Original article: http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/13/us/colorado-school-shooting/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

Yet another school shooting today with reporters asking why another in Colorado again?

I can tell them why! It is because when Columbine happened they used the funds coming in to help the survivors to build a new counseling center where they peddled antidepressants like crazy! The kids could not even pick up their mail from those sending condolences to them unless they picked them up at the new counseling center where they would of course do all they could to put more of them on the meds. And it was not just the children, but whole families. Therefore much of Colorado became medicated at that point.

We then began to watch more and more cases involving antidepressants came in from Colorado.

So now we wait to see how long it will take to find out what this young man was taking. But while we wait I would encourage you all to share with as many as you can our list of school shootings: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/ along with our list of school shootings in video format: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be and our video of a school shooting incident Why I Took a Gun to School … http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1 where the young man who took a gun to school while under the influence of Effexor and in withdrawal from Paxil explains what happened to him. As far as I know this is the only interview of a school shooter talking about what happened because most commit suicide after as this young man did today in Colorado.

Also see this same young man involved in that shooting incident as he joins together with Mark Taylor, the first boy shot at Columbine High, to tell the world why these shootings continue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPOcNp5OgyY

Antidepressant: Woman Who Made False Accusations of Abuse at Duke Found Guilty of Murder

crystalmagnum

Crystal Magnum

Found Guilty of Murder

This case makes it clear why it is so important for the public and the judicial system to recognize and understand these antidepressant-induced False Accusations of Abuse or recognize any of the early toxic reactions. This case of her false accusations of abuse against the Duke players was a warning sign of potentially more dangerous toxic reactions to her medication. Even though the story below refers to the case and states that “Magnum’s inconsistent story and her mental stability was called into question” still no one linked her questionable mental stability to adverse reactions to her antidepressant. If someone would have known enough to see her first case as a toxic reaction to the antidepressants she was on, and these false accusations of abuse are such common reactions to antidepressants, then they should have known enough to wean her off the medications at that point … before it reached the point of her committing murder as the drug reactions worsened leading to violence. This was completely preventable!!!

You can see the progress of the toxicity in her behavior listed below:

* 2006 – Falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her in a gang rape…Magnum’s inconsistent story and her mental stability was called into question. …Prosecutors declined to press charges for the false accusations, but Mangum’s bizarre legal troubles continued.

* Not long after she was convicted on misdemeanor charges of setting a fire that nearly razed her home with her three children inside.

* In a videotaped police interrogation, she told officers she set got into a confrontation with her boyfriend at the time – not Daye – and burned his clothes, smashed his car windshield and threatened to stab him.

* 2011 – Stabbed boyfriend, Reginald Daye, killing him.

You can find all of this listed as examples of antidepressant toxic reactions in my 2004 http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda and 2006 testimonies before the FDA http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

DO NOT SUFFER PANIC ATTACKS IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN!!!

 

pregnant woman

Thanks to Daniel Duke for bringing our attention to this case out of England along with the reminder that this is what we will have to look forward to with Obamacare! Sadly this was a mother trying to protect her baby by coming off medications known to produce death and serious birth defects while a government stepped in to forcibly put her back on the drugs thus exposing her child to even more damage. Then they forced the baby from her body and stole her child after doing that. Now they will force the public to pay for the damage they forced upon the child via those drugs which we know can affect the child the rest of its life both physically and mentally, not to mention all the emotions of going through such an ordeal!

An Italian woman, apparently attempting to withdraw from her antidepressant and other medications for Bipolar Disorder during her pregnancy – which withdrawal, especially if abrupt, regularly causes panic attacks, indeed did suffer a panic attack while visiting in England to attend a class. She called police (which appears to be a very dangerous thing to do any longer for any reason!). They took her to a hospital, she thought. She quickly learned it was instead a psychiatric facility.

Then the Child and Family services got a court order to take her child – yes the child still in the womb. So four weeks later she was sedated and the baby forcibly taken by Cesarean Section!!!!!!! Then the child was placed for adoption because they were not sure she would not have additional problems in the future!!!!

Now remember she was an Italian citizen, and was only visiting in England at the time this happened to her! She has now hired an attorney to fight for the child that was literally forcibly taken from her womb. Where on earth have any semblance of human rights gone?!!!!!

According the original article:

“She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition….She called the police, who became concerned for her well-being and took her to a hospital, which she then realized was a psychiatric facility.

“She has told her lawyers that when she said she wanted to return to her hotel, she was restrained and sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

“Meanwhile, Essex social services obtained a High Court order in August 2012 for the birth “to be enforced by way of caesarean section”, according to legal documents seen by this newspaper.

“The woman, who says she was kept in the dark about the proceedings, says that after five weeks in the ward she was forcibly sedated. When she woke up she was told that the child had been delivered by C-section and taken into care.
In February, the mother, who had gone back to Italy, returned to Britain to request the return of her daughter at a hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court.
Her lawyers say that she had since resumed taking her medication, and that the judge formed a favorable opinion of her. But he ruled that the child should be placed for adoption because of the risk that she might suffer a relapse.”

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/10486452/Child-taken-from-womb-by-social-services.html

PLEASE keep in mind my previous posts about social service workers and the massive insanity so many of them suffer as a result of their widespread use of antidepressants! In 1992 we know that 60% of state employees were taking antidepressants! How high could it be now? And who monitors them when their medication-induced delusions affect the innocent people they have authority over? These social workers who are self proclaimed “nut cases,” once they have come off these drugs and come to their senses again, are causing sheer havoc in our society with no checks and balances!

And as one author puts it, this case is only one of thousands more!!!!! Read this eye-opening article “Child Taken From Womb by Social Services is Tip of Massive Iceberg  http://jolliffe.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/child-taken-from-womb-by-social-services-is-tip-of-massive-iceberg/

But this case may have gotten enough publicity to at least gain an appearance of justice as a judge demands a good reason for this and declares families should not be broken up.   “Explain why you snatched baby girl at birth: Judge’s order to social workers behind forced caesarean”

Are Vivid Dreams A Concern in Antidepressant Use?

 

Dr

Dr. Tracey Marks

Thanks to our Southern Washington State Director for ICFDA (International Coalition for Drug Awareness) who learned firsthand how deadly vivid dreams are in association with antidepressant use when his son took a gun to school in a dream state while on Effexor and in withdrawal from Paxil and held his classmates at gunpoint for what seemed an eternity for some.

Dr. Marks downplays any importance of the SSRIs repression of REM sleep and the vivid dreams or nightmares associated with these drugs and even suggests switching to another antidepressant if this reaction bothers you…yet she gives no warning of the dangers of switching medications by going off abruptly and then on another one abruptly – the way all meds are prescribed.

My response to this video and the incorrect information relayed:

“This is perhaps the MOST IRRESPONSIBLE statement I have ever heard on antidepressant adverse reactions!!! These antidepressant-induced vivid dreams are the most dangerous reactions anyone can have next to Serotonin Syndrome. That is because the vivid dreams indicate you are on the verge of suffering an antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) where you act out these dreams or nightmares! Add to that the fact that in RBD 80% are known to hurt themselves or someone else. RBD is even known to result in murder and suicide committed in a sleep state! Before SSRIs RBD was rare but not now and now 86% of those being diagnosed are taking an antidepressant – a figure shocking even to the world’s leading experts on this disorder who found this percentage!

“The repression of REM sleep via a medication reaction or sleep deprivation has long been known as a trigger for psychotic breaks. So I am confused as to why would you tell patients not to worry about this? Eric Harris, the lead shooter at Columbine, had those vivid dreams about killing his classmates for some time on the antidepressant Luvox before acting out those dreams on April 20, 1999!

“I have raised the issue of this deadly sleep disorder associated with antidepressants often preceded by the vivid dreams for 2 1/2 decades and would like to know if you have vested interests due to working for a pharmaceutical company? Or are you trying to avoid a wrongful death suit brought by a patient who suffered this reaction? Something just does not smell right when you are downplaying such a deadly reaction to antidepressants.”

NY Pharmacist Shoots Wife, 2 Sons and Self

NY Pharmacist Kills Wife & Sons Before Killing Himself

 Abbas Lodhi had been a pharmacist for 2 1/2 decades, was happy, had just sold his business to spend more time with his children, he was doing well financially, had just sold his home as well and was planning on opening a new pharmacy when he committed this triple murder/suicide.

People having adverse reactions to antidepressants think everyone around them are “mentally ill” and need to be medicated. This man owned a pharmacy with easy access to meds and associated with docs who hand them out like candy – I say that because the large majority of docs prescribe these deadly drugs this way. With that in mind I do hope they check his meds. (See original articles below)

The first pharmacy to pull the first new designer SSRI antidepressant off their shelves was in Florida after one of the pharmacists, the wife, attempted suicide while on Prozac. But the other pharmacist, her husband, remained on the drug thinking he was okay in spite of her warnings, until he walked in the TV room one day and shot himself in front of his wife and children! That was Maria and Gary Malicoff in Hialeah, Florida.

Antidepressant-induced Deaths Via Medicating Post-Natal Depression

Antidepressant-induced suicide by train

Excellent article from Antidepaware detailing inquests in three cases of mothers throwing themselves in front of trains after being given antidepressants for PND! Our thanks goes out to our New Zealand Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness for bringing this article to us. I have found that it is almost impossible to find a suicide by train that does not involve the use of an antidepressant!

Let me also add to this article on PND that in gathering the thousands of antidepressant-induced tragedies over the past two and a half decades for our SSRIstories database (www.ssristories.drugawareness.org) I have also found the lack of suicides or psychosis in unmedicated moms suffering PND. It is rare to find a mother who commits suicide or goes into psychosis unless they are being medicated with an antidepressant.

One point I have always made in these cases of PND is to encourage all to check antidepressant package inserts where you will find that the possibility of suffering psychosis as a side effect from an antidepressant as opposed to the possibility of Post Partum Psychosis from PND is ten fold greater with the antidepressant than PND alone. Why increase a mother’s chances of psychosis so drastically by adding an antidepressant when the psychosis can lead to the mother taking not only her own life, but the life of her child as well?

I encourage all to read this article! http://antidepaware.co.uk/medicating-post-natal-depression/

Zoloft: Republic, MO woman arrested Wednesday in 2011 death of her toddler

Julie Horstmyer

Julie Horstmyer, 31

Our thanks goes out to our Southern Washington State Director, Jay Baadsgard, for bringing this case to our attention…. For two decades I have said that Pfizer has turned the Land of OZ completely upside down to change it into the Land of ZO as they have flooded KS and MO with their antidepressant, Zoloft.

In another case out of MO a mother has been charged in the death of her baby daughter. Two years ago in November of 2011 Julie Horstmyer called to report the death of her two year old daughter Berklee Marie Robertson. Apparently officials initially thought the baby had died of SIDS. But as it turned out the baby had ingested her own mother’s prescription for Zoloft. The medical examiner determined that the baby died of an overdose of Zoloft.

Although officials believe the mother intentionally gave the drug to the baby they have charged her with involuntary manslaughter in the death of the child.

Republic Woman Charged and Arrested for Child’s Death

CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Mo. — A Republic woman is accused of causing her two year old daughter’s death two years ago.

Julie Horstmyer is charged with involuntary manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child.

Two year old Berklee Robertson was found dead inside a home in Clever, MO in November of 2011.

A grand jury indictment states Horstmyer gave the young girl Sertraline, better known as Zoloft, then failed to seek medical assistance.

“It’s kind of scary,” says Clever Resident Geri Wallen. “But it’s just a sad story.” Wallen lived next door to Horstmyer at the time of the two year old’s death.

Wallen remembers police and ambulance vehicles lined up outside her neighbor’s home back on November 5, 2011. It wasn’t long after that she found out the reason for all the ruckus was that a two year old child passed away.

“We didn’t know what to think,” Wallen says. “I didn’t think there would be any foul play. I just prayed for the little girl and her family because it’s such a loss.”

Now, two years later, Julie Horstmyer is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child.

“What it boils down to is there was quite a bit of forensic evidence that came back at a later date,” says Christian County Sheriff Joey Kyle. “That made the case considerably stronger.”

Sheriff Kyle says there was always a strong suspicion that Horstmyer had some involvement in two year old Berklee’s death.

“Upon arrival, nothing really seemed out of place except possibly a SIDS death,” says Sheriff Kyle. “But during the autopsy, we discovered things that led us to believe it wasn’t negligence but more of a deliberate act.”

The Sheriff couldn’t go into detail, but tells us the charges are based on what the prosecutor feels they can prove during trial.

“It’s primarily stuff like trace elements, toxicology reports, opinions from pathologists,” say Sheriff Kyle.

Neighbors living along Little Avenue says they rarely saw Horstmyer or her two year old child when they lived there two years ago.

“It’s unnerving since I have kids of my own,” says Wallen. “And it just really wrenches my heart that people could do that to their kids. They’re given to us for a reason and God gives them to us to raise and take care of. Not to take advantage of or send back to him.”

Now, two years later, Sheriff Kyle says it’s nice to finally have some closure in the case.

“It’s like the fish that got away,” he says. “There’s some closure here.”

Horstmyer’s arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 8 at 10:00 a.m.

Study: High Psychotropic Medication Rates For Children With Autism

pills

STUDY: HIGH PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICATION RATES FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

(Keep in mind as you read through this critical information that Autism is a condition of ELEVATED serotonin levels and nearly everyone of the medications Autistic children are being given are drugs designed to INCREASE serotonin levels thereby making the Autistic symptoms worse. Yet doctors are prescribing these drugs to 64% of Autistic children with everyone working to find ways to combat the symptoms of Autism while they are taking medications that make those symptoms worse!!! This also indicates that Adam Lanza, the shooter at Sandy Hook, had a 64% chance of being on one of these medications since he had a diagnosis of Autism.)

And research shows that mothers on antidepressants (all antidepressants increase serotonin) have a 3 to 4 times greater rate of having a child with Autism! Autism is only one of MANY birth defects associated with a mother’s use of antidepressants. To give one of those children additional drugs that increase serotonin levels after the initial exposure within the mother’s womb, thus giving the child no opportunity to recover from that initial exposure, is beyond criminal in my opinion!

The very first birth defect noticed in the offspring of children born to mothers on antidepressants was hypoglycemia which contributes to higher rates of seizures, attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression. With that in mind read below about those being treated with multiple medications and higher odds of being medicated with these drugs are the ones showing symptoms of seizures, attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression which indicates these are more likely those children who became Autistic due to their mother’s use of an antidepressant during pregnancy!!!

Disclaimer: Please do not attempt withdrawal or any change in dose without reading withdrawal information below!

THE STUDY OBJECTIVE AND RESULTS

OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study were to examine rates and predictors of psychotropic use and multiclass polypharmacy among commercially insured children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

RESULTS: Among 33?565 children with ASD, 64% had a filled prescription for at least 1 psychotropic medication, 35% had evidence of psychotropic polypharmacy (=2 classes), and 15% used medications from =3 classes concurrently. Among children with polypharmacy, the median length of polypharmacy was 346 days. Older children, those who had a psychiatrist visit, and those with evidence of co-occurring conditions (seizures, attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression) had higher odds of psychotropic use and/or polypharmacy.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite minimal evidence of the effectiveness or appropriateness of multidrug treatment of ASD, psychotropic medications are commonly used, singly and in combination, for ASD and its co-occurring conditions. Our results indicate the need to develop standards of care around the prescription of psychotropic medications to children with ASD.”Roughly two-thirds of children in the U.S. who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have been prescribed at least one psychotropic medication, according to new estimates published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday.

“In addition, 35 percent of the children were simultaneously prescribed two or more psychotropic medications, including antidepressants, attention deficit disorder medications and antipsychotics.

“Fifteen percent had been prescribed at least three different types of psychotropic drugs.

NO PROOF THESE DRUGS ARE SAFE IN CHILDREN

“I believe the takeaway is that children are on a lot of psychiatric medications without proof that they work or are safe in children,” study researcher Anjali Jain wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. Jain, a managing consultant with health care consulting firm Lewin Group, added that “nothing is known about what happens to effectiveness or safety when drugs are combined — or about long-term effects.”

Live Coverage: LAX Shooting, 1 Dead 7 Injured

LAX shooting

LAX shooting: The latest

Another shooting….another SSRI antidepressant??? Airports nationwide on alert. Once again we wait and see. Then we wonder again when will it end?!

Decades of research documents that when antidepressants increase levels of serotonin they produce impulsive murder and suicide. Although with all of the absolutely insane rules and regulations TSA now has it is a wonder no one has started shooting before now! I just choose not to fly. But this is what we now know about 1 dead TSA agent and seven others wounded:

“A gunman armed with a high-powered rifle opened fire at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday morning, killing a TSA agent and wounding several others, authorities said.
Authorities said the gunman fired at several locations in Terminal 3 before police shot him. LAX police did not reveal his condition.

[Updated at 1 p.m.: The Times earlier reported that the suspect was dead. But sources have since told the paper that he is in critical condition.]

“The motive was unclear. A federal law enforcement official said that the gunman was a ticketed passenger entering the airport.

Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, entered the airport around 9:20 a.m., Pacific Time, and opened fire inside Terminal 3. The Associated Press also reported that authorities named Ciancia as the suspect.

According to the AP:

A law enforcement official, who was briefed at LAX on the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly, said the gunman was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he “wanted to kill TSA and pigs.” The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

The suspect was in custody and being treated for injuries sustained during an exchange of gunfire with police.

Associated PressPENNSVILLE, N.J. (AP) – The young man believed to have carried out a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport had sent a sibling a text message mentioning suicide, leading their father to seek authorities’ help in finding him, a New Jersey police chief said Friday.

Paul Ciancia’s father called Pennsville Police Chief Allen Cummings early Friday afternoon saying another of his children had received a text message from the 23-year-old “in reference to him taking his own life,” the chief told The Associated Press.

The elder Ciancia, the owner of an auto-body shop in southern New Jersey, asked for help in locating Paul, Cummings said. The chief called Los Angeles police, which sent a patrol car to Ciancia’s apartment. It wasn’t clear whether the police visited before or after the airport shooting.

“Basically, there were two roommates there” Cummings said. “They said, ‘We saw him yesterday and he was fine.'”

Dr. Peter Gotzsche: Deadly Medicine and Organized Crime – How Big Pharma is Corrupting Healthcare

Dr

Dr. Peter C. Gotzsche, MD

This lecture by Dr. Peter C. Gotzsche, Danish medical researcher and author of “Deadly Medicine and Organized Crime – How Big Pharma is Corrupting Healthcare” is well worth the view! Although in Danish there are English subtitles. The following is just one example of common sense observations he brings out:

“The criteria for diagnosing depression – has been lowered and lowered over the years. Many years ago when there wasn’t any medication for depression only 1/1000 people were considered depressed, compared to today.

“According to the DSM III [published in 1980 before the SSRI antidepressants were introduced] if you lost your spouse, a year had to pass before you were considered depressed.

“When the DSM IV came out [published in 1994 right at the height of the SSRI antidepressant sky rocketing of use and the same year my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? was published.] it suddenly changed to 2 months [after the death of a spouse in which you needed to be in mourning before receiving a diagnosis of “depression”]

“Now we have DSM V [published in 2013] and it only takes two weeks! If you are still in mourning after two weeks you can be diagnosed as depressed. Few marriages can be so bad that you only mourn for 14 days afterward.. Despite the fact that it is quite a task to be married.

“That’s going too far.”

Prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. In his latest ground-breaking book, Peter C. Gøtzsche exposes the pharmaceutical industries and their charade of fraudulent behavior, both in research and marketing where the morally repugnant disregard for human lives is the norm.

He convincingly draws close comparisons with the tobacco conglomerates, revealing the extraordinary truth behind efforts to confuse and distract the public and their politicians.The book addresses, in evidence-based detail, an extraordinary system failure caused by widespread crime, corruption, bribery and impotent drug regulation in need of radical reforms.

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!
