  • APPLESEED, OTHER JUSTICE GROUPS SAY IT'S TIME: BAN USING TASERS, PEPPER SPRAY ON SCHOOL CHILDREN. Only weeks after a student suffered traumatic brain injury as a result of being tased at school, Texas Appleseed is urging the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement to adopt a statewide policy that bans the use of pepper spray, stun guns, and Tasers on students by school police officers attempting to restore order in school. We are part of a coalition of seven civil rights and social justice groups seeking this change to protect children.
