Allegations that L.A. traffic officers appeared in porn video appalling, councilman says [Video]

 

An L.A. city councilman said he was "appalled and outraged" over allegations that two on-duty city traffic officers participated in a pornographic video using city uniforms and a city vehicle.

"If there is any criminal aspect to this, there will be action," said Councilman Bill Rosendahl, chairman of the city Transportation Committee.

The Department of Transportation employees were placed on administrative leave Thursday pending completion of an investigation, according to Amir Sedadi, the agency's interim general manager. The investigation stems from inquiries by KNBC Channel 4.

According to the station, the video was posted on an adult subscription website and shows an actress approaching a city traffic officer and jumping into his arms.

Here's the full KNBC video:

Jimmy Price and Amir Sedadi should be forced out for allowing this to occur without disciplining those traffic officers. They knew about for months. What a disgrace.

need an investigation of the LA city council, $179k per year, Cola, Perks, furnished car, granted ccw's from the sheriff and much more.

So, what's wrong with helping out the local entertainment industry? Let's keep production in LA!

These are not "officers" they give parking tickets - how smart do you have to be and I am sure they never swore an oath or are even expected to have any morals.

Everyone gets placed on paid leave and go back to work in a week or two. Fire these people!

Unless these employees of the Dept. of Transportation are sworn, and they're not, then they're not officers. "Officer" is a legal term and one cannot be an officer unless one holds an office, and that means being sworn to an oath when one is hired.
