This isn't to discount anyones fight for gun control or anything like that-that is a separate topic. It is to merely suggest a causality - why these mass killings in recent decades seem to happen more and more:

Congressional testimony by an MD who has arguably studied this more than anyone else:

Where is the MD's web site?

it's his congressional testimony (not sure if he has a website or not - know he has books on the subject):

I need text. Video is corporate tech beyond my connection. If the MD is so right on his position should be somewhere on a web site.

If he is so right on his perspective should be fairly easy to communicate and referenced on the web.

What is his name?

Peter R. Breggin, MD

THX! Very good to see this kind of statement about psychiatry as it is. However its more about stopping what doesn't work or causes harm than it is about hyper effective treatment which is required to intervene in the emotions driving extreme violence.

Agree - there are probably many alternatives to the mass amounts of anti-psychotic drugs that can actually cause the symptoms they are trying to get rid of. Big-pharma wants to make money though....to me that's what this is about in keeping this scam going.

The US murder rate is the lowest it has been in 50 years. Featuring stories like the one in CT on 24/7 news outlets does more damage than handing out free guns at 7/11. These nuts want their 15 min of fame.

10 - 12K gun homicides a year is not ok though right?

And this nut is dead so I don't know how much fame he was realy interested in. Certainly he ain't enjoyin it.

Are you arguing we should cover gun deaths less?

[-] 1 points by 1sealyon (434) 2 years ago

One homicide per year is too may.

I am arguing that Diane Sawyer bears more responsibility for what happened in CT than Smith and Wesson.

That is a stretch at best,

How about the greedy corp 1% oligarchs who outsource our jobs, stagnate our wages, concentrate the national wealth & take away our ability to provide for our families.

Wouldn't creating that worthlessness in us be contributing to the few poorly adjusted to snap?

Is ABC not a greedy, 1%, oligarchical corp?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

The MSM conglomerates should be broken up to improve honest independent reporting.

The real corp 1% oligarchs are the ones who outsourced our manufacturing jobs, & stagnated our wages. Media ain't a real big part of that. Except in their failure to report appropriately on it.

Certainly any outsourcing ANy corp partakes in should be protested.

ABC, FOX & any MSM conglomerate included.

I do think there is some legitimacy to that. I think that anytime a killing like this happens all the networks should take special care to not announce the killers name and preferably not post their picture. Infamy will not be achieved by committing acts such as this - and we as a society should choose to forget those who do these things....and instead remember the ones that were lost - which is the opposite of what happens today - we forget the victims and remember the murderers....doesn't seem quite right.

The press are leaches. They pine for stories like this. It is the stuff that sells their soap and makes them rich.
