PHILADELPHIA (CBS) Philadelphia police commissioner Charles Ramsey did his best today to address an incident in which there are more questions than answers.
According to a published report, a 16-year-old boy who is a straight-A student at Mathematics, Civics & Sciences Charter School suffered a ruptured testicle during a patdown by police at 15th and Girard on January 7th.
The boy, Darrin Manning, underwent emergency surgery the next day at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia.
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 departments 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 dont know what took place, and Im not in a position to say at this point in time because I dont 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.

Wow... not sure about just how hard a pat down has to be to RUPTURE a testicle but it must have been total agony. I’m female and the thought about how much pain just made me go weak kneed.
One of my students went there last year after a severe motorcycle accident.
She was at the very doors of death, and CHOP's and many prayers has returned her back to us, with just a few motor skills limitations.
The cop grabbed him hard (no pun intended) and that is all there is to it.
A stop occurred, a pat-down ensued, a female officer was involved. Genitals got yanked, a ball was busted...that’s all we know says the chief. “We haven’t heard anything from the person in the best position to know - the victim.”
You’ll find out, Chief. When his team of lawyers comes knocking on the court docket for your pat-down cop.
"Hey! We in the middle of creatin' evidence here! Back the eff off or I shoot you!"
“Youll find out, Chief. When his team of lawyers comes knocking on the court docket for your pat-down cop.”
Pass me the popcorn. Someone’s a$$ gonna be busted next.
We want to know what happened, Ramsey said today.
“So we can cover it up.”
Bet it was about as loud, too...
Cops giving cops a bad name all over this nation.
It’s not enough that we’re saddled (thanks to an inert Congress) with an unknown Marxist idiot for president, but we have contaminated cops all over the place!
Charles Ramsey defended the DC Chapter against the liberals when he was in Washington DC. It is too bad Philly has killed a good man.
