Facts about Mass Murders, Cowardly Politicans and Media Won’t Touch

Every time there’s a shooting that makes the news, the anti gun crowd comes out in force.  Since  most of the murders were committed with guns.. so there’s some logic there.. But it’s fair to point out that cars kill more Americans than guns, and I haven’t heard any credible politicians suggesting we outlaw them..

Elliot Rodgers murder of 6 people in California seems to have every activist with an agenda, from feminists to global warming fanatics trying to use the  crime to further their cause.

So, before I get started, regular readers know Grumpy Opinions has been extremely concerned about the increasing use of anti depressants to regulate the behavior of America’s Children.. Unlike the global warming activists, I’ve got verifiable evidence to back up my concerns…

Our concern dates back to Christmas of 2010 when one of our contributors, Madpole, lost his 8 year old grandson Tyler.  The boy, who had been running a fever earlier Christmas Day had gone to bed early after opening his presents.  Madpole went to check on him shortly after midnight, and found him dead.

Tyler’s death can be directly attributed to Adderall, a drug used to control ADHD.  Tyler’s father had fought against putting his son on the medication, but school officials gave him a mandate, medication or expulsion..

There’s been a substantial increase in the number of reported ADHD cases over the last few years.  According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention.:

[color-box]
  • The percent of children estimated to have ADHD has changed over time. A historical view provides the necessary context to understand changes in what we know about ADHD, including estimates of the rates of ADHD across time, changes in diagnostic criteria, and medication treatment.
  • Recent surveys asked parents whether their child received an ADHD diagnosis from a health care provider. The results show that:
    [Read Summary]

 

      • Approximately 11% of children 4-17 years of age (6.4 million) have been diagnosed with ADHD as of 2011.
      • The percentage of children with an ADHD diagnosis continues to increase, from 7.8% in 2003 to 9.5% in 2007 and to 11.0% in 2011.
      • Rates of ADHD diagnosis increased an average of 3% per year from 1997 to 2006 [Read article] and an average of approximately 5% per year from 2003 to 2011.
      • Boys (13.2%) were more likely than girls (5.6%) to have ever been diagnosed with ADHD.
      • The average age of ADHD diagnosis was 7 years of age, but children reported by their parents as having more severe ADHD were diagnosed earlier.
      • Prevalence of ADHD diagnosis varied substantially by state, from a low of 5.6% in Nevada to a high of 18.7% in Kentucky.

You ca read the entire report Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)  , it was last updated in November of 2013

Part of the increase, according to on the founding fathers of ADHD research is bull shit, as reported in a NYT Article  “The Selling of Attention Deficit Disorder” .  In a Huffington Post article How Parents Can Protect Kids From the ADHD ‘Epidemic ‘ Professor Allen reports;

[color-box]This false epidemic of ADHD was triggered by three events that occurred almost simultaneously about 15 years ago:

  • Drug companies used their political muscle to gain the unprecedented right to advertize directly to consumers — and then used misleading marketing to convince parents and teachers that ADHD was everywhere
  • They brought to market new and expensive drugs for ADHD
  • A multi-center NIMH study gave the impression that drugs were much more effective than therapy and drugs for ADHD (a finding that didn’t hold up on follow up)

Drug companies were given the means, the motive, and the message to disease-monger ADHD and blow it up out of all proportion. They succeeded beyond all expectations in achieving a triumph of clever advertising over common sense. Rates of ADHD have tripled and drug company revenues have multiplied by a factor of twenty — now approaching an astounding ten billion dollars per year.[/color-box]

It defy’s logic that over ten percent of the nations youngsters need to be medicated..  but it does make it easier for parents and teacher’s to deal with kids, especially little boys who act like little boys.. I’m sure some you read the:  Watchdog Says Report of 10,000 Toddlers on ADHD Drugs Tip of the Iceberg—274,000 0-1 Year Olds and 370,000 Toddlers Prescribed Psychiatric Drugs

My personal belief is simple, if you can’t deal with kids acting like kids, don’t have kids, please, for the sake of your sanity and our children, don’t become a teacher and stay the fuck away from schools.

There’s growing evidence increase in medicated young people can be directly linked to another increase.. the increase in mass murder events.  And evidence that neither politicans or the Lame Stream Media want American’s to look to closely.  Before the 1990s’ while mass murder events were realitively rare.  Now they seem to occur with ever increasing frequency.

An article in CT News by   titled Group pushes for Adam Lanza’s drug history we find this paragraph about the Newtown School killers
[color-box]Records related to Lanza, his victims and the Sandy Hook shooting have been the subject of heated debate throughout the state almost since the day of the incident. Connecticut state lawmakers rushed to block public release of some records from the day of the shooting at the end of the state legislative session this spring, saying they sought to protect the privacy of the Newtown families.[/color-box]

Okay, so we know Adam Lanza’s had sever on-going mental issues, but records about the type medications he was taking are protected..   I couldn’t find out what Medications James Holmes, the Aurora theater killer had been prescribed either, but we know he was under a doctors care for metal issues too.

But if we look a little, we can find out what drugs a lot of other killers were taking..

Over at CCHR we find a  scary list of documented case.. “33 School shooters/school related violence committed by those under the influence of psychiatric drugs
[color-box]

Fact: At least 33 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking orwithdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 177 wounded and 83 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs).  The most important fact about this list, is that these are only cases where the information about their psychiatric drug use was made public. (See full list below)

The below list includes individuals documented to have been under the influence of psychiatric drugs and not only includes mass shootings, but the use of knives, swords and bombs.  22 international drug regulatory agency warnings cite side effects including mania, violence, psychosis and even homicidal ideation.

As I said when I started I’ve got a lot more evidence than the Climate Change Nut’s about what’s behind the mass killings..

The connection between anti depressants has been known for years..numerous websites have  reported on it..  Most notably CCHR International which has been documenting cases for years and has more than enough accumulated research to  justify a full congressional investigation.

But, don’t expect Congress to do much, too many politicians depend on donations from Big Pharma to risk investigating one of their primary sources of revenue..  The same holds true of the Mainstream Media, Big Pharma spends a lot of money on advertising…  If they cross the Pharmaceutical Industry all that money goes away.

It’s easier and safer from their point of view to blame gun owners and the NRA for the problem.. A class action suit from millions of parents could put a lot of big name politicians and many of the pharmaceutical companies out of  business.. that in turn  would have an impact on global financial markets..

From the point of view of Big Pharma, the MSM and a lot of Politicians,  it’s better to let kids keep dying…

  1. Tori sure does make a great point and I agree with him.

    1. Tori’s good.. while she tends to lean left, she’s got a lot of common sense,

      1. Thank you? 😉

  2. I agree, I think we are way too quick to medicate. So often when you hear the list of side effects it seems that the cure is worse then the disease. However, for some people the correct medication is what allows them to function. In the case of Elliot Rogers what I last read was that he had been prescribed medication but in fact refused to take it. I haven’t seen anything about whether he was currently in withdrawal. Perhaps not taking his medication was the problem here. (And I want to add that he killed six people, not twelve as it says above. An additional thirteen were injured.) I do think though, that in cases like here or with Lanza or Holmes or the one in AZ, their medications are not to blame. They may not have helped, but those people were nuts to begin with. I see that as a different issue from the over-medication of little kids because they have a lot of energy. There are a lot of things I’d try before I’d ever consider putting my child on long-term drug treatment.

    I want to address your first paragraph and the cars kill more people argument. There are a lot of things that kill people, including food and bee allergies, but you wouldn’t ban those either. And ban isn’t even the right word, for most people are not seeking a ban, but rather some controls to try to stop preventable deaths. Also, the car argument might be one to avoid, as the rate of deaths from vehicles and from firearms is nearly equal, and is projected to have gun deaths surpass vehicle deaths in 2015. If and when that happens it will be very hard to defend that, as cars are much more highly used and necessary to our daily lives, don’t you think? I have gotten so used to that argument that I was very surprised when I looked for actual numbers to see that, but here is one link.

    I’m going to veer way off topic now, but I want to first stress that I am in complete agreement with you about kids and over-medication and the idea of profits above the welfare of individuals. That is true in a lot of things, unfortunately. Looking at this stuff poked my curiosity, and I came across a couple things I would love for you to talk about. I’m posting three links, the first being firearms death rate per 100,000 by state, and then an article listing the ten states with the strictest gun laws and the ten with the most lenient gun laws. See what you make of this. And yes, I know that those numbers include suicides. Maybe I should look up suicide rates by state, too.

    http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/firearms-death-rate-per-100000/

    http://www.deseretnews.com/top/1428/10/California-10-states-with-the-strictest-gun-laws.html

    http://www.deseretnews.com/top/1429/10/Utah-10-states-with-the-most-lenient-gun-laws-.html

    1. The suicide rate is mind boggling and it screws around with the number’s involving harm to others..

      As for Lanza, Holmes, Rodgers and Loughner, they were nuts, no argument.. But if the stuff can cause realitively normal people to go nuts, what does it do to people who are already there?

      The simple fact is virtually every mass shooter in the last 25 years has either been using or had recently quit using these drugs at the time of the murders

      1. That is definitely a concern that needs to be examined, but it is kind of a chicken and egg question. How many people are able to lead constructive lives because of the proper medication for mental illness? How many other potential tragedies are prevented? It is impossible to prove something that doesn’t happen; maybe there would be many more tragedies without available drugs. Who knows? I’m just saying that the fact that virtually every mass shooter has been using or recently quit those drugs might be more to do with their mental illness than the drugs, or else considering the number of people on those drugs we would be seeing even more. I’m just playing devil’s advocate here; I have no idea.

        But I’d still try everything else under the sun before I’d start my child on long term drugs.

        1. I agree completely about starting a kid on the the stuff.. even if the medications work as intended, at some point in his life the child will find himself in a position where the drugs are unavailable or affordable.. Then you have all the potential withdrawal issues.

          Not all firearms stories make the news, generally just the bad ones..

          Last week the kid who cuts my grass told me he’d shot a large rattlesnake between his front door and his truck..The snake was mostly under a bush next to the sidewalk. Damned thing measured a little under 5’… He lives in a residential community with a lot of little kids running around.

    2. BTW good to see you commenting here.. I like commenting on a website a lot more than trying to cram stuff into one paragraph on Facebook.. (and accidently clicking ‘enter’ in the middle of it.

      I don’t give a whit what the CDC says about guns OR cars. The CDC is supposed to be concerned about DISEASE. Guns and cars are neither. And yes, the reason what’s going to kill us all is The Plague is because the CDC busies itself with crap which is none of their business, expertise or purview. Secondly, according to the Constitution of the United States, cars are NOT necessary to our daily lives. Guns ARE. And finally, nitpicking anecdotes, whether on the web or in the Mainstream Media, about supposed “facts” doesn’t exactly build a case for anything. Granted, we are free to opine and to cite this or that on these pages, but as faras facts, or “science”, if you will, all the malarkey about the evil gun are of the exact same status as the “extreme weather events” BS you encounter on the outlets we talk about here. 99.3% (yeah, I know, MY facts, deal with it) of the garbage we encounter in all the mass media, print, broadcast or IntricateNet. is hyperbolized gossip and sales pitches. If you want to cite an authority on firearms statistics, go to John Lott.
      When you continually have a media calling semi-automatic weapons “automatic” or “assault’, you are not dealing with reality but with a carnival sideshow. And as far as “statistics, goes, you are absolutely right when you say a lot of the gun deaths are suicides. And people kill themselves by ODing on drugs, too. Was it played up in the media that the kid stabbed his first three victims to death? Hell, no. Exactly half of the people he killed, besides himself, he killed with a knife.

      Finally, this distinction you try to make between “banning” and “regulating” is a straw man. First because anyone who is awake knows that the power to regulate is synonymous with the power to ban, and secondly, as I mentioned above, the Constitution is quite clear. There is absolutely no constitutional authority for a federal bureau of firearms. None. And alcohol and tobacco only by virtue of the interstate commerce clause, which also anyone who is awake knows has been stretched, abused and corrupted to render it unrecognizable to the Founders and the Amenders.
      Have a smiley-face day.
