School threat suspect denied bail

An 18yearold
Western Albemarle High School student accused of threatening to kill four
students was denied bond this morning in Albemarle County General District
Court.

Patrick Dittmar Crider has been held in Albemarle-Charlottesville
Regional Jail on a charge of threatening to kill or harm someone on school

property in connection with threats made against fellow students on Facebook.
Dr. Vanessa Camperlengo, a psychiatrist specializing in children and
adolescents, testified today that she didn’t believe Crider was a threat to
himself or others.

According to court documents, someone believed to be
Crider had an online conversation Jan. 13 during which threats were made to kill
four specific students the following day. After the shootings, the person
intended to declare his love for a girl and shoot himself in the head, the
records state.

Camperlengo said in court that she believes Crider has
adjustment disorder, and that he reacted emotionally after a stressful event.
Crider had been taking the antidepressant Celexa on and off, Camperlengo
testified, and he reported side effects such as feeling “speeded up” that may
have affected his behavior.

When asked about the Facebook messages,
Camperlengo said Crider was in a specific state of mind.

“I see that as
an stirring excerpt from Patrick at the bottom of an emotional abyss, but that
is not where he lives,” Camperlengo testified.

Darby Lowe, deputy
commonwealth’s attorney, said in court that police had been called previously
when the same victims reported feeling threatened by Crider. That report came
Dec. 11.

Lowe argued that Crider shouldn’t be granted bond.

“If
there is a misjudgment on the part of his psychiatrist, there are lives that
could be taken,” Lowe said in court.

David B. Franzen, Crider’s attorney,
said in court that his client has no criminal record or history of violence.
Franzen argued that his client had a lot of support from family and friends and
could be supervised constantly.

“[He] made an immature judgment,” Franzen
said in court. “Whether or not that in fact was a crime has yet to be
determined.”

Crider is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Feb.
18.

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
