PROZAC EYES: VT Social Worker, 3 Relatives Killed Over CPS/DCF Custody Battle

Jody Herring


Laughing and calm after the killings Jody Herring pleaded not guilty today of shooting and killing a social worker and 3 of her own relatives last Friday only weeks after losing custody of her nine year old daughter to the state of Vermont. This killing of a DCF/CPS worker is certainly not a first like this and there is likely to be many more of these cases.

Why would I say that?

Because it is common practice for DCF/CPS to put children they take into the system on antidepressants since of course they are depressed after being ripped away from their families. But not only does DCF/CPS drug the children with these drugs known to produce both homicidal and suicidal compulsions, they also do everything possible, including working with family court judges, to force everyone on an antidepressant who is remaining at home in a family who has a child taken. I watched them do it to a friend in my old neighborhood just three years ago. Luckily she and her other children knew enough to refuse the drugs in spite of them working to force them on them any way they could think of.

The most likely reason why the DCF/CPS workers want everyone else drugged is because the large majority of these social workers are on antidepressants themselves and far too many of them completely psychotic on them already! The social worker supervisor involved in my friend’s case admitted she had been on the same antidepressant, Zoloft, which they forced the 13 year old daughter on, for a total of 20 years!

In a case I worked on in Texas several years ago the man was an ex-social worker from Chicago. After running into legal problems as a result of Prozac he had weaned off the drug and began to realize how many insane things he had done while on it. He shared with me that while a social worker in Chicago he had become convinced by his Prozac-fueled delusions that a family with three children were Satan worshipers and became determined to remove the children from that home.

So convinced was he of those delusions that he even went to Satan worship meetings and allowed them to put blood and semen all over him, enduring it all in order to get more information to take the children from this family. He said that the grandparents had even come from the North East to try to stop him from doing this but he had been able to convince everyone otherwise and the children had been removed from the home. He wondered if there was any way to get the children back to their family.

Then in a case in Utah a DCF/CPS worker admittedly on Effexor informed the mother, whose children she had taken out of the home, that she carried a gun in her purse. This information was given to the mother as a threat. To give you an idea of how insane this case was the children were taken because the mother had refused to allow her daughter who had seizures to take a medication recentley prescribed to her. The drug prescribed was Adderall and the obvious reason the mother did not want her daughter to take the drug is that stimulant medications like Adderall are contraindicated for those with seizures because they trigger seizures!

So the reasons DCF/CPS used for keeping her children (they took both of her children over this) was because the mother owned a knitting machine and as a Mormon had food storage – something members are taught to have in order to be prepared for any kind of emergency situation such a natural disasters, loss of employment, medical crisis, etc. The worker told the mother that having a knitting machine was evidence of her suffering from OCD and having food storage was a hoarding disorder. So the mother agreed to get rid of both.

Of course doing so did nothing toward getting her children back. Now for the most ironic piece of information in this case….this mother had just been honored by being designated as Utah’s “Mother of the Year”!

This is your tax dollars at work! Is it any wonder that these people are being targeted by those they oppress, especially when they are then forcing them on medications that produce the majority of the mass shootings in this country?

To be fair in this case it should be noted that with Jody Herring’s previous drug charges she could have been given antidepressants in a court ordered drug rehab program rather than DCF/CPS forcing her on medication. The practice of the large majority of drug rehab programs is to take someone off one illegal drug and put them on five plus prescription medications instead.

PROZAC: Woman Develops Hypomania: Later Diagnosed as Bipolar as They All Are!

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy ( This little piece on antidepressant-induced bipolar disorder ends with the following questions: “What about you? If you went to the doctor for depression, were you prescribed an antidepressant alone? Were you asked if you’d ever had “high” moods? Did the antidepressant bring on mania or hypomania?”

When you consider that the rate of diagnosis for Bipolar Disorder increased by 4000% in a recent 10 year period that the numbers of those answering a resounding YES to those questions is VERY HIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have publicly stated over and over again and will say it once again, “Antidepressants are the biggest CAUSE of Bipolar Disorder on the planet!”

1. Mania is a continuous series of mild seizures in the brain.

2. Seizures come from over stimulation of the brain.

3. ANTI – depressants, or the opposite of a depressant – a stimulant.

4. The over stimulation of the brain (especially from the shock of abrupt withdrawal from an antidepressant) leads to mania and the diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder.

Fourth sentence reads: “. It takes hindsight to see that what I thought was “normal” behavior in response to Prozac was in fact at least mild hypomania.”

Bipolar Depression and Antidepressants

Monday August 31, 2009

My first psychiatric diagnosis was major depression, and my first psychiatric medication was Prozac. It was prescribed by my GP, not by a psychiatrist. I had a one-week follow-up visit, and then I was turned loose. It takes hindsight to see that what I thought was “normal” behavior in response to Prozac was in fact at least mild hypomania. Someone even called me “the poster child for Prozac.” This was in 1994, and I wasn’t diagnosed with bipolar disorder until 1999, after another antidepressant did a similar thing.

What about you? If you went to the doctor for depression, were you prescribed an antidepressant alone? Were you asked if you’d ever had “high” moods? Did the antidepressant bring on mania or hypomania?

4/18/2001 – Paxil Is Approved for Anxiety Disorder?!

Incredible! The FDA continues to undermine the health and safety of America
with this latest approval – as if doctors had ever noticed that Paxil was NOT
approved for anxiety before this. They have been handing it out like candy
for any and everything they can think of for years.

What is so disconcerting about this is that anxiety can be caused by two
disorders in particular – low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) or seizure activity.
Paxil can trigger both hypoglycemia and seizures. So, if a doctor does not
check to see if the patient is suffering from either of those disorders (and
that is hard to do in the three minutes it has been reported that it usually
takes for a doctor to recommend one of these SSRIs), the Paxil could throw
the patient into serious blood sugar problems or seizures.

Did the FDA consider any of that information before this approval?
Considering the number of drugs pulled from the market in the last few years,
chances are slim that they did.

So now many more ethical doctors who were not handing out Paxil for anxiety
before will feel that with the FDA’s approval they can do so without worry.
No one has warned them that the patient will be lucky to live through the
horrific withdrawal though. As Dr. Nancy Snyderman pointed out in the 20/20
special last August, it may take patients up to a year to get off this drug
safely. (Something I have been saying for years.)

Once again we have the FDA to thank. Isn’t it long past time for them to be
sued for the lives being lost to their incompetence? I guess I just see too
many families wiped out in murder/suicides and too many mothers killing their
children and too many school shootings and workplace violence incidences
induced by Paxil to be patient any longer about this.

Paxil Is Approved for Anxiety Disorder


WASHINGTON, April 16 (Bloomberg News) — Glaxo- SmithKline P.L.C. has won the
Food and Drug Administration’s approval to market its antidepressant Paxil
for treating general anxiety disorder, a new use for the drug.

That makes Paxil the first drug in its class to be approved for the
condition, which affects about 10 million Americans and involves excessive,
often debilitating worrying, the company said today.

“Generalized anxiety disorder can paralyze sufferers with uncontrollable
worry, devastating people’s lives,” said Jack Gorman, a professor in the
department of psychiatry at Columbia University. “Paxil provides a new
alternative to help sufferers regain control over their lives.”

Paxil is already approved for treating depression, obsessive- compulsive
disorder, social phobia and panic disorder. With sales of $2.4 billion, Paxil
was the world’s seventh top-selling drug in 2000, according to figures
compiled by the prescription drug tracker IMS Health Inc.

New indications are important to the company’s efforts to defend Paxil, which
belongs to same class as Eli Lilly’s Prozac, against generic competitors.

In a different class of medicines, two antidepressants, Effexor from American
Home Products and Buspar from Bristol-Myers Squibb, are also approved to
treat general anxiety disorder.
