Alphacentaur-As informing as this article is for the public, I would have to say that the first step to good mental health is prevention. I am not asking for help-I have wonderful help. Even educated in this field, I did not understand fully the effects of these illnesses. I did not understand how it changes ones life. I am sure you have seen such stuff and will see more. This is a brain disease, no different than MS, but stereotyped differently. Others should feel free to talk about it and it should never ever be deliberately inflicted by police. I have hopes that is changing with new chief.

They say the first step is to ask for help. Are you asking for help, bloomin. We have seen this a few times before, but the names were different. I wonder what the next name will be.

And by the way, I could care less that the police know my identity. I am the one that was abused for breaking a relationship off with a former fbi agent-David Law of Pittsburgh, the guy with all the automatic guns kept from his former job and fired from his job but protected by the blue shield. Officer Will Ward will burn in*****or on earth, makes no difference to me.

I did not grow up here in wheeling, but at an early age saw peers abused with no place to turn. I chose to go into social work for that reason, and first wanted to work with children. The more I learned, the more I realized that that if I could help the moms, I would be doing more for the children indirectly.That being my goal, I did just that, and worked with abused women for about 10 yrs. until I myself was beat up by a wheeling police officer and now suffer ptsd as a result. So much for a masters degree. It just takes one dirty cop to be angry that women have been getting rights and who hates those who stand up for those who advocate for them. Im sure my post will bring nothing but negative remarks-guess what, I dont give a ****, we are going to trial and a jury will decide-who has all the facts. Wheeling disables women. Why print such stuff in the wheeling paper?
