Delores should ask the alleged thief at the community meeting ....if you didn't steal the wallet as shown the video by putting it in your pocket and walking out the store - explain to all of us what exactly were you doing?

Clearly a case of abuse and discrimination! The video was doctored by the evil white policeman! Where is Jesse? Where is Al? Time to march! I can't stop laughing. You just can't make this stuff up.

Retaliation by police? Or, the people complaining are criminals that are trying play the victim to get away with their crimes like a child caught in the act. And if that is true, ,wiggins has zero credibility when she finds a true victim.

Release the tape. Wheeling police release all kinds of information about cases. Maybe Kimball can use this to launch his campaign for magistrate.

"Credit to her race". Good one. I haven't heard that line since Wilma Rudoplh ran in the 1960 Olympics.

The black people do have a legitimate complaint. I recall HUD had to intervene in the 90's for racial discrimination in Wheeling. There are no people of color on the various Boards such as WSO or WNHAC.

Some people are always looking for an excuse to cry racism. But in the end they appear to be the idiots. Troublo is- Our fed gov listens to them.

In sparsely populated black areas, many of those with the creditials or qualifications to be on such things as WSO or WNHAC don't want to bother or to be thought of as "token". Just like the lack of minorities on police forces in such cities. Not saying it's right or fair. Just a fact.

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

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

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.

How sad that this pathetic woman thinks that people want to listen to what she has to say.

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!

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!!!!!

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!!!

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.

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!!!!

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!!!!!
