Marking 10 Years Since Columbine – Moments of Silence

While dozens of drug pushers and drugged mothers are busy blogging, twittering and calling Congress, and possibly hundreds more pharma grant recipeints or employees do the same to promote The Deadly MOTHERS Act, those who survived Columbine mark the 10 year anniversary of that drug-induced shooting. When you see this please take a moment of silence to honor those who died.

To see Michael Moore discuss Dr. Tracy’s book and the true cause of Columbine which he says he got completely wrong in Bowling For Columbine, go to http://www.drugawareness.org/ or see the full movie, The Drugging of Our Children by Gary Null, Ph.D. at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3609599239524875493&q=DRUGGING%2BOF%2BOUR%2BCHILDREN

Dr. Tracy and others are holding a press conference in Colorado regarding Columbine today. Stay tuned for updates. Given the frequency of school shootings, this is an urgent matter that our country needs to address.

The Colorado State Department of Education adopted the following resolution when learning about the dangers of drugs that Harris and Klebold were taking which drove them to commit the heinous massacre.

Colorado State Board of Education

RESOLUTION

Promoting The Use Of Academic
Solutions To Resolve Problems With
Behavior, Attention, And Learning

Whereas, the Colorado State Board of Education is constitutionally charged with the general supervision of K-12 public education; and,Whereas, the Colorado State Board of Education dedicates itself to increasing academic achievement levels for all students; and,

Whereas, the responsibility of school personnel is to ensure student achievement; and,

Whereas, only medical personnel can recommend the use of prescription medications; and,

Whereas, the Colorado State Board of Education recognizes that there is much concern regarding the issue of appropriate and thorough diagnosis and medication and their impact on student achievement; and,

Whereas, there are documented incidences of highly negative consequences in which psychiatric prescription drugs have been utilized for what are essentially problems of discipline which may be related to lack of academic success;

Therefore Be It Resolved, that the Colorado State Board of Education encourage school personnel to use proven academic and/or classroom management solutions to resolve behavior, attention, and learning difficulties; and,

Be It Further Resolved, that the Colorado State Board of Education encourage greater communication and education among parents, educators, and medical professionals about the effects of psychotropic drugs on student achievement and our ability to provide a safe and civil learning environment.

November 11, 1999

On this date, the Colorado State Board of Education passed this resolution by a six-to-one vote.

Columbine “MYTHS” & Rally In Denver

Rally in Denver for Ten Year Anniversary of Columbine

Ten years ago this month the violence and suicide caused by SSRI antidepressants gained international recognition in headlines all over the world when it became known that one of the teen shooters at the Columbine massacre, Eric Harris, had taken Zoloft in the past and was on Luvox at the time of the murder-suicide spree.

A friend of Dylan Klebold, the other shooter, would later come forward to say she had been trying to help Dylan get off Paxil and Zoloft.

A total of 12 students and one teacher would be killed, and 24 others wounded on April 20, 1999, before the two teens ended the rampage by committing suicide.

Mark Taylor was a victim of Columbine. At age 13, he was hit with between six to thirteen bullets during the rampage. After realizing he’d been shot, Mark says he laid still and pretended to be dead until the shooting ended.

Mark had to endure three years of follow-up surgeries for the gunshot wounds. He has sued Solvay Pharmaceuticals, the maker of Luvox, and blames the drug for causing the murderous behavior of Eric Harris.

A rally is scheduled to mark the anniversary of Columbine in Denver next week led by Dr Ann Blake-Tracy, the Executive Director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness, and the author of the book, “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare”.

Dr Tracy has served as a consultant in Mark’s lawsuit against Solvay.

She plans to hold a press conference in Denver to once again warn the pubic about SSRI related violence and suicide. “Media attention for this issue is hard to come by,” Dr Tracy says, “because all of the major advertisers for the media are drug companies.”

On April 13, 2009, she became outraged upon reading an article in USA Today which erroneously stated: “Contrary to early reports, Harris and Klebold weren’t on antidepressant medication…”

Dr Tracy wants to know how a reporter could miss a major lawsuit against the manufacturer of Luvox and says: “Where does he think a lot of what we have on Columbine came from?”

“Discovery in lawsuits is where we get a lot of information,” she reports.

As long ago as November 5, 2002, and article in the Denver Post specifically explained that Harris had been on Zoloft and was switched to another drug when stating:

“In April 1998, Harris told his diversion counselor he’d had trouble with his medication for depression, Zoloft. A few nights before, he had been unable to concentrate and felt restless. His doctor told him they would change medications, but he would have to wait two weeks until Zoloft was out of his system. Two weeks later, Harris reported feeling better without Zoloft and was looking forward to starting the new prescription.”

As far back as March 22, 2004, the FDA issued a Public Health Advisory with the following warning: ”Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, impulsivity, akathisia (severe restlessness), hypomania, and mania have been reported in adult and pediatric patients being treated with antidepressants for major depressive disorder as well as for other indications, both psychiatric and non-psychiatric.”

The International Coalition for Drug Awareness website has a link to the “SSRI Stories” and a collection of more than 2,900 stories, mostly on SSRI related violence and suicide, with links to full articles that have appeared in the media, scientific journals or were part of the testimony given at FDA hearings on antidepressants in 1991, 2004 and 2006.

The false denials of a link between SSRIs and violence and suicide by the Big Pharma funded MSM will likely pick up speed throughout the year because it looks like several lawsuits against the SSRI makers are finally going to make it to a jury in 2009. The first suicide trial is scheduled in early May against Paxil maker GlaxoSmithKline.

In the last SSRI lawsuit that made it to a jury in 2001, Houston attorney, Andy Vickery, won a multimillion dollar verdict against GlaxoSmithKline, in a case where a man shot his wife, daughter, and infant granddaughter in a matter of days after he started taking Paxil, before turning the gun on himself.

Facts On Recent School Shooters Taking Antidepressants

Prescription for Violence: Is there a Connection Between School Shooters & Psychiatric Drugs?
New Documentary Exposes Rampant Pharmaceutically–Induced School Shootings
22 September 2008

The Kauhajoki Finland school shooting, which left 11 dead and 2 wounded, could be the latest in the chain of psychiatric drug induced school shootings highlighted in a new documentary entitled Psychiatry: Prescription for Violence — created by the mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). With 54 dead and 105 wounded from recent school shooters under the influence of psychiatric drugs documented to cause suicidal behavior, mania, psychosis, hallucinations, hostility and “homicidal ideation,” CCHR is calling on Finland’s law enforcement and press to fully investigate the school shooter’s psychiatric drug history. The group says this is the second major school shooting to happen in Finland in less than a year: last November, Pekka-Eric Auvinen joined the growing list of school shooters under the influence of psychiatric drugs documented by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to cause suicidal behavior and homicidal thoughts. In other instances, the shooter’s medical records were never made public, so their psychiatric drug use remains in question. School shootings committed by individuals under the influence of psychiatric drugs include: 

  • DeKalb, Illinois – February 14, 2008: 27-year-old Steven Kazmierczak shot and killed five people and wounded 16 others before killing himself in a Northern Illinois University auditorium. According to his girlfriend, he had recently been taking Prozac, Xanax and Ambien. Toxicology reports showed that he still had trace amounts of Xanax in his system.
     
  • Omaha, Nebraska – December 5, 2007: 19-year-old Robert Hawkins killed eight people and wounded five before committing suicide in an Omaha mall. Hawkins’ friend told CNN that the gunman was on antidepressants, and autopsy results confirmed he was under the influence of the “anti-anxiety” drug Valium.
     
  • Jokela, Finland – November 7, 2007: 18-year-old Finnish gunman Pekka-Eric Auvinen had been taking antidepressants before he killed eight people and wounded a dozen more at Jokela High School in southern Finland, then committed suicide.
     
  • Cleveland, Ohio – October 10, 2007: 14-year-old Asa Coon stormed through his school with a gun in each hand, shooting and wounding four before taking his own life. court records show Coon had been placed on the antidepressant Trazadone.
     
  • Blacksburg, Virginia – April 16, 2007: The psychiatric drug history of Seung-Hui Cho in the Virginia Tech Massacre was never made public. Initial reports stated that “depression medication” was found among Cho’s belongings. But neither his toxicology reports, nor his recent medical history were ever released to find out whether Cho had been in withdrawal from psychiatric medication. (33 were killed and 29 injured, but this was not included in the total of dead and wounded cited above.)
     
  • Red Lake Indian Reservation, Minnesota – March 21, 2005: 16-year-old Native American Jeff Weise, reportedly under the influence of the antidepressant Prozac, went on a shooting rampage at home and at his school, killing nine people and wounding five before committing suicide. 
     
  • Greenbush, New York – February 2004: 16-year-old Jon Romano strolled into his high school in east Greenbush and opened fire with a shotgun. Special education teacher Michael Bennett was hit in the leg. Romano had been taking “medication for depression.” 
     
  • El Cajon, California – March 22, 2001: 18-year-old Jason Hoffman was on two antidepressants, Effexor and Celexa, when he opened fire at his California high school wounding five. Hoffman had also undergone an “anger management” program.
     
  • Williamsport, Pennsylvania – March 7, 2000: 14-year-old Elizabeth Bush was on the antidepressant Prozac when she blasted away at fellow students in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, wounding one.
     
  • Conyers, Georgia – May 20, 1999: 15-year-old T.J. Solomon was being treated with a mix of antidepressants when he opened fire on and wounded 6 of his classmates.
     
  • Columbine, Colorado – April 20, 1999: 18-year-old Eric Harris was on the antidepressant Luvox when he and his partner Dylan Klebold killed 12 classmates and a teacher and wounded 23 others before taking their own lives in the bloodiest school massacre in history. The coroner confirmed that the antidepressant was in his system through toxicology reports while Dylan Klebold’s autopsy was never made public. Harris and Klebold underwent “anger management” and “death education” classes.
     
  • Notus, Idaho – April 16, 1999: 15-year-old Shawn Cooper fired two shotgun rounds in his school narrowly missing students; he was taking a mix of antidepressants.
     
  • Springfield, Oregon – May 21, 1998: 15-year-old Kip Kinkel murdered his own parents and then proceeded to school where he opened fire on students in the cafeteria, killing two and wounding 22. Kinkel had been on Prozac. Kinkel also underwent “anger management” classes.

Teen Plans Columbine Copycat Massacre After Use of Bipolar Meds

Paragraph 7 reads:  “Doelitsch said that he had been depressed and that his mother had taken him off his bipolar medication because she was afraid he would suffer from other health problems later. The teen is back on the medication and is seeing a psychiatrist.”

The danger of withdrawal from antidepressants and antipsychotics is well documented.  The brain tries to compensate for the blockage of the serotonin and dopamine receptors by growing additional receptors for these neurotransmitters.  When the medications are discontinued, these additional receptors contribute to an ‘overload’ of serotonin and dopamine flooding the receptor. This is known as “supersensitivity psychosis” & antidepressant  discontinuation syndrome .  An explanation for both antidepressant withdrawal and antipsychotic Supersensitivity Psychosis caused by withdrawal can be found here.

“Teen Accused Of Plotting School Attack Blames Threats On Depression 
Allen Doelitsch Planned Attack On Boerne Champion High School, Police Say

POSTED: 7:53 am CDT August 28, 2008
UPDATED: 8:24 am CDT August 28, 2008

BOERNE, Texas — An 18-year-old Boerne man charged in plotting an attack at Champion High School blamed depression, being off his medication and a television program for the events that led to his arrest this week.

During a jailhouse interview Wednesday with KSAT 12 News, Allen Doelitsch admitted asking a 14-year-old friend to join him in a “Columbine-style” attack at Boerne’s newest high school on Monday.

But Doelitsch said he never would have following through on the threat. 

“It’s just what I thought about doing at the time,” he said. “I don’t feel like doing it all the time. I never said anything about doing it. I just said I felt like it. I didn’t say I was going to.”

Doelitsch added that it would have been difficult to have carried out the threat because he doesn’t own any weapons.

“I don’t have any guns at my house,” he said. “I really don’t want to hurt other people. There’s no point. They didn’t do anything to me, so why would I do anything to them?”

Doelitsch said that he had been depressed and that his mother had taken him off his bipolar medication because she was afraid he would suffer from other health problems later. The teen is back on the medication and is seeing a psychiatrist.

The teen, who was charged with criminal solicitation of a minor to commit capital murder, also blamed his thoughts after watching television programs about the Columbine Massacre.

“I started watching it and getting into it,” Doelitsch said.

Doelitsch remained in the Kendall County Jail on a $500,000 bond.”
