From CNN’s video: One on one with Jessica Baty 3:27
CNN’s Abbie Boudreau has the exclusive interview with Jessica Baty, who was the NIU shooter’s girlfriend for two years.
Excerpt Transcribed by Jeff Fenske:
CNN: “She said he had a troubled childhood, and spent time in group-home, battling depression.”
Jessica Baty (Kazmierczak’s girlfriend): “He did cut himself….”
CNN: “She said NIU officials were wrong when when they said [Steven] Kazmierczak was acting erratically after he stopped taking his medication.”
Jessica Baty: “It was Prozac.”
CNN: “That she says he used to battle anxiety and excessive compulsive tendencies.”
Jessica Baty: “He was on medication, and he did stop taking it. And he stopped taking it because he said that it made him feel like a zomby, and that he was just lazy, and that’s why he stopped taking it.” …
CNN: “He also sent her The Antichrist, by Nietzsche.
My comment #2 from Skousen: Anti-Depressants Suppress the Conscience Part of the Brain
I’ve considered another scenario as to why those who go off of antidepressants often commit suicide or commit violent acts, considering that some of the school shooters had just come off of the SSRI, anti-depressant drugs.
Given that anti-depressants dull the conscience, as Joel states, perhaps this could also diminish the person’s ability to feel some of the bothersome effects of certain demons that are affecting their mind and/or body. Which may be a major reason why people go on the drugs to begin with, to feel better—free—though, this doesn’t get rid of the root cause of feeling bad. The drug doesn’t bring real freedom.
Then when the person goes off of a feeling (& demon) suppressing drug, he/she can then feel the full effect, not just from the demons they originally had, but from those that have come in during the drug induced, conscience dulled state—which could have opened them up to live in ways that would allow many more demons in.
Then if they go off the drug, what they feel is so overwhelming that violence can often result.

When will the doctor’s or psychiatrists who prescribe these drugs be brought to justice, huh? When? Because there are studies and constant life and DEATH examples of what happens when these guys are put on psych drugs and the havoc they wreak when they come off suddenly.
How many more hospitalizations, suicides and murders will it take before the families of the victims rise up and demand that the ‘drug pushers’ be brought before the law?
I think the problem is coming off of the SSRI’s suddenly. I agree that they could supress the demons, having left my medication behind when I went to a foreign country and not being able to get more for at least two weeks. It was a horrible experience but I never felt like going on a murderous rampage. Maybe a better monitoring of patients who are on the drugs? I don’t know, but I do know that not everyone who takes these meds are sociopaths and their doctors are not all ‘drug pushers’.
Certainly, only a small percentage of SSRI users are sociopaths. They generally fit a certain profile. And many SSRI users are also not suicidal. To have a strong desire to kill others or oneself generally requires murder or self-murder demons that would drive the person to do things he or she would otherwise not do. And the medical establishment generally pooh poohs anything they can’t verify scientifically.
Kazmierczak’s girlfriend said that Kazmierczak “cut himself.” Most SSRI users probably don’t cut themselves. But if they do, it’s probably partly due to self-hate and/or self-murder demons that they’re struggling with.
When doctors prescribe selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors to patients that have serious demonic oppression issues, they’re not dealing with the root of the problem (the hate, anger, unforgiveness, etc.), which may only get worse in this conscience suppressed state of being.
And then if the SSRI user goes off the inhibitors cold turkey, the full feelings of everything could hit him/her all at once, and they can act out on what they feel inside.
