I’m surprised those of you who truly believe Wheeling is a racist town still live here. You know you could get away from all this Wheeling racism by moving to someplace less racist. Like Chicago. Or Detroit. Or New York City. Somewhere the black-on-black crime rate is lower. And the black employment rate is higher. And where blacks aren’t “stopped and frisked” because of the policies of a racist mayor and racist police establishment.

Derrrrrr....

Police are out of order...our good citizens are no longer comfortable and feel safe in our own neighborhoods...wrong focus is evident, and continues negatively affecting our community. very poor.

(cont.) They fear that the complexion, if you'll pardon the expression, of this country is changing. Just as many conside the U.S. to be a christian nation, they also consider it to be a white country. The domographics, however, are shifting, particularly with regard to the Hispanic population. This shift, along with events such as the election and re-election of President Obama, threaten their control. It's sad because it's so unnecessary.

SheilaE, since moving her, my biggest disappointment was the discovery that this valley is plagued with a strong under current of racism. It occasionally seeps to the surface, like sewage from a broken pipe. Most of the time, it remains hidden. When you pass by, ther's a smile, a wink and a nod. You can talk about the constitution all you want. You can legislate yourself into a tizzy but there's no way to compel people to abandon their useless hatred and fear. Fear is the correct term. A lot of white Americans are afraid

Shiela, was did you presume George Zimmerman to be innocent? And when you are yelling racism and then call someone a "hillbilly racist" you are hilarious.

Remember black people: Listen to these comments. How can a black person get a fair trial around here??? You say BLACK and you're GUILTY!!! Done with this convo!!! Ignorance is at an ALL TIME HIGH in this area!!! I don't care what statistics say about BLACK CRIME. The Constitution say INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!! I don't care what color you are. The fact of the matter is SHE DID NOT COMIT THIS CRIME!!!!

And it's mostly black on black crime. But more white people commit white collar crimes, but instead of going to the hard Penitentiary they go the FEDERAL COUNTRY CLUB!!! Your point is???? There are not more black people moving to this area PERIOD!!!

Charges dropped. Apology not accepted. Humble pie served with two big scoops of cash. Wheeling taxpayers end up paying her, remember this when you vote for your city officials, and remember who put the Chief and deputy chief of police in their positions. BTW- Sheila E.- you go girl.

Crickets.... If this happened to one of you, you would be yelling so loud that the whole city would hear you. Just like you did when you heard the NSA was listening to your phone calls. You know why you didn't hear a outcry from BLACK PEOPLE, because we been being watched and listened to since this fake war on drugs. That's the cold hard facts like it or not. I've always said, if the Govt. had cameras all over the white neighborhoods like they do black ones, they would be outrage. And look, people when crazy about the NSA. But you'll go buy a $500 IPhone with fingerprint lock... SMH!!!

This isn't an excuse to, as you call it, "cry racism" Here are that COLD HARD FACTS: She was arrested based on Wheeling PD off a videotape. A good one, I might add. Turns out that it wasn't her. All after she called for WPD to checked out for RACISM. Now they plastered her name all on this paper with you racists people making your racists comments. Turns our today that it wasn't here that committed that crime. Can You Say: I'm sorry that we made those racists remarks based on NOTHING??? No you will not say that because WHITE IS ALWAY, AND I MEAN AWLAYS RIGHT!!!!!

RichardWhee, You're a fool if you think more blacks are moving here!!!! Last year when I told blacks to flee a lot you on this board said I was a racist. A lot of them took my advice, so I don't know where you get your statistics. Just another hillbilly racist running his mouth!!!

I'm not talking about the RAPE of a woman. I'm talking about there being some racism in Wheeling PD!!! After this incident concerning her there may be some validity to. I don't know how you can have a tape in color and name the wrong BLACK PERSON!!! They do not all LOOK ALIKE!!!!!

RealityPolice, that has nothing to do with the charges lodged against her. If he raped a woman he will pay for his crime, but his mother is apparently innocent of the crime charged against HER!!! The place has cameras so I don't know how Wheeling PD DIDN'T know it WASN'T HER!!!! You can RANT about her son all day. She was charged with a crime!!! If the PD isn't racist, they may have just blew that notion out of the water, because they charged with a crime that she DID NOT, I repeat, DID NOT COMMIT!!! The other things you are talking about will play out in COURT!!! I don't know if she was RAPED. I'm not saying she wasn't. But that has nothing to do with his MOTHER!!!! He's a GROWN MAN in charge of his own life!!!!

Sheila: is that like her comment of, "How can there be a rape when the girl left willingly with her son?" Um, yeah honey, there CAN be a rape because NO means NO. We shall see - obviously the woman has an ax to grind with the police and the city, so obviously every little perceived transgression is going to be met with a lawsuit so her big windfall comes in. Pathetic. The only ones who really get rich are the attorneys who prey on these types.

This is WHEELING for you. I don't know how they can ever pick a jury, because as soon as they say a black person, they're automatically GUILTY!!! Well.... Y'all are going to learn a very valuable LESSON today!!!! Ms. Wiggin, maybe there's some validity of what she's saying!!!

I hate coming to these boards anymore, but I just have to say: WATCH the news tonight!!!! You'll all be eating your words. Just because the POLICE make an arrest doesn't mean a person is guilty. I don't care what her son did, it doesn't mean that she is a criminal. I think she just made her POINT!!! You'll see!!! There's going to be some people on here eating HUMBLE PIE!!!!!

Just FYI - this woman has filed lawsuits all over Wheeling, one is on WV Record from September. Also her FB profile is open and she is saying that SHE didn't take the wallet, but someone else did and now, "She gonna be rich for da police putting her name all over and making her look bad." Her lawyers are out of Pittsburgh; no one in Wheeling want to take her case? This one is a piece of work - everyone owes her, she does no wrong. And remember Cory Henry who kidnapped and raped a woman last year? Well, that would be her SON. She might get citizen of the year!

It’s simply unconscionable that someone could be so racist that they would leave their wallet on top of a gumball machine just to frame that poor black woman who innocently picked it up and took it home. Shame on you, racist wallet leaver.

Wow! I've heard of the crime 'driving while Black' especially in the South.

But, Wheeling apparently has a first with 'shopping while Black'.
