SANTA ANA, Calif. - A [regionally accredited] University of California professor was held without bail Tuesday after prosecutors said they found evidence he plotted to kill students and administrators at a high school where his son was disciplined before committing suicide.

Rainer Reinscheid, 48, an associate professor of pharmaceuticals at the [regionally accredited] University of California, Irvine, is charged with arson for a series of five fires set earlier this month at University High School, a school administrator's house, and a nearby park, where his son killed himself in the spring.

After Reinscheid's arrest last week, authorities found emails on his cell phone describing a plot to burn down the high school, commit sexual assaults and purchase weapons to murder school officials and students there before killing himself, said Orange County district attorney spokeswoman Farrah Emami.

"I can only at this point tell you, he laid out in sufficient detail plans to purchase guns and murder lots of people," Deputy District Attorney Andrew Katz told The Associated Press.

At a hearing Tuesday, a judge denied Reinscheid bail and postponed his arraignment until Aug. 8 after he was charged with five counts of arson, one count of attempted arson and a misdemeanor count of resisting or obstructing a police officer. If convicted, he could get nearly 13 years in prison.

Phone messages left for Reinscheid's attorney Ron Cordova and at a home number listed in Reinscheid's name were not immediately returned.

His 14-year-old son had been a student there and had been disciplined this past spring before he committed suicide at a park preserve.

Prosecutors believe Reinscheid was acting alone but it wasn't clear if he was targeting anyone specifically.

After the emails were discovered, Emami said Reinscheid, who was free on bail, was arrested again.

"The emails by themselves do not support a criminal charge but they do support our argument that he should be denied bail because he's dangerous" Emami said.

Reinscheid has been a professor of pharmaceutical sciences at [regionally accredited] UC Irvine, and has been there for about 12 years, said a university spokeswoman, who referred further comment to authorities.

Authorities said Reinscheid is believed to have set five fires and tried to set another, using newspapers, fireplace logs, a book and other items to ignite them.

They said the fires were set on the high school campus, in the Mason Park Preserve, where his son had died, and at the school administrator's home.

He was arrested at the park preserve on July 24 when Irvine police, who had stepped up patrols in the area because of the fires, said they saw him trying to ignite another one.

Irvine Unified School District Superintendent Terry Walker expressed gratitude to the city's police department for making the arrest. He said district officials would cooperate in any way they could.

"These are extremely disturbing allegations, particularly as they involve the potential safety of both students and employees," Walker said in a statement.

Ian Hanigan, a spokesman for the Irvine Unified School District, said Reinscheid's son, whose name has not been released, was disciplined in March for a theft in the student store, and was punished with trash pick-up duties at lunch.

"It was a relatively minor offense that didn't rise to suspension or expulsion," Hanigan said.

The teen committed suicide shortly thereafter at the park, which is adjacent to the high school.

According to [regionally accredited] UC Irvine's website, Reinscheid's research included studying molecular pharmacology and psychiatric disorders, including studies of schizophrenia, stress, emotional behavior and sleep.

Neighbors say Reinscheid was a comparative newcomer to the tree-lined cul-de-sac of cookie-cutter houses where a number of [regionally accredited] UC Irvine faculty members, current and retired, live within walking distance of campus.

Neighbor and retired math professor George Miller said Tuesday that he only spoke to Reinscheid once, and other neighbors still refer to Reinscheid's Spanish-tiled home as "the Reines house."

That's because the home was previously owned by Frederick Reines, [regionally accredited] UC Irvine's physics professor who was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1995 for his work with Clyde Cowan in detecting the neutrino, Miller said.

Located about 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles, Irvine is home to more than 223,000 people. Its top employer is the [regionally accredited] University of California campus that was founded there in 1965.

Do you think this guy might have been sampling the inventory?

Looking at his Dept. of Pharmacology profile I notice this:
Quote:A knockout mouse lacking the OFQ precursor protein show Very recently we have identified a novel neuropeptide system (Neuropeptide S, NPS) in the brain that promotes arousal and anxiolytic-like effects.

Looks like something got left out. Here's what it probably should have said, from his faculty bio:

Quote:A knockout mouse lacking the OFQ precursor protein shows increased susceptibility to stress and impaired adaptation to repeated stress, but is resistant to the development of morphine tolerance. A malfunction of the OFQ system might thus be involved in the pathology of human psychiatric diseases such as depression, anxiety or drug addiction.

More recently, we have identified a novel neuropeptide system (Neuropeptide S) in the brain that promotes arousal and anxiolytic-like effects.

His bio also misspells "Pharmaceutical" as "Pharmacuetical." Well, that's an easy mistake--unless you happen to work in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences! Seems like the kind of guy who would blame it on his secretary.
Shocking...positively shocking...my wife is a graduate of this UC school. This man was undoubtedly a malignant narcissist, and he probably believed that his son was special, "beyond reproach", as is he! This type of narcissism, has another (potentially lethal) element behind it...sociopathy. Every sociopath is a narcissist, but not every narcissist is a sociopath. Clearly, this man has a serious personality disorder...he would make a most fascinating case study..
Three main branches of psychotherapy exist,or are extant. These are psychoanalysis, behaviorism and humanistic/existentialism. Within these three branches are subdivisions and sub-branches. Gestalt falls into the humanistic field of psychotherapy...it deals with the "NOW"...it is phenomenological in approach and deals with "personal responsibility" and "individual experience"...it should never be an outgrowth of what you are "thinking"...rather what you are "feeling"...the minute a client gets caught up in what they are "thinking"..you start getting bull-shitted!...it's called "intellectualization"...a defense mechanism, that keeps one from getting in touch with the "NOW"...this professor could benefit from an intervention strategy devised to assist him in understanding his injurious choices and how they negatively impacted himself and the community...due to his obvious narcissism and probable sociopathy, I believe it would be difficult to puncture his egocentric demeanor...he's right!... everyone is wrong!...and he's special!... prison is the most effective way in dealing with this type of "human lice"... I don't personally believe (this evil professor), would respond to treatment that well, unless brought under legal control...invariably he will try to manipulate his psychiatrist and the other behavioral scientist's who want to examine his behavioral presentation, in order to understand the etiology of his personality disorder. Treatment modalities for psychopath's are few and far between...these monsters don't change...

Note to U of Illinois Urbana Champaign: This is what real physics professors do. Getting sued multiple times in federal court for stalking, defamation, extortion, computer hacking and civil rights violations is generally not part of the job description. If you have someone on staff who can't distinguish between detecting neutrinos and detecting what someone's wife sounds like when she answers the phone, it might be time for a change.
ROTFLMAO completely OFF!
