Thu May 10, 2012 11:42 pm (PDT)

When I did the radio show Monday evening with Jeff Rense (www.rense.com) there was someone listening in New Zealand. That person was the radio talk show host Vinny Eastwood. So I will be on the Vinny Eastwood Show tomorrow, Friday, May 11, 2012 from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM Pacific Time. Vinny’s website is: http://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/

We have continued to get reports over the years of far too many antidepressant cases happening in New Zealand as well as the rest of the world. How very tragic that even in such a beautiful country these horrific cases would spoil their Paradise! PLEASE use this information to share with others to stop these tragedies!!! That is how I got a good friend of mine to stop using these drugs. If a patient hears enough about antidepressants, they will want off them! Just make sure that they know how to get off safely by referring them to our website at www.drugawareness.org to get my CD on safe withdrawal. Why? Because withdrawal can be worse than staying on the drugs if you do not know what you are doing in withdrawal!!!

Hopefully you have all had a chance to check out our new membership area on the site Members.drugawareness.org

DEPRESSION MED: Man Accused of Plotting to Kill Deputies: Washington

Paragraph eight reads: “A woman who helped raise McConnachie told KIRO 7
that he has a drug problem and is on medication for depression.”

Officials: Man Accused Of Plotting To Kill Deputies Had Officer’s Stolen
Gun
Posted: 5:31 pm PDT April 13, 2010Updated: 2:45 pm PDT April 14, 2010

EVERETT, Wash. — A 19-year-old man accused of planning to kill sheriff’s
deputies had a gun stolen from the home of a police officer, said Rebecca
Hover of the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Michael McConnachie made his first court appearance Tuesday and his bail
is set at $350,000. He is being held for investigation of conspiracy and
drug charges.

McConnachie was arrested at an Everett motel on Sunday after police
received a tip. Everett police said a burglary suspect who went to McConnachie’s
motel room said McConnachie claimed to be looking for a driver who would
help him kill deputies.

Inside his room, police said they found a shotgun, a handgun, bullet proof
vests and heroin. One of the guns found was reported stolen in January
from the home of a police officer who lives and works in Snohomish County,
Hover said.

The officer is not a deputy, but Hover did not say what agency he works
for.

Investigators said McConnachie was planning an attack similar to the
Thanksgiving weekend assassination of four Lakewood police officers.

Hover said it appeared to be more than idle talk.

A woman who helped raise McConnachie told KIRO 7 that he has a drug
problem and is on medication for depression.

“He does have an anger management problem, but I have never ever heard him
talk the way he’s being accused of talking to the officers,” said Betty
Firl.

Police said McConnachie told them he didn’t intend to hurt anyone.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — The woman who pleaded
guilty to causing a fiery crash that killed a mother and two high school
students will spend a minimum six years behind bars.

In February, Erma
Brown pleaded guilty to three counts of DUI causing death.

Crawford. Crawford, her daughter Meaghan, 16, and Kelsey Kuhn, 15, died in the
crash after their car caught fire.

During Monday’s hearing in Cabell
County Circuit Court, Judge Dan O’Hanlon sentenced Brown to three consecutive
2-10 year prison terms. That is the maximum sentenced allowed for her
plea.

Brown was taking prescription medication for depression and panic
attacks the morning of the crash. But during that plea hearing She admitted
publicly she was taking much more than what was prescribed.

Before
handing down the sentence, the court heard from both families.

DEPRESSION MED: Murder-Suicide: Man Shoots three Deputies: Kills One

Paragraph five reads:  “Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer
said Friday that Liles
had been taking medication
for depression and probably took his own life with a gunshot to the
head.”

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-minkler27-2010feb27,0,2450243,full.story

A slow burn suddenly turns deadly in Minkler, Calif.

First there was a series of fires in the small town east of Fresno. Then
came the shootings. On Thursday, a shootout left a sheriff’s deputy dead and two
other law enforcement officers injured.

(Paul Sakuma /
Associated Press / February 26, 2010)

By Diana Marcum

February
27, 2010

Reporting from Minkler ­ Trouble had been brewing in tiny
Minkler, a Sierra foothills community about 20 miles east of Fresno, for months.
But residents never envisioned that it would end with two people — one a
sheriff’s deputy — dead and two other law enforcement officers
wounded.

Joel Wahlenmaier, 49, a veteran with the Fresno County Sheriff’s
Department who investigated homicides and other violent crimes, was killed in
Thursday’s gunfire. Deputy Mark Harris, 48, was injured.

Javier Bejar, a
Reedley police officer who responded to the call for backup in the minutes after
Wahlenmaier was shot, is on life support at Community Regional Medical Center in
Fresno and is not expected to survive.

The suspect, Ricky Ray Liles, 51,
died during the gun battle that erupted when authorities attempted to serve him
with a search warrant.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Friday that
Liles had been taking medication for depression and probably took his own life
with a gunshot to the head.

Liles had told his wife “that he would not go
to prison,” Dyer said at a news conference. “He would take the lives of several
officers before taking his own life.”

On Friday, what there is of Minkler
was cordoned off as a crime scene, helicopters buzzing overhead.

But
Minkler’s worries began about five months ago with small fires. A bunch of
leaves here, a patch of grass there.

“You’d come out and say, ‘How did
that tractor seat catch on fire?’ ” said rancher Jeff Rodenbeck,
51.

Eventually, a shed and a trailer burned. Then the shootings started.
Someone shot up the Minkler Cash Store six times since January. On Monday,
someone fired four bullets into Sally Minkler’s mobile home.

“Sally said
she bent over to get her cellphone and the bullet went right where her torso had
been,” said Mary Novack, who runs the Minkler Cash Store, the nerve-center and
commercial entirety of Minkler, a town so small it once was listed for sale on
EBay.

Residents were convinced the culprit was Liles, a former security
guard renting a mobile home on Minkler family property across from the
store.

“He was just your average pasty white guy with a bad back,” said
Jeff Butts, who grows grapes and plums along the Kings River.

“But when
you know all your neighbors, you look around and say, ‘Well, I know it’s not
Mary, and it’s not Charlie and it’s not Sally’ . . . and pretty soon everyone
came up with Liles,” Butts said. “He wasn’t friends with anyone. But no one ever
actually saw anything they could prove. Things were getting tense out
here.”

On Thursday morning, Novack was relieved when she saw law
enforcement vehicles pull up to Liles’ place. She called Butts and told him cops
were about to knock on Liles’ door.

“Hey, this guy is finally going down,
let’s go to the store and watch,” Butts said he told one of his
workers.

A small crowd gathered on the front porch of the general store,
which has held court in Minkler since 1920. They watched as a deputy kicked in
the door, shots were fired, an officer slumped, more law enforcement came and a
prolonged gun battle raged.

“I was stunned. I didn’t even get down,”
Butts said. “I kept thinking, ‘What are they doing? Those can’t be real
bullets.’ The cops are saying hundreds of rounds were fired, but it had to be
thousands.”

He was incredulous when a woman, later identified as Liles’
wife, Diane, and a dog emerged from the trailer. “I don’t see how anyone came
out of that alive,” Butts said.

Half a mile down the road, Rodenbeck
heard the first volley of shots. He loaded a pistol and rifle, and got his wife
and teenage daughter away from the house in case gunmen emerged from the woods
behind their home. Then he went to see what was going on.

When the bigger
gun battle began, he crouched inside his truck’s tire well.

“Look, this
is the country, gunfire is not a big deal, you hear it all the time. Someone’s
shooting at coyotes. Or skeet,” he said. “But this was a war zone. It sounded
like the cops had automatic rifles and they kept shooting. If you’d been here,
you would have hit the ground. It rocked this place. He killed a cop right in
front of them, and they don’t take lightly to that and I can’t say I blame
them.”

Rodenbeck moved to Minkler from Huntington Beach to raise his
family away from the city. He likes the beauty — “this is river bottom, green
all the time” — the quiet, and the fact that men such as Charles Minkler, the
great-grandson of Orzo Minkler, who founded the town in 1892, can still load
1,000 bales of hay. Minkler is in his 70s.

“Out here, men don’t get old.
They get beat up and wrinkled, but they don’t use canes,” Rodenbeck said. “They
have chores to do.”

But he was never under any illusion that violence
couldn’t touch this place.

“They say they used to hang people from that
tree over there,” he said. “Charlie can tell you about the bandits that used to
hide out in these hills. Different people have different reasons for wanting to
be out somewhere quiet.”

Novack, 54, recalls drug-dealing motorcycle
gangs in the 1970s. As a teenager, she glimpsed white-robed Ku Klux Klan members
burning crosses at the river’s edge.

“That’s a sight you never forget,”
Novack said. “It’s chilling.”

She looked around at the orchards in bloom,
snow-dusted peaks and sheepdogs trying to make friends with the
police.

“People are saying, ‘In Minkler? It’s so beautiful and quiet
there.’ But good and evil are everywhere,” she said. “Right in front of you.
Right next to each other all the time.”

ANTIDEPRESSANT: School: 14 Yr Old Student Shoots to Death Another 14 Yr Old

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org):

When I sent this case out to our investigative group I told
them not to dismiss this case as just another “gang shooting” because for two
decades kids weaning off these drugs have told me that they have no
idea why but while on the drugs they had joined gangs and done things they would
have never thought of doing. Of course when you go manic on an antidepressant

what you do is NOT what you would normally choose to do.

_____________________________
Paragraphs eight through thirteen read:  “The shooting
followed the suspect’s decision to get out of the gang, said Huntsville attorney
Bruce Gardner, who is
representing the young suspect
in early legal proceedings.”

“Gardner said they called themselves
Crips, the name of a real nationwide gang started in Los Angeles. It had
“initiation rituals and renunciation rituals,” Gardner said.”


‘Renunciation rituals’ are what gang members go through to leave the gang,
Gardner said.”

“He said his client’s initiation rite required him to

spray-paint  ‘Crips’ on a Discovery bathroom wall. Police confirmed Tuesday
that a bathroom at the school was sprayed with gang graffiti at some point, but
did not say specifically when.”

“After being sent to alternative school
as punishment, Gardner said the boy, who was taking medication for

depression, received counseling that
persuaded him to leave the gang.”

My client had made known his
intention to leave the gang,” Gardner said. ‘When you renounce, you must submit
to a physical beating. It’s called ‘suiciding out.’

Madison police say both suspect, victim belonged to the same would-be
gang

By Lee Roop

February 10, 2010, 7:11AM
MADISON, AL — Both the suspect and victim in Friday’s fatal
Discovery Middle School shooting belonged to the same would-be gang, officials
said Tuesday.

Speaking inside the school in front of a large poster with
Todd Brown’s picture and memorials written by students, authorities gave their
fullest picture so far of the investigation.

Brown, 14, died Friday after
being shot during a class change at the 1,001-student school. The suspect, also

14, has been charged with murder and is being held in a juvenile
facility.

Police have identified fewer than 10 middle school boys,
including the suspect and victim, “who wanted to possibly align themselves with
some sort of national gang,” Police Chief Larry Muncey said.

They didn’t
know how to join a real gang, Muncey said, so they “went online and learned how
to walk and how to talk and how to dress.”

“I’m not saying some weren’t
serious,” Muncey said.

Brown’s family told WHNT-TV Channel 19 in a brief
statement Tuesday that they had never known Brown to be involved in gang
activity.

The shooting followed the suspect’s decision to get out of the
gang, said Huntsville attorney Bruce Gardner, who is representing the young
suspect in early legal proceedings.

Gardner said they called themselves
Crips, the name of a real nationwide gang started in Los Angeles. It had
“initiation rituals and renunciation rituals,” Gardner
said.

“Renunciation rituals” are what gang members go through to leave
the gang, Gardner said.

He said his client’s initiation rite required him

to spray-paint “Crips” on a Discovery bathroom wall. Police confirmed Tuesday
that a bathroom at the school was sprayed with gang graffiti at some point, but
did not say specifically when.

After being sent to alternative school as
punishment, Gardner said the boy, who was taking medication for depression,
received counseling that persuaded him to leave the gang.

“My client had
made known his intention to leave the gang,” Gardner said. “When you renounce,
you must submit to a physical beating. It’s called ‘suiciding out.’

Gardner said the boy was told he wouldn’t be beaten, but he did
voluntarily “burn his bandana” in a sort of symbolic resignation. Gardner was
referring to the blue bandana Crips wear to show affiliation.

“I am not
suggesting for a minute that this kid deserved to be shot,” Gardner said of the
victim, but there is evidence of cyberbullying and threats against his client
after he wanted out.

Gardner said his client’s parents are “devoutly
religious people” who are “mortified” by the slaying.

Gardner also
confirmed that Brown was shot with a .22-caliber pistol but said he did not know
where the gun came from.

Addressing rumors circulating about the case,
Muncey and Madison City Schools Superintendent Dee Fowler also said:


Their investigation did not find gang activity at any other Madison

school.

“They thought it was cool,” Muncey said of the Discovery gang,
“but when their parents came in, I don’t think they thought it was cool
anymore.”

“No parent admitted knowing” anything about the gang, Muncey
said.

• The suspect was a student at Discovery all year, Fowler said,
although he no longer is. His education is now being handled by the juvenile
detention center.

Gardner said the boy did transfer from Liberty to
Discovery during the summer after problems – none of them major – at
Liberty.

• Video cameras were installed when the 9th-grade wing at
Discovery was built. Muncey would not confirm the shooting was caught on camera,
but said he “would be surprised if it was not.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: 26 Year Old Man Assaults 16 Year Old Girl: Scotland

Rapist such a risk that he’ll be under watch until he dies

Published Date: 05 December 2009
By JOHN ROBERTSON

A MAN who held a schoolgirl captive for seven hours and then raped her
was given a life sentence yesterday.


Ryan Smith, 26, snatched the teenager off the street and
kept her in his home overnight. She was allowed to leave after giving him a
kiss.

A judge was told that Smith, from Saughton, Edinburgh, had been
assessed as posing a “very high risk” to the public and to women in
particular.

He had earlier admitted abducting, assaulting and raping the
16yearold girl on 8 February.

The girl had never met Smith before, but
they had a mutual friend and she was in a group that was at his flat that night.

The men were drunk and there was a row between Smith and one of the
others in the street. The girl was walking away from the scene when she heard
Smith say: “You’re dead.”

He grabbed her by the neck and pushed her
against a hedge, and then dragged her into his flat.

Neil Beardmore,
prosecuting, said: “She was crying and trying to break free, but was unable to
do so. It was about midnight … there was no-one passing in the
street.”

Smith threw the girl on to a bed, and lay down beside her. He
put his hand over her mouth when someone came to the door, and then indecently
assaulted her.

She repeatedly told him to stop and hit him, but he bit
her on the arm.

“He would alternate between making threats and being
apologetic,” Mr Beardmore said.

“This continued throughout the night and
she considered trying to escape but was afraid of what the accused might do if
he caught her. She was continually in fear of her safety and her
life.”

At about 7am, Smith raped the girl, as she pleaded to go home and
was crying and shaking.

As he allowed her to leave, he told her she
would be “battered” and “killed” if she told the police.

The girl

revealed what had happened to a friend, and the police were contacted.

Mr Beardmore said she had suffered nightmares and now feared sleeping
alone or going out alone.

Jim Stephenson, defending, told the High Court
in Edinburgh Smith wanted to apologise to the victim. “He cannot believe he
carried out these acts,” he said.

The court heard Smith had an alcohol
dependency and had received treatment at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.

He had attempted suicide by an overdose and was taking medication for
depression at the time of the offence.

His criminal record included
convictions for fireraising, and serious assault against a woman.

The
judge, Lord Brailsford, ordered that Smith must serve a minimum of seven years
before he could apply for parole.

He imposed an order for lifelong
restriction, and said Smith required treatment for underlying psychological
problems.

“An order for lifelong restriction is the only means the court
has of ensuring you will not be released until such time as the risk you pose
has been evaluated as being at an acceptable level,” Lord Brailsford
said.

If and when Smith is released, he will remain on licence for life
and be liable to be recalled to custody.

ANTIDEPRESSANT WITHDRAWAL: Mother Kills Baby: Pennsylvania

Paragraph 16 reads:  “The defendant’s defense lawyer,
Pietro Joseph D’Angelo, told the court that at the time of the baby’s death,
Brown should have been taking medication for depression and
anxiety.”

“Brown, who is currently back
on prescription medication,
testified she is better able to
cope.”

By KEITH PHUCAS
Times Herald Staff

COURTHOUSE
­ A Norristown woman who admitted causing fatal injuries to her 20-month-old
toddler last November, when she shook him and banged his head against a bed
headboard, was sentenced to prison Friday.

Jennifer Brown, 24, who
pleaded guilty in September to involuntary manslaughter and endangering the
welfare of a child, was sentenced by Montgomery County Judge William R.
Carpenter to 11 1/2 to 23 months behind bars and three years’
probation.

Brown has already been incarcerated for seven months and is
eligible for Montgomery County Correctional Facility’s Work Release
Program.

She severely injured her son, Lathario Brown-Jacobs, on Nov. 25
in his bedroom at the family’s East Jacoby Street home, and the child died in
the hospital three days later.

After paramedics attempted to treat the
child at the scene, he was taken to Montgomery Hospital. Physicians there
suspected the severe trauma was not accidentally inflicted, and the child was
transferred to Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, where he was put on life
support.

When the injured boy was initially hospitalized, the woman
claimed she was awakened by sounds coming from her son’s room at 3 a.m.,
according to court papers, and when she went to check on him, he was having
difficulty breathing.

The mother claimed she tried to wake him, but he
reportedly didn’t respond, and she got upset and began shaking him and hit his
head several times, according to authorities. Around 4 a.m., the mother called
911 to report her son was having breathing problems.

A Norristown day
care center that took care of Lathario Brown on a regular basis told
investigators that the boy frequently had a bloody nose or bloody lip when he
was dropped off in the morning, according to court papers.

When
Norristown Detective David Mazza and County Detective Rich Nilsen interviewed
Brown a second time, she admitted shaking the boy and hitting his head several
times on the headboard or the wall, and at some point the toddler “went
limp.”

According to court records, Dr. Chase Blanchard, a forensic
pathologist with the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office, performed an
autopsy. Dr. Lucy Rorke-Adams, an expert in neuropathology, examined the child’s
brain tissue, and concluded he died as a result of a severe brain
injury.

The defendant’s mother, Eleanor Brown, and the child’s father,
Terrence Jacobs, testified at the sentencing hearing.

“My daughter has
been through a lot of pain and suffering,” Eleanor Brown said. “This has made
her stronger.”

Jacobs, who is also the father of the 24-year-old woman’s
other children, described her as a “very passionate” person. He said the couple
had lived together in Augusta, Ga., but the couple split up and Brown returned
to Norristown.

“She was the thread that held our family together,” he
said.

The defendant’s defense lawyer, Pietro Joseph D’Angelo, told the
court that at the time of the baby’s death, Brown should have been taking
medication for depression and anxiety.

Brown, who is currently back on
prescription medication, testified she is better able to cope.

“It makes
me feel real calm,” she said.

Brown, who graduated from Norristown Area
High School in 2003, played on the school’s field hockey and lacrosse
teams.

Just prior to sentencing, Carpenter said the defendant had no
prior criminal record and was actively participating in counseling programs in
prison.

“I find she is genuinely remorseful, and has the support from her
family,” the judge said.

Since the child’s death nearly a year ago,
Brown’s brother and father have also died.

“She has suffered, and we all
have suffered,” Eleanor Brown said.

criminal responsibility for his alleged actions.

He said Goodine’s
sister, a social worker, informed him that Goodine has been diagnosed with a

chemical imbalance and takes medication for depression.

Crown prosecutor
Cameron Gunn didn’t oppose the request.

Judge Julian Dickson ordered the
assessment.

Goodine will return to court Dec. 16.

Update: America’s Most Wanted Man: Shot 4 Relatives Dead at Thanksgiving Dinner

Paragraph six reads:  “Merhige has a history of mental
instability and took medication for depression and anxiety.
A law enforcement source has told CBS4 News the suspect had previously attempted
suicide, but U.S. Marshal’s appear convinced Merhige is still alive and on the
run.”

http://cbs4.com/local/Paul.Michael.Merhige.2.1385733.html

The top stories on CBS4.com

The crime-fighting show
America’s Most Wanted” will once again profile the Thanksgiving night massacre
in Jupiter that left four family members dead and one of their relatives on the
run.

The show will focus on the international manhunt for Paul Mehrige,
in partnership with the Jupiter Police and the US Marshals Service.

Host
John Walsh has a news conference scheduled for Tuesday afternoon on Miami Beach
where he’ll be joined by Jim Sitton, the father of the 6-year-old girl who was
killed in the shootings. Officials from the Jupiter Police Dept. and US
Marshal’s Office will also be there.

Federal authorities have already
unveiled billboards with a picture of Merhige in South Florida — one on
southbound Interstate 95 in the Delray Beach area and the second in the
Hallandale Beach area, just north of the Miami-Dade County line.

Merhige, 35, is wanted on four counts of first-degree murder charges in
the deaths of his 6-year-old cousin, 79-year-old aunt and twin sisters after
Thanksgiving dinner in Jupiter.

Merhige has a history of mental
instability and took medication for depression and anxiety. A law enforcement
source has told CBS4 News the suspect had previously attempted suicide, but U.S.
Marshal’s appear convinced Merhige is still alive and on the run.

Investigators have previously released ATM photos of Merhige withdrawing
large amounts of cash before the murders, part of what they believe was a
pre-conceived plan to be able to maneuver without leaving a trail of electronic
transactions.

He may be driving a royal blue 4-door Toyota Camry. There
is a $100,000 reward for information leading to his capture.

If  anyone has information about Paul Michael Merhige, contact the Jupiter Police
Department at (561) 746-6201, their local law enforcement agency or Crime
Stoppers’ anonymous “TIP” phone number, 1-800-458-TIPS (8477).
