Columbine 20th Anniversary – How to Bury the Truth

It was 20 years ago this weekend that Eric Harris & Dylan Klebold walked up to Columbine with guns drawn, Eric under the influence of the antidepressant Luvox & Dylan under the influence of Zoloft & Paxil, according to a report from his good friend attempting to help him withdraw from the medications. When they were done suffering the antidepressant side effects of both suicidal & homicidal ideation, 12 students laid dead, along with one school teacher, plus Eric & Dylan themselves. The victims were Cassie Bernall, 17,  Steven Curnow, 14, Corey DePooter, 17, Kelly Fleming, 16, Matthew Kechter, Daniel Mauser, 15, Daniel Rohrbough, 15, Rachel Scott, 17, Isaiah Shoels, 18,  John Tomlin, 16, Lauren Townsend, 18, Kyle Velasquez, 16, and school teacher William “Dave” Sanders. To that list I would also add as victims Eric Harris & Dylan Klebold because they too were victims of these deadly drugs which caused them to not only take all of these lives due to the side effect of homicidal ideation, but suicidal ideation as well, thereby losing their own lives as well by their own hands. We do know that the most dangerous time and taking these drugs is an abrupt change in dose…so any increase or decrease as in starting the drugs, stopping the drugs, or switching the drugs. Eric complained of homicidal ideation in six weeks of starting on Zoloft, so he was switched to Luvox (Spell the name of an SSRI differently & you get a different reaction, right? WRONG!) & within two months of the Columbine shooting Eric’s dose of Luvox was DOUBLED!
Threat Against Columbine Repeated This Week
On Monday of this week Sol Pais,  an 18 year old girl, from Miami, FL, who was obsessed with Columbine & the shooters, flew to Denver, CO, bought a shotgun & ammo, setting off a frenzy with concern of another school shooting & resulting in as many as 1000 Colorado schools being shut down!
Woman ‘infatuated’ with Columbine, center of manhunt, found dead by suicide in Colorado, sources say
It was Facebook posts like this drawing she had on her computer that concerned investigators when they already knew she was fascinated with the Columbine shooting.
She was found at the base of a tree & her “body was still clothed in the same camouflage pants and black T-shirt, and she had a small duffel bag that contained two boxes of shotgun shells” all within arm’s reach & certainly not suitable for the cold weather.
April 20, 1999 – 20 Years Ago

The morning if April 20, 1999, I contacted Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, to discuss with him the case of the Salt Lake LDS Family History Library shooting which happened 5 days earlier & had taken the life of my good friend Don Thomas. Don had been the security guard at the library for 28 years. Don & I had many long talks in the lobby of that very library about the dangers he was facing as a result of so many in Utah using antidepressants. I urged him over and over to be extremely careful in his position. I explained that as those on these drugs lose the memory of who they are they often turn to family history in an attempt to recall any memories to bind them to their loved ones. Sadly Don learned that lesson first hand that morning as he lost his life along with a woman who was a guest at the library before Salt Lake City police arrived shooting and killing the shooter 70 year old Sergei Babarin.
Local media quickly reported that Sergey Babarin was schizophrenic, something he has never been diagnosed with and was not being treated for. This was especially a far reach when General Lee those suffering schizophrenia are diagnosed in their late teens or early twenties, not in their 60s or 70s! I owed it to my friend to learn the truth and do what I could to get that truth about his death out to the public and his family. My suspicions that this was an antidepressant-induced psychosis we’re quickly confirmed as the shooter’s son spoke to the media setting them straight on his antidepressant use. I soon met Sergei’s son let me know that his father had noticed his antidepressant what’s causing him the lose his eyesight just as we would later hear about the Germanwings pilot who flew 150 people to their deaths when he slammed a passenger plane into a Mountainside in the Alps.
Because of his rapidly deteriorating eyesight, Sergei had abruptly discontinued the use of his antidepressant unaware of the extreme dangers of making abrupt changes to the dose of the drug.  There were not and still are not any warnings about the drug withdrawal state known as REM Sleep Disorder – a condition we now know that 86% of those being diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder, in which you act out nightmares in a sleep state, were found to be taking antidepressants. Yet before we learned that this was generally known as a drug withdrawal state. But now in knowing that u65 of those diagnosed with this deadly sleep disorder are currently taking an antidepressant, how high could it be for those in abrupt withdrawal from one of these drugs since in the past this was known mainly as a drug withdrawal state?! This is why behavior on these drugs is so very much the opposite of what the individual would normally do. Why it is the best moms who kill their children, the best firefighters who commit arson, etc. This is information that should be headline news about these drugs & the very first warning given to a patient being prescribed an antidepressant!!!
As I explained all of this to Chief Ortega he brought up another recent case from January of 1999 at the Triad Center in Salt Lake City where a woman ran in with the gun and shot two people. One of those shot was a pregnant woman who lost her baby. Article: Triad Shooting
Chief Ortega pointed out that the woman shooter was also on these drugs. He then asked if I thought what was happening in Colorado at Columbine High School as we were speaking could possibly be a result of these drugs as well. I replied that I do not generally see two people go off the deep end at the same time on these drugs. But I told him that if these boys ended up killing themselves after the shooting I would be almost certain that they were taking antidepressants. Ironically when I checked timelines I found that I was making that statement right about the same time Eric and Dylan were committing suicide! The chief has been asked if I would join him in doing a press conference on this subject. I agreed. But sadly very shortly after that Chief Ortega retired after learning his wife was dying of cancer. They quickly moved back to their home in Phoenix Arizona where he had previously served as police chief for Phoenix. So the opportunity of doing a press conference it was no longer possible.
                         Columbine & Antidepressants
Only days after Columbine we learned from a neighbor of Eric Harris that he had recently been turned down for the military because he was taking the antidepressant Luvox. Interestingly I learned that information on Eric’s antidepressant use as I was about to do a radio interview with a local station in Salt Lake City along with a Japanese Associated Press reporter who was sent to Utah to spend a week with me to learn more about these drugs because the antidepressant Luvox was about to be released in Japan as the first SSRI antidepressant in that country! Needless to say, the look upon the reporters face as that news came across the wire was one of total shock and disbelief! Actually, because he had already read my book on antidepressants, Prozac Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!, his disbelief was not centered in the science behind how these drugs could have played an in the violence produced at Columbine. Rather his disbelief was in how ironic it was that it was the same drug that his own country was about to face as their first experience with these drugs. In fact, it was only a month or two later after him returning home that he called to let me know that they had just had a case of a man on Luvox kill a pilot with a knife and take over a passenger plane!
 
                   
LIST OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS & ANTIDEPRESSANT USE
SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: EVIDENCE ANTIDEPRESSANTS ARE THE CAUSE
COLUMBINE SURVIVOR MARK TAYLOR’S “FIGHT FOR COLUMBINE”
LIES FROM USA TODAY ON COLUMBINE’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY
The newspaper USA Today ran an article on the 10th anniversary of Columbine entitled “The Myths of Columbine”. I believe it was myth #2 that the shooters were taking antidepressants! I immediately contacted the reporter to ask him how he had missed one of the biggest lawsuits filed in the last decade. Of course, he immediately knew I was talking about Columbine survivor Mark Taylor’s case against Solvay causing their drug Luvox to shoot Mark 6 -13 times that day.and he replied, “Oh you mean the Luvox? I guess I better change that.” I learned later that Dr. Peter Bretton had also contacted the reporter with the same information. But instead, the reporter made no changes within the week he had to do so allowing that false information to be spread nationwide that weekend. To this day I still have people telling me that Eric and Dylan were not on any antidepressants!
And now for the 20th Anniversary at Columbine current students there have joined together with David Hogg in his movement for gun control, “March for Our Lives”, to promote stickers to be placed on student IDs requesting that in the case they die of gun violence that pictures of their bodies be published for the world to see. Mark Taylor was known as the “Columbine Wonder Boy” after he survived 6 – 13 gunshots at Columbine He was so bad that the doctor at the hospital called Mark’s family doctor to say, “I have one of your patients here. He is dead but he’s talking to me!” That will give you some idea of how badly he was damaged. But when I shared this new idea on the sticker for IDs with Mark he was puzzled by the idea & wondered out loud what good they thought that would do in stopping these shootings.
The fake news you have heard about since President Trump came into office has actually been around for many years now! This is how Pharma bury’s the truth about their drugs! One lie on top of another until no one knows what the truth really is! Learning from history is extremely important! When that history is falsified people are harmed and die as a result. A perfect example of that is what has happened in Parkland, Florida this past year. After the school shooting there all people heard about were the guns & not the shooter’s nearly life – long history of using these drugs that increase serotonin & thereby produce extreme violence.
In fact, the survivors have been lied to, unlike anything I have heard to date! If you have the stomach to listen to those lies by clicking the following link to listen to a PhD from Columbia publicly state, contrary to FDA warnings, even Black Box Warnings, that antidepressants absolutely do not cause suicide and that that suffering grief over the loss of their friends should most definitely be given these drugs for treatment!
Obviously, this woman has not read the court testimony of her colleague at Columbia, Dr. John Mann, who has studied the effects of inhibiting serotonin (considered the therapeutic effect of SSRIs) for decades. In 2001 Dr. Mann was compelled to testify under oath that the expected result of these antidepressants inhibiting serotonin metabolism would be “impulsive murder or suicide”! So not only is she going against FDA warnings, FDA Black Box Warnings, but also against the court testimony of her own colleague who is considered one of the leading experts on serotonin!
As a result of this within the past few weeks, we have seen two of those young survivors commit suicide! I have little doubt the first one was taking antidepressants because she had already been given a label of PTSD from “Survivor’s Guilt. Couple that with the very violent method of suicide by shooting herself – violence is rarely seen in women before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants & it becomes quite clear she was being given one of these drugs.
I am still waiting for more information on the second suicide. But yet another shocking case happened in Connecticut where a father who lost his daughter at Sandy Hook, a neuropsychopharmacologist flew to Florida to lecture to the kids from Parkland just before these two suicides. He too killed himself only days after the second survivor’s suicide! And I don’t think it would take a rocket scientist to figure out that a neuropsychopharmacologist would also be on one of these drugs that he was promoting to these children.

Two School Shootings in the News on Columbine’s 18th Anniversary

Today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, marks the 18th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and marks the day after Barry Loukitis, in one of the first school shootings in this country, was once again given 189 years for killing a teacher and two classmates in Moses Lake, WA while no mention of these drugs and the role they played in that case has ever been mentioned in his defense! And while the real guilty parties in these school shootings continue to live in plush luxury with no repercussions whatsoever to this day!

The 12 students listed below and one teacher, William “Dave” Sanders, 47, were killed during the attack on the morning of April 20, 1999. And Eric Harris and Dylan Kleebold lost their lives in either a double suicide or a murder/suicide after the attack. Today we remember all the lives that were lost that day as well as those were severely injured and those whose lives were changed forever when Eric and Dylan reacted to their antidepressants:

Cassie Bernall, 17
Steven Curnow, 14
Corey DePooter, 17
Kelly Fleming, 16
Matthew Kechter, 16
Daniel Mauser, 15
Daniel Rohrbough, 15
Rachel Scott, 17
Isaiah Shoels, 18
John Tomlin, 16
Lauren Townsend, 18
Kyle Velasquez, 16

The day this happened I was on the phone with Ruben Ortega, Chief of Police in Salt Lake City, discussing with him some local tragedies to help him to understand the impact of these drugs upon the community he served and the public as a whole. The Salt Lake Family History Library shooting had recently happened with an elderly Russian man killing two before being shot. That elderly Russian man had an experience very similar to the German Wings pilot who two years ago took a plane with 150 to their deaths as he flew it into a mountain side in the Alps. This elderly Russian man noticed that he was losing his eyesight as a result of his antidepressant so he just stopped taking it with NO IDEA what that can cause! (If you see the REM Sleep Disorder listed in the Evidence section on School Shootings you will see the reaction he had that morning on his daily walk past the Family History Library as he opened fire killing one of my dear friends, Don Thomas, whom I had warned over and over again about the danger he was in there as the Family History Library security guard.) As Chief Ortega learned more and more about how these drugs work and how they can produce psychosis and violence and are so very similar in action to a slow fuse LSD or PCP he mentioned that was the case in the recent KSL shooting as well. The woman who came into that building shooting and killing a woman who worked there and her unborn child was also on one of these drugs. He then asked me, “Do you think what is going on right now in that school shooting in Littleton, CO could be caused by these drugs as well?” I replied that I did not generally see a case where two people go off the deep end on these drugs at the same time, but if they commit suicide too, you can bet it is one of these cases.” I was to later learn that about the same time I was making that statement to Chief Ortega is when Eric and Dylan lost their lives to the suicidal ideation we now have warnings are doubled for those under the age of 25 who take these drugs.

Mark Taylor’s Fight for Columbine

Please watch Mark Taylor’s Fight For Columbine to see how this tragedy has never gone away for Mark and has only gotten worse for him after he filed suit against the antidepressant maker of Luvox . Luvox is the antidepressant Eric Harris was taking when he shot Mark. And before anyone starts in on we don’t have any evidence of Dylan being on anything you need to know  that a girlfriend of Dylan’s came to Mark Taylor’s mother and then spoke with me about trying to help Dylan come off his Zoloft and Paxil (the same drug found guilty in the suicide of one of the nations’ leading attorneys.

Losing Control on Luvox

“…there seems to be a screaming, and I have begun pulling my hair out, one strand at a time.”

 

I have been taking LUVOX for about 4 weeks and though I was informed it would take several weeks for the drug to work, I began noticing changes in me within the last two weeks. I seem to be constantly agitated, with periods of crying at the drop of a hat. I feel I am loosing control of my sanity. I am anxious, believing I need some sort of VALIUM type drug rather than an anti-depressant. Inside me there seems to be a screaming, and I have begun pulling my hair out, one strand at a time, to the point it is EXTREMELY noticeable. Two weeks ago, I began having breathing difficulties, then again I do have asthma. Doctor put me on an antibiotic and sent me home. I went back to the Doctor, I tried explaining my symptoms, but all that was done was a change of antibiotic, with the addition of cough medicine with codeine. I am having trouble sleeping, breathing, and my metal state is a mess! I am over-reacting to the smallest things, and am striking out without forethought of the consequences, such as breaking off a 2-year relationship (which hours later had no idea why I did such a disastrous, nonsensical, thing). I really do feel I am loosing it, and I believe it to be the LUVOX!

MARK TAYLOR’S FIGHT FOR COLUMBINE

mark

FEAT-IMGsm-Mark_Taylor-01

 MARK ALLEN TAYLOR

On April 20, 1999 Eric Harris opened fire outside Columbine High School. Standing with his friends having a discussion on the Bible was Mark Allen Taylor. The first bullets hit Mark with anywhere from 7 – 13 entering his body. The damage was so great that doctors could not determine the number of bullets that entered. The following video documents Mark’s life from that moment on. Click to view: http://youtu.be/XH7m-YNApU4

https://www.facebook.com/ReleaseMarkTaylor

Our webmaster for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness at www.drugawareness.org, Todd Bentley, who is Mark’s best friend and my incredible son-in-law and best father to my grandchildren anyone could ask for, put this video together and entered it in an Infowars contest (thus the reference to Infowars. I encourage you to share this everywhere!

I am extremely concerned about Mark’s health due to the damaging effects of the drugs he has been forced to take. He has worked long and hard in fighting this battle to bring awareness about the dangers of antidepressants and the truth about the cause of school shootings. And I do believe what he has been through is payback for the effectiveness of the battle he fought.

Now Mark needs our help to set him free from the system that is destroying him! What damage he suffered at Columbine is NOTHING in comparrison to the damage he has suffered from the past several years of forced drugging with the same drugs he was working so hard to warn society about!

Go to www.drugawareness.org to donate and help us raise the necessary funds to get the legal help he needs to set him free and safely withdraw from the medications that are killing him!

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!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

WITHDRAWAL HELP CD TESTIMONIALS:

“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber

“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambien. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill

Luvox (SSRI)

Luvox (SSRI)
amy Bond
Was prescribed Luvox to treat my OCD prior to during and after birth of my 2nd child Having OCD i I was obsessed that this drug may harm the baby. I was reassured that it is a safe drug Our son was born with double outlet right ventricle, craniosynostosis and otosclerosis. Genetic testing was performed,but came back with no missing chromosomes or abnormalities,FISH etc we found out recently that this class C drug may have caused these defects in our child. A class C drug is a drug that no testing was performed on a pregnant woman but has been known to cause defects and morbidity in animals Why would a doctor prescribe a drug to a pregnant woman why would the FDA approve such a drug why would a company Solvay pharm make such a harmful product.. Our son has had 4 open heart surgeries, he’s deaf in 1 ear and he has a mis shaped skull and ear. My OCD was not severe enough to out weigh these possible defects. Any pregnant women DO NOT TAKE ANY SSRI good luck finding an attorney to rep you it’s been 3 years and no one will takr this case to court!!!!!!

ZOLOFT: 12 Year Old Boy Kills 5 Week Old Infant: Georgia

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy:

I could not even begin to count the number of times that a
child on Zoloft has told me of both thoughts and plans to kill that they
developed on Zoloft. Eric Harris, the lead shooter at Columbine, had those
thoughts within three weeks on Zoloft and found them to be so disturbing to him
that he reported it and they took him off Zoloft and put him on another
antidepressant. [What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing and
expecting a different result – the other antidepressant, Luvox, ended up
producing thoughts of killing intense enough to result in the largest school
shooting the world had ever witnessed at that point.] I even had a case of a 5

year old boy in Southern Utah who had such intense feelings of homicide that he
told his family he was going to have the police come and kill them
all.

Check out our database of cases at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org to find more cases
like this of children killing while under the influence of
antidepressants.
Paragraph 29 reads:  “While the boy continued to refuse,
Curtis spoke to police when he was out of the room. She told them the boy was in
counseling, that he had been fighting at school, that he had been prescribed

Zoloft and a mood stabilizing medicine. Then, Curtis provided a tearful account
of what he said happened.”

Infant‘s mother testifies as Tampa boy stands trial in Georgia

death

By Alexandra
Zayas
, Times Staff Writer
In Print: Thursday,
December 10, 2009

MARIETTA, Ga. ­ On the Fourth of July, Brittiany
Young returned to her car in a Target parking lot and put it in reverse. That’s
when she noticed the swollen mouth of her 5weekold daughter,
Millan.

Young put the car in park and turned to her cousin, a 12yearold

Tampa boy she had left alone with the baby.

“What did you do?” she asked.
“What did you do to her?”

The mother testified Wednesday morning in a
Cobb County, Ga., courtroom, where the Tampa boy faces charges of felony murder
and cruelty to children. He has pleaded not guilty. Juvenile Court Judge A.
Gregory Poole will decide the case without a jury.

The unidentified boy
­ a court order keeps his name secret ­ was visiting relatives July 4
outside Atlanta when his cousin stopped at the Target to pick up food for a
picnic. According to court testimony, the 22-yearold mother left the keys in
the ignition and the air conditioning on as she shopped at the store for 18
minutes. When Young returned, the boy was playing on his cell phone in the back
seat. The radio was turned louder. And the infant was not responsive.

The
baby girl was taken off life support the next day. A medical examiner found
multiple skull fractures and ruled the cause of death blunt force trauma to the
head.

The boy has remained in Georgia since July, first locked up in a
juvenile detention center, then transferred to a secure group
home.

Authorities said nothing specific about how they think the baby
died until Wednesday morning.

“Something so horrific happened that
pictures don’t do it justice,” prosecutor Eleanor Odom said in her opening
statement. “That child’s head was bashed in.”

The boy‘s attorney, Derek
Wright, had another word to describe the prosecution’s case:
“Impossible.”

He said prosecutors would not be able to provide a scenario
showing exactly what act of violence befell the baby ­ no weapon, no points
of impact in the car.

By Wednesday night, they still had not.

• •

In the courtroom, the sixth-grader wore a gold suit ­ like the one
he wore to his elementary school graduation.

When his mother, his father
and his great-aunt cried ­ when the baby’s mother cried ­ he remained
composed.

But emergency responders who first arrived at the scene
testified that they saw him pacing and sobbing. They noted a different, more
calm reaction from the mother. Paramedic Pierce Summers saw her later at the
hospital.

“For someone that had had a child in that circumstance, it was
surprising,” he said, “like she was kind of lost in a fog.”

Young
described what her baby looked like in the car: eyes swollen and hard to the
touch; blood on her mouth or nose; limp.

On July 5, the baby girl was
deemed brain dead and taken off life support. The prosecutor asked the mother,
“Were you there when Millan died?”

She paused to wipe tears. Then, she
said, “yes.”

After the judge ordered a break and the infant‘s mother left
the stand, the boy burst into tears. He stood up, turned around and looked at
his mother, who stood up from a bench and kissed his forehead.

• •

For much of the day and into the night, the prosecution focused on
three videotaped interviews the boy gave detectives.

The third was the
subject of an hourslong debate. The defense fought hard to have it suppressed,
saying the boy was forced to give incriminating statements.

During the
first, the boy told detectives what he told the baby’s mother: The baby began to
cry, so he tried to give her a pacifier. She spit it out, so he tried to give
her a bottle of water. She kept screaming, and was scratching her face. He
turned the radio loud, and it appeared she went to sleep.

The boy‘s story
didn’t stray far from his original account in his second interview, which he
gave the day after the baby was pronounced dead.

“If you accidentally
hurt Millan, would you tell us?” the detective asked.

“Yes,” the boy

said. “I didn’t accidentally hurt her. . . . I don’t want to hurt a
baby.”

But a couple of hours after he gave that interview ­ while
their entire family was gathered at the baby’s mother’s house ­ the boy‘s
mother, Camille Curtis, brought him back to speak with police. This time, she
was crying. She said he had told her something.

“It was just an
accident,” Curtis said. “He said he was scared. I asked him. He told me. He
thought I was going to be mad.”

Detectives asked the boy if he wanted to
talk. The boy shook his head.

While the boy continued to refuse, Curtis
spoke to police when he was out of the room. She told them the boy was in
counseling, that he had been fighting at school, that he had been prescribed

Zoloft and a mood stabilizing medicine. Then, Curtis provided a tearful account
of what he said happened.

She said he told her the baby started choking
when he tried to give her the bottle. He lifted her to his chest to burp her,
and she fell out of his hands.

The boy told the baby’s mother he was
sorry, Curtis said.

At that point in the videotape, the police told her
that this story didn’t match the injuries. The video shows her pleading with her
son to tell the police the truth, that he wouldn’t be allowed to go home until
he did.

He tells her he wiped the baby’s blood with a blanket, and that
he accidentally hit her with his elbow while trying to pick her up off the
floor.

Just before midnight on the videotape, when it appeared the boy
was about to talk, the judge stopped the tape.

“I find this to be
inherently unfair,” the judge said. “This child is so scared . . . literally in
a corner. His mother is pressuring him. How many times does the kid say he
doesn’t want to talk?”

With that, the judge struck the entire third
interview from the record. None of it will factor into the decision he will make
this week.

Judge’s
Verdict: Guilty, but not of murder

Dressed in a shirt and tie, the skinny, dimpled boy stayed calm as the
judge delivered his verdict: “I find beyond a reasonable doubt that Millan
suffered major trauma during the 18 minutes the juvenile was alone with the
baby. … I find that the juvenile caused the injuries and that the baby later
died as a result of the trauma.

“Now, what do I think happened? This child was left alone with the baby.
I don’t know that should have happened, but it did …

“Millan, a child he really didn’t know, started crying, and it got louder

“He didn’t know what to do. I think he was scared. He tried using the
pacifier to make this baby stop crying. It didn’t work. What did he do
next?

“He got out the bottle of water … He gives it to the baby. The baby won’t
be quiet. Turns up the radio so he won’t have to hear this baby crying. That
didn’t work. He might have even turned it up again. Well, the pink pacifier
didn’t work. Let’s use the purple pacifier …

“This juvenile was trying to get the baby to quit crying. … He was
scared, and he didn’t know what to do. … I wouldn’t expect him to know what to
do.

“I find that in order to get the baby to be quiet, using his own means as
a 12yearold, that he committed batteries, plural, against this baby

“Did this child mean that his actions would kill Millan? No …

“Technically, I think I can find possibly if I wanted to go further, some
type of an involuntary manslaughter. In my mind, I’ve still got to place this
child with some expectation, some appreciation for the horrific damage that it
has done, and I find nothing along those lines.

“Did he do wrong? Oh yeah, he did. I wish it hadn’t happened, but it
did.”

Tampa
boy, 12, found not guilty of murder in infant‘s death

Saturday, December 12, 2009

MARIETTA,
Ga. — The 12yearold Tampa boy sat in the Cobb County Juvenile Courthouse
Friday morning, still an accused baby murderer. A few hours later, he chomped on
potato chips and Skittles and asked to go to the all-you-can-eat buffet at
Golden Corral. He told his family he had plans for his future.

“I want to
be a judge,” he said. “I want to go to Harvard.”

This
announcement came after one made by Judge A. Gregory Poole: The boy was not
guilty of murder and child cruelty in the July death of his 5weekold cousin,
Millan
Young. He was guilty of a lesser offense, two counts of battery, which could
carry a two-year sentence, served either in a detention center, a group home, or
as probation while living with family. The sentence will come with
counseling.

The judge
will decide it on Jan. 6.

Had the boy
been convicted of murder, he would have faced nine years in detention.

As they
prepared to leave the courthouse, the boy‘s grandmother wrapped him in a tight
hug and told him, “See how God delivered you?”

He
responded, “Yes, ma’am.”

• • •

For three
days, lawyers tried to convince a judge of what they thought happened inside a
parked car on July 4.

The boy, his
name kept secret by court order, was visiting relatives near Atlanta when he got
into a car with his mother’s 22-yearold first cousin Brittiany Young and her
infant daughter. Young stopped at Target to get food and left the car
running.

When she
returned, she testified, the boy was playing on his cell phone. The radio was
turned up. And the baby’s mouth was swollen. Her lips were blue. Her eyes were
hard to the touch. She was limp and not breathing. The baby died the following
day.

Three
doctors testified about the child’s injuries: two types of brain hemorrhages,
retinal hemorrhages, unrelated fractures on opposite sides of her head, and
bruising of the mouth and other parts of her body. Tissue on her upper lip was
bruised, something that happens when babies are force-fed.

They said
the injuries weren’t accidental but couldn’t determine who caused them. The
medical examiner called it a homicide, finding that the child must have been
held firmly, shaken and slammed at least twice against a hard, flat surface.

Crime lab
tests found no physical evidence in the car. Prosecutors had testimony that the
baby was acting normally before the mother left the car and was unresponsive
when she returned.

In closing
statements Friday, defense attorney Derek Wright tried to convince the judge
that prosecutors didn’t prove the boy was the murderer. He said he could make a
case against the baby’s mother, noting that several emergency responders said
Young was acting unusually calm when they arrived, but that the boy was sobbing
and pacing. He suggested the possibility that the baby was injured at the
mother’s home minutes away but didn’t show signs of trauma until the parking
lot.

The baby’s
mother sat in the courtroom on a bench closest to the door. She stared ahead
with tears in her eyes as Wright said she could have let her cousin take the
blame.

Prosecutor
Eleanor Odom argued that the baby’s mother didn’t appear distraught because she
didn’t yet know the extent of the baby’s injuries, but that the boy already
did.

Odom took a
blood-stained, pink onesie out of an evidence bag and showed it to the
judge.

“You can see
the size, how big Millan really was,” Odom said. “I think this speaks more words
than those pictures ever could.”

Dressed in a
shirt and tie, the skinny, dimpled boy stayed calm as the judge delivered his
verdict: “I find beyond a reasonable doubt that Millan suffered major trauma
during the 18 minutes the juvenile was alone with the baby. … I find that the
juvenile caused the injuries and that the baby later died as a result of the
trauma.

“Now, what
do I think happened? This child was left alone with the baby. I don’t know that
should have happened, but it did …

“Millan, a
child he really didn’t know, started crying, and it got louder …

“He didn’t
know what to do. I think he was scared. He tried using the pacifier to make this
baby stop crying. It didn’t work. What did he do next?

“He got out
the bottle of water … He gives it to the baby. The baby won’t be quiet. Turns up
the radio so he won’t have to hear this baby crying. That didn’t work. He might
have even turned it up again. Well, the pink pacifier didn’t work. Let’s use the
purple pacifier …

“This
juvenile was trying to get the baby to quit crying. … He was scared, and he
didn’t know what to do. … I wouldn’t expect him to know what to do.

“I find that
in order to get the baby to be quiet, using his own means as a 12yearold, that
he committed batteries, plural, against this baby …

“Did this
child mean that his actions would kill Millan? No …

“Technically, I
think I can find possibly if I wanted to go further, some type of an involuntary
manslaughter. In my mind, I’ve still got to place this child with some
expectation, some appreciation for the horrific damage that it has done, and I
find nothing along those lines.

“Did he do
wrong? Oh yeah, he did. I wish it hadn’t happened, but it did.”

Once the
judge stopped talking, the boy started to cry. His parents embraced him, also in
tears. His mother smiled.

The baby’s
mother left the courtroom after the verdict and declined to comment. The boy‘s
grandmother said the family planned to gather at Brittiany Young’s home later
that day.

The judge
needed to decide where the boy would stay until the sentencing. He was
originally locked up in a juvenile detention center, but later transferred to a
secured group home.

A
representative from the group home told the judge the boy had a tough transition
into his school and, due to the stresses of his case, sometimes shut down
emotionally. But he said the boy was a role model and standout student.

The judge
allowed him to return to the group home and said he was welcome to visit with
family. He told the boy his behavior in the next month will be important in
deciding a sentence. The boy promised to be good.

Then, the
boy‘s attorney told the family, “Y’all go breathe.”

• • •

The boy‘s
grandmother, Joyce Hightower, couldn’t sleep Thursday night. She’d driven from
Tampa earlier that day and spent the night reading news about the case and
praying.

Now, holding
her grandson’s hand, she asked him how he felt.

“Good,” he
told her. “Anxious.”

“Anxious for
what?” she asked.

He said, “To
go home.”

Mark Taylor’s testimony before the FDA 9/13/2004

I am Mark Allen Taylor and I am a victim of the SSRI antidepressant era. I took six to thirteen bullets in the heart area in the Columbine High School shooting when Eric Harris on Luvox opened fire that now infamous day.

They almost had to amputate my leg and my arm. My heart missed by only one millimeter. I had three surgeries. Five years later I am still recuperating.

I went through all this to realize that SSRI antidepressants are dangerous for those who take them and for all those who associate with those who take them.

I hope that my testimony today shows you that you need to take action immediately before more innocent people like me, and you, do not get hurt or die horrible deaths as a result.

As Americans we should have the right to feel safe and if you were doing your job we would be safe. Why are we worrying about terrorists in other countries when the pharmaceutical companies have proven to be our biggest terrorists by releasing these drugs on an unsuspecting public?

How are we suppose to feel safe at school, at home, on the street, at church or anywhere else if we cannot trust the FDA to do what we are paying you to do? Where were you when I and all of my classmates got shot at Columbine?

You say that antidepressants are effective. So why did they not help Eric Harris before he shot me?

According to Eric they “helped” him to feel homicidal and suicidal after only six weeks on Zoloft. And then he said that dropping off Luvox cold turkey would help him “fuel the rage” he needed to shoot everyone. But he continued on Luvox and shot us all anyway.

So, why did these so called antidepressants not make him better? I will tell you why. It is because they do not work.

We should consider antidepressants to be accomplices to murder.

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!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

Zoloft SSRI Antidepressant Destroyed my Life

It’s now August of 2009, just past a year after being discharged from the psychiatric hospital.  I’ve been off Zoloft since March 2009 and am finally feeling like a human being again.  Fortunately, I don’t seem to have any neurological damage, memory impairment, concentration troubles or other lasting symptoms.

I’m 48 years old and my introduction to Zoloft began when I was 34. I’ve since learned that the symptoms of fatigue and difficulty sleeping and concentrating that I was having at that time were due to over-work and adrenal exhaustion. That doctor had me fill out a questionnaire and then spent maybe 10 minutes with me before giving me free samples of Zoloft.   Had I known then, what I know now?… And I must forgive the past and not dwell on it in order to heal.

In June of 2008, my nutritionist who was treating me with amino acid therapy took me off Zoloft abruptly.  This caused me to go into a manic state, which I had never experienced before.  It also brought up a lot of anger.  After about a ten days, my wife and I figured out it was the discontinuation of Zoloft that was causing all these problems, so I went back on it.

Because of all my weird behavior, I had left the house and was staying at a hotel.  My wife got my sister involved and she stayed with me for a couple of days but didn’t bring along her bi-polar medications.  I remember distinctly the night of July 13th:  I slept from about 9pm to 5am, went for a work out and did my meditation.  I was definitely stabilizing.

Then my sister took me into town, my wife and I had another fight and, in my anger and frustration, I broke the rear view mirror off my sister’s car.  This caused her to freak out.  We had picked up her meds and agreed to go back to the hotel and take a nap.  I later learned that she had already called the police.

When we arrived at the hotel, the cops came to my door (hands on their holstered guns) and ordered me out of the car.  They hand cuffed me, searched me and put me in the squad car.  Then, as I later learned, my sister and wife had a discussion about “wether or not to tell the police that I had threatened her.”  My sister told the police a lie, that I had threatened her with a gun and I was hauled off to the ER where I was doped up with an injection.

Later I was taken to the psychiatric hospital where I was asked to sign a bunch of forms and “releases.”  How absurd!  I was only semi-consicouss at the time.

At the hospital I was taken off the Zoloft and diagnosed as bi-polar.  Of course, this through me into another withdrawal episode and made me manic and aggressive again.

I want to point out that I have no history of violence, have never been in any sort of brawl, have never been arrested, have never before been put in handcuffs, no DUI tickets and even a clean driving record.

The hospital changed my drugs every few days.  Zyprexa, Lithium, Depakote, Abilify, etc.  After 20 days, I was discharged. The insurance and family money was expended, so I was well, right?

Far from it:  My wife filed for divorce.  I lost access to my home, which was also my office.  She cleaned out the company bank account, etc.

Eventually, I lost pretty much everything and got saddled with all our debt and received none of the assets due to a waiver of “appearance” I signed 3 days out of the hospital.  We had agreed on a negotiated, one lawyer divorce, but I ended up getting totally screwed.

Over the past 12 months, I’ve lived in 5 states.  I’ve had a couple of “room and board” jobs and stayed with friends.  Fortunately, my mother has been able to give me some financial support, so I haven’t been without the basic necessities of life.  Through a friend, I found Ann Blake-Tracy and she helped me understand what happened to me and gave me phone support while I finished the detox from the Zoloft these past few months.

Now, I’m well enough that I’m looking for  a job again so I can restart my life.

I’m certainly not bipolar.  What a bunch of total bullshit.  All I’m taking right now is 0.5 mg of Klonopin (Clonazepam) twice a day to help with anxiety and sleep.

I used to have a pretty normal life.  I made a six figure income.  My wife (18 years of marriage) didn’t have to work. We had a nice house and the swimming pool I had wanted since I was a child.  Now, all that’s gone.  All because of a stupid little pill and all the people that don’t know what the hell their doing with all these powerful drugs.

During the 13 years I was on SSRI Antidepressants, I saw several different psychiatrists and doctors.  They experimented on me with many different drugs: Effexor, Celexa, Abilify, Alprazolam, Clonazepam (Klonopin), Depakote, Lunesta, Trazodone, Xanax, Zyprexa and of course Zoloft (Sertraline).

Of all the drugs, Lamictal was the worst.  Once the doctor increased the dose from 50 mg a day to 200 mg a day (I’ve since found out that is NOT an increase in accordance with the manufacturers instructions) I had horrible, disgusting nightmares every single night and became highly suicidal.  This happened in October of 2008, and freaked me out so much that I went back on Zoloft and some other drugs so that I could get my sleep.

During all these crazy times, I have survived because of my spiritual faith, the generosity of my mother and some good friends and Divine Grace.  Also, because of the various nutritionists I’ve had over the years, I’ve learned how to eat well and take the right supplements.  Cenitol by metagenics is magnesium supplement that has been especially helpful with relaxing me and helping me sleep.  I order that online at:  http://www.janethumphrey.meta-ehealth.com.

Lastly, I would like to mention that none of these doctors I saw gave me any sort of what I would call informed consent.  I was never informed about all the adverse reactions and side-effects that I’ve now learned were well known back then.  None of the doctors explained that, according to their view of brain chemical imbalance, I would need to stay on these SSRI Antidepressants for the rest of my life.  None of the doctors EVER explained discontinuation syndrome etc, etc, etc.

These drugs manufactures and the doctors that push these drugs are all involved in a horrible scam, the tragic consequences of which yet to become fully manifest.

My intense gratitude to Ann Blake-Tracy and the good work she is doing!
