Ohio school shooter--Will the mainstream media even look for the prescription drug connection?

Health Impact News Editor Comments: The article below was written by Dr. Mercola prior to the recent shooting incident in Ohio, as was the Fox News story above on school shootings and antidepressant drugs which was filmed in 2007. As the details from the current school shooting in Ohio become clearer, will there once again be a connection to antidepressant drugs? News sources are reporting that this student shooter “was not a student at Chardon High School. He attended the nearby alternative school Lake Academy in Willoughby, which serves at-risk students. Students may have been referred to the school because of academic or behavioral problems.”

The ruling will not be appealed.

The decision has revived the debate regarding the wide

  • Good point. Great point. Even that pet chimpanzee that freaked and ripped its owner's face off was on Prozac. Seems strange but it's true.

  • The trick is they are legal, no jail. Pot = Jail. Govt and wallstreet make the money and keep the game going. Nothing new.

    I went to the dentist a while back and was given the form to list the meds I was on. The whole fucking office was shocked I didn't take anything, it was fucking strange actually.

    • @dcmfox I get the same reaction as well when I tell someone I do not take ibuprofen, aspirin, tylenol or anything like that. The last time I have ingested a pill was when I shattered my leg and the doctor gave me percocet in 2002.
      As you mentioned about the pot I think it is funny you mention jail. These pills are instantly legal and only are removed when a bunch of people die. Alcohol just keeps on killing along with cigarettes and it is totally legal, smoke a joint here in washington though More..

  • Instead, big media will use this case to try and take our gun rights away.

    Guess what; both columbine and virginia tech shooters confirmed on antidepressants.

    • @Lwe5113 Guess what? After columbine and virginia tech, right winger gun nuts would constantly say their guns were going to be taken away. It never happens. Why would you think this time is going to be different?

      Fear card on every issue. This isn't an issue. Obama hasn't mentioned guns at all. A congresswoman was shot for hell sake's and Obama said nothing about guns.

      Its the same fear shit with this crowd.

      I had a rather shock myself though to be honest. Last night, reading Feb issue of Rolling Stone. Ran across an article called- "School of Hate". More or less about kids being bullied. The girl the article was about said how just 3 days into the new year, she heard that a boy having problems just committed suicide. The boys name was TJ Hayes. The boy from Chardon name was TJ Lane. I looke More..

  • I had been prescribed Xanax, It's the worst for Bursts Of Uncontrollable Aggression . Just glad a Dr, not my own, told me about it's terrible affects on one who does use it. I notice more and more Murders Committed while taking these medications . They are right ,,depression doesn't ever manifest into rage ,,it's the Medication that does it. I can only imagine how many are in prison for acts carried out while on the medication .

  • The whole medicine industry is bull shit, they don't care about making people well. They only care about profits.
    They pay and bribe doctors to prescribe stuff that people don't need.

  • Dangerous stimulants which fundamentally alter a child's personality and cause suicidal and homicidal tendencies are good.

    But pot is immoral and bad.

    Addictive drugs that turn our children into lifeless, dangerous zombies are not only morally acceptable, they are encouraged by our society.

    But if a kid has a toke there's a problem with him. We are a fucking dumb society.

  • hmm....lock up yer guns much or is that big pharma's fault too?

    Don't get me wrong, many of the strong psychiatric medications given to kids can negatively interfere with thought life, but it's like these kids wake up and pull their own firearms right out of their parent's rooms and waltz on to school!!!

  • People are uncomfortable with the idea that someone might not be entirely responsible for their actions. Messes up the whole concept of justice.

  • Well I will be damned a bunch of school shooters had already been identified as having mental health problems prior to killing their peers...and attempts were made to help medicate them and treat the mental health symptoms prior to their rampage...it must be the pills...before pills everything was just fine....that's why we put them on meds in the first place bc they were just normal teens what a crock of ..
