ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Death: Man Becomes Violent, Lunges at Police, Shot Dead: GA

Paragraphs three and four read: “The officer gave several verbal commands
for the suspect to drop the knife. That’s when the suspect lunged towards
the officer and the officer opened fire,” said Cpl. David Schiralli,
spokesman of the Gwinnett County Police Department.”

“CBS Atlanta spoke to Bagley’s family. They said he was a huge teddy bear
and a wonderful grandfather. They said he suffered from depression since
losing his wife of 15 years a few months ago. He also had congestive heart
failure. He was on muscle relaxers, antidepressants and painkillers. Bagley
also needed oxygen to breathe.”

Family Questions Police In Gwinnett Shooting

Suspect’s Family Questions Police On Shooting Of 59-Year-Old

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Gwinnett police are investigating a shooting
involving an officer at the Tanglewood Apartments in Lawrenceville.

Witnesses described 59-year-old Gene Bagley as irrational and in a daze
Saturday morning as he took a huge knife to a Ford Fusion in his parking lot,
breaking the back window. The owner of the vehicle told CBS Atlanta she
heard the suspect outside her apartment and that’s when she called police.

“The officer gave several verbal commands for the suspect to drop the
knife. That’s when the suspect lunged towards the officer and the officer opened
fire,” said Cpl. David Schiralli, spokesman of the Gwinnett County Police
Department.

CBS Atlanta spoke to Bagley’s family. They said he was a huge teddy bear
and a wonderful grandfather. They said he suffered from depression since
losing his wife of 15 years a few months ago. He also had congestive heart
failure. He was on muscle relaxers, antidepressants and painkillers. Bagley
also needed oxygen to breathe.

”I don’t think he’s capable of lunging. He’s too old and has too many
physical ailments,” said son-in-law Damon Wycoff.

The only conclusion Bagley’s family can come to is he may have mixed his
medications, but they still have tough questions for Gwinnett County police.

“Neighbors say he was shot three times. I don’t understand. He’s a
59-year-old man who can barely breath, overweight. Yeah, I understand he came at
them with a knife, but 3 times I don’t understand. Why couldn’t they use a
Taser?,” asked stepdaughter Maria Wycoff.

The police officer, a veteran on the force, has been placed on routine
administrative leave.

Author: ”Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare – The Complete Truth of the Full Impact of Antidepressants Upon Us & Our World” & Withdrawal CD “Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!”

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!)
