There was another mass shooting, this time in Munich at a McDonald’s, in which a troubled and bullied 18-year-old Iranian-German shot and killed 9 people and injured several others and then killed himself. Some accounts are saying that witnesses heard the shooter yell, “Allahu akbar,” which would indicate an alliance with Islamic fanaticism. However, based on what I’ve read now, it seems to me that he didn’t have any religious sentiment. He was a very troubled teenager.
According to this article, “Investigators also found evidence that the Munich-born suspect had suffered from psychological problems and received treatment, but details were still being confirmed…” [UPDATED BELOW]
Hmmm. “Received treatment.” To me, that means he had probably been given one of those damn psychiatric drugs. As I have noted previously, many of the mass killers in recent years had been taking some form of antidepressant, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, strong pain killer, or combinations of them. Those prescription psychiatric drugs can have very powerful side effects, including aggressive, violent behavior, suicidal thoughts or attempts, etc. The SSRI antidepressants are known in many instances to actually exacerbate a user’s depression and cause suicidal thoughts. Some people are actually given those SSRI antidepressants when they do not even suffer from major clinical depression, but might be going through just some difficult period, and those drugs will actually cause them to have severe depression.
And also as I have written previously, for those who are taking any of those drugs and want to get off them, to prevent a possible dangerous reaction to withdrawal, see Dr. Peter Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.
But it’s not just the psychiatric drugs that are causing people problems. I have written before about the HPV vaccine, one brand of which is Gardasil produced by Merck, but which has been responsible for many injuries and deaths. And in fact its distribution has been shown to be totally unnecessary. But just as the media do not report on the common occurrences of mass shooters having been taking those psychiatric drugs, the media do not report on the dangers of some of these other kinds of drugs. The pharmaceutical companies are very big sponsors for news media outlets, and that includes PBS and NPR, for whom the drug companies are “underwriters.” I guess “underwriter” means they get their companies advertised but without commercials.
And see Sharyl Attkisson on the vaccine-autism controversy. (Yup. That’s been … “debunked.”) You see, the vaccine makers are making a lot of money on those vaccines, and that’s what matters.
And then there are the statin drugs which supposedly help people to lower their cholesterol. Dr. Donald Miller recently wrote about that whole issue, and noted that cholesterol is actually a good thing, and that cholesterol has been the scapegoat for health problems actually caused by other sources. Bill Sardi has also recently written about the dreadful statin drugs.
The original version of this post included a personal account in my family of someone who was given statin drug, and I removed those paragraphs. Maybe I’ll write about that, as well as about my own personal experiences with prescription drugs and “doctors,” at some point.
Anyway, the pharmaceutical industry is far worse than the tobacco industry, because Big Pharma is being sheepishly accepted by Establishment medicine and doctors who get lots of free stuff from those companies, and the mainstream media who profit greatly from advertising, and by the masses many of whom are taking all these damn drugs and don’t realize that many of the medical problems they are having is probably because of those drugs.
Regarding the Munich shootings, according to the New York Times:
Medical records showed that the gunman had received inpatient psychiatric treatment for two months in 2015 and continued to be seen as an outpatient, Mr. Steinkraus-Koch said. Prescription medication for treatment of depression was found in Mr. Sonboly’s home, Mr. Steinkraus-Koch said, but it was not clear if he had been taking the medication regularly.
And, according to the U.K. Telegraph:
Police found medical documentation in his room that suggested he suffered from anxiety attacks and “social phobias”, particularly when it came to contact with others, Mr Steinkraus-Koch said.
He was admitted to hospital for two months in 2015 to receive treatment for his psychological problems. He then continued treatment as an outpatient.
Investigators found medication in Sonboly’s room but have so far been unable to ascertain whether he had been taking it on a regular basis.
So, what was it specifically? Xanax? Zoloft? Luvox?
James Holmes, Dylann Roof, Elliot Rodger, Andreas Lubitz, Eric Harris, they were all taking those psychiatric drugs leading up to their murderous rampages. What those drugs can do is numb an individual’s inhibitions, so if someone may have wanted to shoot people chances are his inhibitions would stop him from doing it. But these kinds of drugs change that, in my view.
