Two charged for fight at Durham's Hillside High

Posted May 13, 2010

— Two students were charged with assault Tuesday after a fight at Durham's Hillside High School, a school spokesman said.

When Principal Hans Lassiter tried to break up the fight, one of the students attempted to choke him, Durham police said.

It took the principal, a coach and a school resource officer to break up the fight between Nyron Robinson, 16, and Savian Turrentine, 17, police said.

Both were charged with assault on school personnel. Robinson was also charged with simple assault. Bond for each was set at $1,000.

    My original post was censored by WRAL, so I will attempt another one with a little less rough edges. Basically, this is typical behavior of the "thugs r us" generation. This is why 5 or even 10 years from now, they will be right where they are now...going nowhere in life.

    These thugs shouldn't be allowed back into that wonderful school.
