mass killings being caused by psychiatric drugs

over the past year, the u.s. has been subjected to a number of attacks by lone gunmen.

and immediately thereafter, the panicked sheeple begin to bleat for protection. almost always, this takes the form of more gun control legislation.
the biggest argument against gun control is that laws against owning certain types of weapons will ensure that only the police and criminals will have them. and only a fool would trust the police in this country with their lives.

"According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting statistics, between January 2010 and September 2010, 31 kops per 100,000 committed homicide and 73 committed sexual assault. In comparison to 100,000 of the general population (this includes blacks, whites, Mexicans, gang members etc) only 5 citizens committed homicide and 29 committed sexual assaults.

I'm still amazed at the number of Americans (mostly the older) who still trust persons wearing a uniform of authority. The older demographic was brainwashed so well they do whatever their preachers, police officers, politicians or judges tell them to do. It's this "authority worshiping" and blind obedience that led America to its current police state that houses 25% of the world's prisoners but contains only 5% of the world's population."

- from never get busted; Police Are Twice As Likely To Sexually Assault You And Five Times As Likely To Murder You.

and, of course, there is the little-mentioned fact that while taking away american's rights to self-defense, the federal government has been arming mexican drug cartels for years. this has led to an escalation of over-the-top violence which is spilling over the u.s. border and into american cities. more than 60,000 people have died in the violence in mexico so far, and the obama administration's biggest contribution to the war on drugs scam (other than the weapons - thousands of assault rifles, pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and ammunition too) has been to go after legal medical marijuana users and providers.

but while the media - as always - repeats the same old song-and-dance routine to prevent even the possibility of any meaningful discussions of just about anything of significance, there is the always over-looked but obvious point that these lone gunmen are CRAZY!

not just crazy in the sense that they are barking mad and dangerous, but crazy as in diagnosed and under the care of psychiactric doctors. which means that they are under the influence of prescription drugs.

there is much, much more to this story, from We Are Not Afraid of Ruins

Kinkel had been taking the antidepressant Prozac. Kinkel had been attending "anger control classes" and was under the care of a psychologist.

from The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR)

more from the cchr website:

The psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry spends billions of dollars a year in order to convince the public, legislators and the press that psychiatric disorders such as Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, etc., are medical diseases on par with verifiable medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. This is simply a way to maintain their hold on a $84 billion dollar-a-year psychiatric drug industry that is based on marketing and not science. Unlike real medical disease, there are no scientific tests to verify the medical existence of any psychiatric disorder. Despite decades of trying to prove mental disorders are biological brain conditions, due to chemical imbalances or genetic factors, psychiatry has failed to prove even one of their hundreds of so-called mental disorders is due to a faulty or "chemically imbalanced" brain. To counter this obvious flaw in their push to medicalize behaviors, the psychiatric industry will claim that there are certain medical conditions that do not have a verifiable test so this justifies the fact that there aren't medical tests for mental illness. This is frankly a lame argument; Whereas there may be rare medical conditions that do not have a verifiable medical test, there are virtually no psychiatric disorders that can be verified medically as a physical abnormality/disease. This is not to say people don't get depressed, sad, troubled, anxious, nervous or even sometimes act psychotic. The question then is simple—is this due to some mental "disease" that can be verified as one would verify cancer or a real medical condition? And the answer is no.

people frequently ask if CCHR is of the opinion that no one should ever take psychiatric drugs, but this website is not dedicated to opinion. It is dedicated to providing information that a multi-billion dollar psycho/pharmaceutical industry does not want people to have. For this reason CCHR created the psychiatric drug side effects search engine which consists solely of international drug regulatory warnings, published studies and adverse reactions to psychiatric drugs filed with the U.S. FDA. Regarding psychiatric diagnosis, it is not a matter of opinion about whether mental disorders are "real" but whether there are valid medical tests to prove mental disorders are medical conditions requiring the administration of mind-altering and potentially lethal psychiatric drugs—and the answer is no.

Crazy takes drugs but its not crazy that kills its the drugs? Pretty weak argument honestly. How we choose to numb ourselves in dealing with stress....sure. maybe a chemical imbalance sometimes antidepressants do have positive effects I can speak from personal experience though not positive definitely not overwhelmingly negative. What about the parents, or evangilical christianity, or video games or eminem or living in a world where there is no fufure no future no fuure....seriously. The kid shot his mother....maybe he was legitimately insane. Maybe theres noone to blame. Who knows.

........

These problems run so deep. Lonely narcissistic alienated from society. I mean, I'm no Freudian but Thanatos?

Anyway, the problems run so much deeper than gun violence...in many countries where the gun laws are stricter you see these oroblems manifest themselves in suicide (Iceland), teenage sexual violence, or to put it bluntly gangrape, epidemic gangrape (France), but this whole "we need the guns to protect ourselves fromthe police," yeah, in the abstract sure, but how often do teen shooters go after killer cops? Its a cute argument, but seriously, Chris Humphries went to work today but 20 little people wont get up for sunday mourning pancakes. The problems here are with the parents the family society and yeah...no future. We have no future. We as a species are doomed. These sociopaths are essentially mimicking their environment, and destroying everything in sight. But antidepressents don't do this. There's a little evidence they play a factor esoecially in younger folk, but seriously.....

I mean your own mother?

" sometimes antidepressants do have positive effects " 18.Dec.2012 14:03

who knows

Asperger's / autism = violence ? No. Not without psychotropic meds

Nobody is saying that Asperger's or Autism is the cause of the violence. It is the medications used to treat those conditions that have a long record of triggering suicide and violence.
