Rainer Klaus Reinscheid, 48, of Irvine, was arrested July 24 on felony arson charges in connection with a series of fires set at University High School, the nearby Mason Park Preserve and the home of an assistant principal this month, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.

After his arrest, investigators discovered emails on Reinscheid's cellphone addressed to himself and his wife from April. He described detailed plans to "burn down University High School, commit sexual assaults, purchase firearms and murder school officials and students, and then kill himself," the district attorney's office said.

Reinscheid, who posted bail the day of his first arrest, was taken into custody again July 27.

Farrah Emami, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office, said prosecutors are unable to pursue criminal charges regarding the threats because the emails were private, but that they would be used during Reinscheid's bail hearing.

"We believe he's dangerous, and we believe he's a risk to public safety," she said.

Officials say Reinscheid's 14-year-old son attended University High School and was disciplined at the school in March. Sometime after that, prosecutors said, the teen committed suicide in the Mason Park Preserve.

@Irishk,
So instead of asking himself whether there's something wrong with his parenting and whether he and his son should have developed better communication and raport, this well-educated professor decides to blame the school for his troubles? Thank goodness his boy didn't get thrown out of a theater showing a Batman movie. Then there would have been real trouble!

How do people lke this get graduate degrees?

@Lustig Andrei,
His area of expertise is apparently schizophrenia, according to an account I just read.

I was more curious about his son, though. According to the school, the 14-year old stole from a fellow student and his punishment was being placed on trash pickup duty.

There's more to this story than we're reading, obviously.
