Researching the common thread in mass school shootings
Anita Robinson, a friend through Republican circles and who does a lot of research, has provided through her investigation, a glimpse into the horrible massacres and suicides sweeping our country. We ask, “Why, why? How could this be?” There is an answer.
Jerome Corsi, Ph.D from Harvard and senior staff reporter for WND (World Net Daily) has said, “We are a society conducting a vast social experiment without knowing its end.”
And what is this experiment? David Healey, London based professor of psychiatry has spoken out about the undeniable risk of SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). They cause a small percentage of patients to kill themselves. He said, “The drugs can make children aggressive and hostile.” Dr. David Healey criticized pharmaceutical companies that have made billions of dollars marketing SSRIs. He said, “The problem today is that doctors working with schools to control the behavior of children are inclined to prescribe SSRI drugs without serious consideration of adverse consequences. There is a very high correlation between mass shootings and the use of drugs.”
The January 2008 New England Journal of Medicine reported that drug manufacturers failed to publish every FDA registered study that didn’t make SSRI antidepressants look good.
Jay Baadsgaard who is the Washington state director for the Internal Coalition for Drug Awareness wants as many people as possible to know what happened to his son Corey.
Here is his story: “A Washington State case that brings it closer to home is my own son, Corey Baadsgaard. On April 10, 2001 Corey was arrested after walking into his English class with a rifle. Fortunately for all, Corey gave up the rifle before harming himself or others. Corey spent 14 months in detention, charged as an adult with multiple counts of kidnapping and $500,000 bail. A forensic psychiatrist that had worked for the prosecutor found Corey in diminished capacity because of the abrupt discontinuation of Paxil and a significant dose of Effexor, wrongly prescribed. The prosecutor agreed to a plea, time served and probation.
“Corey still has no memory of that day at school. Amnesia is listed as a frequent adverse reaction for Effexor.
“Corey has since testified before the FDA hearings in ‘04, which resulted in the new medication guide for all antidepressants.
“Here is the FDA website:
“Here is Corey in his own words:
“Corey is no longer allowed to talk about his experience because of a nondisclosure agreement with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, which paid Corey a large undisclosed amount of settlement which is helping Corey return to college. Corey now lives in Portland and has a good job.”
Ann Blake Tracy, executive director of International Coalition for Drug Awareness, is the author of “Prozac, Panacea or Pandora, and Our Seretonian Nightmare.” She has testified in court cases involving antidepressants. Tracy has been instrumental in forming “The drugging of our children,” a video by Gary Null Productions. She offers a phone number for anyone asking for help with a drug problem: 866-817-5744.
Walter Williams, distinguished professor of economics at George Mason University, writer and commentator, has a replica of the 1902 Sears mail catalog. It shows 35 pages of firearms advertisements. He said, “people just sent in their money and a firearm was shipped. Fathers often gave their sons a shiny new .22 caliber rifle as a birthday present.”
A final note from Jerome Corsi: “You can draw a line between the number of child psychiatrists in the U.S. and the number of school shootings and you will find that both have gone up.”
Our researcher, Anita Robinson said, “The combination of lack of civility, psychotropic drugs such as Prozac and extremely violent video games create these killers. I have a list of the mass shooters and kids that have committed suicide. All of them were on psychotropic drugs.” And now you see the common thread.
