The Governor of Virginia has commissioned an independent "Virginia Tech Incident Review Panel" to review all data regarding the Virginia Tech shooting.
The coroner has yet to release the the toxicology report of the shooter (Cho Seung-Hui). THIS MUST BE DONE. In addition, the panel needs to investigate the link between psychiatric drugs and school shootings.
Investigators reportedly found anti-depression drugs among Cho's belongings -- drugs documented by the Food and Drug Administration to cause suicidal behavior, mania, psychosis, hallucinations, hostility and "homicidal ideation."
If Cho Seung-Hui's psychiatric drug use is confirmed, it would bring the total to 61 killed and 77 wounded by psychiatric drug-induced school shootings. See list of 8 other school shooters (below) and the link to psychiatric drugs.
