Mabe Adam shot those kids because he was warned some of them would be used to scream false sex abuse on him? Like those used to try that on SG-22 and all attemps failed . Well if that is the case God help us all.

Sincerely,

What drugs was the shrink giving him ?

Antidepressants may increase suicidal thoughts or behaviors in some children, teenagers, and young adults, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed.

Patients on antidepressants and their families or caregivers should watch for new or worsening depression symptoms, unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. Such symptoms should be reported to the patient's healthcare provider right away, especially if they are severe or occur suddenly. ABILIFY is not approved for use in pediatric patients with depression (see Boxed WARNING).

We only need to ask one simple question to determine “what could have set the gunman Adam Lanza off.” That question is: What psychiatric drug was he taking or withdrawing from?

Sometimes simple questions are the hardest to ask. That question would be hard for the media to ask, because after reporting the event, taking station breaks for advertisements for antidepressants and sedatives might give big media editors and producers indigestion, since their very existence depends on Big Pharma sponsorship.

School Violence
The following are reports of teens committing acts of school violence during an 18 year period from 1988-2006 (footnote 3), beginning only one year after the first SSRI antidepressant was approved for the U.S. market for adult use only. More than half of the teens committing these acts were taking SSRI antidepressants.

1988
1. September 26, 1988, South Carolina: James Wilson, 19, went on a shooting spree in an elementary schoolyard in Greenwood, killing two 8 year olds, and wounding 7 other children and 2 teachers. He was taking Xanax and for the eight months prior to the shooting had been taking several psychiatric drugs.

1997
2. October 1, 1997, Pearl, Mississippi: Luke Woodham, 16, shot two students to death and wounded seven others after beating and stabbing his mother to death. Public reports say the boy was taking Prozac.
3. December 1, 1997, West Paducah, Kentucky: 14-year-old Michael Carneal
was on Ritalin, when he started firing a gun during a prayer meeting at a high school, killing three teens aged 14 to 17, and wounding five other students, including one who is paralyzed.

1998
4. March 1998, Arkansas: Andrew Golden, 11, and cousin Mitchell Johnson, 13, went on a shooting spree at Westside Middle School in Arkansas, killing four students and one teacher. Nine students and a teacher were also wounded. In a review of the book Teenage Rampage: The Worldwide Youth Phenomenon, both boys were reported to be taking Ritalin.
5. May 21, 1998, Oregon: 15-year-old Kip Kinkel murdered his parents and then
proceeded to school where he opened fire on students in the cafeteria, killing two
and wounding 22. Kinkel had been taking Prozac and an amphetamine.
6. Pocatello, Idaho: An unnamed 14 year old held 5 classmates hostage with a gun. He surrendered to the police and fortunately no one was hurt. He was taking Zoloft.

1999
7. April 16, 1999, Idaho: 15-year-old Shawn Cooper fired two shotgun rounds in his school, narrowly missing students. He was taking a prescribed SSRI antidepressant and Ritalin.
8. April 29, 1999, Taber, Alberta: An unnamed 14-year-old student from W.R. Myers High School shot two students, killing one. He began taking prescribed Dexedrine immediately prior to the shooting.
9. April 20, 1999, Colorado: 18-year-old Eric Harris, the ringleader in the Columbine massacre was taking Luvox that the coroner confirmed was in his system through toxicology reports. He and his co-shooter, Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and a teacher and wounded 23 others before killing themselves.

Ritalin when he opened fire on and wounded six of his classmates.
11. December 6, 1999, Fort Gibson, Oklahoma: 13-year-old Seth Trickey fired
at least 15 shots at Fort Gibson Middle School wounding four classmates. He was
undergoing psychological counseling and was probably being medicated, although those records are sealed.

12. March 7, 2000, Williamsport, Pennsylvania: Elizabeth Bush, 14, was taking
Prozac when she shot at fellow students, wounding one.

2001
13. January 10, 2001, Oxnard, California: A 17-year-old gunman fired shots at
Hueneme High School before taking a female student hostage. He was later shot and killed by police. Prior to the shooting he had been treated for mental illness and was probably taking psychiatric drugs.
14. March 22, 2001, California: 18-year-old Jason Hoffman opened fire on his
classmates, wounding three students and two teachers at Granite Hills High School. He had been prescribed the antidepressants Celexa and Effexor.
15. April 2001, Washington State: 16-year-old Cory Baadsgaard took a rifle to
his high school and took 23 classmates and a teacher hostage. According to another student,“Cory was yelling and then he just stopped, looked down at the gun in his hand and woke up.” Fortunately, no one was hurt. Cory had been taking Effexor and had no memory of the incident.

2003

19. November 8, 2005, Jacksboro, Tennessee: Kenneth Bartley, a student in
high school shot and killed an assistant principal. The principal and another assistant principal were wounded. He had previously spent about a year and a half in a residential juvenile treatment program, where he was likely prescribed psychiatric drugs.

2006
20. August 30, 2006, Hillsborough, North Carolina: Alvaro Castillo, 19, killed
his father, then opened fire at Orange High School, wounding two students before
surrendering to police. He had been involuntarily treated in a state psychiatric hospital, and such commitment nearly always involves drugs.
21. October 10, 2006, Charleston, South Carolina: Tyrell Glover, 19, took an air rifle to Burke High School where he planned to hold students hostage and be gunned down by police. He had been taking an antidepressant for several years but his mother took him off the drug when she saw the listed side effects in ads. However, Tyrell began taking Prozac again for approximately six months. Whether he was taking a psychiatric drug or withdrawing from it at the time of this hostage/suicide plan is yet to be confirmed.

Truth is any number of things may have set him off. His mother evidently let a mental deficient son have access to deadly weapons. Mistake number one. He probably should have been institutionalized like most of the anti-social weirdo's in his age group.. Bottom line though is Weird people kill people. Guns don't kill people. Example is the chinese man who hacked a bunch of school kids just this week. If you want to make the schools safer, give each school an armed guard like many of the countries in the world do. Practically every country in South America have armed guards. So do many countries in Southeast Asia. I think we are just too cheap in the USA to do that.

Adam had been suffering from a Personality Disorder, according to his brother, Ryan. PERSONALITY DISORDER is the kicker. Not the high functioning Autism, yet the Personality Disorder.
3 of the worst are Antisocial, Borderline, or Narcissistic. Adam likely had either Antisocial or Borderline disorder.
In most cases, the Borderline Personality Disorder is genetic and environmental so be it his mother having Borderline (BPD) he would be at risk of genetically and environmentally acquiring the same disorder.
Many Borderlines commit crimes, i have noted a large percentage of them in Forensic Psychiatric Hospitals.
Antisocial Personality Disorder and Aspergers in Males sometimes seems to be a lot of confusion in diagnosing.
This is due to symptoms overlapping. A lot of Aspies have flat affect and also OCDs. Borderlines are manipulative, impulsive and unfocused.
Adam likely had Aspergers along with either the BPD or Antisocial PD yet the question remains was he in treatment?
And why on earth would his mother not keep her guns locked away, knowing that her son had such diagnosis' as the Personality Disorders?

I can't stand lying cheating manipulating borderlines , but its the psychiatric drugs causing the violence.

Of the 1937 total case reports of violence toward others, there were 387 cases of homicide, 404 physical assaults, 27 cases of physical abuse, 896 reports of homicidal ideation, and 223 cases of "violence related symptoms."

The adverse events reported to the FDA are known to represent but a tiny fraction of all such adverse events. This study simply identified 31 drugs responsible for most of the FDA case reports of violence toward others, with antidepressants near the top of that list.

I keep asking the same thing about Nancy Lanza having those guns be accessible, and even more important, why does a suburban housewife need an assault rifle? She is as guilty as Adam is for these deaths.

I read she was getting ready for economy collapse, stacking up food and guns. Also she was the one, who teach him how to shoot... Really? With his disorders not the best idea. I think he just played little too much Call Of Duty, took some shrink pills and went out to "play for real" unfortunately. Why did he kill his mom? Maybe she was trying to take the guns from him, maybe they argued, maybe she was on something too and pissed him off.... Who knows. I have little child myself and it breaks my heart just reading about this tragedy. Can't imagine how they feel, words can't describe the pain, sadness, hopeless, devastating feelings they are going thru. My heart is with them, I feel terribly sorry!!!!!!!!!

She had an assault rifle? I didn't hear about that.... I heard she had an ar15 style rifle, which is a civilian legal semiautomatic rifle, and some pistols.

Truth is we have a right to have a weapon to defend ourselves in out country. There are more guns in america than there are people now. We must make our committal laws tougher to make it easier to commit people to mental institutions. This mother should have done the right thing and had her kid committed. The past half a dozen or so mass killings in the USA have committed by lunatics who should have been put away. Don't take away our only means of protecting ourselves because a bunch of bleeding heart liberals are unwilling to commit people. We have the most formidable army in the world and it is called an armed citizenry. Why do you think China with 1.4 billion people hasn't tried to invade us yet. It is because we have 100 times more firearms than they do and they know it. Don't let a bunch of squeemish bleeding heart city slicking liberals destroy our liberties.

I think prescribed medications are partly to blame but the disorder alone could also be to blame. We could read all the studies ever done and still not have an answer. The problem with the drug issue is if some guy on meth kills a bunch of kids the headline would be all about a drug crazed man and not a single person would any questions about his mental disorders or what caused him to self medicate with amphetamines. You hear all the time that the reason folks use drugs is to self medicate but nobody would want to question why he did the drugs in the first place. It would be blamed on the drugs and that's it. Legal or illegal drugs are no different so if you want to blame drugs for everything bad that happens then that opens the door for guys who use illegal drugs to use that as an excuse.
