This morning a gunman who was an ex-employee at WDBJ-TV7, in Roanoke, Va came in shooting and video taping the killing while the news was ongoing. He had sent a 23 page fax to the station. After he recorded the shooting he then posted it on Facebook before he headed out in his car and shot himself resulting in a total of three deaths.
We had one like this in a newsroom in Salt Lake City on KSL but it was a shooting by a woman – an oriental woman. Two died in the attack – a pregnant reporter and her unborn baby. Nothing ever made it out in the media here about the medications this shooter was on – even from the station it happened in.
If it had not been for me working with the Chief of Police in Salt Lake City on the Family History Library Shooting and Columbine happening as we spoke and him asking me if I thought these drugs might be involved in that ongoing shooting, I don’t know that he would have disclosed that the KSL shooter was also on these medications.
I am sure that KSL makes far too much on their drug advertising to ever run a story of the truth of what happened. Even on the 10th anniversary of the shooting they ran a story but still ommitted the medication issue. Hopefully the lives of these two will mean more to this station than their advertising money and they will speak out.
EVERYONE’S NEIGHBORHOOD IS AFFECTED
This is happening in everyone’s backyard across America and spreading rapidly around the world. News used to be boring but we now live in a war zone! The Ozzie and Harriet life we all once knew is gone with all of the violence we now have in our society as a result of these drugs. Yet the ones profiting are continuing to get away with it because they know how to buy off nearly everyone involved.
ANTIDEPRESSANTS PRODUCE A SLEEP DISORDER KNOWN
TO INCLUDE BOTH MURDER AND SUICIDE
What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others including both murder and suicide as a result.
This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off the antidepressant very, very slowly.
EXCESS SEROTONIN PRODUCES EXTREME VIOLENCE
What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study demonstrating that the key to human violence is excess serotonin – exactly what antidepressants are designed to produce:
