” More than two months after Euharlee Police Cpl. Beth Gatney shot and killed 17-year-old Christopher Roupe while serving warrants, a Bartow County grand jury on Tuesday referred the case to District Attorney Rosemary Greene’s office.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called to investigate after the Feb. 14 shooting.

  Gatney and a second officer were serving two warrants at 937 Euharlee Road, Lot 5, when Roupe answered the door with a handgun pointed at the officer, according to the GBI at the time. The officer fired, hitting Roupe in the shoulder. A source said Roupe bled to death before emergency response personnel arrived.”

” The GBI’s report was sent to Greene’s office more than two weeks ago, and a Daily Tribune News open records request has been filed for that report.

  Euharlee Police Chief Terry Harget on Tuesday afternoon said he was not familiar with the grand jury decision and declined to comment.”

 

 

 

It’s about time we are seeing the wheels of justice start creaking along for Christopher Roupe . Ms Gatney’s checkered history in her previous places of employment should have precluded her from ever being an armed public servant and since the “authorities” failed to make that happen another young man full of promise is dead at the hands of the State .

” The family of a 17-year-old shot and killed by a Euharlee police officer has hired an attorney, and they say he had a remote control in his hand. They say it was not a gun.

  Christopher Roupe, 17, was in the ROTC at Woodland High School and wanted to join the Marines. His friends said he looked after them.

“ He was a good kid. He always hung out with me and he took up for me,” said William Corson.

  Roupe’s young life ended Friday night when Euharlee police officers showed up at the door of his home in the Eagle View Mobile Home Park to serve a probation violation warrant for his father.”

 

 

    Friends have started a Facebook page in his honor … RIP Bubba – Christopher Roupe where you can pay your respects should you be so inclined .

FPSRussia Home Raided by ATF

 

 

 ” The ATF served a federal search warrant at the Georgia home of the popular Youtuber FPSRussia with the intention of finding explosives on Tuesday. Investigators suspect Kyle Myers, the host of the show, might be violating federal law with what he does, to the delight of many, with explosives on Youtube.

” Federal agents, accompanied by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and deputies with surrounding counties, searched Myers’ home along with his father’s 60-acre farm, where the show is filmed, in Carnesville. However, Kitty Wandel, the producer of the show, said that it was just her at the house at the time of the raid since Myers was out of town.

“Both Keith [Ratliff] and Kyle were sticklers for obeying the laws and would not knowingly break any. It is very common for people to use Tannerite in media both on TV and on YouTube.” “
