They See It But They Don't

Here is the opening from an article about mothers in Texas who have recently murdered their babies; four similar cases:

DALLAS — When a mother admitted killing her baby daughter by severing the child's arms this week, she joined a high-profile list of Texas women with histories of mental illness who have killed their children in gruesome fashion.

They go on to describe each of these mothers. One of them, hopped up on two different anti-depressant drugs at once, drowned her four small children in a bathtub.

The news people see that the four women have a history of mental illness. But what is it they don't see?

Being "treated" for mental illness in America means these women were all at least given antidepressant drugs like Prozac, Paxil, Luvox or Zoloft that turn people into killers! These drugs, chemically related and grouped as SSRIs (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitors -- don't ask -- even the psychs don't really know what that means) are the killer on the loose in the U.S. today.

There have always been killings. There have always been the insane. But when I was a kid, and for thousands of years before that, murders had motives. People had reasons for what they did. They sought out and killed someone they hated or lusted after or envied or despised. There was usually some warning -- like a lifetime of conflict with the victim, or threats -- or even that the victim belonged to a rival gang.

Now there's a new class of criminal that has crawled out of the woodwork -- in volume. These are the people that randomly kill. They kill whoever it strikes their fancy to kill. Whoever is near. They show up in their post offices or schools with automatic weapons and simply cut loose. They drown or stab their children. They shoot their grandmother and grandfather in the mouth when they're asleep. They can be any age -- a remarkable number of them are children. And they're just as likely as not to commit suicide as well.

The new class was born when we started feeding people with "mental problems" SSRI drugs -- Prozac, Paxil, Luvox, Zoloft and others.

When will the news people see the story behind the story?
