Formal complaint: officer talking on cell phone while on duty directing

Intersection of Franklin and Mt Wayte Ave, at 10:18 this morning
(07/13/2009, Monday)

Check his cellphone.
What's this guy's name?

Short video clip but it stil takes 28 MBs.

How much do they earn per hour on detail according to your new contract?

Are they supposed to be using a cellphone while working?  
I don't think so.

Response from police

According to the chief's response, they can talk while they are allegedly there to direct traffic and earning $43 an hour.

And the police are hypocritical enough to tell us that cellphone usage while driving is dangerous.
