Associated Press

Students at Little Elm High School are planning more demonstrations after four students were arrested last week at a protest in the school. Students in Little Elm, a suburb of Dallas, decided to walk out of classes Friday after a sophomore publicly accused a freshman of sexually harassing and abusing her. Hundreds of students walked out to protest the administration’s response. Videos widely shared on social media show officers forcibly holding a student on the ground while arresting him. Others show two officers pepper-spraying one student and then firing their tasers at him. School and city officials maintain that the officers were justified in using force.
