7-year-old gives his game system to police after officer killed

- A Wisconsin boy gave away his prized Nintendo Wii console and all his favorite games to his local police department, his way of standing by them as they cope with a tragic loss.

When Brady Duke, 7, heard about the fatal shooting of Wausau Police Department Detective Jason Weiland, he wanted to do something special for his local officers to support them through their difficult time.

“He just has a really big heart,” mom Jessica Duke said of her son.

Struck by their tragedy, Brady packed up his Nintendo Wii along with his favorite games, and sent it to the brothers in blue.

“When we told him about the shootings, he felt like his heart broke about it,” his mom explained. “He knew in his heart he needed to do something.”

Along with the gift, Brady attached a note that the police department shared on Facebook: “Dear officers, thank you for serving our community. You keep my family and I safe. I am so sorry that one of your police brothers died. How can I help?”
