Omaha Shooter Robert
Hawkins Had Been "Treated"
For ADHD, Depression
By Mike Adams
America seems shocked that, yet again, a young male would pick up an assault rifle and murder his fellow citizens, then take his own life. This
is what happened last night in Omaha, Nebraska, where the 19-year-old Hawkins killed himself and eight other people with an assault rifle. Those
lacking keen observation skills are quick to blame guns for this tragedy, but others who are familiar with the history of such violent acts by young
males instantly recognize a more sinister connection: A history of treatment with psychiatric drugs for depression and ADHD.
It all started in Columbine, Colorado, when Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold massacred their way into the history books on April 20, 1999 by killing 12
and wounding 23 people. The mainstream media virtually glorified the event, yet utterly failed to report the connection between violence in young men
and treatment with psychiatric drugs. (Both Harris and Klebold were taking antidepressant drugs.)
It's a little known fact that antidepressant drugs have never been tested on children nor approved by the FDA for use on children. It is well
established in the scientific literature, however, that such drugs cause young men to think violent thoughts and commit violent acts. This is
precisely why the U.K. has outright banned the prescribing of such drugs to children. Yet here in the United States -- the capitol of gun violence by
kids on depression drugs -- the FDA and drug companies pretend that mind-altering drugs have no link whatsoever to behavior.
Enormous evidence linking mind-altering drugs with violent acts
In 2005, I reported on this site that Eli Lilly had full knowledge of a 1200% increase in suicide risk for takers of their Prozac drug, a popular
anti-depressant SSRI medication. (See www.newstarget.com...
