Man Knackered After 'Professional' Surgery

 

Police are hunting 2 or 3 men that removed a 62-year-old man's testicles. The man had complained about pain in his groin area and asked conventional medical personnel to remove his testicles, they however refused and he turned to 'professionals.'

The man called his daughter after surgery because he was bleeding heavily and they were gone. St. Paul police spokesman Tom Walsh said, "I have never in my life seen anything quite like that." The man refused to tell police who they were.

  Why  
 
would police look for the men, if the guy doesn't want to say who it is. It sounds like the old man doesn't want to press charges, so why don't the police call it a day? I don't see what wrong was done here other than people who shouldn't be practicing medicine

  Knackered?  
 
Knackered....Please define?

  Kackered means a few things.  
 
Tried, getting killed or getting thy testies taken away.

I looked it up in wiki and dictionary.com but they didnt have that reference, though I did find something funny. Due to it possibly being slang I also looked up git and theres all sorts of slang definitions but not the original definition. A git was the part left over from pouring metal into casts, it was simply broke off and there the original 'useless git' came from, but dictionary.com doesnt carry that ... just the slang.

In this sense 'kanckered' = balls cut off.

  Knackered  
 
Typically UK usage and can mean the following

Knackers - testicles
Knackered - tired or worn out
Knackered up - broken or damaged
De-knackered - what happened to this poor old fogie.

  @ Definition  
 
Thanks for the definition folks :)
 
  by: Le_Creep   08/08/2007 11:39 AM     
  I didn't know it could have the meaning  
   
  by: DarkAngelJG     08/08/2007 12:12 PM     
  Never heard of 'de-knackered'  
 
but Im also not gonna argue it ... cant find the definition I used 'knackered' in hehe. 'De-Knackered' is the exact context I meant it in though, even if shorter, noooo that doesnt mean it needs changed.

Hopefully the title will be left alone and we can all 'learn' something ... or at least share some culture.

  for the OFFCIAL ruling on knackered...  
   
  by: h00ter86   08/08/2007 05:44 PM     
  He got robbed  
 
Haha, if that was what he wanted, its fine by me. Wonder what the police said when he refused to tell them.

  hmmm  
 
"Police found an improvised operating room in the man's house, with bright lights, an apparent operating table, a camera and various medical supplies and equipment. There was also blood in several rooms of the house."

A camera eh? Well this just might end up on the internet...I wonder if the film was still in it or if there are some fingerprints...

  @AccessG  
 
I'm from the UK, I know what knackered means. You also have to bear in mind that there are also subtle differences in usage depending on what part of the country you come from.
Strictly speaking whilst this guy was "de-knackered" he was well and truly knackered afterwards! LOL! So your title stands correct IMHO.
 
  by: kuryakin   08/09/2007 10:10 AM     
  Hehe...Knackered...  
 
I think I've found a new, interesting word to use :)

As for the story...just...WOW
