Am I the only one that sees the irony of the guy both speeding and operating his cell phone as a movie camera while driving, in order to bust a cop for distracted driving? Kind of like beating your kid for hitting someone.

Can't wait until for the news report on "Police officer down in Tempe.. As a result of texting while riding his state issued, tax payer purchased motorcycle on duty"

Bad example or Darwin @ work?

Live and let live I say.

"the department says it has policies specifically banning their officers from texting while operating police vehicles"

Oh and just because an act is not illegal does not mean it is not dangerous and stupid.

My point was not that he should be able to text while riding, but that, at least in this instance, the cop was not able to get away with doing whatever he wanted to do as some of the earlier posters complained about.
