    aftermarket controller that you think that is what the kid was holding?

    You have implied 3 times that this is what the kid was holding.   I can give you 2 mistakes but now you are just trying to confuse the issue.

      Some people simply cannot keep two things separate.

      Some people simply cannot understand the logic behind "If it was a gun look-alike controller then the neighbors would not have been able to tell the difference either. BUT THEY DID TELL THE DIFFERENCE EVEN FROM OUTSIDE THE SCENE, so there is no way that it was what is pictured above".

      Some people WILL be so confused by the picture that they cannot help but think that such a thing is actually logged evidence.

        that you think I could have convinced anyone in this echo chamber that the thing the kid was holding was a gun look-alike. Truly.

        But that is not my intention. I am merely saying that because such a thing exists, there is the POSSIBILITY---not a SURETY---that it could have been confused when the kid opened the door of a home where a dude lives who has skipped probation. As for the neighbors of a dude in a trailer park that has little regard for the law apparently, how is it that you have become such an expert on their character and dismiss what the cops say?

        But don't let my assertion stop you from projecting. My goodness, no.

          The police would be shouting it from the rooftops to get the media off of them.

          They are not.

          Also,

          "But the family's attorney, Cole Law, said the boy was holding a Nintendo Wii video game controller, and was about to watch a movie."

          That's a quote from the article.

          Given that he was reportedly about to watch a movie, it is EXTREMELY unlikely he had one of these aftermarket items on the controller. Having one would make it extremely annoying trying to control a movie.
