  • Was closely involved in Sente Kiteway's arrest during the PCAG drug scandal of 2007.
    • Nearly a month later, after Ryan Cahill's full confession and Sente's release, Reed expressed "personal regrets" about his role in the whole sordid affair.

  • 05-JAN-07 - After the Academy-Earth link leak was revealed, Reed stated he would use all of his considerable government connections to get the matter investigated as soon as possible.
    • "The fact that this was able to happen right under our noses, it's just unthinkable. I shudder to think about what this could mean for the Cube, and for our city."
