The issue here isn't a normal turn on a green from the far lane. It is waiting at the left side of the road and then crossing the intersection with the perpendicular green.
Arguably, stopping in the intersection is dangerous. However, if traffic is not moving or one can get off the road entirely, that danger isn't there.
Perhaps this type of maneuver isn't defined as illegal because it isn't a turn per se. Police can always try to fit something into an offense if they want to. That makes it neither illegal or dangerous.
