in such situations, she should go to jail.
And…. Just to be sure I had all the relevant facts I did some research and found to my delight that a Grand Jury recommended charges against her in April. Then I found, the Prosecutor sent the question to a Second Grand Jury in July, and apparently got “No Bill” he was looking for:
“Because the Grand Jury has determined that the actions of Officer Gatny did not rise to the level of a criminal offense, this concludes the involvement of the District Attorney’s Office in this matter,” District Attorney Rosemary Greene said.
There was no reason given for why this was the right Grand Jury decision, and why the previous one was somehow wrong or insufficient for the Prosecutor to pursue. Which leads one to question the integrity of both the process and the Prosecutor.
I can’t believe this cop went completely unpunished=Every time I believe I can’t be more SHOCKED by a police brutality situation I’m proved wrong as this is the most shocking to me incident to date. The kid did nothing but answer his front door when the doorbell rang and he got shot DEAD by a “trigger happy” cop who mistook the video game controller he had in his hand for a gun being pointed directly at her=How can this cop NOT BE IN JAIL let alone still be on the force? I simply cannot believe this cop was not punished at all.
The entire judicial system is as corrupt as the cops, and that is one of the main reasons why the cops have gotten so bad. The pay and benefits are too good for these people to do their job honestly. The pay and benefits are so high that they all protect each other from one government department to the next. It is that way everywhere now at the local level.
You piece of shit. You know nothing about my family. His dad is a piece of shit but his mom didn’t live there and Christopher was in the 10th grade. You have no idea about the life my nephew had and I will be glad to clue you in face to face. You prick shut the hell up and go play with you friend Beth. Btw. 3 years ago or not bitch was and is off her rocker
You need to have your butt kicked. You are the stupid redneck, defending this trigger happy cop with mental disorders. I have to wonder if you are not a small time Georgia cop, no education, making maybe $28,000 a year. Most local cops in these small Georgia towns are too stupid to start a lawnmower.
Some mentally-disturbed Butch Dike Cop on steroids with a hyphenated last-name needs to show up on your doorstep and execute one of your kids in front of you and point the same gun at your head and tell you to “shut the f**k up” as you cry over your dying child….followed by thread commentators like yourself who will call you and your family “white trash red-neck’s” who had it coming. Then you’ll understand!
This cop is on psychotropic drugs cause she is mentally unbalanced, as it says on her facebook entry. The department is more to blame than her. An, hallucinating, unsure, paranoid, cop with a gun serving a warrant? Why was the gun even drawn? It was for a probation violation,
Wow. They’re killing us white people now.
this all comes down to the HR practices of departments across the United States. Many departments cull those that score TOO WELL on their aptitude tests, many police departments across these United States only accept applicants scoring in the 60’s and places like the NYPD set the bar to those only around the 70’s. That’s right, they only are hiring D and C level potentials. To compound the issue, the psychological exam screens out all those that display independent thought. Blind obedience is the desired trait. So, we’ve got a bunch of obedient morons wielding a gun and a badge across the US! If we want to see change, if we want to see a reduction in officer violence there are two things that need to be done. 1) All officers are to be outfitted with Camera’s, a simple google search will demonstrate the effectiveness of this tactic. 2) the HR policies are to be changed, maximum score caps removed and Minimum requirements raised. As well as an end to the psyche test screening out those capable of judgement.
The corrupt top echelons and rank-and-file judiciary need to be cleaned out thoroughly and replaced wholesale so that new personnel are trained properly. Those running things now are all criminals and they ALL MUST GO. This applies EVERYWHERE.
You got that right… Now the stupid fucks know ,how it feels…
They are being trained by the Israelis……nuff said
All across America cops are murdering civilians with impunity. I read recently that more Americans have now been murdered by cops, than all of the US military murdered in our illegal wars of aggression and empire-building in Iraq and Afghanistan combined! This trend will not abate until such a time as cops are held personally responsible – both criminally and financially – for murdering civilians. And of course we know that is never going to happen.
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
written July 4 1776, we’ve come full circle
“The 13-year-old sister of Mr. Roupe, who was crying, went to hug and/or comfort her dying brother when the female cop pointed the gun at her and told her to “shut up.””
WTF?????!!!!!!!! Hang this cop!
Secondly, were the paramedics told to show up late so the victim would bleed to death in the meantime and not be able to testify as to what REALLY happened?
Little sister is lucky she didn’t have a teddy bear in her hands, or no doubt she’d be dead now too…
Here’s the contact information for the police in Euharlee! They need to be bombarded with people telling them not only fire that incompetent b**ch, she should be tried for murder!!
Euharlee Police Department
30 Burge’s Mill Rd, Euharlee
did you notice that she’s neither christian, nor muslim, nor buddhist ??
And you know this how? I think I missed the statement where it said that.
He would have died for his country in the Marine Corp. This is SAD. And we are taught to fear Iran and Russia.
We should all contact the police department of EUHARLEE, GA and demand her resignation and she should be tried for her crimes!!!
You journalists should start publishing the names and addresses of police gangsters so the locals can kill them prompltly.
Well look, we are guilty of ALLOWING them to treat us this way and thus have nothing to cry about. Look at how a jury just found the two cops INNOCENT in the murder case of Kelly Thomas!!! We are stupid sheep and we deserve what we get.
I agree with you man, but there’s a vast majority of people who would, by all means, fight things like this from happening. But there’s just nothing we can do. So, in my opinion, the problem is that we have no way of stopping these things other than upping the requirement for officers to be hired greatly, and we know that’s not gonna happen. This officer in particular needs to spend a long, long time on the other side of bars. (life)
Did Jesus Christ deserve what he got? We are not the criminals here we are the victims and it would be good to remember that.
Tony Stark didn’t either, but this is reality where the good are punished and the bad given guns.
I know-SICK on multiple levels.
