Psychiatric Drugs Responsible for Mass Shootings?

Denagoth (582705) writes | about 2 years ago

Crime 3

Denagoth (582705) writes "The Washington Times reports that "In virtually every mass school shooting during the past 15 years, the shooter has been on or in withdrawal from psychiatric drugs." The Times goes on to say "Although it is doubtful any single variable can explain what causes someone to commit such unspeakable acts as we saw recently at Sandy Hook, one common denominator surfaces time and time again, in hundreds and hundreds of cases where a “lone wolf” commits violence, murder and mayhem for apparently no reason: Prescribed psychiatric drugs, which are well documented to induce mania, psychosis, violence, suicide and murder, including mass murder for no apparent reason by otherwise non-psychotic people."

Predictably, a petition has already been posted on requesting that the administration and the FDA look into the relationship between psychiatric drugs and violence."

Cite your source. I am not saying it was or was not crap, but how often does a major news magazine pull an article on such a controversial topic?

Forbes could have at least put a placeholder informing the reader as to why it was pulled. Failure to do this brings out the tin foil hat crowd.
