ANTIDEPRESSANTS & ALCOHOL: Charges for Shoplifting: England

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy:

Applicable to this case and so many others is the fact that
the Physicians Desk Reference states that antidepressants can cause a craving for alcohol and
alcohol abuse. The liver cannot metabolize the
antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously,  which leads to elevated
levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant
in the human body resulting in
toxic reactions.
Keep in mind that antidepressants are notorious for producing
toxic manic reactions. Two types of mania seem apparent in this case:
Dypsomania – an overwhelming craving for alcohol & Kleptomania – compulsion
to take things that are not yours.
Paragraph eleven reads:  “He suffers from
depression and is taking medication for it and on
this day he took medication and had a couple of beers and he can’t
account for why he did it.”

Asda shoplifter was in ‘severe financial straits’

Published at 13:10, Monday, 26 October 2009

A MAN tried
to flee a supermarket with £270-worth of goods and only enough cash for a taxi
home, a court heard.

Paul Richard Charnley stole the items from the Asda
store in Barrow.

But the 40-year-old was caught.

On Thursday,
Charnley appeared at Furness Magistrates’ Court over the theft.

Mr Andrew
Dodd, prosecuting, told the court: “He went into the store and went round
looking at various items, filling his trolley with various goods.

“Once
it is full, he goes into the cafe area where there is no CCTV coverage and is
observed placing items into carrier bags and into the top of the trolley and
then proceeds to leave without any intention of paying for any goods.”

Mr
Dodd said Charnley was followed by store staff and detained outside.

The
court heard Charnley was in “severe financial straits” and had been out of work

for 15 months.

He was said to be “hungry” and only had £5 on him that he
intended to use to pay for a taxi back to his home in Laburnum Crescent, Barrow.

Miss Karen Templeton, defending, told the court: “He says he is
absolutely ashamed of himself and he has been worried sick about coming here.

“He suffers from depression and is taking medication for it and on this
day he took medication and had a couple of beers and he can’t account for why he
did it.

“He takes this very seriously and is very remorseful about what
he has done.”

Charnley pleaded guilty to stealing items valued at £270.44
belonging to Asda on October 7.

Presiding magistrate Mr Les Johnson gave
Charnley a six-month conditional discharge.

Mr Johnson did not force
Charnley to pay a fine due to his money problems.

NASHVILLE, Oct. 25 (UPI) — U.S. country songwriter Rich
Fagan says he wants his life to honor his publisher-friend Tom Oteri who died of
a heart attack after Fagan cut him
with a knife.

The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Sunday while Fagan did
not face prosecution for Oteri’s death on April 26, 2008, the songwriter holds
himself responsible.

“Part of me died that night, too, but it wasn’t the
good part,” Fagan told The Tennessean during an interview in Nashville. “If I’m
here for a reason, it’s to carry on Tom’s legacy.”

Fagan has written a
string of top hits recorded by country music stars, including “Americana,”
“Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident),” “Be My Baby Tonight” and “I Miss
You a Little.”

The official cause of death for Oteri was listed as a

heart attack, not the knife cut on his wrist inflicted by Fagan, and the
publisher’s family members maintained they did not want Fagan to be
prosecuted.

Fagan, who was high on antidepressants and tequila the night
of the fight, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol shortly
afterward. He later pleaded guilty and spent time in a rehabilitation treatment center.

“The last
drink I had was that evening,” Fagan told The Tennessean. “I haven’t had one
since, and haven’t had the obsession to have
one.”

PROZAC: Alcohol Cravings & Assault with Amnesia: Massachusetts

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy:

Serious memory loss is a common complaint as far as side effects to antidepressants go. Even Amnesia is listed as a Frequent side effect for Prozac in the Physicians Desk Reference.

Also applicable to this case and so many others is the fact that the Physicians Desk Reference states that antidepressants can cause a craving for alcohol and alcohol abuse.

Jailed: councillor’s son who stole TV and spat at policeman

8:10am Friday 23rd October 2009

By Lauren Rogers »

THE son of a Worcester councillor has been jailed for spitting at a
police officer and stealing.

Azad Hussain – whose father is former mayor
of Worcester Coun Allah
Ditta
– stole £499 of electrical goods from a woman who was renting a house
from his family.

Hussain, aged 25, claimed she owed him council tax and
said that he was seizing her belongings, including a high-definition television
and computer screen, until she paid up.

However, Worcester
Magistrates Court
was told that the claim was in fact a lie. The stolen
goods have never been recovered.

Hussain, of Richmond Road, off Wyld’s
Lane, Worcester, was found guilty of the theft at a trial he failed to attend
last month. He was also found guilty of assaulting a police officer by spitting
in his face.

The attack happened in May after Hussain was found by
police lying in a front garden.

Matt Dodson, prosecuting, said he was
intoxicated. He said: “His speech was at times incomprehensible and he was
struggling to stand. He refused to leave the area.

“He was arrested
after he lunged at a passing member of the public.”

Hussain spat in the
officer’s face while on the way to the station.

Sam Lamsdale, defending,
said Hussain had no recollection of the assault because the alcohol had reacted
with his medication.

“Mr Hussain was the victim of an attack four years
ago in which he was attacked with a hammer,” she said.

“It is thought he
has since been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, panic
attacks and some psychotic behaviour.”

She said Hussain worked as an
assistant at a residential care home and was responsible for taking his sister’s
children to and from school.

Sentencing Hussain to six months in prison,
district judge Bruce Morgan said: “Community punishments have been imposed in
the past, but obviously do not work because you carry on offending.

“You
steal, you breach court orders by failing to come to court, then there is the
despicable act of spitting at a police officer.”

Clifton house guest strangled and threatened

Monday,
September 14, 2009, 07:00

A WOMAN was told she would be disfigured and
killed by a knife-wielding friend who got drunk at a family party.

Marcus
Musson held a blade to Karen Savage and strangled her until she lost
consciousness.

When he fell asleep, she escaped to the safety of her
mum’s home and called police.

After Musson was arrested, he said he could
not remember what happened.

At Nottingham Crown Court, he pleaded guilty
to assault causing actual bodily harm, and received two years and three months
in prison.

Three months of the sentence was because he breached a 180-day
sentence, suspended for 12 months, for battery on another woman previously
sharing his home.

Judge Dudley Bennett said: “For a decade now you have
been using violence in one away or another on anyone who stands in your
way.

“You grabbed hold of this woman by her hair and pulled her through
from one room to another by her hair. If that stood alone, it is a pretty
horrible thing to do. Then you got a knife and held it to her chin and
threatened to disfigure her.

“Knives kill, I keep saying this.
Mercifully, she did not suffer any injuries as a result of that. You then cut
her hair off in great clumps. That is a disfigurement. It’s dreadful. There you
are using that knife on her. Then you strangle her to the point she loses
consciousness. Then you head-butt her and cut her skin.”

Miss Savage had
known 37-year-old Musson for years and stayed on and off with him in the weeks
leading up to the attack because of problems with her
accommodation.

After a family party in Clifton on Valentine’s Day, Musson
accused her of trying to make advances towards one of her guests.

Miss
Savage, who was not in a relationship with Musson, told him it had nothing to do
with him.

“He reached over, grabbed her hair and twisted it around his
hand and pulled her by her hair into the kitchen and pushed her into a corner,”
said Jon Fountain, prosecuting.

“He got a knife, put it to her chin, then
against her cheek and said, ‘I’m going to kill you. No-one will look at you when
I have finished’.”

Closing her eyes and fearing the worst, Musson hacked
at her hair and threw large clumps to the floor.

He tried to choke her
and said “it’s because I love you” before head-butting her.

Musson, now
of HMP Nottingham, threw down the knife and went to sleep on the
sofa.

Miss Savage fled barefoot from the house to her mother’s home. She
had cuts to her scalp and pain to her ribs.

Musson’s previous convictions
include assaulting police, using threatening words and behaviour, affray and
common assault.

Mitigating, Adrian Langdale told the court Musson had
been drinking 10 to 15 cans of alcohol a day, but had stopped before this
assault.

He said: “He was prescribed anti-depressants following the
break-up of his relationship. All of these matters came to a head on the night
of this offence. For the first time in six to eight months, he started drinking
again.

“It was a jovial affair, a party. His tolerance levels for alcohol

were greatly diminished. It explains, in part, he has very little recollection
of events. Police on arrival found him incoherent and unsteady on his feet, and
he was taken to hospital because of the condition he was
in.”

Mum warned of jail after knifing threat

By Anna
Roberts

September 09, 2009

An eight-year-old girl pleaded for
her mum to stop brandishing a knife at her neighbours after the woman threatened
to stab them.

Joanne Ireson wielded the kitchen knife outside her home
in Cardigan Road, East Reading, at about 8pm on Tuesday, June 16.

The
fracas took place after Ireson’s daughter snuck off to play outside on her own
and she shouted at her to come back.

But Ireson’s concerned neighbours
got “the wrong end of the stick” and called police – causing her to threaten
them with the blade.

At Reading Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, August
25, Ireson – of previously good character – admitted one count of possessing the
eight-inch knife in a public place and one of using violence and/or threatening
behaviour towards neighbour Daniel Thiemert.

Lauren Murphy,
prosecuting, explained the emergency services received three phone calls from
concerned people saying a woman was waving a knife about.

She said: “A
neighbour heard a person shouting and screaming. She stated Miss Ireson was
screaming at her children.”

Miss Murphy said at this point Ireson said:
“If you call the police I will stab you.”

She continued: “She [Ireson]
pushed the neighbour and she fell over. She went in the house and came back with

a knife. She said if she could not stab him she would stab herself.

“The
girl [her daughter] said, ‘Will you put the knife down?’

“Another
neighbour [Mr Thiemert] also said he heard shouting. He said he saw a glass
object being thrown at the young girl.

“He [Mr Thiemert] said, ‘I am
going to call the police’. She said, ‘Who the f*** are you?’”

At this
point Ireson punched Mr Thiemert and threw a cigarette lighter at him.

Charles Maidstone, defending, said Ireson had been depressed since the
death of her partner in February, this year.

“This is a very sad case,”
he said.

“She is on medication. She was also drinking. I understand she
finds it helps her sleep.

“This incident arose from a problem with
disciplining the children.”

He suggested neighbours had got “the wrong
end of the stick” and added Ireson was a caring mum.

Ireson, 36, was
released on unconditional bail to reappear at Reading Magistrates’ Court on
Tuesday, September 15.

District Judge Peter Crabtree said: “I take into
account what has been said about your difficult circum-stances and also that you
are a person of good character and pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity.

“Nevertheless, taking a kitchen knife out into the street is a very
serious offence.”

He said she ran the risk of a jail
term.

Waterside man ran around with axe

Published Date:
09 September 2009
By Staff reporter

A MAN who admitted running
around the Waterside with an axe has been given a three month jail term
suspended for three years.

Gary Keith Millar, 40, pleaded guilty to
possessing an offensive weapon on July 19, 2009.

A previous hearing, the
court heard that police were called to the Bonds Street area to investigate
reports of a man ‘running round with an axe in an agitated state.

The
40-year-old went into his brother’s house and family members were able to remove
the top of the axe and give it to police.

Millar was arrested and during
interview said he had very little recollection of the incident. He told police
the axe was his and that he owned it for work purposes.

During sentencing
at the City’s Magistrate’s Court, defence solicitor Maeliosa Barr said Millar
was a “very vulnerable man” and suffered from depression.

“He realised
that by not taking his medication he got himself into the difficulty he now
faces.”

Handing down the suspended jail term and ordering the destruction
of the axe, Deputy District Judge Bernie Kelly said: “This is a very serious
offence. The arming of oneself with a weapon has to be taken very
seriously.”

Taking into account the fact that Millar had spent six weeks
in custody on remand, the judge said she hopes this “marks a turning point in
any further offending.”

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Owosso man judged incompetent to stand trial

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy:

Rosie is exactly right on her remarks on this case. Head injury is
contra-indicated when it comes to antidepressant use. The Wellbutrin package
insert spells it out better than any of the others if you would like to

Also note that there is another case involving a head injury documented in
the comment section. I will send that out as a separate case next.
__________________________________________
” A previous article stated that this man was on medication for
depression. Since he suffered a head injury, he should never have been given an

Owosso man judged incompetent to stand trial

Saturday, October 3, 2009 9:49 PM EDT

CORUNNA –
The 33-year-old Owosso man accused of two Sept. 11 murders was found incompetentto stand trial and will be remanded to the State Department of Mental Health for
treatment.

Sixty-sixth District Court Judge Terrance P. Dignan signed an
order Wednesday afternoon finding Harlan Drake incompetent. However, Dignan, in
his written opinion, said there is a substantial probability Drake will attain
competence with treatment.

Dignan’s decision was based on a report filed
by the Center for Forensic Psychiatry in Ann Arbor, where Drake was
evaluated.

Drake is accused of shooting Jim Pouillon, 63, as the Owosso

resident stood across from Owosso High School with an anti-abortion sign. Drake
also allegedly shot and killed Mike Fuoss, 61, the owner of an Owosso Township
gravel company.

Police say Drake also planned to target area Realtor Jim
Howe, but was arrested before he was able to carry out that portion of the
attack.

Robert Ashley, Drake’s attorney, said there were multiple reasons
for the court’s incompetency decision.

Ashley said Drake’s suicide
attempt Sept. 13, while he was in the Shiawassee County Jail, was a factor.
Drake shattered a television in his cell and cut his arm near the wrist with
glass shards.

Also, Ashley said, Drake was involved in a 2004 crash that
resulted in the death of two teenagers after they failed to yield to Drake’s
semi-truck. Drake’s family previously said Drake has battled depression since
the fatal crash and subsequently takes medication because of the
incident.

“We have fought all along that Mr. Drake’s mental health was
an issue here and this seems to support that,  Ashley said. “We certainly
want him to get well and now he is in a facility where that can occur – as
opposed to the Shiawassee County Jail, which just wasn’t equipped to handle
him.

Drake will receive treatment at the Center for Forensic
Psychiatry for a maximum of 15 months, according to Ashley. Drake’s preliminary
examination on two counts of first-degree murder, felony firearm and carrying a
dangerous weapon with unlawful intent has been postponed until after Drake
undergoes the treatment and is ruled competent.

I have no reason to

believe that it will take the full 15 months, but I cannot speculate on the
length of time, Ashley said.  I cannot say what the course of treatment
will be. That will be up to the Center for Forensic Psychiatry to determine.

Shiawassee County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Sara Edwards said it is
important to note the Center for Forensic Psychiatry is a secure
facility.

Some believe it is like getting out of jail – it is not,
Edwards said.  Although he is not incarcerated in a jail, he is still in
custody. It’s not a type of place were he gets freedom or gets to go on field
trips.

Edwards added the Prosecutor’s Office still plans to move
forward with the case after Drake’s treatment is complete.

Obviously,
it is our hope that he would become competent through treatment,  Edwards
said.

Antidepressents don’t affect everyone the same way. Just cause they might work
for you doesn’t mean they work for everyone. That’s also why there is more than
one type of antidepressant–cause they don’t all work the same. Let the man get
better so he is “in his right mind” when he is tried. It does no good to punish
someone if they really don’t why they’re being punished. ”

” Mr.Drake isn’t competent enough to go to trial at this time, but, he was
competent enough at the time to purchase many rounds of ammunition and a number
of firearms! He was competent enough to drive a vehicle and drop off a relative
at the High School, but, didn’t know what he was doing when he fired one of the
guns that he was competent enough to buy! He was competent enough to drive that
same vehicle and go to the gravel pit and again use a gun that he was competent
enough to purchase.
I’m sure many of the citizens in Owosso are glad not to

see the “sign-man” anymore. But, should you forget, he was MURDERED IN COLD
BLOOD. Mr.Fuoss was also MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD. They have family members that
MISS them. There are laws somewhere to protect the victims. I believe that there
is a law regarding felons and mentally ill person from purchasing firearms.
Maybe that should be checked out! Hopefully the system will seek them and use
them. By the way, does Mr.Drake get visition with his family and friends? Jim
and Mike do, just at a very different place. Don’t let the “system” sweep this
under the rug. By the way, I didn’t realize that individual cells had TV’s. I
thought that there was a central area provided outside of individual cells for
that. (just wondering) ”

” II was in the Oakland County Jail these past 4 months. My bunkee is in
jail for destroying his home with a hammer. This frightened his poor wife who
arrived home during his rampage. Though his wife was not verbally or physically
threatened or harmed, my bunkee was charged with Felony Assault.

My
bunkee was on meds for depression as a result of a motorcycle accident. His meds
were the reason he went on his rampage. The doctor prescribed something he
should not have been taking, this contributed to his mental state.

It is
possible that Harlan Drake’s situation is similar. It is reported that in 2004
Drake was in a severe motor vehicle accident, and has not been the same since.
Perhaps prescribed drugs contributed to his homicidal rampage.

However,
one thing is very strange; my bunkee had to wait 4 months to get into the Ann
Arbor forensic lab, and he still has not received word from the court regarding
the lab’s prognosis. Harlan Drake seems to get preferential treatment and a
clement court decision within weeks of his shooting rampage.

This is all
too typical of pro-abortion violence against pro-lifers.

When pro-lifers
are attacked at the death camps, and we call for the police, and guess who gets
arrested? Usually nothing happens to the person committing the assault. Others
could say much more. I have heard many, many stories besides my own
experiences.

I am presently in custody in Michigan as a result of road
rage. I was driving a vehicle which displays the same aborted babies Jim
Poullion was displaying not 40 miles from where Jim was shot and killed by
Harlan Drake.

I am accused of the road rage the other person was doing
(I have nothing against bland mini-vans).

I am presently tempted to

plead to a misdemeanor just to get this ordeal over with. My chances of getting
a fair minded jury in this country are very slim. Most people believe that in
any altercation, people who display aborted baby pictures are at fault. They
believe we are deliberately provoking people to fight us. I am sure that is in
the back of most people’s minds when it comes to the shooting death of Jim
Poullion. Though unsaid, they believe he got what he deserved.

But
provoking a fight is not the reason we display the pictures. We display the
brutality of abortion because we want baby-killing to end. We want people to see
and to understand how outrageous it is for a mother to kill her child.
Displaying the pictures saves lives and stirs up repentance. It also brings
about outrage to the unrepentant. Baby-murder is permitted, protected, and
promoted in our nation for 37 years with no end in sight. Displaying the carnage
is the most direct and powerful means we have to combat it’s acceptance.

Those who kill their children have few inhibitions about inflicting harm
on strangers. There is but a thin layer of civility which prevents many from
doing so. Drugs can strip away that thin layer. But even those considered sane,
empowered as of a pastor, judge, juror, prosecutor, politician, or voter
participate in the homicides of 4000 innocent Americans per day.

How
shall those who protect the unborn get fair treatment from those who participate
in their killings? It will not happen this side of glory. ”

Good for him, I know a thing or two about the local mental health care and let
me just say it’s “lacking”. If he needs help I hope he gets it. ”

Why not do the decent thing, and put him out of his misery. Give him the needle
and end it now!!! Too bad he didin’t cut himself deep enough to end it in jail,
Shame on the jailers for for saving his life. Now we have to pay for him to rot
in jail the rest of our natural lives ”

” OMG. I cannot believe how “blind” some people are! This murderer is not
sane- no murderer is sane! This does not mean that I think he should not be
tried for the murders he committed. He should be punished to the full extent of
the law!I am so sick of “criminals” blaming their frickin “depression” or their
“anti-depressant” medication for their crimes! I am depressed and have taken
these types of medications and I did not kill anyone! Perhaps the lawmakers
should consider a persons “mental” health before allowing them a gun permit!!!!

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: VIOLENCE: MAN STABS FRIEND: ENGLAND

Last paragraph reads:  “He said:  ‘He
was
prescribed anti-depressants following the
break-up of his relationship. All of these matters came to a head on the night
of this offence. For the first time in six to eight months, he started drinking
again.”

“It was a jovial affair, a party. His tolerance
levels for alcohol were greatly diminished.
It explains, in part, he has
very little recollection of events. Police on arrival found him incoherent and
unsteady on his feet, and he was taken to hospital because of the condition he
was in.”

SSRI Stories Note:  The Physicians Desk Reference states
that antidepressants can cause a craving for
alcohol and alcohol abuse. Also, the liver
cannot metabolize the antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously,  thus
leading to higher levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant in the
human body.

Clifton house guest strangled and threatened

Monday,
September 14, 2009, 07:00

A WOMAN was told she would be disfigured and
killed by a knife-wielding friend who got drunk at a family party.

Marcus
Musson held a blade to Karen Savage and strangled her until she lost
consciousness.

When he fell asleep, she escaped to the safety of her
mum’s home and called police.

After Musson was arrested, he said he could
not remember what happened.

At Nottingham Crown Court, he pleaded guilty
to assault causing actual bodily harm, and received two years and three months
in prison.

Three months of the sentence was because he breached a 180-day
sentence, suspended for 12 months, for battery on another woman previously
sharing his home.

Judge Dudley Bennett said: “For a decade now you have
been using violence in one away or another on anyone who stands in your
way.

“You grabbed hold of this woman by her hair and pulled her through
from one room to another by her hair. If that stood alone, it is a pretty
horrible thing to do. Then you got a knife and held it to her chin and
threatened to disfigure her.

“Knives kill, I keep saying this.
Mercifully, she did not suffer any injuries as a result of that. You then cut
her hair off in great clumps. That is a disfigurement. It’s dreadful. There you
are using that knife on her. Then you strangle her to the point she loses
consciousness. Then you head-butt her and cut her skin.”

Miss Savage had
known 37-year-old Musson for years and stayed on and off with him in the weeks
leading up to the attack because of problems with her
accommodation.

After a family party in Clifton on Valentine’s Day, Musson
accused her of trying to make advances towards one of her guests.

Miss
Savage, who was not in a relationship with Musson, told him it had nothing to do
with him.

“He reached over, grabbed her hair and twisted it around his
hand and pulled her by her hair into the kitchen and pushed her into a corner,”
said Jon Fountain, prosecuting.

“He got a knife, put it to her chin, then
against her cheek and said, ‘I’m going to kill you. No-one will look at you when
I have finished’.”

Closing her eyes and fearing the worst, Musson hacked
at her hair and threw large clumps to the floor.

He tried to choke her
and said “it’s because I love you” before head-butting her.

Musson, now
of HMP Nottingham, threw down the knife and went to sleep on the
sofa.

Miss Savage fled barefoot from the house to her mother’s home. She
had cuts to her scalp and pain to her ribs.

Musson’s previous convictions
include assaulting police, using threatening words and behaviour, affray and
common assault.

Mitigating, Adrian Langdale told the court Musson had
been drinking 10 to 15 cans of alcohol a day, but had stopped before this
assault.

He said: “He was prescribed anti-depressants following the
break-up of his relationship. All of these matters came to a head on the night
of this offence. For the first time in six to eight months, he started drinking
again.

“It was a jovial affair, a party. His tolerance levels for alcohol
were greatly diminished. It explains, in part, he has very little recollection
of events. Police on arrival found him incoherent and unsteady on his feet, and
he was taken to hospital because of the condition he was
in.”
