PTSD 14 Dead in Shooting in Upscale Quiet Thousand Oaks, CA

This shooting did not completely grab my attention until I heard it happened in my old home area of Thousand Oaks/Newbury Park where I lived for a year just over the hill from Dean Martin. (I was on the wrong side of the hill.) But it is a really quiet, laid back area where these things do not happen, even in bars.

Ian David Long, Before Meds?

 

Ian David Long, After Meds?

 

The shooter Ian David Long, 28, was an ex-Marine who was honorably discharged in 2013. Curtis Kellogg, a friend who served with Long, said Long headed to Southern California to pursue a degree in sports medicine after his service in Afghanistan. And as this article does point out he had mental health issues – PTSD for which the military freely hands out antidepressants which CAUSE PTSD!

You can see in his face in these two pictures and in Heather’s pictures below the toll these drugs can take on someone. So relaxed before yet so very stressed and burned out after the cortisol levels (the stress hormone) are jacked up so high with an antidepressant (DOUBLED with only one dose!)

To see extensive video coverage of the shooting and latest updates you can go to this link to the Associated Press coverage on it:

Heather Locklear?

My first thought upon hearing this news that this happened in Thousand Oaks, home of Heather Locklear, was “I hope it was not Heather going off the deep end yet again on her antidepressants!” She was arrested twice earlier this year for attacking officers and in another incident where she nearly bit off her boyfriend’s nose! No surprise with biting being such a common adverse reaction to antidepressants.

Here is a video list of those 68 shootings with list of related medication:

 

Elevated Serotonin is the Key to Violence

Everyone has heard that serotonin is this wonderful “happy” chemical we need to no longer be depressed or anxious while the research for decades before these drugs hit the market told us the exact opposite! Serotonin produces all kinds of mental issues, including depression, anxiety, suicide, psychosis, violent crime, etc.

21 Dead 65 Wounded in School Bombing/Shooting in Russia

 

An 18 year old student in Crimea, Russia, Vladislav Roslyakov, killed 19 of his college classmates & himself Wednesday, October 17. Below is whatc we know along with two hours total of raw footage taken of me by a Russian camera crew a decade ago for a documentary they did on these drugs in the hope it would prevent this from happening in their country.

What we know so far about this shooter/bomber:

1. Shooter was very shy, mother was a nurse & parents divorced:

“Most of what we know, so far, about Roslyakov comes from the tabloid Mash, which says he was a “shy young man who spoke to almost no one and who long ago deleted all his social media accounts.” Apparently, he also had an unhealthy interest in serial murderers. Roslyakov’s parents are reportedly divorced and he lives with his mother, who works as a nurse at a local oncology clinic.”

https://meduza.io/en/feature/2018/10/17/meet-vladislav-roslyakov-the-man-behind-crimea-s-college-massacre

2. His mother was a nurse who worked on the victims & attempted suicide when told her son was the shooter. Was she on the same antidepressant her son was on? I cannot count the number of cases I have medical professionals and their family members involved in these tragedies and all on antidepressants! I have been making that statement for two decades.

“Vladislav Roslyakov, 18, stalked his college halls with a shotgun and let off homemade explosives before killing himself in the school library at Kerch Polytechnic College.

“His mother, Galina Roslyakova, a nurse in Kerch Cancer Clinic where some victims of her son’s violence were brought, was said to have been among those who provided first aid to victims. She is understood to have tried to take her own life after hearing what her son was alleged to have done.”

3. Was a fan of violent video games

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6289453/Students-run-lives-gunman-opens-fire-videos-inside-Crimean-massacre-college.html

 

In this video the Russian Times compared this attack to America’s Columbine massacre. And this was my comment on their video:

“I was called in as the main expert in the Columbine shooting. I would point out that the only thing you missed in comparing the two shootings was the “medications” the shooters were on. Eric Harris was on the antidepressant, Luvox, at the time of the shooting. His dose had been doubled two months before in spite of the fact that after only six weeks on Zoloft, the first similar antidepressant Eric was given, he complained of it giving him homicidal thoughts. Clearly the doctors thought the same because they took him off Zoloft. But then put him on the exact same type of drug, Luvox, although it had a different name, expecting it to have different results! Brilliant?! The world witnessed the fact that drug produced the same effect as the first antidepressant!

“Your shooter there was shy & quiet for which they often prescribe antidepressants. His mother was also a nurse who would have believed in using medications without hesitation. She too attempted suicide after the shooting. Was she on the same antidepressants her son? And what was he on? Those are critical questions that need to be answered.

“I did a long interview for a Russian news crew a decade ago for an hour long documentary they did hoping to prevent Russia from going through what we are going through here in the US. Obviously it did not get enough attention to prevent this horrific tragedy. PLEASE educate your viewers there before you end up with lists like this one of ours where 68 out of 70 shooters were all found to be taking antidepressants!!!”

Science Behind Shooters & Medications Interview With Ann Blake-Tracy

The Conspiracy Show:  Mass Shootings and Mind Altering Drugs

 “Are money hungry Drug companies creating lone gun terrorists,

then trying to hide their complicity?”

September 16, 2018, with Richard Syrett, Toronto, Canada

 

Guest(s) Appearing on this Episode

Ann Blake-Tracy 

Bio: Ann is the author or the first book ever written on the adverse effects of SSRI antidepressant medications & other drugs designed to increase serotonin. That book, The Prozac Pandora, a basic introduction to potential problems with this class of drugs, came out in 1991, just before the first FDA hearing on Prozac. By 1994 that had expanded into, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? The Rest of the Story, a large text on these drugs & the damaging effects of increasing serotonin, which had long been known in medical science as a “stress neuro-hormone.” The book was being ordered by the case by EMTs to hand out on calls after becoming alarmed by how often they were seeing these drugs in all the emergencies they were called out on. A pharmacy students were discoveringenough about these serotonergicdrugs after the book becoming required reading in their pharmacy class that one student even wrote a popular rap song to address it called “Get Off The Pharm!” That first edition was followed by a second edition in 2001 and a third edition on this Prozac family of serotonergic drugs in 2014  available only as an ebook on our drugawareness.org website & titled, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!

Since 1992 Ann has testified as an expert witness in Prozac and other SSRI related court cases around the world. Some of the more high profile cases she has worked on would be the murder/suicide of comedian Phil Hartman and his wife Brynn, the Columbine & Red Lake School shootings, Andrea Yates – the Texas mother who drowned her five children, the Atlanta Day Trader, Princess Di’s death, the murder/suicide of the royal family of Nepal, Anna Nicole Smith’s son Daniel’s death, etc.

Ann Blake-Tracy will amaze you with documentation as to how often these drugs have lurked silently behind the scenes of major headlines worldwide!! To get an idea of the types of reactions & how often we are seeing these in the news go to www.drugawareness.org for breaking news cases and www.SSRIstories.NET for our database of thousands of articles on patients on these drugs and the adverse results appearing as headlines. These are cases which Ann Blake Tracy, along with many of our directors, over the years have been gathering since 1990. Then our Texas director, Rosie Meysenburg, along with her husband Gene, began to post the stories into an online database in 2006. With only a handful of individuals gathering the cases it should be clear that this shocking list is only the tip of this iceberg of horrifying antidepressant-induced nightmares!

Serious New Warnings on Fluoroquinalone Antibiotics

As Usual New FDA Warnings Come Decades Too Late

Mid July 2018 the FDA strengthened their warnings on a group of very troublesome antibiotics which have long been all too commonly prescribed to treat a variety of illnesses such as respiratory and urinary tract infections. In fact I recall warning my own father about these drugs two decades ago! The warnings are extensive and serious – especially so for those with blood sugar issues or those over 60. The warnings are related to mental health issues and severe low blood sugar and as always, are coming much too late for many. This is the very reason our International Coalition for Drug Awareness (ICFDA) was formed. Our mission statement reads:

The International Coalition for Drug Awareness (ICFDA) is a private, non-profit group of physicians, researchers, journalists, patients, and concerned citizens.

“Our primary focus is to address the world’s most pervasive and subtle drug problem—prescription drugs. We are dedicated to educating the people of the world regarding the potentially harmful and life threatening short term and long term effects of these drugs we call “medications” along with the serious problems associated with the unethical marketing techniques of pharmaceutical companies and the off-label prescribing of these drugs by many physicians. As the cause of an estimated 200,000 plus deaths per year in America, drug reactions are now the third leading cause of death!

“The most dangerous period of time for a drug to be on the market is upon market introduction. At that point, physicians and their patients have available to them only the information on adverse reactions present in the controlled environment of a clinical trial. But they remain unaware of the potential adverse reactions of these new drugs when dispensed to the general public. We, therefore, feel there is a need to track and report patient reactions more carefully and more rapidly than what is presently being done, which should result in lower medical costs for the patients and doctors as well. And this also should begin to bridge the gap between well-meaning doctors and maltreated patients.
“By keeping prescribing physicians and their patients abreast of recent adverse reaction reports and approved uses of drugs as opposed to their off-label uses, we hope to cut the number of unnecessary deaths due to drug reactions and interactions and lessen the number of malpractice suits filed against physicians as a result of those reactions. Beyond this public education process, our intention is to serve as a watchdog group over the FDA and similar organizations around the world, encouraging them to remove drugs which demonstrate high numbers of dangerous adverse reactions and threaten the public safety.”

Did Your Mental Health Diagnosis Come From an Antibiotic?

Perhaps one of the most troubling of these warnings issued this summer by the FDA is that PSYCHIATRIC ADVERSE REACTIONS MAY OCCUR EVEN AFTER ONLY ONE DOSE!!!
  1. The Fluoroquinolone antibiotics include Avelox (moxifloxacin), Baxdela (delafloxacin), Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Factive (gemifloxacin), Levoquin (levofloxacin), Avelox (moxifloxacin), Noroxin (norfloxacin), and Floxin (floxacin). Baytril (enrofloxacin) is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic often prescribed for pets by veterinarians & sold by the Bayer Corporation under the trade name Baytril. (One pet owner reported all three of her pets became paralyzed by this drug.)

And here are those new warnings to doctors and patients:

“With regard to fluoroquinolone use, healthcare professionals should be aware of the following:

  • There is a potential risk of hypoglycemia associated with use that sometimes may result in coma; elderly patients and those taking oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin may be at increased risk
  • Psychiatric adverse reactions may occur even after just one dose
  • Treatment should be discontinued if patients report any CNS side effects, including psychiatric adverse events, or blood glucose disturbances; switching to a non-fluoroquinolone antibiotic should be considered if possible
  • If serious side effects involving the tendons, muscles, joints, or nerves occur, treatment should be stopped and patients should be switched to a non-fluoroquinolone antibiotic
  • Fluoroquinolones should not be prescribed for acute bacterial sinusitis, acute bacterial exacerbations of chronic bronchitis, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections if patients have other treatment options because the risks outweigh the benefits in these patients”

Excellent Advice to Protect Loved Ones

In this video below is a very bright woman who gives you excellent examples on how to protect your loved ones from hospitals and drug pushing doctors who are ordering unnecessary drugs and procedures especially among the elderly. And she points out that they do not even have to disclose what they are giving your loved one and will often order those in the middle of the night when no one is around to notice!

She discusses not only these fluoroquinolone antibiotics the FDA has just now warned about, but also the statin drugs with similar very serious issues….and she will make you laugh as well – always a very healthy practice to engage in! 🙂 🙂 🙂

 

Special Warning for Those on Antidepressants or Atypical Antipsychotics:

Fluoroquinolones Also Increase Serotonin Leading to Serotonin Syndrome

As most of you have followed my work on antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics you know I am always checking to see which other drugs on the market may be increasing serotonin as well thus producing interactions with these drugs. And of course these fluoroquinolone antibiotics with these strong warnings of psychiatric side effects do that and they can cause the deadly Serotonin Syndrome when taken with the antidepressants or atypical antipsychotics. Here is an excellent and very extensive NIH study on Serotonin Syndrome discussing these interactions:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3865832/

 

Lawsuits Are Being Filed AS Well

Just look for statements like this one on attorney’s websites:

YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR A FLUOROQUINOLONE INJURY OR WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM IF YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER TOOK THE DRUG AVELOX, CIPRO AND/OR LEVAQUIN

AND IF YOU WERE LATER DIAGNOSED WITH PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY.

Available Today Only – Foods That Heal Depression & Anxiety

This is an EXCELLENT piece on healing foods. Interestingly these are the same foods I turned to 45 years ago to overcome the cancer that ravaged my body & threatened my life. What surprised me was to see the amazing clarity of mind I saw almost immediately. Obviously it helped me overcome the cancer since I am still here & have felt no need to see a doctor for any reason since that time. But it has also given me insight into healing from the damage caused by the use of these deadly drugs we call antidepressants.

If Johnathan Otto introducing this video understood more about antidepressants & benzodiazepines he would not try to make this an easier change in diet by allowing those damaged by these drugs to fudge on the strictness required for healing. If he understood the highly protein binding (98%) aspect of these drugs he would understand that to flush these drugs from the  this strict change is required. I am especially concerned about the Lewy Body’s Dementia (large clumps of protein building up in the brain) suffered by Robin Williams on these drugs & the close connection of Lewy Body’s Dementia to the most deadly REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) when 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are on antidepressants.

Until we have the answer to the following questions I believe it is best to stay on the side of caution & follow the wisdom shared about the diet shared by the following experts.

1. Does the high protein binding aspect of these drugs known to accumulate at a very high rate in brain tissue produce these large clumps of protein to build up in brain tissue?

2. And does this protein binding aspect of these drugs prevent the drugs from being flushed from the body & brain?

Studies: 27% – 86% Suffer Antidepressant Withdrawal

In this world of fake news and the non-existence of investigative reporting both Sarah Boseley and The Guardian have long been a breath of fresh air and deserve a medal for their reporting! The only problem with this one is that the research they are reporting on is three decades too late! But it is because of their efforts as opposed to the lack of efforts by others that I include their request at the end of this article for donations as they are independent in their reporting.

 

For two and a half decades I and the International Coalition For Drug Awareness which I head have been warning about the dangers of withdrawal with a streaming ribbon across the top of our web page (www.drugawareness.org) warning that abrupt or rapid withdrawal can prove to be more dangerous, disabling, and last far longer than a very slow, careful, gradual withdrawal. Most confusing is the fact that the worst of the withdrawal can be delayed six months or longer depending upon the length of time on antidepressants. And for those on the drugs for ten years or more the delay can be even longer. In 1999 I finally tired of repeating over & over & over again one patient at a time all the information on safe withdrawal & published an hour & a half long CD on safe withdrawal & withdrawal tips on easing withdrawal effects which has more informationabout these drugs than you can find in years of research! You can find that in a downloadable version for just under $5 at the following link:

Help! I can’t get off my antidepressant! [Mp3 Download]

The chapter in my book on these antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare, discusses the amazing similarity of these serotonergic antidepressants to Phencyclidine (PCP, “Angel Dust),” a medication pulled from the market only a few years before Prozac was introduced in the US and a drug in the same family as Ketamine now being pushed for treatment of depression! So what is most interesting considering the information in this article about those on antidepressants not wanting to attempt withdrawal because it is so horrible is that is exactly the reason people reported not wanting to withdraw from Phencyclidine (PCP, “Angel Dust”)! Reading the reports of those on both drugs was almost identical with them even using the exact same words to describe their experience! Seems history is repeating itself once again….and ironically these are the drugs people being forced off the opioid pain killers are being given as a replacement in spite of the fact that patients on them have reported for decades that coming off an antidepressant is far more difficult that getting off opioids!

Another helpful place for those looking for support as they go through the withdrawal process is one of our many Facebook groups. To find one just type in the name of the drug you are withdrawing from followed by the phrase “Should Be Illegal” & you will find thousands of others going through the same things you are. For example “Prozac (Fluoxetine) Should Be Illegal”

 

Antidepressant withdrawal symptoms severe, says new report…

Existing guidance that symptoms are minimal leads to misdiagnosis and ‘harmful long-term prescribing’

‘The withdrawal effects if I forget to take my pill are severe shakes, suicidal thoughts, a feeling of too much caffeine in my brain, electric shocks, hallucinations, insane mood swings,’ said one patient in a study. Photograph: Steve Debenport/Getty

Half of all those taking antidepressants experience withdrawal problems when they try to give them up and for millions of people in England, these are severe, according to a new review of the evidence commissioned by MPs.

Guidance from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice), which says withdrawal symptoms “are usually mild and self-limiting over about one week” urgently needs to be changed, say the review authors.

Dr James Davies from the University of Roehampton and Prof John Read from the University of East London say the high rate of withdrawal symptoms may be part of the reason people are staying on the pills for longer. They cannot cope, so carry on taking the drugs, or their doctors assume they have relapsed and write another prescription.

The review was commissioned by the all-party parliamentary group for prescribed drug dependence and follows a long debate about the Nice guidance, which critics say is out of date.

Modern antidepressants of the SSRI class, such as Prozac (fluoxetine) and Seroxat (paroxetine), were marketed in part on their safety. Studies showed that when taken alone, overdoses were rarely fatal, which was not the case with benzodiazepines. Also, stopping the drugs was said to be easier.

This new review of the research reveals what many patients have known for years…Dr James Davies

There have been plenty of anecdotal accounts of withdrawal symptoms, which include dizziness, vertigo, nausea, insomnia, headaches, tiredness and difficulties concentrating. But the Nice guidance said in 2004 that the withdrawal symptoms were slight and short-lived and was re-adopted without further evidence in 2009. It is similar to the US guidance, which says symptoms usually resolve within one to two weeks.

The review, published in the journal Addictive Behaviors, focused on 14 studies of antidepressants that had relevant data on withdrawal symptoms. The studies, which were diverse, showed that between 27% and 86% of people suffered from them, with a weighted average of 56%.

Antidepressants are now some of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the UK and US, say the authors. “In the UK, usage has risen since 2000 by 170%, with over seven million adults (16% of the English adult population) being prescribed an antidepressant in England alone last year,” says the review.

About half of antidepressant users have been taking the pills for longer than two years. In England, that is 3.5 million people – 8% of the population. In the US, 13% of the population (37 million adults) were on them by 2011-2014, official data shows. Half have been taking them for five years or more.

“This new review of the research reveals what many patients have known for years – that withdrawal from antidepressants often causes severe, debilitating symptoms which can last for weeks, months or longer,” said Dr James Davies.

“Existing Nice guidelines fail to acknowledge how common withdrawal is and wrongly suggest that it usually resolves within one week. This leads many doctors to misdiagnose withdrawal symptoms, often as relapse, resulting in much unnecessary and harmful long-term prescribing.”

In addition to updating the existing evidence reviews, we will include new work on patient choice Nice
The review includes comments from some of the studies where antidepressant users were interviewed about their experiences of trying to wean themselves off the pills.

One spoke of “horrible dizzy spells and nausea whenever I lower my dose”. Another said: “The withdrawal effects if I forget to take my pill are severe shakes, suicidal thoughts, a feeling of too much caffeine in my brain, electric shocks, hallucinations, insane mood swings … kinda stuck on them now coz I’m too scared to come off it.”

Sir Oliver Letwin MP, chair of the parliamentary group, said: “This systematic review provides important new data on antidepressant withdrawal which will be considered by Public Health England as part of their current review into prescribed drug dependence. The data suggests that existing medical guidelines in this area should be urgently updated to reflect the fact that antidepressant withdrawal is much more common, severe and long-lasting than previously stated. Furthermore, we hope that other medical bodies will take note of this new research, and update their own guidance accordingly.”

Nice said it is looking again at its guidance. “In July 2018, the committee met and concluded that the current evidence base needs updating to include research from July 2016 onwards. Nice agrees,” said Paul Chrisp, director of the Centre for Guidelines at Nice. “It is important that the final recommendations are based on the most up-to-date evidence possible. In addition to updating the existing evidence reviews, we will include new work on patient choice and a focus on shared decision making.

“We hope the final guideline will allow people with depression to be offered the best treatments and reach joint decisions about their care that reflect their preferences and values.”

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/oct/02/antidepressant-withdrawal-symptoms-severe-says-new-report

• This article was amended on 3 October 2018 to clarify how overdosing on SSRI antidepressants differs from overdosing on benzodiazepines.

Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Guardian than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce.

The Guardian is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias and not influenced by billionaire owners, politicians or shareholders. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support the Guardian – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

New Normal? 6 Dead in 3rd Deadliest Shooting This Year

Sheriff Bakersfield shooting rampage that left 6 dead is “New Normal”

I can tell the sheriff WHY this is the “new normal”! Perhaps he has forgotten having to pick up Roseanne Barr years ago while under the influence of Prozac when her way to Salt Lake City to kill her parents because her Prozac delusions we’re leading her to believe her parents had sexually molested her at only 6 months of age. Years later while appearing on Oprah this is something that she publicly stated was the result of adverse reactions to her medication. You could tell how difficult it was for her to even discuss and she called it “the biggest mistake” of her life. Of course this was after coming off the drugs and realizing what had happened. I was overjoyed to see her angel mother next to her as she told the world the truth about what happened. Sadly her father passed away before he had a chance to hear it. What these drugs are doing to destroy family relationships in so many ways is absolutely criminal!

Find the rest of the story on this Bakersfield shooting in he LA Times article below…

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-bakersfield-shooting-20180913-story.html

 

Rosanne Barr

Adverse effects can come quickly and with much intensity for people with serious head injuries like Roseanne had when she was only 16. This was a life threatening injury where she was hit by a car leaving her with the hood ornament imbedded in her forehead! So where was her warning? Where is  that warning with these drugs? Why was that never given?

Head Injury & Antidepressants

 

Jason Hairston & Donald Trump, Jr.

 

Is that lack of warning why Donald Trump Jr’s hunting partner, a former San Francisco 49er, Jason Hairston, also a survivor of a very serious sports related head injury,  just days ago killed himself? I have very little doubt! The last stats I heard found that 75% of football players have had head injuries & everyone wonders why it is often men who have these adverse reactions resulting in violence from these drugs?

The only antidepressant I have seen carry very strong warnings about taking it if someone has had a serious head injury is Wellbutrin. Yet the rest of them, as far as I know,  have never carried the warning for those with previous head injuries.

ANTIDEPRESSANTS & HEAD INJURY: TEEN STABBED MOTHER , BROTHER & SELF TO DEATH

 

“New Normal?”

This is not new!  We have seen serotonin induced violence long before this and in fact  Sheriff  it was law enforcement and judges who put an end to it then because of the extreme violence they saw as the result of it. And what was it Sheriff? It was PCP, a  drug which mimicked serotonin. It was on the market for 7 years with the public being told the drug had a large margin of safety in humans. Obviously as everyone learned that statement was far from correct!

That drug was pulled from the market right about the same time that Congress banned another drug which mimicked serotonin. That drug had produced much suicide across the country along with the Public’s introduction to the violence it could produce in the way of introducing the world to Charles Manson. That drug was LSD, the CIA drug of choice or mind control. The same drug that the CIA used 80% of their initial budget to purchase all of the LSD that Sandoz pharmaceutical had on hand to use in their mind control experiments. We learned later that most of those CIA experiments we’re done on the General Public and the military. Is that what we are seeing again? To me it seems more than obvious.

This is the “new normal” Sheriff because there is just too much of everything that increases serotonin which results in the increase of violence. And that serotonin research indicating an association with elevated serotonin and extreme violence was done right in your own back yard Sheriff at the University of Southern California. It would seem to me it is long overdue that law enforcement and judges wake up to this and step forward once again to protect us from this!

4 Dead Unstable Cincinnati Shooter’s Mental Health History Investigated

Omar Enrique Santa Perez, 29

 

Thursday morning, September 6th, Omar Enrique Santa Perez opened fire inside the lobby of a Cincinnati office building where he never worked nor to which had any known connection. The city’s police chief said the gunman’s mental health history is one of several areas they are investigating. Of course with a mental health history we know there were plenty if drugs that come with that. But we only hear “mental health history” rather that “mind altering drug history” even though those drugs are known to produce both murder and suicide.

“The shooter who killed three people in a Cincinnati office high-rise once acted disoriented after being fired four years ago in South Carolina, and he filed a recent lawsuit that a judge in June said “borders on delusional.”

 

 

If the gun had not jammed during the shooting and police response had not been so swift it is not known how many more might have lost their lives. Santa Perez was carrying enough ammunition to cause “a bloodbath beyond imagination.”

“The suspect appeared to be upset and disoriented. When I would ask the suspect questions but he would respond with strange answers…mumbled something about the war and the economy, but for the most part talked about that he was upset that he was terminated.” That job was lost back in 2014.

Apparently suffering paranoia he twice filed lawsuits claiming MSNBC was spying on him.

In January he filed suit against NBC Universal and TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation, seeking $5.1 million in damages for emotional distress and “character assassination,” WCPO reported.

A county clerk dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice in June andt he allegations “rambling, difficult to decipher and (bordering) on the delusional,”

He then filed another one claiming he was watching MSNBC when they began broadcasting information about him. He believed they intended to track him down and tap into his phone and electronics. Once again a magistrate judge found his allegations “rambling, difficult to decipher and (bordering) on the delusional.”

 

So how on earth does anyone miss that much paranoia & delusion over at least a four year period when the two together are known to be precursors to violence & then let it reach a point where four lives are lost?! It is because we have been led to believe that the delusions & paranoia can be drugged out of someone! JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS?!  Or say no to drugs unless you have any mental issues, at which point you then are expected to say yes to as many drugs as possible?!!

 

SEROTONIN LIES

The problem lies in the fact that every drug they are giving for these problems increase serotonin. And what do we know about serotonin? Although the hypothesis behind these drugs is that depression, anxiety, etc are all the result of low levels of serotonin when in fact for decades elevating serotonin has been associated with a long list of mental issues, including both psychosis & unjustified fears. So would it not be reasonable to question if this young man was taking drugs that may have been elevating his serotonin?

LSD & PCP mimic serotonin to produce hallucinations as well as leading to a whole host of serious mental issues. Listen to this long list of issues research lists as coming from elevated levels of serotonin as I read those off to the FDA Advisory Committee clear back in 2004….

 

 

EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE

 

What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study out of the Southern California:

 

1996 – Mutant Mice May Hold Key To Human Violence – An Excess Of Serotonin.

 

ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN TO

INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE

 

REM Sleep Disorder

 

What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others, including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off an antidepressant very, very, very slowly.

Feel free to join us on Facebook to learn more about this disorder on our Antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Disorder group:

Is Rebirth Possible After Serotonergic Medications?

Possibly the greatest concern of everyone who has been on one of these drugs that alter serotonin levels is can I recover? So I am going to be sharing more of these experiences the one Marcelo shared with me just a couple of weeks ago…so you can see the answer to that is YES! As long as you know what you are doing.

Remember what Dr. Candace Pert said in her statement about what people need to do to treat depression instead of using the antidepressants her research made possible which she called “monsters” which she wished she had never had anything to do with their development. I will quote that here for you as a reminder…

Dr. Candace Pert

“I am alarmed at the monster that Johns Hopkins neuro-scientist Solomon Snyder and I created when we discovered the simple binding assay for drug receptors 25 years ago. Prozac and other antidepressant serotonin-receptor-active compounds may also cause cardiovascular problems in some susceptible people after long-term use, which has become common practice despite the lack of safety studies.

“The public is being misinformed about the precision of these selective serotonin-uptake inhibitors when the medical profession oversimplifies their action in the brain and ignores the body as if it exists merely to carry the head around! In short, these molecules of emotion regulate every aspect of our physiology. A new paradigm has evolved, with implications that life-style changes such as diet and exercise can offer profound, safe and natural mood elevation.”

You will see from Marcelo’s experience below that learning all this does not take a lot of effort. He and I had a one hour discussion/consultation in 2012 and I have answered a few questions he has had in one of our Facebook groups over several years.

In August of 2012 Marcelo was diagnosed with a Fatty Liver after using Xanax for 3 years and then Zoloft for 8 years. His liver doctor advised that he go on a strict diet avoiding meat and fats, except for blue fish and eating lots of fruit and veggies. Then after meeting me and watching videos by Dr. Michael Greger, and my good friend, Dr. Lorraine Day, who is also on our Board of Directors for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness, his diet became a little more strict and he went to a Vegan diet. When one understands that both the benzos (like Xanax) and antidepressants (like Zoloft) are 98% protein binding it becomes quite clear that avoiding complex proteins will make it easier for the body to be able to flush these drugs out of the body and brain.

After about a one hour long discussion about his situation and drug side effects, which also included worsening of a serious situation with retinal damage, in 2012 this was my parting statement: “Well just keep working on building your body with lots of good nutrition & you will be just fine.”

 Meet Marcelo

My recent 2018 conversation with Marcelo contacting me to inform me of his progress and desire now to help others escape from and rebuild after all these deadly drugs:
Marcelo: Thank you!! You are so sweet! But I don” t think I deserve all the credit entirely for regaining my health because I could not have done it if I had not met you six years ago on Facebook which led me to find your book.
Doctors here in South America call these drugs, “Wonder drugs,” but like you always have said, they are wonder drugs straight from hell!
Thank you for all your help over all these years! I could not have done it without your help or without your book. The book is wonderful and had so much information on different topics.
You are very special! I don’t think there are many people like you in the world. The world needs more people like you!
I learned from you another approach to regain my health…different from orthodox medicine. And now I am better in every way thanks to you!
And people must learn to take responsibility to regain their health and stop trusting so much in doctors. I am much better now following a Vegan diet. I had a relapse when I quit the diet two years ago but I am much better now. I eat green leafy veggies like spinach,  broccoli..and I eat blueberries.
But I am VERY WELL now and I am amazed that right now everybody is getting the flu and I have not! My immune system is very good now. This diet is Very Powerful! I exercise now & do not get tired.
I watch videos by Dr. Michael Gregor and Dr.Lorraine Day too, who is on your Board of Directors. She cured herself from advanced cancer with a  Vegan diet, just like you did. She is amazing and you are too!
The liver doctor wanted me to get a vitamin K injection last year and I refused. I have learned my lesson about vitamins! I get them naturally from my food. And over this past year my liver function has improved by 75%, not by 100% yet, but much, much better and now in a normal range.
I understand now that my health is in MY HANDS, not any doctor’s hands. You taught me that! You have been so much help to me all these years.
I have oftén gone back to read again in your Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? book again whenever I have doubts about different things or have forgotten something about the drugs and their action.
I am so grateful for your help. I will do anything you need. Do you need someone to start a group here in South America or do you need someone to translate your book into Spanish? Count on me if you need help. I learned so,much from you and other Vegan doctors like dr. Greger and Dr. Day over all these years. She too believes the liver can heal. I saw it in her videos.
I never understood how much of a big difference diet can make in your life! A lot! It is key to your health. I may never have known that before but I do now! I have seen it work a miracle in my health.
It is amazing what you did to get rid of your cancer and Dr. Day too! My mother is very sick now and I tell her that diet will make a huge difference for her but she does not believe in diet. She has a blood disorder and probably breakthough cancer. I have tried to help her understand & sent her Dr. Day’s videos. But she just doesn’t believe she can heal with diet. It is sad indeed.
What you did in changing your diet to cure your cancer with diet and herbs was really amazing because you did it for yourself. You were brave! You listened to your own voice, your own body, and not the doctors. And then taught yourself how to do it even though you never knew these things before.
My biggest mistake of all was to trust in a psych doctor! I will never do that again! Any doctor that requires someone to take medicines for life…it is NOT good! The body is meant to heal itself like Dr. Day says. It doesn’t need medicines!
But diet is a very difficult  change for many people here because here in Argentina meat is the basis of the diet. And organic fruits & vegetables are Very hard to find because Monsanto is everywhere. It rains Roundup here! Many people get cáncer in the towns near the fields where they spray. It is an epidemic! I keep hoping they will leave here. Everything is contaminated. It is terrible, like the end of the world!
Humanity has not learned to use feeling, caring or wisdom in a proper way. It is a very difficult task to change all this. Right now we have an economic crisis so it is very difficult to resolve these issues. But it must be done.
The pharma business is very powerful too. Sad. They need to be stopped. I hope you can achieve that.
Thank you again! And once again I tell you the same, you are amazing. Thank you for all you have done and are doing for everyone! Big hugs!
Goodnight and Sweet dreams!

Meet Victoria

And here is Victoria who also cured herself with a similar diet after going cold turkey off  Effexor – something she recommends no one ever do as it is so much worse and more dangerous than weaning off these serotonergic drugs!!!

Suicidal SeaTac Employee Steals Plane & Crashes It

We have documented these suicide cases in airplanes for so long now! You can go to our database of cases at www.SSRIstories.Net to search for all the cases of suicide by plane. The connection to antidepressant drugs when a suicide involves a plane I can pretty much count on.
One example would be the case of the Germanwings co-pilot who flew a 150 people into the side of the Alps after taking over the plane. They said they found a mountain of antidepressants in his apartment. And then there was the EgyptAir pilot who took 200 people with him as that crashed into the sea. Although I don’t have documentation on that case I have always known there had to be an antidepressant involved in that Pilot’s case. The reason I say that is because he had voiced that he was depressed and just before this flight he paid a visit to a relative in Los Angeles who was a psychiatrist. Now can someone tell me if they are depressed and they go to see a relative who is a psychiatrist, do you really think they’re not going to walk out with mounds upon mounds of free samples of antidepressants?!
Below is a report  along with an audio conversation  between this man and the air traffic controller but you can listen to  by clicking the link  below … I thought he made an antidepressant connection quite clear when he said he was just a broken guy but then added that apparently he had a few screws loose that he didn’t realize he had until he did this! That is an adverse drug reaction that appears from out of nowhere and causes impulsive behavior which comes from elevated serotonin! Hopefully we will learn more over the weekend.

August 10, 2018 – A Plane Was Stolen…

…by an airline employee at Seattle-Tacoma international airport on Friday, August 10th, 2018. Fighter aircraft from Portland, Oregon were scrambled and pursued the prop aircraft. The aircraft crashed into an island off the Washington coast for currently unknown reasons.
You can listen to him on the following link explaining as I said before that he thinks he must have a few screws loose but he never realized it until he stole this plane & took off in it!

What is the side effect of suicidal ideation?

I don’t think most people understand what suicidal ideation means or homicidal ideation either, yet both are listed side effects to antidepressants. It is having obsessive & compulsive thoughts of methods of killing along with obsessive & compulsive thoughts of killing which can lead to suicidal or homicidal actions!
One fellow, who contacted me after hearing me on a national radio show several years ago said, “After taking Zoloft for only 3 days, I wanted to die more than I wanted a new Ferrari! But I didn’t want death for just me, I wanted it for everybody I knew! I wanted us to all get together and die together!”
The suicidal man’s conversation with the air traffic controller can be heard here…
https://youtu.be/-GzroZxwhJg
This is one of the many reasons I refuse to fly. Not only do you have very high amounts of air traffic controllers & flight attendants on  antidepressants, but you have Pilots, passengers, and you have additional reactions to the medications at that altitude because there’s less oxygen. And this is where Airline rage came from.
