Cops Rough Up High School Kid And Pop His Testicle - Locally 16 year old Darrin Manning was on his way to a school basketball game when he had a pretty traumatic encounter with some city police officers. Manning and several of his teammates were getting off the train dressed in scarves and gloves that the boys mom had just had just given them to keep them warm. They boys were approached by officers who reported seeing “a group of males covering their faces with ski masks and running." The boys said they weren’t wearing any ski masks but Manning admits that one of his team mates might have said something smart to an officer. He was handcuffed by officers- the official report says that he fought the officer and ripped off his radio- Manning denies this allegation. The 16 year old then says that he was patted down by a female officer. He said, “she touched my butt and then my private parts…And then she grabbed and squeezed and pulled my private parts and I felt something pop.” Police say that Manning did not complain of any pain while he was in custody but he went to the hospital the next day and underwent emergency surgery. Manning’s coaches say that he is a straight-A role model student who hasn’t had any discipline problems in school. His mother said her son might not be able to have kids and, “There is clearly some damage that needs to be repaired. But there are good and bad in every area, in every race. The police department is no exception.”

Proof Facebook Is Done - iStrategyLabs has conducted research to confirm the pretty well-known fact that teenagers are no longer into Facebook. According to the report there are 3 million fewer teens now (a 25% drop) using faceook than in 2011. On the opposite end users aged 55 and up have seen a dramatic increase- growing about 80%. A large number of teens surveyed sited Instagram as being important to them and not Facebook. Luckily, Facebook owns Instagram. Zuckerburg, Facebook’s CEO, brushed off questions about the drop off in teens during an interview back in July of 2013 but it’s definitely something that needs to be analyzing considering the teen demographic is where advertisers want to shell their money. Listen when my 65 year old uncle with a 7 and 8 year old requested to be my friend i was gone! lol
