There has yet to be a single mass shooting in this country that doesn’t have the telltale connection to mood altering drugs. Omaha television station KETV reported that, “Robert Hawkins, the 19 year old who killed himself and eight other people with a [stolen] assault rifle last night in Omaha, Nebraska had a history of treatment with psychiatric drugs for depression and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and was on Prozac according to press reports.” The state of Nebraska spent over $265,000 on this mentally unstable kid while he was a “ward of the state.”
Here is yet again another tragic case of a person whose mind is made susceptible to Satanic depression and deadly ideas, including “going down with fame” killing others, and committing suicide–while under the conscience-suppressing effects of these mood altering drugs. There is evidence that these drugs do more than alter moods. The suicide rates are much higher for youth on these drugs, and especially as they begin withdrawing from them. Naturally, the psychology lobby does not admit to their partial culpability in these affairs. They usually blame the “easy access to guns in this country,” and actively downplay the known suicidal effects the drugs they prescribe. Sadly, they don’t believe in conscience (at least as a divine source of help) nor Satan’s powerful abilities to distort and corrupt the thinking patterns of disturbed youth.
