Big Pharma has nothing to do with premeditated murder

- A 7-year-old Queens boy was charged with killing a 2--year-old by throwing him off the roof.
- A 13-year-old boy in Nassau County admitted without emotion that he shot his mother dead.
- A 15-year-old Bronx girl was indicted for murdering an infant in a fire she set to her parents' house.
Jesse Pomeroy was fourteen when he was arrested in 1874 for the sadistic murder of a four-year-old boy. He was quickly dubbed "The Boston Boy Fiend." His rampage had begun three years earlier with the sexual torture of seven other boys. For those crimes Pomeroy was sentenced to reform school, but then he was released early. Not long afterward he mutilated and killed a 10-year-old girl who came into his mother's store. A month later, he snatched four-year-old Horace Mullen. He took Horace to a swamp outside town and slashed him so savagely with a knife that he nearly decapitated the child. Because of his strange appearance—he had a milky white eye---and his previous behavior, suspicion turned to him. When he was shown the body and asked if he'd done it, he responded with a nonchalant, "I suppose I did." Then the girl was found buried in his mother's cellar and he confessed to that murder, too. He was convicted and sentenced to death, although a public outcry against condemning a child to hang commuted the sentence to four decades of solitary confinement.

...the 'killer' had been horribly depressed, was taking the antidepressant Prozac and blamed the violence on the drug. Also, the girl had suffered from acute depression and tried to commit suicide before she went on her killing outing....

While I cant blame the curiosity, I think she should have picked someone older and with a purpose.
If I want to know how it feels like to take a human life, I'll prolly choose some pedophile, rapist or something around it to test my curiosity... not a 9 year old innocent. Plus I would be doing society a favor so I wouldnt care if I would get caught or not... but I would prolly try to get away with it also, just to see how good forensics really are when you chop a body in tiny pieces and carry it over 900miles, feeding a piece to each stray dog you see...
Watching a little bit too much Dexter?

There are so many things wrong with this statement. I'm tired of so many people blaming depression and antidepressants for all the bat# insane things people do. Has there been any proven cases of prescription medications making someone go completely crazy? I'm seriously asking...
I've taken Prozac. Millions of people have taken Prozac in the world and not completely lost their mind.
The same thing goes with antidepressants...
Also, what is "acute depression"? I have been diagnosed with a severe form of clinical depression on more than one occasion. I have gone through multiple major depressive episodes and I have yet to perform a completely depraved act of violence. Depression does not make someone go out on a psychopathic episode and do unspeakably awful things. In fact, depression just makes you want to do (literally) nothing... and wither away.
I can't deny that there have been cases where prescription medications have completely altered someone's state of mind, but I also can't deny that there haven't been any.

Your article also goes on to state that the boy had abused prescription drugs and used coc aine in the past as well.
Which sounds like there is more then just prozac to blame.
Even then how can one rule that was the absolute reason he killed??!! You can't. Until medical science finds a way to break down individual brains to see how exactly they are wired it's all hear say.
If someone kills drugs or not there surely has to be something else at play. To use a cope out of Big Pharm is just retarded at best and unjustifiable at worst.
