    What ever, it never use to be this way. Someone did something bad they paid for it now a days everone gets drugs to adjust their behavior. Just a conspiracy the government is doing to have more control of us. It saves them money in the prisons and takes away from our pocket book at the same time. Just like the digital t.v. it sucks THEY LIE. Any thing the government has a hand in should not be trusted. Think about it when did these school shootings start, when they started treating students with meds and stop letting them step out behind the shed on the football field throw a couple punches then it was over with. Way to go government and government backed medical programs.

    The medication for depression that Harlan Drake was taking could have significantly influenced his violence. The Physicians Desk Reference states that SSRI antidepressants and all antidepressants can cause mania, psychosis, abnormal thinking, paranoia, hostility, etc. These side effects can also appear during withdrawal. Go to www.SSRIstories.com where there are over 3,300 cases, with the full media article available, involving bizarre murders, suicides, school shootings [48 of these] and murder-suicides - all of which involve SSRI antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, etc, . The media article usually tells which SSRI antidepressant the perpetrator was taking or had been using.
