'NOOSE' PROF A PLAGIARISTM
STOLE STUDENTS' WORK AT COLUMBIA

February 21, 2008 -- The black Columbia University professor who last fall found a hangman's noose pinned to her office door plagiarized the work of another faculty member and two students, according to a school investigation released yesterday.

The plagiarism probe was already under way last year when a 4-foot twine noose was discovered on the door of psychology and education professor Madonna Constantine's office, officials at the university's Teachers College said.

It’s obviously a racist conspiracy.

For some reason, her position is secure. Why?

At least two dozen documented instances of plagiarism, and her position is “secure” . . . .

I thought this 1 was determined hoaxed by the idiot herself?

Yeah, it’s a racist conspiracy, and all the liberals on that campus are “racist”. All 1 professor and all 2 students who were plagiarized are the stooges for a campus-wide conspiracy.

I find it really rich that she’s in “psychology”. Sounds like a case herself.

Maybe she can research her own problems and write and unplagiarized academic report on it.

Obviously! This is from the article:

In a statement e-mailed to Bloomberg News Service yesterday, Constantine said she was the victim of a racist conspiracy.

And you answered your own question. It's a racist conspiracy.

No student at Columbia should ever again be penalized for plagiarism. If one is, he/she should immediately file suit using the leniency for this Prof. as precedent for their position.

Maybe she went into the field of psychology because she has a split personality.

One half of her is racist, and the other half was deeply offended by the insult.

And she consoled herself with 2 large pizzas, a half gallon of Maggie Moo's ice cream, and a package of Twinkies.

Why has this scumbag not been FIRED? That's the only acceptable 'discipline' for major infractions of academic dishonesty that go beyond a momentary carelessness..... Two dozen instances of plagiarism over a 5-year period??? This does not sound like any case of minor inadvertent echoing of a phrase or two, but rather deliberate hard-core dishonesty and stealing of the work of others by a fanatical racist leftist hack. No wonder her position is "secure" at the execrable Columbia Teachers' College -- I'm sure the faculty there considers her simply one of them......

"They said they disciplined Constantine for stealing other people's work for articles she published in academic journals. They cited two dozen instances of plagiarism over the past five years that were substantiated in an 18-month investigation by a Manhattan law firm. Teachers College spokesman Joe Levine would not say how Constantine was punished, but college officials said her position is secure"

Now I can stop wondering exactly what strategy Columbia is going to use to distract the public from asking what those security videos revealed. Remember how they were refusing to turn them over to police until they heard police were about to head over with a subpoena to force them to turn them over? But we’ve never heard a peep about what was on them. Maybe the law enforcement computer experts are still working on recovering the parts Columbia erased while stalling on the handover.

I have found that people who suffer from a particular aliment often gravitate to a profession that deals with that aliment.

Plagiarism is a serious problem on campus - especially in the last 10 years with the advent of the Internet.

Students are expelled for much less than what this professor did.

Well, Colombia needs someplace to pour that $45,000 a year that students (well, non-minority students anyway) pay to attend this "Ivy League" university.

Check out this poll at Columbia's student newspaper.
columbiaspectator.com
(scroll down, on the right)

What is your reaction to the news TC Prof Madonna Constantine allegedly plagiarized students' and faculty work?:

Shocked - This speaks poorly of Teachers College and Columbia. 19%

Uninterested - Such allegations are bandied about often, I'm waiting for the full story. 10%

Disgusted - the national media will pounce on the story because of the October noose incident. 18%

Unsurprised - I am of the opinion she placed the noose on her door to distract the administration from her fraud. 53%

OK, so methinks this woman was also “plagiarizing” the deeds of some white and some black racists who have recently been putting up the dreaded noose. Copycat.

Claremont Hate Crime Called Hoax
LA Times (FR thread) | March 17. 2004 | Joy Buchanan, Kristina Sauerwein and Stuart Silverstein

A week after a reported campus hate crime drew national attention, sparked protests and shut down the prestigious Claremont Colleges, police on Wednesday called the incident a hoax staged by a professor who slashed tires, shattered windows and spray-painted racist graffiti on her own car.

Claremont McKenna College psychology professor Kerri Dunn, who had told police that her car was vandalized as she spoke at a March 9 forum on racism, was identified by two eyewitnesses as the person who damaged the auto, authorities said Wednesday.




Professor Kerri Dunn vandalized her own car and then led "Stop The Hate" rallies on campus.
