Plagiarism is just all right with Saddleback? (We illustrate some of Reeve's handiwork.)
|Apparently, Saddleback is OK|
with Reeve's plagiarism
Nothing new here, except:
Reeve also is a part-time instructor at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo. A representative there said Monday that Reeve is still employed at Saddleback.Meanwhile, again, Reeve says he can’t comment about his Concordia departure:
Reeve said he is unable to discuss whether his departure had anything to do with his recent controversies.Illustrating some of Mr. Reeve's curious handiwork:
"Unfortunately, at this time I am not at liberty to comment," he said. "Hopefully that will change in the coming weeks."
|I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss is about. I went to one of Reeve's July 2011 postings on the SJC Patch (at left above) and then I Googled some of "his" verbiage there. Right away, I got hits, including the NRA's "Institute for Legislative Action" website. Chunks of Reeve's "writing" (at left) are the same, word for word, as chunks of the "right-to-carry" verbiage on the NRA website (at right). The latter is dated April, 2010.|

—That doesn't quite capture it, does it? Here, he evidently cut apart and then reassembled others' writings, submitting the product under his own name. The SJC Patch, of course, has presented other examples.
