Charleston Shooter Was on Drug Linked to Violent Outbursts Like Many Other Mass Shootings

Once again we find out that Dylann Root, the Charleston Church shooter was taking SSRI drugs. You would be hard pressed to find a mass shooting in the last 20 years – including Columbine – where the shooters were not on prescription drugs used to treat mental health problems. This does not mean that everyone taking Prozac or other similar drugs will kill people. Far from it. But as the press works to make this a hate crime, they are missing what could be the biggest story of the year.

The drugs we give our young people are one potential cause of these killings. Not racism, not hate. Just abnormal thoughts that end up being acted out. But the pro drug pushing crowd and the companies making billion on these drugs are not happy when someone mentions the obvious. And this is not a sudden and new discovery. The connection between SSRI drugs and mass killings are well documented.

According to InfoWars:

As the website SSRI Stories profusely documents, there are literally hundreds of examples of mass shootings, murders and other violent episodes that have been committed by individuals on psychiatric drugs over the past three decades.

Pharmaceutical giants who produce drugs like Zoloft, Prozac and Paxil spend around $2.4 billion dollars a year on direct-to-consumer television advertising every year. By running negative stories about prescription drugs, networks risk losing tens of millions of dollars in ad revenue, which is undoubtedly one of the primary reasons why the connection is habitually downplayed or ignored entirely.

Note – the link in the story above appeared on Drudge and is apparently down at this time. It may come back later. But here is an archived link to the list of incidents involving these drugs.

So let’s go ahead with the race riots in Charleston. By all means. I’m sure that will help. And I completely understand the media’s reluctance to report the truth since the drug manufacturers pump $2.4 billion a year into advertising these drugs. And murders are good for ratings.

But in the meantime, could some caring researchers get to the bottom of this?
