    Gunman's medications

    It's not clear to me from this article whether he was currently taking it. It certainly sounds like bad news:

    From Drugs.com, side effects of the drug Fanapt:
    Psychiatric
    Psychiatric side effects including restlessness, aggression, and delusion have been reported frequently. Hostility, decreased libido, paranoia, anorgasmia, confusional state, mania, catatonia, mood swings, panic attack, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, delirium, polydipsia psychogenic, impulse-control disorder, and major depression have been reported infrequently.

    Why am I not surprised by this? I was actually waiting to see pharmaceuticals turn up in the news reports.

    Random killings seem not to be a new phenomenon. Whether they occurred as often in the past is another question. And if the truth were known, I think we might be surprised at how often pharmaceuticals are involved in current murder-sprees. I don't mean to say that they would be "the cause" but that they would be there as a factor.

    The killer was also said to be a vegan, which can hardly have helped his mental stability.

    So the side effects of an antipsychotic are psychosis mixed with sexual frustration and self control issues? Sounds like we're lucky the kids weren't raped before getting shot. Who the hell would even invent a drug like that?
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    All of them that ive heard of.

    The Thurston one(Kip Kinkle) I know for sure was on medications. I lived 2 blocks away from the school at the time it happened & if my sister hadent been home-schooled she would have been there.

    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    I've been wanting to research diet and mental health. I know in the two or three years leading up to my going Primal I had a mild depression. Being slightly vegan/mostly vegetarian during that time, I am fairly certain diet caused this depression. If he lead a life of bad eating, I'm wondering if that contributed greatly to his mental disorders.

    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Which one is driving the bus, so to speak?


    Are the anti-psychotic medications causing these people to go on suicidal rampages, or are they going on suicidal murder sprees because they're mentally and emotionally unstable psychos who just happen to be taking anti-psychotic medications?


    And why on earth would someone leave unsecured weapons aroud in a hours with someone on anti-psychotic medications!?

    Thank you. There's so much speculation surrounding this horrific event that we may never know what really caused this, other than a woman who was incredibly stupid to leave unsecured weapons around a child who obviously had serious issues.

    What is the reason there were no shoots of this type before these drugs were introduced?
