Pasadena Police Chief Art Miller
Thank to Brent Ledger for bringing us this case out of South Pasadena, California. Two teens had a plot for a mass shooting at South Pasadena High School and they were willing to die in the shooting. Neither boy had a criminal record or previous issues involving the police.
But according to Police Chief Art Miller at a news conference the two boys, ages 16 and 17, had researched weaponry, explosives and methods for disarming people. “As they were planning it … they had a very specific plan on how they were going to carry out their sick mission,”
The teens, who have not been identified, “very cold-heartedly” discussed their plans with each other online.
“As they put it, they just wanted to kill as many people as possible,” Miller said.
Homicidal and suicidal ideation does not consist of just killing others or oneself. Rather it is having constant ruminating thoughts and compulsions about killing and how to accomplish that. Sounds like what these boys are being accused of doing. So what we need to know is “Were they suffering homicidal and suicidal ideation from antidepressants or other serotonergic medications?” This is the question that should ALWAYS be asked in these cases! With the most common denominator in school shootings being the use of an antidepressant by the perpetrators it is only common sense to do so.

WITHDRAWAL 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!
