outcast are made more often than born. when a child is not getting along with others 1st 2nd grade they need to be separated and placed with others with the same problem. this is not mental illness. these are angry young people giving back what they got out of life. in the u.s. we are increasingly everyday becoming followers of people that consider different people as bad. all it takes is one teacher one time to say the wrong thing to one of these kids and that's it. the class will run with it forever. they need to be removed from that environment immediately. by shutting down different people the way we do. eventually all creativity will come to an end. its almost dead now if not already. teach kids at home and expand there minds. they need to be kept away from bigot followers

Let’s take a look at this. There are numerous examples of people who have gone off on a shooting rampage and killed their classmates, their co-workers, members of their family and often took their own lives, then it was shortly discovered that they were taking an antidepressant. The apparency is that the person was mentally ill and went on a rage but when these cases have actually been looked at closer, what we find is that the person did not have any violent tendencies and in most cases was not even suicidal before they started treatment with their antidepressant medication.

Eric Harris, the triggerman in the Columbine school shootings, killed his fellow students and took his own life while taking Luvox.

Thirteen year-old Chris Fetters killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac.

Twelve year-old Christopher Pittman murdered both his grandparents while taking Zoloft.

Thirteen year-old Mathew Miller hung himself in his bedroom closet after taking Zoloft for 6 days.

Fifteen year-old Jarred Viktor stabbed his grandmother 61 times after 5 days on Paxil.

Fifteen year old Kip Kinkel (Prozac and RITALIN) shot his parents while they slept then went to school and opened fire killing 2 classmates and injuring 22 shortly after beginning Prozac treatment.

Luke Woodham aged 16 (Prozac) killed his mother and then killed two students, wounding six others.

Boy in Pocatello, ID (Zoloft) in 1998 who in seizure activity from Zoloft had a stand off at the school.

Michael Carneal (Ritalin) a 14-year-old opened fire on students at a high school prayer meeting in West Paducah, Kentucky. Three teenagers were killed, five others were wounded, one of whom was paralyzed.

Young man in Huntsville, Alabama (Ritalin) went psychotic chopping up his parents with an ax and also killing one sibling and almost murdering another.

Andrew Golden, aged 11,(Ritalin) and Mitchell Johnson, aged 14,(Ritalin) shot 15 people killing four students, one teacher, and wounding 10 others.

TJ Solomon, aged 15,(Ritalin) high school student in Conyers, Georgia opened fire on and wounded six of his class mates.

Rod Mathews, aged 14,(Ritalin) beat a classmate to death with a bat.

James Wilson, aged 19,(Psychiatric Drugs – various) Breenwood, South Carolina, took a .22 caliber revolver into an elementary school killing two young girls, and wounding seven other children and two teachers.

Elizabeth Bush aged 13 (Paxil) was responsible for a school shooting in Pennsylvania

Jason Hoffman (Effexor and Celexa)– school shooting in El Cajon, California

Another boy in Pocatello, ID (Zoloft) had a stand off at the school.

Jarred Viktor aged 15 (Paxil), after five days on Paxil he stabbed his grandmother 61 times.

hey you never know what those drugs do to a developing brain. i do know a little known fact. kids such as those that grew up in the seventy's. did fine with self medication. after high school you would often hear things like i would have never made it through school without self medicating. and lets remember none of these shootings took place until all drugs were strictly taken out of schools. you also have to think about [ what are modern schools ] before the 1970s if a kid had a problem with school he or she could easily wonder off get a job or do what ever they needed to do to keep them self's sane. school has become way to intrusive all freedoms of any kind are gone. ITS JAIL

A documentary about how school shooters and psychiatric drugs on youtube

School Shootings and Psychiatric Drugs .

We only need to ask one simple question to determine “what could have set the teenage gunman 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. That question would be hard for some politicians to ask because it might jeopardize Big Pharma campaign contributions...

Thats from :

Was this shooter taking the same drugs as the other school shooters ?

it does not matter. he would not have these problems if action would have been taken care of years ago. the mother being the teacher type did not help matters.

Antidepressants and Violence: Problems at the Interface of Medicine and Law

Was the shooter already on the drugs like the school shooters before him ?

The stupid T.V won't say between paid advertisements pushing psychiatric brain pills every 10 minutes.
