Who is paying the Cop to direct traffic when Christ Temple Church lets out?
Who is on the hook for workers comp if he gets hit by a car?
Does he have any authority off duty?
Why if he is off duty being payed on the side would he be arrogant and stupid enough to scream at cars he stopped trying to get on the interstate when he should be praying there isn't a problem that exposes his sweet deal?

Don't other places hire cops? There was a cop at the Big Sandy Arena during an event, I've seen cops at Marquee Cinemas, etc.

Between their 9am & 11am service there are 1000 plus cars there. I don't attend church there but live in that area and have no problem waiting for cars to leave the church. Cops direct traffic at any large event like this. Maybe you should be at church yourself and not worry about what Huntington police are doing and who is paying them.

How old are you? 2? I pray you don't have kids. Folks, if you want to know what is wrong with the generation today, look no further than parents like this. Instead of handling a problem like a grown woman, she comes on here to gripe like she was in 7th grade. I say "woman" and "she" because i PRAY that you are a woman and not a "man"

Red Hen why don't you just stop and ask the cop these guestions instead of complaining on topix. Are you afraid he will see or smell something in your car? Why you are asking these questions, also ask him some other important questions that the citizens of Huntington demand to know:

What toppings does he like on his pizza
Does he like regular potato chips or BBQ
When is he putting up his Christmas tree

This reminds me of the SNL skit from the 70s with Gilda Radner being the news reporter Rosanne Rosannadanna.

. Why does it matter ? The Huntington police direct traffic leaving a Marshall football game or a concert at Big Sandy arena. Why does it bother you they are directing traffic leaving a church. I go thru there around 1230pm most Sundays on my way to work and might have to wait 2 minutes to be flagged thru to get on I-64. There is a lot of cars coming thru that intersection. If the police wasn't there and there was an accident, you would probably be the first one complaining that the police should have been there directing traffic. The police are there maybe 15 minutes. You act like they are there several hours. It's a church service ending not a traffic jam on a Los Angeles freeway.

You shouldn't rely on this site to give you answers. I also agree w/ everyone else, it's none of your concern and besides, it's done for the safety of our citizens, so what does it matter? Get a life.

Red Hen get a life. Was it bothering you so much last night about the police directing traffic outside a church that you were losing sleep and felt the need to post on topix. Why don't you go to Christ Temple next Sunday and leaving the parking lot put your window down and ask the officer the dumb questions you have.

If my eyes are correct, there was a police car with the lights on sitting at the side of the road and the cop was in uniform, that tells me he may not have been off duty. I for one do not have any problem with a cop directing traffic there, how many accidents does he prevent?

He could be off duty and being paid by the church. If he's not, I do agree that I'm not ok with that "church" using my tax dollars so they can run folks through to cash in on their tithes. So long as the organization reaping the profit pays for the service, I think its all good. I would NOT agree with paying for it myself though.

. Our police direct traffic at a lot of events in town where there are a lot of cars coming and going. MU games, concerts, Christmas parade, marathons and on and on. Are you upset since it's a church ? Would you be upset if the police are on duty and directing/escorting a funeral procession or the traffic after a parade ? Have you ever been over there on Sunday when their church services is letting out. You have 1000 cars leaving the church plus cars getting off and on the interstate. It is probably second in traffic flow to a MU home football game on a Saturday. If you are in need of a police officer on a Sunday morning I sure there will be plenty of officers available to respond to your call. You act like we only have 2 officers on duty Sundays.

A big difference here is that the church is a private organization making $$$ off that traffic, whereas a parade is a public event (or MU a public organization). I know of a local theater organization that has a cop direct their parking and security - and have to pay for it directly. My main point is that those who are making $ and need such traffic direction should be the ones paying for it. Its only fair that those who profit from tying up traffic should have to pay the cost of fixing what they created.

Uuh ?? Are you saing that MU makes no money from the traffic of people going to ballgames ? I didn't know tickets were free. I need to call the ticket office tomorrow and get my free season ticket for next year. I'm not a member of Christ Temple but I am a tax paying citizen of Huntington and I along with thousands of other residents have no problem with the police going over there, like a eariler post said for maybe 15 minutes on Sunday morning. Most of that church members are residents of Huntington and pay their taxes also. If the police directing traffic leaving a church bothers you so much, why don't you go over to the police department tomorrow and talk to the police chief.

Who pays him? Is he on duty? Is the City owned cruiser being used for his side job? How is it ungodly or unethical to ask simple questions?
