James L. Schaller arrested

Post by Martian » Tue 25 Jan 2011 0:09

So-called "llmd" James Schaller was arrested earlier this month. Allegedly he threatened his son and a friend with a gun. Gee, I wonder how Lymeland will respond to this...

Parent threatens son and friend with gun, deputies say

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Parental guidance took an ugly turn after deputies say a Golden Gate Estates man aimed a gun at his son’s friend and threatened to kill him, according to a Collier Sheriff’s Office report.

James L. Schaller, 50, of the 14500 block of Indigo Lakes Circle, Golden Gate Estates, was arrested at home by Collier deputies and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to the report, Schaller’s 15-year-old son told deputies he snuck out of his house with a 14-year-old friend. When they returned to Schaller’s home, witnesses said, the 14-year-old’s mother was present.

After an argument about returning home, the mother began spanking her son with a wooden switch, Schaller’s son told deputies. When she refused to stop, the 14-year-old pushed his mother, witness said in the report.

That’s when Schaller approached his son’s friend with a handgun, witnesses told deputies.

Schaller pointed the gun at 14-year-old’s head and said, “That is assault and battery, get into the car, or I will blow your head off,” his son told deputies according to the report.

When his son tried to get between Schaller and his friend, he told deputies, his father threatened his son as well, according to the report.

Someone also just posted about this on LymeNUT. Let's see if and how long that thread will last, or if names will be edited out, and what lame excuses to defend Schaller people will turn up with.

When we pretend that wrong-doings are OK by those who say they can treat us we aren't helping fellow patients, but instead those who seek to label us a crazy or deny us treatment.

It is hearsay until it is proven in court.

What happened to the rule of not posting an LLMD's name on lymenet?


Posted by seekhelp (Member # 15067) on 01-24-2011 09:25 PM:

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What shocking news.


Posted by Eliz428 (Member # 21509) on 01-24-2011 09:27 PM:

MomLyme,

Are you seriously trying to say that this post isn't relevant? Are you kidding me. If your child's pediatrician was accused of trying to hurt a child would you not want to know of the accusation so that you could make the decision to go forward with this Dr. or not?

No one is saying he is guilty, just posting facts that are relevant so that people can be in the know.


Posted by momlyme (Member # 27775) on 01-24-2011 09:27 PM:

28 positive reviews for this doctor... and from what I have seen, LLMDs are scarce in FL. This is a shame.

Posted by radfaraf (Member # 11909) on 01-24-2011 09:28 PM:

Seek is that sarcasm?

Do we really believe that not posting names here helps us in any way. It just makes is harder to communicate things that need to be said. It took me only a few days to figure out what all the abbrevations were for when I was new here.


Posted by seekhelp (Member # 15067) on 01-24-2011 09:29 PM:

If someone says this isn't relevant, they are off their rockers! I don't give a crap what the doc treats if they are unstable. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty of course. The moderators will take it down quickly I'm sure.


Posted by radfaraf (Member # 11909) on 01-24-2011 09:29 PM:

It is very easy to get ratemds.com to censor your reviews for you.


Posted by Eliz428 (Member # 21509) on 01-24-2011 09:29 PM:

Positive reviews mean nothing if someone is hurt after those reviews are posted. LLMDs know they are scarce and if they want to stay above reproach, they must act as such.


Posted by momlyme (Member # 27775) on 01-24-2011 09:32 PM:

Teenagers don't always tell the truth! Who knows if this is true or it is a kid making up stories?


Posted by onbam (Member # 23758) on 01-24-2011 09:32 PM:

Our enemies have been trying for a while to portray us as violent and deadly--think back to the church shooting and the child molester who claimed lyme made him do it.

as momlyme said--innocent until proven guilty.

How do we know if those reviews are real? Anyone could post a glowing report on a doctor, including the doctor him/herself!


Posted by Eliz428 (Member # 21509) on 01-24-2011 09:40 PM:

Momlyme read the whole story. The child's mother was there. This was not a kid going home and telling a story to his parents.

This is a serious accusation. I'm glad I know. I have family in Florida who need to know.

He may be innocent, I hope he is, because that is not behavior I would ever want to see from a psychiatrist. Again, that's why it's relevant to know.


Posted by radfaraf (Member # 11909) on 01-24-2011 09:40 PM:

While I agree with innocent till proven guilty, I feel that anyone who says they will treat Lyme can get away with anything in this community and still receive support like they are heros from us. We need to cut that out and have some standards about what is and isn't acceptable behavior from our doctors or we will continue to be taken advantage of and be treated like we are crazy.


Posted by SashaC (Member # 18968) on 01-24-2011 09:44 PM:

Wow, I'm really on the fence with this one.

I don't think anything that goes on in someone's personal life is any else's business, as long as it is not harming his/her professional work.

That being said, I would not want my family members or myself to be under the care of a man with this disposition.

Hmm...


Posted by feelfit (Member # 12770) on 01-24-2011 09:46 PM:

All of those who continue to defend this man are seriously living with blinders on....

this individual has been cited over and over for taking part in questionable behaviors....

true, innocent until proven guilty...

but his behaviors are repetitive...at least what he is accused of....

and his work is also with children.. and, well, that should say enough, speak for itself.
i'm not here to slay the man, but everyone has a right to be informed.

please choose wisely.


Posted by feelfit (Member # 12770) on 01-24-2011 09:48 PM:

OH! and this guy has been known to go by aliases...rate his own books, etc...probably WHY he has 25 glowing reviews on ratemd.com......just sayin'


Posted by radfaraf (Member # 11909) on 01-24-2011 09:50 PM:

Also he has yelled at people on forums and treathen legal action against people who post honest thoughts about what they think about him.

radfaraf, no one said anything about what we believe or don't believe concerning posting names. But not following the rules is a surefire way of getting yourself kicked off lymenet. You wouldn't be the first.


Posted by momlyme (Member # 27775) on 01-24-2011 09:52 PM:

I don't know the man & did not know he had previous behaviors...


Posted by Eliz428 (Member # 21509) on 01-24-2011 09:52 PM:

Rad has made a good point. If everyone being treated for lyme disease wants the obstacles to be removed so that they can get the treatment they need, we need doctors who are setting a higher bar for their own behavior, as well as protecting their patients.

If the lyme world keeps protecting any LLMD at any cost, there will never be any progress with this disease. Wake up everybody. You want to make a difference. Start here!


Posted by radfaraf (Member # 11909) on 01-24-2011 09:53 PM:

I don't really care at this point, I rather have patients informed and me banned than patients taken advantage of and me here.
