The REAL State of the Union in just 889 words…

This was just too good not to share today! Simon Black is one of my most favorite – very bright when it comes to finances – financial advice I am hoping I will need soon when these drugs are finally off the market and I can get on with my life so that I once again have any money to worry about knowing what to do with it!

When this came in my email this morning I thought the only thing missing from this is the serotonin nightmare in which we now live in this nation as the highest users of antidepressants….shockingly senseless and extremely violent murders and suicides, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, air rage, skyrocketing divorce, female school teachers molesting male students, entire families being wiped out in murder/suicides, an epidemic of antidepressant-induced Bipolar completely disabling the lives of so many, etc., etc.

Sometimes I have to wonder if one reason for all this is to distract us from seeing what is really going on in this nation? So I share with you the REAL State of the Union from Simon Black … ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT and WELL WORTH THE READ!

state of the union

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, fellow citizens:

This summer we will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.

This senseless, destructive war was started and championed by politicians who cared nothing for the 9 million people who lost their lives.

And in doing so, they began a century of warfare which continues to this day.

Our military industrial complex is larger than ever. We have nearly 2 million troops and national guardsmen, plus 3.5 million civilians employed in the defense sector.

With such awesome capabilities, we continue to resort to violence and death to exact political goals which benefit a tiny elite.

All of this has created a police state in the Land of the Free that is a far cry from the country we all grew up in.

Your government has spawned a culture of fear and intimidation. Nearly every federal agency, including the Fish and Wildlife Service, has its own gun-toting police force to pistol-whip citizens into submission.

And we’re stocking up. Your government has recently procured 1.6 BILLION rounds of hollow-point ammunition to supplement our existing supplies.

But frankly, we don’t need guns to harass citizens.

Our tax authorities have become more threatening than mafia warlords. The plunder is so severe that record numbers of Americans are renouncing their citizenship and leaving the country.

There are now dozens of federal, state, and local agencies and courts which have the power to confiscate your assets without any due process.

In addition to your house, your business, and your savings, we also have the authority to take your children away from you as if they are property of the state.

We are here to tell you what you can and cannot put in your own body, or whether you can collect rainwater that falls on own property.

In fact, on any given business day, the federal government issues hundreds of pages of new ‘rules’, proposed regulations, draft bills, executive orders, and/or regulatory notices.

And if you are not compliant with these rules, you may be committing a crime. Whether you know it or not.

When this nation was founded, there were four federal crimes on the books. Today there are THOUSANDS. Plus we have millions of government employees at all levels to enforce the penalties.

All of this, of course, is financed by you the tax slave.

You (plus unborn generations) are the poor suckers charged with paying off the national debt we politicians have created….

No, this may not be the country that you all grew up in. But it is the state of our union… whatever remains of it.

Medicated & Depressed FL Mother Who Killed Her 2 Teens Seemed “Off”

Berman Family

Jacqueline, Alexander and Jennifer Berman

Jennifer Berman emailed her ex-husband on Monday to say that she intended to ‘do harm’. Mr. Berman rushed to the home only to find her body was later along with her children Alexander and Jacqueline who had all been shot dead at their Florida home in West Palm Beach. Jennifer Berman had killed them all.

From the clips below from several news articles listed we can see all of the typical clues that those of us who know what to look for would find. Those are highlighted in bold.

1…..”…another neighbor said he suspected something was wrong with Mrs Berman when he saw her over the weekend.

‘I looked into her eyes and she just had this weird look,” said 69-year-old Marian Sklodowski.

‘She had tried to sell me her house for a knockdown price because she wanted the money quick. I knew her very well, and I had never seen this look on her face.

‘She was just off. There was nothing there behind the eyes. I told my wife, but she said I should not get involved.
‘I just wish I had said something now because we have this awful tragedy.’

2…..Their mother, Jennifer Berman, appeared “off” recently, according to neighbor Marian Sklodowski, who lives across the street. “The last time, compared to the first time, something was missing. Something was missing. What was missing, I don’t know,” said Sklodowski.

“Just two days ago, when Sklodowski last saw and spot Jennifer Berman, he said, she appeared upset, disappointed and confused. “You can notice that, from the face, from the eyes, something was strange in her face,” said Sklodowski.

“Just across the street, neighbor Sheren Kirk also noticed something was not right as of late. “It’s shocking that it happened, but, I think, they had a lot of stress,” said Kirk. “There’s been a divorce; there’s been financial problems.”

“A few houses down from Kirk, resident Tim Frank said after the divorce, Jennifer Berman seemed distraught about the future and her kids. “She anticipated that it was going to be very tough for her to move on,” said Frank.

3…..”Two of Jennifer’s cousins who didn’t want to be named said Berman previously threatened to harm herself, but never the children. Police said the morning of the shootings, Jennifer Berman sent emails to Richard Berman and other family members and said she was going to harm herself and the children.
Kaufman said on behalf of Richard Berman that if Richard ever thought Jennifer Berman was a danger to the kids, Richard “would have gone to the end of the earth to stop it.”

“Jennifer Berman was devastated after the loss of her father, grandmother and most recently, her mother, said a cousin who wished not to be named. Jennifer Berman, who was working as a caretaker for a 99-year-old man, had been depressed for a while. The cousin believed she was on medication but wasn’t sure if it was a sleeping aid or for depression.

“Jennifer Berman, an only child, felt alone when she was left without the three people closest to her, the cousin said, and her depression developed as the deadline neared to leave her home. Jennifer Berman’s mother owned the home on Pershing Way and when Jennifer and Richard were going through financial troubles, they moved in. The cousin said Jennifer felt the house was her last connection to her mother.

“Her mother and her were very close,” she said. “I don’t think she would have done any of this if her mother was still alive. I feel like because she was leaving her mom’s home I think the depression turned into psychosis.”

[This is often a time when medication doses are increased or changed – a time when the FDA warns that an abrupt change in dose (whether up or down) can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis.]

“The cousin said Jennifer Berman had previously threatened suicide and was battling with the thought of it

UT Police Officer Kills Wife, 2 Children, Mother-in-law & Self

Boren Family

Joshua “Jaden” (7), Joshua (34), Kelly (32), Haley (5) Boren

All above were found dead in the small Utah community of Spanish Fork along with Kelly’s mother, 55-year-old Marie King. It appeared that all died of gunshot wounds.

Joshua had spent 7 years with the UT County Sheriff’s department before he began working for the Lindon Police Department. There has been no report of a suicide note, but there are reports of problems with the marriage a couple of months ago along with a brief separation.

Clues in this case are many mainly because it was in Utah, which has long been one of the highest users of antidepressants in the nation, A new mandatory program for addressing mental health and on job stressors has just recently been put into place in Joshua’s department. And anyone in Utah knows the first line of treatment for relationship issues or stressors of any type or just about anything that ails you is an antidepressant.

The following is what I just posted in local media on the case and in answer to someone who had just brought up soldiers not asking for help because they are afraid their rights to firearms will be taken from them:

“How right you are and how right they are about their rights to own firearms! I put a blog out on that very issue last week. But in refusing treatment (which is generally antidepressants) they do not remain unhelped because antidepressants do not help with anxiety disorders. Instead they cause them according to research indicating that anxiety, depression, psychosis and suicide are all related to elevated serotonin levels rather than low serotonin levels.

“That has been known since the mid 50’s. In 2000 Dr. Murray Esler in Australia did research on those suffering anxiety disorders and found that they had serotonin levels eight times higher than normal! He then began asking as I have for over two decades why antidepressants are being prescribed for anxiety disorders which will further elevate their serotonin. In fact the latest research shows that antidepressants cause long term depression and it is my opinion after over two decades working with these patients that they also suffer long-term anxiety and Dr. Esler’s research would explain why that is so.

“Since the FDA warned in 2006 that anyone under the age of 25 has double the chance of suicide when they take antidepressants, which is generally the age of our military, why are we not realizing this is where the high rate of suicide is coming from among the troops? Did we all fail math?!

“Cases of murder/suicide as we have seen this week in UT were basically unheard of before these SSRI antidepressants. We have built a database of thousands of cases that can be found on our website if you Google “drugawareness” and “ssristories.” In both of the murder/suicides this week there was indication of possible prescriptions for these drugs….

“In Kyler’s case she had just lost her grandfather who she said was her whole “heart and soul”. This happened in mid Oct.

“In Joshua’s case he and his wife had had some marital difficulties in the past few months and the department had started a program to look for possible mental issues to insure they were treated. It takes so little to be prescribed an antidepressant – especially in Utah! Someone needs to ask in both of these tragedies. They are coming in at such a high rate that I cannot even begin to keep up now after tracking them for over two decades! The public has got to wake up from this serotonin nightmare!”

UT Mother and Two Daughters Dead in Murder/Suicide

Syracuse Murder Suicide

Syracuse Mother and Two Daughters Dead

Kyler

Kyler (32), Kenadee (13), Isabella (7)

UPDATE: 1/17/13: See latest news below stating link to “history of depression” ….

Tuesday evening the news broke that three bodies had been found in this home after neighbors heard what they thought to be gun shots. This morning police announced that it was a mother and her two daughters who were found dead. Police identify them as Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva, 32, and her two daughters — Kenadee Oliva, 13, and Isabella Oliva, 7. What an absolutely beautiful mother and daughters! We are still waiting to learn who killed whom. Be it mother or daughter who was doing the shooting, in both cases we find the use of antidepressants to be very, very high. (It has been confirmed that mother was the shooter.)

Here is one comment from Kyler’s Facebook page indicating there were some health issues:

  • Thanks for your input Kyler..I am so sick of Drs and their guessing games but I am with you on the signs…hopefully next year will be much better for us all..love you Sweetpea be happy

Well mid Oct appears to have been a perfect time for the prescribing of an antidepressant or the increase in an existing one. This was Kyler’s post about her grandfather who passed away then. He died days after this post: Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva

  • October 10, 2013
    My grandpa, who is my heart amd soul, my hero, my love is passing from this world to the next soon. I’m not much of a prayer but please pray for his wife and our family.
    And sadly the youngest child,  Bella,  had her seventh birthday just Saturday the 11th.

To indicate how completely out of character such a violent act as this murder/suicide was for Kyler … she posted this on her Facebook page just three weeks ago:

1505032_10151922983522909_241620271_n

The following is the comment I posted in the local news on this case – something all of us should be doing when these tragedies happen. I would have posted our database of cases (www.ssristories.drugawareness.org) mentioned if this news source allowed links but they do not.

“David W. you are correct that it is rare for a mother to take the lives of her children, but not when the mother is on an antidepressant. After tracking such cases for 25 years in building a database of these cases, which has been used in scientific studies, I suspected such to be the case last night when the news first broke and called a friend in the neighborhood to confirm that.

“Our research indicates over 90% of these mothers are taking or in a few cases have just abruptly discontinued the use of an antidepressant. And it was 15 years ago now that I did the Leeza Gibbons Show addressing this very issue. Sadly nothing has changed since then other than the increased frequency of the cases – little different than what we have found with well over 90% of school shooters being on antidepressants. Curious that both were extremely rare before the introduction of these new designer antidepressants which now have both suicidal and homicidal ideation (compulsive thoughts) listed as potential side effects.

“In this case I once again await confirmation of that connection to these drugs while I continue to wait for the world to see the evidence I have seen in over two decades of testifying as an expert witness in these cases.

“Why post here? Because this is a public safety issue that never should have remained hidden from the general public due to vested interests. Even in doing the Leeza Gibbons Show we were told as we walked onto the stage that we would be allowed to say the word “antidepressant” but we were not to say the brand names of the drugs “because of our advertisers.”

Original article: http://www.ksl.com/?sid=28364908&nid=148&title=syracuse-deaths-were-murder-suicide-police-believe&fm=home_page&s_cid=featured-1

Depression connection mentioned 1/17/13:

“On Tuesday, Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva, 32, shot her two daughters, Kenadee Oliva, 13, and Isabella Oliva, 7, in their Syracuse home before killing herself.

“The mother had just broken up with her fiance and told him to leave their home. Close friend Pegi Butler said Ramsdell-Oliva had fought depression, but things in her life had improved in recent years. She confessed to Butler that she still loved the man deeply but was heartbroken. Still, Butler never suspected she or the girls were in any danger when they spoke on Sunday.”

Read more at http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=28387824#qBzJTOl6cZ8wOzzw.99

In another article Pegi Butler went on to say, “Over the past three years, Butler was hopeful Ramsdell-Oliva was conquering the depression she had fought through her youth, agreeing to participate in counseling and getting her life running smoothly.” 

Read more at http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865594332/Longtime-friend-says-Syracuse-mother-in-murder-suicide-battled-depression.html?pg=all#qXcSebrCBF61kmpL.99

So with being treated for depression for so many years it is clear to me she was either currently on an antidepressant or in withdrawal from one when the shooting occurred.

MUST WATCH!! Conn. Asst. Att. General: Why No Release of Medical Records in Sandy Hook Shooting

Adams Prozac Eyes

The “Prozac Eyes” of Adam Lanza, Sandy Hook School Shooting

Absolutely perfect Paul Pezzack!!! You have done it again!!! Nobody does it better or says it better than you have done here in pointing out this perfect example of Adam Lanza’s “Prozac Eyes”!!!

When you look at the next picture of Adam posted below at the age of about 12-13 he is a normal looking happy boy, but even in this picture his eyes are beginning to give away the signs of the presence of the antidepressant that will over the next few years rob Adam of both his physical and mental health. It can clearly be seen in the later photos like the one you have posted here where those results are obvious as he slowly begins to appear to be a totally different person. The eyes and overall general appearance demonstrate the toll taken over the years by these drugs! Call an endocrinologist and ask how long the body/brain can survive a doubling of cortisol on a daily basis – exactly what studies demonstrate to be the effect of one 30mg dose of Prozac, whose mode of action is little different than any other SSRI antidepressant.

When research demonstrates that 64% of those with Autistic Spectrum Disorders are given antidepressants and approximately 97% of school violence has been committed by someone on antidepressants, the Prozac eyes only confirm what the evidence already indicates is more than highly probable.

Adam Lanza

People need to understand that when Adam Lanza killed his mother any record of what medication Adam was currently taking, other than the data contained within his medical records, most likely died with her. It has already been established in media reports that she shared little about Adam’s health or the treatment he was receiving with anyone else.

And now we have a man who is suppose to be the Assistant Attorney General for the State of Connecticut but can barely speak any English telling us the public has no legitimate need to know what is in Adam Lanza’s medical records. After listening to his statement in the video below it becomes all too clear that these officials KNOW and are intentionally hiding the fact that Adam was on an antidepressant just as approximately 97% of all the other school shooters have been (http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/). Why else are they saying that they do not want to disclose this information and it is not important for the public to be made aware of this because then they may decide after learning that information to come off their antidepressant?!!! So if there are no antidepressants sir, why not at least let us know that?

So they must assume they have not brainwashed the public enough yet about antidepressants and the patients just might put 2 and 2 together on their own and decide that being on an antidepressant s is not such a good idea? Granted the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis, but as long as those patients learn how to come off their antidepressants safely there should be no problem with that. And they can get detailed info on safe withdrawal here: (http://store.drugawareness.org/?wpsc-product=help-i-cant-get-off-my-antidepressant-mp3-download)

So my question is … are they also going to refuse to tell us what happens if we stand in front of a speeding locomotive because we might choose not to stand in front of a speeding locomotive? Hmmm…what am I missing?!! I will stand with Judge John Potter on this issue Mr. Assistant Attorney General. As presiding judge over the Joseph Wesbecker case, where eight died in a Prozac-induced murder/suicide in Louisville, KY, Judge Potter spent two years investigating the verdict in that case. His reason? He believed Eli Lilly, makers of Prozac, had secretly settled with the families of the victims to get them to stop presenting evidence so that they could get a not guilty verdict and voice publicly that Prozac was not the cause of this tragedy, which they did. Two years later it was exposed by Judge Potter as an actual paid settlement amounting to at least tens of millions of dollars. He said his reason for doing this was because knowing Prozac was to blame for those eight deaths is a public safety issue that this information needed be made available publicly.

I will tell you that in 25 years of fighting this battle for the truth about antidepressants I have NEVER before seen a more blatant  assumption of total ignorance on the part of the general public than this ridiculous statement out of the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office! Let it go on record that I am offended Mr. Assistant Attorney General and so should every American on the planet be offended, not to mention the slap in the face this is to all the loved ones of those who lost their lives that day! I thank you for making this cover-up of the truth so strikingly obvious to us all!

About this issue of Adam Lanza’s medical records I say, “Your excuse reeks to high heaven of drug company kickbacks to the state of Connecticut! Are they going to build a few manufacturing plants there to increase your job opportunities? Or are there going to be big donations to your campaigns in the upcoming elections there in Connecticut? Just where is that payoff? They have so many ways to line those pockets, don’t they sir? After all it was only 20 little children who lost their lives (and they couldn’t vote anyway, right?) and only six adults. Win a few, lose a few, huh? You still have plenty more citizens to pay taxes. So, no skin off your nose? Sure we understand. You just really need a way to get guns out of the hands of the public who rarely used them BEFORE antidepressants (which just happen to have both suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects) hit the market and  Sandy Hook just happened to be a great opportunity. Is that it? With this new Obama Executive order on gun control signed January 3 it seems quite clear. You must show that “mental illness” was the cause of this tragedy rather than the drugs, otherwise you have no valid reason to take guns do you counselor?”

Whatever you do … DO NOT miss the following video of the meeting with the Connecticut Assistant Attorney General including his statement in the video below! Then read the evidence which the Attorney General’s office is ignoring on the antidepressant connection to school shootings below the video and share this information with all you know!

http://www.disclose.tv/action/viewvideo/152884/State_of_Connecticut_Refuses_to_Release_Adam_Lanzas_Medical_Records/

Connecticut Meeting

A blind Nigerian lawyer serving as Assistant Attorney General for the State of Connecticut, Patrick Kwanashie  

gives decision on the question of release of Sandy Hook School Shooter Adam Lanza’s medical records:

“No matter how the outcome of the use of antidepressants, or the causal link between the use of antidepressants and kind of violence that took place in Newtown, that’s not a legitimate use of information, that information. You can’t generalize just from one case. Even if you can conclusively establish that Adam Lanza – his murderous actions – were caused by antidepressants. You can’t logically from that conclude that, you know, others would commit the same actions as a result of taking antidepressants. So it’s simply not legitimate, and not only is it not the use to which they are proposing to put the information, not legitimate. It is harmful, because then you can cause a lot of people to stop taking their medications; stop co-operating with their treating physicians. Just because of the heinousness of what Adam Lanza did.”

…Patrick Kwanashie, Assistant Attorney General, Connecticut

I heard that same argument from the attorneys at Oprah when I presented the list of mothers who had killed their children I had investigated in the early and mid 90’s. But about 90% of those moms were taking antidepressants. Now I would prefer, as I believe most would, to know about that common denominator in the cases whether we have yet determined a causal link or not. No matter the common denominator, especially when that common denominator is known to change behavior, I would want to know and so would any good law enforcement investigator.

1998 Connecticut Lottery Shooting Leaves Five Dead (Luvox)

Perhaps Mr. Kwanashie should consider the only other mass murder/suicide like this in the state of Connecticut referred to in news reports at the time of the Sandy Hook shooting. That is the case in Newington, Connecticut of lottery worker, Matthew Beck, 35, who in early morning, in March of 1998, chased co-workers through the lottery offices gunning down four of them before shooting himself. Matthew had worked in this position for eight years and had just returned from medical leave for stress. He was taking the same antidepressant that Eric Harris was taking when he shot his classmates at Columbine, Luvox. His parents made this information available to me and they have continued to follow our work at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness ever since then knowing full well the antidepressant was the cause of their son’s actions.

Not Guilty Due To Prozac/Adderall-Induced Psychosis 

Next Mr. Kwanashie should check for any precedent setting cases in the state of Connecticut where he would find the case of a Stamford, Connecticut attorney, Eric Witlin, who was found not guilty after shooting at a motorist twice and then breaking into his ex-wife’s home with a gun in hand. In that case Senior Assistant State’s Attorney James Bernardi said Witlin’s mental state of psychosis on the night of the incident was uncontested, since both psychiatrists, defense as well as prosecution, agreed. What they both testified to was that Witlin’s actions stemmed from a psychotic episode brought on by Adderall, prescribed for attention deficit, and the antidepressant Prozac.

So it would appear that the courts in Connecticut have already determined that there is a causal connection between antidepressants and homicidal actions Mr. Kwanashie and they felt that information “legitimate” enough to issue a not-guilty verdict based upon the conclusion that Mr. Witlin’s actions were caused by the use of those medications.

Sandy Hook was a murder case and in a murder case toxicology is always a critical piece of the puzzle! Unless, as I mentioned above, you are withholding that information for Obama to issue the executive order he issued on January 3, 2014 designed to limit the second amendment to restrict guns from those who are the so called “mentally ill” – I say so called mentally ill because when it is medication-induced it is a temporary psychotic break that dissipates when the drug flushes from the system, not a valid mental illness.

Additional Critical Information on School Shootings

Prophetic statement to me by a pharmacist on school shootings in 1999:

“The symptoms I see in patients who abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over confidence in ones own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abusers life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton, KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now.

“The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individuals persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.

“Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann? Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!” (From Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare)

For All Who Have Lost Loved Ones to Prescription Drugs

IBelieve

DIAMOND RIO – I BELIEVE

Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Qb5HmyHTaA

Karol Truman, author of the excellent book “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die,” which I recommend in my book on the dangers of antidepressants is a dear friend of mine. Last week Karol sent me her son Dan’s latest release and asked me to share it with others. Dan is in the popular Country Western group, Diamond Rio.

And as I was playing Dan’s latest song, “Oh My Father,” which you will find at the bottom of this page, I noticed a Diamond Rio song posted near it, called “I BELIEVE.” After just reading the statement about 17 year old Claire Davis passing away a week after being shot in the latest school shooting at Arapahoe High School, just eight miles from Columbine, watching the video brought me to tears. Here is that quote: “Shannon Wilhelm cried and held her son tightly in her arms. ‘Being a parent, the fact that you have to lose your child around the holidays or any time, it’s just not something you want anyone to go through,’ she said.”

So….for all of you parents missing a child this Christmas, husbands missing a wife, wives missing a husband, children missing a parent, friend’s missing a friend or relative, etc. I dedicate this song to you with the hope that through its message you will find hope in the gift brought to us all from the Christ Child born on this day so long ago whose Father also lost His Son in order for us all to be together again. I too believe.

Diamond Rio – “I BELIEVE”

Lyrics from “I Believe”

Every now and then
Soft as breath upon my skin
I feel you, come back again
And it’s like, you haven’t been

Gone a moment from my side
Like the tears were never cried
Like the hands of time
Were pulling you, and me

And with all my heart, I’m sure
We’re closer than we ever were
I don’t have to hear or see
I’ve got all the proof I need

There are more than angels watching
Over me.. I believe.. ohh, I believe.

Now when you die, your life goes on
It doesn’t end here, when you’re gone
Every soul is filled with light
It never ends, if I’m right

Our love can even reach, across-
Eternity.. I believe.. ohh, I believe.

Forever, you’re a part of me
Forever, in the heart of me
I will hold you even longer
If I can…

Oh, the people who don’t see the most
See that I, believe in ghosts
If that makes me crazy, then I am
Cuz I believe.. ohh, I believe..

There are more than angels watching
Over me.. I believe.. ohh, I believe.

Every now and then
Soft as breath upon my skin
I feel you, come back again..
And I believe…

****

Claire Davis, Shot in Arapahoe, CO School Shooting Died Today

Claire Davis

CLAIRE DAVIS, DIED SATURDAY

FROM INJURIES ARAPAHOE SCHOOL SHOOTING

At the makeshift memorial at Arapahoe High School today many came to say their goodbyes. Shannon Wilhelm cried and held her son tightly in her arms. “Being a parent, the fact that you have to lose your child around the holidays or any time, it’s just not something you want anyone to go through,” she said.

Last Friday Karl Pierson set off one of the incendiary devices he brought into Arapahoe High School just eight miles from Columbine and fired five shots before killing himself just one minute and 20 seconds after entering the building and being confronted by an armed guard. In that minute and 20 seconds he also shot 17 year old Claire Davis who was just sitting with a friend.

Sadly today Claire Davis the high school senior shot last week in the Arapahoe High School shooting died at 4:29 p.m. in the Littleton Adventist Hospital after eight days on life support. Even though we have not had the opportunity to visit for several months now, Claire passed away in Littleton at the same time I was visiting over the phone with Mark Taylor in Denver. Mark was the first boy shot at Columbine High School.

Ironically Claire reminds me so much of Rachel Scott, the first girl shot at Columbine High School. Besides looking so much alike, they both were so very sweet and caring – beautiful on the outside as well as beautiful on the inside.

Classmate Maggie Hurlbut said of Claire, “One time I remember I was upset in the hallway, and she came up to me and she just – it was like, `Hey Maggie, I know we don’t know each other well but are you doing OK?’ And I told her yeah, and she was like, `Anything you need, I’m here for you,'”… “she just wants to take care of others, and that was really just a good representation of her character and who she was.”

Allison Bruhn, a junior at Arapahoe, arrived Saturday evening just as she had the previous eight days….”I’ve been coming every night and praying for an hour, praying that Claire would be OK, that she would get better,” she said. “Our school loves Claire. She was such a nice and giving person.”

Although we do not know yet if Karl was prescribed an antidepressant which could have contributed to his violent behavior and suicidal behavior, both adverse drug reactions known to double in this age group if given an antidepressant. We do know that 68 out of the 70 school violence incidents investigated thus far have found a perpetrator on an antidepressant: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/ Increasing serotonin – the mode of action of antidepressants – has LONG been known to produce impulsive murder and suicide http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda .

Listen to a school shooting suspect describe what happened to him when he took a gun to school and what triggered it for him: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

As I have said so many times before, our world cannot afford these losses! We have lost far too many loving, caring, and brilliant individuals. We need them here! We cannot afford to let any more of them leave! Something must be done to prevent this from continuing!

ARAPAHOE SHOOTING: WHO WAS KARL PIERSON?

Karl Pierson

Karl Pierson, Arapahoe School Shooter

Who was Karl Pierson and what do we know about him so far?

Yesterday morning Karl Pierson ran into Arapahoe, CO high school where he was an excellent student and began shooting before an armed guard stopped him cold in less that 1 minute, 20 seconds leaving many to ask if we need armed guards in all schools.

Do we have any clues yet as to why this young man would have done what he did yesterday in taking a gun, machete and two suspected Molotov cocktails with him to school Friday, December 13, and opening fire, seriously injuring a female classmate who was apparently just in the wrong place at the wrong time, before taking his own life?

First of all we do know his parents had filed for divorce in 2011 and the divorce was finalized just over a year ago in August of 2012. We do not know if he had therapy for this in which he was prescribed an antidepressant which could have contributed to his violent behavior and suicidal behavior, both adverse drug reactions known to double in this age group if given an antidepressant. Increasing serotonin – the mode of action of antidepressants – has LONG been known to produce impulsive murder and suicide http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda .  Anyone familiar with that research would not be surprised in the least to learn that 68 out of the 70 school violence incidents investigated thus far have found a perpetrator on an antidepressant: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/

Listen to a school shooting suspect describe what happened to him when he took a gun to school and what triggered it for him: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

Other than the parent’s divorce and him being disaplined recently by his debate coach, who he targeted in this shooting, there is little to indicate that Karl Pierson would have ever taken the steps he took yesterday of running into his school armed to do extensive harm. “Pierson’s parents divorced in late 2011, according to court records. The divorce was finalized in August 2012.”

“Karl Pierson was a bright student and enthusiastic high school debater who got into trouble with his debate coach.”

Known as a gifted debator he participated in national finals this past summer…”
neighbors were in shock … Pierson was a dedicated, bright student from a religious family that attends Bible study meetings…They’re just a normal middle-class family, like many of the families around here,” said neighbor Diane Shea.”

“Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, knew Pierson. They said he had political views that were “outside the mainstream,” but they did not elaborate.

“Schmidt said the shooter “was an outspoken kid about what he believed and a good political thinker.”

“Mendelson added, “He did have a lot of friends. He was popular with the people he knew.”

But we also know this: “A bright student who voiced strong opinions in class and on the debate team (especially about gun rights), dividing his time between divorced parents, some suggestions that he might have been bullied now and then, a run-in with a teacher who had ordered him suspended when the student threatened the man.”

So….violent behavior had been demonstrated before this in a run-in with this teacher. Yet those who knew him best describe him as someone who would not be expected to act upon any such threat or take revenge.

“I had class with him and knew he was very outspoken and willing to contribute, and also that he had a controlled temper he would use during discussion,” Carl Schmidt, a fellow senior, told the Los Angeles Times.

“A lot of people picked on him, but it didn’t seem to bother him,” Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with Pierson, told the Denver Post.

“High school senior Frank Woronoff told CNN he had known Pierson since they were freshmen together.

“He was the last person I would expect to shoot up a high school. He was honestly incredibly humble and down to earth. He was a little geeky but in a charming way,” he said.”

But there may have been some disappointment in not being able to progress further in the national debate competition this past summer and certainly disappointment in being taken off the debate team. Was there someone there ready to medicate his troubles away when he was only miles from Columbine where not quite one and a half decades ago an entire community had their troubles medicated away with funds donated to the victims of Columbine High? Most likely there were many ready to do exactly that.

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.”
