Ashton P. Woods
Houston activist Ashton P. Woods took a trip to Austin to deliver a message: Don’t turn our school agaed children into sheep.
That message is being delivered to a Texas senate committee considering a bill by State Senator John Whitmire of Houston.
The legislation would require schools in Texas to teach students how to properly interact with law enforcement officers if they’re stopped for a traffic violation or other reason.
Senator Whitmire says the bill was designed to keep young people alive in a time when we’ve seen some deadly encounters around the country.
Woods says young people should question authority when it’s needed.
If the bill gets out of committee it will go before the entire legislature next year for possible passage.
