An article called "El Paso County deputy dragged 40 yards after traffic stop" on the Denver post talks about how an El Paso County Sheriff's deputy is recovering after he was dragged 40 yards by an SUV after a Saturday night traffic stop. Witnesses reported the deputy had stopped a dark colored SUV after an argument the officer reached into the SUV and the car sped away with the deputy hanging on to it for about 40 yards before the deputy fell. A resident found the officer laying in front of her house and called 911. This matters because we need to give our officers more thanks because they put there life out on the line for our safety everyday there out on the job.
