In the article "El Paso County deputy dragged 40 yards after traffic stop" by The Denver Post(no name given besides The Denver Post) describes a dispute between a police officer and a civilian that was pulled over. After an argument between the two the civilian drove off with the police officer's hand still in the civilian's car. After 40 yards the police officer dispatched from the civilian's car. This situation is unjust because the police officers should have more authority to make sure something like this shouldn't happen. Instead of the civilian getting hurt, the police officer does. Police should have more authority to uphold the law, instead of having the civilians hurting the police.
