1. SOLDIER “MAY HAVE GONE BERSERK” IN AFGHAN SHOOTING

SOLDIER “MAY HAVE GONE BERSERK” IN AFGHAN SHOOTING:

Okay things are beginning to come out about this case … SO LET’S LOOK AT THEM….

#1 Very significant is that two years ago this soldier suffered Traumatic Brain Injury. Anyone who has had a brain injury should NEVER be given an antidepressant according to neurologist, Dr. Jay Seastrunk. The brain is far more vulnerable to seizure activity after such an injury and taking a stimulant (An ANTI-depressant or the opposite of a depressant IS A STIMULANT!). Remember that a manic psychosis is a continuous series of seizures in the brain which is basically what REM Sleep is also. (Keep that in mind as you read below about REM sleep.)

#2 In this article Dr. Johnathan Shay describes what he calls Berserk: “Berserkers … have this curious quality of icy and flaming rage; all they want to do is destroy, they want nothing to get in the way of their unmediated destruction and killing, and they are truly insensitive to pain. They are totally beyond the society of their own military forces and disconnected from them.”

“It’s a painful and destructive thing and usually fatal for the soldier… The term “berserk” is an Old Norse word describing the frenzied trance in which some warriors fought.”

Now what he has just described as “berserkness” is what is a perfect description of “homicidal ideation” – a compulsion to kill – continuous thoughts of killing and continuous thoughts of methods of killing – coupled with rage. Both rage & homicidal ideation are listed side effects of antidepressants which are prescribed at a shocking rate to our military! The main drug anyone would think of producing this type of reaction is PCP (Angel Dust) & antidepressants are the most similar drugs in action to PCP the world has ever seen!!

#3 Another quote from this article states: “And sleep is unmistakably the fuel for the frontal lobes of the brain, and when you’re out of gas in the frontal lobe you become a moral moron — a catastrophe with no moral restraint.” Combat stress, or PTSD in its most virulent form, tends to disrupt sleep.”

PTSD in its most virulent form does disrupt sleep but what disrupts sleep even more is antidepressants. One of the first things noted about the first SSRI antidepressant on the market, Prozac, was how it repressed REM Sleep. Now for those of you who have read my book, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare, know after reading the chapter on the REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) that antidepressants cause this disorder where you act out nightmares. More recent research demonstrates that 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are currently taking an antidepressant even though it has mainly been known as a drug withdrawal state. So those in withdrawal have an even greater chance of going into this sleepwalk nightmare we call RBD!

Close friends of mine had a son leave for Iraq a couple of years ago. The young man called his father, a social worker, to ask about taking an antidepressant. Why? Because he was told by Army personnel that he would need one in order to go to Iraq! Knowing a little about my work after learning a close friend of his was stabbed, along with his mother & sister, by their father, who then shot himself after only five days on Zoloft, he was concerned about antidepressants. A veteran himself, his father’s response was level headed. He told his son that if he ever needed to have his thoughts together & control over his actions & NOT be under the influence of a mind altering drug it would be while carrying a gun & facing what he would in Iraq.

Now what was most alarming to me was that so much pressure had been put on this young man by his superiors to take these drugs that even after all he had witnessed in his own personal life they had pushed him to the point that he would even feel like he needed to ask his father this question!!! Clearly our troops are being pressured into taking these drugs & have been drugged out of their minds for many years now – even to the point of this is the first war in which we are losing more troops to suicide than combat!!

I urge you to share this information with local reporters & everyone you know as a warning of the most deadly aspects of these drugs we mistakenly call “antidepressants”! Send them to read my FDA presentations how how these drugs can produce such violence at www.drugawareness.org (located just under the picture of my book on the right side) & to our database of cases like this one at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org so they can see the evidence that does exist & is presented in courtrooms in these cases. None of this should remain hidden from the public because this is a public safety issue!!!

Rosie and ssristories.drugawareness.org

For all of you who have appreciated www.ssristories.com I would encourage you to post a quick thank you note for Rosie Meysenberg, our Texas director for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness.  Since the mid 90’s Rosie & I have worked together in gathering cases involving SSRI antidepressants. Those early stories formed the beginning of www.ssristories.drugawareness.org. She & her husband, Gene, put together the SSRIstories website, an incredible searchable database of these cases & then Rosie began to add more and more cases as the search engines became more and more available to us on the internet for news articles. Finally reaching a total of almost 5000 cases. Two major medical articles have already been written with this database as the catalyst.

Now Rosie is battling cancer & for the last two weeks Hospice has been there assisting she & her husband with her care. She is asking for our prayers. Please join us in praying for her. And please send her a thank you for the great work she has done for us all – dedicating her life to documenting these cases for us at great sacrifice on her part.

The following is the link to her Caring Bridges page where you can leave a message:

And the following is the latest update from her sister-in-law:

A word about Rosie
I know that all of you who have been so gracious to write in Rosie’s guestbook, also are probably wondering how she is doing. Hospice has been helping them for the last couple weeks. Rosie is bedridden and very weak. Gene prints all of your messages and reads them to her so keep them coming. Mostly she wants and needs your prayers. We all know and love Rosie so lets be there for her. Thank you so much.

Rosie’s sister-in-law,
Joyce Meysenburg

1 dead, 4 injured in NE Ohio school shooting – 2-27-2012

YET ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING!!! How can these continue? Basically non-existant before antidepressants hit the market. Now there is another one every time you turn around & in almost every case there is you will find an antidepressant involved as we will likely find in this one as well. How this can continue to go on right under the noses of everyone and so few “get it” is beyond me!!! Orwell could not have pegged our age any better than he did in his book 1984!

www.wmbfnews.com

Chardon Fire has confirmed they were called to the high school for a shooting. The Fire dispatcher said students are possibly injured.

STOP ANTIDEPRESSANT VIOLENCE from ESCALATING

Tonight I got a call from a close friend I have known for over 20 years. He called to let me know that his 32 year old niece committed suicide on antidepressants today leaving her husband & three children behind. Last week I got a call from another close friend whose son-in-law made several very impulsive serious suicide attempts after taking only one Zoloft. So why you ask do I do what I do in working so hard to educate others to the dangers of these drugs? Because … no matter who you are … antidepressants come through your back door when you are not looking & destroy lives of those you love!!!

This is the link to a site posted by an amazing young man who has been able to accomplish this much from inside a prison cell after he killed his father while on Prozac when he was just a teen: http://www.thesaveproject.com/ I do hope you click on Kurt’s site and watch the video that was a Primetime special we did a few years back. In the video you will see MANY of those I have worked with over the years that have come to be like family to me. I cry everytime I think of the precious lives that have been lost to us all because of these deadly drugs!!!!!

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Violence: Stand-Off: Oregon

Paragraph 3 reads:  “According to a Clackamas County
Sheriff’s report, Hatcher took a large amount of antidepressant
medication
coupled with alcohol
just before 9 p.m. on Nov. 18 and
turned violent. Family members fled the home, called the police and said Hatcher
wanted responding officers to shoot him. Emergency responders began arriving
shortly after the call and attempted to initiate communication with
Hatcher.”

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.

Standoff with armed gunman ends peacefully

SWAT team called in to negotiate with Estacada man

By Evan Jensen

The
Estacada News, Nov 20, 2009

Twenty-five miles east of downtown Estacada,
near the Ripple Brook Ranger Station on Highway 224, a mentally disturbed
Estacada man went on a rampage Nov. 18, breaking windows, chasing family members
from the home and firing shots from a .22-caliber rifle.

But after a
two-hour standoff with Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies and SWAT negotiators,
Brent A. Hatcher, 28, was taken into custody and booked in the Clackamas County
Jail for unlawful use of a weapon and reckless endangerment, with bail set at
$200,000. Charges of attempted murder were dropped, but Hatcher remains in jail
under close supervision.

According to a Clackamas County Sheriff’s
report, Hatcher took a large amount of antidepressant medication coupled with
alcohol just before 9 p.m. on Nov. 18 and turned violent. Family members fled
the home, called the police and said Hatcher wanted responding officers to shoot
him. Emergency responders began arriving shortly after the call and attempted to
initiate communication with Hatcher.

“At 10:14 p.m., Bret Hatcher
answered the telephone at the resident and declared repeatedly that he had a
rifle and would shoot to kill,” CCSO Public Information Officer Jim Strovink
said.

At 10:22 p.m., deputies at the rear entrance of the residence
saw Hatcher exit the residence with rifle in hand. While the Special Weapon and
Tactics Team was being mobilized, deputies continued to try and make contact
with Hatcher, then heard two gunshots fired in their direction.

“The
stationed deputies on the perimeter could hear the rounds whipping through the
tree line in close proximity to where they were positioned,” CCSO Capt. Kevin
Layng said.

At 11:16 p.m., SWAT negotiators made contact with Hatcher by
phone and continued to attempt to calm him and develop an exit plan to take
Hatcher into custody without anyone getting hurt.

“Clackamas County’s
SWAT negotiators receive extensive training in the art of communicating with
people in challenging situations, especially those with mental-health issues,”
Strovink said. “… An estimated 35 percent of all inmates at the Clackamas County
Jail suffer from some form of mental-health issue.”

SWAT negotiators were
able to take Hatcher into custody without incident and transport him to the
Clackamas County Jail. Upon collecting evidence from the scene, investigators
found that the .22-caliber weapon Hatcher fired had malfunctioned and one round
was found jammed in the chamber, making the weapon inoperable.

“This
incident involves a man mixing his medication with alcohol, destroying his home,
chasing his family from the resident, and then arming himself with a rifle…”
Strovink said. “… but it did have a successful conclusion. He was safely brought
into police custody, with no injuries to anyone. … The SWAT negotiators did a
commendable job, calmly managing a difficult and threatening subject on the
phone and securing a peaceful
surrender.”

ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Compulsions for Alcohol, Violence: Man Stabs Friend: England

“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

was in.”

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.”
