So you would prefer for the officer to not be able to relay or take in information while driving? You'd prefer the officer to have to park the cop
car and then use the radio com? What if the info he's getting through the com is important, what if it could save lives, isn't that worth the very
slight risk of driving while using it?
Besides, a cell phone usually relays unimportant info that distracts or emotionally affects a person (personal life stuff, gossip, etc) but usually
that kind of stuff isn't what's coming through a police radio.
Police, taxis, EMTs and fire fighters all have this kind of stuff and I don't see what's wrong with it, they need these communications in the line
of duty while other citizens do not need to be yapping away on cell phones.
I agree that if the guy had a partner he should have been the one using it but maybe it was a spur of the moment decision on the part of the officer,
a momentary laps of judgement.
