16 year old Darrin Manning was injured so badly by police while being stopped and frisked that he had to have an emergency surgury on his genitals. Darrin stated that he and his teammates were exiting the subway when one of his friends make a smart comment to an on duty police offier. When the officer began to approach the group, they all ran, including Manning. Manning realzing that he had done no wrong stopped running, and that when he was apprehended by police, placed in handcuffs and then searched by a female officer who pulled his genitals so hard that they ruptured.
“She patted me down and then she touched my butt and then my private parts,” he said. “And then she grabbed and squeezed and pulled my private parts and I felt something pop.”
A town hall meeting has been orchestrated by Techbook online, an organization which aims to improve coverage of issues impacting the African American Community.
