How sad and tragic that these children are being exploited by getting them to focus on guns as the issue in school violence while allowing the real perpetrators of this violence to not only go free, but to increase the profits of the perpetrators as well as increasing the violence by missing the obvious! After the 3 decades I have spent tracking, investigating & documenting all these tragedies I wonder how long it can possibly take to wake up society to the blatantly obvious?!!! Allow me to explain.
Do guns carry a warning that owning one will cause homicidal & suicidal ideation (Which is obsessive compulsive thoughts of killing oneself or others along with ruminating thoughts of various methods of killing)?
Do bathtubs carry such a warning? Kitchen knives? Bombs? Cars? Buses? Machetes? Hammers? Baseball bats? Crow bars? Hachets? Axes? Shovels? Cross bows? Chain saws? Circular saws? Cars? Buses? Trucks? Planes?
No, not one of them carry those warnings even though I have seen all of those used as weapons in these cases of mass violence. So are we going to ban all of these as well? Of course not!
In School Violence
But there is one very common denominator in all of these tragedies that do actually carry those warnings that they can cause both homicidal and suicidal ideation. Here is a long list of many of those cases of school violence. Let me know if you see the common denominator I am speaking of…
That common denominator you see in these cases is the one big difference we have seen in our society since these nightmares began flooding our world – drugs we call antidepressants! These are drugs identical in action to a slow acting or gradual PCP or LSD effect leading one into hallucinations, suicide, violent crime & psychotic breaks, which reactions have been found to occur at a far higher rate in those under age 25 whose brains are yet developing!!
How insane it would be to ban all these things when all we need to do is to ban the drugs that clearly demonstrate in medical research & in patient reports that they cause this behavior. They also have been found in court cases to produce mass murder suicide after taking only two doses of the drug! (TOBIN vs GLAXO)
Watch this short video interview of the only school shooter to ever explain why he took a gun to School – a hard working 16 year old farm boy, who was very close to his parents, head of his church’s youth group, good student who was finishing up his Eagle Scout & preparing to serve a two year mission for his church. His only “mental illness”? He was shy!….
Now watch this 3 minute video of Mark Taylor, the Columbine Miracle Boy, who survived 7 to 13 bullets that day, as he lays blame at the feet of the FDA, those partially responsible for causing Columbine….
And if that is not enough you can watch this short video statement by Michael Moore, yes the same Michael Moore who produced the movie Bowling for Columbine. If you will recall the purpose of that movie seemed to be getting rid of guns after that mass shooting. But listen to him call that all “BS” after looking at the evidence behind these drugs which have been the common denominator in nearly every school shooting this country has ever seen…
…. see two of my three minute testimonies before the FDA Advisory Committee on Antidepressants & the impact they’re having upon our society as a whole. Then listen to one of my most favorite lectures I gave before several thousand at a Young Living Oils convention, along with fellow speakers Dr. Joseph Mercola & actor Clint Walker of the TV series Gunsmoke.

Stop school shootings.
Ban SSRI drugs!
On Sunday, March 25 at 6:00pm Pacific, RPU will deliver a one-hour, Internet-only video broadcast “For Your Eyes Only” featuring G. Edward Griffin, Alex Newman and special guests Dr. Robin Falkov of Health Freedom Rights and Ann Blake-Tracy, Executive Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness.
The topic of this program will be SSRI drugs as a primary cause of mass shootings, violence, and other aberrant criminal behavior. Scores of killers have been on these “mass-murder pills,” and yet the media, which profits greatly from drug ads, seldom report it.
Here is a short video, WHY I TOOK A GUN TO SCHOOL that tells the story of Corey Baadsgaard who, while out of his mind on SSRI drugs, took a gun to school and held teachers and classmates as hostages. Although he did not harm anyone, he easily could have done so with the least provocation. Tomorrow’s guest, Ann Blake-Tracy, appears in this video to explain the effect of SSRI drugs.
For Your Eyes Only… normally would be open only to those enrolled at Red Pill University as a Mentor or above. HOWEVER, for this broadcast, we are extending the invitation to ALL enrolled students and ALL friends of Red Pill University! Space is limited!
You will receive automatic reminders as the time approaches. This live broadcast is open to everyone. The recording will be available to RPU students at the Mentor level or above.Requirements: Computer or tablet, Internet connection, and speakers.

Many across the country watched the special posted below Sunday night on the 1994 murder case of O.J. Simpson but what no one heard was what seems to always be ommitted from these cases – the meds. This piece of information that came from O.J.’s good friend, Mike Gilbert, came out in a 2006 New York Post article.
The first two sentences read: ” O.J. SIMPSONdid have an accomplice in the murders a criminal jury said he didn’t commit – it was Prozac. That’s according to Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, who says the ex-grid great was flying high on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the grisly 1994 killings.”
Ironically this murder took place the same month that my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, hit the market. The case spanned a total of 11 months. Beginning in November 1994 and the ending October 1995. Of course I called his attorney Robert Shapiro and left the information that he needed to look for a Prozac prescription in this case because there were too many clues for me that O. J. was on the drug this could likely be another case. I also left him information that those with head injuries have more side effects which are more serious side effects than most. The latest stats I have seen indicate that 75% of football players have suffered head injuries.
Here is that full New York Post article on OJ’s case where his friend talks about the reactions OJ was having to his two prescriptions of Prozac.
November 26, 2006 – O.J. SIMPSONdid have an accomplice in the murders a criminal jury said he didn’t commit – it was Prozac. That’s according to Mike Gilbert, a sports agent and longtime pal of Simpson, who says the ex-grid great was flying high on not one, but two prescriptions of the mood-altering drug at the time of the grisly 1994 killings.
“O.J. is very much out of his mind . . . [which] was complicated by the Prozac,” says Gilbert, who adds that Simpson continued wolfing down the drug to help him withstand the pressure as cops put the heat on him. He believes Simpson’s disassociative state from Prozac allowed him to murder and avoid cracking. Over the years, the drug has been blamed for sparking murderous and psychotic behavior. In the wake of Simpson’s sickening attempt to cash in with a book, “If I Did It,” and TV special, both now shelved, Gilbert fumes: “I can’t forgive him for the way he has conducted himself since [the murders]. He’s the kind of guy who, were he on the Titanic, would have taken two life preservers for himself and watched his kids drown.”
Sadly what Mike Gilbert did not understand is that the self centered attitude & lack of concern for his loved ones he described O.J. as having after starting on this antidepressant is a direct side effect of Prozac in creating a narcissistic personality. So what he is saying he cannot forgive OJ for is actually a side effect of the drug.
If you have read my book & are therefore familiar with the REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) chapter, as you watch the video below note how many indicators there are that O.J. could have experienced RBD at the time of the murders. For those unfamiliar with RBD it is the most deadly of sleep disorders where you act out in your sleep the nightmare you are having. We know that 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are taking antidepressants. We also that RBD has long been known to include both murder & suicide & 80% of those who go into RBD hurt themselves or someone else, often with sporadic memory for the incident. And because RBD has long been known as mainly a drug withdrawal state this is Why it is so critical to avoid withdrawal via a VERY, VERY GRADUAL weaning down off antidepressants & avoiding abrupt changes in dose which might trigger RBD…
“And here is a more extensive list of thousands of cases we have gathered over the years: www.SSRIstories.Net
“These cases are very simple to explain and prove in a court of law if you understand that serotonin is what LSD & PCP mimick to produce hallucinations. These drugs are found in 86% of the cases of REM Sleep Disorder (RBD), a deadly sleep disorder long known to include both murder & suicide as the patient acts out nightmares in a semi-conscious or unconscious state. And 80% of those diagnosed with RBD end up hurting themselves or someone else. Since RBD has mainly been known as a drug withdrawal state it is extremely important to wean VERY gradually down off these drugs to avoid the worst of withdrawal.
“The following is a movie clip featuring the only school shooter to date who has spoken out about what happened to him – a hard working well behaved farm boy (16) from Eastern Washington who was finishing his Eagle Scout & preparing to serve a two year mission for his LDS church. His “mental illness” for which he was given an antidepressant? He was shy!
“Why I Took A Gun To School”…
Ann Blake Tracy, Executive Director,
International Coalition for Drug Awareness, www.drugawareness.org, Author: Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! & Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!
Dr. Sanjay Gupta is an American neurosurgeon who serves as associate chief of neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia and as assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Emory University School of Medicine.
He is also a media personality on health-related issues, and best known as CNN’s multiple Emmy Award-winning chief medical correspondent, hosting the network’s weekend health program Sanjay Gupta, M.D., and makes frequent appearances.
And he is one of the finest physicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Besides that he loves the title of my book on antidepressants and all aspects of serotonin, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? As the book examines the research to learn if these drugs are the panacea (cure all) the drug manufactures’ marketing would have us believe as doctors hand them out or every ailment known to man , or are they a Pandora’s Box that once opened unleashing all i’s terrible plagues could never be contained again? From the story of Pandora’s Box: “All at once every evil and spiteful thing flew out like a swarm of insects infesting the Earth with pain and sorrow…t:-) hanks to Pandora life on Earth was never quite so joyful ever again.”)
Dr. Gupta as a neurologist and a professor of neurosurgery certainly would understand more about the brain & brain function than most doctors would. With that in mind LISTEN now as Dr. Sanjay Gupta speaks out about the connection between school shootings and antidepressants after the Sandy Hook school shooting….
SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: The Evidence Antidepressants Are The Cause
Because so many are posting our database of cases of school shootings on Facebook with no explanation of the antidepressant connection, I thought I should post it here on our website as a blog so that it is easier to share with others especially with this latest school shooting in Florida and when yet another school violence episode erupts so they too will have this information to share and educate others about the involvement of antidepressants in school shootings.
President Trump’s Official Statement on Florida Shooting: https://www.whitehouse.gov/1600daily/
My Response: THIS IS NOT A GUN ISSUE AND IT IS NOT A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE! IT IS A DRUG ISSUE – PRESCRIPTION DRUG ISSUE!!! I have worked these cases as an expert for three decades and the common denominator in them all is the use of an antidepressant – drugs that work very similarly to PCP!
PCP & LSD produce hallucinations by mimicking serotonin. And how do antidepressants work? They are designed to gradually increase serotonin so you get a gradual emerging of hallucinations or psychosis. In that way it appears that the patient is going crazy rather than the drug producing the effect thereby distancing the cause and effect and avoiding personal injury lawsuits.
Creative? It sure was! Thankfully if we can get them into court we have been able to show the evidence clearly with even their own experts testifying that what we should expect from the way these drugs act upon the brain is impulsive murder and suicide! The science is clear as a bell! But no one is hearing that because there is too much money being made on these drugs.
Shockingly Prophetic 1999 Pharmacist Comment on Antidepressants & School Shootings in 2019
In about 1999 I was contacted by a pharmacist who said the nicest woman in town had come regularly to get her prescription of Prozac from him until she went to prison for killing her husband. This was one message I received from him that I think the whole world needs to hear……
“The symptoms I see in patients who use/abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over-confidence in one’s own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abuser’s life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton,KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now. The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individual’s persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.
“Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann? Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!”
In Answer to: “Where do these school shooters come from? Broken homes?”
The Question: “Where do these school shooters come from? Broken homes?”
My answer: No! They come from their local doctor’s office after they have been given drugs very similar in action to a slow fuse version of PCP (Angel Dust) or LSD.
The Only School Shooter to Ever Speak Out
to Answer the Question, WHY?
If you watch the video below of the only school shooter to ever speak out about what happened to him while his father sits with him supporting him, you will see no broken home, no previous problems with behavior. This was a wonderful family on a farm in western Washington state with a shy 16 year old boy preparing to finish his Eagle Scout soon and then leave on a two year mission for the LDS Church. His shyness was the reason a doctor prescribed Paxil for him.

Columbine Survivor, Mark Taylor Testimony Before the FDA
News Report: School Shooter and Victim Join Forces
It is NOT mental illness. It is NOT guns, or any
other type of weapon, that fuels the violence…
It is not mental illness. It is not guns, but rather drugs we are calling “medications” which have suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects! And I make that statement after being called as a court expert on these shootings since 1992 and spending 25 years tracking and documenting the shootings. This is the only possible cause that actually admits it can cause this. A gun does not start shooting on its own, but these drugs list homicidal ideation and suicidal ideation as a side effect. Ideation is constant ruminating obsessive and compulsive thoughts of killing along with the same thoughts of various methods of killing…thoughts compulsive enough to lead to action!
From several of the posts on these school shootings on our main web site at www.drugawareness.org I give you the following evidence to prove it is the drugs!

REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) – 86% Antidepressant-Induced
REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) is a condition during which, one lacks to normal paralysis during sleep thus allowing one to act out their worst nightmare in a dream state. (Corey’s case above is a perfect example of this) It is also known that 80% of those going into the REM Sleep Disorder hurt themselves or someone else, including both murder and suicide. Yet how many are aware that 86% of those being diagnosed with this most deadly of all sleep disorders have been found to currently be taking an antidepressant? We do have a Facebook group on this deadly sleep disorder…
To date no research has been done to show how often this happens in antidepressant withdrawal even though RBD has long been known to be a drug withdrawal state. It should be expected to be far higher in withdrawal and yet we already have 86% involving patients currently taking these drugs.
Here is an interesting article on the REM Sleep Disorder:
NOTE: For those of you who follow my work you will notice all of the obvious medication side effects and keep in mind that 63% of autistic children are prescribed antidepressants
…He is currently on suicide watch.
…He heard voices telling him what to do in the shooting (hallucinating).
…He was adopted along with his brother and it appears he was possibly suffering from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome or had been exposed to drugs in the womb.
…He was depressed and in therapy after his mother’s sudden death from the flu in November…
According to the judge in the hearing on the Division of Family Services record held on Monday after the shooting on Valentine’s Day this young man was being medicated for depression , autism , and ADHD . It appears this young shooter had been drugged with these drugs for years and most likely either got an increase in dose in November when his mother died or went off the drugs cold turkey because his mother was not there to force him to take his pills. either way the same resulting scenario could be expected because the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose can produce suicide, hostility, or psychosis. And here is neurologist, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, of CNN confirming that warning…
This was the same scenario with Eric Harris at Columbine. His dose of antidepressant was increased just two months before the shooting even though when first given one of these drugs (Zoloft) within 3 weeks Eric was reporting that he was having homicidal ideation (a listed side effect which is an obsession with killing). So they gave him a different SSRI antidepressant! Why doctors seem to think that they are going to achieve a different outcome if they spell the name of a drug differently even though they work exactly the same is beyond me!
“The 19-year-old who is accused of killing 17 people and injuring dozens more when he opened fire on a South Florida high school Wednesday afternoon told investigators that he heard voices in his head, giving him instructions on what to do to conduct the attack, law enforcement sources told ABC News.
“The voices were described as “demons” by law enforcement sources.
“Those who knew suspect Nikolas Cruz described him as a troubled teen who was largely alone in the world. An attorney for the family who had taken Cruz in after his adoptive mother died said he was “depressed” following her death but had been going to therapy, while a student who participated in Junior ROTC with Cruz described him as a “psycho” who was enthusiastic about weapons.”
Family reported he has been “troubled” for years and was in therapy & thought to be on medication. Both parents are dead, his father died when he was four & his mother died suddenly in November of the flu…
“A relative said Cruz, who was adopted at birth along with his biological younger brother by an older couple, has had a hard few years. His father died when Cruz was much younger and his mother died last year, she said.
“I know he did have some issues, and he may have been taking medication,” said Cruz’s aunt, Barbara Kumbatovich, whose sister died in November. “He did have some kind of emotional difficulties.”
He had obsession with guns, killed small animals, was on medication according to his aunt.
“Roger Cruz died over a decade ago and Lynda struggled with the boys, said Barbara Kumbatovich, a former sister-in-law. “She did the best she could. “They were adopted and had some emotional issues,” she said.
“Kumbatovich said she believed Nikolas Cruz was on medication to deal with his emotional fragility. “She was struggling with Nikolas the last couple years,” she said.
“After his mother died, Cruz moved in with a friend, whose family in Broward took him in and even gave him own bedroom. He worked at a dollar store and went to a school for at-risk youth, said Fort Lauderdale attorney Jim Lewis, who is representing the family.
“Cruz had his AR-15, but the family asked that gun remain locked up in a cabinet, Lewis said. On Wednesday morning, Cruz slept in and gave only a cryptic reason why.”
Most of you may have no idea who Del Shannon is because you are too young. But for us older folks we know that next to Elvis, who was also a victim of these prescription drugs, Del was the voice of early Rock and Roll & was loved worldwide! When he was inducted into the Music Hall of Fame in 1999 it was said, “It would have been better if this had happened while he was still alive, He sure deserved it!!”
This battle for truth about antidepressants began for me the end of 1989/ beginning of 1990. My first booklet, “The Prozac Pandora,” came out in 1991 just before the September 1991 FDA hearing on Prozac.
In those early days I somehow ended up as kind of a mix between historian & librarian for our unofficial anti-antidepressant group. I saw early on how important it was to be documenting what was happening as a result of Prozac, then Zoloft and Paxil, etc, etc, adnauseam. So I began gathering everything and as a result we have an extensive amount of media that no other group has on these drugs.
For years we were the only group working to raise awareness of the dangers of antidepressants. Back then there was actually media coverage on the drugs until about 1997 when they made it legal for pharmaceutical companies to advertise their medications. It was after that that the negative media reports began to disappear. You can find much of those media reports, testimony from victims being given before the FDA during the 1991 FDA hearing, the February & September 2004 FDA hearings & the 2006 FDA hearing on SSRI antidepressants already posted on our YouTube channel. There is still much much more to come as soon as we get help to do the editing and posting of all those videos & audio.
So I am encouraging all of you to go there & subscribe & share those videos as often as you can to help push the channel up in the search engines so that it will be easier for someone suffering from the adverse effects of antidepressants to find the answers they need as to what is happening to them before it is too late for them.
I also feel that it is very important for all of you to know what has already been accomplished and what we know about the birth and development of these SSRI and SNRI antidepressants so that we can better understand what needs to be done next in order to put an end to this Serotonin Nightmare we all suffer.
The Christopher Pittman Case
FInd just one example posted below of an earlier tragedy, mentioned in the title of this post, which CBS’s 48 Hours did a special on covering the case of a 12 year old boy who shot the two people he loved the most in the world, his grandparents, & then burned their home down with them in it and fled in their truck.
I was in touch with a good friend of the grandparents, the local coroner, until his passing a few years ago. He was totally convinced it was the Paxil & Zoloft that led Chris to do what he did. This was very obviously a case of an antidepressant-induced REm Sleep Disorder but how could a 12 year old know that when most doctors do not?
In answer to the question someone just asked about this case posted on our YouTube channel….”Why wasn’t Chris living with his father in Florida?”…
I replied, “That is explained in the video. His mother who had abandoned him as a baby came back home & then left the family again after a very short time causing him to be depressed.
“For years in Florida, & now worldwide, the first answer for what would be a normal reaction to this situation was a prescription for an antidepressant. So Chris was started on Paxil. All antidepressants CAUSE argumentative behavior, as if that is not already bad enough when kids begin going into puberty. So Chris wanted to go be with his most favorite people in the world – his paternal grand-parents in SC. The biggest problem with that is that the doctor in SC, rather than recognizing the serious adverse reactions he was having from Paxil & weaning him off the antidepressant, switched him to another one which works the exact same way even though it was spelled differently. The FDA warned in 2005 that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. Chris had just had Paxil ABRUPTLY discontinued and Zoloft ABRUPTLY started at least doubling Chris’s chances of suicide, hostility or psychosis.
I was a guest on “Court TV” when they covered Chris’s case. They covered two other cases going on at the same time – a 16 year old girl in Idaho & a 16 year old boy in NM. Both had shot & killed their families & both were on Zoloft. As they related these three cases back to back with such similar outcomes they were so shocked by it all that on the air they spontaneously said out loud, “What is it with Zoloft and kids?!”
Clearly when one looks at how rare it is to find a school shooter who is NOT taking an antidepressant, the whole world needs to be asking that same question!!
A federal judge has ruled that the court case filed on behalf of Missouri Foster children for mass drugging with mind altering psychiatric drugs will proceed! The other two groups in America drugged to a similar extent with mind altering drugs are the military and the elderly. (Prisoners are basically in the same category as well but have more say over wether or not they are forced to take the drugs.) And in each of these groups those being harmed by these drugs have little to no say in taking the drugs which are basically being forced upon them. Trial is scheduled for Jan. 14, 2019.
“There are clearly plausible allegations that (the Missouri officials) … actually knew of the serious risk of harm,” Laughrey wrote. “Yet they have not adopted any systematic administrative review because (Missouri) can’t find the medical records of the children. But the absence of the medical records itself creates an unreasonable risk of harm and the Defendants are aware of that risk as well.”
The lawsuit claims psychotropic drugs are often prescribed as “chemical straight-jackets” for some of Missouri’s 13,000 foster care children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or conduct disorder, even though there are few or no federally approved uses for the drugs among children. The plaintiffs also contend little research has been done on how the drugs affect children’s brains and the drugs could cause dangerous side effects, such as suicidal thoughts.”
This is wonderful news that legal action is being taken in behalf of the children! It is long overdue! What has been done to children in this situation four decades is absolutely criminal. The people behind this in many of these cases are literally guilty of murder. Such was the case of little 6 year old Gabriel Myers in Florida who impulsively hung himself under the influence of these drugs. So strong were the adverse reactions he was having to the drugs that he had been switch to a new home after suffering the side effect of homicidal ideation focused on a two year old in the home just two weeks before he suffered the side effect of suicidal ideation which took his life. So while this lawsuit is a big step in the right direction it does not go quite far enough to obtain Justice for these children.
