Kinda fast an loose with the statistics in this article. 3,000 complaints and 10% go to hearing. Based on this the Wheeling Human Rights Commission conducted 300 hearings last year. Really??? I bet it is much closer to zero. Then again these are 3,000 phone calls?? Don't have to go to Charleston to call there. I would rather see the health right get money to help sick people than this organization get money to duplicate what the state already does.

Wvuthinking: You are one slanderous girl. I suppose you can tell all the readers about the complaint the police were informed of and then they passed that information on the alleged abuser? What BS. You sound like a girl that needs a human rights commission if for nothing else than to tell stories to.

3,000 Complaints! How many were solved to satisfaction? Can these be documented? Get rid of the d### thing and quit trying to justify this office.

Ms. Garret said she received 3,000 complaints in a year. Seems a bit of an exaggeration to me. 52 weeks in a year each with a two-day weekend for 104 days. At least 8 holidays a year, now we're at 112 days. Two weeks vacation (minimum) for ten more days and a total of 122 days out of the office. 365 minus 122 equals 243 days per year to log 3,000 complaints, more than ten per day. Wheeling's population is what, 26,000? That translates into an average of 8.67 complaints per person! I don't think so.

The State offers the same program and 99.9% of the work is telephone related. Several years ago I checked the activities of this program which consisted of going to luncheons.

What do you see as human rights abuses?

This department should have been dissolved years ago, but I doubt anyone on the city council has the courage to tell the City Manager to pull the plug. This is a worthless duplication of services
