So, what you're saying is - you'll not accept the evidence of basically anyone qualified to intepret the actual, peer reviewed, scientific data? That's an interesting position to take.
Out of interest - where do you get your evidence that disproves almost everyone who works in every facet of mental healthcare?
Please note that this does not necessarily mean that these drugs cause violent behavior. For example, in the case of opioid pain medications like Oxycontin, people with a prior history of violent behavior may seek drugs in order to sustain an addiction, which they support via predatory crime. In the case of antipsychotics, the drugs may be given in an attempt to reduce violence by people suffering from schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders — so the drugs here might not be causing violence, but could be linked with it because they’re used to try to stop it.

Forgive me if I am more than skeptical about America's health professionals, their qualifications, and their reliability.
The "Quiet Weapons" says "inoculation of behavioral drugs" can speed a child's transition from the soon-to-be extinct family unit to "state-controlled public education and state-operated child-care centers." According to Huxley, the goal is to produce "a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away ... but ... will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing ... enhanced by pharmacological methods."
Among these pharmaceuticals we now can recognize Ritalin, Prozac and Viagra, which healthy men commonly use for performance. Doctors are elite drug dealers designated to addict, distract and sedate society.
This is accomplished through "silent weapons" (propaganda and social engineering) applied in the media and schools. "When the silent weapon is applied gradually, the public adjusts...until the pressure becomes too great and they crack up...Therefore the silent weapon is a type of biological warfare.... It attacks ...their sources of natural and social energy and their physical, mental and emotional strengths..."

Mrs. Kinkel reported Kip has a fascination with explosives, guns and knives. This interest is shared by several of his friends and his mother is concerned such fascination is unhealthy and may lead to behaviors that could harm Kip or others. Kip often lies to his parents about his interest in explosives and his parents will no longer leave him alone at home...This Fall he was caught shoplifting CD's from Target and during the first week of January was arrested in Bend for kicking rocks off of an overpass at passing cars...His mother describes Kip as "very emotional." His mother is seeking psychological consultation to help her son learn more appropriate ways of managing anger and to curtail his antisocial acting-out.

If we ever needed evidence that peer review is an empty ritual, this episode provides it. Many studies have shown that peer review does not improve the quality of scientific papers. Scientists themselves know it doesn‘t work. Yet the public still regards it as a sign of quality, and says, This paper was peer-reviewed,‘ or ;This paper was not peer-reviewed,‘ as if that meant something. It doesn‘t.
Many studies have shown that peer review does not improve the quality of scientific papers. Scientists themselves know it doesn't work. Yet the public still regards it as a sign of quality... as if that meant something. It doesn't. The whole concept of scientific "peer review" is suspect. Peer review has not been and never has been a meaningful guage of the validity of scientific conclusions. It has been hijacked to stifle debate and filter out conclusions that disagree with a particular dogma. To a real scientist it is meaningless.
What Would We Do Without Peer Review?
“Biological psychiatry is a total fraud.” — Fred Baughman,
“Psychiatry” has NO, and I mean ZERO medical basis whatsoever.
Psychiatry is a Total Fraud
Not only is psychology without merit, but psychiatry defrauds the public as well. Medical psychiatrists have been trying for years to validate their biochemical theory of mental illness, but “after decades of research that has yielded not a single definitive biological marker connecting brain dysfunction to mental disorders,” we are letting doctors evaluate and treat us as if such diseases exist.
To put it more loosely, making a diagnosis of mental illness is “a near mindless act where you can speculate whatever you want and never be ‘wrong’ (if any new or unrelated symptoms emerge just add another diagnosis).” In fact, there is not a single scientific study that shows prescription psychotropic drug users suffer from an objective, confirmable abnormality of the brain.
Psychology and Psychiatry: Rotten to the Core
The US Murder Rate Is on Track to Be Lowest in a Century
This is fairly preliminary data, but Rick Nevin reports that if current trends keep up, we'll end 2013 with the murder rate in America at its lowest rate in over a century.
Analytically speaking, murder is an especially interesting crime because we have pretty good homicide statistics going all the way back to 1900. Most other crimes have only been tracked since about 1960. And if you look at the murder rate in the chart below (the red line), you see that it follows an odd double-hump pattern: rising in the first third of the century, reaching a peak around 1930; then declining until about 1960; then rising again, reaching a second peak around 1990. It's been dropping
This is the exact same pattern we see in lead ingestion among small children, offset by 21 years (the black line). Lead exposure rises in the late 1800s, during the heyday of lead paint, reaching a peak around 1910; then declines through World War II; and then begins rising again during our postwar love affair with big cars that burned high-octane leaded gasoline. Lead finally enters its final decline in the mid-70s when we begin the switch to unleaded gasoline.
This is powerful evidence in favor of the theory that lead exposure in childhood produces higher rates of violent crime in adulthood.
How will the mainstream media spin this, the latest school shooting?
Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon was on lockdown after a gunman allegedly armed with a rifle opened fire in the school. One student and the gunman have been reported to be dead. News photos show terrified students filing out like criminals, at police gunpoint, with their hands in the air.
Recent weeks have been host to a rash of shootings across the country, with much blame being cast on “right wing extremists.” This has caused a frenzy in the gun control crowd, with new legislations being introduced on the coattails of the tragedies. This sudden flurry of shocking violence has led many to question whether or not some or all of these events have been false flag operations, designed to scare the public into supporting the overthrow of the Second Amendment.
Chief Scott Anderson says shooter was 15yrold Jared Michael Padgett, a RHS freshman, arrived by school bus
A great deal of confusion surrounding a possible second shooter was made at least a bit more clear by Anderson’s noon update. The police chief said during the evacuation authorities found a student in possession of a gun, but twice emphasized it was “unrelated to this incident.”
That student, Anderson said, was taken into custody.
