Zoloft Causes A Murder?

Read today's headline story Zoloft Drove My Son To Kill. A twelve-year-old boy in South Carolina was put on Zoloft, a drug in the same category with Prozac and Paxil. Now protected from insanity by psychiatry's Great Drug Solution, he went to the closet, pulled out a shotgun, and blew away his grandfather, then his grandmother, one at a time.

The boy, named Christopher, had earlier been upset over his relationship with his separated father and mother. So his father sent Christopher to live with his paternal grandparents -- but not before he got "help" from psychiatrists for Christopher's despondent and depressed condition. The psychiatrists expertly did what psychiatrists do: they prescribed strong, mind-altering psychiatric drugs that make people crazy. They first prescribed Paxil to the youngster, changed it to Zoloft just three weeks before the killing, then doubled the dose a couple of days before little Christopher started shooting.

Proving to the world how competent modern psychiatry's solutions to depression are, Christopher grabbed a shotgun and bagged both grandparents in their sleep, then set the house on fire and drove away in his grandparents' car. The authorities who caught up with him said his emotions were cold and hard -- callous.

Christopher is now off all psychiatric drugs, and living with his other grandparents, who say he's once again a "sweet, quiet, laid-back boy" and "the old Christopher again."

This isn't the first time Zoloft has been implicated in a murder case. A Santa Cruz, California man was aquitted of attempted murder for beating a friend because of his Zoloft use.
