Medications will never experience the scrutiny that guns are experiencing, yet they are ever-present in so many of these shootings.

even though it was barely touched on... ABC news mentioned medications given as a possible reason for why these instances happen. David Muir said something about it. It may have only been about 30 seconds... but it's nice to know it's starting to break mainstream.

There is no argument against more research. Do it!

and some folks want to use this incident as an excuse to empower the mental health industry even further . . . .

It makes me want to puke

calm down, nobody wants to empower them, its about making laws that work. AND the fanapt thing is a hoax

calm down . . . calm down

I am calm.

FACT:

  • I had it on good authority back in 1997 that nearly one third, ONE THIRD of the student population at the grade school I attended was on psychotropic medication - much of the diagnosis was ADHD

FACT:

  • I've a book around here that helps explain the phenomena of over prescribing in great detail, yet it isn't clear that the practice has ended

FACT:

  • many psychotropics and other medications today come with warnings, specifically regarding behavior and suicide

.

I haven't looked into the details presented by this forum post - I'm deliberately limiting the data I take in. I see no practical use in tormenting myself with details that may or may not be factual - the general social trends are more than sufficient.

I've seen it on this forum - people are anxious for answers, for solutions - one that keeps popping up is an increase in the power vested in the mental health community - a community whose diagnosis more often than not rest entirely on observations and conclusions drawn on the basis of those observations which are entirely subjective in nature.

I just want to puke

yes, medicine is way over prescribed. yes, asthma medicine comes with suicide warnings.

but the mental health community should have the power to say that someone who burns himself with lighters and is about to be committed shouldn't be in house with a dozen guns.

maybe if you tried to find a few more actual facts to think about, you'd be less tormented?

I have enough facts stuffed in my head as it is that, were I motivated, I could easily drive you absolutely batshit insane, in under three weeks. All of your friends would strongly urge mental health counseling and all you would get from them is denial and chemical restraint.

Adam Lanza wasn't the shooter. When he was found dead, he only had two handguns with him, so they came to the obvious conclusion, which they stated, that these weapons had been used in the killings. Then, they noticed the .223 shell casings and the medical examiner said the wounds (3 -11?? an individual) were all from a .223 weapon. BUT THE BUSHMASTER WAS FOUND IN HIS TRUNK. Adam's role was as disposable patsy. http://occupywallst.org/forum/sandy-hook-massacre-official-story-spins-out-of-co/

Dangerous pharmaceuticals while very real, are a diversion in this case.

What is the source for the above information? Please share.

If, as was reported universally by on-scene reporters, he was found dead only with the two automatic handguns, and if, as was also universally reported in real-time by on-scene reporters, the killing weapon was found in the trunk of his car, then there is no way under heaven he could have been the killer.

It seems the early arrival of the police may have thrown off the operation.

I thought he used the bushmaster, it jammed, & he went back to the car to get the hand guns, left the bushmaster in the car, saw police comin', ran back into school and killed himself.

Isn't that what happened? Why couldn't that be the sequence of events.?

Big Pharma should be liable. Lawsuits, jail time for execs.

FDA, govt approval process should be liable. Lawsuits, jail time for govt officials
