State Police Plagerism...

So, at work we were talking about buying a Gem electric truck for running PC's and equipment around campus. I was curious about the small Japanese trucks I've seen around factories and stuff as an alternative, so I did some google research and found this page from the Missouri highway patrol. One of the paragraphs sounded like it had been copied off another page - it referenced Best Used Tractors, and sounded like advertising.

So I did a little searching, and discovered it was lifted from this page, for Best Used Tractors.

It's easy to copy stuff on the web, but that doesn't make it a good idea. If you are going to, you should probably copy text that's relevant to the page you are putting it on, and not leave the name of the company that you copied from it in the text. But if you are the freakin' state police, you probably should write your own damn text.
