Morning,

How many times do we have to read stories like this before we all get sick of it all?
All the lies.
All the violence.
All the brutality.
Just reading this story almost makes me physically ill.
If people just tolerate this kind of criminal behavior from it's protectors then what's the point of it all?
It's high time to start prosecuting bad cops...throw the book at these kind of people.
Examples must be made.
I am not advocating criminality or violence against anyone...but these bad apples have got to go.
People need to hold their protectors to task for their actions.
Exceptions can not be made.

"It's unclear..."

Because I guess testicles just explode like that all the time in Philly...maybe it's just the cold?
Decide for yourselves...

-Peace-

Hard to believe just a pat-down provoked the kid's injury, unless he had pre-existing condition.

It was probably more of a smack down than a pat down hence the ruptured testicle.

Of course, as you mentioned there could have been a preexisting condition but I fear that is not the case.

The article indicates the family haven't been in touch with Internal Affairs or made a complaint yet. Nothing but the video which doesn't appear to show what would have done this...

It'll be interesting to follow what comes from this and see just how it came to be. I wonder if he was carrying something that squeezed in a bad way? The injury just doesn't make much sense to the full context of the article and setting where it happened. Definitely one to watch for more info with.

As usual, you're confused.


The only thing that was squeezed in a bad way was his [snip]

Had you read the article...


However, police commissioner Charles Ramsey says the boy and his family have yet to file a formal complaint and have yet to speak with the police department’s Internal Affairs division about the incident.

“We want to know what happened,” Ramsey said today. “This is a young man with no history in terms of negative contact with the law. My understanding is he is a good student. I don’t know what took place, and I’m not in a position to say at this point in time because I don’t have all the facts.”

Ramsey showed reporters video of the incident from a police camera. But the coverage is intermittent because the camera had been set to automatically pan back and forth across the intersection every ten seconds.

From what was shown, it looked like a routine patdown and struggle between a pair of officers and a young man.


Or just assuming facts? I read it...for where I have some questions.

I know, so I can't understand how this police commissioner can even mention any medical information like "ruptured testicle." Where is this boy's right to privacy? Where is HIPPA? De-commission the Commissioner!!!

Yup...


Ramsey says the abuse accusations are in media reports.

“An allegation as I read it in the paper, the boy hasn’t said anything to us officially. So I’m only going… this is third party. So take it for what it’s worth. I don’t know. This is coming through someone else who apparently spoke to him and then wrote about it. Okay?” Ramsey said.


Someone should definitely ask the newspaper he read it from... I agree.

Did I miss something? What was the reason for the pat down search? There's a lot of questions that need to be asked. Could this kid have had a ruptured testicle before the incident and didn't know it? Could a pull on the groin area aggravated it? Could the female police office have used her authority to take advantage of the youth? It sounds like the youth was resisting the pat down, if he was innocent, why would he struggle?

I think the jury is out on this one until more information is brought forward and doctors can decide if this was a prior injury.

Not excusing the cops one bit. They should just know better to be able to frisk a suspect. What the hell do they even learn in their college courses?

BUT, I used to work at a company where we had safety meetings every week and two big meetings every year. There was one thing that seemed to be hammered home at the very least once a month. It was the fact that it takes as little as 15 pounds of pressure to rupture a testicle. I don't even know if its true, but I have no desire to find out and I cringe at the thought of how they even figured that out. That safety director might have been a little fixated, but it's a pretty solid idea to always protect the mcnuggets. I guess that's going to be pretty hard to do when shock troopers are determined to get all grabby. I hope the kid gets compensated millions and gets a crack at dude's nuts in front of a camera and crowd so he can see how good it feels, and for future law enforcement training so bull# like this don't happen.

Yikes!

Ruptured testicle? Those two words should never be next to each other.


I don't know what happened but if it did result from the pay down, totally wrong road.

On a completely different note, I just thought of a way to replace the death penalty.

At least you didn't jump to any conclusions.
How much of this equation do you actually know? All that article says is police and a person involved and what the end result was.
Unless you have knowledge confirming that the cops caused the injury then I don't know how you can make the statements you make without assuming a lot of things.

“Is that during the course of a search, he was grabbed by the genitals and there was a yanking that took place. And according to what I’m also hearing from a medical report is that a testicle was ruptured.



Regardless of how this all got started. The LEO exercised their right to injure a citizen as they do routinely.

When will the citizens reciprocate?

If anonymous is on the ball, they should publish the home address of every LEO in the country. It is not immoral to resist fascists. Dangerous, yes. Not immoral.

Good to see you have not bought into the propaganda that is Anonymous vs the reality.

Police make themselves Judge, Jury and Executioner... BURN THEM ALL.
Some legit folks and some script kiddies from around the world do the same and it's all honorable.



Their are not enough facts about this case released anywhere to accurately make a statement either way.

Another account of the incident...

It doesn't really answer any questions.
It only creates a few.

Yup, after reading that new link it really doesn't clarify anything.
Cases like this are tough to really know what happened.

Since when is pedophilic sexual groping(to the point of disfigurement- and STERILIZATION) part of police pattycake pat-downs?!

The future of the united police states is... GRIMM
