Hey Rod Watson: Why was this kid arrested? Isn't it acceptable for students to slug teachers in Buffalo? Maybe he was just "sassing" the teacher and didn't mean to hit him (or her). How long before he gets out and commits another serious assault? When he does, will that be Dr. Williams fault, too?
Ex-Riverside student gets shock incarceration
D’Andre Smith, a former Riverside High School student, was taken into custody Friday as he was sentenced to a state shock incarceration camp for slugging a teacher seven months ago.
Smith, 17, of East Amherst Street, also will be on probation for three years.
He previously pleaded to third third-degree assault for the incident at the school about 3 p.m. Dec. 18.
City Judge Craig D. Hannah also granted him youthful offender status for the school assault.
